Giovanna Williams

Best haircut I have ever had!!!

Sandra Kutarnia

Owner was rude and abrupt with his staff, myself and my grandchild during a recent visit. I called to express my disappointment and discomfort with his behavior, and he took no responsibility for the problem. Further, he escalated the unprofessional, bullying behavior with his staff after my call. I would not recommend this salon based on Mr. James' continuing arrogance and disregard for other's.

Spencer Earp

Super professional and polite. Lindsey is awesome! Always does a good job. Classy salon with nice atmosphere.

Chis Babb is simply the best!! He is creative, stylish, energetic and has incredible attention to detail. A true artist. Not to mention hilarious and entertaining. I feel like my haircut and style is a vacation. Thank you!

Spring Beavers

Christopher James Hair and Skin salon is wonderful! Upon entering I was immediately greeted and offered a beverage of my choice. I only waited a few minuted before getting started with Chris Babb the owner for my color/highlights appointment. His consult was on point, and the level of expertise and knowledge was excellent- any questions I had he was so helpful, which I appreciated. I left feeling revived and beautiful with my new color. Definitely recommend any of the outstanding hair and skin services offered here, all of their staff are great!

James Padilla

Great salon - skilled and personable staff and comfortable, relaxing ambiance. Nice, local place amidst the typical options in Uptown area of ABQ. Highly recommend!

Lenann Gardner

Love, love, love this new salon! My last haircut was the BEST -- and I have challenging hair. Both Chris and Andrea have done a great job with cut and color to make my baby hair look fuller and prettier. These folks are crushing it!

Chris A Salon owner charged in rape, assault of co-worker By: Matthew Reisen / Journal Staff Writer ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A local salon owner is accused of raping and assaulting a co-worker after inviting the man over for drinks at his Albuquerque home last August. Christopher Babb, owner of Christopher James Salon, is charged with two counts of criminal sexual penetration, battery and one count of aggravated battery, according to court records. Second Judicial District Attorney’s Office spokesman Michael Patrick said the assault took place Aug. 17, when Babb allegedly invited the co-worker over to share a bottle of wine. He said the co-worker “felt uncomfortable” but went to Babb’s home anyway. The co-worker told prosecutors he had some wine and soon “felt strange and weak” as if he had been drugged. Then Babb allegedly punched the man, who lost consciousness. Patrick said the co-worker awoke in Babb’s bed, with Babb biting him “in all sorts of private places” before he raped him. Afterward, the man was given a sexual assault exam, and “multiple different injuries” were discovered on his body. The co-worker told prosecutors that Babb later texted him asking for “another rendezvous.” Babb did not return calls for comment Wednesday.

Talented and friendly staff. Amazing customer service.

The worst haircut I've EVER had in in my life was from Jackie. DO NOT get your haircut from her unless you want a hackjob and told to "trust" her when you start asking questions. The very thing I did NOT ask for and was explicit about layers near my face, is exactly what this woman gave me and worse. I asked for layering in the back and told her not to touch the layers near my face as it took me YEARS to grow out. What does she do? Start chopping away years of regrowth (6 inches or more) as if its nothing. She asked me to remove my glasses for the cut and I should've NEVER listened to her. Not only was my beautiful long hair hacked into a million different non-sensical "layers" around my face that now look like I'm growing out lopsided bangs, one side was shorter than the other and more hacked into than the other!! I went back in and another stylist tried to "fix" it, ( she also admitted the cut was lopsided) but how can you fix a hackjob? I absoltely HATE looking at myself in the mirror because all I see are ugly, chopped up, uneven "layers" all around my face that will now take years to grow out. It doesn't even look like a hairstyle. This woman should NOT be allowed to touch anyone's hair-- ever. Words cannot describe the frustration and anger at allowing this woman to ever touch my hair. On top of not having any expertise in actually cutting hair, or listening skills, she doesn't even sharpen her scissors/shears, as the goofy lopsided "layers" she gave me two weeks ago are now littered with split ends! On top of it all Jackie was rude, argumentative and had the audacity to tell me to 'trust' her and let her finish after I started asking what she was doing. If I can warn anyone and save them the heartache and frustration that I am dealing with because of her ineptitude, so be it. I only gave the salon one star because the owner was at least sorry and refunded my money.

Jessica Reno

This salon is GORGEOUS, professional, and fun! Christopher Babb cut and styled my hair and did a wonderful job. He even showed me how to style it myself! I'm definitely coming back!

Amanda Puccini

Moved from ABQ a few months ago and I'm flying back next month because I miss my hairdresser... If that doesn't say this place is 5 stars, I don't know what does!! Chris Tsosie I miss you and you're the greatest!

Really great place to have wonderful people take care of you. Those shoulder rubs and scalp rubs are everything, my hair color looks great thanks to Chris Tsosie. My little cousin Margeaux Peters who is so talented just started working there and of course the always smiling and professional Chris Babb!

I really enjoyed this place overall. Its very aesthetic and all the clients are nice and seemed to enjoy working there. I'm very pleased with my haircut and service overall. I just didn't enjoy the round brush and blow-dry I got after. I don't believe it was great for my hair since the blowdryer was on too high but that's all. I recommend trying this place out :)

KerriAnne Balk

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! From the moment I entered the salon to the end of my appointment, Chris ( at the reception) was kind and friendly. Thank you! My stylist was Andrea Baca and she was A M A Z I N G ! I am so excited that I finally found a stylist in Albuquerque I wont be afraid to visit. My past experiences have not been too great. Since I am from out of the country, it is such a relief that I now know where and who to go to when I visit NM. She was kind, friendly, had a positive attitude and such great hair curls :) Its been more than a week now and I am still loving the haircut she gave me. I will definitely be visiting CJH+S again when I am in town. (p.s. My husband loves the cut too). Thank you very much.

Brian Farley

My stylist was Jackie, it was my first visit to this Salon and she did a great job, a true professional! I immediately made a second appointment with her. I highly recommend the Christopher James Hair Salon.

Abby Sizemore

We just moved here and I was nervous about someone new doing my hair. Walking in they were so polite. I love my cut and color. Also when finishing up I was being shown products without feeling that awkward push to buy them. It was simply telling me about the products instead of making me feel obligated to buy. I ended up actually purchasing the television shampoo and the amazing smelling leave in conditioner. Definitely my new go to. Thanks Jackie !

Kathy Renfrow

I highly recommend a Christopher James Hair+Skin experience. This "Best of Albuquerque" salon is elegant, clean, and comfortable with top notch stylists and customer service. It is conveniently located in Uptown close to numerous shopping, dining and lodging options. So whether you are new to Albuquerque like me and need a stylist, or just passing through and want to pamper yourself Christopher James Hair+Skin is for you!

Lexi Ulibarri

Really nice place, first came here on a field trip when I was in beauty school. Very knowledgeable. Andrea is really nice, I don’t feel intimidated with her like I would at most hair salons. Everyone I’ve talked to is really nice and professional.

Carol Mckenu

I was so lucky to get a coveted last-minute appointment at Julianne's salon on a recent weekend trip to NM from SF. The salon is super cute and everyone was very nice and helpful, the service was very attentive and personalized, they use high quality products--well worth the price.

Grace Contreras

Best upscale salon in Albuquerque. If you want beautiful colored and cut hair, this is the place to have it done! Very professional, beautiful place, always very welcoming. Experience the best Albuquerque has to offer!

belinda miller

I was running late They all were so forgiving-- they worked me around another appointment -- at first i was really disappointed with the cut primarily because I was upset with my hair still it is to short to be cut in the shape I long for -- But i knew that this morning when I got up would be the test to how Chris cut my hair-- i usually wake up its uncontrollable and i look like the a crazy lady --But this morning it was beautiful soft not dry and frizzy - And i actually looked like a morning person --My hair is so cute -Thank u Chris for a Wonderful cut -- And being so graciously patient and kind to me. See u in Oct.

carolyn peterson

I know my 75+ year old hair looks fab, but friends, neighbors, and even Costco shoppers and the checker at Trader Joe’s have asked about it. I steer them to Christopher J, the City’s outstanding hair salon. Thanks Chris!!!!❤️⚾️

Ivana Georgievova

Everybody is so friendly and professional, great service, quality products and work, love my hair color and cut, they even show helpful makeup tricks even though i have only hair appointment .

Antonia Roybal-Mack

This salon is beautiful and relaxing. The staff always makes me feel at home. They work hard to accomodate my schedule, which is important for a busy mom. Most important, my cut, color and Brazilian blowout is always perfect.

Tricia Romero



Great stylist and classy place.

Karla Garcia

I have been in ABQ for 4 years and I finally found someone that is detailed oriented.

Chris Babb and his staff are positively amazing! Kind and professional, and incredible talent. Whether it's a cut and color you desire, or a wedding day stylist, you will be thrilled with the end result. It is clear that impeccable customer service is at the heart of this business. I give them 6 stars out of 5!

Kimberly Haviland

Everyone very nice, friendly, professional, you feel welcomed and at ease. Chris is awesome, my first time there, I had a consult with him told him what I wanted he went over colors with me and did an excellent job, better than I could have imagined!!! Thanks again, Chris

Kari Kline

I would have given this establishment 5 stars, if not for Lesley (left side, farthest chair from the door).. To start: The Owner & establishment is well worth it. He's a lovely gentleman, the place is classy, & he obviously knows how to please the customer.. I would not be writing this if not to warn future customers of the hack-artist Lesley.. It was my first visit & I was very nervous about a drastic change in my hairstyle and told her so.. I showed her a photo of what I wanted (yes, an actual photo, not just a vaguevdescription..a long bob with little to no layers - easy peasy, right?) & she affirmed that it was no problem (I should have taken her staring at my hair & brushing it through for a prolonged period of time as a sign to trust my gut & ask to switch stylists). Unfortunately, when she was done literally hacking my hair to bits, it was a mess (stray strands, un-flowing areas, one side longer than the other, the front side nowhere near the length I wanted it - WAY too short, etc). I unexpectedly start crying after Lesley turns defensive (attempting to convince me that it's fine & to let her hack more off before I switch stylists to try to fix the mess she just made).. The Owner was an absolute champ & found me someone MUCH more knowledgeable (Thank You, Lyndsey!) to include covering the cost of the fix.. On top of which, the second stylist offered complimentary trims! I was relieved with the outcome & would recommend this establishment to anyone (with the acception of getting your hair done by Lesley). It's very well set up, nicely fragranced, lovely/professional staff (offered a beverage upon entering!) & the Owner is clearly willing to make things right in the face of something so wrong which right there is a 5 star experience, I'm just sorry it started so horribly. 10/10 will go again.

First visit. Hair perfection. The hair color I have been wanting for 4 years and Chris nailed it first try. Professional. Great vibe. I am a fan!

Pfft, Kari; do you troll much??? Gotta question the accuracy and authenticity of someone who admits that: 1) it was your first visit to visit the salon, 2) you were nervous about a drastic change in your hairstyle, and 3) you describe someone you don’t know as a hack. Seems overly dramatic and drenched in unreasonable expectations… As a father of teen daughters, we started going to Lesley a couple of years ago based on multiple recommendations from friends. We dutifully followed her over to Christopher James from her previous shop because she is the only stylist who consistently and continuously meets my girls’ approval. In fact, Lesley did my daughter’s hair for homecoming a couple of weeks ago and it looked great! Lesley has always been friendly, patient and professional. Your description of events is so far out of character for someone that my family and friends have known for years that I have a hard time believing this is truthful.

Great color and cuts! Very friendly and professional staff.

Dont waste your time or money anywhere else. These folks know what they are doing!

Cathryn Huff

I followed my stylist, Marion, from another salon and just finished texting her after getting the most compliments ever on my latest haircut. From the first time I ever met with her, she has achieved exactly what I've wanted, with color, cut and style. I trust her to make suggestions that are always better than what I could come up with, and she always remembers what we did before. She cuts it so that I can always replicate her styling myself (almost, but that's MY problem;-) She also always remembers details that we chat about from appt. to kids, my job, etc. She always explains the products that she is using and offers them for purchase with no pressure, and she never makes me feel guilty about coloring my own hair in between her professional sessions:-) She is a great stylist in every way, and I would recommend her to anyone. Good find, Christopher James!

I tried this salon out after my stylist moved here from another salon in town. First of all, it is a beautiful space and they make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the front door. The salon is filled with top-notch stylists, top-rated haircolor (Goldwell) and a great line of all-natural hair-care products by R&Co. Andrea put a great cut on my hair....and I came back the next day for highlights with Tori, who I had never used before. She did a great job on my hair and provided top-notch service! I will definitely be back! Thank you Christopher James for a great experience!

Valeria García

I LOVE Christopher James. My friend has been getting his haircuts there for a while, and I followed Lesley when she moved there this year. Not only is Lesley a fabulous and creative stylist that always accommodates even my craziest requests, but the ambiance at this salon overall is so amazing. Everyone including Lesley is very welcoming and hospitable, the salon itself is modern, chic, and clean, and the service is outstanding. There is never any pressure to purchase any of the products they have for sale, but will happily recommend something if you ask. They are very flexible with making and changing appointments, and the service overall is great. Would absolutely recommend!

Danae Moreno

I have been to MANY salons and hair places. TOO MANY to count... The last place I went to in the beginning of 2017 started good, came back a few times for color, then I asked the stylist doing my hair to finally give it a cut, (Toni&Guy Salon on Paseo btw), the stylist gave me one of the worst haircuts of my life. She didn't know 1in from 4inches, and the entire back of my head was lop sided and uneven. This was the shortest my hair has ever been. It was awful. I then saw a girl I knew went to see Tori at this new salon Christopher James. I inquired to her what I wanted, and that I was SCARED and particular about my hair, since the trauma I experienced at Toni&Guy. Tori listened to exactly what I said, and it was almost as if she was in my head, and knew what I was picturing. Tori really took the time to explain to me everything she was going to do, and showed me how it was going to look. It was amazing. My hair has never looked so good, and I can say I am entirely happy with every single thing, cut, color and style. Tori truly is a hair god. It has taken me a whole year to finally get where my hair is today, and it's so exciting every time I get to see her. She is a good friend, and an even better hair stylist! Go see Tori, you will love her!

Favour Okoro

If I could give 0 star I would. The store is unprofessional. Starting with them taking forever to attend to me despite that I had an appointment, then they asked me what I wanted to drink while I was waiting, I told them hot tea they never brought the tea. The worst is my makeup, the worst makeup I have ever paid for. If I knew they would waste my time and at the end not doing a better makeup I wouldn’t have bothered going there. The makeup I do to myself is way better than the service I got in this store.


Chris B is the best

Summer Durling

Great salon & I recommend to anyone. Very professional & Jackie does a great job! If you are ever unhappy with a service, they go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied!

Rachel Coffman

Andrea is awesome! Beautiful salon.

Jane Hill

I cannot say enough good things. I have had generally poor to horrible salon experiences in my life. This has led to hair that was nearly to my knees (and getting gray). I was treated with kindness, patience, and understanding. I now have manageable hair, with a touch of highlight, that actually looks great with very little fuss. So many complements. I love, love, love it and can't wait to go back!!. You can trust these folks. They know what they are doing, and they listen. Thank you Christopher James.
