I live half an hour away from this salon, without traffic. If I could find a closer salon that came even close to its quality, I would go there instead. No other hair salon has been able to take my home chemist personality and difficult, wavy, thin hair and do anything useful with it. Colouring: My stylist calls me the home chemist. One time, I went a little crazy and bleached my locks too soon after dyeing it BACK from bleaching. This was the day before my graduation. The color was bright yellow. They fit me in as an emergency fix, gave me a sandy blonde colour to patch up the botched job, and even left some highlights in to give it dimension. This was with minimal attention, because the colourist actually had another client at the same time, and it still turned out perfectly. My mother has gotten a lot of styling jobs from the same salon, and hers always turn out looking very natural, while masking the grey that's starting to come in. I've seen other colouring jobs that were on the other side of the spectrum--very bold and startling--too, so I would say they have an acceptable range. Styling: I have switched hairdressers a few times; they all have distinct point of view, which sometimes means that the styling wasn't quite how I wanted. I'm VERY low-maintenance, and I've been going to Michelle down at the Arboretum branch for that reason. Before her, I was going to Anthony up at this branch, and he is GREAT, just his hair styles are more for someone who is willing to put in a little work, and I'm a college student. With that said, though, I've had everything from a super short cut to bangs to long, layered hair, and they've done a great job with each. The price range for stylists starts at about $35, and that's mostly for people just starting out at the salon. They're all trained well, however, and I've had two beginning stylists with no problem. The people there are very friendly and receptive, and they always offer beverages and have good magazines for the waiting room, not to mention the comfy seats. :]
I was in need of a hair makeover; but didn't really have an idea of what I wanted. I was ready for a new perspective from the hairdresser I had been seeing for years. When I read a review of 8 the Salon; it described exactly what I was looking for- they assess your features and match your hair style to compliment or bring out your best possible looks with the capabilities of your own hair type. I called to schedule an appointment and found the staff to be very congenial and was able to get an appointment scheduled to fit the timeframe I requested without any hesitation. When I arrived, I found the salon was immaculate, and the staff very personable-everyone was smiling and upbeat, they spoke to the guest and each other with respect- very professional. Brittani was my stylist she explained why my features needed the types of hair styles that we can consider and then taught me how to style the cut, and suggested the products to maintain the style. I am thrilled with the style; and my hair is cut according to its natural tendency to fall, so IT JUST LOOKS GREAT! I can't remember when I have been this happy with my hairstyle. I give 8 the Salon my highest recommendation, I can't say enough for the staff and Britanni in particular- they are the best!
Richard was highly recommended to me by a friend after I moved here from California. He is as talented as anyone in Beverly Hills! Truly knows how to cut (dry "so you can see how your hair moves") and my color went from a flat honey blonde to a shiny, multi-dimensional blonde bombshell! I felt like a movie star walking out of that salon! Watching him cut your hair is like being in the hands of an artist/sculpter. You will NOT be disappointed with your cut and color. When you sit in that chair, and Richard listens, analyzes, and creates your best look, you are indeed investing in yourself, so it is nice to know that you really get your money's worth! The salon is comfortable (separate area/room) for each stylist) and the staff are so friendly (coffee, cookies, water?) Prices are competitive and well worth it. I took my college-daughter to the salon for a cut ... Richard immediately showed her the buildup on her never-colored hair; it was full of waxy, heavy conditioners, and needed a thorough cleansing. He used a clarifying shampoo and rinsed her hair to a glossy silk! He cut beautiful layers throughout her thick hair, and she walked out of there with that "Kim Kardashian" cut she wanted!
I've always wanted to have extensions again but I've had so many bad weaves, I just gave up... I would constantly look around at other women's hair trying to find a glimmer of hope out there for a fantastic weave but no such luck. They were always lumpy or unnatural looking. Last year I started transitioning and as my natural hair grew in length, I became desperate for something where I didn't have to deal with my hair every day. I kept it braided for a while and got tired of that and I didn't really know what I was going to do until I ran across Crystal's videos on YouTube. Her work looked fantastic and I was sold. After checking out her website, I scheduled an appointment and I love my hair. She was fast and the finished product is beautiful. You walk out of her salon feeling like a diva and it doesn't take long before others are dropping their jaws in awe. So if you want to turn heads and break necks, visit Crystal, she is wonderful. I live about an hour and half a way and I don't like to drive but it was well worth the journey and I will be visiting again!
I'm really shocked by the previous reviews and that's putting it mildly! I have been going to My Day Spa for 6 years now and I've always had AMAZING service! Before coming to My Day Spa, I tried out half a dozen nail spas in the area and even got a fungal infection from one...Jay (the owner) knew exactly what to do and it healed rather quickly. I have been to this salon at every possible hour of the day and every day of the week and I'm always pleased with my service. I've NEVER seen any kind of discrimination going on and I'm always a walk-in customer so it's not like they're on their 'best behavior' because I'm there. I would recommend My Day Spa to anyone/everyone and wouldn't hesitate for a moment in doing so! I've been fortunate enough to get to know the owners as people and I gladly call them friends!!! Btw, I've had acrylic/gel nails for 20 years now so I've been through my fair share of salons and they're one of the best! To anyone who has had bad service, give them another chance because everyone has their off days =)
This was my first trip to Yvelisse's Salon and I loved it! I recently moved to Charlotte and was concerned about finding a new hair salon to care for my natural hair. My last hair stylist pressed my hair with the old fashioned hot comb and hot flat iron (not the ceramics, but the ones that actually go on the hotbed). She advised me to try a Dominican shop after I moved, so I did. My mother suggested I try Yvelisse's and I was able to walk right in to have my blow-out done within an hour, but it was on a Tuesday. The salon itself is beautiful and I was greeted and treated kindly from the moment I walked in! I would have given them 5 stars, but I felt the services were a little more costly than what I'm used to. I paid $55 for a wash, condition (I got the $5 one), blow-out and my ends trimmed. Yvelisse actually gave me the conditioning for free, so it would have been $60. However, I will definitely go back because my hair looks and feels wonderful! I would definitely recommend this salon!
Thank you Armis, for five years of fabulous hair! I took a chance five years ago and walked into a salon in search of a new hair stylist; one who could help me keep my hair long but also manage the ever-increasing gray. I found the best stylist I've ever had. Not once have I been unhappy with my hair since that day. And I'm very picky when it comes to my hair. I'm so pleased Armis has opened her own salon. It speaks highly of her professionalism and talent. She always greets people with a smile, asks how they've been and genuinely cares about the response. On visits when I want to make a change in color or cut, Armis listens to me. She has good ideas and takes the time to get it right. Why, I've even had people ask me, "Who does your hair?". It's a pleasure to tell them. And that speaks more highly of Armis than it does my hair. So, for anyone looking for a smart, talented, professional, caring master stylist, I can honestly recommend Armis.
Crys Style's Hair Boutique, is the best. My story is bitter/sweet, I first went to Crystal in the summer, I brought in the wrong hair, being the nice and patient person she is, she starting on my hair installation, but in her mind she knew the hair was horrible, so half way thru I noticed I did not like it either, she took it out. We picked out another hair, the style was gorgeous, after i got home being the person I am, I called with a few complaints, she listen, intendly, but me being hot headed I decided not to go back. But did that change I called her last week apoligized for everything that had occured between us, and told her if she do my hair again, I would sit in her chair, and let her do her craft(gift), and when I saw the end result my weave is flawless, I hate to toot my own horn but toot, toot. I am totally in awe of the results, today;s experience was the best. I love my hair. So my bitter turn to sweet, Thanks Crystal.
I relocated to Charlotte, NC last year and have been unable to find a great hair stylist (and a professional salon) who can do my hair for almost a year now (I have tried 4 other salons). That was until I was referred to Sarah Chambers at 90 Degrees hair salon in Charlotte, NC. From the moment I walked in the door, I experienced professionalism from of all the staff. Sarah was such a breath of fresh air – so professional, stylish, sweet and personable! She did an AMAZING job with my hair – seriously one of the BEST hair styles I have ever had! She was focused on every detail of my hair, took her time and was so helpful with showing me how to style it. Even after she was done blow drying my hair she took time to make sure everything was perfect. I will definitely go again and highly recommend Sarah Chambers and the 90 Degrees hair salon. They have by far the best hair stylist (Sarah) and they are the best hair salon in Charlotte, NC.
BEST HAIR SALON IN CHARLOTTE!!! If you're looking for a competent, seasoned professional stylist to cut, color and style your hair, you have finally found "the" place!!! It's right next to the Common Market in South End - super cool location - the place looks like it's carved right out of Manhattan - brick walls, great lighting, wood floors and high ceilings - loft style - and the stylists know what they are doing!!! I've seen all kinds of customer's young guys, business men, wedding parties, young ladies and woman of all ages. This salon does it all - and I've been a repeat customer for years. Lanie is my stylist and there is not a more competent or gifted colorist and designer that I have ever experienced. You walk in feeling eh okay, kinda bleh, you walk out feeling like a million bucks - like a shot of espresso or two for the ego, I call it a self esteem booster!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
