Oct 31, 2011 - First of all, Ethan lived up to all the reviews I read before choosing which salon would best suite my needs! I walked in with an enormous head of damaged curly hair ready, to chop it all off. At first he seemed to be just a little hesitant to go as short as i had indicated, mostly for fear I may not like the result due to the severe difference, and offered to cut it short with another appointment later on if I wished to go shorter. Once I assured him I was ready for anything he suggested no matter how short, he agreed. I made sure he knew I had total faith (As should ALL who read this who need help with your own curly messes!) in his talent and experience! The fact that he hesitated to go as short as I indicated initially was not something that bothered me, quite the opposite. His hesitation was welcomed, I had a bad moment of "life's out of control, gonna chop all my hair off" that I truly regretted! When I saw my hair for the first time I was so overcome with excitement I had to hug him. It was MORE than I had hoped for, and with the reviews I had read of his my expectations weren't low! Even if you have to drive for more than an hour to get to him, do yourself a favor and pick out a great CD for the drive. You will NOT regret the decision. As long as I am within driving distance I will never go anywhere else. Thank you, Ethan for giving me a new and bright outlook on my long, tired and damaged curls! Oh, and my Husband LOVES what you did too!!!
