Consider haircare an investment? Voce, then, should top your list. Recognizing that not everyone requires precision cuts, deep knowledge of color science and a roadmap for maintenance, there are options in this town. If you fall into the high mainteance category, as do I, Voce is a great choice. Comments posted here about the wait are surprising, as I've never experienced this. In fact, I've sometimes shown up early -- nearly an hour, in a couple of instances, taking my chances -- and was fitted in. When owner Micky Binion saw how often I would need color, he suggested pairing with one of his colorists/stylists, saving me half of what I would be charged if saw him every visit. The only thing I would change -- and this is an observation of Lexington-based salons in general -- is to develop a competitive advantage and provide an early weekday morning option. Professionals would welcome at least a shampoo/blowout during a weekday, getting us to the office looking like a million bucks. Think Capitol Hill. Think of clientele that bows not to Pure Barre, but to the boardroom. A 6 a.m. slot would be ideal. Voce does offer Sunday hours, a definite plus and an option I use on a regular basis.
I first went to Posh because my normal salon had botched some highlights and were not willing to work with me on getting me back in to fix the problem. Posh had an opening that evening with Jennifer. It. Was. Amazing. Jennifer is a master stylist so she charges quite a bit, but I believe that you get what you pay for and she is worth every penny. There are other stylists in all levels of the field, so you would be able to find someone that doesn't charge as much if that's an issue. The staff is friendly (from my experiences, even when I was running 5 minutes behind schedule), and the salon is very open, but inviting. All of the staff seems to get along and I think that sets a good environment for customers to enter into, instead of a place where no one gets along and they're being catty. They do like to "strongly recommend" products to purchase, but they don't get defensive and weird when you don't want to spend another $75 on shampoo. Even though I regularly go to Jennifer, I would feel comfortable having anyone else in that salon cut my hair.
Seriously now a days it's so hard to find a great hair stylist! I'm so excited that I finally did ! My best friend referred me to Lyndsey after she did an AMAZING job fixing my friend's bad box hair dye job! I waited probably a total 3 minutes before she came and got me. She listened to what I wanted and executed it better than I originally imagined it. She's young but seriously one of the best stylist I have ever had ever been to. Another thing is she explained to me every product she used! I hate when stylist spray a whole bunch of crap in your hair and don't even tell you what it's for! I left the salon feeling amazing with a new look and a new attitude! The salon had awesome, clean & fun atmosphere with some great upbeat music playing. The prices were very reasonable! I love Planet!!
