Looks like you had a bad experience Matt. I've worked with the owner and have had my hair done at both 18 | 8 stores in Irvine. So far I've had nothing but great results. Looks like you had a one time bad cut with a fairly new girl. 18 | 8 is by far the best place for everything from mens nail and feet grooming to beards, hair, coloring, facials, massages, and a lot more. The spectrum store is only 5 months old as of this month 09-2008 and the girls are new. Give it another try and lets hope you can experience some other items. I don't work for the store. I just love to work with the girls and I always ask for a girl with no less than 300 hours of experience. You had ONE bad experience.. try them out again and make sure you're more precise when you say "short" on the top. Try saying use a 1, a 2 or 3 clipper guide.. or give a measurement.. 1/4" 1/3" etc etc... saying "short" leaves little room for her to work be creative with. What I can guarantee is that your new barber won't do feet or nails much less "style" your haircut. Barbers are for the basics. Plus.. they all speak english.. no asians chicks gawking at you in an unfamiliar language while clipping those man claws you call nails. haha.

Pros: Great haircut, hot stylist, great atmosphere, great products and hot stylist

I too received a haircut from Cherise. I logged on to City Search to describe my experience and was a little taken back by the way the last reviewer described his experience. Unsatisfied is one thing. It sounds\r
like he had a problem

Pros: Good with last minute appointments.

I made an appointment at this "salon" based on the relatively positive reviews that I saw online, and I could not possibly have had a worse experience.

My "stylist" (Charise?) was inexperienced, and completely butchered my hair. To be fair, things were progressing reasonably until my request that she "cut the top pretty short"... at which point she took clippers and literally shaved a strip down the center of my head to the skin. She then proceeded to attempt to even it out all the while making awkward conversation... as we both knew that she had just completely butchered my hair and that there was very little that she could do to fix it.

Eventually, she decided that we were done, and showed me out. She told the receptionist to charge me for a "buzzcut" instead of a full haircut, as that was what it had eventually become (she literally scribbled out "haircut" on the slip and wrote "buzzcut").

The punchline... I was so freaked out by my *literally* Frankenstein-like appearance that I immediately drove to a 7$ barbershop to have them "fix it". A very understanding guy at Twin Peaks Barbershop actually managed to blend my shaved head into the rest respectably enough that it at least looked more like I made a bad choice of haircut rather than had my head half-shaved by a moron. He was kind enough to joke with me about it without making fun of me. I appreciated that.

I literally had to wear a hat for 2-3 weeks before it grew out enough for me to feel comfortable being seen.

Avoid this place at all costs.
