After being sat down by the seemingly unnattentive receptionist, I was ushered back to meet my new stylist. I was excited as our consultation went fairly well, I thought this girl sounded experienced and pretty confident, so I felt at ease. The shampoo girl washed my hair sat me down and I then waited for the stylist to come back. She seemed a bit distracted due to the fact that the other stylists in the salon were happily chatting about the person who had just left. My hair cut was average to say the least, and for the price I wasn't very pleased, however I needed my eyebrows done, and had had them done before (it had been forever) as she continued to explain that everybody pretty much waxes the same, and she felt they just needed cleaned up a bit, she then proceded to remove the majority of the hair that I asked to be left untouched. I paid the bill, and walked out, but couldnt help thinking are they going to be talking about me the same way they just did infront of the other clients, including myself, it was very akward. I was referred there by a fellow employee, and i know that I would probably not refer any of my friends to this place. Everyone did seem fairly nice, i just felt like the stylist bs'd her way through the consult., and was just a little too distracted and had her mind somewhere else when it should have been on my hair and the eyebrows that I had before I walked out.....Overall, not nearly as impressed as i thought I would have been

Had my first appointment with Shauna for a simple polish change. She made it a wonderful experience, very relaxing and was very thorough. My feet look beautiful. I would highly recommend anyone in need of a manicure or pedicure to ask for Shauna, she did a fantastic job!!

I went to Cardamone's for a pedicure because I saw the great reviews. I should have noticed that there wasn't one in regards to getting a pedicure. Waited a few minutes to get acknowledged as a customer while employees were chatting a few feet away from me. Then waited another 20 minutes for my pedicure to start even though there were no other guests being accomodated. I almost walked out. When I finally got the pedicure, I was dissappointed and angry. It was completely not worth the time, money, or dissappointment. When you go to a salon, you think of leaving relaxed and happy. Not annoyed. Also, typically the person at the front desk asks how everything was. She said not much more than what service I had and how much I owed. I guess you should stick to haircuts at this place.

I absolutely love Cardamone's. Patti is my stylist and she is fantastic! She recently did my mother's hair, which is a challenge for any stylist because of her thin hair. Patti did such a remarkable job. My mom was so pleased with the results, she never thought it was possible for her hair to look that good.
I've been coming to Cardamone's for four years now and all of the staff is great. Patti is super cool and is a genuine person. Even my restaurant's executive chef will not have anyone touch his hair other than Patti!

I go for haircuts, color jobs and tanning. Joe styles my hair and he does a fabulous job. I have a lot of hair and he is always patient and thorough. Recently I had the Brazilian Blowout done and my hair looks and feels so good! I highly recommend Cardamone's for all your styling needs!!!

I googled a salon in Pittsburgh and read some awesome reviews on Cardamones and thought I would give it a try. Saw Amy and she did an amazing job on my haircut and my eyebrows were perfect. I recommend this salon to anyone. They are all highly professional and above all not conceited. Will be a repeat client.

Mick is truly the best stylist and colorist that I have ever been to. He gives me a cut that is easy to manage, classy and edgy and can be styled in just minutes. I receive compliments almost daily on both my cut and color. I have literally had people turn their heads and reach out to stop me to inquire about my hair both in the malls and in the city. He changes my looks often and even takes the time to look through hair idea books with me. He also ensures that I know how to achieve the look he has designed, after I leave the salon. If you are looking for the most up-to-date styles and colors and want to look your absolute best, then Mick is the gem that you are looking for. With my deepest thanks, Laurel

Fabulous place and great people (minus JoJo). Like to have my hair done and watch the diverse people that walk in. Stylist Mick is great with my hair! I have naturally curly hair and for some odd reason other stylists have cut it in the same fashion as straight. NOT A GOOD THING! Mick takes into account not only texture density and color but he also seems to know what styles go with what people. I recommend him highly. He is an assest to anyone who wants top of the line quality. One other, if you like diverse, out of the ordinary cuts, he is definitely the person to see!!!!

While other salons book appointments according to time needed, this salon books according to their pocket book needed. I've sat for over 2 hours waiting for the person booked between my appointment to have their hair finished anxiously awaiting just to have my hair dried so I could leave. If you don't mind that, book your appointment now! (especially with Mick!)
