Tucson >Robert Markley Salon Spa
RUINED MY HAIR!!!!!!!! LIED ABOUT PRICE!!!! WATCH OUT!!!!!. I have very damaged hair and I called Robert Markley because I had heard good things about them and thought they might be able to help me. I specified exactly what I wanted and made it clear that I was not messing around with what I wanted because I have yet to find anyone in Tucson who can actually do hair at least in the FAIR grading area. They assured me that a certain young hispanic guy was just the one for me. Well let's see, he gave me a "massage" and was so rough he practically ripped my already damaged hair out by the roots, he seemed unsure of himself and kept asking me if everything was alright. He then cut my hair and didn't rinse it out, which should be standard since you don't want itchy little hairs on your back and bed for days on end. I had to walk this guy through the entire appointment because he seemed unable to take command and do the haircut himself. Then when he walked me up and down the stairs and didn't wait for me, which I found incredibly rude. Then I walked down by myself and couldn't find him! He had disappeared! I FELT RUSHED the entire time and on edge, it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Then he used a curling iron on my EXTREMELY damaged hair, which should not have even been used if he had done other things CORRECTLY, like not rush me out of the dryer after ten frickin minutes!!! Then he finished and by the time I he was done I looked like a Houston Lady of The Nite with HUGE hair! It was awful!!!! And if that wasn't enough, they tried to charge me almost $30 over what they had quoted me! I will NEVER go to Robert Markley again and I am completely discouraged with this city's Stylists. Do I have to fly to California to get a decent haircut?
BEST SALON IN TUCSON!. I was in love with Markely's Salon when they were in their previous hip 4th Avenue location. And my love for them grows every time I visit them in their wonderful new facility. The place is immaculate. The service is impeccable. They are my favorite salon in town and I recommend them highly.
Are we in New York?. It feels like this Salon/Spa came was plugged into Tucson directly from SoHo in New York or Bond Street in London. Tucson is incredibly lucky to have Robert Markley at our disposal. Walking in through the doors of the Spa, you immediately feel relaxed, soothed and pampered. All is beautifully decorated and of incredibly good taste as if Jonathan Addler himself had created the space. The most beautiful smells of Aveda products are always present. You are always warmly greated by the Robert Markley staff and offered tea, coffee, any bevareage as if you were a close friend coming for a visit. The incredibly pleasant Martin will always put a smile on your face. Thai will then give you the most incredible scalp massage with Aveda essential oils as she prepares you for your cut/color. It is all a very luxurious experience and a very reasonable price (way more inexpensive than most places intown). I have had fortune of having my hair and color with Robert Markley himself and I'm always impressed with his incredible talent. Needless to say, I am treated like a celebrity and walk out looking like one. I just keep my fingers crossed that he continues to stay in Tucson before the editors of Vogue or W find out he's here and they come and take him from us :)
Robert Markley Has the Touch!. Robert Markley has done it again. After a small hiatus living in Chicago, he has opened the beautiful Robert Markley salon on Broadway. His touch is calming, confident and full of expertise. I found my stress melting away as I listened to his melodic suggestions on what I should do with my new cut--I knew I was in the hands of a complete professional. He is so approachable, and yet, so fancy. Handsome and dressed subtly in Prada and Armani, you think that maybe he doesn't belong in Tucson. But I'm sure glad he's here! Walking out of the salon into the dead heat of Tucson, I feel less stress and more confidence. I can't wait to come back! Thank you, Robert!!!
