REVIEWS OF Jim Ostrosky Salon, Inc. IN Alabama

Christi Jensen

Shelby did an excellent job with my highlights and tips on covering up my grey hair! I left the salon feeling gorgeous! I highly recommend Shelby!

Carla Vargas Costa

I got a haircut there and I regret it! There was only one girl cutting hair and she was horrible. Not only she made lots of rude comments but also she did a horrible job cuting my hair. I showed her a picture and she did anything close to it. I would never go back nor recommend it to anyone!

Anita Mitchell

I was searching for a Salon when I found Jim in the yellow pages. I found Jim to be very interested in what I wanted ....he listened to me, which is important. I wanted a short pixie cut with foil highlights to cover up the white. AND that is exactly what I got and loved it. He uses Aveda products which is a plus and his staff is friendly. I believe I have found a Salon I can stick with and trust I will get exactly what I ask for. I even took my 12 year old Granddaughter to get her hair shaped and get the lowlights she wanted for a special event. When he finished she said, "WOW".. it was perfect and all her friends loved her hair.

Ann Marie

Jim absolutely changed not only my hair but my life. My hair was so thin and bald in places that I could not wear it down in public at all. Which sucks being a sophomore in college with date parties and socials to go to. I was embarrassed to even go in public and was so depressed. Jim actually made, what I thought was impossible, work and I now have a full head of hair! Would 100% recommend. I am absolutely so happy with how my extensions turned out! Thank you so much Jim!

Leighton Chappelle

Best salon in Birmingham. Hands down. whatever the style, whatever the color, cut, length... Jim will make it happen. Just like that. I walked in, told Jim what I had in mind and he made it a reality. I walked out of that salon loving my hair (something I have never ever experienced before). Tiffany is so sweet and always willing to work with you. Jim Ostrosky, very simply stated, transformed my hair. I have never been happier with it. whatever you envision your dream cut to Jim Ostrosky. He's a genius and you will feel absolutely stunning. They take care of not just your hair, they take care of you. Trust me. Jim Ostrosky Salon is the best in Birmingham. Stop going to all of those ridiculous overpriced salons where the stylists don't listen to you or to what you want. Let your hair down and leave it in the capable hands of Jim Ostrosky. You won't regret it.

Kerri O'Brien

Shelby is awesome! I was amazed at my transformation. I will be returning again and again to see her.

Katie Hamilton

Shelby is so sweet and always does a great job on my cut and color.

Natalie Smith Grimmett

Nicest salon Ihave ever been to. Jim is the best stylist i have ever had! He is excellent with color, extensions and contemporary hair styles! I have never had anyone cut my hair, thicken and lengthen before. Now i can enjoy styling everyday and i have so much more self esteem! I Also wanted to mention how Nice and enjoyable all the employees are! Jim Ostrosky’s is superb and I love the aveda products! Such a wonderful place to come and relax while getting pampered and treated with professionalism as well as friendship.

Kiesha Thomas

Tried to dye my own hair and messed it up. They fixed it in one appointment. Looks great now thanks.

Erin Rubin

I had been wanting to try hair extension for awhile, a friend mentioned this salon to me so I called to get a consultation. They did an absolutely fabulous job with my cut, highlights and extensions. Would highly recommend!

Luanne Bondarenk

Kim does a great job. Been cutting my hair for years. The salon is set up in cute house that has been renovated for business use by the salon owner. Great selection of hair supplies

Melissa Sewell

I made an appointment to get my hair color retouched. They booked me with Jill and I could not have been more pleased. She was extremely confident in her abilities with color which put me at ease. She was able to match my previous color exactly! Jill was very informative about not only the products she was using but her styling techniques, ensuring that I could closely reproduce the look at home. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone looking for a comfortable, welcoming salon with knowledgable stylists!

Julie Broadway

Chose this salon to try on a whim and it turned out to be a great decision! The staff is friendly and talented. Shelby did a great job on my hair color ❤️ I came in with tape in extensions and Jim quickly introduced me to a much better alternative- keratin bond- and OMG the difference is crazy! I highly recommend this salon to those looking for a quality place!

Jenia Crossley

I have always had long hair. About a year ago I had to cut over 2 ft off and then due to stress the top of my hair started falling out. Needless to say I didn't feel like myself anymore. I really didn't think Jim was going to be able to help me but I gave it a shot. He looked at my hair and said no problem. He even got it colored that same day. A week later and I am ecstatic with the results. They are all super nice at the salon, take the time to listen to what you want and work with it. Well the fact I drive 2 hrs one way for my appointments says it all. Thank you so much for giving me myself back.

Lorrie Crook

I have been going to the Ostrosky Salon for about 3 years, and enjoy every visit. Jim, Tiffany, and the rest of the crew make the experience great, and the best review I can give is that people are often surprised that my hair color is not "home grown".

Jodie Williams

When I first came to consult with Jim, my hair was a scraggly, ragged mess- thin, broken off, damaged so badly that I was considering a buzz cut. Jim told me he could help me. That was an understatement. Three days later, I walked out of his salon with long, gorgeous Barbie-doll hair, thanks to his patience and precision with installation of beautiful extensions. Jim's work dramatically changed my appearance. My trip to his salon was time, money, (and a vacation day) very well spent. To quote him, "Invest in your hair. It's a crown you never take off." I can't agree more...

Rees Phillips

I went to Jim Ostrosky Salon to get over twelve inches cut off. While getting that much cut had me a little bit nervous, Jim was very personable, great about listening to what I wanted and was very confident in his work. He made sure that it looked just the way I wanted it to. I left with my hair both looking great and feeling great.

Cindy Rollins

Jim did an amazing cut and style....he fixed what the last stylist at another salon messed up! I will definitely recommend the services here to friends and family!

Beverly McCutcheon

I went to Jim Ostrosky Salon Friday May 5th and that was the best experience i have had for years. Jim changed my whole life when I went there. I had color and highlights that have totally changed my life. I have always wanted highlights for so many years but have not done it. I so love, love my hair now. If you love your hair it makes you a different person and Jim did that for me. I cant't wait to show off my hair. I was so happy and just the perfect thing for me. He knew exactly what to do and not overdo. If you have something you truly want done to you hair, go see Jim. He is the only person in the world I trust with my hair now and will never ever go anywhere else. He knows his business. So if you are afraid to do something to your hair that you have always wanted please let him do it. He is my prince in shinning armor. Please go and let him make you the princess you always wanted to be. His salon is warm and special and everyone there are so nice. I have been to a lot of salons and feel uncomfortable. They are like home. So please go and let him do that magic touch to your hair, you will never regret it. If I let him do my hair and had no idea how it would come out, I couldn't be happier. Do that special something for yourself. Happy hair is happy person and we all know that. He even does hair extensions which i don't do but the ladies come out looking absolutely beautiful. Just try something new and see how you feel. I have hated my own hair for years but never again. Thank you Jim for changing my life!!!!!! Sincerely, Bev

Lauren Nobles

Got my hair Japanese straightened by Jim Ostrosky last week and I am sooo happy with it! If you are considering this treatment/looking for a good place to get it done, this is the place!

Andy Mayfield

I get the thermal straightening and Jim does a fabulous job on my hair. I have used him for years and would never go to anyone else. Excellent service and I love my hair!!!

Tracy Townley

Shelby was extremely professional, intelligent and skilful. I am very pleased with my highlights and hairstyle.

elise mikell

I initially went to Jim to get him to put in my tape in extensions that I had purchased online. The extensions that I purchased were wrong; however, I still decided to go to my appointment to get a consultation for infused extensions. I ended up leaving with a full head of hair thanks to Jim. He could see how desperate I was to have long hair again so he gathered up the extensions he had on hand and went ahead and put them in (plus he gave me a MAJOR discount on them) I absolutely love my heat infused extensions and will continue to go to Jim and get them put in whenever it's time to replace them. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is that they charged me $63 to get my ends trimmed (no wash or dry) and I thought that was too much, but it hasn't stopped me from going back. I would still recommend Jim to anyone.

Miss Kim is a jewel, she has cut my boys hair for years. We will follow her wherever she goes.

So, I was doing some research because I have been doing hair for 12 years but I can’t do my own hair. It’s very long and blonde. First of all, Curtis. I’m not sure if you are male or female but let me explain something to you. The stylist and salon was curtious enough to let you know they were not comfortable doing her hair, because 1. Going black to blonde is very complicated. It causes damage #1 and it’s takes more than one visit or process if it’s done correctly. 2. your daughter has curly hair and she is mixed which means her hair is African AMERICAN/Caucasian mix but the African genes are much stronger. Which means her texture and hair shaft is thick, curly, and could be course. So, again makes the process to go blonde even more complicated. Would you rather them not tell you and jack her hair up? Or would you rather them be upfront and honest with you? Don’t make this situation about white and black or about race. Choose your battles because unless you know the flavor...don’t store the koolaid. I give major props to the salon and owner for how they handled the situation and unless they were rude, which obviously was not bc he apologized right off and explained. I will be calling and making my appointmen. I’ll make my review after.

Brenda Slatton

The hairstylist was very friendly and professional but very disappointed that I left with the same gray hair I went there with while saying I wanted it gone from the moment I sit in the chair

Joey Graham

I had a wonderful experience at Jim Ostroskys. My color never looked better. Jim uses all AVEDA products and he gives you so much personal attention. You will be in great hands at Jim Ostroskys.

Scarlett jade

AMAZING they are so nice and they made my hair go from black to ash blonde. I would totally go back.

kim gibson

The most horrific experience I've ever had at a salon! I drove 2 hrs from Florence to Birmingham to get a hair consultation and the following wednesday, which was yesterday , I got my hair done. Mr. Ostrosky was a nice person, the people that worked there were nice as well. Mr. Ostrosky attempted to treat my hair by applying a Japanese hair straightening treatment, it was a disaster! At my consultation, he quoted me a price of $600.00. My hair is thick and long and he became overwhelm by it. He applied the products in hope that they would have done the job of loosening my curls and when that didn't happened, due to his technique or lack of, he would brush the comb over my hair because it was too much work for him to take the time to actually comb my hair. The process took over 4 hrs and I became frustrated because it became very clear he was not skilled in applying this product!! At the end of it all , he was to blow-dry my hair and then flatiron it. Once again, he refused to detangle my hair, which should not have been needed if he applied the product professionally. I then asked him to let me detangle my hair because it will become more tangle if you brow dry it and don't detangle it before hand or if you don't detangle it during the blowdrying process. I started to detangle my my own hair. It was a very unreal moment!! Never have I been to a solon where I took a comb from my purse and attempted to salvage my own hair!!! I had had enough! I got up and refused to have him flatiron it. He proceeded to charge me $550.00, he told me he took $50.00 off because he didn't finalized the awful process with the flatiron. I payed him, I was so upset, I regretted it. You would think a professional person would not have demanded payment for something that was nowhere near professionally done! My hair is matted and very dry. The only progress was, it now has less volume, but I'm wondering, what price did I pay for that? only time will tell. I left the salon with my horrible experience and drove two hrs back to florence, but It's not over for me, it is now a waiting game, I am hoping my hair will be ok.

Drenna Shrake

It had been years since I got compliments on my hair and I told Jim that when I walked out I felt great. The next day I saw my high school friends and they raved about my hair then I went to my wed. night bop group and once again I got so many compliments. Jim thanks so much for listening to me and giving me a great style!!!

Linda Cleckler

I began going to Jim Ostrosky about six months ago. Since I began going to him, my hair has done better than it has in years. I've gone to other people for years that didn't take the time to understand what I could do with my hair when I left the salon. He perfectly assesses our needs before picking up the scissors and his approach works! I have seen him three times now and even my husband says I look 10 years younger. I couldn't praise him any higher!

Joni Ayers

Jim is wonderful with color!!! I've been going to him for more than15 years and always leave happy!!!

L. Malone

Outstanding, professional service. You'll never find anyone better than Jim! He gets my hair exactly right every time!

Lindsay Williams

I came to Jim 2 months ago to get micro-link hair extensions, and he is wonderful!!! I have had my hair 2 months now, and I couldn't possibly be any happier. I will be a life-long customer of Jim's for my extensions and am so happy I found him!

Joanna Christopher

Shelby gave me a great cut. I am quite particular; Shelby listened, took time to see and feel my hair and gave me a beautiful cut. She was also a sweetheart! I will definitely be returning! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Caroline Stephens

I'm extremely picky about who does my hair, and I heard about this place from a friend so I decided to try it out. I'm so glad that I did! Shelby did a fantastic job on my hair and she was so friendly. She made me feel like I've been coming there for years even though it was my first time going to that salon. I got a haircut, shampoo, style, and balayage and my hair looks amazing! I highly recommend Jim Ostrosky Salon.

Nayeli Lopez Cardona

My experience at Jim Ostrosky Salon is fantastic! My hair extensions lasted 9 months and the hair color is awesome

Jackie Jones

Sarah Garcia

I got highlights and color done by Shelby. She did awesome and never rushed through time. I've received many compliments on my hair since then.

Vellera Cole

The ladies that work there are very good great place to get your hair done

Curtis Hill

I brought my daughter in for a consult as I would any salon because I have found many don't know how to handle curly hair and my daughter wanted to go from dark brown to blond hair. When they took my daughter back the owner was called over. He proceeded to apologize to my daughter for basically wasting a trip cause they didn't work on African American hair. My daughter was so humiliated and embarrassed. My daughter for one is biracial. Her hair is neither African American nor white. It is a beautiful unique blend and any talented beautician would have been able to see that. So as far as your salon goes, you can keep your privileged white folks. You really should be ashamed of yourself and maybe some continuous education will help. America is a blend of multicultures and as a salon owner you should probably be more capable of working on other hair types that might be different from yours...

I just got my hair cut here. It looks terrible. I wanted to get my hair cut and styled and read reviews online. This "salon" had good reviews, but those just regarded coloring of hair, and not cutting. I told the stylist what I wanted, but of course she was unable to follow instructions. This haircut was on par with supercuts or great clips. I asked her what she thought about my hair, and her response was "it's your hair dude." I realize it's my hair. I made the mistake of thinking you were a stylist. The stylist herself had pretty poor hair, so I don't really know what I was expecting. She also reeked like cigarettes. I would not recommend going to this salon.
