I have fine/limp hair and I typically do not write reviews. I have historically moved from salon to salon seeking someone who could give me good advice and make my hair something it is not naturally. I called Salon 21 and was scheduled to meet with Talia. I went there a week ago, wow. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very warm. They made me feel welcome. Talia was great. I am not a hair expert, I just knew I was looking for something that worked and I was not sure what that looked like. Talia gave great advice and we just went for it, with my permission of course. Although I would have never went there without her advice. She wanted me to feel comfortable but her suggestions were comfortable. She listened to me. We went to a medium cut and she gave my hair volume and dimension. The cut is great - the color is great. I am naturally dark blonde and no one (except Talia) to date has suggested giving me a light cool blonde to highlight my natural. I said ""go for it"" and the results are awesome. I have received so many compliments on the cut and the color. My hair has dimension and volume. She did exactly what I needed, she had a vision--- and she was right! I am going back in 10 weeks and will recommend her to anyone. Thank you Talia!

I work downtown and went to Salon 21 for convenience...received my best haircut ever! The stylist was Suphee. The price was pretty reasonable, especially considering what barebone barbers around here charge.

I went there after purchasing a living social deal for salon 21 ($20 for a haircut that?s worth $50+) and I was really afraid that since it was a ?deal? they would rush or not really listen to what I wanted, etc. But I was pleasantly surprised. I arrived there on time, and was immediately greeted by my hairstylist, who although seemed like she was young and nervous, was very professional. The shampoo/conditioner treatment was really relaxing and long. I explained what I wanted; she listened to me and made some recommendations. At that point, I was still really afraid that I?d been placed with the new kid because I had a coupon. But she did a fantastic job and it looked really great. She spent a lot of time on my hair and was very attentive to what I?d told her. The place is also really pretty, well-lit with a lot of windows and hardwood floors. My boyfriend went there too, with a living social deal, and his hair has never looked better (and he?s used to paying $60+ for haircuts). We are both hooked for life and Salon 21 is now our salon of choice.

It's a shame that sometimes the 1st appt is the best, but downhill after that. Salon 21 is overrated; haircuts are overpriced. I have long wavy hair that I'm growing down to the middle of my back, so I go only for ""dusting"" trims to whisk off split ends, but asking me to pay $55+ to ""dust off"" my ends is a no-go. That is ridiculous--It's NOT a cut, it's a trim. I'm taking my service elsewhere. Rip someone else off.

I went to Salon 21 becaue I had gotten a terrible dye job at another salon! I had wanted my hair dyed brown, but ended up with inky black gothic hair! Yikes! I booked an appointment with Manuel, and I left the salon with hair pretty close to my natural color! Manuel did a great job and was very attentive to what I wanted. I was impressed with everyone at the salon. Everyone was eager to offer advice on how to fix my problem!

I moved from Charlotte, NC two years ago and was looking for a stylist in Raleigh. I tried a few other salons that I will not name, but was not happy. I found Salon 21 through Citysearch and chose them because they carried products I used. Cameron was the stylist assigned to me. I gave her a general description of what I wanted and she nailed it! The cut and style were perfect and she is so friendly. I of course returned to get my hair colored, she offered professional advice and suggestions but always listened to what I wanted. The result was fabulous. Cameron goes out of her way to please you with very reasonable prices. Now my whole family goes to Salon 21 including my mother who drives 2 1/2 hours to see her. Salon 21 is full of wonderful people who are always friendly and professional. The Salon is very relaxing and tastefully decorated in a beautiful part of the city. Go see Cameron today, you won't be disappointed!!!

I had bleached, burnt, stressed hair and a BAD, BAD haircut! I called Manuel, and explained to him my dilemma and desires. He eased my nerves and made me feel comfortable in his chair. He foiled my highlights VERY fast - might I add, we talked and chatted (he has a great personality) and before I knew it ""VIOLA!"" it was time to process! He even threw in a free conditioning treatment, because he had to cut another client for a few minutes. This is what I call REALLY caring about your clients! At the end of it all, I walked out of that salon THRILLED with my new look! The color was even better than I'd imagined, the cut was AWESOME and my hair felt the best it has in years, thanks to the treatment! Bottom line - I L-O-V-E this salon, and Manuel has a client for life!! Did I mention that it was reasonably priced????? YEP!! GO SEE MANUEL...YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Pros: A great stylist who is a true artist with vision!

Cons: parking is challenging, but worth it!

When I came to Salon 21 I needed a change for my hair but didn't know exactly what. Cameron gave me a great new cut and fabulous highlights without me having to describe to her exactly what I wanted. I just gave her some ideas of what I did and didn't like and she took it from there. For over a year now I've been going to Cameron and have never been anything but thrilled with the results. Cameron is by far the best hair stylist I've ever had!

I have enjoyed working with Natalie in the past, as she understood my hair better than anyone. She is no longer working there and they will not tell me where she went. Does anyone know what salon Natalie is working at now?

After living here for two years and having difficulty finding a great hairdresser, I found the best! I went there for my first visit on September 24th, and had hair designer Talia, she did a fantastic job, she listened, cut and style for a very REASONABLE price and worth every penny! As I have found being from Illinois, hair maintenance in Raleigh/Cary is extremely high! This salon ROCKS! I'll be returning for my cut and color next!

I received a cut and highlight at this salon. The staff was friendly and the highlights were fine. But the cut /style was awful. And it is the cut that will not go away! I have been to several other salons to have them fix what was done at this salon. It was uneven in spots and cut very strangely. A stylist who saw this mess, asked me what the stylist was thinking when she cut it. I am sure there are some good stylists at Salon 21, but I will never go back again and risk this same thing happening. Do not waste money here - you will regret what is done to you. I am withholding the stylist's name, but if a salon has someone on staff this horrible, I doubt any of them are worth the money.

I love Salon 21.I have been going to Salon 21 for over 5 years. Not only do you get the best hair services available in Raleigh...you also get a great friendly staff that always treats you like family. I have had a number of Salon 21 stylist work on my hair over the years. They never disappoint! Toni (owner) is still my favorite though... I can't say enough! Thanks girls !!!

This salon is amazing! The salon is not only beautiful, the stylists are so friendly, and I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in the door. The receptionist immediatly asked if I would like a drink and noticed that I seemed to be a little harried. She commented that now I could just relax and get pampered. I had the best haircut and color I have ever had and I have been all over the world. I had been traveling back to Miami for my hair but a friend suggested that I give Salon 21 a try. My stylist Toni was so knowledgeable and professsional. She took the time to find out what I wouldn't like and made suggestions. My highlights are incredible, and my cut is chic and fabulous! I also came away with the knowledge of how to repeat my style at home and what products would be best for me. I highly reccommend Salon 21. They are wonderful!!

Upon moving to Raleigh from Florida in 2001 I immediately embarked on a search for a hair stylist that would be able to exceed my expectations of my former hair stylist or at the very least copy their work. After trying a countless number of salons I have finally found (7 years later!) an extremely talented stylist at Salon21 by the name of Talia. I was originally scheduled for a haircut but asked her when I arrived if she had any time for a color. She did and choose a color that I am thrilled with! I had been coloring my own hair since I was unable to find a good colorist and basically stumbling around when it came to a good cut. I am a hair and makeup artist for special events so I will say that I am somewhat picky when it comes to hair. Talia has made me very happy. :)\r\n\r\nFantastic haircut as well and she very pleasant to be around and extremely professional. I highly recommend Talia and look forward to our next appointment! :)\r\n\r\nJen C

From my experiences with Salon 21, I would say that if you want good service, friendliness, professionalism, respect, honesty, and fairness, do not go there. With so many great salons in Raleigh, I would strongly recommend that you do not choose Salon 21.

Sounds silly, but I drive all the way from my home in Charlotte to get my hair cut at Salon 21. Jennifer is great !!! She's consistant, but never boring with her cuts/color, or personality. Toni, the owner did my hair for my wedding and it looked perfect (and I'm really picky !!!). So definitely check them out. BTW. They carry Pureology hair products too. For those of you not in the know, this stuff is liquid gold for hair.

Stephanie cut my hair and it is definitely the best haircut I have gotten in a long time. She listened to exactly what I wanted and gave me some suggestions-all which ended up in a cute stylish cut that is easy to manage. The prices are SO reasonable. I will recommend Salon 21 and Stephanie to my friends. Thanks for a great experience and a fabulous haircut!

I think Salon 21 is okay. A bit pricey but that's expected for a downtown, hip salon. Unfortunately their best stylist, Sonya has moved down the street to The Birdcage. They definitely lost an asset right there.

As a teacher, my salary is mostly consumed with fixed expenses, but I've always been known for my hairstyles. Therefore I am very choosy about my stylist. I honestly cannot rate the work of any stylist but Andrea. I found her my first visit to Salon 21 and hope I never have to find another stylist. She's the greatest! I always receive complements on her cuts, and her color. My only concern is working the price into my small variable budget. Forty dollars for a cut may seem small for some, but as a teacher, its a stretch, especially if I need color and a cut. \nOverall, the prices at Salon 21 are very reasonable and a great value for the service if you can afford it.\n

I had just moved to the area when i began searching for a salon to chop off my waist-length super-thick hair and style it. I was nervous but soooo lucky to find Salon 21. The atmosphere is clean cut and simple, the staff was nice and not snotty. Sonya was wonderful and I was extremely pleased with my cut. I have found my salon in the area. If you want a good haircut you pay for it so I didn't think the price, around $40 was too much, especially when others have ""long hair"" charges that would have cost me much more.

Salon 21 is awesome! I was so scared to cut off my hair (it'd been long for years) so I went in with trepidation.
