I just spent 3 hours explaining how great this place is only to be kicked off of my internet connection. Here is a nutshell overview.
VERY competent sylists and technicians
Good rates which is helpful in this economy
Does not accept credit card which I appreciate since we just bailed out the banking industry and all of that bad credit stuff -----PLUS that percentage rate the salon must pay that out of state company for the use of those credit card machines --and this is on every service provided -- I appreciate not having that fee passed on to me .......stop being lazy people....go to the ATM or write a chekc
I am an upscale client that has had services in the best salons in America......I choose this funky fun salon where all customers young, old and in-between are the treated the same with quality products, outcome fair service pricing.
Go see Devin ladies.....FANTASTIC COLOR, CUTS and Up-DO's...Trudy is genius with waxing.....will let you know about the mani/pedi's
Head Quarters JUST TRY IT ---YOU'LL LIKE IT
Love this place and these people. Ricky is a wonderful stylist and Ray is quite the old time expert in hair color and the perfect cut. I would recommend them highly, but only if you are NOT uptight and out of touch. These guys will keep you in stitches while they clip and color away. You'll leave refreshed with slightly sore cheeks from laughing so much. OH! and you'll be gorgeous absolutely gorgeous!!!
Headquarters is unique with it's Marilyn Monroe pictures plastered all over the walls and ceilings. The stylists are wonderful. You cannot walk into the salon with out feeling a warm and welcoming atmosphere. And never a dull moment! Owner, stylist Rick with his quirky sense of humor will have you relaxed and laughing in no time. Everyone becomes a friend at Headquarters. I highly recommend it. And a manicuist is there. I haven't had her service yet, but I understand she is good. So next time I go I plan to have a pedicure and manicure while my hair is becoming youthful!
Happy Client for 20 years

If you want a great cut, trim, buzz or color job, plus a floor show, there is no other place to go but Head Quarters. The tender care they provide to the regulars who are over the age of retirement is refreshing. All walks of life and all ages receive the same respect and great cuts.
The have a large repeat business as well as lots of walk ins, everyone leaves satisfied.
The best thing about Head Quarters is it is full of life, banter and music. You just never know what happens at HQ and Ricky is an absolute doll.

I went in to get my haircut by Julie who has been there forever and they told me she wasnt there anymore. i asked about her new location or where i could find her and they were very rude. So i went hunting and found her. She is at As You Like It salon 1109 Royal Street. .Her number is 504-452-4631. She's the best and they have lost the best. I have no reason to go there now .Even had I not found Julie , I would never go back in that place. There's too many better , cleaner, and more professional salons out there.Now the most knowledgable hairdesigner is gone and so am I.

I GIVE THIS SALON NEGATIVE FIVE STARS!!!
This is by far the worst ""salon"" I have ever been to. I don't know if you can even call it a salon. It's a trashy, dirty room that reeks of cat urine. First off, THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH OR CHECKS. What kind of a hair salon can't run credit or debit cards? That alone is reason to avoid this place, not to mention the fact that they totally ruined my hair. I sat down in this lady's chair and said I wanted highlights done. WITHOUT EVEN ASKING ME WHAT I WANTED DONE she went over and mixed up some bleach. I should have got up and walked out right then but I gave her the benefit of the doubt. She then spent the next 30 minutes hurriedly painting highlights on my hair, she yanked and tugged on my hair the whole time, I'm not tender headed at all and it was SO painful it gave me the worst headache I've ever had... she pulled the bleach through the ends of my hair, which is a huge no-no, but that's not the worst of it... SHE LEFT MY ROOTS UNTOUCHED!!! So, all she managed to do was make my hair look EXACTLY THE SAME as it did when I walked in, only DAMAGED IT 50% more. She gave me a trim and then put oily products on my fine hair, so not only did it look TERRIBLE, but it looked greasy and dirty. She took a flat iron and went over the same sections four or five times, burning and breaking off the front sections... I fely my hair snapping off everywhere and now I have one inch pieces by my hairline that will take years to grow back. I'll be undoing the damage that was done to my hair for at least a year, and I'll have to wait 8 weeks to do it again, so by the time I can fix it I will have 16 weeks of roots. Oh , and I had to pay 140 bucks CASH to RUIN MY HAIR. I was livid and near tears but I just wanted to get out of there so I shoved the money in her hand and ran out the door. I still tipped her , I regret doing so, but I opted to be the bigger person.
RUN THE OTHER DIRECTION PEOPLE!! RUN!!!

Head Quarters is the best salon I've ever visited. The stylists are phenomenal and the atmosphere is warm, friendly and inviting. The prices are extremely reasonable and their cuts and colors are spectular. I've been to salons in several cities but nothing has ever come close to the first class treatment and warm persona that Head Quarters offers. Nothing else comes close. Visit Head Quarters and I guarantee it will be well worth you while!
