Great Experience! Great haircut! – I've been here twice already and was even more impressed the second time. You are acknowledged as soon as you walk in, they get you seated in the waiting area and offer you a cold beverage (yes, beer and wine too) and you can take your drink with you to enjoy while you are getting a haircut.
What is more important than getting good service is quality haircut. And you know you got a great haircut when more than one person compliments you on it . My stylist was amazing. She first asked my how I want the cut then made some recommendations, and the end result was perfect! I strongly recommend requesting Berjouhi. She is a Master Stylist and there is a good reason why.
Outstanding service, best place in town – I've been a customer at 18/8 in Pasadena for almost 2 years and I would definitely recommend it to others. The complimentary beverages, massages, and upscale men's salon-atmosphere are nice extras. By now I suppose I'm used to this kind of special treatment, but I can remember before I found 18/8 it was a struggle just to find a place that could deliver a decent haircut. What is really important to me is great customer service, and most of all a quality haircut -- and 18/8 delivers on both.
Although 18/8 is going to be more expensive than any generic salon ($35 range) I think it's worth it. You might be surprised how often women can tell the difference between a Supercuts/DIY haircut and a professional one. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment if you're in the area. Also, you should request Patricia when you book an appointment. She is a senior staff member, very skilled and knowledgeable in men's grooming/care and she will not disappoint!
Experts That Care – I have been going to 18|8 for about a year now, and of all the places I have ever gone to get my hair cut, 18|8 is by far the best. In my opinion, it is really the ONLY place in a Pasadena where a man can get a great haircut.
What stands out first and foremost, is the quality of service provided to the customer. They call you the day before to verify your appointment - a nice professional touch. Once you arrive, the staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They provide comfy leather chairs and offer wine or water to pass the time as you wait - which tends to be no more than few minutes.
The second thing that stands out is the skill and professionalism of the stylists. They work with you to find the cut and style that will work best for you. They are very friendly people, which is important to me - I want to be with a stylist who actually CARES whether I look good or not. Supercuts, for instance, made me feel like I was at a triage unit in a war hospital - "Get him in stat - sit, cut, dry, get him outta here. NEXT!" The stylists at 18|8 by comparison, will not only give me the best damn haircut I've ever had, but will offer neck and shoulder messages too. Very cool.
One stylist in particular deserves special attention. Her name is Patricia and she is, without doubt, the best hairstylist I've ever had. She is the Master Stylist, and it definitely shows. I've always had problem hair, mostly due to always getting my hair cut by different people who didn't really care. Thanks Supercuts! (sarcasm). But in the year or so that I've trusted Patricia to take care of me, my hair is exactly where I want it to be. Thanks Patricia! (high praise). One more thing, she is the sweetest, friendliest person you will meet. She WILL make you feel at ease and she WILL make you laugh. Treat her right, and Patricia will make you look like the best-looking guy in the world.
Great Concept - A Salon For Men!! – I have been a loyal client of 18/8 Pasadena for over a year now and I love it. You have to experience it for yourself in order to appreciate it, but I'll try to explain it as best I can.
This a one stop shop. You sit down, get shampooed, cut, rinsed, "and a hot face towel while you condition" then a shoulder massage and your blow dry/finishing. How great is that?? Who does that today??
And the best part is that they are reasonably priced!! Much more so than Carlton, or Regis, or the other chain salons.
Worth every penny, ask for Helena (my stylist) and she'll take care of you!!
Do Not Go – The overated chain salon is nothing but a bunch of burnt out wanna be hair stylist working minimum wage giving horrible hair cuts and pushing for you to buy products for which they have no knowlegde of its content or ingredients. I'de rather have my 80 year old Granpa cut my hair with both his shaking hands then to step foot in that modernized wannabe Supercuts. 2 thumbs down!!
