Very surprised and very impressed 9/7/2011

I went in going off of what I saw on here in terms of reviews. I was nervous because I have very long hair and have always gotten the same type of cut. Layers, not too short and it always came out the same. I went in today and told him very vague details and my hair turned into model-type hair. It had so much body and movement and I felt like a million bucks leaving. Mikhail did a great job and knows what he is doing. The staff was very friendly and easy to talk to as well. If you want an amazing cut that won't break your wallet in a great part of Scottsdale, this salon is the place to go. more

just great haircut 1/11/2011

Mikhail of Etro Salon does wonder with hair. I have quite long hair and was nervous to head up for a hair-dresser I have never been to. He was worth every penny. Not only is he extremely talented but also very down to earth person. He is so open to provide his views, opinions and takes time to provide options. Simply best !! Just a great, very experienced guy. Worth every shot !! Amid more

Communication is vital 11/15/2010

With all due respect to the client who reviewed the salon below her information is quite inaccurate. First of all, the cut that was given to her was the exact replica of the picture that she came in with. Before the cut she never indicated that she did not want her hair to be cut short. Why bring a picture and tell the stylist to give you this type of hair cut if it isn?t what you want. The hair cut in the picture and the one she received was very chic and stylish and not cut short at all. Honestly, her hair cut was only modified to improve her look. If you want readers to be the judge of the haircut please post a picture of yourself and the picture brought in. One of the most vital parts of our client/stylist relationship is communication, so if you do not wish for a short haircut you need to communicate it. more

So Disappointed 11/15/2010

I needed a last minute haircut and called this salon.I got Mikile who seemed willing to please and I was grateful he took me at the last minute. I brough in two pictures of what I wanted and while he gave me a beautiful haircut, there is only one huge probem. Its not the haircut for me or what I asked for. He completely disregarded what I wanted and asked for. My hair is so short, I hate this and now I have to let it grow out. I really hate how short this is and would have never agreed to do this short. Thats why I brough the picture. Funny thing is, he thought the pic was good for my hair as well, so why did he do this so short and differently that I asked for. Its to bad because I think he does have a talent, but Im am soooo upset. I cannot go back there. Then on the way out he said communication is what would make it happen, that is correct, so why is it he does not follow his own advice. I did communicate prior to the haircut and he disregards this. I guess his getting the business is not so important. He did what he wanted one time and lost what could have been a very good client. I cant tell you how unhappy I am. Mikile, you need to listen to your clients and do something to make up for the ones that are so unhappy. Its going to take months to grow out and I really wanted something I could live with now. more

Fantastic color!! 2/16/2010

I moved out here almost a year ago from Tennessee and had to find a new stylist after having the same person doing my hair for almost a decade. I read some reviews online and decided I would give Polly a try. I have a lot of extremely thick and curly hair and she not only does a beautiful job blending different color tones into my hair, but she never misses a single hair on my head! She can even do a beautiful blowout when she's done. I'm definitely glad I took the chance a year ago! She's worth it!! more

Best. Haircut. Ever! 1/27/2010

I have had shoulder length or longer hair for almost my entire life and always I have asked for the same basic cut. Long layers, face framing wisps, no ""bangs"", not too much off the length and something I can blow straight or make wavy. Amazing how many ""experts"" I have been to where the cut looks great leaving the salon and then falls flat when I try to style it on my own. I've had stylists leave me with uneven layers and choppy mops. When Mikhail proclaimed my explanation of the cut, ""simple"" I have to admit that I raised an eyebrow. Was he going to give me more of the same? He did not. He gave me the best, layered, face-framing look I have ever had. I felt like a Victoria Secret model leaving the place. And the best part is that I have been able to style it myself!! I actually look forward to doing my hair now!! AMAZING!!! I'm only sad that I just moved to San Diego and won't be able to come to salon Etro anymore. Unless, of course, I plan to fly back to visit family AND get a haircut. Which, would be WELL WORTH IT!!! Pros: Expert cut, upretentious environment Cons: n/a more

color and curls 9/2/2009

I have experienced some of the best salons/boutique salons in Southern California and Arizona-Gary is, without a doubt, the best at listening to what the client wants. I have crazy curls and like a lot of depth in my color and he was able to deliver exactly what I envisioned. I recently relocated to Denver but I'm thinking it is only a short 75 minute flight back for a visit! more

unbelievable - and not in a good way 8/8/2009

I went in to get my roots done. I was there on time. Gary was an hour late. I got a ""free conditioning treatment"". I don't like sitting in a salon, so I wasn't happy. Gary finally shows up for consult. I had the feeling from the very beginning that I should just leave, but I didn't. My hair is wet at this point, so he really can't see the color to match it. He picks a color and just starts putting it in my hair - no paintbrush, no sectioning. Said he didn't use a brush because of carpal tunnel - again I should have left - but didn't. My hair is all mangled and tangled. Now it's going on 2 hours that I'm sitting in there for a root job only. Under the dryer, back up, under the dryer. I don't know if you can apply color to wet hair - I'm doubting it. Finally I get up - ""Is this done yet?"" Gary says ""Well how light do you like your roots?"" What?? How about light enough to match my hair color? At this point, unbelievably, I have spent 3 hours in this salon! Long story long, I washed my hair for the first time last night. Today I have all my roots back, my hair is really brassy and I can't believe it! If it looks like a horse, and it smells like a horse, it's a horse. Get up when you know it is not right and leave the salon. I spent $85 for nothing. Do go just to save a few bucks, you'll pay in the end. Cons: Bad service, bad job, time consuming, ripped off more

Mikhail and Gary are Amazing!!!! 4/26/2009

. Well, I just had a baby a few months ago, and before I went into the salon I was feeling out of style, frumpy, and almost depressed with my appearance (from the neck up). I read the reviews of beauty bar and decided to give Mikhail and Gary a try. I figured they couldn?t make me any uglier than I already was feeling. Right off the bat, Mikhail made me feel very comfortable and I had complete trust in his thought of what type of hair style would like nice and fit my lifestyle. To say that Mikhail and Gary gave me the best hair of my life is an understatement!!! I don?t think I will ever find better hair stylist?s EVER! If they moved to the moon, I would go there to get my hair done by them. I will never go any ware else again...EVER! When I got into my truck with my husband he said ""I didn?t even recognize you...that is the best hair I have ever seen you with"". I was thinking to myself ?Mission Completed...I look hot again? LOL. But anyways, if you are looking for a haircut and or color, Mikhail and Gary are amazing. Walking out of there, I felt like a new person, and liked like one as well. So if any of you new ladies are looking for a little makeover, I highly recommend trying out Mikhail and Gary. You won?t be disappointed. more

Great Find! 12/8/2008

I called to make an appt w/Mikhail based on the reviews I read here. I have owned a salon, modeled, and been in the cosmetic industry. I have to say this was an adventure as I have always only gone to someone whose work has been proven to me first. I was a little shocked at first but it was mainly due to my coloring my hair prior and it was darker than usual. When he cut my hair I was happy to see he considered my entire frame instead of just my hair and face! Mikhail is an awesome ""visionary"" and takes a lot of things into consideration when he designs your cut! When I left there I got many compliments from people as I shopped. My husband was very pleased with the results. Don't let the salon throw you off as you walk in! Pros: Mikhail is superb for the money! Cons: Ambience and first impression of salon is not good. Could use some hospitality more

Mikhail is wonderful! 10/26/2008

I recently moved to Scottsdale from Georgia. My husband has been transferred around quite a bit and the worst part about moving is trying to find a competent hair stylist. It took me over a year to find somebody I really loved in Georgia and then we moved about 6 months later. Anyway, after we moved to Scottsdale I had my hair cut for the very first time by a woman that came very highly recommended. My hair was cut in one of those asymetrical bobs that is very popular right now. This woman had no idea how to cut my hair. She used a razor and hacked it to pieces. And then the way she styled it reminded me of an old-lady hair style. It looked horrible and for weeks I really couldn't do anything with it. I, of course, was not going back to her. I was recommended to somebody in Old Town Scottsdale, but I live in North Scottsdale and didn't feel like driving that far. So I did some searching on the internet and came across the name of Mikhail at the Beauty Bar Salon. It's always scary for me when I see a stylist for the first time, but he came across very confident and I felt quite comfortable in his capable hands. He basically told me to sit back and relax and he would fix everything for me. He did that and more so. I had my hair cut four days ago and I have received several compliments. Even my husband who usually keeps his opinions to himself when it comes to my hair, told me he really liked my haircut. Mikhail is an excellent stylist. I highly recommend. The other thing I was impressed about regarding Mikhail was the fact that Mikhail does not do color. I am in need of refreshing the highlights in my hair and Mikhail said he does not do color; he concentrates on haircuts only and that was actually very impressive to me. Just sit back and relax and you will get one of the best cuts of your life by Mikhail. more

Great haircut! 10/23/2008

I went today to Beauty Bar to have a hair cut and highlight. I promised that I'd give them a review bad or good. Well, it was very good! I have difficult hair to cut (so I've been told in the past) and I am rarely happy with my haircut when I leave the salon. To my surprise, I have finally received an excellent haircut and really pretty highlights! I plan on returning to Beauty Bar for my next haircut and many more to come!! more


I just got my haircut yesterday and felt compelled to write a hair review for the first time. I found this place online after reading lots of good reviews about Mikhail so I decided to try him out. I've read good reviews about OTHER salons before but was disappointed when I tried them, so I was at first a bit skeptical about this one as well... but was I wrong! Mikhail warmly introduced himself to me then proceeded to ask me about... get this... me! About my likes, dislikes, job, hobbies, interests, social life, etc. After I told him a bit about myself, he told me not to worry and he'll take care of me and to trust him. And I am soooo glad I did. He proceeded to snip, layer, and style, and 45 minutes later, I had an awesome haircut and my hair appears and feels so much healthier. I've already received lots of compliments on how I look younger, healthier, more energetic, how well my hair frames my face, my hair color looks prettier (although I didn't even color my hair), and lots of ""Oh my God, so cute"". Four people today asked me where I got it done so they can go make appointments. I am so happy I decided to try out the Beauty Bar... and Mikhail, promise us you'll never move back to New York!!! more

An undiscovered GEM!!!!!! 8/9/2008

I have always had my friend back home do my hair, but I get tired of scheduling my appointments around holidays or times when I go back home so I decided to look on city search. I saw that Mikhail had great reviews so I made an appointment and crossed my fingers. I am sooo glad that I did!!! I took a picture in to Mikhail and he cut my hair perfectly! I absolutely love it! And I didn't just take an inch off... i went from having mid-back length hair to having hair that barely passes my chin! Major change! But I love it so much. He was very nice and even if I didn't have a picture I think that he would have done a great job. I also had a girl do a partial highlight and it turned out great (can't remember her name!). Even though it is in a little strip mall next to a Safeway, don't be fooled!! It may not be the trendiest but I thought it was very clean and nice. I thought the price was fantastic! Only $55 for a cut and I think $70 for highlights. I am willing to pay quite a bit for hair that I love, so I thought this was a steal. HIGHLY recommended and I can't wait to go back! Pros: Amazing stylists! Cons: None! more

Elegant Hair Cuts 4/2/2008

Mikhail Knows Hair 2/24/2008

Ok, so I've never felt the need to write on here before, but I just got the great hair cut that I've been searching for since moving to Scottsdale last year. I had been going to the same person in Philadelphia for 10 yrs and haven't been able to find anyone with even half of his expertise....until now. In addition to the fab haircut.....Mikhal listens to you, has a great resume, and couldn't be nicer! Don't let the mediocre appearence of the salon fool you. Oh, and to top it off, the cost is a fraction of what I'm used to paying. Pros: Cheap and a superb haircut more

Native New Yorker finds her Stylist!! 1/13/2008

I moved here from New York and have been used to having my hair cut by a stylist and colored by a colorist. I wanted to find a salon that would accommodate me. Luckily I checked on city search and read a review that Mikhail worked in New York for Frederic Fakkai. That was where I used to have my hair cut and colored! I was so exited to find him that I scheduled an appointment and found out that his close friend Reyad was my colorist, what a small world! When I got there I was so exited to have Mikhail style my hair. Lo and behold he cut my hair exactly as I pictured it and his colorist Eric did an awesome job on my highlights. I would have paid 150, to have him cut my hair in New York, here he charges only 55$ my gorgious cut was practically for free. I am so glad I found a salon with such a great atmosphere and the results are positively superb!!! Thanks Mikhail you are a shear genius! Pros: extremley decent pricing on hair cuts Cons: nonr more

Mikhail, an Extraordinary Master Stylist!!!! 12/30/2007

for the past few years I have been flying to LA to have my hair cut by prominent stylist I am a very particular client thus; I only trust my hair to an exceptionally talented stylist. However, recently I had lunch with a friend and I was amazed at how young she looked with her new haircut. She told me that she had her hair cut by Mikhail who was the master stylist at the salon she frequents. She read about him in a magazine article and was very impressed with his background. Apparently he worked with celebrities and high end clientele at the Frederic Fakkai salon in New York for five years. And was trained in Paris at the Jacque Dessange institute. I was able to make an appointment on line, which was incredibly convenient. He even comes in on Sundays and Mondays to accommodate clients schedules, something other salons don?t do out here in the Valley. When I came in to see him he was very courteous, he consulted with me for a few minutes before my haircut. He asked me questions about my lifestyle, how I liked my hair, etc. He was very attentive and listened to all of my concerns. He cuts hair like an artist. I was awed with his technique and originality he gave me a cut that was trendy and very chic. I feel he under prices his creativity. I have finally found a perfect stylist worth staying in Scottsdale for! more

What a sham 12/29/2007

I made an appointment only 2 hours before my appointment for a pedicure and low and behold, when i get there I get a blank look on the receptionists face. An other person comes up, not identifying themselves as to who they are in this place, and she informs me that i can only have a pedicure at 3pm, and I should come back then. She doesn't even ask me if I could come back, but only tells me that I can only be seen at 3:00 pm. I didn't even get an apology for the mix up or offered a discount on the service, considering this was my first time at the salon I informed her that I'll never be back. No customer service skills at all. All the hair salon chairs were empty. This is a bad, bad sign a Saturday before new years eve. Don't trust all the reviews. I don't understand why this place got 5 stars. The interior is stuck in the 70s, 80s as well. Cons: too many , see text more
