Lauren is the best!!.
I always go to Lauren. She is this young, hip chick who cuts quickly and accurately. She checks for symmetry and makes sure you get the hair cut you never knew you could pull off! I go in to see her and ask for a certain do (ie. the Rihanna hair cut, the Posh Spic do, etc.) and she and I talk it out and she always gives me a hair cut that is better than the one I thought I wanted. She works with your hair texture and is honest with you. She recommends all the right products and shows me how to maintain the right style at home. When I have questions for her about at-home hair dyeing and other hair stuff, she gives it to me straight and I appreciate that. She lets me know what brands to use and which to steer clear of. She knows her stuff, thats for sure.
Also, Salon di panache offers free hand massages while you get your hair done, complimentary refreshing lemon water, and little crackers and cookies and stuff.
Nice decor -- its leopard print with maroon velvety accents. Very feminine and luxurious.
