Let me start by saying I am almost 30 years old and have never walked out of a salon happy with the way my hair was styled. They've always brushed out the curl and left me with a complete frizz ball, so I was quite happy that they washed and styled my hair via the curly girl method. I went for color, no cut, and had Gerri. I had read great reviews on her so I gave it a try. She was very sweet, but honestly, I'm not sure I would schedule an appointment with her again. I drove over an hour to get to the salon and arrived about 30 minutes early because I was trying to account for traffic. I can totally understand having to wait for my appointment time, but I waited almost an hour from my scheduled appointment time. And she never came over to introduce herself or apologize for running behind. Nothing. The receptionist actually put me in her chair (while the precious client's hair was still scattered all over the chair and floor). What's worse is she actually wasn't even done with her previous client so when they came back to her chair she had to sit him in the next chair over to finish. She never asked me my name, never introduced herself to me, just grabbed my hair and asked what we were doing. It was actually awkward and pretty unprofessional. During my appointment she continually interrupted me to speak to others and between coloring steps I had to wait almost 30-40 minutes while she helped other clients. What could have been an hour to hour and half appointment took almost three hours. I understand stacking appointments but after already waiting an hour myself to even get started, it was pretty frustrating. To be honest, I didn't feel like I was important to them as a client. As much as I liked finally walking out of a salon with gorgeous curls, I don't know if it's worth going back to this salon.
Love my cut!! Went from long curly locks to a shorter shoulder length and I couldn't be happier! Charlie did a phenomenal job and explained to me how to to style my specific hair type and length and which products to use. He even helped me decide which cut would look best with my hair type, thankfully, because I walked in clueless as to what I wanted. Had a great experience would definitely recommend planet curls %100! Thanks again Charlie!!
Great place to go if you really want to learn how to take care of your luscious locks. They really know how to take care of textured hair. Ask the questions because they have the answers. They're a bit more expensive that the traditional salons, but honestly, curly hair does not need to be cut as often as straight hair. I only go twice a year, so I'm cool with the cost. That's not to say that I would not appreciate it being less expensive, but oh well.I would comment that there was some confusion and they were understaffed. First, when I made my appointment, I made it for me and one of my friends who has never had a specialty cut on her curly hair. I was supposed to be with Gerri, the owner, and my friend was supposed to be with Macey. I did this so that we would not be waiting there on each other. Well, I got Macey and I had to tell Macey that my friend was there and that I was supposed to be with Gerri. My friend wound up getting Gerri, which was fine, but when we made the appointment, no one bothered to tell me that Gerri was $20 higher than the other stylists. I had originally asked to be booked with Stephanie and she is no longer there, so I was to get a 50% discount.When it came time to pay, I had to show them an email for them to honor the discount. First off, they offered this to me over the phone and even sent me an email to let me know. Second, when I mentioned it at the time of checkout, I was told that I had to show them the email. I had to go to my car to get my phone to show the email, but I felt this was a ridiculous thing. They should have just had better customer service and honored the discount. Why should I have to show them an email? They are the ones who mentioned it to me and how would I even know about it if they didn't tell me. And I tried to book both of us with Stephanie. I know my friend was not a repeat customer, but she should have gotten the same discount. As it is, they did give her the same price as the other stylists (which they should have done in the first place because she was originally booked with Macie, not me).At any rate, I don't feel that my friend was taught about how to take care of her locks. Stephanie really took the time to teach me about how to style, wash, and pamper my locks. I feel like my friend did not get the same type of coaching as me. She should have been talked to about the steps and been given the book to read, talked to about the products used, etcetera. All in all, I was disappointed in the way the service was handled for my first-time friend that will probably not go back because of her lack of training by them. On the other hand, I feel like Macey when above and beyond to give me a great cut and to style my hair. She used different products because I have tangling issues and she also got Gerri to show her how to cut some bulk out of my hair (I have so much hair).All in all, a great place as long as you ask some questions and are not rushed through the experience. Time should be taken with all of the customers and everyone that comes through there should be taught about their locks.
Was the first appt. of the day for Charlie. He did not show up for an hour. After the long wait, I was rushed through, since his next appt. had arrived. Nothing I was told to expect happened. No explanation of how to care for hair, what products to use....nothing. Will only return if I can get a different stylist. Very disappointed after my hour drive to get there.
Katie was my hair stylist. She was incredibly knowledgeable and gave me a great hair cut. I've had many bad experiences at salons before so I was really nervous. But my hair has never ever ever looked this good I cannot wait Togo back! I'm very impressed and the salon is so cute and artsy. The staff is really nice and sweet. And I definitely stocked up on devacurl products. I can't stop looking in the mirror I love my hair so much now!!!
I've been to the DevaCut salons in Soho and Whiteplains for a few times when I lived there. I visited PlanetCurls a couple of times and while the staff is certainly knowledgeable, friendly, and care about my hair, I was disappointed by the process. It was not cut curl by curl but brushed instead. The conditioning came afterwards. Gave 3 stars because my cut and color were fine but the stylist didn't use DevaCut techniques I was used to.
This is the worst haircut experience I have had in my life. It almost brought me to tears in the chair at the salon. I asked for a shoulder length hair cut, and within minutes I knew he (Charlie) had cut way too much off. When I pointed this out, he had he audacity to assure me it was shoulder length. The hair now curls just below my ears!!! My face turned beet red in the chair, and I couldn't even watch in the mirror. I can't stand the way I look, and I'll have to bear it for a few months while I wait for it to grow a little lengthier. I really wish I put up a fight about it and didn't pay, but I was so upset I just honestly wanted to get out of there. He at least could have admitted he messed up and apologized. I highly encourage others to explore a different option.
I've had a number of terrible experiences when it comes to getting my hair cut, but after going to Planet Curls I'll never go anywhere else. Charlie paid careful attention to what I wanted my curls to look like and took his time to make it happen. He spent time explaining how to use the products and how to style my hair. Every time I go in now, I give him artistic freedom to cut and style my hair and have yet to be disappointed. The other thing he's done is color it. He's definitely an artist. He hand paints my curls to make them pop. After 24 years of having no idea what to do with my curls, I've fallen back in love with my hair thanks to Charlie.
I was a week away from getting a Brazilian Blowout because my curls just looked terrible all the time when I decided to try Planet Curls. The transformation in my hair was amazing-I love my curls again! Gerri is also a pro at Pintura highlights. Whenever people stop me to compliment my hair and ask where I go I don't hesitate to tell them that Gerri at Planet Curls is the best!
Gerri did a great job with my coils. I love the shape and the attention she gave to every single curl. My hair was uneven and shapeless and she brought it back to life!
I went to planet curls some time ago and had a bad experience. Charlie was my stylist and he was over 45 minutes late. He lopped my hair off with giant curved shears. My hair looked exactly as it did before but shorter. I was very disappointed.
Brought my daughter here for her haircut this summer. She had previously had her hair cut at Devachan in NY. The stylist/owner at planet curls just lopped off her hair. Did not cut curl by curl. My daughter was extremely disappointed. Not worth the price. I have had better haircuts at Greatclips.
I've been going to Stephanie at Planet Curls for a while now and she's never let me down. It makes all the difference in the world when you find a stylist who knows and loves curls rather than spends her time trying to convince you to straighten your hair.She's friendly, knowledgeable, really listens to what you want, and talks you through what she's doing. She's taught me how to take care of and style my curls and she's not a product pusher but she has introduced me to some products that have really worked for me.I get compliments on my hair all the time. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I've had my hair cut by a Deva stylist in thepast and she was great but just too far to drive to. I found Salon Planet Curls through this website and so glad I did. I had Stephanie and she was great! She showed me another way of styling my curls that I really liked, she was not pushy and she listened to what I wanted. She also gave me an alternative to the way I was coloring my hair that I like so much better, Plus a bit less expensive than my last girl which was a plus. I'm headed back in the next few weeks for another cut.
I had to straighten my hair for several days until I really had time to figure out what had been done to my hair and make a plan to make it presentable. Since my DevaCut, I've noticed my curls look...weird... I have a few small curl clusters that are WAY shorter than the rest of my hair, and they look almost stringy. As far as the experience goes, when I got to Planet Curls and told them my name and appointment info, I was told Charlie (my scheduled stylist) called in sick and tried to call me to either cancel or reschedule... Considering Planet Curls is a 70 mile drive from me, I can assure you that call never happened. My stylist was friendly enough, other than telling me it was "embarrassing" to have to shave some of the back of my neck for the bob haircut I wanted. A different girl washed my hair, and though I asked to see how much of all the products she used and how she used them, I did not get any instruction. Overall, my experience with Planet Curls was a waste of my time and my money.
Stephanie was my stylist. This is the first time I got a cut from a trained curly hair professional. I'm Chinese with 3A/Botecelli curls and ALL Asian salons, Visible Changes, local salons for the past 30+ years of my life would wash, blow dry straight, flat-iron straight, and cut. Or wash, comb through, cut, and use a diffuser.. I'd leave with my hair tied up. Stephanie did a dry cut, washed and explained to me during the wash how important the process and products were, and then did some touch-up snips. It was the first time EVER that I walked out with beautiful, bouncy, healthy looking curly hair. AND it lasted in Houston's humid weather. AND I had great looking hair the next day after I slept on it... I'm so used to tying it up in a bun or braiding my second day hair and I didn't have to do that! AWESOME. She's laid-back, didn't do much fake small talk, didn't push products, and I learned so much on how to take care of my hair. Thank you Stephanie!
