I've been to Sheila's on a few occasions, mostly since they're so close to my favorite book store (Barnes & Nobles) & is in the same shopping center. While there is a ""cheaper"" hair salon in the shopping center, I prefer to go to Sheila's since I know that the people there are friendly, professional, & don't treat you like cattle. (The Hair Cuttery is always packed, sometimes terse, & will cut your hair & ship you out the door.) I'm willing to pay a few extra dollars for good service. \r
On every visit I've had my stylists talk to me like an actual person, and on every visit they strive to meet my goals: to have hair that looks good & doesn't take a lot of maintenance (since I'm hopeless with hair). I've mostly gone there for the hair cuts, but I've also taken advantage of one or two of their other services & have been pleased. \r
The only thing that will keep some people away is the price. With wash, cuts, & styling starting at about $35 for women, many will hesitate before coming in. However, I will tell you that it's worth paying for. I've often been dissapointed by chains such as Hair Cuttery or whatever the place is in Wal-Mart (I know, I know, but I was in a hurry). I've rarely been dissapointed by actual salons (the ones that charge more), and I've never been dissapointed by Sheila's.
Pros: good cuts, lots of different services, fast service
Cons: higher prices may turn some away
