This salon is very relaxed and easy-going. Gina is the stylist who cut my hair and she is very good at listening to what you want and don't want. They are reasonably priced ($70-$85 for a cut if I remember correctly). The ONLY thing I wasn't crazy about is how the person at the front desk gently suggested/pressured I buy whatever Aveda products were used on me. As a result of being so happy with my haircuts, I now have a shelf of Aveda products that I'm not really sure how/when to use. I reccomend this salon with the following caveat: be certain that you truly need the Aveda products before you take out your credit card to pay.

I hate to say this because everyone was nice there and the space couldn't be cuter but ... I have never had such a terrible haircoloring service. Even one of my guy friends who never comments on stuff like that said something, it was so bad. My other guy friend got a haircut there though by a different stylist and was very pleased, so perhaps it's better for cuts than color. Like I said, everyone was nice, so I'm sure they would have attempted to "fix" it except, but the job was so botched, I didn't trust them to do better. I eventually had to get corrective color, and even that colorist was shocked at what she saw. I wish they had been jerks because then I wouldn't feel so guilty giving them low marks, but I also wish I had read this kind of review before going.

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.
