GREAT style from Riz Rios – OMG! I just had the most A-MAY-ZING cut/blowout at ENVY! Most stylists find my hair a challenge: it is baby-fine with a wicked cowlick in front that I have to straighten into submission every day in order to wear my lash-grazing bangs. Even though I always take a picture with me when I try a new stylist, my hair has never turned out quite right, and the stylist tries to talk me into the same old chin length bob that has ben kicking around for decades--YUCK!
Not so with Riz! I sat down in his chair and instead of rushing to get started, he actually *listened* to what I wanted, asked a few questions, and didn't bat an eye at the challenges my hair presents.
I was quite impressed with the care Riz took with my cut; he made certain every aspect of my cut was just right. After he finished blow-drying, I was amazed how pretty he had made my hair look! He even went back in for a few style-perfecting snips once he saw how my dry hair would lay.
I must say, I have have NEVER left a salon this satisfied with my look! I've also never had other clients walk up to the desk while I was paying just to ask who did my hair. One woman booked her own appointment with Riz right on the spot!
Needless to say, I'll return again and again, for results like this.
Dissapointed – You know when a friends hair looks good after a cut and color, you get a case of where did you get your hair done-itis..and think to yourself -I have to go there.. well I asked who did her hair and she mentioned Envy on Mineral.. I was like Really?? I havent really heard too many things about the Salon recently.. back in the day it was the place to be.. So I looked up the website and saw alot of changes on the website, and I decided to go to City search and look them up to see what other ladies had to say, the company profile, who the stylist where, etc.....and all good from what I can see... Until I made the call.. I got some miserable woman on the phone, I asked for one of the stylist that was on the website, I was THEN told they all no longer are with the company..and I was like why are they still on the website, isnt that false advertising?? Well the woman went on to tell me that she was just as good and I could walk in or make an appointment with her... Really what does just as Good mean?? Does it mean I might walk out of there with partially blue hair... I am dissapointed... if anyone knows of a good salon..can you let me know?
Michelle means great service from a great stylist! – My stylist Michelle is GREAT at what she does. She has been doing my hair for over 3 years and always keeps me looking fresh and in up to date styles. Michelle makes time when i need her without notice and always with a smile on her face. The 30 min trip each way was worth it to get her quality work, but I am so glad she is now in RI. Call and ask for Michelle today and you will leave loving her work as much as I do...
I visited Envy for the first time . The salon's owner is a really nice, accomodating woman. The overall experience was quite pleasant, and I will be back. Thanks!
Great Service – I went to Krissy for a blow out for the first time yesterday after being referred by a friend, she did an excellent job. She made me feel comfortable and I will be going back.
Krissi is a wonderful young woman and an extremely talented stylist!. Thank you for your patronage!
Envy Salon – Fabulous Mani/Pedi/facial/Massages/knowledgable staff!
Nicole G – Nicole, Is the best hairdresser! If I had a dollar every time someone asked me who cuts my hair, I would be getting my yearly salon services for free. Nicole is excellent at cutting hair and she really likes her job and you can tell by the end results. I am never frustrated when fixing my hair myself because she cuts it so well it just makes my job easy. My only regret is the salon is about 1 hr away from my house. However, it is so worth the trip!!! Everyone at the salon is so nice , friendly, and helpful. Every time I get my hair foiled, cut ,or styled Nicole continues to amaze me and my friends and people I don't even know complement my hair daily. BRAVO Nicole!!! Thanks so much Michelle Bagley
Thank you Michelle! We are proud know you as one of our long-time clients! There is a wide variety of salons from which to choose and we appreciate you choosing Envy Salon!
Lynn De Carlo is OUTSTANDING!! – Lynn de Carlo is absolutely out of this world! I followed her to the Envy salon from the place she worked before. I fell in love with her after our first encounter …that was a while ago. I had my own hairstylist that was very good; I was satisfied but not thrilled. I always thought that amazing haircuts/styles are only for the Hollywood people, there are certain hairstylists that go to certain schools….…I always wanted a red carped hairstyle, where every strand is perfectly trimmed , colored, styled and in the right place.
I met/tried soooooooo many hairstylists until now, but she is by far the BEST one. Lynn De Carlo is the whole package- not only she does amazing haircuts /hairstyles but she is a perfectionist that would not let a strand escape her brush until is not PERFECT, no matter the time it takes. All this would not be possible without the passion she has for what she is doing and her continuous hard work to learn and keep herself updated with everything that is new in the hair fashion world. I noticed that only very smart people are studying continuously, this being one of the reasons they are so smart and she is one of them. I never saw a hairstylist that goes to so many courses and reads so much about her job. This is one of the many things that make her stand out of the pool of stylists.
More than that, you enjoy being in her chair: she knows how to make you feel important; you are treated like you are the center of the universe; she always takes the time to listen what you say and makes sure she understands exactly what you are looking for/ or that what she did was what you wanted.. Usually, you get what you wanted and a little bit extra! She always makes the effort to give you the perfect experience.
By all means, she is a perfectionist in the good sense! In her hands your hair is treated with respect and professionalisms, even more, you hair becomes an ongoing project for her. She will individualize the shampoo/conditioner depending on your needs at that particular moment (dry-scaly scalp, dull/tired color or just a itchy scaly spot).
Let’s face it: all hairs look better after a shampoo and a trim: but only a perfect trim, color and styling would make your hair stand out and make you feel so much better about yourself. Even though I’ve known her for a long time, I continue to be impressed with her tireless attention to detail and desire to make you happy.
You will never regret you had this experience with her, because having anything done by Lynn is a beautiful experience with a beautiful human being. Enjoy the journey!
Nicole G. – I love Nicole, from day one. I get stopped daily and asked where I get my hair done. I have even had people take pictures of my hair. Even when my bangs are too long people still think my hair is gorgous, thanks to Nicole. I always tell people about the wonderful services provided by Envy and fantastic staff. Everyone is great/ Nicole is young, and knows what in style and can basically read your mind.
To have strangers stop to compliment your hair or take a picture is a terrific experience! Our goal is for all our clients to leave looking and feeling gorgeous! Thank you!
