REVIEWS OF Square Root Salon IN New Mexico


Great place, I recommend Jenn

Veronica Ahring

I hate the color nothing like I asked for. The cut is worse than it was, I spent over 200.00 and am truly disappointed.

Marisol Maldonado


It was my first time visiting this salon. It was quite busy at 8am! But not untolerable. Great atmosphere, pleasant staff, very happy with my cut. Siobhaen was particularly wonderful. Scalp massage with lavender oil, high energy, genuinely loves what she does. Highly recommend!

Jacob Autry

This was my first time here and Jonathan K. did an amazing job on my hair! Definitely will be going back to see him!

Ross Rader

Everyone asks me who cuts my hair! After going to several Aveda salons, I have found that this place by far has the best men's haircut in Abq!

lara sullivan

Jonathan was amazing!

Ghadah Rahman

Did a great color job and gave good advice on my make-up.

Kyle Baxter

Outstanding salon! Warm and comfortable! Very friendly staff! Delicious coffee or tea offered to you when you arrive at the salon. Amazingly talented stylists/colorists! Highly recommend Merideth for cut/color and this salon for anyone seeking high-end, high-quality salon services!

Jeanette Perez

Wonderful ambience and great stylists. Mariah did a cut and color (balyage) on my hair and it's seriously the best I've ever had. So happy to have found a new stylist!

Acacia Good

Absolutely the best coloring I've had.

BOK Trusty

The absolute finest! I have never had better treatment in the hair world than Square Root Salon. I recently moved here from the New York area and dreaded the idea of looking for someone new to work on my hair. A good friend recommended David and I could not be happier. A beautiful job trimming and shaping my hair. Thank you to everyone at Square Root.

Great people!

Madison restored my faith and trust in people. I have curly hair and have never had a good experience at a hair salon. Two years after my last experience I was ready to trust again and I am so glad I chose right this time. She took her time with my hair, gave me tips on how to style and care for it, and was visibly excited on working with curly hair. Everyone at the salon is extremely nice and for the first time ever, I was sad when my experience ended and had to leave. 10/10

Christina Martinez

Impressed is an understatement with this salon. From the moment you walk in you're greeted with friendliness and professionalism. I was completely impressed by how clean this establishment is. I always notice dust on light fixtures or airducts in other salons however SquareRoot was immaculate!

April Espinosa

This is absolutely the best place in Albuquerque by far!!! I will never go anywhere else. Frances Silva is AMAZING!!! She makes you feel like a star! And when you leave her chair.... You're shining brighter!! Check it out and see what I mean. You'll be glad you did!!-

I discovered square root salon purely by accident because I needed a hair cut. I was iffy going to a new salon, but I went for it. BEST DECISION EVER. Mariah does a great job and also bless her soul for dealing with the mess that my hair was. The atmosphere is great, everyone is nice, it's welcoming. I think I just found a new place to get my cuts.

Jovan Gauthier-Vincent

Great service, skill, and people in general. They cater to any hair type last I checked. Highly recommend Merideth or Jess. I've never gotten a disappointing cut or colour from them.

michelle lindholm

I love this place. Just what Abq needs. Upscale, non-pretentious, skilled stylists, comfortable, clean, polite and efficient.

Johnathan VanDeCar

I love the vibe here. I sit with Elspeth and she does magic with my hair. I always feel great after going to her. They serve you with tea from St. James Tea Room, which is local and great quality, and are prompt and friendly. Plus, how can you go wrong with a salon that has a pun for a name and mixes math with art?

Natalie Adams

Love the vibe if this place! I've gone here twice, Jessie was my "artist" . She did a fabulous job both times. Can't wait to have my hair done again soon.

Caleb Ward

Jayson Grace


Decided I wanted a haircut while in Albuquerque for a short visit. I chose this studio based on reviews and I was not disappointed. Very nice, hip, studio. Clean, open, and comfortable. I was encouraged to see how busy they were with quite a few stylists and support staff. Wish I lived closer to make this MY go-to place. Madison was very friendly and patient. She took her time cutting and shaping my very thin head of hair exactly as I asked.

Briana Roth

Go see Jonathan Kronz. He's amazing!

Rudy Meixell

Jessie at Square Root Hair Salon has been cutting my hair for a little over a year now. She listens well to what I say I want done with my hair, and we have settled into a routine, at least for the time being. Along the way, she recommended trying grey blending, in response to my dissatisfaction with the very uneven distribution of white in my hair, and my doubts about fully dyeing it. I’ve liked the results of that treatment. Jessie is very organized and does a good job keeping track of where we are with my hair, and any concerns I’ve expressed in the past. She is warm and has a good sense of humor, but she manages to combine that with a sense of professional decorum. In general, Jessie comes across as very trustworthy, even if I hardly know her. I do have mixed feelings about leaving a positive review mentioning Jessie specifically, since I don’t want a lot of competition booking appointments with her! The salon itself can be a little overwhelming initially, given its size and the amount of activity going on at any one time, but it provides a welcoming atmosphere. The high ceiling and many large windows give the space an open feeling. I think the fact that the salon focuses on ongoing training and group events of various sort (for its hairdressers) creates a certain amount of camaraderie among its employees. That’s how it seems anyway. With all the hairdressers learning new things on a continuing basis, there is a positive vibe. I’m sure that with that many human beings in one place, there must be some personality clashes, but if there are, everyone who works there is keeping it well hidden. Overall, everyone seems nicer than I initially expected, walking in for the first time.

Elena Del

Been coming here for 5 years. Irene is the absolute best. Never a bad experience or haircut! I always get compliments on my hair. Thanks Irene!

Jaquelynn Flores

You do not know quality until you get your hair cut, styled, waved- anything- with Jonathan. His attention to detail is astounding! Jonathan takes your vision and makes it work on your hair. I've never been happier with hair cuts or waves before. On top of the expert hair care, Jonathan is very pleasant and it's a blast every time I go to the salon. I've been going to him for a year and it's been amazing every time!

Jamie Benavidez

Fun and bustling yet extremely relaxing environment. Super professional and straight forward staff with appropriate level ratings and charges. I love to treat myself here and the products they sell work excellent and smell wonderful! They offer free water and coffee too which adds to the numerous pleasantries. Nina is thee best stylist I've ever trusted my hair with in all of my 30 years. Thanks Nina and thank you Square Root for helping me feel so taken care of :-D

Shannon McIntosh

Bob Cody

We have student attending here for her externing, Miranda, and she loves it!! Thanks for helping her grow!

Alisha Romero

They do a great job with hair. Unfortunately one of the hairdressers decided to give a sob story on how she couldn’t give her child the birthday she would of liked. Don’t try and guilt your clients into giving a bigger tip. You want to talk about your life fine but I don’t want to hear a sob story on how you can’t provide for your child in hopes for bigger tips. Which I heard worked. I usually tip above average but when I feel like I’m being taken advantage of or someone I know is being taken advantage of it pisses me off. Don’t take advantage of people’s kindness

My wife has cancer and is currently in during chemotherapy. Jonathan is a hairdresser there that helps women with chemo get their hair looking good. It's difficult work and Jonathan is a champion at this. I'm incredibly grateful for their staff their kind hospitality and they're friendly acceptance of us. This is above and beyond what I expect from any hairdresser. While I was there I was watching men and women getting styled and looking amazing. What a beautiful place in Albuquerque. I can't say enough

Tina Harrelson

Amy spent extra time with me and I was happy with my cut.


Everyone was really friendly. I was offered water, tea, and coffee right when I walked in. Cassandra who cut my hair came over to let me know she was going to be a little late. When I got in the chair she sat down and listened to what I wanted and she was also really easy to talk to. This salon also does eyebrow waxing/tinting and colors, which I am planning on coming back for. Everyone seemed concerned with making sure you are having a positive experience, which was nice. I would highly recommend this place and it is even really accessible since it is right off of a bicycle route.

rita menzies

Nice salon. Irene is amazing.

GR Smith

BE LEARY OF THIS PLACE...My wife just went in to get dreadlocks. We had to wait 3.5 months to get in because of ordering the dreadlocks (which took us 2 days on Amazon) and then the four hour appointment. The appointment went well, or so we thought. The appointment was not 4 hours but 7 hours, and $634 for the service, and then $247 for the dreadlocks, mind you the 30 locks we bought and received in 2 days were $56. They only had 30 locks ready for her appointment, so if we had not brought ours we would have driven 4 hours from El Paso for nothing. My wife has spent the last 2 days since her appointment in her bathroom fixing every lock she has. They are falling out and not staying in. Not worth the almost $900 plus the $56 for the locks we brought with us to save the appointment. You will not get what you pay for in this salon.

Alison Endicott

Ayse Rico is a hair genius. I will shave my head bald before I allow anyone else to touch my hair. End of story.

Maria Ramirez

Best place to get your haircut. I have had various stylist cut my hair due to my time availability and they all have been fantastic. Sienna did a phenomenal job with my color.

I had a color consultation yesterday with Jenn Allen and left a lock of hair for a strand test that she said would take "no more than 15 minutes", after which she'd call and let me know what my options were. That was at 4 PM. By 6 PM when the salon closed I still hadn't received a call (calling me on her cell after she'd finished everything also wasn't an option I guess). At 11 AM the next day I called and was told she'd "call me back". No call. At almost 2 PM I called again and was told she'd call me back "after lunch", which would be over "in no less than 15 minutes" ("15 minutes" seems to be some sort of default BS story at this place). An hour went by. No call. I'm now looking for another salon (there are quite a few others with high ratings in town) and will never have any cut or service at Square Root again. Sorry but it is ridiculous to say you'll call someone back "in 15 minutes"... FOR 24 HOURS.

Marley Russell

So glad I found this salon and my stylist Sienna after moving to abq

amy sillery

Siobhaen is the Best!!! Does fantastic shortcuts for me and I see the best color leave her chair all the time!

Patricio Herrera

Erin Perez

David Gatt takes good care of me. Always a satisfied customer. If you need a complicated cut and have ethnic hair like me and are willing to pay.. you won't be disappointed. Promise! Wont go anywhere else. Tell him I sent you!

Beautiful space with a great atmosphere; wonderful service. I went to Square Root when I wanted to cut my hair to donate but I didn't know what style I wanted since it had been a while since I had had short hair. The stylist was excellent at listening to what I wanted and didn't want and came up with a great style and executed it. The style looked great right away and lasted for a surprisingly long time before I needed to get it trimmed.

Carol ina

I highly recommend this place! It's the best salon I've been too. I made an appointment a few weeks prior because they do get booked really quickly. They require a deposit for color appointments. Once I arrived I was instantly and warmly greeted. I was offered water, tea, or coffee which they give to you in these cute mason jars. I had two hair appointments that day to fix the horrible things I did to my hair. (I tried to go platinum blonde)The first one was with Ayse who gave me the haircut I really wanted. She was very patient and knowledgeable as I showed her pictures of what I wanted. She gave me her opinion and showed me some pictures on her tablet. She was very precise and she really made sure that I was happy with my cut (which I love!). Ayse's assistant was very friendly and sweet. She gave me a shampoo and set me up with my next stylist. For my second appointment, it was a color correction with Lucia. I had previously tried to go platinum blonde myself and the results were less than desirable. I had banding, brassy tones, different blonde shades, and dark roots. Lucia was very honest with me letting me know that it would probably not be possible to reach platinum blonde that same day but she would try her best. Lucia is a color god! She was actually able to get my hair platinum blonde in one go. Throughout the whole session, she was just so attentive and was very helpful in giving me tips on how to keep my hair healthy. She kept checking my hair frequently and helped me reach the shade I wanted. The whole time I was in the salon, the super friendly staff kept checking in on me, offering drinks, and making sure I was doing well. This will definitely be my go-to salon from now on. The atmosphere is great, the front desk employees are very friendly, and the stylists are amazing. They are so worth the 3 hour drive!

Lori Lambelet

Amy is wonderful. Master of curly hair.

Luis A. Torres Jr.

Samantha Byrd-Fulbright

THE best. They can do it all! Meredith will give you the most bang for your buck. She's so talented, and she always knows what to do with my long, wavy hair.

Ian Alsobrook

Melissa McKinstry

Fabulous salon, interesting to watch the stylists and the customers creating interesting, beautiful styles. David Gatt is ranked one of Albuquerque's best for curly hair. Great color, friendly, professional, and hip. Right next to good Dim Sum, a day treat!

Frances Robinson

For quite a while I saw a "Level 1" -- and she turned out to be THE BEST short-hair stylist that I have ever had in ABQ (since I moved here 12-13 years ago). She suddenly left the salon. So I went to a "Level 6" -- paid $69+tax (and a $10 tip) -- and got a bad haircut. Today I went to a "Level 8" -- paid $113+tax (and a $20 tip) -- and it's the same bad haircut -- he only cleaned up the bad haircut from the Level 6 -- in fact, it was really a 'touch up'. He didn't listen to me at all! I am not a Prima Donna -- I would find this rather humorous if I weren't out over $200 and didn't look like Buster Brown. Not EVER going back. I AM DONE. Just goes to show: you don't always get what you pay for.

Autumnd Days

Great vibe, helpful and kind front desk, very unique establishment... I selected a level1 stylist for the cut I wanted and walked put with a completely different look ( my choice based off the way/ how short and choppy the cut was turning out) and though i can pull it off it has its inconsistencies from uneven elevation and VERY hard tension/ pulling while cutting. Even changed the natural movement of my hair... But upsetting because it takes a while to grow a few inches when you only have a few inches to work with

Outstanding service! You truly get what you pay for. It’s a wonderful atmosphere and the staff truly cares about the quality of service they provide.

Maria Rico

Judy Romero

Jessie was superb. I got a very nice style and hair cut. She has a warm personality and takes great care to do a good job. The service here is worth my time.

Adrienne Cherie Ricker

I was just traveling through and decided to visit based off the reviews. Meredith did a wonderful job! I have really fine hair and have had so many bad cuts in the past. My new layers look great, it feels wonderful, and I’m extremely happy. Great friendly service and extremely skilled stylists!

Audrey E

I got a haircut here. Very nice stylists, really cool ambiance. Definitely a great place to get any sort of hair work, in my opinion.

Sarah Castro

This place is unlike any salon I've ever been in the absolute best possible way. The friendliest, most caring staff with a really unique setup that facilitates and encourages learning, so they're always "up to something" AMAZING. They offer about a million services, but I'm a cut-and-(crazy)color type who has absolutely never been disappointed. Ayse is my stylist (SO - she's incredible) and she's always so helpful - tells me what's actually possible and flawlessly delivers on whatever whacky thing we come up with. I have complete faith that their other stylists are much the same and have had a number of them help with my hair, do my makeup, or just chat with because they're awesome. Best in ABQ without a doubt in my mind. Love, love, LOVE Square Root.

Vanessa Martin

Jessie did an amazing job on my color! She took such great care in going through photos with me to make sure we were on the same page and then color matching with swatches to be sure she achieved the perfect color, and she did! I have long fine hair which is fragile and becomes very tangled when wet, and Jessie was so careful not to damage my hair. I also got a trim from Anna who did an excellent job. I asked her not to take off much length and she did just that while still managing to clean it up and create beautiful long layers. Highly recommend going here!

genevieve lucero

This salon is amazing! Always a nice and clean environment. The people who work there are awesome! Even when I move, I will always come back to this salon!

Ashley Martin

Cool salon full of down to earth and talented people. Mariah (Level 2) blew me away with the amazing women's cut she gave me (I wear it boyishly short, so lots of room for error, but she was great!). Asked all the right questions, fantastic cut, very friendly and warm. Will definitely be back.

love this salon! i was new to albuquerque and not sure who to trust with my hair. took a chance on this relatively new place and don't regret it, won't be going anywhere else while i live in this city. jason smith did a great job with my rather drastic haircut.he listened patiently to my ideas and created a cut that continues to look good long after he cuts is shaped precisely from the inside out to flatter my head. anyway he is by far my favorite hairstylist i've ever gone to and i have tried lots. well worth the price....and the salon has a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere although it is certainly elegant. don't hesitate to check this place out!

Eva F

I usually cut my hair here and have always had a good experience except for today. I explained to the stylist (Madison) what I wanted and she seemed engaged at first but never followed through. She didn’t ask how I wanted my hair styled. I normally wear it curly and walked out with it straight. I should have said something at the salon but I didn’t. I got home and I was still perplexed by this whole situation. I called back and spoke to Taylor who seemed uncaring about my situation.


Awesome salon and great staff! I normally do not go to salons, but at the recommendations of friends I checked it out. Jason was extremely helpful listening to what I wanted, and the cut I received was the best haircut I have ever gotten. The salon overall has a great style and open feel to it. It was very clean and all of the staff I interacted with were helpful. Go check it out!

Ivet Euhus

Hi fellow humans, I usually forget to leave reviews for places i visit but this place deserves my remembering. I came in w/ vague desires of soft partial lights and Anna (pronounced On-a) was the stylist who did my hair. She is good! Also, there are high ceilings and cool lighting and the tea and water (yes water) was delicious.

They did a fantastic job on my's was my first time and they made me feel like family..

Awesome service! Siobhaen was super friendly, professional and talented. Best dread services in New Mexico. I will always be coming back! NICE WORK SIOBHAEN!!!!!!

Dalila Cecena

I feel like I paid for a hair cut that I didn't ask for...not thinking I will come here upsetting.*** Mgr offered his master stylist...big mistake for me to go back left me lopsided and did not deliver on what I requested either.

Zach Huntley

Kelly Coogan

Nice location and some good people there, but I couldn’t believe this last time I went. I went to cash out after getting my cut and highlights and I have never paid as much as this in my life. I was dumbfounded when they told me the price. If you go here, ask before you sit in the seat to get the work done.

Felicia justene

I really do not like posting reviews like this, but I did not have a good experience. I requested to have a grey balayage and ended up with a completely different style. I did not like the cut and the worst part is I left with PURPLE hair. When I mean purple I mean like grape purple, not a light purple a solid purple on my entire head. Luckily I have had this color before but it was FAR off of what I wanted. I had scheduled with a level 2 and was told she was good at what she does. Unfortunately she was 1 hour late to my appointment, then when they washed my hair out they had two hair stylists brushing my mangled hair out without proper de-tangling. She could not finish my appointment so she had to have someone else temporarily step in. I was there for over 6 hours. By the end of the appointment I just wanted to go home. So not only did I leave with the wrong color, and cut but my hair was utterly exhausted and dead. I had to pay $300 for a color correction at a different salon. I would suggest doing your research with your hair stylist before scheduling. Based on other reviews I thought my experience would have been 10X better. Beyond disappointed. Salon manager offered another free appointment but I did not trust getting my hair done by someone that caused that much damage the first time. I will not go back to this salon.

I have horrible depression and anxiety. I have gone a to three different salons in the last two and a half years trying to find someone I get comfortable working with. I found Square Root Salon on google and decided to visit to ask some questions. I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door. There were a couple of girls behind the counter and they both greeted me and offered to help. I told them I hadn't had a haircut since January and that I was nervous about finding a new stylist. They looked to see if anyone was available. Nina was available. She was recommended by one of the girls behind the counter, Nina cuts her hair too. I wasn't expecting that anyone would be available to cut my hair and it was a pleasant surprise. Nina was so kind and compassionate regarding my desires and expectations for my hair. She did exactly what I asked her to and I left the salon with a smile on my face for the first time since I can remember. Nina was patient and so very sweet and attentive. She offered me tea or water, as did the girls when I initially arrived. I was extremely satisfied with my experience. I will recommend Square Root Salon to friends and family. I already made an appointment for future hair maintenance. Thank you so much Nina!!

Helene Kiecolt

Excellent trained stylists and friendly reception.

creeper ramirez

They did a great job on my son before he went to school

Colleen Hill

Merideth is absolutely amazing!! I had her do updo's for engagement photos and my wedding. She was able to create amazing updo's with braids, twists..whatever the girls envisioned. All of my bridesmaids and I were utterly impressed and each girl had exactly what they wanted or better. She is truly an artist. I would HIGHLY recommend her!!


Cannot rave enough about this place. Meredith was my color stylist and did a phenomenal job of getting my hair to a perfect platinum white color, even though I know it was a challenge because of the multiple tones in my hair. Jason and Ayse also did a great job of helping us out along the way. I'm so excited to go in for my next appointment because of the amazing customer service I received. I get compliments on my color every day now. Thank you guys for the great job you did!!! Definitely recommending this salon to all of my friends and family.

The best place in town for curly hair.

Love the atmosphere and the staff. Coveted parking lot in downtown location.

Jolee Suddock

I recently had an appointment with Jen A. and I’m just in love with my cut! She spent time talking to me before we started about what I wanted and had a lot of great suggestions as well. The end result was better than I was expecting, and I’ve had a lot of compliments. It’s well worth the price. I will be going back for a color soon. Aside from the cut, the atmosphere of the place is fantastic, they serve delicious tea, and everyone was very friendly. If I had to complain about something, it’d just be that the tip has to be given in cash. They let me know when I made my appointment, but I don’t carry cash and I forgot to grab some before I got there. I think it’d be helpful if they had an atm there, but there is a bank across the street. That being said, it’s still a five star salon!

Jelly Honey

This salon is a gem! Siobhaen does a FABULOUS job on all things from color to cuts to dreads and braiding. Natural or bright, this is your girl! She will treat your right and bring out a new you! Highly recommend, 5+ years experience, friendly and knowledgeable. I walked away feeling like my hair was looking magical and my spirits were lifted:) LOVE the salon, love the energy, love the people!

Victoria Nagel

Siobhaen did an amazing job on my hair! I love the color and cut, and the style was perfect for the wedding I was in! She gave a great head and shoulder massage at the beginning and then a hand massage while we waited for my dye to finish. She's personable, professional, and easy to talk with! I would recommend her for any type of hair needs! My hair is thick and difficult and she still did an incredible job on it!

I had nearly given up hope after years searching for a salon that could cater to my own unique style and taste. Then enter Square Root Salon on 3rd street; located right in the heart of Albuquerque. A salons appearance and attitude usually give off a certain vibe as what type of patrons they usually cater to. Square Root caters to my type: unique, different, daring, artistic, young, etc. When I wanted to bleach the ends of my long dark hair ultra light in an effort to capture the ubiquitous youth/grey look. The fine people at Square Root suggested I schedule a consolation, and that's just what I did. This place gets busy and scheduling either a consolation and/or hair appointment can sometimes set you off as far as several weeks; especially if preferring to work with a particular stylist. Despite this, the wait is in my opinion worth it. When I arrived on Tuesday morning for my hair color appointment, I was surprised to learn that there had been a mix-up in scheduling with somebody who had a very similar name to mine. Long story short, the salon couldn't get me in that day, but being both professional and courteous, they immediately rescheduled me for the following day. Something I truly appreciated, as I feared in having to wait an additional two weeks. When the big day actually came, I would be well taken care of. In the past, other salons have told me that grey look was out of my reach due to my naturally dark hair. Square proved that assertion false as they were finally able to bestow me with the look I had been chasing for so long. That said, Square Root personified every ideal quality a salon should have during my time there: professional, polite, skilled, and artistic. I definitely look forward to returning for when the time rolls around again. A bit pricy, but hey, don't go cheap when it comes to your do. Also, be aware that the pricing varies considerably depending on what level stylist you get. All of incredibly skilled, but the greater the experience, the greater the cost.

Sunny Bunny

Terrible! I would never waste my time or money coming here again! The place was clean and nice design but THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE. I have platinum blonde hair and needed my black roots touched up. After my haircut I changed stylist to get my hair bleached. I was left in the chair longer then it should have been and a third stylist came over to check on me. The color didn't match afterwards and the stylists was okay with my leaving with wet hair. Even one of the owners didn't see a problem with this. I've gone to professional salons before and have never left with my hair wet. I was in this salon for at least four hours. It doesn't take four hours to get a cut bleach and toner done and there is no reason for me to be leaving with soaking wet hair from a "professional salon". Honestly I don't even want to give them this one star.

Jaclynn Dillinger

I went here to have my hair cut and colored with Magan. It turned out sort of okay and knowing that my request was difficult (going from red to brown with blonde ombré) I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. One side of my hair was much more blonde than the other and was probably left in longer than necessary but I decided to just deal with it and give her a second chance. The second time I went she insisted she needed to add more blonde even though that was not what I had asked for. I ended up being there for over 5 hours after she turned my hair green and even tried to hide it by turning off the light next to us. One of the owners had to help her fix it back to blonde and all of the chemicals ended up ruining my hair. Then I decided hey I'll just see another hairstylist and only get a cut. Another mistake. This lady was supposed to be more "experienced" (overpriced) and I was not happy with the cut at all, she didn't listen to anything I asked for. This looked like an awesome place and reviews were promising but I will never come back here again.

Took my 10 year old daughter here to get her hair cut! She’s been begging to cut her hair and I finally caved! We were scheduled with another stylist that didn’t have enough time to see my daughter. Which was fine, I understand. Well, I must say Mariah did not disappoint! She did an amazing job talking and listening to my daughter! I couldn’t have been more pleased as a mother! I just stepped back and watched them both make magic happen! And boy did magic happen!! Aubrie and I both are so overly happy with her hair cut and style! In Aubrie’s words “oh, Mariah is my forever stylist” Lol. It’s pretty hard to please my 10 year old and she mastered just that! Thank you all so much!

Jen A gave me the BEST haircut I have ever received! I have long curly hair and recently embraced the curls so have never gotten a haircut with my curl in mind before. She literally sat down with me and we talked about my hair goals and routine before she got the scissors out. She gave me recommendations on products and wash frequency to help with the dryness I've been dealing with since moving to the desert. We had a pleasant conversation and I was just blown away by the amazing service I received from her start to finish. The way she cut my hair and the treatment she did has the curls revived and bouncy again. I feel like a whole new woman and can't stop admiring my new 'do! Here's a before and after of the cut. It's such a good feeling to have found such a talented stylist. THANK YOU JEN! Can't wait to see you again!

Superb relaxed venue for fine hair work. I was pleased with the ambiance and the attentiveness of the staff walking into their premises. Good price and a free hair touch up between cuts! Jesse listened to what I wanted got to it and the result was the best I've had in 15 cuts. Excellent talent!

I've been coming here almost 10 years now, and I'm not going anywhere else EVER! Whatever you want done with your hair, they do it excellently!

Handsdown the best place to get a longlasting, customized, amazing haircut for a guy. Believe me, I've tried all the places in town and left other places disappointed. Not at Square Root...they are friendly and most importantly they really know their craft. David Gatt is my hair guy!

I have been going to Square Root Salon for the past year and a half, and in that time I have gone shorter, grown my hair out, changed styles, and I always got the results I wanted. I have curly hair, and Irene always cuts it dry, then washes it after, so she can see exactly how her cuts work with the curl of my hair. She has given me great advice for how to deal with the dry air in Albuquerque, and how it affects my hair. I've never been pressured to buy additional services or products, and I always enjoy the mellow atmosphere in the salon.
