Leticia saves the day – I've moved a lot and haven't had a regular stylist in a long time, but last fall a friend recommended Leticia at Fierce for my wedding haircut and style. She did an amazing job, especially considering I didn't really know what I wanted. I literally gave her nothing but a shrug of the shoulders and an ambiguous description (something like, "I don't know, I want to look different, but not *too* different"). I really didn't know what I wanted, so I decided to just trust the expert and hope to God that I would look hot on my wedding day.
By the time she was done, I was doing a (very uncharacteristic of me, mind you) girlish squeal out of glee. What can I say, I was getting married and I felt pretty. Shoot me.
The point being, though, that Leticia did an awesome job. And since I'm not very good with the whole take-care-of-your-hair thing, the best part about the cut was that it also looked great the next morning when it was clean and unstyled. And bonus points for the fact that the layers were cut in such a way that it continued to look good even as it grew out. My hair surprisingly still looked decent even when I finally went back for another cut... six and a half months later (I know, I know - I told you I'm not good with hair maintenance).
But here's the real kicker: there's this haircut I'd been secretly dreaming about for a long time (like, five years!), but I never had the balls to do it because I never trusted anyone to do it right. The look is based on a comic book character called Strange Girl, and it's super short in the back, with long sections in the front, and bangs. Quite a change from *really* long straight hair with no bangs, no frills, and just some light layers.
After my first experience with Leticia, though, I knew she could do the cut and adapt it well to my own style. She was really sensitive to the fact that I was a little nervous at first and asked all the right questions to not only understand what I wanted, but also just to make for damn sure I was really ready to do this. Within a few minutes, my hair was in a rubber band and about to be completely lopped off, and I was seconds away from having bangs for the first time since I was five years old. And yet, I couldn't have felt more confident about my decision (and her ability) to do it.
I've now had the cut for over a week, and just like the other one, it's fun to style but doesn't need product to look good. I don't even know how many people have grabbed my arm and demanded to know who gave me this awesome haircut. It's by far my favorite cut I've ever gotten, and I honestly wonder why I ever decided to wait on doing it. (Oh yeah - because I hadn't met Leticia yet.)
An Amazing Hair Experience! – Before I begin, I think it's absolutely crazy how people have actually had bad experiences at Fierce because mine was nothin but extraordinary! I've been lookin for a place that was within my budget, convenient, and at the same time accomodating to my work schedule. Fierce sufficed every one of these topics! From the moment I walked in, the staff immediately greeted me, everyone was very welcoming as I was 20 min late! They continuosly checked in with me and made sure that everythin was to my satisfaction. My hairstylist helped me tremendously, she gave me her opinion on what she thought would look good including what I originally wanted and had been brainstorming for a while, we came to a compromise and my hair looked amazing. I've never been so ecstatic about my hair as I do now! No more bouncing around, I believe I've found one of tha best salons in Nashville. I recommend this salon to everyone and guarantee you'll leave happy!
Avoid at all costs – I used a Groupon for a hair makeover (highlights and cut) and am regretting every penny spent. I cannot begin to explain the weird experience I had there - the stylists were more interested in talking to each other than paying attention to their clients, and my own stylist even answered her cellphone two times during my highlights application.
But the worst part? My hair was a train wreck. The highlights were the worst I've had BY FAR in my entire life, and I had to go back to my regular stylist two days later to get them fixed (which I happily paid before because I couldn't walk around in public looking like that). The Fierce stylist had completely ignored everything I'd asked for, even when I thought I was being annoying by stressing "NOT CHUNKY. i want subtle." and I got anything but. Plus they started at least an inch away from my roots - it was such a hack job, like she'd never done this before in her life.
Don't spend a dime at this place and tell your friends to stay away if they care what their hair looks like when walking out. It's just a really strange place and they don't make up for it by knowing what they're doing.
(p.s. I find it interesting that they have so many 5 star reviews posted in the last few days, all by people who have never before posted reviews. Fishy much?)
Fierce Salon – As a guy that is extremely picky about his hair, I have been looking for someone who was consistent and listened about how I like it to be cut. Not only did Angel do that, but a year later and he is continually asking if I liked my last cut, do I want to do anything different, etc. He takes his time, and wont let you leave until you like it. My hair is as healthy looking as it has been in years, and I couldnt be happier. I know several women who get their hair cut there, and he does a fantastic job on them as well (one of them referred me to him). Give them a try, you wont be sorry.
Great Hair Experience!! – After "bouncing" around from salon to salon for nearly 3 years, I will bounce no more!! Angel is a true professional who truly listens to what you want...and provides his honest opinion when you want that too! Had a great "hair experience" as he gave me a cut and style that has received soooo many compliments from friends...AND strangers! On my way up the elevator to work the other day, a guy I'd never seen before told me my hair was "rockin' awesome"...wow, I think that's a good thing, right?!!
I cannot wait for my next appointment with Angel!
Fabulous Experience at a Fabulous Salon – I had been going to a salon here in Nashville for 3 years and was getting a little bored (and a little broke). I was referred to Leticia at Fierce by a friend and was beyond impressed! The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating from the second I walked in the door. Leticia took my concerns and wants and ran with it. My hair is healthier looking and my color rocks!!! I will continue to go back to this hidden gem and continue to send them referrals!!
Best Hair Care Yet – Several of my co-workers were going to Angel for their hair care, and their hair always looked great. I wanted something that was "gym-friendly" and easy to take care of, but looked good.
I made an appointment with Angel and couldn't believe the attention the staff gave me from the time I walked in the door until the time I left.
Even getting my hair washed is a treat because it includes a head massage which has been great every time.
The best part about Fierce Salon though is Angel. He is the best when it comes to hair color and cuts. I have been extremely pleased with both. He does not rush and makes sure it looks great. After all, it's advertisement for him.
He is very interesting to chat with, but even with no talking, it is pampering at its greatest.
I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE FIERCE HAIR SALON AND ANGEL.
A Salon that Makes a Difference – My experience is with the hair salon. The staff is not only great at what they do but are personal and caring. Upon entering the salon, you can tell right away that the staff works hard to make your experience enjoyable and relaxing. Also, if you have the chance, ask them about their Make a Wish Events. I had the opportunity to partake in one and I am extremely impressed with their mission to make a difference.
Angel at Fierce Salon - SAVES! – Angel at Fierce Salon has saved me! i have naturally curly hair and it's always done fine....just fine. but after getting a cut from Angel that was meant for people with curly hair, it's like i have an entirely new head of hair! it curls like a dream and is easy to maintain. He always takes his time with his clients, never making you feel rushed or unimportant. he is easy and fun to talk with. They give you wine to relax and enjoy your time. They give discounts to first-timers and treat you as if you've been coming for years. i have loved this salon, but espcially Angel's expertise, genuine care and feedback on what he thinks will work/look best for you. YOU MUST TRY THIS SALON!!!
Top Salon in Nashville – I went to Fierce salon after my boyfriend bought a Groupon for me to have my hair cut and colored. As soon as I walked into the salon I fell in love with it. I had to wait a little bit for my appointment but nothing major. My stylist was very friendly and also knew exactly what she was doing. I told her what I wanted and how I wanted it, and that's exactly what I got! I loved her and her work so much that I prebooked another appointment immediately and even booked a mani/pedi from the same girl. She was fairly new to Fierce but knew exactly what she was doing. She even offers extensions!! Great salon, knowledgable, talented staff!! I will be going back without a doubt!!!!!!
