Such a great place! There was a scheduling conflict with my appointment, which the salon handled by having one of the owners, Tony, cut my hair. He was such a nice person and really enjoyable to chat with. He really helped figure out how my hair should be cut during the consultation, and I am extremely happy with the results. I love the whole experience of being at Gordon, from the hand massage (thanks Chad, that was amazing!) to the way they suggest products for you without putting on a hard sell. Why would you go anywhere else?

I have been seeing Maria for years and think she does a wonderful job. However, (and no reflection on Maria), I was very surprised and disappointed to learn that the price of a haircut went up yet AGAIN. If I'm not mistaken, it was raised not long ago. (I don't know if color has gone up as well...I did not check.)

Kelsey is a delightful young woman and listened carefully to my input on the color and cut I wanted. Since this was my first appointment with her, I know that over time we will "tweak" the color and cut a little as I want more "shine" and highlights and perhaps a style adjustment. But overall, I was pleased.

Mr. Gordon - I have been a client at your salon since moving to the area 7 years ago. I started at the Highland Park Salon with Jake. He was amazing and I was very sad when he left. However, before he left, he suggested I see Holly. What a great recommendation! I've been seeing Holly ever since and could not be happier. She is an amazing hairstylist and person. I always look forward to my visit because of her professionalism, friendliness and warmth! You could not have a better employee! So it was with great sadness that on my last visit, I had to inform Holly that it was to be my last with her. I get my haircut every 3 weeks and just cannot justify spending $75 for my haircut, no matter how much as I like the salon and how great I think Holly is. It was so hard to do but I didn't want to just not show up anymore. She deserves more respect than that! And being the consummate professional that she is, she handled it better than I ever could have imagined! She said she completely understood and that I shouldn't feel bad. She wanted to make sure that I was ok and would be well taken care of. She made it all about me and my feelings and not about her at all, completely unselfish! Not only that, she took it a step further! She said that there was another stylist in the salon that she thought would be perfect for me. She said that Madison was amazing with men's hair and charged less for her services. Shen then introduced me to Madison and went over the specifics of how she cuts my hair. I just thought she went above and beyond! It's that level of service that is just so amazing that keeps me coming back to Gordon's! Holly made a stressful situation into a win-win for me and the salon! She made me feel good that I wouldn't have to have the stress of finding a new stylist and she saved you a very loyal customer! I'm sure you know what an amazing employee you have in Holly but I just wanted to make sure that you know just HOW amazing she is! Never let her go! With much appreciation, Anthony Bernal

All services were great. Assistant and holly responded appropriately and thoughtfully to requests. Very helpful in picking out products.

Tina is excellent - she asks all the right questions regarding how I want my hair, and then works magic! Aside from her styling skills, the scalp and hand massages really make the experience luxurious. It is well worth every penny!

Color with Jenny P. Was excellent. Blow dry was with Rosita (not sure of her name) but she was excellent! She was also training someone ( a student that was shadowing her) and she was doing a fantastic job, explaining and demonstrating the shampoo and the blow dry. She was very pleasant and my hair looks great!

Great blow dry with Jenny, but the additional relaxing experience of getting a head and neck massage and a delicious Mimosa to sip, made it a perfect Valentines treat!

Koral always takes the time to ask about my hair and what I want to do with it. She lifts and flips and examines it. She is great with layers. I have long hair and like long layers and she does a great job. She is also super sweet and I lover her scalp massage. I am always greeted when I enter, someone takes my coat and asks if I want a drink. Koral also explains any product she uses and shows me how to use it.

I really like Koral and I love the way she cuts my hair and her blow dry was amazing! I am a little unsure of the highlights. They seem a little chunky in parts and maybe a little too red but overall ok. I like my highlights to look more natural and I will explain that to her on my next visit.

She is also calm, punctual, and very friendly. I feel spoiled every time I see her. Andreea

My daughter Alyssa is 12 and we came in for a blow dry. Hannah seemed very nervous and wasn't nearly as friendly as the many other technicians we have had at the salon. She didn't smile much or make Alyssa feel comfortable. The blow dry was good though! We are huge fans of Gordon salon!

The experience was wonderful. I got a great cut; without giving too much direction on what I wanted, she was able to know just what would look great. I'll come again, thanks!

I love my new color! It looks shiny and healthy, and the lighter color gives me a boost in the middle of winter. I also appreciate the hand massage that I get each time because it makes me feel pampered.

Jessica is great. She is the first hair stylist I've ever looked forward to seeing. She takes great care of me, listens to my preferences but also gives her professional opinion which I appreciate. The front desk is also easy to work with and I wish I wasn't moving so I could keep visiting the salon!
   Emily

As someone who is extremely particular about her hair, I don't let a lot of people color, cut or foil it. So it is much appreciated when I go into the salon to see Jessica, and she takes her time first listening to my detailed desires on how I want my hair to look. She makes me feel comfortable in her chair, and I have never been disappointed. I LOVE my new color and my fresh cut.

Brittany is great - she always does a wonderful job - gentle yet thorough. I think it's too bad that she doesn't have a good space, with an appropriate chair, a privacy curtain, and a better light. (These are just my thoughts - not hers!!) - I miss the little room in the back.
