There is nothing pretentious here, just good cuts, good color, good service, good hours and the results that you want. Each stylist is an individual and you simply need to find your "fit". I did and I'll continue to be a monthly client. This is a fun salon, always something interesting going on as they are very into new techniques and product. I love that I can go there after work, have a glass of wine and relax. If the conversation gets going it isn't unusual for the entire salon to join in. I like that.
