Stylist: Katie

I unfortunately took the advice of the other reviewer and went to see Katie. My experience with her was probably the worst I have ever had in a salon. Not only did I wait for 1/2 an hour passed my original appointment time, she had absolutely NO idea what she was doing with my hair. The cut itself was fine enough, but afterward she was putting the worst products in my long, curly hair (pomade??? along with like 5 other things that felt like glue) when it was already partially dry. It turned out huge and frizzier than I've seen in in a long time. Her nervous excuse was that because it had dried during cutting and combing it would be frizzy (um, wet it again, use curl creams, twist it, use a diffuser = the basics) Isn't the whole point of going to get your hair cut to come out with professionally styled hair? Katie desperately needs to brush up on her curly hair skills, because they are currently non-existent. She was a nice enough woman, even though she made the usual awkward comment about how much hair I have because she had no idea what to do with it, but she might be more appropriate for someone who is looking for a very short, young, edgy haircut, which is what she has.

Stylist: Katie

Katie has done wonders to make my naturally curly/wavy hair work for me, not against me. I am 30 years old and have never been so happy with my hair in all my life. When I wanted to keep the length she did a great job and when I wanted to go short she made it look awesome. When I moved to Milwaukee I searched for reviews to find a place to get my hair cut and ended up at Brio's. When I told the stylist there that I wanted to try going short he said "You only think you want short hair because you don't like your hair now." He then proceeded to ignore everything I said, cut my hair the way he thought it should be and made my hair into a giant fluff ball of curls. (not what i was going for) In contrast, Katie listened to everything I did and did not want and then helped me to find a couple pictures that were similar to what I wanted and cut my hair right into submission. She really took the time to listen and get it right. I have read again and again that you shouldn't get a short hair cut if you have a round face and curly hair. But when I really wanted to try something short, she helped me find a style that i absolutely love. I can't recommend her enough.
