Just had a cut and partial highlights done here. I absolutely love it! A friend has recommended to go there and the fact that the salon uses Schwarzkopf ?hair color was a definite plus. It was quite a drive - coming from Chapel Hill, but

I wear a short bob type style & wanted it the same way but with the bulk cut out. Some areas needed to be kept a little longer such as on the sides where it could tuck nicely behind the ears.I asked that the ends be cut so it looked wisked & showed a picture. MY ENTIRE HEAD OF HAIRS WAS wisked into a 2" all over pixie sort of do! This style is cut on some people I suppose, it wasn't what I asked for.. The views from the side & back are unattractive as is the subtle highlights that I originally had which now looked...well, chopped. I loved reading all the reviews, but will think twice about paying much attention to any internet review in the future.

Being new to the area, I stumbled upon this place, so in dire need of hair service (cut and color) I decided to give them a call to see if I could get worked in. The receptionist was able to fit me in asap. I arrived a little late because I got a little lost, and as soon as I arrived, the staff was amazingly friendly and my hair dresser "Andrea" took me right back. She had great conversational skills and it felt like she had been my hair dresser forever. The owner is extremely bubbly and made me feel right at home. My initial call was for a cut, be she squeezed me in for color as well. I am one who is very particular with my hair and color and Andrea did a GREAT JOB!! I don't think I gave her enough credit. Thank you Andrea!!! Not to mention that on your first visit you get a discount of 20%. Tell me that not great!! I advise anyone to stop by and check it out!!!

I went to Studio 180 after reading reviews on Citysearch. I have been to several "top" salons in the past. I have to admit I was apprehensive about getting my hair done at a place that I was not too familiar with. I can honestly say this is the best color and cut that I have had in years. Andrea did a fantastic job with the color, cut and style. MANY people remarked at how beautiful it looked. I will definitely be coming back again.... SOON!!

I'm growing out my hair and I went to this salon based on the excellent reviews. Not sure if I will go back, because I asked to have my hair styled in a manner that I could reproduce and somehow I didn't get anything. I walked in with close to what was produced, so there was nothing offered on the styling front. I liked them and they were very nice, but I wanted some style to do for my hair and didn't get even a suggestion. It was a big let down for me.

This is the best color and cut I have had since I moved to the area. Service was on time, professional, and very skillful. Anna listened to what I wanted and consulted me about base color and highlights. She is friendly and personable. My hair looks awesome. Thanks so much, Anna. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Over Thanksgiving break when everyone is so busy or out of town, I desperately needed a hair appt. One of my co-workers goes to Studio 180 and highly recommended it. So, I tried it. I left a message and within 20 minutes received a return phone call. Fortunately, the stylist was able to work me in the same day! She did a fantastic job, understood exactly what I wanted to do with my hair and I felt relieved. Everyone was really personable and I got 20% off since it was my first visit. I would definitely go back.

I've been a faithful client of Studio 180 since its inception. My hair has been every length, color and style imaginable. I've had perms, foils, razor cuts... I've tried just about everything and the Studio 180 staff are the only stylists I've ever trusted enough to do it. No matter what color I changed to, my hair has never been damaged. The stylists at Studio 180 also give excellent advice on hair care and carry a stellar line of products that are definitely worth trying.

When I first came to Studio 180, they had to fix the work of a variety of stylists and colorists. No matter what you've done to your hair, they will know how to fix it... the healthy way.

I'm a local model and vocalist, so my appearance is very important. I've also been a highlighted blonde for several years and receive compliments daily on my cut and color. Studio 180 uses the highest quality color products available. They are also on the cutting edge of the latest techniques and processes because continuing education is a top priority. If you're considering having something new and different done to your hair, the staff will explain every option in detail for you. They want you to be completely comfortable when making a big change.

I don't go three days without someone asking "Who does your hair?" and "Can I get her number?"
In fact, my mother's best friend just asked me yesterday.

They say Cinderella's life was changed by one shoe.
I say a life can be changed with the right hairdo.

My initial reaction is that the place was great! I had a late appointment, so I was the only one there, but everyone was really friendly and made me feel welcome. Unfortunately, it all went down hill from there. I have long blond hair, and I went in to get a full foil done to brighten the blond and get a haircut. Normally, I would only go to a trusted stylist, but I just moved to the area and the reviews seemed pretty strong. First of all, putting the actual foils in took literally over 2 hours. I understand this takes a long time, but that amount of time is a little outrageous. To make things worse, when the foils came off, the color of my hair was not blond, but copper! I am talking like the color of a penny copper! The stylist seemed surprised that I hated it, too! So, she put me back in the chair and covered my head in some purple goop to make it "less bronze" and it still was hideous! Now about 9:45 at night, the stylist had to call in the salon manager to come in and fix the mess she created! Another layer of God knows what was put on my hair, and it still looked terrible. At that point, it was about 10:30 or 11:00 at night and I just pretended to like it so I could get the heck outa there! I went in for a color and cut, but there was no way I would let that stylist come near me with a pair of scissors after the disaster of a color treatment I got! It's been awhile since this happened and I STILL cannot get the ugly color out of my hair unless I chop it all off! To make things worse, I was still charged for everything. I felt obligated to pay for it becuase the poor stylist had to stay so late. She said she would keep a new color forumla in my file so it wouldn't happen next time. Next time? YEAH RIGHT! I will never... and I mean never go back to that place again.

I went to Studio 180 Salon yesterday and had THE BEST experience. I had my hair cut and thermally straightened by Francesca. She did an amazing job, I could not be happier. I went in with long, unruly curly hair and left with a fantastic chin length cut and sleek, shiny straight hair. I never thought my hair could look so good. The salon is really cute and all the stylists are so friendly. My service took a long time because of the straightening process and I felt like I was just hanging out with friends. I called a ton of salons in the area asking about the thermal process and found myself most comfortable with the response from Studio 180. I am so glad I decided to go there. I would & will recommend this salon to anyone. They really know thier stuff and are just nice people to be around. Great job! Thank you so much!

This was my first time at Studio 180 and I will definitely be returning. I have had the worst luck trying to find a good stylist that I get along with, trust and can afford, but my luck's finally changed. I was warmly greeted upon arriving, then met with Andrea to discuss my hair color and the look I was going for. She knew exactly what I wanted, and made me feel completely comfortable letting her color my hair. The results were fantastic! Also, the feel of a small privately owned salon made me feel more relaxed rather than the ones with 20+ stylists who don't really care they just want you in and out. I really can't say enough great things about this salon, I have definitely found a new home for my hair.

After living in Raleigh for eight years, I can now stop my salon searching. As a blonde (highlights), I'm extremely selective as to how my hair should look. Ana continuously does an outstanding job with my highlights, and I always leave the salon feeling 100% satisfied. Ana's creative, artistic abilities enable her to construct the color/cut that you desire. She has true stylist vision, which allows for me to relax during each appointment knowing that she delivers exactly what I want. Ana also offers suggestions and direction on the latest color trends and styles, and uses only high-quality, yet gentle, products on my hair. If I have an urgent need for an appointment, Ana does her best to work me in, which as a full-time working woman, I greatly appreciate. In addition to Ana's hair-styling capabilities, she is a kind, fun person who puts the needs and comfort of her clients first. As a pregnant woman, Ana has bent over backwards to ensure my comfort, and always provides me with a relaxing, stress-free experience. The friendly, skillful staff coupled with an artistic, pleasant ambiance makes Studio 180 Salon the best in the triangle!

I can't tell you how many times I say, "Anna at Studio 180 Salon in Cary," as people regularly ask me who does my hair. I also get asked if I'm a hair stylist, which means not only does my girl Anna do a FANTASTIC job, she always patiently shows me how to style it at home (and my blow-drying technique is rudimentary at best).

That last review about no bleaching experience was total BS. As evidence, I present: thatgirlfromshallotte.blogspot dot com. Anna's been doing my hair for 13 years now, and in those years, she's made my hair blonde, black, red, pink and blue while keeping it healthy. That's no small task, as my hair is fine and thin. She made me look my best at my wedding and for my professional headshot for my column in the N&O.

I've sent many people her way over the years, and they've all raved about the service. She's awesome, professionally and personally (so is Fran, who also styles there). They are, quite simply, the best.

Need more of a rec? I live in Five Points and work downtown. I absolutely HATE going outside the Beltline, much less to Cary, but if Studio 180 up and moved to Charlotte, I'd drive there in a heartbeat. It's more than worth it.

I went to this salon based on all the really good reviews. My experience wasn't good. I have natural dark brown hair, and my hair is currently blonde. I went to get my roots touched up. I was originally quoted $65 on the phone.. and was charged $150. She stated she only has 2 bleach clients which was enough to make me nervous, but at that point I already had bleach on my hair. The first bleach process did not lighten my hair enough, and she stated she had only used 20 Vol, which was in no way strong enough and I know that from prior experience, and that she would have to bleach it AGAIN. The 2nd time around my scalp was ON FIRE! I was almost in tears cuz it hurt so much. The 2nd bleach still did not lighten it enough and was there for FOUR HOURS.. and My hair is currently two different shades of color.. which is what I was trying to get rid of in the first place.

However a week has passed and my scalp is now peeling and I have sores on my head from the bleach. I have bleached my hair many times when I was younger and I've never had sores or peeling like I have now. Also, she had 2 other clients scheduled at the same time as me.. so I ended up waiting with bleach on my hair, for way longer than it should have been left on.. while she finished other clients.

MY RESPONSE BACK TO THE BUSINESS

I had called before coming in obviously to get an appt and explained what was wrong with my hair and what had happened at the previous salon I went to, that it was 3 different shades, and the quote I got by anna was $65, it is not my fault that you cant quote right. Also, you stated next time I came in you'd use stronger bleach since it didnt lighten enough the first time.. if you never use stronger than 20, why did you tell me you'd use stronger next time I came in? you might want to get your stories straight. Obviously this lady lies to try and make herself look good.

I am very sorry that you were not satisfied with your hair services at our salon- we try very hard to make sure that everyone leaves with a smile on their face! We use very high quality Schwazkopff color, and have generally had fewer problems with scalp sensitivity, but everyone is different. Sometimes, the client/stylist vision is not a match, and although we always try to provide a thorough consultation, this can occur. Fortunately, we seem to be able to meet the needs of most people that visit Studio180 Salon, and we are so happy to have a devoted local following. Please let us know if a refund is necessary, we will be happy to oblige.

I do not generally write reviews, partly because I know that bad reviews can affect someone's livelihood. But I selected this Salon based on the glowing Citysearch reviews, and I had a bad haircut and color at this salon, and I went back and asked for correction for the haircut and came out again looking bad. I went in with highlights that had gotten brassy, and while the haircut I had when I went in was not my all time favorite, as it had some layers that were out of control, it did not look nearly as bad as after the haircut I got here. The stylist cut my hair with the largest scissors I've ever seen in a salon - they looked like pruning sheers almost. Then, she evidently texturized my hair with smaller scissors, and I then had split ends in the layers around my face of my shoulder length hair. I've not had split ends since I was a teen and my hair was really long and was rarely cut and had too much Sun In. I do not know how she did such a bad job, but it looked really bad. Since I gave her a chance to redeem the cut, I feel justified in writing a negative review. In addition, my scalp itched and I had a good bit of hair loss after the color, so it may be that I was allergic to the color product used. While I was there, the stylists kept talking about what great service they provide, but I saw at least 3 other clients in and out, and honestly, none of them had fabulous looking hair. Perhaps I just went in on an off day, but I will not be going back. I'm sorry to give a bad review, but it was not worth the money in the least, and it was not cheap.

After that, I did not have anything done for almost 2 months, but I have now gone to a new Salon - the difference is like night and day.

I do not generally write reviews, partly because I know that bad reviews can affect someone's livelihood. But I selected this Salon based on the glowing Citysearch reviews, and I had a bad haircut and color at this salon, and I went back and asked for correction for the haircut and came out again looking bad. I went in with highlights that had gotten brassy, and while the haircut I had when I went in was not my all time favorite, as it had some layers that were out of control, it did not look nearly as bad as after the haircut I got here. The stylist cut my hair with the largest scissors I've ever seen in a salon - they looked like pruning sheers almost. Then, she evidently texturized my hair with smaller scissors, and I then had split ends in the layers around my face of my shoulder length hair. I've not had split ends since I was a teen and my hair was really long and was rarely cut and had too much Sun In. I do not know how she did such a bad job, but it looked really bad. Since I gave her a chance to redeem the cut, I feel justified in writing a negative review.

Pros: Lovely salon, nicely decorated, clean, parking good, easy to get to, nice owner/stylists.

Cons: Bad haircut, color OK but not interesting, scalp itched after service.

I moved to the triangle area from the West coast 11 years ago and spent 2-3 years trying to find a stylist that could compete with my previous salon on the West coast. Anna was the ONLY stylist that met my high expectations! When I first moved here, I called every single salon in the area and asked about "dimensional highlights". None of them knew what I was talking about, except for the salon that Anna was working in at the time. Flash forward 10 years later - most salons have started using the "dimensional' technique, but Anna was one of the first in the area doing so and she remains THE very best! Her eye for color amazes me! Anna consistently EXCEEDS my expectations, not only is she well trained but she is truly artistically gifted.

I found Studio 180 on citysearch last week, and after reading all the good reviews, I decided to give it a try. I moved from Boston 2 years ago and had been searching for a great hair stylist to give me the perfect color and style in the Triangle area. I will look no further! Anna did a FABULOUS job on my hair. She got the color perfect (which is not always easy with blonde highlights, I've found) and she cut my hair to perfection. She is extremely knowledgeable and pays attention to details; she really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend this salon! It has spirit, style, incredible talent... you must try!

Pros: 20% off 1st visit coupon, best hair cut & color, atmosphere

Cons: can't think of ANY! (that's when you know you've found a good salon!)

I have lived in Raleigh for over 15 years, and had yet to find a place to tackle my hair--Until now!! I have very thick, curly and frizzy hair! Fran spent over an hour with me--she was very patient as I tried to decribe what I wanted. She constantly reviewed the pictures I had brought in and talked me through everything she was doing. She is very detail oriented and went above and beyond my expectations! Thanks Fran
P.S. The owner, Anna is also very personable and friendly, and quick to set up appointments.

Let me tell y'all something: If the receptionist is a snotty, rude B-word like the lady I called at Mitchell's in crossroads just a few minutes ago, I wouldn't make an appointment there because they're all probably catty wenches, including the stylists. So, I'm desperately searching for a salon that can give me great highlights before my wedding. I came across Salon Kroma (they're # 1 on the best of section) but when I tried to sign up for their email coupons, their page wouldn't let me. If they don't update their website, they probably don't update their skills much either. I moved on. Finally found Studio 180, had great reviews here and the appointment setter was the SWEETEST woman over the phone! She offered to give me driving directions and spoke to me like she wanted to make me as happy as I could be. I can't wait to go in tomorrow- hopefully I can review the actual experience too! The initial phone call is so important to a new customer, I just had to share this experience. Thank you Studio 180 for making me feel so welcome!!

Anna cut my daughter's hair, a 7 year old with hair like Dianna Ross, and did a wonderful job. My daughter was so pleased with the experience she pleaded with me in the car to only bring her to this salon! What a compliment to Anna!

I moved here from VA and could not find a hairdresser who could do my color - believe me I tried - I contacted Anna because my wedding was coming up and I was so afraid of my color being wrong for my special day. I showed Anna photos of my hair before another salon messed it up and she got it right the first time! Don't let the fact that Anna & Fran's customers haven't written a review here recently stop you from coming to this Salon - it's a great and fun place to get your hair done - my husband even commented on how "lucky" I am to have a place that has great service and is relaxed and fun. I highly recommend this place!! p.s. - Anna also did my hair and my niece's hair for my wedding and we had SO many compliments on our hair - even from the men attending the wedding!!

My hair is completely gray (I grayed in my 20s) and I have naturally kinky/curly, coarse hair that I have been straightening with drugstore relaxers since I was 13. My hair always required a lot of styling with a styling dryer and straightening iron. When I heard about the new thermal straightening processes available now, I went looking for someone who offers the service in the Triangle area, and I found Francesca at Salon 180. She did both my hair and my teenage daughter's, and the results were amazing! My hair is straight, soft, shiny and healthier looking than it ever has been. And this summer, I've had NO FRIZZ - not even when I was at the beach! My styling time has gone from almost an hour to about 15 minutes, and my hair keeps the style until my next shampoo. I also had been unhappy with my hair color for a number of years. Anna reformulated my color, and it looks beautiful! I get so many compliments on my hair now. I highly recommend this salon!

Fran and Anna are fantastic. A great haircut and color and a lot of fun. They use the absolute best color product that conditions your hair and the color will not fade. A great cut too with attention to getting the right cut for your face. And it's very relaxing but happy and upbeat. A great experience.

Studio 180 has always been known for their service and excellent color. The new location on Academy Street in downtown Cary definitely added the touch! Theres a reason that this salon was picked as best kept secret in western Wake county and Im so happy that I discovered it!

This has been the first salon that I have gone back to since moving to the Triangle about a year and a half ago. They have reasonable prices, and I have been thrilled with my haircut whenever I have gone there - even AFTER washing it and styling it myself. I've finally found my salon and a hairdresser who knows me and my hair!

Studio 180 not only does great cuts, styles and color, their artists attend regular training to keep up with the latest trends. After a consultation, you'll emerge with your own new style. If you're looking to change your look or just boost your self-esteem, this is the place to go. Not only is the staff highly trained, they are also some of the nicest people around.
How many of those tired old "Raleigh Bobs" have you seen around town? Why be a lemming? You don't conform, so why should your hair?
