Always a great experience – I'm new to Durham and found the Garden Salon through Citysearch. The reviews were great and it was conviently located so I gave it a try. It's always scary to find a new stylist but I have been so happy here. Kristen has been doing my hair for awhile now and she has never let me down. In fact, I'm delighted with the way she cuts and styles my fine limp hair. It looks full and sassy now! I also love being able to schedule my own appointments on line - how convienent. And all of the amenities at the salon from the drink they offer you when you enter to the pampering until the moment you leave. I highly recommend this salon. Enjoy!
Excellent Hair Salon – I highly recommend the Garden Salon. The stylists are skilled, they use great products, the prices are reasonable and the scheduling is easy. I think their customer service skills are the best I've ever come across in a salon. The women who schedule the appointments are so genuinely nice. I have been a client for over a year and I won't go anywhere else. They are really great about educating you about how to style your hair yourself. I always leave there feeling gorgeous.
Erin is great! – I got a really great, trendy cut with Erin several months ago before my best friend's wedding. It really looked wonderful. You can tell when a hair stylist knows how to cut hair when your cut can begin to grow out and still look great. Unfortunately, being totally lazy on my part, I got a hair cut recently from another place, which was just not as good as at The Garden Salon. I'll definitely be making the drive back to Durham for Erin's work!
Going long to short? Ask for Brittney! – Got my hair chopped off and love love love it! Sometimes a dramatic change is difficult, but Brittney did an amazing job. I just gave her a picture of a haircut I liked and she made it work for me!!! This was my first time getting my hair cut by her too.
I have been a customer at the Garden Salon for 2 years now and have always loved the services that I have gotten and my stylist Kellie! Recently the salon has started to offer the new Brazilian Keratin Straightening Treatment that I have been dying to try! My stylist Kellie had it done to her hair with great results so I decided to give it a chance. I had always been turned off by other straightening treatments because they are so damaging to hair and you have to keep up with your growing out roots. I got this keratin treatment done last week and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! It is a little on the expensive side but worth every penny! I have LOTS of hair that is coarse and curly with a frizz to it. When I did blow my hair out straight it would take me a good hour at least if I hurried, usually an hour and a half normally. I washed my hair today for the first time since getting the treatment (you can't wash your hair or do anything with it for 4 days after the treatment to let the keratin set it) and it only took me 15 minutes to dry and pass a straightener thought it a couple of times. My hair is smooth and the softest it has ever been! The keratin washes out so I will never have to keep up with my roots! The results are amazing and Kellie wasn't lying that I would love it! I recommend this treatment to anyone with hair that is hard to manage, curly or frizzy. It's the best and I wish I had done it sooner!
New Address: 2608 Erwin Rd, Durham 27705 – The Garden Salon is great. Shea cuts my hair and does a great job and is always fun to talk with. Also, the new location is really nice. It's on Erwin Rd near Duke hospital next to the TGI Fridays. If you haven't been before give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
Oh, and for full disclosure: Shea's my wife. ; )
Also make sure that you have the new address: 2608 Erwin Rd, Durham 27705. Citysearch can't seem to get the address right (we've begged them to fix this for almost a year).
great haircuts & great price – I love the Garden (although they have seince moved, to Erwin Rd by TGI Friday's). Erin cuts my hair and she rocks.
Great Cut! – I recently moved to town, and have been seeking a new stylist. I saw the Garden Salons' website, thought it looked nice and decided to check it out. I called and was able to get an appointment with-in a few hours. Justina was great and helped me to understand how my hair would look its best, and gave me great styling tips!!! I LOVE my hair and i loved the upbeat atmosphere of the girly pink salon! I will definately be back!
KATE ALLEN IS A WORLD CLASS STYLIST – Kate Allen is an OUTSTANDING hair care professional.
She asked me expert-level questions which contributed greatly to my excellent hair cut, color and style experience today.
She has a great personality, put me right at ease, asked me what I wanted and she took the time to understand what I was looking for.
She gave me style books to help me pinpoint the kind of style I wanted to try. I have been EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED in the past with previous stylists here in Durham. No one seemed to know how to cut and style wavy and curly hair. Other stylists kept cutting my hair too short, or they hacked it, leaving it very uneven, and they had no clue how to style it.
Kate changed all that. Kate even presented me with hair swatches so that I could choose the color I wanted. She gave me a conditioning treatment which I needed and wanted. She was very conservative in cutting my hair so that I could consent every step of the way to what she was doing.
She styled it better than ANYONE HAS EVER STYLED IT. THE COLOR IS PERFECT.
She showed me how to style it. She recommended products which I bought immediately. She recommended hair care products like a flat iron and hair dryer for my specific hair needs.
Kate was OUTSTANDING and for the first time in 2.5 years, I AM THRILLED WITH MY HAIR! I feel like a new woman. I am going to go out and go dancing-MY HAIR IS READY TO GO! THANK YOU KATE!
Folks, I have had many people cut my hair over 40 years. I even worked at a salon. KATE IS AN EXPERT. IF YOU WANT YOUR HAIR TO LOOK ITS BEST, CALL HER.
A VERY HAPPY PERMANENT CUSTOMER
I always love my hair! – I've been driving from Raleigh for over a year to have Shea cut and color my hair. She's not afraid to give suggestions when I don't know what I want. I love change and she makes sure each hair-cut is different. She's the best!
