Ok, so I went to my first haircut appointment since moving to Orlando. My hair was EXTREMELY long and I nervous about it getting “trimmed”. Anytime scissors gets near it I feel like hyperventilating and stress way too much. Well, I came here, and was very happy with the result. First, Helene, a very sweet, bubbly and talented stylist, greeted me. We both agreed that I needed more cut off than what I did, and that I'd be back in a month for her to give me a nice shaping. But for now, she just cleaned up my ends and gave me a blow out. I was very happy with it! I was happy and felt very welcome here. I'll update my review once I get my next cut and dry, but in the meantime, don’t hesitate about booking an appointment here! You're in good hands. Oh, one more thing - for all you guys out there, my fiancée came here for a cut and style and Blake did his hair - he LOVES it, and it looks great! We are going to be meeting with them soon to talk about our entire wedding plans and needs. A+
I was married in October of 2012 on the beach in Pass a Grille, Fl. I was very concerned on finding someone to do my hair and makeup. I have very straight, fine, thin, long hair and it is difficult to work with. I wanted a style that was beachy, loose curls and romantic. I wanted my makeup to be on the natural side yet glamorous. I got all of that and more. They made me hair extentions for volume and a bit more length. The were FABULOUS!! My hair stayed all night and my makeup was flawless. I have NEVER been more pleased with a salon from start to finish. They also made the entire wedding party including the mothers look gorgeous!! Their professionalism was great, they were knowledgeable, they listened and they gave me the miracle I needed. They also traveled the 2 1/2 hour trip to location. I highly recommend this salon for your wedding needs or any time you just need help looking your best.
SCAM Artists – Worst experience I have ever had! I will be taking them to court as they have absolutely ruined my hair. I bought a Keratin treatment from them. 5 hours into the process I realize they are putting a relaxer on my hair. They did this on purpose because Keratin is very expensive. 6 and a half hours I sat there for them to RUIN my hair. I have my wedding in June and because they wanted to save a few dollars by putting a relaxer in my hair, I have to go to someone else to fix it. I even gave them an opportunity to fix there mistake but they refused to tell me what kind of keratin they would be using on my hair. The owner kept running in circles telling me that I am not a professional and I would not even understand. I told her to go ahead and try me, just tell me what kind it is. I know professionals who could tell me, however, I think they were going to try something AGAIN. How can people be so unprofessional? I would NOT recommend this place unless you want to have a bunch of inexperienced shady people doing your hair. This was by far the worst experience I have EVER had with a place.
Best pampering! – I had the chance to have a day of pampering before meeting my family in Orlando. What a wonderful treat! The facial was the best tied with the best hair color experience I have ever had. The salon itself is laid back and comfortable. Everyone who works there is so nice! I plan to make the drive back for another facial and hair color renew!
Very Dissappointed – Was concerned when I first approached Hair Connoisseurs with their spray can writing on front windows. Surprised by clutter in salon and that it didn't look very clean. But what really disappointed me was that it took 7 hours to do a pedicure, manicure and hair color. Owner put me with a new graduate, which I must say did her very best to do nails, but just wasn't experienced enough. Don't know why owner did not just tell me from start that they were not able to accommodate the gel nails I wanted to do. This was a nightmare and I wont' even get into details. New graduated did a good job with my hair, but was now pressured near end of evening and probably was tired and may have done a better job if that was all she had to do. I know I was. In all my years of doing hair and nails, had I ever sat for 7 hours, I was hungry, tired and at end of evening just frustrated that I was there all day. What topped it off was Owner was very pushy with trying to get me to schedule another appointment with them and not even allowing me to express my thoughts of how I felt at the end of this day of beauty. I was in tears when I got home, I didn't feel good about my day of beauty and that I spent all that money. I will never go to this salon again, and if I was a bride that day...I would have been furious since I would have missed the wedding and the reception.
