I would like to share some real experts that are located in shrewsbury in the Warren Tricomi Salon as well as in NYC. To begin, Clarke is a color master. I found other reviews about him which made me want to ask for him. I then asked others and again Clarke was recommended as the "go to" colorist via word of mouth as well. His assistant Vanessa is a pleasure and also very talented as she is learning from him. This salon has a very intensive training program and you can understand the level of experrtise via a rating system that is available based upon skills and years of experience. Clarke is by far the best of the best. The women that he works on ALL have GREAT color!! He has a real eye for blending your skin tone and eyes with the perfect color to make you look stunning. Before I found Clarke I had a color that made me look tired and washed out. The best part is you can go for a free consult and hear what he has to say. I am sure you will be sold after you hear his thoughts but it is a low risk way to understand what he would do and although he is top rated and experienced and thus on the higher pricing end, he is worth every penny! Not to mention he is a real pleasure to talk to as well.

I was told when I originally went in my highlights would cost $250 by the front desk associate, plus as a local business they extended 20% off as a potential new corporate account. After the color, I found out from the assistant that blow-dry was not included. That she could arrange one for me at 80 dollars extra or I could do it on my own. Then she mentioned the colorists were not great at blow drying, well why would I do it then? I opted to air dry / quickly dry my hair in the salon as I wanted to work out later. The entire session I had to hold my handbag as there were no tables in the salon. Very luxurious. I also managed to get serum on my bag that the associate gave me from the leaking bottle, lucky it left a small stain. At the time, the front office manager said they would take care of it. Then I go to pay my bill and it was $375, way above what the front desk associate quoted on Wednesday at $250. I spoke a few times to the Front Desk Manager and she put me in touch directly with the owner. Edward was rude; with zero intention to extend a refund of the difference quoted. He was fully obnoxious on the phone. They also told me they would no longer take care of the stain on my bag. I had three friends lined up to go in, I made sure to let them know how I was treated. Definitely go to John Frieda or Fekkai, this place is over priced and the owner Edward is an ungracious host.
