I have been getting my haircut by Joseph for a few years now, after years of misery at other salons. I have always had a perfect cut every time. He is magical with curly hair and I have recommended him to several people. The true testimony to his cuts is within the week I am planning on coming to see him for a cut, everyone tells me how great my hair looks!! Even after 3 months!

Joseph is the only person in Philadelphia I trust with my shag of curls. When he cuts my hair, he doesn't go at it like a topiary bush, he takes lots of time and uses lots of precision; its like he finds every separate curl and pattern and gives it it's own attention. The result is a cut I'll come back to for years to come. When my hair was longer, he gave me the age appropriate edge I was looking for, which is something I almost thought Impossible in the city (I used to go somewhere else where the curly cuts weren't terrible but I always came out looking and subsequently feeling like my mother circa 1970 something). Since I've gone short, he's been able to give me a refreshing haircut without sacrificing any more of the length than was required. My hair looks healthy and I'm overjoyed.

Joseph is a curlyhead's best friend! He really takes in the whole picture from the moment you walk in - the state your hair is in, how your current style looks, and what you're comfortable with. He patiently cuts your hair, responding to how the curls flow as they are being cut. Once your hair is styled and dried, he has a look to make any adjustments if they are needed. I think it's rare to find a stylist with such sensitivity, and it shows through in how beautiful your hair looks.

I drove from central NJ after meeting someone at a Conference who had a wonderful curly hair look that was done at Signacurl by Joselph. I was on a search for someone who really knows how to cut curly hair. I was not disappointed! I'm happy with my ""5 point by Lehtini"" haircut. I'd call Joseph a creative professional and will definitely drive back when it's time for the next cut!

I have never received so many compliments on my hair until Joseph cut and styled it. At home, I can go curly or straight with ease. My styling times been cut in half!!! And aside from the amazing technical skill, the salon itself is a work of ever changing art. Paintings, stained glass, disco balls, guitars, and more! It's the quality one would expect in a 5 star Rittenhouse Square Salon without any of the pretentiousness that can come with it. There's no need to go anywhere else!

It took me 40 years to find someone who could not only cut my hair but also showed me how to style it. I never have a bad hair day anymore. Joseph is the best! Yes, his price is higher than some but your haircut will last longer and you'll feel so good about yourself that it's worth every penny! If you have curly or wavy or just difficult hair, please, please try Signacurl just once. I promise you won't regret it!

When I moved to Philadelphia four years ago I was in the midst of trying to grow out my curls. Based on reviews, I made an appointment . . . and I'll never go anywhere else. Joseph's great cuts have let me love my curls for the first time in my entire life. He gives you a haircut that matches your face, your style, and how much time you are willing to invest in styling it every day ; and the haircut lasts for weeks. Most importantly, it looks FANTASTIC. He helped me grow my hair out long and it looked great throughout the process. He also styled my hair for my wedding, bringing his tools and his magic to the salon where I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. Joseph is a true talent!

Though I have been getting my curly hair cut by Joseph for a while, I continue to be struck by his knowledge & intuition for shaping my hair according to what looks best for my face & features. My hair, and by extension the rest of me, has never looked more beautiful.

His salon is full of gorgeous art that makes you think. His conversation is as well. Don't expect the idle chitchat & gossip typical of most salons. I also love the spoiled feeling of having someone spend so much time on my hair - he never tries to hustle me out in a hurry, no matter how busy he is.

Go see Joseph, he's worth every penny.

Joseph has been cutting my hair for nearly two years now. The rate at which my hair grows, I have to get it cut about every six weeks.

Here's the reaction I get from my wife EVERY time I come home from getting a cut.

""WOW, this guy is amazing. You're hair looks even better than the last time you got it cut. What is he doing to your hair? It looks awesome!!""

That's the short version, but you get the picture.

Joseph gives me simply the best haircut I've ever had.... by far!

If you have curly hair and would finally like a decent cut without ""wings"" or without looking like an 80s reject, then Joseph at Signacurl can give you just that. However, like all unique artists, he's not for everyone!
If you're offended by rakish humor and intensity, then he's not for you. He's a unusual guy who can really cut curly hair! That's the 100% truth. If you're laid-back and friendly, he will be too. If you're easily offended, you will be! :D

Calling all Curly Girlies ..........
Have I got the guy for you !!!!
Put an end to walking around with a frizzy bowl on your head or wearing a triangle coif !
Joseph at Signacurl will bring your curls personality and style your hair to enhance your best features.
That's what he did for me and that's what he'll do for you.
My hair looked great when I left the salon the other day and has continued to look great every day since - and isn't that the mark of a great haircut?
Try it and I'm sure you'll like it !!!

I have very curly, coarse hair and had pretty much given up on the idea of ever finding a good stylist and then my son and daughter-in-law got me a gift certificate to Signacurl. I was a nervous wreck when I got there but Joseph reassured me and calmed me down- he took me for a quick tour of his studio, explaining the beautiful artwork there.
He was friendly and his own person and I started relaxing. His assistant, Romina, was friendly, chatting with me while she washed my hair and massaged my scalp. When she was done I went to the chair and sat down. Joseph was honest with me about the damage I had done with coloring and recommended letting it grow out for awhile. He examined my curls carefully and I could tell he was studying the curl patterns and the way my hair naturally fell. When he started cutting I knew my hair was in the hands of an artist. He was so careful about every curl on my head and sized up my personality perfectly, giving me a sassy, sexy haircut that I didn't even know my curls were capable of! I am filled with gratitude that I had the privilege of having this man, this artist, cut my hair.
It's been over a decade since I've gone to any salon. Every time I went the first thing the stylist would ask me is if I'd ever straightened my hair. They've always treated my curls like they were issues that had to be dealt with.
Joseph treated my curls like they were beautiful and only needed that beauty revealed.
I will be going back and I highly recommend him to anyone, especially those, who like myself have struggled with finding someone who'd love my curls as much as I do!
Thank you Joseph Lentini!!

I had the worst haircut of my life w/him .He is INSANE RUDE and NARCISSISTIC.
DON'T GO TO THIS CRAZY GUY... SAVE YOUR MONEY. Stick your hair in the blender and it will come out better.
He was also dropped by Ouidad.

I had the most disturbing experience I have had in my entire life when getting my haircut with Joseph. \r
\r
First of all, he had alcohol on his breath. Secondly he is a very strange person and extremely narcissistic. I have dealt with stylists before with egos, but this is in an entirely different category. \r
\r
He also has a collage of photos of topless women directly in front of where you have to sit. I don't mind creative decor, but found this to be completely inappropriate.\r
\r
I actually left there the second he was done cutting knowing that I would never step foot in there again. I am not a psychologist, but know enough to tell you that there is something very disturbed about this man. And after all of this he cut my hair unevenly in the front - my boyfriend was shocked especially after what i paid for the haircut.\r
\r
And I did read some of the comments where they suspected that Joseph might be writing some of the glowing comments about himself. I can't say or not if this is true, but I do find it odd that after every negative review (with experiences very similar to mine) there are four glowing ones right after it.\r
\r
I will say that the colorist is quite good and is very nice.

If you have unruly curls or even nice curls that need a lift, I wouldn't go anywhere else in Philadelphia. Joseph knows how to tame my mane no matter if half my hair falls out after pregnancy, it grows like a weed while pregnant, or if I do stupid things like travel and decide to try Japanese straightening once at another salon and half wreck my hair....and he fixed it while it grew out. I walk in and say...fix it and I walk out with bounce back in my curls.

I am a seriously busy professional with an infant and I don't have time to spend on my hair. I go to Joseph, he gives me a great cut and I just have to wash and run. It works for me. Without his cut, at every other place I have tried in and outside of Philadelphia and in half the major cities, I haven't found anyone who could do the same thing. You could go to the Ouidad salon in Manhattan for a similar cut, pay for the train and pay double the money for a curly hair cut but the cut will not be any better. Other then Ouidad, I don't know anyone else with his skill.

Joseph is an artist....no doubt....in personality and skill. You read some of these reviews that are negative and I wonder if the people wanted the same cut they always had and went to him and he gave them a change. Maybe these people wanted a friend as their stylist instead of a pro hair cutter. Joseph does his thing. I don't interfere with that and he doesn' t interefere with me working on my blackberry while he spends an hour fixing my thick, curly, crazy hair.

THe reason the gross majority rave about him is because those people realize that they finally found an awesome cutter. The more curly and crazy your hair, the more you will appreciate his skill.

i think I have gone to Joseph for about four years. He never ceases to amaze me. I was there yesterday after about 5 months. I waited a long time because half my hair fell out 3 months after having a baby. Even with half falling out I probably still have more then most people. That is how thick and crazy my hair is. He cut it at that point to try and get me through. Then I waited for it to grow...probably about 2 months too long. My hair was flat and I would not leave it down....it looked way too bushy.

Yesterday I got it cut....all that I can say is about 10 people commented about my hair including my husband who usually says nothing. I felt compelled to go back today and show him his work. I never even wait for him to dry it. Getting an hour to get my hair cut is about all I can spare. He always does a great job so when the cut is over, I am back to work. He always wants to dry it but I don't take the time. Today, after a day in the operating room and an hour walking around the city when it was hot and humid, it still looked great. All I did was wash it, throw in his SignaCurl Curl Juice and let it dry. It really looked so awesome, I went to show him since he only ever gets to see the wet version.

I have curly hair so I can only comment about his ability in cutting curly hair. If you have curls, you owe it to yourself to get a cut from Joseph. Spend the money and treat yourself. It is worth every penny. Just plan for it to take an hour because it will take that long....or at least it does for my head.

Love his Curl Juice too.

Joseph Lentini is a master craftsman. From the very beginning his professional manner gave me a sense of confidence in his ability to bring out the very best in my hair. Simply put, no one has ever cared enough about my hair to treat it the way that he does. Joseph's assistant, Romena, is the perfect complement to him. I highly recommend them both.

I have always had trouble with my curly hair and have spent years trying to make it straight. I heard about Signacurl through a friend and figured if I was going to ever embrace my natural curls - now was the time.\r
\r
Not only am I thrilled with the results, but this is the first time I have ever really felt good about curls. I am so happy and cannot wait to go back for my next visit.\r
\r
Joseph was amazing. He is so clearly talented that I trusted him right from the start. He made me feel so good about my hair and has begun the process of teaching me how to get a handle on it. I enjoyed every minute with him and cannot wait to return.

I have been seeing Joseph for help with my curls for almost three years. When I moved to Philadelphia, he had some blunt things to say about how my former stylist in another state had been bleaching and killing my hair. It has been a painstaking process to finally grow out the bleach and allow my curls to recover - but Joseph told me to have patience, and I am glad that I kept returning. Most recently he relaxed the tightest curls at the nape of my neck and it made a huge difference in allowing the curls to fall gracefully and I love the subtle changes. When Joseph does my color and style, I have always come away pleased with the outcome. I definitely have received a lot of compliments in and around Philly about my hair since Joseph has been my stylist!

I started getting my hair cut by Joseph over 20 years ago when I saw someone on the street with beautiful curls and asked her where she got her hair cut. I have been a satisfied (thrilled) customer since. For one period of time when i didn't work in town, I got my hair cut locally, now I look back at pictures and can't imagine what I was thinking, so happy I have returned to Joseph who truly understands how my hair grows, lays and what shape is best for me. He has given me advice on what type of glasses frames to wear and I listened, so happy to have that guidance and his suggestions are right! I would not have realized those particular distinctions without him pointing them out. Besides all that, a visit to his salon is a treat, the decor is great, I have fun whenever I'm there!

I had read all of these wonderful reviews and decided to give Joseph a try. He did not listen to anything I said and he chopped my hair up so badly that when I went to have it corrected, everyone in the new shop came over to see what this guy had done to me. I This guy is a lunatic and shouldn't be allowed to handle a scissors.

I was nervous going somewhere I didn't know about and spending that much money but I had just had it with my hair-I was thrilled with the results! Joseph is great-for the amount of time he spends on your hair it is so worth the money.

We came to see Joseph all the way from Alabama (sans Banjo on knee)\r
I had read about Joseph of Signature's hair Salon in Vogue and on the ""NaturallyCurly"" website. My two daughters and I have extremely curly and unmanageable hair. We thought that there was no creative cut for our hair...and felt doomed to just do the best we could. Last week we were in Philadelphia together and couldn't wait to visit Joseph.\r
We walked in looking like the three mop heads from Alabama and walked out like stylish city girls.\r
Joseph molded each of our cuts to match our features and maybe even our personality:)\r
He instructed us as to how to wash and style our hair. We all love our new look! Thanks Joseph.

I had my hair cut a few weeks back and absolutely love the work he did. I hadn't read any reviews prior to going in, just happened to walk in and get a fabulous cut! I have curly/ wavy hair and now it looks great curly or blown out. I would agree with some other reviews that Joseph does not ask or cut the way you say you want it but in my opinion if you go to someone as great as him and pay what he charges you shouldn't have to tell him exactly what you want. He is great at what he does and doesn't need any direction.

Pros: takes his time, quality work

Cons: strange receptionist

.

Strangers tell me how lovely my hair is! Since Joseph started cutting it, my hair is lively, healthy, and a happy set of curls. Joseph knows what he's doing with curls, and will commit to making your hair look great, if you will too. The result: a person feels beautiful with a great head of hair. He's an ""artiste"" and if you want your curls to look good, trust his judgment. I get good, eclectic conversations; attentiveness, and I walk out the door feeling marvelous. It's worth it!

Joseph took me from ""old lady hair"" back to my raucous curly self and I love it ! Apparently, friends and strangers do too because I get compliments on my cut and curls everywhere I go. He is also candid and honest in recommending hair products that suit my hair even though the products are from his own new fabulous line. In return, I am looking for an independent career-minded woman with a fiesty attitude who is able to converse on a wide range of topics, has a good sense of humor and loves to hug for Joseph. If you or any of your friends fit this description, give Joseph a call and get a hair cut (just don't try to talk to him when he get into ""the hair zone"" ). Didn't think I would do it, did you Joseph?

Pros: The best salon magazine collection ever - foreign and domestic

Cons: You have to be comfortable getting your hair cut in a picture window.

I got a terrific haircut at Signatures, and then, when I couldn't maintain it and went back, Joseph re-cut my hair into a simpler style, which he painstakingly showed me how to keep up. Both times, when I walked out of his salon my hair looked better than it ever had before.

For years, I have wished for a hair stylist to come into my life who was a true artist and could bring out the best look for me in my hair. It always used to bother me when stylists would ask me how I wanted my hair cut. How should I know? I don't understand the shape of my face, or my skull, or how my hair grows. I wished for an expert who would know what would look best on me - and he exists! I was finally blessed with meeting Joseph. Now I can relax and know that my hair will always look fantastic. I have delegated the responsibility for my tresses to the Master.

Pros: Eclectic interior design, great music, royalty treatment! Close to public transportation:)

After fighting with my curls for 20-something years, I've finally found someone who can make them manageable and even enjoyable. Joseph performs magic on my hair and then doesn't try to blow-dry it straight after cutting it like every other hairdresser on earth. Living in OH now, I try to schedule my haircuts when I'm visiting Philadelphia just so Joseph can cut it....not always easy, but definitely worth the wait.

Pros: love my hair when i leave

Cons: hard to find parking in center city, but worth the hassle

.

Joseph is certainly talented and has the ability to cut hair very well. As I was waiting for my hair cut, I was watching him cut the hair of the woman before me. Her hair looked gorgeous!! Having heard that you'll either love him or hate him, I thought the people who wrote bad reviews just hated his eccentric personality. I always thought who cares about his personality if he can give you a great hair cut?!?!! So I gave him a shot. \r
\r
Although talented, unfortunately for me, I wasn't really satisfied with my pricey hair cut. I have curly hair. And I think he cut mine as if it was straight hair (typical). I didn't want length taken off, and it was (I'm still heart broken, because ANYONE WITH CURLY HAIR KNOWS that it takes FOREVER to grow long!) And the ""cut"" was not for me. \r
\r
Joseph is actually a nice guy and talented. But the problem with him and other stylists who think they're great is that they don't listen to you. I've known my hair for 20+ years and if anyone knows the most about my hair...it's ME and not someone who's seen it for 10minutes. I don't deny that he has skills, but what good are his skills if they can't be used in the way that satisfies me. \r
\r
I started going to hair cutters that are cheaper, less full of themselves, and who listen. Hope this helped.

Thought I would spend some extra money on a hair cut for the holidays. Looked at the reveiws and believed that this would be the place. I should have listened to the negative reviews. Joseph thinks he is god of hair.\r
Way too long for a cut, expensive, and he is not a pleasant person. My hair looked ok but when I went to my normal hair dresser I was embarassed when she showed me how uneven the cut was. She helped me out.\r
Don't waste your money and time. I have since talked to others who have been lured in by his success and all of them never went back and agreed with my review.\r

My experiance was the worst nightmare yet.. To start this jacka@# greets me with a bright red polyester shirt unbuttoned down to his navel ,with long grey and black fur on display for the unfortunate world. The bright blue pants he wore were so tight ,thank god he didnt have much to strut in that department. . His face was dry and wrinkled and in need of moisture, He was a cross between the love child of Gene Simons and King Friday . His hair was from a 80s metal hair band [ too old to rock and roll! ]He spoke to me as though he was a god in his own mind ,pretentious and obnoxious was the attitude from the get go. He was twenty five minutes late \r
to start . He said the best you must wait for[ dont make me sick!] He claimed his talent and professed that all the citys hairdressers stunk and he was the only one who could cut hair. It took three hours of ranting and drunk rambling on and on about nothing. He smelled of booze and cheap cologne. He had more cheap jewlery on i thought he was the brother of Mr. T .The hair cut was the worst mess i have ever seen,so uneven .I had to ask what was with this ,his response all art has flaws. I just looked at him and could not believe what a crock of - - - - he was. Run from him , The fact he is the only one who works in the salon tells us all that he is the only person who could stand being around him is himself..

I had a haircut with Joseph in September, 2007 and was waiting until now to write. I did want to add to the many reviews that I had definitely read before going to see him. Like many others, I was curious as I also have had years of bad hair cuts and wasn't sure that he could make a difference in my VERY curly hair. Well, I am here to say that my hair is really awesome. Total strangers keep telling me how wonderful and beautiful my hair is. And, on top of that, what I learned from Joseph now takes me less time to do each morning compared to what I used to do before. Thank you, Joseph. And I will be returning!

Cons: None I can think of.

Joseph saw me eyeing the reveiws in the salon window and beckoned me in. I had just had another disappointing cut and figured no one was ever going to get it right. well Joseph got it in One! I have had weeks and weeks of strangers and friends coming up to me and saying things like I love your hair or your hair is to die for. One said she wanted my hair, I could have something else wonderful but she wanted mine1No one ever wanted my hair.Most were glad it wasnt theirs. I have gone three months and the raves continue. I live in Texas and will be back in the new year for another cut. Thanks Joseph.

I'm not going to try to bash the person or the attitude; all of that is out here. The simple fact is, I left my Ouidad stylist behind when I moved to Philly. Until I met him (and the Ouidad carving/shaping technique), my hair was enormous. Ouidad gave me beautiful shape, and for the first time in my life, reduced the bulk and totally modernized it.\r
\r
I went to Signatures after reading the reviews prepared to let Joseph give me the attitude, blah blah. The fact is, he was very nice and told me my hair was beautiful. He spent almost 2 hours on my hair. Now it's time to get my hair cut again, and I find that I'm not thrilled about returning to Signatures. Here's my basic critique:\r
\r
1. It shouldn't take 1.5 to 2 hours in an uncomfortable chair to get a haircut. If a stylist takes that long -- no matter what the condition of the hair -- it's overkill. A good stylist learns how to give beautiful cuts without hovering over you snipping every single lock -- it indicates a lack of technique and an improvisational style. Some like that and call it ""artistic."" I call it ""inconsistent."" (Not to mention that I got home and realized my hair was asymmetrical in length in front of my right vs. left ears. Come on!)\r
\r
2. He likes length and doesn't reduce bulk. My hair never looked so good once Ouidad started ""carving and shaping."" Now it's getting overgrown and ""fat"" again, and I know Joseph won't be the one to remedy that because of his penchant for preserving the length without internal layering.\r
\r
3. Too much pressure to review him/vote for him as ""best of. "" And I didn't enjoy being pressured to write something cute and witty in his ""guest album."" Let it rest, already.\r
\r
So what can I say? I'm going to go all the way to NY to have my hair cut at Ouidad. Too bad, but I want my thick hair to be manageable again.

Pros: Great cut

I have medium curly hair that when cut wrong is frizzy and unappealing. Before I found Joseph I'd had a string of bad cuts from different hair stylists (5+ years of bad hair!) I'd been convinced I had to wear my hair short because otherwise the curls disappeared. Joseph restored my curls and has convinced me to grow my hair out, which I love. I've been going for a year now and I'm totally committed to Joseph. I don't even live in Philadelphia anymore, I live in NYC but I don't want to go to anyone else!\r
\r
Also, Joseph is very accomodating about fitting me in to his schedule when I come to Philadelphia.\r
\r
In short, for curly hair, Joseph is a miracle worker.

I don't know what people are talking about in some of these reviews. When I walked in to Joseph's, I had a terrible cut that made my hair flat and lifeless, but when I left my hair had been transformed into a head of glossy curls. The decor of the salon is funky and well decorated and the music is upbeat and energizing. Joseph is a fabulously talented professional, and if he is a bit bossy, it's only because he knows what's best for your hair. I am now a loyal customer!

After reading some of the reviews in anticipation of making my second appointment with Joseph I am convinced that their are a lot of really big babies out there who expect to not pay for a good cut that will last for darn near a year and expect the stylist to turn into their best friend. I was in Philadelphia a year ago with my husband on business (we live in Los Angeles) not a bit happy with my haircut and discovered an article in a magazine about Joseph and decided my hair could not get any worse so made an appointment. For the last ten months I have had killer curly hair! That is the longest I have ever been able to go without a cut. People who complain about spending $100 on a great cut ought to live in L.A. and spend on an average of $200! If you want a stylist you can tell how to cut your hair go to someone else. If you want to trust someone to give you the cut that best suits your face and hair than Joseph is the one. And yes he tells it as he sees it. Whether you like it or not. He is brilliant and excentric but he is also a wizard with curly hair. And that is why I would wait and fly clear across the country to get a haircut from him! And I still happily use the products he recomended...

Joseph knows his craft, and is beyond meticulous! He literally spent 1.5 hours cutting/styling my hair, and when I left his salon, my hair looked like the curly-hair tresses on the pictures in the salon. Joseph is a little hard to read, but rest assured, he knows hair, and will make the most of whatever hair you have. After he cut my hair, a ""bad hair day"" now, is better than my best hair days before he cut my hair! Trust Joseph with your hair; he has magic in his scissors and his hands!!!

Geez, Joseph, you really invoke some emotion in these reviews. You know me -- you've been after me to write this darned review forever. Now you can get off my back! For more than 25 years, you've cut my curly hair, and I've listened to your stories and you to mine. Most of those early years, I was quiet. That artiste in you was daunting and I didn't even dare suggest you do anything to my hair. Finally, I think I suggested ""How would I look with bangs?"" and after you got up off the floor from sheer shock, you started having fun with my locks ever since. Your love affair with hair is well documented in these reviews; it's a shame hair doesn't talk, for that's where we would really hear some stuff. You definitely know hair -- you're well trained, and you are absoutely one of the best at what you do. Or I would not still come to you through all of these years and at these prices. My hair is in fantastic shape because of how you have treated it year after year after year. I get compliments over and over on how nice it looks and I grew up absolutely HATING my curly hair; now, other women envy it. Are you hard to deal with some days? Sure. But, aren't we all? I am. In your business, you have to be ""on"" all of the time, and frankly, after all of these years, I can see why you have chucked all of the pretense and are just being real. Bottom line is, do I like my haircut? Is my hair healthy? Is it worth the commute to your shop? Are your hands still steady with those scissors? Can I get an appointment when I need it? And frankly, you HAVE listened to me when I needed you to. It just took me a few years to figure out what I wanted to say that you didn't already know. :-)

Pros: Joe's the pro, but he may not take time to sugar coat or spare your feelings

Cons: He will take time to fuss with your tresses & earn that fee, so don't try to rush him

Wow, that title sounds like something Joseph would say, but no...I did. I went to Joseph for the first time a few months ago and I have to tell you that after so long my hair is finally growing again! I've never in my life had a better hair cut and I have Joseph to thank. He wants you to have the healthiest and most beautiful hair you can have and if you get scolded for mistreating your gorgeous curls, well, I believe we all deserve it! So if you deserve to be spanked for not pampering your locks, stop what you're doing, call Joseph and tell him you need his guidance and whatever you do, just shut up and listen to the King of Curls! I hope that Joseph will be able to see me again before I leave for Paris!

He doesn't listen to what customers want for their hair. I've had MY hair for thirty years and I know what to do with it. However, he thought he knew better (he has an ego that is not good for his business).\r
He doesn't know my hair better than I do.\r

Funny thing, he kind of convinced me he did and I was willing to forgive him for not styling it the way I wanted because I was willing to go home and restyle it. Then I found the first stylist who listened to me at the Chop Shop!! That's when I realised I should not have to compromise or go home and FIX what a stylist did to my hair. My desire for my hair should be respected when I am paying for a service.... ESPECIALLY paying the price that Joseph is asking.\r
Skip this salon. Just go to the Chop Shop instead (I'd tell you my stylist there, but I don't want to share her ;-)

I got my haircut on Tuesday for the first time by Joseph despite the mixed reviews on this site. Immediately when I met Joseph i felt welcomed and excited. I could sense his confidence in his ability to give me a great cut. I let him do what he wanted, and 2 and a half hours later i was leaving the salon with the best cut I've ever gotten, undoubtedly. This is the first time in my life that i have vowed to never let anyone else touch my hair. Joseph has definitely roped me in as a loyal client. \r

Also, Joseph is easy to talk to. He's very intelligent and engages in thought provoking discussion. He's cultured, and very good at socializing. The silences while he was cutting were never awkward. \r

Thank you Joseph for introducing me to what the salon experience should be.

Yesterday I had my hair cut by Joseph for the first time. Wow! I am so impressed with the cut; my curly hair looks better than ever. The times that I can walk out of a salon and feel good about the way my hair looks are few and far between; Joseph accomplished this on my very first visit. I live west of the city, so the location for me is not the best, however, it's worth the drive.

I recently used Joeseph to do the hair for a national tv show that I work on. He was great and when we were in a pinch, he let us shoot in his salon when our location didnt work out. A true gentleman.
