I have been to Salon DeSante Twice.. Both times, I felt like it did take a lot of time. I didn't really mind since I didn't have anything else to do. The first tie I had Aileen. She was great did everything I wanted and my hair looked fabulous. My only complaint would be that I feel their color faded much quicker then other salons i had been to. The second time i went, Aileen was booked so I had an appointment with Lisa. I explained the cut that I wanted and she did a beautiful job. I showed her a picture of the highlights I wanted. That is where I was dissatisfied. While the highlights looked good, I wanted a lot of highlights around my face and really there were no more there then in the rest of my hair. I also got my eyebrows waxed and while they cleaned them up very well they really did not give me much or an arch. I do feel they are on the high side when it comes to prices.

On 8/20 someone form the salon called me about my appointment on Friday @ 6;30PM ask me to be on time because I was last appointment of the day. Arrived at salon at 6:20 PM. At 6:50 PM girl come out to tell me she would be taking me back to shampoo my hair. i told her no I had a appointment for 6:30 Pm not 7:00 PM and I walked out of salon. as of today Monday 8/24 no one from the salon has called me about the problem. I am going to find other salon. If you told me not to be late you would think i would have be done by 7PM not just getting started. I never was treated like this before.

My hairdresser of 25 years retired about three years ago. I am a Hi-Light Lo-Light. I tried several hairdressers many of which proved to be a disaster.\r
None of them would show me a color chart because they ""knew what I wanted"". I would ask and they would say ""Don't worry about it. I know what you want."" I was a different color every month. One hairdresser in center city kept doing my roots and the color would not take. My roots would wash out after the first shampoo.\r
Some would do the base color and tell me to come back next month for the highlight. I was ready to pack it in. Then I found the De Sante Salon in Springfield and then I found ""Bali"" the stylist!\r
\r
Talk about a professional salon and talk about a professional hairstylist. WOW! Bali actually sat down with me for 20 minutes showed me swatches and charts and decided to ""start from scratch""\r
\r
I came out of there looking like a model and all in just a few hours.\r
\r
The professialism of both the salon and the employees is unmatched.

I was looking for a new place to get my hair done because I have been unsuccessful in finding a hair stylist who can manage my extremely think and frizzy hair so i decided to try Salon DeSante. I had an appointment with one of the stylist Lisa Sharkey and told her what I wanted done. She listened to everyword I said and knew exactly how to tackle my hair and give me exactly what I wanted. When she was finished cutting and styling my hair I couldn't belive how good my hair looked, I have never ever walked out of a salon and loved the way my hair looked, I always had to go home and restyle my hair to my liking. If anyone is looking to get a great haircut in a great enviroment I would defintly recommend going to Salon DeSante, and when you go ask to have Lisa Sharkey be your stylist becuase she does an awsome job.

A friend who has been going to Salon DeSante told me about Dina and what a good job she does at doing eyebrowns. I went 3 times so far and have been overly pleased with her & the results. I am 29 and have been getting my eyeborws waxed for 14 years. Dina said I needed eyebrow rehab and I did. Now they are defined and shape my face so well. Dina listens to what you want and gives her expert advice. She makes me feel so comfortable and explains what she is gong to do b/f proceeding with it. I am very particular & highly recommend you look into getting a new eyebrow artist.

Pros: It's private & so relaxing. Reasonable price.

Cons: The rude blonde receptionist.

I first went to the salon in 2003 with a wedding party. I was pleased with the service. Since then I continue to go to the salon despite the fact that I live in San Diego, 3,000 away! Whenever I get back to PA I always make sure I have an appointment with Frank. There is often a wait, but once you are in the chair you understand why you are waiting.....Frank is very particular and wants to make sure he did a good job and that you look good. He takes pride in his work!

Frank has been my hair consultant and stylist for nearly 4 yrs. I have been to many salons in both Pa and southern NJ and this is the best one I have ever been to in 18 yrs. It's the best due to the constant customer service which has never changed in as many visits. Coming from the customer service industry this is extremely important to me and it shows with Frank's extraordinary concern for every customer. No matter how long his day has been or how late it seems to be the entire team at Salon Desante takes the time to make sure that every last detail of your needs are taken care of. The hair shampoo accompanied by the best head and shoulder massage you'll ever have is with Frank's assistant, Erik. This salon is full service and for everyone's needs. Many salon's are focused on one type of client. My husband and I both enjoy the calm and relaxing atmosphere, which is always busy but, you'd never know it with the customer service they have for everyone. \r

I found Salon DeSante through the ""Best of"" guide on Citysearch. I wanted to find a new colorist to help me heal my platinum blonde hair and hopefully get it to grow after some major hair color damage. I called Salon DeSante and requested Frank. It was the best decision I ever made for my hair! Frank has singlehandedly healed my hair and it's actually growing again. I have no breakage and the color is exactly how I like it... not brassy, just a nice light wheat color. If you like your hair light and have had damage in the past, you have to check out Salon DeSante. Frank has made my fine hair stronger and healthier while keeping it as light as I like. \r
\r
The salon experience itself is also top notch. Having spent most of the past 15 years or so getting my hair done in Center City, I wondered if a Delaware County salon could measure up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that yes, they definitely could! Everyone at Salon DeSante is customer service oriented and the staff makes an effort to make every person comfortable and even learn every clients' name. They are quick to hang your coat, offer you a cold beverage or coffee. I even was escorted to my car in the rain when I forgot my umbrella!\r
\r
I am getting married in a few months and I plan to post more reviews on the salon's other treatments! So far though, my experience with the salon has been excellent.\r
\r
Thanks Frank!!!

Pros: cutting edge color techniques, eager to please staff

Franky DeSante has been my stylist for over 7 years and I will never go anyone else! I live in South NJ and would travel anywhere for Franky! He has built a team of dedicated and knowledgeable professionals. I put my complete trust in Franky and have NEVER been disappointed. His talent and ability is unmatched and always cutting edge. I have never left disappointed or wanting something different; he always does an outstanding job. And transplants what I am looking for into the perfect look! In some of the other reviews a few people mentioned that they had to wait and my response is that any wait is always well worth it and the very friendly and accommodating staff makes you feel welcomed and completely taken care of the entire time. My entire family goes to Salon DeSante and we will never go anyone else! I HIGHLY recommend trying Salon DeSante if you have not and guarantee that you will never go anyone else either!

I have been going to Salon DeSante with my son for a number of years. The staff has always been professional and friendly, especially making sure we are both comfortable. Bobby is our hairstylist but I would be comfortable going to any one there. Our hair always looks great when we leave. I?ve gotten incredible shampoos and they have even gotten my son to try them. He loves getting his hair washed now. I would highly recommend Salon DeSante for their professional, talented and courteous service. Give them a try; I?m sure you will love it.

I am from Philadelphia and Frankie has been doing my hair from over 15 years but I moved to CA a few years ago and I can?t find anyone who comes to close to Frankie. I make it home every couple months and the first thing I do is make an appointment to have Frankie cut and color my hair. He always takes his time to sit down with me and listen to my latest wishes. We review color swatches and the latest hair cutting techniques that he learned in Europe from his latest trip - I love catching him when he first comes back Europe; he?s always so excited and motivated. I always tell him, ?Do whatever you want Frankie, I trust you?. \r
\r
I love going to Salon DeSante, the atmosphere is relaxing and I always leave feeling energized and beautiful! My hair feels great and looks so healthy. \r
\r
Thank you so much Frankie see you soon!!\r

I tried this salon quite a few times. Each time I had to wait very long, even though I had an appointment. And when I finally was in the chair, Frank was doing 5 other things at the same time, prolongning my cut. I had grown out my hair and brought pictures with me of my new cut, front, side and back - and when I left there - the cut was nothing like the picture. And it took over 2 hours sitting in the chair. The staff needs to listen more, keep on time with their appointments, and not schedule 2 or 3 people at the same time.

I have been going to Salon DeSante for 15+ years now. In those 15 years I can honestly say I have NEVER been unhappy with services provided. I give Frank a direction and let his creative talents take over. I was scared the first time I went to the salon because I had other stylists chop my hair off when I ask for a trim, NOT HERE! They listened from day 1 my fear about cutting my length and what I wanted from my visit. There is NO one I trust more than Frank when cutting and coloring my very long hair. When Frank is away at hair shows Lisa handles my cuts and colors and again never had a complaint. You feel like you are family and very special with their one on one service. The salon was around the corner from my house when I started going there when they moved I had to travel to see them but well worth the ride. \r

Thank you to a wonderful group of stylists. Your Salon is the BEST!!!!!\r

Pros: Everything about the salon

Cons: parking (same parking lot as outback steakhouse)

I am a hairdresser, and I usually cut my own hair. (I dont work in a salon because I stay home with my children.) I hadn't had someone else cut my hair in over two years. I had been growing it out and only trimming it. It was finally getting long, and it needed a good trim and clean up. I decided to go to the salon. Normally, I go to Oggi in Philadelphia for a good cut because I could never find a good hairstylist out in the burbs where I live. I have a four year old and a 7 month old, so I decided to go to Salon Desante...supposedly a high end, professional salon. Well, I was told Lisa Sharkey was an excellent hairdresser. This is an incorrect statement. She is horrible. I only wanted to clean up my hair, so I wanted about one inch off all around. She took off about four inches off the sides of my hair and left the back long. When I asked her why the back was long and the sides were short, she said she was framing my face. HA! I have never seen angles go all the way to the back of someones head! It was absolutely horrible! She kept trying to puch the long hair in the back over my shoulders to make it look ok. I told her I did not like it at all and now she had to cut four inches off the back so it was even with the sides. I didnt want to seem too angry because I didnt want her to get nervous or upset and completely screw up my hair. Well, I basically had to walk her through the haircut, and I still ended up with an uneven, unattractive hairstyle. AND-it was four inches shorter than I wanted it to be. Remember, I had finally grown out my hair!! I would have been much better off cutting it myself. Also, I told her I wear my hair flat, and she could not get it flat - Even with a flat iron. It is not hard to use a flat iron, but she sure had trouble using it. A hairdresser this bad should not be charging $60 for her services. On a better note, the shampoo assistant, who never told me his name and spoke too soft for me to hear him, gave me an incredible shampoo.

Pros: Good Shampoo

Cons: Horrible Horrible Cut

I went to get a hair cut from Frank and let him know very clearly that I only wanted him to cut off an inch from my hair. I left the salon about 8 inches shorter. He seemed to either completely ignore or forget what I told him I wanted. He also kept me waiting for 45 minutes before the cut and spent most of the time discussing salon business with the other employees. He was very courteous, but that really didn't make up for totally failing to listen to what I'd asked for.

I travel 3,000 miles (from San Francisco, CA) every chance I get simply to have my hair done by the fantabulous staff of Salon DeSante. Frank and his team have changed my concept of what a salon should offer its clients. Cool, sophisticated, fresh and fun, Salon DeSante has never failed me (a girl who did not get her hair cut for 7 years out of fear of foul play!!!) in stepping up my style, and making me feel great about who I am through how I look. I am a strong and versatile woman, ready to take on whatever life throws my way. Much love!!!

I am responding to the grossly overexaggerated and vicious review sent in June about Salon DeSante. I have been a client of Salon De Sante for over 5 years. I have never been intimidated or pressured to have anything done to my hair or to buy product. Their prices are comparable to the area salons. Because I have multiple processes to my hair during a visit, it can take time. So, instead of complaining I bring a book to read or relax and watch Frank's staff do their thing. I drastically change my hair color and style every year. Only once did I end up with a color I wasn't fond of (I picked it out!). Frank stayed and worked with my hair until I was absolutely satisfied (no additional charge). I always receive compliments about how fresh, sharp and natural looking my hair looks. I have referred family members, friends, clients (both men and women) to Salon De Sante. They all found Frank and his staff to be professional, talented and courteous. I will continue to be a client who wholeheartedly recommends others to go to Frank.

I have never been intimidated or pressured to have anything done to my hair or to buy product. Their prices are comparable to the area salons. Because I have multiple processes to my hair during a visit, it can take time. So, instead of complaining I bring a book to read or relax and watch Frank's staff do their thing. I drastically change my hair color and style every year. Only once did I end up with a color I wasn't fond of (I picked it out!). Frank stayed and worked with my hair until I was absolutely satisfied (no additional charge). I always receive compliments about how fresh, sharp and natural looking my hair looks. I have referred family members, friends, clients (both men and women) to Salon De Sante. They all found Frank and his staff to be professional, talented and courteous. I will continue to be a client who wholeheartedly recommends others to go to Frank.

.

I am a new client at Salon DeSante and now, a permanent one. Hair color is one of the few things you can change about yourself to make you feel ""new"" and ""revived"" (short of plastic surgery, that is, but who can do that every 6-8 weeks?!)). So, when I go to a salon, I want to know that I am going to leave feeling just that. When I met with Frank DeSante and staff, it was an experience I had never had before. Some stylists and colorists cut and color hair based on what THEY feel like doing, not necessarily what is best for the client. Frank spent a lot of time with me finding out my likes and dislikes, my concerns, and most importantly, my comfort level with trying certain colors and cuts. Not to mention, his staff, even those who aren't doing your hair, are there to accomodate your every need. Frank's assistant, Eric, even gives you a massage while washing your hair. I may go back weekly just to get my hair washed! And the fact that I am driving from NJ and the high cost of gas, that says alot! Needless to say, I walked out with the best cut , color and salon experience I have ever received. Frank is a man who has truly perfected his craft and yet, impressively, continues to educate himself to stay at the top of his game.

Pros: Expertise

Cons: Doesn't have a 3rd salon in NJ!!!!

I have been a client of Frank DeSante's for 20 + years and am continually amazed at his skill and talent in coloring & cutting. Each time I sit in his chair he treats me as if I were a new client. Asking me questions about my hair, how I feel about it, what I liked about the previous color, and so on. He never assumes anything and is always attentive and creative to my likes and dislikes. His staff are also just as attentive making you feel as though you've truly escaped the day and ended up in an atmosphere of relaxation. I was unable to go to Frank for a few years as I moved out of the area, but recently realized that no one out there can give me the color and cut that Frank can. The products that he uses are exceptional and he is very knowledgable on all of them. I'm always impressed with him and his staff as they are comfortable enough to consult with one another when suggesting new products to customers. To know the amount of time he spends each year studying around the world to perfect his skill is priceless! Frank's assistant Eric gives the most amazing massage when he washes your hair! The time he spends on you just adds to the whole experience. Frank, His Staff and the Salon are worth the $ and the distance for their services. \r
\r
For anyone out there that has a negative remark about this Salon, go ahead and try somewhere else; I can guarantee you, YOU""LL BE BACK! \r

I have been a client of Salon DeSante for some years now and I always have people asking where i get my hair cut and colored. So I decided to share my comments and experience at Salon DeSante. I am always amazed with the creative cuts and coloring. Frankie the proprietor as well as my stylist is a perfectionist when it comes to color so don't expect to be rushed. He carefully consults with his clients. He always lets me know of new styles he has learned from his travels on continuing education in hair and color, and his staff is professionally trained as well. I also appreciate the friendly and inviting atmosphere. Kudos to Salon DeSante and staff. I give it five out of five stars! Thanks Frankie! Continue on! Tina Scavetti I also would like to make a comment below about and to ginat282\r
I also would like to make a comment to ginat282 I was in Salon the day you were there you are nothing but a miserable liar an a very arrogant ,argumenative, no class, person ..I think you need a attuide ajustment and possibly medication .

I have been a client of Salon DeSante for 3 years, and I highly recommend this salon. Frank DeSante is the epitome of talent & professionalism; he treats every client like a queen.

Salon Desante is the best place I EVER had my hair cut and color done. I have curly hair and FINALLY I found someone who can cut and color it. Frank Desante is wonderful. He listens to what you have to say and what you want. He will also give some suggestions, but he never forces his opinion on you. He has a great eye for hair color. You can say goodbye to ""same old, same old"" hair color. Unless that's what you want?( How boring! ) The staff at Salon Desante is great, too. They are very nice and try help in any way possible. Thanks to Frank and his staff, you can get center city Philly & New York City salon quality(and better) in the ""burbs!""

I absolutely love this salon!! After a really bad experience a few years ago with another salon, I was ready to branch out. I arrived ten minutes early for my appt with Lisa and was taken back exactly on time. She spent a good bit of time listening and talking to me about what I wanted and why I was nervous and made me feel completely at ease. Yes, I agree with some of the posts that is takes them a while if you are getting a cut and color, but it was so relaxing and so worth the wait. I have never had a better experience in my life, and have already scheduled my next appointment with Lisa. Well worth the time and money.

Based on the first few reviews of this salon, I was excited to get an appointment the next afternoon since it is closer to my home than my old salon. But I should've read ALL the reviews b'c they tell the same story I'm telling here. I was left waiting from the moment I walked in the door until the moment I left FOUR HOURS later. Asking me if I'm comfortable 400 times isn't the same as finishing my hair before taking another client and ignoring me while tending to other clients. I was in such a rush to get out of there that I didn't notice until I got out in the daylight that the color wasn't even close to what I asked for. I can't believe a suburban salon charged me $200 to look almost exactly the same as when I came in & pressured me into buying high-priced products that aren't even working! For that kind of money, I saw another Best-of-Philly master stylist at a Best-of-Philly spa & salon, was in and out within 2 hours, and was thrilled with my hair! I shouldn't have messed with a good thing. I was so upset I called the next day and made an appointment to have it fixed the next evening. I thought it looked better until I saw it in the morning. In the light of day my coworker pointed out the huge gaps between highlights, the absence of highlights in the back of my head, and orangeish inconsistent color. I won't bother trying to have it fixed a third time. I am horrified that this happened twice already, but even more horrified that I trusted the positive reviews about this salon. I'm going back to my high-priced Best-of-Philly salon where I know I'll get what I pay for. Save your time and your money!!!!!!!!

After I had moved from Manhattan last year I had a hard time figuring out what beauty/spa was good in the Philly area. For the past year plus I would take the train into NYC every month or two and pay top dollar for my hair. I wanted to find something in the Philly area, but I am extremely picky and was hesitant to take a ""chance."" I spent a lot of time researching salons and heard about Salon Desante. I am glad I gave it a chance because I thought Lisa did a fantastic job on my hair color!\r
\r
I Went back a second time to have my color done, and once again Lisa did an excellent job. Also- the staff is really nice.\r

This Review is ALSO in response to ""ginaat282"" Gina, after reading your review I have to agree with something you said - YOU ARE PARINOID!!!! And I believe you to be a LIAR!!!!!!\r
I worked directly with Frank for over five years and I have been a close friend of his for 15 years. I know there is no way in on earth that you asked anyone in Salon DeSante - or anywhere else for that matter about Frank and got a negative response. Frank DeSante is nothing less than a true gentleman and you would be lucky if even glanced in your direction! How dare you lie about Frank in a public forum like this- if you were so damn ""uncomfortable"" why didn't you say something to him? Why go to a website like a coward and vilify this man? Was Frank really ""inappropriate"" or is that Frank really didn?t pay any attention to you besides doing your hair? Maybe you're not only paranoid and a liar but you are also desperate and pathetic?! How does that feel Gina? Not too good uh? See, it?s polite or appropriate to go on a website and suggest that someone was disrespectful when they weren?t. Truth be told?Frank is respectful, professional, generous, and an extremely kind man and he is one of kind ? a dying breed to be exact. Don?t you think it?s strange that you are the ONLY person to speak negatively about Frank?s personal character? And there are now four other people defending his character? If Frank was the inappropriate person you claim him to be, how is it that people (mostly women) sit and wait for him to do their hair? If Frank is guilty of anything it?s being too kind to someone like yourself.\r
Why don?t you go back to whatever chop-shop you came from and never speak of Frank DeSante again?unless it is to apologize.\r

I am responding to ginat also. I have known Frankie since he was in the 6th grade. He was cutting my hair in his garage long before he became the master you all know. He cuts my wife's hair and does my two daughter's hair too and they all adore him and certainly believe he is worth the wait. He is a true gentleman and if he was looking it was because perfection is his goal and he wants all the pieces to fit. It is so wrong to speculate on what he was thinking or why he was looking. Frank again is a TRUE GENTLEMAN nothing less would be acceptable to him. \r

Frank is a master of his craft and a true gentleman and good things come to those who wait.

I've been getting my hair done by Frankie for over 15 years and I drive from Voorhees, New Jersey . Frankie is a very professional and respectable individual. I can't believe that a person like yourself can be so miserable to want to try and destroy this mans reputation. If anyone like myself know's Frankie, know's he would never disrespect anyone, knor make inappropriate comments to anyone especially his clients. Frankie is a very talented and unique person. It is clearly obvious that you have a personal vendetta against him so, my advice to you is ""get over it and move on"" and by the way, anyone who reads reviews like yours know those accusations are false so, why dont you stop waisting your time energy trying to ruin Frankie's well known successful business and put some of that energy you have in changing your life and making yourself a happy person.

I recently moved up here from Miami and have been looking for a talented stylist in the Philadelphia area to help keep my hair looking its best. I read all of the positive reviews on Salon DeSante and decided to give it a shot. From the moment you walk in, you feel welcomed and taken care of. The staff is extremely attentive and considerate. The owner, Frank, took care of me and I have to say, I haven't been as pleased with my hair in a very long time. He took the time to listen to me and then make suggestions that would work with my personality and lifestyle. He is a true artist that takes his time and really listens to make sure you walk out a happy customer. Well, I did and will be back because of his ability to create beautifully colored and cut hair. He is meticulous and knows his trade very well. I won't trust my hair to anyone else now that I have found him. If you decide to give Salon DeSante a chance, I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Cons: Nothing

I can't even imagine going anywhere else! I have been a client of Frank DeSante for fifteen years. I work in a salon in New Jersey and still travel 31 miles each way for Frank. His knowledge and expertise in color are worth the distance and I always leave there with the latest cut from Paris. I have never left there feeling anything but fabulous. Something you can never find in New Jersey. I always receive so many compliments on my cut and color. Frank is a firm believer in consistantly educating himself and his staff to be"" the best"" at what they do, and they are. They always go above and beyond and will accomodate anything you wish. The salon is very professional but has a casually relaxed atmosphere. I always feel like I'm right at home. The music is great and if you're lucky you might even get to hear a few notes from Frank himself.

I've gotten my hair cut and colored there four times. Great cut! Fabulous color! They really listen and suggest and explain...... BUT all four times I've had to wait a ridiculous amount of time. It makes me feel like they know how good they are so they expect people to put up with long waits. It's definately a place to go only if you have nothing else to do in your life.

I have been a faithful customer of Salon DeSante for 3 years now and I find the comments of ?msmgw? to be unfair, untrue, misleading and very juvenile. My personal experiences at Salon DeSante have been nothing but exceptional and I have found my stylist to communicate well, deliver what I want, found the customer service to be unsurpassed and the prices are reasonable. Judging from the comments of ?msmgw? this seems to be a fruitless, personal attack on Frank and his salon (FYI?This is not a place to display personal grievances. ) Let me ask you something? Did you communicate with your stylist if you were unsatisfied with the service? And if you were unsatisfied with the so-called lack of cleanliness, why did you stay? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.... Apparently you didn't communicate with your stylist if you had to use this forum as a way of communication.

Whom ever wrote the last review about Salon Desante must of been dreaming. I mean that in a bad way. The Salon is great. The staff is unbelievable. Courteous, friendly, willing to go that extra mile. The salon staff does not write their own reviews. I have been a customer for 2 years and have never been treated with more respect than I have been treated at Salon Desante. I used to go to another Salon in Ridley for years. When my regular stylist was not available to do my hairone time, another one was appointed to me. She ruined my hair. I paid $100 that day, asked to come in the next day to have it corrected, and was charged by the owner another $100!!! I left after that and never looked back. Frank, who is my stylist @ Salon DeSante wants you to look and feel your best before walking out of there and I never leave unsatisfied. He is a true talent as well as the rest of the stylists there. Frank goes above and beyond and it shows when you look in the mirror. The staff makes you feel special and they seem like one, big happy family. I say shame on you whoever wrote the last review. You obviously do not know what you are talking about and you are trying your darnest to give them a bad name. Well, you did not succeed. Salon DeSante is the best and I would recommend them to anyone and THAT is the truth!!!

The manicurist at Salon DeSante is unbelievable. The experiance takes all your stresses away and calms your nerves. Not to mention the service of the rest of the salon employees who are always making sure you are comfortable with something to drink or in need of anything else. The manicure is just the icing on the cake if you decide to get a pedicure as well. The pedicure includes a wonderful foot massage and the most relaxing foot soak. My mom just recently did a walk and her feet were cracked so the pedicurist took an extra step of wrapping her feet and warming them to let the lotion soak in better. When you recieve a manicure while your nails are drying the manicurist massages your shoulders. It is to die for, the whole experiance!!!

I had a wonderful experience at Salon Desante. Not only were they professional, courteous and helpful, they simply made my experience pleasant. They took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted and incorporated what they knew with my idea. My hair cut and color came out better than I had ever expected. The atmosphere is very relaxing as you may feel like you walked into an LA salon. I will never go anywhere else for my hair again.

You can't imagine the number of compliments I recieve after Frank, the owner, cuts and colors my hair!!! I rarely come in knowing what I want and still he always gets it just right! And not only that, I feel confident, beautiful, and appreciated when I leave! Many of the same employees have been there since they opened and it is nice to have that family business kind of feel in a salon. Every one of their ultra stylish employees are courteous, professional, and friendly. Any kind of wait is worth it considering the personal attention given to every customer and the awesome way you'll look and feel when you leave!

I loved this salon. I have been bouncing around for years getting my hair cut and colored by different people. I can honestly say this is the happiest I have been to date. I love my auburn hair with my blonde highlights. Maria was nothing but helpful and her assistant Lauren was the same. They both were friendly and courteous. Never once did I feel unconfortable talking about what I wanted to have done. They both knew exactly what they were talking about as well. Maria is very passionate about her trade and really enjoys what she does. I can honestly say that I will be going back there and cant wait for another visit! Oh and by the way I was taken right away, as soon as I walked in the door my hair was started.

Pros: Friendly, Knowledgable, Curtious

Cons: none I can think of

Sad to say this, but I walked out of the salon because once again I had to wait for a half hour after my scheduled appointment! My stylist, who I've been with for six years, never came out to apologize and the assistant lied about her finishing up. Clients came in after me and were going back for their haircuts before me. I've always received great cuts but I do not have time to wait around, what is the sense in making an appointment?! I feel that my business and loyalty was not appreciated so now I will find a salon that does appreciate my business!

I recently visited Salon Desante where I had a hair cut, low lights, and highlights. I have been visiting salons to have my hair done since I was 15 years old and I must say that I have never been treated with more courtesy and respect as I did the day I walked into that salon. My appointment was nearly on time and the reception staff was more than pleasent and ready to accomodate my every need. From a refreshment to a huge magazine library. When I met with my stylist Frank, I was so impressed with his knowlege of hair fashion and appreciated so much the passion he had regarding his trade. I learned he has studied hair in Paris, Italy , and New York and I liked the fact that he was up to date with all the trends, products and then some. His staff was the same way. Very passionate and you could just tell that Frank, the salon owner instilled those passions in them. I was so nervous to get 4 inches taken off my hair and to try something different. I just had a baby and was feeling less than glamorous and I needed a change. Frank provided that for me. He listened to me and my needs and knew EXACTLY what I wanted. Needless to say, I am that glamorous new mom that wanted and thought i could be. I walked in there drab, and left looking FAB!!!! I have never been happier and felt more beautiful. Take it from me, you will not be dissaponnted!

I have had experiences at various salons where I would tell them what I wanted and they acted like they were listening but I would walk out very disappointed and dissatisfied. At Salon DeSante they actually listened to what I said and I finally got the hair style that I wanted! They were even so helpful with explaining how to style my hair in different ways based on the hair cut Frank had given me.\r
Across the board Salon DeSante is by far the best Salon I have been to. The receptionist is extremely attentive and I had just sat down after checking in and she asked if wanted a beverage and engaged in conversation with the waiting clients. I felt like I was walking into a family business whos employees had known me for years.\r
They now have a regular customer with me.
