I have extremely thick hair and had not found that special stylist to help with the right cut until I saw Cara H. at Samuel Cole salon. Since I am not as young as I would like to be, I requested a cut that didn't look too young or too old to go with a better coloring. Cara has toned down my color so that it is very flattering and given me a wonderful haircut that I have had many compliments on. I am so excited and pleased to have a marvelous hairstylist that listens to me. I would highly recommend her to anyone. And you will love her upbeat personality. Thanks Cara!
Denise at Samuel Cole Salon is great! I didn't know much about Brazilian Blowout, so she explained the process thoroughly. My hair has never been this smooth. I just wash, blow dry and go, not even having to flat iron it or anything. Also putting in Hotheads extensions for an thicker, fuller looking hair. She gave me a lesson in quick and easy curling iron styling. I look like a new woman! I always dreamt about having hair like I do now. She made my dreams come true!
I have never had a better experience than at Samuel Cole Salon. My stylist was Libby Bink, and she was AMAZING. I've always had a hard time at salons and never seemed to love the cut/color I walked away with, but Libby was able to give me exactly what I wanted. I have been back to her several times and tried new looks each time, and she always does it perfectly. She can do it all! She even taught me how to style my hair to make it look as though I am leaving the salon every time I do it. She is very personable and has always given me the five star treatment. I highly recommend this salon, and specifically Libby, to anyone looking for an amazing cut/color.
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.
