As a military wife, finding a new hair stylist in a new city is always a challenge. I found the reviews for Stephanie on this website and was thrilled! I wanted to color my hair brown - I have always been blonde, so this was a big change.
Unfortunately, I didn't feel like Stephanie listened to what I asked for. I had been with the same stylist for years before I moved, and never had to say what I wanted more than once (in this case, don't take off much length and don't dye it too dark). I think to work with Stephanie you have to be more aggressive in what you want - not my personality and not what I want in a salon experience.
I was very concerned about the color being too dark -I did NOT want it to look too dark/black. My hair turned out VERY dark. I went home and waited a day or so to see if I was just shocked by the change, but realized quickly it was really THAT dark. I googled how to do damage control and spent the next week washing with Prell Shampoo over and over again. She also immediately told me to cut my past-shoulder length hair into a bob. I was growing my hair out, which I told her and said I didn't want to cut much length. She put in VERY short, chunky layers! It was not at all my style (Really? Chunky layers? Not a fan.) and took almost 9 months to grow out those awful layers.
I would go to Stephanie if you are looking for a new, fresh look. She definitely has strong opinions, which isn't always bad, it just didn't turn out well for me
