Stylist cut off at least 2/3rd of length that I clearly labeled as “Finally grown out” just minutes earlier.
When originally calling Samuel Cole Salon, 8511 Colonade Center Drive, Suite 120 in Raleigh, NC. I requested a “Shag specialist” and was referred to Kristina Weeks.
On February 25th, at 6:45 pm I had my second hair appointment with Kristina. Having gone through my intentions to grow my hair long extensively during our 1st session, I proudly pointed out to her that my hair finally had reached the necessary minimum length for the haircut I intended.
I asked her to shorten the top and showed her a picture of how short – noting not to look at the rest of the picture because the rest of the hair on the picture is too short. Instead, I told Kristina, I wanted gradually longer layers to encompass the length of my hair – the basics of a shag.
She commented that “This will look raggy, and what if I take away some of the heaviness in the back”. Naturally, some – means a little to most people, including me.
I am not sure if she messed up or did it intentionally – she cut off at least 2/3rd of the length of my hair on the back of my head – thus erasing 2 years of growing my hair out. As if that is not enough, she left the sides long – so now I have these two weird long strands on the side of my face that don’t go with the shortness of the back of my head. It also looks like a mullet instead of a shag.
Because she left these long strands on the side I did not realize what she had done to the back of my head until I washed my hair later that night! I have contacted the salon, but have not received any response.
What I cannot get over is that this stylist ignored what I wanted and cut the hair the way she wanted!!!!
Honestly, the best salon in Raleigh/Durham area. The recent visit was my third time at Samuel Cole. I fell in love the first time I was there. As soon as I checked in, the receptionist politely offered me something to drink. They have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Nikki is my stylist, she's very patient. She listens to what you want, gives you her opinions and works with you. Her associate shampooed my hair and gave me a gloss. I went for a "full bang" look this time, Nikki patiently taught me how to do the look at home since I don't know how to do my hair at all. She gave me a list of the products she used on my hair at the end of the session. The salon uses Bumble & Bumble hair line. The products smell wonderful. Have nothing bad to say about this salon. Also, the bang trims are complimentary in between appointments.
Mention my name -"Cho Hung Chiu" to receive $20 off on your next appointment, & you will receive a goodie bag on your first visit.
Taylor was amazing. She gave me the best look for fall, I had never had my hair colored before, she explained the process that made me feel very comfortable. I live inside the belt line and have tried a few salons down town, but I'm glad I made the drive out to Samuel Cole. She gave me a Brazilian Blow out that has made my hair amazingly soft an so easy to style. I definitely will be returning to see her.
Cara rocks! Hands down the best haircut I've gotten. Great location and friendly people.
Carolyn is great! – I went to Carolyn Nord after a few friends had recommended her. She gave me the color hair of my 8 year old daughter, and a cut that I have received nothing but compliments about. She's very talented, and all around great to be around. She's not cheap, but you get what you pay for and she is worth it!!
I have been seeing Natalie at Ananda in Asheville for the last year. She was the best stylist I have ever had. She was always creative and professional. You all are very lucky to have her. I will now be driving to Raleigh to get my hair done!
Carolyn Nord is the greatest! I absolutely love my time with her. Not only does my hair look amazing, but she is just a dear person. She always listens to your hair concerns, gives great ideas and product recommendations. If only I could come in once a week for a fab blowout...sigh.
It was my firs time visiting a salon and Samuel Cole Salon has made me never want to visit a barber shop ever again. My stylist Katie Hu was awesome. She taught me so much about applying products and she gave me such am awesome cut. I literally could not wait until my next appointment. The step from mediocrity to SCS was well worth and definitely noticeable. Can not wait to go back.
I have to give the salon Samuel Cole 2 thumbs up for my haircut experience. My stylist for some 8 years recently moved and I had to find someone new to cut my hair. Samuel Cole was given high ratings so I gave them a shot and was totally satisfied with the stylist Morgan that they connected me with.I will be back to see her in a month-she knows what she is doing and I'm not one to make changes when I find someone who is good.
Had another appt with Morgan at Samuel Cole and I can't say enough about not only her talent, personality and how much she cares but how she truly listens to what it is I want done. Also how awesome the salon is, everyone there is fantastic! Each time I go to Morgan she has stepped it up a notch in her abilities to listen to how I want to look when I leave and also how well she knows the products. Her advise on all the products I have purchased have been great. I recommend Morgan to all my friends and although they are loyal to their stylists I keep after them to at least give her a try...so many times I hear them say "I just didn't like the way she did my hair this time!"..I have NOT had that problem...Call and ask for Morgan, you will not be disappointed.
