NIGHTHAIR ON PIEDMONT!
When a woman decides to do something with her hair, it is usually with a very clear vision in mind. The color, the cut, the highlights.. Pictures are cut out sometimes to ensure complete understanding by her hairdresser. When the initial conversation is over and you have stated your desires and the hairdresser has nodded in agreement 90% of the time.. you think.. "Ok, I think we got this down, so just make me pretty." And then you relax in their comfy chairs and enjoy a great head massage.. Color is slapped on.. You have so many foils and plastic in your head, you are ready for reception from outer space... Almost 45 min later.. and after careful peaking under the foils by the experienced stylist, you are ready to see yourself in the color you wanted..

Well, in my case NOT EXACTLY... There was obviously a lot of nodding and very little hearing while I was explaining my desires over and over.
Not only that, but my color turned EXACTLY the opposite of what I had asked for!
How do you do that? How do you add "copper" and "auburn" streaks when the request was for "sand" and "wheat" color.. and NO STREAKS, but fine highlights.. how do you hear gold blonde, when the request was specifically "NO GOLD, NO RED, NO WARM!!!"
The hairdresser, all flustered, called the owner to discuss options. They offered me to go back and fix it.. or to fix it right away! Who in their right mind would want to subject their hair to so much trauma within an hour - more peroxide, more hairdryers, more product! That alone should tell you that they have NO clue on what good hair-care is
Oh, on top of all, they still charged me.. "we need to charge you for product" the owner said..
It's not over.
I was supposed to get this really "edgy" haircut... All i got was a blunt cut... which took 3 minutes. And she said "we are ready.."
and to top it off - she burned the front of my hair with with the flatiron or the hairdryer or something.. Even now, almost 10 hours later my bangs smell like burnt rubber!
So PLEASE don't ever go there, recommend to anyone, or experiment with your hair in that place.. Unless of course you want to, and you want to get red streaks from the late 80's .. then yes, that place is for you.. otherwise, I'd stay far and away..
As for me, I am going back to my trusted girls at Salon 11 Studios in Dunwoody, who know exactly how to listen to their customers.. I guess that's what I deserve for "cheating" on my colorist! And now I'm caught "red-headed!"
No offense redheads - I love that color on you - it's not for me!!!
Wishing everyone a Happy Hair Day!
