Mike at Blondie is Amazing! He completely exceeded my expectations!
A friend recommended Blondie to me and when I called, I told them that I have long curly hair and wanted to chop it all off into a fun sassy bob. I asked -- who would be the best to that? They said Mike and scheduled me with him.
When I got there he listened to what I wanted, which was pretty vague -- chop it off, bob, fun like Victoria Beckham but without such a dramatic length variance. I told him I had been growing out my hair for Locks for Love and it was time to cut it off (it was down to the middle of my back). I warned him that I've never had hair shorter than shoulder length and that I was putting my trust in him to make me look good ....
Well he made me look fabulous! He spent almost two hours on me. Cutting, washing, cutting some more, then he blew it out, styled it, and then cut again to make it perfect. I felt transformed while sitting his chair. Everyone in the salon was watching and smiling, adoring his work.
When he was satisfied with his work, he let me take a full look. I loved it -- absolutely loved it. He turned to me and reminded me how much work went into it and that I better work it! I left the salon walking on air!
Later that evening I went to a party to show off my new hair. My friends said I looked like a new person, they loved it! People who I hadn't met said that the cut really suited me. It makes me look thinner, fresh, and modern -- much more professional. The upside is that I can wear the cut straight or curly - straight is definitely sexy and professional, very sleek, while curly is fun, sassy, and a little more casual and wild.
I swear by Mike and highly recommend him to anyone who is nervous about cutting their long hair or who wants an amazing bob. He definitely puts in the time and effort to make sure that you and he both love your hair. He is definitely my go-to and I wouldn't let anyone else touch my hair from this point forward!!
Oh and the best part -- my whole life I've paid about $15-20 for my hair cuts. I was afraid that a big fancy salon would charge an insane amount, like over $100 --- not the case here. For all that work, the total cost was only $70! I know that's a big increase from what I used to pay -- but the expertise, time, and effort -- as well as the final product -- made $70 a bargain!
