The best! When I called to book an appt, they originally said there were no available appts. So I asked to be put on a waiting list for cancellations. Within 2 hrs, she called me to say they have an opening and asked if I wanted it. I grabbed it! The owner of the salon did the tourmaline treatment, mind u this is not a quick process, it takes 2 hours. Anyway,my hair looks amazing and on the way out another client said that I had to go out and show off my hair! Thank you Gordon salon

I sat down in Daniel's chair and said "I don't know what I want". It didn't faze him. He started by asking questions about what I liked about my hair, what was my routine, what products I use etc, then he went and mixed color. It turned out great. During the color he was very personable. We chatted the entire time. He had other customers waiting and was conscious of them, but I didn't feel like he whipped through my service to move in to someone else. It was my first time seeing him and I was very impressed.

I've been a Gordon customer for over 12 years. Your team of professionals are fabulous. I love all the stylist. I rarely feel the need for a recut and have no complaints. I simply didn't get the back shaped right the first time around. No one's fault. No criticisms. It happens. Alexis understood immediately want the adjustment cut needed to be and she nailed it. Very happy and very appreciative. Thank you!
