This place is A-mazing. Especially for difficult curly hair. Emmet is a master at listening and helping to repair damaged hair. He's cautious and conservative - in the best sense of the word. For instance, if he doesn't know your hair well he'll do what he KNOWS will work and than ask you to come back a few weeks later to see how your hair has reacted and make improvements. By the way, he doesn't charge ANYTHING for this second round touch-up/trim.
The salon has a really laid back feel, casual, comfortable feel; not like you've walked into the Hyatt-Regency on Ivy League Sorority Alumni night. (You know you've been in these places. You're sure their going to check your bank account balance - before they overcharge you for mediocre service - to see if you deserved to be admitted.)
The prices are super reasonable, especially for the quality of service you get.
If Judy's Book offered more than 5 stars, I'd give them all to Vasuda. You! Girl with the crazy, frizzy-headed mop and the deep frown! Get thee to Vasuda and Emmet NOW!!
