Wow! I've read more bad than good! Never been, now I don't want to! I'm a hairdresser and customers being happy is how U eat! Being good is how I eat! Customer first, Ladies! Well I'll just keep looking and keep cutting my Own hair till I find The One, I suppose! If u want a good hairdresser, find me on Facebook, sorry, no intent on cutting in on anyone's buzz.
Today experience at strand was nice. I was able to talk to my nail tech without interruption. I would like to have that experience ever time
I truly truly truly wished the service matched the décor of the salon. The service is horrible when the décor is fabulous. Please treat your new customers better!! This is specifically for stylist Chris- I can not comment on the others.
Now since I have moved to LA I absolutely miss going to Strand Cafe. Makeup Bar parties were the best. I can not find a stylist out here that is on the same level. The shop gives you a very unique feel. The location is amazing being close to the freeways whether is is 670, 71 or 315. It is also close to OSU campus Perfect location. Staff is diverse. Why would you go anywhere else.
I recently had a "walk-in" appointment at the Strand Cafe Ultra Salon. I'm a new Short North resident and decided to get pampered in my new neighborhood! Wow what a treat it was. The ladies of this salon were so friendly and made me feel right at home. I got my hair and nails done (Chris on hair-Raven on nails) and I'll definitely be back....soon! The atmosphere was artsy yet elegant and immaculate in every way! I can't recommend this salon enough. I'm so lucky to live so close to a true gem!
Best Natural Hair Stylist in Columbus – Chris is the best Natural Hair stylist in Columbus. I have natural hair and search high and low for 5 years to find the perfect stylist. Finally, I found Chris, my Beauty Savior. I'm very happy to have her as a stylist. For all the new residents and peole who have lived in Columbus all there lives but don't know where to go to get there hair done;Come to Strand Cafe. The atomsphere is cool, fun and relaxing. Also, there is a aethestician on staff and an incredibly talented nail tech (Raven). These women love what they do and you will too!
The Best Salon in Columbus!! – I love Stand Cafe! I get my hair and nails done regularly and cant imagine going anywhere else. Christina is very knowledgeable when it comes to all hair types and textures and is always giving the best treatment for each client. I have had natural hair styles like afros and twists...colors from brown and blonde to pink....weaves of all kinds and now a trendy relaxed hair cut. I cannot say enough about how awesome this place is:)
Somewhat agree with the comments – The first person to rate this salon is pretty pathetic. It's obvious they did not go to the salon and get a cut by Chris, because they would clearly know that Chris is short for Christina who is a female! I agree with the staff being rude, especially the owner Chris. She does not speak when you walk in and/or leave, they are loud and gossipy. I only go for the nail tech Raven who is amazing! She sits in the back and is the best nail tech I have ever been too. I honestly wish she would find another salon to work at, because it would make my nail appointment more pleasant.
Also very disappointed – I totally agree with the other ladies who gave low ratings. I was VERY disappointed with the service here. The stylists just stand around and gossip to each other or talk on their phones while MULTIPLE people are waiting to get their hair done. I was waiting for an unnecessarily long time. I could tell that the other people waiting were also getting very irritated. It wasn't even like the stylists were taking care of other clients while they were talking. They were just chillin like they could care less that 3 people were waiting to do their hair. So unprofessional. Don't be fooled by the nice website and advertisements.
I will never come here again.
Very Disappointing – I purchased a groupon for this salon and was very dissatisfied with everything from the customer service to the cleanliness. I wasn't able to relax during my facial, as the room was surrounded by laughing and yelling and the esthetician's phone was vibrating throughout. The towels used were dirty from makeup and hair and the whole experience felt unhygienic.
My Groupon was for $60 and my facial came to $50. The one nail tech who had agreed to do to the pedicures with the Groupon wasn't available and I was forced to ferfeit the remaining $10.
At the end of the day, a rude staff, dirty environment and a so-so service.
