Melissa is AMAZING! – As a stay-at-home Mom (with one on the way) and entrepreneur, I love my babies and my business to but I truly look forward to the occasional "me" time! I have been going to Melissa for several years now after truly finding her "by accident" and I have never been more confident in any stylist I have ever had. She has NEVER disappointed. She is personable, competant, knowledgeable, and experienced, and truly listens to what I want and communicates my options with ease. It's easy to refer people to Melissa as I'm constantly receiving compliments on my hair style/color from friends, business associates, and mostly perfect strangers! I walk out of the salon feeling relaxed, refreshed and truly rejuvenated ready to conquer the world...I feel like a million bucks! She even cuts my 2 year daughter's long and curly hair (which I thought for sure would be a disaster considering my daughter doesn't sit still very long!) But Melissa is so wonderful with kids and my daughter absolutely LOVES "Sissa"! I actually have a hard time getting her to leave! :)
Thanks to Melissa for providing a much-needed spa experience for a busy Mom on the go...I may stay briefly but it truly feels like a long (and much needed) weekend retreat! :)
cassie is the way to go – i knew cassie in high school, and she was so involved in every hair class she took and enjoyed doing all different hair styles for her class, I never had a regular hair dresser, or a style to my hair, so I went to cassie and told her i wanted style yet I wanted my hair to be simple enough to wear back in a pony tail, she knew exactly what would work for me so i trusted her, and she did an amazing job! I absolutely love my hair cut, she has a real passion, I told my mother about her, and now my mom also goes to her, my mom has extremely thick hair, and cassie thins it out perfectly, Ive never seen my mothers hair look so nice, cassie is just great!
Trendy in Reading – Every time I have come to this salon im greeted with smiles and hellos. I always feel comfortable and relaxed with all the staff.
Cassie Pinkham who is one of the main stylists always knows what i want. Since I have extentions shes even better because she also has them. With her skills at cutting, styling, coloring and putting in extentions I always leave feeling like a star.
Her experence with different hair types is a plus because i have biracial hair she know produts and tells you all the information on how to use them.
I can also say if the salon is ever to busy they still fit me in with Melissa who is amazing with her color and styles
All in all i love this trendy salon and recommened it to all my friends!!!
Afabulous Trendy Salon in Reading – Cassie always gives me a great cut and color and now my oldest daughter goes to her too. I use to go into Boston which I loved, but the cost to park and the time I needed to block off was costing me too much. A customer had recommend Salon Fringe and I am so grateful because it is a trendy Boston Salon in Reading and it doesn't cost to park! Cassie will even see you for a hair washing and style. Trust me, with the fabulous head massage she provides, seeing her will be a mini vacation! You can even take the train out of Boston to this place and do some shopping at the quaint shops in town.
You want the best? Ask for Cassie! – I am Irish and Jamacian and with my combination hair type I've found a lot of stylists not knowing how to handle my hair. Cassie taught me how to be more comfortable with wearing my hair both curly and straight. She took the time to explain to me how to appreciate the best of both worlds with my hair. On a specific day I walked in and Cassie asked what I wanted to do. I wasn't happy with myself and I said do anything, just make me look and feel different. Cassie did beautiful red violet highlights and a Brazialian blowout. She turned me around to face the mirror and I was in shock! It was me but more beautiful than I had felt in years! Now, not only do I appreciate my hair type, but I look and feel beautiful. No more salon hoping for me, Cassie is my stylist for life.
Cassie has a great eye for style so if you are getting you hair done and want some ideas for a great look for a night out or any event she has a million pointers!
Cassie is great! – I've been jumping around salons for a while and I came in for an updo at the recommendation of a friend and I keep going back. I get cuts, updos, color, everything always comes out great. No matter what I ask for, Cassie knows how to put her own spin on it and make it come out amazing. I have never had a bad experience and I'll keep going back!
Waste of time – My first visit was just for color. The young lady who colored my hair was nice enough but after waiting a half hour the receptionist asked who I was again ( I was the only one in the waiting area). What should had been a 45 min. coloring job was 1.5 hrs. So I stupidly go ahead and book an appointment 6 weeks later with Gary, the owner, for color and cut. The day before my appointment the salon calls and cancels it because Gary is going to his son's orientation. Couldn't see that coming ahead of time? No effort was made to accomodate my schedule on such short notice. Gary wasn't going to be put out on the next date I could schedule because he is already booked.
Any business that has such little regard for my time doesn't deserve my business.
Melissa gave me a great cut! – I was in need of a change and decided on Salon Fringe mainly out of convenience. The salon itself quite nice. Melissa is great. She first discussed with me what I wanted then made suggestions and, most importantly, gave me a great cut. I plan on going back.
Best Salon in the area – Whenever I go to Salon Fringe to have my hair done, the feeling I get is…”There’s no other place that I should be at this moment!” The décor is modern, yet classical, beautiful, relaxing and fun. When I go, the owner Gary performs magic on my hair. He listens to what I want, but then puts his own spin on it and it comes out great…even if I change my mind in the process. My hair is really thick, long and curly. It takes a special cut to make the curls lay just right otherwise it looks like a mess. Believe me when I say that I have had some bad haircuts in the past, but when I leave Gary and Salon Fringe it never looks better. I must drive Gary crazy with how often I want to change colors, but Gary always knows what will work for me and what won’t. I have received more compliments on my hair color since I started seeing Gary. “Your hair looks awesome…You should always be this color”…Even my boys ages 7 and 9 like going to the salon. Having one of the girls wash and massage their hair is like heaven to them.
I really can’t say enough about Salon Fringe in Reading and Gary. I will never go to another hairdresser again.
Thanks so much to all of the staff at Salon Fringe.
