Very unhappy – After wearing my hair in the same basic style for the past 20 years, I was looking for a new style. I brought a page from GQ to show the stylist what I was looking for - I normally get my hair cut every 2 weeks and had let it grow for 6. My new wife works in Norfolk and had heard great things about mens cuts at this salon - she made the appt and reluctantly I agreed and left the beach for my appt. I was not facing the mirror as she cut and when she turned me around I was shocked to see my "military" type haircut! I couldn't believe it - it was nothing like I asked for or that we discussed. It was so short that I had to let it grow for 6 more weeks before I had enough hair to go back to my old place and return to my same tired style. It was a hugh disappointment for my wife and I and I would never even consider going back!
Great place to go if you want a super-short haircut – I had written a review previously, and have since gone back for my second visit. In my last review I gave them 3 stars because the salon is nice, the colorist did a good job, but the stylist gave me a super-short cut that looked nothing like the picture I brought in.
I thought it might have been my fault, because the picture was black and white and maybe she couldn't see it that well. I let my hair grow out for 3 months and, not wanting to take any chances, asked for a "senior stylist". This time I brought six pictures, and instructions from the website where I got the pictures. Not only did the stylist not follow the instructions, but the cut does look like the pictures!!! I'm so upset. Not once, but twice, and two different stylists - and BOTH times I left with a cut much shorter than what I requested. I even said "Please don't cut my hair super short - I want the length."
I don't know if the stylists here think they know what you want better than you do, or if they just don't pay attention, but that is the last time I will go. I can't believe I gave it another shot - only to end up with yet another super-short cut.
If super-short is your thing - then I recommend it. If you want your hair to touch your shoulders or longer - go somewhere else.
Not worth the money. – I decided to get a hair cut here after reading the reviews and I wish I hadn't. To spend the kind of money that this place charges on a hair cut you would expect a decent level of customer service. I was made to feel more like I was intruding on my stylist's time and she said maybe three sentences to me through the whole process. This is the most I've ever spent for a cut and the least attentive stylist I've ever had, which is not a combination that makes me want to come back. The cut itself came out fine but my hair is long and the cut is simple so it wasn't that challenging.

Urban Cool Classy salon – This salon is great - the staff is friendly and professional, from the front desk to the hair washing, al the way to the haircut! Patty cut my hair and gave me great advice on color. I live in the neighborhood and tried it on a whim. I am very happy with my cut, my style, and will absolutely return in the future. How lucky for me it is so convenient!
Best Salon EVER! – Love it! Love it! The staff is wonderful and very experienced. I have been going there for years and would never leave! Highly recommended.
Great salon – I like the way the salon is departmentalized. The hair cutters were great, the colorists were polite and professional, and I even managed to get in a massage.
Worst colorist ever – I went here without having someone recommend it first, which is usually not a good idea, but I thought since they carried Kerastase products and seemed fairly busy, that it must be good. I was so wrong. I got an ok haircut, but Jill butchered my color. I asked for natural caramel highlights. What I got was bright yellow streaks and a 3 inch orange chemical burn horizontal across the highlights. Now $200 later I have to go and have it fixed, although the chemical damage to my hair has been done. I do NOT recommend this salon to anyone. Hair Cuttery would be a better option to the hack job I received.
User review by cbvbritt – Angelo Mesisco is by far the best place to have your hair cut or colored in the Hampton Roads. No place I have visited even comes close. The colorists are especially able.
