I'm originally from Newport Beach, CA. The hardest part of leaving the OC wasn't leaving the ocean, it was leaving my hairdresser. After being repeatedly disappointed by the quality of the stylists I found out here, the only solution was to drive back to CA to have my hair done, which I did for 10 years. About three years ago, something came up and I COULDN'T get back to CA for my appointment, and I HAD to get my hair done. After getting several referrals from friends, I decided to give Salon Fontana a try. I made an appointment with Richard, the owner. It was the BEST hair decision I've EVER made! It's a little bit of a drive, from Anthem, but A LOT closer than CA! I get a cut & color every 8 weeks, and every time I go, I end up loving my hair even more! I have never been as happy with my hair at ANY other point in my life, as I have been since discover Richard & Salon Fontana. Thank you Richard!The Salon itself, is small, but it's cute and VERY clean. They sell the BEST products at good prices. I love being able to schedule my appointments online & text appt. confirmations.
Richard Fontana the owner was awesome. I moved from the east coast last year and had yet to find a stylist in the Vegas. I travel a lot and was getting my hair done on the east coast whenever I could, in-between business meetings. I really needed assistance, my last color and cut back east 3 weeks earlier, did not turn out well. I decided to go to Salon Fontana after reading reviews online. I went against my rule of going to a new salon without a recommendation from someone I personally knew but I needed help quick. Richard listened to what had gone wrong with my last color and cut, offering me solutions to fix my hair issues. Needless to say my hair turned out awesome!. Couldn't be happier especially when my very critical 15 yr. old daughter liked it too. I definitely would recommend Richard to anyone who asks or reads this review. He was very knowledgeable about the products and services the salon offered. He answered all my questions in detail explaining how certain products work, which products would help or hurt etc.. I definitely will be a repeat customer.
Sherry Kanani, a master stylist, has joined this salon - and wow what an addition. Ms. Kanani is a magician. My hair looked like a fright wig until I started going to her. She has many years of experience at the highest levels of the industry. She is a former salon owner from Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley, with an all-star clientele of TV news personalities, actresses and actors, politicians and business leaders. She has recently moved here. It's hard to find anyone in the Las Vegas area with her skill level. If you have beautiful hair, she will keep it beautiful. If you have fried, color-damaged or problem hair, she can repair any problem that I've ever seen. She is an absolute wizard at formal hair styles - up-do's, and the like - she can do the entire wedding party. Is there any hair style, cut or color that she can't do? Not that I've seen. Women - old & young - men, kids - she's a whiz with styles for the whole family. Most people don't know it, but she is simply amazing with make-up too. She keeps my hair looking great and healthy.
For the past 7 years I've been getting my hair cut and colored by Mia Grandstaff, who is currently working at Salon Fontana. I think she does an exceptional job! She truly listens to your requests regarding cut, style, and color preferences. She takes great pride in her work and strives to meet your expectations. She has always delivered on my requests. And if afterward, what I wanted isn't working for me, she's extremely accommodating to make sure I'm satisfied. In addition, she does her best to accommodate my appointment requests. Which makes me feel that as a client my business is important to her. She is my go-to-person for advice regarding hair products and hair style how-to's. I receive compliments on my haircut and especially the color frequently. And finally, I enjoy her company. She is friendly and personable. With Mia as your hairstylist you simply can't go wrong. I highly recommend her!
I first learned about Salon Fontana when we moved to Las Vegas in 2002. Richard was listed as a "Top Stylist" in the Las Vegas Magazine. I had tried a couple other local stylists also listed in that article and it had been either a disaster or just ok. Once I went to Richard at Salon Fontana I never went anywhere else...even when we moved to Phoenix for nearly 8 years! My husband and friends thought I was crazy to travel from Phoenix to Vegas for my hair! We have moved back to Vegas now and I'm telling you Richard is the BEST. You will NEVER have a "bad hair day!" He is super talented with color and styling and just knowing what works for YOU. I'm super picky. I promise you will not be disappointed. I have not seen the other stylists there but I have friends who have and they have been very happy as well.
I went in to get a hair cut, it seems that every where I have been no one listens and I don't end up happy with my hair cut, not the case here though. I called and booked an appt. for the same day with Vanessa (the owner), she couldn't have been nicer. I went in and told her my wows and I have to say she is the first stylist that has actually listened. I couldn't have been happier with my hair cut, I will definitely be going back to see her again. I read all the reviews before going in, and I have to say I don't put any stock in any of the bad reviews from the groupon / living social people, I did not find any of them to be true in any way, shape, or form. I would highly recommend Salon Nouveau, and especially Vanessa. Thanks Vanessa, see you soon!Chris D.
So I'm officially in love with Megan from the Fontana salon! I did the awful mistake of bleaching my own hair blonde. I showed up to her salon with orange hair, And she was able to get my hair to a very natural blonde. The next time I went I was super hesitant about cutting my hair due to horrible experiences, But she didn't cut too much or too little! She left my super curly hair, split end free and cutting it in a way that holds shape without having to layer it. I feel super lucky to have found a beautician who knows what she’s doing. The service of the salon is also very pleasing. Everyone is super nice and they try to make you feel relaxed instead of rushing you out around closing time. This place definitely deserves 5 stars!
Cristina's Color Experts10075 S Eastern Ave Suite 115 Henderson, NV 89052(702) 878-42475 starsExceptional – Last Modified: 06/21/2013I had my first visit today with Cristina…I had my first visit today with Cristina. I gave her a picture of the hair style I printed out on line. She did an incredible job. The style required her to use both scissors and razor cut. My hair never looked better. She did such an incredible job. She spent her time focused on me, and talked my thru the entire process too so I would know what she was doing and why. She has 22 years of experience and it shows with the care and quality of her cuts along with her attention to detail. I am really happy with her salon and will go again.Thanks Cristina!
Richard Fontana is amazing and is a true artist!!! I recently got a cut and style and am truly happy with the results. I was referred by my cousin who always had such beautiful cut, style and color so I finally had the honor of meeting Richard. He is an excellent stylist because he not only cares about your hair but he cares about you. I gave him a few ideas and let him do his work. The best part was admiring the finished product and I felt fabulous! He had incorporated what I liked into a tastefully modern cut and style that suits me. I felt very relaxed at the end of my appointment and was eager to get out and show people the new look. Everyone LOVED the results. Thank you again Richard and see you soon!
I have been getting my haircut by one of the most talented hair stylist in all of Nevada. Her name is Sherri Montano. The salon is located inside of Club Sport, where I play squash. I am a busy executive and need to look my best at all times. Sherri fulfills that clean well-manicured look for me. She is very personable, funny and full of enthusiasm. She seems to keep the salon alive with laughter. One thing that I like is the way she is able to schedules me. All I do is call her direct and she sets up my appointment. My schedule changes constantly and Sherri is able to accommodate my busy work schedule. I have referred several of my clients to her as well as my three sons.
