- Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Jul 22, 2008 - First, a caveat: During the over three hours that I was in the salon getting my roots (sort of) touched up, I watched Beth style three people's hair. All three cuts, two of them on curly girls, were nice. My appointment was with Vickie, whom I don't think has been to beauty school; she certainly would never be able to pass a licensing test. First, she almost used a non-permanent color on my 50% gray roots. Fortunately, Beth stopped her in time. Then, she mixed the color wrong (it was like water) and only left it on 20 minutes. Needless to say, the roots were still gray, but she couldn't see that. Beth came back from somewhere (I wish she had been watching what was going on), mixed the color herself, and told Vickie to leave the color on longer. Of course, the color burned like crazy; my scalp is still inflamed, not to mention dyed brown. There were other problems during the three hours, right down to the cashier over-charging me by $20, then not knowing how to do the refund. (No, not even an offer of a discount for all the bother I went through.) I hope there is some other salon in DC that will be able to cut my curly hair; I would dread going back to this place.
