Not the greatest salon for me, maybe because I have been to Charm Beauty Salon in Brooklyn.

Not worth the money

Ive never written a review but my service at Sanctuary deserves description. After waiting an hour for my scheduled appointment I asked the hairdresser for a trim, half-inch at most. Four inches later my relatively long hair is now barely shoulder length. Because they were running behind on appointments they had their intern blow out my hair. I'm terrible at blow drying my own hair but I could have done 5x better then this fellow. Frizz city. Hair grows back... but to pay $70+ for a haircut and have such terrible service leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I will not go back to Sanctuary.

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.
