I have been going to Stylemasters for about 7 years now, and have had my hair cut & styled by several of their stylists. They never disappoint. They are courteous, understanding, and they listen to you, which is kind of important when its YOUR hair! They also spend a good deal of time on your shampooing, including massaging your scalp, which is fantastic at the end of a long day. They are always able to get me in for an appointment within a day to a few days notice, and my appointments have NEVER started more than a couple minutes late & that is rare.
I have been around the block when it comes to salons and have been unhappy with several for various reasons (stylists were snobbish or talked TOO much about their personal lives, were too rough with my hair, didn't cut it the way I asked them to, appts start late, etc.) until I found Stylemasters. I used them for my wedding hairstyle (as did 5 other members of my family), and wedding day make-up, and I was extremely pleased. I can't say enough about them, and Jody who does my hair, is AWESOME!
The only reason I did not give them 5 stars was because of their prices. When I started going there years ago, they charged $33 for a shampoo, cut & blowdry. Its now $45, which feels like a lot. However, we are a capitalist society when people are willing to pay for it, they are within their rights to charge that much. It also seems to be the going rate in this area, so when you compare apples to apples, they are in line with other salons that offer the same level of service. I may have to go back to a Hair Cuttery-type place if my financial situation gets worse, I can't justify spending that much on my hair if I can't pay the bills - but it would pain me greatly since I have grown to love the place. I just won't get the attention and care anywhere else!
Pros: Great people, talented staff, attentive
