- Brynn Cardwell
May 08, 2012 - I'd heard so many great reviews of Curltopia so I decided to try them. Boy was I disappointed! First of all, my appointment was at noon. I arrived a little early and checked in at the front desk. My stylist, Brynn, didn't acknowledge me until 12:28. I was planning to walk out at 12:30. While she acknowledged me at 12:28, she really didn't start on my hair until 12:44 (can you tell I was timing all this?). After I'd been at the salon for awhile, I can't blame Brynn for the delay as much as the front desk because I realized that they weren't telling stylists when their clients arrived. I was a first-timer so Brynn didn't know me, nor did I know she was my stylist. I went to get my hair colored. I only wanted to get my grays colored so I got the same color as my natural hair. Let me say that I love the color - not a gray in sight. What I don't love is the fact that 2 days later, I still have hair color on my skin. When I googled how to remove hair color, most recommendations were preventive. I don't get color often but I do know that Brynn didn't put any type of cream or vaseline along my hairline to protect my skin. As such, I have dark brown skin along my hairline. While getting my hair done I informed Brynn that I normally wear my hair in twists all week and take them out on the weekends. Initially I was going to get a fingerstyle but then we settled on twists left in when I mentioned working out the following day. I've gone to 2 other salons and never had to tell the stylists what size twists to give. Well my twists were entirely too big. You could see all the parts and it wasn't something that I could wear all week. I ended up washing my hair Sunday and retwisting. In the end I got what I wanted in that my grays are colored. But I got a little extra with hair dye on my face and having to re-do my hair the next day. I won't be back.
