you must try this salon! – i've been looking for a new salon for some time, so i looked on city search to read some reviews. i decided to try sling blades based on what other people had to say, and they were right! this is the most beautiful and comfortable salon i think i've ever been in. i walked in not really knowing what i wanted to try with my hair, Leigh was my stylist and she took the time to go through some books and make suggestions on what she thought would work best on my hair. between the two of us we came up with a cut that i love.. this is one of few salons filled with friendly faces, and you can actually feel how this team works together. if you try sling blades you will never go anywhere else!
Wow – What a beautiful salon. I felt like I was in New York. I just want to say that any African-American woman looking for someone to take care of their hair, get it to a healthy state with minimal product---any woman really, then Helen is your girl!!! In fact all the stylists were very helpful and really nice. Great Job!!!
The Best Facial Ever! – I scheduled a facial with Kristi and she was great. She educated me on my skin's health and it needs. She made me realize how much my skin represents my health. She removed every blackhead and gave me the best enzyme exfoliation. My skin still feels super soft and smooth. Thanks Kristi, I will definately be back.
SUPERB HAIR CARE BY HELEN – Helen is an excellent hair-care provider, and I could never imagine going to anyone else. She works with all hair types, in particular African-American women's hair. Her styles are always professional, and most important, she is concerned about the health of my hair. Since she became my stylist, my hair has become much thicker and stronger. Relaxers, color, cuts -- Helen does it all exceptionally well!
Best salon experience ever! – I went to Sling Blades for the first time today because they were having a special on hair cuts. I was really impressed by the decor and couldn't believe that I didn't have to wait to be seen. Helen may possibly be the best stylist I've experienced. She looked through my hair and analyzed its condition and told me what I would need to have done. She deep conditioned my hair, washed it, and cut it. Afterwards my hair looked the best it ever has! The service was fast and extremely professional. I would highly recommend Helen (especially for the African American ladies) but all of the other stylists I observed seemed to be really great as well. I plan to return to Sling Blades soon!
Rachel is the real deal – I have VERY thick and hard to manage hair. Every other salon I've been to the stylist will just eventually give up (and I thought that was a given) while coloring and cutting my hair. However, Rachel took the time (5 hours!) needed to make sure all the layers were colored evenly and the cut was distributed well. She also made it fun for me because I could tell even though she was working hard at my hair she still made it a good experience for me because of how long it took. Seriously every other stylist I've been to they would start coloring for an hour and then would rush which makes me nervous about the outcome. Rachel made me feel comfortable and relaxed while being professional. I can't stress enough how awesome she is and I will definitely be back!
Great service and style – I have been seeing Shelley for several years, and would highly recommend her services. She is always willing to try something new and incorporates the latest color and cutting techniques. There have been several times that I have brought her a picture of what I want my hair to look like, and she always nails it! What I love best is that her cuts are so good, I receive compliments on my hair not only right after the service, but up until I'm ready for my next trim. The atmosphere at Sling Blades is very calm and serene so you don't have that loud, hectic feeling like at many hair salons. I definitely feel pampered and like I leave looking my very best.
Great atmosphere and great service! – I was highly impressed with the service I received at Sling Blades. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is wonderful and the salon is beautiful inside. I saw the Master designer, Shelley, and she was so much fun. She was very helpful at finding a new color and style that would best suite my personality. I am very pleased with my new look and highly recommend this salon to everyone!
Editorial Review – Loft-esque hair salon, Sling Blades Hair Design, specializes in daring razor cuts, Wella hair color, and waxing.
BEST STYLE and COLOR - NO MATTER WHAT – How do you define a great style? Some people think it has to do with the brushes and combs one uses after the cut is done. Some people think it's all about a special hair product or color combination. However, I've decided it's something entirely different. It's how the style responds to ANY adverse situation from humidity to lack of tools. In my case, two weeks ago, I had my routine style and color done at Sling Blades. I had my usual GREAT service and FANTASTIC CARE. It's so easy to take that for granted once you've found it. However, yesterday, I woke up in a hotel room, had my shower and realised I had forgotten my hair brush as well as other styling tools. I was going to an important meeting and had no time to replace these items and get to my appointment. There was no comb in my bag either. Fearing a BAD HAIR DAY, I used what I had: a little bit of hair spray and hair mousse. So using my fingers to work the mousse through my hair, I then blow-dried my hair and used a bit of spray. My hair isn't super short either. It's about four or five inches or so in length, down to the collar of my shirt. I would call my look high maintenance. But with that little bit of work, in FIVE MINUTES, I looked just as great as if I had used my styling brush and combs for the usual fifteen. What was that then? Just another taken for granted GREAT STYLE from Sling Blades. So guys and gals, if you want to avoid a bad hair day when the unexpected happens, I suggest getting your Style from Sling Blades.
