I've been a client of A.F. Bennett for about ten years now. I've gotten a variety of services done here by several different professionals. Overall, the place is beautiful and fun to be at, you are treated well with complimentary drinks and nice customer service reps, a mini massage while you get your hairdone, and you'll definitely want to go back. It's addicting for a while. But the prices are getting a little ridiculous, the master stylist that usually does my hair doesn't always listen to the length that I want, I haven't found one person in there that has enough product knowledge to sell me anything (I was sold shampoo and conditioner for straight hair yet I have dry curly hair - hellooo???), and there is a different girl that washes my hair EVERY time I go (which drives me nuts becuase some suck and some are great). Sometimes the stylists make me feel like they are vultures fishing for a tip and all of a sudden I stopped getting confirmation phone calls the day before my appointment (in which case I've forgetten to go twice and I've had to wait a week or more for a reschedule). If you need a great haircut or service it's worth trying a few times until you gt the right person for you. And if you can afford it, even better for you. But it's getting to be slightly ovrerrated. Sorry A.F Bennett, I love you guys but I might start going to the city for a better haircut and better customer service at about that price.
I have never gotten any serives by these people and I never will becuase I've heard too many horror stories, yet there have been times where I see brides or prom girls walking out looking nice. So I don't know what to tell you there. But I personally like to shop there for the products. They usually do a "buy 1 get one 1/2 off" sale but I guess because of the economy the bumped it up to "buy 2 get one 1/2" sale. And yet I went in and the manager (a very tanned male with bad hair???) was telling a customer she could purchase her items for the better sale offer. So these people are incosistent with their sales all of a sudden and also incosistent with the proces of there goods. One wekk a bottle of hairspary will cost you 14 bucks and the next week the bottle with cost you 17. I don't get it. The store is also VERY tight, and I'm a smaller woman complaining here, their makeup is old, and the employees don't mak me feel comfortable when selling me a product - I don't believe they have the complete product knowledge or experience they need to sell me anything. Sometimes the girls will look at me like they have no idea what I'm talking about. Maybe it's the age barrier? Long story short - if you need something quick go for it. Otherwise go to luxuryparlor.com. It's a lot cheaper and you don't have to waste gas or deal with anyone.
