Regrettably, this was the worst experience I've ever had in a salon. My stylist did a great job with the color - there is no doubt about that. The interior of the salon is beautiful and Huong is a great colorist. They failed to mention additional charges for services that were quite costly and not nearly worth the service I received. I was expecting ~$100 bill and it was nearly double when I checked out. Highly recommend reconfirming prices upon arrival. I tried speaking with the Salon Manager whom was of no help, and the owner was away on a 6 month sabbatical and could not speak with her directly. I will never recommend this salon.

I have a summer home in Charleston and while shopping on King Street walked into Allure Salon. I was greeted by Jill who told me about all services that Allure had to offer. I just wanted my hair Blown and she introduced me to Ralph.

I wasn't very impressed with Allure Salon. My stylist was incredibly personable and the front desk was sweet. But my color faded after 3 weeks and my cut didn't help my thin hair. Even though, I had a groupon, it wasn't worth the money. I

Had a great experience with Megan.

I usually go to a salon in Mt. Pleasant, but the last time I was there my stylist kept checking the clock as if she couldn't wait to leave and she barely spoke to me. This was supposedly the "top"

I had someone at another Salon highlight my hair. ORANGE it was. Horrible. I refused to let them do anything else to it. They said they could fix it but NO WAY. I heard about what a great hairstylist Jimmy was. I went in very unhappy.

Amber is a true artist! When I go there I give her 1 or 2 ideas and just let her figure it out. It always turns out better than I thought it would... every time! She's always up on the latest trends too which is why I love my haircut

I had some seriously messed up coloring done to my hair by another stylist and Amber saved the day. I went from hardly being able to look at myself in the mirror and not being able to stop. I love her work. She'll make anyone look like

I walked into Allure with solid white blonde hair and an outdated cut. Christine worked her magic and gave me beautiful natural blonde hair with low-lights and high-lights. It is so dimensional and I have gotten so many compliments!

I happened to be checking out this site and saw one of my favorite places...Allure.

I've only been there 3 times (only because I live in Ladson and it is not really convenient for me), but I had the 3 best haircuts/stylings of my life.

While I know a number of the stylists there, if was a pleasure to be put in the hands of Andrew. My last session with him was 2 days before our daughter's wedding. He made me look great for one of the most important days of my life and I got numerous compliments!

I look forward to my next visit.

Haliley is the best stylist ever to touch my hair. The only problem we ever had was when the color she used wouldn't take on my hair and she fixed it at no cost of course. She has a great personality and a great eye for color and style. I look forward to my visits with her and suggest her to all my friends. Everytime I leave Allure I look awesome!!!!

I didn't know my wavy-ish hair could be curly until Jimmy started cutting it. No one else I've been to has cut my hair right for the thickness and irregular wave that it has. What Jimmy does seems basic, but no one else has done it right--he lightens the heavy layers, evens it up it makes my hair fall like it should. He's been doing this for quite a while and really knows his stuff. I'm a no-blow-dry, minimum effort person, and this cut has been perfect for me. I go every time I'm in town.
The salon itself is really nice, clean, friendly, and seems very well equipped.

My experience at Allure was fantastic! Greeted by the friendly staff and was then escorted to my stylist's chair- Jimmy. Jimmy gave me the best cut I have ever had! I have recently been back for color and saw Liz and (going from dark to light) my highlights and color are (now...!!) gorgeous. I will be back to Allure next time....xoxoxoxo Thank you!

I just had the worse experience at Allure. I drove all the way from Sullivans to be greeted by stylist who didn't even know what her level was. The stylist are ranked by levels posted on a sign at reception. She claimed to have no clipper experience whatsoever and flagged down this dude to cut my hair. I just walked out. It seems like whenever I visit the stylist are pretentious.

I leave for a business trip for the Middle East I'm the morning and can't believe I wasted the valuable time to visit Allure. I am sending this via Iphone while waiting at another salon down the road. They offered me a drink and are all smiles!

Allure doesn't offer massage and have limited services. I noticed the other reviews are a couple years old. I think things have changed at Allure.

I have worked with Kara a few times, she was good but gone for the week. I won't go back and suggest you skip the place. There are many more salons in Charleston with friendly people.

I just can't say enough wonderful things about Hailey Nagel at Allure Salon. She is the best!!! After moving to Charleston from Boston last year, I have been searching for a stylist to perfect my color and have finally found her. I have had my hair 'done' at all the name places, here and in Boston. I just got so tired of the attitude, lousy service and bad results. I am constantly amazed at how wonderful of an experience this salon is. My color looks absolutely fantastic!!! It is so natural, honestly no one even thinks that my hair is colored. Little do they know the truth! I have a secret weapon - Hailey!! I wouldn't even think of going anywhere else. The best part of the experience is that it is just a really comfortable environment, with real people! I highly recommend Hailey and Allure Salon- if you want great results and no hassle.
