Have nothing but good things to say about this salon. I don't go as often as I'd like or should ( probably once a month) but my hair has never been in the shape it is now. I received a thorough consult. My stylist is Shamese and she is so knowledgeable guys. I just love her. Most reviews talked about in and out and I was shocked because that is never the case in salons but sure enough, I was out in and out. I didn't have to wait hours to be seen. I love it! Now I will caution you. Shamese is not your typical old hair dresser. She is a true cosmetologist. She is very serious about your hair care and makes it clear that this is her focus. If you are one that doesn't care about your hair or only care about your hair on certain occasions then this IS NOT the salon for you. If your hair is damaged, you have terrible ends or your hair needs something in particular, she will suggest and expect you to get the services needed to repair them. I can see where some people may misconstrue this as rude or mean but she doesn't play around when it comes to healthy hair. I get it, and I love her for it. I followed her advise and even though I only come once a month, my hair is in the best shape it has ever been.I do want to add to the comment below. Although I don't know her particular situation I would like to give my feedback since I am a regular client. I have never had an instance where the salon was not open during my appointment. Shamese is either there already or pulling up right beside me (if I have a morning appointment).This salon is more modern in terms of how it operates and I absolutely love it! If you are a person that needs to be hand held to make an appointment then this may not be the salon for you. I enjoy booking online at MY convenience. I don't have to bother with calling the salon, leaving a message, waiting for the stylist to call me back and then after all that, them not having the appointment time I need. I go online, her schedule tells me what is available, I book and the rest is history. They do require a credit card to secure your appointment but It didn't bother me because I've never been the no call no show type. I never had a problem with this aspect of booking. Never had my card charged unexpectedly or any fraud. I did have to pay in cash and no, I was never given a receipt but that is something that only a person that has been to the salon would know. But I never asked for one either, nor have I ever been to a salon where they have giving me a receipt for a roller set lol.Again, to each is own but I love this salon. Everyone has to find "their" ideal salon and just because it may not operate like you'd like it too doesn't mean it's not fabulous. You just need to find the right salon/stylist for you. I have! Good luck girls!!!
After reading a lot of the reviews on here I decided to try out this salon. 1) It is kind of shady to me that everything has to be done online - schedule, etc. You WILL NOT ever get to talk to a person before you go, I can guarantee it. Which makes their phone # uselss, because all it does it tell you to go to the website.2) You have to pay in cash, which make sense in a business sense during hard times. However, they don't give you a receipt which is again, a little shady. Seeming how you have to give your credit card just to sign up for an appointment. (No extra charges...YET)3) I had made an appointment for today at 9 am (at least 3 weeks in advance). Showed up at 9 this morning and NO ONE WAS THERE. I decided to wait 15 min before leaving, because that would give them enough chance to call me, show up late, or cancel. NOTHING. During that wait, I tried to call them so that I could have this on record, so that they wouldn't charge my card for "not showing". But low and behold, only get "go to the website". Makes me wonder if that is the real reason they have that phone # in place. (Avoidance)I would have been fine if they had to cancel or she was running late, as long as they would have been courteous enough to call/ let me know. That is the least they could do, but they weren't even able to do that. Let alone call and see for myself. Unfortunately, what I thought was going to be an answer to all my hair problems ended up being a waste of time, money, and gas. Do yourself a favor and go find a RELIABLE hairdresser. It will keep you from pulling your hair out. I was excited because I thought I had finally found a hair salon I could trust and had reasonable prices.
My story:To make a long story short, Shamise had to cut my shoulder length hair to 1/2" long. I don't like to bad mouth others but just head my warning to stay away from a stylist by the name of Yolanda. She was in a salon that was in the back of a cell phone store. Right then I should've known better but lesson learned.It's been a year and a long road but now my hair is shoulder length again. I wore quickweaves all year. Now I know most say that the glue damages your hair and I too believed that but my girl is so amazing. My hair is long and healthy once again. I got the glue free quickweave every 2 weeks for a year. Doesn't seem that long ago but I first came to her last summer my hair was cut off like a boy now it's down to my shoulders again.I am so grateful
Attention African American females it's not unknown on how difficult it is to manage our hair. There are so many products, processes, and money that is spent for us to attempt to get our hair together. Look no further because Contagious Hair Salon is just like its name contagious! You will get hooked and spread the news about there amazing hair services! I have struggle with my hair every since I was little starting off with mama and I in the kitchen with the pressing comb trying not to get burned, to finally putting in relaxers, but having my hair break off, going back to the pressing comb but investing in the electric version, then back to relaxers. Unfortunately, when going back to relaxers in my later years I went to a beauty school in Lexington, KY located downtown and it was put in wrong and my hair severely broke off most of it on the floor after that I was threw and have been slowly trying to maintain my hair on my own. Shamis got me together when I first came in for a trim she gave me the best advice on how to help my hair. I came in next time and got a service called "silk infusion" and a style hair cut and OMG you talk about body I mean BODY my hair moved like Michelle Obama and it was so amazingly soft I was smiling from ear to ear and shaking my head all day long! The prices are quite reasonable compared to anyone else! The shop is so fabulously decorated too! If I were you book an appointment today!!!
