I chose AR Salon because of its fantastic reviews. First of all, no one ever sat down with me to talk about my hair. My stylist, Sam, basically asked what I wanted, and when I tried to explain exactly what, he looked bored and cut me off. Then he insulted my hair. Then he proceeded to give me the weirdest haircut ever. After I explained that my bangs were too long and they need to be shorter to do what I want them to, he argued with me and refused to cut them. I ended up with an awkward cut that's way too long and blunt with a too-short layer on top and weird bangs that take forever to style. Actually, the whole mess takes forever to style and, when I'm done, looks mediocre at best. This is not a problem with my styling skills, as it's still an improvement over what he did to it before I left. The worst part was not the horrible haircut, it's that he refused to listen to any feedback I had.
Pros: Pretty salon, complimentary wine, decent price
Cons: Horrible stylist, rendering cheap price irrelevant
