Charged TWICE my quoted price and took THREE times as long – I had the most disappointing end result, and was charged twice what I was quoted and took three times as long...
I had a gift card to Moda, and looking at their website and prices, booked a partial foil. I was very specific to book a partial foil at the current rate of $66 - the bare minimum foil. I had never gotten color there before and didn't know what to expect. I also asked what the timeline would be and the receptionist said about 60-75 minutes.
Upon arrival I checked in and met my stylist. She asked me if we were doing a foil and a cut. I said "No, Partial".
I wanted something fun and chunky and dramatic within the blonde/light brown family (my hair was all over bleached blonde) to help transition my color back to natural. We looked at photos and discussed "chunky" for my partial.
Instead she ended up doing a full foil with two colors. She never once said that this is an additional cost, or that she was doing a full foil. The color was well blended, and ended up about 1/2 a shade darker than when I came in. Not at all what I wanted. THREE hours later we finally started drying my hair - but by then I was there almost three times as long as I had anticipated, so I requested to not have my hair styled.
I go to check out in a rush, and find out my total was $117. I asked why the price had more than DOUBLED. The receptionist said she didnt know (to quote her "Maybe it was because it took so long, or you're hair is really thick" As a side note, my hair is fine and extremely thin), and could ask the stylist. I said I needed to leave, as I was already an hour late to my next appointment, so she offered to check with the stylist and call me back.
I have yet to hear from them.
I'm disappointed because The appointment took THREE times as long, was charged TWICE as much as I was quoted, and I didn't received a single service I came in for. I also was NEVER informed of any additional costs or made aware of changes.
I wanted a fun summer look and ended up with a color I could have done myself for $7 dollars from a box.
Shannon for Hair Services – I've been seeing Shannon for hair services for about six months now. I don't have a lot of hair to work with, but love having layers to curl my hair with. I have had some haircuts in the past at other salons where my layers get too choppy and I end up feeling like I have no hair left. But Shannon knows how to give me the perfect amount of layers while keeping my hair as long as possible. She does a great job at coloring my hair as well. No matter how comfortable your economic state is, she is willing to work with any budget and can recommend different options for your color. She creates a beautiful color for me, that fades out beautifully too, so that my lighter roots aren't totally obvious if I can't afford another color for awhile. She's friendly and professional, and I'd recommend her to anyone.
what a joke – owner was sloppy and unprofessional, stylist were acting like they were in middle school, don't be fooled by the "INSIDE" reviews here!
More Moda please! – I've had my hair styled at various price-point salons. From the $10 Hair Academy, $25 mall salon and the $50+ range salons. Each one has its perks (mainly the price) but none had the "X" factor like Moda Hair Cafe & Day Spa.
When I looked in the mirror and realized my hair was growing out crooked from the last Salon butchering, I decided to put my "shoe/coffee allowance" towards a neighborhood Salon, that might be a bit pricey (starting at $36), but worth it in the end.
I have met with Dani four times in the past year, and each visit is a new experience, from what style I feel like sporting for the next few months to "Hey, I'm inspired by your sweater. Do you have a minute while I give you a mini-makeover?" That made my day!
I would recommend Moda to anyone, whether you are getting your nails done, need to relax with a facial or you are sick of your "do-nothing" hair style.
I always leave Moda feeling confident, knowing I will always have a good hair day.
WOW! Fern thank you for being so amazing. – Fern (owner/ stylist) is one of the most experienced stylist I have ever met. I am quite picky when it comes to my hair. I have been on the hunt for a new stylist for about a year and a half. My search is now over.
Anyone who has had one of those haircuts where your hair is just easy after will understand. It may sound simple but it's not. Fern expressed a high level of knowledge when it came to both hair cutting and color technique. She took me from blond to the most amazing chocolate brown. I just LOVE it!
I told her to give me a bunch of her cards because I just know I will be stopped in the street and I will gladly pass along her name.
Extremely Pricey! – After reading several reviews, I was very excited to try MODA salon and try a new summer haircut. Right when I got in to the reception area, I have to wait a few minutes to get checked in because the receptionist was chatting with a co-worker. She did not even notice me coming in that I have to wait and get her attention! I arrived a few minutes early, so I sat down and waited for my stylist. She came in on time and greeted me with a smile. She was very courteous, pleasing, and I appreciated the attention and detail that she gave me. For a $43 haircut, I was expecting something edgy, modern, and fresh BUT I would have gotten the same result elsewhere and pay half the price. I have no problem paying extra if it would produce a good result, yet the services in this salon was overpriced! I even chose a senior stylist but to no avail :( I am not coming back again and I do not recommend it to anyone.
Try it - you'll love it! – I love Moda! I've never had a 'bad hair' experience. The staff is very professional - I love Jacqueline - though probably a bit pricey on various items, you can't beat the service or the resulting product!!
Great services - super friendly staff!!! – I love this place - I regularly visit for eyebrow waxing, lash and brow tinting and facials. They seriously "design" your eyebrows! Keegan and Shay Lynn are excellent - super friendly and I get compliments on my skin all the time thanks to their expertise. Their product lines for make up and skin care are top of the line. Everyone in this place is friendly - from the minute you walk in to the minute you leave. I 100% recommend taking some spa time for yourself here!
Moda VIP – I was talked into going to moda by a friend who gave me a gift cert that she had gotten from the salon called a VIP, to be honest i thought it was a little corny; however after visiting i can see why they call it that. I was welcomed warmly and had a great experience meeting the director of the salon and owners. I was taken care of like a true VIP and i love my new hair! Moda is not cheap but the staff is friendly, the hair is great and I?m trying out the spa next week! Thanks for the recommendation Julie!
Nice staffing & salon – I have gone to this hair salon a few times already & truly do love the experience every time!The girls working there are so friendly & really listen to your needs & interests.The service is outstanding as they always offer a drink & to hang up your coat.If you don't know what you want done to your hair,they are sure to help figure out a look for you.The salon carries great products like bumble & bumble (I absolutely love).I can't say that I have been to the spa portion of the salon but will try it one day.I am always pleased with the outcome of my haircut & style.The price is $39 but also includes a shampooing & conditioner.I can't wait to go back for a fresh new summer time look!
