This is THE salon for those who have abused their hair with bad color treatments, perms, ect. OR who have never invested in a new hair style for themselves. If you've had the same hair style for the past 10+ years, you need to go here and ask for Robert, Owner/Stylist.

They are masters at color and hair care here. They market their own products and the "Touch" hairspray is the best HS I've ever used. My daughers steal it from me when they visit. I also luv the "Shu" sculpting paste.

I've been going here several years, and all the staff is professional, drama free and pleasant to talk with.

Robert is my stylist, and he is brilliant at helping each person find the look that fits their personality and face. I just love him!

You can get a cheaper cut/color elsewhere, but you get so much more than mechanics at this salon.

I had a friend who worked here and refered me to a stylist who I thought was very sweet and would do what I wanted done. My hair turned out too short, too light (I had asked for a chocolate mohagany color and recieved something in the med auburn range) and to be honest very dry and frizzy. I have very thick curly hair and was pushed from one stylist to another trying to have it fixed over 3 different visits and was very dis pleased with their attitude towards their mess up.

Pricey salon, but worth it for not having to return to have things 'fixed'. Talented stylists and colorists, nice location, lovely salon, friendly staff.

I was a walk-in and walked out with one of the most boring, mediocre haircuts I've ever had in my life. Don't let James Craig's website fool you. They're not as skilled as they claim. Better yet, do NOT let them touch your hair no matter how sweet the reception staff are if you go check them out!

Cons: my hair looked nothing like what i asked for even with pictures

I also use Emily, who is excellent although because of this it is sometimes hard to get an appointment with her. I don't think its too tough though and I'll gladly wait. The salon is very clean and professional run through management so everything always runs very smoothly. The staff are polite and bring you water, you also get a great massage after your hair is washed (brief, neck and shoulders) which helps you relax a little. Emily did my color before I went natural and I agree that she is the best colorist around, the other stylists at the salon seem skilled as well. The prices are a little steep but vary accoriding to stylist and are pretty on par for the area.

PROS: Best cuts, love the service.
CONS: Can be pricey

I found Emily at James Craig through my sister -- she'd gotten a great cut and color, and highly recommended going to Emily. Emily does a wonderful job listening to what you want, and then over-delivering on results. Emily's by far the best person that I've found for great color -- for me that's something that looks good, but natural too. I've referred several friends to Emily and they've all become happy clients.

James Craig overall is a lovely salon with friendly, personal service -- they send nice thank you's when you refer someone and greet you by name when you come in.

PROS: Consistently great service and attention to detail
CONS: Parking can be challenging in Saratoga
