never looked better!!!! – i've been going to hairplay since i was in high school. even when i went to santa barbara for college i still made regular trips back every six weeks to see my stylist. a few years ago she moved out of state and i've been floating around from salon to salon aimlessly ever since. after moving back into the neighborhood i decided to give hairplay another try. and i'm so happy i did. i saw ashley and she created the perfect golden blonde highlights that i was looking for. as i was paying for my service i complimented the woman in front of me on her gorgeous long thick hair. she said her stylist was damian sargent and to my surprise she said they we're extensions. i could not believe it, they looked so natural. so being the impulsive shopper that i am, i immediately set up an appointment with damian to get my own set. at the consultation he set my mind at ease and now a week later, i am a brand new person! with gorgeous color and fabulous extensions that look so natural i couldn't be happier. damian even called the next day to check in on me and my new hair. so sweet. i've never gotten so many compliments (by girls and guys) in my life. and since the extensions last for four months the price is totally worth it. thank you hairplay! thank you ashley! thank you damian!
Ladies get ready to be in AWE there is a new sheriff in town!!!!!!! – I have been going to Hairplay for a few years now and have always liked my hair. Until this past weekend that is.
If any of you have been there before there is a very sweet and way to cute assistant named Damian that has been working there under Fritz Hairplay's owner. Well looks like Damian is making his way on to the floor and lets just say thank god! the boy had talent like you wouldnt believe. I have been getting highlights and haircuts since i was knee high. only one bad experience when i was 17 other than that its always been nice...fine...and works.
For the first time EVER i was in absolute awe, my color looked like i was kissed by the sun, the cut was better than any cut i have ever had, and it even looks good when i get out of bed after a fun night! i think you know how pleasing that can be "wink wink".
all in all it was an amazing experience, he really took the time to find out what i wanted my hair to look like.We had the best conversation about life and when he was doing my hair he asked me questions about my life and was very helpful with advice "love him" i almost hate to write this cause i dont want him to get to popular, but i am already sure its happening to him cause i saw the ladies filing in one after the other to see him. he did promise me that i am now one of his "angels" and he will always make time for me.
i think this is the start of a wonderful friendship.
Simply don't understand the High Rated Review! – Oh my god! When I called up and tried to make an appointment for hair cut, the girl who answered the phone was sooooo rude- NO customer service whatsoever. She hung up on me! Guess what, I cannot even get an appointment without any rudeness, so what should I expect for my hair cut?!!! BAAAD :(
Stylist Damian Sargent at Hair Play is absolutely fantastic! – I would highly recommend stylist Demian Sargent to any of my friends or family.
Wow Factor Hair Extensions...better than the movie stars! – If you are even slightly considering hair extensions....stop thinking and go see Damien Sargent at Hair Play. He is amazing! Not only is he the most down to earth and happiest person ever..but he has a god given talent for making you look and feel like a victoria's secret model in 3 hours! Everything he told me is true. From the moment I got my hair extensions...people stopped and commented on my hair EVERYWHERE I went. It was CRAZY. People I didn't even know and even people I knew very well thought my hair looked gorgeous. I am so screwed now, because I promised myself I wouldn't be an addict...and well, I am for sure. I thought that it would be too high maintenance for me but in reality it's so much easier than my own hair. You don't even have to do a thing and they look great. A little product and scrunching and whalllaa...you have fabulous hair. Let's face it, if you're hair looks good...you look and feel good. Love, love, love Damien. Thank you!
Not a 5 star hair salon – I have no idea how this place got such high reviews.
It is cheap and affordable though.
I got Lisa which might be able to cut hair but in terms of coming up with ideas of what haircut to go with is not someone I would recommend - she just plain told me that she has no idea what to do. She also did something very weird and horrible in styling my hair, tried to fix it and still failed. I walked out of there rushing home to wash my hair and bring it to a normal shape.
The haircut itself came out was all right although she seemed unexperienced and slow while cutting it - the girl who actually gave the idea what to do was a hairstylist named Donna, she seemed to know what she was doing so I might try her next time if I decide to go back there and it will only be because its cheap and close by.
After seeing what a horrible styling Lisa did on my hair the owner was very unhappy and not because I was unhappy, but because I did not want to buy their styling product (which I are not good in my opinion, its not just Lisa's fault) and tried to convince that I am wrong (and that after trying them with Lisa...) and that they are just great and my opinion is not valid...
damian is the best! – so i saw damian sargent for extensions last week and can you say "HOT"!! crazy how beautiful my hair was when i left...the consummate professional in matching color and texture, damian gives tips on caring for your own hair as well as the extension hair, as well as being in and out of the salon within 2 hours - AND he's genuinely witty and soooo fun to be around - the only problem now is that i'm spoiled like a rock star, addicted to the extensions, & am now stalking damian to go have coffee cuz he's such a funny guy:)
go see damian for extensions at hairplay and rock the summer!!
Best salon in the city - go see Carla – Hands down, the best salon in the city and Carla is the best colorist and stylist. I have been to so many salons in the city - including some of the most expensive ones that shall remain unnamed here - paying upwards of $400 to get my hair cut and colored (ridiculous, I know). A few months ago I paid way too much money to get a terrible coloring job and bad cut and decided I had nothing left to lose. Went to Hairplay and saw Carla and she saved my horrific combination of grey-orange hair and turned it into what it was supposed to be - beautiful and NATURAL looking blonde highlights. It maintained so well, it was three months before I had to go back for anything. This time back, the highlights were even better and every last remnant of bad hair color is gone - my hair looks better than I ever thought it could. As well, I was able to trust her enough to go with bangs. We talked about it, she listed to me (and how low maintenance I am with my hair) and then consulted with the owner. Between the two of them, they gave me beautiful bangs that are both soft and edgy and frankly - I keep staring at myself in the mirror my hair has never looked so good. The test of good color and cut: I woke up this morning, threw my hair in a ponytail and it looks like I spent an hour on it. Bonus: if your bangs need to be trimmed, it's free.
Mixed – I've had good and bad experiences here, but the last time, I had a good, friendly stylist (Fatima) who did a great job. She spent a lot of time getting the details right and I'm going to keep my fingers crossed with her.
Apologies to "ihaightsf" from Hair Play – To the woman who wrote about her bad experience at Hair Play, I extend our apologies. I am Carla and I was not your stylist that day. Apparently, there was a bit of a mix up in the scheduling and you ended up with a different stylist. I understand your frustration and disappointment and I'm sorry you weren't happy with your service. At Hair Play, all of our stylists are trained to meet the needs of our diverse clientele but sometimes miscommunication or misjudgments with a service can leave a client unhappy. I realize that it is unlikely you will return, but I just wanted you to know that on behalf of everyone at Hair Play- we apologize.
