I have mixed feelings about Ambushed Salon. My hair looks fantastic, but my experiences have been less than stellar.

If you get an appointment first thing in the morning I guarantee you Amy will be late.

I found Amy through CitySearch looking for someone who specialized in curly hair. I have had so many bad haircuts in my day due to my fine, curly hair and tiny pea-head; I often end up with 'mushroom head'. Amy listened, studied, and decided that a recut of what I already had would help. I didn't know how cutting an already too short, poorly done haircut would make it better but with 45 minutes of studying and listening and only about 5 minutes of cutting, she changed my mushroom head into a doable look. She also encouraged me in the hair color department and soon I had a chic, stylish re-do with some amazing color.

I'm not sure I'll keep it short for long, only cutting it to let my natural hair color grow in, but I feel confident that Amy will be able to provide me with quality cuts and coloring despite my whims.

If you have curly hair, go see Amy. If you've had bad haircut after bad haircut, go see Amy. Fun, personable and awesome, I highly recommend her services.

I hadn't been to a stylist in years and had just been cutting my own hair and coloring from a box because every stylist seemed to cringe seeing my curls coming. When I DID get my hair done professionally I always just decided to leave with wet hair because the stylist didn't have a diffuser or would just offer to "blow and brush it out" which, anyone with curly hair knows, you can't just blow and brush it out unless you want a huge fro! LOL :)

Anyway, I went to Amy the day before Thanksgiving and she did an AMAZING job!!! The color is so rich...and even without highlights, my hair color is multi-faceted going from rich hues of brown to ruby reds in the sunlight depending on how the light hits it.

When Amy cut it she really looked at how my hair was beginning to curl after the shampoo and cut with the curl to provide different lengths that would lay without giving me a "triangle head"! :) She took her time even though it was the night before a holiday. She s extremely enjoyable to talk to and it was a very comfortable atmosphere.

When I left my hair looked and smelled amazing! The Euphora products she uses are great and I made sure to get some on my way out because it made my hair smell SOOO good. I could even smell it in my sleep!

My husband LOVED my hair and he gave me that movie moment "LOOK" that Andrew McCarthy gave Molly Ringwald in "Pretty in Pink"! He was constantly touching my soft curls and smelling my hair and he declared "You are never allowed to cut your own hair again!" and "When are you making your next appointment with Amy?"

Amy was magnificent and I will definitely be going back!

I had my hair cut by Amy on Friday, and I can't tell you how excited I am to have someone of this caliber in Columbus. As anyone with curly hair knows,it isn't easy to find someone who "gets it", and Amy is that person. I travel quite a bit for work, and on my endless quest for just the right cut for my curly hair, I have tried stylists from Beverly Hills, Chicago, DC,etc., even Quidad in NY, and I can honestly say this cut is better, without the hype of a NY salon or the price of Beverly Hills. Amy took the time to listen, to explain her approach, and to discuss styling options. I was quite impressed with her as well as her direction for her new salon. After my appointment I went shopping, and a woman stopped me to ask about my hair (I was excited and felt like Amy really made a difference!) Of course, I told her about Amy. Curly hair is a club you know, but we share our secrets.

I deliberately waited 3 weeks after getting my hair cut by Amy before posting a review. I wanted to see how the cut would fare after a few weeks growth. To say this cut passed with flying colors would be an understatement.

I simply haven't had a bad hair day since this cut. Not. One. Bad. Hair Day. Which is quite amazing to me since my curly hair has the mind of a ferret - running crazily from a frightful wig of frizz to other "looks" which usually ended up looking messy. (And not the hot "just-out-of-bed" messy the fashion magazines boast.)

Here's the scoop: before I went to Amy, I tried going to three different hairstylists this year, hoping they would give me a cut that was flattering and leveraged the curl. Nada. I often would gather my hair into a banana clip just to keep it out of my eyes. Amy told me she would give me a cut that offered options for styling. Boy, she wasn't kidding. I had a stylist from another big-name salon cut my hair and it looked great for the "curly" look, but sort of blah if I styled it straight.

The day after my cut, I washed my hair and did a blow-out, carefully watching how the hair fell after using a large round brush. It looked great! I almost couldn't believe it! I then used a curl activator product the next time I washed my hair and allowed it to dry naturally. Again, it looked great! Rock on, Amy!

I'm in my mid-forties and believe me, have had my share of good and bad stylists. Amy took the time to talk to me (and listen!) while determining what style would best flatter my features and lifestyle. She even added a little extra TLC by giving my hair a nourishing mask. I can't believe how much I love my hair right now! The cut is still just as versatile as it was three weeks ago. Amy's price is a bit more than a mid-level stylist at Kenneth's, but then again, you're getting someone who knows how to cut curly hair, inside and out. Amy, by the way, has a gorgeous mane of auburn curls, herself. She's a sweetheart and I'd highly recommend her to anyone who is exasperated with trying to find a decent stylist for curly hair. I believe you will be just as thrilled as I was to discover her. :-) Oh, and btw, I don't wear my banana clip as often.

My layers were growing out, my head felt heavy, and i couldnt manage my hair anymore so i tied my hair up everyday. I needed a hair cut real bad. The problem was I have a hard time finding a stylist because im so picky with my hair and the only person i trusted with my hair cut was someone down in Georgia. So i did some research online and came across Amy, She had such great reviews i had to give her a try. At first i wasnt sure whether its a good idea but after the cut, i couldnt be more pleased, happy and satisfied. She really did a great and awesome job. I love my hair ~!!!!!! and so does my bf... hes been complimenting the whole day... I would recommend Amy to all my friends and I would definitely come back to her again ~ because i think i just found myself the BEST Hair STYLIST !

P.S ~ Amy !! ~ thank you once again ~! I really love my hair !

Amy knows what she is doing! She understands that you just can't cut curly hair the same way you cut straight hair. She understands what so many of us with curly hair have gone through and she works hard to make you feel comfortable. She will listen to everything you have to say and she will take the time to explain what she is doing and why. Amy goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are taken care of and are happy. I'm amazed at how great my curls can look with so little effort on my part.

Today my daughter and I had our first haircuts with Amy. She really took the time to get to know us and listened to our concerns, likes and dislikes about our current hairstyles. She gave us both exactly what we were looking for and for the very first time we both left a salon feeling great and looking like ourselves only better. We are both looking forward to our next visits.

I'm 43 and picky about my hair. Amy is among my very favorite hairdressers (only two others of my lifetime live up to her!). She gets hair- how it curls, how it moves, how it frames each face, how it dries. She cares and wants me to be happy. She totally listens and happily looks at photos to understands your wants and then helps you translate how the look will work with your face and hair. I love her space and the privacy and the ease of scheduling.

Having your hair cut by Amy is a treat. My hair is wavy and only needs shampooing and combing if it is cut correctly. She listens to how you want your hair to look and proceeds accordingly . She is accomplished; she is professional; she is a delight! If you like a razor cut, Amy is the stylist for you. I have been looking for 5 years for someone who can cut curly/wavy hair. Today was my third hircut by Amy and I cannot recommend her highly enough .

After getting a few bad haircuts, I found Amy and I'm staying! Amy understands my hair, the way it pulls up when it dries, the way layers sit, how to make it fuller without it being one round poof or looking like the triangle-head from Dilbert. I don't describe very well what I want, but she always knows what I mean and always does it well. Besides getting my best haircuts from Amy, she is a very nice and creative person, so she's fun to be around. Once you try, you'll see what I mean!

Pros: Amy is starting a program to give your old products to those less fortunate, and, while she sells products, she doesn't push products

Cons: For a student budget, the price may be a little high, but i find it's worth it every time.

Amy is an amazing hair stylist. She does a phenomenal job with curly hair and knows how to deal with the craziness of my curls. I am always happy with my haircut and it looks great as it grows out as well. She also is a master of hair color and takes the time to help you figure out what hair color works best for you and your skin tone. She also does a great job with eyebrow waxing. If you need any of these services, Amy is the person to go to! You leave looking great and having had a great time chatting with Amy as well. I am most excited to be going back again!

I've been looking for someone that could give me a good cut and color and I found that talent in Amy. She is an artist taking into account her whole canvas. She's patient and listens and makes suggestions while considering my input as well. I have short wavy hair and she gave me a cut that feels like me. It's cute, fresh, hip and takes about 5 years off my age. I love the Italian herbal hair color line that she uses. It leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny. It's also important to me tthat my hair designer be someone that I enjoy spending time with since I go every three weeks. Amy is warm and nurturing and pleasant to chat with. Thanks Amy!

I moved to Boulder, Colorado in July, but I refuse to find a new hairstylist because I can't imagine trusting anyone as much as I trust Amy. She was my hairstylist for the 5 years I lived in Columbus. In my opinion, she is truly an artist. She looks at the whole picture of a person - their lifestyle, their dress, their facial features to create a look that naturally and atractively fits the individual. I am very particular about my hairstyle, but I always hate the forced look of a "haircut". Amy knows how to take a sculpted look from a magazine and turn it into something natural and (as far as I'm concerned) glamorous.

I survived the 80's (just barely) with big hair that wasn't TRYING to be big. So you can imagine how many bad haircuts I've had, and how many times I've left in tears because someone tried to blowdry my curls and I could see the horror on her face as my hair just got bigger and frizzier . . .

Then I met Amy. My hair "good twin" went first; I loved what Amy did for her hair, so I decided to take the plunge myself. After my first cut from Amy, I told her that I'd never smiled when leaving a hair salon before. Now I actually look forward to getting my hair cut, and I don't have to rush home and get in the shower to get all the disgusting product out of my hair.

She gives advice when asked on how to style my hair, what products to use, etc. And she's also ok when I think I know what I want - she'll style my hair, or not, depending on the day, my mood, etc. I love the cut and the color, and I think my hair is easier for me to style between visits as well. Amy is truly outstanding, and I can't recommend her enough!

My children like going to this salon for their haircuts because the people in here always so nice to them and they like the attention they get from the hair stylists and the lollipops help too.

My children like going to this salon for their haircuts because the people in here always so nice to them and they like the attention they get from the hair stylists and the lollipops help too.

This is by far the best haircut I have every gotten! I have 3c/4a type ringlets and coils that I usually spend up to 2 hours to perfectly style...and of course a head full of frizz. Not only did she talk WITH me about what I wanted to achieve she took the time to SHOW me what she was trying to do to make an overall look. I have several different ways in which I can style my hair in less than 30 mins. I recommend her to those with curly and straight hair. Perfect location and set-up. And if you want a massage, manicure, or waxing you can stay there and go to another loft.

I want to keep her to myself....but I would hate for more curlies to go around with bad cuts.

I followed Amy from Akada Salon to the Lofts. No one takes care of me like Amy. I don't ever feel pressured to have ideas about what I want done. She always has suggestions I trust and always makes me feel and look like a million bucks. I have had plenty of horrible experiences with people who say they know curly hair, even went for well over a year with out so much as a trim for fear of more damage being done to my hair. I have been with Amy for over 4 years and I will follow her anywhere! My sister feels the same, and comes into town from North Carolina planning her trips around when she needs her hair done. There is no substitute for Amy!

Pros: Location, nice to be able to park easier than Akada, and go have a beer next door afterwards.

Cons: None!

I am very particular about my hair in terms of the highlights/color I get and the cut. I am willing to pay ridiculous amounts of money if it means that I can get the results that I want. I have found someone who is EXTREMELY talented at both color and cutting. And the beauty is that her prices are reasonable. Amy does such a phenomenal job with the scissors and really takes time and listens to what you want. She also promises that if you do NOT like what she has done---you can come back at any time--no questions asked.

What I really loved what her technique at dry cutting. It is such a acquired skill to cut hair well. I have had some horrible cuts and the problem is that it takes a year or more for hair to grow back---so mistakes are not easily remedied!! With Amy there are no worries....she will keep it long if that's what you want. I have long hair and I am always having to convince the stylist that I want to KEEP my length! Amy gave me a phenomenal cut which took away the split ends, but left me with the long mane that I wanted.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE! And this is coming from someone who has searched long and hard in Columbus and elsewhere for the right stylist!

Wow, what an experience I had with Amy. I have curly hair that was badly damaged by boxed hair color. I knew better than to use that stuff, but got in a rut and didn't spend the time or money on myself. Well, that is all going to change now after meeting Amy. She is very precise and when she was done, I couldn't believe it was me that I was staring at in the mirror. The hair color and cut was amazing. Amy is a miracle worker and I can't wait to go back. Thanks, Amy.

Pros: Salon Loft on Fifth Avenue is easy to get to and Amy is outstanding

Cons: None

I have struggled with my curly hair for 26 years, never really finding a stylist who could do much more than give it long layers and hope for the best. After reading the reviews of Amy on here, I decided to try her out and, yesterday, I left her salon feeling like a new woman! I have never had a hair STYLE before. My hair has more bounce and shape than ever before. If you have curly hair and want to experience something life-altering, make an appointment to see Amy and I am sure you will not leave disappointed! I will recommend Amy to anyone and everyone!

Pros: awesome with curly hair

Cons: none!

I found Amy on the Columbus City Search engine last year and have never been happier with my curly hair cut and style. Amy is the only stylist I have ever found who knows how to cut and layer my thick and heavy hair in a way to bring all my curls out from hiding! I am amazed at her talent and tell her she is more than a hair stylist, she is an artist with her methods of hair styling and color! Anyone who has trouble managing their curly locks should give Amy a try. As the previous reviewer stated, she is totally amazing! I also must mention that the color she uses on my hair keeps it soft and natural looking. She also sells Eufora hair care products and they are by far the best I have ever used to maintain healthy and beautiful color treated hair!

Pros: Love her new location for atmosphere, convenience and parking

Cons: none

Amy is one of the most amazing hair stylists I've ever been to. At first, I was a bit skeptical about the idea of having my mother's hairstylist cut my hair, but I will never have anyone else cut my hair. I have long straight hair and I've never known what to do with it but Amy has great taste and style; she always has suggestions and new ideas where the end result is always perfect. She is brilliant at what she does and makes the experience overall more enjoyable. Also, I really liked that the location is very convenient, being so close to my school, OSU. Going to Amy for your hair needs is highly recommended. I'll never trust anyone else with my hair again :)

I am very picky about who cuts my curly hair and I was excited to go to Amy after reading all the reviews about her. She was wonderful. She explained her products and how she was going to cut my hair. She listened to what I like/don't like and gave me the perfect cut. It's exactly what I was looking for! She gave me great suggestions for styling. When she was finished, I seriously had never seen my hair so curly!! If you are looking for an awesome curly hair stylist, look no further!!

Pros: Loved the atmostphere of Salon Lofts. This was my first experience

I've been going to Amy for at least 5 years. Tired of the mammoth salons in town, I was fortunate to find Amy. She is talented and creative. She listens. She's seen me through long, short, and in between cuts. And I always adore the way she handles my color. I've never felt like I was in a rut - which is what usually happens after I've been going to someone for years. Sometimes I bring in an idea, other times I rely on Amy's creativity. I trust Amy's expert opinion.

I have been going to Amy for over ten years. When she left her former salon, I was panicked, but then I found her again at Salon Lofts. It is a great place- a good location with plenty of parking, and a very upbeat atmosphere. Amy knows just what will look right on each person, but still asks a lot of questions to make sure her vision is in line with yours. I totally trust her - if she says let's try a little different twist, it always comes out looking great. She is great with color and with cuts, and lots of fun to boot. She is truly the best stylist I've ever had. You won't regret going to Amy.

When I first moved to Columbus 3 years ago I went through a lot of hairdressers and none of them could color or cut the way I wanted. Upon first meeting and talking with Amy I knew I was in good hands. She immediately brought out color swatches and listened to how I wanted my hair colored and styled. The results were AMAZING. I not only love my hair but get completed on it on a daily basis. She really takes the time to get to know you and to make you feel comfortable. I highly recommed Amy to anyone.

Amy has been my stylist for over a year now and i'm so glad that I have a stylist that knows how to color and cut curly hair. Because she has curly hair herself, she understands that it's no easy process; she takes the time to understand your hair and what will work best for you before diving in. Plus, she gives great tips on how to care for your hair, as well as properly style it. I highly recommend her and her new location -- Salon Lofts on 5th in Grandview.

Amy is now an independent stylist at Salon Lofts on 5th Avenue. Her cuts are the very best (I always get comments about my great cut) and her selection of new color products has provided excellent results for my hair--softer, smoother texture, no metallic feel or look, great match to skin tone. Her "loft" is nicely organized for efficiency--and of course style. No difficulty finding parking at this location.

First of all, the Salon Lofts concept is great. This is a fun, trendy, inviting atmosphere. Amy used to work for Akada-thankfully they gave me her cell number, which is surprising for a salon where an employee is no longer working. I will have to give Akada props for that. Amy is so friendly, and easygoing. She listens to you, asks lots of questions, and even asks about the cuts/color that you've had in the past that you hated. She looks at your skin color, eyes, in my case freckles, and face shape. You will get a hair cut that is totally unique and suited exactly for you. I have not really had many bad experiences with stylists in the past, which is unusual, but I was with the same lady for about 10 years because she didn't take too much off my long hair which is important to me. However, my hair was lacking a certain something and needed someone with some flair to really bring out my personality and what cut and color will work best for me. Amy was able to deliver all of this and I'm very satisfied. Check out all her reviews at Akada on City Search. Almost all the outstanding reviews mention Amy. She has started her own business with Salon Lofts and is really making it happen. I think her prices are really reasonable. She also guarantees her cuts, color, services for 2 weeks. So, if you're not happy with anything she will fix it.
