place to go 10/13/2010

Your review Place to go!? - ? - Today I often pass by KARMA with its big glass windows displaying busy hair dressers and cheerful activity-it is almost always full, never a still moment. This was my second visit to Karma and I finally got an appointment with the owner, Cheryl. Usually she is booked 3-5 weeks in advance. I walked out a happy woman- had taken pictures of my last haircut that I spent $80 on in a New York salon (my husband drove me to NYC just for that !) and wanted the same cut with slight variation.Got exactly that. Cheryl is great- she will take time out to listen to what you want and then execute it with finesse, her shears working almost effortlessly. I have had a history of unhappy haircuts where I was unable to communicate effectively what I needed or that the hairdresser was impatient to cut but not to listen. Here, you're getting superb New York high-end salon quality at a far more reasonable price. And if $52 is still above your budget, I'd recommend you wait & save up but go to KARMA if you can. You'll thank yourself for it. more

Karma Salon 3/12/2010

I have been a client at Karma Salon since it opened in 11/99. Before that I was Cheryl's client at Panache. My haircuts are always beautiful and garner many compliments. Cheryl makes sure, that in addition to excellent work, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. I would highly recommend Karma to anyone who wants to look great and be treated well by their stylist. Cheryl and Karma are 5 stars all the way. more

Kudos to Karma 3/6/2010

I've been a client at Karma (with Cheryl) for about 10 my husband goes as well...great between "clean ups." Love the Chai tea (or wine)...ALWAYS ALWAYS on time and I'm out in 35 minutes. Perfect for me. Martha more

a great place for FAB hair and service 2/17/2010

I have been going to see Cheryl at KARMA for years- she always treats me and all of her customers right. I feel special and beautiful every time I leave! more

No Karma at Karma 2/13/2010

The best part of Karma is that they lost their two top stylists, Christy and Cassie, to JoBella at the Omni. more

BEST of the BEST 1/28/2010

I have been going to Karma for several years now and I am never disappointed and always satisfied. My stylist, Cheryl, is so very talented and professional that both of my sisters come from out of state just to see her! They have great atmosphere and the staff is always friendly. As someone who is in the same business as well, I highly recommend Karma. more

OMG! 1/27/2010

Called to book with Christie and SHE IS NOT THERE ANYMORE!!! Found her at Jo Bella in the Omni! Thank GOD!! Love you Christie I will follow you to the ENDS OF THE EARTH!!! more


I have been a loyal customer for about three and a half years and I refuse to go anywhere else. I usualy see Cheryl, the owner, and she outdoes herself every single time! From haircuts, full highlights, or going from black to blonde, it always looks PHENOMINAL! I am constantly receiving compliements on my hair and I owe it all to her! I've also reffered friends (of all ages both male and female) and Cheryl has made them all look great! So take my word for it and book your appointment with Cheryl now! I promise you won't regret it :) more

the perfect salon 1/27/2010

I've been going to Karma for about 5 years, and have loved every haircut I've gotten there! Cheryl, the owner, is so talented, so considerate, and such a great professional--- she really knows how to make her clients feel special and look great! more

Just fantastic 1/26/2010

Karma salon is an excellent place. I have never been so consistently pleased with my haircuts. The owner, Cheryl, is always cheerful, bubbly, and knows exactly what I need. I've never been less than thrilled with one of her haircuts, and she runs the place very well. more

Great Men's Cuts! 1/26/2010

I have been going to Karma for years! As a guy I appreciate the great quality cuts and extremely friendly and comfortable surroundings. I have finally found a place that has top quality and yet I feel like I fit in. more

EXCELLENT! 1/21/2010

I went into Karma after Soho Hair and Day Spa "glazed" my hair pitch black. I wanted to go back to my original dark brown color, which Soho said they could not do. I called Karma today and they took me right away. After discussing the major process of stripping the color from my hair (because the glaze Soho said they used on me was a wash-out, was actual hair dye) Holly decided to do highlights all over my head that took almost three hours. They did an excellent job, although I wasn't satisfied with the color because my hair reacted to the dye differently, I called Karma right away and they took me in the same day to make my hair PERFECT. Cheryl got my color exactly how I wanted. Karma treats their customers with respect and explains everything that they are doing to your hair. I will definitely keep going back for their stellar service! more

exactly what i wanted! 8/6/2009

My hair is naturally fine, dry, and can't seem to decide whether it is wavy or straight - not exactly easy to work with. At every other salon I've been to, I ask for a cut that will work with the natural (unstyled) texture of my hair, but I always seem to end up with something that looks great blown out and crummy every other day. Karma was the first salon I have ever been to where the stylist (I had Cassie) was actually successful in giving me a cut that makes my hair seem fuller, softer, and smoother every day, regardless of how much (or little) I style it. Even two months later, the cut still looks great. And because Karma doesn't sell hair products, the product recommendations Cassie gave me weren't the $30 bottles of shampoo at the front of the store but simple, affordable products that work great for my hair. For as long as I'm in New Haven, I will definitely be sticking with Cassie at Karma. more

fantabulous!! 6/17/2009

Rude Owner 5/10/2009

The owner there is so rude! Too bad ... more

love Jamie 3/13/2009

I always go to see Jamie whenever I get my hair cut - he is so meticulous and takes his time to really do it correctly. I find that my hair falls perfectly for the next two months (until I come back for my free trim!) and I always feel relaxed afterwards. Plus, he's just a really nice guy. I definitely recommend Karma. more

I heart Cassie! 2/26/2009

Decided somewhat on a whim to go from my natural dark brown shade to platinum blond. Cassie transformed my hair, and made sure to do it in a way so that my hair (which had undergone some serious treatments) was still soft, shiny and smooth. She also gave me an amazing, versatile cut that looks great whether I take the time to blow it out or tousle some gel in it and let it go curly. I am so satisfied and will definitely be going back to see her! I highly recommend it! more

A loyal customer 1/16/2009

I've been going to Karma for eight years now and have never had a bad experience. Tea, a head massage, and a great hair cut -- what more could a girl ask for? I was a student during several of those years and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of service and talent of the stylists. Super! more

LOVE it!!! 1/11/2009

Karma Salon is the best. After a terrible and costly experience at another salon, I tried Karma based on a recommendation from a friend. Christie is such a great stylist! She really listens to what you want, and is honest about how it will work with your hair texture, and how much effort you will need to put in to maintain it. She spent a lot of time asking questions about what sort of things I liked and wanted in a haircut before even getting started. Very impressive! I ended up spending a quarter of what I did at the other salon, and left looking and feeling a hundred times better. I always get a ton of compliments on my hairstyle after it is done, and Christie cuts hair in a way that it will grow in nicely, and you can change the part and it still looks good. Also... When you are at Karma you are treated so well. At the Salon where I had a bad experience, I was barely given the time of day, probably because I wasn't carrying an Hermes handbag and talking about me recent trip to Europe. At Karma, you are welcomed warmly and offered something to drink, and the vibe in the room is so friendly. You can tell that the stylists all are friends with one another, and the way that they treat their clients is friendly and down to earth. I can't say enough about this place! I'm so glad that I went. I will continue to go there as long as I am living in the area. I would probably even travel pretty far if I do ever move... -Sharon more
