My hair is awesome! – I went into the salon last week and had kegan cut my hair (not the first time) and as always i asked him for something out of the box and he delivered! He has such a creative mind and always changes my hair up to something new and unique everytime! I would highly recommend him to everyone. Keep on kickin a$$ kegan!!
This Salon is a Grade A.... – This salon is an excellent and clean salon. Their sanitation grade IS posted bedhind th ereceptionist desk, for those of you who say it is not. They have an A and deserve that A. This is salon is very clean, friendly, upbeat, and great designers. Everyone that works at Kroma is awesome. The two reviews talking about this salon NOT being clean, they are very wrong and you should come check and Kroma for yourself. You will not be let down. This is a GREAT salon all around. Kroma keep rockin!!!!!
Just Facts – I totally agree with the "Not clean" review. At first, I thought it was just me. Apparently not.
You said: "I just wonder how many "clients" would actually even know that salon grades are even listed on the website. Seems like something only someone in the business would know."
And I just wonder what the Licensing Board would say after they read what you said? Doesn't the law require that the sanitation grade be posted in salons for the consumer, just like they do for restaurants?
Here is the fact: the sanitary rating for Salon Kroma of Raleigh is in the bottom 20% of salons in Raleigh.
You said: "We would love to have a 100, but if you research the website, you will see no one else does either."
Another fact: In Raleigh, there are at least 5 salons that have 100. A lot of them have 99 and 98.
So, please don't blame it all on competitors. Here is the message to anybody who is thinking of going there: "If you go to restaurants with low sanitary ratings, you have nothing to worry about!"
Our salon rating is posted...at the front desk. It is a Grade A. The State Board nor us, consider this a low sanitation grade. Grade A is 90 to 100. We fall within this range.
But the next time one of our clients that work for state board come in, I will confirm that Grade A is as high as it gets!
For anyone reading through these, please note, that while we do have a Grade A, other clients have posted comments about their satisfaction with their hair.
What a relief to find a great stylist! – For all you ladies out there who enjoy finding a new stylist about as much as a new bathing suit, this rating is for you! I can think of only a few things worse than trying to find a new stylist so I spent a lot of time talking to friends and looking at reviews when it came time for me to change stylists. I had heard great things about Salon Kroma and the reviews were mostly positive so I gave them a try. My stylist was Callie and I went in for cut, color and highlights. The salon is clean and orderly. The receptionist was friendly. Callie was professional in dress and manner. She asked me questions, showed me a color chart and we talked about how I styled my hair. The result is FABULOUS. The color is exactly what I wanted and the cut is perfect. While I was there, a lot of different types of people came through the door. Young, old, college students and professional people. Even a little girl of about 6. Everyone left looking great! So, I highly recommend Callie and Salon Kroma.
Highly Reccommended – My hair has never looked Better!! Rhonda does a fanastic job. Each time it gets better.. I can't believe the results..
Best in a long while... – I have never REALLY been happy with a triangle salon experience until now. Everything else around here seems a little too stifled and uptight. The atmosphere here is great and really makes you comfortable. The cut and shampoo Amy gave me was the best i've had since i stopped driving an hour out of town. I hope to go back very very soon. Thanks Amy, You ROCK!!!
We are very happy to have Amy on our team. Her creativity and talent are outstanding. Thank you for coming in and taking the time to post this!
Not Clean – I was shocked to see that the salon was not clean! They claim to be the best in the area, but when I looked at the health scores of hair salons on the Licensing Board web site, I found out that there are 513 salons in Raleigh, and only 95 salons - 18% - have a lower health rating than Salon Kroma!!! What a shame! I will not be going back!
Our rating is a 93-out of 100-that is a Grade A. You can go to the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetology website, and see all salon listings. We are not a B Grade salon, and the State Board goes through each salon with a fine tooth comb (if you will). We would love to have a 100, but if you research the website, you will see no one else does either. I just wonder how many "clients" would actually even know that salon grades are even listed on the website. Seems like something only someone in the business would know. If you would like to come in and go through the salon with me and make suggestions, I would be more than happy to accomadate you.
Thank you, Kim
Best Hair Salon in the Triangle – Salon Kroma is the best. I have a bad habit of waiting until the last minute and then I really need a cut and color. Kim fits me in so it works with my schedule. I will not let anyone else touch my hair. I have gone elsewhere and they only mess it up, so I came back to Kim. Dana takes very good care of my daughter and seems to know exactly what she needs also.
When my friend from New York visits, she even goes into Salon Kroma while she is here. They really are the best!!!
Love my haircut! – I met Callie during a training night, where my boyfriend volunteered to be a model for training. She asked me if I would come in for a subsequent training night and receive a free haircut. I was a little nervous, but Callie is very professional and friendly. She seemed very confident in what she was doing, so I felt comfortable. So far I've been back to Callie for haircuts ever since! I love the styles she has given me, and she explains what I need to do to keep my cut looking good once I get home. The atmosphere at Salon Kroma is fun and friendly, definitely not pretentions like some other places I have been over the years. I get compliments on my haircut all the time! I haven't had any color done yet, but I won't go anywhere else for a haircut, that is for sure!
Superb Classic Cut, Excellent Service – ***** Not sure why, but the site isn't letting me give five stars as I'd like. I highly recommend this salon.
Kim Jordan cut my hair in February when I was in Raleigh for a few days. It was a blunt cut for long hair that held a great shape for months. She went out of her way to help me set up the appointment, e-mailing me even late at night (I live in a different time zone) and when the salon closed for a rare snow day on the day of my appointment, she came in an hour early the next day to cut my hair. I think that's unusual and fantastic. It's dedication and talent like this that makes a great hair salon.
