I am new to the area and have been looking for a competent stylist since I've been here, to no avail. After reading the rave reviews for Something New, I decided to try it out. I have to be honest. I have never been this disappointed by a stylist-EVER. I sincerely hope that all of the prior reviews were posted by actual satisfied customers, but they seem very suspect, because the atmosphere of the salon was completely different than described.
My experience went as follows...
1. The stylist was pleasant.
2. When I got there, they took me right away.
3. The shampoo girl did a good job.
4. They got me out fast.
5. It was cheap (comparatively).
1-10. My hair looks awful, and not at all like the picture I showed her.
More specifically, I got a relaxer and my hair is NOT straight. She put a bunch of product on my hair that is weighing it down, ugh. I showed her a picture of a layered, feathered style, and I have something like tight back-swept curls all over my head. The fact that it was cheap and fast truly is made evident by the way my hair looks. It is not even neatly done, as if it was done with no care at all. Ultimately, I would much rather have spent the extra money (and time) going to someone who could do what I ask for.
