cherubic50's Latest Salon Reviews

Posh Salon and Color Bar - Wheaton, Illinois, United States

Jun 21, 2011 - As a prematurely gray 3A with some tighter curls mixed in, it's been hard to find the right balance of products and even harder to find a stylist who consistently listens, works with my hair as it is, and stays with the Curly Girl method. I looked for a salon in my area and found a couple, and one day just walked into Posh to check it out and see how it felt. Annette was there and graciously agreed to sit down and talk with me about my hair, its history, what I liked about it and what I didn't, and what I wanted to do next. She was attentive and engaged, and together we made a plan for a Deva Experience for a couple of weeks later. I was excited and very nervous at the same time. I was also somewhat taken aback by the request for a $50 deposit that would be applied to my $150 cut, but I needed some shaping and a good trim so badly that I just bit the bullet. I had just spent 8 long months growing out the undesired "bangs" I got from my last haircut. I was also a little apprehensive because Annette is not a curly girl herself, but she did seem very knowledgable about the moods and vicissitudes of a curlie's curls. When the day came, Annette was just as eager as I was to begin, but she took the time to review with me what I wanted and to make some suggestions about conditioning, even giving me what's turned out to be GREAT advice: to put my gel on in the shower, while my hair is sopping wet, and to gently scrunch it afterwards! I had told her the Deva Curl products were too heavy for my hair, but let her try them again, with much better results than I've ever had before. The cut was EXACTLY what I had wanted for a long time, and I left with a big smile and a round of compliments from everyone at the salon. I waited a couple of days before writing this review to get a sense of how my hair would behave once we were on our own, and I've continued to be very pleased with its shape and condition. Curly girls in the western suburbs, save up your pennies and go see Annette at Posh : )
