I used to really love Great Clips for my hair. We started taking the kids there when Cartoon Cuts left Harford Mall. Well, let's just say things are not as good as they used to be. Too many of the staff would rather be elsewhere and they don't hide it. Some have attitudes, many chat too much between themselves or on the phone. Yes on their cell phones while cutting your hair. One girl was in such a rush to leave that she cut our son good behind his ear. I mean she cut him, not a nic. It was bleeding pretty good too. She was such an idiot about it too. She said his hair cut is free because I just cut him. He was still calm at that point til she made a big deal and got all loud about the blood. Then he freaked. She wasn't freaking at the site of blood she was just commenting really loud about it. I wanted to scream at her are you stupid. You don't do that to a young child you're supposed to keep him calm. Anyway she culdn't finish the cut after that, no way would he let her and I couldn't blame him. Took a long while before he would go in any stylists chair anywhere again. The cuts of gone down hill for both the kids and me and unfortunately the first and only time I talked hubby into trying them out they really butchered his hair. Yes we still go there because they are cheap compared to others in the area but we are really picky about the stylists now and will turn around and walk out if not happy with the vibes we get. The cuts are not great quality but i guess its true you get what you pay for. Anyway they'll do if you're not worried about a perfect "do".
Mane connection is by far my favorite salon! Great service with skilled, caring stylists. The staff is honest, up- front and knowledgeable. I always feel comfortable trying something new here! An added bonus: The staff seems very positive and supportive of each other. It’s very comforting as a customer when another hairstylists walks and says “that’s looking great!” Bonus 2: The prices are very competitive. Jessica has been my stylist and I absolutely love her! Have you ever been to a hairdresser looking for a radical change, but they were too timid and you leave with exactly the same ‘do? I understand it places a great burden on the stylist, but it’s so disappointing! I came in with nearly waist length hair, having never colored it, and wanting shoulder length hair with bright red peekaboo’s. Jess made sure she completely understood what I wanted, and then committed! I think I was in there for nearly three hours my first visit as she carefully and thoroughly bleached and dyed my very dark hair. The result? A spunky shorter cut with choppy layers and carefully placed bright red peekaboo’s that could be styled to be bold and obvious or nearly invisible. The only downside is they are not open on Mondays which has been the only available day for me for a while. I cheated and went to another salon and I’m regretting it terribly! I’m really looking forward to my next visit!
I just returned from GREAT CLIPS in Bel Air where I received a very sharp looking hair cut am more then pleased with my cut and the service. My stylists was most attentive to what I asked her to do and how I wanted my cut. Was my first visit ever and Penny the stylist did all I asked for and was most polite .To quote Arnold "i will be back" . I have paid far more and was not as pleased as I am with Great Clips! OH and my wife liked my cut as well ! A. Z.
