Gene is not only an amazing hair stylist and color expert, but he is the owner of this salon, and is an amazing guy to boot! I just read a review someone wrote on 6/7/07 who rated this #1 salon in town a 1-star salon, and I wanted to set the records straight. The staff has been extremely friendly to me, and it's been a great experience thus far! For the last 2 years, I've been going to Gene for my hair cut, and yes, he is booked 4-6 weeks in advance for optimal appointment slots. And yes, all the stylists are busy because they are excellent at what they do. Gene is honest and forthright about what he thinks looks good on his clients -- and I for one, appreciate his candor. He advises for and against certain cuts that I am considering, and ends up giving me a fabulous cut every time. He is also such a caring person that he ran out and fed the meter for me (with his quarters, not mine) the last time I was there to make sure that my car won't get towed. Gene, Michael (the receptionist), and the other stylists are such kind people, I don't believe there is a mean bone in their body. BTW, in case you have bangs -- no one has cut my bangs better than Gene! One advice if I may: If you are new in town, start with Gene. I wish I did.
Pros: service; the people; and great with long and straight Asian hair
Cons: not always easy to find parking depending on time of your visit
