Now I would like to start this off with I am never one to cause a stink or truly get upset about things. Especially when it comes to hair, hair can always be fixed or grow out again. However this experience I believe needs to be shared. I, for the first time decided to get my hair professionally done, I made an appointment for my hair over the phone and explained what I wanted done. Defiantly by no means did I expect them to know what I wanted through a phone conversation, this being said I brought a picture for reference. The idea of my hair at the time was very brassy going in and I wanted to darken my roots and have my hair gradually lighten the closer it got to my ends. The picture I provided, I shared with the hair stylist that I do not expect it to look exactly like the picture but I would ideally like to get to this point. The colour was called a balayage and I also shared that I would like a bit of length taken off due to me having almost a half inch of split ends. The stylist began with taking the entire bottom portion of my hair and covering it in bleach whilst wrapping in in plastic wrap. She then proceeded the process and asking my how many highlights I would like in the top, I then shared with her I would like none of the current colour in my hair to be left behind as it is rather brassy and as time goes on its gets worse. She tells me "ok no problem, what we will do is put a darker colour on your roots and do highlights from there". Not only does she leave strands of my hair untouched but the highlighting job was awful. My highlights on the top were choppy and almost looked pixelated due to how uneven they were. Looking in the mirror I was truly concerned, she shared she would put a toner on top to help even out the tones. So we proceeded over to the sink to tone my hair, 10 minutes later we rinse out the toner and head directly to her station so we could continue with the cut. She then asks me what style I was looking for, I shared I would like to take off almost a half inch (as I stated at the beginning) while doing so just to keep some style can we also blend the trim into a long diagonal bob. Which was doable with my hair with the amount we had to work with and the amount I wished to take off! She plays with my hair for a second and looks at me and says "awe that will take off most of the work we just did. "

At this point I am so over this visit, I am not happy with the colour of my hair, I just want to leave and never return. She keeps asking if I like it, I just nod and smile politley. She proceeds to trim off MAYBE a cm of hair, still leaving not only the older split ends but now the NEW damage, completes the look with a blow dry. She calls over one of the salon owners and say "look! She looks great right? I know the toner kinda grabbed and made it look a little blue, but that should wash out". My heart sank at this point because the lighting in the salon is rather yellow and I never even noticed that my hair had a blue tinge.

Finally I am finished get up off the chair head over to the cash desk and pay for the service still leaving a tip. The receptionist asks me to show her my hair, I do a little twirl and head on with my day.

As I come home my fiance greets me and says" Hey! you dyed your hair blue? " Sure enough I head to our bathroom and my hair is blue where it should be the most blonde. I remember the stylist saying that if I was it out it should correct itself. So I was a little strand of my hair and no change. I called the salon back and the receptionist says to me " darling say no more I noticed a few problems when you left us" She tells me to come back in the following day and they will fix it all.
Longer story much shorter.... My hair was bleached twice more, and bleach washed. They Chemically fried and damaged my hair, their trash bin was full of my breakage, leaving me to then lose more of my hair later in the shower and having to get it all cut off into a very short haircut just to get a brush though it.
The receptionist and staff are incredibly nice, but for future reference do not condone bad dye jobs just because they are an associate of yours.

I want to say thank you so much for the awesome hairdo and makeup you did for my daughter for her prom on May 12, 2012. When she walked in the house I had to take a second look she looked so beautiful I didn't recognize my own daughter. I have never seen a hairdresser do such an amazing job. I will definately let everyone know how wonderful your salon is.

Thank you again Toshas mom
