Review for JUSTIN-I am a platinum bleach blonde with long hair and hot pink tips. You can ONLY imagine the kind of damage that can do to your locks. On top of the abuse I do to my mane, I spent 2 weeks at the beach flinting around in the ocean like I was a mermaid. When it was time to return from my fairytale life and come back to Tejas, I took one look in the mirror and realized that my pink had faded almost completely, my blonde was fried and my hair was in complete shambles.I am BEYOND picky about my hair and usually just do it myself (so that I can't wish ill upon others who mess it up) but this was beyond what I could repair. The roots were even like 2" long and I looked like a lot lizard instead of the hot mermaid that I thought I did. It was horrific. So I put on a Rangers cap and called Rock N Roll Hair.Justin was able to get me in immediately. I made the appointment for an ombre 'do. When I got there, he TRIED to run his fingers through my hair... no dice. His eyes were wide and shocked (probably disgusted) at the immense damage I had done. I told him what I wanted and he very kindly and gently said, "no way!" He could read me like a book and could tell that I would be sorely disappointed going from platinum to adding so much brown. He recommended a subtle transition with lowlights and to soften up the blonde. I just took his advice and rolled with it.The mocha didn't take like we had hoped because the bleach on my hair just ate it up. It was so porous. As he was TRYING to brush my hair, it was so damaged (on my account) that it got tangled and lost in his brush. He recommended that we trim the ends to bring it back to a healthy level. I admit, I cried. I have been growing my hair out for 3 years. It has never been this long, but what's the point in having long unhealthy hair?! He was so sweet and so reassuring through the whole process. He calmed me down and made me feel so much better about it. He trimmed my hair and it looked sooooo much better.I went back today (a week later) to add the mocha lowlights and he did such an amazing job!He is such an artist! He is quick and fluid! I was so happy that I gave him a huge hug (totally freaked him out! hahaha) and left with the biggest smile on my face! He also does the BEST blow dry and style. Seriously, Justin is the best. I love him and totally recommend him. I had to sign up for YELP just to recommend him! <3 He's awesome!!!Thanks, Justin, for making me feel pretty again!!!
I've had a lot of bad hair experiences in my life time, to the point were I just couldn't stand walking into a salon to get it done. I was pretty nervous since it'd been over a year for a decent cut, and I was afraid I'd have a lot of unanswered questions as per-usual. After making a few phone calls to another salon downtown, with no call backs or even take the time to answer the phone, I figured I'd give Bee's Knee's a try. When I walked in, I was greated with a smile and asked if I wanted a beverage. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. Upon getting my cup of coffee, I met Sarah. She was pure delight. I had a general idea of what I wanted, she made it crystal clear what would work. I asked my usual questions and now I feel I have all the answers for styles and cuts that would work. It's not like any other salon I've been to, and it was well worth the wait and courage to try. Hands down, I will direct anyone looking for a friendly staff and cute atmosphere to go give Bee's Knee's a try. I will definately be back again. This is my go to!
Congratulations!! to Terry and Salon Purple. Terry has been a Master Stylist for several years. He worked at a fabulous salon in the area and had so many clients, he had to do some at home! Opening his own salon was the natural progession in his line of success. Terry is a wonderful Christian person with a Fantastic family! He has been my stylist for about 10 years. I will never go anywhere else. Terry does a wonderful job cutting and coloring my hair exactly how I want it. He is extremely knowledgable about what he does, and is up to date with the latest trends and techniques. Terry is a great listener. He is interested in giving you precisely what you want, and will work with you until you are satisfied. I have 2 teen boys and he does their hair, as well. They, too, are always satisfied with their cut ( and you know how kids can be about their hair). The salon is beautiful and inviting and so are the people! The best salon in the metroplex by far!!
Today was my first visit to the Bee's Knees and let me just tell you- the name fits! This place is great. The receptionist is extremely helpful and friendly. The salon is easy to find, clean, and hip without being pretentious. My stylist was Mandy and she was THE BOMB.COM. Seriously- I got a scalp and shoulder massage, the best shampoo of my entire life (trust me... they do this thing with a hot water towel to seal in the conditioner and it is REDUNK!), a super sexy bob haircut (with lots of options for different sytles), and she's super fun to talk to. She even showed me how to do a proper Victory Roll- which I didn't think would even be possible with a bob! So great!
I have gone in this Talbots pretty much every year. My mother loves their clothes and I get her something there almost every Christmas. Sadly, the service I get going in there by myself or with my sister, and with mother is a total 180. I am in my twenties, dress nice, and act respectful - but the amount of dirty looks I receive is crazy! It's like they want me out of their store as quickly as possible. I gave them two stars because they are almost always able to get what I'm looking for, but judgmental beyond belief.
