Always Excellent Cut and Color!!!! – I found Mary Jo and Imago Salon 10 years ago. I have been more pleased with my cut and color each year. Mary Jo and her great staff are often going to NY to undergo training in the the latest cut design and color techniques. Mary Jo always explains what she is doing and why..especially if I suggest something that will not work for my face shape or hair texture. The whole salon has a warm, contemporary feel, filled with staff who sincerely seem to enjoy themselves as well as making their clients happy.
The best highlight and haircut ever – I always thought I had a "good" haircut but now I know what "great" is. Mary Jo is amazing at cutting hair. Casey did my highlights and they are just as amazing. I don't think I've ever been happier w/ the results. Bravo Imago!
Best Haircut EVER – I went to Shae because I wanted a total transformation, and she gave me EXACTLY what I wanted. I've been to several great stylists across the country, so I am pretty hard to please. It took being deeply disappointed in a few stylists before I found her, and I will never go to another stylist as long as I'm in Richmond. She took her time and seemed like an artist at work while she did my cut. I had a few things I wanted her to compensate for (hairline and the back of my head is flat), and she handled it with ease where others have failed miserably. She is quite obviously extremely talented, and I would recommend her to anyone I love!!
Not Just for Curly Hair! – I see Casey at Imago and my hair has never looked better…not to mention how soft and silky it feels! Casey listens to what I want and actually hears me – she is simply the best at what she does.
Mary Jo (the owner) is committed to customer service and has created a fun atmosphere in a very professional salon. A job well done by Mary Jo and everyone at Imago! I can’t recommend this salon highly enough!
My New Salon!!! – Imago came recommended to me by one of Richmond's elite bartenders that always has the most fabulous hair! I walked in on a Friday afternoon with no appointment hoping I would be in luck of a highlight and cut... I was celebrating my birthday that night and wanted to look as good as I felt about that!! I was greeted with smiles and enthusiasm, I filled out their info. sheet and was greeted by my new stylist Shae! She took my ideas and the pics I had brought with me and rolled with them giving me great advice and her own touch. She did an icy blonde partial highlight, a toner rinse with a Kimberly Caldwell/ texturized shorter cut and styled it with a dryer, a flat iron and Davines Wonder Wax which took no time! She told me the cut we were going with would be easy to work with and take no time to style on my own... and you always like to believe that because stylist always have the magical touch that I never seem to find especially when I am running late for whatever buuuuuuut Shae was Totally Right!!! This may be the easiest hairstyle that only brings great complements from people that I never even expected them from and that always makes me feel SO Good!!!! I am Totally stoked to make my next appointment with Shae for my latest idea!
Best stylist in town – A friend recommended Mary Jo to me when I was looking for a new stylist. That was almost 10 years ago, and I've never felt more confident and pleased.
No longer frizzy! – I've stuggled with my curls my entire life and kept my hair short so I wouldn't have to deal with the frizz. I moved to Richmond eight years ago, and have tried countless salons. None of the stylislist I tried really knew how to cut and style curly hair.
Then I was introduced to Imago Salon about a year ago and my curls have been transformed. My hair is longer than it's ever been and I have defined, soft, bouncy curls. I go back once a month to have my roots touched up, I've had highlights and other treatments and I have always been delighted with the results. I love the products the salon uses as they are all natural and developed for curly hair. All of the stylists know exactly which products you should use for your hair type. I learned so much about curly hair from these folks. I now wash my hair as if it was a fine cashmere sweater.
All of the stylists are knowledgeable about all of the trends and continue to go for up-to-the-minute training in NYC. I usually go to Casey but would trust any of the stylists with my hair. If you have curly hair, you must try this salon. You will not be disappointed.
I Fly Down from Boston to get my Curls Cut HERE – My boss years ago recommended that I go to MaryJo to get my hair cut. Since high school I had tried out a variety of salons: Christopher John (is that still around?), Salon del Sol, and Nesbit among others and they could NEVER cut my hair the way I wanted it to be cut, even though they claimed they could cut curly hair. BS. Until I discovered the Devachan Salon up in NYC...trucked on up on the Chinatown Express 1AM bus...real cheap-like cuz I knew the haircut was probably going to incredibly expensive...which it was $250. BUT it was AMAZiNG. FiNALLY I got the style I had always imagined. NOW the great thing is Mary Jo and everyone else are certified by this very salon!! But will cut your hair for a third of the price!
I'm not sure why there are a couple of horrid reviews on here because I've only ever had a great experience at IMAGO Salon. and I love the pups if they are still there!!
And Casey, is great with color! (if she's still there...I was travelling abroad for the year.) And now I live in Boston. AND I will still fly down to get my hair cut at this marvelous salon. Mary Jo always does an INCREDiBLE job on my hair. I don't know what I would do without her.
My curls love Mary Jo – I was referred to Imago by a friend because I needed hair repair :) Now I wouldn't trust my curls to any one else. Congrats to Mary Jo and the everyone at Imago for being named top 100 salons by Elle magazine!!! You deserve it.
Its great, they even have a mascot named Peanut (a little Yorkie) so cute and friendly.
When you walk in the door you feel welcome instantly. When you leave you know you have a great cut and color too.
