- Brenda C.
Mar 27, 2013 - I went to the Rainbow Room because of the glowing reviews on this site. I thought I had gotten some bad haircuts in the past, my whole life really- but this one took the cake. I have a LOT of great wavy/curly hair which most would consider short, but had grown it out for 4 months prior to this cut so there would be more hair to create an actual style. I have always had problems with stylists not giving me a cut with any style or flair and had really hoped to get that at the Rainbow Room. Instead, I got a very uneven and choppy cut. Curls were cut off or cut halfway through the curl, making some of them stick straight out. I can see the blunt- straight across cut at the bottom of all the "curls". My top was left way too long, giving me the dreaded mushroom head look (in addition to the pieces sticking straight out on the sides). The back bottom layer is uneven and the layer above that has a big chunk cut out on just one side. Also have weird "indentation" spots in some bad places. My hair is now frizzy, due to the uneven cut. I don't think the Ouidad method was meant to create frizz. I have many different layers and lengths all over- completely disconnected cut. I asked that it be cut so I could wear it straight/blown out also and that is even more of a nightmare than the curly, if that is possible. I now have to pay someone else to fix this cut. I put in a call to the owner of this salon but no call back, hence this review. For as good as I had heard Brenda was, this was in my top 5 bad haircuts, made worse by the fact it cost $85. I had really high hopes for this, an actual curly cut- by someone who has curly hair----I had gotten a better haircut last summer for $15 and was very disappointed in this experience. It will make me think twice before going by reviews in the future!
