"Jen at Velvet is the best! When I went in and asked for all over balayage and for her to turn my hair from an dark chocolate brunette to more of a Carmel shade and she didn’t bat an eye. She took the time and care to hand paint beautiful highlights throughout my hair, and a month later, I’m still getting compliments and am loving the results. She also is fantastic at Deva Curl cuts and styling as well :)"
"I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Great vibe/music play lists. Amazing staff, all highly skilled, up to date with education on current trends and each unique with the looks they produce. I would feel comfortable seeing any of the stylists here."
"No lie this is the best Salon around! My experience with Velvet is always 1000/10 and my review is extremely overdue! The salon is beautiful, clean and welcoming! They have an inhouse pup named Millie who makes the salon feel just like home. The stylists are top knotch, extremely personable and knowledgeable in all things hair and products. I've seen Emily for forever now and she understands my fine hair and really helped educate me on how to take care of it. I recently got extensions put in by Lish and had an amazing experience working with her! The salon and these stylists make me and my hair feel beautiful and confident. Unfortunately they are stuck with me for forever so sorry not sorry! I would recommend Velvet to anyone and everyone who wants an amazing hair experience. If you aren't coming here you really are missing out!"
"I had a wonderful experience at Velvet Hair Studio as a new client. Annie did an amazing job on my Deva cut I was so happy with how it turned out. She exceeded my expectations and is a true hair magician with curly hair. I’m so thankful that I found a stylist who takes her time to beautifully cut each strand of hair and walks you through the entire process. She made me feel comfortable during the entire service and also gave me some great tips on how to properly style and care for my hair. Definitely looking forward to my next visit. Thanks again Annie!"
