I came into this salon thinking that it would be pretty good based on the other 5 star review. I came in on a Monday and I was told that the barber wasn't there but I could wait five minutes while she called him in. He came in about ten minutes later. So, I sat down and told him that I wanted my hair cut short on the front, sides, and back, and pointed to where I wanted my bangs cut to. He proceeds to get out his clippers with a one inch guard on it and starts buzzing away on the back, sides, and front. He never used the scissors once. I should've known that this was a bad sign, but I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. After all the buzz-clipping he takes a bottle of hairspray out and sprays it on the sides of my face, as if to hold the very short hairs in place. He didn't do any kind of styling, just sprayed it on my face and even got a little in my eye. After he was finished I looked at my "haircut" and noticed that he hadn't cut the top to blend in with the sides. It was so uneven and ridiculous that I sat back down and asked that he fix it. He tried to but it didn't really help. I was in a state of shock that this guy was "working" at this place. He even told me that since they were not normally open on Mondays the price was 25$. I refused to pay it saying that a bad haircut is a bad haircut regardless which day of the week it falls on. Needless to say I didn't pay full price. I went directly to another place and got it fixed. The girl who cut my hair noticed how uneven it was and said that I should have asked to see his license. I should have but was so shocked at that time that I didn't. I just wanted to warn people - DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE.
Gavin, a barber at the shop makes the shop live up to its name "A Touch of Elegance" His hair cutting skills are great especially the hair lining that he creates. I cannot stop looking in the mirror or receiving compliments on my haircut from both males and females, young and old. This is a very unique and family oriented and fun place to get a haircut. Best of all the prices are very affordable and does not change after a certain time on certain days like most barber shops around the city.
