This is a thoughtfully-designed, clean, spa-like salon in a good location with easy parking. My haircut is definitely one of the best I've ever had. I appreciated the stylist considering my age, height, head shape and face shape before making recommendations after I offered my usual "I'm not sure what I want". High quality products are used and the shampoo experience was supreme and included a lovely, totally relaxing head massage. I look gorgeous, too. :-)
As a TV news anchor for ABC11, having the right color and style is very important to me (as it is to most of us women!) And as a natural dark brunette, lifting my hair to blonde has proven challenging for many stylists. In the 2 and a half years I've been in the area, I haven't found a stylist I was satisfied with, that is until I met Lisa at Joule salon! She worked with me to accomplish the color I wanted that would be easiest for me to maintain. And, she helped makeover my look with a new haircut, and she showed me how to style my hair in a more contemporary look. I couldn't have been more thrilled with the look. And since then I've been getting compliments from viewers and coworkers alike! I would personally recommend Lisa to any of my friends or colleagues.
I've found a home at Joule Salon. When I relocated to Cary from New York, finding a good stylist was as important to me as finding a good doctor! I searched for a year before finding Lisa, the owner of the salon. We have developed a relationship over the years, and she always listens. She values continuing education and travels each year to learn the latest techniques and trends in cutting, coloring, and styling hair. She's been able to cut my hair short when I've needed something new, and then when I change my mind, she gives me great cuts as it grows longer. Lisa has also taken the time to teach me how to replicate the polished look that I have when I leave the salon when I do it myself at home.
I can be a very hard to please customer, and Lisa will go above and beyond to make sure that I am happy. The salon is sophisticated and elegant, and the staff is warm and welcoming. Not only do I get a great cut and color, but I'm pampered. I'm never without coffee or something cold to drink. If I'm hungry, they get out the menus and go out to get me lunch. When I'm shampooed, my feet are up and I get a great scalp massage. I love Joule Salon and I highly recommend Lisa and her staff.
Very unhappy today when I drove 25 miles for a hair appt only to find out after I got there my stylist was no longer there. I told her at the front desk who I was there to see and she had me change and then tried to give me someone else. I feel it was a very tricky move on their part. If she would have told me when she called to confirm my appt. I probably would have gone with someone else. Didnt trust them at this point. Not a good way to treat customers. I left.
Joule Salon is AWESOME !! – Lisa has been cutting my hair for over 2 years. - She is amazing and always knows just what to do with it to make it look great. She is up on the current trends and styles. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants great looking hair !!!
Making the World Beautiful, One Head at a Time – I've lived through just about every hair trend you can think of. Remember the 80s? Permed hair that made you look like your neighbor's ugly poodle? Then there was the Rachel, the short Bob, the long Bob, the shaggy Bob, etc. Yes, I tried them all, and unfortunately have the photos to prove it. Those days are over. Lisa has been styling my hair for over 10 years. There is no one better in the area. You will walk out of her salon feeling and looking like a million bucks. If you are smart, you will sit in her chair and let her do whatever she thinks is best. Her ideas are always so much better than what you had in mind. She is the professional, so listen to her. Lisa will make you beautiful, and isn't that what we all want?
Just What I Needed! – I'm about the pickiest customer when it comes to finding a stylist. I want my cut to be stylish, low-maintenance and attention-getting. After trying 5 salons in Cary, and the last one totally botching a simple cut, I called Joule. I was in dire straights after wearing a baseball hat for 2 days to hide the worst haircut I'd ever received.. The owner, Lisa, scheduled me immediately w/Andrea and treated me like a VIP customer.
Andrea not only fixed my cut, but did it beautifully. I've become a regular customer and am even doing highlights now (which with dark hair is no small feat!) The color looks so natural, hiding the beginnings of grey hair so well that I'm looking at going lighter still next month:-)
If you're looking for a new stylist, new look, or just moved to the area, I would call Joule. Great environment and they really LISTEN to what you need.
Be the best you can be each and every day! – As stylists and people pleaser’s we strive each and every day to make our clients look and feel beautiful. We travel, train, and we bring back to the salon new trends that you see in magazines. We then take this inspiration and recreate these trends on our clients.
I recently spent two days training with Celebrity Stylist Ted Gibson from the TV show “what not to wear”. He mentioned to me over dinner that after teaching the class he went back to his room and was depressed because he felt he did not create his best work for us.
I was stunned that a stylist who works on celebrity’s and models could feel this way. I applauded him for his honesty. It also showed me he was human. As an artist when we create we put ourselves out their to be judged. All we can do is to be the best we can be each and every day in every situation.
Definitely not artistry.... – After the many positive reviews I thought it would be safe to try a new salon having recently moved to the area. Lisa was very conversational, the salon is very nice in a good location and products are good quality. I'd asked for a trim, in addition Lisa had suggested thickening up my bangs. Sorry to say I am very disappointed with the results... The style of my hair is now like a young 'kid' style - straight across the bottom, nothing taken off of layers to thin them out, no graduated layering put back in after the length was taken up but worst of all the bangs... I have bang length hair now on the sides of my head about a third the way back from my face. They look bluntly cut and sit out on top of the longer layers - it's almost like some just hacked up a pieces of my hair by accident or that I have a hair hat or something on me. Not sure what happened here, Lisa herself was surprised and did not charge which I guess was decent. But I'd much prefer to pay and have a good hair style, an actual style, rather than this 'chopped' mess. Disappointing experience, total let down, now a bad hair cut to contend with, let grow for several months and find a good hair stylist....
Artistry for your hair – Going to Joule Salon is truly an experience. To call Lisa a hair stylist would be a huge understatement. She is an artist, who takes the time to really look at your features ad talk with you about what you want to accomplish on your visit.
I always feel rejuvenated when I leave Joule and strongly recommend you go see Lisa and find out for yourself just how unique the Joule experience can be.
