I was happy that I used my groupon in time as I was told by the stylist that they were going out of business the following week.

Saco is worst place I've EVER been too. I believe a girl named Candace cut my hair. There was NO consultation. My coat and handbag was thrown into a chair near mine instead of hung up the closet. I was led directly from the front door to having my hair washed at the sinks stations. My hair is quite curly so usually a stylist sits me down and checks out the curl to determine how it should be cut, and asks me how I like to wear it. Only once my hair was all combed out straight and wet, she asked me what I wanted done. That doesn't count as a consultation in my books. Consultation happens BEFORE your hair gets washed. No suggestions were made. At this point I could see that this was an extremely low end salon pretending to be a high end one, and I was uneasy about letting this girl have much creativity, so I said that I was growing my hair out, and just to trim the dry ends so that my hair could continue to grow out. I have curly hair. The mark of a great salon is one that sends me out into the world with my hair styled the way I wear it every day (curly). Instead I was offered only a straight blow out. At this point, I just wanted this to be over, so I let her, and didn't ask her to do it properly. She proceeded to use a round brush, continually scraping my ears until I was audibly wincing, at which point she started to be a little more gentle. My hair was also getting wrapped around the handle of the brush, and getting pulled hard enough that I finally had to say something to her. When blowdrying the hair above my forehead, the stylist was surprised to find that I had a strong cowlick in the front, and my hair was not co-operating with the direction she was attempting to dry it. If I'd had a proper consultation before she'd washed my hair, she would have KNOWN this. Instead I ended up with a really poor blowout. I went to the counter after, tipped the stylist (I shouldn't have, but I hate confrontation, and I would have felt like a really jerk for not tipping) . Next, I went straight home and showered so that I could start from scratch on my hair for that day. (My appointment had been at 9 am, and I couldn't go through the rest of my day looking like that.) All in all, this is the worst experience I've ever had in a salon. Back in my college days, I had far better service at those "McCuts" mall places that at Saco. It is absolutely ludicrous that this Groupon had a $70 or $75 dollar value. My haircut was not worth the money I paid for the Groupon. You are providing a service to your client. Your job is to make me feel like a $70 haircut in your salon is great value, because of the wonderful SERVICE you provide. As it is, paying $35 for a Groupon feels like a giant rip off. I'm not telling you this because I want a free haircut, or free product. I really don't ever want to come back to your business again. My husband and I own our own business. We know that customer service is the #1 driver of our business. I'm giving you this feedback because as a small business owner, you SHOULD want to know this. We certainly would want to know if someone felt this way about our business, and we would take steps immediately to improve our service. Good luck to you. There are a lot of salons in this city, and I'd guess that you won't be able to operate in this manner for long.

My stylist was not very friendly and did not even ask what I would like for example color of highlights. She just went ahead and did them.

The hair dresser did not color my hair well. There is spots not colored and the color is uneven. While she was cutting my hair, I felt she did not listen to what I was saying. The reseptonist was not not very friendly either.

Not well trained or experienced stylists/colorists. Will not return as this was a case of 'you get what you pay for'.

I think the salon is great! It is very clean, and the staff seem friendly. I did not appreciate that my hairdresser was late.. I was his first appointment of the day. I think he did an ok job on my hair, but it usually takes me some time to feel comfortable with a hair cut. There was a lot of nice work going on around me! I think I would go back, but perhaps request a different stylist.

From Our Editors

Each Saco Hair salon is attached to its own style academy, allowing the scissor artists on staff to keep abreast of the latest cutting and styling techniques. The staff stylists wield environmentally conscious products such as Kevin Murphy and Pureology as they revamp manes with pixie cuts and lengthy layers, and their deft hands release tension with a shiatsu head massage before each hair transformation, calming change-phobic patrons still reeling from demise of the beehive trend. While imbuing manes with vibrant new hues, the stylists employ ammonia-free colouring products from L'Oréal Professional’s INOA line to secure deep-chestnut tints and golden-blond shades.
