Mary Mahoney

My first visit and I loved it! I had a cut and color with Marissa and she was fabulous. She counseled me on a new hair style that worked out beautifully. Made my next appointment before I left. Hair products are really good too!

Taylor Pinne

I was not impressed with this salon. We had our hair done for a wedding and after paying close to 400, we could have done a better job ourselves.

Forrest Samuels

Have a beer and get a great cut.

Ananda West is hands down the best salon I've even been to. All of the stylists are very talented and friendly. I love that they call take continuing education so seriously. You can definitely tell in the quality of work. Ronnie was able to get my hair the exact shade of red that I wanted. The atmosphere is great too! Very artsy and interesting and I love that they offer beer, wine and coffee. All around great place!

Abby Landry

My haircut is my treat to myself. Ananda West has always, ALWAYS provided excellent customer service and I'm never dissatisfied with my haircut. I can tell Charlotte to give me a different look and have no idea what. she executes a modern, fitting look every time. I would recommend them to anyone. And I prefer the west location because the parking is so easy.

Kama Raymer

From the very first phone call to Ananda Hair Studio I have LOVED it. They matched me with Laura Anderson based on my hair needs/wants...and let's just say I love her:) I recommend her to people all the time! Everyone I've interacted with have been exceptional! The atmosphere is artsy and relaxing and I look forward to my appointments every month!

Jennifer Ramming

Ananda West is perfection. Staff is professional, warm, and welcoming (they always greet me by name), great products, and aesthetic abundance. Parking is super easy and the creative energy is palpable in the surrounding River Arts District. I love watching the trains go by, while sipping tea and being expertly styled.

Shania Scott

My first time getting my hair done there and Ari did such an amazing job! The people that work there are just awesome. It’s a great environment.

Samantha Shonka

Charlotte did such an amazing job on my wedding hair and Jonathan with my makeup, as well my bridal party! Charlotte turned my vision into reality and was so fun to chat with along the way. The space is very Asheville, very cool, and the staff easily accommodated us when we brought in lunch and champagne. Would highly recommend! (Pic is from my trial, waiting on day-of pics)

Taylor Townsend

All of the stylist and staff are amazing! Moira is my gal, and she kills the balayage game. She’s super talented and sweet as can be. Thanks for taking great care of me every time I come in Moira!

Eric Scheider


Miss Boman

Jim Mitchell

My wife and I get great haircuts here. Great service, coffee wine or beer always offered upon arrival. Text message reminders are sent days before your appointment. Sara Ash is our girl and the force is strong with her!

Ana Broussard

Charlotte is amazing!

David Johnston

jamie mckinney

Warming, welcoming, creative staff. Kirsten has been my hair stylist for almost 2 years, and is super thoughtful, kind, and honest. I highly recommend Ananda west.

Kaylee Hazelman

Sam Evans

Thank you, Sarah Barnwell, for a great haircut! I was nervous about it because I've always cut my own hair (badly, but the devil you know...). Anyway, Sarah was patient, personable, and professional, and my hair looks great and feels great. Highly recommend!

Dr. Leslie B. Newman

Always responsive and practiced at customer-first-service! Love them.

Jennifer DeVirgiliis

Kim has been cutting my hair for years. I would always recommend her. It's a cool, comfy environment. They have tea and coffee and magazines in their waiting area. Gps doesn't take you to the right place though but the receptionist was super nice when I called and was lost. GPS says it's near the round about, but it's next to wedge brewing in that big parking lot. It's super nice that they have their own parking. All the quality of downtown ananda but a way more convenient location. And they have student discounts on Monday and Wednesday!

Katherine Lloyd

Awesome place & great service!!

Julie Bowers

Marshall Siler

Ananda West is a great location and my haircuts there with Hannah have always gone smoothly with tremendous results. I highly recommend you check them out!

Lauren Vaught

I followed Corina, Master Stylist from the downtown location to the RAD! This west location is mellow, funky and fun, always buzzing with energy. My gal, Corina is extremely talented, fun to talk with, and a great listener!

carolyn sawyer

ananda west is my sanctuary - i can know that i can go there, be treated with respect and fun; hair care is tops from all the staff-how do i know? I wear mine and see all the others. The very best part though is that a client (me) is NEVER CONFRONTED with whatever controversies (if there are any) /conflicts go on behind the SCENE. Carolyn Sawyer

Carol Douglas

Wouldn't go anywhere else!

Anna Young

Ananda West has been a great experience! The setting, the location, the available parking, the friendly faces I see when I first walk in at the reception desk, the always thought-provoking art on the walls...the complimentary wine doesn't hurt either...but most of all, Ronnie G. Ronnie has, hands down, been the most extraordinary stylist I've experienced. I put my hair in his hands and he made it beautiful.

Alisa E

One of the best haircuts I've had. Teryn was knowledgeable and really knew how to work with my wavy hair for the best cut. I only wished I lived closer so I could make her my regular hair stylist! In addition they have some wonderful products that have made my hair feel amazing and the salon smells incredible!

Tara Williams

I Really do not like having to call a stylist out on his work. I would much rather that the salon do the right thing and refund my money. As you will see in the screenshots they are refusing. I paid 65.00 for a cut in April 8 at west location. I brought a picture, had a consultation and clearly agreed on a cut with the stylist. See pictures to see how it turned out. Huge chunks of hair gone from my head....2 inch difference between layers with noticable cut marks. 2-3 inch difference in left and right side of my head. Not just a bad haircut...we have all had those. But literally butchered my hair. *Google won't let me upload photos but I will figure out how to upload on other review sites and share. Trust me when I say that my hair is butchered. The salon refuses a reund but will gladly 'fix' it. I wouldn't let anyone in that salon near my hair again. Don't be fooled by their term 'master stylist' it means nothing. Just more pretentious facade from Ananda

David Yan

First time I've been satisfied with a haircut in many years.

Colette Williams

I love this salon. Everyone is kind and welcoming but I have stuck with Ari since my first cut with her. She is very friendly and professional and gives me exactly what I want each time. I always leave happy. Thank you Ari and team!

Carl Woermann


Danielle Beauchamp

Kristen is AMAZING!!

Lynn Harmon

My stylist, Laura, always does a fantastic job cutting my hair. She also happens to be an extraordinary human being and I love our convos while she is working her magic! The front desk is always friendly and polite and the atmosphere relaxed and comfy. Top notch place

Rodrigo Afanador

George Fleming

I've been going to Ananda for over 12 years - downtown and River Arts District. Fantastic stylists, great and friendly staff, very cool and relaxing atmosphere. Definitely an experience more than getting a cut!

Robert Cohen

Ari is great. There's a bit of a drive down a gravel road/parking lot but it's worth it. Nice location down by the river in the River Arts District

Claire Webb

Love it!

Nino Espinoza

Shannon Brode

This is an okay salon. The fees you pay support its trendy-appeal. I went through 2 stylists who both left. My 3rd stylist was nice, but after 2 cuts I'm pretty sure she was not listening to what I wanted. I ended up with hair cuts that I had to wait weeks until I was comfortable with my hair again. I waited over a year to have my hair cut again and have since found a smaller salon that caters to me, not one stylists idea of me.

Danielle Varela

Best hair cut I've ever gotten! On the pricey side but worth it

Elisha Fort

Best salon in Asheville! I have the best stylist, Ronnie! Ronnie always takes the time to listen to what I want and executes beautifully! Great precision cuts! Very talented staff! Always have a wonderful experience and some fun! They are friendly and work well with kids as well! Perfect for the whole family! The receptionist are very friendly and helpful too!!

Jennifer lynn

Chad Mitchell

Both locations have supplied me with great hair even with slowly diminishing levels of it. Moira in particular is awesome and provides fantastic service, even for sometimes-difficult clients such as myself. Highly recommended.

Jason Greer

Bre Powers is a rock star!! My wife was referred to Bre by a work colleague and loved her visit with her. On my wife's second visit she had our 4 year old son with her and Bre graciously worked a cut in for him as well (kid's cut $25). My wife came home and said I, "I made an appointment for you with Bre" (the subtle suggestion that I needed to get my hair cut). I have only been once but Bre is my Asheville stylist, hands down! Not only is Bre great, but the staff is awesome and welcoming as well. I went early so I am glad they didn't offer me a beer, but they did offer coffee in a chic (what looked like hand made) coffee cup :-) And yes wine/ beer for clients of age are offered during the days/ evenings. Cool vibe, great location (one of two in town). Ladies (cause I know the guys aren't reading these)... if you want your fellas to get a great cut for a reasonable price ($35), hook him up with Bre. (prices listed are subject to change... of course :-) Thanks for reading and remember to let me know if what I shared was helpful with a thumbs up!

Stephanie Velez

If I could give zero I would. One bad experience ruins it all. I went in with blonde hair. I wanted to add light brown to the blonde mixture. I came out COMPLETELY a dark brunette. And my natural is obviously still showing a lot on top and its lighter. Aslo have extremely light blonde highlights. Some yellowed. I got my hair done 5 days ago. I now wished I had spoken to a manager about the situation. So now I have 4 different colors in my hair. And the bottom looks like a skunk. Thanks for ruining my self confidence until I can get it redone again ELSEWHERE.

Matt Self

they make me pretty, so very pretty.

Erin Cox

Becky Cannon

Best haircut ever

Alex Rike

Laura is top notch, and I always enjoy my experience at Ananda West. Great salon and location, cool staff, good environment. I count it as a great haircut and a way to treat myself.

I've been getting my hair cut here for more than 5 years and really love the experience - especially the past year with stylist Sara Ashley. She really listens to what you want and she gets it right! I've referred four people to her since I started and they're all just as thrilled.

Virginia Lancianese

J D Glenn

Hannah is AWESOME!!!! Spa day meets hanging out with friend meets artist at work! LOVE AnandaWest!

Heather Harmon

Over the past 3 years I'd been bouncing around Asheville stylists, always with mediocre results. I made my first appointment with Hanna a few months ago and she's amazing! I usually go after work, and the whole crew makes me feel welcome... like meeting friends at a bar after a long day. The hair cut is perfect the first time (never needs to be fixed) and I'm always showered with compliments from coworkers and friends. I'm so satisfied with the cuts that my next appointment includes a color, which I've NEVER been comfortable spending the money on... until now. Thanks bunches, Ananda West crew!! :D

Jennifer Ware

I love all my services at Ananda West. The staff is super friendly. Shane has been doing my cut and highlights exclusively for the last two years. I highly recommend him. Occasionally my daughter get a cut as well and Shane is always up to the challenge of her long locks!

Zeek Seseika

Followed my wife to the doors Ananda seven years ago...have NOT had a poor cut! I have stayed with my wifes favorite,Charlotte(imo da Bestest) and just recently changed up my style and Wallah! Charlotte just makes me look great! Oh! Charlotte also helps my wife to look as HOT as the day I met her...

Alex Brown

Great stylists and a wonderful atmosphere.

Lynnea E Ekstrom

Judith Barkan

Great stylists, stimulating environment, and always a wonderful client experience. Best colorist I've ever had too (and I am fussy!). Thanks, Ananda West!

Brittany Bolger

I could never get my blonde quite right until Moira did my hair. She is attentive, kind, and very talented at what she does! Ananda is a clean, professional, and relaxing salon. I wholeheartedly recommend Ananda, and I can’t wait to come back!!

Kelsey Winterbottom

The front desk staff are always sweet and helpful, and the studio is beautiful with a different series of local art on the walls each month. I have been to Hannah three times now, and each time she is carefully attentive to exactly what I want. I would recommend this studio to anyone looking for a high quality hair cut or color!

William Buddenberg

I was well taken care of here when I decided I needed blue hair. Keelin helped me figure out what I wanted besides "blue hair" and made the lengthy process very pleasant. She hooked me up with a good haircut to boot. I'll be returning every 6 weeks to do my roots!

Casey Harrell

Erica Hill

Very welcoming and really talented stylists!

Brady F

Love it here. I started seeing Sarah Barnwell as a random walk-in and have been going back regularly for over a year now.

Michael Dulken

Catherine Cole

Bethany Buchanan

Michele is great, and I cannot thank her enough for the great experience and my beautiful fall hair color!

Elaine Smith

I always look forward to my appointment here. Treated well from the moment you walk in until you check out. Very pleased with my hair stylist, Keelin! Love my super short cut. Parking is easy and I can visit a gallery or two and get a glass of wine at the District Wine Bar when I'm done.

Chris Peterson

Abigaile Ortiz

I have never had a bad experience at Ananda! My last two cuts and color from Kimberly at Ananda west were the best though! She understood exactly what I wanted and gave me a very versatile cut. Everyone at Ananda is very warm and welcoming. On my last visit I had an amazing shampoo and scalp massage from Ari that left me super relaxed. I highly recommend them!

I have my gray roots colored and a haircut every 4 weeks so after I moved here I tried Ananda West. The first visit went well, I was upgraded and up- charged to a stylist. The meet and great went okay I told her my hair tends to bleach out in the summer and my former stylist pulled some color through once in a while. I also told her I always try to heed the advice of my stylist, that turned out to be a mistake, So 2nd visit she pulls color through to eliminate too much blond (no up-charge). 3rd visit she said "I want to try something with the color", okay (so the trust, right?) That was a BIG mistake! ($50. extra) She added highlights, hmmm since you just toned down my sun highlights, why add them?? Money I guess, There was no mention of the word "highlight", there was no discussion of cost or how long highlights would take to grow out. Maybe I was just due for a bigger bill. I have waited 8 months to post because I didn't want to post angry, but turns out I still am.

Used to live in A'ville & moved away. This month, I made a 4hr round trip to get a hair cut at Ananda. They are that good. A very skilled and talented group of friendly stylists.

Chris Ernst

Great staff and even better hair cut!

Michel Baudouin

Jennifer mehta

Wow horrible waste of time

Ashley W

I had the most AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER at Ananda West yesterday! I recently moved and was terrified to try someone new for my hair! I never thought I'd happen to end up with someone that gave me the best cut and color I have ever had!! That incredible someone is Shane Boone!! I have never been so happy with my hair!! To top it off, after my appointment, I had 2 people at the store ask me who does my hair. Not only is Shane wonderful with hair, he also so kind, so genuine, so fun and he actually takes time with his clients and is able to create exactly what you are looking for. His assistant, Kris, was an absolute doll as well and took superior care of me. I've probably rambled on too long now but I am just so impressed with the outcome of my hair and the service I received yesterday! If you are looking for a place to get your hair've found it!! I will be a lifelong customer because of Shane and Kris! Thank you both for your expertise and hospitality! It was truly unparalleled!!

Lori Samolyk

Britney provides excellent balayage, sun-kissed highlights! The location is convenient, with great parking, a chill environment and refreshments. Plus you're surrounded by an amazing constantly-changing art gallery. Just book it, it's worth it.

Wonderful experience! Marissa is an amazing stylist. Recommend highly !!!

Dottie Frailey

Ananda is awesome. I got six inches cut off and I’m in love with my haircut. My stylist was friendly and knowledgeable. My hair is soft and shiny after. The salon is gorgeous and modern too. I’ll never go anywhere else!

Sera Erlys Black

Sarah Resnick

Meghann Turnbull

I have always had a good haircut and good experience and have used several different stylists. Consistently good!

Heather Bertch

I had my hair cut with Michelle today for the first time. It’s always a deep relief and joy to find a stylist who knows exactly what to do to give you what you imagine and the skills to make it even better. She was kind and easy to talk to. I’m so happy with my hair and the full experience.

Emily Heilbraun

Corrective color session with Kimberly: I can't say enough good things about the experience. I didn't realize how bad the "before" was until the "after". Can't wait to go back for a cut! -Emily

Adrienne Pomeroy

Corina listened to my hair backstory attentively and took time to share her knowledge and assessment of my hair. She gave me a great cut and I can’t wait to see what she does with the color in a few weeks!


I am OBESSED with my new hair. Kaleen is super direct and efficient. She got my dark hair into sliver in one session when I was expecting at least 2 session. The salon is next to a brewery, The Wedge, so if you happen to have some wait time, it's pretty convenient ;)

Chris Cavanaugh

Kelsey Woodburn

Cynthia Madden

My first impression was outstanding! I was greeted as soon as I walked into the salon with a friendly smile and an offer of several complimentary beverages. My new stylist, Kendall, was genuine and attentive! He did not rush me through our initial consultation and made me feel totally comfortable. I absolutely loved my cut and style! Kendall really listened to my concerns and desires for a new updated style and he was spot on with the style that we decided on. I HIGHLY recommend scheduling your next haircut and style with Kendall!

Nichole Calderaro

Ananda is the best! I love going to west because it is smaller and quiter, and they can usually see you faster than at the downtown location. I know many of the stylist work both locations; they always do phenominal work. I love the feel and the music there. And you can walk to resturants/bars/art galleries/ect. to show off your hair afterward!

Tiffany Shellogg

I absolutely love it here and they use Davines color!!!

Donna Kay

Awesome area of Asheville, when I was done getting my hair done, I caught a local band outside and had a brew from the brewery next door. The salon (they have 2 locations) is just the best. They take the time and give the best attention to their clients.

Natalie Cox

I highly recommend this salon, everyone is super friendly and welcoming, plus they have incredible smelling hair products! Sara Ashlee did an AMAZING job with my hair! I showed her a few pictures of what type of summery blonde look I was going for and she absolutely nailed it! Thanks Sara Ashlee, love my shiny new look!!
