Very Professional:) – Thank you Thank you for saving my hair, I recommend this Salon to anyone with high standards.
Come all the way from New Zeland for a cut... – I moved from Salt Lake City in 2004 and leaving behind haircuts from Jeff was one of the hardest parts about leaving.
I do however make it a point to try and book in for a cut on returning visits. He may he hard to get into but well worth the wait. His attitude towards cutting, colouring and styling is in a class of its own. I have travelled and even moved to the other side of the planet but will still make it a point to make time for Dexterity anytime I'm back in SLC.
Sittng in Jeff's chair is an experience not to be missed!!!
Fabulous stylists – I have been getting my hair done at Dexterity since they opened. I love it so much I still come here, even though I live in San Diego!
Both Jeff and Stephen have been my stylists here before and both do a great job. I generally come in for a cut and color and have never been disappointed. I have referred dozens of friends here over the years that have had other stylists and all have had great experiences using other stylists as well.
Recently I had a quick cut and color and was very pleased with the results. My hair is dark and I just needed my roots done and a quick trim. I don't know why I haven't always done it this way! It was faster than a full cut and color, cheaper and still looked awesome.
The atmosphere is great and they also sell Bumble and Bumble products at the salon. Staff is friendly and my hair always turns out amazing every time I come here! I would highly recommend this salon to anyone.
best salon in slc. – I have been going to Dexterity for about 3 years. I have had nothing but positive experiences there- the salon's atmosphere is unique and features new art from locals monthly. It is hip and progressive yet friendly and comfortable. Recently, I had my hair cut from the middle of my back to my chin. It was a big step yet I felt totally at ease with my stylist who is not only a professional, but an artist as well. It was a "i can't believe I didn't do this sooner" hair cut. every appointment since then has been just as rewarding- whether it be cut or color. Last week at the Avenues Street Fair a girl came up to me and told me I had a great hair cut- she asked what salon I went to. I told her Dexterity and she and her friends laughed because they had asked another girl with a different short hair cut at the fair the same question- and she had the same answer. The girls said "So pretty much if you have an amazing hair cut- you go to Dexterity, right?" ...... "Right," I said.
Salt Lake's Best Salon – I've been going to Dexterity since just about day one, and I've only had very positive experiences. In fact, I'm there every 3 weeks and really appreciate the unpretentious yet decidedly hip atmosphere, the way above average customer service and, of course, the impeccable cuts. Owners Jeff and Tara have assembled a terrific staff. As importantly, they have managed to imbue the entire salon with a personality that feels similar to who they are as people: warm, open, careful and precise. I highly recommend the experience.
Could not help but notice the lengthy posting by Andie. I've never experienced anything like she reports, and she seems prone to exaggeration (how can she have been a regular customer for "10 years" when the salon has only been open for 5?). But I can only speak for myself, and the salon has always been more than fair with me.
cutomer for a little over 2 years, lovin it – I've got absolutely no complaints. Greeted by smiling faces, hair cut by the hand of a true professional, Dexterity always has a pleasing atmosphere everytime I come in for appointments. Before landing with Dexterity I was bouncing around between different salons trying to find a stylist I liked. I would assume you all can relate, most everyone goes through this sort of process at some point. The thing that really made an impression on me with Dexterity is that I felt like the stylist actually cared about what they were doing. I personally felt important and could sense their pride and enthusiasm for what they were doing. That is the sort of thing I like to see in any business and I feel lucky to have given Dexterity a chance.
I keep my hair short and my cuts have always been relatively simple. After working with my stylist through the first few cuts, I started to recognize the insight that they held even into the simplest of cuts. I've never had a stylist understand hair on the level they did. My stylist could easily recognize certain problem areas or predicaments with the way my hair grows and modify my style to work with it. Nowadays my trust is such that I just tell them, "do whatever you think will look good" and they do, and it does, I just kick back and relax and my hair turns out looking great. No stress confidence boosting hair cuts to me are worth every penny.
Feels like family – Every time I walk in I'm greeted like a favorite family member. The staff and stylists all create a warm, friendly, unpretentious environment. The quality of service is amazing and Jeff Martin is simply the best. I can't possibly say enough good things about him!
Best salon in the city – I have been going to the owner/stylist of Dexterity for over 10 years. He is the best stylist I have ever been to and I have incredibly difficult hair. I was thrilled when he opened his own salon as I knew it would reflect his style and flare. I was not dissappointed. The salon is classy and confortable. The staff is always friendly and Sam the receptionist is always happy, smiling and accomadating. The owners are doing an excellent job in making Dexterity the best salon in this city. It actually feels like you are in a bigger, more cosmopolitan city than Salt Lake. They offer many great services including the option for a quick cut or color to meet the needs of their customers. In addition, there is a great cafe next door where you can get great food and specialty coffee. Definelty the place to go!!!
Needs Math & Marketing Skills – I had been a loyal and regular customer of this salon for over 10 years. I was a customer of the owner since 1996, even before he opened Dexterity. And I agree with all the positive comments about the skills of its stylists. I spent an average of over $120 per month there. If you are a one-time customer or you schedule your appointment just a few times a year as-needed, the positive comments here are exactly right. However, if you are a regular customer, you might be able to see otherwise; as they just took me for granted and didn't really care about retaining me. Not long after the Dexterity Salon was established, they had this weird idea about calculating their fees, which I still don't understand: 1. In their menu, "quick color" means touch up of root color and shampoo, but without blow dry or styling, so you leave with wet hair. They used to charge me around $60 for "quick color" if this was the only service I had. Note that even for "quick color" they had to shampoo my hair before I left. 2. "Full color" includes consultation, color, shampoo, blow dry and styling. They used to charge me $100 to $180 if this was the only service I had. 3. "Full hair cut" includes consultation, hair cut, shampoo, blow dry and styling. They used to charge me $70 to $95 if this was the only service provided. Because I lived far away from downtown and I didn't want to leave with wet hair from the salon (which would be totally dry by the time I got home and difficult to style by then), and I didn't want to just have single service performed every time and hence had to visit them too frequently; I started scheduling multiple services (as I always did with the owner stylist before he opened Dexterity) in one visit every 4 weeks. My usual and ideal combination were: first month - full hair color; second month - full hair cut and quick color; third month - full hair color; fourth month - full hair cut and quick color; etc. So I had a full hair cut every 8 weeks and I had tried to schedule it with a quick color, thinking that this would save me and them time. However, after a while I was told that I could not schedule the quick color and full hair cut together, because the quick color didn't include blow dry and styling! Well, until this day, I still don't understand why! I mean, anyone with some elementary math skills wouldn't understand. For example, for a quick color + a full hair cut combined in one visit they could charge me at least $130 and had both services done within one and a half hour (plus saving one shampoo). Whereas, if I had two separate appointments they would have charged me the same total amount, but would have to shampoo me twice and with increased cost to them (more time spent and addtional utility costs)! They would have to blow dry and style my hair anyway because I had the full hair cut. So I don't understand why they didn't want to do it simply because I added in a quick color?! Well, anyway, I left the salon for a few months and then went back to a different stylist there. My original combination of the quick color and full hair cut worked for a while. But then my stylist told me again that the owner said they couldn't allow me to have that combination! It is outrageous!!! I went to other salons and asked them why this might be a problem but no one understood why, and all the other salons that I talked to didn't think this combination would have given them any disadvantage profit-wise at all. Fortunately, I found an amazing stylist elsewhere two years ago and I have left Dexterity for good. I just think that they must be too stupid to treat any of their long-term, regular customers like this. Boy, do they need some marketing and accounting advice urgently!!!
great hair cut – I had my hair cut here yesterday by Hatty, and I love it. it's been really hard for to find someone to cut my hair exactly like i want it. maybe i don't explain myself very well, but she knew exactly what i was getting at. it's true that the more experienced the stylist, the more you pay, but many salons are like that. Also, you get what you pay for. even their more experienced stylists are very reasonable. i would definitely recommend Hatty to anyone that's looking for a nice, cute, modern hairstyle.
