Response from Unique Hairdressing & Male Barbering

Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear about your experience. I have investigated with the stylist about your disappointment but unfortunately if you wanted your hair to sit the way you explained it to her, it had to be cut in that way. I am happy to assist you any queries you may have, please do not hesitate to call the salon. Thank you
