Jodie royally F*cked up my hair, 12/19/2014

When I first walked in the receptionist was nice, even asked if I wanted something to drink. I told her I'd like a water since I'd been running around all day doing errands and hadn't had anything to... eat or drink yet. She said sure and left, but she must have forgotten because I sat for 30 minutes waiting and when she returned she sat back down at her desk without a glance in my direction. Finally when Jodie-or JD-the "Master" stylist came out to greet me, I spent maybe 2 minutes talking her through the cut I wanted before she rushed me off to the shampoo area. A good stylist typically spends 10-25 minutes consulting you on what you want done-less than that only if it's very simple or you're a regular. I even brought several pictures of the haircut, and even walked her through how difficult my hair is to work with. Instead of listening she went straight into parting my hair and started cutting away before making sure she knew exactly what I needed. I am not a difficult person, I'm polite and funny to be around, and I tip extremely well. (a tip from me is between $15-$20 and I'm not a wealthy person by any means) I even went

Worst Experience, 5/31/2011

I don't know if the girl who did my hair was just incompetent, but it was the worst experience I have ever had. I spent 4 hours at the salon only to leave with a head full of product, half dry hair,... a terrible hair cut and a sorry excuse for low lights. I bought a groupon, which was what first attracted me to the salon, and after the experience, I tell people to STAY AWAY. I had to brush out my own hair at the salon because the "stylist" got it tangled so badly. It was probably the worst knot I had in my life. Overall awful experience.

Will never go anywhere else!

When I first came to this salon, back in 2000, it was my first time ever getting my hair highlighted. Ever since then, James has been my colorist & stylist! I've had to go to other salons when James moved away for a short period & now that he is back, I am so excited! My hair is always shiny and healthy after leaving Chris Nicholson Salon! I would highly recommend James to everyone!

Not a good experience

So I went in for a color correction trying to get red back to a light or medium brown. Niki was my stylist, and while she was nice, she is not a good colorist. On my first visit she made my red hair almost black, which looked terrible with my fair skin. I returned for them to fix, and told her I wanted it lighter - a medium or light brown. At this point, she said it was my fault, that I didn't realize my ends were so dark. However, to fix it, she took the color out and added back a warm light brown, and now it is a light red/orange. After doing my own research, I realized to get the red out she should have used an ash color. Also the salon acted very annoyed at me returning - and it also annoyed me that she styled and dried my hair away from the mirror both times, so I couldn't see the results until the last minute. The total cost of this was $150 - and for what???? I'm still going to have to get this fixed but don't trust going back to Chris Nicholson and in all truth I want my money back. What a waste of time and energy.

Excellent

I will admit that I am very picky when it comes to my hair. My wife and I had an excellent haircut. Michael was awesome.

Best Haircut

I have very difficult hair and have had trouble finding a good stylist, but Stephen has done the best job of anyone I know. The salon is new and nice and they are very friendly.

Stephen

Both my friend and I are loyal clients to Stephen. I have never been happier with the way my hair looks. I have never had so many compliments. The salon is clean and the staff is friendly. We have referred several people to him and will continue to do so.

AWFUL!!!

I was absolutely disgusted beyond words to witness the way the owner of this place spoke to a customer! There was a woman in there getting her hair done who was with a small child. The child started to get upset at the end of the visit, which was really not a big deal...I have children and it happens. This ignorant man, Chris Nicholson himself, approached the woman and told her to leave! He yelled at her and told her to leave! I have never seen anyone treat another human being with such disrespect. When the young woman (who was also pregnant) was paying, she again apologized and told him that he did not have to yell at her and humiliate her. His response? "You humiliated yourself"! The woman was in tears, the place was crowded...I will never, NEVER go to this place again, and I will certainly tell all my friends, co-workers, anyone who will listen, about the poor customer service. I honestly was more bothered by the way this man spoke to the woman than I was by the crying child.

Michael is great!

I went to this hair salon for the first time last week. Michael cut and colored my hair and did an awesome job. The color is perfect for my skin tone and the cut is fantastic - I have very thick, curly, coarse hair and not many stylists can cut is correctly. I'm extremly picky about hair stylists and I will be returning to Chris Nicholson and Michael for my next cut and color.

Perfect Salon!!!

I'm not sure what the person below is talking about. I've been going to Chris Nicholson Salon for 5 years and have never had one problem with starting on time. Maybe she needs to take her issue up with the stylist and not bash the whole salon. Chris Nicholson is wonderful and has been doing my hair for years. He's so kind and the salon is super nice! I've used a couple other stylist in the salon when Chris is out and they always did a wonderful job and gave me the haircut and color I asked for. LOVE THIS SALON!!!!!

On time start.......good luck.

If you plan on starting on time or starting at all you've come to the wrong place. For 6 years I've been showing up to this salon and my stylist was either double booked, running late or not there at all. The times I was lucky enough not to have had issues, the hair cut was good. After years of listening to him complain about how bad the staff at the front desk was, I was glad to find a new salon.

Chris Nicholson is experienced and talented !

Chris Nicholson is a true talented hair dresser.My husband goes to him and my daughter will soon.I am so disappointed in the Salons around town.It is so hard to find a hairdresser with true passion for their job & clients. I had to get a very short boy cut and I went from blonde to dark brown almost black just to get it back healthy{so not me} after my shoulder length blonde locks fell out in the sink at Bob Steel Salon on Barrett Pkwy Oct.06 due to chemical damage by one of their very arrogant & careless high level employees.Going to get back on track with Chris, can't really trust anyone else.Thank goodness for real hairdressers! What a long road to recovery physically and emotionally after the damage but I hope to get a HEALTHY cute blonde bob soon working with Chris . Thanks Chris Nicholson Salon!

Not recommended for older crowd with shorter cuts

Had cut from Stephen (so personable I really didn't check out cut before leaving) but he did not cut around ears and bangs were left mid-eye level which is just a nuisance. Jennifer was earliest available touch-up but after 10 minute wait, it was evident she wasn't going to be available anytime soon on a foil color job so I left.
