- Madison, Wisconsin, United States
Jan 28, 2009 - I am not one to write a review unless I am truly unable to contain my excitement or repulsion in a service/product. I am 33 years old and have have gone to great lengths in my life to learn to control and tame my "3b" locks; including shaving off my waist-long hair telly savalas bald and "starting over". If you are in Madison with curly hair and not going to Julie at Hybrid salon, you are not doing all you can for your hair! I thought I knew a lot about curls, and I get compliments on my hair all the time. But the color was off, my last cut was past out-grown, and I haven't trusted anyone to cut my hair in the last year and a half since my old stylist moved. I went to Julie after reading the reviews here. Not only is she a joy to be around personally, but her wealth of knowledge about products, cutting, styling, and even drying curls far exceeds any stylist I have ever been to. I quite literally had the best cleansing, cutting and styling of my hair that I have ever experienced. She even dried my hair and for the first time I didn't rush mortified out of the salon to whip my hair up into a ponytail. It was night-on-the-town gorgeous! My hair is so soft, and my ringlets move. My hair is sassy again! Even the guys at work noticed right away.
Sorry to ramble, but I know the struggle we curly girls go through. This salon has talented, well educated stylists matched with a positive energy and willingness to share their knowledge....they could easily be a successful snooty salon that overcharges and pushes products. Instead, these folks have matched the hip, friendly Madison vibe and blessed us with their New York/International top-level skils. These folks truly have the best interest of you and your curls at heart! I am a devoted Hybrid girl, thanks Julie!
