Great looking, effortless hair cuts – Your hair will look perfect in a natural, effortless kind of way. Shawn is probably one of the best hairdressers in the country. Also, his product recommendations are right on target. Tell him specifically what look you're after and why.......you will most likely get it. Oh, and I wouldn't care if I had to ride there on a tricycle. Parking? Had to walk about 5 blocks to get my hair done in Seattle.
I would never let anyone else touch my hair- Best Salon!! – Two of my friends are hair models for Paul Mitchell and one day they took me to one of his salons in Downtown Nashville. The stylist turned me- a brunette- blonde with foils. I was happy with it at first, but once it started to grow out, my hair looked awful. My mom, who has been a client of Shawn's for quite some time now, sent me to his salon for damage control. When I walked in, I was welcomed and felt secure in Cerrito's hands. He uses a very rarely used technique called Baliage, which makes one's hair look natural (for a brunette going blonde this is very important). I have now been going to the salon for almost a year and will NEVER go anywhere else. In fact, I moved to Cincinnati recently and still drive the four hours just to come see them. Everyone that works there is totally professional and knowledgeable about what's in style and what looks best. Take my word, once you experience Shawn's salon you will never want to go ANYWHERE else.
Great Customer Service – I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Shawn Venezia Salon. I have been searching for a salon who uses the "Balyage" technique. I found that person. His name is Cerrito. The customer service was excellent, the salon offered a terrific new environmen, and, the work is exceptional. Cerrito definitely knows his stuff. The color and cut was so refreshing I feel like a new person. I highly recommend anyone to book an appointment and experience what I did.
Not a natural look with Balayage – Although, Balayage is suppose to look very natural looking and less maintance than traditional highlighting techniques. At Shawn Venezia that is the complete opposite of how my hair looks. I went to the salon because of this technique and now I am worse off than I was with traditional natural foils. To sweeten the deal, it was very over priced and I am very unhappy about my hair. At this point I give up and I am going to have to wait for my hair to grow out. I will NEVER go back and want others to know, if you want a natural look with Balayage this isn't the place.
Best hair color in town – A friend I had met when I first moved to Nashville and was planning my wedding recommended Shawn to me. He is the best in town!!! I even worked at another salon and tried going to Shawn. I went back to the salon I worked at (hey, it was free!) but my hair looked awful. Shawn is the only person I've ever had who can actually get my blonde highlights perfect. And he styles my hair perfectly! Definitely worth the money and I will never go to anyone else!
Absolutely The BEST Hair Stylist in Nashvile & Maybe in the COUNTRY! – Having grown up in the Nashville area I've been to many stylists in my teenage years, and I was NEVER happy with my hair. I have very thick, curly frizzy and fine hair. . . not an easy client for any hair stylist.
The first time I went to Shawn, he completely changed my feeling about my hair. He simply knew how to cut it properly, so I went to him for many years of WONDERFUL HAIR. About 1.5 years ago I moved to Chicago, and I began the search for a new hair stylist. . . I've interviewed MANY and haven't found anyone who understands my hair. I finally settled on a salon that was supposed to be one of chicago's best, and I had a girl there cut my hair for the last year. . . PATHETIC OUTCOME. In fact, I spent at least an hour trying to get my hair to look presentable every time I styled it.
Finally, I flew back to Nashville for shawn to "fix" my hair style. WOW, I knew I missed him, but I didn't know how much. He is not just a stylist. . . he's an artist AND a technician. My hair is back to NORMAL. . . I don't have to spend an hour of frustration trying to look presentable. . . It just falls into place.
For those of you who think a hair cut is too expensive. . . let me just tell you. . . I would STAND IN LINE and pay $100 for Shawn to cut my hair after having to search for a new stylist. . . he's the best in Nashville and likely one of the best in the country. IN fact, I'm going back to Nashville for a visit, and yes, I'm going to see Shawn!
Shawn is fabulous – I will never let anyone else on this planet touch my hair besides this man. I found him when I complimented two people on their hair in the space of a year (hey, I'm picky). They both mentioned Shawn's name. It is a rare day that someone doesn't compliment me on my own hair now and I owe it to him. He is a rare find and does not do the bad highlights that are everywhere these days. His work is perfection. Highly, highly recommended!
insaneangel – I first met Shawn 6 years ago through my Aunt Linda. He cut and colored my hair for the first time ever in my life. I loved it! Since then I have let a couple beautians touch it and it turned out gray. I am extremely picky about my hair, it is down to my waist, you have to be very careful with long hair. Even though I have to drive almost 75 miles, Shawn is the only person who will ever touch these locks again!!! Ever!!!
want to experiment? – i've had shawn do my hair several times at his old salon in bellevue. he's wonderful at trying new things, such as colors, cuts and styles. he is also good at simple if that is what you want. shawn is very talented.
