Best Mother F#@$ing Salon Ever – The atmosphere is amazing, the people are fantastic. I am getting older and was looking a little outdated, they made perfect suggestions on how to chang my look and update my immage. Best haircut ever. Other salons make me feel like they used a Flowbee, or Suckcut. I really felt like a King while I was in the salon.
Smart stylist and great with color. – I just recently moved here from out of state and had to leave my hairstylist of 15 years. Coming to a new town is always hard and I wanted a new look to make the change complete. I made the overwhelming mistake of going to the Ingram mall to have my color done and it was an absolute disaster. I was orange at the roots and almost black throughout the rest. I didn't even bother to let them cut it. I came back the next day and was told that I could have it redone but that it may be a while before I could get in. I thought seriously of just wearing a paper bag.
Later that day an acquaintance told me of Salon Io and that they could probably help me. I was doubtful but decided that they couldn't do any worse. When I went in I was enthusiastically greeted by Kyle, who told me that it wouldn't be a problem at all to fix my hair. I thought he was just being positive and a bit boastful. But when he was through it was absolutely beautiful. I had a gorgeous chocolate brown with carmel highlights, and it felt so soft. He was cute and sweet and treated me like a queen. I think he's a real keeper, very knowledgeable as well.
Unfreindly conceited Staff – The only reason I go to this boreing salon is because Sierra has been my hairdresser for nine years.You never feel welcomed and staff in unfreindly. if you want a good hair cut, Sierra is the one to see. Forget about the atmosphere.
Great stylist/// unprofessional salon – This is the first time I have ever posted a review and i am not much of a writer so sorry.... I love my hair stylist at salon io, but I have to say I really don't like the salon. I have been getting my hair done with Sierra for over 2 years and she has always made me happy. My hair looks great, she always keep our appt. time (unlike most other stylist I have observed over the years), she knows what she is doing and has a really great personality.
My problems with the salon are that when I call to set up an appt. some times I have to leave a message, and it could be 2 days before someone gets back to me and I can tell that who ever I am talking to does not want to be helping me. For a while they had a really nice girl making the appt. but ever since she left it has been hard getting someone on the phone to work with me, without giving me attitude. Its strange how the owner never greats clients or anything. They stay on one side of the salon and the rest of the staff and there clients on the other. It is not a warm friendly or fun place. My most resent appt. was what really bugged me. I had called and made an appt. over the phone 3 weeks prior , I talked to the only guy in the salon...I wrote the appt. on my calendar . I made arrangements to get off work a little early, have someone else pick my kids up,when I got to the salon I was told I didn't have an appt. and that Sierra didn't work that day. I was so mad that I just left. I called sierra a few days later and told her what happened. She apologized and said it happened way to often since they don't have a receptionist. She made arrangements to stay late that Saturday to get me in. I think this is so unprofessional for a salon, I mean hello, most your business is appt. get it together. As much as I love my stylist, I may start looking for a new salon :(
Great cut and color – I just got the best cut and color. I went to salon Io and saw Sierra based on a friends recommendation and I must say that I am so THRILLED!! It took about 2 weeks to get the appointment time I need but I am glad I waited, and I made sure to book my next two appointments before I left! The salon is pretty and clean. Everyone is nice and you don't get the feeling of a whole lot of drama going on. I would recommend Sierra to everyone!
Absolutely Amazing with Color and Highlights! – I had some color and highlights done at Salon Io and now I'm addicted! My stylist (Kyle) gives me absolutely amazing color. I've had tons of compliments -- even from other hairdressers. I've never liked getting my hair done because it always feels like it takes forever, but Kyle was so much fun to be around that it seemed to go really fast. I'll definitely be going back.
Love my hair – I really love my hair for the first time in years!!! Ever since I stared going to SIERRA at Salon io I have been so pleased. She always takes good care of me. I never feel rushed even though I know she is very busy. Sierra always makes sugestions and teaches me how to style my hair. She is awesome with my hi lites. They look so natural and healthy. And her hair always looks great and funk. My only conplaint is that everytime I call to set up an appointment I have to leave a message, but someone always gets back to me its just strange that they just don't get someone to answer the phone. But I love My stylist so much that its ok!
Amazing Highlights – I have been going to Salon Io since it opened. My Hairdresser Erin gives me amazing Highlights, Lowlights and Haircuts. She knows when to make my hair a little lighter for spring, and a little darker for fall. She always has new ideas for what to do next to my hair to keep me in style. I love the time and attention she gives me. She is the owner and really takes an interest in the people that visit, and the staff that works there. Its a wonderful place to spend some time.
BEST SALON – I LOVE this salon. My hairdresser ERIN is the most creative and talented hair dresser that I have ever seen. She listens, and knows what she is doing. She is also very busy, but well worth the wait. This Salon truely helps you relax and look your very best.
Thank you for the recomindations – I really had a great cut and color at salon Io with Sierra.After reading all the reviews I made an appointment.I have been stopped by so many people this week asking where I get my hair done! Thats the best feeling!! The only problem was I had to wait a week for my appointment....but thats how you know they are good right? So I made my next 2 appointments before I left. Thanks to everyone on here for telling me about Salon Io. They all seem to be really good hair stylist and a little busy. But I never felt rushed and like they say Sierra really is great!
