A study came out saying that a bad hair day can in fact affect a person's mood. Well I've had 4 bad hair years, so let's just say I've been feeling pretty low in the self-esteem/ attractiveness area. After moving from Boston to Baltimore, I attempted a haircut at every place here that was reviewed as wonderful and fantastic, only to find out every single place I tried was an utter disappointment. I'm pretty serious about my hair, so when I read what great reviews Salon Joseph had, I was willing to make the 1 hour drive to Arlington.
I was cautiously hopeful, but after all the disappointments, my expectations were still pretty low. I brought photos of what I wanted, hoping beyond hope he might be the first stylist in a half decade who would listen to me.
Sure enough, he delivered. I was shocked how fast the whole thing went (only a half hour!), but I finally got exactly what I wanted. I walked out of there for the first time feeling pretty and excited, that maybe my luck had turned around. I've had only good hair days since then, and my hair has been growing out wonderfully. Testament of a great cut.
Joseph is really busy, as you can imagine, and unfortunately I ended up missing 2 appointments with him b/c of the insane DC traffic. After missing an appointment with him, I ended up cheating and trying another salon in DC to get a trim, only to end up getting yet another terrible haircut. I deserved it, that's what I get for being impatient and cheating on the best stylist I could have ever asked for. If I can ever make it to my appointments with him, I know I won't be disappointed!
If you've been in my position, please please please go see him. I think your luck will turn around, and you deserve to feel pretty too!!!
Pros: wonderful service and cut
