This is Tamara from Creative Colours and I take my reviews and work very seriously. It is important for people to know that my reviews are all 100% true and I have 10 years of experience and I take many next level cut and color classes regularly--> I am a good hair dresser and to compare me to Supercuts is a huge injustice and very disturbing. I cannot say why this client needed to so severely berate me publicly, for I GUARANTEE ALL OF MY WORK, AND ASKED HER AT THE TIME IF HER HAIR WAS WHAT SHE WANTED AND SHE SAID YES AND TIPPED ME $35(over 30% tip)!! If later she has lots to publicly complain about, then I would encourage her to improve her in person communication skills vs pointedly damage a hard earned quality reputation. It is true that we have a review program, but it is not in exchange for positive reviews, it is simply a system we have for our clients to share in their honest experiences and be allowed to sample a new service with us for their time= win/win. Read the details of the many reviews, clearly they are 100% genuine! A few months ago I went through a crazy period in life and I remember clearly the 'over the top' day that she refers to! The client who was 'too ash' spent the first 20+ minutes in consultation saying 'no orange, I only like ash,' and then was 'too ash,' but when she returned for her next color she said 'you were right, do it exactly the same..." and she will admit this is just her personality, she is always unhappy with her hair at first. The cut comment was a client that always complains about something, but returns only to me for years. The brow wax is the only negative wax client I have ever had and I fully responded to her concerns (her brows were perfect she simply wanted them HUGE) by refund and on google reviews. This reviewer told me she wanted a chunky weave and after the wash she said she wanted more lighter chunks around her face. I asked her if she was happy with the rest of her color and she said she was->finished roots MATCHED EXACTLY THE COLOR SHE CAME IN WITH--> golden! While I took the extra time to add in more highlights, I could have easily toned her hair. She specifically asked for high lift blond 'chunky' highlights, which she now calls white streaks! I do modern finish dry cutting and I do an invisible layering technique that my long haired clients love, which is the cut I gave this woman, that is anything but a 'supercuts' technique. In fact, I can't even have any one else cut my own hair anymore for no one seems to be able to master this technique. So I finish here with sending in regular clients to affirm my quality and can only hope that you who are reading will consider her extreme position and use my many other positive reviews in feeling confident in choosing Creative Colours : More than a Common Salon & Spa.

This review is long overdue. I moved to Reno from San Francisco eight months ago and was in search of a good waxing place (eyebrows and brazilian) and based on the great yelp reviews decided to check this place out. This place is really as amazing as the reviews say it is. I've been getting waxed since I was eighteen and as I moved around a lot I've been exposed to a number of different waxers. I have to say that this was the least painful experience I've ever had...maybe even bordering on relaxing side (yes, i didn't think that was possible either!). I've gotten several brazilian waxes by Kendra, and once was seen by Bryna. Kendra is confident and knows what she is doing--she's quick, helps you coordinate your breathing so that you experience a lot less pain as she pulls the wax off and the best part is, I no longer have any ingrowns! The warm towel on your belly, the hot rocks to hold on to and the post-wax products that they use make the dreaded ordeal seem more like a spa treatment. My experience w/ Bryna wasn't bad, but nothing compared to the quick and practically pain-free session w/ Kendra. As for eyebrows, Tamara is the best. I may have to come back to Reno just for eyebrow waxes once i move back to SF! Even my husband noticed that my face looked prettier lol. I have had some eyebrow catastrophies in past w/ aestheticians taking way too much off and making my already chubby face look chubbier. Tamara leaves my eyebrows looking natural yet very well groomed. Also, I expect it is due to a combination of her expertise and the products that she uses, but I never have any post-waxing redness/scarring (which has been an issue in the past). They're also really helpful w/ trying to accomodate clients. I'm a resident physician w/ a busy schedule and the girls on the phone are always trying to fit me in one way or another. Just last month I was running very late and Tamara ever so sweetly did my eyebrows over at her hair salon and was really nice about it!
I LOVE MY New DO! I have lived in Reno since 1996 and HAD been using the same hair dresser for 13 years. He has done a nice job (I thought), but over the years my cuts were not consistently good cuts each visit. I’d come to expect a week or more grow out period before I was content. Each visit to him I would say to myself, “I hope this will be a good hair cut day.” When I was ready for a major style change I decided to look up some new hairstylists. That is how I found Shirley Love and the Creative Color Salon. I went on-line and Googled top rated Reno hair stylists. The reviews convinced me to give them a try because I read so many stories like my own that had a happy ending. I was scheduled to see Shirley Love for a consultation. During our consult time she was very patient and listened to all my ideas, the things I liked and things I didn’t. We went through many pictures and discussed my “hair” options. When I walked into the shop I was a boring old mess of mid length frizzy layers with no real style; when I walked out of the shop I felt over the moon delighted freshly updated with a simple yet sophisticated cut. I LOVE the new me. No more pony tails and clips!! She has made a huge difference in my everyday and I just can’t thank her enough. Everywhere I go people comment that my new look is is wonderful. I actually get double takes! My self esteem and confidence has been restored. My children and husband even like my new look, which is huge. I highly recommend that you check out Creative Color Salon and Shirley Love. Tamara, the shop owner, was very helpful in setting up my appointment and seems very knowledgeable & experienced. I hear she is a wonderful stylist too! You can find them at: 775-829-4447 or www.creativecoloursalon.com A very happy customer, Joy Findley
I am a 48 year old and have, for some 33 yrs., had a chronic neuromuscular problem affecting my middle back between my shoulder blades which causes severe muscle spasms which in turn affects the spinal nerves and causes pain in my stomach. This condition has been escalating in severity over the years, sometimes the pain becoming so unbearable as to cause Emergency Room visits. Normal daily tasks could bring on a spasm at any time and have pretty much kept me from having a normal life. The conventional medical treatment has been prescription muscle relaxers and pain killers, one of which was very powerful, potentially dangerous and only work marginally. In looking for alternative treatment I found Healing Wizdom and Tamara Marshall's medical massage. I had my first massage on March 25, 2008 which was wonderful and the first of continuing monthly treatments. The massages have greatly reduced the severity and frequency of the spasms and also have enabled me to greatly reduce my dependence and dosage of the pain medications. I no longer take muscle relaxers and the powerful pain killer and am able to lead a much, much more active life which is wonderful. Also, by days end my heels were aching. Since the beginning of the massage treatments that pain has disappeared. Tamara's medical massage has done wonders for me! Sincerely, David Kahler Doyle, CA
I have recently moved here and a friend came to visit so we had the basic facial with the 2 for 1 coupon for 1st time users. We both enjoyed it, the atmosphere inside the facial rooms and in the main area was wonderful, as were all the personnel. They all went out of their way to make us feel relaxed and pampered. We were offered delicious tea upon arrival and the facials were very complete. I've had facials in many spas across the country and these were very detailed-I was impressed. I did not get pressured sales pitches (as another review on a different website stated) even when the facial was done. I asked her about the products used and she wrote them down for me for future reference since I told her that I had plenty of facial products already. I can't wait to take my daughters when they come home from school-I especially like that they have make-up lessons since my daughters have asked about that. I was so impressed with the experience that I joined the club-I have never done that before and look forward to trying a different facial at my next appointment. I know that their products are top notch-I have seen them before in other top spas. PS-my friend is going to join the club in the city where she lives.
I have a hard time unwinding, but Healing Wizdom is a terrific place to relax. Though I have not yet engaged their other services (such as wax or hairdressing), I often overhear other customers gush about their experiences. I carry stress from classes and commuting, which often means lugging loads of books on my back all over town when I am not trying to commit them to memory. I currently receive massages from Jamie at Healing Wizdom. She has a magic touch that melts away the stress. Jamie creates a warm, comfortable environment. I feel as though the whole time is devoted just to me. Jamie is very open to feedback, and reminds me not to be shy but speak up if I prefer a different move or pressure. This has created a friendly rapport, which I have never had with any other masseuse. I never feel rushed. After every massage, I am presented with a cup of tea and an invitation to sit until I am ready to go. The staff are always exceptionally welcoming and accommodating, working with me to ensure I am well cared for and content. I highly recommend Healing Wizdom to anyone looking for a worth-every-penny massage at a great local business.
If you live in the Reno/Sparks even Tahoe area or are in town and need a message or any spa treatment, they have many. I have to highly recommend "Healing Wizdom". I have had the pleasure of becoming a regular of "Annie's".. Annie Is very sweet , with a warm , caring and calming demeanor. Her massages are very relaxing I prefer a firm to deep tissue where needed or lighter . And Annie seems to be in tuned to my needs and know how much pressure and where I need it the most. Her technique is professional and very experienced .You can tell how much Annie loves what she does. I Always feel re energized, relaxed, and can't wait for my next message. Everyone at "Healing Wizdom "are helpful ,kind and always willing to make my time there a beautiful experience. In fact every time a friend or family visits I take them to "Healing Wisdom" to share my experience. Of course Annie is my favorite. But my Mom my Aunt have raved about all the other staff members. If you get the chance see Annie it's like going to a Majestic Island where you relax and get a great message. Thanks Annie
It seems these days sometimes you feel the personal touch is left out of everything you do anymore - especially when you go to a place of business. The staff at Bellissima Wigs REALLY DOES CARE!! I was privileged to their services through my Aunt who just went through her second bought of chemo and radiation treatment. She lost her hair and Alan and his staff at Bellissima took it very personal and made sure she had the care, kindness and personal touch she needed to be fitted for a wig. It was a difficult process for her, and they just made it so comfortable and easy. In addition to the fine work they do at the salon, I found out they all volunteer for several different programs that assist patients dealing with various types of cancer. If you're just looking for wig to sexy up your life....or looking for a wig to deal with your hair loss, or looking for a compassionate soul to help you with wigs as a result of treatment, this is the place to go! You will ALWAYS be greeted with a special kindness, a unique understanding, and some very happy and fun-loving people. I love this place! YOU will too!
This salon was so adorable! The stylists there were funny and welcoming, and are great at what they do. I colored my hair from dark brown all the way to vibrant red, and there were no spots where the bleach didnt take out the color. The red hair dye that this salon used had stayed in my hair for almost a month without fading, the vibrant red color had lasted longer than any other salon's color could manage to do, and I wash my hair every other day! The owner had snacks available for my two daughters who came in with me, and the salon set up with two flat screens was amazing, so the kids could snack and watch cartoons while I got my hair colored and my nails done while watching Lifetime! The prices are way better than regular salons, and the quality of their work is amazing! I can't tell you how happy I am with the services I got at Shear Elegance, I even referred this place to many of my friends who change their color drastically like I do, and they always seem to make it perfect! You'll feel so at home at this salon, you won't want to try any other place, I guarentee that 100%! (:
I am from Hawaii and I go to college in Dallas. I was visiting Reno for Thanksgiving and I was looking for a good hair salon and these reviews for Creative Colours were really good. These reviews didn't let me down and since the lady who was supposed to cut my hair accidentally overbooked (no big deal), I had Tamara cutting my hair. She gave me her honest opinion and so did the lady who was supposed to cut my hair. They were all helpful and they made sure I knew how they were cutting my hair and what would work for my face. The hair cut that I was going for was pretty drastic because I went from mid back length to under my chin length. Tamara gave me options and suggestions that would best suit my face and everything worked out well! Seriously! Tamara was a great hair stylist and everyone in the shop was super chill/laid back. In addition, my a-line cut came out so cute! Thanks! If I'm ever in need of a hair cut and I'm back in Reno, I'll definitely go back to Creative Colours.
