Aug 08, 2012 - I went to Anthony's for the first time because I saw all the great reviews of Melissa. When I got there, I was immediately taken aback because several employees were hanging around at the desk and not one of them asked my name or tried to help me. Instead, they were trying to decide on what to order for lunch. Very unprofessional. Eventually a man walked to the desk and saw what was happening. I believe it may have been the owner. Anyhow, he took my name and Melissa came out to see me. Melissa is very nice and very knowledgeable--if you have "normal" curly hair. By normal, I mean hair that is dry and difficult to manage. I have very fine, soft, curly hair. I immediately told Melissa I had no issues with frizz or dryness. I showed her the products I was using and told her I was having issues with my hair being flat and over-conditioned. I told her I wanted a cut and product recommendations that would help with volume. She agreed that I was over-conditioned and had a strange/different hair type. I thought things were sounding promising. However, I left disappointed. Now, don't get me wrong. Melissa is very nice, takes her time, and gives lots of suggestions. Unfortunately, I felt the suggestions were one size fits all. She put products on my already over-conditioned hair that made my hair flatter and more over-conditioned. She clearly used the same products on each curly that walked in the door. It didn't matter that my hair is so fine that I really couldn't handle the amount or type of products. The cut was ok. Not bad, but I've definitely had better. With all the hype about deva cuts, I expected a bit of a transformation. I suppose my expectations were too high. In any event, I won't be back. Melissa just wasn't for me.
