I saw all of the positive reviews for this place and was SO excited to come in and get a cut. Unfortunately, I had a pretty bad experience. Although the staff was extremely nice and it was a lovely atmosphere, I received a pretty bad haircut from Michael.I asked for a cut that was about shoulder length with some layers as well. He immediately cut my hair to just barely shoulder length, and preceded to give me very dramatic layers. I don't think he took enough time to really figure out what I was looking for. On top of that, over 1/2 of the volume of my hair was cut to the shortest layer's length. I can understand a hairdresser misunderstanding how short someone wants a cut, but I don't think there's an excuse for it, especially since I warned him about the thickness of my hair and about my concerns that the shorter layers would be too short. Additionally, I think that most smart hairdressers err on the side of caution when it comes to taking off length in case a client realizes after cuts are made that they were mistaken about the length that they wanted. If Michael had done that, it would have saved a lot of grief.I ended up with very thin bottom layers and extremely thick top layers. Very mullet-like. And the layers were extremely uneven! This is the first time in my life I've gotten a haircut so bad that I had to go to a different hairdresser to get it fixed. She was shocked at how uneven the layering was.I'm still puzzled at my experience since there is not even 1 review of less than 5 stars here. But this was seriously the worst haircut experience I've had in the last 10 years. All of that being said, everyone was so nice that it was really difficult to admit to myself that I hated the cut because I liked all of the people so much. I'm sure they would have done everything they could to fix my cut if I had come back in, but I just didn't want to risk them making it worse.

Eddie. He has been cutting my hair for a couple of years. He has always been fabulous on so many levels! This particular time.....he gave me the best hair cut I have ever had! I decided to go short...........scary for me!......he styled it in just such a fashion....He said it would look good growing out as well! He was right. I am a year into this style and it still looks good!!!!!!!!! I know this is not average for a haircut...but he was right! I wanted to take the time and energy to tell you all how wonderful I think Eddie is!!!!!!!! Thank you, Eddie, for being you........and loving what you do! I will be on your schedule before long!!! PS He is the only one I have ever had cut my childrens' hair that actually understood what I meant when I said not to cut too much, they like it long.! No one ever really believes me and they give "classic little boy cuts" regardless.
Bravo to a salon that truly understands people and how to do business.I called up Shear Excitement this morning in a panic because I'd just gotten an awful haircut (far too short with awful layers), and I was hoping they'd be able to maybe help me with extensions. The woman on the phone was SO nice. Even though they couldn't do extensions on such short notice, she told me to just come in and they would see if they could help me fix it.Kristin met with me, listened to my concerns about my cut, and completely transformed it. I didn't think it was fixable, and she really made me look like a million bucks.They cut my hair ON THE HOUSE and just asked that I come back and see them. Can't say enough great things.
I LOVE Michael!!! He has NEVER let me down and I have been a loyal customer to him since 2005. Michael is a true artist and a very talented one at that. I am baffled and almost in shock at the review written by dcfoodie. This person cannot be talking about the same Michael Motley that I have patronized for so long. I almost wonder if the whole review is not a fake. I count down the days between my appointment and always leave more than satisfied. My children also love Mr. Michael. I almost hate to brag on him this much because he is already so busy. I had to speak up after seeing that disturbing review. I hope the person behind that last review found a person to please them but I somehow doubt it.
I have been a client of Ego Hour for over 17 years. I "shopped" around when I moved to Winston Salem for the best hair salon.It is without hesitation that I recommend Ego Hour to anyone as the very best salon in our area. My stylist, Brenda Garrison, works wonders with my color and cut. I travel regularly. When I am away and go to a salon for a shampoo/blow dry I can honestly say the stylist always comments on how wonderful my color/highlights are - (from New Orleans to New York)!The staff at Ego Hour are fantastic - friendly and always helpful when I have to switch an appoitment time at the last minute.
Absolutely love this place!! I visited the salon for the second time and this time took my daughter. She is natural with hair almost to her waist. The stylist was very professional, kind, and knowledgeable about the services she was providing. My daughter had the STS treatment applied and I am beyond pleased with the out come!! The first visit I had a sew in installed and went back for a shampoo and style. Prices were great and so was our stylist. I would definitely recommend this salon!
Came From West Virginia to get my hair done by Tamera!Wow! Tamera is fantastic,! Got my hair done by her in the summer and had to return for a Christmas cut and color! I got lost and was a bit late, but she was sweet and professional and finished my hair without missing a beat! NO ONE does my hair like she does! Knowledgeable, swift, and receptive to my taste! When I need Tamera again, I'll go back down to Winstton-Salem (and hope that I don't get lost this time!)
I went to ooh lala to get my hair done, a few weeks ago. I must say I was very pleased with it all. The place was clean and everyone looked and act very professional! They where all friendly as well. And my hair!! Well lets just say I loved it so much I'm there almost every week!!! And going to get a sew-in on the next visit. They also have really good prices. Now I can say that I have a personal stylist. Thanks ooh lala salon! ! :)
After much thought in switching Salons and Fear that set in, I could not be more pleased and happy with the decision to make a switch. Making a switch after 9 years is a hard one. Thank You Leslie for the amazing Job you did with the Cut I had requested. It is Perfect and have received so many compliments on it. Looking forward to the continued great service, cuts / colors by Leslie Horne at Ego Hour Hair.
