Richard Dion is amazing at what he does! I went from a boring regular haircut to an amazing stylish short cut. I have never received so many compliments on my hair before. I feel like a celebrity! I love that they are located in the heart of downtown Franklin and they have been there for so many years. It's such a great vibe. Any one new in town or looking for a different salon I strongly recommend going to Dion's South.
MY HAIR WAS RUINED BY GOING HERE!!! – I recently had my hair ruined here by the owner! My new stylist said that it will take three months to correct my cut and a year to correct my color! Color was put all over my hair instead of just the roots. They use L'oreal Inoa hair color which is one of the worst hair colors for your hair. Very drying and does not look natural! ~ The only reason to share my experience is to help others not to go through what I have been through. I have to deal with messed up hair every day now until the cut and color grows out!
Experienced Stylist worst experience – Save yourself the time, there are plenty of other places that have a less pretentious staff. Someone didn't teach their front desk staff manners, then to continue on after waiting for an undesclosed ammount of time (which seems like they were over booking in order to make money because of their name?!?) wow. I can't even waste my time on this review anymore they aren't even worth the time.
Horrible – I waited for 30 minutes, even though I had an appointment. Then they chopped my hair. It is horrible. The hair and the experience.
HORRIBLE, Worst experience ever! – I used Dion's South due to their 'excellent' reviews. I went to get my hair cut and colored the week before my wedding. I also scheduled my hair to be styled the day of my wedding.
The lady that cut my hair gapped the left side tremendoulsly, and tried to cover it up with styling. Also she dyed the front of my hair incorrectly. Once I pointed this out, she said, "Sorry, I don't have the time to fix this problem. You will need to make another appointment. I have customers waiting, and I have already spent too much time with your hair." She spent two hours trying to dye my hair. It is not my problem if she is slow. I did not realize the gap at the time due to the styling.
I did go to another salon that evening to get my hair dyed correctly. Having to pay full price yet again. I did keep my hair apointment for my wedding day. It was far too late to find another stylist on that short of notice.
The next day I walked into Dion's to address the gap in my hair. Richard fixed the cut himself, and agreed it was cut incorrectly. He had no idea why it was cut this way, and so badly. Greatfully he did not charge me for the hair cut he did for me.
I must say the person that styled my hair did an excellent job. After having to redue it twice, and me fixing part of it as well. This appointment was only supposed to last an hour. It actually lasted 2.5 hours making me late for getting dressed and pictures.
It is not appropriate for a bride to be crying while getting her hair fixed for her wedding. The stylist working on my hair was polite, but all the gossiping going on in the background that was overheard was uncalled for! I will never forget this horrible experiecne on what should have been the happiest week of my life.
It has been a couple of years since I had the experience listed above. But my anniversary is coming up, and I get mad every time I look at my wedding pictures. Expecially the ones that the photographer caught me crying in.
Thanks a lot Dion's South!
AMAZING!!!! – Moved to Franklin a few months ago and finding a hairstylist was a priority of mine. I'm truly picky about my hair because of my job. So, when I walked into Dion's, I was a bit nervous! I went with a senior stylist because of this reason, and I was BLOWN AWAY! Everybody there made me feel so comfortable and important from the moment I walked into the door to the time I got to my car. My hair turned out awesome and I really couldn't be happier. I would suggest this place to anyone who is trying to find a great stylist and a great atmosphere!
Deceptive and disappointing – I had finally decided it was time to invest a bit more and go to a nice place to get a decent hair cut. However, being a little bit fiscally conservative, I thought I would go with an intern stylist. She was a very nice young lady, but timid -- and the lack of confidence was apparent in the end result.
Most surprising (and disappointing) -- is that their sign out on the street, stated the intern price was $20 for a men's cut, yet I was charged $25. Making matters worse, my credit card revealed a $30 charge, even though I only tipped 2.50. When I called about this, I was told, "Oh yeah, we've been meaning to change that sign"...and was given an excuse about how their credit card company charges work. Never got an apology, nothing...and by the way, I could have gotten the same cut at a Super Cuts. MEN: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!
So appalled! – I am new in the area and called to make an appointment for a consultation for Dion's advertised hair extensions. I was greeted with a "Dion's. Hold please," and after waiting two minutes was again placed on hold to "see if we still do that stuff." I was insulted by their rude and unprofessional staff. I hung up and will NEVER call back.
They want you to be happy – I am a very picky person when it comes to my hair. I have been stylist hopping for the past few years trying to find that perfect salon...well I finally found it. I have been to Dion's 3 times and have been extremely satisfied each time. Their staff is wonderful, their ambiance is just what a salon should be, and their stylists are very talented. More importantly, they will do anything to ensure your "hair happiness." Bravo, Dion's South!
Very Satisfied Customer – I used to get my hair cut at Salon FX until my stylist moved to FL about 5 years ago. I then decided to try a stylist at Dion's South (I lived in Franklin at the time) and really loved my stylist and the salon was much less pretentious than Salon FX. I have been having Val cut and highlight my hair for the past 2 years and have been very happy! She's talented and she listens to what *I* want to do with my hair. The staff at Dion's is friendly and unpretentious. They usually are well-stocked with the hair products that they recommend too. At times they have jewelry and accessories that a local artist has made and is selling. It's always fun to see what they are selling while my hair is processing. Parking can be tricky on Saturday afternoons so try to get there a little early.
