AWFUL HAIRCUT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
I would give ZERO stars if I could. The worst haircut ever by Kristin Dariotis-Clift and then THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER by the owner Trena Giddens. Kristin messed up my hair so bad (i even went back once to have her fix it and she was preoccupied by her boyfriend who seemed annoyed and wanted to leave) that I had to leave their salon and drive to another one to have them fix it. My mid-back hair that just needed shape ended up over my shoulders. AND I HAVE CURLY HAIR. I called the salon a few times for a refund and Trena, the owner, has never once taken my call or called me back. I also reported them to the Better Business Bureau. Do not go here. They do not care about their clients. Kristin Dariotis-Clift is not good at doing curly hair. I don't know how she got Deva Certified.
After I moved to Tallahassee my curls decided to be non-existent. I was desperately looking for a curl stylist in the area until I found Awaken514 through this site. My hair was style by Chelsea. She is very nice and knowledgeable. She walked me through the entired process. I am very happy with the results and thanks to Chelsea’s walkthrough I am able to maintain the results at home. I will definitely come back.
My Curls are BACK!!
When desperation led me to get a regular cut — my curls disappeared. After debating whether or not to travel 1 1/2 hrs for a cut - I gave in. Made an appointment at Awaken and had an amazing cut and color with Erin! The appointment started with a consultation on what I wanted in terms of color and cut. The entire staff works as a team to help you achieve the look you want. After a through conversation about my hair we started with the Devacut followed by color and I will say I am totally in love with my hair again! Thank You Erin, Trena, and all that helped to make my disaster hair lovely again! I’ve booked a maintenance appointment and can’t wait to go back!
The women at Awaken are wonderful, kind people, who know how to cut curly hair! The atmosphere is laid-back (but still professional), and I never felt uncomfortable or awkward (which, as someone who frequently feels both of those things, is a feat). Crystal has given me my favorite hair cuts of my life, that look great immediately, are (relatively -- my hair is still curly) easy to style, and don't look funny as they grow out. When I've been, I've found everyone listens really well, and is super courteous and respectful. I'm not one to tell other people to go to this store or that store, but I have talked a few of my curly friends into going to this salon because they have changed my life. Getting a hair cut isn't playing russian roulette anymore, and I don't feel self-conscious about my hair. I cannot imagine a better experience, and I am so grateful to these ladies.
I chose to go to Awaken514 upon learning they had Deva trained stylists. When I called to book my appointment the receptionist was very knowledgeable about informed me about the process of a Devacut. It was recommended that I see Kristin and I could not be happier! She took the time to talk with me about what I was looking for in my haircut and understood that I was looking to keep my shape while also wanting to grow out my hair. Kristin was knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable with the cut and type of Deva products she would be using on my hair. I am pleased that Kristin gave me the cut and shape that I asked for while still being able to maintain the length of my hair. I am fully in love with my hair and will definitely be back to see Kristin again in the future!
I have been going to Impressions and Trena since I moved to Tallahassee! Prior to that time I had read the Curly Girl book and was on my own as far as taking care of my curly hair. Thank goodness I found Trena and her salon! The staff is fantastic, the service amazing and they are constantly learning and sharing new things in the world of curly hair! The stylists are excellent listeners and they are truly hair professionals that pursue their work as an evolving art form. Appreciate them so much...
