I have been going to Icicles for about three years now, and I have had an excellent experience each time. I always walk out of there feeling relaxed and rested, and with my freshly cut hair I feel like a brand new girl! Randee cuts my hair, and she's so good that I regularly recommend her to my friends with utmost confidence. My sister-in-law also goes to Randee for cut and color, and also refers many friends to her (all together we've probably sent 8 or 9 of our friends to see Randee for their hair and they've all been really happy with her services.)! Overall, Icicles is a great salon with stylists specializing in a variety of skills. I even had an Icicles employee, Shayla (who moved to the mainland), style my hair for my wedding a couple years ago and I was thrilled with how it looked. I've been very happy with my experiences at Icicles and will keep referring my friends there!
I have to give rave reviews for Pam at Hawaiian Hairlines. I was visiting Kaulia-Kona and had my hair cut at a shop near the harbor. (Tropical Cuts). DO NOT have your hair cut there. Unfortunately for me it was a total disaster of a haircut! As you can imagine I was very upset as my hair had been chopped up. I had noticed Pam's shop on Alii Drive. I stopped and made an appointment with her. She was wonderful. She was able to trim and shape up my hair and really did a wonderful job. She is very professional and really has the skills and technique to style hair. She saved the day for me! Thanks Pam.
We were new to the Kona area, moving from Seattle and I was desperately searching for someone to cut and color my fine, thin, foiled and graying hair. I ran into a woman on the street who had an adorable cut and asked for a referral to her salon. She sent me to Laura and that was 3 years ago and I would not even consider going anywhere else. When I am back in Seattle I always time my appointment with Laura just prior and on my return. The salon is convenient and very relaxing. Laura is not only great at her craft, she is a very fun and warm individual.
