Mariya is an artist! – Mariya gave me the best hair cut of my life! I was indecisive about what I wanted and second guessed everything that she recommended, however she thoroughly explained each decision and made me feel very much a part of the process. She cut our beautiful daughter's hair before mine, and I observed that she is both an artist and a perfectionist. My husband has just come home and told me I am beautiful! Thank you Mariya!
I HAVE HAPPY CURLS! – Sherry made me so happy today! My curls look better than ever. She also put highlights/lowlights in and they look amazing.I went shopping after my haircut and had many great compliments. I drive from W-S just to go to Wavelengths- she's the best stylist I've ever had. Thanks Sherry!
Wavelengths Rocks! – I love everyone at Wavelengths! I have tried several different stylists and have never been disappointed.Amira cut my hair most recently and William gave me great highlights- even strangers are giving me compliments!Wavelengths is a fun place to work! Check out all our Aveda gift sets!
MARIYA IS NOW AT STAGE ONE – The breath of fresh air has left Wavelengths. Mariya is now working at Stage One at the corner of Broad St. and Club Blvd. What a loss.
Yikes -watch out curly girls – Yikes is how I felt after this salon was done with me. I went in for a consultation for my curls and came out quite unhappy. To make a long story short, (which is what basically happened to my hair) I believe that if you are a curly haired person, you may need more than just a Ouidad trained stylist! I made an appointment with Sherry, who is one of the two Ouidad trained stylists there. She has been cutting hair for years and after our consultation, I felt willing to give her a go. I regret this. She told me that she could fit me in (which was very nice) to do a simple clean up job-remove some fried ends and make my curls better. My hair was just past my shoulders at the longest part. I was quite concerned about wanting to leave as much length as possible and she told me that she would cut a little at a time. She also told me that she would style my hair with the Ouidad products and show me how to make my curls better. This all sounded good. The next thing I knew I was under a dryer hood with the tightest, shortest hair I have EVER had! I was seriously scared for the first time in my life at a hair salon. When the super crunchy curls were done, she tried to pull them out but I was not left with much hair. It was clearly above my shoulders, rounded, and I felt very ugly with it. I almost cried. I have worked with my curls for years and I have never seen my hair look this short or tight! I was just about to stick it back up in a hair clip and call it a disaster when a kind man with great style named William came by. He asked me if he could help and he suggested that I dye my hair one color since my lighter ends (highlights growing out) were making my hair look even shorter and thinner at the ends. At this point I knew this would help and he has been the only hair stylist who had ever suggested that-but it made sense. So now I have darker hair almost black (It used to be a dark brown, but I really like it. It brings out my blue eyes more and I even like my curls better. He is an artist! He really saved the day for me!!! So my curls are short but healthier and my hair now looks thicker thanks to William. Overall, it was a scary experience and I end up having to pay for the color but not the cut. The moral of the story for curly girls is: Just because a stylist is Ouidad trained does not mean that she/he knows how to cut curly hair to look good with your face. I wish she would have just told me in our consultation that I needed a lot more growth before my Ouidad cut and that she would have just snipped off the tiniest bit of damage instead of giving my such short hair. Ouidad trained or not, good communication and a stylist who has cut curly, textured hair for a LONG time is the best. This salon has great products, good customer service, but you may want to stay away if you have curly hair.
Great Stylists – William is back! William McBroom is the most recent member of the Wavelengths Team-check him out on facebook! Seriously, you cannot go wrong at Wavelengths-they have young trendy stylists as well as seasoned pros!Wavelengths also carries the very best products(Aveda,Bumble and Ouidad). I would recomend Wavelengths to everyone. If you need a totally flawless haircut and are not in a hurry and believe that you get what you pay for- book with William!
Ask for Sabrina – Consistently good. Not that expensive for men.
pretty good – Prices for hair cuts will run you at least around 50-a little bit high and cuts are just ok. Always had a great experience with color, however. Parking can be a hassle at times but overall is ok.
Great Cut Great Stylist – I have tried many stylists and Brittany is the best ever. Not only is she excellent with adult styles, she is great with children. You can' t go wrong with Brittany. She listens and makes sure she understands what you want and goes far and beyond what it takes to make sure her customers are satisfied
Great Cut and Colour Every Visit – I have been getting my hair cut at Wavelengths Salon for three years. When my first stylist left the salon, my new one was even better. Her name is Brittney Rich. Brittney is a very sweet person who is extremely attentive to creating a style for me that I like and that works for my hair/head. She keeps notes about her customers' styles and colours. She does not have to guess or make me reinact what I want each time I visit. She is also willing to fix anything that I may not like after I have worn the style for a couple of days (which I have not had to do, by the way). Go see Brittney for a great cut and awesome colour!
