Love the "dry" cut on my wavy hair! – James, the salon owner, is a master at cutting my wavy hair. He doesn't wash/wet it before he cuts...he just brushes it out, and cuts it when it is dry, so that he can see the way my hair bends when it is dry. Frankly, people SEE your hair when it is dry, so it makes sense to cut it when it is dry. That way, James can tell how it is going to look as he is cutting it. I'm kind of "cheap" when it comes to spending money on beauty, but I'm willing to pay the extra price to have James cut my hair. He also does my color very well too. Over the many years of my coming to see him, he's become a good friend, as well, and we always have interesting conversations. As one of the other reviewers said, the salon is a bit "quirky" and has a lot of personality, but it can be a bit cluttered at times. But, it is all overlooked because I know that I always walk out with a great haircut, and to me, that is the most important thing.
Celebrity Stylist!!! – James isn't just a hairdresser....he's my celebrity stylist!!! When James is done working his magic I feel like a runway model every time!!! For over 15 years I have traveled from the far corners of the world (Korea, Germany, D.C, Seattle, Middle East) to have James style my precious hairs. The highlight of his performances was on my wedding day in 2006. James arranged hair styling and make up assistance for 17 women while we had a catered breakfast and a professional photography team take over his salon for the morning. He's the best hairdresser I've found worldwide. Call early for your appointment...he books up fast.
Have You Been To James? If Not You Should Go – I highly recommend St. James Place if you are in need of a cut and color and are interested in great conversation. I have been going to James for years and I completely trust his opinion when it comes to styles that would look good on me. He is a very honest man who will provide you a great experience when getting your hair done. If you need a day of pampering, James is the man to go see. Not only can you get your hair done, but he sells make-up, jewelry, purses, scarves...what more could a woman possibly want? I always enjoy the time I spend with James. He is an amazing man and has the ability to make you feel completely beautiful and comfortable.
James doesn't just "do hair" he creates a look, color and texture that frames the face. – They specialize in color. James used a palette of highlights and low lights that work wonders on my skin tones. He waxes my brows and tints and shapes them perfectly. My husband thinks I look great. I love the styles he has put together for me (I do change my mind) and my hair is always easy to care for. As a busy working lady, I deserve to be pampered. Who doesn't?
Incredible experience – This salon is a little quirky, but James, the head stylist, is an extremely experienced and hugely talented person. The atmosphere is somewhat cluttered, but they were very flexible about fitting me in for an appointment and gave me one of the best hair cuts I've ever had. They have great products too.
