I have been going to the Village Salon for about 10 years and panic when I need a hair cut and cant get in. So do book in advance. I have found everyone to be friendly and helpful and they dont "push" products at you afterwards. Is the place pricey- yes, but worth the money and they do seem to have the latest products and techniques and best of all I trust Karen the owners judgement!

I was totally unhappy with the service at village hair salon!! First of all I could tell the hairstylist who did my hair was very fairly new in the field. When she gave me a consultation before the color process I asked her if she could show me their swatch book so I pick out the color I want. She says no I'll show you magazines and you can pick out a color from there. I found that to be very weird, why would she want to show me a swatch book that's what they're for!!!! She proceeds to show me these magazines that were outdated, so obviously I couldn't pick a color from there. I show her a picture I saved on my phone of a hair color she seemed to understand what I wanted, so she walks away to mix the color. Then comes back with one part of the swatch book and tells me " you may have to come back to get the color you want because it's not going to lighten up much". Didn't make much sense to me, like I said I could tell she was new!! She puts the color on, then stayed in my hair for about an hour. Washes it off and tells me I need a toner. I said that's fine. Then she tells me, "I'm going to cut your hair first and someone else will put your toner on and blow-dry." In my mind I said to myself "how unprofessional is that!" As the stylist is cutting my hair I'm already hating the color and hating the hair cut! When my services were done, my hair looked orange!! The hair cut was disgusting and I felt everyone was so unprofessional!! I spoke to the manager and all he could offer was to readjust the color, but it would have to be days later. I told him it's an inconvenience for me. He didn't seem to care to listen to me so I basically just wasted my money at this salon. I will never return nor will I ever recommend this hair salon to anyone. Unless you want to play musical chairs?!

Wonderful! Diva Curl on! The staff was polite, friendly and seemed to get along (which is nice to see). The salon was clean and professional. Melissa was wonderful. Scary to try a new salon with my hair type. My african american curls were good when I arrived and great when I left. Most importantly she provided information and advice on the upkeep and how-tos on repeating that salon styling! Impressive - no need to drive to NYC for the same results.

I have been going to The Village Salon for about 2 years. Don't be afraid to try this one! Karen is the proprieter and is an excellent colorist and stylist. It is always the customer first. Homeade cookies and your choice of coffe, tea or

Christy was rude off the bat. When I checked in, I didn't realize she was the one standing behind the counter, so I waited for someone to get her. Instead of introducing herself, she stared at me for 10 seconds and said "sit down! I'll be there in a few." I apologized for not realizing it was her.

During the haircut she told me my eyebrows were "a mess," and asked if she could "show me something." I obliged and she proceeded to wax my eyebrows. Now, I'm not saying I didn't need it, but if she'd have asked I'd have been happy to pay for them. Instead, she shooed me out as another customer came in the door and yelled to the cashier - "she had a brow wax. Charge her for that too!"

Then she turned around one last time and told me to "book my next appointment now because I fill up quick." False. I booked this particular haircut the day before and had my pick of times - now I know why.

The haircut is decent, but the experience is enough to ensure I never return to the Village Salon.

Other people have had good experiences at this Salon but I would steer clear of Christy!

Great experience here. Wonderful cut & dry. So many products to choose from. Staff all warm & friendly. Appointment needed. Fees a little pricey, but worth the results.

Finally a place that knows what to do with those of us who have curly hair! Deva Curl products are the best, and they not only sell the products but follow the philosophy. After 27 years, finally someone gave me tips for styling my very curly hair that I could actually use.

Expensive, yes. For this area and the quality, they can get what they want. I haven't had this quality since I left SoCal and the haircuts were $45 ten years ago.
Anne is my colorist. She has a professional, competent, enjoyable way about her. I enjoyed my first visit and look forward to years of excellent care. From the top of my head to the foot massage machine, I walked out a more relaxed and handsome woman. I saw all ages, men and women, and they too were willing to pay the price.
Absolutely recommend!

I have been going to the Village Salon for almost two years for my haircuts. I always look forward to my visit. It is a very relaxing experience, the prices are fair, and the service is great.
