I tried the Ouidad Salon after my mom bought me a present of a trial size bag of the ouidad hair products.
I LOVE the ouidad hair products! The heat and humidity gel is awesome- it can keep my hair from frizzing almost every day.
So I was super excited to go to the salon that was known for dealing with curly hair. The price scared me a little bit- in brooklyn I'm used to paying closer to $60 for a cut, but at Ouidad, it's more like $120 and up, but I decided having a great cut would be worth it.
My experience at the salon was fine, even a bit fun at times. It was fun being in a place with only other people who had curly hair!! However, I was constantly passed back and forth between two people, making me feel like I didn't really have a connection with the woman who was cutting. I am growing my hair out, and ask for more shape and body. She took about 4 minutes to cut all of my wildly big and long hair. It didn't seem like enough time cutting to create more body, but I was suddenly shuffled off to another person, so I didn't get to tell her.
The shampoo session and blow dry session was great, with one of the assistants, because she told me what she was doing the whole time, and it was like getting a lesson in how to take care of your curly hair.
However, I have never been able to duplicate the curls they produced that day, and my haircut has absolutely NO body, it just hangs off my scalp. I've had much much better $60 haircuts in brooklyn.
When I left the salon, I bought all the products, had to tip two people almost equally, paid for a very expensive haircut, and ended up spending over $220.
I haven't been happy with my cut except for that first day.
I won't be going back.
