I recommended this place to my friends and they all go there now and love it! went to guys and gals after a bad haircut- I needed it fixed and didn't have time to go anywhere else! I was nervous because of the small, "basic" atmosphere and low price to get my hair cut ($7 student discount). however my stylist did an AMAZING job and gave me exactly what I wanted. my "Bettie Paige" bangs and length/layers were perfect to the photo I showed her. she was also a wonderful conversationalist and I felt as if I've been seeing her for years instead of just meeting her. definitely going back again, definitely recommend this place. I wish it was a little more modern, but hey, they do a great job and for a fantastic price. so tip well!

The hairdresser continually tried to talk me into something I didn't want. Are you sure you don't want bangs? You should part your hair on this side. She diffused my hair and burnt my forehead, I had a huge red mark I had to cover up! She kept telling me about her curly hair (hers was poorly straightened), but obviously didn't know how to style textured hair. After hair-spraying my hair, she diffused it and then kept touching it until it was a giant frizzy mess. The first thing I did upon leaving was go wet it down.Without asking she gave me 'reverse layers', which apparently is shorter hair in the back and longer in the front. That is the complete opposite of how I like my hair. I merely asked for a trim, not a new style.I would not recommend this salon for anyone with long hair, however the patrons with short hair before me left very happy.
I called this morning with a huge disaster and I spoke with Shaina who was very polite about my mishap. She got me in with no questions asked today. She was very professional and accommodating to my situation. I then was switched over to Amanda who turned my mishap into something amazing. These ladies are amazing and I will be returning. I am grateful for the time and effort they took to help me.
