Finally Found a Great Stylist (Yvette)!!!! – I've been searching for a new stylist for a couple of years after my stylist for 6+ years stopped working to start a family. I have been to at least 6 different salons during this time ranging from medium to high-end in both price and accommodations, and could not find a stylist I was satisfied with until I found Yvette at Preston Salon!!! I spent a few minutes in the beginning describing to her the type of cut and color I was looking for and she far exceeded my expectations. The end result was fabulous. I could tell from the moment she started handling my hair that she knew what she was doing and knew what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back, and would recommend her to anyone.
Hair cut good , Atmosphere not. – I recently moved to the area and decided to try Prestons after visiting their website. When I first arrived my impression was that it seemed outdated , dirty , and very crammed . After waiting for around 15-20 minutes I was finally taken to a chair, which probably is about average but I just was already at the point where I was feeling inconfident in the place . The young girl who washed my hair seemed friendly enough but was lacking appropriate clothing for her build and looked like she was maybe dressed for a night out with friends rather than work . Although , after seeing all of the other female stylists in there that seemed to be about the norm . I had a male stylist cannot (cannot remember the name) who I felt did a good job and is the only reason I would return , loved the cut ! My reason for giving the place 3 stars is that the place felt like it needed an update and the staff felt unprofessional .
My advice for this salon would be to update the place and do some major re-decorating . I'd also possibly recommend enforcing a dress code because the girls look to be more like over weight street walkers rather than professionals , nothing like the salon I went to in Arizona where they wore all solid color blouses and slacks . I am a middle aged women and find it offensive seeing bulges and spillage through a young ladies tights.
Bottom line ... Will I return? Possibly . Will I recommend ? Most likely not.
Love My Hair – I changed salons because I needed to find something a little closer. Boy did I hit the jackpot! I met Steven and he gave me the best haircut I have ever had. He was so great at showing me the products that would make my hair more manageable and even took the time to teach me how to style it. I will always go to Preston for all my beauty needs! Plus, I felt like every one there was very nice and helpful. I highly recommend Preston Salon!
Jene is a color goddess! – I'd been going to the same stylist for years and wasn't happy. A friend recommended Jene at Preston's for color. I'm so happy with the results! I can tell you I will never get my hair done anywhere else.
Ann is amazing! – I have been going to Preston for 5 years and I love Ann! She is knowledgeable about her craft and she always makes fantastic recommendations on how to keep my hair looking healthy and in-style. My highlights always look very natural!
Sorta Good – I tried the Preston Salon based on a Groupon I had for a Shellac manicure and regular pedicure.
I found making an appointment strange as I had to give them the Groupon number to confirm it, however I didn't think too much of it as they have probably had a few clients not keep appointments.
When I got to the salon I noticed it was well kept, if not a bit outdated. While I was filling out the new customer card one of the stylists was complaining about the pain from her black eye while another offered her Oxycontin. No one seemed to feel this was out of place.
My nail tech, Vickie, was very sweet and seemed to know the Shellac product well. I had Shellac on my nails when I went in, and they charged me a $10 "soak-off fee". ( For those who don't know, Shellac is removed by soaking your nails in acetone for 10 minutes). I've never been charged for this service at ANY salon I've been to before.
I've had Shellac on my nails about a dozen times and this is the first time I've had problems with the application. I don't think it was due to Vickie, but to old base/polish/top coat. These problems caused the application to take twice as long as normal. The reason I don't think it was due to Vickie is that she was able to correct it and did a great job on my pedicure.
Upon leaving they gave me a bag filled with coupons and a small sample of shampoo.
All in all, the experience was saved due to Vickie's upbeat personality, but I cant recommend this salon due to their ludicrous soak-off fees and old product.
Jene! Rocks! – I was looking for a new salon closer to my house. I decided to check out Preston Salon. What a great decision it was. Everyone was very professional. Jene took a few minutes to really think about what she wanted to do with my hair. I just let her do her thing...and I was not disappointed. My hair looks the best it ever has! The colors Jene used along with her creativity really gave me a WOW look! Not only is Jene an artist, she is sweet and lovely. I love my hair...and I will be seeing her again soon.
OK Salon – My friend and I both got our nails done with Vicky. She did a great job and was very friendly. She made us feel very comfortable. Some of the staff seemed a little uppity and snobbish like they were too good to talk to you, especially the workers in the reception area. We were thinking of going back for Keratin treatment, which they stated was normally $350, but they would give it to us for $300, making it sound like a deal, which it really wasn't. Depending on your hair length, you can get keratin for $250 at other places. I went to Glow and got it for $300, but also got a full size bottle of the shampoo and conditioner you are to use after you get the treatment for free, which is like a $75 value. All in all this place is ok, but I've been to better places with more reasonable prices.
Most fun I've had at a Salon....EVER!!!! – I have been in St. Louis all my life and have been to several salons, but this was the most fun (and it has nothing to do with wine...honest) I have had in years. From when I first walked in to Vicki offering a handshake to my relaxing pedicure it was heaven. Then after establishing a quick friendship she introduced me to Jaye (the stylist) who offered to stay after hours in order to style my hair for a "very special" date. I just can't wait until my appointment tonight to see what he has in store.
Seriously.....run don't walk to Preston Salon. It is so worth every penny!!!
BEST SALON EXPERIENCE IN ST. LOUIS!! – I moved to St Louis about a year ago and had been trying to find a hairdresser, but i couldent find anyone to cut my hair exactly the way i liked it untill i visited preston's. Everyone at the salon was very welcoming and professional, my stylist(Nicholas) understood exactly how i like my hair styled. I cant wait for my next haircut!
