  1. Disappointing experience at Carlton Hair, Rosebank, with Nikki Spagnoio. After having visited twice before, and having spent almost R6000 in a period of about two months, I went in for a full package treatment which included colour and or highlights, cut , blowdry as well a bondplex treatment. We discussed a full colour as well as highlights for the full package at the previous appointment as well as a haircut or hairstyle. Nikki was extremely negative about a full colour and highlights and insisted on doing roots only. As I had a Brazilian done at the last appointment, my hair had lightened quite bit, and a full colour was required in order for the hair to look evenly coloured. I also wanted a change of hairstyle, as I had just trimmed my hair previously and conveyed this to her, she insisted on a dry trim which doesn’t work for me as I have a slight curl in my hair and went ahead with it, leaving
    me with an uneven trim and no change of style. I was disheartened at her negativity as a senior stylist and further discovered just how uneven both the colour and cut was when my friends and colleagues commented. I called her up the next day to say how unhappy I was and wanted it fixed,again, she brushed me off by saying I should give it a few washes. So I was sitting with really dark hair at the roots which I emphasized I did not want, and a much lighter colour on the rest of the hair.I came in twice thereafter but she still refused to do a full colour even though I paid for a full service package. I am happy to pay for what I want,but I want what I pay for. And Nikkis attitude as a senior stylist doesnt say much about Carlton Hair as an organization.

  2. I had the worst experience I’ve ever encountered at a hair salon! Mandela square carlton not sure what the stylist name was, all I know is she had such a bad attitude, she blowdryed my fringe first , she then saw I was sweating and said I see you sweating and I said yes because my hair is in my face. I’ve got thick hair and she did blowdry my hair properly I had waves in my hair and had to wash it because there was so much volume and it became bushy and sticky. The way she made me felt when I told her that hairdressers never blowdry the front of my hair first she had such a bad attitude as a customer I want to feel comfortable and if I don’t like the service I will definitely voice my opinion as I’m paying. This stylist basically went on like she’s doing me a favour. Highly pissed off and annoyed. #wastedmoney.

  3. recently had my hair done at the Cresta salon. I’ve been going there for years and have never had a problem with service. They have always had high standards and excellent talent. Have always been happy with my hair. However after returning after a year being in another country I went back to my usual stylist whose always done a great job. This time unfortunately was not the case. I sat with her telling her exactly what I would like done to my hair. As far as I knew we had an understanding after showing her a previous picture of work she did on my hair. Whilst sitting in the salon for 5 hours during this whole process which I found far too long then my usual visits I became quite worried when I was at the basin and my hair was bright yellow with some orange tones. She had to tone it twice and once complete and blow drying I was devastated at the result. Not only was my hair not the colour I wanted but I could tell that the ends were burnt and completely dead. I came in with healthy long hair which I spent a great deal of time getting it to that and I now have hair which is broken, brittle and falling out. As a hair stylist I would have expected her to know that whatever she planned to do to get my hair the way I wanted it that it needs to be in the best interest in the health of my hair. I will probably have to cut a great deal off now because of this. When confronting her about the concerns I had about my hair she became very defensive and wasnt the most willing to help fix it. She also told me that she did a colour correction on me and this is why my hair is like this and nothing can be done and I need to wait 2months. I never asked or was never told this prior to her doing my hair. I am greatly disappointed as I paid R2500 for this treatment to leave with damaged yellow hair. I do not expect this from a Salon group who I have always held in such high regard. I also don’t expect this service from a Senior stylist.
