- Wrobyn Thompkins
Jul 01, 2011 - AMAZING is the only word that can describe Wrobyn and her salon. I read all of the reviews on nc.com before finally deciding to take a chance. After all of the horrible haircuts I've had in my life, I figured what could this hurt? I'd either take home another bad haircut or be extremely pleased and I'm so glad to report that it was the latter emotion I left with. The initial consultation is very worth it. Wrobyn took her time in TALKING to me and asking me what I wanted. I took pictures of a couple of curly hairstyles that I really adored and she was very honest in her opinion on whether or not she thought it would complement me. We decided on a happy medium of the picture and my head of curls :-) It was the FIRST time ever that I'd received compliments on a CURLY haircut because most times people notice it's shorter, but not necessarily cut into a style. She used great products (all non-sulfate) and asked what my styling regimen is and more importantly, she didn't try to sell me on anything as she REALLY understands that curly hair isn't the same across the board and what works for one curly may not work for another. She also fixed a color disaster and I left with beautiful chocolate milk colored highlights. She worked with me on using the clips to help add volume to the crown (which is something I just haven't perfected, lol). The salon was clean and very nice. She takes the time to find out what it is that YOU want from the haircut and she gave me exactly what I asked for. I couldn't have been any happier. I have just made my 2nd appointment for a trim and color and will be seeing Katie Camp since Wrobyn isn't working on weekends any more. I am excited as the reviews here for Katie are great. I would and have recommended The Palms Salon to anyone with curly hair who is looking for a great cut with a stylist who LISTENS and delivers. In you're in Oklahoma City, a visit to this salon is a must!
