Downtown girl goes to Metry!

I live in the Marigny, but now that I work part-time in Metairie, it got hard to get to my hairdresser uptown-and there I was across the street from Kenneth's. I was worried I would look like a Metairie blonde, but Amy did a wonderful job with my haircut, very meticulous, and later made my highlights brighter yet subtle. I have short hair and am pretty particular, so i was pleasantly surprised. Kenneth's affords a great experience all around and I'm very happy!

Dana is AMAZING!!!!!

Dana did my wedding hair, and she did the best job ever!!! I went for a trial during Jazzfest, since I live out of state and was in town for that, and my curls held up then, so I knew I'd be good to go for the wedding in Sept. I am so pleased with Dana- she is professional and totally helped me feel calm on my big day. The front desk is awesome too- Mary Beth even contacted me to get exact details for my hairstyle. Then, I called the day before, taking my chances, to get my 2 friends in, and they fit them in with no problem. Love this place!!! Thank you to Dana and Kenneth's crew!

From Dark Brown to Blonde

I am a natural Brunette and decided to change my hair to blonde because of my age. I have received many compliments on my new blonde hair thanks to Kelly. She takes her time and does exactly what you want. I am so happy with her work.

Thanks Kelly

Kenneth's is a great experience!

I have been to Kenneth's on and off for a few years. The first impression, the front desk ladies, could not be better! They are the best example of customer service I have seen in decades! I had called for a ""random"" appointment a few years ago and was lucky enough to get Amy. She is very sweet, a great stylist and she works quickly, which I need. I highly recommend Kenneth's and Amy.

Kenneth's is the BEST!!!

I have been getting my hair cut and styled at Kenneth's for 13 years and have been completely satisfied. The staff is professional, competent and caring. After Katrina, we moved out of state only to experience lots of bad food and lots of bad hair days!! We moved back to NOLA recently and I was back at Kenneth's within a week. It's great to be back home with my Kenneth's family!

Amy Mitchell

I almost hate to share my great experiences because I don't want Amy to ever be so booked she can't fit me in! :) BUT, with the being said, I believe it's important to give where credit is due. Amy is an incredible hair stylist. For those who know me, know that, without formal training, I can cut hair, dye, perm, etc. my hair & others - so, that makes me one of the worse type of hair salon clients, since I am very picky! Amy took the time to ask me what I wanted, discussed my hair type, recommended a style based on what I wanted, along with her recommendations. I must admit, my skepticism diminished with every question she asked. Needless to say, I left with a style that made me feel great, enhanced my facial features for a mid-fifties female and gave my thin hair a thicker appearance, plus the colic no longer parted! I am indeed a happy, satisfied customer and will recommend Amy to anyone, any age, for any style. I just left Kenneth's and was pleased to see this venue where I could share my thoughts with the public. Amy Mitchell.....great hair stylist.....!

Amy at Kenneth's

I've been going to Amy for several years now and I think she is the best hair dresser. I am often complimented on how great my color/highlights look, thanks to Amy. Everyone I have referred to Amy thinks she is fantastic as well. Her professionalism and bright personality are an added bonus. I am truly a fan!

I have been going to Amy Mitchell at this Salon for years! She is a true professional. She tells you exactly what you need to know about making decisions about your hair. I have never had a bad hair experience! She does my cut, color and highlights and does all very very well. She is a perfectionist, full of energy and a great person to spend appointment time with too! Thanks, Amy! You're terrific.

Amy is the best!

I am in my mid fifties and Amy's artistry with color, cut and style has made me feel like I'm in my mid forties! Amy is pleasant, talented and a perfectionist. I know that my color will be beautiful and I will leave the salon ready to go out. I've been going to Amy for about 1 1/2 years and I feel like I have been going to her for 10 years. And above all, Amy and I are friends and I enjoy going to the salon and sitting for an hour or so and just chatting.

Go Amy!!!!!

There's Something About Amy!

Let me preface this review: As a new resident to the New Orleans Metro Area, I knew nothing about the salons. Right before Christmas, I phoned several, finally finding one that would take me. It was a horrible experience. It almost ruined my life. Bad cut, bad service, bad everything. I was miserable with my new cut.
The review starts here: Upon walking into Kenneth's Salon in Metairie, as a walk-in for brow waxing, they handed me off to Amy. We started chatting and I decided right then that she would be my stylist. Now, fast forward to when I needed my hair cut. Finally, after being disgusted, still, with the previous cut, I decided I was tired of trying to fix hair that was just BLAH. Amy got me right in, looked at my hair, and explained what was WRONG with my hair from the previous place. I was completely at ease with her experience, professionalism, and understanding of exactly what I wanted done to my hair. She not only fixed the mistakes of the previous person, but truly gave me the cut that fit ME. I've not been this happy with a hair style in some time. Additionally, the staff of Kenneth's is superb. I am always greeted with a smile. Overall, the misery of my Christmas salon experience is erased as I realize that it led me to a wonderful stylist. Amy is skilled, friendly, and, possibly, the best stylist I've visited. Thank you, Amy! I've never been happier!

Very Consistent

I have been going to Amy at Kenneth's in Metairie for several years for my color, cuts and highlights. I don't have naturally ""good hair"", but I always get compliments and have even had total strangers come up to me and ask who does my hair. She is always consistent and there are never any surprises. The only person who knows my hair better than I do is Amy. I don't know what I would do, or what my hair would do, without her!

Always current trends, always reliable

I go to Kenneth's Studio for Hair because of their highly talented staff and top quality products. Dara at the St. Charles location takes care of my highlights and Kenneth cuts my hair. I use Kenneth's private line products, and also buy as gifts for friends and family, because of the results. No harsh chemicals, just healthy looking hair. I trust Kenneth and his staff with making me look my best. And I've never been disappointed.

Have been going to Kenneth's for many years starting at the Robert E Lee location, now at Vets, and have always been very pleased with the service I received. My current stylist and colorist, Dana, has always done a great job. First stylist married and moved out of town, second relocated after Katrina. Could have easily gone to another salon but have always been pleased with the service and staff I have encountered at Kenneth's. Dana came highly recommended and have always been very pleased. I have recommended Kenneth's to others.

Great Job

I unlike the other reviewer am very please with the service I recieve at Kenneth's Salon. I go to the Vet's location and have had nothing, but the best customer service. My hair always looks fabolous. I also have my childrens hair cut there and I am asked where do we go to get the cut because it is done so well. I would tell everyone to go to Kenneth's Salon. 5 Stars

Ruined my hair

I was referred to this salon by a couple of different people and was looking to do some highlights on my medium brown hair. After waiting two weeks to get my appointment, I showed the colorist the pictures of what my hair used to look like with highlights and what I wanted to look like ( light brown with ash blonde highlights). She proceeded to put a bottle of bleach into my hair and then warn me not to be alarmed by the ""reddish"" color because the highlights would blend in so well I wouldn't be able to see it anymore. Once we got to the mirror I realized the ""reddish"" tint was bright orange. The highlights she put on it were so yellow that my whole head looked like it could glow in the dark! I was horrified but I didnt know what to say because I was in shock. I asked what I could do about the orange color and she told me there was nothing strong enough at the salon to help me so I should go buy the purple shampoo and conditioner they sell at Sally's and use it everyday. She said it would be a process to get me where I wanted my hair to be but never told me prior to the bleach that I would be walking around with orange hair! I went straight to Sally's from the salon and the lady who worked there told me it was meant for brassy blonde not orange but to try it anyways. I couldn't even sleep that night I was so upset . The next morning I decided if I was embarassed to go to work, that was enough of a reason for me to go back and try to fix it somehow. I called and spoke to Mary Beth and she was very nice, and booked me an appointment at the St Charles location (the bleach nightmare occured at the Vets location) where the owner would be. Even though I had never met anyone that worked at this salon, they all knew who I was when I walked in (the hair did get me noticed). The owner began moving my hair around and looking at different angles and he told me if I wanted to go blonde this was the color I had to be. What no one seemed to understand was that I only wanted highlights! He told the girl who would be ""fixing"" my hair to throw in some lowlights and kept talking over me when I was trying to explain what I wanted. I felt stupid, humiliated, and embarassed. The girl who worked on my hair was really sweet and seemed to know what she was doing- she didn't listen to everything he told her because she knew it wasn't what I wanted- but at this point there was only so much they could do. My hair was now a caramel/orange melange- and I got charged again. They didnt charge me for the color, but they charged me for the style which I needed since I was going back to work- which wouldnt have had to buy if I wasnt getting my hair fixed. The orange was still overwhelming. I bought almost $100 worth of products on top of the almost $300 I had spent on getting my hair done (twice) to try to keep it from breaking and falling off. I ended up having to go to a different salon that weekend (Keith Noonan- awesome place!) to get it fixed. They were so helpful and sensitive about what had happened and also in shock at the condition my hair was in. They were able to tone the orange to a light brown until my hair is healthy enough to get highlights again.

Im not from here and I followed recommendations I got from two people about this salon. While I dont think the woman who bleached my hair intended to give me orange hair, the way the salon owner treated me and then charged me again is just not acceptable. My hair is falling out like crazy, I had to spend another $200 in getting it fixed at the other salon and conditioners to try to get it healthy again- resulting in over $600 for some highlights. I just dont want anyone to every have to go through what Ive been through in this last week. Please be cautious if you go to this salon and if you go to the St Charles location, the only person I would let touch my hair is Dara. Beware of the mean old man. Good luck!
