WORST SALON IN TOWN: FALSE POSITIVE REVIEWS!! – This salon doesn't deserve 1 star....I came in deciding to donate my hair to cancer. So i was going from a long cut to a shorter cut. I asked for no layers and having my hair about an inch off my shoulders.....what did I end up with??? I had layers on one side of my hair and not the other and it looked awful. I had to come in again to get my hair cut and she just made it worse. Some "stylist" with short blonde hair with pink. Seriously?? Where did you go to beauty school online?? Zing hires rude and inexperienced "stylists" I payed 55$ for a horrible haircut. Overpriced...Great Clips has better stylists....Best part!! I had to go another salon and the stylist did an amazing job but she said that it will take around 8 weeks to fix my cut. I should have asked for my money back..
WHO ARE THESE SO CALLED STYLISTS? – lets be honest here. I thought I read some good reviews about this so called SALON!!!! I was sadly mistaken. 5 stars YEAH RIght. The walls look like pepto bismol and the bathroom looks like a strip joint! The stylists are rude and dishonest and only there to make their money. They could care less about the customers or what WE as the clients want. I forgot what stylist i had all i know is my hair cut and color looked like a 3 year old did it. I could have went to great clips and got a better cut and style then this strip JOINT!!! I went in last week because i was leaving to go back home to see my family and i had to go back looking AWFUL thanks to my AWFUL stylist. And not to mention WHERE IS THE OWNER OR BOSS???? The receptionist or whoever Jennie is , was RUDE INCOMPETANT AND didnt give a crap about the clients or the needs of anything else but her dog!!!!!!
I love Joy – I am new to Boulder and was so surprised by this salon. I happenned into the salon on a busy Saturday with my two tween girls and we want ear piercings. Joy was so kind to my girls and did a great job. I booked with her the following week for a cut and highlight. Well trying a new stylist is always a challenge and I was thrilled with my perfect haircut and truly amazing highlights. In fact I must say these were the best highlights I have ever gotten. Thanks Joy for really helping me transition to Boulder. I appreciate you:)
AWFUL – i went to get my haircut last week by Jenny. i was new and looking for a good price, I saw the reviews and for the most part I thought i would give it a shot. During my haircut she could care less to listen and pretty much just did what she wanted. I specifically said i wanted a senior hair stylist NOT SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN DOING HAIR FOR A YEAR AND THINKS SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING. I had to go pay again to get my hair fixed at a more expensive salon, granted it was 150% better. All in all she was rude, my hair cut is completly un even, choppy, and the hole staff seemed like 20 year olds running it.
DONT GO TO ZING OR AT LEAST JENNY!
BEST Salon in Boulder! – I've lived in Boulder for 6 years and tried a lot of different salons before I found Zing. Not only does Zing give the BEST haircuts in town (all my friends go there and rave about their haircuts), but they are also the most fun salon I've ever seen, and have the friendliest professional staff. They really listen to me, give me great recommendations and give fantastic haircuts. I would definitely recommend Zing to anyone who is considering a new style, wants recommendations for what would look good, or for anyone who knows what they want and just want a great haircut and a great experience. You will be happy that you went to Zing.
Great Service GO HERE!!! – I am from Austin, TX and I have always gotten my hair done every week because I have African-American hair. I perm it every 6-8 weeks and since I've been here, I have not found anyone to do it...UNTIL NOW!!! Joy did my hair and she knew EXACTLY what she was doing, not to mention she was super sweet! I have dry scalp because the climate here is so gnarly and she cleared that right up. My hair has never been so silky in Colorado before and she totally made my week. I am definitely going back and if you have African-American hair especially, please go here! I was about to give up on Boulder, but there is one place that knows what to do and that's Zing Salon! :)
Never Again – Being from out of town, I have tried several salons here in Boulder and this Salon unfortunately stands out as the worst.Not only did I have to wait almost 20 minutes after my schedule appointment time to begin, I am completely dissapointed with the results. I was looking for a little more than a trim, 2 inches to be exact, off my hair and am horrified as to how it turned out. My hair is completely uneven, my hair was cut straight across on the ends making it noticeably uneven, and the layers (when looked at by another stylist from another salon the next day) were completely off. I can say that this is the worst haircut I have ever recieved.
When I attempted to reach the Salon to express my dissapointment and frustration I was met without any appropriate compensation. The first thing I was told was that they didn't do "refunds" but instead "guaranteed" their haircuts for up to five days. I do not understand this policy for the reason that I am so unhappy with my service that I will never return to the Salon and cannot believe they expect clients to in order to receieve some sort of compensation. I would never let another stylist there work on my hair. It was completely inappropriate and shows a lack of customer service. I was so unhappy with my service and how my complaint was handled that I ended up going to another salon the next day to try and "fix" it and ended up having to have more inches cut off however am now pleased with the care and attention I recieved there.
I would never recommend this Salon to anyone after my experience. Awful customer service and it was very apparent that there was a lack of care and attention with my haircut which is unacceptable. Sadly, never again...
Great for regular cuts, or trying something new! – Zing is a fun, funky salon right downtown - super easy location for me to get to, and can run right out to happy hour after! I have been seeing Rachel for a solid 2 years now and look forward to going in every time. It's like visiting a girl friend, and she always totally gets what I am going for. We've tried some fun new styles together and I always just trust her opinion, and it always comes out great!
Nine months to grow out worst haircut I have ever had – This salon should not be rated with five stars. I honestly wondered when I left if my stylist was high or durnk. I left with most of my hair sticking straight up due to over texturizing. About one month later, I had to cut 8 inches of length off, and it is only in the last month or so that the hairs that were cut WAY too short are inconspicuous. Without even telling the stylist I went to in Boulder to fix this disaster, she knew exactly where I had gone. Zing has a terrible reputation with sylists in Boulder, and for good reason. I have (had) long straight hair, and the cutting "technique" was completely inappropiate for my hair type - in fact, Aveda salons do not even allow it to be done. Please, stay away.
fun salon in boulder! – I have been going to Rachel Fox for a long time. She is now working at Zing salon in Boulder. The salon has a fun atmosphere and an up-beat staff. Rachel is very creative and thorough. I change my hair about once every three months and have a hard time verbally expressing what is in my mind. Rachel always knows exactly what I want. I have extremely curly/frizzy hair which I have struggled with my whole life. Rachel knew exactly what treatments to use on my hair without damaging it. Since I started going to Rachel my hair has been in the best condition that it has ever been! My hair used to be my least favorite feature, worn most in a ponytail or bun. Thanks to Rachel I wear it down and feel beautiful every day! I love Zing but will continue to follow Rachel to whatever salon she works at :-)
