It is sad that I have to write this, but I do. I had a very poor experience with Catherine. The weave re-done was VERY tight. I have a high tolerance pain, yet the way the extensions were put it was extremely tight. I said it to Catherine several times, however, all that I got back was ""well, if you can't deal with it, I can't do them"". I was VERY shocked. I needed my extensions, but I wish I just walked away. To credit ; I did like the how the extensions were placed, I liked the flatness of the braids, but after a week ( not kidding) of not being able to put my head on a pillow I went to a different salon ( unfortunately Catherine was out of town) and upon evaluation needed to have my extensions removed. I have sore sites all around where the extensions were placed, I need to wait a little to get extensions re-put in,and I am very upset, as long hair is a part of me, and the extensions were there to help my hair grow after a bad haircut. Not to mention that it cost me another 200 to have the extensions removed. Very upset. As well as the fact that I felt that I had to say everything : how I wanted to have my extensions put it, where , etc. I had a piece from a previous stylist what was added to one side to even out the fullness. Catherine didn't think it was needed, I did, but I am used to trusting the stylist ( mistake all around in this case) , but when I came home , I very visibly had much less hair on one side, then the other, and you could really tell from the back. Catherine DID offer to put it in later, but with her schedule and my schedule, it was very difficult to make arrangements on time. The fact that I had to walk out with the hair neither blow-dried, no styled - because she ran out of time . Although blow drying does not take that much time - made me walk out in tears. I have never had a stylist treating me poorly like that. she did offer to sit under the 'hood"" ( the kind you get your color done under) . but WHAT would I look like AFTER? An afro? Disappointment. Yes, it is cheap. I saw a lot of positive reviews and that is why I went to Catherine. Upset with the way I was treated and the result.
Cons: You get what you pay for
