Jo Bruno Hair - New Haven, Connecticut, United States

May 13, 2011 - I visited Jo Bruno Hair for the first time two days ago after reading good web reviews about the salon and after reading EVERYTHING on the very-informative Jo Bruno website. You MUST visit the website: I made my appointment online, even though I really didn't know whether I needed a straight cut or curly cut? I asked for Jane based on the photos of her work on the website. As of now, Jane IS my new stylist :) I had brought photos of styles that I like so that she would have an idea of what might appeal to me -- I knew that my hair and face shape are not like ANY of those in the photos, so I wanted Jane's input as to which, if any, would be the most suitable for my face and hair type. She helped me select the cut I now have, and I couldn't be happier! She did NOT use thinning shears on my hair -- YES! I do not have curly hair, but I DO have thick wavy hair. Every prior stylist I have ever had has reached for the thinning shears immediately. In fact, Jane told me she would have, as well, except that I had asked her to let the back of my hair dry "curly". She does not thin out hair which will be dried curly. I'm no beauty, but now my hair is :) The cut I received is amazing -- the WAVES in the back of my hair are just stunning. Let me summarize by saying that this haircut is the most even-cut style I've EVER had, it's the easiest one to maintain (SURPRISE!), it may be the best-looking style I've ever had, and the price was ridiculously low. Jane is a fountain of information on how to handle curly/wavy hair. I was apprehensive about my ability to duplicate those amazing waves I saw in the back of my hair when I left the salon, but I DID IT yesterday!!! Jane's impeccable instructions made it possible for me to duplicate the look she had created ( more half-hour blow-dries!!!) -- even though I used my own hair products. She told me the products she was using on my hair, every step of the way, but she did not indicate that I HAD to use those products to achieve the look. However, when my current products run out, I intend to try the ones Jane used in the salon. The salon itself is clean and cheery. I was greeted with warmth even though I was new. I will DEFINITELY be returning to Jo Bruno Hair, despite the fact that New Haven is not around the corner from my home in Lyme :)
