I got my hair cut at Barbara Forgione Salon for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I got a Deva cut by Maggie and she was the sweetest. She was very knowledgeable and willing to share tips on how to take better care of my curls. I would deff go see her again, and I’d highly recommend this place!
I am so happy I found this salon. I have struggled with my kinky/uneven curl all my life until I met Barbara. I have been going to Barbara for my Yuko once a year for the past several years and all I can say is well worth the time and money. Her and her staff are amazing so I drive an hour to see them. Also, Jai is on point with his skin care knowledge and does a great job on my eyebrows!sit.
If you want color, Barbara is your girl! I went from dark brown to blonde and my hair WAS NOT DAMAGED! I continue to get my hair colored by Barbara. She’s a magician.
NICOLE is an amazing stylist, she gave me a diva cut and it has literally changed everything about my hair. My curls (that I had been relaxing for 17 years) came to life. My hair is SO much faster to do in the mornings, and it is so much healthier. The products she recommended for me have helped repair the damage I have done over the years. The salon was clean, all the girls were friendly, but I will DEFINITELY be returning for Nicole.
Been going here for years and never had a bad experience. Barbara is amazing at color, Maggie gives the best cuts of anyone I have ever used and Jay is amazing with skincare.
