Love it! Words can not explain how confident I feel walking out of AllenMay. I strongly recommended this salon. The service is great and so are the workers!

This salon is overpriced and has an over inflated reputation. Ali thinks he is the best barber/beautician but does not take any consideration in what the client wants when it comes to a haircut. His hot cut cost me $80 and is the worst cut I have ever had. I wanted 2 inches cut off my one-length hair and I left with all kinds of layers in my hair. When I complained about it to him, he berated me about not knowing what's best for my hair. His ego knows no bounds. My recommendation is to go anywhere but Allen May Salon.

**First I think it is important for everyone that reads these comments know there are signs all over Allen May salon that offer free gift certificates to people that post positive comments online about the salon**

Walking into Allen May Salon is a decision that I will regret for years!!!
After my divorce my hair suffered because of finances & time, as a single mom of 3 young children I neglected myself and was feeling very unattractive resorting to a ponytail most days but on the days I did my hair it would look great but I defiently needed a freshen up. I was excited to see a Groupon Now for a salon right near my house just 2 days before a very important event. I purchased it and was in Allen??s chair in less than 24 hours, I planned to have my blonde hair which was a couple of inches below my shoulders trimmed up and my blonde highlights freshen up. For some reason when Allen asked what I wanted to do I impulsively turned the question on him and asked ??what would you suggest?? He began to talk about how damaged my hair was (remember my self esteem and confidence is in the toilet) he insisted it needed to be cut and showed me a picture of a very short style and began to make a very convincing argument that this was the best haircut for me, I was shocked but at the same time I was getting excited that I might soon get pretty again. I took a picture of his suggestion and texted it to my boyfriend, I was having trouble getting the picture to go through and I was so unsure of what to do, I LOVED the idea of looking great but cut off all my hair???? I got the pic to go through via email and was waiting for an answer, I was so hesitant I even asked can we get started on the color and I will think about the cut, he said No and proceeded to very impatiently stand behind me waiting for an answer, feeling the need to make a decision NOW I said ??go for it? and instantly huge chunks of hair were hitting the floor....almost at the same time my friend texted back a sharp NO WAY!! It was too late I don??t know what happened within minutes of entering the salon all my hair was hitting for floor?.by the end of the cut Allen said that he really felt the best option for me was very short bangs (different from the picture) at this point I felt like 100% trust was my only option so I okayed the bangs. I went into Allen May with long blonde hair and left with one inch long red & yellow striped hair and the kind of bangs that little kids end up with when they get gum stuck in their hair. My hair defiantly could have benefited from a good conditioner but there was no reason to chop it all off. I was in shock?..he was insisting I looked great but I didn??t feel great. I kept trying to smile and telling myself it was just a big change and I needed to get used to it. I got to the register and presented my groupon and was SHOCKED to realize I was being charged $75 on top of the $65 groupon I already paid for. I was there to save money and was paying more than I ever did at my old salon?!?!?!? I paid and left, when I got home my daughter started crying, my boys asked why I got THEIR haircut and my boyfriend looked like he saw a ghost?..It is 2 weeks later and I have not received a single compliment!! no one likes it!! I have spoken to Allen and he stands by it all and claims to want to make me happy but the damage is done and is irreversible. On the phone he told me "stop taking your personal problems out on me" & hung up on me. The cut is horrible on me, I am almost 40 and for the first time all my new wrinkles caused by my divorce were completely visable, my big ears that I have been self conscience about since I was a child are sticking out?.I am mortified I feel like a 10 year old boy. Any hairstylist that considered a client a person, and not just a head of hair would have seen that I was so unsure I was trying to get an opinion via text, I asked to start on the color and would have given me some time to make such a major decision. I am so mad at myself for allowing this to happen. I have cancelled plans with friends, bought hats, a wig, had the color redone twice (once by Allen) and I am actively researching extensions. All things I can??t afford!!! I don??t know what else to do I feel like I??m living a nightmare!! My advice to anyone looking for a new hairstyle, take time to consider your options, start slow (you can always cut more later but you can't get it back) and most importantly STAY AWAY FROM ALLEN MAY!!!!

Saw an ad in the paper and thought I'd check it out. WOW! Very upscale place. I had Ali cut my hair, and not only did we decide on a length TOGETHER to help get rid of my damage, but he informed me about all the build-up that was on my hair from what I thought were high-quality products (i.e. Paul Mitchell) After a clarifying treatment and a follow up conditioner my hair felt A LOT better!! Just by him taking the time to explain to me what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it, he has a client for life!! I trust him with anything, and he is even doing my bridal up-do!!

I very seldom visit day spas, but was given a gift certificate from my husband, Well what a truly wonderful experience I had, Not only was the enviroment peaceful and relaxing but Lorraine the Esthetician who did my facial was very thoughtful and attentive she definately gave me the best facial I have ever had, her knowledge of skin, humor and not to mention her British accent has me now hooked. I no doubt will be going here regularly and now my husband never has to think of what to buy me again.

If you are looking for a little pampering and don't mind paying some money, Allen May is the place for you. They offer a wide range of spa, hair and nail services.

I have personally had pedicures, manicures, hot stone massage and hair cut/style. My mom joined me one day, and did a wrap (don't remember which one, though). All were VERY good. Top-notch, really. But you definitely pay for it (e.g. pedi with tip- $60)- but it is definitely worth it, if you have the $$.
