There's a reason I've been a client of this stylist for 12+ years: his is a first class hair salon in every way. Joe always provides an excellent cut & color at a reasonable price, is very personable and professional, and his shop is charming. As other reviewers have stated, I'm frequently complimented on my hair in the days following each visit. Joe definitely "knows his stuff," and I've come to value and trust both his skills and opinions when thinking about "changing things up" with color or the style of my cut. In my experience, Joe goes out of his way to accommodate his clients and is flexible where his schedule permits while also being extremely reliable; in more than a dozen years of monthly service, he's asked that I reschedule just once (due to illness), well in advance of our appointment. Some reviewers have expressed concern about the size and cleanliness of the shop, but I disagree. The shop may seem small compared to your typical mall salon (with its crowded waiting area and long row of chairs, not to mention the attendant noise and bustle), but it is just the right size for the kind of tasteful, personal experience Joe provides. The shop is stylishly well appointed and the atmosphere relaxing while not without its idiosyncratic charms; I love the snow dome collection! Ruth writes of an overflowing "garbage can" but there is simply a wastebasket tucked beneath the sink, and I've never felt the space was unclean or messy. In fact, I would recommend a visit to www.genrehairstudio.com, which features photos that truly reflect the quality and character of the shop. In short, there is nothing generic about Genre Hair Studio, and it is highly recommended.
