High end, low end, any good stylist knows not to put foils under a dryer. Call trendsetters where many of the stylists went to sxhool.......

WOW, I could not help not to pass this by. I am
amazed that you have this much time in your life to degrade a salon while your daughter has cancer!
I don't think anyone on earth would take a child's cancer lightly!!!! I think you are so upset that maybe you feel that way!
I happen to get my hair done there and have NEVER been to a salon where they don't put my foils under the dryer!!! They are not out to damage your hair and anyone that reads this who knows, a flat iron ONE time will NOT make your hair feel like STRAW!!! Give up your anger and go to a different salon! You weren't happy! So be it!
Have you ever thought it was the clarifier you were using? If you weren't happy with it the next day you should have talk to your stylist!! I go to a GREAT STYLIST there and it angers me that you degrade the salon she is in! hopefully you will read this and have some eye openers! p.s I really do feel compasion for your daughter may god bless her!
holy moly

wow, this has been an interesting conversation on here. I recently went to blondberry for the first time. I thought it was a great place, the people were very nice and for the most part I had a very nice experience.... until the dye in my hair only lasted about 3 days. I ended up going back a few times to get it "fixed" and I am still not happy with it. I found them very nice and wonderfully spirited....however, i dont know if the lighting was bad or what, but I dont know how you can let someone walk out of the salon 3 times with hair that is NOT how it is supposed to look. I got all of my hair dyed 3 shades lighter than it was...and a strip of hair dyed pink. the pink is what would NOT stay in my hair. so when i went the last time, i just had them dye it the brown of the rest of my hair...well, now i have this very light brown streak (which was very faded pink) mixed with my darker brown hair. i have to say I try to hide it, but its going to be like this for a LONG time. thanks for that blondeberry

really women? or should I say children? Its not the salon itself, it was probably the stylist. and if you don't like the salon... go somewhere else. stop degrading. get a life.

Ah all of yous shut the hell up with your 3rd grade education on hairstyling. Blonde Berry sucks and if you get your hair done there it probably looks like shit.

I'm currently at Camp Taji, Iraq and my Mom's birthday is coming up on July 26th. I know that Blondeberry is one of her favorite salons and I'd like to purchase a gift certificate for her. I've looked everywhere for an email address (or a website) and this thread is the closest thing I've found... It seems that a few of you know the owner, is there any way you can respond to this thread with an email point of contact?

I live in Florida (when I'm not in Iraq lol) and the last time I was home for a visit my Mother treated me to an extended wash and haircut at Blondeberry. I enjoyed the experience and have no complaints. I'm counting down the days until I return to the States and have the luxury of going to a salon again... over here the women don't even have the chance to have a "bad salon experience". There are no salons, and they have no real reason to get their hair done- considering their heads and faces are covered at all times, women aren't allowed to work (even if they did have a salon) and certainly aren't allowed to own businesses. When put in perspective, even the worst day at a salon in the States would be a blessing to some women around the world.(In regards to the other comments in this thread). I think we, as women, should celebrate being women, celebrate how far we've come and help other women who are (intentionally or otherwise) displaying their weaknesses. I wasn't at the salon the day of "Mom of 2 with an opinion" was there, so I can't comment on the actual experience itself... but in general happy people act happy and treat others well- unhappy people do the opposite. On both sides what a difference would be made if one woman noticed the unhappiness in the other and instead of getting angry tried to bring a ray of sunshine into the other persons day. A smile can make all the difference. Thanks for reading... I'd be very thankful if someone could write back with a contact email address for Blondberry.

Very bad. I asked for curl definition and wound up with a generic Victoria Beckham style bob. Haircut was not explained well. I left extremely disappointed.

This salon rates "0" in my book and I have spread the word as well as the crappy cut and dryness this salon left my to walk around with. I had the same issue with the flat iron (btw my hair is pin straight) the stylist (Natalie) went over my hair till it was smoking! I asked to her to stop and all I got was her slamming down her iron and rudely saying "I guess were done then" and ripped the cape off me leaving my neck red! The owner had same attitude and said nothing to her .. This place needs an adjustment. I have found a polite and respectable salon that I will gladly give my money to.

I had my haircut at Blonde Berry yesterday the cut was ok but the stylist was a little to blunt for me. As she was cutting my hair she was making remarks like "you have a lot of hair for someone your age" and "you would like this hairstyle because of your age" I just hope she thinks about such things when she becomes That Age. I was feeling pretty low as I left the salon. Not sure if I'm returning again Thank you SARAH for reminding me of my age.

I agree with you completely, especially regarding the part where you explained that a smile from a stranger can make someone's bad day better, but, and this is a big but, a bad experience at a salon is a bad one. A bad experience can be a rude stylist or bad results among the many other things that can happen to contribute to the unhappy customer. Just because women on the other side of the world don't even get to experience the displeasure of a bad salon doesn't mean that the person complaining doesn't have the right to voice their opinion. We don't live in those conditions. That being said it can also boil down to people complaining about the smallest things that aren't even a big deal. It takes a pretty bold situation to get me upset, but if my stylist was like some of the ones that I read about in this thread I would be a dissatisfied customer too.

As for the kind acts of strangers I think more people should do the same. If you are having a great day it will shine through so a friendly conversation, or just a hello sometimes does make someone's bad day not so bad.
