I am newer to the Richmond area and decided to try out Salon Del Sol since I've heard good things. The salon I used to go to where I used to live was an Aveda salon, so I was looking for that. When I called to set up an appointment, the front desk receptionist was very informative and asked great questions so that I would be down for exactly what I wanted. She also told me that there are 4 different level stylists and explained the differences. I settled with a "senior" level stylist and I was very, very pleased with the service as well as the price! I think this is the best cut I have ever had! I had called around to other Aveda salons in Richmond and when I asked the price they were telling me $95 for JUST the cut! That's a bit crazy to me...for my cut(which like I stated I LOVE!) and my color, as well as a blowdry and stlye....it was $120 I believe! That's awesome when other salons wanted me to pay $95 for JUST the cut...no blow dry...no color...nothing but taking some scissors to my head!

When I stepped into Salon Del Sol, I was greeted very friendly, asked if I'd like a beverage, AND asked if I'd like a warm neck wrap! HOW RELAXING! My stylist was very knowledgeable, but very sweet. She gave me her professional opinion, but still listened to what I wanted. I received a cut and color and it is PERFECT! She even took extra time to show me how to style it at home, since the cut is something I've never had before and gave me a hand as well as a neck and scalp massage!! She did explain to me what products she used on me and why, but never once pushed any products on me! While my hair was processing, a very sweet girl even came up and asked if I would like to try out some sort of eye treatment. Please make sure you all ask for this! It was amazing! It was like having a spa experience for $15 dollars!! I was a bit skeptical because you know how larger salons can be, but please let me tell you that this was the best service I have ever had and will be making Salon Del Sol my regular salon. Do yourself a favor and go check them out!

Not a Good Experience--TWICE! – Went to the Midlothian Salon Del Sol twice for color and was sorely disappointed both times. The first time I actually went back and politely let them know I wasn't satisfied; in their defense they did try to rectify the problem and did not charge me for the fix. That's fine and I was willing to try them again (same stylist)...as we all know, sometimes it takes a few tries to get into a groove with a new hairdresser. When I went back 6 weeks later for another color however the results were bad AGAIN. Both times were from one of their "master" stylists. I got a base color and some highlights--a process I've been doing for nearly 20 years now and this was one of the most amateurish jobs I've ever had, cartoonish and streaky--it was terrible. I went out the next day to a different salon to have it fixed and they did a lovely job. I will NOT go back to Salon del Sol...save your money and go elsewhere. It was also a bit annoying the way they hawk the products--it was uncomfortable.

Fair at best – I've had my hair cut at Salon del Sol twice. The haircuts/styles were fine both times--nothing spectacular, but good for the price. On my first visit around this time last year they had scheduled my appointment for only 30 minutes...even my stylist thought that was weird. The cut was fine, but I left the salon with geled/scrunched hair due to lack of time (obviously, I would have preferred to have it dried). I let it go, figuring it was just a weird mix-up in their scheduling--plus the stylist had been professional and friendly.

I went to a different location several months later with no issue. Again, the haircut was fine.

I had an appointment this week, or so I thought. They'd actually scheduled it for the same weekday a week later. I know this wasn't my error because I'll be out of town then and wouldn't have scheduled for the date they had me down for. The gals at the front desk were nice enough about it, but I won't be be going back again. Driving across town to find out that your appointment has either been reduced to 30 minutes or misscheduled is incredibly frustrating. I'll take my business somewhere that makes less booking mistakes.

Salon del Sol positives: Nice staff, clean atmosphere, decent cuts for the price

negatives: Appointments are a h it or miss. You might want to follow up the day of.

BEST Salon around!!!! – I came to this website to leave a positive review because I am fairly new in town and I know how hard it is to find a good place so I am leaving it help others. I have been a customer of Salon Del Sol for a short period of time. I read some of the other reviews I am QUITE surprised to hear that anything could be negative about Salon Del Sol. I go to the Clover Hill location and usually use see VICKI or HOPE because they are the two master stylist that I was told that work there. I like the last person that left a review am from Manhattan as well and I expect a certain level being a business professional. Every time I have been to either stylist I have been MORE than pleased. Vicki is fun loving caring and just nice to look at {especially nice looking for her age}. Hope steals my interest in her love for her work. The time and I assume the money she has spent to go all of the places she tells me about. I lived in Manhattan for god sake and she has taken more classes in Manhattan then the guys that did my hair in Manhattan. The front desk does seem to have a big turn over, but much to be expected for that type of job. It is very clean and well decorated. As for the last couple of negative reviews it seems like you are very hard to please people. The last review that says VICKI was bad, you have been to 4 places already well do the math, maybe you are just unpleasable. As for the others that said HOPE was not up to par, I feel the same. You obviously have low self estem and think that hair is going to make everything better. Its just hair for gods sake. I think you all should review SHRINKS! Salon Del Sol is a professional, friendly, clean and educated facility. You cant go wrong here!

Bad hair Cut – Beltbuckle, you seem to know the stylists by name and their personality, therefore you either work there or have a personal interest it the business. Those of us who have gone there and paid top dollar for a bad hair cut have the right to post a negative opinion.

This is the third time I have gone to Salon Del Sol. I have been to the same person each time (Vicki) and I have always gotten a decent (not great) cut. This time however my cut was terrible. The layers are uneven and the ends are frizzy and frayed. This salon is overrated and overpriced. I moved here from NYC three years ago and cannot find anyone who knows the concept of blending layers or how to give a good hair cut. Salon Del Sol was my fourth salon since I have been here. At this point I think it might be worth the five hour drive back home to get my hair cut.

Really disappointed – I had my hair cut a few times here, each time by Hope. I found that her cuts and her personality run hot and cold. Sometimes she is upbeat and friendly, other times sullen. The last two haircuts were so bland that I went home and cut in my own texture and restyled it. Okay, everybody has a bad day so one bland haircut will grow out and I can restyle it. The next time I asked her for something new. The newness was the same cut, only two inches shorter and bangs that didn't fit my face. I don't feel I should have to recut and restyle my hair and put up with a grumpy person, especially after paying the price I paid. I won't be going back.

Haven't had a bad experience in 7 years . . . – I'm not one to comment on these types of boards (I don't even leave feedback on ebay); however, I feel compelled to support my Salon Del Sol stylist, Tiffany Perrin. I recently tried to book an appt. with Tiffany, only to find out that she was out with a broken foot. When asked if I wanted to see someone else, the answer was a resounding "NO!" I've been seeing Tiffany every 4-6 weeks for the past 7 years (I even followed her from another salon) - there's no way I would let anyone else touch my hair. I'm sure all of the other stylists are wonderful, but it is rare to be so completely satisfied with your hair cut/color/style every time you leave the salon. Tiffany has always understood and executed exactly what I have asked for. She even came up with something great when I didn't know what I wanted. Tiffany has been a part of every special occasion in my life - from prom "updos" to extensions for my wedding. I'm one to reinvent myself often, and Tiffany has always seemed to enjoy the challenges I've put to her. Plus, I get complemented a lot by complete strangers - that's when you know you must really look good : ) Tiffany is always completely professional, but she's also very personable and pretty hilarious - this girl can tell a story! Going to the salon is a lot of fun for me. Like I said, I never comment on these types of things, but thought this might be a good way to show how appreciative I am of Tiffany and everything she's done for my self esteem over the years.

Don't go to this Salon – I began going to this location when my current stylist moved to Hawaii. I reviewed the stylists online & choose Hope Hall for his replacement. I booked my appt w/her for either a highlight (H/L) or color (I would discuss that w/her later) but requested 1.5-2 hrs for this appt When I met w/Hope she said they only booked a 1/2hr & when I told her what I requested for the appt she said "Well you should have known what you wanted". Isn't that the idea of meeting for the first time w/the stylist to discuss that? I thought she was rather rude but bit my tongue cuz I needed by roots done badly. She only could do a mini H/L at that time & we discussed what we would do at the next appt which I needed a full H/L by then & booked a full H/L. When I arrived at my next appt she informed me once again that not enough time was booked. ???? What the !!! I'm a pretty tolerant person so I let that go once again but was fuming inside. We again discussed my next appt & decided upon a color correction (C/C) which she told me I needed 3hrs. When I arrived for my C/C I was told I wasn't scheduled AT ALL!! I had my card proving it, took off work for it yet again a screw up, had to re-schedule & would have to take off work again. This time I voiced my displeasure strongely yet calmly. By now I was wondering if this is on purpose. Hope did acknowledge she was there when I made the appt when the recept spoke to her & the manager about it yet neither one came out to apologize. I thought "Don't they care about the client"? Now remember Hope told me I need 3hrs for a C/C so I called earlier in the week of my appt to check to make sure I was scheduled & asked how long was the appt & was told 1hr15mins. I later remembered the 3hr deal & that I told that to the recept when I rescheduled. I called back & questioned the time & was told by the manager that Hope said it was enough time. I just knew when I arrived for the C/C that I'd be told there wasn't enough time. Day of the appt I canceled.

Extremely disappointing – I have been to Salon del Sol on Hull Street and have been pleased, so this review references a particular stylist at Midlothian & Hull St. I chose to try Hope Hall based on the fact that she is a Master Stylist and has trained under Nick Arrojo from What Not To Wear. I've seen the miraculous transformations that Nick has performed so I thought Hope would be a good choice. I took several photos of myself with hairstyles that I found to be rather dull and boring and several images of styles I found that I really liked. She looked at all the photos and images and told me they were the same cut, but that I was not achieving that look because I do not style with a blowdryer and brush. I told her that I've had issues with coordinating the two, but was open to learning any techniques she could share, but that no one had really bothered to take the time in the past. I showed her the look I was trying to achieve and what I came out with was entirely different. We started with the length, she said she would start from that and work her way up. I said cut off about 3inches and she cut off at least 5 or 6. My hair was below my shoulder blades and when I walked out of there it was barely below my shoulders. The style had none of the volume that was seen in any of the photos nor did it bare any resemblance to any of them. It actually reminded me of Carol Brady's shag in the Brady Bunch. Despite volumizing products and the blowdry with round brush styling, a mere 2 hours later my hair was completely flat and devoid of style. My bangs were just hanging down limp. I decided to try and save it with my curling iron, which was not easy due to all the new layers cut in. I styled it as best I could to make it look like anything close to what I could be seen in public with. Almost 7 hours later, including 90 minutes of blueberry picking in 100 degree heat, my hair looks like it did after I styled it. I am praying that it grows fast, but I will not have Hope touch my hair again.

good service – I tried this place out for a drastic hair cut, I had about 6 inches cut and bangs carved out. The woman who cut my hair was a "Junior", that is like the 2nd level of exerience. They have 4 levels and the prices vary according to those levels. Junior costs about $35 for a cut. My hair dresser was wonderfully attentive, careful, conscientious, and very nice. I felt comfortable that she would do a good job and she seemed to focus on what she was doing, down to the last hair. She did exactly what I asked her to. Her name was Liss.
