I read these review before going to the salon and that is why I chose to go. I asked for Ryan and he did an amazing job! I was invited with a drink of my choice...lemonade. I was then asked if I would like to put on a robe, which I chose to do for the experience and it was nice. He spent a good chunk of time washing my hair and massaging my head. Ryan spent a lot of time looking at my hair and assessing what to do with it. He asked what I wanted and I asked him what he thought. Together we decided on a cut. It looks better than I expected. It is my favorite cut I have ever had. He has a lot of experience and is licensed in 3 states which is why he probably is a little more pricy. It was worth $75 plus tip.
