    Best in town for male haircuts

    Tracie Morrison has been cutting my hair for 5 years. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. If you're a male and looking for the best in town then call Cortex. KLH

    Awesome Affordable Salon - Skip Rocks!!‎
    Idaestelle (2 reviews)
    10/24/2009

    Rest assured, the reviews about the unpretentious nature of this salon are true... This salon is entirely laid back and friendly. I formerly had my hair done at Vis a Vis, loved the results but ceased going due to the staggering snootiness of the staff... and clients for that matter. Cortex is far superior. I highly recommend Skip as she is very adept, easy to talk to (no awkward hairstyling silence) and fun. As for the hair, I briefly articulated my desired hair style / color and she completely exceeded my expectations! For those of you with thick, straight hair who want layers that fall naturally, Skip will not disappoint.

    I've been going to Rachel at Cortex for about 4 years now - she does an incredible job! She is the first person I've ever let put color in my hair and I've gotten a lot of compliments. Service is always great - cute little place in VA highlands.

    I just went to Cortex for my first time today for highlights and a cut. Corey did my highlights and for the first time in my life, the color was perfect WITHOUT toner! I went to Brandy for the cut (since I heard she was fabulous with naturally curly hair) and she did an amazing job. I don't think my hair ever looked this good! I am very picky about people doing anything to my hair but they did such a great job that I already scheduled my next appt.....

    I've been going to Cortex for about a year. My wife's been going longer. The people are friendly and I've yet to be dissapointed in a haircut.

    I have used the Va-Hi Cortex many times and love the location and lower-key vibe. Always used John, who has done great work! When you want a fresh style without a ton of glitz, this is the place for you.

    Horrible Hair color / highlight experience
    msgaragegrrl (1 review)
    9/18/2007

    So I loved Cortex and Josh and I had been going there for about 12 years until my beloved hairsylist left (and followed by many others I hear). I was booked with a new stylist who was very very new (out of beauty school) and charged me 225 for my cut and color and royally messed up my hair. I then went back and it was only worse (and the owner was in the chair next to this person on my redo and she never said a word). I left with a hot mess and had to have it fixed elsewhere. It was so bad that when I walked into the next salon there was a discussion amongst the stylists regarding who did that to my hair. They all were in shock when they heard that I paid for the randomly highlighted sections of my hair (it wasn't even uniform.) The person who did my hair was a sweetie and I feel bad that this happened. But the bottom line is that someone that inexperienced should not be at a salon with veterans charging that much.

    I have been going to Cortex for over two years, and I always leave with a GREAT haircut.I'm always getting compliments on my hair now.Tracie is my stylist and the most personable stylist I've ever had. I turned a friend on to Cortex and she sees another designer who she loves. And, the prices are very fair to boot! It's a lovely location as well--hidden away in a delightful VA High neighborhood. I recommend this salon with no reservations.

    I went here to grab some Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo because I ran out. The staff was prompt and friendly. They have a beautiful location in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood.

    Cortex is in such a great lcoation, tucked away in Midtown with a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. It is not very fancy, but the service is excellent. I have had excellent experiences with massages there.

    I've been going to Cortex for 10 years and love it. First at the VA-HI location, then over to Midtown when they opened it. Allison has been awesome, but I've always had great experiences whomever my stylist has been. Just a nice relaxed atmosphere that is so much better than the factory salon that lacks the personal touch.
