I have been going to Cheri(the owner) for about 10 years now, and I absolutely LOVE her! She has always done a fabulous job and I have always gotten compliments on my hair since going to her. This salon has a friendly, laid back atmosphere...not stuffy and way overpriced like most Birmingham salons. If you want a great cut, color or both this is the salon for you!!



I love Kenneth Clayton Salon!

I lost my stylist of 10 years and, in a panic, was trying everything. I got a suggestion about KCS from a friend and took a chance. I have NEVER had a better experience at a salon. The service is excellent, the salon is relaxing and the prices are out of this world. Cheri is my stylist - and I will not go anywhere else. I have had more compliments and have more "hair confidence" than I have ever had... I wish I had know about it sooner!! I rave about it to anyone that will listen!!




Great salon! Great experience! I have been to several salons in the city and now I have finally found my place! I recommend both Cheri and Katie. I have received many compliments after both have done my hair.




I have been going to Cheri for a long time and have had nothng but great service. She not only is my sylist but is a good friend. Kenneth Clayton is a great place you will get great personal service.



Very Pleased

Getting my hair done is my only "splurge". When I went to the salon the first time, I didn't get the haircut I wanted. I went back and Cherie fixed it at no charge. She takes her time and talks at length about what I want and makes sure that we are on the "same page". I have enjoyed the experience and will continue to give them my business.



Great Haircut

I have been in the Birmingham area for 3 years and been having a hard time trying to find someone to cut my hair the way I like. I went to Kenneth Clayton to Cheri and she did a fantastic job. Took a lot of time and did exactly what I asked for. Also very reasonably priced. I have finally found a salon I love!



Curly Head

If you have curly hair & I mean the wild and frizzy kind than Kenneth Clayton Salon is the salon for you. I have tried just about every salon in this town and have always been disappointed until I found Cheri. Lets face it hairdressers say that they can cut curly hair, but it is truly a God given gift! Cheri has the gift! Not only does she do a fabulous cut, but she is an expert colorist. The entire staff is wonderful and pleasant! I love the calming atmosphere, comfy sofas & the awesome magazine selection. Cheri has been cutting & coloring my hair for a couple of years now. So if you are shopping for a new salon, than look no farther. Trust me I have tried them all and finally found the BEST!



Cheri is the BEST!! She's bee...

Cheri is the BEST!! She's been doing my hair for about 8 or 9 years now and it always comes out great! I'm definitely picky and hard to please, but Cheri never acts frustrated (even though I know she is;-) ) and always aims to please. If you are looking for a true professional who takes pride in her work and likes to have a good time doing it, then you need to call Cheri!!



Master at Color

Wow! Getting your hair cut and/or colored is always nice and relaxing, especially when you have a great stylist like Cheri. I have been going to her for over 5 years and she's fantastic. From the time you walk into the door, the staff is very attentive, always making you feel welcomed and comfortable. Of course, the coffee/soft drink bar and the snacks are nice too!

I love the red hues and Cheri is a master at color, always choosing something that compliments me and willing to change things up for the appropriate season.

If you're looking for a great hair stylist, look no further. Give Cheri a call. You won't be disappointed!



Exceptional Service!

I started going to Kenneth Clayton Salon about a year ago, using a gift certificate given to me by a friend. As it turns out, that was a gift that just keeps on giving! After the great cut that I received from Cheri and the friendly service from her staff, I was hooked. KCS is highly recommended by me!



A Million Bucks

Cheri is the owner and does a fabulous job. She is great with color and cut. She will discuss your needs and she makes you feel like a million bucks!

I highly suggest her and Kenneth Clayton Salon.



The best salon in town!

I have been a faithful customer of Cheri's for over 3 yrs. When she left another salon to start her own business I followed. Cheri and her crew really put their heart and soul into each and every customer. From the moment you book your appointment, you feel the warm and friendly demeanor that you will get from her salon. She is a good listener, detailed, and a master at her craft. I am one who is constantly changing hair style and colors, and Cheri always recommends the best styles and colors for the face. You will make friends for life like I have! Highly recommend Kenneth Clayton for your salon needs.

I'm sold!

I have only gone once but plan to make Kenneth Clayton Salon my salon of choice. The two color foil came out perfectly...not grey, not brassy, ...very natural. Cheri was great to talk to and she understood exactly what I wanted. I bought this opportunity at a silent auction for the Shelby County Humane Society...and ended up not only helping homeless dogs and cats, but finding a great hairstylist!




I would like to thank Kennth Clayton salon for every thing they have done for me. Cheri is great. I have been to her a few times now and have no intentions on changing. She does a great job and every one there is extremely nice. I really recomend for you to try in.




Great hair salon!

I've been going to KCS for almost a year now and always love the cut & colors I get. Not only does the salon have a warm and inviting atmosphere, but Cheri consistently does an excellent job of listening to exactly what I want done and then actually does it. She is very professional and an exceptional stylist. Also, her prices are extremely reasonable, especially for the area of town the salon is located in. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone!



Always Amazing

I have been getting my hair cut and colored by Cheri for over 10 years. She is fabulous. I started going to her in high school and continue to use her now that I am a mother myself. She has fixed my hair when I thought that I could do it myself and even did my hair for my wedding. She is fabulous! Cheri's knowledge of color is amazing!! I never leave there without a smile on my face! She is the best around!



Kenneth Clayton Salon is the best!

I have been going to Cheri for years and she is absolutely one of the best people in this business. She is very detail oriented and always tries to please everyone (which is very hard to do in the hair business)! A+ for service, speed and price!



KCS Rocks!!

I always look forward to my appointments at Kenneth Clayton Salon. The atmosphere is relaxing, the prices are competitive, the staff is friendly, the water/soda fridge and coffee bar are always stocked and my stylist Cheri is the best! She is very honest about what cuts and colors will and will not work and she's right every time. I never really liked my hair until Cheri started cutting it. Now I get compliments on a consistent basis and even strangers will ask where I get my hair cut. That's a great feeling! I highly recommend KCS for a truly fantastic salon experience.




I truely look forward to getting my hair cut and colored at Kenneth Clayton Salon. Everyone there is so polite and professional everytime I call or drop by. It is a nice, laid back atmosphere where anyone can feel at home. I have and will still recommend my friends to visit this salon for all of their hair care needs!!




I would highly recommend Kenneth Clayton Salon...they are extremely professional and really take time with each customer to achieve the desired results! I have been a client of Cheri's for several years and was thrilled when she decided to open her own salon...I KNEW IT WOULD BE FABULOUS! I was in a wedding in Tuscaloosa a few weeks ago and had numerous people stop me at the reception and ask me who did my cut and color!!!!!!!!!
