Definitely not worth $150 for a haircut

A beautiful salon, very pleasant professional staff, but Mr. Sahag needs to spend more time training his hair stylists to to deal with all hair types. Apparently the stylists teach each other!! I'm not happy with the cut I received, and it's very hard to style. Doesnt look like it's the end product of a well publicized, top knotch salon. Sorry, but that's the truth.

Sahag placed an ad saying they were "in dire need" and seeking models for a show they were doing at the International Beauty Show. They said they needed to show off their technique(s), and service(s), etc. The Contract they offered and advertised was to provide the model "complimentary cut and color services for an additional 6 months following the show." After only a couple months Sahag Breached their Contract (only after the model had already fulfilled more than their share of the Agreement) -- Not honest, NOT professional. Legitimate businesses do not lie to lure models in and then take advantage and Violate a Contract.

Went in based on great article in Vogue and other PR. Spent $150 but got very mediocre cut which I could have gotten somewhere else for 1/2 the price. It never looked good - no matter how much time I spent on it. Salon receptionists acted too busy on the phones to care about anyone - think this is aonly a place for famous ladies to have their hair cut by John. My hair cut was seriously not very good and DEFINITELY not worth $150. Just an all round over-rated place which gets lots of PR cause John cuts Debra Messing's hair. Well, I'm not DM so I got whoever else.... and it wasn't worth it. Stay away -save your money and your hair.

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.
