Free Attitude with your $100 Haircut – I've been going to this salon since before the storm. I tolerated the attitude because I felt they were the best in the city. Last time I was there I was treated so poorly I vowed never to return. The blonde that Dallas used looked beautiful but damaged my hair so significantly that I have to keep cutting my hair short every month. I have no problem paying $100 for a haircut but I refuse to be mistreated and practically ignored by my hairstylist.
I would llike to take this opprotunity to give you some insight into my personality... I have spent over 30 years perfecting the techniques I use. I can see how someone might feel ignored because of the concentration and attention to detail I put into my work. There are times when I barely say a word during a service. I learned a long time ago that there are things like my personal life, politics, sex and religion that shouldn't be discussed in the salon. The only thing left to talk about is the weather and your hair. I choose to spend our time together on your hair. My trademark is that I do great haircuts and beautiful color. I also hum in your ear while I work... Thanks for understanding, Dallas
Atrocious – The staff has to be writing the other reviews because my experience there can only be summed up in one word: ATROCIOUS. My appointment was with Rachel and she gave me the worst color & cut ever.
We make every effort to listen to a clients needs and make our best attempt to achieve them, but it seems sometimes we don't meet thier expectations... When I read a review like this, I often wonder why clients don't feel that they can express thier disappointment whilst they are in the salon... Is there some unspoken rule that says you can't question the work... I hope that this person would contact me, I will make it right... We are here to design the best hair possible. To those of you who read this response... In this salon we listen, with our combined experience as a team and a great dedication to our work we strive only to meet your expectations, no less... If you get less, please say something... I care about what you have to say... Dallas
Needed some color correction, got me back into this century! – Rachel at SDBM is a really competent coloris/stylist! She understood my griefs with past colorists and bad haircuts! Thank God because my hair was headed down Melrose Avenue and that's about a decade too late!
Worth it !
Great service and advice – I absolutely loved the experience I had at Salon Du Beau Monde. I am new to NOLA and needed a salon. I got lucky when I made the choice to make an appointment at this salon. Rest assured that I am in no way associated with the business. I chose the salon as a stab in the dark after seeing the website. I am completely satisfied with Rachael?s color and cut that she gave me. She took the time to discuss with me what I wanted. I am getting married in April and she even took the time to consider how I wanted my hair to be for the wedding. She advised me not to go as drastically short as I initially wanted, due to the fact that I want to have long hair again for the big day. I am so glad that I listened to her! Additionally, the color was brilliant. I was the only customer in the place, as my appointment was really late in the day, but Rachael and Dallas made me feel right at home. I would recommend this salon to anyone who asked. It was a charming experience for a reasonable price.
Best salon experience I have ever had – DeShea rocks! My cut and color was exactly what I wanted and I LOVE my hair. I have received many compliments!! DeShea has lots of talent and fabulous personality. She also spends a lot of time with each client, which I greatly appreciate. Not your average get in-get out hair salon. The staff is very friendly and chic. It is not an extremely busy salon with stylists and clients all over the place so when I come here I can relax and enjoy the warm atmosphere. 100% attention is giving to the client. I think I found my new neighborhood salon!!! :-)
Best Salon in New Orleans – I am very picky about my hair. Before visiting Rachel at Salon Beau Du Monde, I jumped from salon to salon trying to find the right color/cut combo. It seemed that either i got a great cut and a bad color, or a great color bad cut whenever I visited other salons. However, after talking to Rachel about what I really wanted my hair to look like, she took her time to explain that I would have to be patient to slowly transform the color and the layers into the right look (due to the bad past cuts/color). Two trips later and the results were PERFECT. I am approached on a weekly basis about "who colors your hair? Is it even colored? It looks so natural!" A natural looking blonde is hard to achieve, and I am happy to report that Rachel knows exactly how to achieve this. Furthermore, my layers are finally "layered" right and fall perfect after a simple dry. Everytime someone asks about my hair, I send them to her. She is patient, methodical, and knowledgable, dispite her young age. And after sending over ten friends in her direction, we all keep coming back for more! If you want subtle, healthy, natural looking locks, visit Salon Beau Du Monde.
Exactly What I Wanted – I had a great experience at Salon du Beau Monde. I had a cut and highlight/lowlight combo in the first week of June '08. Dallas did both my cut and color, He is very calm and confident, my hair looks great, he put me on the right track to get my hair the way I want it. The color is exactly what I wanted, he did everything with care and precision. The results are the best I have ever had. The experience was very relaxing as there was none of that typical salon snobbery or arrogance, Dallas is completely above all of that because he truly knows what he is doing! They stay open late which is great!
If you are looking for a great salon, look no further.
A top notch salon – I felt compelled to write here and describe my very positive experience after I'd recommended this place to a friend and she called me to tell me about the negative reviews on this site. I hadn't noticed the reviews before, and was actually shocked. Dallas, the owner, is a wonderful and skilled stylist, who is super nice and friendly. He works with different hair textures and styles, and I always love what the salon does with my (and others') hair. In fact, it's near perfect when I leave! The staff members are also nice and welcoming. In fact, I moved into the neighborhood recently, happened to walk by, and stopped in and made an appointment--no fuss, no muss. Everyone was nice and professional, and I've been going ever since.
Avoid- Bad cut and attitude – I have been to this salon twice for a haircut. I was not satisfied the first time but went back again anyway out of convenience (location). The same hair dresser, a young blonde that seemed inexperienced and unfriendly cut my hair both times. The second time once the cut was over I was asked to look in the mirror and let her know what I thought. When I told her that I thought it looked like a mushroom top and that the top layer was too short, she said" well there is nothing I can do with that because it is too short". WHY would she have cut a layer well above my ears, who does that??????????? She said that her own doing was too short!!!!!!
I will never go to this salon again. That young lady should go back to beauty school.
Also, I am a dog lover, but not a fan of fleas. If you do not mind bad haircuts, rudeness and fleas then this place is for you.
I can live with the fact that you did not like your haircut, but you are clearly lying about my salon having fleas...You are vicious and should retract this statement...Regular guest, and there are many, would attest to the fact that my dogs spend very little time in the salon...
As for the haircut we are here to serve you...I have staff with different levels of experience and charge accordingly...After the first visit if you were not happy you could have asked to see someone with more experience when you booked your second vist...I have been doing hair for thirty years and would have been happy to deal with your challenge, if you had contacted me...We a very small salon, where the first compliment is about our work environment...We never over book and pay attention to every detail...My staff work as a team, if you had communicated that you were unhappy, your stylist would have asked me to consult with you...None of which occured, including the fleas...
Very Unpleasant Experience – Beau Monde is an attractive salon conveniently located in the CBD. I visited the salon once after growing out a "bad haircut" for over six months.
The stylist who cut my hair seemed very skilled. Unfortunately the stylist either misunderstood or disregarded me during our initial consult. I was very specific about not wanting thick bangs or fringe around my face and the stylist cut the same thick bangs I'd just spent half the year growing out. When I returned to the salon to request she tweak the cut her solution was to cut deeper layers in the back of my hair. I finally returned a third time with photos of how I wanted the front of my hair to be angled away from my face. She declined to work further on my hair. When I requested further assistance the proprieter of the salon declined to assist me or to refer me to an alternative stylist, or even to evaluate the cut and provide some styling recommendations to make the cut easier to live with as it grew out.
This experience was stressful and humiliating. The real measure of a company's service standards is demonstrated in their responses and efforts when a mishap occurs and this salon was a complete disappointment in that regard.
We tried several times, by this clients own admission. She states in her review that she brought a photo of how she wanted her hair angled away from her face...There is only one way to angle hair back away from the face, first you start at the shortest point, the center and angle back to the longest point. The stylist was being conseverative with the original cut...This client returned on two more occasions to have it angled more which only creates more layers as the angle moves back...Click on her screen name to see what she has said about other reputable salons...I am not sure that we could have ever please her...
