I agree with NOLAmimi. As a previously-natural redhead, I know how difficult it is to get this color right. For years I've searched for the right person to do just that. After Hurricane Katrina, I had to start over and was very nervous

It has been a long time since I have had a cut and style this bad. I went three times, hoping to work with the stylist on improving the look. It was hopeless. I think they style too many old, southern women... I had to do the walk of shame every time that I left the salon. Beware! Not to mention that the place is absolutely filthy. The bathroom, where you change into your robe, has about an inch of hair on it. The whole salon needs a major makeover.

I moved to New Orleans a year ago and this is the only salon I have ever been to. I am very picky and Steven does my highlights so that they look very natural.
I try to go during the weekdays when I know Midnight will be there. You'll have to go to figure out what I'm talking about.
Anyways, if you are looking for great cut, color & blowouts.. everyone there is great. Kristin does a phenomenal blow dry.. and Steven does great highlights!!

I can't believe I have not tried this salon yet. I've been in the area way too long to not to! I finally found a colorist (Steven) who actually listens AND delivers. What I wanted was simple enough, to look like a VS model. But seriously, when I left, my hair had that sunkissed look with beachy layers. I wanted the ends lighter and a gradual fade from the root, which I got, and I LOVE it!! This is as close to VS as I'm ever going to get! Thank you Steven!

Steven did not listen to what I wanted and I left very dissatisfied. I'm at Tulane and tried other salons that are much better than this. It's also too over priced, I wanted my hair brown and it turned out red, seriously for $120? What a waste of time and money

Since moving to New Orleans four years ago from Massachusetts, I have placed all my hair-trust in this salon. I have been coloring my hair for almost ten years, and have grown to be picky about my blonde locks. Steven Sobel was the second salon that I have been to since being here, and I haven??t ever wanted to go anywhere else. That being said I have recommended the Salon to most of my friends, and we all have returned repeatedly to have our services done.
I am a student at Tulane, and need to get my hair done once every six weeks or so...very do-able at the salon.

The salon is very affordable for someone like me who??s a student for what you get when you walk out of the salon. Appointments are relatively available??usually if I have an event to go to within a day or two they will find someway to fit you in. They truly put the customer first. All the stylists are excellent in making sure that they have an exact picture of what you want, and will ask you specifics so that they can do their job efficiently.

The stylists and the owner make you feel very comfortable from the moment that you walk in the door to the moment that you leave. When one time I thought that my color hadn??t processed correctly, I wasn??t afraid to call and explain the situation because I knew that Steven would be concerned and make sure that the next time everything was perfect. I don??t have one specific stylist that works on me each time??I have found that the talent level of each one is high, and I trust each of them. They are also extremely personable! Out of all of the salons that I have tried both at home and here, I still would recommend SS as my top choice for a cut, color, or anything else you may need.

I started school at Tulane and was hoping to find a good salon nearby to cut my hair. I had no idea I would find it so close to campus though! I have been back to Steven Sobel's salon many times since and have never been disappointed with my cut.
My stylist, Rina, is very professional and does a great job with styling and cutting my hair. I love the friendly and casual atmosphere of the salon too, though it may be too small to fit in as many appointments as larger salons may be able to. I would say that the wait is worth it though, and have recommended many of my friends to go as well.
Another con may be that sometimes the phone will ring and one of the stylists will have to pause to answer it. But, even that isn't too distracting!
I'm unfamiliar with some of the more complicated functions of the salon, because I am a guy and only get a basic style and cut each time. But, I have friends that go to Steven's as well and they are always satisfied.
I am glad that I finally found a salon in New Orleans that is filled with professional, talented, and friendly stylists! Thank you!

Pros: Professional stylists, friendly, location, good value

Cons: small, needs full-time receptionist

Steven is amazing! I had long hair and wanted to keep it long but be healthy, he listened and did a perfect cut! Most places cut wayy too much off! I am a brunette and had never gotten highlights but wanted a highlighted subtle lighter look for the summer. He did a great job, not streaky at all and very natural and after he finished and I decided I wanted more done and I went back the following week and he did them free of charge. Steven is amazing and the rest of the staff couldnt be more lovely and professional. LOVED IT! THANK YOU STEVEN!

I can't say enough about how amazing Steven and his salon are. I went in not knowing what I really wanted for my cut or color and Steven was so patient and kind in explaining my options and what might be best for me. Getting my color done was so relaxing - Steven and his whole staff are so friendly and fun to talk to, I was comfortable immediately even though it was my first time there. Eric helped with the color and cut my hair - he gave me a cut that I couldn't have picked out better. I don't care how low he wears his pants or how many colors his hair is - I would always trust him to do my hair. And he made me laugh. A lot. I loved everything and everyone at this salon and am SO happy with my hair now and will not be going anywhere else or trusting anyone else to do my hair in NOLA.

I hadn't colored my hair in years when I came in. Eric does my hair and he's done everything that I asked and more--I'd suggest him to anyone. The whole staff is really great about being accommodating. The prices are much cheaper than a lot of places for the quality. It's on Maple, so it's close for anyone uptown. I would definitely advise anyone to check it out--the atmosphere is incredibly friendly, so not only do I leave with great hair but I have a great time as well!

I have had some very bad cuts and color from other salons. I had not been to a salon in about 4 years. But it was time to try one more time. SSSalon was the place to calm my nerves and hair. Monique and Steven helped me stay cool. I wanted a big change & we decided from blond to red would be the answer. A wild cut to match was perfect. My color is freaking beautiful. The red with blond highlights is just what I needed. The cut is wild and messy. Who couldn't love that. And if you want something more subtle they can do that too. Bottom line is, STEVEN SOBEL IS MY NEW PLACE. Thanks MONIQUE, STEVEN and BRANDI(for making me feel at home).

Having never previously colored or treated my hair in any manor, I was very nervous upon entering my first appointment at Steven Sobel Salon. Classmates had recommended I go to this hair salon on Maple, promising they were the best. They couldn't have been more right! Not only were they able to calm my nerves through conversations with their personable staff, but they delivered exactly what I had envisioned for my hair. They have got me hooked ! Every time I go in for my appointment I enter with confidence, knowing I will walk out with great hair. Their coloring is healthy and natural, resulting in COUNTLESS compliments everywhere I go.

A big thank you to Kristen and Steven for great advice and coloring!

He was so busy talking to other people while he cut my hair that the cut was the exact opposite of what I was hoping for: tailored to me. I may as well have been a mannequin at beauty school. It looked pretty good when I left, but that was the last time it looked good. He did not ask how I usually styled my hair and gave me a cut that did not pass the true test of a good haircut: it looks good even when you style it yourself. Unless I curl it the cut just looks ragged. I do not recommend trusting this salon with your hair. (The lady he was finishing when I arrived didn't look that great, either.) A con.

my experience at this salon is great, ive been goin see rena for color for about a year now and shes been doing a perfect color job on me and does exactly what i want every time! everyone there is helpful and very nice. i cant imagine going anywhere else since i found this salon. I will still come here and go to kristen or monique when rena is out on maternity leave, they are great and friendly too. the only thing i would change about this place is that it would be much more relaxing without a dog barking and digging in your purse for food, so leave any snacks at home!

Steven Sobel Salon is the best!!! Everytime I go to get my hair done it comes out absolutely amazing and Rena does great color. I went from a blonde to a red head in one day and it came out exactly how I wanted it. Not to mention when I was a blonde and would get highlights and lowlights done. Everyone there is so friendly and listens to what you want and knows what to do to achieve the best results. It's a very relaxing, open environment andI couldn't imagine getting my hair done anywhere else. So what are you waiting for, call them now and make an appointment!!!

i went to SSS a few times and wasn't impressed each time. Kristen and monique did and adequate job w/ coloring and were very sweet. the time it took to dye my hair (not even a cut) was ridiculous (2.5 hours) and the price was obscene (nearly $200 for color alone). The last time i went there a chubby brunette did my hair. Unbelievably rude, zero customer service.

In sum, I would reccomend Kristen and Monique to friends with deep pockets and time to waste.

ERIC did my hair just last week and have had lots of positive feedback . Color was fabulous and haircut great .The owner STEVEN was involved with helping to formulate the color and ERIC did exactly what was said , I felt confident with everything done. ERIC is a young talented hairdresser I guess for the amount of money I spent I might have expected a better groomed person. Nice looking person . But his hair I am not sure about.
{Blonde mohawk} and all I can say is pants on the ground. I will be back , maybe it is just a phase. Although the other cute girls also had the big BLONDE hair , young I guess. With all said I have now found my new salon in NEW ORLEANS.

I walked into the salon and requested advice on what sort of styles and such would look good with my face and expressed a few concerns about my hair that I'd like to correct. Neither of these were addressed by the stylist. It seems as if she merely evened out and trimmed my hair without styling it and without regard to what my type of hair needed. I walked in there ready to pay any price for an excellent haircut, and walked out thinking it was overpriced (Even though $30 isn't that much). I guess they assume guys don't mind mediocre haircuts (or won't notice). I usually get my hair cut at Cuttin' Loose (where I will be returning) but had to try this place because of the raves. I was going to give this place 3 stars because it was OK, but the the casually racist comments by the stylist deserve a 1-star reduction.

Steven has been cutting my hair for about 4 years now and I am ALWAYS happy with the cut. Monique does a wonderful job of my color and is always pleasant, upbeat and gives an incredibly relaxing shampoo massage! Everyone at the salon is clearly interested in making each of my visits a very positive experience. I'm so happy I found them!

After 20 years I can say that I have always received a consistently expert cut for baby fine hair and color is always spot on.....my hair never has that awful "dyed" look.
People cannot believe that I have such fine hair because Steven cuts it so well that it has so much body.
Monique and Kirsten are delightful -- both are very knowledgeable and talented.
The shop atmosphere is very inviting.
I recommend SSS to all!!

I went to this salon thinking it was the BEST in New Orleans ( because of the great reviews) well turns out, they turned my beautiful blonde locks ORANGE! can you say OVER RATED... maybe if you are an average Joe or a plain Jane then this would be a good place for you. Never again. I could have done this BS myself with an at home kit. FU thanks for ruining my hair before my wedding little girls

Pros: not the end of the world, I guess.

Cons: waisting my time driving from Biloxi to NOLA to this shithol

This is the best Salon I have ever been to in the city. Steven and his staff are incredible. My color and cut are the best ever. My Husband is not a fan of short hair and he was blown away and loves it at much as I do ! I recommend this wonderful salon to everyone.

thank you Kristen and Steven for the amazing coloring of my hair... You guys got it right on the money with the color i was going for .. Plus given that you had to correct the coloring and haircut that I had gotten from a previous salon, which was horrible (as you know). BUT Kristen and Steven thank you for correcting my hair and bringing life back into it.. I love love love my hair ..
Steven, i love how you just look at someones hair, facial frame, style, and personality and concoct a color and hairstyle that goes perfect for that individual. Kristen, i spent a couple of hours with you and you are a true perfectionist, you took time and great care with my hair and in turn it was perfect.. thank you guys Tess
see you again

Today was my first visit to the Steven Sobel salon and though I was a bit timid about trying a new salon I have to say, I was VERY impressed. Both Steven and Kristen (my colorist) were very professional and took their time to help me correct my color. I will be returning to Kristen from now on, shes given me the best color experience Ive had in years. Also, Steven, thank you for being involved and for your concern. Most salon owners are too busy or too concerned with other things to stop and provide individual attention to their guests. Thanks again, I love my red hair!

Pros: professional, friendly, patient

Kristen K. did my color and did a great job of it. I wanted a tough color to get, silver, (and I have dark hair which makes it even harder to achieve) and she did a great job of getting it there. She also made sure to tell me to call and let her know how it was working out so she would know if the bleached hair really took the color or if it faded. I will definitely go back since I know she is so careful and adequate about color.

I have always been thoroughly delighted with Mr. Sobel's skill in cutting and styling and recommend the salon without reservation!

I have been going to Reena for 6 months now and she
has given me the best color and cut that I have had in
years. It is definately worth the six hour drive to New Orleans!!!!

Pros: Excellent color and cut

This is a great salon, I got the perfect cut and the perfect color first try, and being from NYC, the price was very reasonable. Unfortunately, when I called back for a second appt., the girl who did my hair, Chelsey, was no longer there. However, I will give another one of their stylists a try.

I always was afraid to get a haircut until I started going to Steven's salon. I've never gotten a bad haircut or coloring over the past three years of going to this convenient Maple St. salon. Besides great haircuts, the salon is tastefully decorated and has a friendly goldendoodle to greet you (though don't leave any food around).

Pros: Good Converstation

I have been a client of Steven's since 1995. I originally went to him for color, expecting to leave with some shade of blonde, since I had been blonde as a kid and young teenager. However, he flipped through several shade books, consulted a co-worker, and came back to me pointing to a red. The rest is history. I have had many passing strangers compliment my "naturally" red curly, long hair. Sometimes I say, "thank you" and walk away, and sometimes I say, "Steven Sobel on Maple Street."
I will never let any one else cut my hair, because Steven truly understands the challenges of naturally wavy and curly hair...he has it himself! He never cuts my hair too short or in a fashion that will not work with my natural kinks.
The atmosphere is sleek but casual and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You may be greeted by Midnight (the gentle giant), grab a few Tootsie Rolls at the counter for some sugar, and select from a variety of reading materials near the comfy couches. There's an awesome back porch outside where you can hang out while your color or highlights set.
The clientele is of all ages, some men but mostly women, Uptown socialites and working women from the suburbs. The cost seems to be about average for a high-quality salon, but in other places the "penalty" for having long hair seems way out of whack.
As a hard-working, two-job-having Metairie woman, I do have to budget for my visits...but every visit is a treat and Steven is worth every penny.

Pros: Being greeted by Midnight

Cons: Being overly dependent on Steven

I went in for a much needed color and highlight. I hadn't had my hair colored in over a year. Steven perfectly matched my skin tones with my requests for highlights and color. Together, Steven and I figured out the perfect haircut for my lifestyle. It was a great experience and I would recommend this salon to everyone.

This was my first visit to Steven Sobel and I loved it! They staff truly understand that it's not just about about the haircut, but the entire experience. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked in the door. Monique was super. Not only did she give me an amazing new style, but her shampooing was best I've had at a salon in years. They also have an adorable dog, Midnight, running around! I would highly recommend this salon.

I have been going to the Steven Sobel Salon for over a year and can't say enough good things about my service and my hair! Rena (one of the fab stylists) gave me the most beautiful blond hair and is always a joy to talk to. Rena is very talented and thanks to her work, I have never felt prettier. Unlike the other salon's I have been to in New Orleans, they really do put the customer first, are not snotty and never make you feel like just a number. As long as I am here in New Orleans, I would never go to any other salon but Steven Sobel.

I love everything about this place! The staff are awesome, the BEST shampooing experience and of course, Steven is the BOMB! He is a true professional. He always listens to me and the ideas I have for my hair. He never enforces his "way" (like at some other salons I have been to) and I ALWAYS leave completely happy with my color and haircut. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone and everyone, you will not be disappointed!

Steven and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend them. It was a great experience all around....I received the color I exactly wanted and the cut was one of the best I have had. The salon is a relaxing and fun environment. Will definitely go again!

my hair color(and I've changed it a few times) always gets positive comments on how natural it looks. I'm old enough to have gray hair, and it's not gray, which is how people know. Have never been dissatisfied with a cut, and pretty much leave it up to the stylist. Very relaxing place to be taken care of.

I'm a guy with curly, wavy hair. I was never getting any satisfaction out of my haircuts till I came to Steven Sobel's hair salon. After my first haircut there I stuck like gum on hair to that place ever since. It's the only place I get my haircut now. And with however long I'm in and out of New York every year, I always wait till I come home to New Orleans to get my haircut. Yeah, he's that good! Everyone there is nice and friendly too. And whether you know or not how you want your hair cut, Steven always knows how to cut a marvel out of people's hair.
