Love Patrick! I've been going to Patrick McGuire for years. His cutting and layering techniques are amazing. Patrick is also wonderful about explaining and showing me tips and tricks that I can do to style my hair at home. I also totally enjoy his new 'space'... the huge mirror and open area feels very relaxing. Highly, Highly Recommend! 5 Stars!!!
I told Patrick this as he was cutting my hair so I mean it when I say - he gives a shit about my hair! Trying to find a stylist after moving back to Raleigh was overwhelming. Patrick immediately made me feel like he cared about what I wanted and took the time to ask me questions about my hair, what worked and didn't work for styling it, and what I was looking for on this visit. Not just the awkward "so what are we doing today" question where you feel rushed answering it in too much depth or detail at other places - when you feel like you're on the clock. He listened to me and really took the time to talk which made my hair anxiety decease exponentially! He then spent even more care cutting my hair, making sure that each curl fell right, was aligned, and kept with the shape I had talked about. For anyone who has had a terrible hair cut or just gets anxious about the potential for a terrible haircut, Patrick is your stylist. He puts you at ease with his laid back attitude but then shows his dedication and focus as he concentrates on getting your hair to look perfect. Can't say enough, I'm really happy I found him and my hair looks great!
I just want to say how much I love my haircut! You have a real gift! My husband was blown away by how great it looks, and said he's never seen it "not poofy." :) Thanks so much, it was great meeting you today and I can't wait to show my friends!
Patrick has cut and colored my hair since his time at Douglas Carroll Salon in Cary back in the 90's, and I've followed him ever since! Patrick keeps up with the latest trends for cutting, coloring and highlighting hair by taking classes all over the U.S., so your hair is safe in his very capable hands. He's very meticulous, and you won't be disappointed when you leave his salon. His new location at Salon AG is very centrally located whether you're in downtown Raleigh or Capital Blvd. I drive from Garner. If you make an appointment with Patrick, you will not leave disappointed!
By far the best stylist I've ever had! The color is always perfect and I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments I receive from strangers on my cut.
Patrick is one of the most detail oriented stylists I have ever met. During my first visit he spent a good amount of time just combing through my hair to see how it naturally flows, as well as how my skull is shaped. Immediately, this showed me that he is extremely tedious, knowledgeable and patient in working with each and every customer. Using his experience, Patrick is not afraid to tell a customer what styles would or would not work best, based off their individual features, rather then just trying to blindly satisfy a person by giving them what they want which is something I respect that immensely. Additionally, on my second visit not only did he remember in great detail what we had discussed and done prior but in the time between the two visits he took it upon himself to further educate himself and work on his craft to improve MY hairstyle. For my particular situation, this was everything from learning more about the current style, showing me videos on how to best comb and style my hair and experimented with which products would work best for me. Above all else, Patrick is an extremely warm and welcoming person who can make you feel like he has known you for years on the first visit and I would not even consider working with someone else.
