L Designs saved the day!!!!!!!!!!!! Hair & Makeup fell through the afternoon before a wedding - L Designs made space for the whole bridal party the next day, crafted beautiful hair, brought in a make up artist, provided champagne, snacks, darling decorations and gave the bride an emergency pack of beauty goodies! It cannot be said in words how wonderful it was to be pampered by such a place, on such short notice too! Thank you L Designs! This salon is highly recommended for your next big event!
BEST SALON IN CT!!! – I moved here from NY this summer looking for a salon that would match the level of the ones in NY. I did a ton of research and found Linda at L Designs. I was looking to replace my then-current hair extensions, and had read many glowing reviews about Linda and her salon. I decided to do a consultation with her in July, and was extremely impressed by her professionalism, knowledge, and the time she took to really look at my hair and determine what would be best. It was fragile due to medication, and the sew-in weft extensions that I had become accustomed to had actually been wreaking havoc on my natural hair. She suggested an alternative of placing strand-by-strand i-link extensions and I decided to give it a try. A week later she installed the new extensions after very gently and carefully removing the old (very crucial!!), and they looked and felt very natural and beautiful. Now I go every 6-8 weeks to have them maintained, and although the process is an expensive one (extensions just are), I find the services to be well-worth it. She and her staff are so pleasant, and I feel very comfortable whenever I am there. At today's visit I had the opportunity to see Linda training and working closely on my hair with an apprentice, and was so impressed by her teaching and supervision, and also by the skills of her apprentice Nicole. They worked so nicely together, and I had all the confidence that Linda would ensure Nicole knew exactly what she was doing. I have had past experiences at other salons where this was far from the case, and with disastrous results! I have only good things to say about L Designs, and cannot understand why anyone would give them less than a stellar review. Linda makes sure that you go out feeling like you got what you wanted and came in for, and ensures that if anything at all isn't perfect the first time, that by the time you leave the salon it is. She always tells me to just stop in should I lose a strand or two of hair, and they'll just put em back in for me! I am so hapy that I found L Design, and would (and do) highly recommend it to anyone in need of a fantastic hair salon! I'm even planning on bringing my little boy to have his hair cut by Linda! Look no further if you want a high-quality, experienced group of stylists.
After reading the glowing reviews I decided to try out L Designs for a cut and hi-lights.
I took in a photo to show the color I was aiming for and style I wanted. I over emphasized the brassy color I did NOT want. Not only did my hair come out the exact brassy color I didn't want but it came out in chunky hi-lights which is not what I asked for nor what the photo showed.
Linda did attempt to correct and made the comment "I guess I misunderstood what you were asking for", but after being there for four hours on a Saturday morning I didn't have any more time to waste on having my hair blow dried. I was offered a free blow dry the next time I came in and Linda said she would call me to follow up on how I liked the color. The only call I received was a few months later asking if I would like to schedule another appointment as it had been a while since I'd been in.
Needless to say that was the one and only time I have been to L Designs and I will not be returning, ever. Didn't feel anyone really listened to what I wanted. While sitting there waiting for my color to take twice, I saw many older women come and go and all left with the same brassy hair coloring...guess this should've been my warning that Linda doesn't actually know how to do any other color than brassy.
Very, very disappointed in the entire experience. The only positive was the Keurig coffee maker and other staff members did seem very friendly.
Amazing Hair Extensions! – I have wanted longer, fuller, and more beautiful hair since I can remember so this summer I decided to take action. In Lebanon I had a have weft of hair that was unprofessionally put in so when i arrived back in the states I found L Designs on the internet and made an appointment with them to consult with me about my hair extensions. When I arrived to my appointment i was offered a beverage and snack and then sat down and had Linda look through my hair. I had so many questions and she had so many answers. Off the bat i was impressed with all the knowledge that she had about hair extensions. Before i left she put one piece in my hair just to see if i liked it and it stayed in right! This was an awesome way to make sure I was fine with them before making any purchases. Two weeks later i went in to have my hair extensions put in, like before any major hair change I was nervous and not only that but she had her whole staff there who was going to be watching me, taking notes, for the experience. But when I arrived her whole staff was so friendly and talkative my nerves immediatley calmed down. The application was professional, diligent, and didn't even take that long. Now I have longer, fuller hair and I couldn't be happier with my decision to go and trust L designs with my hair extensions.
Linda is the hair Master! – Linda! You saved my hair. I'm a recent transplant from So Cal and the worst part of leaving was not having my stylist. After suffering through two color disasters since I arrived in January 09 I finally found Linda. I'd come on a Friday less that 24 hours since my last hair disaster and looking like a Lynx and Linda assured me she could "salvage" the rainbow that was my hair. Lotions, potions, kneading, rolling and what can only be termed as the best head massage ever on the planet, she had, indeed saved my hair. She is the Queen of Color...the hero of Hair...the Titan of tresses....not to mention as sweet as can be. I'll see you in about 6 weeks. Thanks again!
