NO REFUNDS HERE. Your hair is your best accessory and when Kristin (salon owner) takes the "don't care; it's not my problem" attitude, thats a RED flag.

I had a severe reaction to a product they used on my head and sought medical

I love going to the Thomas West salon to get my hair done, but I decided to try the groupon and get a discount. First problem is I was notified when I sat down in the chair, that I would need to pay $100 extra if I wanted the full strength

Went to this place on the Pretty City deal only to be told (not at the time I made the appointment, mind you) after having gone all the way there, after I was sitting in the chair, after I'd gone through the consultation, after the colorist had begun mixing the color, that the "single process color" deal applied to a root touch up. What?! So, it was double the special price for her to mess up my hair. She seemed incapable of conceiving of a hair color between hers & my own. I should never have said "Like yours, but not as dark." I should have brought a picture. She kept saying that if she didn't make it as dark as hers there'd be almost no change. It's really dim in there, very hard to see, so I deferred to her. She said she would see what brainstroming ideas she could come up with, since she didn't want to have it be too dark & have me "freak out," saying I seemed like the type who would. This made me feel as though I were being unreasonable and rude and should lighten up, which is not an instinct I should have followed. Before she started, she said she did it not quite as dark as hers, but let me tell you, it's darker. She said she'd use a tone that would add warmth. She didn't. The color is very dark & VERY drab. It was too hard to tell before I left due to the poor lighting & the fact my hair was still mostly wet. It was nearly dry when I got to my well-lit home and I was pretty surprised. It's not the end of the world. Luckily it's semi-permanent & will lighten so I can go somewhere in a month or 2 to have them warm or brighten it a little. Save yourself the time & trouble. I heard great things about the owner & another colorist in a lot of reviews (Kristin & Jaimy) and it wasn't either of them who did this to my hair, since according to the receptionist who booked me, they are booked all month. I thought I'd walk out with a Kate Beckinsale sort-of hair color, but ended up super dark hair that has an awful, unnatural tone to it.

Pros: Excellent work and attention to detail, performed in a timely manner, great value
