scoopscout's Latest Salon Reviews

Elixir - Berkeley, California, United States

Dec 03, 2008 - I found Alex, the owner of Elixir, almost two years ago while recovering from an overzealous stylist whose attempt at thinning left me with uneven clumps of straggly long hair and can happily share that she has what every curly girl wants, starting with curly hair herself. Alex was the first person who didn't immediately take scissors and start lopping, but had the patience to help me grow out my hair until there was enough of it for her to work with. She also respected my desire to go slow with coloring, adding highlights so subtle not even the spouse noticed. I know Alex can do more edgy and dramatic work, but I love that she respects her customer's wishes and listens.

Madusalon - San Francisco, California, United States

Apr 17, 2008 - I went to this salon because they were the only ones in San Francisco boasting Devachan-trained stylists. Left an hour and a half later with a haircut I'm still recovering from a year-and-half later. Carolina lopped huge chunks of hair off all over my head-you can't call it layering. When I objected to the damage, she acted insulted and tried to cut more. To add insult to injury they charge extra for the dry Deva cuts. So beware-just because they say they know what they are doing, they don't. (FYI, I had a cut at the original Devachan in NYC four years ago and loved it.)
