I would not recommend!
Hi, in response to your note. I never stated on the groupons response that "I get my hair done in the hood". So, where did you get that information? There is nothing in my response that states that I said that. So, I think you should be careful and refrain from making statement that you did not hear from me! Furthermore, "when you state your salon is upscale and you are not trying to be like the hood" What does that mean? It does not matter what location you get your hair done it is all about the expertise of your stylist. A salon is a salon and you are all hair stylist.
In my response, I was not pleased with the cut and style. As African American female, who has had short hair for a long time and who knows what a professional style is suppose to look like, I was expecting something better. But, I was trying to give the stylist the benefit of the doubt. If you are a "expert stylist" you should not have to walk a stylist through your style and cut. Let me list what went wrong. So, the next time when the stylist styles African American hair she will know what to do. These are basic African American todo's
1. Once you shampoo and rinse our hair use a wrap lotion and wrapping paper and then put us under the dryer, this make the sides and back lay down, especially if you have short hair.
2. Always use professional curling irons not a miniature Sally's brand flat iron. Most African American stylist use these curling irons with a stove kit. See below. This is basic knowledge. (But I was trying to give the stylist the benefit of the doubt).
3. I told the stylist to put some hair spray on my hair after finishing my style. I was referring to oil sheen, not holding spray. She had already used holding spray to get the curls in my hair? The holding spray just made my hair dry and sticky. I had to wash my hair when I got home.
4. If you are a "expert stylist" the only thing I need to tell you is "what hair style I want". Also, you do not need a picture posted on your station to follow a hairstyle.
I am stating these known facts because, if you are a stylist who wants to build up her clientele with black females, the stylist will have to do better than what she did with my hair.
These few things I stated are basic to a African African new stylist and I expected her to be able to provide those services. These are the reason that I will not return to your salon.
first of all i had a groupon........ I had an appointment with the salon on saturday. They called twice on friday to reschedule. I had the appt set for 3pm. Apparently they had the stylist double booked and she was going to work on two clients at once. That was fine....but when i got in the chair the stylist looked at my hair and proclaimed that it was more than one color. I told her that was because I had highlights before and I'd like to get the same thing done. She looked at me as if i were a crazy person. She was rude the whole time i was in her chair and acted as though i had committed some crime by wanting highlights on my previously colored hair (hello - it's been done before) I told her i would like her name and my groupon back. I will not ever go to this salon again - i went to another salon the same day - without an appt and experienced great customer service. The stylists name was Lee or Leigh or whatever. This place was a joke.
I feel good about myself again! – I just went to Christina for a fifth time to retouch my highlights and cut. She is always so sweet and considerate. I love going to her salon. She has done so much to lift the spirits of the place. Since my last visit she has gotten a full staff and a variety of services.
Another thing I love about that salon is that they are always doing events and charity fundraisers.
Go check out Onyx Salon. You will love it!
Best salon in Round Rock hands down!!!
This Place is Fabulous! – I attended their "Wine Down Wednesday" several weeks ago and loved the way the salon looked! Clean, uncluttered and beautifully decorated. Their staff was VERY friendly and enthusiastic! I booked an appointment for a few days later, and Christina cut my hair...she did a fantastic job - I will be going back! - again and again....
Carter Does an Amazing Job! – Carter is such an upbeat person and so are the others in the salon. You can have a glass of wine while reading a book while your color is being done, relax and just forget about the rest of the hustles of your day...( this is what I do!) I have only used Carter at Salon Valentine so I would reccommend Him I know he does great Hair!
Best Colorist, Stylist and Framesi Educator in Austin – Salon Valentine is a really cool salon conveniently located in North Austin. I specifically visit this salon to see Carter Lund. Carter is a fantastic stylist specializing in color, color correction and precision cuts. Carter has been a Framesi Educator for 11 yrs. He hosts educational seminars all over the U.S.and photo shoots where he is regularly featured in well known publications like "Ladies Home Journal." Carter is a true professional with amazing business acumen poising him to run successful salons and provide consulting services. When he is not teaching or maintaining clientele bases in Austin and L.A., Carter is attending seminars on the newest color and cutting techniques. He is a true veteran and knows how to correct any color snafu out there; including mine.
I am too young to have gray hair. But I do. I came to Carter after being fed up with my previous stylist's results. Carter patiently worked with me to achieve the results I desired. Today my hair feels like silk and my color is so stunning, my skin glows (even without make-up)! Carter's prices are excellent for the quality and experience you will receive. And he is extremely flexible with schedule. I used to do a lot of traveling for my job. He met me the day after Xmas at 7:00am last year! He manages to successfully balance his busy career with an awesome family.
Carter is simply the best. I would highly recommend him. You will leave with a smile. And the sweetest perk is that he hosts regular promotions like the current one he has going on (see details below). Come by Salon Valentine to meet Carter in his element and check out the gift basket you could win!
If you make the most number of Carter Lund client referrals by March 31st, you will receive:
* $300 Salon Services Free
* $300 Gift Basket with Framesi Products and a Chi Flat Iron (to name a few of the gifts included)
* Free Airfare and one night stay in sunny Phoenix, AR
great haircut – Carter Lund is a genius when it comes to cut and color. But beware... he has this thing with unnatural bright red. I gave him free rein once, and had a red in my hair that was a little extreme. Have an idea of the range of color you want, and he does the greatest job!
Will not be visiting again. – I have been here on a few occasions to get my haircut but after this most recent experience I definitely do not plan on visiting the salon again. I arrived early as I always do for my appointments, but was not once greeted during my wait. The entire staff saw me sitting there but did not acknowledge me until my stylist finished with her client and asked if I was getting my hair cut. The shampoo and cut was rushed as it seemed that the stylist might have been running behind, and at the end I was not even asked how I preferred to have my hair styled. After this experience I would rather venture to downtown Austin to get a great experience, both haircut wise and customer service, than drive just 5 minutes to this salon.
I have been visiting Salon Valentine for over 4 and a half years. The service has always been exceptional...this review surprises me. I suggest the individual who wrote this have the same integrity to contact the owner as she did in writing this review. I challenge them to do so.
simply the best service you could pay for!!!!!r – Carter Lund is the best hairstylist i have ever been to...and Ive been to alot in the Austin area. Carter moved from Trends salon just recently and I can tell you that Salon valentine is sooooooo cool. The decor is relsxing and the atmosphere is conducive to wanting to get Carterized...Thats what I call getting my hair done. carter doesnt just do your hair he creates a masterpiece using an Italian style method of cutting and coloring using the finest products on your hair. his scalp treatment are glorious!!!!! Carters ability to know exactly what color and tone to put on a persons head is PRECISE every time. Carter also educate other stylists on how to cut and color I noticed at the other salon his coworkers were consistantly asking him for his help. That definitely says volumes about his professionalism.
If you want to look your best and have an exciting time as well go see Carter at salon valentine
CARTER T LUND NOW AT SALON VALENTINE!!! MUCH BETTER LOCAL! – I love Carter, he is a genius. I would follow him anywhere. This salon is great, very clean, modern (yet warm), very fun. Matches Carters personality much better...
Bottom line.. its not the place, its the person behind the chair that counts.
Again last night, I gave Carter 'free artistic reign" to do what he feels best for my cut and color.. Again, he amazes me and never disappoints! It looks FANTASTIC, natural yet fun hues of brown and hints of red, nothing extreme, but just right for me... sassy, fun, flirty.... LOVE IT..
His 21 years exp and his accreditation as a World Wide FRAMESI ITALIAN COLOR specialist - pays off!
He is the best I have been to in years. I am faithful and proud to be colored and cut by this master!! Not to mention he really makes it a TRUE - "EXPERIENCE". Its not just a visit to get your hair done, its an "experience".... and did I mention the best hair wash ever! You have to go see him!
