?????????? Booking experience. I've been a client for about 10 years. The guest services is outstanding; efficient, professional. I've been to salons where I'm not a client, but filling a chair, sell some shampoo and get me out the door. Gordon Salon is the exact opposite of that experience. ?????????? Haircut! I get a layered bob every time I'm there. If I can't get there in 5-6 weeks, my cut lasts 7-8 weeks. My cuts are so well done I cringe thinking I have to go somewhere else.

This was my first visit to the salon. I was impressed with the professionalism of the front desk staff (up until checking out), the general ambiance and the haircut - so far as I can tell it was quite good. However, I was told, in so many words, that because I have a lot of hair I made Melissa late for the rest of her appointments. Yes, I have thick hair. But I have been to many other stylists who could all manage it in an hour's time. When I went to check out, the cost for the haircut was $15 more than expected. After checking the website I see that I was probably being charged the $15 "extra style" charge, even though I didn't get anything "extra." I just got a haircut. I politely asked that I pay that amount expected for a master stylist haircut and the woman helping me adjusted the total. No matter how amazing this cut could turn out to be, I'm not sure I will go back to a salon where I was made to feel like a problem, and was charged a fee just for having thick hair. I think Melissa is a very talented stylist, but if she doesn't want my full head of hair as a client, at least I know now and can look elsewhere.

She is very open to suggestions because she understands that people know the nuances of their hair best, and works WITH her client to achieve the desired outcome. I came away from my experience feeling that my hair style looked like "me", and not someone else's idea of what I should look like. Melissa cares, and it shows in her work and how she treats her clients. Mel is the best!

Haley remembers my likes and dislikes every time. Perhaps most important in a stylist--she listens and cuts accordingly instead of giving me the cut other stylists "think" I want.

She listened and planned and experimented with the approach to my haircut with fantastic results. I am a fan! The color looked great too.
