Excellent service at the salon! Brittany treated me professionally and created a style and color that I am in love with! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and colleagues. And since I'm a SAS professional, I got an extra discount, I will definitely be back.

Jalpa is awesome. I saw her for a haircut and color yesterday and I love it. I have had a lot of bad haircuts so I spent a lot of time talking with her beforehand and she had excellent ideas and was extremely patient while helping me decide what to do with my short but growing out hair. Her haircut is great, definitely as good as some of the master stylists I have been to at top NY salons in the past.

I highly recommend her, she takes her time to really make sure the cut is perfectly even (unlike other local places I have been to) and did exactly what I asked for with my highlights. She is super easy to work with and talk to.

Thanks!

Pros: cut and color are great

I usually use Paige as my main stylist, but when I had to re-schedule at the last minute the only person available was Jalpa. She did a great job! I??m usually a little apprehensive about that sort of thing, but she recognized me from previous visits and really listened to what I wanted. Now I know I am safe to make appointments with other stylists in the future when last-minute schedule conflicts come up!

I have to say getting my hair done sometimes really stresses me out and admit that I am very indescisive and can be difficult to please. However, I had one of the best experiences at Hair Color Experts in Cary recently. From the minute I walk in the staff was so inviting. Drew was my stylist, he made me feel comfortable and took the time to really find out what i wanted and we discussed what would be the best look for me.
I was nervous ,at first ,but I needed something different. He recomended that I go a little lighter. Something I hadn't thought of. I absolutley love the color he choose for my hair. Fantastic! I left the salon feeling so good about the way I looked which we ladies know, when youre hair looks good , you feel great . My husband even said, "whatever you had done to your hair, i like it" thats about as close to a compliment as i could ever hope for out of him. Thank you Drew for working your magic on my hair. He is the expert!

I recently tried HairColorXperts because I moved and it was closer since my former salon was all the way in North Raleigh. I liked my cut so much that I stopped making appointments with my old stylist and have officially switched to HairColorXperts permanently!

I went to this location for the first time last week and loved it! I was made comfortable and offered refreshments while Paige, the stylist who helped me, talked about what I wanted to do as far as a cut and color. I had a really great time and left VERY satisfied with the results! I??ll be back!

I've been going to Haircolorxperts for years. Each time I go, I've had a different hair stylist. A few times with the same one. I would tell them what color I would like my hair dyed and even show them pictures. They would never get it right. One time I told the hairstylist I want my hair dyed and highlighted the same way I had it last time. They are supposed to write it down and keep it in a folder or computer in the back. The hairstylist said ok and dyed and highlighted my hair. When she started blow drying it I realized this was not the color I had last time. I asked her about it and she said "The hairstylist you had last time didn't write anything down for you so I just put some colors together". It was awful she had to then re-dye my hair. Instead of telling me there was no past file of my hair color she made it up.

This was the worst experience I've had at Haircolorxperts. I went in to get my hair dyed. I told the hairstylst I want my hair blonde just with more brown highlights nothing fancy or extreme. She had a headache that night and instead of rescheduling she stayed to dye my hair. Her mom ended up coming to pick her up. Long story short she did the worst dye I've ever seen. I looked like Rainbow Bright. My hair had different chunks of colors all throughout it. I went back the next day and another hairstylist fixed my hair for free. I told her how I wanted it. She dyed my hair and it was so dark with so little blonde highlights going through that I looked like the mother on Addam's Family. It was awful. I went back the next day to another hairstylist who tried to fix my hair without having it fall off from dying it too much. The manager even helped her. It looked better when I left the place the third time, but it still wasn't what I wanted and having to keep going back and ruining my hair was not worth it.

Don't be fooled by the name of the store. They aren't experts. I can give you plenty more stories of how they've messed up my hair and others.

I recently moved to NC and needed to find a new stylist ASAP. I happened to drive by Haircolorxperts and made an appointment after looking them up online. Everyone there was super friendly, and the girl who cut my hair was very attentive and talked to me for several minutes before my cut as well as multiple times throughout to make sure I was getting what I wanted. I will definitely be back on a regular basis!

I made the mistake of letting a close friend mess with my hair and it did not go well. Hannah at Haircolorxperts sympathized and took very good care of me. I never thought I wanted short hair but having no choice in the matter I simply had to cut it all off. It looks great! I think I may keep it short from now on, and only let Hannah touch it of course.

I recently visited these guys for the first time and Drew did a fantastic job! I brought a picture of my desired cut and color, and was very pleased with the outcome. Not only did it come out exactly how I pictured it, but it looks so fresh and modern! I have since received many complements on my new ??do? and have referred all of them to HairColorXperts.

I have had nothing but great experiences with Jalpa. I would highly recommend her!

Hated working there, clientele were all snobs. Never made any$$$ the entire 8 months I worked here. The drive to this desolate area to service snobby clients, round trip was about 40 miles a day. Clients were always so busy on there cell phones it would throw u off schedule and leave u running behind for the next client complaining about the wait, while they made me wait for them to finish there phone call. Totally commission only, never got paid for any of the "mandatory" meetings or so called training classes. Just a total waist of my time and savings trying to work and build a clientele.

I moved here recently from NY and asked my neighbor who cuts/colors her hair because it always looked so good. She suggested I make an appointment with Michele Wright at Haircolorxperts at the Arboretum in Cary.

I have always had a problem with fine, limp hair and was never able to achieve a 'natural' style. Michele listened to my concerns and discussed my current routine before she began to work. When she was done, I was thrilled! I couldnt believe that after all these years, someone finally got it right! Even my husband, who doesnt notice anything, was impressed with her work. I was so pleased with her that I made an appointment for color before I left the salon. I went back a week later and was equally impressed with the color Michele applied.

I couldnt thank Michele enough for doing such a wonderful job and making me feel really good about my hair. If you are from the tri state area and are looking for an expert in the field, Michele is the girl you want to make an appointment with!

This place is awful! I would give it a negative star if it were available. The color was horrible, nothing like we discussed before the color process. The color process completely changed the texture of my hair. The worst hair experience I have ever had. Do yourself a favor and never go here! Oh yeah, and the whole thing cost me $250. Did I mention how horrible this place is???

This salon is great! The receptionists were warm and friendly,and offered me coffee, while I was waiting.
Marlo was my stylist, from the moment I sat in her chair I felt comfortable. I felt like she really listened to my likes and dislikes about my hair. She gave me a great haircut and the most beautiful color! I have never been so happy with my hair until now! She even took the time to show me how to style my new haircut! All I can say is WOW! You definetly have to give this salon a try, I promise you will not be sorry!

I cannot stress how different my visit with Marlo was. I came this site after my visit to let everyone know how pleased I was with the salon and my stylist Marlo. We spent 15 min just talking she was very educated and knew her stuff. Never in the 25 years that I have been coloring my hair has someone on my first visit got it perfect.I also received highlights and low lights. I was also told if I have any issues I should give her a call. I will not have to do that because it was such a great cut and color, even the products I purchased were dead on perfect for my hair. Sounds to me like you may have been a little harsh on her. I highly recomend Marlo and will continue to visit Haircolorxperts.

I don't usually write reviews, but I felt that this place deserved it. I took a chance and found this place here on city search, I saw all the good reviews so I called made an appointment for cut and color. Everyone was nice from the moment I walked in. Paige was great at working with me to find out what exactly I wanted. She fixed my hair up nicely after months of home coloring. She made my hair look and feel great. My hair literally sparkles! I have never made my appointment for my next visit right then and there, but I did this time. I am looking forward to going back!

I just moved into the area and I'm very particular about the way my hair is cut. A lot of stylists don?t like me the second I walk in because I am very specific? but my stylist at haircolorxperts was so great in listening to exactly what I wanted! She listened to every word and didn?t let her ego get in the way (like some other stylists in this area). She did such a great job with my hair that I will never go to another salon again!

Tonya did my hair and I absolutely love it. She created a piece of art and it just happened to be on my head. The Cut is fabulous and the color to die for. She did the Brasilian Keritain treatment on me and I love love love it! So if you need a new look or just want to feel pampered then she is the girl for you! I have found my stylist forever!

The reviews are all true honestly! My hairdresser is so great and amazing at Haircolorxperts. She listens to exactly what I want and always makes sure she has it just right. Their service matches their product every time. I?m a student in Chapel Hill and obviously living on a student budget, but the final product I get makes it all worth the drive and the price! (which is very reasonable considering some other salons in the area).
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Went in for advice on how to color a bit of gray, and I wanted some highlights. Was talked into some lowlights. She put red on my hair and said it came out "FUNKY". Funky is not a good word when talking about someone's hair. She left me with wet hair in the bowl and put all kinds of toners, trying to calm down the red. My head started burning & stinging and I begged to have it washed outta my hair. I wanted to cry and scream, but there was no getting outta there, she proceed to dry it and beg to put highlights in it, I said, ENOUGH, I want to leave.
Please, don't go into this place if you want to look natural. My stylist and I did not have good communication about what I wanted. Now I am stuck with this hair and hopefully I can find another stylist that can help me get back to my natural color. It may take months to repair the damage done by this salon.
Yes, I was charged 150.00 for this insult. It will probaly take another 500.00 to repair the damage. I am already broke enough as it is.

I came to this web site several weeks ago to find a recommended salon to get my hair done, as I am new to the area. I read several reviews about Haircolor Xperts and decided to give it a try. I got my hair done by Renee' and found her to be very professional and friendly. I really liked what she did to my hair and rescheduled to see her in a couple of weeks.
The reception staff was very friendly and courteous. They even got me a cup of coffee that was wonderful. The salon assistant washed my hair and it was FANTASTIC she was very thourough and the massage was very relaxing. The atmosphere was friendly, you can tell that the other employees get along very well and really care about each other. It is important to me to visit a place that is not hostile and unwelcoming. I have a friend moving to the area and she will be going to visit this salon as well. I highly recomment this establishment.

A person with a name that starts with an R. who is suppose to be at a Director level and has over 14+ years of Haircut and Color experience did my hair about three weeks ago. She overprocessed the color while reading a novel and left me with my head in the wash bowl for 45+ minutes.. hello doesn't this cause a stroke. Then when she cut my hair she cut a big hole in it where she was just suppose to trim my layers. I will never ever go to this place ever again. The worst color, hair cut ever!!

A person with a name that starts with an R. who is suppose to be at a Director level and has over 14+ years of Haircut and Color experience did my hair about three weeks ago. She overprocessed the color while reading a novel and left me with my head in the wash bowl for 45+ minutes.. hello doesn't this cause a stroke. Then when she cut my hair she cut a big hole in it where she was just suppose to trim my layers. I will never ever go to this place ever again. The worst color, hair cut ever!!

Pros: none

Cons: Unprofessional, dirty atmosphere, inexperienced and lazy

What a refreshing salon. Its so nice to finally find a salon where they know what they are doing. I just moved here and thought I would still have to go back to N.Y to get a haircut and color. Andrew did such a FABULOUS cut and color I am thrilled. It really was the Best Blowout I have ever had. The whole staff really clicked with eachother. The manager even made me coffee!!! Trust me when I say you will enjoy your experience at Hair color xperts.

I went in for a trim and highlights and came out with 3 inches cut off my hair and you couldn't even tell I got highlights. All around my face you could see the roots. That's not the worst of it - I asked for layers around my face - side swipe bangs but not short. I came out with box bangs that were up to my eyes - the same length! It was awful. So I called and the manager said to come back in for a redo from a different stylist. Ashley Adkins spent her time with me and did her best to fix my hair - there was nothing she could do for my new unwanted short bangs but she did a great job on the cut and color. She was amazed herself at what an awful job the other stylist had done. Anyways - I paid $125 plus $10 tip by CC the first time around and then I tipped Ashley cash but left the $10 bill with the receptionist, Brooke Holland, because Ashley was already with another client. A couple day later I spoke to Ashley on Facebook telling her thank you for her time and to see if she got the cash tip I left her. She said she didn't (but that it was ok)!!! It's not ok - I know $10 isn't a lot but that's not the point. I am furious - I mean who knows how many other tips those hard working hair stylist have gotten stolen from them by someone who sits on her butt answering the phones?! I am so mad! I called the manager immediately to tell her this and I still haven't gotten a phone call back - 1 week later. Maybe the receptionist wasn't the one who stole the tip but someone did and I wanted the manager to know so that she could protect her stylist from this happening. She must not care because I haven't received a call back OR maybe the receptionist who I left the complaint with was the same girl who stole the tip and she never gave the manager the message? I wont stop writing bad reviews and telling people about this until Ashley gets taken care of and the person who stole the tip is fired.

Pros: Ashley the girl who tried to fix my hair is the only pro of the salon.

Cons: SOMEONE IS STEALING THE STYLISTS TIPS! THE MANAGER DOESN'T CARE!

I have lived in the Triangle for almost 3 years now. I have tried several local salons that are "Color Xperts" only to find that they are so not experts! A friend of mine has been seeing Renee for a few years and she kept telling me to give her a try. I went to see Renee last week and my friend was right, she is phenominal! I will never go to see anyone else. If you are new to the area (or just not happy with your current stylist) you should go see Renee, I promise you will not regret it.

I have been to so many place to get my hair done that I started to get scared of trying some place new. From the moment that I stepped into this salon I knew I would have a great experience. The people are down to earth and will go above and beyond to find something that you want to fit you.

I even take my boys who are 4 & 10 years old here. They love the girls and are pampered from head to toe and look like little gentlemen when they step out.

I have been to several salons in the area and this salon is the best!! I see Marlo, she is very knowledgeable about color and has a great eye for style , she will tell you what colors work best for your skin and eyes, and what haircut is best for your face shape! I have never been dissatisfied! Go and see for yourself!

I originally submitted this incorrectly for the Maynard Road location but am reposting because Lily's at the Arboretum... I've been looking for YEARS for someone that would do something I liked with my hair. Found one person but she moved to Charlotte after a few visits and I started my search again. With Lily at Hair Color Xperts I've found my new person and I'm very happy with my hair again! I asked for her opinion and she was very helpful with her ideas for the cut and color. Every morning when I do my hair now, I'm very happy with both the style and color. My daughter went to Lily first and liked her hair, so gave her a great recommendation. She was right and we both have been very pleased!

I got back from my second appointment since finding this salon and it was fantastic! I love the way my hair looks, from the color to the cut. When I got home, my husband was blown away and is also happy that I found this place. I had to write a review because I went there based on the glowing reviews that I read. Being new in town, I took a shot in the dark and was so happy to find light at the end of the hair style tunnel. The staff is very friendly as well, the atmosphere is pleasant and light. You really get quality service and products without feeling like you're in a "stuffy" place. Thanks so much Michele! She did a fabulous job I can't emphasise enough how much better I feel and look having a true professional take the time to get it just right. Highly recommended, and worth every penny. It's the only thing I splurge on and so glad I do!

I made an appointment with a stylist based on the reviews she had recieved on this site. When I arrived for my appointment I was told my appointment had been changed and it was now with Debra. At first I was a little concerned but was reassured that Debra was very good. They were right Debra sat down and listened to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable we sat a goal for my hair and she told me it might take a while to grow my hair into the shape I wanted she did what she could to get me going in the right direction and I am very happy with my hair and look foward to working with her to get my hair where I want it.

I have been having my hair done by Debra for about a year now and I could not be happier. I have very hard to color grey hair and it took me years to find someone to get the color right .I wear it dark but dont want it to look fake and Debra does such a good job making it look so natural .I am in front of people all the time with my job and feel like everyone is looking at my hair and since Debra has been doing it I know it looks great

If I were goint to rate just Lauren then she would have 5 stars for sure. The first time I moved here I came to NC I went here and had an okay experience. Then I found April and loved her, after helpless attempts to find her I decided to try one more time. Lauren was wonderful, I had wanted to cut my hair short for sometime, when I finally called for an appt. I was informed April had left, I was so upset, spent days trying to find her, I was not going to cut my hair off with someone new. I finally went to Lauren from the moment I walked in I knew I could do it and it would be fine. She was as excited as me and my hair turned out wonderful. My only downside was on Christmas Eve I came to have my hair cut with April and that went lovely but the manager there that day made me feel uncomfortable and tried to push products on me that I did not have the money for. However I can now say that I am glad that I gave it one more shot cause I will now follow Lauren wherever she works.

Recently I decided to take 12 inches off my hair and I absolutely love it! My experience with Renee is always relaxing and highly enjoyable. She cut my hair the exact way I wanted it and I am very pleased with how easily I can manage it with a newborn. I recommend everyone to go to Renee!

I wrote a review a while back but wanted to refresh it =) I have seen alot of post about April and her skill and Im sure she is great but Lauren will amaze you with what she can do!!! Not only can she do it but she knows what you want before you even say it!! And makes it look ten thousand times better than a regular old coloring. She will take the time to teach you how to do your hair...because I cant!... and she is so great to talk to so its like going to see a buddy! Go here for sure!! and ask for Lauren

First of all, I am a guy. April gave me a haircut in January when I wanted to try a new style and she was really, really good. Every bit as good as everyone on here claims. When I went back in March, they told me April didn't work there anymore and had left without any information. I had Renee do my cut instead, and it wasn't as good an experience. Something's fishy about April leaving without a word. I am hoping she's still in the area and has just started her own salon or something. I am trying to locate her, so if anybody has her info, please let me know.

I have seen several of the stylist at Haircolor Xperts, and I have been impressed by all of them. They have always been very professional and always knowledgeable and informative. I will never go anywhere else to get my hair done. They have not only met, but exceeded my expectations every time I have gone there. Renee' and Lauren are great! I highly recommend Haircolor Xperts! I have sent several of my friends there, and they have all said the same thing: We will never go anywhere else.
GO and give them a try.

I have had more than 3 appointments canceled because April was sick. I hate that she has health issues but it is very inconvenient for me to make an appointment and constantly reschedule or have to be canceled. She is a great beautician and a nice person but her problems should not be mine. I will never schedule another appointment with her and I probably will not ever go back to Hair Color Experts. It is very unprofessional. I don't understand how they can put up with it. It has to be a problem for more people than just me. I have read all of the reviews and don't believe for a minute that they are all true!!!!!

gave it five stars...cause i wanted this to be the first review people read...

i've been going to hair color experts for years. I used to love it. Then all of my favorite stylist left. From Julie to Renee, Lauren, Paige, etc. I ended up making an appointment with a masters level stylist- (Drew), which is 135 for highlights. Drew did a partial on me then charged me for a full. I walked out spending around 150 and went home to find that the back of
my head was barely highlighted. It usually takes over two hours to highlight and dry my hair. About an hour to place the foils and the color to lift. I was done in like an hour...total..blow dryed and everything. I had Angela fix my hair...she was amazing. I felt horrible she had to fix his mistakes. I even went to 3 other salons who said that the job was "half done" and looked more like it was done by a student, or "rushed through". When I heard Drew was made "artistic director" and has only been doing hair for two years...I left thesalon and went elsewhere. Since i've been going to hair color experts over 15 stylists have left...I never thought I would think so negatively of a salon. If I ever go back...it will be to the Cameron Village location. The Weston location has gone down hill by far. Just because I'm younger doesn't give a stylist a right to rush through doing highlights and think I wouldn't notice. I've been spending the money for years. Even his co-workers said he prob. rushed because I was younger and deemed "naive". Esp. someone who has been a client for years. The rest of the reviews...none of those sytlists are there anymore...and for a good reason. oh...and if the date is listed wrong I got my hair done only a few months ago there...some reason my review was posted as being written in 08...
