Nov 13, 2009 - Please note that this review is VERY picky and I need to say up front that Sara, my stylist, was VERY nice and this is in no way meant to reflect on her as a person. Sara gave me a good, basic cut and does know quite a bit about curly hair. I was a bit surprised that she shampooed my hair, even though #1 I told her that I just showered and #2 I told her that I don't use shampoo. (She gave me reasons why I should use shampoo, but, for the most part, shampoo is still against my curly girl religion.) She was very concerned about time and watched the clock a lot. When she was done, I was charged for a shampoo and blow dry, even though I only went in for a cut and I asked her not to blow dry my hair(I left wet). I didn't know that I was charged for this until I got home and looked at the salon's price list and I did not call back to complain because overall, the experience was good. Note: I am SUPER picky about my hair so read this with that in mind. The stylist put a very smelly, sticky product in my hair and I had to go home and rinse it out because the smell was overpowering. (It was an Aveda product in a small, gray bottle.) As I examined my cut, I noticed that my hair was not evenly layered all around. I bought a pair of styling sheers and cut the front to match, which worked just fine. Sara admitted that she only cuts hair part time, so you may want to make your appointment with someone else. She was very nice and showed me some styling techniques, which was a bonus, but I won't be back.
