I've been a client of the owner, Jimmy Lumia, for more than 15 years thanks to his fantastic hair cuts and highlights. Jimmy is a real expert with color, which is important to me....


Moved to the area a year ago and since my previous stylist was so great I took my time finding a new one. I thought I had found a good one with Jeff at Geoffrey James salon. I w...

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/17/2012

Kate is AMAZING!!! I started going to Kate about 6 months ago and have been so please with her work. Kate does my cuts, color, Keratin treatments (amazing results), and has also done my makeup for a few occasions. Kate is a true artist and takes such pride in what she does. I have never left her chair feeling anything short of amazed at my hair. I always get so many compliments on my color and so proud to say Kate Alexander colors my hair. I also absolutely love the Keratin treatments. My hair is so healthy, shiny, and grows so fast thanks to these treatments, so good for your hair! She also cuts my husband's hair too, and he has never been more pleased! I absolutely love Kate and would highly recommend her to anyone!!! more

I recently went to Kate for a color correction, and SOOOO glad I did. I had a horrible experience at my previous salon and was so upset. A co-worker recommended Kate, and thank god she did! Kate completely recovered and transformed my awful color job and my hair looks so gorgeous. The color is so rich and shiny and I get compliments every single day. I am so glad I found Kate and I can't wait to make my next appointment with her. more

Kate delivers top-notch service. Kate has been coloring and cutting my hair for two years now and I must say that I am always impressed. She is absolutely the best!!! She can really achieve the most dimensional hair color and never disappoints. She's taken me from blond, to brown, and back to blond again numerous times and my hair is always very healthy and shiny. I've gotten so many compliments on my hair over the years and I really owe it to Kate. She's very talented and very good at recommending what would work best on your hair... she knows the products that she works with. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/23/2012

Kate’s been my stylist for over five years. I came to her with unruly, curly hair growth after chemo treatments from cancer but left that day with a gorgeous cut and color, not to mention a phenomenal boost in self-image. Since then, she has continued to listen carefully, offer sensible advice, and execute perfect cuts. Add to that her artistry with color and the result equals one satisfied and grateful client. In addition to her expertise with a scissors, she is dependable, organized, thorough, and exact. She focuses solely on her time with me without distractions or delays. If she sounds too good to be true, she is. She makes my day because I know I will look better, feel better, and smile more after I see her. She’s truly a rare find! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/12/2012

There is nobody better than Kate! I have gone to the wonderful Kate for about 5 years. I was in tears at my first appointment because I have frizzy thinning curly hair that I could not control. She is patient, a good listener and guided me through a variety of low chemical choices that had me hooked after the first visit. I have never been happier with my hair, its look and manageability, and it is all thanks to Kate! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/9/2012

Kate Alexander is THE BEST!!!!. I knew the first time I met her that she understood my hair. I have been struggling with my frizzy, uncontrollable, curls for my entire life (and it seems no stylist quite gets curly hair). She took one look at me and immediately knew what to do for me. She suggested a Brazilian Blowout and am I GLAD i listened to her! The transformation is unbelievable! I have zero frizz, soft, shiny hair, my hair dries in no time, and I don't get anxiety thinking about styling my hair in these hot, humid summers. Kate is the first stylist I've worked with whom I've remained a loyal customer to. Her cuts are superb, she always gives me amazing color, and most importantly helps me control my frizzy curls! Every time I get my hair done with her, the compliments pour in. Kate, you are an absolute gift!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/6/2012

Fantastic Stylist. I can't say enough about Kate! She is one terrific stylist, and I look forward to each appointment with her. I found Kate through City Search, as the reviews she received from her clients were really complimentary. I am so happy I decided to try her out, she is fantastic. Along with my hair, I have seen tons of her other work since I also referred her to my mom, sister, co-workers, and friends. She is such a talented colorist and stylist and she really listens to her clients to help them obtain the look they want! She works hard to keep my look fresh and my color vibrant. She is always professional and provides a high quality of service . I get asked all the time for the name of my stylist and I am thrilled to refer her to my family, friends, clients or anyone that asks!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/31/2012

Talented stylist & colorist. I have been going to Kate for over two years now and she always exceeds my expectations. She is always so professional and is up-to-date on the latest styles, cuts, and colors. We have a consultation before every appointment just to make sure I still want the same thing, or to see if I want a change. She always listens to what I want and really goes the extra mile to please her clients. I would HIGHLY recommend her for any of your cosmotology needs :) more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/29/2012

So happy I got a Brazilian Blowout!! I just recently got my first Brazilian Blowout by Kate. I am so pleased the results!!! I can see a HUGE difference from before and after the Brazilian Blowout. My hair dries faster, has NO frizz, is softer, smoother, and is so easy to style without a ton of ""frizz-free"" products in my hair. I HIGHLY recommend getting Brazilian Blowout by Kate... she's the BEST! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/27/2012

GORGEOUS COLOR!!!! Kate is a miracle worker! I went to Kate after I was referred to her by a friend of mine. I went to her for a color correction since the past four salons I went to I was very disappointed with. Kate listened to what I wanted and also gave her suggestions. My hair now looks rich, shiny, and healthy.... exactly what I wanted. I am so happy I went to Kate. She is so talented and I would recommend her to anyone!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/8/2012

Brazilian Blowout is AMAZING. So glad I took Kate's advice and got my first Brazilian Blowout. The results are incredible. I have such curly, frizzy hair and in the summers it's absolutely uncontrollable. I got my Brazilian Blowout and I am more than impressed. My hair is so soft, frizz-free, and dries in no time! I love love love this treament and would recommend it to anyone! Go see Kate for a Brazilian Blowout! more

Jimmy Lumia - great service, highly skilled stylist/colorist 10/1/2011

I've been a client of the owner, Jimmy Lumia, for more than 15 years thanks to his fantastic hair cuts and highlights. Jimmy is a real expert with color, which is important to me. And, I always get personal attention; he never double books clients, unlike at many big salons in Raleigh. I am really particular about my hair, and Jimmy takes the time to listen and make suggestions. I give Geoffrey James Salon my highest recommendation!\r more

Kim is awesome! 8/5/2009

I have followed Kim for 8yrs now and she always gives me awesomes cuts & highlights. I have never leave the salon disappointed. Pros: friendly& talented more

Fantastic Kate 6/17/2009

Kate has been doing my hair for one year and I am just thrilled with her work. I am in the entertainment industry and always have to look my best. Kate makes it really easy for me. She always gives me spectacular color, style and hair care. She has even done my makeup for several special events. She is very talented and easy to work with. I moved to Raleigh a couple of years ago and tried a few of the ""best"" Raleigh salons and then I met a friend who had great hair and she referred me to Kate. I reserved writing any reviews until I was absolutely sure about Kate, but have no doubts, her work is consistent and exceptional. Pros: Nice atmosphere more

Outstanding cut and color 4/22/2009

I went to Kate after reading some reviews on city search and she did a wonderful job. Kate is a great listener and did exacly what I wanted. She did great with my haircut and I cant express how happy I am with my color. I will definitely be back. more

Kim Is a GREAT Hairstylist 3/6/2009

I've been going to Kim for years now since I moved up to Raleigh and I haven't been anywhere else. She is wonderful. She's very good at giving subtle highlights that complement your face and skin tone. She adds alot of little touches that just makes your hair look wonderful. I've gotten all my friends to go there now and they all say that she's great. I would highly recommend her to anyone. WONDERFUL!!!! more

Heidi is a wonderful stylist 2/4/2009

Everyone, Heidi is wonderful! I came into her 2 weeks ago with washed out shapeless hair, and I don't even look the same. She put ""dimension"" back in and gave me a style that really works with my features.\r She also spent time showing me how to style it and gave me time saving tips. Plus she is really fun to talk to. I have been getting double takes by coworkers and my husband loves my new look. I've finally found my hair stylist. I highly recommend Heidi! Pros: Everything! more

Kate is amazing 12/4/2008

After reading all of the reviews about this salon I decided to call and make an appointment, my appointment was with Kate. I had not had my hair done in about six months, I needed something to freshen me up. Kate really listened to my concerns she gave me subtle highlights and applied what she called a glaze on the rest of my hair which made it incredibly shiny and the cut is fabulous as well. This was the change I needed without being to shocking everyone loves my hair I am thrilled! more

Tried for 10 months 9/5/2008

Moved to the area a year ago and since my previous stylist was so great I took my time finding a new one. I thought I had found a good one with Jeff at Geoffrey James salon. I was wrong. My first cut and highlights were good, not fantastic, but since Jeff seemed like a nice person and seemed to listen I thought after a few visitis he would understand what my hair will and will not do. At my last visit he left long uneven peices that I had to trim and my last highlights were skinny strips. I know everyone is trying to save money but he is doing this by using less product and charging the same price. it is a total waste of my time and money to get these results. He took such little time cutiing my hair on my last visit that I wondered if he had cut anything at all (of course he had but a few qucik snips and your're done). At each visit I mention any issue I had with the last cut./color but he does the same thing. After my first visit I recommended him to friends but after my last visit I mentioned to them that I had given up on Jeff and would be looking for a new stylist. Each said they thought the same thing, one had gone a few times the others just once. One had skimmpy highlights and the others had uneven issues and not the right cut. One said after just two weeks the cut was grwoing out badly and she was having a tough time styling it. We all walked in with different hair types and styles but we all walked out with the same basic cut. Maybe he has one style that he does, short or long this is what he does. Also the prices on their wesite are less that what they actually charge. more
