Going to So Chic was the worst salon experience I've had in my life. Not only was Kira rude but provided unsanitary and unacceptable service. When I arrived, I asked for a trim and was told she didn't have the time. I sit in the chair expecting her to detangle my hair because I have natural hair. Instead of shampooing my hair and conditioning it. She decided to take a spray bottle and wet my hair and told me that she doesn't shampoo and condition for bridal trials only styles it (mind you I have a wet head at this point so getting up and leaving isn't an option). She then proceeds to blow dry my hair with all my residue from my wash and go (gels and butters) and tells me I need to wash my hair more and that it has an odor. (I'm sitting here like, well obviously I came in expecting a shampoo for my hair). She then told me how she doesn't recommend flat ironing my hair for a desired style because she thinks the humidity would damage it on the wedding day. If she properly shampooed and gave my hair a blow out or silk press it would've had body rather than wetting it with a bottle and blow drying it. I show her he styles I want and she says she thinks brides should be modern and wear their natural (Afro) hair and not wear veils (they're overdone). At this point I'm just really over the appointment and want her to get her hands out of my hair. She then attempts (failure) to put my hair in an up do. I was better off putting it and a pony tail and leaving.If you are looking for any service, I would avoid this salon - especially if you're a bride. She was so negative, rude, unsanitary and provided terrible service. I came in from out of town to have this appointment and now have to get my hair re done. I would not trust Kira with my hair if I were you.
I discovered Escada when I asked a friend whom was the best hair stylist she ever had and she told me about Ronnie. I have been a customer for several years and always have a very positive experience. This is probably the longest I have stayed with the same salon, usually a dissatisfaction with some service makes me not want to return to a salon but I cannot imagine that happening at Escada. I love the color and cut I get and prices are very reasonable. Before Escada, when my hair reached a certain length, the ends would split and I'd have to get it cut shorter, now it is quite long and in good condition. I usually see Bridget or Ronnie although judging by the work of the other stylists, I would not hesitate to see any one of them.
