A friend of mine had recommended me to this Salon and to Carlos as a stylist... after me admiring her hair :) Carlos was prompt to recommend some changes to my request and I went...


Very unprofessional! I went to my appointment last Saturday, and when I arrived they told me that they couldn't take me. The person there was pretty rude and told me she doesn't...

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/27/2013

I wish I had read he previous reviews prior to buying an express deal directly from Beleza's website, as I would have certianly saved my money and spent it else where. Much like previous reviewers I had a similar experience. You can find more reviews on yelp for their previous location that are the same.\r \r While it is possible to get an appointment, they make it quite difficult. When I purchased the deal I purchased it for myself as well as, a friend for a girls afternoon out. They are unable to accomodate more then one person at a time. Which becomes a challenge, but can be accomodated if you have the time. The first attempt to make an appointment, I was rudely told to do so through their website. I explained I was trying to set a time for two people at once. This seemed to have burdened the person who answered the phone but none the less made the appointments. Several days before our appointment (which was made several weeks in advance)my friend received a phone call that our appointments were canceled as the salon would be closed to attend training. My sister is a stylist has been in the beauty profession for 10 years and there is plenty of advanced notice to attend trade shows and trainings, this information would have been known well in advance of the booked appointment. However that is not all, they had originally booked the appointment the wrong day and called my friend harrassing her for not showing for her appointment which was made in error on their part demanding money because she didn't cancel. That is strike two. In order to finally get an appointment that worked for them we ended up having to take time off work. As it seems they aren't really open the posted hours. \r \r Now to the appointment it self. Same attitude you get when you call is also the same welcoming reception when you walk in the door, less then enthusiastic. I paid $29 for a mani/pedi and brow shaping. You get what you pay for folks and I would say that I am less then happy with the outcome. For $35 I can visit the shop near home (without all the hassle and I will going forward). My advice would be to do it at home yourself as I could do just as good of a job on my own. My nails were not filed evenly nor were my toe nails and I have had to go back and retrim and file them. The polish bubbled (not allowing enough dry time between coats) they don't soak your fingers. The water in the my foot tub was so hot that I literally looked like a lobster for several hours. My friend and I walked out saying thank god we used the deal and we won't be back.\r \r I thought the point of having specials is to drive traffic, gain clients to improve over all business. This apparently not so for this shop they are just unprofessional rude and really do a poor job. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/28/2012

I bought 2 Groupons for pedicures in April (1 for me and 1 as a gift) and called several times to schedule an appointment for a pedicure but they never had any availability because they only have 2 technicians. I tried calling in August to schedule an appt in Oct but was told they don't set appts more than 30 days in advance and was advised to call exactly 30 days before the date I desired. I set an alarm on my calendar and when I called in I was told they were already booked with 'regulars'! If they were 'regulars' then seems they would have known this in advance. The receptionist was rude and when I said I would contact Groupon about a refund she said, ""Ok"" and hung up on me. \r \r Also, my friend was never able to get an appointment either so I requested both vouchers be refunded. I think the receptionist was unprofessional and it's not good business to sell vouchers if you don't have adequate staff to accomodate. I will take my business elsewhere! more

Very unprofessional! I went to my 5/22/2012

Very unprofessional! I went to my appointment last Saturday, and when I arrived they told me that they couldn't take me. The person there was pretty rude and told me she doesn't do highlights on Saturday (even though they scheduled my appointment for Saturday). They called my home at 11am to change the 11:30 appt, but I had already left. It took ~30min to reach my destination, and to get there and for them to handle the problem on their end in an unprofessional manner is uncalled for. more

Get rid of the head phones 3/23/2012

Visited on a Thursday morning thinking that I should be out in about 2 hours. Took 4 1/2 hours. Asked for a bob cut, said I did not part my hair and wore a ponytail. Got a chopped up shag, with a part, and a response of ""I don't know why you were holding on to it anyway"". Decided not to panic and see what the reactions would be from others. By the way people stared at my hair, I knew the cut was less than flattering (bad). Main problem was the stylist spent too much time on the phone ""taking care of business"" when she should have been concentrating on the customer's concerns. I'm assuming she must have enough customers already so one bad cut wouldn't hurt her business. Disappointed because it had good reviews on other sites. While the shop was clean and beautiful and the staff were smiling and polite, I would not recommend it nor will I return again. more

Best Layers Cut Ever!!! I looked awesome - felt so great!!! 11/10/2011

A friend of mine had recommended me to this Salon and to Carlos as a stylist... after me admiring her hair :) Carlos was prompt to recommend some changes to my request and I went with his suggestions... it turned AWESOME... I loved it. My husband was with me at the time also and he loved my cut/styled hair so much - that he decided to get his haircut by Carlos as well... We will be back for sure. He is awesome. Convenient location, ample parking, great prices... great talent. Thanks Carlos. more

Thank You Carlos!!! It was the best hairstyle/cut EVER!!! 9/28/2011

And it is not just me saying so... also my fiance agrees :) I am so glad that she had the idea of bringing me to a real salon and stylist, and no longer my one-size-fits-all type of haircut that I would get at Super Clips... I must admit that I was uneasy at first (being a man) and coming to a salon, but I had the best experience ever... I am so glad I came here to get my haircut... Carlos was my stylist. He had just came from NYC as he shared from some continuing education classes and he must have put in practice some of that new learning on me... every one in the salon wowed my haircut... Carlos even shaved my neck with a razor... like old time barbers... It felt sooo good to have that area shaved. Rest assured that I will be back !!! Thanks again Beleza Team, thanks again Carlos. more

Carlos is always so professional and caring, he takes the time to hear all your concerns and questions, makes sugestions about your hairstyle based on your lifestyle and habits! so few professionals in this field do that!!!\r I am always looking forward to my next appoitment with Carlos, because he will make sure I am happy witht the results of whatever he does to my hair.

Terrible customer service 8/15/2011

I went to Beleza salon this past weekend for a highlight/low light. I have had my hair highlight this way for sometime. When I explained what I wanted my hairstylist went to discuss what I wanted with his manager. She came over and told me that I had not had my hair done like this. I was shocked ( at this point I should have left) Manager was very confrontational. Another girl came over and smoothed things over. They said it would be no problem. A highlight which usually takes 1 1/2 hours ended up taking 3 1/2 hours and when all was said and done they had done my hair completed different than what I wanted and how they wanted to do it. I will never go to this salon again and I hope to get the word out so that others don't experience this horrible customer service more

Fabulous Color and Cut 8/14/2011

Thank you Stephanie for a nice haircut and color. I have been to Salon Blu in Raleigh and my last haircut was horrible and came to Beleza and Stephanie did a great job. She listened to me and did exactly what I asked. I showed her a picture and she worked her magic. Thanks for my edgy bob haircut. I will highly recommend this salon. You have to be clear with what you want, I always show a picture, and make sure the stylist can deliver. I manage a fortune 500 company and I know how it is to have everyone consistent. I understand you can't control people. I had a great experience lady and see you in 6 weeks. more

Great cut/color 7/18/2011

I went this weekend to get my hair cut and colored (with the wonderful groupon) and overall had a really great experience. I had made an appointment for saturday but the stylist who was supposed to be doing my hair was sick so they called me back and were able to still work me in for the same day. This is the first time I've ever had my hair colored and I absolutely love it. Trixie did a fabulous job, I have gotten so many compliments! The reason for only 4 stars instead of 5 is simply because I did notice that some of the staff were not very professional. I'm not sure if this is a regular occurence or if its just because of the stylist and receptionist being sick and I imagine a large amount of people with the same groupon trying to get appointments. Overall I had a really great experience and I really love my new hair cut/color! more

Love my Stylist Trixie and Sherrie 6/26/2011

These ladies gave me the best Graduated Bob and Dimensional Color that I have had in a long time. I went across the streets to Salon168 with a coupon. THEY FRIED MY HAIR AND RUINED MY COLOR. So I decided to try Beleza Couture Studio and they restored my hair back to life. Thank you ladies for saving my hair. Anyone new to the DURHAM AREA and LOOKING for a new salon try these ladies. more

Diverse and Professional Salon 6/26/2011

I had received a service from the salon about a year ago.l needed a haircut a week ago and decided to give them another try. I received a great service the last time I was in the salon. Since this visit I must say I'm impressed with the salon and the team. I love the diversity and the staff are very friendly, they work together, and the atmosphere is so nice. So anyone looking for a haircut men and women or a color, this salon is the place to go. more

Talented and Professional Team 5/24/2011

Loved my Brazilian Keratin, Highlights, and Cut..... Beleza Staff you guys worked wonders on my hair. I say staff because the whole team worked on my hair and it looks fabulous. I never seen a group of stylist work together and was so professional . Anyone looking for a great place to go in the South Point Area give this salon a try. I have received so many compliments on my hair and the color was great no brassy hair. more

Awesome Haircut 5/24/2011

Arrived a couple of days for a conference at Duke. I was in need of a haircut and the staff at Duke said to go to Beleza near the mall. So I went to the mall and found Beleza. Trixie gave me the best men hair cut. I t's going to be hard going back to my stylist in Minnesota. You guys are awesome. Very professional, clean, and she educated me on my products. I will defintely be back when I'm in the area. more

The greatest salon in Durham 5/23/2011

Beleza Couture is the best salon in Durham, I tried three other salons since I moved here. I moved from Miami, so I was used to upscale salons, and Beleza is worth the money. Stephanie and Tasaan has done my hair and they were amazing, I have never been so amazed. They do turn ordinary into extraordinary. They gave me a realy nice edgy bob. more

Great Experience 5/23/2011

I Visited Beleza Couture Studio today because I was in the shopping center and needed a haircut, and had heard some good things about the salon. I walked in and was able to get an appointment with Carlos. Carlos was very nice, professional, and listened to everything I said. What I liked most was that the manager made sure that I was happy and the cut was really nice. The salon was really clean and the staff worked as a team. The haircut was $40.00 which I thought was reasonable since I was expected to pay more. Carlos gave me a wonderful and relaxing scalp massage. I would definitely return and highly recommend Carlos or Trixie. From what Carlos stated Trixie is one of the master stylist, so expect to pay a little more with her. more

Love My Brazilian Keratin Treatment. 3/22/2011

I have been looking for a salon that does Brazilian Keratin Treatments. I seen alot of advertisements on the internet and decided to give this salon a try. I went in for a consultation first and was very impressed with the stylist and how educated she was on my hair texture. So if you're looking for a salon in Durham that does Brazilian Keratin Treatment give Trixie a try. The stylist is certified in The Brazilian Blowout and Brazilian Keratin Treatment and the certificate was posted. Very good results and the atosphere was very welcoming and the salon is very clean. The Brazilian is better than the one i had in Brazil. My other stylist informed me to make sure the person was certified to ensure the treatment would last and was applied correctly. more

Love my Haircut and Extensions 3/21/2011

Looking for a salon online and this salon came up , I called and decided to give them a try. They offer 25% off for first time clients so I figure what do I have to lose. When I walked in I was greeted by the receptionist and the other staff members where very accomodating. The salon was very busy and was very comfortable when I notice that they do all textures of hair. I have biracial kids and atmosphere is very important to me. I decided to get my daughter's hair as well because it's hard for me to straighten it. I consulted with Trixie and she did my haircut and Tiffany applied my extensions because Trixie didn't have time. I was very pleased with the whole experience and will continue to have my hair done. I will say that any body with textured hair and looking for a good blowout this is defintely the salon. And as advertised online the Best Extensions. Thank you guys.... more
