I had my hair at Regis and I brought a photo of the haircut I always get. I told the stylist to trim only 1 inch. I ended up with very choppy, not blended hair that was cut off over 2 inches! It looked like when a young child attempts to cut their own hair. I returned the next day requesting another stylist to fix it and she ended up trimming my hair even more to try to remove the "shelves" and trimmed my bangs - which I had never had before - uneven where one side was 3/4 an inch longer! I returned the next day, receiving the run around and proceeded to a diff. salon in the mall where they did fix it the best they could with what they had to work with. In the end my hair is over 3 inches shorter and I have short bangs! I had to purchase a new curling iron since my barrel was too large for my new only 3 - 7 inches of choppy layers. I have NEVER had such a horrific haircut in my 30 years of professional stylists. As I am telling my story to other people, they have told me of their own bad experience with Regis Salons. While she was styling my hair some young man came in wanting a haircut. He specified to have the manager but was told she did not have time for a walk-in. He insisted on her so they told him to come back at 4:15. My color, cut, style and waxing began at 2:00. She finished at 3:45. I suspect she hurried so she would have time to trim this handsome young man whom many of the stylists apparently knew. My family will never use Regis again and I will tell my story to anyone willing to hear it. I have more faith in the abilities of a professional at Great Clips and the like than the unprofessional stylist and managers Regis employs.

I recently had my hair cut at Regis in Knoxville as well. Believe me, this will be the last visit i ever make to this "professional" salon. I walk-in and was told the wait would be 5-10 minutes. i agreed and sat and waited for 30 minutes. Once the stylist finally started on my haircut, it was obvious this girl was fresh out of school, an absolute mess. We ended up having to shave my head after the "manager" couldnt fix my hair. The place was dirty with hair in every crook and cranny, like they dont ever clean. I dont mind spending a little extra for a good hair cut however this salon is EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL.

WELL, you had my attention until you used the term "professional" at Great Clips. That means you work there and this is a shameless plug for the shop. Great Clips, it's OK with the $6.99 coupon. Walk-in, never the same staff there. Can't get the same person to cut my hair twice in a row. Turn over higher than Burger King. There is one really hot stylist there, Mid thirties, nice leg and butt. She was there Friday wearing a red dress. But other than that you can't depend on them. Have a nice day.

yeah. we've discussed all of this minimum wage/service industry topic before.

folks crack me up when they haul their primmadonna azzes into one of these type of businesses and expect the royal treatment in what amounts to a production facility, where they run em' through like cattle to the trough.

when someone gets on here and goes on and on with their whining, it's because they came in looking like this.....

Sorry about your hair experience, I've never been to Regis and don't plan on it. I have ONE salon and ONE stylist. If I am forced to go some place else (which is not very often) I wouldn't have so much work done on my first visit..maybe just a trim to see how they do. Hope your hair grows back quickly so you can get it fixed. Good luck to you.

I can't relate to Regis but I can relate due to JCPenney salon in Morristown. Chick who did my hair didn't know nothing but ASHY hair on the color wheel of haircolor. I am not an asher but rather a warm golden color person. Go to the makeup counters the first words out of their mouth is you are a golden skin tone. My story goes as long as she was doing to my roots and snipping my ends - all was well (my last stylist had got married and move out of state). In my quest to find later hours and flexible weekends - I chose JCPenney. Bad mistake! When it came time to 'turn her lose' with my cut and color oh my God. I would walk in a restaurant my friends would say why does your hair look green, sure enough I would go in the restroom and yes it was a greenish tone. I would walk in a department store and walk by a mirror and think oh God what color exactly is my hair. I tried to communicate with her but either I didn't speak English, she couldn't understand English or she just plain didn't want to hear nothing, it was her way or no way. Honestly she knew nothing about doing color outside of ASH on everyone. I noticed this the few remaining times I went to her. Everyone walked out looking greenish grayish - weird. One time I mentioned the technique I wanted my highlights done and her reply was I don't like that- I thought what is it to what you like, I'm the customer. She said she was a perfectionist but I came to realize she really didn't know anything about color and that was why her clients were always having to get toned and retoned over and over. She mentioned one time I come back in a few days and get a toner put on my hair again. I thought good lord get it right the first time and I have no intentions of sitting in a salon every few days or weeks, I have more important things going on in my life. Hair cut, let me just say, all she knew how to do was take those thinning texturizing scissors and whack hair till there was nothing left but stringy strings. I hate I wasted the times going to her that I did, she has my hair so messed up color wise and cut wise that I look like street corner trash - in other words I look like I've colored my hair myself and it 'went bad' and my cut looks like pure s***. The manager at the M'tn location needs to step to the side and stop being such a buddy with these unprofessional stylist. If she can't see chick is going to mess up more and more people over time, all I can say is when the biggy happens- I hope she steps up to the plate then.

Ok, I'm confused! She totally was a bitch and screwed your hair up. And you kept going back to her?!?!?!?!? Seems to me you're a dumb ass.

Don't give me your garff, smart ass know it all. It's people like you who know everything yet know nothing. Guess you failed to read the comment about as long as she was doing my roots and snipping the end thing- in other words as long as she was 'rooting' and 'snipping' someone else's work she was OK. But apparently once she got free reign to show her talent - well her talent started coming out. As it was said to me - talk to her and tell her you don't want ashy hair- did no results - she changed to a different shade of ashy. As far as the thinning shears she thinned and textured and point cutted over and over. We all give someone the benefit of the frigging doubt don't we, bet you're grand stylist has given you at least one bad cut and/or color maybe even more and you dragged sagged your tail back in there didn't you. So before you point your finger and call me something, get off your know it all tail and get a frigging job. Maybe YOU could go to beauty school and do hair for a living. Come to think about it I think I recall you posting on Morristown topix regarding a similar situation. If so I think you work at the great JCP salon don't you.

i'm thinkin' you should have had the end of your root, snipped a long time ago.

quit bytchin' about the results of a cheap haircut from a low dollar clip joint.

you sound like one of those fat spade bytches who calls 911 when the local mcdonalds gets their order wrong and the manager tells you to get lost while laughing uncontrollably as your waddlin' azz.

I remember my friend's hair being ruined at J C Penny's. She got a permanent and it burned her hair up,but that was a few years ago. Where is a good place for color/cuts around the Powell area? I would like to take my sister and get her's done for her Birthday.
