Downtown Royal Oak has a really fun, hip atmosphere and Aqua Salon totally fits in, and they do it without the snooty attitude I've gotten at some other establishments. The employees I met were trendy, attractive and friendly girls... but they weren't the type to put natural female competition over their jobs. I saw Bianca for a hair cut and described what I wanted (a Victoria Beckham bob, not her latest style). About 20 minutes later she was finished and it looked great, but I decided I wanted it a bit shorter. Without batting an eye, she modified the cut until I was totally satisfied, then styled it to perfection! It is literally better than I had imagined it, as my hair was quite damaged from a tragic salon visit back in early August. The price was a reasonable $40, but keep in mind you cannot put the tip on your credit or debit card and will have to either bring cash or use their ATM! \r
This was a great job for the price and area, and I will definitely come back here next time, and I'd recommend it to my friends!
Pros: Great staff, great cut, upbeat atmosphere
Cons: You have to pay for parking (It's the RO...)
