I received my first and last haircut from Kim at this place last week. It is beyond horrible for a supposedly layered haircut. I have an appointment at a quality salon to get it fixed in two days. I only tried this establishment because of all the rave reviews. I can only conclude that the reviews are written by the horrible stylists.

Stay away!

Ive been going to Snips for awhile now for simple haircuts (I recommend Nancy) and things always went well, however this time around i asked for my hair to be colored and they were very unsuccessful in achieving what i had envisioned. I told them i was very unhappy with the end result and i wasnt pleased that i had to pay $150 for my hair to look the same as when i walked in. The manager was very rude, argued and raised her voice for a good 15 minutes, she claimed that it was what i asked for even though she wasnt at all involved with doing my hair. They offered to redo my hair & this time around all the workers did not say a word to me or try to treat me with proper costumer service. I was in Snips for 5 hours and even with the second attempt at trying to do my hair it still wasnt what i wanted.

Overall my experience there was embarrassing and uncomfortable, i wanted blonde "peek a boo" highlights with black hair and left with orange discolored highlights (that didnt even reach my roots) with dark BROWN dried out hair.

**UPDATE** after many calls and hassle i did recieve a partial refund..

I live in the neighborhood and I had not seen the salon, so I needed a haircut and decided to give them a try. I had a pleasant experience, very professional, loved my haircut and I will be returning again.

Went there for the first time and got a haircut and was impressed with everyone there. It's a clean, friendly salon. It had been awhile since someone really listened to what style I wanted. It turned out just the way I explained it. I'm definitely going back and recommending this salon to my friends and family.

Great place, very clean, all the stylists are friendly. Whenever I go in the place is jumping, lots of positive energy throughout the salon. I totally recommended it, you won't be sorry.

Alexis is great! On Friday 6/6 I went in for a specific hair cut/style i'd seen on TV. I found 3 examples in the hair magazines at the salon, none were exactly the same though. Luckily Alexis knew of this hair style from TV also. She did my cut PERFECT! I am very happy with my cut, could not be happier. I will be going back, especially if i can have it cut again by Alexis!

Pros: great price, not too long of a wait, great hair stylist

Cons: first thing in the morning appts not always available, waiting list sign in

Ever since this place changed ownership, it has been a wonderful experience. Every time I go in for a hair cut, I receive great customer service, haircuts, and color. I could not be more satisfied, especially since their prices are so reasonable. Every stylist is professional and capable of any service. The new owner (Venetia) is talented in running a great successful business and her staff is highly trained. I highly recommend old unsatisfied customers giving Snips another chance.

Nice, clean looking place with pretty comfortable chairs and plenty of mags to read while you wait.

The first time I went, I got my hair cut by this asian guy. He didn't pay much attention to my hair and it came out all crooked and lopsided.

Second time I went, I got my hair cut by Nancy (asian lady), and it was probably the best haircut that I have ever had. She was very careful and took her time cutting my hair exactly the way that I wanted. She also gave good suggestions and made sure that I knew what I was getting into before she cut my hair. Highly recommended.

Third time I went, I got my hair cut by this elderly lady, and it was by far the worst haircut that I have ever had in my life. She completely did the opposite of what I wanted. She was not up to date with the latest styles, so don't bother with her if you want a more trendy haircut. My sideburns were all messed up, and she didn't pay much attention to my hair at all and I could seriously think of a million things that went wrong. I had to go back to fix it, but doing that made it even worse! Keep in mind that I asked for a pretty simple haircut. I could've cut my own hair better. At least she had a good personality.

So it really depends on who you get to cut your hair. I would strongly recommend Nancy if you want an up to date stylist, because it seems that Snips caters mostly to older folks and more traditional hairstyles. It also helps if you know exactly what you want. I would probably also recommend the other asian stylists (minus the asian guy), because they seem to do a good job from what I've seen. If you have asian hair, go with the asian stylists.

Pros: Tidy atmosphere, good customer service (meaning they'll fix your hair for no additional charge), Good price (starting at $13), good if you want an old fashioned haircut. Nancy is awesome.

Cons: Half of the ppl there are not what you would call "professionals". Out of date stylists. Mixed bag- haircuts can range from terrible to amazing.

I went in and asked for a layered cut. The stylist did a nice job and it turned out pretty much what I wanted. Since I have thick hair, he also asked me if I wanted to have it thinned out and I said sure. No stylist has ever asked me that before so I didn't know it was possible to have hair thinned out. It's great to have much more manageable hair now. I have to say that it was one of the better haircuts I've gotten. The only negative that I can think of is when I was getting ready to pay, I was expecting for the stylist to tell me what the price would be. The sign in the store said cuts are $13 so I assumed that was the price I would be paying so I handed the stylist $20 and he gave me $2 in change. So that's when I realized that my price was $18. Even so, $18 was worth it, but it would have been nice to know that I was going to be charged for extra (I'm assuming for my long hair). Customers should be told their price and the reason for the price without having to assume. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I will go back there again.

If you just have a simple trim job or a mens razor cut, this is the place. You sill get good vlaue for your money. If you are looking for any type of style, don't go here. They don't get much training in lastest styles.
