I moved here from Boston and was so scared to go to a new hair stylist. After reading a great review about Brittany Dion I deceied to try her out. She was amazing!!! She gave me such attention. She repeated everything I told her I wanted before she did anything. I knew we were on the same page before my highlight and cut started. She really does educate you on your hair. I bought the products she suggested and they really do work. I will never go to anyone else EVER again!! Even if I move again I will come back just to see her! Try it yourself you won't be disapointed!

Pros: Everything

It's been one month since the haircut and I am still so upset with the results. I had an appointment with a hairdresser (not a student) and she successfully destroyed my hair. I had long hair that was one length with a little angling in the front. I asked the girl to give me a trim (less than an inch) and advised that having an even haircut was very important because I like things to be symmetrical. Based on the results, the girl did not listen to a word I said. She cut short random pieces of hair on the right side of my head and cut the back into a V-shape. I estimate that she took off 3 inches in some places and 5 inches in other places. All the cutting was in the back of my head and she had me facing the window so I really had no clue what she was doing. I thought she was making it all very even. I nearly fell off the chair when she turned me to the mirror. She told me that her thought process was to "texturize" my hair. As soon as I left, I called Carmen Carmen and they cut it even. Unfortunately, I can only wait for the very short pieces on the right side of my head to grow out along with the rest of my hair. I will never step inside Modern Day Salon again.

I have had sooooo many bad haircuts. I had lost hope of ever getting a good one. A friend of mine to told me to go to Brittany Dion at Modern's Heast Tower location. She told me it was a little pricey but her and all of her co workers go to her and she's the best. I have to admit after 100 horrible haircuts I had my doubts. My friends hair however is adorable. So, I took her advice and went. It was the best experence I have ever had at a salon. Everyone was so nice! Brittany made me feel comfortable with her from the first minute. She sat me down and looked me in the eye and asked me questions no stylist has ever asked me. Now when I think back to the questions she asked I can't believe no one ever did. We talked for at least 10 minutes before my shampoo. I knew at that point my hair was going to look great. She really wanted me to be happy and wanted to make sure she knew what it would take to make me happy. After she cut it she explained everything she was putting in my hair, what it would do, and why I needed it. Then she even tought me how to blowdry my hair the right way. It's been two weeks since my cut and it still looks great! The best part is I can make it look great! I went in hoping for a good haircut and came out educated about my hair. No one ever tought me anything! I never knew what a diffence it makes to know your hair. I did everything wrong for years. Now I do everything right! Thanks to Brittany I have the best cut I have ever had and I LOVE my hair for the first time in my life !!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: You come out feeling like you are in charge of your hair

Cons: NONE

My husband scheduled a facial for Mother's Day and I was looking forward to relaxing. It was the worst facial that I have ever had. It was so DISAPPOINTING!!!! The ladies name was Sudi and she was extremely rough, not relaxing at all. It was a thirty minute facial that cost $71.00!!!!! Are you kidding me.... I would absolutely NOT recommend this place to anyone.

Unless you are looking for something like a trim, I wouldn't take the chance.
And if all you want is a trim, I am not sure the price justifies the service.

I decided to give this salon a try after seeing a lot of advertisements and went to the uptown location since I was going to be there for a weekend-long work related event. I should have gone to another location closer to my home in South Park, so maybe this would not have happened and that way I would not have to drive uptown twice. But unfortunately I did not...Even the highest level stylist could not create anything but the same mass-produced technique resulting in a horrible, unprofessional brassy color. Don't bother bringing a picture, as clear-cut as we would think it would be, surprisingly it wont help. And if you book with a higher level stylist, beware of the fact that you will actually more than likely be dealt with a lot of assistants and other stylists through the process, especially if it's a color job, although you wont see that balanced out in the price you pay. Also, come prepared to have to listen to groups of young girls that prefer to talk behind each other's backs regardless of who is present. And after that gets old or the drama factor needs a refreshment, undoubtably the talk turns to dealings with other clients. I actually heard that going on too.

Anyway, maybe it is the product itself, or the fact the stylists have the assistants mix the color, or maybe it is just some people's hair doesn't color right with Aveda... At this point I would rather believe that than believe that people actually trained in this, proclaiming their experience and charging what they do, cannot get it even halfway right. And to make the customer feel awful for not getting what was expect is just a chance I would never again take, especially given the nature of the business.

So after spending hundreds, wasting my time and jeprodizing my hair I can't say this salon has any quality or integrity to it.

My wife and I had been going to another Aveda salon for several years and after getting several bad colors and cuts done we made appts. at Modern Salon and Spa in Ballantyne with Lesley. What an absolutely wonderful experience for us, the staff, the facility itself and the services are all top notch. Lesley, and her assistant Lauren, are simply the absolute best...for both men and women, and now my two girls (ages 6 and 4) are going to see them for cuts and trims. Modern Salon is simply the premier salon and spa in Charlotte :-) Don't be put off by other Aveda salons..it takes more than a sign on the building to be a true Aveda salon.

I just moved to charlotte and was very nervous about finding a new stylist. Modern was recommed to me by several people. I made an appiontment with a senior stylist. From the moment I got there begining to end I was treated like a Princess. I have never seen a place more Beautiful. From the cute little cafe area (with internet access computers and drink bar) to the well dressed smiling staff. They were all extremely friendly and made sure I was comfortable at all times. My haircut and color was PERFECT!!! She listened to everything I said. She educated me on my hair, told me things (quick easy things) that I had never heard before that have completly changed my hair. If you want your hair to look good even when YOU do it. Then Modern's your place!!!

Thanks to the team at Modern Salon and Spa; I have visited several of the locations for several different services and just love it every time.

I recently moved from the Southpark area to downtown and am enjoying the mani/pedi's, blow-outs and color services at the Hearst location. (I love Aveda haircolor -it seems to be the only color that doesn't break off my ends. I usually have light blonde highlights and wear my hair past my shoulders).

Looking forward to my next appointment, will have to check out the Spa!

I was referred to Modern Salon by my wife. I thought it was only a salon for women, but I was suprised how many men I saw in there as well getting haircuts. I had the best haircut and such a relaxing head massage. I will definetly return next time.

Pros: quick service, head massage

All I can say is I went in for your basic blonde retouch and ended up with ashy ends and peachy roots. After the six hour ordeal, I was told they could not fix it. So I had to go elsewhere and spend $200 to look semi-normal and get 4" cut off. Go anywhere but here. They are full of themselves for no reason. Snobby and untalented. Thanks for not charging me for the mess.

I went there for just a trim. Seemed like the hair dresser did not understand the meaning of 1/2 inch. She chopped off more than an inch.... and the attitude was disgusting...as if nothing went wrong. Avoid Kellie Martel - the worst hairdresser that I have had in years. Completely inexperienced and cannot for sure understand what 1/2 inch means. Its time Modern Salon got some experienced hair dressers!!!!!

I had gone and left Modern Salon years ago. After about 7 years, I went back to Modern Salon. I was really nervous since I had the same hairstylist for 7 years, but I needed a change. I was SO impressed! I have had countless compliments on my hair on the two hairstylists I've had. I've recommended Modern Salon to many woman and I am recommending it on this site!

I had the worst haircut of my life given to me at Mordern Salon. The staff was nice but when I came out looking like a cocker spaniel they put on a poor performance of trying to convience me it looked good. I also wanted lowlights and came out with platnium blond hair. It was the worst hair experiance I have ever had. I was pressured extremely hard to by products as well, when I repeatedly told them I didn't need any. I wouldn't recommend this salon to anyone.

I was at Modern for several services. My pedicure was fabulous!! It was long-lasting, neat, and my feet never looked better!! However my manicure, done by another woman, left a lot to be desired. I had white tips, which where crooked and uneven, and she left nail polish on my fingertips and around my cuticles. Also, my cuticles looked ragged and messy from where she nipped them. My haircut was a good one (technically) and my stylist could explain why she made the cuts she did, but it wasn't what I asked for. (I've learned from my other stylist how to explain my cut properly, using beauty school terms.) I won't be back for another cut, that's for sure. I recommend massages and body treatments, maybe a manicure/pedicure, or a makeup lesson. If you're set in your style and not open to "interpretation" I don't recommend a haircut.

I visited this location for a cut and highlights.

I've had two bad cuts there recently but chalked it up to me being unclear on what I wanted. With this stylist we went over pictures & talked extensively. I was crystal clear: I do NOT want hair in my eyes, the shortest layer must be long enough to go behind my ear. $125 later I have the same, exact crappy haircut and hair in my eyes! The color person was conservative, which I wanted, but I can't tell ANY difference in my color and there are still greys.

Three strikes and you are out! I will never go there again.
