I have very ""difficult"" hair, so I have been to many, many salons over the years, desperately trying to find someone who could both give me a great cut/color, as well as provide me with the tips and styling aids to help me when I do my hair myself. Joey Rose, the owner of Rinse, does all of that and more. When I first went to Joey, my hair was incredibly damaged, and the color was awful. My hair has literally been transformed since Joey has been my stylist, and he always recommends great products that seem to work wonders. While I am partial to Joey since I have been going to him before Rinse opened, I have seen what a great job the other stylists do on their clients as well.\r
The salon itself has a very soothing, relaxing atmosphere, and is not at all stuffy or pretentious like many of the other salons I have been to in the city. One thing that always bothered me about hair salons was feeling pressured to buy products; Joey never, ever tries to convince me to buy something just for the sake of buying it, and if anything, he tries to save me money wherever he can. It is very refreshing not to feel pressured to buy this shampoo or that conditioner, but only to have suggestions as to what products will make my hair easier to manage and healthier.\r
I recommend this salon to my friends and co-workers frequently...I (and my hair!) couldn't be happier with Joey Rose and Rinse!!
Pros: Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service, no sales pressure
