Testimonials

We have over 400 reviews on Demand Force! Click HERE to read all of our reviews.

I couldn’t be happier that I found Smitten a year ago. Jana has been a godsend and is the only person I trust for my highlights and cut. She listens to what I want and offers her expert advice as to what would look best for my face shape and coloring. I’d recommend her to everyone…although then it might be even harder for me to get an appointment.

Katie L.

I always look forward to my appointments at Smitten with Lynsey. The girls at the front desk always greet me promptly with a smile. Lynsey is phenomenal – she seems to know exactly what I want even if my description is rather vague. The shampoo girls are fantastic – there’s no way I can replicate their scalp massages. Everyone is so friendly and truly professional. I love that I found Smitten so close to home.

Tana F.

Before I moved to the area, I was a hair stylist myself. I did a ton a research before I decided where to go to get my hair done, since I know the difference between a well educated and up to date stylist, and one that isn’t! I made an appt with Lyndsey and loved her! Best curly hair cut ever, and beautiful looking blonde! Everyone there is really friendly, and it has a cool and down to earth atmosphere!

Emma E.

I have been going to Michael since March 2012 and he does a fantastic job with my cut and glaze. And the overall staff provides excellent service. It is also nice to support a local establishment.

Edward H.

Love my hair after I walk out of Smitten. My hair looks fresh, updated and healthy.

ps. It is always a fun experience, everyone is so nice!

Coralie M.

Beautiful salon with very talented and wonderful staff – all in all a fabulous experience every time – highly recommend!
