Success! Thanks for posting your review of Design 1 Salon Spa. You’ve done the world some good today.


Great experience no matter what location I go to. I am always immediately greeted by a smiling face and offered a drink. As far as a men's cut goes, I get shampooed twice and given a hot towel. Nothing beats the quality service that I receive each time I visit one of the locations.

Poor Service

I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody. My hair was purple, they wouldn't refund me or even recognize the problem. I talked with the manager of the salon, and the general manager. They basically ignored the issue. I understand that mistakes happens, but there is no excuse for negligence. Save yourself the headache and pick a different salon with good service. I had a few other issues with them that day also.

Trim gone bad

Went in for a trim and got the worst haircut ever. Stylist was 20mins late and I think she rushed my service. She took about 5 to 6 inches off the very top layer of my hair and then the rest just about an inch. We agree on one inch during my brief consult. It looked like she put a bowl on my head and took a layer off around it. She curled it before showing me and so I was skeptical but really noticed when I went h... view more

Recently I tried Design 1 Salon on Plainfield AVE and it was the best service hands down. I went for a message on 1/23/2012, my appointment was set up for 8:30 AM but I got there early at around 8. Right away they moved it up no questions asked. The customer service was intentional and welcoming. They brought me to a private relaxation room and offered me a beverage. After waiting only a few minutes (Abby) the massa... view more

20 yrs ago this was a nice place to go. Those days are long, long gone. Have their own annoying system they subject clients to when you call for an appt: "That stylist is a level 14A, so you'll pay $20 more and her 18-yr-old assistant will do all the work you pay top dollar for." Owners made bad decision of removing private pedicure rooms - nail techs told me they begged owners not to, but they wouldn't l... view more

I just went on 12-23-11 for a haircut and style from Beth Ann at the Plainfield location. I requested a more experienced stylist and she was the first one available. She was the rudest and most insulting person I have met while getting paying for a service. She was very bossy and spent several minutes telling me I should break up with my boyfriend and move out of town to go to college. I got the impression that she d... view more

Acrylic nails - excellent!!

I have gone to Shelly at Design One on Plainfield for approximately 5 years. She is the best nail tech I have ever found. I hope she never retires!!! Well worth every penny. I get acrylics, but she offers a variety of nail types.
