I was given Linda's name as a superb person for hair color, and I went to my appointment at Blade yesterday.
I went in with an unhealthy-looking drab shade of dark brown/red in my hair, and I wanted something brighter that would lighten up my look. Every salon I've gone to in the past has told me that they can't change my look because the color is too dark - and that they'd have to spend 5 to 6 hours lifting all the color from my hair, in order to then go in with a lighter shade.
Linda at Blade looked at my hair situation and came up with a winning solution that far exceeded my expectations. She absolutely transformed my look and gave me the hair I was dreaming of! I left with a lustrous warm brown plus super-cool swaths of ginger ""ombre"" lowlights.
As an aside, I asked Linda about fixing the bad haircut that I got elsewhere, and she had amazing ideas ranging from subtle changes to a whole new style. I booked a hair cut with her for a couple weeks from now.
Hands down. Linda is the best person I've ever gone to for color. She really knows what she's doing, uses high-quality products, and is the consumate artist and professional. I can't wait to see what she does with a cut!
