Upbeat and Modern; Great cuts
I called and was able to schedule an appointment on the same day. Salon is upbeat and modern, with sometimes annoying music playing in the background. Stylists are friendly and don't seem stuck-up, as others have noted. Both men and women cut at the salon; I had my hair cut by a stylist named Dustin; he was very skilled and transformed my mangy mop into a great modern, layered cut. I was given a very thorough shampoo and a bit of a head massage, and Dustin listened carefully to my needs, analyzed the photo I brought in, and also took a bit of leeway to decide how the cut would best suit my face. I was very pleased with the result. What's nice is that you can choose how much you're willing to spend on a cut; you can get a haircut for the cheapest amount with a Level 1 stylist, or pay a bit more for a Level 2 stylist, or pay the most for a Level 3 stylist with the most experience. I went with level 2 and was not disappointed. There is the usual hair products sales pitch at the end (and boy, are those products expensive) but it wasn't over the top. The discount here on city search (20% off if you mention citysearch) was very handy, and they gave me 2 more referral cards for 20% discounts for friends. I recommend giving this salon a try.
