In short: Loved my experience at Amy's. She took care to listen to me and get the cut right, and it was reasonably priced. Friendly service too.

Called at 3.15pm today (Sunday) and got an appointment for 4.15.

Both she and the men in the salon were all smiling and friendly. She asked if I minded waiting ten minutes and I didn't. In this time she gave another woman a quick trim, and one of the men put the cover thing on me and offered me coffee or tea. I read a magazine.

I washed and straightened my hair before I came in and printed out a picture of Carly Rae Jepsen as a reference. I already have the straight fringe and hair about her length, but the last time I got it cut I didn't ask for layers so it was looking very boring. My fringe was also getting in my eyes.

I told Amy I wanted long layers like the picture but didn't want too much taken off overall. I also told her I want my fringe straightened out but kept below the eyebrows. Note: the amount of hairdressers I've said this to and still ended up with it above the eyebrows is high. I've also had many crooked fringes.

Amy cut my hair very quickly, but took care to measure it out against each side to make sure it was even, and held her fingers at the length she was planning on cutting the layers to, to ask me if it was okay first. LOVED that.

She asked if I wanted blunt ends or choppy and I said "a bit choppy" and she said "yeah, it's more natural looking that way!"
Once the cut was done she asked if I would like her to curl the ends under to look like the picture and I said "sure" so she spent a few minutes with the straighteners. It looks pretty close to the picture! Then she asked if I'd like some product and I said "yes" so she put in Moroccanoil which smoothed down the frizzy bits and added shine.

All up it took about 20-25 minutes and she charged me $45. That's about what I am used to paying in Hawkes' Bay for a dry cut, and way less than most of the prices for ladies cuts around. (I was googling before I found this subreddit and most places seemed to be charging $75!).

Before I left Amy took my details and told me to come back for a free fringe trim.

I am really happy with the cut, the attention to detail, the convenience, and the service.
