Pretty much Perfection.
So, I would have to say that it wouldn't be a stretch if you called me high maintenance. With that being said, I absolutely LOVE my hair every time I walk out of Angry Chair!
After going to new hairdressers every 6 months, I finally found a place I 100% trust. I've been at the Angry Chair for 6 yrs now and would actually fly in from TX every 4 months as an excuse to get my hair done. Yeah, high maintenance... but totally worth it! Dave has such a talent at coloring that I'm actually known as "the girl with the great hair" at the hospital I work at. What girl doesn't love that kind of compliment?
I care more about how my hair looks at the end of my appointment than the time I wait, the paint on the walls, or the condition of the flooring. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!
Angry Chair does INSANELY AWESOME HAIR. I've been going to Angry Chair for about a year now, and I always leave with my hair looking amazing. Lara is an incredibly talented stylist, and has been able to produce the perfect haircut/color for me based on the very minimal guidelines I give her, as well as my personality. I feel completely comfortable going in there with no idea what I want, and giving Lara complete artistic control. If you're looking for a hairdresser, go to the countless other salons in CT. If you're looking for people who are true artists in their line of work, go to the Angry Chair.
Angry Chair. I've been patronizing Angry Chair for about two years. Dave creates my color and cut, and I have NEVER looked better! Laura's clients always walk out looking amazing, too. These are two very talented artists, who although offbeat, never fail to amaze! The salon is super casual, and if you don't like metal and hair bands, the place may not be for you, but I always find it fun, energizing and never, ever boring! By the way, I'm over 50 and I love it!!!!
The Angry Chair. I have been going to The Angry Chair for a few years and I am a very satisfied customer. Over the years, I have been to several salons , spending ridiculous amount s of money for poor quality, leaving so unhappy but that was not the case with Dave. Dave is an amazing hair stylist, colorist etc., and going to him is worth every penny I spend!! Over the years, coming in early or waiting for my color to develop I have seen him do amazing colors and styles on both young and older people, from funky colors and cuts to more reserved looks, whatever it is he does , he does EXCEPTIONAL! I have also witnessed what a great repore he has with his customers. I find him to be so very personable, respectful and funny, he goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. At the end of the appt, he always makes certain you are happy, if not, he will gladly fix it. He will come in on days he is closed, Dave is just awsome and amazing. I have recommended him to friend and family and they feel the same. If you are thinking about going to The Angry Chair , do not hesitate!!
They "Get" Me.
Dave is amazingly talented when given the time and creative freedom he needs to do his best work. Here are 5 steps to making the most of your Angry Chair experience with Dave:
1. Before you make your appointment, decide if you want color and if so, tell them so when you call to schedule. Keep in mind that Angry Chair appointments are longer than salon visits because of the personalization that goes into your look; pick a day free from other obligations, and avoid their busiest times if possible so that Dave can focus his attention on you.
2. Before your visit, consider your style preferences (length, colors, etc.) and what styling you are willing to do each day (flat-ironing, blow-drying, etc.). It's best not to pick a specific haircut ahead of time - just think about your style in a general way. Then, at the start of your appointment, Dave will strike up a conversation - that's the time to share all your style information with him so that he can create a hairstyle that truly suits you.
3. Once all your style info is out there, let Dave do his thing! The less direction I give him, the better I look at the end of the appointment. He has an eye for what looks good on me, and he always asks before doing anything drastic. I never worry about leaving with a look that isn't "me."
4. After the cut and/or color, Dave will style your hair. PAY ATTENTION, and ask questions. If you're not sure how to do something that he's doing, he will show you. You can also ask what products he's using.
5. When Dave is done styling, he'll hand you a mirror and spin you around so you can see your new 'do from all angles. If there is anything you don't like, TELL HIM. He will talk with you some more until he understands exactly what you don't like about it, and then he'll offer some solutions.
I trust no one other than Dave with my hair. The extra time I spend in his chair translates into less time in front of the mirror at home. He totally "gets" me, so I always leave with a style that's truly me.
This place left me speechless. Not only was it DIRTY but extremely UNPROFESSIONAL. The hair "stylist" did not know what color to apply to my hair, EVEN when I showed her exactly what I wanted, she had the look of a deer in headlights. The outcome was unbelievable - my hair was damaged to the point of no repair.
EVERYONE (friends, family) agreed that my new "style" was completely ****** UP.
I hate to sound harsh, but I guess you expect to get a STANDARD in hair styling AT LEAST...but instead you get a DISASTER. I will continue to let EVERYONE I KNOW know about this junk place.
THANKS A LOT GUYS!!! UGH, smh!
I've been going to the angry chair for several years now: yes, the shop is more "casual" than some which make it more comfortable.
Dave does a great job with both coloring and cut: I have never been disappointed. And on the one occasion that I had difficulty doing the styling myself, I went back and he worked with me again at no charge and in time for me to get to my function. Do plan on spending some time there, bring a book and enjoy!
bad experience. I have been going to this salon for about a year (if not longer) and loved the way the girl did my hi-lites and cut. I called to make an appmt and was informed that she was no longer there. They gave me someone else to do my hilites and cut. This person did such a terrible job!! Not only was my hair ORANGE but she was supposed to straighten it for me and it was curly in back on the bottom. I was so agravated that I called them a few days later to speak with the manager/owner who i left a message for and he never called me back. Gotta love the customer service...NOT!
unprofessional and dirty. I understand the look the angry chair is going for, which is what i expected to recieve, HOWEVER i sat in the salon for about six hours....still leaving very unhappy. Sinks were disgusting and had hair in them...i probably should of ran but tried to stay optimistic. The girl doing my hair was probably the worst colorist ive ever been too...and still charged me the price of a high end salon. I noticed alot of their products were from sally beauty supply...which is gross in my opinion. If i am going to pay 130 dollars to get my hair cut and colored...it better not be some generic SH*T. NOt to mention the stylist claimed to not have to toner she needed to fix my hair...wait and you are a salon? NEVER GO HERE unless you dont give a f*ck about what you look like. Left with almost everything i said i was trying to avoid....and orange hair. Think twice!
The Angry Chair Rocks. The Angry Chair is a great place to get your hair done, whether you're looking for blue and purple spikes or something more traditional, the stylists are amazing and cool people to hang with while you're there. I have been to many different salons and day spas in the West Hartford area, but my hair looks best after going to see Dave at The Angry Chair.
