Steven friendly while making appointment and afterwards. Taken on time for my appoinment. David understood what I wanted and made it better than expected. Have referred David to many women who complimented my hair cut. There is no upkeep,my hair falls into place even when I let it drip dry.
Pros: David is talented
Cons: not in Aspen
Finding a good salon and stylist in a new city is like wandering in the desert sometimes. Well, wander no more! Crush hair salon is a friendly place, full of professionals who clearly love what they do and they do it well. My color is always exceptional, my cuts are consistently what I ask for and the environment is clean, airy and warm. Give them a try, the prices are right, the services are great.
Pros: great sytlists, friendly, bright and clean atmosphere
Are you kidding me?! The 5-star reviews of this place had to have been written by employees of this place. When I mention "Crush" to any of my friends, they pretty much laugh like I do and say things like, "That place is awful." Here's why:
The receptionist is rude and has no problem calling customers (me) to say the stylist is running 45 min. late (no apology whatsoever). She told me this, then hung up, leaving me no choice but to deal with it, since they're ADAMANT about charging you if you dare cancel within 24 hours of your appointment.
The stylists have "we're so much better than our customers" and "don't bother me" attitudes.
You don't feel welcome when you walk in. You're pretty much told to sit down and wait for the stylist (20 min. in my case, EVEN AFTER THE 45 MIN. late I showed up at the request of the receptionist) No apology whatsoever from the stylist for making me wait so long.
The stylist listened to me for all of 30 seconds after asking me what I'd like done, proceeded to cut me off mid-sentence, and started working on my hair. I ended up with over-processed, fried hair. (This has never happened to me, and I've been getting the same kinds of highlights done for 11 years). I just lived with this because I NEVER wanted to go back to that place, and I knew, after how I was treated on the phone and in person, that they'd probably give me attitude and grief if I brought my fried hair to their attention.
As for the cost? WAY MORE EXPENSIVE than any other LoDo salon I've been to. ASK FOR FULL PRICES BEFORE agreeing to anything- I CAN NOT belive how much this place charges for such mediocre (and in my case, horrible) service. GO ANYWHERE ELSE IN LODO- stay far away from Crush!!!
Pros: Good location
Cons: Everyone has an attitude there, hi-pressure sales, pricey
I've been going to Crush Salon for about 7 months now. Last night I had my hair cut and highlighted by Devin, and it is the best I think it has ever looked. You know you have good hair when strangers ask who does your hair whenever you step outside. Crush Salon is in a great location! Plus, I love the modern look of the salon, and their beyond reasonable prices. Downtown Denver salons are so overpriced, but not Crush. You get the best hair for the best price. LOVE IT! I will be going there maybe until I don't have enough hair left to style (when I'm OLD). I can't tell you how great I think this place is. Oh and Keratase (sp) is awesome and the smell is to die for....great products.
Cons: Parking I'm sure can be an issue. I work downtown and take the light rail so it isn't a problem for me.
David is pure genius! I met David in Denver when he first arrived. He did wonders for my hair...I have thick unruly hair. His color is always perfect; he takes the time to listen to what you want, and it always come out perfect. When he cuts my hair I don?t need any product when I get home to style as he does...always a sign of a good haircut.
I was so sad when I moved away...I have yet to find someone to give me as good as cut as David...even in Chicago! Whenever I know I am going to be in Denver I make an appointment.
I highly recommend Crush for all of your salon needs?you will not be disappointed with anyone in his salon.
I just visited Crush today for the first time. Sarah was my stylist and she was awesome! I am really picky about my hair and she not only listened and took her time, she gave me exactly what I wanted. On top of that - my appointment started right on time, the salon was adorable and very well kept and when I checked out, the receptionist (who was very nice as well) detailed my bill and the pricing info for me- very much appreciated. I will definitely be going back! (Only advice- bring change for meter parking)
Cons: Parking- but expected in downtown
A few years ago David was my stylist on the Main Line near Philadelphia. He broke my heart when he went to Colorado, and my hair has never been the same. David is creative, talented, sweet and funny. I can only imagine that he has a top notch crew at Crush as he did here. Ladies, you will never look better than you will after visiting Crush.
I will go here because I get the consistant attention and a great result in the end everytime. Great wine and cheese too.
I am very fussy about my hair, so when I moved to a new city I was concerned about finding the right stylist. I tried 2 other places before I went to Crush. The other two places did not do as I asked haircut or color wise. And the way they styled my hair afterwards was scarry. I met someone who got their hair done at Crush, so I decided to give it a try. Since I didn't know anyone there, I couldn't ask for a particular stylist, I got Wendi. Boy am I glad. She listened to what I wanted. She was very friendly too. I got and continue to get the best cut, and her coloring skills are outstanding. I always get compliments on my cut and color. It looks so natural. Never in my life have I been very happy with the way my hair is styled when I leave, but with Wendi I feel like I don't have to go home and fix my hair. I will continue to go back and recommend her to my friends. By the way, she gives a great shampo, it is so relaxing.
Pros: best cut and color and friendly stylist (Wendi) who listens to what I want
Cons: parking can be a challenge, since it is downtown, but I usually get a spot out front. There are also plenty of lots.
I have been going to Chanda for my unmanagable curly hair for almost 7 years now and Crush for about 6. I could'nt be happier with the service or Chanda. She is fantastic and always get my hair healthy, under control and looking GREAT! She uses all my favorite products, Kerastase, Bumble and bumble, and surprises me with a wonderful smelling shampoo or conditioner periodically. Crush is a fabulous chic salon with a friendly staff and a comfortable feel. Plus I can have complimentary juice and a biscuit while my scalp is getting a great head massaged! A+++ for Crush.
Pros: They use great products like Kerastase and Bumble and Bumble
Cons: I wish I had more money to spend there!
I moved from Australia 2 years ago and was anxious to find a hairdresser that uses Kerastase. I found Crush through Citysearch, made a booking with Chad and haven't looked back since. They not only do good colour but are very friendly and always provide excellent service.
I am ultra picky about my hair. I had this wonderful stylist in New York who I trusted completely and then went through several not-so-great stylists in Hawaii... so when I moved here, I was very scared about finding someone good. I found Crush on Citysearch and when I saw that they sold Kerastase I decided to try them out.
I got set up with Julli and she was amazing. She fixed a terrible haircut I was coping with, made my colour look great, and best of all, the price was fantastically cheaper than what I am used to paying. I've already made plans to return and recommend them to anyone else wanting great hair.
Pros: Clean, customer service, atmosphere
When I first stepped out of the salon I couldn't have been happier. I had brought in a picture of the style I wanted and had 7 inches taken off. My cut was a perfect match. A week later I realized one side was a 1/2 inch shorter than the other. The staff at crush were very personable and the salon itself is very cheery, but overall I don't think I'll be returning.
I scheduled a cut after a few friend recommended Crush to me. My cut was scheduled with Chad and he was absolutely divine. He even shaped my brows while washing my hair! The atmosphere was friendly and chic. I'll be back in 2 wks for a color job :)
Pros: affordable, skilled, contemporary
Cons: metered parking
I had my first visit to Crush recently and was immdeiately relieved when I met the friendly front desk staff. I don't mind spending a little extra when the environment and results are this impressive. I've been to my share of high end salons in Denver and this one is a definite standout.
Pros: Environment, Friendly Staff, Great Results
Cons: A little pricey
Carleton is absolutely wonderful for both cut and color. I would follow him anywhere.
When my hairstylist opened a beauty college, she had been cutting my hair for over 10 years. It wasn't a pleasant experience trying to find her replacement. Then a friend of mine told me about Carlton at the Crush salon. Never have I had such wonderful service. This is the best cut and coloring I have ever had.
I recently ran into a women with GORGEOUS hair and she referred me to see CARLTON at CRUSH! What a treat! From my "Heavenly" scalp massage to my "New Look" I've never looked so good!! Amazing Color...Amazing Cut and a wonderful "Chair-Side" manner! I found my new Image Consultant!" My husband's hooked now too!!
Just can't say enough about the style David gave me. The cut and color are just perfect. I was a little nervose at first but David made me feel so relaxed. I would trust him to cut my hair blind folded. Just can't say enought. Make an appointment at Crush and let David make you beautiful!!
Pros: style, color, product
I just came from my appointment this morning. I was a bit nervous only because "red" can be a hard color to make look natural and I never really know how it's going to turn out. I must say after leaving and getting to work I looked in the mirror and absolutely love it! The color is great and I have recieved so many compliments on it already. I"m going back for sure. Great atmosphere and I was waited on hand and foot. Thanks guys!
Thanks Chanda for saving my hair. I just moved to LODO and called the salon and asked to book an appointment with a stylist with experience with naturally curly hair, they recommended Chanda. Chanda took the time to talk to me about the options I had for my unmanageable mess. She started out with a Kerastase treatment ( WOW!!) and then did the most beautiful highlights I think I have ever had. Chanda then walked me throught my new Kerastase regimine and even followed up with a phone call a few days later.
Crush will definately be my salon of choice. Great products!
Pros: kerastase, Stylist, environment
