LOVE YOUR CURLS
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Yukiko and her TEAM. My Daughter Lily loves her hair again and we recommend Oly Curl to everyone we know. They are very knowledgeable and supportive to all that walk through their doors. The education that they give you on your specific curl is AMAZING. Now that we have found the CURLY FAMILY there is no going back.
Hacked my long hair.
Brace yourself before going to this place. I never leave a review about a business but this is one exception due to the impact it might have on others in my community. Our looks are part of who we are as people and we should take this very seriously. Please don't be fooled by this place. I have shopped around for a good curly hair stylist for some time now, after some searching I found olycurl on google. I had spent 2 years growing my hair out with some minor trims in the 2 years only to help keep it healthy and growing out long. Having curly hair this takes a painfully long time with the horrible in between stages as I am sure all curly hair people understand. I was ready for a good style for my long hair that looked great and was cut well. So I made an appointment with excitement. Then on the big day my stylist did not listen and follow my very specific instruction on how I did not want my hair cut short. I was open to some length taken off. I requested that no matter what, I had to be able to pull my hair back for work. I even showed her where I wanted the pony tail to sit on the back of my head. I also explained I am a carpenter and having a short haircut would mean a fro. So i explained long enough to pull back or shaved so it didn't get caught on everything. I was very very clear about this. I showed her pictures of how I used to cut my hair short and told her I was totally done with that in my life, my wife loves my long hair and I needed to keep it. Well long story short olycurl is not what they claim to be. They used clippers on my hair and cut off the better part of 12" of length. It will literally take me 1 year or more to get even close to having my hair the way I want it, along with having to put on a hat for work, that I absolutely did not want to do. By the time I realized the stylist was cutting so much off it was to late. I asked while she cut my hair if she remembered I wanted to be able to pull it back and she said yes. It was almost as though she new what I wanted and just cut it the way she wanted it. This whole time I sat in the chair she talked about how good they are and the best artist in cutting curly hair. Well I know this "the one who brags the most knows the least". They had the audacity to say to me when I was leaving, it takes about 2 weeks to appreciate your new hair style. "WHAT"???? Really? The cashier also told me what my price was with a tip!!!! Again, seriously? They also tried to get me to sign some credit card verification form for future use. ???? I question that practice from anyone. I was also called a few days latter and via voicemail asked if they could post pictures of me on there website????? They said my hair looked so good after the cut. What a kick in the gut. I never told them I liked my haircut or was happy. On the contrary, I think they new I disliked it and was very disappointed. They said absolutely nothing to make it better. Not that they could. They said my hair was so much better than when I came in, well of course it was. They request you come in with nothing in your hair and washed the day before. You come in with bed head, and frizz, naturally anything would be better than bed head and frizz. Don't be fooled by the before and after pictures. It's a sham It is like you taking a picture of yourself before you do your hair then after. When I returned home my wife actually cried after seeing the horrible hair cut I had received. Well a single tear, I think that made it even worse. She then asked if I actually paid someone to do that to my hair. Unfortunately yes I did and have regretted ever stepping foot in olycurl every day after. My advice about this establishment is to be prepared to spend way to much money for a hair cut you can literally have done at any hair salon. If you love your long hair and want to keep it I suggest you just stay home.
Julia gave me the worst haircut I have EVER had in my life!!! If I could post a picture....I would. My hair is 3"shorter on one side. It is uneven. Longer pieces. Shorter pieces. Even Yukiko said that she noticed but she did not do anything!!! I am so disappointed. For $208, I expected a lot more!
Don't go anywhere else if you are a Curly Girl
I have been fighting against my curls for my entire life. Finally, at age 42, friends and family convinced me to try OlyCurl. Yukiko and Julia taught me how to work with my hair, instead of against it and encouraged me to love and appreciate my natural style. It took me a few months to get used to it and was quite scary, but since going there, I haven't straightened my hair and wouldn't dream of it. OlyCurl is more than a hair salon--they educate you on your hair and teach you to love what you have.
Best Cut Ever
As most curly girls know going to get a hair cut is not something you look forward to. They always cut your hair wet and dried it to show me how good it would look straight. I have always wanted to love my curls. Well let me tell you with Yukiko and her helper Julia at OlyCurl it is a wonderful experience to say the least! Yukiko is a master with curls. She sat down and asked me my concerns and explained what and why she was doing what she was doing! And most importantly I LOVE my curls!! Thank you both for the wealth of knowledge on getting the best curl possible!
