I've recently moved to Atlantic Beach and was a little nervous about finding a new hair salon - worry which turned out to be completely unnecessary after my appointment at Cortello. I work on an export site with all guys and let's just say I arrived at Cortello Salon looking like it. This, paired with 12 hour workdays, I also had the roots to prove it. Yikes. Turns out, not a problem. I was graciously greeted and Sam came to get me right on time. Sam was a doll. She seemed to perfectly understand what I had in mind - and provided an ipad so I could show her some images I marked on pinterest -and did SUCH a good job on my hair. The salon was professional and fun and, best of all, you get the sense someone did their homework rather than just set up shop. Quality products, clean and well lit stations, comfortable wash basins, plenty of good magazines, etc. I know there can be a lot of drama at salons - usually two stylist standing in a doorway discussing a difficult client - but frankly ... I'm just trying to get my hair done. I saw - and felt - no drama. I was also informed of what my bill would be before Sam started and after what we had discussed should be the plan of attack. Greatly appreciated - thank you. I have my next two appointments scheduled - thank you again Sam for the suggestion given my schedule and the holiday season approaching - and look forward to returning.
