I have been a client of First Edition's for nearly ten years. I love them! I'm saddened and slightly suspicious of the negative remarks. The entire staff have been nothing but absolute professionals towards me, warm and friendly. I'm alway 100% satisfied with what I've paid for at First Edition and it's a great feeling to know you look like a million bucks when you walk out their doors.

I have always had excellent service at First Edition. I have had 3 hair stylists since I've been going there, and all have given me a great haircut and coloring. I LOVE the no tip policy - it makes things so easy - and the prices are still very fair. I also love the atmosphere - it's the only salon in town that comes close to a "spa" like environment.

I went to this salon for several years but my old stylist no longer works there. I finally decided to go back and try someone new, and it was the WORST haircut I've ever had in my life! I have long, straight, simple hair, and it is NOT that hard to cut. However, somehow I ended up with my hair uneven, and I pointed it out so she tried to "fix" it. That left me with a big chunk out of the previously longer side. I just paid and left before she did anything to make it even worse. Anyway, it looks horrible, and I will not be going back. Now I just have to find someone else to fix it for real.

I went here because they had been around forever, so I figured they had to be good. Sadly, enough, it was the worst experience I have ever had, or my hair has ever had. I could go on forever, but I'll just touch on the fine points. I came, prepared, with specific pictures of the exact color and highlights I wanted and also pictures of what I didn't want. Well, guess what? I got the latter. And to make it worse, the stylist lied right to my face telling me how beautiful the color was! It was exactly what I didn't want. Red with orange highlights!!! I told her it was not right and she basically said, too bad. Wait a week and call me if you still don't like it. I told her no, I was not leaving until someone fixes it. She said, sorry, I'm busy the rest of the evening. I finally went to the front of the salon and started complaining and they handed me off to some new girl who merely put a dark rinse on it. It was gone after 2 days!!!. If they had just accepted responsibility. But, they are a bunch of snobs and the owner is extremely rude. A refund would have been a nice touch. Hah. Don't go there unless you are prepping for Halloween!

For a place that prides themselves on a "No Tip Policy" you would think their service would be better. I explained to the stylist what I wanted and what I didn't want. Somehow she gave me exactly what I told her NOT to do. The owner refused to let another stylist correct it, and they still charged me half price because "she did cut some of my hair"! This place is aweful!!!!

PROS: The owners are extremely rude
CONS: The stylists don't know how to cut

I have had my eyebrows waxed several times now at New Edition. Every time they have turned out great. One thing I love, they have evening appointments. I have never had a bad experience and the staff is always friendly. There is also a water/rock fountain that is very soothing in the room where the waxing is done. Very clean. I love it.

I have been going to First Edition off on for almost 15 years. The stylist had for 10 years left and I have tried several different stylists since then. I have very curly hair and they do not have a good stylist who understands curly hair. I have gotten my hair highlighted there once and I had go back and get it redone. The place has a young college girl feel to and it doesnt have the refinement, I am looking for. The good thing is that they have Aveda products.

First Edition is a wonderful, classy place. You feel like you are in a super expensive salon but prices are moderate. I had to wait for 10 minutes over my appointment time because my stylist was a little behind and they gave me a complimentary paraffin dip. It was unexpected but nice! I've never had a bad experience there. Parking is tiny. Music they play is annoying. They always offer you a soft drink. Products for sale there are pricier than what I like to spend though and I buy my hair care products elsewhere. They offer Aveda products and I prefer Redken.

I was told by several college students that this is where all the sorority girls go for their haircuts. I figured I would give it a try. They recommended a specific stylist, but I couldn't get in for like 8 weeks with her, so I picked someone who the receptionist promised would be good.

It took this girl almost 4 hours to color, highlight, and cut my hair! It did not turn out well at all as my roots and the rest of my hair were different colors. I ended up having to go back and get it redone.

Otherwise, the salon itself was okay. The people were moderately friendly.
