Heartbroken, at least for a while..
I was in search of the best experience possible: a local salon with the highest standards for purity and safety in their products with experienced, inspired stylists. For the first criteria, Hair Habitat is in a league of its own and Syracuse is better for it.
Unfortunately, the cut I was given doesn't suit my thick, fine, straight-ish locks. It was all about cutting the length then attempting to make it behave under a half-hour blow out.
After expressing my disappointment, I was amazed at how quickly -- and earnestly -- the salon manager followed up to try to make things better. For this alone, I would support this salon. They really do care how you feel when it's just you and your hair days later.
Best Hair Salon in Syracuse.
What do I love about Hair Habitat?
A GREAT CUT: All the staff at Hair Habitat are friendly and talented. They keep in step with current trends in hair cuts and styles, but give me a look that suits me and my lifestyle. People often stop to ask me where I get mine cut.
GREAT COLOR: Whether it's highlights or covering a little gray, I trust them completely with my hair color. They never let me down. The color is always natural and lush. Let's face it, nothing is worse than bad color.
LOCATION: The downtown location gives me an excuse to stop by Strong Hearts Cafe or buy some French feta from Samir's Middle Eastern store. It's also incredibly convenient from the university.
ORGANIC PRODUCTS: Organic product lines and hair color make me feel great. No nasty chemicals, please.
AMBIENCE: The salon is relaxing, lovely and comfortable. The magazines are the best. I always get a chance to catch up on fashion and gossip.
TRUST: Even my most discerning friends trust Hair Habitat with their locks, and their look.
No better place!.
The first time I walked into Hair Habitat, I thought - it actually smells good in here! No chemical smell, no nasty bleach or perm smell....just nice. I love their little touches - tea for customers, an eclectic, but inviting waiting room, and natural products. The best part of Hair Habitat - is Maria. She does an amazing job with my hair and I always feel so good when I walk out of there. My hair is now naturally highlighted and I always love the cut. She is honest with me about what will work with my hair type and face shape and I always get compliments. I've finally found a place I can stick with...thank you Hair Habitat!
