Editorial review from Citysearch 10/6/2013

I love going to high end salons. Lately, I have been watching what I spend. Before I gave up and went into costcutters I found out about Nicole and the blossom program. Just call and ask BLO about it. I spent 10 bucks for a haircut. I received a High End looking cut from a High End salon. I love my hair and I love the savings. I am so glad that BLO has a program like this. BLO is a very elite salon. It is busy because it is popular but the atmosphere is relaxing.\r I have also been to BLO for a color correction. I screwed my hair up with bleach. You can trust BLO to make your mistake into one of their miracles. My hair turned out beautiful. \r Do give BLO a try. Trust me I have been to salons that have cut my hair wrong or bleached it so harshly it started to fall out. I am very cautious where I go now. I trust BLO. They are passionate about hair. You will leave feeling pampered and pretty. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/10/2013

I have been going to Blo for many many years, back when it was Studio 929. I've always had wonderful experiences and have gone from long to short to long hair many times. Its always been a fun place to relax and enjoy being pampered. I even now take my 3 year old daughter because she has very difficult curly hair and they treat her like a princess. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/24/2013

I was recommended to use Natasha from one of my girlfriends. When I met with her, I knew I was asking for something complicated (color) and I wanted to ensure functionality as it grew out. I explained everything to her, and dang if she didn't repeat back, almost verbatim what I said in my 5 minute schpeel, followed up with ""so this is my plan to get there..."". Wow, someone who listened!! LOVE LOVE my hair and I have a feeling Natasha is stuck with me for life. She's super professional and is there for the right reasons. She is a true artist with vision.\r \r I only wish blo would get new chairs. They hurt my back every time. :( (this excludes the massaging shampoo chairs!) The end result of the hair is worth the pain, but it would be nice if they were comfortable. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/22/2013

I have been going to BLO for over 5 years. Linzy is the best. She is an awesome mentor and on my last visit it was great to see her mentoring a young African America female. I really relax after a crazy day at the office where Linzy and I can talk about anything or I can have a quiet visit. All of the staff is very pleasant and great ""teamwork""...it is easy to complain but please look in the mirror before you hit send...""Live and Let Live"" more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/9/2012

I am not in the habit of posting reviews, but I felt it necessary in this instance. I have to agree with one of the most recent reviews on here, which picked up on the owner Bryan's inability to accept constructive criticism. I was one of his customers who had seen two different stylists (because my hair is long, and I don't get it cut often). My first cut was a pleasant experience. During my series of visits with the second stylist, I was prepping for a special event and trying to get my color just right (I had not previously used color services here). The color experience was a fiasco from start to finish. I never was able to achieve the desired shade, despite several attempts. Also, when my stylist supposedly did a few highlights during the last ""multidimensional"" service, I could see that the result was very uneven once I was able to style my hair on my own. I agree with other comments that the pricing is very arbitrary, as services were added during my visit (at the shampoo bowl during the color session) that inflated my final price at checkout, which were not requested by me originally. I communicated with the owner on two occasions, speaking with him by phone and by email. I was left with the impression that the stylists know best, and that the customer should spend as much on their hair as the stylist thinks (in their opinion) they should (because after all, they are the experts). The lack of clarity and quality were my two main issues. This may be the ""cool"" place to go in Raleigh, and some people voted for it as the best, but the vibe is not right for me. It was not real enough for me to build a relationship with them, and they will no longer receive my business. I have already found another salon and stylist with much better communication and clearer pricing that works for me... more

Technically: Fine. Behaviorally: Not so much. 3/11/2012

I have been going to Blo since the salon opened. The staff is very pleasant and professional. The product/service is stellar. Typically, I wouldn't have anything to complain about. Unfortunately, I have seen some fairly unsavory commentary by the owner and while I have never utilized services, his behavior has driven me to a different salon. Bryan is the captain of his ship but the berating behavior, the outing of customers who wish to post feedback anonymously and his inability to accept constructive criticism leaves a sour taste in my mouth. This is unfortunate but I cannot patronize a business that engages in infantile behavior. One never knows when constructive criticism will be misconstrued and she will fall victim to an outburst of someone who lacks professionalism. It is simply not worth the aggravation. more

LAURA ROCKS!! 2/4/2012

If you're looking for a mult-dimensional color with PAZAZZ Laura is your girl! I have long hair and VERY particular about the health of my hair while having color that STAND OUT in a crowd. I can imagine this is a tough request for a hair designer, right? Laura carefully asked my opinion and perception while selecting shades of blonde, brunette, and browns to create a palate of art on my head! Laura recognized the importance of healthy hair and keeping my length by adding a protectant to the ends before the cut. AMAZING! Amazing, I say! Thank you, Laura, for taking the time with me & BLOwing me away with a FABULOUS color & cut. You made me beautiful once again... what a great welcome to Raleigh by blo. I'm a lifer for Laura! more

Ask for Linzy! 1/30/2012

Linzy is a hair genius! Her knowledge of hair types and the products and cuts that work best for those hair types is phenomenal. In one visit she managed to provide solutions to the hair woes that have been troubling me for years. I'm proud of my hair again! Overall service at the salon is always fantastic. Book your appointment now! more

Excellent Extentions!!!! 1/19/2012

I just got my first set of extentions with Natasha and they have completely changed my life! They are so beautiful! Natasha blended the hair with my natural hair color perfectly! People have no idea that I have extentions in! She took the time to explain in detail how to properly care for them and style them. I love doing my hair every day now! I would recommend Natasha to anyone looking to get extentions. The Salon is clean, very friendly and has great customer service! more

blo BLEW ME AWAY! 11/1/2011

First impression - awesome! Trendy salon that smells amazing when you walk in the door! You are greeted by this amazing scent in the air and friendly staff is very welcoming!\r Stylist (Jennifer) impression - knows what she is doing! Jennifer was very friendly and made me feel as if I had known her forever. She asked a lot of questions to make sure we were on the same page. She gave me an incredible color and highlight!\r Departure impression - look forward to my next visit! The entire staff was so helpful and they really make you feel like you are very important and that they genuinely want you to come back.\r \r I recommend this great salon to anyone....give it a try, you just might get blown away too! more

Lindzy with a ""Z"" is Phenomenal! 10/30/2011

Well, my 14 year is first and she says Lindzy is fun to be with and helped her when she cut her very long hair short. That was 3 years ago and not only have I come over to the ""Z"" but I have turned 5 others on to Lindzy and they all love her. She is so easy to talk to but more importantly she KNOWS hair. I often go in not able to articulate what I want but I walk out with it. Once it wasn't quite right and I went back the next day and not only was BLO totally amenable to this fix-it (no charge), but Lindzy immediately saw what had to be done to make it work. I am very loyal to my stylists and it was hard to switch over to BLO but I am so glad that I did. Go and enjoy the cool vibe of BLO and pick Lindzy....you won't be disappointed!! more

Seriously best place in the area! 9/1/2011

I have lived in many places here across the US and overseas...best haircuts I ever had were in England...when I moved to the area it was difficult to find any salon to match what I had become accustomed to...until Blo... From the moment I walk into Blo I am made to feel welcome. The place has a super cool vibe to it...their music is killer and I get what i want when i am there - an escape. The front desk staff is always courteous and helpful. I LOVE Heather she is great at what she does but also extremely good at listening to her customer without taking any offense, she never takes anything personally if I want something altered (which is not always the case in this industry)...;) I find that everytime I go in there I am happy to see her, she is like a friend who is always cheerful and sweet. And the hair, well everytime I get my hair done by her I get stopped and asked where I get my hair done...I think that speaks volumes for her ability! I have also had other stylists color my hair and do my eyebrows when I was in a pinch and couldn't get Heather...and they too were very good, kind and courteous. Like you say on your site, there are no egos at blo - at least if there are they don't show up for work:) My son just had a haircut from Jennifer and she was great and everyone has been commenting on his hair. She was really good with him (he is 7)! He looks like a rock star...I might be a little biased...;) Anyway, if you haven't been there...check them out! more

Alysia is the BEST! 7/28/2011

I scheduled an appointment with Alysia after receiving a terrible, terrible haircut from another stylist at a different salon. Because of my lego lady (it was so choppy and jagged) hair cut, I was terrified that she'd have to cut off several inches just to make it look normal.\r \r Before we started, she talked to me about the look I was hoping to achieve the first go round. She listened completely, and I was completely surprised when she told me it'd be cake, she wouldn't have to take much length off and to just trust her.\r \r I could not believe the results when she was done. I kept thinking: How did she manage to take what I had and turn it to the BEST HAIRCUT I'VE EVER HAD?! I was stunned, but completely happy.\r \r I've gotten nothing but compliments on my new locks, and I'll never go to anyone else ever again!\r \r Thanks Alysia!!! You ROCK! more

SO NOT what I asked for.... 6/15/2011

I went in because I was looking fro a new colorist and this salon was voted best by Indy magazine. Big mistake. I showed the stylist a picture of what I wanted and said, ""but of course, keep the length"". First, she didn't know what type of color to use, permanent or demi. Then she proceeds to not ""keep the length"" and cut my hair above the nape of my neck! I have never in my life had it this short. When I expressed concern, she said, ""Tell me you're not freaking out on me"". What's done was done, so I didn't freak out, but I wasn't happy. At least it was all one length, so I thought I could work a bob - albeit a short one. She then starts to thin out the back with some shears. My hair is very fine as it is. When I expressed concern about that, she said she had to do that so it wouldn't flip out in the back. That's what blow dryers are for, no?? Long story short, I walked out of there looking nothing like the picture. I look like a boy. This seems so be a common story among the folks who are not happy with this salon. They simply don't listen. If you like the layered boy cut, by all means, go here. If not, avoid this place. more

Anything but Mediocre 6/10/2011

Having just relocated from the northeast, I've tried a few of the well known salons in the area. Those salons in terms of the environment, service, and the expertise of the stylists were average at best. My daughter recommended me to Blo. Let's start with their environment...open, comfortable, great music, extremely inviting. Their service...consistent, honest...not contrived. Now to their stylists, and my guy ""Jay"". Jay is highly skilled at what he does, both at interpreting and executing the cut you were looking (hoping) for. His active listening skills, couple with his quest to continually update his skills shows with every cut. My wife and daughter tell me that my hair has never looked better ! While I appreciate the compliment , it's a compliment to Jay's talents. Give ""Blo"" a try, and don't pass up the beer or wine they offer. more
