Great salon/Great service – I have gotten so many compliments on my new cut and color that I just had to let everyone know and give some props to my stylist. I have been going grey for the last several years and have covered it from time to time, but never have really gotten a natural looking color, I actually was looking for a new salon and playing on google when I came across the salon review section, I was really impressed by one reviewers experience with Benji at Salon U, so decided to give it a try. The salon is very shiny and stylish, bright and inviting and the staff is incredibly friendly so I immediately felt like I had made the right choice. Benji greeted me and we talked for a while about my issues and what look I was going for and after a little back and forth and him showing me some picture we decided on a very stylish cut with lots of movement and shine. It was a little shorter than I usually go so I was a little nervous but I really wanted a new look overall. He colored and highlighted and cut my hair and it looks so good. It is a great cut and color and my grey is gone and covered naturally. I'm really sold on the Aveda line and Benji in particular he did a great job and I have already prebooked my next appointment with him. Him did a great job.
What an amazing experience!!! – I rarely write reviews for things like this but I just had such a great experience I had to share. I have just moved to the area from San Francisco and have been looking for a salon of the quality I am used to. Up until now my experience has been mediocre to say the least, but I really loved Salon U. It is such a beautiful salon, very stylish and clean and the staff was very friendly and was able to squeeze me in as a walk in. I met with my stylist Benji, we sat and chatted about my style, and color and the look I was going for. He was very friendly and conversational and seemed to really understand the look I was going for even tho I had a hard time explaining it myself. He brought me to his station and started the styling and we had such a great conversation. I did get a little nervous when he said he had recently graduated but it was unnecessary, the color was exactly what I wanted, and the cut is hip and stylish but still appropriate for my age and profession, I am really impressed. It turned out to be a superior experience and Benji is definitely my stylist from now on. I can't wait to go back. Thank you Benji and Salon U
First Class Service and Style – When I walked into Salon U I was greeted with a smile and friendly welcome. The space is bright and filled with art, sculpture and comfortable furniture. The Aveda products sit neatly on shelves that float along the walls. When I met with the stylist, Scott, who cut my hair I was ushered to a personalized consultation that was informative and exciting. The salons I've visited in Europe and my hometown of New York City have not spent the time and offered the attention I received at Salon U. But most of all the results speak for themselves: a great looking cut.
GREAT HAIR STYLIST – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LEZA AT SALON U IN HOMEWOOD. SHE HAS BEEN DOING MY HAIR FOR YEARS NOW AND I'VE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. SHE IS A MASTER WHEN IT COMES TO COLOR - SHE HAS REAL TALENT IN CHOOSING COLOR THAT IS VERY NATURAL & FLATTERING. SHE IS HONEST AND HAS A REAL GIFT FOR COMING UP WITH JUST THE RIGHT CUT AND STYLE. SHE ALWAYS HAS GREAT SUGGESTIONS WHEN YOUR LOOKING FOR A CHANGE. WHEN I LEAVE THE SALON I ALWAYS FEEL MORE RELAXED AND CONFIDENT IN THE WAY THAT I LOOK.
A unique and relaxing experience – I would like to inform everyone that the address listen for U in this directory is incorrect. The true address is 2824 Linden Ave. Homewood, 35209. Thanks from us at U, can't wait to see you!
The best Salon EVER! – This salon is amazing. I have gone there for five years now. The staff always knew my name. Even though they are excellent at what they do, I did not once feel that "stuffy-uppidy" thing that most salons that do what Salon U can do, give off. I feel in love with the staff not only because I knew I could go there and get an excellent hair cut, but that I would be able to relax and be myself. I have never had more people compliment me on my hair like they do when Melissa Christian at Salon U cuts it. I would highly reccomend her and Marc. They are both incredible.
Best Hair Salon in Birmingham but not for the budget minded – The stylists at Salon U are phenominal. I've never been to a Salon where more attention was given to detail. They actually listen to what you want and then guide you in the right direction. I always leave feeling great. Unlike many Salons I've visited in the past only to walk to my car and immediately brush out the style. However, don't go if your in a hurry. This kind of attention takes time and you will spend a better part of your morning there. They're services are expensive, but well worth the sacrifice. This is a high energy group with lots of enthusiasm.
