*Also, the reviews for the stylist called Bijou, on my listing here, are separate from Hair By Kate. When Citysearch merged companies awhile back, they grouped some stylists's reviews together..this is incorrect.
I've asked Citysearch to remove them many times..but they have not.
Please only take note of the reviews for Kate in this listing.
Kate of Hair By Kate does excellent Men's Cuts!.
I have a hectic work schedule and need to try to get in for a cut on a day I might have off. I mentioned this to Kate and she was more than happy to try to accomodate me on a walk- in/call-in type basis.
So far, it's worked out good and on the one or two times I had to change the appointment, she was more than understanding and didn't make me feel bad or guilty for having to move it.
I really needed this type of haircut arrangement.
It's a relief to find someone who gives me an excellent haircut and is FLEXIBLE.
I've had more than my share of bad cuts and people making me wear smocks/gowns in the salon, have to make an appt. when leaving, etc.
I don't want all the frills (although Kate has it if you do want that).
Suffice it to say, I'm ecstatic I found Kate and plan to see her for as long as I have hair on my head!
Oh, and she offers free neck trims to her regular clients.
She helps make my life a little less hectic.
For really good highlights and cuts, go see Kate!!.
I like Kate's personality, and how she cuts and color my hair.
The trick to me staying with a hairstylist, is they need to give good cuts and good, natural looking highlights,- but I have to really like them too.
I found these requirements when I met Kate. I work with a gal that has gone to Kate for quite awhile and I kept looking at her hair and really liking it.
I finally called Kate for an appointment and was lucky to get in, she was all filled up that week, but was willing to come meet me on a Mon. a.m..
I thought it was so gracious of Kate, I don't even know if she works on Monday's.
She patiently listened to what I wanted my hair to look like, and proceeded to make it happen.
I love my highlights, and the cut. I have long hair and she only cut what I requested.
I have made another appointment for March and look forward to it.
The Perfect Angle. Bijou is remarkable. I am overjoyed to have found her. I originally went in for a consultation to discuss the sort of hair style I wanted after spending two whole years getting bad haircuts and having just received an even more incongruous cut. At the consultation Bijou listened as I explained each aspect of my hairstyle including what I liked and what I definitely wanted to change. She was very attentive and made affirming remarks about the angles and cuts I suggested. At the end of the consultation I felt she not only understood me, but understood hair and style in general. Then I went back a week later for the cut... Ta dah, Bijou gave me a stunning, perfectly angled cut, exactly what I had hoped for and I have been digging it ever since. She is one of those rare stylists who can sort of divine your best style as well as grasp any details you explain about your hair!
