5 Stars for Robert!!!
I recently had the distinct pleasure of having my hair done by someone who doesn't do "Pittsburgh Hair." You see, I moved here from Washington D.C. and was shopping in Shadyside when I met an English woman who recommended the salon and more importantly, Robbert. Getting an appointment with him was more than difficult though. When I called for my appointment, the receptionist repeatedly told me he was booked and that she could put me with another stylist who she said is a color professional. I explained to her that I wanted a cut- Not a dye job. After some dispute, she found he had an opening the next day. When I arrived at the salon, I was greeted by Skylar, who made me feel very welcomed. She hung up my coat and got me a robe. While waiting for Robert, the owner of the salon welcomed me as well. Then the manager introduced himself. It was like a full-on welcoming committee. When Robert came out to meet me, he was all smiles and I instantly felt a connection. We walked back to his chair and he began to talk to me as if I were an old friend. I was immediately at ease and knew I could trust him. We talked about my concerns, needs, facial shape and what I was looking for. We went back to get me shampooed and- WOW! This guy knows how to give a great shampoo!!! We went back to his chair and began the cut. I was amazed at his movement and grace. This guy wielded his scissors like a painter with a brush. When he styled the cut he explained it every step of the way. It was simple and he even told me some tricks of the trade. The next day, I was able to recreate my style almost exactly like he did. Robert is a ray of sunshine in this gloomy city. I HIGHLY recommend this guy and ladies, he is really cute too!
