die hard client - all the way from Portland, OR! 11/2/2008

I had been going to CSS for almost a year before I moved to Portland and I can't wait to go back home to see Andrea for my next appointment! I have curly hair that was long and decided, after moving, to cut it short. What a mistake! I should have waited to go home and have Andrea do it! Curly hair is complicated and Andrea proved to me that she knows how to work with my hair, unlike the two different stylists I've seen in Portland. She is friendly (as well as the rest of the staff - usually there are smiles all around) and great at what she does. She takes the time to listen to what I want and gets it right. Even if it means scheduling a follow-up. She's also honest, which I appreciate! I'm calling soon to book my appointment 2 months in advance so she can fix this mess :( Pros: affordable, friendly, trendy atmosphere, small flat screens at every station! Cons: parking, carry mostly Redken - not much else more

5 Star 10/21/2008

In the 10+ years my friends and I have been going to the salon, we have always had a great experience. What I really like is always hearing how they have just returned from an event with new hair ideas. Sometimes you'll see staff members practicing new techinques in the back of the salon. I enjoy going there, Chris always makes it a point to say hello. The front desk always greets with a smile and Rita always makes certain I am comfortable. Consistency is about the best I can put it. Chris always said to tell our friends to check them out by simply getting a shampoo and blowdry. That's how my girlfriend started going there. Pros: always new stuff Cons: add some new products more

Love this place 9/20/2008

Boy, foreversally must have picked an odd day. I'm checking out CitySearch today for my own business and just got back from Salon Salvatore Christian so I glanced at their listing. I saw a review mentioning they were fighting? The reviewer doesn't say how her hair turned out. Hope it's great. I'm sorry to hear the experience was not good. I've been going to Chris (the owner) about every 8 weeks or so for (wow) over 10 years now! I can't say that I've ever witnessed a single argument. It's not that I'm implying foreversally is not telling the truth or anything, but what the luck? I'd give it another try if I were her. I always love my cut and color. When Chris isn't available I'm comfortable with any of the other stylists. The stylists are all very well trained. They listen to any suggestions I have and if I just let them do what they want I'm always happy with the result. Ok. There was one time quite a few years back I insisted he make me a platinum blonde and let's just say - ""my bad"" I couldn't pull that look off. But I certainly wouldn't be a customer for a decade if I wasn't happy. And I travel all the way from Palm Harbor now! Wouldn't go anywhere else. They make it a great, fun, welcoming atmosphere. more

Stop Fighting 9/17/2008

I have been looking for a new hair salon since I have moved to Tampa, but with all of the different hair salons around I never know which one is good. Last night I was watching tv and saw a commercial for this salon. So today I thought that I would look it up and read the reviews. I am disgusted, all the back and forth fighting!!! IS THIS A BUSINESS OR A HIGH SCHOOL? Needless to say I will find a hair salon that is a little more professional. more

Previous reviews are surprising 7/8/2008

I am really surprised to see the previous reviews, and personally, I don't think you should post about a salon unless you personally have used their services. I have been going to Salvatore Christian for over 4 years now, and I have seen numerous people. They were all awesome. Not once has my hair ever been messed up. And if it was, I know they would fix it. In fact, Jessica and Chris did my hair for my wedding in May. I had so many compliments on how it came out. I also had Michelle do my nails. She did a really beautiful job. Many times, people ask me where my hair done and I have given several referals to the salon. more

Good Job Daniel!! 5/8/2008

Daniel did the right thing and contacted the client with the hair issues she's been having. I'm very happy he did what should have been done a loooooooong time ago!!! Good JOB more

Great Customer Service? 5/7/2008

Update, my girlfriend went back to Alex for the fourth time now. I have to say that for the first time the haircut actually looked good. She didn't try to make my middle-aged friend look 15. Kudos!! On the other hand, the color job was the WORST ever!!! She's 4 for 4 as far as missing that same huge spot on the left side of the back of her head. It's still dark brown and sticks out like a sore thumb. The newest thing is that the back of her head (what wasn't missed that is,) was highlighted blonde. The ENTIRE front of my significant other's hair is pureGRAY!!! Especially her bangs. Nice going Alex. Now instead of looking 58, she looks like my grandmother who is in her 80's. She knows that her hair looks terrible, but is too scared to call the salon and go back. She's afraid that she'll hurt Alex's feelings to ask her to fix what she messed up. more

comment on comment 5/1/2008

Lavin3's review is hilarious. Since when do you have to KNOW a person personally to see that they do lousy work? Their work speaks for itself. more

Great customer service 4/25/2008

I've been going to Salvatore Christian for @ least 5 years, maybe more. Yes, Michael was my stylist before he left, and I did think he was wonderful, but Alix, whom I have now is wonderful too. In all the years I've been going there, I have NEVER waited more than 5 minutes for my appointment, & frequently, if I am early for my appointment, they take me right then! Everyone there is very nice & friendly & helpful. I NEVER worry about my purse when I am there. And I know for a fact if I were ever unhappy with my cut or color or highlights, I can just go back & they will make it right!! I would highly recommend Alix. She is patient & caring & provides excellent customer service! Oh, & the reason I left my old salon was because the owner, even though he was married, was going through some kind of mid-life crisis & all he wanted to do was flirt with all the young, cute girls & was treating me like I was invisible when I was there, and I was his age! That would NEVER happen @ Salvatore Christian! more

Great cut, color & Stylists!! 4/15/2008

Honestly, after reading the reviews of people going back and forth about Alix (<-how you spell her name) I'm not gonna lie- obviously she has something to offer that shes getting several people writing reviews all about her! And I'm going to be the next to do so. Pros: fun, friendly, and awesome hair Cons: parking-but thats not the end of the world more

SLeighIdiot 3/17/2008

Is it more hilarious that a satisfied client who has been seeing Alix for years can give her a great review, or that some cheap loser can give her a negative review without having ever have had so much as a trim? Or, is it more hilarious that I know for a fact that the friend of queenofdepression continues to see Alix on a regular basis and loves her hair every time she leaves the salon? Perhaps it's even more hilarious that you decided to get involved in this as well. Pros: Cutting edges styles Cons: cheap idiots like queenofdepression more

Their best stylist Michael doesn't work here anymore :( 3/9/2008

Michael was great, he was very talented with both cuts and color and was wonderful with the customers. Since he left, the customer service kind of went a little downhill. My friend uses a girl named Alex. I stopped going to the salon after Michael left, but my friend has Alex do her hair. I haven't met Alex, but I'm not impressed with her work. It seems that everytime my friend goes for a cut, color and highlights, she misses an entire section in the back of her head with the highlights. Also, she is young, and most of her clientelle is young. She gives the same haircut to a tiny petite 25 year old as she does to a large woman in her late 50's which is not attractive in the least. Pros: They need to bring Michael back to the salon!! Cons: very expensive more

Best Salon in all of FLORIDA!!! 2/24/2008

You shouldn't go anywhere else but Salon Salvatore Christian!!! Make sure you see my stylist, Alix!! She is the most amazing stylist! I have been to so many different stylist in my lifetime, and none of them can capture the perfect image for me quite like Alix. She knows exactly how to map a cut and color for my face, not just an ordinary look..she makes it personal for me. I can honestly say that I have not looked this great in years!! Alix made this Stella get her groove back!! Salon Salvatore Christian has such a friendly crew and they always humor me! Loves it and you should too! Go visit Alix- she'll hook ya up with a great look! Pros: Great atmosphere, excellent skilled stylist, fun and affordable!! more

Interesting place 11/15/2007

If you like tatoos, piercings and bad language -- this is the place for you. Also, ladies, keep an eye on your purses! Cons: Bad language, not great results, appointments never start on time more

I LOVE my hair! 7/25/2007

I have been going to ssc for a few years now, and have seen a few of the different stylists that work there. Every time i walk out of there i love my self even more. they make me feel great not to mention how awesome my hair looks when i leave. I have never met a group of stylists who i feel really care about my hair. they are very well trained and advanced in up to date looks. i would recomend anyone check out this salon! Pros: great people, the hair dryers hang from the ceiling, redken products more

Great people 6/17/2007

My wife & I have been using Salon Salvatore Christian for about 3 years now. I usually have Chris cut mine, and he always does an excellent job. My wife usually has Jennifer do her hair, also getting highlights, with mutiple shades .... not sure exactly what you call it, but I know it looks awsome ... as for me, I just let Chris do his thing, and have never been dissappointed. The atmosphere is great, I am always greeted by name when I walk in. Having my own business, I can tell you these people know customer service. I'm not one to usually write reccomendations, but have sent a couple of my freinds there , and they have been happy with the service, so I do not have any reservations giving them the thumbs up. Pros: Great atmosphere, friendly people Cons: Tight parking, but found it easier to park in the back of the store. more

Terrible customer service! 3/30/2007

I met with two stylists at different salons before settling on SC. (Note about the receptionist: the same person who made my appointment for me a few days earlier couldn't find it in the system the day I showed up.) I settled on SC because the stylist, Daniel, impressed me in the initial consultation, despite the negative citysearch review by the lady whose color turned out poorly and she couldn't get her stylist to call her back. Daniel seemed to understand exactly what I wanted and what I didn't want. He also seemed confident and knowledgeable about color, cuts and his products (the salon carried Redken). My hair is naturally dirty blonde and I have been getting foil highlights for years, but I was looking for a more dramatic, all-over effect and a warmer, more buttery blonde color. I also wanted to get more layers put into my waist-lengt thick hair, to take off some of the weight. Daniel had a very different technique for applying color than my old stylist, but I trusted that he knew was he was doing and that it was going to turn my highlights into a Sienna Miller-type blonde. He applied two products. Once my hair was washed, he did my cut, but insisted on using a razor instead of scissors. At the end, my cut appeared the same as it was before, just frizzier. My color seemed to have darker streaks in it but Daniel assured me that it was my natural color coming through. When I came home, I realized it was not only not my natural color but it was brassy, reddish and unflattering to my face. He had put in lowlights, without me asking for them. He gave me Redken shampoo, which,despite all his promises was awful and dried out my hair beyond belief. And it cost $15 for a 10 oz bottle! I called and left messages on three seperate occasions over the course of 4 days. My calls were unreturned.The receptionist accused me of no showing for two appointments, which never happened, because I was never called back. I took my business elsewhere. Pros: Stylish space, trendy atmosphere Cons: overpriced for what you get, terrible customer service, awful hair products! more

I love this salon! 7/13/2006

I have been going to this SOuth Tampa salon for nearly 2 years now, and I love it. My hair looks fabulous each time! My stylist knows her stuff and is extreamly professional! Every person in this salon amkes you feel like a VIP....I highly recommend it! Pros: Trained Stylists, friendly staff, priced right more

No Customer Value 2/3/2006

After my stylist was done I mentioned that some highlights looked a bit green. She told me it was the lighting and I should go home and see how I liked it. I called the next day to ask if my hair could be fixed because it looked horrible. I was told my stylist would call me to discuss the matter and set up a time to come back in to fix it. I never received a call. I paid $200 for a cut and color that the salon would not rectify. Also the fuse kept blowing while the styling was done. It is awful to have to stop and go with the process. Cons: Expensive, Does not fix mistakes, Fuses blow constantly more
