For my first appointment I had to wait 45 minutes for my stylist. She did a good job so I stupidly made a second appointment and when I arrived 10 min. before the scheduled appointment I was told that they had me on their books for a different time and that the stylist was all booked up - this was the day before Thanksgiving. Their front desk staff are too busy chatting with each other to pay any attention to clients and have trouble keeping track of time or appointments. I will never go back. Pros: null Cons: null more

I LOOOVE VEDA 9/9/2010

I finally went to try the place out to get my hair colored and cut. My stylist Angela truly was THE BEST stylist I have ever gone to. She was very patient and gave me a great scalp and hand massage while my hair was processing! My color and cut turned out even better than what I expected. I already have my next appointment to go back and see her. I would highly reccommend Angela! more

Not worth the $$$ 5/26/2010

Last August I went in for a cut /color. I only get my hair colored three times a year so my hair doesn't fry. I asked for a entry level stylist because it is so expensive. For $110 I got color dumped on my head and my hair came out white blond. My scalp was burning and she left it on for 45 minutes while she started other customers. It was too blonde. I asked her just to touch up my roots and she dumped it all over my head. As the year went on my hair started breaking and falling out! I'm a young woman that shouldnt be losing her hair. Ive never damaged my hair ever. I know that Aveda did this. She left it on way too long. Ive lost half of my hair to prove it. Hair cut was nice. Pros: The tea. Cons: Bad Hairstylists more

Go To Tony And Guy! 3/7/2009

I have gone to veda salon for two full years. Same hairstylists and everything. My husband was coming home from Iraq after a 15 month deployment, so was my friend kelly's husband. I decided to get my hair done and so did Kelly. Kelly was just coming in for a touch up on her roots, and I was coming in to get my hair dyed. My hairstylists Kayla (southgate veda) left the toner in Kelly's hair for 45 minutes. Which that turned her hair two different colors. Her roots were ash blonde and the rest of her hair was golden blonde. They decided to use three different treatments on her hair to get it one color. while she was getting that done Kayla started working on my hair. I wanted something different this time. Kayla suggested to do underneath brown and the top blonde. When Kayla got done with my hair, I really liked it from what i could tell from their lighting. Then, kelly came over and her hair ended up being blonde, brown, orange, and tints of green. Kayla said to give it three days and if you still don't like it come back. Kelly left the salon crying. When, I got home I noticed that the roots were still brown and the blonde was really patchy. Kelly and I went back in three days later and they fixed Kelly's hair by REDYING it..which that is hurting your hair even more. Kayla put toner in my hair, which it started burning after 20 minutes..but she told me it is suppose to (WRONG ANSWER). When she got done, my hair looked better again in their lighting. Went home to look in the mirror and my roots were strawberry blonde now and the rest was tinted green and blonde. Called her again and she wanted me to come in so she could do a color rinse. I looked up the color rinse and it only last for 8 washes. I told her and the manager I wanted my 140 dollars back. . They will still not give me my money back and now my hubby is home. I recommend everyone to go to Tony and Guy. They do an awesome job. Definately worth the money!!! Your only spending a few dollars more then veda. Pros: they give you coffee, water, and massages Cons: They will talk behind your back, won't give your money back when they messed up your hair real bad, not good customer service more

Great service and cut 9/19/2008

I got a great trendy hair cut and I am extremely picky.I was a little worried about the front desk people after reading the reviews, but I did not that problem. My appointment was scheduled immediately along with an explanation that the stylists are at 3 different levels of experience/training and charge 3 different prices. I selected one with the middle range of experience. The day of my appointment the front desk lady greeted me promptly and gave me a card for a complimentary scalp massage (the massage was given during my hair being washed and was nothing impressive, I have had good massages in the past). But I went for a great hair cut and that is what I got, along with a nice style for $40. When I paid for my cut the 2 receptionists were friendly and told me they loved my hair. Looks like things have turned around with the staff there. I give them an A++++++++++ highly recommended, I will go back! Pros: friendy, great cut Cons: don't like the smell of the Veda products more

Worth the quality haircare 2/7/2008

I have been going to Veda for six years now. After getting several shabby, average haircuts at other salons I was ready to fork up a little extra money for a quality style that I would be proud to show off. The front receptionists are nothing to exclaim about, they are inconsistent and at sometimes rude, but I am not there to see them. Since I have been going to the salon I have been with two stylists and both have been fabulous. My current stylist is Lindsay who has been cutting my hair for the last four years. She always cuts it exactly the way I want it and lets me know when I might be making a decision that won't flatter my features. I feel that my service has always been amazing and I always leave at least a 20% tip. If you have a bad experience at Veda, maybe you picked the wrong stylist, ask for someone who will give you the kind of cut you want, whether it be funky, edgy, conservative or whatever. When you find a stylist who matches your needs you will really enjoy what the salon has to offer. Pros: Atmosphere, ambiance, skilled stylists Cons: Prices can run high more

Great Esthetician, Bad Reception Area (minus a few who care) 9/13/2007

I have been a client at Veda for several years. My esthetician is the best there is out there, hands down. She is friendly, skilled, timely, brings a great atmosphere, never complains, and the list of good stuff goes on and on. However, I can't say very many good things about the front desk staff, minus one specific receptionist. The front desk is down right rude. The only exception you will find is a lady named Alyssa who is just fabulous. She takes wonderful care of you, is friendly and accommodating. I actually try to go on days when she is there just so she can take care of me. more

exspensive hair done quite well 11/5/2006

I have found the front desk people to be very unfriendly to the point of they are so.... much better than the rest of us. Pros: great location Cons: unfreindly standoffish staff more

Front desk help and greeters less than helpful 10/12/2006

I have been going to this particular salon for years and have generally been happy with the service; however, over the past 6 months to a year, I have been disappointed with the service and attitude of many of their receptionists. The women at the front desk are, w/out a doubt, the most discourteous front desk staff I have encountered. Unfortunately, I believe this behavior is exhibited by the manager or owner, who, on my last visit, acted irritated and put out to have to help me. While I know the salon is a busy establishment, having to wait over 30 minutes for an eyebrow wax is really unnecessary and reflects on their poor scheduling. The only reason I stay with Veda is for my stylist, who has always been on time, does an excellent job and understands thay my time is just as valuable as that of the management. I have referred people to the salon for years and have never received complimentary services, product, etc. Given the outlandish pricing, I would think they could recognize loyal customers and reward them w/a price break or free service on their next trip to the salon. If my stylist ever leaves or transfers to the new store, I will no longer go to this location. Pros: clean and relaxing facility Cons: snobbish staff, high priced, some services do not start on time more

Fees for consultations - rip off 6/11/2006

Everytime I go, I spend about $150. I wanted a consultation for hair extensions and was told that there was a $35 fee - what a rip off. Everywhere else in town offers free consultations and Great Lengths hair. As an exisiting customer, I was very disappointed and am getting extensions done elsewhere. Pros: Nice salon and good products Cons: Caters to the pseudo elite and forgets the ordinar more

overpriced bad attitudes 4/4/2006

had bad massage listenes to therapist complain about management. Noone was friendly. more

Terrible Service 10/5/2005

Botched a perm job and when I addressed my concerns, was told that I was past the 30 day complaint period. I had to leave the country and was never given the opportunity to have the situation remedied or even an attempt to remedy. terrible servie. Will never go back. Pros: Nice Ambiance, good parking, reasonable price Cons: terrible service, attitude, unconcerned more

BIG BUCKS--NO GOOD 7/29/2005

I have been to this salon 6-8 times trying to find someone who could do a good job of a simple, blow-dry short haircut. They NEVER listen to what I say when I instruct them--they ALWAYS put a lot of expensive GOOP on my hair. When I walk out the style looks good that day and for maybe a week afterwards. Then--NOTHING!!! I have tried to contact the owner or manager and I get NO RESPONSE!!! Their haircolor prices are OUTRAGEOUS, also, and they have to have separate people do the cut and the color--VERY EXPENSIVE!!!! With hair, color, and tip, my final costs are ALWAYS $90-$120. NOT WORTH IT AT ALL!!!!! THEY ARE JUST RIDING ON THE VEDA NAME!!! Pros: tea is good, pretty decor Cons: no talent, HIGH PRICES more

COO 2/4/2005

I felt very welcomed. The staff went out of their way to make sure that I had a perfect experience. The salon is beautiful and very clean. I was given complimentary services. Pros: attentive, experienced more
