Von Kekel is awesome – Von Kekel is a great salon and spa find! I have been to a few salons in the area, and just didn't find a good fit with a salon and stylist. I am so happy I found Von Kekel. My stylist, Ashleigh, at Von Kekel does a great job with my hilight/lowlight combination as well as my cut. I have also had brow waxing done, which was also great. They are a busy salon, but I have always found the girls at the front very professional and helpful, but it can be crazy busy at times especially on Saturdays, which I guess is a good thing...
Not what it should/could be – I love my stylist here (Shannon). She has been attentive to me and all my hair needs, repairing a disastrous color I got from another salon. However, the staff at the front have REALLY turned me off. Even the owner seems totally clueless about service and attitude. He ignores customers, doesn't make eye contact, and makes you feel like it's beneath him to speak to you! The staff at the front act like you are bothering them by coming to the desk. They need to read these reviews, and turn over a new leaf. I am going to go someplace else just because I am so offended by them every time I go in there. NOT a warm reception!!
Don't waste your time or money! – My husband and I recently had our hair cut at Von Kekel and we were both unpleasantly surprised by how bad our hair cuts were. The stylist who cut my husband's hair buzzed the back of his hair line into a bowl shape. And left some areas completely untouched. All my stylist had to do was cut layers into my long hair which turned into a disaster (I will have to let it grow out for months). Don't waste your money here - they are all about the facade of looking good and they are EXPENSIVE! Salon Blu just opened beside the new Harris Teeter across the street - I will try them next time for sure!
DO NOT GET YOUR HAIR DONE HERE!!! – I recently moved from Ohio, where I got my hair done at an Aveda salon. I had nothing but excellent experiences there, thinking it would be the same at Von Kekel. Boy, was I wrong!! First of all, the woman behind the desk was extremely rude, not to mention inappropiately dressed and sloppy for a "high end" salon. Second, my stylist was almost a half hour late for my appointment and I felt I was rushed and taking up her time. I was also charged almost 60 dollars for a cut my three year old could have done a better job at. I can understand if the stylist could have had an off day, however I was discusted and unsatisfied with my overall experience. I mentioned I was not happy to the same woman at the desk, who snobbily mentioned I can come in next time and speak with the owner. To anyone considering this horrible salon....DON'T!!! Save your money AND your pride. And Save your hair!!!
I LOVE Megan! – I have been a client of Megan at Von Kekel since 2005 and have never left as an unhappy client. Megan's cut and color are always so good that on TWO occasions I had other salon owners ask me who did my hair and offer me their business cards to pass on to my stylist. Even though I now live in Europe, I still fly to the U.S. to get my hair done by Megan, my favorite stylist of all time. She is that good. If you need your spirits lifted and a very good cut an color, RUN do not walk to Megan at Von Kekel on Lassiter Mill!!!!!!!!!!
Would not recommend Megan – Upon going to Von Kekel, I was under the impression that it was a "high end" salon, I could not have been more disappointed. The service alone at this salon is equivalent to Fantastic Sams. The stylist I was given, Megan, in my opinion, did a very poor job for a "licensed stylist". First of all, I feel if you want to be takin seriously in the beauty world, your hair should reflect that. I was not impressed with her hair style, it looked slightly purple and the style was unattractive. So I was a bit weary having her as a stylist. Overall the experience was awful, the salon was awful, and I was not impressed by the stylist. Would not recommend and I will not be back!
You have to go see Vida! – I have lived in Raleigh all my life and have tried several different salons and stylists looking for the perfect one and I finally found that in Von Kekel and Vida. She listens to exactly what kind of cut I want and gives me just that. She is definitely worth making an appointment with...you will not be disappointed!
I love Vida!! I won't go to anyone else! – I moved to Raleigh over two years ago and thought I would never find anyone to replace my hair stylist in Wilmington. I am happy to say I have found someone. I have been going to see Vida Plating for over a year now and I am always happy with my hair color and cut. My co- worker is always impressed with how close Vida is able to get to the roots...she really takes her time. I would recommend Vida to anyone who is looking for a great stylist who is also fun and easy to talk to!
Great Place - Vida is AWESOME !!! – My wife and I recently moved to Raleigh and she went through a couple of Salon's before she found Von Kekel and more importantly, she found Vida. My wife is so pleased with her hair and it does look better than it ever has.
I have been unblessed with a terrible head of hair and gave up a long time ago on getting a good haircut.
My wife insisted that I go to Vida because she does mens' hair.
Vida listened to how I wnated it cut and she does it perfectly. I am so pleased because my hair now looks great - even my wife says so.
Vida is so sweet and does such a good job that I would reccomend her to any man that needs a good haircut.
I have never been more pleased with my hair now that I go to Vida.
She does an excellent job !
An Awesome Experience – Vida is the best! She is the only one who has been able to help me find a cut that is versatile and still tame my curly hair!! Her blowouts are fabulous! I highly recommend this salon~I love that it is "green" as well! Ask for Vida-she will hook you up with the perfect cut!! I am definitely not an employee of Von Kekel, just a very satisfied customer. I think that people can form their own opinions. Go there, meet Vida and you will not be disappointed.
