Valerie was fantastic. She gave me an incredible haircut and also spent the time to discuss hair care. I didn't realize how great my hair could look.
Renee has been doing my hair for about 15 years!! She finally got me to do a Deva cut when I was in high school and ever since I have been getting compliments on my GORGEOUS curls!! I refuse to let anyone else cut my hair and always make sure to come back to her wherever she is! I can honestly say that I have traveled back from NYC, the UK, and China JUST to have her cut my hair. She always understands what I want and I never leave feeling like my needs were ignored or she didn't get exactly what I wanted. Salon Studio is also so welcoming and I love spending the day there getting pampered. I cannot recommend Salon Studio enough, especially Renee!
Love this salon and especially Jesy. Switched from ouidad cuts to devA a few yrs ago when I first started seeing Jesy. Love the cut and the way it grows out. Highly recommend SalonStudio and Jesy. They understand the curls! Love my hair and this salon.
My Mom took me to Valerie 3-4 years ago and I got the best haircut ever. Valerie showed me how easy it is to style my curly hair and have it look great and not frizzy. Other members of my family also go to her and we have continued to follow her wherever she goes. I highly recommend her!
Valerie has been cutting my hair for a few years. I have continued to follow her because of her great culry cuts! My hair is easy to style and manage. She always has great tips to make the styling easier. The salon is great and has its own parking!!
Valerie has been cutting my hair for the past few years and a have followed her to different salons. She is the first person who has ever cut my hair dry, curl by curl so it doesn't "shrink" and end up much shorter than I wanted. She stays informed on new techiques and products and has shown me better ways to style and dry my hair. She is friendly and patient and would highly reccomend her
Only now, in my 40's, have have I received compliments about my hair. Family, friends and strangers comment on it regularly - even my husband! It is healthy, curly and super easy to style and maintain. Valerie has shown me that curly hair requires special attention, products and care. She took time to understand my lifestyle and budget. She has even transformed my 12 year old son whose spiral curls are shoulder length and awesome. I'll never get a straight haircut again.
Salon Studio is the third salon I have visited in my quest to follow Valerie. I do this because Val has taught me to actually like my hair! From the beginning, she has spent hours on educating me on how to handle this shoulder length, thick, course head of hair. She has patiently guided me on ways to wear it, care for it, and live with it. Because of Val, people continually ask if my hair is naturally curly and say things like, "what I wouldn't do to have your hair!" So, if you have unmanageable curly hair...run, don't walk to Salon Studio and make an appointment with Valerie. You'll be so glad you did! PS. Other perks include a bright, cheery atmosphere. Assistants who cannot do enough for you; even make you a delicious cup of cappuccino and lets not forget the easy access off of Rt. 287 plus free parking in front of the salon.
Valerie does a great job with curly hair. She knows her stuff! She is always willling to listen to you and work with you on the look you want. She not only gives a great haircut and beautiful color, but she tells you how to maintain the look after you leave the salon. I recommend her highly.
For years I have been cutting my own curly hair due to the frustrations of never being happy with a haircut from a salon. As my hair progressively became more out of control and unmanageable I searched online for some guidance and stumbled upon reviews for Salon Studio and Valerie. I immediately booked an appointment online and thought "Why not give it a try." Thank goodness I did! Valerie is the first stylist who truly listened and asked questions regarding my hair routine, use of products and how to create a hairstyle that would work for me. In my first appointment, she spent 3 hours with me (and me alone!) explaining each step of my haircut and style. In my second appointment, we discussed how the haircut worked for my lifestyle and schedule, how to use different products to achieve various looks and how to continue to maintain a soft hair texture. Valerie is the first and only stylist who I have trusted with a pair of scissors around my hair! I highly recommend her!
I have known Valerie for many years and have followed her around the area to other salons for years! What has always impressed me most about her is that she is always improving her skills and knowledge with workshops and classes. My hair is wavy and she has consistently given me cuts that are flattering and easy to manage. She has also helped me find the perfect color. Valerie has great rapport with her clients, she is cheerful and patient and really listens to what the client wants. I would highly recommend Valerie and Salon Studio.
I found Valerie on the internet years ago. She knows how to cut curly hair and she cuts it dry. She has been my stylist for six years. I have recommended her to my sisters, some friends, nieces and my own children go to her. We all have curl hair. She is fantastic. She takes her time cutting and styling. I have always had issues with stylist in the past that will cut hair wet and resulted in a triangle effect. Then they apply way to much product so I would have to wash my hair when I got home. Valerie listens and applies the right amount of product. I have never had a bad haircut or style with Valerie.
I first met Valerie over a year ago. I followed her from 2 other salons, to Salon Studio. She did my very first Deva cut and also corrective color and it turned out great. Valerie is extremely knowledgeable with everything curly! Never do I feel rushed, as she takes the time to talk about what you want done, how to do it, and how to maintain and manage your look. I am extremely pleased with Valerie and highly recommend her for your curly hair cuts!!
I have followed Valerie for the last 5 years to a couple of salons. This is the best one yet. Valerie really understands curly hair. She is very passionate about hair and really wants to understand and please her clients. I love the way she cuts my hair. I also trust her because she is a fellow curly girl and has great hair! I would highly recommend Valerie as a talented stylist to any customer, but especially curly girls.
I have been seeing Valerie for a few years now and she's wonderful! She has listened to me from Day 1 on what I was striving for with my hair. We have experimented a few times and even though sometimes it hasn't worked, she is always willing to try something else (if I'm willing) and she continues to always meet my expectations. She does a great job and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!
I am 57 and have never been to a stylist that was a curly hair specialist -- what a mistake. I spent this past weekend with a friend searching the web for Deva stylists in my area and fortunately chose Salon Studio and Jesy. My phone call was answered when the salon was closed by the owner's (Renee) mother who was a delight to speak with. She took time to understand what I wanted and got me into the salon with Jesy the next day! I am a business owner and needed something sophisticated but carefree and Jesy pulled it off with expertise. It's a very 1920's style and works wonderfully. Everyone was friendly, happy and made me feel welcomed as if I was a regular customer. The salon is impeccable, intimate and comfortable. I had ordered Deva products online before even making the appointment and Jesy made certain to use what I had purchased so that I would know how to use them. Unlike other salon experiences, no one pushed me to buy more -- they didn't even mention it! Another customer, with straight hair, asked me if I had a perm -- she couldn't believe that natural curls could ever look like this -- neither can I. Jesy also advised me that I shouldn't need another hair cut for several months -- some of her customers only cut their locks every 6 months! She also matched my hair color and only colored the roots and gave me subtle highlights that just blend in and look totally natural. I could not be happier. If you have curly hair, The Salon Studio is the place to go.
I started coming to Jesy about a year ago. I had always had a traditional wet haircut before this. I had to have it cut every 3 weeks for control. Imagine my surprise when I got a fantastic, stylish curly cut that can go a minimum of 8 weeks between visits. Jesy is one of the most talented people I have ever met. Over the months my hair has only gotten better. She and Lucia are 2 of the most patient people - giving lessons on how to style your own hair. The salon itself is clean and well managed; all the people are nice and friendly. I recommend it unreservedly to any curly girl.
I am delighted to have a Deva salon in my neighborhood. I have had my share of Quidads cuts, but none compare to the simplicity in doing my hair everyday. Jesy has given set my curls dancing. She knows "curls." It is my second Deva cut and I couldn't be happier. It's nice to go to a place that embraces a women's naturally curly hair.
I am glad I tried the "Deva" cut. I would always see curly cuts that looked fresh, updated and fun and after having a Deva cut I finally got the look too. I have been going to Jesy since last year and she is very knowledgeable, has great advice and really listens to your hair "desires". Also, the rest of the staff is very nice and welcoming...overally great experience. Try it~
I came to Jesy after attempting to grow out one of the worst haircuts of all time. My only saving grace was that I hadn't colored in years and I only lightly diffuse my hair with the Devafuser so it was relatively healthy. I told her I needed a dry cut, that I had been shampoo free for almost 5 years, and that I needed to see what it would look like FINISHED before I walked out the door. She was super easy to work with, and everyone else in the salon was great. I was cut dry, rinsed and conditioned, plopped, gelled, clipped, and dryed. Jesy told me to do exactly what I would do in the morning so she could fix the cut, and when I left I felt great. She really takes her time to examine your hair and pay attention to the cut. The tiniest snips turn into a great shape and style.0 Jesy sent me several emails explaining my hair was too short and curly for Ombre. I realized she hadn't seen me in 6 months and had no idea it was much longer and less tight - she remembered exactly what my last cut looked like and was watching out for my style. She definitely has your back. Today was a bit of a Deva party at SS - everyone was curly and discussing products, methods, and treatments with one another. Salon Studio is really comfortable and everyone, even the other clients, are friendly. It's a genuine curly community. Everyone there is really talented and it shows. I'm now at a point that I would never touch my hair with scissors like I used to nor would I let anyone else do my hair other than Jesy. I would absolutely recommend her!!!
I had a great experience at Salon Studio! I researched salons that specialize in curly hair and went with Salon Studio based on the reviews. Joanna listened to what I wanted and took the time to go through various options for styles. She also gave many tips for hair care. The cut turned out great and it was exactly what I wanted. Overall, I love my new hair cut and would definitely recommend this place for anyone with curly or straight hair! Thanks Joanna!
I went to Salon Studio for the first time a couple of months ago and loved it. Jesy cut and colored my hair and I got my first deva treatment. My hair never ever looked that good and lasted for 3 days. Loved it. She was fantastic and the salon is beautiful. The stylists are all warm and friendly, but it is still a trendy type salon. Perfect combination. I just made my second appt. I found a new home!
I have had such a hard time finding someone to properly cut my hair & am very happy to have found Meghan. She cut my hair dry & seemed to know what she was doing--I certainly have a much more flattering style now than before I went in. I've had a lot of compliments. I will go back to Meghan & definitely recommend her. A couple of things: I did have to go in for an adjustment, b/c a few pieces were quite long. I kind of thought the point of a dry cut was to see the curl pattern & am a little surprised this happened, but maybe it's normal; I guess your hair doesn't curl the exact same way every day. And the same thing happened with my previous dry cut at a different salon, so maybe it's just part of the process. It was a pain to go back but it was superquick & easy & now everything is great. I was a bit distressed when she planned to use a product on me that had silicones (or sulfates--sorry, I can't remember which; cones make more sense though). Anyway, I asked if it had them, & she checked with a colleague, who said yes. Truthfully I'm not so sure it would have been so horrible to use the product, but I figure avoiding cones is such a major CG rule (& the salon stresses its Deva know-how) that I was surprised. But when I said no, she used Deva products instead, so I know they were CG friendly & no harm was done. The price was an issue for me. A Deva cut is normally $100, although I had a coupon so it was less. B/c of the price, I will only go in infrequently. But the salon is really nice & while I waited for my appt they made me the best cappucino I've ever had! :-)
I've been going to Jesy for 5 years, and I won't let anyone else touch my hair! She cut it when it was long (down to my butt!), short, and a few lengths in between, and they've all looked amazing. When I first went to her, my hair was a mess. I hated my curls, couldn't manage my frizz, and had never found a haircut I was happy with. Jesy changed ALL of that. She cut it dry, got rid of all the extra poofy-ness and frizzy-ness and got my hair to fall in these beautiful, well-defined ringlets. Not only did it look great when she was done, but Jesy also took the time to teach me about my curls and how to style them at home so that I could get them to look just as great when I did it myself. Now, it takes me 15 minutes or less to do my hair in the morning, and people are always telling me how beautiful my curls look. If you have curly hair, and need a great stylist, I definitely recommend Jesy!
