My sister recommended Cynthia to me some years ago. She told me..."Cynthia's great Rick. She'll make you look like a star," which is just what I needed to hear. I was living and working in Las Vegas at the time and my look was important to my business, so I gave Cynthia a try. Cynthia listened (actually listened) to my concerns about how I felt I needed my hair to look and was able to give me a style that worked in the boardroom in the daytime and on stage at night - that perfect balance that, believe it or not, was a real challenge to find in Las Vegas. At that time, in the early nineties, I had to be in Georgia a lot, so it was only natural that I would use Cynthia but after several seasons of going to her (between salons in ' Vegas) I realized no one I had used since the seventies had done as good a job as Cynthia was doing now. I began arranging my trips to Atlanta based on her schedule as much as mine...yes I am vain about my looks, obviously. Is she expensive? Compared to what? The Hair Force chain, a $5 nightmare? The ditz down at Neiman-Marcus? Please! She might be a little pricey, but she beats all the competition in her neighborhood. Is she inconvenient? Well, for me she is - very. I now live in back in the south, but not Georgia, and I still jump through hoops to get in her chair...because I know when I get out of that chair my hair will look exactly how I want it to look. I am rarely (never) on stage anymore but I still have to go to the board meetings. When Cynthia is done with my hair I am ready to take on the world...because I know I have the best haircut in the world. That's how I feel and Cynthia neither asked for, nor paid for this review. I just wanted to let everyone know how happy I am to have her as part of my staff.
I have been going to Adel & Gary's for over 30 years - with Gary as my hairstylist & Jackie as my colorist/chemical pro! Both--are the BEST in the business. Gary- knows how to DESIGN your hair to match your face. He is a sculpture that knows what style, hair length, color compliments your face. I have sent many friends and family to him to get a "make over". They have ALWAYS been completely AMAZED at the results. Jackie- is the chemical genius! My hair is always healthy and brilliant when I leave! (except the time that I messed up my hair on my OWN by trying to do my own hair at home--Ran to Jackie to help "undo" what I had done. She warned me that I should wait. After I begged her to fix it.. She added just a little correction coloring here and there-- It turned out GREAT! (only a little breakage because she was SO careful to choose the healthiest hair) I even get tons of compliments on my latest experiment -- I might get her to do it again-- However, next time, I would let HER do it from the beginning-- I almost caused all my hair to fall out doing it on my own! Eeekkk I would drive an HOUR to go to Adel & Gary's to get my cut and highlights -- But, luckily they are still close by. P.S. I hear "Tony" is also a good hair stylist-- haven't used him personally though.
I tried 6 times to get financial assistance to start my business. 2 places told me I was missing information. Others said they did not see any profitabililty with my venture and would not take the risk with me and said I had too much competition and that they did not believe they would see a return on their investment, the other company said I did not have enough start up capital or collateral. I googled places to help with start up for small business owners and put my stuff out there to several companies, KKPR emailed me back within 24 hours and arranged to meet with me. 3 associates came out to Hattiesburg and met with me at my home! They said my business plan was missing a few items but they actually helped me with what I was missing. They advised me on a little more homework I needed to do on my end, I did it. They came back 2 weeks later and not even 3 months later I had the money I needed to start my tax and accounting service company. Working with them I had more than enough because they finance you if you only have 1% of the money you need! Being a new father of a little princess I needed all the money I could get my hands on. They helped me formulate a clear exit strategy and gave me tips on keeping an edge on the competition. I'm glad I found KKPR. Thanks fellas. Next time yall in tha sip come by and watch a game with me
