Fantastic! I have pencil tight 3b curls and have been terrified of salons for years. But Rubies was amazing! Karrie genuinely understands curly hair - she knows how to avoid triangle head, she understands that wet curls get much shorter when they dry, she gives great scalp massages (haha), and on and on. She knows how to work with curls like mine, which is super rare, and she's not the only one in the salon. The other stylists understand curls as well. It's the perfect place for those with naturally curly hair. And a big bonus is that everyone there is super sweet and the salon is cozy and full of amazing local artwork. Also, they only use natural products. The only issues with Rubies is the lack of parking. If you know the area then you know how tight it is over there. Leave early so you can hunt down parking. But all in all I am in love with Rubies,

Bethany Rocks!!! She completely understands you when you say "Please don't give me triangle head!" She will give you a great cut and style you can live with and love! The first stylist I have met that knows just what to do with super thick, unruly curly hair!! Although I didnt really want to let the "secret" out - she is THE curly stylist for GR...

After several horrible experiences with other stylists, I am finally able to walk out of the salon with a smile! Christopher always takes care of my curls, whether it's cut, color, or straightening. I can't recommend him enough!!

Stylist: Sara

While I am a fine, straighted-haired client, I worked as a hairdresser with Sara for several years before she moved to Shanti. I have the utmost respect for Sara's skill with curls and color. She not only has an excellent eye for hair shape and color placement, but is also well versed in the technical aspects of cutting and coloring. When I left the hair business, I did not hesitate to recommend her to my clients. She is one of Grand Rapids' well-kept secrets.

Since I have been going to Bethany, I have gotten so many comments about my haircut - even from strangers. I used to hate my curly hair and would even use a straightening iron to get rid of the curls but my hair never looked right. Bethany gave me a great layered cut that really makes a difference in how my hair curls and she showed me how to style my hair to show off the curls. She does great color too!

Although she's fairly new to Shanti, Sara has been my stylist for years. I followed her to Shanti from her previous salon, where I originally asked for someone who could cut and style curly hair and was introduced to Sara. I still get compliments all the time from friends, relatives, co-workers, even my son's teacher. Shanti is lucky to have Sara -- she's a perfect fit for this stylish salon. And I'm lucky Sara moved to Shanti! A great atmosphere for a little pampering and some cool extras -- love the knit bags and jewelry! It's like a mini-vacation!
