I drive from Vegas for Bob!
I have known Bob for over 20 years, and I think we've become good friends during that time. But it's not due to that friendship that I write this review, it's mainly due to the few bad ones I've read so far on the site. Yes, it can take longer in his salon than in others, no, he probably won't care that you've been sitting there annoyed, listening to him go on and on about something you don't care about. But if you really trust his judgement and experience and you let the rest be part of the price you have to pay for that level of expertise, you too will become hooked like many others. Over that many years it was natural we would disagree on many issues, and once I even took a one year break from him. During that time I had my hair colored (but not cut) by others, but I was never happy. I had to return to him and accept that Bob was a package deal, and that the positives more than outweigh the negatives. My husband and I moved to Las Vegas in 2005 and since then I've been driving the 4 hours each way every 6 weeks for color and every 2nd-3rd trip for cut. I always get wows from family and friends. I once tried a Vegas stylist (came highly praised) for color and it was awful, out of a bottle. My husband got 2 haircuts in Vegas and they were old fashioned and didn't compliment his face at all. So we log in the miles and gas and put up with Bob's opposing political views for a reason: he happens to be the BEST that I found at what he does. I also enjoy the friendly, family style atmosphere, I'm asked about the kids, I know about their kids, boyfriends and diets, and this sort of feeling of belonging doesn't come easy in most other places. Bob knows how to make you part of the group right away, he introduces his clients to each other so you never feel like an outsider, and when you leave you feel you have made a personal connection with everyone, employees and clients, so you say your farewells to each person you've met. I love Bob and so do my husband, 3 kids and all my friends who have met him!
