I am a one time client and stumbled upon the reviews and can see that Sybil Salon is exactly what I though. I had a very bad visit to this salon and the owner Sybil is probably 63 years old I would assume. My haircut experiencewas terrible. The girl that cut my hair wasn't very nice and I wanted to get out of that salon as soon as possible. The tension in the air in that salon was so thicck you could cut it with a knife. It looked as if the owner was jealous of the stylist maybe. I had my own hair person for over 15 years check it when I went back to Harrisburgh. I can see from the other reviews that the owner is obviously having people post things . No one would really care. I wish I had something nice to say. Sad place + sad experince = Sybil.

First let me say that I am not one to EVER look at reviews. I went on line this morning to purchase several gift certificates for Christmas gifts. My eyes just went down to the word "negative" in one of the reviews so I started to read the reviews. THESE NEGATIVE REVIEWS OF SYBIL SALON AND SPA ARE FAKE and that is the ONLY reason I am taking the time to write this when I have a thousand things to do today. I have been a client FOREVER and the reason I have been going FOREVER is because Sybil Salon and Spa is WONDERFUL. I am not one to brag but after Sybil cuts and steaks my hair I receive compliments and more compliments. I live far from Shadyside, my mother is sick, and I work in Washington DC - it is not convenient for me - but I would never go anywhere other than Sybil.
The Staff is WONDERFUL - very accomadating. Each year Santa fills my stocking with Sybil gift certicates and I always give gift certicates to friends because they LOVE all of the services. These negative reviews are a real shame because they are NOT TRUE. The parking is not a problem at all. I usually park on the street but when I use the parking lot they are always very kind and accomadating. The dogs are adorable and don't bother anyone. SHAME ON YOU if you choose to believe these negative reviews. I think someone is very envious of this premier Salon we have in Pittsburgh. Do you really think clients (and there are MANY like me) would continue to go to Sybil Salon for years and years and years if they were not happy?????
Sybil is a very talented woman who knows how to run a very successful business. IT IS A SHAME THAT THIS SITE ALLOWS JEALOUS PEOPLE TO TRY TO DESTROY SUCCESS. And for the record, I just purchased $500 worth of gift certificates and believe me when I say that I am just one of many who do the same. Does that sound like a client who was not satisfied????

I took a chance on this salon when I move here in August. Although there were alot of negative reviews, Amanda the waxing technician got great reviews. So I made an appointment hoping for the best and..... she lived up to the hype! Seriously the most painless down there waxing ever! She uses two different waxes and oil, not baby powder people, so the wax and hair just glide off! They have a frequent waxer program and I am almost to my 10th which will be free! I just made an appointment for a massage, so we shall see how that turns out!

Pros: nice decor, super clean

Cons: an actual parking lot would be nice

well someone should tell woman (owner) over 40 should STOP trying to look like I DREAM OF JEANIE (DATED MY DEAR) and too many personalities for clients.

I have been to many upscale salons in the area after moving here a few years ago. It is obvious that the stylists here have had really good training. Lisa fixed a really bad cut. She made my hair look beautiful. My hair color didn't turn out quite as expected because it had been processed so many times (elsewhere) so it pulled a lot of red which didn't look good on me. But the coloring job itself was good.
Amanda gives the best brow wax in the city. She could be doing brows for the movie stars.
I just heard Lisa is moving, but I have seen the other stylists' work, so I will see Steph next.

this salon was completely disappointing--in every way possible. The stylist was unfocused and pulled at my hair. May hair actually looks worse coming out than it did going in. I paid over $100 for something I could have gotten for $30 at supercuts..DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE...the customer service was also horrible. When I called to cancel one of my services the receptionist kept me on hold for 10 minutes in the middle of a busy work day until I hung up. I am really upset about how much this salon cost for really giving me nothing in return except for a really bad day and a lot less money in my pocket.

Fake postings Re: Salon 5844, now this salon
By jennifer b.
I am a client and am sick of these hair salons being so silly. I am so tired of seeing these fake "positive" reviews. Read this from another salon. This is what is going on here at this salon:

Salon 5844 is Posting FRAUDULENT Reviews!!! 12/03/2008 Posted by honestreviewer01

There is an obvious pattern in these reviews. The negative review on 11/9/08 was followed by three 5 star reviews on 11/11, 11/12, and 11/14. There were actually no reviews since 7/10 which makes it extremely coincidental that three positives would get posted two days after the negative. I highly doubt that customers, like the one on 11/12, will ask people to book appointments too. The truth is, the employees or owners post these reviews to keep the ratings high. The negative review on 11/9 is not the only complaint with this salon...scroll down and see the others but they are skewing the data and pushing the negatives off the main page. Per the terms and conditions of Citysearch, postings by employees/owners is unnacceptable and can be removed since it decieves the customer. User Review Guidelines UNNACCEPTABLE CONTENT: 3. Reviews submitted by the reviewed business's employees (past or present) or competitors as determined by Citysearch. An owner, like Larry, that hangs up on any customer is just plain nasty. You can either take my advice and pay equivalent or less at Capristo (next door) or Jacques Dessange (Shadyside) to get the best in Pittsburgh or flush your money at 5844 to get the same old you can get for less anywhere else in Pittsburgh (Great Clips, Super Cuts, etc.).

I have been a patron of Sybil's Salon for about 2 years and I really like it. I have tried other salons but this one is the best for facials, waxing and mani/pedi's. JESS IS THE BEST! Looooooove the way she does my eyebrows and she is so friendly and easy to talk to. She also does the best nails and polish job I have ever experienced. I have given up painting my own, she has spoiled me! And I really like the Skinceuticals product line, great moisturizer. Even the gift certificates are printed out and personalized, which is a nice touch!

Pros: Products and Jess

Cons: the dogs are cute, but need a haircut

.

I am not a rich girl, but will gladly pay for great hair, Sybil Salon, Stephanie- specifically is worth the price. You dont have to be nervous when in her chair. She is sweet, talented, and fast.
As far as waxing, Amanda, is a bikini waxer extradonaire!
I did however have a bad experience with the other waxer for bikini waxing, but she is great for eyebrows. But just a tip if you are going for a bikini wax, even a first time Brazilian-- Amanda is an expert!
And while some people may not be dog people, or have allergies, the dogs there are not bothersome. And I have been to many salons, and this is a common occurence by owners, so you have to get over it.

I've gone to several salons in Pittsburgh for waxing and had HORRIBLE! experiences until I found Sybil Salon. No burning, incredibly fast, thorough, etc. I have never had any problems with customer service and really love the atmosphere of the salon. I would recommend it to anyone!

Pros: atmosphere, quality service, great prices, always very clean and cute, never had to wait

Cons: I moved far away!

I am a friend of the client who wrote one of these reviews and am "baffled" at the owner responding mercifully at the reviews they are receiving. I have checked other salon here in Pittsburgh on City Search and no other owner is commenting. Obviously this salon does not know what they are doing. I think the owner is the problem. I was going to go but after my frien went and showed me this site, I am totally shocked! I am also shocked that citysearch would allow this kind of bs. The owner needs to stop hovering over the internet and city search. I have read other reviews from other salons and no one is responding from the business,

i tried calling the salon twice and nobody ever answered, then i finally gave in and tried to set up a pedicure via their website. i even specifically wrote "please call to confirm appointment" because i was nervous something could go wrong. well i signed up via my junk mail account and received an email titled "appointment request information" which i did not bother to open because i assumed if there was an issue, i would have been contacted via telephone. well i was wrong, i arrived there only to find out that the people they have listed on the website as pedicurists are actually hair stylists (you think maybe that would be worth fixing???) and their actual pedicurists had absolutely no other openings today. i would have been only mildly annoyed if 1) i hadn't been leaving for vacation tomorrow and 2) had the receptionist been even the slightest bit apologetic. when i mentioned that i had specifically requested to be contacted she said they would have contacted me but i only said "please call to confirm," and what i was now requesting was to be contacted that my appointment was not accepted, and those were two different things (silly me). i read all the negative reviews but gave the owner the benefit of the doubt, and now i'm sorry i did. i am not a disgruntled ex-employee, i am a grad student and i will definitely be emailing my classmates to warn them about the severely lacking customer service at this salon.... i obviously cannot comment on the actual services rendered since the ambiguity in my appointment request disqualified me from being served.

I've been to Sybil a few times for various services. First the good news, most of my experiences there have been ok. The salon is well located with a cute atmosphere. I have had a haircut, manicure, and brow wax and the work was of good quality. Now for the bad news, the salon could use a customer service overhaul. My last experience at Sybil was terrible and I don't think I'll be going back. I was treating myself to what I thought would be a relaxing manicure after a hard week of work. I arrived and was not greeted by the receptionist. When I tried to check in, they seemed unsure of my manicure appointment and did not seem to have anyone available for me. As I waited for 20 minutes, two small, mop-like dogs barked at every person that passed by the window. I am not a dog person and found this to be very stressful. They sent me upstairs to the manicurist who was with other clients and I had to just stand there in the doorway waiting for at least 15 minutes. Finally, it was my turn and the other clients stayed in the room talking loudly on cell phones. I think it's pretty basic for spas to have a "no cell phone" rule and I am surprised that Sybil has not considered it. Finally, when I finished my manicure (2 hours after my original appointment time), I came downstairs to find the lights mostly turned off and the staff cleaning up. They "forgot that I was up there". I felt really rushed and unwelcome. In short, I have never had a problem with the actual work, but the salon and spa could improve their customer service to give clients the relaxing experience that they are seeking.

I go to college in Pittsburg and saw an ad for this salon. I can't believe the experience I had. I have traveled alot and have never been treated so badly and had such awful highlights that broke off my hair. I was going to go back and get my money back but after talking to other students on campus and a friend of my moms, I see that I am one of many dissatisfied customers of this salon. I cannot believe all the bad reviews, I should have done my homework before I went there. I was also told to go online and post comments by my stylist, as other reviews state here on this site. I have never heard of that before, especially after the bad treatment and very bad highlight job. The owner should be in trouble. Maybe I will go to the board of cosmetology and report this. I have never cried so much in my life as I sat in my car outside. And now my once beautiful hair is a mess. I was told by another salon on the phone that they must be using very high volume peroxide for it to break my hair so badly.

First, no, this is not Sybil writing. Nor am I a client. I happen to know the people who work in this salon. I've heard about these negative reviews of the salon and had to read them for myself. It's very clear that the person posting does not like Sybil, and obviously enjoys venting anonymously on the internet. Everyone at Sybil's Salon knows who the anonymous venomous poster is. In fact, anyone with half a brain could read these negative reviews and figure it out....two former disgruntled employee's who were fired because their work was sub-standard and because this "couple" caused nothing but havoc and turmoil whenever they were present. They were poisonous in the salon, and now they are furious that someone stood up to them and told them where the door was. So please, anyone reading all of these ridiculous reviews from so-called "students", read all the reviews, and make up your own mind.

I've read many of the reviews of Sybil on this site; some are good, some are bad, and yes, some even seem fake. Why add another one? Well, I'm a current client at Sybil, and I just wanted to put my two-cents into the mix to help out others who, like me, came to this website in need of assistance. I needed a new salon over a year ago, and found Sybil through Citysearch. The reviews seemed mainly positive, so I thought I'd give it a try. I could not be happier with my decision. My stylist, Stephanie, is wonderful. She has a vibrant and spunky personality, and has always been nothing but nice to me. More importantly, I love the way she cuts my hair. She is 100% aware of what is considered to be "in style". I'm pretty easy to please, and regularly allow Stephanie to do what she feels like on my hair, but not without thoroughly discussing it with her because she never wants to do anything the customer might dislike. I've had it all: long layers, a forehead full of bangs, a short bob. It's refreshing for me to go somewhere where I feel completely comfortable in the hands of my stylist, which is a first for me. I'm not writing this review to discredit any of the previously written posts. I'm writing this review because like the next person who will read this, I came to this website to point me in the right direction. I just want that "next" person to know that I love this salon. I've never had a bad experience here, and I actually look forward to going for my appointments. Don't let a few negative reviews influence your decision. And for those people who say the staff is rude and unapproachable - the staff has always been courteous, pleasant and professional to me. Has the thought ever crossed your mind that the reason they're supposedly rude is because of the way they were treated by you?

Cons: Cost and Parking

I was a client of this salon but not anymore. My hair was ok the first time, not great, but I went back for a second time. The seconfd time was terrible. I had to wait for the owner and the stylist to come to the salon almost for what seemed like an hour. They weren't eeven busy! I was tired of the stylist I was going to telling me to post comments on this site and other and even wrote it down for me what to write. I wanted my haircut not all this aggrevation. I finally made onto this site out of curiosity and I am seeing all these wonderfully wriiten fake "good" comments. I agree with the ones that say the truth of how the owner and the stylists are writting alot of these. In response to the previous review "This site is a bad way to judge a place" all I have to say is "is this a joke?". If this site is a bad way to judge, then why ask clients to post and the owner posting theiir own ridiculous comments. I wanted my hair done, not to be pressured by a salon.

Im letting you know that anyone can write reveiws on this site. I went to Sybil last week, and I was very happy when I left, but I didnt think I was completely blown away into a heavenly experience, and I didnt have a terrible experience. I received the hair cut and color I desired, and am very happy with it. I got on this site and was amazed at the dramatic reveiws, both posisitve and negatiive. I mean seriously, it is a stupid website with no serious reveiwing system. I bet these salons get on here all the time and post junk about eachother and themselves tocompete for the retarded saps that put all of their confidence in a place just because of what they read. HAIR GROWS BACK!!!!, so if you want to take a chance on a new place, why not? I had a pleasant time at Sybil and will go back. I would NEVER take what these sites have to say seriously.

Pros: Friendly staff, smooth experience

Cons: Ths website

First let me say that all experiences are individual. With that being said, this is where I'll be going to get my hair done for years to come. I just moved to the area and am getting married in a few months. I wanted longer hair for my wedding and started researching extensions. I found Sybil Salon online. I went in for my consultation with Stephanie, and she wanted me to wait until my hair grew out a little more. (I had a chin-length bob). I know from doing pageants and seeing tons of hair extensions that they don't look that great on shorter hair (think Britney's weave). I'm glad I listened to Stephanie and waited to get them done. My hair looks great, and no one can tell I have them in. I?m very satisfied with my experience there. I?m not satisfied with very many salons. I actually like the salon so well that I?m having my mom drive 4 hours to get Stephanie to work on her hair. (Hopefully we can get my poor mom out of the early 90?s).

Pros: beautiful hair

Cons: expensive.....so worth it

I should have believed the person who wrote the review stating that Sybil must place their own great reviews. I recently had great length hair extension's at Sybil that where applied horribly from a rude stylist with questionable experience. They are placed over an inch to 2 inches from my head. Great Length hair extension's are to be applied approximately 2 centimeters away from the head. According to the stylist that applied my extension's, they should be an half an inch from the head. I had a professional stylist from the Aveda Salon in South Carolina look at my extension's and she was shocked that the extensions where only 3 weeks old stating they are twisted, way to far from my head and already coming apart.. I called the stylist at sybil and she said that the extension's must have slid down and that there was no way they where that far down. The stylist was unbelievably rude when I came to Sybil to discuss the extension's. She offered to take a couple of them out and put in some new. I told her that would not fix the problem. I would have a couple good extension's and the rest grown out and twisted after only 30 days from when they where originally put in. She actually said this statement to me "You have to realize that you had cancer and your hair was in pretty bad condition in the first place." I can not imagine how my cancer had anything to do with her inability to put in hair extensions correctly. She was raising her voice and getting an attitude with me, embarrassing me around others in the salon. Sybil refunded me for the work on the extensions only not the cost of the hair, which was $500.00. It is just over a month and all the extensions need replaced, which I will have to buy the hair to replace them. These extensions are to last up to 6 months. If they where a reputable salon they would have ordered me new hair and replaced all of the extensions but obviously they are not.

They say when you receive bad service that you will share that information with approximately 5 people, however when you receive superior service you may share your experience with only one person. I want to share my experience with you. Two weeks ago, I arrived at Sybil?s with two new clients. When I went to the desk to say that we were here, Jennifer quietly let me know that the appointments weren?t on the book (probably my fault) but that she would give Stephanie a call and see if she could come into the salon. Sure enough Steph arrived at the salon within the hour, her two new clients got their hair cut and she now has two new very satisfied customers. I have to admit that I wasn?t surprised by the service that we received at Sybil?s. Jennifer handled the situation in a very professional manner and what can I say about Steph, she dropped what she was doing and immediately came to the salon.
If you want an amazing hair stylist who continually goes ?above and beyond? to accommodate her customers, I would highly recommend Stephanie. Her precision cuts, color/highlight skills are impeccable. What sets her above the competition is her willingness to please her customers, her pursuit to continue to build on already superior skill sets required to be a top stylist and her exuberant personality. Let?s face it, we all want the very best, and Steph delivers the very best. If you want a great cut by a true professional, ask for Stephanie.

Pros: Customer Oriented

I am a client of Sybil salon and it looks like Sybil is posting fake super positive comments again. Sybil also took down a "true" review. Keep making up those positibve reviews Sybil. All I can say is beware. Remember Sally Field in Sybil, well you figure it out. This is my opinion of course. But I guess the truth is hard to hear. I guess city search is for fake comments.

I recently moved back to 80's land..ie..pittsburgh..lets just say this is not the most cosmopolitian city on the planet,,in fact it ranks just above the primoridal ooze that founded the mantel of this earth we live on. I was at a loss for a competent hair stylist that had more experience than just cutting her barbies hair as a child and decided that fashion was her calling. On the advice of a good friend I was introduced to Stephanie who was relativley new to Sybil Salon. She was kind, extremely professional, and very attentive to every aspect of my hair cutting demands. She is nothing short of perfection and has mastered her craft as only a seasoned professional could.
The ambience of this Day Spa is so relaxing and very upscale. Sybil is the heart of Ellsworth Ave and I shutter to think what would happen if she decided to relocate. If you want to feel like a rock star, and recieve the treatment of the Queen of the British Empire then take a trip to shadyside and ask for Stephanie.
I am a Health Care professional and I must look my best at all times, the staff at Sybil are experts at what they do and the price is more than reasonable. For those of you out their that want more than a 6 dollar hair cut from bo-ricks, look no further.
My reccomendation is only a precurser to how truley amazing the staff is at this wonderful establishment. To truely enjoy this experience pick up the phone and make an appointment. Let go of the mullets and the blond streaks with bangs. Its 2008 people, Bon Jovi cut his hair, all you yinzers should follow your idol and do the same.

Pros: Wonderful salon with friendly attentive staff. Free shrimp and wine at Christmas!!

Cons: NONE

I moved to Pittsburgh about a year ago and was very nervous about finding a hair stylist that would live up to my expectations. I consulted citysearch to find a salon and was instantly drawn to Sybil because of the proximity to where I live. I choose to listen to the positive comments and ignore some of the seemingly brash criticisms - my intuition was right on! My first appointment with Stephanie was amazing and I have gone back to her SEVERAL times since. She never ceases to impress me with her highlighting and cutting capabilities. She always listens to my preferences (have you ever gone to a hair stylist that cut off WAY more than you asked for...Stephanie won't!) and blends the color perfectly (and believe me, I let my highlights go a little longer than they should). If you are looking for reasonably priced cut/color and an atmosphere filled with people that truly enjoy what they are doing - you do not want to overlook Sybil. While she has never cut my hair I have seen her work many times and Lisa does a great job too - you can't lose!

I have been going to Sybil for a year now and have had nothing but great experiences! I get my hair cut and colored, eyebrows waxed, facials and massage. I go to Stephanie for cut and color every month and she is AWESOME! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! In fact, my mom, my aunt, my 2 friends and their moms all get their hair done by Stephanie. I have also gone to Lisa once and she is great as well! The spa services are fabulous too! Since my first facial with Amanda, I have not broken out once! Everyone that I have been to there is very friendly and professional. If you are looking for a new salon, definitely check out Sybil!

Hello! I visited the salon last week and had my hair cut and eyebrows waxed. I think it's best to review the services separately.

First, my eyebrow wax was FABULOUS. I have very difficult eyebrows, and this was one of (if not) the best waxes of my life!!! Amanda is amazing. She really listens and tries to make you happy while complimenting your face. I highly suggest visiting for the waxing service. I did not do any other wax, but I will in the near future.

Next, my haircut...well...I won't tell you the name of my stylist, but I never felt so insignificant in my life. While we were talking about my hair and how much to cut etc., she had visitors and other people interrupt us. I felt like I was intruding on her personal time with friends. During the cut, I tried to strike up a conversation, but she was more interested in speaking with other stylists and customers. The cut itself is pretty BAD. I was happy that she didn't harass me to cut more, but she refused to cut my bangs the way I like. I understand it may not look super chic to have shorter bangs with long hair, but I like to cover my forehead a little bit. Also, I don't cut my hair as often as I should...in a month or so, my bangs will be long enough. I was very unhappy with my haircut. If you go, be sure to work with a stylist who is willing to do what you want.

Finally, the parking situation...the guy who owns/runs the lot across the street is the most RUDE man I've ever dealt with in Pittsburgh. I will never park my car ANYWHERE in his vicinity. On a prior occasion, he stole money out of my car. I tend to leave a few bucks in my ash tray because I forget cash for parking or tolls. Although the amount was small...I'll never allow him to "valet" my car. When I pulled in, I asked if I could take my keys with me, and he told me to get out and that I can't park my **** car. I could understand if he said...valet parking is policy, but he was completely rude. Park on the street

I moved back to the area a few months ago from Seattle. I had a LOT of trouble finding someone in Pittsburgh who was good at eyebrow waxing/shaping. Then I found Amanda (based on reviews) at Sybil, and she did a FANTASTIC job shaping my eyebrows. Also, the salon is very clean and nicely decorated. I definitely recommend Amanda for waxing!

I read about Amanda here on Citysearch, went for a brow appointment and I'm so glad I did! Amanda is great and she does a fabulous job with my eyebrows. She shapes them so they frame my face beuatifully, she is very gentile with my sensitive skin, and it is so very relaxing in her salon. I've been to quite a few esthetician for brow shaping who were rated very highly here on Citysearch. Out of all of them, I have to say that Amanda is the best, hands down. You'll get great brows and great service. I highly recommend her!

I was on business in Pittsburgh and having a bad hair day. I chose Sybil despite the negative review because the salon was nearby and they were able to schedule me on short notice. It was a wonderful experience. Stephanie gave me a perfect cut. The receptionist was lovely. The salon was clean and the environment calm. The cost was very fair and a good value. I will definitely return to Sybil again.

Pros: Skill, service, nice environment

Cons: Others mentioned parking, but there is a lot $3 per hour directly across the street

Never again! After reading the reviews about this salon, I was expecting a fabulous haircut and a great experience. I thought the salon was nice, but that's it. Parking was horrible and the prices are too high for just and average cut. I could have went to any salon for the same thing and saved alot of money!!!!!

I booked a Brazilian on the strength of these reviews and I am VERY happy. Obviously not everyone will be pleased but I think Amanda is brilliant-- better than anyone I've gone to in NYC, Boston or Chicago. She's also great with eyebrows. Only negative I can think of is that a few times, the waxing room has been extremely hot, which is kind of uncomfortable, but I'll put up with that any day if the rest of what's usually an unpleasant experience can be handled this efficiently and this well!

I highly recommend Sybil Salon. I have been going to Donna and Larry for my hair for YEARS and they always do a phenomenal job (Donna is great for cut, Larry is great for color). The second you walk into the salon, the ambience will just relax you. It's not the typical loud, chatty salon with women gossiping and chattering loudly. The lighting and setup of this place is absolutely wonderful. They also sell GloSpa products which are my absolute FAVORITE. I highly recommend the Green Tea and Jasmine body butter - it hydrates your skin without being too sticky and has a fabulous scent..I can't get enough of it! Again, Sybil Salon is the place to go if you want a fantastic haircut for a reasonable price (under $50) and a great experience.

Cons: Parking, Tough to get an appointment with Donna!

I went to Sybil Salon and it was just awful. The customer service wasn't at all good, and the stylist were a cut below average, including the work I saw Sybil , the owner, doing. I wanted to get my money back but my friend said not to. Are all of this reviews real? Too good to be true. I heard from another salon that Sybil is a fraud. I am guessing that the Sybil staff is writing these reviews. Too too positive. Makes one wonder if they are trying too hard to get business. Let's hear some real reviews from people who weren't asked to write them.

After a friend convinced me to try it, I decided to get my first 'Brazilian' wax....I looked on CitySearch and saw some great reviews for Amanda at Sybil's, and decided to try it, although I was a bit apprehensive, because for all I know, those reviews could just be made up or something. ANYWAY........I just wanted to let everyone know that I had a GREAT experience (as great as waxing can be, anyway!), and everyone who has written about Amanda and Sybil's is absolutely right. She put me right at ease, and did it so quickly, and it really didn't hurt as much as I'm sure it could have! Everything was clean and efficient, I was seen right away and was in and out in under half an hour. I will definitely be booking again, and recommending this place to my friends!

I received a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure at Sybil Salon. The manicure was by far the best I have ever received and the atmosphere was so luxurious. The room my pedicure was done in could make a queen feel giddy. The decor was beautiful, with relaxing music and aromatherapy. The technician assisted me in picking a polish color that would complement my skin tone perfectly. The only negative thing I can say about the pedicure is that the technician did complain about having to work hard on my callouses, however, she was most certainly a perfectionist and left my feet super-smooth. There was a decent amount of sales pressure to buy their expensive foot tools. My manicure was also very good.

Let me just tell you! I have been going to the same salon for the past 4 years with no complaints. I was doing some business in Shady Side last week and I had an appointment at my regular salon. I was running late so I cancelled my appointment and decided just to go somewhere in the area. I walked into Sybil's to get a facial and I was introduced to a girl named Melissa. I will just put it to you like this, I am no longer going to my regular salon anymore. Just Melissa's personality alone made me feel more comforatble than I ever was at my regular salon. Her technique was incredible and it was the most relaxed I have been in ages. She made me aware of everything she was doing and let me know exactly what products she was using. This way I could purchase them at the salon if need be. Girls my skin has never looked more healthy!!!!!!! When you go to Sybil's just make sure you ask for Melissa and you will see exactly what I mean.

I had my hair cut just a couple of weeks before,and was happy with it, but I was bored and wanted something dfferent. I was walking by Sybil's salon and decided to stop in and see who was available. Lisa was available and I must say I was blown away. From the minute I started the consultation with her, to the haircut and the finish it was worth every penny.She took her time to explain what she was going to do with my hair, explained while she was cutting what she was doing and gave me plenty of styling tips to do my hair at home.All in all it was very nice and I loved my hair and I will be back! Go see her as you will enjoy every second of it!

Amanda is the BEST! I've read the review that says Amanda is the Wax Queen and I agree 100%!! She is very professional and friendly, if it's your first time, she will let you know what she is doing or doing next so you are aware of everything, Although I've been waxing with Amanda for a couple of years I never tried the Brazilian Bikini wax until the winter 2005. Her technique is outstanding! I won't lie to you, it will hurt a bit (yeah, women suffer!), but if you do this procedure with someone who doesn't know what they're doing it will hurt A LOT! And I've done it in Brazil by not so experienced professionals and I suffered! But with Amanda, the whole thing is so smooth that you might even forget what is happening... kind of! And on top of everything, the salon is very beautiful, so clean & organized!! Keep in mind that you do need to schedule your appt. in advance, being a Brazilian, I am always last minute, and sometimes I just can't get an appt.! Now that I am spreading the word of the best kept secret in Shadyside it might even get harder!!!

I am absolutley neurotic about my hair, and have been known to go to New York City simply for a haircut. When I realized that I needed a trim incredibly badly and couldn't get to NYC anytime soon, I made an appointment with Lisa, and could not be more thrilled with the results! She is incredibly sweet and funny, looked at my hair, listened to my ideas, and gave me a great cut that can be styled many different ways (incredible, because my hair is really short.). The atmosphere is great - totally comfortable, but also stylish and very chic. Everyone I interacted with was so nice, and I can't wait to go back for a trim and to see what Lisa does with my hair next (and that is something I have never, ever said before, even with my NYC stylists)!

Pros: Everything! Service, ambience, people, and the haircut being absolutley stunning!

Cons: I can't think of a single one.

I initially went to Sybil Salon In January 2007 to have my hair fixed after having two very disastrous cuts. Lisa was amazing! She did both a cut and highlights and turned what I thought was a horrendous look into something amazing. She is great at everything: cut, style, color, etc. Fabulous! I also go to Amanda for facials and my eye brows. I started the beginning of the year with literally no eye brows; and with her expertise, they now look amazing. (Trust her, the Rogaine works!) Excellent massages as well. Overall, the service is amazing, the products terrific, and the best salon in Pittsburgh.

I saw this place near where I do yoga, and decided to give it a shot because it looked pretty inside and the girl at the desk was friendly.
I moved from Chicago last year, and I've tried 3 or 4 other places around town and they were all either dirty or didn't know what they were doing (usually both!)
So I was super happy to find someone who was an expert AND ultra-hygenic! I will never trust anyone other than Amanda with my Brazilian and brows again. Period.
