Love, love, love my new style! I just moved to Milwaukee so I wasn't sure where to go to get my hair cut. I'm so glad I chose Brian. He really spent a lot of time discussing my hair care routine and my likes/dislikes of various styles and lengths. He talked me through how to blowdry and style my hair for the best results. He reassured me that I could come back if I had any issues/problems with my cut and he was a blast to talk to! I couldn't be happier with the style and I'm getting tons of compliments at work!
Worst Haircut I Have Ever Received – With all the great reviews, I had high hopes and was looking forward to my haircut with Brian. Well, it's over a month later and I still dread looking into the mirror every morning and must still wear my hair in a mousy ponytail while the weird short layer (originally shorter than eye level) grows out. From what I observed, he gives fine conservative haircuts to women over 50. But if you are under 40 and he suggests, "Of course you want a look," RUN LIKE HELL.
I waited to write this review hoping that I would eventually like the cut. No such luck. Also, I went back to ask him if the cut is what he intended - he said I don't know how to style my hair and proceeded to give me a professional blowout. Uh, hello - he probably should have asked me if I have the time to have a haircut that requires a daily blowout to look even decent.
I can not wait – Being the local celebrity, as Brian is, I was really afraid to go in to him for a haircut. It is a lot of money, and I expected him to be affected and into himself. WOW, was I surprised! The first minute I walked in, I thought the beautful girl, I think Rochelle asked me if there was anything I wanted to drink, and to please have a seat, as Brian was going to be about 3 minutes, not the usual 45 minutes from other lesser salons. After about 1 minute, this beautiful smiling knock out of a man FIRSTLY thanked me for coming in, than talked with me about my ugly outdated hair for about 20 minutes. After that, HE gave me a shampoo, massage, and gave me a cut that I have been able to reproduce every day since I had it done. His great advice, wonderful laughter, and genuine interest only forced me to make another, and another, and another appointment! I have found my newest hair guy, and although I have only had two VERY different haircuts, per his and my discussion, I have loved them. I have another worry I can check off of my list. A (self proclaimed) jeans and t-shirt guy... BUT, with talent radiating from every gorgeous pore!!!!! ( I added the last part)
I LOVE GETTING MY HAIRCUT w/ BRIAN – I have been going to Brian for YEARS...even before he owned this salon. He does an amazing job and I ALWAYS love my cut. He is fun to talk to and his staff is so sweet. The place is so beautifully decorated and comfortable as well. Brian is a DOLL.
Great First Visit! – Brian is phenomenal. I call my first appointment to his salon more of an "experience". The salon is emaculate and I loved the decor. Brian takes his time and listens to your concerns and answers any and all questions you have. Not only do you get a great hair cut but you enjoy yourself the whole time your there. He has a great sense of humor and kept me laughing the whole time. Before I left he made sure that I was satisfied with his work, which I definitely was! I will be going back! I love dogs, so Beachum was just an added bonus for me. :-)
Self-serving – Tried this salon and first visit was great, good cut, good advice. Put on 'wait' list for next appointment, when next appt came Brian was all about Brian and not about the client. Very self absorbed and was very distracted by visits from a friend while cutting my hair along with other things 'about him'. Terrible haircut. Had to have it recut within 4 weeks. Will not go back. Buyer beware
Very Professional – Brian was wonderful, he helped me find a wonderful style that I liked and everyone that saw me complimented me on. He makes you feel right at home. He can be a little flamboyant but he is an artist and has vision and professionalism. I plan on going back.
