Talented stylists – Mechelle is a true talent. Any age. Any hair type. She will make you look your best, and you will enjoy interesting and entertaining conversation in the process.
MECHELLE IS THE BEST HAIR STYLIST EVER – Mechelle is without a doubt the best hair stylist I have ever been to. She is one of those rare stylists that is excellent with both cut and color. She immediately puts her clients at ease and is extremely easy to talk to. She doesn't try to push products or services; however, if asked for advice, she will gladly make a recommendation.
The Purple Door is located in an old house on St. Mary's Street that is loaded with charm and character. It is extremely comfortable and welcoming. The other stylists, Michael and Cody, are also fun, friendly and talented.
beware of scam artist – Beware of woman with first name of Susan... when she called to book the appointment, she was trying to find a way to get services at a reduced rate. When she came in for service, she acted very neurotic and secretive. Would not engage in normal conversation. Then she started attacking the stylist, saying this was the worst experience she had ever had at a salon. The stylist attempted to do what ever possible to make it the best of the situation. The stylist was guilty of not having enough conversation during the consultation to fully understand the desire of the client. He was foiling her hair, and she started attacking him, he grew defensive as she would not listen to him, and he assured her he could add more foils to add more color on top and around the face. He also told her he leaned on the conservative side with new clients. He did as he said and added more foils on the top to brighten the color. The entire time she attacked him, asking if he an alcohol problem because he was shaking. The stylist has a genetic, neurological disorder that causes a tremor, and when he is nervous it is enhanced. She continued by asking him if he had to much to drink the night before. Then she told him he had an anger problem, she continued to push him by asking do you have any friends. He asked her to please stop several times which seemed be an invitation for her to continue with accusations. She liked the color when finished, the stylist did not charge her. He told her he does not charge when it has been a bad experience for the client. She continued to complain and attack the stylist, until she had to be asked to leave the building, and she continued on the porch of the building. All other employees and clients felt it was her intent to get the service for free. Beware of scam artist.
We attempt to make sure each person that comes to our salon has a positive experience.
Great haircut! – I'm not a very girly girl. I don't get manicures or pedicures, I don't wear a lot of makeup, and I absolutely, positively, do not spend a lot of time on my hair in the morning. Which is why I love the cut I got from Michael at the Purple Door on St. Mary's Street. I'm sure you've heard of the mythical "wash 'n go" haircut? The kind that needs no blow-drying, no curling, no hot rollers, no bl**d, sweat, and tears to look good? Well, I got one better from the Purple Door. I wash my hair at night, sleep on it, and then just get up and brush it in the morning and walk out the door looking good! I highly recommend this place. However, book early, especially if you're a working woman. Evening appointments are rare and in high demand here.
Sidenote: why is "bl**d" deemed an inappropriate word by citysearch? Seriously, bl**d is a bad word? WTF?
