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!!
I have lived in Lexington my whole life and recently have been jumping around to different stylists. The last place I went to honestly was terrible and I am so glad this place was great. I called ahead of time to check prices and they weren't too ridiculous. The receptionist (who was very helpful) let me know they accept walk ins... so I walked in. Suzie was my stylus and she listened very well to what I wanted and even looked at a picture that I was using as a reference. Suzie was extremely nice and explained everything she was doing as she went along. I will definitely be going back and look forward to it. My experience was so good that I told all my friends about it before I could write this review haha. Hope this helps someone.
I love this place! I like the location, right off Man of War and when I get done getting my hair styled I can go grocery shopping at the Wal-Mart. The folks at the shop are all so nice and talented too. My favorite is Amy, she owns the shop, but everybody does such great hair that even a person who just walks in will get a great cut and styling. My sister loves going there too. She lives out of town but drives in to Lexington just to get Amy to do her hair. She likes the color of her hair too. Highlights, lowlights, and she gets loads of compliments. If you've just moved to town or if you are just ready for a change, call this place up. I think you'll love it.
Love their goods....However, My sister and myself go to Lex. almost every Thrusday. From 9-11 am. They are all most always out of chocolate, custard filled, long johns. Why? Know it's hard to predict the customer wishes, but if I was running out time and time again. I'd say: They customers like these - maybe I should make just a few more. Or perhaps a daily inventory of what I made vrs. what I should would be in order. We can not call ahead the night before, as sometimes (Not often) we don't go. But, Like today I called at 9:45 to reserve some. They only had one left. Just saying.... I'd still give them a 4 star rating.
It's an okay place, it's clean now, the people are nice if a little weird (who isn't) and the investigated for terroristic activities from the other review, is straight up racist. I'm a regular white boy customer who enjoys convos with the owner (whom I believe said he was from Iran, sorry can't remember) The only bad thing about the place is it's location. It used to be a Winn Dixie till the area went to sh**. They have a decent 'restaurant' with chicken and what not, and a good selection if drinks and snacks as well as a liquor store on the left side of the building separate from the main store.
After a big mistake while bleaching my own hair I went to Planet Salon to have it fixed. Leah was my stylist and she was GREAT! My cut turned out exactly how I wanted it and she worked some serious magic on my orange and yellow head of hair. I need to go back one more time for some more toning and I defintily plan to go to Leah again. She's fabulous! I recommend her highly. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars simply because the music drove me crazy. Tina Turner and Justin Beiber?! Ah....
Bonita's Hair Salon is a very friendly and clean astomphere. Tracy is my current stylist she provides services of weave, simple braids and hair growth. My hair was damage and was breaking off. i had put some haircolor in my hair, which made my hair come out. Tracy was straight forward and advised me about products to use. after 4 months, my hair is healthy and the long. My grandmother, tells Tracy she has miracle hands. LOL Thank you Tracy!!!
My college-age daughter and I are long time customers of Mike's. We have never had to wait; he takes time to talk to clients, and the results are always satisfactory--and stylish. And easy to maintain. The salon is located in a cool 1930's bungalow near campus--great for UK students. Prices are reasonable. You can pay a lot more at other salons and not be nearly as satisfied.
