My son Westley’s hair is as wild as he is. It’s wavy/curly, grows like a weed and he’s got this swirl pattern in front that creates one crazy cowlick. So if the person cutting his hair doesn’t know what they’re doing, he can end up looking ridiculous – which no parent wants for their child.
For a while, I was taking him to my hair stylist. But as Westley got older, my husband, Graham, took over the task. On the one hand, I was grateful to Graham for helping out – since most child grooming responsibilities land on my plate, by default. But on the other hand, Graham was taking him to a whole bunch of random barber shops/salons – so there wasn’t any consistency. Sometimes the cut/style would be good and sometimes it would be really bad (like once when he brought Westley home with a buzz cut).
So last month when Hair Cuttery contacted me about writing a review (as part of their #MyHCLook campaign), I immediately thought of Westley. Hair Cuttery sent me a $50 gift card to try their services, so I told Graham to get his hair cut too. I scheduled an appointment at a location near me with a stylist named Anna.
I didn’t accompany them to the appointment, but Graham relayed to me what a great experience they had at Hair Cuttery.
Westley can’t sit still for more than a minute, so haircuts can be a challenge – but Anna was a pro. After sitting him in the chair, she pulled out a box of toys – and they held his attention long enough for Anna to work her magic. Westley’s haircut turned out great. It was clean and neat, but stylish. Not too short, but not so long that Westley would need a new haircut soon thereafter.
Graham has basically had the same haircut for the last 10 years or so. His hair is thick, stick straight and he has to keep it short for work (he’s a lawyer) – so there’s not much room for experimentation. But Anna talked him into switching up his bangs. Do guys have ‘bangs?’ Anyway…instead of styling his hair flat in the front and combed forward, Anna trimmed it up and styled it kind of messy/pushed pack. I really like the look. I think he looks really handsome this way and that it takes some years off too. Graham said that he would definitely return to Hair Cuttery for a visit with Anna.
When I perused their menu of services online, I was impressed by how much they do. Of course you can get a shampoo, cut and style. But did you know that you can get color, texture treatments (relaxers and perms), waxing and hair extensions? Well now you know.
