Scott Musgrave Hair - Cary, North Carolina, United States
Stylist:
Scott Musgrave

Nov 06, 2013 - (This is an update from my previous 4-star review of Scott about 7 months ago.) After my first hair cut with Scott, I wasn't 100% thrilled with the outcome because it was a little shorter than I wanted. I didn't mention anything to Scott afterwards, but he called me a week later to see how I was liking my cut (talk about caring for your customers!). I explained to him that it was shorter than I wanted, and he apologized sincerely and offered me a huge discount on my next visit. I knew already that I wanted to give Scott a second chance because he is a such a smart guy when it comes to curls. I'm so glad I did! On my second visit, Scott complimented me on how healthy my hair felt since I've switched to water soluble products. He explained how on my first visit my curls were weighed down by all the bad products I had been using and how this gave him a false idea of my curl spring factor. For my second cut, he spent nearly an hour shaping up my ends, adding a few stylistic elements, and left most of my length--all free of charge. I love my hair now! Scott listens to his customers and follows up to guarantee satisfaction. He's the only stylist I will allow to touch my curls.

Apr 17, 2013 - After my much anticipated appointment with Scott, I had mixed emotions. First of all, this guy knows his stuff. He is undoubtedly the expert in curls south of the Mason-Dixon. Going to his salon is like going to school. Scott takes the time to explain and illustrate every step of the cut and curl care process. His recommendation of products for me was spot on, and I loved the way they felt in my hair. On top of being super smart, he's just a nice guy--very down-to-earth, very personable. So why did I give him only a four-scissor rating? Because my hair is about 2 inches shorter than I wanted it to be. I asked him to cut it to where it touched my shoulders. It touches my shoulders enough--soaking wet. But when dry, it is way up by my chin. This means I'm going to have to straighten my hair for the first time in months so that I don't look like a poodle in my best friend's outdoor wedding this weekend. I don't even have enough to gather for an updo. (sniff) I know I will love it when it grows out, and I will most certainly be visiting him again in six months or so (however long it takes to grow it back out). Maybe it's just my karma with haircuts, but I would encourage prospective clients to be very clear about short or long they want their hair to be AFTER it dries.

Chris McPherson

Aug 25, 2012 - I had a pretty good experience at this salon. I hadn't had a good cut in, well, my whole life. So, when Chris took the extra time to analyze my curls before he started cutting, I breathed out a sigh of relief. He did a dry cut before sending me to get my hair washed, and then did some touch-up snips after he had styled and diffused my hair. I remember thinking that it was a little shorter than I had wanted, but maybe it's just because my curls were finally doing what they were supposed to be doing. The best thing Chris did for me that day was introduce me to Davines styling products! These have really changed my life and my morning routine. I love the purple anti-frizz serum with GSE and the red bottle defining styling gel. I have since ordered a year supply from Amazon. He also taught me that I need to apply those products while my hair is essentially sopping wet instead of towel dried. I now keep my styling products in my shower and when I step out, my hair is clean and styled! Next time I go back, I will ask him to give me a little more shape to my style for a more mature and polished look. I have a feeling he won't have a problem accommodating. This is as good as it gets in the Columbia area, folks!
