Having color treated hair, I have certainly seen my fair share of stylists over the years. Some are excellent colorists but mediocre stylists; some are excellent stylists but terrible at color; some are mediocre at both, average at both, maybe even good at both. It is not often that you find TWO stylists who are truly great at both. When you get color and cut together, you spend several hours at the salon. The first thing one notices when meeting Kristen and Monique is the energy they project. I first met Kristen not long after her graduation from the Paul Mitchell school, and I immediately knew she was doing what she was meant to do. ""Doing hair"" is not just her job. It is evident in her infectious smile that she loves what she does. When I heard that Monique and Kristen were starting out on their own, there was no question whether I would follow. They are not your typical blue-haired-lady-beauty-shop girls. They are pure fun and I absolutely love hearing their stories...oh, to be young again. They do an excellent job of assessing the client's needs and wants, carefully communicating and asking questions to ensure your satisfaction. But their greatest strength, and this goes for BOTH Monique and Kristen, is their creativity. They get to know their client, and tailor the style to match the person. That is a gift only a truly spectacular stylist possesses, and 3 Phases has two. Although I have never left either of them unhappy with my end result, I am sure they would do whatever necessary to make me happy. They want you to love your hair, and you will. I think another thing that sets them apart is their constant quest to learn. Styles change, products change, methods change; these girls seek out opportunities to advance their skills and it shows. If you are reading this review, don't hesitate. Book your appointment. You won't be sorry.
