Aug 12, 2010 - I am, PROUDLY, one that drives OVER an hour for this cut. I'm sorry, but in my experience, once you experience it, it is VERY difficult to go back to the "straight-line" cut every other salon gives you. It doesn't matter WHO you go to, IMO...if it is that straight-line thing, the cut isn't tailored to YOU and YOUR HAIR and what your HAIR wants to do. That person is cutting it as if it were all the same. Man, I WISH my hair was the same all over.
NEVER ONCE did Marni push a product on me. She told me what she was using, but she never...EVER pushed for a sale. Most of the time, when my hair starts outgrowing a cut, I might as well hang it up (top-heavy, etc), but with this one, it STILL holds its shape.
I went back to the person that cut my hair before (locally) because of the drive, and after that, I just came to realize, there IS no comparison once you know the difference. It isn't about just cutting anywhere, randomly "having at it" as someone kind of put it in another review....it's about doing what YOUR HAIR wants to do and no, someone untrained could NEVER "follow" the cut to give you the same thing. It's NOT a straight cut!
And with many other experiences many of us have had, you may not like the way someone who cut it "styles" it, but the cut can be just amazing. So you go home and do it YOUR way..it's happened to all of us so I know everyone knows what I am talking about.
I am not looking back. I will drive the 1.5 hours and deal with traffic for this.
The hair BEHAVES. The hair is HAPPY. The hair KEEPS its shape growing out.
Marni is my hero. I have been shown the way :)
