Where do I began. I came to Madison Avenue Salon after I read up on many reviews in Hair Styling magazines that placed the salon in the top 100. I had an amazing hair dresser in Atlanta, GA, where I am originally from (city of hair) but I moved to Seattle as a business decision and was really down about having to find a new hair stylist. I thought I would never find someone to live up to my expectations, because my hair is so unmanageable. If I do not consistently go to a professional, I start to see breakage, split ends, very dry and brittle hair, you name it. So finding someone who specialized in healthy hair treatment was very important for me.
I called the salon to schedule an appointment, and spoke to a very well mannered stylist. When I arrived for my appointment, I was immediately greeted and taken to the chair to decide what I wanted done with my hair. Kay, the head stylist, was very knowledgeable in my hair type and provided many options and benefits that she can do with my hair. She is so versatile with so many hair types, and amazes me in the work she does with hair color, extensions, cuts and technique. I was torn in between a relaxer (what I usually get) and a Brazilian Blowout, which I had just learned about on arrival to her salon. She had great prices and went into clear depth on how my hair will remain healthier for a longer time. I was convinced the Brazilian Blowout was for me, and my stylist was unbelievable right! It took about two hours for the applying process, because my hair had to be washed, dried, washed again, then dried again. But even for that time period I thought it went fairly fast. At my old salon, I could spend on average 3 to 4 hours and would plan whole day trips just to get my hair done. At Madison Avenue Salon, it was in and out.
The ladies at the salon are about getting things done and they expect the best results as much as the customer does. My Brazilian Blowout CUT the process of washing, drying, and straightening my hair IN HALF It retains shine, moisture and it remains to look like I am always at the salon. It has been almost 2 months and my hair looks like the first day, that I had the Brazilian Blowout done. With the proper care, and using the right products I was able to finally maintain my hair on my own.
Ive been back to the salon twice for a dye and trim and received the same amazing service. I tell all my new colleagues about this versatile salon and I would recommend the salon for women and men with all types of hair. As well as the Brazilian Blowout, with one of the best prices and outcomes in the Seattle Area.
