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. Blessings

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 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
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.
I am one of those people that try and save money and wait until I can’t tolerate my hair anymore and then start calling reputable salons to see if someone can squeeze me in. I ran across Creative Colours on the internet, called and was able to get and appointment with Shirley Love. The atmosphere was friendly, cozy and comfortable. Shirley did a great job on my hair. I have one of those funky, short, platinum blonde haircuts which just because it is short, not everyone can perfect the cut. She was also very down to earth, friendly laughed and smiled a lot! You can tell she loves what she does. The salon also carries a product called DermOrganic ( Argon Oil Hair Treatments ) that work wonderful. For any of you that have totally had your hair fried from being bleached, this stuff makes it so soft and healthy looking. I give Shirley and Creative Colours a thumbs up and will continue going there for my pampering needs. P.S. It is affordable too!
I've had a few massages here over the years and so have some of my family members and the service/product have always been great. However, I recently had one of the best massages with Matthew. I had called on a Saturday in June and wanted a massage that weekend (as it was long overdue). I typically prefer a female therapist, but Matthew was available and the receptionist recommended him and I needed a massage. Healing Wizdom has always had 'good energy' and a pleasant experience, but Matthew really made it great by focusing on my tight areas and explaining some stretches I might try to keep loose. It was perfect and so I booked my next session in July (which I never do b/c I like having flexibility with my schedule) and that next massage was just as informative and relaxing. Matthew is a natural healer and I would recommend him to anyone looking to deeply relax and stretch out the body! Thank you Healing Wizdom!
Healing Wizdom is amazing! I came in a few months ago for a Brazilian bikini wax. I had never had any sort of wax before, and after doing some research I was understandably apprehensive. Shirley June was great. The technique they use (I don’t claim to understand it all) involves using oils to help loosen the hair. While it was uncomfortable, it was not painful. It went fast, and within minutes after the procedure I felt nothing uncomfortable. There was no recovery time whatsoever, no bruising, or any of the horrid things you read about. They also use great after products to sooth the skin and prevent ingrown hairs. I liked this so much that I’ve started regularly scheduling waxing at five week intervals. These later appointments go SUPER fast. They give you amazing tea after treatment and everyone is friendly and welcoming. I’ve been recommending them to everyone I know.
