Don't waste your time... The sign outside says clear as day "$25 Wash n Set for natural hair" I also called before hand and was quoted the same price. I went in with my curly fro and requested my service. The shampoo girl was more concerned with running her mouth than paying attention to what the hell she was doing damn near ripping my hair out with a fine toothed comb as she attempted to comb it out dry. After washing and raking my hair a few times I was sent to get my hair rolled by another girl. She was good. I barely felt her doing it and before I knew it she was done. I sat under the dryer. I know us girls hate sitting under the dryer, but I was under for way more than an hour. I watched a lady who had been seated to dry after me have her hair unrolled, blown out, pressed,cut, and styled while I'm still drying. When I was finally released from the hot box I was blow dried and burnt a few times. It seemed like my flinching and "ouch's" weren't enough to give her the hint that she was blowing my scalp at close range instead of my hair. Then she decided to flat iron it after all the heat that had already been applied. When I was finally finished I was satisfied with the end result but I was charged $45. I was pissed. If the extra charge was for the bump, she coulda kept that because I didn't ask for it, and they had already given me a price. The entire time I was there they were talking crap about the customers in Spanish. I may not be fluent, but I picked up on a lot of insulting things. Just rude. Granted that every customer is styled by Miss Monica herself, it was an awful experience. I left with a tender and burnt scalp and a style that I could have achieved at home for the price it costs to plug in my flat iron.

I called last minute to see if I could walk in and get a quick haircut. It was my first time here and I loved it!! My first impression is that it reminded me of the small town salon my mom took me to growing up. I like businesses that are personally owned better due to the quality of work and better service just from experience of going to many salons. Caitlin was so friendly and easy to talk to and really knew what I needed done with my hair even though I wasn't really sure myself. The shop seemed very clean and maintained when I walked in. The decor was very girly in a way, but I really liked the charm of it. I feel that, overall, the service, cleanliness, setting, and price was excellent! I'm happy I was able to find this place in such a short notice. Thank you again Caitlin!
Love the interior of Savarnas & the atmosphere the beauty spa. Outstanding Results. On the weekend, I chose:Face Threading (Face massage – complimentary) – Superb!Eyebrow Threading (eyebrow massage- complimentary) – Go ahead! Waxing (full arms & legs) – Clean One.The threading expert was pro, skilled & so fast. She did a great job with the shape of my brows. The place is clean, spacious & bright. During waxing my legs & arms, she made me relaxed. Very specific regarding care after waxing & face threading. I highly appreciate of excellent services. Thank you so much.
I went to Monica's in hampton and I was disappointed and happy at the same time. The one thing that I liked was my color, but other than that I left the salon with bleach product on my face and the back of my shirt completely bleached. Also i didnt like how they didnt speak english at all. I understand its a dominican salon but if the majority of your clients are black it would be nice to say something in english.
I absolutely love Animare! I would have to say they are the best salon in the Hampton Roads area! I get highlights and lowlights when I go && Cindy does my hair. She is fabulous and listens very well to what I want. The front desk staff and service providers are great and very welcoming, offering me tea and coffee everytime I come to visit. I would recommend this salon to everyone. :)
Do not book with Nakita!! Even though she is a good stylist and she is nice when you get there, she is horrible with call backs, text! I have experience this on 3 Occassions!! I will never go back. Do yourself a favor and avoid the headache. It's a million "good" stylist out there!
I have been having my hair cut by Debra Stroble for years. She moved to this salon a few years back. She does a great job cutting my hair and has also cut my boys' hair when they were younger. Many of the gals in this shop are Christians, and it is a very positive place.
Excellent service! they treat me like family on my 1st visit!!! And it was without appointment
Very professional and i LOVE my hair!!! the salon is clean and inviting.
