Monogamy has never been a strong suit of mine in the hair stylist department. Every few months, I feel an overwhelming polygamist urge to mix things up & try a new salon all together. One unfaithful day, I decided to stray on over to Patrick Cochran at Adore & I couldn't be happier that I found him!
Patrick is not only a warm fuzzy, who you feel you've known for years after just introducing yourself, but he listens to your ideas while also having an objective eye. Sometimes, what a client wants in theory is simply unrealistic for real life. Patrick knows this & takes every person's hair texture, face shape, lifestyle, etc into account when deciding on the best cut & color for the individual. I can honestly say that I have received more compliments on my color & the overall health of my hair since I've been going to Patrick.
Speaking of, that's the other awesome thing about Adore: they carry some of the best hair care products on the market today. If you're feeling earthier, they've got Pureology. If you're a product junkie & love the sweeter scents, they've got Bumble & Bumble. They even carry the highly coveted & cult favorite Moroccan Oil.
The prices are fairly competitive & comparable to those of other high end salons, but hey, they include a complimentary beverage too! Who doesn't like to chat it up & get their hair did all while sipping on a glass of vino?!?! Adore ain't cheap, but the results are worth every penny. Every stylist looks incredibly talented, but Patrick is so personable that I can't imagine spending time in anyone Else's chair. Go see him. Now.
Pros: Stylist feedback, flex schedules, products, location, etc
Cons: Kinda pricey, but seems to be the norm these days...
