    I have only gone once to this salon for a partial highlight and cut. I had a good experience here - I particularly liked my stylist, who was a) very good and b) offered suggestions to improve my color and cut, which I particularly appreciated. Im not an expert in this stuff and I rely on people who have a better eye than I do for what looks good. So I appreciated that. I also enjoyed the wash station - they have a dark-lit room with quiet music, and you can really relax while getting a wash. I've never seen that, but it's a fantastic idea. I did sort of get the inkling that they are trying to get you to sign up for extra services, which aren't cheap (conditioning treatments, full highlights, etc). So buyer beware in that respect, but you can always say no, so it's not that big a deal. Just be aware of what you are willing to spend when you walk in there. Otherwise, I loved it and I plan to go back :)

    Claudia is the BEST. She thoroughly impressed me with her talent, professionalism and kind, fun nature. This is my second time here with Claudia and I always leave having the best afternoon with her - and fabulous hair.Have to mention Gabby who washed + toned and massaged in the Lather Room. She was incredible. Finally the girl at the front desk (I’m sorry I didn’t get her name!) has been excellent both visits too.A little pricey but so worth it. Thank you ladies!Services: Hair colouring

    I was recommended to Tina at James Anthony Salon when my hair stylist moved out of state. I had some anxiety about trying a new salon and stylist, but this salon came at such high recommendation that I was optimistic. My appointment was with Tina and was scheduled on 9/16 at 1:15PM for highlights and a haircut. I wasn't seated until around 1:45PM, and it wasn't until about 1:55/2PM that I actually met Tina for the first time (the salon was very busy at the time, I get it, it happens). I do believe that Tina did a great job on my color and the Lather Lounge experience was very relaxing, however, my issue is with my hair cut. I asked for about 4 inches off at max with long, round layers. I was looking for them to be subtle, just to give my hair a bit of texture, and I expressed this when we discussed the game plan for my hair. After I left the salon and straightened my hair (I always wear my hair completely straight - for reference, at the salon my hair was dried with a rounded brush giving the ends a bit of a curl) I noticed that the "long round layers" are everything but. When completely straight, the layers are uneven, don't really blend with my hair, and there is a chunk missing on the right side layer. I am disappointed with my hair and I don't believe that this looks like a $100 hair cut. I'm not sure if this was an oversight due to the salon being so busy and Tina being rushed, or just a genuine mistake, but I wish this had been brought to my attention before I left the salon so it could have been corrected.

    Claudia rocks. She knows what suits me and I regularly get compliments on my cut. And, she's a joy to talk with.

    I am very annoyed at myself for not remembering the name of the stylist that did my daughter's hair, but she was awesome! Went in a few months ago, sorry guys for the late review. My daughter went to this salon to donate her hair to children fighting cancer ( this salon is one of few that do this), and her stylist was AMAZING. She was so sweet and caring, and my daughter's hair came out great. It actually still looks great now, months later. She's 13, so the cut made her hair really easy to manage (rolls out of bed and off to school). We will be returning.

    Went for my first appointment 7/11 through a recommendation. LOVED the appointment and how friendly Claudia was. She suggested a follow up appointment to achieve what I had wanted.. so I made a second appointment. I loved the idea that I finally found a salon that I even suggested my husband go and soon after my cousin even went! Well today, 8/22 was my follow up. Not that it’s anyone’s problem, but my life has been so chaotic with my dad being hospitalized and work I didn’t

    Just got home and wanted to write a review right away for this gem of a place. First off, the ambiance in the salon is just amazing. They have a specific room for hair washing and it's the most relaxing place. This lovely lady gave me a hair wash and head massage and I almost fell asleep. Claudia is a true rockstar. She gave amazing guidance and has maaaddd skills. We chopped off about 5-6 inches and I feel like a new person. Go check them out, you won't be disappointed!!

    Claudia is the best! She listens to what I am looking for and is always friendly and personable. I've been going to her for a year now, and it's been a rough year for everyone. She has helped me uplift myself, starting with an excellent cut and color. She's attentive to my ever changing requests as well. I also feel the salon takes proper precautions to keep clients safe during COVID. I will continue to come back for excellent results!

    I went to get a haircut from Claudia and halfway through it she told me how much she hates the hairstyle i'm getting, and how it disgusts her. It hurt my feelings and she also didn't execute the hairstyle she wanted. She clearly cut my hair with her opinion behind it, which i believe is incredibly immature and unprofessional. I would like her to fix her attitude/behavior. Your response was rude. fuck y'all

    I went in twice to get a haircut with Erica. She said she doesn't want to cut off my dried off ends or else the hair will get damaged. Well, because she didn't cut off the dry ends, my hair did get so damaged I ended up loosing a lot of length.
