   Abby
06/18/2015
Daniel was very knowledgeable and through. I felt slightly disconnected because there was not much interaction of explanation when I asked questions. To be fair, my hair is in a very poor state and he did what was right to condition and not over correct. I just wish there was more clarity on what is best, why and a little casual conversation would have been nice as it was my first time in the salon. Would go back to him again and hope we have more of a rapport.

Even though I live & work in Chicago, Koral's personal attention to the individual & her sweet personality is worth the long drive to be able to have her cut my hair.

Jessie knows exactly how I like my hair, exactly what products I do and do not like used, and knows exactly when to push new products that I am hesitant about. This time she used the Be Curly Style Prep while drying my hair, and my normally straight hair dried in perfect waves. And they still look good after a night's sleep.

I actually got the Olaplex treatment (last minute change that Jessie was great at accommodating), but it was wonderful. While my hair processed in the shampoo bowl, Jessie propped my neck and head up with extra towels to make me more comfortable. Regardless of the added care, my hair looks amaze!
