I went it yesterday w/ no appointment. They got me in right away and I had a great mani/pedi and an awesome facial. I can't wait to go back and get my next facial and maybe a new hair style. It's clean, they are friendly, they do a great job and it's affordable. You can tell the owner loves what she does. I felt so comfortable there I won't go anywhere else again.

I am so surprised that there are any negative reviews about Blondies. The salon is lovely, and Ambia is an absolutely amazing stylist! My son chooses styles inspired by Japanese Anime characters, and Ambia is able work from 2D drawings making the styles work with his hair. Spot on! Brilliant!

I LOVE this salon! They are hip, fashionable, friendly, and best of all affordable! I love the fact I can call and usually get an appointment scheduled the same week to take care of my nails, hair and brows all in one visit. Everyone makes you feel welcome, and treat you like a friend they've had for years. I highly recommend this salon!

This place was beyond horrible. Poor attitudes, poor service, not even close to a real value. Staff and manager were extremely rude. I am truly shocked with what I experienced here. I've read through the other reviews and one of the posters seems to be dead-on. The only positive reviews are from what appear to be friends or family, which would be an indication to me that I am likely not the only one that has had this experience there. I will not be back and I certainly WOULD NOT recommend this place to anyone.

Came down to Tempe while we were looking for houses in the South Tempe area and I decided to try this local salon. I'll give them 3 stars/average. Problem was there was nothing great about it for the prices there were charging. There was nothing horribly bad about it though, which is a plus for the shop. For the prices they get a single star. While I am sure people will probably go there and have nothing bad to say about the service I don't think they will be telling the world about it. If I stick to the "you get what you pay for" quote you unfortunately don't get much here for the money spent. For now I am still looking for my South Valley salon that can match my Scottsdale Salon needs.

The most recent review was left by someone who has never actually been to our salon. It's a rough business when you have competition in a starving economy. Several negative reviews have been left by a particular person about our salon for unknown reasons. The Blondies staff is ALWAYS friendly and professional. Stop in today and see for yourself... take 15% off your first visit!

The salon has an extremely talented staff and a wonderful owner that are all down-to-earth and made me feel comfortable - like I was a part of their family. I have been to a lot of different salons that "try" to cut my hair in a way that is not only the style I want, but that it also works well with my naturally wavy hair. Ambia is an amazing hair artist and I won't go anywhere else. Ladies & Gents - this is the place to go for a great haircut and an even better atmosphere.

I am a hairstylist that recently has stopped working in a salon and I now have my own studio... this makes for a difficult situation when I need my hair done. Kambrel cut my hair beautifully and I love getting my nails done with Andrea (the owner) and Carol does a great job on my eyebrows! It is SO hard to find great service especially when I myself am in the beauty service industry! I have very high expectations and all of them were met or exceeded at Blondie's! Try them out... you will see what an amazing staff Andrea has and how much she values her clients!

I recently moved to AZ and one of the things I was dreading most was finding a new stylist! This was the third salon I went to and was dreadind it due to the horrible overpriced services I first received in Scottsdale. I was so pleasantly surprised. I met the sweet owner (forgot her name) at my appointment which was rare and very comforting and Khambrel did an awesome job on my hair! She knew the best cut and style for MY hair type and listened well, but had good tips too! I am so relieved to have found a great salon and stylist here in AZ!! I'll be back soon :_)

I felt it was way over priced. I did get an ok cut, but then again it was not a very difficult one to do. Not sure if it was the owner or manager, but she was a bit rude and I am not sure why. If this is a service industry, how do you expect to keep customers this way? Funny enough, I am going to have to agree with a below post. The woman that cut my hair may have been friendly, but she smelled of alcohol. Hung over, I am sure. NOT the impression to place upon a first time guest. I will not be back! This place needs to figure this stuff out then try again.

Finally, a salon that actually educated me on my hair and how to manage it. I feel like I finally have the right shampoo/conditioner and styling products for my hair. I've never had someone explain, step by step, what they're doing and why. I was super happy with my experience.

I actually have had quite the opposite experience from the review below. Everyone is very friendly and up beat. The owner went above and beyond to make me feel as if I belonged and they enjoyed my company as much as I enjoyed theirs. The service is excellent! My stylist was very educated and up on all the newest trends. I am a new client but the staff made me feel as if I were an old friend. It was worth every penny!

Owner is stuck up. Service quality is OK. Stylists not what you would expect for the prices and they seem to be hung over both times I was in. I also found out all the reviews you will find have been submitted by the staff, their family and friends. Don't believe the reviews...
