Best Experience EVER!!! – I just had the best experience today at Gel Salon with Raessa! I am always so nervous to try a new salon but Raessa instantly put me at ease. She is AMAZING and is by far one of the easiest people to talk to. I had had a really long day and was looking forward to getting my haircut over with so I could go home and relax; however, once I met Raessa I felt like I had known her forever, she just has that great personality. She was so upbeat and and energetic and she knew exactly what I needed. My hair looks and feel great! I would very HIGHLY recommend going to Gel Salon to see Raessa! The salon is beautiful and the staff is great!
Great cut, great color, and stunning Stylist! – When Nikki first opened her salon last year I thought, ?Boy, this girl does have guts. New salon, tough economy and the only Stylist there?. But she has prevailed and doing so has opened her doors to other stunning Stylist that have the same confidence and brilliance as she does.
Recently Nikki brought in Raessa from another high-end salon. Always loyal to my stylist, I of course followed. Raessa does the best foils of low lights and high lights combined and as usual works her magic for the type of hair that she happens to have in front of her. Great service, the price was better than the ?other? salon and best of all was the location!
I?ve rebooked two months in advance with Raessa.
I must say that Diane, who conveniently did not mention that the client was her very small daughter who screamed and yelled everywhere they went. From Panera where I first saw them then to the salon. I felt so bad for the stylist as Diane and her child whirled in like a tornado, unchecked and reeking havoc. Diane even boasted how the last place she took her daughter the stylist butchered it. Sounds like Diane really needed to take her daughter to a place where they only do screaming yelling children who won?t sit still and won?t charge her a dime.
Chop Shop - Worst salon experience in life time – Went to Gel Salon for the first time, and will never go back. Received a hair cut that was 2 to 3 inches shorter than the shoulder length hair cut that we discussed. Once it's cut you can't glue it back on. Once it was washed at home, I determined that it was completely uneven with big chunks missing.
The owner said to let her know if there was anything she could do. I asked for a refund, and then the plesantries stopped and she became completely belligerent.
If you want extremely poor quality service with an attitude this is the place to go. You can cut your own hair without a mirror and do a better job! Don't make this mistake, you will regret it for the next 6 to 8 months or at least until your hair grows out.
Gel Spa is my only therapy – It took years for me to trust someone to cut and color my hair. I am a nurse and have learned to take care of others. Nikki takes care of me. My time in the salon is relaxing and It is the only time that I spend feeling completely pampered. She always listens to my suggestions and I have not been disappointed. Her staff is pleasant and the salon is just beautiful. If you want to feel good, look good, and do something special just for you or for your family and friends, I recommend a visit to Gel Spa. You won't regret it.
Cosider her the A-LIST for stylists! And has ORGANIC color!!!! – I searched for a hairdresser my whole life that would do what I wanted NOT what they wanted! And I found that person in Niki! I have since enjoyed a 12 year relationship with her every 5 weeks and have NEVER walked out disappointd , or worse...embaressed!!! She always listens and interprets my wishes perfectly. She also tells you what your hair can and can't do and still look good. She has always known what my hair needs and adjusts accordingly and keeps my cut up to date. I would fly to China to have her do my hair! I was thrilled to try her new line of ORGANIC hair color when I wanted a more natural approach. She always bends over backwards to work with your schedule also. Remeber to book early! She is ver popular and unlike other stylists-she never looses clients. Consider her the A-list for stylists in wake county and consider yourself priveledged to be on her client list. If you want people to notice your hair-she is the one. WEEKLY, I am stopped and asked about my cut and or color. She can give you that new make-over look you have always wanted! P.S. She also has a personality that alsways uplifts you! The salon is also beautiful and very convenient to get to. You get what you pay for, and for me, the confidence I have in her abilities makes it well worth it!! Try it-you will see!! KG
The color referred to in the above review is an Italian color that contains natural ingredients such as nettle extract, yarrow extract, coltsfoot extract, rosemary extract, sage extract, birch extract and horsetail extract. People with sensitivity to color have reported less irritation with this color. The brand does not claim to be organic.
Great service – I have been chased down in grocery stores, my childs school at work and asked about my hair cut. I don't have to do anything to it. It doesn't get any better than that in my eyes. The last time a fellow co-worker asked me for her card while we were working in California. Good thing I travel with her cards...
