- Erica, Rachel and ?
Feb 27, 2009 - Do not, I repeat DO NOT go to this salon if you have biracial hair. That being said, Erica was very nice and friendly and all that. However, Erica was not who I asked for when I called to make the appointment. I was told that Danielle would round brush my biracial curly hair. I was told that because I ASKED that and was told no problem. Well I never even met Danielle. I didnt know I wasnt with Danielle until 2 hours into the very long hair doing process. Erica started blowdrying with a regular little plastic brush and I said I was told that you use the round brush technique and she said it wasnt really her thing. And I said but when I made my appt I asked for that style and so she tried. She also called 2 other women over to help her attempt to tame my alien hair. That felt great! To be the only black person in an all white salon and have to have half the staff TRY to FIX my hair. I finally agreed to let Erica blow dry her way when it was obvious none of them knew how to roundbrush biracial hair even though its the same as roundbrushing anybody elses hair. Then she brought over more help to flat iron. So now I had 2 women flat ironing at the same time. Again - quite a degrading experiece given my uniqueness in the salon. My hair turned out alright. It was better than the Walmart stylists got it a few years ago but it wasnt as good as it can certainly be. The ends were all brittle looking and frizzy.
