I do not know much about the other stylist or management, but I do know that Deborah Defazio is not just a hair dresser, she is a hair artist. I hadn't had my hair done in months (shameful I know), and found her on groupon. I always call ahead as i know groupon takes money out of the owner's hand. I told her my normal stylist had skipped town and I was terrified to trust anyone. I told her what little I know about my hair and she scheduled me that day! I arrived after work to strawberries and champagne and met a stylist for life. She looked at me and told me her recommendations based off the photos I brought on my cell. The fun part was taking before and after mugs! What a diff! My boyfriend loved it ( and he does not "like" short hair. I felt beautiful again. Deborah really cares about her work and the way she is viewed when others view her art. She has strict care instructions, but does not bully you into buying hair products. I paid half of what I would normally have paid for cut and 3 colors. I will recomend her to everyone!
****if you visit, I do not mind if you look at my before and afters :)
Where do I start? I booked the $35 Morgan's Deal special of haircut, haircolor, style etc with Deborah. That should have been my first clue. If it looks like too good a deal to be true - it is! Anyway - walked in and her cublicle was dirty and cluttered beyond belief. And right away she starts telling me that it's going to cost a little bit more than the deal I bought because she wants to add highlights etc (which I did NOT ask for - I wanted just all over color). So ...not wanting to cause a fuss I reluctantly agree but tell her that the top of my hair is almost completely grey and if she puts red on there that spot alone will turn bright red where the rest of my hair will remain dark brown and it will look really strange. But no, she doesn't listen and does her thing regardless. She ALSO takes it upon herself to add color to my eyebrows which I specifically said I DIDN'T want. Color was splashing EVERYWHERE. I don't know if she was drunk or just clumsy but she was dropping everything and color was going everywhere - including my jeans, which are now ruined and on the floor - which at least she wiped up so I didn't step in it! Dye was all over my face and although she scrubbed it hard it didn't come off - so I was forced to walk out of the salon with dye all around my hairline and around my eyebrows. Anyway - two and half hours later as she's starting to cut my hair I notice with horror that the top of my hair is sure enough BRIGHT RED while the rest is dark brown - EXACTLY what I warned her would happen! She insists that once she dries it will "blend" - of course it didn't! I was by this point EXTREMELY upset because she clearly had no idea what the hell she was doing, as I'd warned her this exact thing would happen and I did NOT have time or the patience to sit there for another 2 hours and let her fix this problem!!! She also had NO IDEA how to even style my hair. My hair is naturally curly and any hairdresser knows that you NEVER blow dry naturally curly hair without a diffuser or else it will just turn into frizz - which it of course did. Half way through her styling and increasing upset by her attitude, lies and incompetency I got up and walked out. I rang the manager of the Salon, who was very nice and said he'd call me back with the name of someone who could "fix" it. He did very promptly and told me that the girl was expecting my call. I rang 4 times and twice left voicemail messages that have been unreturned. So at this point my hair is still a complete mess and I'm a VERY unhappy customer. The whole experience was unbelievably traumatic. The color is HORRIBLE, the cut is BAD, Deborah was the most unprofessional hairdresser I've ever come across in my 48 yrs and the style...well I left before that was even finished. I literally could NOT get out of there fast enough and that was two and a half hours of my life I'll never get back and now I have to pay someone else probably to fix it - as the person who was supposed to fix it from the salon never rang me back as promised.
I just moved in and I can tell you. . The owner and the staff have been WONDERFUL!
