I had very long hair, and then I wanted short hair. Women will feel me here - this is a momentous haircut. A friend recommended BR to me, and I had met my stylist before at social occasions (never knowing what he did for a living). I walked out feeling like a million bucks, and like Brian (ask for Brian - you won't regret it) really understood what I wanted.
Brian gave me an amazing cut that's not fussy, and I don't need to go back every two weeks for a trim. He spent a lot of time studying my hair and feeling it and asking me questions. Be forewarned however - a haircut by Brian takes a long time. Expect to be at the salon for at least and hour and a half to two hours, and expect to have your hair washed multiple times so he can see "what it's doing". A fabulous experience all around.
Extra bonuses: cocktails, wine, or other assorted cold drinks. A great open atmosphere to the whole space (not too trendy or too cool for anyone over the age of 20). And they do not push product on you when you're paying your bill (which is more than reasonable by the way).
Located in a neat little neighborhood - take a walk around after you get your hair done.
