Mar 05, 2011 - I went to Jodi solely because of these reviews. Going to get my hair cut/syled/colored has always been a less then enjoyable experience. I have to many nightmares that I would rather forget about. Let me first by saying Jodi is just wonderful. She knows so much about curly hair. Very easy to talk with, very personable. Upon sitting down in the chair - I told her my concerns - I do not like my hair short - everytime I have gone for a trim, I have ended up with hair above my shoulders and as you curly heads know, growing our curls takes a long time. I was worried about my color which was so ugly because I tried it on my own out of a box about a month ago, which made my hair a golden color. I searched pictures on the net for the color highlights I was leaning for. I did feel kinda strange bringing in a picture but when I told her I had one, she was all about it. Jodi said she could pull the coloring off - which she did ( A+ ) Now for the cut. The last time I had my hair cut was in 2003. That was when it was butchered ( in my profile pic, ) not by choice. Prior to that pic, it was mid back lenght. I obviously developed a fear of the salon - I compare this fear to a fear somone may have of the dentist. BUT reading these reviews gave me the curl courage to do this. She explained she would just cut the stringys off and give me some layers. She did not want cut all the dead ends off because then I would be shorter then what she felt I would like, so she suggest we just go take it slow. What she did - she did cut off the stringy ends, gave me layers, cleaned me up. I could not even tell she cut it as far as the lenght is concerned. After my hair dried, oh my gosh, my hair cut looks amazing. I can see the layers. I like that she did cut each and every dead end off without sacrificing the length. I noticed when she was highlighting my hair she did NOT brush it out like ALL the other salons have done. Every place I have ever been to ( besides Jodi ) brused and ripped my hair to shreds before a highlight job, not good. I read that should not happen and guess what -- It didnt - she didnt !!
She was busy so I did offer to leave wet but she would not have it. She said she wanted to make sure I was happy with the color and the cut - she wanted to see it dry. Yay ! So she dried it and I can not beleive someone at a salon dried MY hair. What a beautiful experience. My hair feels so free, so beautiful looking. The color is just right, perfect. I feel like a million dollars. I scheduled to go back in six weeks which I am doing. She is a blessing to the curls - a genius. I am so happy with her. I would also like to add when I scheduled with Jodi I made an appointment to get my brows done. I would recommend doing this aswell and the girl who did my brows was Sarah. She too did an amazing job. While my color was setting in I went to get my brows done - worked out perfectly. Sarah was awesome. I love my brows - they are perfect, just perfect. Sarah was so very sweet & my brows are just the way I wanted them. If you have any reservations about going - dont because If I can do it, you can do it. One more thing, I to have always left wet from a hair place - have to go straight home to do your hair. Jodi finshed me up - I looked like a star - came home and my hubby took me straight out to dinner - I did not even have to touch my hair. One more thing ( i promise ) another thing I really love that she did with me was explain to me what she was doing while cutting my hair, what products she was using - she also gave my hair a conditioning treatment too, which was awesome ! She gave me a play by play as to what she was doing which made me feel so comfortable & relaxed. I learned alot about my curls yesterday. Love yourself & your curls - Go see Jodi Jones !!! AND Sarah for yor brows !!!!!!!! Thanks ladies for the reviews - im so happy.
