I have been looking for a new salon and have decided to try Salon Tru mainly because of the salon's reputation. I scheduled an appointment for a lip and chin waxing and haircut. I have had waxing done by many different salons before and I have to say this was the worst waxing job that I ever had done. 2 days after the treatment the left side of my lip is still swollen and red, it itches, and have red bumps all over. This has never happened to me before. Needless to say the room did not appear very clean and sanitary (the wax holder was dirty, the vent was all dusty, the bulb on the lamp was burned out, and instead of a decent sheet I had to lie down on some sort of a fleece fabric. I was very uncomfortable and now that I think about it I should have just walked out. The experience was so bad that I've decided not to have my hair done at this place. I understand that the wax technician is an independent contractor, but I don't think a reputable salon would or should tolerate such unsanitary conditions. I would never go back or recommend this place to my colleagues or clients.
Hi There! Made an account just for this! I promised I would come on here and both review and fan my stylist Stacey, who did do great work so here I am. I had my treatment recently. I couldn't help but read some of the other posts on here and as much as I loved my results agree with some of the things said about unfriendliness, especially with the receptionist. Sorry! I found the hair assistant to be adorable and my kind of girl! All of that said I DID have a really fantastic first time experience with the keratin smoothing treatment, which I upgraded to a full (I bought a groupon). It ended up costing me around 290 dollars + the 69 dollars for the groupon. Yikes, but hey I would say that what matters is that I walked out with GOOD hair. I'll admit that I may be trying out a few other salons because I like a good girl chat but know I can always venture back if it means I'll end up with beautiful hair!
Best blow out of my life! Stacey's assistant was super sweet!!! There are a few reviews calling the place old which is ridiculous, the entire vibe is charming and proper to old town scottsdale.
The receptionist came across as completely rude. I actually read another review with someone saying the receptionist had a bit of an attitude but honestly the girl was just rude! The receptionist actually rolled her eyes at me before telling me my stylist would answer my question (yes, it was just one.) A few girls waiting along with me, well we all gave each other the ""whoa, um, wow,"" look. I simply want to feel good coming into a place I'm about to spend upwards of 300 dollars in. I have to be honest and say I also found Stacey my stylist a bit cold ( I wasn't looking to make a bestfriend but one question about me would have been nice) another stylist who witnessed my uncomfortable expression actually whispered not to worry as she was always like that. It was really sweet and made me feel less awkward so that I could just focus on reading/texting comfortably. I am a ""happy person"" and I do like the niceties that come with having a relaxing salon experience

I have lived in Scottsdale for a little over a year now and hadn't found my ""go to salon""....that is until I found Kiley and Salon Tru. My friend and her husband both see Kiley and have had great experiences, so I decided to make an appointment.
Pro's: Kiley was attentive and she is very skilled. I am very happy with my cut and color. The salon is beautiful, and overall good atmosphere
Con's: I would have given 5 stars, except I was not impressed with the way I was treated at the front desk. I was ignored when I walked in by the young lady, and wasn't offered a refreshment until my stylist Kiley took me to her chair.
Overall my experience was good, and I already have my next appointment booked with Kiley

I just recently moved to the Valley and had heard wonderful things about this salon. I had several bad experiences with other salons, and decided to try it again, and I am SOO glad I found Kiley.
She really listened to what I wanted, and gave me the most beautiful color and I really am enjoying my new haircut as well. I can't say thank you enough!! You won't be dissapointed!

I am writing this review to give 5 stars for the services of Shana Dee Brown at Salon Tru. I can honestly say that she is an expert in hair color, and I was highly satisfied and extremely relieved to find her. Please read on: First off, I have been a devoted and loyal fan of Aveda products for many years. What I didn't realize is that the level of Aveda salon services can differ so drastically due to the poor corporate structure of Aveda. I moved to Scottsdale from San Francisco one year ago. In San Francisco I entrusted the care of my blonde, highlighted hair to one Aveda stylist for 5 years. Upon my move to Scottsdale, I had the only two horrendous hair experiences at two different Aveda Salons. The first horrendous experience was Icon Hair Architexture in the Summit Center, Scottsdale; the second horrendous experience was at 2BUSALON at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Both claimed to be Aveda Salons. At 2BUSALON, the hairdresser, Crystal, had essentially no Aveda experience when she was referred to me by their receptionist. She was ""coached"" by the other stylists during my appointment. This was after I asked for an experienced senior level Aveda hairdresser, and was told by their receptionist that ""everyone"" was Aveda trained. When I left 2BUSALON, after 4 hours of ""on the job training"" my beautiful blonde hair was orange! I had to have this color corrected by my stylist when I returned to San Francisco for a visit, but was told I had to wait for at least a month because of the damage done. My other horrid experience was at Icon Hair Architexture Salon, by their stylist Marnie. After an initial consultation with Marnie, she decided mid way through the highlight experience to apply a base in a ""cool"" tone rather than the usual ""warm"" tones that my former hairstylist had supplied her with the colors she has used for 5 years. She decided not to inform me in this decision. Unfortunately Marnie advised me of this as she was removing the foils, and told me that in her opinion, this looked more ""natural."" I advised her that if I wanted to be dishwater blonde ""natural"" I wouldn't be sitting in her chair. I was fuming!
I am absolutely thrilled to find Shana Dee Brown and Salon Tru. She is a well experienced color educator for Aveda, and I could tell immediately that the entire staff had a loyal client following. I felt welcomed by the front desk, and I knew instantly I was in the right place. Shana put me at ease during the consultation process, and after the color and beautiful hairstyle (I have long layered hair), my hairstyle lasted three days. The color is still beautiful, and I have had many compliments. I did read a couple negative reviews of the physical appearance of the salon, and I would completely disagree. The Salon Tru is in Old Town Scottsdale where the buildings are quaint adobes. This Salon is clean, beautiful, welcoming, well ventilated and comfortable. I pre-booked my next appointment, and I would say that the fees are very reasonable for Scottsdale, Arizona.

I'm not going to lie, the thought of someone messing up my cut and color absolutely terrifies me! Not only did Allison cut, color and highlight my hair EXACTLY the way I described, but I left looking a MILLION times better than I ever have! Aside from being a phenomenal stylist, she's super cute and personable at that!
Before going to Allison, I very rarely bought the products that were used on my hair. Since she has taken the time to explain why she uses each product and what it actually does, I have now implemented all of them into my daily routine. :o)

I had an amazing experience with Kiley at Salon Tru, and I wanted to share it with everyone. I was making a big change in my cut and color, and was very nervous as it was my first time at the salon. Kiley was very professional,knowledgable, and caring. She listened to what I wanted, and gave me a great haircut and the most fabulous color! I found my stylist!!!!

Krista Severson at Salon Tru is an awesome stylist. She spends the time it takes to do a fabulous job. All of her attention is on her client, and she is absolutely incredible. She colors my hair so beautifully that I always receive compliments. I look forward to my next appointment!!

I just had the Brazilian Gloss Blow Out. I love it!!!!! Colleen did such a great job, as always! I knew I would like it, but I seriously I love it. I have naturally curly and frizzy hair (not fun). But now with this blow out I have soft shiny hair. It only takes me 15 minutes to style my hair and it looks just as good as it did when Colleen did it! I am so happy with the outcome. Thanks Colleen you are the BEST!!!!

Krista recommended this product for my thick, curly, poofy hair and it worked beautifully...I now have sleek, shiny, straight hair and I LOVE IT!! Blow drying my hair has been cut in half and I could not be more happier. This is worth every penny spent! (She's also an excellent colorist & hair stylist) THANK YOU Krista!!

Thank you to Colleen and Tru Salon for the super fantastic experience that I had at their salon.
1st - the customer service is top notch! I just moved from Orlando and they were able to set me up with an appt. very last minute. Why this is top notch, I had so many requests, time restrictions, color, someone who knows how to style short hair and all requests were met without hesitation. Once I was there everyone was very friendly and seemed to like their job and it showed.
2nd - Ask for Colleen! She was so excited that I had come in with short hair and she LOVES to style short hair. She put me at ease and was not nervious at all that someone new to me was coloring and cutting my hair. We all know how nerve racking it can be finding someone new to style our hair. As long as I am in AZ she will be the one cutting my hair!

I moved to AZ in 1999. I have always gone to a Aveda salon because of the product and quality/style of cut.
I found Salon Tru after many bad hair cuts/color... Krisa is a Master Stylist and can work her magic on anyone.
I just sit in her chair, tell her my requirements, and let her do her thing. I have NEVER been disappointed with the cut or color style she has given me.

Colleen Robenstine has definitely won me over with her talent. I'll admit, I used to get my hair done wherever was cheap and convenient at the time, and would do my color with a box at home. I liked it, but realized it didn't last NEARLY as long or look nearly as good as when I got it done here. Colleen has put two sets of extensions in my hair so far, and I know I'll keep going back for more! I absolutely love it, and she picked a great color for me, as well as matching my hair color to them perfectly. Thanks Colleen!

Colleen Robenstine has been doing my hair for years now. I didn't think it was possible but, she outdid herself again! After a horrible experience with box color, Colleen came to my rescue. She not only fixed what I ruined but, she turned it into a beautiful masterpiece! Colleen is not only a great person but, an amazing Stylist! She truely is talented!

I always have the greatest experience at Salon Tru Scottsdale with hair stylist, Allison Garzella. She does such a fantastic job with my hair that people compliment on it weeks after I get it done, no joke. What I love about Allison is that she knows what I want. I am not a pro in any means when it comes to hair so I just give her a short description of what I think Im might want and she knocks it out! Plus I like how she doesn't take a lot of time doing my hair either. She is quick, this day and age we are all in a hurry, have so much going on in our lives that we don't have time to spend a half a day in the salon. While I am at the Salon Allison does keep the conversation flowing, so it makes my experience so much better! Thanks Allison your the best!

I have been going to Jena for quite some time now, I have to admit I will never change my hairstylist again...learned my lesson that's for sure ( I will continue to keep goin to Jena for as long as I can ) .. Jena knows exactly what she's doing and what looks good on me...she knows the right trends to follow and keeps up with the right style as well...just look @ her. ;) she does my color and style, as well as my extensions...which I just started having her do, and I must admit I absolutely love them and her...she for sure knows what she's doing and looks great while doin it......Jena def was born to be a stylist :) xoxox
Thank you so much Allie!
I've been looking for someone that could make my hair look good my whole life. I've always thought if I only had nice hair I would really love how I look. I've spent ridiculous amount of money on so many of these so called ""great "" sylists in the past and always my hair ended up looking the same.
After I went home from the salon... my husband actually picked me up and kissed me like we were in college again. He's been doing the dishes every single night since. I feel like a beautiful woman again.
Thank you for showing me I still got it.
Go to Allison Garzella girls. She'll give you the beautiful hair you always had and nobody has ever seen.
I'll see you in a couple weeks girl. I'm never letting you go!
Go to this Salon!!!
Ask for Allison Garzella!!!
(Not only is she hot, but she made my hair look soooo awesome. My girlfriend went to her after me and OMG!!! Lets just say we spend more time in the bedroom!!) *_*
P.S. You will get compliments from everyone!!!
Im new here and I was looking for new a new stylist to give me what Ive always had.
I like my hair and I didnt want it changing. I brought a picture and showed it to Allie. I told her this is what I want. Nothing fancy just this. Exactly this. I was seriously doubtful she would be able to give me exactly what I wanted. Ive been thru a ton of stylists.
I have to say. She is very very good. My hair looks exactly like the picture I showed her. Like she photo shopped my head or something. This girl needs to be doing hair for the celebs.
Im going back to her for life. You should do the same.
