All reviews seem positive

Always a great experience 11/23/2010

I'm new to Durham and found the Garden Salon through Citysearch. The reviews were great and it was conviently located so I gave it a try. It's always scary to find a new stylist but I have been so happy here. Kristen has been doing my hair for awhile now and she has never let me down. In fact, I'm delighted with the way she cuts and styles my fine limp hair. It looks full and sassy now! I also love being able to schedule my own appointments on line - how convienent. And all of the amenities at the salon from the drink they offer you when you enter to the pampering until the moment you leave. I highly recommend this salon. Enjoy! more

Excellent Hair Salon 10/28/2010

I highly recommend the Garden Salon. The stylists are skilled, they use great products, the prices are reasonable and the scheduling is easy. I think their customer service skills are the best I've ever come across in a salon. The women who schedule the appointments are so genuinely nice. I have been a client for over a year and I won't go anywhere else. They are really great about educating you about how to style your hair yourself. I always leave there feeling gorgeous. more

Erin is great! 1/28/2010

I got a really great, trendy cut with Erin several months ago before my best friend's wedding. It really looked wonderful. You can tell when a hair stylist knows how to cut hair when your cut can begin to grow out and still look great. Unfortunately, being totally lazy on my part, I got a hair cut recently from another place, which was just not as good as at The Garden Salon. I'll definitely be making the drive back to Durham for Erin's work! Pros: Great haircut, very trendy Cons: Tad expensive, but worth it I think more

Going long to short? Ask for Brittney! 1/19/2010

Got my hair chopped off and love love love it! Sometimes a dramatic change is difficult, but Brittney did an amazing job. I just gave her a picture of a haircut I liked and she made it work for me!!! This was my first time getting my hair cut by her too. Pros: LOVE my haircut more

Brazilian Keratin Straightening Treatment 12/15/2009

I have been a customer at the Garden Salon for 2 years now and have always loved the services that I have gotten and my stylist Kellie! Recently the salon has started to offer the new Brazilian Keratin Straightening Treatment that I have been dying to try! My stylist Kellie had it done to her hair with great results so I decided to give it a chance. I had always been turned off by other straightening treatments because they are so damaging to hair and you have to keep up with your growing out roots. I got this keratin treatment done last week and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! It is a little on the expensive side but worth every penny! I have LOTS of hair that is coarse and curly with a frizz to it. When I did blow my hair out straight it would take me a good hour at least if I hurried, usually an hour and a half normally. I washed my hair today for the first time since getting the treatment (you can't wash your hair or do anything with it for 4 days after the treatment to let the keratin set it) and it only took me 15 minutes to dry and pass a straightener thought it a couple of times. My hair is smooth and the softest it has ever been! The keratin washes out so I will never have to keep up with my roots! The results are amazing and Kellie wasn't lying that I would love it! I recommend this treatment to anyone with hair that is hard to manage, curly or frizzy. It's the best and I wish I had done it sooner! Pros: Great service, Great prices more

New Address: 2608 Erwin Rd, Durham 27705 11/20/2009

The Garden Salon is great. Shea cuts my hair and does a great job and is always fun to talk with. Also, the new location is really nice. It's on Erwin Rd near Duke hospital next to the TGI Fridays. If you haven't been before give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Oh, and for full disclosure: Shea's my wife. ; ) Also make sure that you have the new address: 2608 Erwin Rd, Durham 27705. Citysearch can't seem to get the address right (we've begged them to fix this for almost a year). Pros: Fun place more

great haircuts & great price 11/11/2009

I love the Garden (although they have seince moved, to Erwin Rd by TGI Friday's). Erin cuts my hair and she rocks. more

Great Cut! 8/1/2009

I recently moved to town, and have been seeking a new stylist. I saw the Garden Salons' website, thought it looked nice and decided to check it out. I called and was able to get an appointment with-in a few hours. Justina was great and helped me to understand how my hair would look its best, and gave me great styling tips!!! I LOVE my hair and i loved the upbeat atmosphere of the girly pink salon! I will definately be back! more


Kate Allen is an OUTSTANDING hair care professional. Pros: KATE WAS THE BEST STYLIST I HAVE EVER BEEN TO more

I always love my hair! 4/20/2009

I've been driving from Raleigh for over a year to have Shea cut and color my hair. She's not afraid to give suggestions when I don't know what I want. I love change and she makes sure each hair-cut is different. She's the best! Pros: Great place, great prices, love Shea! more


The Garden is by far the best, trendy, hip secret kept in the area. Having had my hair done almost everywhere in major cities, The Garden is by far the best experience you will have with hair styling, cut and color. Shea, the owner, is unbelievably talented and is such a cool person. You wish that she was one of your friends. Erin is also fantastic as well. I have enjoyed going to the both of them - they are gems in Durham! If you want a hip and classy look, The Garden is the place to go. Pros: Always on the cutting edge with color and cuts - great staff more

BEST haircuts, BEST color and FANTASTIC prices 3/24/2007

I found the Garden salon a few months ago after living in Durham for 4 years. I've gone to see Kellie three times now and every time she's done an absolutely incredible job. I have thick, curly hair and she's been the first hairdresser who's really listened to me; she literally gave me the haircut I've always wanted. She's colored it twice and is very meticulous about giving good color and taking care of your hair. (She also straightens it for me at the end of every session which a lot of salons don't do). Best of all their prices are relatively low - I've paid twice as much at the Aveda salon on 9th street, for not nearly as good of a job. It's a very relaxed, low-key environment which is a pleasant change from most high-quality salons - highly recommended! Pros: relaxed environment, good prices, really talented/friendly staff Cons: parking can be annoying (lots of construction in downtown durham) more

Hip, funky, world-class but still affordable Durham Salon! 3/16/2007

I have lived all over the country and have been in the Triangle 4 years - I have tried EVERY recommended salon, Aveda, ""trendy"", ""hip"", most expensive and I found the trendiest, fun, pink, affordable, salon in Durham - the Garden. Shannon is new - she is a ""big city"" stylist gracing us in the south. She gave me the best color I've had in years. She was fun, hip, genuine - the salon is reasonable and the owner supports the revitalization of Downtown Durham. Smart, sophisticated, fun - book an appt. with Shannon before SHE books up! Pros: Great atmosphere Cons: A drive if you don't live in Durham more

Great Salon 3/16/2007

The Garden Salon is excellent. When I moved to Durham I didn't know where to go for a great haircut. I am so glad I chose Garden Salon. I am always skeptical when choosing a salon because I rarely recieve the cut/color/ etc that I actually asked for. But Erin did an amazing job - she gave me exactly what I asked for. She pays a lot of attention to detail and kept working at it until my hair was perfect! The atmosphere is great as well, and the location downtown is quite convenient. I highly recommend this salon - ask for Erin, she is wonderful! more

Best haircut for naturally-curly hair, hip location, personable stylists, affordable 8/1/2006

Durham's The Garden Salon is the only salon that I will ever go to in the area. I have looked high and low for a trusted stylist to work with my naturally curly hair and have found it in Kellie Gates. (She even beats the stylist I had when I lived in New York City!) Location is about as hip as you can get (right-dab in the middle of downtown Durham where a mini-Soho in NC is emerging), prices are affordable (student discounts available), there is always incredible local art hanging on the walls, and everyone who works there is confident in their style and humble in their heart. And did I mention Kellie Gates? Get yourself to the Garden! Pros: open Saturdays and evenings, involved in community events more

Wish I could find a salon like this in Atlanta! 4/6/2005

Erin is a great stylist! I recently moved away from the Triangle & REALLY miss my haircuts @ The Garden. Before my move, I was getting my short hair cut by Erin every 3ish weeks. Each cut was a little different from the last but I always loved ALL of them. Great value too! Pros: Great stylist, Nice salon more
