Quality of Service
I went to the Van Michael b/c of their rave reviews online. I booked Greer for a $100 regular updo. I brought in a picture of a hairstyle I had done before as a bridesmaid. She did a pretty good job, except that I had to repeatedly ask her to fix the frizzies and tuck under the hair ends that were poking out. She would have left me looking really unfinished had I not spoken up on several ocassions. I think she was rushing in the end, most likely b/c she was 20 minutes late. My hair also did not stay up all night which is the very first time in my life that it happened and I was NOT partying hard. Honestly, I think I could have gone to my local salon and got the same or better updo, and saved $35.

I didn't tell them I was the bride, only that I wanted an updo (it costs much more for a "bridal updo"). Because this place has such a great reputation, I also tried to save money by not having a trial. Although, I did like my hair (Greer was my stylist), I felt like she rushed it by the end when she was the one that started late. I had tons of frizzies and hair popping out that I had to tell her to fix over and over again. It was very unfinished looking when she was rushing me out. I immediately needed more hairspray as soon as I got back to my hotel. My hair did fall out at the end of the night, which has never happened to me. For $100 for a regular and easy updo that I have gotten times and times again, I expected better service. In hindsight, I wish I would have told her I was a bride, paid the extra $50 and got better service. But for $100 IN THE SALON, I should not have had to. My mother did get an amazing cut and style there with Levi. I highly recommend him for a great affordable cut. If I lived in Miami, he would be my stylist!
