I like the location of Salon 135 because it is so close to the UNC Chapel Hill campus. This is the reason I repeatedly went to get my hair highlighted and cut there. I finally had...

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/3/2015

Two weeks ago I had a hair cut by a stylist who said he had graduated from Vidal Sasoon. He must have failed the course as it has proven to be the worse hair cut I have had in 20 years and at a cost of $38.00++. I am so disappointed and I hate my hair so be careful when you choose this salon. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/1/2013

I had a great experience at Salon 135. Jonathan was my stylist and he was awesome!!! My hair has not looked this good in a very long time. Thank you so much. I will definitely be back for a cut and color soon......\r \r \r Great Job! more

Praiseworthy 7/2/2011

After bouncing around from different barbers and salons in the area, I finally tried Salon 135. I walked in on a weekday morning and the receptionist promptly paired me with Lindsay. She did what the others failed to do. She listened to what I had to say and made sure I received exactly what I wanted. What a concept! Overall I would say she is skilled, courteous, clean and easy on the eyes. I have no complaints about my experience there and they have earned my repeat business. more

Just Awful 8/19/2010

Had a horrible experience at this salon. Staff acted like they could careless about my cut and left we waiting for 20 min. even though I had an appointment. I overheard them making fun of a patron right after they left the salon. Bad people, bad place to get your hair done. more

PERFECTION 3/25/2010

I have been going to Salon 135 for the past 2 years for both eyebrow & upper lip waxing and haircuts. Every time I go the person the people who handle my stuff are extremely attentive and do such a perfect and thorough job. The staff are really friendly and I have a fun time there. Christy is an amazing hair cutter and she gave me a super trendy hair cut. Steven has always been friendly every time I walk in. I would recommend this salon as their work on me has been perfection each time. Pros: Best hair cuts and waxing Cons: nothing more

Best and only salon for me 11/11/2009

I've been getting my hair cut by Alan at Salon 135 for many years--since they were on the opposite side of Franklin St. Alan has always cut to flatter my thin curly hair, and when it turned gray and straight, he cut a new style that I continue to receive compliments on even months later. I've recommended Salon 135 to many friends who are also pleased with the results. Pros: experienced stylists, clean and bright, friendly atmosphere Cons: none more

Get your hair done here! 10/12/2009

I've been coming to Salon 135 for years and wouldn't go anywhere else. The salon is extremely clean and the staff is helpful & friendly. I've always gotten a great haircut and highlights, and the stylists are always willing to listen when I explain what I want. I highly recommend them! Pros: professional, friendly staff; accept walk-ins more

great hair cuts, fun staff 10/12/2009

i recently donated my hair to locks of love and trusted alan to cut 10+ inches of my hair and style it to fit my face and hair type. everyone loved the new cut which made it much easier (and a great deal of fun) to make such a drastic change. even when i go several weeks longer between cuts i still get compliments. Pros: great cuts, quick and friendly service more

Five stars!!! 10/9/2009

What a fabulous group over there at Salon 135! It's simple, you get a great looking cut and you are treated like a valuable customer every single time. I'll be taking my 13 month old son to Salon 135 for his very first hair cut!! Pros: Professional and friendly service more

Come Only if you want to be Fabulous 10/9/2009

I've been coming to Salon 135 for many years now and the place has only gotten better. Their location is bright and sunny and super clean. The people are wonderful: highly skilled and fun to be around. I get 2-color highlights and many layered cuts and I always feel like a million bucks when I leave. Pros: Color, cut, ambience Cons: none! more

My Fave Salon 10/9/2009

Alan Corpus has been my stylist for years now, and continues to deliver a meticulously-executed, flattering cut each and every time. I regularly receive compliments from strangers about my hair. I have recommended Salon 135 to several acquaintances, who have all been happy with their experiences. Pros: Talented stylists; relaxed and accommodating atmosphere more

great people, fun location 10/8/2009

located on Franklin Street, Salon 135 is a Chapel Hill institution. I've been going for years and have always gotten a good cut or color. Sylists really care about what YOU want, how much time you want to spend doing your hair and your type of hair. Pros: good with color and cuts Cons: more expensive than some places, but worth it more

Best stylists ARE still there 10/8/2009

I drive from another city just to have my hair done here. I've had cuts in NYC and Chicago that were not as good as Alan's. Pros: best haircuts and color Cons: parking if it is a unc game more

Great Service and Oustanding Knowledge 9/5/2009

I arrived to this Salon without an appointment and they did all that they could to squeeze me in with the next stylists available. Did I forget to mention that they wanted to know my preference in stylist (male or female) but it did not matter to me. Alan was able to sqeeze me into his schedule. After looking at the texture of my hair and shape of my face, he automatically recommended a hair style that I would have never thought the end of the day, I left that Salon very pleased with my new "do" and since then I have kept that all I get is compliments on how great that cut makes me look....thanks Alan! Pros: Ambience and Knowledge Cons: Parking more

Awesome!!! 7/1/2009

I am shocked as well at the negative reviews! I don't think we can be talking about the same place! I have been going to Johnnathan for years now and I am always so impressed by the way he can tell me what is going to look best on my facial structure and he always makes me happy. He's so creative and my hair always looks great. I didn't even know I had curly hair before I started going to him! It used to be this unmanageble frizz that I had to dry straight everyday but he taught me how to style my hair and now it's curly and it takes me literally 5 minutes to do! Pros: Johnnathan is the man! Cons: Nunya more

never a bad cut / color 6/12/2009

honestly, i am shocked reading these other reviews and wonder if they went to salon 135. i've had an appt there every 6 weeks for 10 years without ever encountering this type of atmosphere. Pros: professional, comfortable, reliable more

Sick hairdresser, and very upsetting disclosure of another client's secrets 12/30/2008

I am an extremely tolerant person; it takes a lot to rustle my feathers at businesses. I have never had a worse salon experience in my life. It was my first visit before going to Chicago for a wedding, and I wanted a simple trim. After sitting down to have my hair washed, I realized that my hairdresser was ill and started coughing and sneezing. She told a co-worker that she couldn't go to the doctor b/c her insurance hadn't started, but she never should have been cutting hair that day. Three days later, I woke up in Chicago with a terrible upper respiratory infection and had a miserable day of travel back to Raleigh and missed work on Monday. The cut was mediocre at best. Pros: Inexpensive Cons: Disrespectful and thoughtless staff, cramped space more

like a factory 11/17/2008

The staff is horrible. They spend more time flirting with each other than they do cutting hair. I think the owner really pushes the stylist to see as many people as they can in an hour. You really feel rushed. not very clean. Pros: a really quick haircut. Cons: rude unprofessional staff more

Don't ever go here! 7/8/2008

I have been getting my hair cut and styled for years, and have never had such a bad experience as this. I went in with beautiful long hair and told the stylist I wanted a trim. On top of that, I brought in a picture of myself with the desired lenth which I told him I only wanted it maximum 2 inches shorter. Well, after he assured me in a horrible french accent that he'd only trim a little, he washed my hair and then spun me so I couldn't see the mirror. When he turned me around, I was HORRIFIED! He'd cut off about 7 inches and the cut looked absolutely aweful! He kept fluffing it saying it just needed to be styled, and I told him I couldn't go out in public like that...It really was the worst possible cut ever, added like 10 years to my face. Seeing how unhappy I was, he washed and cut my hair again. When he turned me around, I started crying because he had made it look even worse. I have never seen anyone butcher someone's hair like that. When the manager saw me crying and telling the guy I didn't want him to touch my hair again, he came over and fixed it in 5 mins. Even though it was now just below my ears, it looked decent. Pros: If you want to look horrible, this is your place! Cons: EVERYTHING!!! They'll chop your hair off more

Great experience all around 5/24/2008

Salon 135 was great! I called literally 15 minutes before and snagged the last open appointment they had for the day. They were great about fitting me in even though I was a first time customer. I had recently gotten a hair cut, but it hadn't been what I wanted and I was really disappointed in it, and after a couple weeks of thinking about it decided to get it re-done here. Jonathan was my stylist and he was GREAT. He took what I wanted and my requirements and turned them into a great cut. I really know nothing about hair and am always awful at telling my stylist what I want, and he did a great job deciphering. I have really thick hair and he thinned it out allowing my curls to finally come back. Thick frizzy blah hair into light curly and great! I will definitely go back again and the price isnt bad either- $38 dollars flat rate for the cut Pros: skill, level of care, fun location more
