This is my first time messaging.\r
This started out as a good place with friendly staffs. My first experience was very good and unique. However over the past year, I and my 6 year old have had drastically decreasing negative experiences. Initially we thought it was a sporadic hair cutter and thought we will look past it. \r
However of late, we think they make us feel deliberately unwelcome. We cannot help but feel that this salon is trying to build a exclusively homogenous/uniform clientele.\r
The latest experience was unique and embarrassing: with a very hurried hair cutter, who twice sprayed in my eye, never bothered to look/ask my opinion. I tried to compliment the new flat panels, which was responded by a grunt meaning 'it was not meant for your kind'. The person never bothered to ask my name, but remembered another walk-in's who registered with the front desk. She unseated me very hurriedly and called on him waiting: ""Toni... would you like to come now"". My tip was met with another grunt and 'A good afternoon for you Sir'. Avoidance of gaze throughout.\r
These experiences, despite our (may be not my wife) being good tippers: 2-5$. My wife and 6 year old experienced the same in the first and second visits and have decided not to go again. Instead of being fazed off, I will continue to visit this place and see what is being done to improve. If this 'southern' attitude of the 60s and 70s is seen in metro-suburb of Boston, this is really bashful.
Pros: Nice atmosphere and clean
Cons: Bad staff with attitude
