Editorial review from Citysearch 1/20/2014

Went here to get my hair dyed blonde and was charged over $350! The website lists coloring as $80 and highlights at $95, so I have no idea how my hair could have cost that much money. I was in the salon for five hours and realized its because the colorist screwed up my color an gave me a toner and shine treatment that cost me an extra $100! My hair is not even blonde it's orange! Diane seemed really sweet and knowledgable but now I feel completely taken advantage of since it was my first time dying my hair. For this price, I should not have to go to anther colorist to fix my hair. So disappointed. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/1/2012

Great salon -- some of these reviewers need their heads examined (no pun intended)! The salon is small and intimate...everyone is friendly. As far as talent goes -- having paid as little as $15 for a haircut to $300 for a haircut -- you get what you pay for. Michael is a brilliant stylist - best haircut I've had since my days of going to Vidal Sassoon in Chicago. If you want something different -- that will grow out beautifully - try Halo. more

Halo is by far the best salon in 4/21/2012

Halo is by far the best salon in Milwaukee... Second to none. Diane and her team spend an amazing amount of time learning new techniques and exploring trends. Halo has done Hair extensions prior to it being trendy, Eye lash extensions prior to them being the flavor of the moment. The personnel is amazingly friendly yet very professional in their approach. The atmosphere there is relaxed, service is unmatched. Highly recommended. more

Very Rude and indifferent! Tuesday 3/28/2012

Very Rude and indifferent! Tuesday March 27, 2012 about 12:50 in the afternoon I came up to the glass door and I could see a young woman at the front desk smiling and looking at her computer while talking with a man with bad highlights like they used to have in the '80s on the other side with his back to me. I turned the door handle but it was locked, then I rang their door bell, but she kept smiling and moving her mouth. Only until another women with either pimples or moles all over her face got out of a car, walked past me and asked, ""If I needed anything?"" I said, ""I want to get a hair cut."" and as the women on the inside buzzed her in she said walking past me, ""Oh, were closed."" and left me outside. I waited for about 30 seconds and realized she was not interested in helping me at least with salon hours, a business card or an appointment. The hours of the salon were not noticeable on the windows. I already felt down because of my hair and now I was minimized, so I didn't want to stand outside their salon and search for hours of operation when they could of easily tell me. I don't know why in this economy they would treat potential customers this way! I was willing to pay their inflated $45 price for a stylish men's haircut but at this point, I will not give them a cent! more

OMG try this treatment! 5/23/2011

I received the Coppala Keratin Complex treatment with Michael Potter last week and I could not be more thrilled with the results!!! I have incredibly thick and extremely coarse hair which has been difficult to manage all my life. To blow dry and flat iron it was a daunting and time-consuming task which a dreaded with a passion. Michael is one of the only people who knows how to deal with cutting my thick hair and when he recommended this treatment for my hair I was very reluctant. However, this treatment has completely changed the look and texture of my hair for the better! I am wondering why I didn't try this sooner! My hair is now soft and managable and actually moves in the wind. Try this Keratin treatment and you'll be glad you did's worth every single penny! :-) more

best colorist around 4/26/2011

I have been coming to Halo for years. I have lived in different states most of the time. Diane has always been the best colorist around. She has fixed every hair color mishap other salons have created. She truly is genius recently a super expensive salon some how managed to dye my beautiful auburn brown hair the craziest color of purple I have ever seen....No JOKE! Diane once again managed to get me back to the auburn color I was before without damaging my hair. GENIUS! more

I feel like a movie star!!!! 4/14/2010

So, I moved to Milwaukee two years ago and have been looking for a good hairstylist, experimenting and making do with people from my hometown. Everything about this was perfect. The place is perfect. The staff is really friendly. The music was perfect. The decor was perfect. Paige, my stylist, listened to me and what I wanted. She was really thorough with my cut, making sure every millimeter was in place! It turned out fantastic! It's not a huge departure for me, but *really* well-executed. I've been walking around with blah heavy ugly shapeless hair for months, and I walked out with perfectly balanced fluffy beautiful curls that frame my face and make me want to go on about ten dates =) Pros: staff listens, nice atmosphere, skillz more

Paige is the best! 9/11/2009

I tried several well rated salons when I moved to Milwaukee. I am so happy I found Halo! Paige is a great colorist and stylist. She recently won an award for best stylist in the region. I am very picky about my hair and I always leave happy with the color and the cut. The also have the best lesser known brands of shampoos and styling aids. I always enjoy my time in the salon, as well. Pros: Current knowledge, friendly staff Cons: Parking, a bit pricey more

NEVER AGAIN! 2/24/2009

I saw Diane and left crying! She was very knowledgeable about color, but gave me the worst haircut of my life. I was very specific in my wish to blend the layers of my hair, without taking off too much length. Within the first 3 minutes, she had 3 inches off the shortest layer. I went back to my ?regular? stylist and she was appalled by the cut. All she could say was ?You just need to be patient and let your hair grow back?. more

The Angels at Halo 1/19/2009

I'll admit it. I am a self professed hair snob. I attribute my neurosis (wink wink) to the many bad cuts and colors I've endured throughout my 30 some years of life moving from city to city. When I moved to Milwaukee, I tried out three salons and still wasn't happy until a friend recommended Halo. Since my first cut/color there about a year ago, my hair has never looked better. Then I made a HUGE mistake and tried out a different salon with lower prices. BAD MOVE. My once long, thick and silky hair was now over-razored, frizzy, had no shape and had spotty color. NOT HAPPY. Although the woman who did this to my hair was willing to fix it, my trust was lost. Needless to say, I went back to Halo where Diane fixed the color, the cut and the frizziness. I was so happy I was literally dancing out of the salon blowing kisses her way. So, if you're a little crazy-obsessed about your hair too, Halo is where it's at!! more

Best service, and Cutting Edge ideas in Milwaukee 9/30/2008

I just moved here from Chicago and NEVER have I had an experience at a salon like this before. I used to spend tons of money for mediocore service, cutting edge ideas, but not cattering to exactly what I wanted, and new products that seemed that I just had to have for the ""right"" look. I recently visited HALO and was throroughly impressed! I was offered a unique loose leaf tea which I was glad that I didn't get before my services. I called in to make an appointment very last minute because I had a job interview and they squeezed me in with out any hesitation. Paige, my colorist, listened to exactly what I had wanted and even kindly suggested some highlights. I have had many haircuts but never like the one that I had received from Diane. It is amazing! She is so knowlegeable and has very avant garde ideas. The cut defined my personality to the ""T."" I have found my salon in Milwaukee and will continue to be a loyal customer and will reccommend it to any one who asks! Thanks HALO!!!! Pros: service, helpful consultations, great products, flexible times, inviting atmosphere more

GREAT service! 2/11/2008

My first experience with Halo was approximately a year ago when I was interested in getting extensions. I had my initial consultation with Nova and he was incredibly thorough in his explanation of the process and the different options that I had available to me (I was a first timer to extensions). Once I selected what type I wanted, I came back for the application and it was a great experience. It turned out PERFECTLY, the hair was an exact match and no one could tell the hair was fake. PLUS, the event in which I was getting the extensions for was occuring the day after I got them applied, which the salon was normally closed that day. Knowing what I was getting the extensions for, Nova offered to come into the salon especially for me just so that I could have my hair styled professionally for the big event, at no additional charge! Now, my regular hair stylist who I have been going to for years in Kenosha has never even offered such a thing. THAT'S what I call true customer service and going the extra mile! The style turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I received compliments on my hair all day long because of how good it looked. Pros: UNBELIEVABLY helpful staff, AMAZING talent, friendly Cons: Parking, price is a little high even for how skilled they are more

halo salon review 10/25/2007

i just had my haircut and colored at halo salon!!!!!!!! what a blast!!!!great music , great atmosphere,and top notch service!!!!!every one is so attentive and i had their undivided attention! First let me start with the colour.paige ,who is so sweet and talented took my hair from a very mousy brown to a rich golden brown with caramel hilights after which came a complimentary""micromist"" deep conditioning treatment.Then came my haircut!!!! Michael Potter who has 15 years of experience and trained and worked at the vidal sassoon salon in beverly hills took my over layered typical wisconsin haircut and gave me a soft geometric haircut that i feel is the best haircut ive had in my life!!!!he is so particular and precise, its as if he cut each hair individually.this place is the bomb!check it out!!!! Pros: skill vision talent more

great haircut bad attitude 8/30/2007

I went to Diane about 6 times. The first 5 times, it was a positive experience. She is an experienced stylist. As I continued to go to her, her prices seemed to increase depending on the day. When I made a drastic change to go from dark hair to blond I consulted with her and she reassured me that after the initial whopper of $250, which included a haircut it would cost less to maintain. I returned for a touch up asking to have it lightened more. She doubled me up with another client and ran between us. I didn't receive the attention I should have. When complete I went home and saw I still had brown roots a quarter inch wide, uneven highlights showing through my natural color. I made another appt for her to ""fix"" the issue, she didn't call me back but instead her boyfriend did who didn't even do my hair. I got there for my ""fix"" appt and waited 45 min for her to talk to me she was defensive and told me that I had to pay around another $65 to get the roots touched up when that was why i went there in the first place! Now I had to pay a total of $235 for just color when before she charged me $250 for all that and a cut! I was prepared to spend much more if she had only been polite and fixed the miscommunication we had had. I ended up canceling the appointment for her to retouch my roots and went somewhere else, where they treated me right and charged me less than half the price. Diane needs to realize that although she is a talented stylist, one - she isn't worth what she is charging, this is Milwaukee not Hollywood, two - rates can't jump up and down depending on who walks in the door it's dishonest, and three - she needs to step down a peg and realize that people make mistakes and a great stylist will admit them and make the client happy without charging them more money because of an over sized ego. I would not recommend her or Halo at all for that matter because once you have an issue with one person there, especially Diane, you get snobbed by all of them. Pros: great cut, ambience Cons: bad colorist, not familiar with haircare after highlights, unprofessional, egotistical more

Best colorist around 1/24/2007

I have been going to Diane for probably about 10 years, and im only 18. Everytime she cuts my hair i absolutely love it. She's amazing i would recommend her to anybody. If you think she's rude or anybody in the salon is rude you are nuts! They are some of the nicest people ive met! =] Pros: Amazing coloring, area Cons: NONE! more

Don't waste your money or dignity 9/13/2006

This place is exorbitantly priced and the quality of service is not any greater than Cost Cutters. I, too, cried when I left. Pros: I cannot think of one. Cons: Price, skills, lack of friendliness more

I just had my hair style changed, color and new style......Very, very best in style and color, excellent atmosphere and reception..........Best thing I've spent my money on in a long while........ Pros: Excellent Business, Welcoming more

Excellent Service 9/14/2005

I had a great experience at this salon. Diane kept the salon open until almost 11pm to make sure that I was happy with my color. I had called in 2 hours earlier and requested an appointment that evening and she was willing to do it. Awesome salon, great ownership, I would highly recommend to anyone. I haven't had a better experience in Milwaukee or Chicago. Pros: welcoming staff, talented, fun atmosphere Cons: parking more
