    My hair is black... I wanted it blonde-style like Beyonce has sometimes, or how Lucy Liu had her blonde streaks. THAT is what I requested from the lady who attempted to work on my hair. She didnt understand what I wanted so I look through one of their hair magazines and point at a lady in the magazine with dark blonde hair (I wanted something totally different)... like how celebrities with black hair go totally different go dark blonde, its cute! Anyway, when I showed her the picture, she looks at me like I am crazy and tells me I should go with warm or cool colors. I tell her no I want this color in the magazine, she puts the book down and tells me that my hair is too nice to have a color like that and goes on about how I should color it, I cut her off and say, alot of brunettes go for this style I want that color, she looks at me like Im crazy AGAIN, and tells me that I should go for more of a warmer look, I then get frustrated because she doesnt understand what I want, I dont care if she thinks that it wont match me, its what I WANT! So I walk out. I call the manager later and the manager says we had a language barrier (I dont think so) I speak fluent english, I specifically stated what i want yet she gives me a crazy look like I cant have that color! The manager says she is a good hairstylist. Thats it, there was nothing more the manager would do, she wouldnt apologize to a CUSTOMER and say sorry it happened, she didnt even mention she would talk to her about giving me a crazy look!

    Ladies, if you want a new look that's in style, regardless how BLACK your hair is, do NOT go this salon!

    I went with my 2 young sons to to have my 3 year old get his haircut. We waited for 15 minutes, and they called out my sons name. Before I go on further, EVERY hair salon that Ive went to allowed me and my 7 year old son to go along with my 3 year old. And EVERY hair salon Ive went to allowed my 3 year old son to sit in my lap while he would get his haircut.

    On to the story.. as soon as they call my sons name, my 7 year old and 3 year old all walk to the chair and the MANAGER himself said "We cant be having kids run about here".. I told him "oh my son wont run", then he said "Well, we cant just have kids standing around.", so I say "Umm okay" and I tell my 7 year old to sit down. Then I go continue heading to the chair and the manager goes "Maam, we need you to sit down too", I said "Oh, well my son is only 3 and normally he wants to sit in my lap because he is more comfortable that way.", the manager says "We just need him in the chair by himself.", then I said "No, I know how my son is, he really would like to be in my lap", the manager says "He can do it by himself maam, we need him to sit by himself". I get frustrated because every response given to me from him was sooo RUDE, it just sounded very cold! So I said, "You know what, I will just go to another salon because other places let him sit in my lap, and other places let my other son stand and watch his brother get a haircut". When I left, the manger SARCASTICALLY said "Thanks for coming".
