I've been getting my haircuts here for years. I started with someone and after she moved she referred me to Megan who is just awesome!
I don't go often to get my hair cut but I always feel great when I leave. I trust Megan with my hair and she really knows what she's doing. I love that you start with a nice shampoo in chairs that massage you and a scalp massage.
If youre reading these reviews and basing them off if you want to go here make sure you go see Megan!

The salon is small and intimate with lots of style. The stylists they have are not only talented but professional. The skin care specialist is absolutely amazing. One of the best facials I have had and it was truly relaxing. she did an excellent job. The haircuts and color I have received there have also been really great. I have gone to other salons in between, but stylists like Staci are hard to come by, she does a great job of listening and an even better job of knowing your hair. What I am trying to say is, there is no reason to look elsewhere.

I could be a little spoiled, I do live in NYC, but no matter where I am, I expect a perfect blowout no matter what, especially if I'm being charged $75 for it.
This was my second visit even after the epic blowout failure the first time. I thought if I changed stylists and upgraded to a higher priced one it would solve the problem. No, it didn't.
They use exceptional products, Oribe, as does my salon in New York so I'm not sure why my hair didn't turn out the same. I informed the stylists, both times, that I have very coarse, dry, color treated hair but that I wanted it to be very straight with a slight curl on the end. I have this done twice a week at my salon at home perfectly, it isn't difficult. Or at least my stylist here makes it seem easy. Not only that, but my stylist got it right the first time she ever did it.
The first stylist used a paddle brush on my hair. I would have normally been against that, but I had a stylist do my hair in Chicago with one beautifully so I thought it could be done. It can't, at least not at this salon. My hair that night started to frizz and become full of body, the exact thing I didn't want. It isn't like Las Vegas is humid so the only thing I could come up with is that she obviously didn't know how to do a proper blowout.
I'd like to say that, in all the years I've been straightening my hair, I have never had these kinds of problems. Granted, once I find someone to do my hair, I stay with them. But even traveling I've never had this much trouble. I've had my hair done at the Bellagio and it was decadently beautiful.
So, onto the SECOND try with this same salon. The more advanced stylist who charged an outrageous amount for a blowout, did my hair with a brush with an oblong barrel which I asked about. She assured me that the curl at the bottom would be the same as with a round barrel. It wasn't. Not even close. It looked horrible so I asked her to redo it. She chose a smaller brush with another oblong barrel. Again, same result.
The problems really didn't start until a few hours later with both hairstyles. They began to frizz, my hair began to get more and more volume and eventually it felt unhealthy and dry and the curl didn't stay nor would my hair flatten anymore even when blowdried at home.
Both times my hair was a disaster. Either the bar is low for stylists in Vegas and that's what makes people love this salon or, I have no clue. I pay half of what she charged me in NYC and my hair turns out perfectly every time.
I will never spend another dime in this salon and I certainly wouldn't trust them with color, semi-permanent straightening or a cut if they can't get a blowout right.
As as aside I rarely write reviews (unless the service is really terrible or extraordinary), but with all the 5-star ratings (I'm honestly dumbfounded) I had to tell about my disappointing experiences. This place is not anywhere near the salon it's claimed to be -- not by a very long shot.

I discovered this place a few months ago and I feel very lucky! I had been looking for a place to get my hair done in Vegas and Globe has highly exceeded my expectations. I look forward to my visits there because I always enjoy myself and come away looking great.

It was my first time to a Salon in Las Vegas. Normally I gamble, or go shopping but this time around I was invited to go to a black tie event so I had to look fabulous. I found out about the GLOBE SALON through this site, and it lived up to it's standards. I was greeted immediately the moment I walked in the door. It seemed really busy, so that was good. Everyone was smiling, laughing, focused, talking, engaged in activity, and just having fun. I had a good vibe. I felt really rushed because I was 15min. late to my appointment, but the manager really calmed me down with a beverage. My stylist was Leilani, or Lei lei. I have to say she was the best! She listened to exactly everything I had to say about what I wanted. Some stylist just assume right away right after 3 words. So she listened, and styled my hair EXACTLY (If not better) how I wanted my hair. She gave me a lot of advice on hair products, and recommended a Bumble and Bumble deep conditioning treatment that I purchased. She was very educated on everything I asked her about. What surprised me the most was the price for my type of style. Normally back home (Chicago Subs.) $45-$60 at some small blah hair cuttery type place that takes over an hour and leave my hair hard and crunchy. GLOBE SALON $30 for my style!!! I think I asked the manager if that was the correct price twice. My hair was not crunchy or hard, it was silky and full of volume....perfect!! And that's why I left Leilani a $20tip. Overall, my experience was amazing! I will definately go back to Globe for any of their services again!! Very professional!! Thanks to all the staff!!

To put it simply, I'm a nerd. I moved to Las Vegas over 10 years ago when I was 10. Instead of finding a stylist, I just went to Supercuts. Sure, they had no idea how to cut my hair so it looked good, but I didn't care enough to look for a better hair cut. So, eventually, a few months ago, I decided to try out a salon. Being the aforementioned nerd, I spent days searching the internet to find a match for me. Eventually, I decided it was Globe. I got an appointment, but they were moving and I got mine pushed back several times. Eventually, it was time for my cut. As I drove over, I felt some apprehension because we've all heard of the artificially inflated scores some places get, and they had recommended their ""least experienced stylist"" to me. Once I got there, I was greeted immediately and promptly given something to drink. I settled down with a magazine for what I assumed would be at least fifteen minutes. However, I was in the middle of the first article when my stylist, Leilani, came for me. Amazingly, she listened to everything I said. I told her that she was the expert and should do what she thought was best. Her response was, ""But YOU have to like it."" Eventually, she won the battle against my stubborn hair and got something that was beautiful and easy and matched my personality. I left looking and feeling great. My hair is truly wash and wear and still looks wonderful. A couple weeks later, I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in a long time who works as a receptionist at a salon, and she raved over it.
Thank you to everyone at Globe Salon for such an amazing experience.

I have gone to Globe several times for a bikini wax & twice for a haircut. I have no complaints about the wax, everything was great (a little pricey though & the technician insisted that I come in every 2 weeks, that can add up in $). Now regarding hair. My technician was recommended to me by the token snooty receptionist (I told her I didn't want anyone too trendy). She recommended Megan. First, appointment was pretty decent. I have very long hair and told her from the beginning I wanted to keep it that way. She could sense I was nervous so she was extremely conservative & I appreciated that. So I felt like I could trust her after that to be more aggressive. The second time I went in & tried my hardest to explain that I wanted layers, she was just not having it (I think hairstylists think long hair is ""sooo boring and just sits there""). Anyway, we ended up sort of agreeing on an idea. Now here's the kicker, she DID NOT want to wash my hair. She told me she was going to dry cut it (which is fine) but I assumed that meant washing/drying or cutting it & then washing/drying it. I had gone to a club the night before & my hair reaked. She said she didn't have time. Finally, she said she'd have the assistant wash it after she dry cut it. The haircut was ok minus her 'tude. After that, the assistant washed my hair & it took her a good hour to dry it (even for long hair that was a biiitt mmuuchh). Then she wanted to show me how to use a curling iron (whoop-dee-doo!). I tried to tell her my hair is super straight & won't curl. To prove that to her it took about 20 minutes (time to heat up the iron which she couldn't find & start sweating as she realized my hair doesn't bend). Finally, we agreed on a flat iron to smooth everything out. I flat iron my hair in 5 min. at home it took her a good 20. So I spent 2+ hours getting irritated & left with a trim and a bad flat iron job. I tipped both of them, don't ask me why. Bottom line: NEVER AGAIN!

Globe salon is definitely the place to go to get your hair done for your wedding! I went there with my 2 bridesmaids and all three of us got exactly what we were looking for without being able to describe the hairdo's very well. They made my wedding day that much more special by the ease and quickness they did all of our hair along with how great we looked for my wedding. I'd definitely recommend Globe to anyone going to Vegas for a wedding! Plus they don't charge an arm and a leg!

Based on the excellent reviews at CitySearch, I decided to give Globe a try. I have to agree that management was great, the gentleman taking care of me at checkout was very helpful.
Based on Globe's website of staff descriptions, I tried NIcole for a cut and color. She did a great job with the color, she's clearly a strong colorist, and the haircut was good, not the best. I do have to advise tho', that Nicole is not for the faint of heart...She greeted me with ""So what's the deal?"" which caught me off guard a bit, and smacked her gum through most of the appointment. She's got the mouth of a sailor and lacks in professionalism. She's good (which seems to be so hard to find in Vegas), but if you're on the conservative side, I would recommend trying someone else.
As for the salon itself, I am not so sure what the other reviewers are seeing as so hip and modern. It has a 'warehouse/renovated a smoothie joint in a strip-mall/ feel to it to me. It comes across as sterile and cold, more than hip and modern. I know that they are moving to a new location downtown soon, so I will be curious to see what the new location is like.
I did appreciate that there was no pretense about the salon, and management seems very professional and willing to make things right, therefore I will be back.

Used CitySearch to help me decide where to get my hair cut while I was in town. Wanted someone new and a new look at my hair. Chose Globe 'cause of the rating and the couple of reviews I read. Megan did a fab job cutting my hair -- going to have her do the color next time I'm in town too!
I went to Globe Salon to have my hair cut,colored and highlighted. The look of the place was overall very clean and modern but as far as the service was concerned the lady who was doing my hair quoted me one price and the manager quoted me another and not mention I had a coupon for 20% off the services which they did not honor. So, not only is the place too posh for me because they tend to look down at you if you are dressed in casual attire but the attitude of the manager was very snobby and I got the feeling that I was not good enough for the salon. Why? Cause I'm a local dressed in jeans? I was greatly dissapointed in the overall attitudes and would never go back again even though the place is so close to me and the look of it is cool. Not worth the hassle I already gave them many chances to recover their bad rep but no can do! The girls were too young for my taste basicaly fresh out of school and younger then myself and I'm in my early twenties...............NOT RECOMENDED!!!!!DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
I love the upbeat vibe at this salon. Melissa, my stylist, is awesome and detail oriented. She's an expert colorist and gives me great advice about taking care of my hair in between visits. I highly recommend this salon to anyone who wants great looking hair, a friendly environment, and the best hair products available.
I am addicted to changing my hair. My stylist Megan seems to find endless ways to cut and style my hair so that I, in turn, have endless ways to play with it on my own. I find I keep going back before I ever actually NEED another haircut just to sit down and experiment with Megan. She knows me, she knows my hair and I have NEVER left the salon with anything less than a bounce in my step and a sassy new 'do. The atmosphere is clean and modern and I have always felt well taken care of by the rest of the staff.
I was going to the Globe Salon for over a year and never once had a bad experience. Despite a fairly simple haircut and not exactly looking like a hipster, socialite, man-about-town or if I even had more than a couple hundred dollars to my name at any one time, I was always greeted warmly and treated very professionally. I always got a great haircut that my stylist treated as if I were paying twice as much money to get. She always had some really good suggestions for me whenever I told her what I wanted, making for a better haircut than I would've had otherwise. It's also in a nice location and while very simply decorated, its very tasteful and comfortable to spend a couple of hours in. Because of some money issues I felt I couldn't go back and ""splurge"" on a nice haircut but when I ran into one of the owners later, he was very understanding but said they would always be willing to work something out if I wanted to come back. Really a great place.

Staci at Globe is the only stylist in Vegas that I trust with my 'do. She knows what your hair wants to do even if you don't, and she's never failed to give me a haircut that didn't make me look fantastic. And Globe's customer service and big-city vibe are impeccable.

Everything considered, Globe Salon is hard to beat. The service, staff, and vibe are just about impossible to beat for the price. Hip sophistication, a complete lack of pretension, and stylists that are on their game. Even The Globe's response to the (verrry fewww) poor reviews here on Citysearch, shows that they care about everybody that walks through their door. Downtown Steve

I went to a few different hair stylist in Las Vegas, before I found Melissa and the ladies of Globe salon. I have the kind of hair that is neither curly, nor straight but has a natural wave. I also work in an artistic industry and sadly don't have a lot of natural fashion sense so I need advice.
I told Melissa what I didn't like about my current hair - and I told her honestly I was not going to spend hours on it. No problem! I got great advice, and a great cut that gave me a fresher look and was easy to fix. (And the cutest bangs I never would have tried on my own in a million years...)
Hillary is wonderful with my brows - first time in my life it was a pleasant enough experience to go regularly to get my brows done. She listens to me when I wanted thinner brows to bring out my eyes.
For the people who gave this place a bad review, I have to say I have never gotten the feeling that if I was unhappy they wouldn't try to make it right. So talk, the Globe staff listens.

Staci and the wonderful ladies at Globe have been taking amazing care of my ""do"" for years. Their work keeps me looking much better than I have any right to look! Always a pleasure to be in the salon pampered by a staff of talented and caring people.
