I have now been to see Blake at Royals twice. I wanted to find someone who seemed to understand that I didn't want a 'soccer-mum' edgy look but actually wanted to have a style that reflected my personality and style. Blake seemed to fit the bill and twice now I have not been disappointed. I was particularly impressed with the fact that I could not find the 'line' around the back of my head where he had cut in to create my asymmetrical style (which is normally something quite evident from previous cuts) and liked that he was happy to take some risk with my fine and fairly uninteresting natural hair.
I did find the cost a little exy however I was aware at the beginning and so accepted the cost and was not disappointed by paying it. I didn't feel pushed by Blake who continued to ensure that I was happy with what we were doing.
Having gone back since then, I asked him to change my do and it's even better than the first time! I feel fresh, sassy and the cut is refined and classic. I am actually surprised such a simple classic cut suits me as much as I feel it does. I asked for wash and wear and in all honesty, that is exactly what I got. No fuss. 5 minutes to style in the morning (no joke) and have no need to use product unless I feel to.
Well done Blake :)
