Professional, competent, and oozing style! – It is important to understand that when you visit professionals there is a certain level of professionalism expected of you, the client. I know this, and yet I walked in to my first appointment 16 minutes late. I was on break from the middle of my third back to back 18 hour shift at work. I looked as haggard as I felt, and I've never asked anyone to work with my hair when it was in such a state. I don't imagine that I smelled or anything like that... but if *I* had been my stylist, I'd have had a hard time suppressing my disdain.
I walked in, and the attendant at the counter accepted my apology for tardiness with a patient smile and directed me to my stylist, Gabriel. The music was tight, the place was immaculately clean and visually impressive. There was ZERO clutter around the chairs, and a minimalist's sense of style pervaded. Gabriel took my jacket and hung it up smartly, and then held the chair for me as I sat down. He asked me what I wanted to do, described it back to me in his own words, and nodded. He then directed me to the back of the shop so he could wash my hair.
I lay on my back on a long (I'm 6'3" and had room to spare) padded black vinyl table. Gabriel carefully positioned a warm towel under my neck, preventing any chill from the lip of the sink. He washed my hair thoroughly and carefully, without a splash or a careless drip. I nearly fell asleep on the table.
We then moved back to his station, and I had a look at the other customers and the two apprentice stylists. The latter were listening and watching their instructor intently as she worked on a client: I doubt they even registered my presence as I passed. Two absolutely gorgeous women were smiling into the mirrors and chatting with their stylists. They were clearly enjoying themselves, and approved of what they saw taking shape in the mirrors. All of this set me at ease a great deal.
Gabriel got to work quickly, and we talked about everything from his shoes (and man, they were some nice shoes...) to bespoke tailoring to... well, the conversation covered a lot of ground. Gabriel knew exactly what he was doing, holding up his end of the conversation without allowing himself a moment's distraction from the task at hand. I got the impression that if I hadn't provided specific instructions it would have been okay just letting him have his reign. I can't remember the last time I got such a strong vibe of professionalism and competence from someone.
I walked out an hour later feeling completely restored. I'd entered the shop late, irritated, tired, and looking every bit of it. My longish hair was poorly cut the last time it saw scissors, and I'd fried the hell out of it coloring it fire-engine red for the last couple of years. I left not knowing what to do with all the obviously sincere compliments I received on my appearance. When I got back to work and my goons even commented favorably, I knew Gabriel had done a superior job.
Kudos, Live Hair Group! I'll be back, that is for damn sure. I'll send anyone your way that will lend me an ear.
Beauty Salon – Robert doesnt talk much when he cuts hair and if you stare at him, it just looks like he's in the zone. You dont say anything out of respect for the hair guru so he can focus. That doesn't bother me because I could care less if my stylist talk or not.
Best Hair Salon in Dallas – I can not say enough about Live Hair Group. I have very naturally curly hair and it kept turning orange when I had a hairdresser color it. Robert and the rest of the staff took their time figuring out the best solution to my orange hair problem and fixed it. I also have had two wonderful cuts. I don't think I will ever go anyplace else.
