Let me start off by saying that I NEVER write reviews on CitySearch (this is my first one), and that I have NEVER been pleased with my hair color in all the years that I have been going to ""color specialists""... Bear with me, as this is a long review, but I just want everyone to know how AMAZING Jessica is!!!! :)
Since I had so many less-than-impressive coloring experiences, I started coloring my own hair for awhile, and had the ""ombre"" look (dark roots and blonde length/ends). I model for a living, and didn't want to have that trendy look to my hair anymore, so I decided to try to find a color specialist who could make my hair one color, without it being two-toned or uneven.
Anyway I was in Columbus for a photo shoot, and had a big audition coming up for a magazine cover. I decided to go out on a whim and research some top hair salons in Columbus to see if someone could give me the color that I desired -- a rich auburn.
I found Atelier Salon's website, and saw that all of the stylists had many positive reviews. So I called and asked if they could fit me in that day, and they did! Jessica happened to have an opening, and I was literally praying that my hair would turn out the way I wanted it to, as I was nervous due to many mediocre salon coloring experiences in the past.
When I came in, I was greeted by Erin, who wasn't as friendly as I would have expected (considering I was a brand new client). However, I just assumed that maybe she was having an off-day, and decided not to let that bother me as a first impression. Anyway, a few minutes later I was warmly greeted by Jessica who took me to her station to discuss what I wanted.
She took the time to ask questions to make sure that she knew the EXACT color that I wanted. I had shown her a picture of a a dark auburn, but then she showed me a picture of a medium auburn, which I like a lot better. She knew what I was describing, and found the exact picture to match!!
She was so incredibly professional, and is incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable when it comes to hair color. It was a two-step process to get the color I wanted, and I am still in awe of how amazing my color looks!! When she rinsed and dried my hair, I was so pleased with how well it complimented my eye color and my skin tone. I was so excited that I hugged her -- twice!! ;)
I literally teared up the next day as I was looking at it in the mirror because it was the first time that I 100% LOVED my hair color, and it wasn't the slightest bit streaky, uneven, or two-toned!! The color and the evenness is literally perfect!!!! :) If you are very particular or OCD about your hair color, YOU MUST GO TO JESSICA!! You will not be disappointed!!!! :) I will definitely be going back for my touch-ups because she has created the perfect color formulation for me!! Thank you, Jessica!!!! :)
