Never in my 30 years of life have I come home from a haircut and cried nor have I woken up the next morning and cried! I made it very clear to the woman who was doing my hair in our 10 15 minute initial chat that length was very important to me I said it multiple times she said oh I totally hear you I completely understand I talked about how all I wanted was a trim because again length was very important to me she promised I would not get one of those bad haircuts and she lied! No where did I give her permission to cut 4 to 6in off of my hair!my hair grows extremely slow on every part of my body especially my head it's going to take me 3 years to grow this out! I am not able to put my hair up in any of the ways that I used to which are extremely important to me! When I went and finally sat down in the hairdresser's chair she touched my hair to the back of her seat and said that that was where my length was going to fall instead it is 4in above that nowhere did I tell her please cut my hair that is down below my shoulders up to my collarbone! She didn't even let me see the pile of hair that she cut off of my head she made sure to quickly turn me around so I could start looking in the mirror while she cleaned up! I would have had a better result if you would have washed and set my curls the way that your products do before even trimming my hair at all and I didn't get a trim I got my hair hacked off and it's not even I don't like layers I never have I'm not into big poofy hair! I can't believe I paid you $155 for this truly a waste of my hard-earned money! It would be really great if you would offer new clients a consultation with a wash condition and curl set without needing to have a cut! I know better than to allow people to cut my hair and she promised I would not be having one of those nightmare haircuts but she gave me the worst haircut of my entire life! Upon reviewing my intake form that she wrote information on she didn't even write on there how important length was to me she wrote on there no wispy ends that's not my goal my goal was to get as well maintained of hair with as much length as possible even if that meant doing a micro trim now and doing another micro Trim in a month or two but I did not want this much cut off of my hair! I truly feel like I was not listened to at all it didn't matter what I said she was doing her own thing because you know she's the trained professional and I'm not! My hair isn't even there are huge patches that have shrunk way more than others I look like I got a choppy Bob and a cheap haircut!Never again would I let her touch my hair! I trusted her and I was betrayed!

Wow! I've been to too many stylists who haven't lived up to the hype. Yukiko isn't one of them. She turned my long scraggly curls into a gorgeous head of springy ringlets. She definitely knows what she's doing.

I, too, am sadly disappointed with my hair. Julia provided great education about curly hair, but my haircut is the worst I have ever had. I told her to cut about 2-3 inches off my hair & she cut 5-6 inches off. The left side of my hair is approx. 3 inches longer than the right side.  And what really upsets me is that I sent them an email along with a picture of my hair & I got NO reply. They do not care if you are unhappy. They do NOTHING if you are dissatisfied with the results. It was an expensive lesson!!!

I almost never leave reviews on websites, but my experience at OlyCurl is worth raving about. I am still relatively new to embracing my curls – I swore off the flat iron about a year and a half ago – and find I still have much to learn about how to best care for my hair. Yukiko and Julia are incredible educators who never fail to be knowledgeable, patient, kind, and hilarious. They listen carefully to my needs, my experience, what works and doesn’t, and always help me find the right strategies for making me feel confident with my hair. I feel SO LUCKY to have them here in little Olympia!!!!!

Sadly, this was the worst haircut I've had in a long, long time.  (I've worn my hair up almost every single day since.)  I went in with high hopes, because I've only ever had wet cuts and I was really looking forward to seeing what a Deva-cut and style would do for me.  I've been CG for over 10 years, but have always had wet cuts.  I will say that Yukiko and her assistant were very nice and very knowledgeable on the CG method.  I just didn't get what I went in for.  I wanted a more layered look (or a less all-one-length look), with some face framing.  What I got was almost all one length, with about 3" of layers at the very bottom.  My hair is down to the bottom of my shoulder blades, so it just hangs without the shorter pieces I'd asked for.  And the styling was pretty awful.  I had these weird, straight pieces hanging down in front.  They left a LOT of water in before clipping it  and putting me under the dryer, so I think the weight of the water pulled the curl out of those pieces.  I usually plop and then air dry for good bounce and curl definition.  And because I was under the dryer for so long, I went over the 2-hour appointment and had to pay extra for a 3-hour appointment.  I'm going back to my usual stylist next month, and can hardly wait!  I'll consider Olycurl an expensive learning experience.  At least I got the lust for a Deva-cut out of my system!

FINALLY! Someone who "gets it" in Thurston county. I have been searching for years to find a curly specialist who subscribes to the CG method (which makes my hair happiest!) and she is even in the same area as me. She listens, does great work, explains very well, is easily accessible, and overall provides an excellent experience. I already got compliments from strangers on my way home from my appointment--always a good sign!

After long, painful searching for a stylist who recognizes that curly hair is not the same as straight hair, only curly, I have been to what feels like every upscale salon in multiple metropolitan areas. Turns out, the expert is in a strip mall in Tumwater, behind a Dairy Queen! From now on, even if I'm up in Seattle, I'll make the trip down for a cut. I got a great cut, fantastic tips, and actually went home with my hair looking great! (With curls, the best I can hope for is a stylist who doesn't insist on blowing it dry, usually). And now, a week later, my hair is so happy and healthy! I paused in giving a 5 sheers rating, since I didn't go in for a couture cut, but the cut I got was just SO GOOD that even if Yukiko ends up being terrible at something designer, she'll still be light years better than the other stylists I've seen.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I went in pretty confident I knew my hair. Quickly I realized that there was sooooo much I didn't know! Yukiko is not only great at styling hair, but she is also an expert when it comes to the health and longevity of your hair. She looked at my current hair products, assessed the chemical content, and was able to give me concrete things to look for and avoid when it comes to the types of hair products I use. As our time went on she showed me many techniques to encourage my curl while keeping it hydrated. She is also quite funny and VERY nice, so overall it was THE BEST experience I have ever had in a salon. Not only did I walk away feeling like a hair expert, but I also came away with a killer haircut. I recommend Yukiko to any and everyone, regardless of hair type. Her knowledge of hair health is needed to navigate the endless rows of hair products! Go to her. You won't be disappointed.
