I wear my hair in its natural state. Big, curly, and fluffy. I needed to get my ends trimmed and I also wanted to have bangs. I had been reading about this new natural hair salon in my area and decided to try it out. I made my appointment and told the reseptionist that I wanted my hair cut only. I was under the impression, from the website, that a cut would be $10 if I came with my hair already straightened. So I flat ironed it the night before the appointment. When I met the stylist, she asked what I wanted. I showed her a picture of the cut and she asked if I was having my hair washed and everything. When I told her no, she said that she could not do that style without washing and cutting my hair wet and then doing a dry cut. I asked her how much all of this would cost and after doing some calculations she quoted me $40. I really wanted this style so I settled in for what I tought would be a day at the salon. She assured me that she had been doing natural hair for a long time and could have me back to work in an hour and a half. She started examining my hair and said that I needed about an ince cut off. My hair was past my bra strap so I was comfortable with losing an inch. She washed my hair and gave me a great scalp massage. Then the detangled and started the wet cut. She cut what looked like half an inch off while it was wet and then proceeded on the the blow dry. I was really pleased with the blow dry because she did not burn me or snag my hair. Then came the dry cut. So you know how stylists turn you away from the mirror, do their thing, and turn you back for the big reveal? I sat their patiently as she cut and flat ironed my hair. Before she turned me around, she said "I cut about and inch all together". When I looked in the mirror, my hair was barely past my shoulders now!!! This woman cut AT LEAST four inches of my hair off!! I agreed to one..one inch! I really hate when stylist get scissor happy and then lie when I know how much hair I walked into the salon with. At the time, I was not angry. I was disappointed, but I still loved the end result. I had a new look and my hair was bouncy and healthy. She did not load my hair with tons of product and she was able to do my hair in two hours. My disappointment came when I washed my hair and it was mush shorter and the amount of hair cut off had really hit me like a ton of bricks. I would definately go to the salon again, but you MUST be careful if you have a strong attachment to you rhair and you let them cut it.
