Curl Ambassadors, Earth A or Curly Hair institute? help!
The curl salon section isn't really helping me decide where to go. The reviews for the above salons are *shining* but no curly members have posted their names after their reviews. It would be nice to be able to have some sort of idea who is writing these reviews (members or not). I have so many questions! ahhhhh....

So I can't decide.

I am really on a tight budget but I want to get a cut, base color & some highlights done. Already $$$, I know :( I have never been to these salons.

Could any reviewers for any of the above salons let me know how your experience went and how much you spent (so I have an idea)? Thanks in advance :)

I can't really help much but can give you a bit of information.

I used to go to Jonathan Torch a number of years ago (at his previous salon before he opened the Curly Hair Institute) - I found that he was becoming increasingly expensive and although I wasn't unhappy with his cuts, I didn't think they were worth what they cost. I think his hair cuts are well over $100 now so it may not suitable for you if you're on a budget. Other stylists at the salon may be cheaper.

I don't know anything about Earth but from the address, it probably caters to the Yorkville crowd so it may be expensive. (Lots of really good reviews on the salon part of this site though).

The Curl Ambassadors is likely to be the cheapest option. I haven't had my hair cut there but have been in to the salon a couple of times as they sell Jessicurl, Curls and Deva products. Everyone I saw walking out of there was a wavie (rather than a curly) so I couldn't identify enough to decide if I would have my hair cut there.

I'd also love to hear about anyone's actual experiences at these salons.

Thanks for your thoughts minix!

I emailed Curly Hair Institute asking for price quotes and they didn't respond to me :(

On the Earth A Salon their website quotes:
Hair cut (not sure if it includes style): $40-$70
Color: starting at $100

Curl Ambassadors emailed me with this info:

Half head hi-lites approx $80.00

Cut/wash/style- $70 for med length and $80 for long curly hair

They also have a promo on for December: Mon/Tuesdays 20% of hi-lites, or on Fridays 25% off Cut/and colour

Still not sure where to go!! I may just hold off on a cut/color till after the holidays (when there's more money to go around!) lol! :roll:
