I just checked out Jaye M, and I see she had nothing nice to say about either of the high end salons she visited in NJ. I dont know why, maybe since she lives in North Carolina they do things differently there. I have been a long time client of Allendale Hair Studios (7 years) , I go in every 4 weeks for cut and color, and the atmosphere is very upbeat and friendly! I love the warm greeting I get and not only the smiles from all the staff, but a good laugh and a glass of wine, all to be topped off with my hair looking awesome! I work in NYC and could easily spend 3 times the price if I went to a salon near my job, I have done this quite a few times before I found AHS. BELIEVE ME, I've been doing this for 20 years now!
