Best haircut I've ever received. Samantha took her time - was very knowledgeable. She listened to what I wanted and my hair has never looked healthier and better !
I recently went to Alter Ego for the first time and had Samantha as my stylist. I loved the salon and thought Samantha did a great job working with my hair. She did a cut and balayage color which looked amazing with my natural curls! She was able to educate me on which products work best with my hair type and sold me some great product that helped my curls but reduced the frizz! I will definitely go back and see her again.
I have pros and cons for this salon. I'll start with the pros.ProsThe staff is excellent. They made sure I was comfortable. Samantha was my stylist for my DevaCut. I showed her how I wanted my hair to be styled. She was very attentive and took her time to listen to what I wanted. I love my hair cut.ConsShe did not have any Deva Curl products. She used a product by another company. She was still at the beginner's stage for the DevaCut process. I would give her a higher rate but not having the products and applying what she had to my hair did not work. Later on that night, my hair was dry. I am of ethnic descent. She needs more practice on ethnic hair. She informed me that she is going back for more training. OverallShe did a great job. My rating is a two due to not having the products and she has to work on ethnic hair more. I will say she did a great job with my hair cut. I had bad damaged heat ends. I notice a different with the cut. I truly love it. Will I go back in the future? Yes, when she has the devacurl products and able to apply them to ethnic hair.
