I have an appointment with Anthony :blob5:

lol, he's booked every Saturday until December 27th though :shock:

so I guess I'll have to wait quite a long time to see how good he is. I've read really wonderful things about him on these boards and the Salon reviews as well. Can't wait to let him fix my mop :P

    Wow, that's exciting! You have to report back! I'm going to my pre-CG stylist on Wednesday, and if things don't work out I'll probably get an appointment with him next time.

    definitely, it always makes me nervous... going to someone new. Supposedly he's good though.

    And CHEAP!! Like $45 for a cut?! I've been paying WAY more than that with my current stylist.

    I hope you like him as much as I do. I need to make an appointment. I keep forgetting to call and my hair is looking very stringy recently.

    ok, so Anthony rocks :) SUPER super friendly, obviously knowledgable about what he's doing and really helped my sister out a lot with her hair (which is difficult, to say the least).

    It was so weird having a dry cut like that... I've never had one before. But it was neat watching him go curl by curl, 'like he was cutting silk' as my sister put it. My hair's really bouncy and light now, even though (by the looks of what was on the floor) he barely took off anything.

    He styled it pretty different from what I normally so, so I had more waves than curls once it was dry, but even that still looked really cute. Just not the norm. Went home and washed it (who DOESN'T do that??) and I'm still loving the cut. It's shorter than I thought it would be, after seeing how little he took off, but the volume's greatly improved and everything just looks so bouncy and fun.

    Definitely going back :)

    Yay! I'm glad you had a good experience! I think I'll try him next time I need a cut. How are your curls now that it's been a few days?

    Yay! I'm so glad you liked him and that he did a good job for you and your sister. Isn't it nice to find someone who does a good job with your hair AND doesn't charge you more than your mortgage payment?

    They took a couple of days to adjust, to be honest. But overal, they're doing just fine :) I have one section that, for whatever reason, isn't curling like it was but I don't think that's Anthony's fault. I think my curls are just possessed.

    and YES br, it's AMAZING to find someone so skilled AND affordable. And friendly, to boot!
