Well, I truly tried to like this place. I really hoped I would. Everyone is delightful and very friendly, the space is in a great location, and it has a very cool vibe. Unfortunately, the results were just not there. \r
Now, it would be easy to criticize after one visit. Instead, I hung in there for a second visit. I gave it two haircuts over 4-5 weeks. Neither one was what I wanted. I will say, the first was at least in the ballpark and I figured after it grew out a bit and having the same stylist again, maybe a connection would be made. Unfortunately, this one was simply awful! I wear a classic, men's tailored haircut. A simple concept; tapered short on the sides and back, longer on the top (3-4 inches), parted at the side. I thought this time we could advance and get closer to what I wanted. Instead of a taper, the sides and back were clippered all the way to the top, one length. That is by no means tapered. I typically ask for scissor over comb to do the sides and back, here I got either a lot of thinning shear or clippers. Neither produced a good result. I wanted no loss of length on the top, just a bit of texturing. Instead, lots of thinning, no point cutting and now I have a bit of a weight line on the sides and no blend. The crown was butchered, way too short and may be weeks before it will lay down again. Not to mention the pronounced break in the back that looks like something I would have expected from Super-Cuts.\r
I can understand not every stylist may have the skills for certain things. In that case, I recommend passing on the experimentation and forwarding on the client to someone that can do justice to what they want. \r
Again, lovely people (including my stylist here who is so very nice), but the results were what I would expect from a $10 chop shop. It is so incredibly hard to find someone that can do a good men's haircut in this city. The quest continues to find someone that understands that there is something between a buzz cut and some silly, ultra trendy looks. When did ""classic"" become outdated? I really wanted the search to be over. Time to start over.
