I'd heard great things about Chi Wah, so I was shocked when I sat for two hours in her chair and listened to her talk about herself, her failed first marriage, her troubled second marriage, how Ramon Santiago wanted to sleep with her. Holy Moly. She actually took time to find a picture of her in her wedding dress to show me how beautiful she was.
This would have been bearable if I liked the result of my hair, but I didn't. I ended up slightly orange, with a bill of $175.
Fool that I am I stopped back in for a bang trim three weeks later, and she chopped them so short I almost wept. But I'm a big girl and I know that hair will grow back.
But the hairdresser I went to next told me that she (Chi Wah) had bleached my hair to do the highlights, so now I have to wait for it to grow out before he can do highlights without damaging my hair.
Beware. I think she might have been great once ... but no more.
