Great Salon! I have been going to Diesel for about a year now and I've been extremely pleased with my haircuts. I've been going to Telima and she has done an amazing job styling my long hair and bangs. Recently, I was telling Telima that I wanted to lighten my hair, but that previously I had a bad experience with highlights at another salon and that I wanted something more natural like a sun kissed look. She recommended that I get Balayage done, which is where the stylist paints strips of your hair free hand so that it looks more natural and requires less maintenance. I went ahead and got it done and I love it! I have gotten several compliments and it looks so natural like I've just been laying out in the sun. Overall, if you are looking for a modern salon, where the stylists actually listen to you and make recommendations that meet your needs then I recommend Diesel Salon and Telima.
I had Joshlyn as a hairstylist and she was amazing. This was a first time visit for me and I used a Groupon so I was nervous. But the entire experience was great. I like how they send you a reminder text about your appointment. The atmosphere was really cool. It looked like the inside of a body shop which was different but really cool. I would recommend this salon to anyone looking for a great haircut/style/color for a reasonable price! :) I will Definatley be back.

I love Diesel Salon for both haircuts and for color!
I have very long fine hair, so it is really hard to find a stylist that knows how to properly cut my hair, so that it looks both stylish as well as thick and full of volume. I was so happy when I found Diesel Salon and my stylist Telima. Since, I've been going to Telima I have been extremely happy with my haircuts.

I was extremely skeptical, but went ahead and got it done last month. I love it! I have gotten several compliments and it looks so natural like I've just been laying out in the sun.

I've been going to Candice for about 5 years now. She is a great stylist and every time I walk out of the salon I love my hair. I am one to change up my hair a lot and she has great ideas. i would recommend Diesel to anyone. I have people coming up to me a lot and asking me where I get my hair done. Thats a great compliment. The salon is decorated real cute and the staff is friendly.

I had heard a few things about the salon before I came in for my first visit. Actually, I was referred to the salon through one of my roommates and she said that they have some great hairstylists. I would have to say my first experience was a good one and I will definitely give them another shot next time.

I decided to buy a groupon fro Diesal after reading all the wonderful reviews and I now Love this place and am a loyal customer! The building is amazing and decorated like an old warehouse-the hair colorist even have vintage toolboxes that hold their tools. They use high quality products and even sell some amazing skin care brands.The prices are fair, but they add up quickly. Make sure if your hair dresser asks you if you would like a toner or such you ask for prices before you agree. Stephanie is great and genuinely cares what her customers think about her work. She takes her job seriously and is determined to make sure her clients have a positive experience.

I've been seeing Candice for the last 4 haircuts & one color. She is such a nice person and really talented. I use to dread getting my haircut...never knew if I was going to get the cut I wanted but now, I look forward to going. The staff is welcoming, very friendly, a great atmosphere. A truly enjoyable experience. I highly recommend it!

Head to Diesel Salon and ask to see Telima. She is an awesome stylist. She is always so friendly and ready to stike up a conversation with her clients. She always listens to my ideas of how I want my hair to look and she's also ready with suggestions that might improve the look of my hair.
She doesn't mind that I keep my hair pretty boring. And she's also willing to forgo using product on my hair when I've asked her to leave it out.
She is super sweet, funny, and I always leave Diesel Salon very happy and excited about my new ""do"". I highly recommend seeing Telima for a great hairstyle!

I went in for highlights and a hair cut. I came out $290 later with an 80s Jheri Curl and zebra like highlights. I asked the stylist to give me a blow out and flat iron my hair to which she responded, ""I'm way too lazy for that"". I thought she was kidding...she wasn't. For someone who's supposed to be the ""resident expert"" on curly hair, she was probably the worst stylist I've come across in years. I'm back to my 45 minute trek to see my old stylist.
