I am one of those lovely ladies who adores untraditional hair colors! I went to Caroline at Jon David Salon with a near impossible mission. I had a standard hair stylist before this, however, she went on maternity leave (and she was okay... decent color jobs that faded quickly). Her replacement she recommended ended up frying off a section of my hair (the front bang section, so you can imagine how horrifying that looked) and leaving me with bright-pink straw for the rest. I looked for master colorists in the area, because I knew I was in trouble and could ended up with a buzzed head) and Jon David Salon came up. I called and they placed me with Caroline. She ended up being the best hair stylist I have ever gone to! She took the time needed to not only save what hair she could, but to get me back to an amazing color (a beautiful purple-pink that ombres to a lighter pink on the tips) and gave me a cut that I absolutely adore. She also gave me 2 deep conditioning treatments and stayed an hour past closing to make sure everything was perfect! Yes, it was pricey to fix, but worth every single penny. I've never had this many people compliment my hair before (and I usually am drawn to colors that make people speak up) as both the color job and the cut were beyond amazing. The other nice thing about the color is that even after 4 weeks, it's holding the color (the ombre has become more pronounced, but that was expected). Honestly, I don't intend for anyone other than Caroline to color/cut/treat my hair again! She really is that amazing!!!
