I decided to give Cutting Crew a try, since it was a lot closer to where I live than my other hair salon, and I had been curious about it for sometime (I mean, the storefront involves flames after all..)
First off, if you are into a calming, fluffy salon, go across the street to Dosha. Not knocking that kind of thing, but different strokes..... Cutting Crew is more like being in a tattoo parlor mixed with auto detailing garage, or something along those lines.
However, if you like a more casual, punk rock atmosphere, give this place a shot. Cool music, nice outgoing people and most importantly a great cut at an amazing price. Mercedes cut my hair, and she did a hell of a job, especially on a somewhat 'unconvential' cut. (and all from just a glance at a reference photo online; impressive!) I'm loving the do!
Seems like this place is popular with guys, so maybe it appealed to the tomboy in me, but definitely the kind of salon chicks can go to as well. Although again, as others have said, not for the faint of heart, or those who prefer more 'elegant' type salons.
I will definitely be going back. My hair and my wallet are happy, and that's hard to beat!
