Savannah is awesome...but the best part is her stylists are trained by her and she has very high standards. I am a believer! Do not believe ruthless2012 (as if her name doesn't give it away).

I expressed to Savannah, in as direct language as possible, NO RAZOR. I hate when stylists razor my hair. My hair is fine and I prefer a chunky, textured look that razoring can't achieve.

She was talking with another customer almost

If I could add five more stars, I would! Rocket Science has the atmosphere, the education, great vibe, and excellent customer service as being the best salon in New Orleans. I just moved here from San Francisco for the film industry, and

Savannah knows her sh#t. I moved from LA this summer and never had a better hair cut and color until I found Savannah. She knows what she's doing. My regrowth from blond highlights is amazing. No more ugly hairline. And her cuts are

Savanah is the best colorist! When I travel to places that think they know style and color they definately take notice and compliment ten fold.

I have been Savannah's client for 8 years, and I have had exceptional hair EVERY time I've walked out of her salon. After several bad stylists in the past, I was afraid to try anything new with my hair, until I met Savannah. After baby stepping into the world of hair styling, I have built up such a terrific relationship with Savannah that I just sit in her chair and give her full license to do whatever she wants. I love my hair every time. It's hip and unique and makes me feel like a million bucks! Complete strangers stop me on the street to ask where I get my hair done. If you want a great cut, or flawless color, or just to feel like a total rock star, I highly suggest getting your hair done here...

Pros: FLAWLESS HAIR!!!

Cons: I only have one head

.

I went in for highlights, but ended up with a bleach blond head, not even white blond, but slightly orange. I was horrified but couldn't manage to say anything about it. I called back a few days later, and the woman (Savannah?) that answered the phone was very hostile to me and treated me like I was trying to get something for free. I just wanted to tell them that I was unhappy and wanted to come back in for some color to be added. ( I was ready to pay for the next visit, but she didn't let me get that out.) Even if my hair was over lightened, it should not have been orange.

I am definitely never going back, due to rude and poor quality service. ( The girl who did my hair, Dara, was very sweet, but I don't think understood what I wanted, which may have been my fault. )

But, it is expected in costumer service, that when you are not happy with a service, you call back immediately and things can be fixed, not wait a three weeks then complain. Instead, the woman was very rude and almost accusatory.

So now I am paying a new salon again to fix my hair, then dye it again, which is a big hassle. Wish I would have found another place, a little more professional.

I was immediately amazed at how intelligent this woman was. She takes it to the next level,but not in an intense way- like in a soothing BFF way. But she's exciting too. And then all the sudden you have the best hair. And you're having a great day and she's making you laugh all the way down the stairs and out the door. And then you realized what just happened- a truly talented person just did your hair and this is the way it should be. Cheers to you Ms. Blue.

Cons: none

Came from New York City where there are plenty of hairdressers to pick from and hands down had the best highlights and bang trim at Rocket Science Salon. The price was great, Savannah was helpful and competent. Will wait till I am back in New Orleans to get my hair done again!

A friend I work with referred me to Dara over at Rocket Science after I fell in love with her own hair. The salon was on top of a cool frenchmen bar (no downside, I assure you) and dara's spot even had a neat window seat overlooking the street. I got highlights and a much needed cut, and I've never had such a nice enthusiastic person do my hair. It looks so perfect, like just what I imagined it! Anyone looking for an easy to talk to stylist that can color and cut should go see dara at rocket science!

Savannah has got the right attitude and creativity to make any customer look great.

I had the works done on my hair: color, highlights, cut, etc. Because I didn't ask ahead of time about the cost (dumb me) I was a bit surprised at my total. However, all my friends told me that it LOOKED like I spent alot of money on a good haircut and color. Now that's what I want to hear! The old adage rings true for me, "You usually get what you pay for"-especially in fashion! Compared to the other high end priced salons in the area (where my friends and family go), Savannah gives you your money's worth in style and customer service. I highly recommend her.

First time trying to find a salon in New Orleans and I stumbled upon this salon online. It was the best find I could have asked for! Agnes was fantastic and cut my hair exactly like I wanted it! I cut about 10 inches off my head, so this was no simple trim. It's not easy to trust someone new with a major cut like that, but Agnes and Savannah put me at great ease and definitely followed through! I recommend Rocket Science to anyone looking for a trim, a major change, or coloring. They were great!

Cons: Frenchmen St. can be hard to find parking on, but that 's hardly a reason not to go!

I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania most of the time. However, I never let anyone color my hair but Savannah! I am patiently holding out until Mardi Gras to get my hair done because I refuse to allow anyone else near my hair. I have had my hair colored in many major cities all over the world and Savannah Blue is hands down the very best colorist! I love her shop and the people that work there. A great place that I highly recommend - just be sure you leave me a few hours around Mardi Gras to get my hair done...

I have moved around a lot because of my job. The worst part about moving for me has always been finding a decent salon and getting good haircuts every time.

I went to a ritzy salon in the quarter and was satisfied, but not wowed. Someone on LiveJournal suggested I check out Savannah Blue's place- best idea ever!

The salon is perfectly located on Frenchmen street and is well decorated and comfortable- not stuff and pristegeous like a lot of other places here in town.

Agnes has skillfully tamed my cowlicks and bad dye jobs. I love going to the salon because its a fun atmosphere and I always leave looking great.

Don't waste your time anywhere- go to Rocket Science, ask for Agnes and leave happy!

My whole family goes to Dara at Rocket Science. I am not very talented when it comes to styling my own hair but she cuts my hair and shows me what to do so I can even do it myself. My mom also goes to Dara, and my mom is very hard to please. Very cool atmosphere, Everyone is super nice and you just feel welcomed.

Its hard for me to find a barber that can cut my hair the way I want it done. Some friends recommended I go see Savannah at this salon. I'm glad I followed their advice. The place is cool looking and the stylists are not snooty or pretentious. Savannah made sure she understood everything I wanted and did a great job. I am now a loyal customer and will never allow anyone else to touch my hair.

Rocket Science's owner, Savannah Blue, has been cutting and highlighting my hair for five years now. I've gone to Savannah at 4 different salons because I won't let anyone else touch my hair. First off, my hair has a tendency to turn orange or brassy when colored, but Savannah always mixes the perfect color to get it just the right shade of blonde. Also, Savannah's cuts are great. She always listens to what I want and delivers a perfect result. As another reviewer here remarked, it's true that her cuts are long lasting, even on my long hair.

In addition to Savannah's skills, Rocket Science is a great salon. The space is funky and cool, the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable and the conversation is always amusing. No "hair snobs" here. There's also plenty of street parking on or right off of Frenchmen.

I give Rocket Science my highest recommendation and suggest an appointment even if you don't live in the neighborhood. I live in Uptown, near the universities, and there are plenty of hair salons in my neighborhood. But an appointment at Rocket Science is well worth the trip.

I found this salon based on citysearch reviews, and decided to give it a shot. The online appointment system was easy and very fast to get setup on, and lets you select a time and stylist; even tells you how long to expect the service to take.
I came in with an idea and some pictures, and left with exactly what I wanted. Savannah took plenty of time to discuss what I wanted, including how I styled it usually and my expectations as far as length/layers/bangs. The cut turned out great! I'm new in town and found the salon to be very friendly, bright and clean. Would recommend Rocket Science to anyone, and I'll be back!

I've been looking for a stylist in New Orleans for 3 years. After at least 10 very expensive salons AND bad haircuts I found Dara at Rocket Science. The cut was perfect, the style and blowdry ( I have VERY curly and hard to manage hair) were perfect, and everyone there is so friendly. It's upstairs and you have to ring a buzzer to be let in but it's in a great location. It's really cute, clean, and trendy. I love it and I'm never going anywhere else. Love it Love it Love it! Yay for good hair!

These girls rock! Finally a salon that does great hair and is fun to go to! i had just about had it with trying to get my hair done in New Orleans, especially downtown, which is where i live, when a friend recommended I track down Savannah Blue. After finding out that she had left her previous salon in the quarter I found out that she opened this new place. It is so cute and has so much character. And I love my hair. Exactly what I wanted. I feel like it really shows who I am without wearing me. It's easy to style and I've been told her cuts keep their shape for a long time. Don't waste your time or money going anywhere else. The stylists at Rocket science are all creative and fashionable and some one really listened to me about what I wanted for once.
