Emily is FANTASTIC. I moved to the area this summer, and finally had to find a new stylist after going to the same one for the past 20 or so years. I picked Ky Michaels Salon after looking at online reviews. I called for a last minute appointment (receptionist was really nice about this) and got one with Emily. I was pretty vague with what I wanted done; but she worked her magic, and it's the BEST haircut I've ever had. LOVE IT. Also, the salon itself is wonderful. Very professional and clean, and pretty much everyone is friendly and welcoming. Definitely my new go-to salon.
Ky Michaels is Awesome! – I've been going to Ky for about 10 years now. I have straight, thin, fine hair. There really isn't much I thought I could do with it until I met Ky.
My hair has been a multitude of colors that all came out great. I've also had long and short hair styles. I'm in the process of growing out my hair again and I'm not going through that awkward, stupid look that you get when you're growing out your hair, thanks to Ky!!
The salon is always clean and friendly. The rates are typical of any salon. I always find on-street parking. I have and would recommend this to any of my friends.
Raphael is brilliant. – For me, getting my haircut has always been a way to renew my self-confidence with an exciting and refreshing change. I'm a 23 year old girl who recently moved to Rhode Island, leaving me with the daunting task of finding someone new to cut my hair. For the first year or so, I stuck with the first person I found until I realized that none of the haircuts I was getting were a) exactly what I asked for or b) making me feel good about myself. So I peeked around here on Citysearch, and I found Ky Michael's salon.
I called and was able to get an appointment for the next day with Raphael, who is just brilliant. He talked to me for a while about who I am, what I see in myself, and what I want out of a haircut. He brought out books of pictures, gave suggestions, and worked with me to find something that would get me back to feeling like the young, energetic person that I am. He was able to pinpoint exactly why the haircuts I was getting were not doing me any justice and he fixed it. He was thorough in helping me to learn exactly how to duplicate the styling process for my gorgeous, short new cut and I've actually been able to make it look alright by myself at home (I've never been great at that). I also had a complete blast having my hair cut by Raphael because he's so much fun to talk to.
Haircuts should be all about finding that inner beauty and letting it out. I am so glad that I found Raphael at Ky Michael's Salon because he did that for me.
Riki is amazing!!! – My name is Anthony, i'm a 32 year old man with thinning hair. I've been getting my hair done by Riki at Ky Michael's salon for the past 8 years.She does amazing work and I always leave the salon feeling more confident. I gotta be honest thinning hair can make you feel very old and ugly or at least for me but Riki always makes me look and feel good about myself, so if you are a male with thin hair and wanna look better I highly recommend checking out Riki at Ky Micheael's salon.
Kristen...Amazing Stylist – I have been following Kristen for years....You don't get any better than her...She is now working at Ky Michaels Salon..The Salon itself is gorgeous... The staff is so welcoming and professional...
Kristen has truly found her calling... She is exceptional at what she does and Loves her job.... We always laugh and say she Bedazzles you...lol... Ask for Kristen you won't find a better Stylist!!
Run, don't walk to this Salon! You won't regret it. – First let's talk about this salon and then we can talk about the people. The Salon is in a great location that has parking (which is HUGE in Providence). The decor is modern and clean--but here is where this salon really begins to shine from the rest of the upscale salon scene in Prov--it's clean and modern yet warm and welcoming. The staff here are exceptional and the minute you walk in the door you feel appreciated. It's a nice feeling.
Now let's get to the most important--the work. I have curly hair and as anyone with curly hair knows--people have to know how to cut and style it. I saw Kristen as my sylist for a cut, highlight and lowlight. I can't tell you how fantastic my hair looks. It's so soft, shiny and the colors are so natural. And she takes great care to ensure that your hair stays healthy and doesn't dry out from being colored or processed. I can't tell you how many of my friends have hair that looks like hay. It's clear they are not coming here.
I've also seen people come walking out of salons looking like a brunette trying to be a blonde. Not the case here--she works with my natural colors and creates a highlight shade that is actually believable. No walking into work the next day explaining how my dark hair got blonde highlights overnight. I'm not an expert, but I think this is where the benefit of the "lowlights" come in--a natural blend that makes you look your best. I didn't even know what a lowlight was until I saw her--she didn't even say "this is what I think you should do"---she just went to work making me look my best. After my service I needed help choosing a product to contol my curly frizz in this New England humidity. She was very knowledgable about what would help me keep my texture. I get so many compliments on my hair, and I'm always happy to give her all the credit.
And the other best part--their pricing is totally reasonable.
She has to be one of the best in Providence. Seriously. Go see her. You won't regret it.
Great Salon.... – I cannot say enough about what a great salon Ky Michaels Salon is as well as the professionalism of the staff that works there. Kristen is truly a talented stylist. When I came to her for the first time, I was in need of some help, especially with my color. She took one look, examined my hair situation and went right to work. She knew exactly what my hair was lacking and what to do to give me a beautiful color and healthy texture. I am so happy with what she did and does every time. I also purchased the OI/oil and cannot imagine not ever using it. It is an awesome product and makes my hair so shiny and healthy. Thank you Kristen for being so good at what you do!!!

Danielle is an extremely talented stylist – I have been going to Danielle for over 3 years and I am so excited for her in her move to Ky Michaels Salon. The Salon is beautiful and the staff is so welcoming and pleasant, I was really impressed.
Danielle is an amazing stylist and I am constantly being complimented on my hair especially the color which Danielle does hi-lites and low lites. I would recommend anyone looking for a change or a new stylist book an appointment with Danielle. I know ladies how hard it is to change stylists so just book a blow out with Danielle and you will be hooked.
Best Salon in RI – I started going to Ky about 3 years ago when I won a gift certificate on 92 pro Fm . I wanted a change and i use to watch a lot of make over shows where they would give a person a cut that would go with there face etc. I went into Ky and said i want a change.. he told me what he was thinking and I loved it! I will not go to anyone else! My friend Michelle always liked my hair and now we go together. He is the best! you will feel like a million dollars after he styles your hair.
