I got a haircut at l'attitudes 4 days ago, and I'm still bugged by the whole experience. First of all, it's a terrible ambiance; the music is way too loud, and you feel like part of a herd of cattle. The place is too small to have >10 customers in at a time!
As soon as I sat down, the hairdresser began to badger me about what kind of treatment I would like.. conditioning, straightening, etc. I let her talk me into a moisturizing treatment for my hair, which after a single wash, I totally don't see a difference! And it was $$!!! I paid $150 for a passable cut, style, and the silly treatment. TOTALLY not worth the money!!! That's what has me frustrated the most.
The hairdresser (a middle age european lady) was also very belittling. I'm 23 and a working professional in downtown Toronto; I want a cut that reflects that. She kept saying that I look "so young", badgered me when I mentioned I was engaged, and treated me the same way my mother did... when I was 14. Like I said, the cut is mediocre. From a technical point of view, there's nothing wrong with it, but it definitely lacks any quality or life.
Please, save your time, hair, frustration, and MONEY and skip this place. I wish I had never gone.
