Wow! I look great!!! I had an appointment this morning at Andrew James Salon to have a change and I couldn?t be more pleased. I have long straight hair (forever) and finally decided to join my chic pals and add some flair. I chose the salon because a friend recommended it and for that tip I love her even more. Even though I had been told differently, when I nervously got to the salon, I still expected the usual loud music, trendy decor and pouty hair fashionistas. No way. It felt like I walked into somebody?s home. I was welcomed immediately by the front desk person who physically stepped out from behind the desk (a very nice, hospitable gesture I thought), and was offered my choice of beverage. (Now I like coffee so I jumped at it to calm my quaking nerves.) Then rather than sitting down and waiting, I was introduced to several of the ladies working at the salon and warmly led by Megan to her station. She never rushed me but let me nervously ramble about my long hair, about how worried I was to cut it after so many years, how I wanted a change, that I am a professional so I can?t be too edgy, my absolute freakout about highlighting it (we did and I love it), etc. Then we agreed on the new cut, the shade, how to replicate the style, and away we went. I walked out of that salon feeling absolutely, massively edgy yet professional (sort of Chic but not Over-the-Top) and I have not stopped smiling since. I recommend this salon ? and Megan ? so wholeheartedly! Go there! It?s a great place for atmosphere, hospitality, style and comfort.
Pros: Great beverages, No blaring music, Not rushed
