My daughter and I decided to try a new salon together as a fun girls day out. I have been unsatisfied with EVERY haircut I have ever gotten in the past while even being a client of a very high end salon in Fairfield & Southport for many years as well as another Hamden salon. It is so customary for me to resign myself to the forever thought that worst case scenario I will just wear my hair in a ponytail. I was paired with the owner and she was dead on with my best possible scenario. When she was done and I saw myself in the mirror I could hardly believe it was me! My daughter and I both left feeling as though we had both been given the attention a salon of more expense would have given us. I have frizzy/curly/course shoulder length hair that never really had a style and my daughter has long wavy fine hair. We will both be returning to this salon with every confidence and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new salon or may be on the fence.

Well I got my hair cut today at Hair Chateau by Laura and i am truly beaming . I gave her some pictures to show her what type of hair cut i like and she did exactly what i wanted and better. I haven't had a great cut like this is such a long time

The staff was great and so friendly . What also impressed me is that even thought i was being picky Laura understand and did exactly what i wanted. She even showed me how to do my own hair and get the same results as she did. It was well worth the mondy and then some.

Im going back in 6 weeks.

Pros: They know what they are doing when they cut your hair and the cut it well

Stay away! They didn't listen to my request (I have long, straight, fine hair and just wanted a trim) and gave me a child's haircut from a previous decade--short and curled neatly under the whole way around (with a U shape sagging down in back), but I'm 35!! It was really embarrassing and I had it recut in less than a week. I found the people in the store friendly but a bit crass, and couldn't get over what they were doing to other people's hair... I haven't seen so many baked blondes in one place since the 80s, and the girl in the chair next to me was having ringlets (ringlets?? on a 20-something?) curled into her hair, so I'd watch each one sprayed and then steaming (steaming??) away under the curling iron, and thought perhaps that explained her "baked hair" look. Oddly, the stylists themselves were stylish, so I'm not sure why they didn't do the same for anyone visiting the salon. As a finishing touch, the magazines in the salon were also bizarre--I normally look for things on well, _style_ when I'm at a stylists, but all their magazines were about depression and losing weight. Oops, there was one on style, but it took the angle of "edgy" and had a section on S&M styles!! So strange. But perhaps I'm not the typical audience compared to other people who have written reviews so far, since this salon was in my normal price range.

I just wanted to put in a word for Hair Chateau as a place for guys' haircuts as well. Maria I. has been cutting my hair for about a year now and I've never been happier. She's not afraid to try new things, but nothing too crazy for me -- and somehow they always seem to suit me. Everyone I've dealt with is friendly and professional. You'll pay more than you would at SuperCuts, but believe me, it's worth it.

I do not trust my hair to anyone else but the girls at Hair Chateau! Laura is my main stylist and I have been a loyal client for more than 5 years. She can do absolutely anything I request and always listens to what I want. I have NEVER been disappointed. From my wedding day to everyday looks, I have loved every single thing I have ever gotten done there. By far, the best salon around!

The prices at this salon do not equal the skill of the employees. You could get a better hair cut or color at a hair dressing school! I made the mistake of having my hair highlighted here and the stylist had no clue about hair color - i.e., if you want to cancel red in hair color you need to mix a cool tone into the color. It was a complete waste of time and money, plus I looked terrible. Please save your hair and your money and go somewhere else.

i was referred to this salon by a friend whose daughter used them for her prom. i was matched up with Lauren and couldn't have been happier. her style and personality is awesome and she made me look so beautiful! we had gone with one style in the beginning and both agreed that it didn't match the look i was going for. on the day of my wedding, we put our creative minds together and came out with an excellent style for me. the entire staff there is awesome and the vibe of the business is very sheek and high end. love the decor and the inviting qualities of all of the staff and stylists.

PROS: Price, accomidating, innovative style, pampered me!
CONS:
