Ok let me just first say Charlene is an amazing stylist. My mom referred me to Charlene in mid 2012, and every time she's done my hair since then I have always been amazed with the results. After countless trips do different salons and stylists and always leaving disappointed or not having quite what I wanted, I can say with confidence that I have never left Charlene's with any kind of disappointment. I'm a client that always wants something different, (so far anything from ombre, dark hair, light hair, full highlights, glazes, long hair to a pixie cut, dark hair to platinum blonde), so I have seen first hand both how talented and versatile her work is. I have never been rushed, Charlene pays 100% attention to her clients and takes as much time as possible to work with me and my requests and ideas to make sure leave as happy as possible- and with my hair in the best condition possible (I’m a platinum blonde, with HEALTHY thick hair, and no more hair loss or breakage than with my natural brown color, that’s my experience though, platinum blonde isn’t always for every hair type.) My mom is also blonde, and was brought to a blonde shade by a very expensive stylist who was over-processing her hair horribly causing it to become brittle and break off. Ever since her first visit with Charlene, her hair has been restored to its 100% thickness (only 1.5 years later) while still maintaining her blonde color. She gets Keratin treatments 2-3 times a year, a process that I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about, but in my experience from watching my moms hair be restored, they have been nothing short of amazing. I should also add that I have seen Lauren’s work and it is gorgeous as well, and her men’s haircuts are fantastic (my dad is able to grow his out slightly without getting that ‘awkward’ look). Overall this salon definitely deserves 5+ stars, and I will remain a devoted client.
I feel so lucky to have found Charlene 7 years ago after moving to CT. I have naturally curly hair and have had such trouble finding a stylist that knows how to cut it. I would wait until I made trips home to CO so that my sister-who is a hair stylist- could cut it. When I first met Charlene I knew she was a keeper! She had beautiful naturally curly hair herself, she was warm and friendly and passionate about what she did. She continues to amaze me with her incredible talent and I highly recommend her. Her salon is bright and cheery and the ladies there are all so welcoming. I am moving out of state and am not looking forward to starting another hair stylist search. Hmmmm maybe I will just have to fly back to CT and see Charlene a few times a year!
Charlene Elizabeth's Salon is guaranteed to exceed your expectations! The moment I cross the thresh-hold I become priority; they hang up my coat, carry my belongings and hand me a coffee every time. Charlene and her staff are simply amazing! They are warm and friendly and very professional. The atmosphere she has created is so relaxing and charged with creativity-you never want to leave. The services that are provided uphold the highest standards of excellence. I always leave feeling refreshed and renewed and looking as beautiful as ever! I recently brought my husband along with me for a facial and a pedicure...let's just say he has now become a regular! I highly recommend Charlene Elizabeth's Salon.
