During my visit I had two services done; a blow out & full face make up. The 3 star rating is for the blow out.
The stylist was very sweet & easy to talk to. I explained to her at the beginning what I wanted which was volume & big curls aka the “Houston style”. I also mentioned that I needed my hair to last for my engagement photo session at 5pm (my appt was at 1pm).
I wish my stylist could have been a little more thorough during the hair washing. She didn’t wash the top of hair very well. She focused more on the bottom of my hair & I think that affected the outcome of my hair. My hair had not been washed for 3 days prior so it was slightly greasy.
During the blow drying portion of my visit, I watched the stylist next to me finish up a beautifully done blow out. I asked my stylist what the blow out style the lady next to us was considered (you know, Houston, Miami, Chicago, etc.). My stylist stated it was a mix between Miami & Houston. I liked it so I told her that is what I wanted. She agreed to do that so that even if some of the curls “fell”, my hair would still have curls left for my engagement photo shoot.
When my stylist finished, I looked in the mirror & saw some pieces of hair that were not touched (curled) so I asked her to curl them which she did. When she finished again, I took another look & saw that my hair was flat. I asked her if she add volume & she enthusiastically responded with a yes. She teased parts of my hair & added volume using volume powder (which should had been done in the first place but was not).
When she finished, my hair looked nice. Not as voluminous as I wanted but the curls looked nice. I went on to my make up appt. a few chairs over. Needless to say, my hair did not make it to the end of my 45 min make up appt. The amount of money was not worth the end result of my hair. It really deserves two stars because it fell before I left the salon. I understand humidity played a part BUT there were other clients leaving with beautifully curled, voluminous hair. The stylists managed to make hair of various lengths look great! Mine looked “nice”. Maybe they could give my stylist a suggestion or two? She really was a sweet girl & I appreciated how she was responded enthusiastically each time I asked for my hair to be curled or volumized. I really did!
I added one star because I appreciated the make up artist & the front desk person (two very sweet ladies) trying to fix my hair with a comb & hairspray. They could see that the curls were falling before my photo shoot. Mind you, I even wore my seatbelt incorrectly bc I wanted to protect my hair but it wasn’t enough from falling flat.
