I have naturally curly/wavy hair, medium texture, that really just needed some love. I've been going to another pretty high-end salon in Cary for quite some time, but I always felt kind of awkward with my relatively shy stylist, and the fact that she never works on weekends was inconvenient for me.
I'm always adventurous with scissors, and a few months back i decided to give myself some side bangs. I did a pretty good job, but the time had come for me to hand over the shears to someone who knew what he was doing.
Anyway, I called Salon Kroma thanks to the great reviews, and got an appointment for about 20 minutes later. I got there and met Gene, a laid-back guy who is very friendly and talkative. He asked me what I wanted him to do with my hair, how much I wanted cut off, etc. He spent about an hour and fifteen minutes working on my hair, so I felt like my haircut was actually important to him rather than him rushing through it.
I'm very particular with how I style my hair, and I had to go somewhere after my cut so I couldn't go home and re-style it, so I told Gene I wanted to do something different with it. To my relief, he wasn't offended or anything, and had no problem handing over the straightener and letting me (and the awesome receptionist :D) get it to where I liked it.
Well today is day two of having it cut, and I can honestly say I'M OBSESSED WITH IT! It's so light, and my curls are beautifully accentuated and bounce around happily.
I will definitely be returning to Gene for my next cut. He and the entire Salon Kroma staff are really great people who are good at what they do.
