I had a hair appointment with Rebecca at Íona Salon in Fort Worth on Thursday, October 27th and it was an awesome experience to say the least. This salon focuses on environmentally friendly products and practices as well as natural organic solutions for your hair. They believe that natural is best for healthy hair, and I agree! I am going to document the progress of how my hair evolves from how damaged it is now to healthy and beauty pageant-ready next April! I am convinced that Íona Salon will be able to get my hair looking absolutely stunning by pageant weekend. When I first walked in to the salon, I was welcomed with a warm and friendly smile. The salon has a very earthy vintage feel to it, which goes along with their commitment to stay true to their ideals of authenticity and simplicity with natural practices. I felt right at home and felt that I could trust this salon with taking the best care of my hair. I've had some scary experiences in hair salons in the past, so it was so refreshing to come into a place that cares for the environment as I do AND that understands exactly what I am hoping to accomplish. There's nothing worse than going somewhere for a haircut where you can smell so many chemicals and your hair-dresser can't speak proper English. You do get what you pay for. After being welcomed and situated with a glass of water, Rebecca talked to me about what my goals were with my hair. She asked me how much I style it and what my current hair care regiment was. She then began with an amazing scalp massage, which she explained to me comes with every visit to her salon. WOW! Scalp massages help get more blood flow to the hair follicles to get more nourishment to the newly forming hair... not to mention they feel absolutely wonderful! Rebecca then gave my hair a deep conditioning treatment before trimming all the dead ends off of my hair while explaining to me that your hair will not grow if the ends are split. She stressed the importance of getting hair cuts every six weeks to keep the hair healthy and allow it to grow longer. After trimming my hair, Rebecca decided that she would style my hair to accentuate my natural curls. She introduced me to a really cool natural organic hair product made from marshmallow root that would tame the frizz and bring out the curls. After applying the product, she showed me how to properly use a diffuser on my hair, and voila! It is great to know that I don't have to put tons of chemically-laden mousse in my hair to get a similar but inferior affect. And, this style required very little heat!

I've never had a relationship with my hair stylist before, but it sure is nice to have personalized care. We had some very meaningful conversations, and I am really looking forward to going back in December. I will be getting my hair trimmed and conditioned at Íona Salon every six weeks as well as using a high-end shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate free and taking a good B Vitamin supplement to promote hair health. Rebecca also recommended that I not wash my hair every day. She explained how the natural oils from your scalp are the best natural conditioning therapy for your hair. I will do my best to follow this, but I have to wash my hair after I work out! :) I am very excited about my partnership with Íona Salon and hope they continue to thrive and grow. This salon is truly a diamond in the rough and definitely "in harmony with nature." Rachael Lynée Burns Miss North Texas International 2012 http://www.missnorthtexas.com

Review for JUSTIN- I am a platinum bleach blonde with long hair and hot pink tips. You can ONLY imagine the kind of damage that can do to your locks. On top of the abuse I do to my mane, I spent 2 weeks at the beach flinting around in the ocean like I was a mermaid. When it was time to return from my fairytale life and come back to Tejas, I took one look in the mirror and realized that my pink had faded almost completely, my blonde was fried and my hair was in complete shambles. I am BEYOND picky about my hair and usually just do it myself (so that I can't wish ill upon others who mess it up) but this was beyond what I could repair. The roots were even like 2" long and I looked like a lot lizard instead of the hot mermaid that I thought I did. It was horrific. So I put on a Rangers cap and called Rock N Roll Hair. Justin was able to get me in immediately. I made the appointment for an ombre 'do. When I got there, he TRIED to run his fingers through my hair... no dice. His eyes were wide and shocked (probably disgusted) at the immense damage I had done. I told him what I wanted and he very kindly and gently said, "no way!" He could read me like a book and could tell that I would be sorely disappointed going from platinum to adding so much brown. He recommended a subtle transition with lowlights and to soften up the blonde. I just took his advice and rolled with it. The mocha didn't take like we had hoped because the bleach on my hair just ate it up. It was so porous. As he was TRYING to brush my hair, it was so damaged (on my account) that it got tangled and lost in his brush. He recommended that we trim the ends to bring it back to a healthy level. I admit, I cried. I have been growing my hair out for 3 years. It has never been this long, but what's the point in having long unhealthy hair?! He was so sweet and so reassuring through the whole process. He calmed me down and made me feel so much better about it. He trimmed my hair and it looked sooooo much better. I went back today (a week later) to add the mocha lowlights and he did such an amazing job! He is such an artist! He is quick and fluid! I was so happy that I gave him a huge hug (totally freaked him out! hahaha) and left with the biggest smile on my face! He also does the BEST blow dry and style. Seriously, Justin is the best. I love him and totally recommend him. I had to sign up for YELP just to recommend him! <3 He's awesome!!! Thanks, Justin, for making me feel pretty again!!!
Extraordinary Looks Salon is THE place to get your hair done in the metroplex! The stylists are incredibly polite and truly understand the value of excellent customer service. This salon isn’t simply a haircut and color. The experience of the owner in make-up, eyelashes, and hair treatments, transform this salon into an all around beauty center. When I first walked in, all I needed done was a cut and color. I wanted to go from highlights to an all over blonde color. The owner, Victoria, then shared her expertise in other hair treatments such as cashmere luminescence and a new Inphenom deep conditioning treatment. I decided to try the deep conditioning treatment and it was the best one I’ve ever had. It left my dyed hair soft and smooth for weeks. The color was just as I imagined and the new nontraditional cutting techniques left my hair looking like a celebrity’s. I was so hooked that I also decided to get my eyelash extensions here. Again, the standards Victoria holds herself to, are impeccable. She worked on my lashes until every single one was perfect. So, if you want to feel like a celebrity, Extraordinary Looks Salon is the place for you. Amanda S.
I've had a lot of bad hair experiences in my life time, to the point were I just couldn't stand walking into a salon to get it done. I was pretty nervous since it'd been over a year for a decent cut, and I was afraid I'd have a lot of unanswered questions as per-usual. After making a few phone calls to another salon downtown, with no call backs or even take the time to answer the phone, I figured I'd give Bee's Knee's a try. When I walked in, I was greated with a smile and asked if I wanted a beverage. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. Upon getting my cup of coffee, I met Sarah. She was pure delight. I had a general idea of what I wanted, she made it crystal clear what would work. I asked my usual questions and now I feel I have all the answers for styles and cuts that would work. It's not like any other salon I've been to, and it was well worth the wait and courage to try. Hands down, I will direct anyone looking for a friendly staff and cute atmosphere to go give Bee's Knee's a try. I will definately be back again. This is my go to!
Congratulations!! to Terry and Salon Purple. Terry has been a Master Stylist for several years. He worked at a fabulous salon in the area and had so many clients, he had to do some at home! Opening his own salon was the natural progession in his line of success. Terry is a wonderful Christian person with a Fantastic family! He has been my stylist for about 10 years. I will never go anywhere else. Terry does a wonderful job cutting and coloring my hair exactly how I want it. He is extremely knowledgable about what he does, and is up to date with the latest trends and techniques. Terry is a great listener. He is interested in giving you precisely what you want, and will work with you until you are satisfied. I have 2 teen boys and he does their hair, as well. They, too, are always satisfied with their cut ( and you know how kids can be about their hair). The salon is beautiful and inviting and so are the people! The best salon in the metroplex by far!!
This salon is truly amazing. Not only is it in a great location, but the staff that make this place amazing are so sweet! The owner is amazing! She makes you feel right at home. You are welcomed into a beautiful building with lots of color and natural sunlight. There are multiple cosmetologist's to choose from. All with credits and years of experience. I personally see Tony Alonzo. He has worked magic on my hair! Always leaves me breathless! Something I personally enjoy, having refreshments while I am getting pampered. It you want to turn your look around, try something different, or just need a touch up or trim, I wouldn't recommend you go anywhere else! Haute Hair Salon is my home! Maybe I will see you there one day! My stylist offers discounts as well. Find his page on Face Book. Tony Alonzo.
The salon is adorable, the people are great. Nestled away "on the bricks" of Camp Bowie Blvd, this salon really is the bees knees! They have online booking, which is great because you can make your appointment 24/7. The salon is in what appears to be an old house. They have vintage-y furnishings and each stylist has his/her own station done in their own personal style. I have gone to Mandy to get my hair done for years. She is amazing because she is such a good listener and communicator. She will take your idea and give you her advice, and transform your hair! She is the only one I trust to do my hair. She can give you a change without causing you to freak. She is a wonderful stylist and I love this new-ish salon! (Not sure how long they've been open.)
I went to Bombshell Beauty Factory a few weeks ago. I had my eyelashes tinted and an eyebrow wax. The last time I had my lashes tinted was before my wedding at a place in Ft. Worth that was considered very high class. Let's just say the painful burning in my eyes stopped me from ever doing it again. Jenni at Bombshell was very careful and concise, letting me know each step she was taking. Needless to say I had no burning or pain and my blonde lashes are still jet black 4 weeks later. It was obvious that she puts time, love, and dedication into everything she does. The staff made me very comfortable and I didn't have that awkward feeling you get at some snooty salons. I love this place and will be back.
A trendy New York looking salon BUT with awsome cutting. Terry has cut my hair several times and always gets it to look it's best. I am disabled and cannot lift my arms for long so my cut has to work with my hair. He just has the knack of working with my natural wavy hair so it is easy and quick for me to do. He is one in a million that has the ability to study my hair and cut it right. I have been to salons in Honolulu (cutter studied with Sasson, that's what he said!), New Orleans a lady from France, Sav. GA, Joel & Co. ,Tampa Bay, Fl, Tony & Guy, Baltimore, MD, etc. and rarely do you find someone with Terry's knack. He is totally awsome with coloring too. Ya Gotta go and try him out.
Today was my first visit to the Bee's Knees and let me just tell you- the name fits! This place is great. The receptionist is extremely helpful and friendly. The salon is easy to find, clean, and hip without being pretentious. My stylist was Mandy and she was THE BOMB.COM. Seriously- I got a scalp and shoulder massage, the best shampoo of my entire life (trust me... they do this thing with a hot water towel to seal in the conditioner and it is REDUNK!), a super sexy bob haircut (with lots of options for different sytles), and she's super fun to talk to. She even showed me how to do a proper Victory Roll- which I didn't think would even be possible with a bob! So great!
