Valerie is the best colorist (I've experienced) in town! – Valerie is the best colorist I've experienced in Rochester! I made the fatal error of trying to color at home, with a box off the drugstore shelf and made a mess of my head of hair. She fit me in that same day, and spent countless hours getting me back to "normal", which resulted in a beautiful, natural blend of colors that gave me the exact look I wanted. The price is very reasonable as well. I will definitely be going back and urge others to stop by for a visit if you want a new look or are looking for a change in stylist!
FANTASTIC HAIR SALON! JUST THE BEST – Today I had my first visit to this cozy and artistic salon. It most certainly won't be my last. I am hooked! I got a fantastic haircut ( I look soooooo good) and great new color. I feel like a million.!!
I read the rave reviews on this site and decided to go and check it out. The bad reviews seemed a little snide to me and should be ignored. Everyone was courteous and tried very hard to please.
All in all A-1 experience! Go There!
Terrible highlights ruined my hair. – I walked into hirsute with very dark hair and copper highlights. I showed the owner a photo of the highlight color I wanted. He said "That is similar to what you already have." I said, "Yes". I walked out with blond highlights. All the way home I kept thinking maybe it is just a shade lighter that what I was use to or maybe it was the lighting in the salon. When I got home my husband said, "Hey your blond".
The owner walked by when the stylist was drying my hair and said, "The color looks good". He never asked how I like the color. The stylist asked how I liked it and I said, "It looks blond". She said, "Yea it does".
I am so upset about the color I really can't comment on the cut at this point. I have had other good cuts in Rochester.
I tried this place based on the reviews on this web site. Since my experience at hirsute I re-read some of the reviews and notice a number of them say, "The best cut or color ever ." I think employees and friends made these comments. I will NEVER GO HERE AGAIN.
Amazing Customer Service! – I went in to get a full highlight, and a cut. Valerie explained exactly what she was going to do and gave me the personalized attention needed when doing a drastic hair change, and was very reassuring. She gave me the BEST cut I've ever had in my life, and the ease she did it with was astounding! She was very careful not to damage my hair anymore than was necessary with bleaching, etc, which I was truly grateful for! The prices are extremely reasonable, in my opinion, and anyone who thinks they are overpriced should think about what is more worth it; a $5 latte from Starbuck's every morning, or YOUR HAIR, which makes of breaks ya! ;) Take it from someone who's been cheap with their hair and suffered for it, (ultimately having to pay more), GO TO HIRSUTE!! ^_^
Great haircut – Been going to Hirsute for 12 years. Love the time he spends with me when I get bored with my hair! Have also had my hair colored for 12 years and it always looks great. Can't go wrong making an appointment here.
Anyone who has ever worked there is fanstatic. Jimmy has a very clear idea of what he wants his clients to experience, so he is very choosy in hiring anyone that works in the salon. To quote Frank Sinatra "If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere". Thanks to Tracy for her patience in showing me how to use products in my hair.
Dissappointed – I have loved this place for three years now and went last weekend to get a haircut, I was 15 minutes late to the appointment and I did call in to let them know. Jimmy always knows what I need but this time my bangs are a disaster because they look as if I snipped them off with a saw and the reason I didn't notice it at the salon was because his assistant was a sweetheart to set the straightener on after she dried my hair so he could straighten my bangs because I was going out after but he said he couldn't do it since he didn't want the next customer to be waiting!! I mean I completely understand and apologized that I was late but I have been there many times to at least have him do me that favor and it would have taken just a minute. I am a student so I don't have a car and I can't afford to pay the cab to drop by to have him look at it and what can he do even after he looks at it, I mean my bangs are SO short! So yeah now I am stuck with short, messed up and ugly bangs (that I can't even pin up because they are shorter than I had asked them to be), enjoy your first visit and don't forget to get some cash because they don't accept credit cards!!! And yeah go if this is your first visit because after that I feel he just takes it for granted that you will show up next time too so he doesn't try!
Great Salon!! – Really enjoyed getting my haircut this past weekend at Hirsute Salon. this was my first visit in but definetely not my last. my hair looks great, easy to maintain so far and my experience there was enjoyable. nice to see that good customer service still exists..highly recommended.
Finally!! – WOW!! FINALLY!! After getting my hair butchered all over town I finally found a place where they know what theyre doing...Halleluhah!!
Nice Salon – Got another nice haircut from this salon over the weekend. This was my 3rd visit. I like that Jimmy seems to enjoy creating new haircuts upon each visit. Received many compliments at work on my new cut..Staff seemed to work as a team and I felt pampered.
Love this place..going back! – Valerie just started at Hirsute and she is great. With 8 years experience, she made me feel fabulous! This salon is so comfortable and cool, without being too edgy. The building is my favorite in Rochester, the "flatiron" where you will also find Edible's and Starry Nights! Everyone is so nice. I love that I can have my eyebrow waxing done at the same place as my cut and color, and Valerie does it all! I can't wait to go see the new artwork at my next appointment! See you there! And tell your friends!
