I originally started to go to Static when I was 12 years old and I had my hair and makeup done for my bat mitzvah. At the time they did a wonderful job and I returned there for many more haircuts that often were perfect. I did, in fact, get my best hair cut in my life there when I was 15.

However, two horror stories have made me never go there again.
Besides being slightly pricey ($60 plus tax and tip for a cut and style), the treatment I received from my hairdresser (Ali) was horrible.

The first occasion was when I was 17 and decided to get my hair cut in the fashionable trend of the straight across bangs. Ali refused to part my hair in the side (which is the only way I wear it), but would only part it in the middle. After cutting my hair in an unflattering style, I told him I didn't like it. He told me I'd get used to it. It was the first and only time I've ever cried over a hair cut. I still was made to pay.

The second harrowing experience was on the day of my prom when I was getting an updo.
I bought a picture of a messy style that I had wanted. When I showed it to Ali he asked me why I had brought this to him when I could have done it myself at home. How rude! Finally we decided he could do what he wanted, but I didn't want it slicked to my head.

Shortly after he had slicked my hair to my head I pointed out that I didn't want it like that, and he spazzed out, pulling out all the work he had already done. I was on a time limit.

At this point I was thoroughly scared. I let him finish off what he was doing and timidly made comments throughout the experience. I paid, and then fixed it when I got home.

The overall salon isn't bad. It's nice looking and hygienic. It's a bit expensive.

However, sometimes the woman who answers the phone is rude, and the overall atmosphere is uncomfortable. The hairdressers are constantly making sexual comments to each other and talking about awkward things that no one should have to hear
(unless they were your friends!).

Overall, I do NOT recommend Static. Find a new place! I am in fact, still searching.

How could someone do that on the day of your prom!? Don't they know that the hair is one of the most important parts of the outfit... And who are they to say that you could do it yourself? That's just rude. You are a paying customer - someone who should be treated with respect and whose demands should be met. I've seen this place but don't think I'll get my haircut there. Thanks for the heads up.

Hmm i'm going to have to agree and disagree on this one. I've never noticed the sexual comments but one thing that REALLY bothers me is when I come in holding a cup of coffee and that guy there asks me if I want something to drink. CLEARLY I already have a drink! I go there for eyebrow waxing (done by Ali's wife...both who own Static) and I love her and she has never messed up my eyebrows once and I've gone to her since I was 12. I'm going to agree with your Ali comments though. I went to him for prom as well and just as he started my hair he had a panic attack and left. I was stranded an hour before prom with a wet mess of hair. After a while like 10 other hairdressers came over and did my hair so it all ended up ok. Also it pricey but not TOO bad. I still continue to go there like every week and I would definitely recommend Annie (Houri) the owner who does waxing/make-up/nails.

It's awful when they won't give you what you want!
