Apr 20, 2010 - I've been meaning to submit this review ever since I got my cut in March. I found Valdeh through this site. The rave reviews had me sold. So, I called up to make an appointment. During that first conversation, he asked me a lot of questions about my hair to determine what kind of cut I would need. I love that he didn't try to up-sell me or talk me into other services that I didn't want (color, highlights, etc). I got to the salon, and sat down in the chair while he checked out my hair. He lifted, teased, poked, pulled, and tossed it to see how it laid, where it was flat, where it was especially curly, where it was long, where it was short. He inspected my hair. He asked what kind of issues I had with my hair, and after an initial consultation, gave me a rough game plan of what he planned to do. That's when I finally relaxed. If my curly frizzy mess didn't faze him, then nothing would. He kept cutting and checking and cutting and checking. He actually listened to me when I said one side curls tighter than the other and didn't insist on cutting it all one length. He's very personable and kind. He didn't try to sell me any product. He just showed me how to use what I have to recreate this kind of magic at home :) I can safely say my hair has never looked this good. The man is a genius and is definitely worth every penny. I paid $85 + tip, and I would gladly pay more for this cut. It's been a month, and my hair looks great. Even on days when I don't have the time to do the full hair styling routine, it still looks good. If you are anywhere near the Dallas area, you must drive up to Plano to see him. He is definitely worth the trip!
