I've heard a few comments about neutral or bad experiences there, but in a pinch, if you just need a trim... I called Hi Gorgeous in desperation on a Wed. afternoon and got an appointment for that Sat. afternoon. The cut and color were perfect and priced right (haircut for new clients is 1/2 price). The stylist (Brittany) listened well and did EXACTLY what I wanted. Staff there were polite, attentive, and friendly but not obnoxious. No complaints whatsoever.
My last haircut before that, I went to Krissy at Capelli. Liked her, the cut and color were fine (nothing special), but I HATED the salon - crowded, dirty (!!), staff at the front desk were not at all friendly, took 3 1/2 hours for all-over color (no fancy highlights or anything) and a trim (of my straight, medium-length hair), and it took 3 weeks to get an appointment with her. Swore I'd never go there again. But I tend to like smaller salons anyway, where there's not a separate stylist and shampoo girl - ick.
