Editorial review from Citysearch 5/24/2013

I have been going to see Adam since the winter of 2006. He is the best!! It is totally out of my way to go see him now but I do not care. I would not trust my hair to anyone else. I take my entire family to him and he even gave my son and two nieces their first ""real"" haircuts. I get stopped by strangers quite often and asked where I get my hair cut and I always send them his way! He takes the time to talk with his clients to get a clear understanding of what they want. As far as the couple of bad reviews that I see on here, I don't know what to say because that is not the Adam that I know. He has never said anything unprofessional to me about a client, another stylist or about anything for that matter in all of these years. Also keep in mind that people are far more likely to write a review to complain than they are to compliment. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/27/2012

Adam did a wonderful job highlighting my hair. He colored it exactly the way I wanted and trimmed it nicely. I highly recommend him more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/3/2012

Adam is absolutely amazing! I have gone to him twice and he has done exactly what I asked for. He even did bangs for me for the first time. They came out awesome. MUST VISIT. more

Eeeeh, not so much 2/13/2012

I went in the summer of 2011, say July or August, to Adam. The color looked really nice. Then, he styled my hair with a blow dryer and round brush. When he was done, he asked how it looked. I politely told him the coloring looked fine, but I couldn't tell about the style, as that was not how I typically did my hair. He got very defensive and tried to persuade me that I liked how he did it. There was a little back and forth, and finally, I just left because I was done of debating it. Frankly, it had become annoying. \r \r When I got home, the bottom layer was uneven. Instead of going back to fix it, I just went to someone else. more

Great Place! 12/3/2011

I've been going to Adam for over 2 years now. I forgot the salon number and recently looked it up and saw the bad review on here and HAD to write my own.\r \r Adam is a GREAT stylist. He is a very nice person and extremely focused on doing a great job. He does awesome layers to make your hair stack and his highlights are just as good. If anything, he knows how to layer better than any other stylist I've been to. \r \r Like the prior poster, just know ahead of time that he may be a little late for you scheduled appt. because he is taking his time with the last. But remember he will spend just as much time and thought with you.\r \r People ask me where I get my hair done because they love the cut. I proudly say Adam. Give him a try and you won't be disappointed. more

Great Place to Get a Haircut! 12/1/2011

Adam has been cutting my hair now for over a year, of which I have nothing but good thing's to say about him. He is definitely a professional and perfectionist, who takes a lot of pride in his work. Lareesa is very pleasant and friendly as well. Occasionally, you may have to wait because Adam doesn't rush and wants you to get your money's worth! I read one of the reviews here about some prima donna crying about her disappointment after only one visit. She should lighten up and I was somewhat offended, because I have gotten to know Adam and he is a great person and a solid professional! more

adam :dr. jekyll and mr. hyde. DON'T CHANCE UR HAIR'S HEALTH 9/13/2011

WHERE TO BEGIN...I WENT IN THE BEGINNING OF JANUARY. I went becuz my neighbor had her virgin hair bleached by him. it took him 6 hours but it looked wonderful and the price was cheap. so, i make an appointment. he was quitting smoking and on some drug to help me quit smoking which can or could have caused his bizarre behavior. He was mad becuz I had used box color to do my hair. He said he would have to use bleach to strip it out. I had worked more than a year to get my hair healthy. He burned it. Then he puts bleached on my eyebrows. He charged me for a CORRECTIVE coloring so he could charge me more. HE EVEN GAVE SUCH A BAD HAIRCUT that one side of my hair had 3 extra longer than the other side. the horrible part was I HAD TO POINT IT OUT TO HIM. when I finally went to Atomic salon and had a girl named Bree or something like that. she told me she worked w/ him at Michells salon and he was crazy. She said he gave horrible haircuts. Another stylist at Atomic salon was there and worked w/ Adam at Mitchell's. The hair stylist called her over to show her what damage and crazy cut or bascially how Adam butchered my hair. They could not help but laugh. Even then she just put a drab brown and would not totally fix the crazy lazy layers he put in my hair. I finally went to a salon and told them just to cut off all the damage from the ""stripping w/ bleach: Adam did. I still have horrible looking hair. The sides that he did uneven are growing out so slow. But my hair is healthy now...short but healthy and I am still coloring it. I think it is great if some ppl go in and Adam is polite and does your hair well. He was polite and did my neighbor's hair well. He did not charge her a lot. If you want to take the chance...go in w/ virgin hair. I would not trust him w/ a cut. He will prolly want to give u a bob or if u are a man he will give u the Justin bieber cut. Again, I look in the mirror everyday since the beginning of 2011 and am reminded of what hair trauma drama he put me thru. There was no reason to have to strip my hair. It seems he is just an up and down person. Oh, AND HE TOLD ME HE GOT A BACK REVIEW ONE TIME AND IT WAS BECUZ THE WOMAN WAS HITTING ON HIM AND HE DID NOT ACT ON HER ADVANCES. i WAS NOT HITTING ON ADAM AND I AM CERTAINLY NOT WRITING THIS BECUZ OF SPURRED ADVANCES. i think that was a very arrogant response to an unhappy customer. HE RUINED MY HAIR...WHO KNOWS WHAT HE WILL DO TO YOURS. HE IS A WILD CARD OR MAYBE JUST BI -POLAR. 7 months....7monts...I finally have healthy hair but I can't style it becuz I really only have less than 3 1/2 inches of healthy hair to work with. My hair was bleached and damaged to the scalp. hair grows only 1in. to 1/2 inches a month. My hair tends to do 1/2 in. The stylist who have tried to fix his blunder keep having to cut my hair even now that it is healthy becuz the cut he gave had such uneven layers. The whole mullet thing comes in to play so every time I go into see a good stylist they have to cut the back so I don't have the infamous mullet. I hope to one day forgive Adam for ruining my hair and betraying my trust in the fact he knew what he was doing. just beware. I repeat my neighbor w/ virgin hair was took forever but it was cheap and it looked wonderful...then I go in and it was fired and died and I am still suffering and terrified of another adam coming along. I am just sticking to Salon Moxie or Samuel Cole. I will save money to go to pros who are constantly being educated on how to do hair. more

Bad hair day! 6/25/2011

Took a chance and got burned...literally!! more

Champs Hair Salon 6/11/2011

I called for an appointment on a weekend, and Adam said come right over. I was afraid that he would rush me in and out as quickly as possible. Instead, he sat down and asked what I liked and what I didn't like about my hair. I decided I liked his attitude and his method, so I told him to decide the cut based on his opinions of my face shape/hair texture, etc. I was pleased very pleased with the results, the atmosphere, and the way I was treated. I will certainly be a repeat customer. more


I saw my neighbor's hair and I HAD to know who had made her a NATURAL looking blond. She told me ask for Adam at Hair Champs. Yesterday, I did just that. I had red hair I had done myself and then I cut it myself. Adam told me I needed a corrective color becuz I really wanted it lighter Instead of just doing my roots to an awful hair color I got from a box. I now have hair color I can be proud to seen. HAIR I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD EVER HAVE!!! mynatural hair is almost black! The hair cut that he fixed is beyond cute. He was wonderful. He got rid of all the dry and dead hair I had caused from trying to color on my own. . Now, I have healthy hair...that I am going to take very good care of.\r \r The salon is off Glenwood ave near Lynwood Grill. I would go to Adam ...get my hair done....then hang out at the Grill!!!\r \r Adam is a perfectionist. U r not going to be walking out of that salon w/ red/orange/ yellow would not allow that...Thank God. \r \r He was very patient w/ me. I was a nervous wreck going thru this total change. I look like an entirely different person. No salon has done that for me!\r \r Do yourself a favor. Call Hair Champs and Ask for Adam...esp. if u want ppl to think u were born blond. \r \r I will be a dedicated client. I hope after reading this will go and you will become a dedicated client too. more

immensely competent 11/30/2010

I simply cannot understand how anyone has had a negative experience with Adam. he is masterful! I went to him for a dramatic change in hairstyle and was so completely impressed and happy. I'd had long hair for years and was desperate for a change and went very short and absolutely love it. it was a bit of a nervewracking experience, but Adam cut it exactly as I requested. it is cute, stylish, fun and several people commented on how it appeared to be a great cut (not just style). Adam is superb, really. more

Don't waste your time.... 8/26/2010

Worst haircut I have ever had. Nothing more to say. Don't go. more

Don't go 1/1/2010

He cut all my hair off, colored it red ( I wanted it blond) and wouldn't repair it. I didn't have any bangs. My friends couldn't believe what a hack job he did. Maybe he didn't like me. I would have gladly left if that was the case. It took forever for it to grow. When I went to another salon that couldn't beieve what a rotton job he did. Don't go. Cons: didn't listen to a word I said more

I wouldn't go back if you paid me to 12/9/2009

I thought I was dealing with professionals, I should have walked out the minute that man gave me attitude. Not only was he rude, but he chopped off all my hair when I only wanted a trim. I am now stuck with a bad haircut until I can get a new style when it grows back out! \r I will be very careful next time I want to try a new salon! Pros: cheap Cons: Not prefessional, nor talented. more

The Best Hair Technician 6/7/2009

I have lived here for almost 4 years and have not been able to find a stylist who is reasonably priced that does outstanding work until I came to Hair Champs and met Adam. He is simply amazing. He listened to me and we actually spent about 20 minutes discussing my lifestyle and what I was all about. He said he knew just what to do and to trust him. I gave it a whirl and WOW the result what just what I wanted both in color and style. I can't wait to get back in to see Adam. I finally found a place that I will continue to visit!!! Pros: listened, talented, attention to detail more

High quality at reasonable price 12/10/2007

I prefer to do my hair in this salon for several reasons. First, it's easy to make an appointment, no long waiting period as in other salons with comparable services. Second, Larissa, the owner and stylist, is extremely pleasant and professional. My hair is thin and flat, but with the haircut from Larissa, styling is easy, beautiful shape and added volume. You can trust her taste and skills, just relax in the chair, and she will choose the style that flatters your face and personality. And third, the place is clean and cheerful. And all this for a very reasonable price. What else to look for? I and my both daughters love this salon. Thank you , Larissa!\r Pros: Professionalism, attitude, location Cons: No early hours more

Stylish, as in good big-city salon 6/12/2007

Walid did a great job with my hair. Medium-length haircut - very stylish (I didn't give him specific instructions, so he was creative) and suits my face really well. He also corrected my hair color: I had a terrible mix of highlights, colors etc. - all with about 2inches routes (disaster, yes). He did some highlights and colored the rest, was very meticulous, worked on my hair forever, carefully selecting each strand... Overall, I was VERY pleased. Price was very reasonable too. \r \r Somewhere below there were complains about waiting if you come without an apointment. Well, the salon took that user's recommendation and installed big TV. So enjoy if you have to wait :)\r more

Simply the BEST! 3/26/2007

From the first time I met Walid, I was really impressed. He is simply the best hairstylist I have ever had. I have gotten my haircut with Walid 4 times now since serendipitiously stumbling upon him. And each time I come to Hair Champs to get my haircut, I always leave feeling completely satisfied and pleased with what an absolutely amazingly job Walid does on my hair. I have never received so many compliments before on my haircut as I do when I get it cut with Walid. Walid always takes his time...sometimes spending more than an hour and a half on my hair...the longest I have ever had any stylist spent on my hair. He is very meticulous and such a perfectionist always making sure that every strand falls in the right place. Not only is Walid very talented and creative, he is also a caring and thoughtful individual constantly making sure that you are doing alright. I would highly recommend Walid to everyone. Pros: definitely Walid, friendly staff, tidy atmosphere, easy parking more

Best Price, Great Atmoshpere, Amazing Staff - Walid is Great!!! 10/26/2006

Only place in Raleigh that can cut my hair with clippers. Great if your ex-military! Walid is awesome, he is the consummate professional. The conversation amongst the staff is always interesting and funny. If you go here, take the time to get to know the staff, it definitely make each visit that much better. The price is also the best in town for the quality you get. Their goal is quality, not quantity, you don't pay for frivolous things that other places charge you. You get a cut and a shampoo for $15.00. You might have to wait a bit longer, however when its your turn in the chair, you know that they will take all the time necessary to do the job correctly and to your likening!!!!! If you do not believe me just go get your hair cut here and see for yourself. more

One of the Best Haircuts... ever! 8/16/2006

Being new to the area and not knowing too many places, I had gotten a couple of really bad hack-jobs. I stumbled across this place by accident one day (after a movie at the Raleigh Grande) and what an awesome experience! I didnt have an appointment so I waited about 20 minutes (not bad at all). Larissa immediately made me feel at ease. When she was done with my haircut after about 25 minutes it was perfect!! I'm very finicky about my hair and wa a bit nervous at first, but she did such a great job that I talked my wife into going there. She absolutely loved her haircut/style by Walid. Infact now, I even have my little 5 year old going there as well, and he won't go anywhere else! \r Hair Champs is definitely tops in my books. I highly recommend it for Women, Men AND Children. Pros: Very Friendly Staff, Excellent Skill, Prompt service more
