The only reason I give it four stars is due to scheduling mix ups and last minute changes. Other than that, my hair looked awesome and my stylist was sweet and accommodating.

I purchase a blow out thinking they were going to give me this amazing voluminous hair do. Nope...my hair dresser just simply blow dry my hair, it was no "blow out". She blamed it on my hair being too long...so she couldn't add the volume. She attempted to give volume by curling my hair with a medium wand barrel. My hair do turned into a head of curls not a voluminous blow out.

Got a blow out and ended up disappointed. I have short ish hair and ended up with like a mushroom look. I had to redo my hair. I had taken a break from coming here and don't think I will come back. There are better blow dry bars in Raleigh

Love this place! They do an amazing job with anything from blowouts to color! I've been going here for 2+ years and I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else.

If I could do a separate review for the salon, and for the stylist... they would be drastically different. The salon is in an awesome location in downtown Raleigh next to my favorite spots and restaurants, is very chic and aesthetically appealing. Their initial service caters to you, asking if you would like anything to drink (wine, fruit teas etc.) It is overall a buzzing, pretty place. My actual service, however, was mediocre at best. I could have done a better job myself at home, but I wasn't too upset, remembering the price I paid with the groupon. For one, the blowout took twice as long as it normally does. The stylist (who actually said she wasn't a stylist yet... I know I should have ran after that) was very light handed in washing and blowing out my hair, proceeded to straighten instead of blow dry and then straighten curly parts. She also combed curly parts into the straight parts, not at all creating the sleek, bone straight look I've gotten before. She was very personable and nice, just not the best at dealing with curly hair. I would not return to her chair.
