earned the 1 star – awful experience! the sink was filthy and the floor unswept. everyone in the salon seems trapped in the early to mid 90's. nail services may be ok, but stay away from the stylists here.
Get Cut! – I was long overdue for a cut because of time constraints. A friend, who's hair always looks great, referred me to Karen at Hi Tech. First impressive point was the welcome I got at the reception desk. When I checked in I mentioned I would also like an eyebrow wax. No problem, appointment after the cut and dry with the blowdryer (have to use the whole phrase, I just got flagged).
Karen came to the front, sat down with me to ask about my hair and what I wanted...length, style, shape. After a wash, she cut, we talked. All ina ll a great experience with Karen.
Then I was escorted to the spa area, absolutely spotless and not a overpowering aroma from the treatment rooms. Katie waxed my brows. I emerged with virtually no redness.
They will definitely see me again.
Great waxing – I recently moved to the area and had a bikini bare waxing at Hi-Tech. It was hard for me to part ways with my previous girl, almost feeling like a really bad break- up, but I was put with Katie. She made me so comfortable and was extremly professional but very cool at the same time. That could be a really awkward experience with someone new, but she was FABULOUS!!!! She suggested someone for my hair, so I will be back. Oh, she did facial waxing too and that was great as well.
Outragious price, mediocre quality of work & knowledge of hair cuts and especialy color/highlights. – I was extremely disappointed after my experience at Hi-Tech Salon after my color and highlights, especially after being charged nearly $200!!!! I expected the hair stylist to have the maximum knowledge after supposedly being employeed at this salon for 9+ years and being in the industry even longer.After consulting with me for good length in time regards to what I was looking for, the stylist brought out swatches and matched to my hair and after looking at pictures and lengthy disscusion couldn't even deliver the results next to anything that I was looking for!! This was a simple dark(only one color) base and only one color of highlights, nothing fancy or complicated, and then to have been charged this OUTRAGIOUS bill of almost $200!! The price list doesn't even match to what I was charged.
Hair Styling supreme – I was getting bored with my hairdo and unfortunately I took scissors myself and did some damage. The stylist (Laura B) did a great job with fixing the damage and I now have a sleek style. Laura is very talented and I look forward to her handiwork again.
WORST OF EVERYTHING – despite the reviews below, i decided to give hi tech the benefit of the doubt. not everything people say on the internet is true. well in this case they were RIGHT! horrible everything. cut/color/servce/attitude! NEVER again will anyone at this salon touch my hair. i write this review to warn you but if you dont believe me i dare you to go see for yourself... if you do go for an appointment here i offer you this comfort, it's only hair i will grow back. (thats the only thing that got me through the awful cut i received at this salon)
tacky color and cut. – I needed to have my hair cut and colored for a very special New Year's Eve event. Most of the salons in the area were booked but when I called Hi Tech the receptionist assured me there was a stylist available for the amount of time my cut/color was going to take. (I explained to her that I have VERY long thick hair that tends to be stubborn with color) It ended up being a DISASTER. First, I had to wait 20 minutes when I arrived even though I was on time. I told the stylist I didn't want layers, but she added them in anyway. (Saying my hair was too thick and needed to be "broken up" whatever that means) She was incredibly abrasive and overbearing insisting she was the expert and I should just relax and let her do what she felt was best. I wanted some subtle high and lowlights blended in but she gave me streaks that look overprocessed and dated. By the time she handed me the mirror and flipped the chair around so I could see the back of my hair in the mirror I was nearly in tears. She offered to fix the color but I was running late and had to leave. Plus, I was scared to let her do any more! I ended up wearing my hair that night in an up-do that my friend did for me when I got home. AND I'm going to another salon next week to have the cut/color amended.
All in all, it wasn't the worst experience I've had (my mom took me to have a poodle perm when I was 10) but I am very disappointed with the skills of my stylist at Hi Tech.
not impressed. – the girl who cut my hair seemed rushed and the cut turned out sloppy as a result. she was also pretty clueless about technical knowledge and unaware of the current trends for shorter hair. my impression of hi tech is that its fine for what it is, an affordable neighborhood salon, but if you want anything creative or edgy, it's best to go elsewhere. at $45 my cut was priced fairly, but i won't be going back for another appointment.
Best salon in South Jersey!! – No doubt about it, Hi Tech is 1 of South Jersey finest! The staff, the enviroment the result when you walk out the door .. it doesn't get much better. Everyone is so nice and great at what they do. I'm sure their are some exceptions, but I've had everything from color, to cut, to waxing, to massage to nails... did i miss anything? NEVER EVER did i walk out singing anything but praises. As for prices, i look at it this way, you get what you pay for. It's your HAIR the first thing people see when they look at you. Next time you have a problem with the price of your hair cut go to supercuts and pay 11 dollars... GUARANTEE you'll end up back at Hi Tech paying their price for them to fix it. Also when your new in town and need to find a new stylist, look at other peoples hair and if you like it ask them where they get there hair done. I'll betcha 8 times out 10 they'll say Hi Tech Hair and Spa in Northfield!!!!
WOW – well first of all to the woman below me..if u knew anything about hair you would know that ur hair cant be all one length and be a wegde cut ...that makes no sense....second...you also have to realize when u bring in a picture odds are..majority of the time ur not going to come out looking like the picture bc..we all have different hair types, face shapes, and features...so no hair cut will look the same on everyone and that hair cut may have not worked well for you...Also if u werent happy with the cut...did u speak up and tell her that when she was all done cutting your hair? Or did u leave with a smile on ur face and then complain about it on city search???
Now on to my reveiw...I love high-tech salon and spa and I am a frequent client of theres and have had many services done by a number of different people. There have been occaisonal mix ups with appointments and maybe some minor problems..but when I SPOKE UP ( unlike some people) The staff was quick to solve problems or anything i was unhappy with. B/c of their professionalism and friendliness i continue to go there and i love it!! Thanks to all the staff at hi-tech!!!!
P.S. Suzi i love my cut!!!!
