Called for an appointment and specifically asked for a stylist who knew who to cut naturally curly hair. Told I did not want it cut short just trimmed and my hair had a tendency to shrink when dry so to be carefull and not cut too much. Long story short she butchered my hair, and even said she had cut it way too short and apologized for the shortness. I was told later by people how much it aged me. At 50 I do not need aged. It went from shoulder length to ear length. Although she was very nice, but she obviously had no experience with curly hair. The girls up front should have let me know they had no one who could cut curly hair. I could have saved months of growing it back.

I would give 0 stars if I could. This place used to be great despite the price. Now, the quality you get is definitely not worth the price.

I went in during the holidays to get a haircut. My stylist was Tyler. I had a bad feeling about halfway through and I should have trusted it, because I ended up in tears, it was such a TERRIBLE haircut. I was pretty specific about wanting lots of layers and swooped bangs. I ended up with layers above my ears with no blending, and he just chopped a super short chunk out of the front. It was like he just walked off the street into this job with no training. Even I could tell he had no idea what he was doing. If I had wanted to mess up my hair, I could have done it myself for free. And to add insult to injury, he didn't even bother trying to style it. Just blow dry and go. That's the whole reason I didn't go to Cost Cutters in the first place, but I'm thinking even they could have done a better job.

Another stylist ended up fixing my hair as best she could, but even she told me I would just have to pin it back and be creative as it grows out. And that's all I can do. I'm probably going to just have to get it chopped to avoid growing an uneven mullet.

Under no circumstances should you let Tyler ANYWHERE near your head with a pair of scissors. I find it hard to imagine that I'm the only one who has had a bad experience with him. There's a difference between a stylist having an 'off' day and a stylist who has no business cutting hair.

I can only comment on Angie L. and would recommend her to anyone. I stopped a woman with a great cut & style and asked her where she went. She put me on to Angie & I've had great experiences with her for 2 years. Pleasant, professional, listens, suggests and styles are great.

Heather has done my hair since 2005 and I have zero complaints. She is professional, personable and take the TIME to listen to what I want each time and it might take a few minutes to explain it. :p... She listens and my hair turns out great every time! She also cut 8 inches off of my daughters hair tonight and boy it sure needed it. For a mom that didn't want any of it cut, she made my daughter seem like a new child! Short in the back and long in the front... she charged only 15 bucks for her haircut and shampoo. Now THAT is value.While yes, it's true.... if you want to maintain your hair at a certain color... it takes money .. let's face it.. There are not many places that one can go around here that you wouldn't be charged something comparable.Personally, I think the person that posted the negative post was out of a personal vendetta... and her "friend" that supposedly had a bad experience.Heather used to be with KJ & Komany. Luckily, I found her through a friend who knew where she was... She is at New Creations in Waterloo off of Kimball by Arby's. It's close, and even less expensive than the exorbitant prices that KJ demands. Now,I go to Heather closer to home, she cuts my daughter for a reasonable price and I get my favorite hairdresser back. Life is good! I wouldn't ever go back to KJ. Personally, I think that the new mgmt has too many cat fights and is not focused on PEOPLE, but rather the money. Keith... you were missed. It will never be the same. Wish you were still there... many feel the same. Thanks for listening... and don't let one person's poor judgement be a catalyst on your decision to not go to Heather. She is incredibly talented!

My stylist recently had left the salon I have always gone to. I went online to find her and stumbled on this review. I strongly disagree with it. Heather Halbfass has done my hair for many years and I've always received many compliments. I have many friends who go to her also and we would follow her anywhere. Remember hairstylists are not magicians.

Excellent customer service....priced comparable to other full service salons( hair cuts are under $25.00)...experienced friendly staff....they also have great products like Bumble and Bumble. I have two stylist that I love there, Angie L. and Trish H. They always give me a fresh new look with brilliant color and a precise haircut. The Aveda makeup is amazing as well.Hands down the best in the Cedar Valley.

I think it will grow into that cut in a month or so. I don't want to go for a cut and have to grow it into what I want. If that was the case - she should have told me that. It is possible that it was too short to accomplish what I wanted and I would have understood that. In fact before we started I asked her if it was possible. I told her I didn't want any of the front length taken off - it use to go down about 2 inches below my ears - now it is at the bottom of my ears. I went to KJ and Company which is suppose to be one of the prime places in this town. After having worked with it all morning - I am happy with it - but still nothing like I wanted.
SHE IS BURNT TOAST! Out of my life! I have listened when they say to always talk to your beautician and make sure you both understand what is wanted. I talked to her for almost 5 minutes before she started. My thought is that if you go to the same one all the time - they get lax and don't think they need to try anymore.

I was NOT impressed!! I went in there for a haircut and to turn my blonde hair brown. I spent over FOUR hours in there and it cost me $200 when she said it would be about $120! I was furious. And to make things worse, TWO weeks later my hair was blonde again. On top of the $200, I purchased special shampoo the lady said would make my hair color last. Yeah, right! Two weeks! My stylist was Heather Halbfass.

I think this place does a fabulous job at cutting hair and waxing eyebrows, but you will pay for it, it is not cheap at all and can become quite pricey as they want you to buy the shampoo, conditioners and all the hair jazz that goes with.
They have great customer service and are speedy quick to get you in, just costly is all, so if yo uare pinching pennies, not hte best place to go.

PROS: great stylists
CONS: high prices!
