Ive been to this location a couple of times before. People are friendly and have conversations and make you feel welcome. One stylist named Serena is great! Since the first visit though I havent been able to catch her on one of her days (Scheduling conflict on my part). This last visit though makes me a little cautious on going there again. Usually the prices are reasonable and the outcomes are worth it. This time my hair cut (wash and style) came out to $31 dollars! I only wanted a trim which she did take off about an inch or two on my ends and straightened my hair. It was supposed to be $21 dollars but she charged me $10 dollars extra for long hair? Im sorry, but when you only cut an inch or two and take less than 30 minutes to do my hair you do not deserve to charge me extra. This is the first time Ive seen this extra charge, even with my first visit doing highlights I wasn't charge extra or even a steep price, so this is a little too much... Overall environment is friendly, but I think they went overboard this time in charging extra...makes me wish they didnt make commission on customers but rather got an incentitive to do better.
I came to Modesto to visit my aunt from Carmel where I live with my family. My aunt noticed my ugly hair and asked me if I was going grey. I was totally embarrassed since I just got my hair done the week before at a salon in Carmel and had paid quite a bit for it. I told her the story and she suggested that I try her hair dresser Fredrick at Fredrick for Hair. We went together and he diagnosed my hair problem and told me that he had an all organic product that would be perfect for my hair. He said that it would match my skin tone and not wash me out as much as this bleach product the salon I went to used. I said, "Great, work your magic." And he did! My hair looked great. The color correction process and the highlights were wonderful. My husband said it took at least 10 years off !!!! I am so pleased. Thanks so much Fredrick, you truly are the best.
Fantastic Sams on Pellandale Av., Modesto, CA is great!! My husband & I got our hair both dyed & cut yesterday & my daughter got her's done today (9/9/2012). Both my husband's stylist (Donna) & mine (Valentina) were great. They both took the time to listen & make suggestions. My daughter also had Valentina today. My daughter had gone to another stylist in San Leandro, CA who did a horrible job in dying her hair. Valentina spent several hours on her hair to get all the old color removed & new color applied. Then Valentina trimmed the split ends off her hair. We'd recommend this Fantastic Sams & will continue to go there. We feel that one definitely gets what they pay for.
