mth105's Latest Salon Reviews

James Allan Salon - Austin, Texas, United States
Stylist:
Ethan

Jan 22, 2013 - If I had gotten this cut 5 years ago I would have really thought it was the best curly cut on the planet. Unfortunately for this salon I have had fantastically awesome curly girl cuts in the past. Ethan is very nice and very easy on the eyes and I think he probably does a fantastic straight cut and fantastic cut on someone who has all one type of curl pattern. My hair is mass mess of everything from loose curls to tight almost coil type curls and it has to be cut curl-pattern-by-curl-pattern in order for it to be stunning. I will say Ethan certainly did help with a far better cut than the one I had the 2 months before I saw him, but he used much of the same technique used on straight hair which resulted in hair that is emp….and totally flat on top and that requires at least 5 times the effort and hairspray to boot. A true curly girl cut is curl-pattern-by-curl-pattern. I wish all curly girl hair stylist would realize this and start practicing on topiaries. I think he would do a great job with straight hair and if you are use to really bad curly cuts he is a good median priced option. If you are accustomed to a very high-end curly girl cut that looks fantastic product or no product this is not your salon.

Shade Tree Studio - Emily Kleinsorge - Austin, Texas, United States
Stylist:
Emily

Jan 22, 2013 - If I had gotten this cut 5 years ago I would have thought it was the best curly cut on the planet. Unfortunately for this salon I have had fantastically awesome curly girl cuts in the past. Emily is truly as sweet as can be and very kind, but master of the curly girl cut she is not. I walked in with hair that needed to be brought into bounds, but that had gorgeous locks and when I walked out I had no curly locks and my hair had been entirely thinned out adding a good bit of weight to the look of my face. Emily dry cut the hair, but she does not dry cut curl pattern-by-curl pattern. She pulls it straight just like any other stylists and starts cutting and then she tries to put the curls back in……..what is she thinking? A true curly girl cut is curl-pattern-by-curl-pattern. I think she would do a great job with straight hair and if you are use to really bad curly cuts she is a good lower priced option. If you are accustomed to a very high-end curly girl cut that looks fantastic product or no product this is not your salon.
