Are these review written by one person? – I have never been to this salon... I was considering going here since I am looking for a new hairstylist... but it seems like most if not all of these reviews were written by one person (except for the negative reviews). Just thought I'd question these reviews.
Becky and Blow Rock!!! – I'm always so nervous when I get my haircut b/c I'm almost never happy with the outcome. But I took my chances and went to Becky at blow and I was blown away! She was so accommodating and really listened to what I wanted and did exactly that! She also threw out some great suggestions on color so I took her advise and went back to put a little kick into my hairstyle and I absolutely loooove it! While I was there she also trimmed my bangs and it looks even better! My hair hasn't looked this good since... never! Becky is awesome!
Great expirience! – I went to Blow needing a big change with my hairstyle. I had extremely long hair past my waist line and looked to Becky for some advise. She did such an amazing job, giving me an updated look that I am so pleased with. The cut, color and style was very affordable and I could not have asked for a better outcome. You're the best Becky!
Faust should've been a hairdresser – Jil and Becky are cold, heartless b*tches. If I have to hear "Hail Satan!" one more time, or about one more weekend of sexual rituals and sacrifices of baby animals to the Dark Lord, I think I might explode.
On the other hand, they're f**king hot, and their haircuts and colors are the best I've ever seen. Maybe a little Faustian bargain played a role in the salon's past? Either way, I've reconciled myself with contributing to the success of the Devil's henchwomen in order to look this good.
More than a hair cut – I'm not the easiest person to please, with a background in the Salon Industry, as well as many years in Customer Service, I don't spend my time and money easily. Jil has been my stylist of choice for many years, and unless I go bald, I'll happily follow that girl anywhere! (And if I did loose my hair, I'd still go to her for a shampoo and shine)! Jil and the Blow Salon staff has treated me (flawlessly) with respect and courtesy each and every time I go there. And I know how tough the public can be. Jil always makes my day and hair better than when I arrived.
Very Inexperienced. – I was not happy at all w/ the service provided. Staff seemed highly inexperienced. It was like getting a cut done by a random off the street. When I asked for a certain style, the stylist had no clue what to do!
Vastly over-rated salon – If you are looking for a sharp, technical haircut, go to another salon. The stylist I saw was didn't seem to know what she was doing...she was tentative and handled the scissors without any apparent skill. She really tried to be charming and she listened to what I wanted, however she was unable to provide a halfway decent haircut. I made an appointment the next day to have the cut fixed at another salon.
Best Haircut EVER! – I'm sorry this other person had a bad experience, it's seems pretty unfair to say to something so negative about the entire salon b/c of one cut. I've been in to see Emma several times and she is awesome (great with short haircuts)! I, personally, have never been happy with a cut until I went to Blow. The salon is comfortable and fun, and they don't overcharge like too many salons do!
worst hair cut – The worst haircut I've ever gotten. It's uneven and choppy. Stay away if you want a professional cut.
I'll never go to another stylist! – Emma has been cutting my hair for years and she has always been able to give me exactly what I'm looking for. From trims to new styles, my hair always looks great not only immediatly afterwards, but they grow out fantastically. I recommend her higly! Thanks Emma!
