Great place. Great service. – I have been a client of Sacha's for several years. I was referred by a friend years ago and I have been going there ever since. The salon is very clean and the staff is very knowledgeable and professional. They are constantly making updates to the services that they offer in order to keep up with any new hair trends. The main reason that I keep going back is because of the compliments that I am always getting on my hair cuts and color. I always leave the salon looking and feeling great. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Its where I send my friends and family.
You are in the best hands! – A salon, like all businesses, has an atmosphere created by the owners and employees. From Bill's beautiful fresh flower window boxes, to refreshments upon entering, Christiaan's is committed to top-notch customer service and client satisfaction. I am a way-beyond middle-aged woman with gray hair. Initially Sheri and currently Carol have served as my stylists and have not only accepted but in fact complimented me on my hair's naturalness. Their cutting and styling skills are exceptional; their manner with clients natural, relaxed and always fun. Quite simply, I adore them.
Then, to have your hands (or feet) in the hands of Olga, warm, funny, and the manicurist-pedicurist supreme, is another extraordinary experience. Once every two weeks, I visit Olga and leave with better looking hands and a huge smile on my face. Oh my, we do laugh a lot!
And when your face is in the hands of Tasha's competent and gentle hands, your day is complete! Whether massaging the daily stress away or doing an "archeological" dig on my pores, Tasha is terrific.
My review would not be complete without mention of all the other staff members who I have found to be friendly, professional, and who work dilligently to provide the best service to all clients.
I am a 100% fan of Christiaan Salon, with absolutely no reservations to all who read this review. Men too! They all look great when they leave!
friendly services, great ladies – Always leave satisfied with all services i have received at Christiaan Salon and Day Spa, I have been a client for several years now and will not go anywhere else. Worth the drive from Narragansett! I have had the pleasure of having my hair done by Rikki, Carol and Sasha when Laura was out and Since Laura left, Amanda has done a great job with color and cut. thanks Amanda! All the ladies at Christiaans are great. Olga is awesome at manicures and pedicures! thanks Olga! oh and I can't forget Tasha, she too is awesome at waxing eyebrows- she makes your eyebrows look natural, not too thin! And of course there is Alex, at the desk, friendly and always patient!!!
Worth an hour drive! – I drive in from Massachusetts every five weeks to have Sacha do my color and cut. It's well worth the hour drive! My hair has never looked better. The style holds up all day long. She knows how to cut hair so it grows out nicely and keeps its shape. My color always looks natural, and my hair is nice and healthy. I love Christiaan so much that my mother is now a customer. She drives in from Massachusetts, too! The cost of my cut and color is $95 without tip -- which is a lot less than the $120 without tip that I was paying in Massachusetts (and I'm not talking about Boston, which is much more). And I never found a salon in Massachusetts that consistently gave me a great cut and color like Sacha at Christiaan.
This salon is worth an hour on the road and the gas money. You wear your hair every day. Thanks to Christiaan, I never have a bad hair day anymore. 8-)
Nice salon with friendly atmosphere – This was my first visit to Christiaan. I have been going to a different salon but wasn't too impressed with the salon atmosphere, although the stylist is not bad. When I arrived, I had to wait for a minute because someone was being helped. But someone checked me in and offered me tea right away. Sacha came down to meet me for my hair cut right on time. She was very professional and friendly. I only had a haircut and style but I left Christiaan feeling very satisfied. Cost was a little bit more (not much) than what I used to pay but it was worth it. This is the longest my hair has been in years and she cut and layered quite a bit. I have thin, wavy hair and she blew it out curly beautifully. She informed me what products she used but didn't pressure to buy products. When asked, she also taught me how to blow it out straight. Thanks Sacha and Christiaan.
THE BEST PLACE IN TOWN!!! I LOVE THIS SALON I WOULD NEVER GO ANY WHERE ELSE.
This is the Worst salon that i went to – I got my japenese (permanent)Straightening at the Christiaan.Sacha is the hair stylist who did it. Please NEVER EVER get the hair straigtening at the salon.After the treatment I washed my hair and it turned back to curls.I called the salon and they said they are not ready to redo my hair and I need to everytime i wash my hair.This is completeley opposed to the meaning of permanent hair straightening.They charged me the premium rate than compared to boston downtown.
As with any hair service, the instructions must be followed at home for taking care of your hair. We would have gladly taken care of this client if she had returned for a free consultation.
The BEST – I have extremely thick, wavy/curly, nearly impossible hair to cut + style. I've been to every big expensive salon in New York and Miami and have never had as wonderful an experience as I did with Riki at Christiaan. She listened to my questions, worries, hair complaints, etc, and gave me the best haircut I have ever had. It is just as I have wanted it for years...I almost can't believe it. I created an account on Citysearch just to write a review for this salon. The second thrilling surprise was the price...I've paid three times what Riki charged at places like Bumble & Bumble, Woodley & Bunny, etc. for a cut that has gone up into a bun within hours of leaving the salon. I walked through a small wind storm after leaving the appointment and my hair STILL looks awesome. I could not be happier. She is a miracle worker!
Best Colorist in the City! – Recently while I was home for the summer I needed a haircut and color desperately! Riki Vieira came to my rescue. She is one of the newest additions to the already awesome cast at Christaan's. I never know what I want when I need to get my hair done. Enter Riki, you automatically know you're in good hands! She puts you at ease with her professionalism, and is just the person you want giving you the next look that hasn't even been in the magazines yet. She is forward thinking but also concerned with what would best work for you. She is by far the best colorist that has EVER touched my hair, she fixed the horrible blond chunks I had in my hair to sweet "peek a boo" pieces with a hint of lilac to them. She then proceeded to give me one of the newest TIGI hair cuts but tweaked it to my liking. (I have glasses so my fringe has to be cut a bit shorter.)
Riki has been cutting my hair for quite a few years now, I'd like to say I'd follow her wherever she goes, but I have a pretty cool job in Texas now. No one but Riki has managed to cut my hair the way I like it with little or no prompting. Beyond being intuitive to the customers needs she is also knows everything there is to know about all Tony and Guy products. She has never led me astray with whatever product she points me to.
Providence, you are very lucky to have Riki, if I could talk her into moving to Texas for me I would, but high school teachers generally don't have personal stylists!
REQUEST RIKI! She is the best. – It was my first time to the christiaan salon. I was a bit anxious about getting my hair cut. I had an appointment for a razor/scissor cut with Riki. She sat me down, we discussed what I needed. She worked diligently and confidantly. She has a great eye for detail and she knew exactly what cut I was looking for. Her techniques are very well thought out and show her dedication to her profession. She stayed focused on me and my cut through the duration. I am very impressed with Riki, and I know that anyone else who experiences a cut/color by her will feel the same.
Also, I loved the salon and the look. The girls who work in there were very down to earth and polite. The prices were extreamely reasonable especially for a stylist with the amount of talent and experience as Riki.
