Best salon – I have been going to Chris for years and have followed her from salon to salon and was so happy when she opened her own. Chris really takes the time to listen to what I am looking for and always suggests whats best for me. I never have to worry, because I am always happy when I leave. I love how the girls dress and seeing the trends they wear and how they each express themselves. The salon is small but I really love that when I walk in I am greeted by everyone, as opposed to other places she worked where no one knew who I was. Highly reccommended, They really are the most skilled in the area.
Fabulous Haircut - Updated 5/2011 – 3/2009: After having my hair butchered at a local spa, I had a consultation & then haircut and color with Amanda at Stilleto. She was honest about color (I was flip-flopping between 2 choices) and listened to what I wanted to end up with ... and this is the best part - actually did it!
I am VERY impressed with how the cut was done. She kept the length (I was growing it out) and the cut was done in a way that flattered my wavy hair. The price was the same that I've paid just about everywhere here.
I had been going to Stiletto for all of my hair needs through 2009/2010. In 2010, I moved & just came back to the area recently.
I am sad to say that the quality of haircut service has gone down while price has gone up. I don't know if Amanda is overbooked or what, but it seemed rushed the last two times I visited. I told her that the last cut didn't seem to be right, but she didn't address my concerns. I could tell something was off in the newest cut, and when I went to another stylist to get it touched up a few weeks later, he immediately noticed that the layers weren't even. To add to my dissatisfaction, I had made an appointment to change my color at Stiletto, and yes, I forgot to call and cancel, which is impolite of me (though if there had been a reminder call, I would've canceled then), and she called to see if I was going to come in or wanted to reschedule.. when I said that I wasn't going to reschedule at this time, she hung up on me!
So, I am giving Stilleto a "3". I had a 5-star first experience in 2009, but a 2-star experience in 2011. I won't be going back.
