After reading all the reviews, I decided Poshe was the best place to get my haircut. When I called to make my appointment, I told the receptionist I wanted their best hair cut stylist and I was very nervous, and would be getting over 12 inches taken off. She booked me for a shampoo and cut with Lily, the salon owner, who she assured me was even better than Julie, who I read so much about.
When I arrived for my appointment, I was seated in a chair that still had someone else's hair clippings on it. I also looked around and noticed not one, but all the employees had terrible dye jobs and were generally ungroomed. The receptionist had her hair in a pony tail, and I don't think even bothered to put on make up. Not to mention the generally shabby and cheap look to the place. I looked around for anything redeeming and the only thing I found was the city search award. Against my better judgment, I stayed.
When Lilly was ready for me, I told her I wanted my length taken from 3/4 of the way down my back to between my shoulders and chin. (I was cutting off a bad dye job I had gotten at the last salon I tried here in town) She suggested an A-line cut, I said no way. I wanted all one length with some long layers, not shorter in the back than in the front. Also, I didn't want it the ends to flip out, nothing crazy. She suggested layering the front around the face and some bangs. Again I said no.
She then began to dry cut my hair, without even mentioning the shampoo I scheduled. After that, she immediately grabbed the razor. I asked her not to use the razor, and she stopped after already hacking away at one side. The length was also not what I had asked for, still below the shoulders.. She had to re cut it three times before it fell between my shoulders and chin, and it is still a bit too long. Soon, her next client showed up for an appointment with her, after I had been there only 15 minutes. I would really like to know who schedules a shampoo and drastic style change in a fifteen minute time slot. At this point I knew I was screwed because she was going to rush to finish. To make a long story short, the finished product sucks. My hair is longer in the back than in the front. I also have some serious layering in the front that is way, way to short, and will take me moths to grow out to where I can have it fixed. She gave me one of those angles that follow the jaw line backwards, and then when I told her I didn't like it she tried to cover it up by brushing another piece of hair over it so I couldn't tell. Well, now that I am home, believe me I can tell. And, it flips out on the ends big time. I have this crazy layered shelf thing that is barely long enough to hide behind my ear, and hair that flips out everywhere and is much longer in the back than on the sides. I don't even think both sides are cut the same. I am going to have to pay someone else to fix it and hope (pray) that they even can. Not that there is much they can do about the front until it grows out. I will never go back. I have been wearing a hat ever since I left. Not cool Poshe, not cool.
