I saw Andrea in February for color before my son's wedding in april. The atmosphere was great. It went down hill from there. My color washed out in a week. Rachael told me to come back but I decided I'd wait until my next appointment of April 1. Rachael called before app to say Andrea had court. I rescheduled for the 2nd. Rachael called to say ANDREA was still sick.
I am so frustrated. No one really cared how important this is to me.
Great Salon! Every time Sofiya does my hair I get compliments! This girl really knows her stuff! Every time I leave I feel young and refreshed! I would recommend her to everyone I know!
I am very happy with the service of this salon! The staff is great and they try to accommodate you in every way and make the most of your visit.
Dana is awesome. – Dana is pretty freaking cool, ok.
Like the other one said, she really cares about what YOU want and not what she thinks it's best. I've been to others and they're just like "Well, I don't really like to do that, so I'm not going too."
She's also super funny and does the best impression of the Teen Mom people, hahaha. She's fun to talk to and interesting.
I usually never return to the same salon, but I'd actually come back to this one and request Dana if I could.
But yeah, she's awesome ok.
Dana is awesome! – Dana is the best stylist a girl could ask for! I really love her haircuts; she is very commited to giving her clients what they seek. Bring lots of photos- she loves that and will be happy to discuss what you do or do not like. I once drove over 3 hours for her to cut my hair! The icing on the cake is that she is such a fun and sweet person!
Amazing! – Nikki is the best! The team is amazing....if you want the best hair in town...go here!
Thank you Nikki!
My experence : ) – Happiness is the feeling about the way your hair looks; if this dounds like you, Then you need to see Nikki at Gel Salon. Here you'll encounter someone with great talents in styling, trimming, and hair coloring. Most importantly, one of her greatest skills is LISTENING! When i first came to the salon I walked into a wonderful atmosphere of smiling faces and beautiful surroundings. Once i seated, Nikki took time to let me tell her what my needs and expectations were. She asked me quite a few follow-up questions, and it didn't take long before i felt that I was in caring and capable hands.
Never has my hair been so easy to manage; She has top billing in my book based on that fact alone. I was glad that she accommodated the needs I expressed. over the last few months she has suggested subtle changes that have really enhanced the style I initially had. Quite a few people have commented on the highlights of my hair. what an eye Nikki has for beautiful color, and she works her magic on me everytime I see her.
When I leave the salon, I feel like I've been with a good friend. I feel good, look great and i'm ready to face the world and its challenges again.
Her friendliness and compassion will put you at ease and you will feel like the two of you are a team working together to achieve perfection. Enjoy the massaging chairs whwen your ahir is washed. Leave Gel Salon with a good feeling inside and know that you have a great hairstyle to go woth it!

AWESOME Salon!!! – AWESOME Experience!! I had my hair colored on Friday night at Alter Ego Salon in Raleigh. When I arrived my hair originally was brown underneath with light blond highlights. I brought in a picture of color I wanted to achieve. The color in the picture was strawberry blonde with chunks of blond highlights. After 2 attempts and 4 ? hours at Alter Ego later it was a dark, dark brown. The color was horrible and not only was I completely dissatisfied and upset Dana Hunter the owner insisted I pay $92 for the service. My boyfriend has been going to Nikki Wilson for years. She opened her own salon a few years ago
Stylists you can trust – I have been with Nikki, the owner of Gel Salon, for over 15 years. She listens and takes my lifestyle into account when determining the best hair style for me . The compliments that I've received are many!
Previous to Nikki, I had some 'not-so-great' encounters and I'm thankful that I have found someone that I can trust. And.. she doesn't just rely on her talent.. she is always educating and challenging herself to become even better.
I also love her salon. It's a great atmosphere with wonderful amenities! Getting a hair wash while sitting in those wonderful massage chairs is so relaxing. I always leave feeling refreshed and renewed!
Lily is wonderful – I have consistantly gotten great color and cuts from Lily. The shampoo bowls are very comfortable. Good ambiance.
Amazing hair salon!! – I switched from haircolorexperts to this salon because all of my favorite stylist moved to this location. And it was a good decision. The stylists are amazing and listen to what you want. The owner Nikki is an extremly talented hair dresser as well!! I've gotten my hair highlighed by Paige and Julie, and would highly recommend both of them.
