marylou232's Latest Salon Reviews

Salon Sessions - Pasadena, California, United States
Stylist:
Brenton Lee

Jul 31, 2010 - I have Taylor Swift like curls, but on a biracial head. After moving to Los Angeles, I continued to travel back to my hometown in OH to have my hair cut because I didn't know where to start in LA. So many salons, lots of hype! I have had so many bad experiences with hair stylists, especially not being able to give me a finished style, that I was afraid to overpay someone in LA. Upon lots of research I happened on Salon Sessions, which uses Bumble and Bumble products that i use, and Brenton Lee. Brenton is great! I highly recommend him and something I rarely do. I have found stylists who can cut my hair, but still not get the end style. i would always have to go home to wash it out. Brenton is the first person ever where i can walk out of the salon and then feel comfortable enough to go out to dinner. That's huge!! Brenton, is awesome at color, blowouts, you name it. I had virgin hair before I came to him, but I felt so comfortable after my first cut to let him die my hair and give me highlights. I have never gotten more compliments! Don't be scared when you meet him, he is young. But he is talented and I highly recommend him!

Atmosphere Salon - Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Stylist:
Gregory

Apr 22, 2008 - I LOVE LOVE LOVE Gregory! Of all the places I have had my curly (3b) hair cute, Gregory has been truly the best. I just want to pack him up and take him everywhere! He talked me through all the different sections of my hair and the different curls each section had. We had a full on discussion about products and all the crap out there. He even recommended what salon brands and drugstore brands are the best. I even had him cut my boyfriend's thick Mexican hair, and it was the best, sexiest hair cut my guy has ever had. LOVE GREGORY!!!

Maxine Salon - Chicago, Illinois, United States
Stylist:
Rob

Apr 22, 2008 - Every city I travel to I make sure to check Naturally Curly. com to figure out where to get my hair cut. Here in Chicago, I had held off on picking a place because not many of the salons had more than 2 reviews. I went to the Maxine Salon, just based on the 2 previous reviews. I was a little nervous, because this place looked very avant garde, not my usual salon atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised by everything that happened upon my first appointment ith Rob. My hair is a 3b and was quite long and had gone into the dreaded triangle shape. Rob listened when I said I wanted it shorter, to move, and have a better shape. He cut it wet, which I usually dread, but it worked out fine great! He gave me a fantastic curly bob with a nice round shape. He diffused it so we could check the shape, styled it while dry and then went back in to do a little contouring. I absolutely love this cut and have receieved so many compliments! I would highly recommend Rob to anyone in the Chicago area who has curly hair. The best part about him is that he wasn't too much of a chatty Kathy and he didn't push a whole line of products on me. I also returned 2 weeks later and had a blowout. It was the fastest blowout I've ever had. It only took an hour and looked fabulous! Everytime I've called the salon to get an appointment I have been able to get right in. Another plus to this place.
