Reviews for Alva Hair Salons

Rated Review by Barbara J.
"The whole process went great. The shop is very well kept. I was totally pleased because first of all I called in that morning to see if she could take me. She told me to come over immediately. Mrs.
, the owner, started off with seeing what had to be done with my hair. Then the transformation began. Cut, relaxer, color, shampooing and conditioning. After all that I was put under the dryer and my hair wrapped. At the end, she styled my hair. What a wonderful surprised. My only regret was that I did not take a before picture of me and then an after.
It took at least 20 years off of me. People have been giving me compliments everywhere I go. Some did not even recognize me.
I am now a loyal customer.
Today, 7/18/2014 I went back to have my hair done. Again a great job and because I did not have all the extras I needed on the first visit, the price was considerably lower.

"Absolutely horrible! This is a
that does not like to keep their appointments!! I called to make an appointment with
, and was told that I had to wait over 3 weeks for an appointment due to bookings and vacation plans. I had no problem with this since I had found this
through the Redken
Finder, and wanted to stick with a Redken colorist. She told me the appointment was for
17th at 7:30 pm. I wrote this down, and then confirmed with her that it was a 7:30 *PM* appointment. She said that they tend to make a lot of late night appointments. I went to the
on the day and time of the appointment and was shocked to find that the
was closed. I had desperately needed this appointment and had finally arranged child care for my daughter to make this appointment. I called and left them a message asking them to let me know what happened, and they *never* called me back. I had to call myself again to find out what happened.
Horrible horrible customer service. STAY AWAY!!!

Sample Hair Salons Reviews

"My hair has been a challenge since I was a child. It seems to grow in all directions.
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
is able to cut my hair and style it so that it looks terrific and is easy for me to maintain in between cuts.
"I have been going here for over a year now. The staff is friendly and very personable. I have decided not to return only because I continually break out after waxes. I stopped getting my lip and chin waxed b/c of these breakouts. I get a bikini wax so I don't have to deal with the razor burn and itching that follows shaving and I've found that I consistently have uncontrollable itchiness and lots of ingrown hairs in my bikini area after I get waxed. I need to find some place that doesn't break off the hairs so much so I don't have this problem.
"I wanted the same basic cut as I have had. I am a 50 year old woman with baby fine, straight short hair. I needed a shaping up and actually wanted it shorter in places. I like to have a little height on top.

kept cutting and cutting and when she was done it was sooo short and laid flat on my head. She said to use NO product, which meant that my hair was just laying flat and straight down on my head. Even my 20-something daughters thought it looked horrible. The color job was bad as well. She missed some spots around my face and gray was showing. The entire time she kept talking about how terrible my previous stylist was (I had just moved from Dallas and most definitely did not have a bad stylist!) and how wonderful she was and kept talking about how everyone recommends her and the more she talked, the more I realized that she was talking about how her fellow Asians in the
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
business recommended her. My hair is nothing like Asian hair. Also, she went on and on about how she hates living here! Not a good experience at all. Oh - she also told me to to come back for 6 weeks. With short hair, it needs to be cut every 4 weeks, and with my color needing to cover my gray, that needs to be done every 4 weeks as well. I would not recommend this

unless you are wanting something totally different and edgy, as they seem to be very good at putting wild colors in hair.
"I made a 9:30 appointment on Saturday,
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
5th, and waited outside for 30 minutes because they were late to open. The
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
is also dirty. I know that it must be hard to clean off all the hair from the seats since they are shaped like cars but use a vacuum. Bring your own cleaning agent with you if you are going to try this place out.\
Unfortunately it is a great location and a great set up with the little cars for seats and the children[s shows playing but it is too dirty.

"I first saw

in April 2013 and submitted a review after my first visit. He was superb then and has continued to be each time I have seen him since. After carefully considering what I was looking for, he made suggestions for coloring/highlighting and a cut that were perfect. We have occasionally tweaked what he originally did based on what I was looking for or wanted to try, and I could not be more pleased with the results at each appointment. Prior to seeing

VIPs (including the wife of a previous Vice President), visiting dignitaries and was "on call" for services requested by the White House, especially during inaugural events. It truly was a seamless transition to

had me come to her lovely place of business which had a spa-like atmosphere, complete with aromatherapy and music. She did an initial consult while we discussed the procedure in detail. When I agreed to the procedure she gave me a list of pre-procedure steps and suggestions. On the day of the procedure, I took my eyebrow pencil and pictures of the kind of eyebrows I wanted. She sketched the eyebrows onto my face with erasable markers and kept measuring and working on them until I was satisfied. Then she cleaned and numbed the eyebrow area. While I was getting numb she mixed my color and adjusted it until I liked the color. Once I was numb, she began tattooing my eyebrows in. It was painless and the results were already wonderful. She gave me an after procedure cream and handout and scheduled my follow up appointment for possible touchup if needed.
"Entering the

I automatically relaxed. It was quiet, smelled fresh(not like hair chemicals or burning dryers), the seating is comfy,, water and coffee provided. The stylist space is really well used. Each station has ample room so you aren't on top of other clients.

consulted with me about my hair and the cut I wanted prior to wash. She analyzed my "situation" and made some great suggestions. Ended up with exactly what I wanted, beautiful cut, easy to manage. She showed me how to make the most of my straight iron and a few tips on how to make my hair look beautiful (I'm pretty low maintenance).

is very friendly and profession. She knows her stuff!!
One of the things that was attractive to me about this
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
is that each of the stylists has extensive continuing education.
I also like that they offer spa services. I always believe you get what you pay for. Prices here are a little higher than walk in places but what you get in return is so much more!
"I live in the neighborhood and a friend gave me a referral card (for a $10 discount) so I thought I would give
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
a try. I have very curly hair, so it's easy and forgiving to cut, but I find it's hard to get a good cut that feels cute.
Upon arriving, I was offered a something to drink and immediately felt very welcomed. I was in for such a surprise, too, as clients are treated to a short shoulder and neck massage as well as an aromatherapy session. After a hectic day at work, this was the BEST and so relaxing.
Although it was the first time
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
had cut my hair, she was very receptive to my input about what works and doesn't work for my hair. For instance, my bangs, if cut too will short shrink up really, really short (and look silly) when they dry.
Alva Hair Salons Provider Name Locked
did a great job to accommodate this, by leaving them a little longer and letting me know that I had a week to come back for an additional trim depending on what I thought. I did end up going back a few days later to have them snipped, but it was at no charge and they were perfect after that! I was very happy with the cut overall, the atmosphere, and the people in

. Although this was my first visit, I will certainly go back!
