I've been a Starrs Sister client now for the last 15 years or so and I just want to finally take the time to give a huge thank you for the consistent high quality service, experience, and technical skill that has been shown over that time. From the first stylist I began with to the current one (Georgia), all have been wonderful. Thanks again, good job.

Pros: consistent high quality

Cons: none

In my 7 years of going to Starr's Sisters I have never had a bad experience. I have been seen by multiple stylists and have never had a problem. They are all very educated on how to make a person look their absolute best. I usually approach Starr's Sisters with an open mind, frequently telling them (usually Allison!) that I don't care what she does as long as its not what I currently have. When I am interested in a specific style they are able to play with the cut to make it work with the structure of my face.

In addition when I was planing for my wedding, I did not hesitate to make my appointment with them. I too saw Emily and was thrilled with the results, I wouldn't have changed a thing. I have seen them do such beautiful work, for my wedding as well as others.

I also love that they serve you coffee or tea. Their music selection rocks, you'll never see such unique art work covering the walls and they use the absolute best products available.

I am currently living in Colorado and usually try to wait to have my hair cut until I'm back in Eau Claire visiting friends and family. I love how they make me feel and how they make my hair look.

A special thank you to Allison who was not only a great roommate but a terrific friend. Thanks for always making me look fabulous.

I check this site every now&then.
There has'nt been many reviews until recently,but I haven't seen much about the stylist who has made my special day feel perfect.

I went to pre grad in Eau Claire,my roomate(whos from Eau Claire,WI) told me that it was the only place to go to get your hair done...I trusted her,her hair always looked great.
Back then,she said to go to(Carmen)who isn't there anymore.

My husband is from the Eau Claire area & we thought it be best to get married in the city where we met.
I was nervous about trying someone new for the day we were to get married espicially since I had'nt been there in years.We have been living in Chicago,ILL for years & Im picky.

When I went to visit his family for a few days & also thought it be best to make appointments at different salons,on different days(in Eau Claire,WI)with different hairstylists,so i can test their abilities on the style I wanted for my wedding.
I wanted to make sure that my style not only looked good when I left but also still looked great by midnight.

I found the stylist at Starr Sisters.
I booked my whole wedding party.
I had "Emily",but all the other girls there did a great job also!
No complaints!

It took time to do my style,but it was perfect!! It stayed all day&all night. When she was done,she even had me shake my head as hard as I could,to make sure my style would look great no matter what!! It even kept its shape the next morning!!
Trust me!!!
If you want you hair to look like you just came out of a magizine...go there!!!

I had tried three other salons in that area & no one could compare to the quality I & my bridemaids had!
Its worth the money.
All my pictures look great,no matter what angle or how late in the evening it was.
If contact me,I can give the website of the company who did my photos...its been 2yrs,but I think they used them in a promo...it was that good!!

Pros: All seem to definitely know how to do great hair

Cons: I live in Chicago,ILL so the cost of living is higher but I can see how(if lived in the area)its pricey

I have been going to Starr's for 10 years now. I refuse to go anywhere else. I typically see Emily but every stylist at the salon is experienced, professional, and amazing. The atmosphere and the music is great and they really listen to what you want. I've had my hair every length and color and each time I go to have something done, I always leave with exactly what I wanted. I recommend the place to all of my friends. I don't understand people complaining about the price; you can go to Cost Cutters and pay $12.99 and look ridiculous if you want to I guess. I'm a firm believer that you pay for what you get. The stylists there are constantly participating in continuing education and learning a ton of new things as it's a very progressive place. Don't let any of the bad reviews you see deter you from at least trying it out. It's unfortunate that some people have had a bad experience, but keep in mind that nobody is perfect and mistakes happen. I had Emily and Georgia do everyone's hair for my wedding and every single person was pleased with their styles.

Love Starrs Sister!!! My mom has been getting her hair done with Nancy since the 80's....where she would even come to our house and do her hair!!! Once I got to the age to actually get my hair done at a salon that was the only option. My mom now goes to either Gretta or Emily and still does yoga with Nancy. Starrs has been a family affair my entire life, I am always greeted with a smile and a hug. I now live in a different state but will still go back and get my hair done, and trust me the prices are very reasonable. You just need to get out of Eau Claire for a minute to understand that. But you are getting great atmosphere, great people, and if you go back enough it will feel like family!

have gone to this salon since the early 90's along with my sister, daughter and husband and none of us, along with several friends that go here, have ever had an unpleasant experience. It's owned by a cool couple Nancy and John. Nancy is the head stylist and has been doing hair since 70's as well as teaching yoga (there is a yoga studio upstairs where she teaches) and John is an artist and his work is featured all throughout the salon. The staff ranges from women in the 40's to young girls just out of hair school with tattoos and piercings. It definitely is NOT just catered toward the college students that live around the salon's location. This salon caters to professionals and people from all walks of life. NOT just college kids. I have been to this salon for just about every service you can imagine, from perms in the 80's (they even made a perm look good!), highlights, wedding hairstyles, every haircut imaginable, to waxing and makeup lessons (whatever happend to Aaron their makeup artist? he was SOOOO talented and i could use a makeover!) with every service and each stylist that i tried, i never have had a bad experience. i've always left satisfied with my services and feeling beautiful. sure, the prices are a bit higher than other salons in town, but in my opinion, it is money well spent.

I was very disappointed with my experience. I will never go back and I will tell everyone NOT to go there. I was to get a STYLE for my sister's wedding. I unfortunately was running late due to construction and wrong directions. I called my sister and asked if they would shill have time to do the STYLE if not would find some place else. They said they had the time. So I got there and when the stylist sidney asked what I wanted I said what ever she could get done. I was to get a STYLE at $25.00 and instead she did and updo which cost me $50.00. I had no time to argue at that time and figured I could call and complain later as my sister was getting married in a few hours. I left not satisfied with what it looked like. I got to the site where my sister was getting married and after 15 minutes my hair fell out on top of not getting what I wanted. So I spent and 1 1/2hours redoing my hair. I called and spoke with the manager patty and asked for a refund or credit of some sort and was told that she had to ask the boss. I didn't get a call back after a week so I called again. she still hadn't talked with the boss and then a few days later finally called and told me they don't do any refunds for updo's. Patty said she would talk to the stylist sidney to see if she would give me some sort of refund and...to my surprise I haven't heard back in 3 weeks it is now 9/30/08. Go figure - I wish I would've read some of these other comments before I went there. But too late now but I will try to warn as many people as I can at the rude, unpleasant, crabby, selfish salon and staff at Starr Sister's in Eau Claire. Please forward to friends and family so they don't get screwed.

Cons: won't refund money if you are unsatisfied or credit you

I'm not a regular customer at this salon, but I have gone on occasion when I simply cannot get in to see my regular stylist at Retreat Spalon. The atmosphere is funky and definitely targeted towards college students. Which makes sense, considering they're just minutes from campus. The stylists do a great job, and give you a wonderful scalp massage as a nice extra perk. However, for a salon that caters to a university demographic, their prices don't match up. They are very expensive, but they do give a great haircut. If price is no object, check them out. They're in the downtown, which is always great, if you ask me.

PROS: Funky Atmosphere, Great Massage
CONS: Price!
