I called Code and spoke with the co-owner who sang the praises of the other co-owner Louise. I am willing to pay a lot of money for a nice haircut. So, I scheduled a consultation and left feeling not so sure. I should have trusted my instincts. Unfortunately, I scheduled appointments for both myself and my Mom.
I have naturally curly hair and Mom’s is more straight with some body. Louise cut the hell out our hair. We literally had no hair left. We both had hair past our shoulders and came out with no hair for a ponytail. Let’s be very clear, neither of us asked for this type of change.
I asked for a precision haircut and left with uneven hair everywhere and two flaps on the side that looked like dog ears. I’m serious! Even the bottom of my hair is uneven, with one side longer than the other. Poor Mom who trusted me to find a decent hairdresser asked for no hair in her face and left with a chunk that fell directly over half of her face and the back of her head cut with a razor and therefore uneven chunks of hair all around and at the bottom. I could have done a better job myself on both haircuts.
Also, save your money and do NOT go to Dustin for color. Mom asked for Dark brown/black and came out with red/purple (seriously!) and all white underneath and on the sides. He brushed on enough color to make it look really weird and left all the white underneath. Half white/half red-purple. When I pointed this out, he was extremely snippy and defensive saying he was going for a “younger look.” What?!? Then, when I asked about all the white he said it was underneath so it was okay. Again, what?!? I do a better job with a box of dye at home. Why pay an arm and a leg so there is white underneath??? DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
I’m now thinking all the people who had bad experiences just don’t take the time to write a review on Dirty Scam. So, I’m hoping this will save some people. It has been 6 months and I am still growing my hair out and cringe every time I look in the mirror and think, “What was she thinking???” No one should pay so much money and have to wear their hair up and with clips. There is literally no way to wear my hair down without it looking weird and hanging strangely.
The worst haircut of my life! Mom concurs, the absolute worst haircut and dye job ever!
