Love My New Hair! 9/15/2010

I can?t stop looking at my new hair! I have heavy highlighted blond hair. Catherine made an extension to fill out my ends and give me volume. What an improvement ? the hair color and texture matches perfect and truly looks natural. Thank you Catherine! more

Best Hair Extensions 8/2/2010

I am very happy with my new extensions. The hair blends in perfect and is soft and shiny. I was very impressed by the time taken at the consultation to determine which method would work best for me and to explain all the pros and cons. Catherine is very knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend. Pros: Professional, knowledgeable, thorough more

Hair Extensions 6/7/2010

I love my new seamless extensions! I previously had a weave which irritated my scalp. I then found Catherine who insisted I remove the weave and use a removable wire extension so my hair and scalp could recover. I really wanted something that didn?t come out but Catherine insisted I give my hair a break - I had to wait 6 months. She just attached Platinum seamless extensions ? my hair is very fine ? they just blend in perfectly and feel like my own hair! I can?t feel anything and you would never know I had extensions. Pros: Innovative, Integrity more

Highly Recommended 6/7/2010

Finally, someone who is honest and doesn?t try to ?sell???? Pros: Honest, Knowledgeable more

Highly Recommended 1/25/2010

I came to Catherine to do my weave. She is very precise and conscientious. She does a much finer version of the typical corn row tracks. I find the track much more comfortable and flatter. It also has held in longer (6 weeks). The salon has a very friendly, low key ? comfortable vibe ? no pressure and it is a pleasure to go there and be taken care of. I highly recommend it! Pros: Job well done more

Hair Extensions 1/12/2010

I?ve been going to Catherine for my extensions for about 6 months now. She added about 5-6 inches to my own shoulder length hair. The extension hair is beautiful, shiny, healthy, and matches my hair perfect. She is also taking care of my own hair with regular trims. It is growing out without breaking at the ends like before. Catherine really takes the time to teach me everything possible to maintain the extension and my own hair. I am very happy with her work and highly recommend her. Pros: Great Care more

I Love My Extensions 1/6/2010

Catherine made a removable ""fill"" extension which matches my hair my perfect. It made all the difference - my ends look full and longer. No one would ever know unless you knew me before. Impressive! Pros: Everything more

Weave fell apart fast 11/11/2009

Bad experience 10/10/2009

It is sad that I have to write this, but I do. I had a very poor experience with Catherine. The weave re-done was VERY tight. I have a high tolerance pain, yet the way the extensions were put it was extremely tight. I said it to Catherine several times, however, all that I got back was ""well, if you can't deal with it, I can't do them"". I was VERY shocked. I needed my extensions, but I wish I just walked away. To credit ; I did like the how the extensions were placed, I liked the flatness of the braids, but after a week ( not kidding) of not being able to put my head on a pillow I went to a different salon ( unfortunately Catherine was out of town) and upon evaluation needed to have my extensions removed. I have sore sites all around where the extensions were placed, I need to wait a little to get extensions re-put in,and I am very upset, as long hair is a part of me, and the extensions were there to help my hair grow after a bad haircut. Not to mention that it cost me another 200 to have the extensions removed. Very upset. As well as the fact that I felt that I had to say everything : how I wanted to have my extensions put it, where , etc. I had a piece from a previous stylist what was added to one side to even out the fullness. Catherine didn't think it was needed, I did, but I am used to trusting the stylist ( mistake all around in this case) , but when I came home , I very visibly had much less hair on one side, then the other, and you could really tell from the back. Catherine DID offer to put it in later, but with her schedule and my schedule, it was very difficult to make arrangements on time. The fact that I had to walk out with the hair neither blow-dried, no styled - because she ran out of time . Although blow drying does not take that much time - made me walk out in tears. I have never had a stylist treating me poorly like that. she did offer to sit under the 'hood"" ( the kind you get your color done under) . but WHAT would I look like AFTER? An afro? Disappointment. Yes, it is cheap. I saw a lot of positive reviews and that is why I went to Catherine. Upset with the way I was treated and the result. Pros: Cheap Cons: You get what you pay for more

Bad hair weaves 9/30/2009

Had a hair weave with Catherine. Two months after, when I removed the hair weave, I had a bald spot. Pros: None that I can think of Cons: Hair Weaves more

Great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4/30/2009

Catherine is amazing and her prices are a steal, and I have paid $250 for a haircut at Fekkai, paid $500 for highlights at other top-tier salons, and nobody has ever satisfied me like Catherine has. She listened to what I wanted, told me frankly what was possible with my hair and body type, and gave me the most flattering and complimentary hair colouring job ever. When it comes to hair, I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. She has got it down. She also cares for her clients and there hair, I have had a lot of damage done to my hair in the past due to Job reasons and having to dye it, Catherine was so careful with my hair but gave me what I wanted. not only is she great at highlights she also is WONDERFUL at Extenstions. She has been doing Extenstions for years and is truly a pro. With her extenstions she has transformed my hair from dull and weak to full and beautiful. Catherine has worked miracles on my hair from colour and cut to Extenstions. I have Travelled The Country going to the top salons in the states, and I have never walk out of a salon feeling so great and loving my hair. Turst me you wont be dissipointed with her work. and I highly, highly recommned her if you are looking to add extenstions to your hair. She makes all trypes of Extenstions and styles her methoods are the least damageing to the hair. No one ever knows I have Extnestions in. Trust me when I say this SHE IS WONDERFUL!!! Pros: Amazing, sweet, fun, Cons: nothing more

Beautiful High Quality Hair Extensions! 8/20/2008

I just started going to Catherine this year. I decided that I really wanted hair extensions after going through treatment for cancer. I had to wait until my hair grew out a little bit then I began my search. There are SO many people that advertise for hair extensions but luckily I called Catherine. She is truly an artist and is nothing but accommodating, knowledgeable, and sweet. The hair she uses is very high quality and the results are unbeatable. I LOVE MY HAIR! Pros: Everything! Cons: None! more

Extensions - aways amazed! 2/24/2008

I have worked next to Catherine for years, and in all that time, all I have ever seen is excellent work. I am always amazed when the client is finished and has hair that is perfectly matched in color and texture. I have never seen anyone have the patience and detail that she puts into her work. She uses high quality hair, and she cares enough to make sure the client understands properly, how to take care of the hair, so it can last as long as possible. The other stylists clients' are always fasinated with the process. And I have never seen anyone leave unhappy. I highly reccomend Extensions by Catherine!!!!!!! more

Restored my Hair and Self esteem 1/24/2008

I went to get a long layered cut on my almost waist length hair and ended up with chopped up, neck length hair??I found Catherine through google/citysearch reviews which are dead on! I now have long layered hair while my own hair is growing out. I also intend to stay with Catherine for haircuts and styling after my own hair grows out. She is a pro! Pros: I look great! more

I absolutely LOVE MY HAIR! 11/19/2007

I?ve received tons of compliments. My hair looks really good ? I was actually surprised how good it looked after having done it on my own for the first time and how easy it is to do. All the reviews I read about Catherine are right on. I finally have the long, lustrous hair I?ve always dreamed of. Thanks a million! Pros: Everything was perfect. more

Third Time is a Charm! 6/28/2007

Catherine was my third try at hair extensions. I wanted hair extensions to have a longer, fuller look for my wedding. I started with individuals. I paid a lot of money only to find out that in less than 3 months (not the ?up to 6 months? I was told), I had to completely start over. The color was also a little different than my own hair which was definitely noticeable. I went to someone else and tried again and ended up with extensions that were not full enough, long enough, and the color was not exact. I also didn?t like the fact that with individual bonding, the removal process was pulling out my hair along with the extension hair and you could see and feel the individual bonding pieces over my whole head which bothered me when sleeping. My wedding was fast approaching and I was panicking. I found Catherine on the internet and made a consultation appt. I have to say, ?Wow!? What a different experience from start to finish. Catherine is truly someone who ?cares? about her work. She is very methodical about making everything ?perfect?. I was very nervous by the time I went to see her and she went above and beyond to assure me that I was going to get what I wanted ? longer, fuller, luxurious looking hair. And most importantly, she delivered. She also did beautiful highlights on my roots and corrected the brassy tone throughout my ends. I strongly recommend checking this lady out. more
