I used to go to that fancy place in West Chester that charged me over 200 for a hair highlight/color and cut. Sure they give you a glass of bad champagne and a cookie, but my hair did not look any better then when I go to Gemini and get the same exact services for half the price! I am using that new Redken product which smooths and destresses this mane that has a tendency to frizz, has massive volume, and crazy curls. Now I can tame the curls, flat iron without frizz, and the Redken color line is a perfect fit. Aimee (the owner) and the rest of the ladies are a joy! I feel like part of a family - having gone there for 5 years - and my hair looks awesome. There is easy parking, great line of services, and no foo foo just quality services and nice people at an affordable cost. No need to sacrifice anything except for the crappy champagne that you did not like anyway!
