I just got off the phone with Mr. Alexander and, unfortunately, I must report it was not a good encounter.

Long story short I went to his Salon yesterday morning to redeem a Living Social voucher for a haircut, single process color and blow-dry. The lady I was scheduled to be with was no longer working there, so I was given to their "Senior Colorist" on staff. I discussed with her my hair issues, explaining that I was fire-engine red last summer but now I am trying to return to blonde for my April wedding. I told her that several other salons had single-processed a strawberry-blonde color into my hair and that I could not afford the $120 highlights she wanted to give me. So she said she would take me back to my "base color." None withstanding the rest of the conversation, I was under the impression that I would be walking out of his salon as some form of strawberry blonde. Halfway through my blow-out I realized my hair was darkdarkdark BROWN and started to cry. They did nothing about it. As I was walking out the door crying, they did nothing about it.

Which leads me to my conversation with the owner of the salon. We went around in circles with the conversation and he was getting frustrated- I swear I never raised my voice or got obcinent. He then had the NERVE to say, "What do you *bleeping* want me to do??" When I very quietly asked him why he had the audacity to curse at me like that, he denied ever having cursed. Why would I make this up?? I wasn't demanding a refund, I was wanting to know TWO THINGS: 1) Why I misunderstood the colorist so much; and 2) Why on Earth would any professional establishment allow a client to walk out the door crying?? That made no sense to me. He continued yelling at me so I just hung up the phone.

I feel like crap.

Brian helped me with my hair and makeup. Loved my hair, but not the makeup. I asked for a natural look and ended up with a lot of makeup on my face and ended up taking it off before the ceremony . But overall
Nice experience with Brian.

I loved my wedding day at Alexander's of Annapolis, they made me feel absolutely beautiful and relaxed! My hair turned out better than I could have imagined. I had airbrush make-up done, it lasted all day and was amazing! I had a great time laughing with the guy who did my make-up and he really made my day-of make-up suit me. It was a perfect day, and they started it perfectly. I will continue to go to Alexander's.

I was surprisingly disappointed in Alexander's of Annapolis and here's why...
I was assigned to Rita to do my bridal up-do. The hair trial with her was awful. Not only could she not pull off the style I wanted even though she had a large printed picture, she wasn't even a good stylist (ie. she constantly made crimps in my hair from the curling iron-even I know how to avoid making crimps from a curling iron!). She also didn't listen to me and my suggestions. I have naturally curly hair but it's thin so I tried to tell her what would work and wouldn't work but she blew it off. I live in Chicago but the wedding was in Annapolis so the weekend I flew to MD for the trial was the last trip to MD before the wedding. I was so upset about the trial that I called and spoke to Alexander himself. He set me up for another hair trial free of charge but I couldn't afford to fly one more time so I had to do it a few days before the actual wedding (adding a lot more stress right before the wedding). He wanted to give me Rita again but I had to put up a fight for him to agree to give me a different stylist, Heather. Heather ended up doing a great job but I wish they had her do my hair from the beginning and eliminated all of the stress.
My other disappointment was Susan, the coordinator. I had my entire bridal party, plus mom's and grandma's get their hair and makeup done there the day of the wedding. Coordinating with Susan was so frustrating and stressful. She was very scatter-brained and unorganized, which is the opposite you should be as a coordinator. I had to send her the same email THREE separate times because she kept telling me that she misplaced the information from the emails. There was misinformation about how the bridesmaids should pay and I was ridiculed for it by her even though I gave everyone the exact information she gave me! She also called me two days before the wedding to ask ME why she hadn't received payment for some of the bridesmaids-not something I wanted to deal with days before the wedding and something easily worth waiting two days when she would see them the day of the wedding. She also messed up the scheduling, telling us that we would be there a few hours earlier than we ended up being.
I could keep going with even more details but overall, I didn't feel as though their services were worth the high prices (with automatic 20% gratuity!) and ESPECIALLY not worth the added stress they caused me. Go elsewhere!

My trial with Alexander, the owner of the salon, went better than the actual styling of my hair for the wedding itself. For my trial updo he did a funky contemporary look with my curly long hair that I liked very much. However, 6 months later, the morning of my wedding, he wasn't able to replicate the fun look of the updo that he'd done before despite having a photograph of it and instead created a much more traditional, formal look for my hair. It looked good and held through the day but it wasn't what I'd wanted and not what we'd planned. My trial makeup was so awful that I decided to do my own makeup which worked out fine. The makeup artist at the salon did a terrible job during the trial, starting with her drawing in my eyebrows where she thought they should be as opposed to where they actually exist, and went downhill from there. I wouldn't recommend the makeup artistry at all -- it's very heavy-handed and I didn't look like myself at all. The hair turned out OK and was pretty but not what I'd paid for, which was disappointing.

I've never had my hair styled professionally before so I decided to do it for the big day. Alexanders made me feel so relaxed the morning of my wedding. My hair looked amazing and I've never had so many compliments. Thank You!
