Continuous revolving door at the front desk and bad attitudes. No return call from Stan which explains everything. Find another salon or get a better experience and value at the $10 establishments. Stay away unless you like

Tabitha was disinterested, rude, and kept the hair I BOUGHT after I had her do my extensions. I will never go back and suggest spending your money elsewhere. I felt like she was bored and more interested in her friend/stylist than me when I'd paid over $200 for hair and the service. No thanks. Businesses are judged on customer service and this place is a lemon, the Walmart of salons.

My daughter and I have been clients of James' for almost 4 years, and we cannot sing his praises enough!!!! JAMES IS FABULOUS!!!
He graciously stepped in to help us 4 years ago when another stylist we had been coming to had to leave for an emergency. She eventually left and started her own shop, but we stayed with James and I could not be happier!!! We LOVE "Uncle James"! :)

He has been hyping the Brazillian Blowout for several months, and I have been wary of it...sounded too good to be true...BUT IT'S NOT!!!

I am mixed (white and black), have fine but very curly hair. I have used relaxers in my hair in the past. They straighten, but I always have had issues with humidity and my hair never stays straight. Guaranteed-30 minutes after I do it, the curl would take over and I'd look like I stuck my finger in a light socket!!! Well NO MORE!!!

The Brazillian Blowout is AMAZING!!! I now can wear my hair straightened or naturally curly (the blowout makes the curls more relaxed). Either way I wear it, my hair is shiny, so incredibly soft and has so much body and movement!! I, as well as many other people, can't help touching and playing with my hair! As for care afterwards: once I wash and condition, it takes me 25 minutes MAX to blow dry and flat iron my shoulder length hair! Incredible!!

My daughter recently had the process as well. She has much thicker, much more coarse hair than mine. It's been a struggle with breakage and dryness. The results since have been AWESOME! Just two weeks after the Brazillian Blowout, there is such an obvious improvement! New growth, her hair is shiny, and also body and movement! We both say we now have "white girl hair"! :)

I would and have recommended anyone and everyone to go and see James at Salon Parente...HE'S THE BEST!!!!!

See Larry for your hair color makeover!!! Don't waste any more time online. If you are reading through online reviews, trying to find an Excellent Salon, You have found it. I made a Blind Date appointment with Larry and came home happier than I ever have after a hair appointment. I'm never wasting my money on anyone else, ever again. And Trust me, I have spent hundreds and came home crying! Go see Larry, you won't be disappointed!

I have been Pepper's client for 5 years. She has shown unbelievable patience in her endeavors to turn me into an elegant lady. I have challeged her because I garden and paint and don't want to turn myself in for beauty treatment. BUT....I have learned how important it is to take care of yourself with Pepper's help. So, I walk a little taller and I feel more beautiful every time she works on me. My friends notice a differnce in my appearance and my attitude. Thank you for bringing out the diamond in the rough!

Pros: Easy oarking and access from I-5

Cons: I can't see her everyday!

I've been coming to see Stan Parente for a number of years. He does excellent work. He does my hair extensions which I love and will always be going to see him for them. Salon Parente is a very friendly, professional, clean hair salon. I can't imagine going anywhere else.

I am fortunate enough to have heard about the salon through a friend of a friend about 18 months ago and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. From the receptionists to the stylists to the owner, the service is second to none - authentic, appreciative and professional.

Stan, the owner of the salon, is my stylist, and is a HAIR GENIUS. No, I'm not exaggerating. My hair is difficult to cut, and I've left salons before nearly in tears (haven't we all). I've had equal disasters in the arena of highlighting - the stylists were RAVING about how it turned out, whereas I thought I looked like a tabby cat. And an ugly one at that.

Conversely, Stan and his staff take time to really listen to what YOU want, what YOU are comfortable with (as opposed to some stylists who think of you as nothing more than a vehicle for their "art"). Stan has made great recommendations for my hair - both cut and color, then executed them flawlessly.

You know when you look in the mirror some days and you say, "I love my hair?" - so much so that it crosses your mind to write a thank-you to your stylist? I've had dozens of those days, thanks to Stan, and I'm certain you will too.

Another applaudable aspect of the salon is Stan's commitment to developing his stylist through rigorous, methodical instruction. His students learn the business from the ground up, and are only authorized to accept client appointments once Stan is convinced they can deliver outstanding service.

My biggest concern is what happens if Stan decides to retire 20 years from now??? I'm already having flashbacks to the days of the "tabby-do"!

I have been seeing Jen for about 6 months now. I am extremely picky about color, and she always gets it right. Jen knows what's hot and what fits your own personal style. Not all of us want short hair. Her haircuts are amazing as well. Jen is fun, talented, and truely a gifted stylist. I would recommend her to everyone.

I get my hair done my Stan, the owner of Salon Parente and I love it. I live about 20 minutes away, but refuse to find someone closer. He does an excellent job, and his prices, though not cheap, are resonable. It's hard to find a hairstylist you trust, but he's great. Just don't expect the usual salon gossip.
