Here's my experience: I was looking for an Aveda salon closer to me in FTW. I had been driving to Dallas for my cuts. When I made my appointment I identified myself as a new client, told the receptionist what I wanted ( short girl cut) and stated that I wanted someone experienced and good at short girl cuts. I was assured that the stylist was both. I arrived on time for my appointment, filled out a short questionaire, and waited for my stylist. I had been waiting for about 15-20min, when I was told that a different stylist would be cutting my hair. It was not a problem for me since I was new anyway.The new stylist was very nice, and did her best, and in all honesty, I can live with my cut. BUT, she was an UNSUPERVISED New Talent, cutting my hair with borrowed shears!
I have gone to other Aveda salons, and frequently use the New Talents. However, I specifically requested an experienced professional.
The stations are drab, kinda like dorm room modular particleboard furniture. None of the stations I saw are personalized in any way. Very cold and clinical feeling. There is no art anywhere on the walls, and none of the stylists talked to each other, much less even acted like they enjoyed their jobs.
After my cut, no one checked it to make sure it was a good cut before I walked out the door. There were many uneven parts, but as I stated earlier, I can live with it and hide the errors. I expected much more from an Aveda salon.
Will I return? If I want to use a less expensive New Talent, then yes, I will return. But if I want an experienced professional, I will go elsewhere.
I hope this helps.
good service. I got a gift certificate for a hair cut to Moda. The lady was really nice and asked lots of questions before getting started on my hair to make sure that I get the style that I wanted. After about an hour, she was finished and I left pleased with my hair. I will be back although the drive is a little far for me.
I recommend Mandy for cuts. I decided to write a review to return the favor because these things help me out. I've been going to Mandy for a while and am very happy. She is always professional and respectful. She has excellent communications skills. If I ask her opinion, she will give it to me. If I decide to do something else, she listens and asks questions to be sure she does exactly what I want. She doesn't act offended if I ask her opinion and then don't do what she said, and she doesn't impose it on me after I tell her something else. I have been to many salons in the past three years in Dallas and Fort Worth looking for a good hair cut (everything from Ulta to Richard Hayler), and Mandy has by far done the best job.
Disappointed...... I was a very happy customer of Tony's for almost a year. He was very attentive and gave me a great cut time and again. Then one day I arrived for my appointment about 15 minutes early. He was in the midst of working on another woman's hair. I believe he it was a color treatment. When it was my turn he showed me over to his station as usual and we reviewed what kind of cut I wanted. I couldn't help notice that the same woman getting the color treatment was now sitting under a heat lamp. Tony then stated that he was going to cut my hair DRY. That's right. Without shampooing it first. Now I don't know about you but half the fun of getting your hair done is the shampoo. I also make it a point not to wash my hair on the day I'm getting it done. Bottom line, it's expected and I assume, included in the price. I told Tony that I preferred he shampoo my hair first and he complied, albeit, not happily. It then became clear that I was being rushed so that the "color" client wouldn't sit under the lamp too long and it's a known fact that chemical treatments are the bread and butter of the hair biz. While Tony still gave me a great cut he hurried through the blowdry and style process so fast that my hair looked so bad I was embarrased to leave the salon. When I approached the counter to pay for my service I was abruptly told that Tony had raised his price to $75. This for a guy who didn't even want to take the time to shampoo my hair or style it appropriately? Needless to say I was put out. While I usually tipped Tony very generously, this time I asked the cashier to relay a message to Tony. "Your tip is included in the $75." Regrettably, I've never returned to him or Moda Salon for a haircut. Please people. Don't get so caught up in your talent and popularity that you feel it's now acceptable to treat your customers poorly. This is Fort Worth not Beverly Hills. Try not to forget WHO PAYS YOU and behave in kind. This kind of arrogance only causes you to lose loyal customers.
Bad haircut, no customer service. Both my husband and I went to this salon for haircuts. We love Aveda products, and it is very conveniently located. My haircut was fine, nothing special. A few days later my husband went in and he had to wait at least 20 minutes and then overheard the stylist tell the front desk person that she would 'catch-up' on her next appointment. She rushed through his haircut, and didn't properly trim the back, or shave his neckline. We called in the next day to see if she would fit him in to correct her haircut and they offered another appointment a week later. We told them that that was too long, and then they promised to call back later that day. No call. Needless to say we won't be going there again.

Outstanding Services!. I've been going to Salon Moda for over 10 years now, and although I have tried going to other salons closer to my home I wind up going back to Tony Jacobson at Moda Salon & Spa. Everytime I have strayed, he's always there to clean up the mess that someone else has done to my hair. The staff a is great and the atmosphere warm and inviting.
