It is time to change salon!!! I have had terrible experiences in this past year . Starting with my wedding, they have NO CLUE on how to do anything for hair for weddings nor make up. I scheduled appointments for my bridesmaids and my self and 2 of us went for a practice hair and make up and OMG ! Don’t go there trust me on this . Talked to the owner and didn’t seem to care too much . Then had my hair colored and my hair was medium brown and I walked out with JET BLACK . Who screws up this much ? Well Annie was unwilling to fix her mistake and I have had it with unprofessional people . So , going somewhere else !!

The salon seems nice. However, Mikiya butchered my hair. I thought we were on the same page, but it looks like she cut it with her eyes closed. My friend had her hair cut by Mikiya as well, and had the same crooked results.
Maybe someone else would be better....

As a new customer of J Gregory salon, I asked for an appointment with someone who would help me choose a color and cut that was appropriate for me. I needed guidance after some unfortunate color choices and a lot of neglect. Constantine was the answer!
I walked into the salon feeling a little embarrassed about the way my hair looked. Within minutes of meeting Constantine, he put me at ease. He took a few minutes to evaluate my hair and skin tone then told me what he thought I should do. He was experienced, confident, kind ...and absolutely right. I left the salon feeling like a million bucks. I love my new 'do! I will be a customer of Constantine's from now on...and so should you!

I went to J Gregory for the first time after being very disappointed in two other Colorado Springs salons. I had a highlight and haircut with Alyssa and she was nothing short of wonderful! The highlights were perfect and the haircut she gave was EXACTLY what I was looking for!!! I cannot thank her enough and have found my perfect stylist! Bravo J Gregory!

We moved back home to Colorado Springs after a four year absence and I found myself struggling to find a new stylist (my old one moved while we were gone). I walked in to the J Gregory North salon on a whim on my way out of the grocery store and was immediately welcomed by the staff. They were kind and gracious and professional and were able to get me an appointment with David that fit my schedule perfectly.
And what a great stylist David turned out to be!!! I've been seeing him regularly for the last six months and the changes in my hair are amazing! He really listened when I explained what liked and didn't like about my hair and has worked me into a style that I love, get complimented on all the time, and is relatively low maintenance, which with full time school, full time work, and a full time family, is a life saver! David is a consumate professional who really knows his craft and his customers. Barring any unforseen circumstances I will be his client for life and can't recommend him highly enough!!

I have fine, straight hair that shows every mistake. Whenever I go to someone a little less experienced or not as talented, I end up disappointed. I've been going to Constantin for about a year and ever since then, I have LOVED my hair like never before in all my 34 years of life! (And I've been to several really talented stylists in the past). I get compliments on the cut and color all the time.
I love that I can go to Constantine with total trust in his ability. I can ask for something specific, or just let him decide what to do, and I love the result every time! Constantin also has a great personality and will either listen if I feel like talking, or if I don't feel like talking he always has some entertaining stories to share. But he doesn't yap my ear off the entire time. :) That's important to me to have that dynamic.
In addition to Constantin's hair styling genius, the location itself is seriously the hippest salon-environment I've seen in the city so far. To me, that makes paying a high-end salon price all the more worth it.
I truly believe you will love your hair and the entire experience after going to Constantin!

It has taken me over a year to write this review. I went an entire pregnancy and then some with what I would say was the worst hair of my life. Maybe it sounds dramatic but Andrea Brown did the worst job cutting my hair!! I have (had) long fine hair that she had a great time chopping away at with those thinning shears. Which made for over a year of frizzy horrible hair. I read that she was ""cutting edge"" oh she CUTS all right.. ALL YOUR HAIR OFF! This was my 2nd bad experience at J Gregory and I will never be back!

I went to J Gregory today and got my hair cut by Andrea Brown. She was great! She listened to what I had in mind, offered a few suggestions about what would work well with my hair, but in the end left it all up to me. She had great suggestions. It was clear that she wants you to have fun with your hairstyle, yet not try to be someone else. She is bubbly, kind, and I left with a great haircut that works for both work and play! I definitely recommend Andrea at J Gregory.

Went to this salon on a referral from a friend who always has cute hair! She recommended Katelyn Unger. I was a bit hesitant since I have tried so many salons here and in two years, haven't found one that was worth what I was spending. So, I go in and Katelyn really listened to me and what I wanted and made suggestions based on that. She came up with a plan for me to grow out my hair and phase to a more natural color. I was so happy with my hair when I left! i get compliments on my color all the time, by far the most natural looking color I have ever had!! I will def be a repeat customer and will go back to Katelyn over and over! Btw- I go the north location and it's gorgeous and everyone is really friendly!

I had been wanting to try out J. Gregory Salon for quite some time, mostly based on recommendations from friends who raved about the place, so when a groupon popped up I jumped at the chance to go in. I have to say it is the best cut/highlight job I've had thus far and Karla was super helpful and attentive since I really didn't come in with any clear notions of what I wanted except for a change.

Had a Groupon so I felt comfortable trying out a salon with typical costs of higher-end salons. Karla was my stylist and she helped suggest a cut/style that would frame long/thin face nicely, modern/professional look, layers that flip-out. I was very happy with cut. I usually get crown highlights, alternating blond and red/auburn. Couldn't tell that the color was bold enough until she took me outside to view in mirror. Was exactly what I was looking for. Awesome work. Thanks, LC

I thought with all the positive reviews my search for a great salon tech would come to an end but unfortunately that is not the case. Extremely disappointed and have had friends even tell me they hate it too - my husband commented that I got a better haircut when I went to Cost Cutters - with the money spent for a hopeful fabulous haircut unfortunately this was an incredible let down - I am a little baffled with all the reviews that are positive - I am not often one to complain - things could be worse - but I do have to share I'm very surprised with so many positive reviews how I can get a hair cut like I did - I'm sorry to say this was a terrible experience and I will not be back. Sweet young girl Katelyn Scruggs but not happy at all - definitely didn't get what I paid for.

Jason at J Gregory is knowledgeable and talented. My previous stylist had cut and colored my hair for the past 15 years; needless to say, when she moved out of state I was reluctant to go to a new salon. After asking many friends and colleagues for recommendations, I decided to go to Jason. He exceeded my expectations and gave me a fresh new cut and color. The overall experience at J Gregory is plesant and I have highly recommended Jason to family and friends.

Katelyn Unger at J. Gregory is fab!
I read many online reviews and decided to go with her since others had a positive experience, and her service and professionalism exceeded my expectations. Since I was a new customer she gave me a free hair shine cleaning while I was waiting. She took her time, listened to me, and gave me a great new cut based on my facial features and needs.
After my new cut I was asking how to style it and she invited me back the following week for a free styling consultation. I brought my own products, wasn't pressured to buy new ones, and she worked with me until I was able to use a diffuser and get the maximum potential out of my hair products.
In short, J. Gregory is a top-rate salon, and Katelyn in particular is professional, talented, and has the ability to match a new cut with what will look best on you in particular. I highly recommend.

Karla Pankonin did the most wonderful job on my hair! I am very picky about getting my hair cut and dyed and Karla knew exactly what to do. I generally stay true to my stylist in San Francisco and have traveled across the country just to get my hair done by him, now that I have found J. Gregory Salon and Karla I have a new stylist I would travel cross country for. I was extremely nervous about going anywhere else but after speaking with the receptionist and being paired with Karla I knew I had found my new salon. Karla did an amazing job on my hair and has a wonderful eye for matching my facial structure with the cut creating one of the best haircuts I have ever received. She was very thorough with the dye process and mt hair couldn't look better. I am so pleased with finding J. Gregory Salon the whole staff were exceptionally pleasant and made my wait (about 2 min) not only enjoyable but well taken care of too. The Salon is wonderful inside and the ambiance truly shouted that they care about hair. I even made an appointment for my fiance (who has unmanageable hair) and when he came back I was blown away by the way his hair looked! He has never looked so good and is the only place I am letting him go for his hair again. Once again the one who completely transformed my fiance was Karla. She is truly an artist and knows exactly how to transform the worst hair into gold. I am only ever going to Karla she has the magic touch and is the only one I will entrust with my hair. Thank you so much Karla and I look forward to my next appointment.....I only wish my hair grew faster so I could experience the joy of Karla's amazing skills and The wonderful staff at J. Gregory Salon more often!!!

Constantine Prajescu knew the perfect looks for both my son and for me. Constantine had in mind the ""finished product"", before I even reached his station. It was the perfect combination of color-blend and layered cut, that put into place a more long-lasting, chic hair style. In between appointments, I am not randomly touching up roots nor wasting money on a cheapo trim somewhere, because the finished product holds together as one well-blended final look. Constantine is also amazing at kids' cuts and did a stylish, efficient and cost-effective style for my boy.

I made the mistake of going to someone else at a different salon for a hair cut because it was convenient instead of going to my usual stylist, Katelyn at J. Gregory. I asked this guy to just trim my hair and maybe have some pieces that frame my face in the front. He either misunderstood what I said or he completely ignored what I wanted. He decided to give me weird layers all over and the ""face framing"" part ended up being really short (almost bang length) pieces that were an inch and a half shorter on the right side than the left. He also made a lot of blunt cuts so it looked really choppy. When he was done I told him that it was a lot shorter and different than we had discussed and he told me ""it will grow out."" Gee thanks. Needless to say, I cried a few times over the next few days every time I tried to style my hair.
I went to J. Gregory to see if Katelyn could do anything. I thought she might be irritated that I ""cheated"" on her but she was very understanding and told me she could help me get back to normal. I expected her to soften the edges a bit and maybe get me back to normal after a little hair growing and a few hair cuts. She ended up completely fixing what that other guy did in one hair cut! I didn't expect to love it but I do! She truly turned lemons into lemon aid. I love my new look and have gotten several compliments. I will never stray again!!
If you're looking for a great stylist who will listen to you and do what YOU want then she's the one for you. She also does incredible highlights. I'm a dark brunette turned dirty blonde through her skills and I feel that it looks very natural. Even the dude who butchered my hair complimented my highlights before he got scissor-crazy. :)

I never spend a lot of money on my hair, but, bought a groupon and was so pleased I did!! Jason was polite, informative and non-judgemental when talking about what to do with my hair. He highlighted, cut and educated me on how to take care of my hair and why the cut would work better for me. Seriously, this is probably the best haircut I've ever had and that's saying a lot because I'm 47. Try this salon and this stylist, you will not be disappointed.
