    I've been coming here for maybe 3 years for all kinds of haircuts - they used to do an okay job, particularly for the price but based on my last experience the quality and care has just absolutely plummeted. I came in asking for a trim and not 2 minutes into the haircut the guy ended up taking a little too much off one side so he tried to fix this mistake by taking some off the other side too. After maybe 10 minutes of this comical balancing act he basically gave up and decided to use the hairdryer to "reshape" my hair to cover up just how asymmetric and unbalanced everything looked. After a bit of this hairdryer magic he told me that he was all done and there was nothing left to do. I ended up having to get another haircut the next day just to fix the disaster he left behind. The entire experience left me feeling like I could have just paid myself the $20 and gotten a better haircut if I had done it in front of the mirror.

    DONT GO TO THIS RACIST PLACE. I went with a friend and we were both guided to the hair wash section and the rude lady proceeded to wave me off and have someone who came after me be seated first. Afterwards I was told to wait on a hairdresser chair where I waited over 30 minutes for service. During this time 3 Asian individuals and 1 white man were given service before me only minutes after them arriving. After I asked why I wasn’t given service the hairdresser next to me laughed and shrugged it off. IF YOU ARE A PERSON OF COLOR STAY AWAY FROM THIS RACIST PLACE.

    Balayage review: I came here to get my balayage redone after seeing all the good reviews. My hair was breaking off during the bleaching process. They don’t really care about the condition of your hair and their goal is to just achieve the color you are asking for. My hair damage from the first time I got my balayage done is no where near as bad as it is now and I went lighter the first time. The color is Ok , uneven shadowing

    Short summary: girlfriend went in for a bleach touch up, they made mistakes, they "fixed" it by bleaching her entire hair instead, girlfriend ended up with a style she didn't want and it costed $200+ and 3+ hours more than expected. For context, I've been a customer at this salon a few times and had good experiences myself (asian male, have received hair cut, perm, and permanent color). So I recommended the place to my girlfriend (asian female, seeking a bleach touch up). She wanted to get a bleach touch up for her roots, as her hair was previously bleached (orange/brown) but new hair grew (black). She went in for an appointment which should have cost about $100 and 2 hours. As a stylist applied bleach on her roots, one of the stylists was working hastily and a few drops of bleach got on her unprotected orange hair. Then when customers started piling in, they started rushing so much that the lathering technique was clearly off. On top of that, the bleached area became too blonde to match her existing hair. They tried to brush the mistake off by trying to fix it without communicating. They brought five bowls of bleach and started bleaching her entire hair, and it was too late by the time my girlfriend processed what was going on. No explanation was given and no consent was asked for. To be absolutely clear, she did not want her entire hair bleached at all and she was not ready for such a situation. They charged full price for their mistakes, which amounted to more than $300. They were bold enough to ask for a tip on top of that. What should have been a 2 hour session became 5 hours and we paid $200 more for their mistakes. She is unhappy with the service and their level of professionalism, or lack thereof. More importantly, she's unhappy with her hair; not only because the end result is unexpected and unwanted, but also because the colors came out uneven. This was a huge waste of time and money. An ideal outcome would have been for them to admit that they made a mistake, apologize, communicate what options they could offer to amend the issue, and ask her for her opinions. The bare minimum is an apology. Unfortunately they failed to meet any of these expectations. As such, we will not be returning to this salon and I no longer recommend this place.
