I will never patronize this business again - learned my lesson the hard way! I made an appointment for partial foil and ended up having to pay more than twice what I expected because they claim I 'agreed' to full foil, cut, blow-dry and style. I guess you have to protest "no" loudly if the stylist even picks up scissors or another tool? What a rip off!!! Only go here if you are wealthy and willing to put yourself completely at the mercy of a stylist - I've received better service and quality at one of those national budget beauty salons.

I won a gift certificate($250.) at a fund raising auction - I had a facial which was ok. I had three hair cuts. Ths first was ok - I have very thin hair and if it is not cut properly it just lays flat. It was fairly flat. The second cut - my hair was cut with thinning shear in the back on one side but not the other. The made a significant cut line in the back of my hair - my husband noticed it. I went back three times to get it fixed and still have to say I was not happy. No one ever called to see if I was satisfied - ??? who's in charge??? The last hair cut - I was booked with a male stylist - he told me all about his back surgery and how he couldn't get his pain medications from his doctor. Needless to say my hair was again poorly cut. I didn't bother complaining - no one seems to care. Thank God I have used the gift card up. If you get one haircut that is off - maybe but three times by three different stylist - this place should be avoided.

I use to love going to Salono, now I wouldn't take my dog there. I have never felt so ignored at a salon in years. I waited way to long for my appt. while my stylist was busy getting tea and complaining about how much her feet hurt from last night partying and the ones she had on. Then why not wear comfortable shoes? or maybe the wouldn't ge goosh enough for the studio. What abunch of stuck up snobs that have lost their touch as stylist. I will never recomend them to anyone nor will I ever go back. Try spending some of your earnings and we know you make a ton at your prices and clean the place up a little. It STINKS !

I went to the Salon yesterday for highlights to my hair and an Anti-Curl for my daughters hair. I've lived in NOVA and have always had my hair done in NOVA/DC for the last 15 years. Since we've moved to the Fredericksburg area, it was time to find a local hairstylist. Bruce worked on my hair and Denise worked on my daughters hair.
Bruce did WONDERS to my hair in a short timeframe. I have dark color hair and I asked for blonde/tint of gold highlights to my dark hair and to have the red taken out. Any stylist can tell you how hard it is to have the red out of dark hair especially if you are attempting blonde highlights. Not only did Bruce master the look I was going for, her did it in less the time Im use to.
Not too impressed with Denise. She did do the work properly to my child's hair but im not to fond of her personality. Her price was not worth the work done but Im complelty satisfied with Bruce 100%. Future visits will be booked with Bruce for the both of us.

Was refered by a coworker so looked this salon up on the internet & made an appointment. After paying them a visit it is understandable why they have NO pictures of their establishment on the web site. This place is NOT like a day salon at ALL & does not at all reflect the expensive prices they charge. Looks more like a bad attempt of a dated urban hair salon inside. Walked out because #1: Unwelcoming atmosphere #2: I recognized one of their "Award Winning Stylist" they advertise. She used to work at the bargin nationwide hair salon where I normally get my hair cut. Also checked with that stylist's former employer when I got my hair cut (yes, went back to the bargin salon). She was no award winner & was fairly new to the business! WHAT A JOKE! If you want a real salon travel to NOVA or DC!

I've been in the F'bg. area for 9 years and have gone to Salono Salono for the last 4 years. Prior to using Salono Salono, I had to commute to Richmond to get my hair done by a great hairdresser I had gone to for ten years.

When my hairdresser in Richmond moved to another city, I had to find a new hair salon and stylist. My friends highly recommended trying Salono Salono downtown.

I've had a great experience getting my hair done for the last 4 years by the owner (coloring and haircut) - he's a great stylist who has helped me find different styles for my hair!

I really enjoy going here and recommend others try it!

I have been going to Bruce, the owner of Salono Salono, for 18 years. I have always found the staff friendly, helpful and very professional. I am always offered something to drink when I arrive. Bruce is always on time for my appointments. The prices are comparable to other salons in the area and the decor is timeless. I have recommended Salono Salono to many of my friends over the years and they have all been very pleased. In fact, just today someone stopped me to ask who did my hair. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SALONO SALONO!

I, unfortunately, have to add my agreement that this salon has gone into disrepair.

When the cut and service is good you can look past the aging looks and decor, the gossipy stylists, the lack of customer care but things have changed. It used to be the salon to go to, but even the stylist I have used for years- Liz- isn't quite what she used to be, which makes me sad. It's so hard to find a good stylist.

I've given the salon a few chances now and I've been disappointed. My last appointment was over 30 minutes late. I was there for a hi-light and what I received was mediocre. I wanted the hi-lighted color to be a darker blond but what I received was a bright blond that she then toned down with a toner. I'm not sure if this is standard practice but it makes the cost higher and I left there spending $150 including tip just for a hi-light- no cut. The cuts usually cost $50. I have to say, I've never received a bad cut from Liz, but I hate to start going to two salons just to get good cut and color.

In addition, the salon itself has a mediocre atmosphere. Again, something that you could look past if the service was better, but when you are paying $50+ you expect something nicer. I started going to Salono Salono around the year 2000 and they haven't painted or changed the decor in 10 years. It is getting dingy and dated. The stylists seem to be cattier than they used to also, gossiping about each other and complaining about their lives. Very strange.

Overall, it isn't the worst salon I've been to in Fredericksburg, but I can no longer recommend Salono Salono.

i have been a customer of salono salono for several years. i have always had a great experience. i have looked at the other responses. it seems like some people are in need of a psychiatrist instead of a stylist. especially after seeing how they spell. when i go to a salon i dont expect a lesson on what's performed on my hair. i am more interested in the outcome. i would also like to add if i ever had such a bad experience, ( in pain, or no reading material etc) i would let it be known then . i would speak up and ask for what i want. its very obvious that all the stylist there are talented. they have been there many years. that should speak volume! something has kept the salon open all these years. i would say its talent! keep up the good work salono!!!!

I have used salono salono for 5 yrs, and just last month i decided to stop going. The last couple of years the service started becoming sloppy and it seemed like my stylist {that i had for 5 years}started slacking on the products and she stopped styling my hair at the end. After reading the other reviews i feel better about stopping going. I think my loyalty to them kept me going but for the price i always paid for a semi color and a couple of highlights i know it was starting to seem like a rip off. They used to offer wine or coffee, they used to massage your scalp with your shampoo but now it was like how fast could they get you out so they could finish bitchy about there personal life. They used to be great, but i would not recomend them anymore!

This is an "upscale" salon where I have had my hair done on several occasions. Recently, the salon has gone down hill and the customer service is below acceptable standards. On my latest visit, I had a hair color,highlights and a cut. I was unhappy with my haircut the day after and requested a touch up. When I arrived, I was told there was nothing wrong with the cut and the stylist (LIZ) refused to re-cut my hair. I left a message for the owner who never returned my call. I have requested to have a refund for just the cut and have not heard back from the owner. This was, at one time, the place in Fredericksburg to go. The WOW you went to Salono, Salono, however that has changed. No more soft lights or warming conditioner. No more professional hair stylists preforming magic with your hair. Now loud music, and a guaranteed bad hair day when you leave. I do NOT recommend them. I will Never go there again!

I walk in I see two employees in the corner and one is talking LOUDly and complaining someone stole her make up and some cursing then I sit there and wait. I get taken to my chair and I tell the lady what I want. She never asked what color I wanted my hair or if I wanted it cut and or what style I was looking for. Then after putting the color on she doesnt tell me how long I will be sitting there nor does she give me anything to read while I am waiting.I am sitting there for 30 minutes staring into space. Now I am at the sink where I am still not told whats being done and left there to lay the back of my neck on the edge of the sink (which was painful). Finally she takes me back to the chair and procedes to cut my hair (which I never asked for). The whole time I felt like I didnt exist and I was only talked to because I had money they wanted. At the end she DID NOT STYLE my hair or attempt to. ALLL that for $110.00 bucks.Noone went out of their way to be friendly nor personable. I was just there to contribute to a pay check is what it felt like.
