I was hoping to have a really fabulous salon experience, and in that respect, Studio 162 was disappointing. It wasn't a bad haircut, but it wasn't what I expected for the price.
The salon is clean and well-maintained; the reception staff was polite and helpful. I had one of the top stylists in the salon, and I paid for the privilege. But the cut wasn't measurably better than any other cut I had had recently--at a lower price. I wasn't impressed with her technique or with the end result. It was certainly serviceable, but not a great salon cut.
They also pushed pretty hard on the product sales, which never impresses me. Overall, not a bad experience, but it easily could have been a lot better.
