a sylist who has to TELL vs. show you his talent.... – if you want to feel like absoute crap then go see Donnal.
he gets upset if he finds out another salon charges more than he does and then he bumps up his price....if you are someone that feels that his hideous price must be backed up by talent (and you can brag you go there b/c you can afford it)....go for it....but let me tell you your friends are making fun of your hair...and you look silly...
donnel has no interest in making you feel good....he loves the power you give him to mess with your look....
and if you want color forget that, too....he will not
make anyone blond...he loves to dye everyone's hair black.....
and the salon's decor is faaaarrrr from anything spectacular....helllloooo, the water fountain is sold at any Pier 1!!! give me a break!!! it is all bad '80's!!!
and don't get me started on how he wheels his little chair around from client to client....so no one person has his time....and you end up spending 3 hours of your precious life there when it should have been 1!!!
he is an old arrogant man that TELLS you how great he is rather than shows you!!!! he consistantly berates his employees, as well, making it so freaking tense in there you want to scream just to releave the tension...
and it explains why he is the only stylist in there!!!
trust me...i could go on!!!
Donnal's Hair Studio is the worst in St. Louis!!! – I will never go back to Donnal's Hair Studio. Donnal, the owner has no concept of customer service. He thinks he is the God of everything and everyone should bow down to him.
The studio is nice but reaked of cigarettes. Donnal was rude and arrogant and when I asked for a refund he laughed in my face and said "I have nothing more to say to you, leave my salon"
The Best – As a world traveller, and having lived in several countries and several U.S. I always seek out the best. In St. Louis, Donnal is undoubtedly the best. Maybe, even the best hairdresser.
First of all, his salon is perhaps the best decorated and most comfortable I have ever been in. Donnal spends a lot of time on your first appointment determining your character, personality, lifestyle etc. to better assist him in deciding what is the best hairstyle and color for you.
If you are not prepared to trust him and prefer to insist on your wishes then Donnal is not for you.
Yes, he is expensive but not outrageous and in the long run he is quite reasonable. My base color lasts longer, my highlights last longer and my cut lasts longer.
Editorial Review – Full-service salon provides haircuts, coloring, conditioning and consultations.
Bad Hair Day – I'm still recovering from my haircut a few months ago. He's too expensive, does not listen, makes you wait. Bad, bad, bad. There are many local places way better and way cheaper. Don't waste your time or money
Only one hair stylist in a BIG place. – If you think $190 per hour is too much to be charged by a lawyer, then you might in shock when you go to Donnal's for a hair cut. At least I know the lawer has to go to College and then Law School. Donnal is good at what he does, but I certainly will shop around St. Louis to look for alternatives. I just think that one has to be reasonable. Every one has the right to make money, but I think you have to be reasonable. Any thing less just reveal his true self (despite his sweet talk). Life is too short to deal with injustice.
