texcurls75's Latest Salon Reviews

Norwood & Company - Arlington, Texas, United States
Stylist:
Anthony

Apr 12, 2010 - I reviewed this salon about six months ago, after I had been going there about a year, but since Anthony has started cutting my son and daughter's hair, I wanted to review again. So, he's been cutting my hair for about 18 months, I guess. I found him on this website, and it was the greatest thing ever. I love my curls. He did more than dry cut my hair, he taught me to take care of my hair. Not washing it everyday, how to dry it properly, etc. Everyone I know comments on how soft and healthy my hair looks, where used to it was hard and crunchy curls with tons of product, now it's minimum product. I am no longer afraid to go swimming, because my curls will be gone! He is extremely professional and always spends time looking to see what is necessary, instead of scheduling color/cut every six weeks. Sometimes, I think "Don't you need the money? You should cut it more.", but he wants the curls to grow where they are cut at the right time. I WILL say, since lots of people have complained about the different lengths, my hair looks GREAT curly, but with this type of cut, I am unable to do it straight anymore. There are just too many layers. My son is 2.5 years old. Anthony gave him his first cut because I was worried about what to do about his curls. It was a cute cut, but I didn't think much of it, so I took him to a kid salon and a Pro-cut type salon twice and they butchered it. I was so frustrated, so I drove 45 minutes back to Arlington and over the past six months, Anthony has patiently worked with his hair until it grew, and now he has the cutest cut ever. Anthony is so patient and creative, because 1.) He is not a kid-cuts, but he obliges me. 2.)I had no idea how to cut a curly haired boy's hair, but he looked at it for a long time and made suggestions before cutting it and now we LOVE it. My husband who could care less about haircuts, LOVES it and doesn't want me to take him anywhere else. As far as straight cuts, the same goes for my daughter (4.5yo) I took her to kid cut places and they cut it straight across the bottom. She has straight hair with lots of body. Anthony cuts it in a really cute style for her age and dries it straight, to where if I had straight hair, I would want it like hers. As far as customer service, I went to this salon back in 2001 to the owner's son. I was traveling with work a lot and had to reschedule several appointments and might have missed one appointment, if that. Mostly it was rescheduling. I was "fired" as a client. It was VERY odd. I have never had that happen in a customer service industry. In fact, when I realized it was this salon when I found raving reviews about Anthony, I was apprehensive about booking. But, I am so glad I did. Susan is very friendly and I have had to reschedule a few times, due to having two kids and my own business. I pray I never get "fired" again because I am really, really happy with Anthony.

Jan 20, 2009 - My appointment was Dec. 16, so as you can see, it has been a month. My hair was really dried out from over-processing (according to Anthony) and I had recently (within the last two months) had a bad cut, ugh! In desperation, I was searching the internet one night, trying to figure out what the heck was going on with my hair. It's like playing roulette each morning, some days I have great hairdays...some days awful. I read the reviews of several salons and was most impressed by all the nice things said about Anthony. Anthony was GREAT. He spent ALOT of time talking about the texture of my hair, the type of curls I had, products, how to use products, things I had never heard of...like not to wash with shampoo everyday. He cut my hair dry, as you have heard of by now! It was interesting. He did some highlights, then washed, dryed, and I was on my way. He told me before I started my curls were in bad shape and the cut/color would not be a "quick fix." So, to say the least...I was disappointed with my hair when I first saw it "finished." I still had a lot of frizz and not very thick curls (which I knew my hair was capable of!) However, when he must has seen my disappointment, he showed me the back of my hair....the less over-processed part and said this is our goal, I was like WOW!!! So, the reason I waited so long to post was to see the changes and be able to rant and rave in excitement about Anthony's knowledge! I have only been conditioning now for a month...sometimes I just rinse. I use the products he recommended (Aveda Be Curly) and put it in while in the shower and never brush my hair anymore. A month later...I walked in a hospital room to visit a friend this morning and saw a group of friends I haven't seen in a while...and everyone said "wow, your hair looks GREAT!!!" It has been a SLOW process...but I am so grateful to have found someone that "gets" my hair. The necessary cut, color, products, how to's, etc. AND I can not say enough positive things about Anthony. He was very positive, yet very honest. I admire that in any service person. The salon has a really cool and spa-like feeling...so you leave feeling relaxed. The staff was VERY friendly!!! Anthony offered products but didn't push them. He also said I would only need a haircut two or three times a year...now that's cool! I am scheudled again in February for highlights again. Give him a try...I promise you will be pleased!!! ...and by the way...bad hairdays now...about 1 in 7, usually because I get in a hurry and try to dry it too fast.
