Terrible – If you want to look like a freak, all set to a techno beat, by all means, go here. If you'd like a decent haircut, go somewhere else. Staff is rude. They're overpriced and my hair ended up looking terrible. Thanks, but no thanks.
Great customer service and talented crew!!! – I got my hair done first by Jessie, and last time by Shannon and they always do a great job!
I have confidence in this salon, they have very talented stylist's on board.
My hair is very conservative, reflecting my profession, and I always get many, many compliments.
This salon is very convenient with easy parking.
If you are looking for a great hair for a reasonable price I would recommend Dream On.
AVOID THIS SALON IF YOU WANT YOUR HAIR TO LOOK GOOD! – I would not recommend Dream On Hair Studio to anyone who is looking to maintain a professional appearance. I walked in to the salon with very natural dark brown hair, and said that I would be interested in doing a few highlights, and wouldn't be opposed to a reddish tone. I told the stylist that I was looking for something subtle, because I work in a professional environment. She assured me that she would position them so they just "peaked out" underneath. I thought we were on the same page. A couple of hours later, I was shocked to see that I had huge chunks of fire engine red. These were not just highlights, but panel or blocks of color. It was not me at all, and certainly NOT subltle. So, I asked the stylist to correct the color. I ended up sitting there for an additional 2 1/2 hours and ended up leaving 5 hours later in tears. The color was horrible. In an effort to cover up some of the red, the sylist used a color called Cherry Cola. Cherry Cola turned the rest of my hair purple, leaving the red very bright. The owner of the salon knew that I was unhappy, but charged me full price anyway. The salon owner gave me her number, and I realized after the fact that it was not a full phone number. Devastated and mortified, I tried to reach the salon to fix my hair before Monday. Unfortunately, I had to go elsewhere to have my hair fixed on Sunday. This was a temporary solution. I finally reached the stylist on Monday, and said although I had it fixed, I was still unhappy. She said the soonest she could she me would be Saturday. I spent another $250 on Friday to have it double processed, with highlights and lowlights. I was happy finally with the result, but wanted to be compensated by Dream On for the disaster caused. I went in to speak with the owner Saturday. She called me a liar about having to spend the money that I did, and she told me that my hair looked "very bad." This was a devastating end to poor customer service experience.

Awesome Colorist! – I got my hair colored by Jesse and I have never been so happy with the results. I'm usually someone who keeps their hair a little more natural but I was ready to go out and try something new. So, with the help of Jesse I got hair color that I LOVE!
