Amazing Find ! – I have been getting my hair done in St. Louis even after I moved back to KC 2 years ago...I am obviously a loyal and picky client, but I decided that I needed to find a salon here in town...after much research and reading many reviews on many salons I found Stephanie. I have gone to her twice already (in the 4 months I have been here), I felt confident enough with her to make a big change, I cut 5 inches off to achieve the volume & body I was yearning for. I was extremely happy with the results. The second time I saw her she did my color and it was amazing, she mixed golden and blond highlights in my auburn hair and made it look natural without being boring. Besides being a talented hair artist she is also an amazing person to talk to and makes you feel at ease as soon as you sit down in her chair. The salon is small and charming, and it definitely one of the best kept secrets in KC..I am surprised there is not a waiting list out the door for this place. I wish I would have found her sooner and saved myself a ton of time and money traveling, I definitely recommend this salon and Stephanie.
Deva Cut !!! I'm in Love! Had to Share ! – I had my first hair cut at New Creations yesterday and fell in love. Ginger cut and styled my hair, but no worries, from what I can see, and have been told, all of the hair stylists at New Creations are experienced in cutting curly hair. They use the DevaCut (cut the hair dry, then shampoo/condition and cut some wet before styling)... Ginger knows a lot about curly hair care and can guide anyone in the right direction. I think the best way to know if a salon is good, is by the products they are selling in their store..they sell Deva, which is a major , natural curly hair care line and I was instantly at ease. (not to mention the atmosphere of the salon is completely relaxing) If you have been looking for a salon that specializes in curly hair, this is it. I never write reviews on salons, but this one is worth sharing.
Best haircut I've had... period!! Haircut phobia cured !! – I had one of the best experiences in the history of my hair at the New Creations Salon. As an apprehensive customer, my fear was quickly alleviated by Ginger's expertise. She considered the texture of my hair, facial structure, and style desire before giving recommendations, which turned into a great haircut. She is extremely knowledgeable about curls and took the time to explain each and every thing she did/ put in my hair, so that I could optimize my curls and be able duplicate the same effect at home. In addition, the atmosphere is much better than many other salons; everyone is friendly and attentive, a welcome change from previous experiences. Free bangs trims, great customer service and the perfect haircut what more could a girl want? Great place!
Reviews written by salon staff! – After reading many reviews I noticed that they began to sound alike and mention the same things. Then I began looking at the people who wrote the reviews and my hunch was confirmed. Every review I read (I stopped after about 15) had only reviewed the salon. No other reviews were written for any other business. This is the #1 sign of a fake review. Just an FYI.
I Asked..Stephanie Delivered! – I found this salon on this site....Thanks guys. I’m not a review writing person, but I have to share my wonderful experience. Stephanie is great. She did a excellent job on my color and the cut has yet to be outdone. She really took the time to talk to me about my goals and gave it to me and then some. I really noticed a difference with the natural hair color; my hair actually felt soft & shiny, not dry & frizzy like it can right after color. What a find! I’ve never even heard of a salon that specializes in curly hair? Wow! I really got an education on my curls and how to care for them, I feel in control of my hair instead of the other way around. When I arrived at the salon I felt comfortable and at ease right away. The salon is super cute and I was greeted with a smile. They seem to take pride in what they do and everyone seemed happy to be there (including the clients). Such a nice change from the normal salon experiences I've had. I highly recommend Stephanie!
Great Overall Experience - Finally found my salon ! – I travel with my job so I’ve had my hair done at many salons. I read the reviews on here and thought I’d check them out since they are literally 2 blocks away. Not only did they welcome me as a walk in, but I didn't wait long at all. I instantly fell in love with the warm neighborhood vibe, and friendly atmosphere that they have going on there. The conversations filled the room and was not only isolated between stylist and client, but it seemed as if from a scene in a movie, that everyone talked freely, and openly amongst each other as if we all were long time friends. Conversations varied from where's good to eat in the neighborhood, to thoughts on the long term effects of global warming. Truly an unexpected brightness to the not so bright day I was having.
Brittany is a not only a seasoned & amazingly talented stylist, but also a great listener, and worked with me through my lack of being able to describe what exactly I wanted to do with my hair. Together we put together what usually is usually impossible for me to have...... a great haircut.
I was no farther than 1 block away, before I got my first of many compliments on my hair, which only reassures me of my opinion. By far the best I’ve found. I truly enjoyed my salon experience; I’m excited for my color appointment in 2 weeks!
Great Salon – A coworker recommended this salon to me. I had gone to 2 places to get my highlights done and had not been happy with the results. I walked in and was greeted by friendly faces. I thought the salon was cozy feeling and super cute. To be honest I didn't really care, as long as I liked my hair. I had been referred to Lindsey, and I have to say I LOVE my hair for the first time in a LONG time! She listened to what I wanted, and helped make it happen. Not only does it look great, it feels better and is much easier for me to style. I will definitely recommend her to friends, and I will be going back. I hope this is helpful to others looking for a salon with good stylists.
I found my curly hair hero – Wow! This was not just a haircut but an experience that made me feel special and cared for. I have very difficult, curly, frizzy & big hair. I have never liked my hair. I esp. hate trying to find a stylist; I thought I just had bad hair. Brittany took the time to ask me lots of questions, my preferences & goals of course but also my lifestyle & habits. She wanted to find the perfect hairstyle for me. She is truly an artist with a passion for what she does, not easy to find these days! Everyone was so great from reception on, they made me feel comfortable and pampered. She took the time to show me how to dry and style my difficult hair! She even sent me home with free samples of products to try (which I love). Wow, I left feeling fantastic! This is the BEST hair experience ever from start to finish. I no longer feel my hair is difficult; I just needed to find Brittany. That night by boyfriend couldn’t stop telling my how great I looked. I feel so much more confident now; it has truly changed my life. I will never go anywhere else! Just a wonderful find!
Great Salon ! Amazing Cut & Color ! – This is a perfect example of professional, talented, and friendly stylists who make you feel welcome as well as look great! I found the staff to be respectful and fun with each other as well as their clients. You can always tell when people love what they do, It was very apparent. Lindsay is a great stylist; she listened, asked many questions and gave me exactly what I wanted. Usually I’m pretty nervous when I go to a new salon, but I was completely relaxed & felt unusually confident I was in great hands during my appointment. Was I ever! I LOVE my hair. The cut is amazing and my color is gorgeous. The best part of all was that she showed my how to style it at home. My hair feels great (not dried out from color) and is so easy to work with. Lindsay was great and I can’t wait to go back. I have had SO many compliments on my hair.
THANK YOU LINDSEY! I feel like I have more hair again! – Lindsey gave me an awesome color that I have been trying to get colorist to create for years. Plus she was able to give me some deminsion and a great cut that made my thinning hair look much fuller. I just looked them up online and went off of the reviews and was not disapointed with the service.
There was one part of the color that I didn't like after we were finished and she happily went back in and fixed it and washed and dryed me again! Now it's perfect!
I admit the atmosphere wasn't as 'posh' as some of the ladies on here said...I imagine those negative reviews were from ladies who would have been more comfortable at an older salon, but especially if you consider yourself young and hip the casual atmosphere won't bother you.
CON: price...for me it was a little high...$100 with a coupon for highlights and trim, but I realize that can be normal around here...and honestly...the result was worth it. They no longer honor that offer on their myspace for a free cut with color...FYI.
