Vero for Hair
- Oakland, California, United States
Sep 09, 2011 - I am a die-hard Madusalon fan, but I live in Oakland, and happily make the trek 4x/year for the best haircuts ever from Ivy. However, I just had a baby and can't be too far away since I'm nursing, so I booked an appt with Laura on NC reccomendations.
Firstly, I was disappointed to see how totally un-stylish all the salon workers are. I don't know if when I described 'edgy' any of them would have any idea what I was talking about. One of the stylists was wearing hiking books and another was in running shoes and a hoodie. Really? These are your work outfits? The whole atmosphere is FRUMPY from the decor to the stylists to the background music so I didn't have high hopes going in.
Laura is a nice lady, and she does do the deva cut. It wasn't a bad haircut, per se, but it had absolutely no style or personality - just looked like a regular layered curly hair cut. It's fine, if you are relatively conservative and you don't mind having kinda poofy, round hair. It's also about half the price of Madu.
However, I cannot wait to get back to Madu to get my style back.
