You can finally relax! – Amy knows what she is doing! She understands that you just can't cut curly hair the same way you cut straight hair. She understands what so many of us with curly hair have gone through and she works hard to make you feel comfortable. She will listen to everything you have to say and she will take the time to explain what she is doing and why. Amy goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are taken care of and are happy. I'm amazed at how great my curls can look with so little effort on my part.
Great! – I'm 43 and picky about my hair. Amy is among my very favorite hairdressers (only two others of my lifetime live up to her!). She gets hair- how it curls, how it moves, how it frames each face, how it dries. She cares and wants me to be happy. She totally listens and happily looks at photos to understands your wants and then helps you translate how the look will work with your face and hair. I love her space and the privacy and the ease of scheduling.
Amy is the best! – Having your hair cut by Amy is a treat. My hair is wavy and only needs shampooing and combing if it is cut correctly. She listens to how you want your hair to look and proceeds accordingly . She is accomplished; she is professional; she is a delight! If you like a razor cut, Amy is the stylist for you. I have been looking for 5 years for someone who can cut curly/wavy hair. Today was my third hircut by Amy and I cannot recommend her highly enough .
The only one I trust – After getting a few bad haircuts, I found Amy and I'm staying! Amy understands my hair, the way it pulls up when it dries, the way layers sit, how to make it fuller without it being one round poof or looking like the triangle-head from Dilbert. I don't describe very well what I want, but she always knows what I mean and always does it well. Besides getting my best haircuts from Amy, she is a very nice and creative person, so she's fun to be around. Once you try, you'll see what I mean!
Spectactular Service and Great Hair! – Amy is an amazing hair stylist. She does a phenomenal job with curly hair and knows how to deal with the craziness of my curls. I am always happy with my haircut and it looks great as it grows out as well. She also is a master of hair color and takes the time to help you figure out what hair color works best for you and your skin tone. She also does a great job with eyebrow waxing. If you need any of these services, Amy is the person to go to! You leave looking great and having had a great time chatting with Amy as well. I am most excited to be going back again!
Finally, A Haircut That's Me – I've been looking for someone that could give me a good cut and color and I found that talent in Amy. She is an artist taking into account her whole canvas. She's patient and listens and makes suggestions while considering my input as well. I have short wavy hair and she gave me a cut that feels like me. It's cute, fresh, hip and takes about 5 years off my age. I love the Italian herbal hair color line that she uses. It leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny. It's also important to me tthat my hair designer be someone that I enjoy spending time with since I go every three weeks. Amy is warm and nurturing and pleasant to chat with. Thanks Amy!
Amy is an artist – I moved to Boulder, Colorado in July, but I refuse to find a new hairstylist because I can't imagine trusting anyone as much as I trust Amy. She was my hairstylist for the 5 years I lived in Columbus. In my opinion, she is truly an artist. She looks at the whole picture of a person - their lifestyle, their dress, their facial features to create a look that naturally and atractively fits the individual. I am very particular about my hairstyle, but I always hate the forced look of a "haircut". Amy knows how to take a sculpted look from a magazine and turn it into something natural and (as far as I'm concerned) glamorous.
I Actually Like My Hair Now – I survived the 80's (just barely) with big hair that wasn't TRYING to be big. So you can imagine how many bad haircuts I've had, and how many times I've left in tears because someone tried to blowdry my curls and I could see the horror on her face as my hair just got bigger and frizzier . . .
Then I met Amy. My hair "good twin" went first; I loved what Amy did for her hair, so I decided to take the plunge myself. After my first cut from Amy, I told her that I'd never smiled when leaving a hair salon before. Now I actually look forward to getting my hair cut, and I don't have to rush home and get in the shower to get all the disgusting product out of my hair.
She gives advice when asked on how to style my hair, what products to use, etc. And she's also ok when I think I know what I want - she'll style my hair, or not, depending on the day, my mood, etc. I love the cut and the color, and I think my hair is easier for me to style between visits as well. Amy is truly outstanding, and I can't recommend her enough!
Your Curls Will POP!! – This is by far the best haircut I have every gotten! I have 3c/4a type ringlets and coils that I usually spend up to 2 hours to perfectly style...and of course a head full of frizz. Not only did she talk WITH me about what I wanted to achieve she took the time to SHOW me what she was trying to do to make an overall look. I have several different ways in which I can style my hair in less than 30 mins. I recommend her to those with curly and straight hair. Perfect location and set-up. And if you want a massage, manicure, or waxing you can stay there and go to another loft.
I want to keep her to myself....but I would hate for more curlies to go around with bad cuts.
Curly Hair Queen – I followed Amy from Akada Salon to the Lofts. No one takes care of me like Amy. I don't ever feel pressured to have ideas about what I want done. She always has suggestions I trust and always makes me feel and look like a million bucks. I have had plenty of horrible experiences with people who say they know curly hair, even went for well over a year with out so much as a trim for fear of more damage being done to my hair. I have been with Amy for over 4 years and I will follow her anywhere! My sister feels the same, and comes into town from North Carolina planning her trips around when she needs her hair done. There is no substitute for Amy!
