I got a haircut! I feel like I'm always jumping around from salon to salon, and since moving to a new neighborhood, there I was again looking for another salon near me to go to. Though I love Self Salon in my old neighborhood of Williamsburg, I didn't feel like making the trek from one part of Brooklyn to the other... After some (intensive) research, I finally found a place that I felt could be promising: Salon 718. I made an appointment with the owner of the salon, Michaella, whom I read did really great cuts.
I wanted to go a bit shorter with bangs and throw a bunch of layers in there.
For the entire experience, I'd give 3.8 stars.
For the haircut, I'd give it a solid 4 stars.
The service was a little slow. At Self and Devachan, they were very quick to get my hair washed and me into the chair. In fact at Self, Jeff my stylist actually washed and cut my hair which I really liked. Plus, it was only one tip to shell out.
At Salon 718, I sat at the wash station for probably 10 minutes waiting for someone to wash my hair... Seriously one of my pet peeves! Both at Devachan and Self those transitions were seamless. However, when I met with Michaella, she was very attentive and offered some good hair tips.
Honestly, I feel like no matter what cut I get it comes out looking the same, but I must say it's a really nice change and I feel like I want to stay at this length. It's so much easier taking care of my hair when it's a bit shorter.
There's my quick and dirty review!
