I live in Florida and the only real salon of note who does thermal reconditioning is Vincent J in Ft. Lauderdale. I was traveling to NYC for business and thought I would get my yearly straightening done to avoid a 3 hour drive to south Florida. Having previously gone to John Barrett salon for my original straightening, I called and was quoted $600 for a partial TR. Following the advise of many columns who included Hayato as a reasonably priced salon with excellent reviews, I thought I would give it a try. Kanna was my stylist. I have very thick and long hair. My thermal cost $270, and $80 for a cut. Kanna works fast ( I was out in 3 hours from start to finish), did a thoroughly outstanding job, and gave me a great cut. I cannot recommend this salon enough. I got alot of attention. Kanna was very attentive to my needs and understood the cut I wanted, and her assistant was great as well.
My only complaint is the receptionist. She was not particularly friendly or accommodating. Be advised: the salon takes credit cards, but all tips are in cash only.
Hayato is well worth the trip!
