GREAT salon 1/12/2010

I've been going to Elaine at Fly for more than 7 years now (followed her from Salon 21). She is not only a fantastic stylist but also listens to you about what you want, don't want, etc. She has a great eye for what works for you and is honest about it. The atmosphere is fun and hip, great music always playing and local artwork always on display. Great place! Pros: hip & fun atmosphere, great stylists more

steven is the greatest 5/13/2009

Fly Salon is located in a quaint house on Boylan. The owners highlight different local artists every month in the space. It's always a pleasant experience, good music, friendly people and great service! I strongly recommend any of the artists at Fly. Pros: great hair, fair pricing more

Great Stylists and atmosphere!! 1/23/2009

The Fly salon is set up in a cute little house in downtown that makes the experience there very comfortable and personable. All of the stylists are wonderful, friendly and up to date with trends. You can tell they all really care about everyone who comes in. My stylist Kellie relocated to FLY and I am so impressed by the staff and the environment. Glad she found a wonderful new home!! Great stylists, great location and great experience! Pros: Staff, environment more

Great stylist 8/20/2007

They have new stylists at Fly and Sonya was awesome! Very sweet, personable, and most of all she knows how to cut hair. The atmosphere at Fly is very cool and the prices are reasonable. Fly is a very hip downtown salon that you should certainly try out. Pros: Sonya, atmosphere, skill Cons: can't think of any more

horrible 4/29/2007

It was a terrible experience. The stylist did ""fit me in"" when I didn't have an appointment, but I still had to wait 45 minutes. Then she cut my hair dry and still charged me $50 for a cut that ultimately was uneven and shabby. The next stylist I went to commented on how uneven the back looked (and later friends admitted that indeed the back was uneven, I never saw it of course :) -- I've been to lots of different salons; and this one was the worst. Pros: location, ambience Cons: everything else more

Stay away 12/8/2006

The worst salon experience I ever had in my entire life was at Fly. The employees are beyond rude and don't bother making an appointment because apparently it does no good. The first time I went with an appointment I was told to come back in an hour because my stylist was not ready for me and in the middle of helping someone else. So, giving her the benefit of the doubt, I came back in one hour only to find her not even there. I had to wait another 15 minutes for her to arrive. Finally, after almost two hours past my original appointment she washed my hair, cut it and then shoved me in a corner under a drier for another 20 minutes while she started on someone else! She could tell I was not happy and, to her credit, she did apologize and only charged me half price for the cut. I mistakely believed this to be a forgivable mishap and regretfully returned. On my second trip to the salon I was amazed that, yet again, my stylist had double booked and was doing another persons hair when I arrived. Again I was shoved into a corner under a dryer with a wet head watching her do someone else's hair. Visably upset and very perturbed at this point, she proceeded to confront me. In front of everyone she berated me and yelled at me, accusing me of having a bad attitude and telling me that the world doesn't revolve around me. I was so mortified I could barely stand it. The last time I checked, the sole reason for making an appointment is based entirely on the notion that the world does NOT revolve around you. I will NEVER go back to Fly ever again and I strongly urge anyone reading this... do not subject yourself to the vulgar, offensive and disrespectful staff of Fly. It was truly a horrible experience. Cons: Rude and offensive staff more

Why Fly?! 6/10/2006

If you don't get what Fly is about, you probably never will. The staff is current, hip, courteous, fun, friendly and unique. I have been a client for about a year and have never left disappointed. Every time I go for a style, my stylist treats my hair like it is a work of art, looking at the texture, envisioning what he will do to make it the perfect 'do.' He always hits the mark and I always leave looking like I'm headed to an important event. Located in the heart of downtown Glenwood Avenue, the building is a throwback to a Raleigh from years past. The orignal floors and ceiling have been preserved and are just cool to take in. The salon is styled in a bohemic, whimsical sort of way and I always find something new that I've never seen before. Why Fly? Because it is the BEST Salon in town! Pros: Fantastic Staff, Cool Ambience, Great Music Cons: Parking--at certain times of the day more

Run 2 Fly 4 the best hair Glenwood South offers. 5/22/2006

I have followed my hair stylist from a couple of salons over the years in the Raleigh area and I have never felt more at home and well cared for than at Fly. While their Bumble hair line is of great quality I have never felt any pressure to buy unless I chose to. The staff of professionals are friendly, talented and are very well versed and educated within their trade and really know and understand both color and cut. The simplicity and cleanliness of the salon is very noticable and appreciated. Now that I can also pay by credit card if I want, I will Fly to Fly anyday! Pros: Relaxing, Clean, Competitive more

The Atmosphere, the Staff, the Cut 4/19/2006

The Atmosphere:This Salon needs a major facelift. For the prices they charge, they should be investing some of the $$$ back into the salon itself and give it an upscale look. The Staff: Although the atmosphere is poor, the staff is warm & friendly, and listens to their clients The Cut: Each time I go, I am happy with the haircut I receive, which keeps bringing me back. Pros: Staff, Cut, Professionalism Cons: Atmosphere, Floors/Walls, Bathroom more

On top of the wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, I walked away a with a fabulous ""new do!"" My stylist LISTENED to what I had to say and then gave me her professional input and the outcome is gorgeous hair!!! Would highly reccommend this salon to others!!! more

Fly away as fast as possible! 2/8/2006

Fly, let's first start with the name. How long does an average housefly live? 24 hours. That is exactly how long I wanted to live after I walked out of the door. For two and a half hours my image was completely distorted. For a $185, I was appalled at the amateur level of skill that was exhibited at my expense. After thoroughly instructing my stylist of what was required for my monthly upkeep, obviously it flew in one ear and out the other. I feel as though I was robbed of my identity. Bumble should disassociate from such poor quality! more

Going to get a new do or going to maintain an already excellent coif you should feel relaxed and pampered! No doubt about it, leaving Fly you will feel relaxed, pampered AND beautiful.
