I am very disappointed therefore I have to write this review. I have spent over $2,000 during my course as a customer at this salon. On July 19, I received services and was dissatisfied with the process, after receiving a color, I noticed patches in which my hair was still grey. Four different people had their hands in my hair that day. This salon claims to have a gratification policy for unsatisfied customers, in my case, this was not true! One day after my unpleasant hair treatment, I called and left a message about my displeasure. The return phone call from the owner Ashley K, never happened. I am still waiting. In fact, I am most sure after this review is posted, I will be told that she never received my phone message.
I wear my hair natural and it seems to be the only place in the area who will cut it wet, which is my preference. Yes, it is $$$ but so far I have come to terms with it because to get what I want and am about convenience it works for me better than driving to Orange, looking for parking, or NYC, etc...
It took 10 years of wasting my time with the box store haircut places before I found my go to. I was tired of the inconsistent haircuts and never having the same stylist. Fellas - don't let the "Salon" name fool you, George is an artisan of men's hair-styling, really put's care into each session. Great staff, easy going and budget friendly.
This review is long over due but better now than never.. I did my hair with George for my wedding and it was an absolute disaster. I went to him for a trial few months before and he really didn't do anything he just picked up a few strings of hair and saw pix of what I wanted and he said ok I know what you want.. I was stupid not to try anyone else since he didn't do a real trial but anyways my wedding day comes, I am few minutes backed up because my makeup artist was a little late and George was so rude to me. He kept on complaining and huffing and puffing telling me how he as a party to go to... Well I'm sorry that it's my wedding day and you are charging me $350 to do my hair, cant you just not stress me out. Anyways I gave him 10 pix of how I wanted my hair to look in all different angles, but let me tell you that my hair did not even come out close to what I wanted. He was rushing me on my wedding day I was so pissed off and wanted to just cry. Of course I said this is nothing like what I wanted but then he started giving me an attitude and throwing pins Around like I inconvenienced him. End if story my hair was not hideous but it was nothing like I wanted or payed for and he was not one bit apologetic. He's very arrogant and thinks he's wayyyy better than he really is. Warning!!! If you're a bride please save huge amount of money and go somewhere else!!!
I would follow Den nearly anywhere, but I hope she stays at George's forever! It is calm, beautiful, friendly - a perfect place to get rid of the stress of the day and emerge as your most beautiful self.
The salon is cute and small but definitely doesn't have any "wow" factor. For the prices they are charging which are comparable to NYC you would expect better attention. The hair was nice but frankly you can get your hair done else where for cheaper with better service.
It was my first time at Salon 212. I walked in to a very chic and clean salon and they were able to take me right away. Very friendly, they offered me coffee and water. I had my hair done by Ginny! She really has cool hair so I knew she would take care of my locks. When you meet her you'll see what I mean. I told her what my concerns were and she gave me her thoughts and than together we came up with a great plan. She walked me through everything she was doing and why. She was always making sure I was okay and seeing if I needed anything at all.Ginny did exactly as she said she would in our consult. Not scissor happy at all & very nice and honest. We had a nice conversation but it didn't drag the appointment on and on. She straightened my hair famously in no time and I was on my way! For $60.00 plus tip I truly think she was worth every penny. I found my new stylist!
