I have tried only a few salons, but swore off cost cutters and great clips when I was little and they CONSTANTLY cut my bangs crooked. I went to Regis for a few years, but didn't care for the way they price (oh, you got the expert this time, that will be $10 extra cause shes been here longer). I went here first on trade, but they stopped accepting it and I'm still hooked. Its been about 3 years and I don't think I'll let anyone else do my hair. Carrie, my stylist, has always read my mind and done exactly what I wanted, and I always leave feeling like a million dollars. The atmosphere is very relaxed. They often have pets there. There is the shop's cat, and lots of times cute small dogs keep you company too. I wouldn't suggest having your nails done there, both times I wasn't impressed with the job they did. But hair cuts, styling, and highlights/ lowlights were always fabulous!
