I have been Carol's client for about 10 years. Carol Spangler, the proprietor and sole stylist at this charming salon, is one of the most skilled hair cutters/stylists I've ever known... at any price. I made my first appointment with her while my husband was in school for a 2nd career. I was simply trying to save a little money on hair care, opting to leave my former salon where I'd spend a couple of hours and $150 for a cut and color. \r
I have thick, curly hair that is somewhat unruly, so a good haircut is critical to the success of any manipulation needed to coerce my hair into a reliable shape! She is so technically skilled that she can fashion a flawless haircut from a photograph from media sources. Plus, she is also gifted in assessing the merits and do-ability of any style I bring to her. If it won't work with my hair, she is honest and says so. And Carol always offers alternatives to get the gist of the look I seek! From a technical perspective, I am also always amazed that even when a long period passes between haircuts, my hair still looks like it has a shape... just longer than the original haircut, but basically the same shape! That's rarely the case... after a few weeks, most short haircuts look bad... scraggly and truly unkempt looking. I have no idea how she does it, but Carol's cutting style creates a shape that lasts and lasts! \r
Perhaps it's Carol's amazingly gentle and open temperament that accentuates her natural hair cutting and styling skills. She's a gem of a human being, so in addition to always getting a great haircut - and sometimes expertly applied color, too - I get an emotional boost, too! She's personable, kind-spirited, and really listens to me - whether I'm talking about my hair or my life! In short, Carol Spangler is fabulous!\r
As an aside, I echo the sentiments offered by others; that Hair Expressions is a little quirky and no frills, but it is a charming space, just the same. But, in truth, Carol is the ultimate drawing card. If you are after a good style, quality hair care services, at a good price, Hair Expressions is the place!
