I am new to the area and the salon I previously went to was very high end. This salon markets themselves that way and indicates that they carry products like B&B to make you think they are. They are not. I merely went in for an eyebrow wax and hair trim and it was awful. First I wanted an 30 minutes after my appointment time for the wax and the woman came out only after I complained and she was eating. I am growing my hair out so all she had to do was trim. She did not even do that. My layers were choppy and my hair was uneven in the front. I asked her to fix it and she said it was not uneven that's just how the cut is. I left and went to a different salon that fixed my hair. I have never been so disappointed anything. Do not make the mistake of going here.

I wanted to have my hair restyled so I made an appointment with a master creative stylist, Antonella. I took a picture of the style I wanted and talked about it with her before my haircut. She told me, no problem I love the challenge of restyling someone's hair. She was very friendly and we had a good conversation, but when she was finished blow drying it out I realized she had merely trimmed the ends of my current style and totally ignored what I wanted. I could have demanded she recut my hair, but when a stylist proves they aren't listening to you I don't want to take the chance of having it ruined for months until it can grow back out.

Pros: friendly stylist

Cons: terrible haircut

DO NOT go here for facials. Prices are exorbitant and they don't even do a decent enough job. Face massage and exfoliation were crappy. She dint even give enough steam to my face and started extracting on closed pores which hurt(hope they don't leave a scar).

Will never go back here for facials.

I have been a client at the Kildaire Farm Road salon for over 15 years. Teresa does my hair and color and she is fantastic. I am sorry to read some of the negative reviews above. I have friends who use this Lochmere location and they always look great. Ask for Teresa, she is a colorist and stylist and does great work. As I understand it Darrell has moved to another salon somewhere in the area (Fall, 2009)

Pros: Clean, professional upscale salon

Cons: Appointments can be hard to get during holiday time

I dont typically take the time to write reviews but, in this instance I thought that it only right to give credit to this salon. I havent been a client for long but the last three apointments I did have were excellent. My sched is a bit crazy so I had to see a different stylist each time but, given my circumstance I still got the service I needed when I needed it! I saw Jay, Fabian, and Matthew at different locations which was actually interesting because the level of attentiveness and appeal to simply sit and be transformed was unwavering. Also the assistant "Brie" did an excellent job when straightening my hair which I have a world of difficulty doing myself. I could tell in my years of expirence with other salons in Syracuse NY and California that places like J&F are hard to find. When I left, I felt lifted and I think thats the best thing you can hope for in a salon. Even when I walked into the doors I was treated from the receptionist desk until I was sitting in a chair. I'm actually excited about my next apt!

Pros: BEST TIME, WORTH THE WAIT

.

MY stylist Homi is just great. I can sit down and let her
cut my hair knowing that she will do it right. This is
a hard thing to find in this area of the country.
I just love Homi and feel very comfortable with her and
I like the atmosphere of the whole salon.
I am intimidated by a lot of upscale shops, but not this
one.

I just received a phone call from Connie at your Stone Creek store to cancel my sons appointment because apparantly Antonella is too good to cut my 16 year olds hair. I was told Antonella does not do childrens hair, even though she has already cut his hair 4 times, and funny I was never charged CHILDRENS prices. I assume it is bcause,the last time he was in he may have been unclear on what he wanted her to do, which obviosly annoyed her. He was in no way dissrespectful or rude and handled himself as a true gentleman. I called to make him another appointment which was for Friday. We are leaving town on Saturday morning for an affair, now I need to find another appointment quickly. In this economy you should be grateful for people willing to come in and pay top dollar for a haircut, she always received a very good tip as well. I am appalled that the managemnt/ownership allowed her to make this call, instead of just being slightly inconvenienced and respecting the appointment. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!

I had an absolutely horrible experience with this salon. My former hairstylist, Alan, messed up my cut not once but twice. I trusted him to cut it again even after he messed up the first time and even told him about the error and he still ruined my bangs. Not only was the service bad and overpriced, but Alan bad-mouthed other paying customers in front of me! Overall, just rude and snooty atmosphere. NOT recommended.

I didn't want to overspend so I chose a "classic" design women's haircut for $40. It was worth every penny. My stylist took about an hour with me. She shampooed and massaged my scalp and neck -- such a treat! And she consulted for about 10 minutes with me on the look I was going for. She kept the conversation interesting and fun throughout. When I opened my eyes I saw my beautiful, new cut and felt like a million bucks! As I left the salon I kept looking at my reflection in the shop windows, squeezing very second out of that feeling. Andee was terrific. I'd highly recommend her.

Darrell has been doing my hair forever and I absolutely love him! I am truly blessed to have known him because he not only was my hair stylist but a true friend. Lita is the most caring and sweetest person ever. She is attentive and intelligent. They're great friends.

Jay is a great stylist... I refused to set foot in the Preston Walk salon after having a horrible experience with Rob. He was by far the worst hair dresser I have ever had. I'm not sure what his problem was but it has been almost a year and I can't forget the horrible cut and service I got from him.
I tried a few other salons but when I first moved here Tara who used to work at the Preston Walk salon did such an excellent job and I didn't want to write off the salon b/c of a person like Rob...obviously they hire real talent like Tara. I decided to give it another whirl at a different location where Jay worked after reading his rave reviews. He did a really great job. I was very pleased not only with his styling ability but also his personality. He wasn't an arrogant and self absorbed person like Rob and he really knew what he was doing. Very pleased and thank you for such great talent:-)

I have been using this shop since the opening, and have used a particular hair stylist for years before. They have always listened to what I want and been very attentive to my needs. Even fitting me in when I had a hair emergency. I highly reccomend this shop for their services and quality products.

Pros: I feel beautiful when I walk out of there.

Wow, I'm surprised folks have had bad experiences. Julian has been cutting my hair for years.I have had long,short,curly and color and highlights you name it. I have never observed any behavior that I would consider "being looked down on". I usually go in with my stay at home mom look and come out looking great. I'm never dressed to impress anyone when I go in.
Never had any confusion with appointments or rude staff. The girls at the desk have always been sweeties and have manage to remember me when I need to fit in for a cancellation if I've had to change an appointment.

Pros: great hair everytime

Cons: funky hair salon music

For the calibre this hair salon boasts I have to say it is not at all what is the case. They boast like some really upscale salon, but really are very mediocre. I found the front staff terribly inconsiderate and not very kind. I felt looked down upon and never really listened to. The female stylist I had started to be ok but quickly let me know she was in charge and had an attitude that she was doing me a favor! Her work was inconsistent and you could never talk directly to her about it. Honestly I felt like she had an exaggerated sense of importance. If you dare question her or suggest something that you know about your own hair it was really frowned upon. Having lived in Chicago and Denver, I found they wanted to be competitive with the trends and styling. But without really top notch customer service and stylists that really care and are sincere and a front staff to match, this girl said bye bye. I can think of better Salons to spend my money. Frankly it seems without Jay they may not have much of a salon. Wake Up! Real, sincere,service is still a cool thing! not a dirty word!

Pros: An ok location

Cons: Nil on customer service. Nil on caring about what you want. Aweful receptionists; don't care a bit!

Initially I felt this salon was a very pleasant experience. I felt Jay was pleasant and cared seeming to know what he is doing. Had I gone to him I would probably still go there. However, it was my experience the women there are not customer service oriented . I find them to be more wrapped up in themselves and how they look than in the customer. I felt my stylist was moody and was not a good listener. When she made an error in my color, I felt she nor the staff really cared. I felt they were rude and condescending. The salon looks good and has nice products. But in my opinion they are not there for the customer. It was my experience they did not really know what it means to be a customer, nor to listen to what the customer wants. I found the experience to be a disappointment.

Pros: Good Hair Products

Cons: Poor service and poor communication

For the quality that this hair salon claims, they sure don't know how to treat customers! I had a standing appointment for a hair cut for at least a month. I show up for my appointment with the appt. card. For a 1:45 appt. They said you should have been here at 1:00 today. I showed them the card and they said oh we screwed up. Yeh, then she said if you wait 15 minutes we can 'fit you in'. Fit me in!! I'm paying for 'this time' for myself! 50 minutes later! They get me into the chair and I get a 'dusting' maintenance trim! Then they had the audacity to charge me $40.00 for a hair cut. BTW, you screwed up the appointment, the time spent on my hair was 15 minutes!! I've been coming to the salon for 2 years. But, this is it! $40.00 for a 'dusting/trim' is ridiculous! Caveat Emptor(Buyer/customer beware!)

If you would like to place yourselves in the hands of truly competent and pleasant hair stylists, this is definitely the place you want to be. Jay takes care of my hair. In my first meeting with him, I found him to be most accomodating, patient and very insightful. He listens to your needs and then is able to translate that into a style that suits both your face and your lifestyle. Jay stays up to date on the newest trends and techniques and is able to apply them in a way that compliments the individual. This place is wonderful!!!!

Pros: Even offered me a glass of wine, soft drink - very nice experience

Cons: a bit difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area

After visiting several other stylists with similar prices and years of experience, I have finally found the one I am sticking with...Jay at J & F Gemelli is great! He suggested a cut that fit my face shape, etc. very well and did an excellent job of cutting it. He took time to decide what look would be best and did a very thorough job making sure it was cut correctly.

Darrell is by far the best stylist I have ever met. He does not just give me the hair style he thinks I should have or the hair style I may first ask for. He listens to what I say and then helps me find a cut with in the style I like that will be flattering. He really takes the time to understand me and even has new ideas when I come in for my next apointment. I would Highly recomend him and I will never go to anyone else except Darrell again.

Wonderful atmosphere, great hairstylists and colorists. Very professional environment and they really listen to their clients. Not overly expensive either. They sell higher end hair products and can fix the most dated of hairdos. Highly recommend.

If you want someone here who does a fabulous job cutting hair and working with color, then see Darrell. Great Job! I have a challenging hair color because I have 3 colors "chuncked" throughout my hair. When I moved here from California, it took several trial and errors at other salons before I came upon him and HE GOT IT RIGHT! Thanks.

After moving here from Fairfield County, Connecticut and trying several other supposedly high-end salons (and being quite disappointed), I finally found "the place." I get my cut and color done here, as well as a straighening blow-dry every week. The staff is extremely professional, skilled,and gentle. The salon is very attractive (bright, new, and modern) and the entire experience is soothing. They use top-notch products (no cheap color here). More than any other salon in the triangle, this comes closest to the NY salons I frequented when I lived up north. I highly recommend it.

LOVED my hair. See Royce! Amazing. I can honestly say that I have never had my hair done that I did not rush home to wash it out. This time, I didn't even wash it the next day. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to duplicate the style. It was no problem. I was there for an hour - she took her time, she was not chatty, she listened to my request, and more importantly, she gave her honest onpinion as to what she thought would look good with my face.
