I have been going to Shakti since November 2009, and got a new hair style. It came out great!! However, I have gone back several times since for a trim here or there, but it never looks the same as that initial cut. It seems everytime I go in there, they take less time on my hair cut/style. Last time I was there for a total of 20 minutes, including wash , dry cut and style. I was never so rushed in my life.
Also, you are all right. The receptionists are SNOBS, but yet they are all still there every time I go in.
Now, I am scheduled for a highlight and color and I am not sure what to do.

I went to Shakti a few years ago. I had a cut and color. The absolutely worst experience I have ever had! After the services were performed, I called my husband from the parking lot crying. My cut was the worst I have ever had and my hair was completely gray! LIKE A CRAYON!!! The ladies all stood around me saying how beautiful the color was. WHAT!!!!?? When I got home my 4 year old laughed and asked why I made my hair into witch hair!!! PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!

One of the best salon experiences I've ever had.........Starting at the door, they took my coat and made me feel special!! The receptionist was very accomodating and professional (short hair with glasses, don't know her name). I was pampered the entire time I was there...the shampoo/massage was incredible!!! I would recommend this salon to anyone.....one of the best haircuts I've ever had...not to mention the reasonable prices and again great service!!! Thank you Shakti staff for a job well done!!!

Yes, I have experience with Shakti and it is not a really good one though all the stylists were quite nice. But being nice does not mean being professional or good. I have lived in Europe and other cities in US, and never have I come across a salon with such an attitude and I always wonder why. Nothing is special or exceptional. They should do some benchmarking, because something is just not going right there. It starts with the receptionists, they are unfriendly and arrogant - sorry, if they do not like their job they shouldn't do it in the first place. Actually, I went there three times and each time I had to go back because I had to get color correction - and now I decided, enough is enough. The cut and color/highlights are always from mediocre to unacceptable. I am looking for another salon.

They are really rude and make me feel uncomfortable. I need to find a salon that does a good job and arent rude. I go there and I just feel so uncomfortable I want to run out of the chair with the dye in my hair. Does anyone know of a salon where they do a great job and arent jerks? Oh ya And I have to agree on that other persons review they do talk about the clients I heard them while I was in the chair. I spent almlost 300 bucks there with color,cut ,shampoo and I got treated Like a piece of crap. They are really snobby. I will not spend my money there again.

Every time I go to Shakti they give me attitude. The receptionist is horribly mean and the stylist are just as bad. They are waaay over priced and the experience is dreadful. Horrible customer service and terrible coloring, Not to mention when you ask for a trim, they layer your whole entire head. AND they talk about every client that comes and goes.

I went to this salon ,because of the hype of the area only to be let down and felt like I was a annoyance instead of a paying customer....receptionists at the desk are very cold and untouchable ..acted like I was bothering them instead of paying them for overpriced services and snobby attitudes ..I have gotten better service at the beauty school in Wilkes Barre....

I've been going to Shakti for years. They have a reputation for being a well high class salon. Very expensive, and very unfriendly receptionists. I've been going because of the fancy reputation but now I have realized, that I have wasted so much money for having almost nothing done to my hair. I come out looking exactly the same every time. The only thing that has changed was the amount in my account.

If you are looking for the best facial Wyoming Valley has to offer, Shakti matches that need. Ted is a master, with the training needed to match your skin's needs to the proper blend of moisturizers and treatments. This facility does not disappoint. Prices for this outstanding service are average.

I decided to go to this salon because I really liked someones hair that goes there. They have their hair colored by Margie. I was nervous to switch salons because I have had several bad experiences with color. I have to say that Margie did an excellent job, as others have posted on the internet. She is also very friendly and personable. Sammy cut my hair and was also nice . Just wanted to give this feedback for those considering going here.I would highly recommend it and I must say I am picky.

Has a day spa environment with very plesent stylists. Haircuts are expensive and nothing special. My current hair stylist is cheaper and does a much better job with my hair. Receptionists are busy and not very friendly. They seem very snobish. Hair products are priced high. They also offer many other services like mails, massages, etc.

PROS: Nice environment, friendly stylists
CONS: Expensive.

Shakti is a hair salon located in Kingston. I have mixed reviews of this place. I have never actually gotten my hair done here, but a few people I know have. Some people's hair comes out looking great, while others, like a relative of mine, doesnt even look like anything was even done to it. And the one time it even had a green tint to it after she got highlights put in. She basically wasted $90, but she still goes back.
