Not worth the money. Go somewhere else.

Well, here I am with a new haircut after all those fantastic ratings and recommendations I got from internet and friends to go to Sassoon Salon. Unfortunately, my experience was rather disappointing. After spending almost $160 dollars on my haircut ( which didn't even include blow dry) I ended up at home cutting my own bang the way I wanted it. I would recommend this place to those who are looking for basic haircuts but not the creative new look. I wanted something fresh and modern but left the salon with the perfectly chopped hair shorter than I wanted. When you ask for something and pay the full price with a good tip you have the right to get what you pay for.

I went in for 1' trim and walked out with a butcher cut..shag like Carol Brady. The hacker did not listen to what I wanted and just chopped away.

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.
