Amazing salon.. but stylists don't always listen to you. – I reviewed on here a year ago and gave Visual Image the best review. After going to Visual Image for over a year and 1/2 now, I figured it was time to give a more updated review. Visual Image is an excellent salon.. their stylists are all very well-trained. If you're really trendy and you want the best, boldest hairstyle, please go to Visual Image! I got so many compliments on my hair on a daily basis from all sorts of random women. People constantly ask me what salon I go to. Ruthie, in particular, gives really great, bold styles.
However, I am switching to a different salon. The stylists just kept going bolder and bolder with my hair and it was just getting too crazy for me. Right now I have these crazy bright red streaks mixed in with my blonde and it's just really too much for me; if I was 16 I'd love it, but I'm 25 and I think I'm a little old to have my hair like this. I switched to a few different stylists and it was always so awkward for my old stylist to see me with a new stylist. They would always give me catty looks. But sorry, if a stylist isn't going to listen to me and give me what I want, I'm not going to continue service with them. I'm switching to Avalon Spa & Salon because I've heard great reviews from some of their customers. I'm hoping to go back to normal hair.
Warning: do not book yourself for a haircut/haircolor with a lower level stylist on a Saturday morning! The salon is so crowded on Saturdays that the stylists wind up fighting over the bowls to rinse out color treatment. If you're with a lower level stylist, you're at the bottom of the list to get your haircolor rinsed out. And sometimes the lower level stylists have to have their clients sitting in front of a mirror in an office chair instead of at their own station! How embarrassing!! I'm glad I was never one of those clients.
Best haircut – If you are ever in a desperate need for a haircut, Sanjay is the man to go to. He took the time to ask me questions, what I wanted out of my haircut, lifestyle, etc. The haircut he gave me is very natural and sexy, which looks good both styled and unstyled. He also gave me tips on how to keep my hair healthy and shiny! Will definitely go back to him!
Wonderful ! – I had my first appointment this past Saturday. Denise, a master stylist, both cut and highlighted my hair. April waxed my eyebrows. I am so pleased with both, and I definitely will go back. I tried going to the cheap strip mall beauty salons, and you get what you pay for. Today is my first day back in the office since my "makeover" and I am getting all kinds of compliments, and people are asking who the new employee is !!! Couldn't be more thrilled with the experience, haircut and color, and the way my eyebrows were reshaped.
waxing – I went here to get my eyebrows waxed and I came in looking like a werewolf, April did such a good job and she was very gentle, she was able to make my eyebrows look really nice also the price was good. I did not get my hair done here, but I was looking at all the stylists and the clients really looked happy with their hair, also the stylists really know what they are doing. The staff is very friendly and they offer several beverages while you wait, a bit pricey though, but its a bumble and bumble salon so its expected.
This is NOT a Spa! – This salon is not a spa. It is mainly a hair salon. So if you would like to be in a true spa setting you should look for another place.
