Rincon >Beauty > D Salon
Nice salon with friendly people. In the interest of supplying perspective customers with review that does not reek of personal bias, I would like to tell you a little bit about The Salon. Having not been a customer before the management change, I cannot speak to the difference. However, I can tell you that the staff I have encountered at The Salon have been nothing but professional and friendly. I regularly use the same stylist, but I have not heard anyone behaving "trashy" or seen anyone be anything but kind to all patrons. I feel quite comfortable bringing my children with me for appointments since they have a movie room in the back. Please do not base your decision to visit The Salon on the negative reviews from those who obviously took the management change personally. Stop by and see for yourself.
The Purple Cow is NOT in business anymore.. The Salon is the new name and under new managers. I hated. It is awful. The vibe is negative and unfriendly. They said hi when I came in but just stared at me with a snarl. I went to get just a hair trim and Rebeca used a razor on me. There are chunks that are to my scalp. While I sat there getting a cut Rebeca kept talking ghetto. I am not sure if she knew she was white. She stunk of cigarrettes. If you are going to smoke, then please wash your hands and gargle please. She said she just liked to have fun when she worked but it was white trash. So I got greeted with reluctance, a shotty hair cut, a white trash show and stinky cigarrettes for my service. I wont be back and I will be going back to my old stylist. The only reason I thought I'd try this place was that my hair person went way up on her prices. You get what you pay for and I not only wont be back but will tell everyone not to go. I didn't really get the name of The Purple Cow, but The Salon is a terrible name anyway. I should've known better. The best places I have been to in Rincon are Studio 21 or Glaze.
Still There but new name. First of all, the owner, Jennifer, sold the salon and the new name is The Salon. (how original is that?) Jennifer and Johnna are still there, but somone from Studio 21 bought it. I have used both Johnna and Jennifer. They do great hair so it just depends on who can get me as to who I go to. They are really good and very nice. I would give 5 stars but I can't. I used to love this salon. I loved the name and the decorations and the people. It was comfortable and inviting. I hate the decorations now. It is dark and just doesn't fit. I hate the name, but I love most of the girls there. Some of the girls are friendly. I happen to know one of the other girls there, Becky, and she is great too. I've gone to Studio 21 and left it for several reasons and I was upset some of those girls bought it, but I wont stop going. I would use, Johnna, Jennifer, or Becky.
Some people lack class. Your review was absolutely terrible! None of the material about Johnna is true and i know that for certain, considering i have known Johnna for almost ten years and never heard anything about her having an affair. And we talk almost every day. Secondly, Johnna is the friendliest, most helpful, most caring individual i have ever met. She is a great friend and is extremely dependable. In my personal opinion Johnna is the best hair stylist there, and that is no offense to the others there, it's just my personal opinion. Lastly, I believe the salon wouldn't be as fantastic of an environment if Johnna wasn't there... Johnna is the greatest!
The nerve of some people!. U4beal needs to grow up and get a life! What does anyones personal life have to do with how they do hair. I think they are using this as a way to personally attack someone. I have gone to what used to be "The Purple Cow" for several years and I love Jennifer and Johnna. I have never had any bad experiences at the salon. Some people just need to learn when to SHUT UP! It is no longer "The Purple Cow" , it is under new ownership, but Jennifer and Johnna both still work at the salon. I would recommend both of them to anyone I know to do their hair. I will continue to use them as long as they are doing hair. As long as my hair looks good and I am treated kindly and with professionalism, who cares what goes on outside of the salon. Unless you just have nothing better to do with your time!
Don't Close. I am so upset. I never thought I would se this place close. I have loved this salon and have been coming here for years. I have never had a bad anything here. Jennifer is the best hairstylist I have ever been to. I have used people in Savannah from the best salons and Jennifer has done my hair better than they ever did and cheaper. She is also treated me better than anyplace ever has. I am so sad. I know she said she was staying in hair, but I can't help but feel that she doesn't have to close the salon. I told her 5 years ago to get rid of Johnna and she was ruining her business. But she wouldn't do it. Johnna is not friendly. I have been coming here for over 7 years and not once has she spoken to me without me speaking first. She wears tight tops and dresses like trash. She is always texting on her phone and looks like she is mad at the world when she even works. She is having an affair with my friends' husband and has been living with him for months. I think that if she would leave the salon then Jennifer could keep it open. Keep it open, Jennifer. We love your shop. We love you! The best stylists you ever had there was Jamie, Shanna, Autum, and the little brown haired girl. You need people with personality. Not people that don't care. we love you and will follow you wherever you go, but hope you will keep the salon open.
I LOVE The Purple Cow!.
I love going to the Purple Cow and have been since it first opened. I honestly can't remember how long ago that was. I've only ever had my hair done by Jennifer and Anna.
Jennifer has been cutting mine and my brother's, Matthew, hair for a long long time now. He and I both are always extremely satisfied.
Anna has colored my hair twice, and bless her heart, seriously. I have very THICK CURLY hair, and it takes about 3-4 hours to color it completely, and I'm always satisfied with it when she's finished!
I love when they wash your hair and rub your head, plus all the shampoo and conditioners make your hair smell GREAT!
Any time I have a special event to go to, I always go to the Purple Cow to get my hair styled. They always do an excellent job.
I highly recommend this salon to everyone, and do any time someone asks me where they should go!
The Purple Cow is AMAZING.
I use this salon very regularly (when I have the money that is) and every time I feel like every person in the place, especially Jennifer (the wonderful Owner) are good friends.
They offer you something to drink most of the time, and they pay very close attention to how you would like your hair. If they do have a negativity towards what you are leaning towards they will tell you straight up what could be a better choice rather then possibly making a mistake. Of course they know it is your decision, but as hairstylists they also like to give good tips.
They are very very good at hair cutting and the coloring process is wonderful.
I will always keep The Purple Cow my salon. They are 100% worth going to. They will make you feel at home and make you feel great about your hair!
Great Salon. I just vistied this Salon yesterday for the 1st time and all i can say is WOW! This Salon is so nice. It has a very unique look. The girls are very personable. Shanna was my stylist and she was great. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and she did a perfect job. Jennifer the owners of the Salon was there and she also took time to talk to me, and get to know me. I will be back for sure and I will also recommend everyone I know to Purple Cow.
Response to Hometowngirl from Owner.
This is a response from the owner to a review and not a review itself.
Rhonda Mcdonald, I am so very sorry you were not happy with our services. I do my very best to make sure that everyone that comes in to the salon is not only happy with their hair, but I also want it to be a very pleasant experience for them. There are 3 sides to a story: yours, mine and the truth. So I feel the need to respond to your review. There were definately problems in communication from the start. When I asked Kim about her color techniques, I wasn't concerned. I have been to many hair shows, advanced classes, Academies and camps and not one of these classes did the same techniques. It is why this business is so artistic. The reason that Kim asked me the price of your services was that she had just started with the salon and was not familiar with them. (Surely, you remember your first day at a new job? Having to learn their policies.) I quoted her for color, highlites and a haircut. I believed you'd gotten a cut. When you pointed out the mistake, I gave you the money back. No problem. We have never purposely overcharged anyone. When you left the salon the first time, you told Kim you liked it. You got home and called about 5 days later and hated it. That was no problem. I happily agreed to re-do your hair. You made an appointment with me.You came in for your appointment with me and cancelled at exactly your appointed time stating you now liked your hair as it had faded. Most people cancel at least 24 hours in advance, as a courtesy, so that we can fill the open time slot. I wasn't given that opportunity and lost money. You stated that you were scared that lightening your hair would cause further damage, but I could've lightened it one shade without damaging your hair. But I understand your concern. You rescheduled an appointment for me for a few weeks later. You, again, showed up for your appointment and again cancelled with me saying you really did like it. Now, this is twice that you'd made an appointment with me and cancelled at the exact time you were to be there leaving me no time to fill the open time slot and lost money. Still, I am wanting you to like your hair and to be happy. You re-schedule again. This time you follow through, only I am very sick and in a lot of pain. You asked for someone else to do you. You asked about getting one shade lighter than what your orignal formula was and I said it would look great. I mixed the formula and by the time Lindsay started to put it in your hair, you changed you mind. I was going to re-mix it and you said no. My mistake was to not stick with your original color. As for not getting chunks in your hair, you told her what you wanted, not me. You realized 2/3 of the way into it because you were telling us about your neighbor that was stalking you. So for the 2nd time, you don't like your hair. By this time, I felt a little better and did it myself. I didn't offer you a conditioner treatment because I was not myself. I was very sick. The only reason I stayed was to make sure you were happy. So I sincerely apologize for not giving you one as you did deserve it. While, I am sorry that we are not the salon for you and you were not happy, I feel that certain things could've been handled better. I also believe that while having you unhappy is not my intent or goal, your one negative review versus 14 positive reviews in my book represents success. Other people can decide, you are correct. I sincerely wish you happiness, peace and joy.
