I wanted a body wave and a haircut in the style popular in Japan. I am Chinese-American and wanted someone experienced in cutting Asian hair.
I came inside to a decent, well-kept room playing Chinese pop music. I was introduced to Ricky, the Creative Director of Hair Zone. He looked at the picture that I brought, made some constructive criticism, and then proceeded. He was confident and firm, but had a friendly, soft-spoken manner that I found comforting. He appeared to really know what he was doing, and in fact, for a Monday, he was actually pretty busy.
Prices were fair. $85 for perm and $50 for cut, but he charges more than the others. The other stylists seemed competent, but I would recommend Ricky. He cuts slow, but I like his attention to detail. The girl before must have really had a bad experience. Maybe it was her stylist.
Pros: Experienced stylist, Fair Prices, Asian Hair expertise
Cons: Iffy Exterior, Slightly hard to find
