I would niot recommend anyone to come here. I needed a style done for a 60's party which I showed a picture to the stylist of a small beehive and hair half up and the rest down curled at the ends. It took 30 minutes and I was not overly impressed. They used straightners to do the curls at the end so of course it lasted less than a hour. It would have been better to use rollers or curlers on the ends. There was very little conversation or service from the stylist. Being in the mall it appears to be very busy but that could be due to the location not regular clients. I was charged $75 which I think was way overpriced, at the counter the guy asked the stylist how much to charge which she replied she didn't know and it seemed like he just came up with an overpriced rate.
I got a cut and colour here and it was a real cheap deal. I was very impressed with the cut I received and the service wasn't that great either as I was left waiting whilst they just chatted amongst themselves.
Karen colours, cuts and straightens my hair. The price won't scare you off either. Karen did my hair for my wedding from a photo and it looked totally amazing.The comments I received were so awesome! I now have two friends who are going to switch to Karen! I totally recommend her to everyone out there. And, they also thread eyebrows too, which is quick and painless and a fantastic price. Go Karen and go Kess!
Really sorry to hear about your bad experience but my husband has been coming here now for quite some time and they are always polite and very good at what they do ensuring they do what is asked of them. No, they don't make a lot of conversation as you can appreciate they are often from another Asian country but they are always friendly.
I have witnessed others having their haircut here and they always look good and the customers are very happy with the outcome.
Before my haircut I asked for a quote. Happy with the price and the hairdresser's immediate availability, I decided to have a haircut here. I showed the hair dresser a photo. She looked at it once. The photo was a long layered locks with framing around the face a layered rounded fringe. What I got was something rather odd resembling an uneven super short bowl cut fringe with lack of face framing or layering and a blunt cut back. The hairdresser had next to no customer service skills barely talking to me during the process or checking with me as she cut. I wear glasses, so had them off while she was cutting. When I put the glasses back on I was shocked and on the verge if tears (I start a new job next week!). The hairdresser had obviously rushed the job to finish her day. She then used a straightener (without heat protectant!) to try and show me the 'layers'. When I protested the use of such high heat on my hair the hairdresser applied oil directly onto my roots. I could hear the sizzle. I also got my forehead burnt.
I didn't know what to say and was scared if making a scene with other customers there. I was then charged MORE than I was quoted. Feeling embarrassed I paid and quickly left.
Upon trying to tie up my hair I realised how bad it was. My boyfriend and mother's honest appraisal supported my shock at how bad it looked.
I ended up having to waste time going back, waiting another 45 mins, paying for extra parking to try and get it fixed. No refund was offered fir my unqiuely appalling experience. To Kess's credit a different stylist attempted to semi salvage the damage done (hence the once star instead of half). But I still look ridiculous ready for my new job next week -far for the new professional look I was going for. Moral of the story?
DON'T COME HERE. GO TO A REAL CERTIFIED SALON!!!
