Hair Salon reviews in Forest Lake

    Roxy's Total Image
    I went here the day before my Birthday to have my hair lightened to a blonde from a faded blonde. When I arrived, I had to wait nearly an hour to be seen (which happened the previous 2 times that I came here, but I disregarded it because I get that we're human and we make mistakes sometimes.) During this most recent visit, I showed Paige about 10 different images of how I wanted my hair to look. I told her that I wanted it to be lighter than it currently was, and I was very clear about that fact because I've been on a long journey to color my hair up from a brown. (The last thing I'd want to do is work backwords.) She continuously suggested weaving in a darker color and I declined, as she was worried about the roots growing out too quickly (which I'm not concerned about). She ended up grabbing another stylist to talk to me who also pressured me into weaving in another color that I didn't want for the same reason. Eventually we came to a happy medium, and I said I'd like to weave in a slightly different color blonde for dimension, as long as it's lighter than my current hair color was. She said the color would make my hair lighter like the pictures I showed her, and I trusted her. As she began working on my hair, I could tell she became rushed as the end of the night approached, because she had to grab another stylist to paint the other side of my hair while she painted the other. She also told me she didn't have time to cut my hair that night as originally scheduled and asked if that was okay. This made me incredibly defeated. They werent taking their time with my hair and I could see them being sloppy with the application in comparison to how they've colored my hair in the past. When she began pulling the foils out, I could feel myself crying inside. I didn't know what to say or do.. What do you say when someone that just spent the last 2 hours being kind to you, telling you about how they love what they do, and about their life, and awkwardly how they almost quit their job because they messed up on someone elses hair recently? I didnt say anything at this point, because I was hoping that after my hair dried, it would become lighter than I realized. I could see by her face and how her words fell to silence as the color came through that something wasnt right. We exchanged no words when she put the toner in my hair (that I didnt ask for, but paid for) and rinsed it out. When I got up from the sink and looked over at the mirror, my hair was heartbreakingly dark. I coudnt believe it. My hair was darker than it had ever been in my life.. I was shocked. I didn't know what to say, I liked Paige, but I didn't want to hurt her feelings either... When she asked me what I thought, and I told her it wasn't at all what I wanted, trying not to show I was about to cry. She asked what wasn't right, and I had to tell her that this was the opposite of what I asked her, that my hair is darker than it has ever been in my life. She told me to wait a moment while she went to grab someone who I think was Roxy. Roxy asked what was wrong, and I repeated the above story. She said it should lighten up with a couple washes, but it looks really pretty and I should go ask what my friends and family think. (Of course they would say they like my hair.) I however didn't like it, and and I was now stuck with hair I hated for my birthday with no hair cut. Roxy told me I could come back in for a 're-do' and that I would not be charged when I do. (Even though I had to pay for what happened to my hair that night + treatment & toner I didn't ask for). It took a lot of courage to schedule the re-do this week, because I wasnt sure if I could trust them again, and I didnt want to hurt Paiges feelings. When I scheduled my appointment, I explained what happened and when everything took place, and she said the same thing happened to her and it was totally okay! Today I come to my re-do appt and they say they can't honor it because it's past 1 week of the error!!! They never told me when I needed it done by! I'm hurt and at a complete loss for words!!!

    Salon is clean and well-managed. I had made the appointment 2 weeks ahead of time, when I got to the salon the hair stylist was ready and waiting for me. My stylist was Ashley, I didn't know quite what I wanted for a cut and she made some great suggestions. Hair coloring turned out great and I loved the cut. Ashley was professional and efficient, I will definitely use this salon again.

    A Cut Above
    Karen Johnson is great.  The shop "A Cut Above" is small, but cozy, warm and friendly.  I moved to Minnesota from Michigan in June of this year, and was looking for this type of shop.  They are professional, down to earth, timely, and never pushy.  They always listen to you. I have had 3 appointments with Karen 3 times since I came to Forest Lake, MN, and was so pleased I brought my college age daughter with me in August.  My daughter - who is very fussy - was extrememly pleased with Karen also. Karen is very, very good, and the price is extremely reasonable. My daughter's hair is quite long, so the color and cut was around $75. Can't be beat!
    If you are looking for good service in a small shop that is super friendly , and is reasonably priced and very, very good, this is the place for you!  I have recommened Karen Johnson to others I have met in Forest Lake, MN.
