The most traumatizing hair experience of my life. I could write a book, but I'll be brief: 1.) said no layers, but in actuality got layers (and a crazy look when I said no layers please), 2.) said no to roller set, was cajoled into it because I was told it would be healthier for my hair, but ended up looking like combination between Ronald McDonald and Bea Arthur, 3.) relaxer burn so bad I was almost in tears the next day and considered going to the doctor, 4.) asked for a certain style and the stylist refused to do it (Here's where I started to wonder whose hair is this anyway? The owner of the head to which it is attached or the stylist I paid over $100 to style it ?). Long story short, another stylist had to give me the style I wanted. She actually did an amazing job.
So, let's review: the most traumatizing (and one of the most expensive) hair experiences of my life happened here. I have layers in my hair that I don't want and it will take months to grow out. I'm out $118 for my troubles. My hair actually looks nice now, but I went through HELL to get it to look like this. This is a cautionary tale, and a sad one. I would have loved to give this salon my continuing business and I seriously considered it after the second stylist did such a fantastic job, BUT the pain (physical and, yes, emotional- I felt so hideous) I had to deal with are enough to keep me away.
