Awesome, awesome, awesome!! I took the advice of the reviews and decided to drive all the way from West Knoxville to go there. They have coupons on the internet, if you are a first time client, and there was one for 1/2 off color service. I was scheduled with Katie and she is worth every penny!! I came in with a whole mess of problems (I died my hair black, then freaked and have had highlights pulled thru for the last year). My highlights were very streaky, and consisted of 3-4 different colors.. all of the "bronze" nature. My fault for 'cheating' on my stylist and cheaping out at Aveda... I told Katie I had no idea what to do-- just something HAD to be done!! She knew exactly what to do, and the result was gorgeous!! I will never see anyone else!! She tackled my hair perfectly in terms of the blow dry (I have extremely curly and frizzy hair, not to mention thick!), too. It came out really straight, without a bunch of product and 20 mins of having the straightening iron ran through it. It seemed really empty when I went in there, which was a little strange. But it was a Monday afternoon. It was nice though to not have to wait for my hairdresser-- she was right at the reception area when I came in. Also, the decor is pretty cool-- very simple and modern. I got a spray tan from them too & it is beautiful I had a great experience overall. Oh, their prices are listed on their website, and they are VERY reasonable. Highly recommended!
I have been searching for a good nail tech in this area for a year. I have tried so many and as soon as I leave I have to file them or do something to them. Not to mention I didn't get my haircut for months because no one did what I ask. I walked into Paradigm just to start tanning. I ended up staying ALL day having my nails done and my haircut. Tonya is great with hair. She did exactly what I wanted and was fun. Best haircut in over a year. The tannning bed selection is wonderful and very resonable. Now for my nails...I have never been so pleased. I have had my nails done for 16 years and Marcaira did the best job EVER. They are beautiful and I have not touched them. No need to file when I leave. They are perfect. The new owner is just a joy. The entire atmosphere is one that I have been looking for. I won't go anywhere else.
Loved Paradigm Salon. I have been to a lot of salon's in a lot of places, but through them all, my experience at Paradigm was by far the best. I was referred to Katie by one of my co-workers. I am very particular about the color of my hair, therefore, I really trusted my co-worker's reference. Katie was very thorough and knew exactly what I wanted when I came for my consultation. She gave me her honest opinion, yet many different color combinations that I would like. Usually, I get very scared to look, however, the whole time Katie was coloring my hair, I was so anxious. I, just like my co-worker, now refer everyone who is looking for a good, Intelligent hair colorist to Katie. I will be telling all my friends to try her.
