- PJ Lussier
Dec 22, 2011 - I was dreading finding a new hairdresser after moving back to Western MA. I went to PJ as a result of the reviews on this site, and he did not disappoint. I am somewhere between 2c and 3a with medium long, thick, coarse hair. I used to pay a lot of money for Ouidad cuts, but I don't think I was ever as happy with those as I am with PJ's cut. For starters, he knows how to get lift at your crown and eliminates the dreadful floppy dog-ears effect on the sides. And the ease of home styling is far superior to a Ouidad cut. My mom says this is one of the best cuts I've ever had and she's watched me try many, many different methods of cutting and styling. My curls look great! PJ has good creative vision. He takes the extra time to adjust the cut to how your hair is falling. He is meticulous, yet laid back, which makes the whole experience pleasant. His blow drys are faaaaabulous and he gives great pointers on how to style at home. He's also a great colorist (with the help of his assistant Tina), and I find myself going back as much for the color as I do for the cut. Pros: Great shape! Creative vision. Meticulous. Personalized treatment. Great colorist. Great finishing style. Super easy to style myself with the help of the super soaker method that you can find on this website. Cons: Had to trade bigger curls (that I used to have to finger curl myself) for smaller curls. But it makes up for it in ease of styling, and better overall shape and definition.
