David has been styling hair for many, many years. I was referred to him by a guy friend who is VERY picky about his look. I've followed David around ever since. Not too excited about the $100 each time for a cut, but he's so good that I make the sacrifice of skipping a couple happy hours during hair month. It all washes out (pun not intended). :o) And the DJ isn't too loud- but I have only gone during the day. I'd forego all the whooha of a DJ, and the bazillion assistants they have running around, and the latte bar, for lower cost cuts! You do pay more for the "experience".
