When my stylist left Nashville a few years back, I dilengently searched for someone who could give me the look I wanted. No stylist was ever able to give me a cut and color worthy of the cost, until today. I went to Tracy at Altra Salon and he was fabulous! He listened to me and gave me feedback on the style I desired and when I walked out of there, I felt like a million bucks! If anyone is searching for a really good stylist, definitely make an appointment with Tracy at Altra Salon! It was the best cut/color I've had in years!

I'm from Santa Barbara, CA. & my boyfriend is based in Fort Campbell, KY & invited me to the military ball in Nashville. I was really nervous because I have really long hair & wanted an up-do for the dance. I go in & have an appointment with Alicia. I had a picture of the up-do that I wanted. Alicia did an amazing job! She did my hair better than I had hoped for. I'm so thankful that I decided to trust the reviews I read on Altra Salon (the whole reason why I booked an appointment there). My boyfriend loved my hair & so did I. My up-do stayed the same all throughout the night of dancing. If you're out of state or town & want a great salon-go to Altra Salon! They're a great salon & Alicia is amazing!

Dick Martin has been my hairstylist for many years. He is an exceptional stylist and colorist. I highly recommend his services. I am very pleased with the results from my visit today! He gave me a great cut that added much needed body and fullness to my fine, limp hair. He also gave me beautiful blonde highlights that make my hair shine again. I haven't been this satisfied with my hair in a very long time. I lost contact with Dick for a couple of years. Thankfully, I recently found him at this salon and returned today. Dick listens and offers solutions, from styling to hair products. He has the experience you're looking for in a colorist! Also, I feel very comfortable in this quaint salon conveniently located near downtown. It's easily accessible from anywhere in the city. They also have an excellent line of products including Morrocan Oil, my favorite product! Thanks, Dick Martin! I'll see you in 7 weeks!

I have been going to Tracy Hill since I was in high school. I have extremely curly hair and was never able to make it look like much more than a mess. Tracy gave me a great cut that really helps the curl not become frizzy. He also taught me how to style it straight. People are always shocked to find out my curly hair is not a perm. Both of my parents go to Tracy and have for years. We wouldn't trust our hair to anyone else.

I wanted to chop off my long hair last fall, and Alicia did a GREAT job taking my ideas and going with them. My cuts and highlights are always great, and I really enjoy visiting Altra unlike other salons in the past.
Glad to have such a nice place to go in my own neighborhood.

I love Tracy! He always makes me feel like I am family. I lost contact with him and just recently found him and the salon. I am very greatful! I love the way they take their time and genuinely care about what you want the day of your appointment. Actually, I usually just say, ""Do what you want...I trust you!"" That is the hard for some people to do. I love Alicia and also Ms. Amber....both are kind and always smiling! Just glad to be back in the hands that I can always trust!

Alicia has been hair dresser for over 6 years now! She is awesome! I will not let anyone else touch my hair. She is a color professional that knows her stuff. I am always pleased and happy with the services that Alicia and Altra Salon have to offer. You definitely need to go check them out.
I used to bounce from salon to salon, never understanding when someone would say, ""I never let anyone by [stylist] touch my hair."" Since I've found Tracy, I know exactly how they feel.
The cut is always fantastic and the color is amazing. My husband always says, ""You just shine when you come out of there - it's worth every penny!""

I have been in Nashville a little over a year. When I first moved here, I tried several salons looking for someone who could cut short hair well. After a few not so good haircuts, I found Alicia at Altra Salon. I have not been anywhere else since. Alicia has done an awesome job with my short haircut and I always get compliments.
Altra is a fantastic salon and Kristin is very talented. I’ve got very thick curly hair and Kristen understands how to cut and layer curly hair so it looks really nice. The color is a perfect match very time without damaging my hair. And I LOVE that the Salon carries TIGI and the Catwalk line of products.
There is nothing like leaving a hair salon and feeling beautiful! I get that feeling everytime i leave Altra Salon. The decor is classy and trendy, the products are fabulous, and most of all the staff are friendly and extremely talented hair stylists. If you have not tried this salon yet, you need it....i promise you will keep going back.

I was in dire need of a haircut and decided to try Altra after reading all the great reviews. Kristen cut my hair and did a fabulous job! I felt so much better after she was done and immediately started getting compliments on my hair. Kristen really listened and took her time, and she's so sweet and friendly. I will definitely be back!

I have been a client of Alicia's for many years. She does not only my hair but my husband's and children's as well!! I never know what I want done so I tell Alicia to ""have at it"" and let her creativity run. I have NEVER been disappointed with what she comes up with. Even my children refuse to go anywhere else other than Altra!!

I have been going to Altra Salon for a while now after bouncing around trying to find a good fit. I found it at Altra. I see Alicia and she is amazing. I know I can sit down and say, lets do something fun and edgy and she does just that. She has helped mend a bad dye job, done highlights and low lights and done some awesome cuts. It's not a big salon, but it nice and still has a classy charm with a glass of wine and an amazing scalp massage. making sure to prop your feet up and make you comfortable.

I have been going to Altra Salon for about a year now and I look forward to going every 6 weeks! Alicia always makes my hair look fabulous! I love having my hair washed by Amber. She almost puts me to sleep during my hair washing. I sometimes schedule just a wash and blow dry only because it is so relaxing. I would recommend this salon to anyone who is looking for a nice, friendly place with excellent talent!

I was very fortunate to have Tracy Hill do the hair for my daughter's wedding. Although he didn't know us he listened to what we wanted and did an incredible job. Aside from his skills he has a great personality and was fun to be around. He was on time and I would recommend him for every day styling as well as special events. I look forward to seeing him again.

I decided to go to Altra Salon after I saw previous reviews on here about how great Alicia is, so I decided to try her out mainly because of the reviews and the location. I must say I was extremely disappointed. I have lived in many major cities around this country and have never had my hair done in such a way that $200 later I found myself dying it the very next day. I came in wanting an all over demi- color, cut as well as a few ""pieces"" of highlights. The cut and color looked good, until they washed my hair and I saw my highlights. They were horrible! At first I just thought they needed to tone down (why she didn't use toner afterwards was beyond me) however after closer inspection when I got home, I noticed that some pieces were brassy orange (did not process long enough) some were blonde and some were OMG this is Goldilocks blonde! Not only were they not pieces around my face, they were chunks and stopped in the middle of my head! I looked like a skunk! Never have I been so disappointed in my life with my hair. I figured that she should have done two things. 1) Leave bleach on just for a bit to give me some caramel pieces since my hair was so dark to begin with or 2) Let bleach process longer to give me more of a sunkissed look while weaving in small pieces not chunks. This was obviously lack of experience with foils and was surprised that she was the co-owner. Needless to say, I am not coming back.
