THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! – I just moved from NYC to Nashville and was very nervous about finding a new hair salon. I've been going to the same girl in NYC for years. A co-worker recommended True Blue Salon and I couldn't have been happier that she did.. I've been 3 times now and can honestly say I'm home! I've been to Kim and Brandy and they both ROCK. I love my hair and the scalp massages are sublime. The facial was the best I've ever had and all about half the price of my New York salon! Thank you True Blue!!!!
I LOVE THIS PLACE! – I've been twice to two different stylists and got a great cut/style each time. Can't go wrong with Aveda products. Can't wait to go back!
not made to feel welcome – One of the first things that drew me to the salon was the advertised promise of a scalp massage and makeup touch up with every cut. I was never, ever offered either. If not going to offer it, then remove it from the print advertisements.
On more than one occasion when inquiring about pricing, I was treated as if it was an annoyance (by the stylist) with a loud sigh and a 'let me see'. I feel the stylists and owner should have their prices down and should not hesitate to be forthcoming about said prices.
Once, when I noticed a spot after a highlight job and brought it to the attention of the stylist, she very rudely commanded me to 'look at her' and then said 'there is not a spot'. Which is basically challenging my opinion as a client and it goes back to the saying 'the customer is always right' . Well, they should be. But that was not the case here.
I observed other clients sometimes being offered samples, or receiving said head massage, or just being pampered in general but my experience was not that way at all. On more than one occasion, I was asked to hold an item (such as a foil) for a stylist, or to assist with brushing my hair. I feel that when I am dropping several hundred dollars or close to it - I would like to be pampered a bit and this is not the place to receive that, by my experience.
Furthermore, in regards to the work, the color was sloppy at times. I had more than one occasion where I had some spotting after getting highlights put in.
In general, I believe all salons could work on being more friendly. Really, having a snooty attitude doesn't give the impression of being upscale, it's just frustrating to the general public who will happily take their money elsewhere to find a place that will make them feel truly welcome. I could write more but I would summarize it by saying I was not made to feel overly welcome. If anything, I felt like i was a burden to the stylist.
So far True Blue is my favorite Nashville salon! – I just had my first experience at True Blue. I had been letting my hair grow out for about a year and decided it was time to bring the cute back. The receptionist suggested I see Graham. He did a great job! Especially since I didn't really know what I wanted and didn't really have a good shape to start with. I love my hair cut and have already gotten several compliments. The rest of the staff was very friendly as well. I will definitely be returning.
PS - The phone number listed on CitySearch is wrong. Its not 325 it's 329.
Best facial I have ever had! EVER!!! – I had a facial from Beth at True Blue Salon... and it was the best facial in Nashville! The front desk staff was very courteous and offered me the greatest Aveda tea while I filled out a skin questionaire. Then Beth came and introduced herself to me and showed me to her new room(after they have just expanded-beautiful!). She explained to me first steps: undress from the waist up, take off all jewelry, take off shoes and socks and "dont lie down yet, I will give you a hand treatment and wrap your feet while we talk about what you want to do today."
She dipped my hands in paraffin and wrapped my feet in damp hot towels before we started! Nothing I had ever experienced in a facial before, and such a wonderful start! The neck and shoulder massage may as well have been from a massage therapist! Top notch! Then she gave me a 20% buffered pumpkin glycolic peel that was absolutely fantastic! She explained to me the benefits of it and it has no down time! And my skin looked great immediately!
She was so informative and I bought some Aveda skin care products! The products are fantastic and I have never been so impressed with a facial in all my life! I have had facials before and felt like it seemed as if it were just slapping product on my face and thats it.. but this was true skin care and true pampering!
Beth gets 2 thumbs up! Thank you for a wondeful treat! I will be back!!!
Book Brandy. – I have been going to Brandy White at tru Blue for about 2 years and really like the way she cuts and colours my hair. We change it up a little everytime I go and I have am always really happy with the results. Infact I always like it even more after a coupe of weeks and the cuts do grow out well. Brandy is really versatile and has done my "wedding hair" which was blondey romantic curly updo, through to a dark 'euro" looking cut with blunt fringe etc, and lots inbetween.
When Brandy did my hair for my wedding, and I really loved it, had tonnes of compliments and recommend her to the max for your big day! My bridesmaids got their hair done there too by other stylist - their updo's were ok, but just ok. Everyone else probably thought they were great but I was the bride and was picky!
I had intended to get my makeup done there for my wedding but decided against it having had a rushed trial makeover.
Two of my friends also go to Brandy and love her. One of them recently tried to save some money by going to a barber school to get her colour done - then called brandy in a panic with YELLOW hair. So Brandy did a rescue operation that resulted in a great cut and colour, with no yellow in sight!
I am someone who is usually counting the pennies and going for the cheaper option, but I think Brandy is worth the cash, and she will work with you on your budget telling you what will last longer etc.
So, my words of wisdom - Book Brandy - IN ADVANCE!
For my 56th birthday, I had my hair cut at tru blu as a gift, my hair was down to my waist so I knew there was no way for a professional to screw it up. OH, but guess what, the stylist did not listen, my hair was very thick, I told him I wanted whispy bangs and layered to my shoulders, OMG, I was given a blunt, helmet head all one length, right below my ears haircut, it was awful, I looked like Rosanna Danna on Saturday night live, I have been so depressed over this mess, everything I told the stylist, SCOTT went in one ear and out the other, I want my money back, and the 20 dollar tip I gave Scott, and I would not let this man cut my dogs hair. I HATE THIS PLACE and would never recommend it.
I've had several facials at True Blue Salon by Beth Hunter and she is the best in Nashville! She is very knowledgeable of her trade and keeps up to date with all the new techniques. My skin and face feel and look their best after her treatment. The Aveda products she uses are top notch. I can't tell you how nice it feels to be pampered like that. She explains the different types of massages and creams and lotions she uses. I have bought several gift certificates for facials with Beth for my friends and they all love her and the products too! I try to go once a week and I get a lot of compliments on how good my skin looks. I can tell my wrinkles and lines have diminished since I've started going to True Blue and Beth. I recommend her to everybody! Part of her treatment is paraffin wax and massages to your hands. Heaven!
