Ask for Jake Eidson – I actually consulted this website for a hairstylist. I called in asked for Larry, however Larry isn't working there anymore. So I opted for Jake. Jake was amazing. I came in after I had cut my bangs--they were ok, but need a little fixing up. He fixed my bangs, gave me a trim, and dyed my hair. My hair looks awesome! He is young but he knows what he's doing (he's the owners son). I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is hesitant about trying new stylists. He follows orders very well.
Ask for Jake! – I'm not sure what came over me when I called Wilson's on Washington out of the blue to schedule a last minute haircut. All of the sudden, I couldn't stand my long hair anymore and felt the need for a big change. I found the cutest picture of a pixie cut (with long bangs) I could find and emailed it to my phone so I could show my stylist. I've been to this salon before and had a great experience, so I was open to taking the first available stylist. Fortunately, I got Jake as my stylist. He's friendly and very professional. This is BY FAR, my favorite haircut EVER! I literally blow dry my hair for about 4 minutes and then flat iron the front and it looks exactly like the picture I took to show him. He listened to everything I said and really took his time while cutting my hair. I'll definitely be a return customer!
WAS a Great Salon, Then Everyone Great Left – I was introduced to Wilson's after reading all of the reviews a little more than a year ago, and I definitely was very pleased with my original stylist (although I was used to Great Clips quality). Eventually, I moved on to Todd since my wife would only let him touch her hair, and the results have been ridiculously amazing. Simply put, the man knows how to cut, color, and style hair for both men and women ... for the same price as the far less-experienced people there, if not less.
Now, for the bad news (at least for Wilson): Todd's moved. He's at Mod Studio (of which another reviewer indicated a great stylist, Larry, also moved to). Which leads this review to its main point....the stylists who made Wilson's great a year ago are no longer at Wilson's. In fact, most went to Mod Studio, including Todd, Larry, Meghan, and Bryan.
However, the intention of this review is not to advertise Mod Studio, but to instead review Wilson's on Washington, itself. As it stands now, it has become a mediocre salon. Wilson, himself, is good, but he is VERY expensive. The only other person I'd recommend there is Chris, who's amazing with men's haircuts and the sweetest lady ever, but I can't vouch for her other qualities.
The bottom line is that Wilson's is not near as great as it used to be. If you call them, make sure you reserve someone you know is adept, because the receptionists are forced to schedule newcomers who don't request a stylist to the newer, inexperienced stylists (of which are actually quite terrible). Also, and on a side note, I found out how nasty Wilson, himself, is when I discovered that he made everyone tell previous Todd-groupies that he moved to North Carolina rather than doing the moral act and actually referring them to Todd at Mod Studio.
Do yourself a favor and find a stylist you like through all these reviews (I recommend Todd Burns, who's at Mod Studio) and stick with him or her. Don’t restrict yourself to a salon, because as Wilson’s has indicated, the good stylists will move when they’ve become too big of fish.
Jake Eidson is the BEST!! – I just moved to greenville a few weeks ago, and I needed to find a new salon to go to. I went to wilsons on washington and saw Jake. It was the best cut and color I have ever had!! I will defiantly be coming back! I felt like he really listned to what I wanted and did exactly what I wanted.
Larry Brooks Has Moved to Mod Studio !!! – Larry Brooks has moved from Wilson's on Washington to Mod Studio on the corner of Stone and Bennett. He has been doing my hair since he moved to S.C. over a year ago and he is the BEST colorist in town. My hair is so healthy and vibrant looking. He has over 25 years of experience and I'm so glad I found him!! He corrected my color and turned it around from looking brassy to now it is so natural and radiant looking.
So check out the new salon it is so amazing and it has a much more relaxed atmosphere. You'll be glad you followed him there. It's quite beautiful!!!
Larry Brooks is the best! – When I saw Larry the first time this past Oct. my hair was flat and drab....terrible. Today my hair is healthy, full of volume and the most amazing blonde ever. I completely trust him with my hair and will always listen to his suggestions. For instance, he suggested a body wave. I had visions of a bad 80's perm instead my hair now "floats" and has great movement. Trust Larry!
Larry (the hair guru) has moved! Can't wait to see the new digs at Mod Studio. Check out my hair....never looked so good!
Jason H. best stylist in Greenville hands down – I am trying to grow my hair out and really need help ~ Jason is great. He works with your hair as it grows, giving you the best cut available for your hair type etc. He is the man you need to see when you need a cut. Awesome job ~ highly recommend him!
Jason Herndon will rock your world – Just had my hair cut last night by Jason Herndon. He is a true professional and a genius with shears. Jason takes the time to actually listen to what you want to have done. He will assess your hair to ensure that the style will work and make suggestions. Great personality to go along with his high level of skill with hair. Highly recommend making an appointment with Jason -- great job!
Olivia is outstanding! – Olivia listens and communicates effectively so that she can plan a cut and color that you will be happy with. I found her hair cutting and coloring skills to be exceptional!! I haven't found anyone this skilled since I left New York.
Larry Brooks is the bomb!!!! – I had become almost phobic about even having my hair touched by anyone. After several bad experiences with color and cuts at many other salons I resorted to just doing my own hair, highlights even cutting sometimes because if anyone is gonna screw my hair up its gonna be me I'm deffinately not paying to have it screwed.I finally decided to google top hair colorist in Greenville and that is were I found Larry and after reading review after review of everyone raving about him I decided to call and make an appt.I went today I went from nappy blond highlights that had so many diff colors going on to a gorgeous rich chocolate brown with red and lighter brown tones all throughout it is awesome.I want to say anyone looking for a great stylist Larry is who you want to call. I am so happy and I never walk away loving my hair so that really is saying something.Also for those of you reading these reviews do not let this stuff about the girls working there dressing like strippers dicourage you from going that is the furthest thing from the truth.I don't know what planet those people were from but I did not see one person with anything that was inappropriate and if you won't go back in there then you can't go anywhere its just ridiculious really!
