ARA: I want to break up with my stylist

A reader asks:

I’m looking for recommendations for local hair salons in the area. I’d post on your (Facebook) wall … but I’d like to “break up” with my hair stylist by just not going there as we are friends. I read good things about Patsy’s Pinups and Townsend. Just want input from people who may know of other places.

    I was in this very same position about 8 months ago. I was referred to Jaysie at Hair Creations in Saratoga to correct s color fiasco. She is FANTASTIC with color and did exactly what I had been trying to do with my old hairdresser for months. I eventually had her cut my hair as well. Just fantastic. So talented and a lovely woman as well. Saratoga is a hike but it’s worth it for me. If you’re willing to travel, I recommend you try her out. She also does free consults.

    I like Mona at Michael John’s on Western Ave in Albany, a few blocks past Crossgates heading west. She does exactly what I want her to do (and makes suggestions when I don’t know what I want), plus I love it when she shampoos my hair because it’s practically a scalp massage 🙂

    Not sure of your preferred area, but Sharon at Karizma on Carmen Rd. in Schenectady is the best! She always listens to what I ask for and does an amazing job with color. Plus, she does an awesome blowout. Good luck!
