I had a poorly done short hair cut at a salon in Towson back in November and had tried to let it grow out, but it was getting into that unmanageable middle stage so I made an appointment through Xtreme Hair's website after looking through their stylists and choosing two who specialized in short hair. I received a prompt email back confirming my appointment, with an offer to add the appointment to my gmail calendar. I did that and so I was reminded of the appointment that morning as well. This made it easy for me to make it to the salon with plenty of time to look at the cut books.
The salon is tucked away in one of the older shopping centers in Crofton, but you wouldn't know it when you step in to the warm, welcoming atmosphere of Xtreme Hair. There are two electric fireplaces to warm yourself (one in the front, one in the hair-washing room), a place to hang up your jacket, and comfy bench to sit while you wait.
My hair was beautifully sculpted by Debbie. She took a minute to introduce herself and talk about what I wanted for my hair. She looked at two different pictures I had chosen out of the book and went with the one I liked best. She then took my request to have it "just a little longer in the back" and made sure to ask where I wanted the cut to end. I had brought my own wax and she used it when styling my hair. She did and AMAZING job!!! I was so pleased with the cut and even more pleased with the styling! I told her that it was the first time I had ever left a salon happy with the style and not racing back home to shower and style it myself.
I would highly recommend Debbie or really any of the stylists. I was watching two other stylists work and Debbie had an apprentice watching her while she was cutting my hair. It seems to me that they take hair very seriously in that place.
