Another highlight: the hungover shampoo girl. Super classy.

I really wish I never went to this place. They do celebrities hair, but would only be capable of Britney Spears shaved head. Maybe..

I can't emphasize enough the emotional turmoil caused by Joe. I don't want anyone else to experience this. The only good thing about this place was the male receptionist with a awesome personality! I feel bad he works with such a sham!

Perfection-ha!

I went to Joe after all the reviews and rave about him. Big mistake! I told him I wanted to make my platinum hair natural looking. First he died my hair the darkest shade of brown and told me it was a dark blonde. Through my sobs I demanded that he give me a full highlight. 8 hours later I left with brown hair and white highlights. I was embarrassed to be seen. Truly mortifying. I highly doubt if Orlando was there he would even have a job. If I could post pictures I would show you the monstrosity that was his work. I went home and the next morning was able to fix my own hair with 40 lift and a highlight golden blonde. He is supposed to be in a class of his own-ha! only if that class is for the truly incapable. Save your money and your hair. Beware!!!!

Curly cut with Joe

I have thick, loose curls. Joe looked at my hair dry, then cut it wet, section by section. As he did each section, he would cut it straight (combing it out) and then loosen the straightness with his hands to encourage the curl so he could see it curly. I am happy with the shape, it looks fresh and sophisticated.

Perfection is Joe

After years of thinking I was getting great haircuts at a "mega- Salon" I noticed a few things.... 1. my hair seemed to be getting thinner.. 2. I had no idea what my natural color was anymore... I was "vegged" into being a generic brunette .. a colour resembeling something too close to Snookie from the jersey shore.. I went to Orlo and was given Joe... Joe told me I was not loosing my hair like I feared... it was the layers and angles of my cut... 3 haircuts later I look like I have 3x more hair.... Jennifer preformerd miracled on my over "vegged " hair.. a plan that would allow my natural colour to come through withought looking like a reject from Hooters...

My sister treated me to a full hair makeover and i have never felt so transformed. Joe gave me such a delicious haircut and Andre's color was truly inspired. The experience was truly exhilarating

Wonderful Experience

I have been a long standing client of Orlo's since they opened. I get my hair colored with Andre (the best colorist I've ever been to) and I get my hair cut by Joe (sometimes if I'm lucky Orlando himself). Always a postive experience and I always feel more beautiful when I'm done. Everyone should be so lucky!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
