I have amazing hair.. I was born with it. 5 years ago, I made an appointment with Allen, the owner at Jackson Ruiz and he changed my life. The cut i got was amazing, and worth every penny (90 dollars). Slowly but surely, the prices increased, but what is money if it makes you feel that great and confident, right? Well, Allen got more and more successful, and more and more busy, and by last year or so, didn't even bother to look at my hair while he was cutting it so that instead, he could micromanage his slaves of interns. I was still in denial at this point. Then the high pressure sales that Jackson Ruiz had avoided for many years became incessant. The last time I was there, they went so far as to put at minimum 200 dollars worth of the products they used in my hair into a basket and shoved it in my face as I was paying. I was so put off, but still, I believed it was all worth it. Then, a friend of mine and an employee of Jackson told me how Allen had treated her over the past few years and I couldn't support his business any longer. To make matters worse, I recently got a letter informing me that he would be raising his rates to 140!! That is outrageous considering he rushes so much through a haircut that it's uneven and unhealthy looking. I went to Topaz today after a reccomendation, and for much less than half the price I got a 10 times better hair cut. Trust me, as a 5 year client, it's not what it's made out to be. The staff is rude, curt and the service really isn't worth the price. Sorry to say, that the greed and expansion of this salon has really put me and several other regular clients off to the point that if they don't do something to change their practices, they'll likely be in some financial trouble.
Pros: the orange water is good, shampoos are relaxing, and robes are nice and comfortable
Cons: too many to list..expensive, rude, little parking, lacking in quality
