REVIEWS OF Twisted Scizzors Salon IN North Carolina

Jeff Conklin

Great experience all around. Amber took her time and I'm very happy with my haircut.

Ann Goodwin

Erin Arauz

Had a wonderful first experience with Jenny. I had a lot of length cut off and she listened to what I had in mind for my hair and made it happen. So happy with my experience and will be going back! Btw the picture is out of date. It has been updated!

Lisa F

Excellent hair cut by Linsey as usual! It's always a pleasure being at Twisted Scizzors, too. Everyone's friendly and front desk is competent!

Elexia Sly

Something is going on here. I called for a price quote to put a little color on my 5 year old's ends. She's blonde naturally. They said it would be $100.00 per hour and that it's a 2 hour minimum. I explained her age and hair color and exactly what I wanted. They expect me to believe it's $220.00 to put something on her hair that will last 5-10 washes. Literally down the street, another salon guffawed at that price and is doing it for $50.00. Cut and style included. Beware.

Holly Haney

I love Renee!!! She has been doing my hair for over a year and I get so many compliments on the color and cut! She has great suggestions and has really helped get my hair back to being healthy again! I highly recommend her if you are looking for a color/cut or really looking for a new look!

Laura Carpenter

Love the service

Wisdom Campbell

These guys are amazing! Ashley W always does a spectacular job with my hair color; I can give her a color scheme and let her run with it, no matter what it comes out great! Everyone is super friendly and the atmosphere is always fun.

Amanda is AWESOME! Not only was she voted one of the country's TOP HAIR STYLIST (for good reason, best HAIRCUT & COLOR I've ever received & I've had a bunch of them) but she supports BOB'S BUDDIES & THE PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION! She has "Cut-A-Thons" at the salon & her & her wonderful staff offer haircuts at a discounted price & donates all the money to Bob's Buddies which 100% of that money goes strictly to RESEARCH PEDIATRIC BRAIN TUMORS! Highly recommend her & her salon! ☺

Cassandra Hess

Renee did an amazing job on my cut. She followed exactly what I asked for. I knew I wanted it dyed as well but wasn't sure what I wanted. She picked the colors and I'm so happy with the results! Thanks for knowing your job and doing it well. It made me feel amazing showing up to my holiday party! And I got tons of great comments. Thank you!

debby Temmermand

Ashley Weldner is an amazing artist! I brought my granddaughter in to have her hair colored pink and blue and Ashley made her look like a rock star! She is thrilled with the look and so am I. I highly recommend Ashley and Twisted Scizzors Salon.

Trevor Dalton

I got a haircut from Amber and she did an excellent job. Made me look like Ryan Gosling!

Angela Nelson

They do great work here and are always making sure the customer leaves satisfied!

***UPDATE*** The manager was very helpful and reached out to have me come back so they could make things right. She had Meridith correct my hair. They were very nice and Meridith did a great job my hair looks good now and I will continue to go to this salon but will be certain to make sure I am always scheduled with Meredith. I have been cutting and dying my own hair for most of my life because I had never had a good Salon experience. So I saw this place and all the great reviews in the pictures on Facebook and I thought let me give them a try. I had rather long hair almost Midway down my back and it was blond perhaps too yellow and brassy but it was blond. I called and was told I needed to come in for a consultation with a specific stylist the next morning but by the time I got there he apparently had quit and I was given to a different person. I filled out a lot of paperwork that nobody used and it was left laying on the counter. I explained that the reason I keep redying my entire hair which has caused a lot of damage at the ends was because I couldn't deal with the roots being dark and I was looking for a solution that would allow me to stop having to do the regular dying so that my hair could heal. I came back in a few days later for my appointment and I had to fill out the paperwork again because no one put it in the system . Absolutely nothing that was spoken about at the consultation occurred during the appointment. I mentioned at the consultation and during the appointment that I do not look good with short hair and I understood some damaged ends had to come off but I needed it to at least be laying on my shoulders. The Stylist talked about long layers and at the consultation he talked about doing a bayalage technique to resolve my problem with having to re-dye due to roots. After looking at several pictures of what this technique looked like I thought yeah I could do that. 4 hours at this salon and what I have is a very blunt haircut that is barely at my shoulders so now we can't cut anything else in to give it an actual style because it would be way too short. And I literally look like exactly what I went there to avoid and that is that at some point I dyed my hair blond and then went for a year without dying or touching it up. The entire top half of my hair is an ugly dark brown and the entire bottom half of my hair is somewhere between a bleeding Gray and blond there is no blending it looks like I literally just haven't had my roots touched up in over a year and to make matters worse now my hair is all wacked off with no Style. I'm now wondering if most of the Facebook pictures are actually pictures that are copied from some hairstyle magazine website. People can go to Fantastic Sams and get some person who literally just walked out of the Community College yesterday for 45 bucks and have hair that looks better than mine does right now. The more I look at my hair the angrier I get. I'm going to upload a photo of it to Google and hopefully it will show in the photos after people read this review...because trust me I am not exaggerating when I tell you how BAD this so called bayalage looks.

Sonia Hussain

Years and years of putting my thick, curly head of hair at the mercy of many, many, many hair stylists across the U.S., I’ve NEVER had such an incredible and exceptional experience as I had with Meredith and Ashley R. at Twisted Scissors. Seriously ladies, I am not kidding. Meredith did a fabulous job with my curly haircut. My hair tends to flatten out at the top and get bushy at the bottom. It all depends on the degree of humidity influencing the behavior of my 2b/2c curls. Meredith gave me subtle extra layers at the top and OMG, did that make a difference! No other hair stylist was ever able to understand what I had wanted but if they did, they would give me choppy layers. Now to Ashley R.....I have resistant gray. She knew the perfect color to use to hide my grays. Not only that, but she gave me the best balayage ever! I’ve been to other salons in NC and have had a few balayage hair colorings so I know what to compare to. I kid you not, Ashley R. did everything right and beautifully with the perfect color and technique. Thank you both for your excellent service, commitment, dedication and hard work, in making ‘us’ all look and feel beautiful!

Clayton Chappell is awesome! He really knows his stuff. He not only fixed and gave me great color and highlights....he also knows how to cut long layers. That is an art in itself. I have tried several beauticians since I moved to North Carolina. I am so happy to have discovered Clay. And I can't say enough for how patient he was in working with me. He was great! Thank you Clay!

Kris Witosky

I love Twisted Scissors. The stylist are so much fun but more importantly skilled professionals. They are color magicians. Since there is so much experience in this salon the can handle all kinds of hair and requests. I started going to them because they understood the "issues" with curly hair and stayed with them now for almost 7 years because of their attitude and knowledge.

Linda Miller

One of the best hair color/cut experiences ever! Tony is a gem -- from the time he greeted me with a great smile and handshake, he was so professional and personable. I showed him a picture of the style and color I desired for my hair....he took one look and said "Oh, I know exactly what you want." He was efficient, attentive, lively, and very knowledgeable about the products I needed for much needed hair repair. Thank you Tony for a great experience. I love my hair! See you in a month!

Katelyn Schick

Love this place! I don't go anywhere else to get my hair done. Renee does a fantastic job and I couldn't be happier :)

Katelyn Adams

This was my first time coming to this salon. I wanted a big change with my hair, both cut and color, so I was a bit nervous. I had the pleasure to have Edward as my stylist. He did an AMAZING job! He knew exactly what I was going for. Can’t wait for my next appointment!

Amelia Hayward

Sonjia never ever fails me, everybody at TS is amazing !

Liliana Castro

Ashley R. Is one of the best stylists to have ever done my hair. She is spot on when I ask her for balayage, hair cut and style. She is very knowledgeable, professional and always courteous. Highly recommended!!!!

Misty Landrum

Amanda has been my stylist for over a decade, and there is a reason I've stuck with her. She has seen my hair through short, medium, long, straight, curly, highlighted, lowlighted, pregnant, and "experimental" stages. I love her work, she is excellent at working with me to achieve the look I'm going after, and she always treats her staff well. Going for my cut and color is like a mini-vacation for me, and I always feel fantastic when I walk out of her salon!

sumit sharma

Not worth the $$

Chiara Renella-Brooks

Renee does my hair and she is amazing! She listens to what I'm looking for and Goes over it with me and the end results are exactly what I wanted. I have dark hair and she's been the only one that can blend highlights where it looks natural!

Erin Pierce

Alyssa did a great job on my hair, and she was super sweet! The salon is beautiful, and the girls at the front desk were very welcoming and friendly! You should definitely go to Alyssa for your next haircut!

Nicole Oglesby

Lila Bednar

Fabulous as always!

Sruthy Binu

I used to visit twisted scissos from last 2 years for me and my daughter and I liked them . But recently I went there for my hair color and they did very badly. The hair looks the same after the hair color and I will not recomend this place.

Sean Dennelly

Always had a great experience with Twisted Scissors in the past, excellent front desk staff and great stylists. However my last experience after they changed locations will mean I won't be going back there. Front desk staff did an extremely poor job of communicating with me about my appointment and generally did not seem to know how to handle the situation well. If you value good customer service I would look elsewhere to get your hair cut.

isidoro pérez de tudela guirao

Emre is great and Twisted Scizzors our place for sure. He is great with our son and we love his work as well.

Caroline White

I got my hair cut with highlights added (with Renee). I had never dyed my hair before and she did a great job at explaining everything and making the highlights look subtle (as I wanted). The haircut was amazing as well! Best one I have received in a long time! Will definitely be coming back!

Sasha Mackey

Robin is amazing! She took great care of me, listened to everything I wanted, and gave me a fantastic cut and color!

Kristen Murphy

Best hair salon in triangle! Their new location is stunning. Complementary wine and wax treatment for your hands. My haircut is perfect every time I go no matter what stylist I use. I’ve tried 6 other salons in the triangle- from Durham to North Raleigh, and this is by far my favorite and the most consistent.

Patricia Kennison

Amber is awesome! She did my cut, color and lowlights. I have never seen anyone take such care and be some particular in doing my hair. She is the only person I let do my hair now!

Larry VanBuhler

Perfect place for a haircut and color.

Robert Rogier

I love the new salon. Three weeks ago was my first time to go since they moved. The difference is night and day. While the stylist that cut my hair has been extremely good each time I've seen him, the old salon always felt cluttered and cramped. The new salon is spacious, bright, inviting, and comfortable. Gone are the dark colored walls (which made the old salon feel that much more cramped), the waiting area has been moved to the front of the salon and is a nice place to sit and relax before your appointment. If you haven't been singe they were on Hwy-55, give them another chance.

Rebecca Fisher

Great service! Ed did my cut and was wonderful! Great for all members of the family

Alessia Ghirardello

I am Ashley R. customer and she has always been great. I am doing highlights and was hard at the beginning because i am from Italy and wasn’t easy for her to catch the right tone and color for me, but she did and she did great! I have sent some friends to her and everyone was happy after the service. Also she is always available to “squeeze me in” when i can’t match with time and days offered. Overall, all the Staff is nice and available to help and i can’t wait to see the new location were they are going to move. See you soon! Alessia G.

Claire Fiette

Ashley R always does a FANTASTIC job cutting my hair! After have bad experiences at other places, I decided to give this place a try. The salon has a great vibe! The prices are a little higher, but it's well worth it. Ashley was sweet, very professional, and communicated well with me. As someone with anxiety, it was a blessing to feel so comfortable voicing what I wanted and liked. I've had her twice so far and am planning on sticking with her.

Harini Narayanan

Had a great hair cut and styling experience with Sonya. Friendly staff. Just got what I wanted. Will definitely go back.


guess they delete the negative reviews they get. BEWARE OF THIS PLACE. They have no clue what they are doing and are extremely over priced.

Kaylin M

Twisted Svizzors is an awesome hair salon that anyone in the area should check out. I have been with three different stylist there and they were all Fantadric. However, Renee has to be my favorite and the one I go to most. She is extremely knowable, kind, generous and always leaves me feeling like a million bucks. Whether you are looking to experiment with some color, get fancied up for an occasion or go for a simple trim, if you have Renee as your stylist you won't leave dissapointed.

Marty Crouse

We recently moved to NC and was desperately looking for an amazing hair stylist and boy did we strike gold! Ashley R. was everything we were looking for! Highly recommend this salon and Ashley R., you won't be disappointed!!!

brianna morgan

I’ve been client for years everyone is super nice! I highly recommend Jessica she did amazing job on my hair I’ve had so many compliments on it!

Carly Crossland

Amber was so great! And she’s very personable. I will definitely be coming back.

marion boughton

Visiting from England and decided to restyle and change the colour of my hair. After 22 years of hairdressing for the likes of Peter Webb and The Regis Group as a manager, I am super fussy. Amber was amazing and talented; she did exactly what I asked her to do. Love my new look and would recommend the salon to anyone looking for perfection.

Sonja Unbehend


Wendy Anderson

Excellent service and great atmosphere.

Karla Dalrymple

Alyssa was amazing. I’m very particular about my hair and Alyssa took the time to get it just right! I love my new short bob!!! I’ll definitely be returning for my salon services.


I recently got a haircut from Ashley W. I found her very soft and sweet. She listened to me carefully. The overall haircut was a very typical one that every new hairdresser has in mind for me as a default. However, I feel the overall experience was good. They let you use coupons , they have discounts for subsequent haircuts, bang cuts are free. Also the other hairdressers are not nosy where they gang up on you and praise you unnecessarily. The haircut was $50 and I think there was value in it overall. I will update my stars once I get to experiment more with haircuts with this salon.


Today was our first visit to this place and our last one! They did a terrible job on my daughter's hair styling it for her prom. it was obvious they rushed doing it. The prices also don't match the ones posted on the website. BUT The worse part of this experience was the front desk people. EXTREMELY RUDE. Not even asking an upset client "it was anything wrong? or let us try to fix it" nothing, just a demanding rudeness attitude telling me "it's $50! how are you going to tip? on cash??" loud and UNPROFESSIONAL as I never felt this bad before in a hair or nail saloon. to get even worse, one of these women yelled on a very sarcastic tone: "have a nice day, and have a nice prom" totally insincere and more rudeness like I never seen before. Both of these women shouldn't work in a retail salon business. what a nasty experience for a young girl on her prom day. Terrible, terrible, stay away!

Ashley R. Is absolutely amazing! She has done wonders on my hair. I was at my wits end with other hair dressers, but she has restored my confidence. Now I won't go to anyone else! She is friendly, courteous and an expert at what she does. I would and have recommended all my friends to Twisted Scissors and Ashley R.

Haley Abernathy

Ashley Romanowski asked me to come in for an appointment at 3:30pm on a Thursday. She ends up canceling 20 minutes before I am suppose to be there (I had to drive 45 minutes there and was already minutes from the salon) She said the desk person didn't schedule her current client enough time and would have to push back til 4pm. Minutes later cancelling the entire appointment making a complete waste of my day. Now completely unresponsive to messages via Facebook or cell phone. Never in my life. Not professional at all and complete waste of my time! Not the first so I've heard either!

Laura K

For years, I've had simple color treatments with summer highlights. But recently I went to Twisted Scissors, asking about something different. The stylist Sandee patiently listened to my concerns and suggested a balayage as change-of-pace treatment. I LOVE the natural highlights look, perfect for the beach! My husband noticed the change immediately and oooh and aaah'd. It was my first time at Twisted. Sandee was conscientious and friendly and made me feel welcome.

KM Callies

Props to Sonjia for the best color job ever! She is truly a hair artist and my new coif is a work of art! Thank you Sonjia for your attention to detail and your artistry! #fistbump

I went to this hair salon because we just moved into the area and it was closeby and well-rated. I have gone to slightly more upscale salons before, but due to the good reviews I thought it couldn't go so wrong. I only needed a hair cut and my hair is not difficult to work with at all. I also had long hair, so I was ok with losing two inches for a good cut. Coming in, I was asked to fill out some paperwork for new customers regarding my personal style, my preferences and so on. I thought that was a good idea. However, my stylist Ashley R. simply took the paper afterwards, set it aside and didn't even look at it once. What did I even do that for then? I wasn't offered anything to drink and I didn't see anyone else in there having even a glass of water. Even for a salon in the mid price range I think it would be nice to offer customers some water... The floors were dirty so Ashley simply put my jacket on the couch next to her station, where customers were sitting. Not very safe in my opinion... We discussed my hair cut and agreed on cutting off two inches. I then had to wait for a little while because there was no free shampoo station. In the end, my hair was too short (I lost more than two inches) and the layering was too long. For some reason, she kept asking me if the hair was "short enough", even though I never demanded shorter hair and only wanted to make sure everything looks clean again... I don't think she was very focused or maybe she didn't understand me right (then I think it would have been appropriate to double check). I knew there was no way I would get my length back, but I asked Ashley if she could please fix the layering WITHOUT cutting more off the main length. Well, I watched her do it and she simply cut EVERYTHING shorter, including the bottom layer. I decided not to ask for anything else because I didn't want to lose any more length. My top layer is still too long for my taste and it is also not cut as well as I am used to. When I got home, I also noticed that some of the tips were unevenly cut. I'm very unhappy with the salon, the level of service (come on, offer your customers a glass of water, especially when they come in pregnant in their last trimester!) and the hair cut I have received. And for that, I personally don't think that $45 are that cheap. I won't be returning as a customer.

Allie Pyles

Esther cuts my (wavy girl) and my four year old (ringlet, curly girl) hair. She is fantastic! Highly recommend her for any curly girls struggling to find a curly stylist. She is highly knowledgeable and gave me some great tips to care for our curls.

Donna Delgado

Always love my hair when I walk out!! Never disappointed!

Michela Ramos

By far the best salon I have used in my 9 years in the area. Jennifer Mayhew is a genius with hair color. Everyone is professional and friendly. Not to mention beer, wine, snacks. Pricing is very reasonable as well.

Wanda Guha

Very friendly and efficient, clean, nice place

Mike Smith

Absolute 5 star experience. I drove an hour with my wife and daughter for her to get her haircut...... Boring!! Wrong.... They gave me a beer and allowed my daughter to learn a few things on one of the student hair mannequins. My wife had her haircut by Sonjia and multiple occasions its been flawless. She won't go to anyone else even after moving an hour away. So... I ended up getting my haircut by Emre. I felt like I went in a rugged homeless man and walked out Brad Pitt in his prime. Wow. The guy cut and styled my hair better than anyone I can remember. Please give them a shot. So after it all I expected to pay for this superior experience. I was shocked to receive such a reasonable bill. The entire experience was surreal and changed my opinion on a Salon.

MR Secrist

Are you new in town and looking for someone to get your hair cut and color just right? Call Meredith. I moved here one year ago and was referred to Meredith, and she is the still the only one I will see for my hair. She is so smart and talented. She always checks with me at the start to make sure she understands exactly what effect I would like to achieve. AND SHE DOES IT. She does an excellent job coloring my hair to look like the hair I was born with. She does a great job cutting my hair as well. I leave loving her and loving my hair.

Mahima Gopalakrishnan

The first time I went there I was fortunately taken care of by Morgan, who is talented, sweet and courteous too. the second time around, she was on vacation. only Amber was available. I decided to go with her. Boy! what a bad decision it was. She is not courteous, does not smile, half listens to what you have to say, keeps repeating the same questions again and again. I don't care for her attitude if she did my hair color perfectly. Unfortunately, that did not happen either. So, a big no for Amber and yes for Morgan

Carrie Paddyfoote

Great experience here! I love the atmosphere and everyone is so friendly. My stylist Renee is fabulous and knows what I like! I highly recommend seeing Renee for your next haircut/style!

murray family

So thankful for Ashley Romanowski!! Ashley took on a challenge when I came in! Lol! I was coloring my own hair dark brown almost black and wanted to go blonde. I knew it would be a process, but Ashley Romanowski was up to the challenge. Every step of the way from cut to color my hair looked gorgeous. She also kept the integrity of my hair and it always stayed and looked healthy. Then after a while I needed a change and wanted to go a bit shorter and add red. Again, beautiful hair for me!! A visit with Ashley always starts with a smile and sometimes on those early appointments Starbucks! She is very attentive to her clients needs whether it be a drink, magazine, etc. She is easy to talk to and and eager to please her clients. She is passionate about her craft and always makes sure her clients are happy. I have had the pleasure of having Ashley Romanowski as my hairdresser for over a year and couldn't be happier. I think her work speaks for itself as I have had at least 6 friends and family members leave their hairdresser and come to Ashley.

Joanne Conway

Great highlights today with Sandee B. She is fabulous, patient, great listener.

Jamie Platt

My first experience here was great (I don't recall the stylist), but my second experience with Hanna was horrible. I wanted highlights and a cut (again) and the highlights were so bad (and looked like I'd already had over 4 weeks of growth) that I went back within the week to have it fixed. Hanna still didn't food the problem and I'm left with a big obvious chunk of dark near the front. I've done home highlights better than this. When I called for the "repair" the staff wasn't even apologetic. The cut wasn't even good and now I have too many bangs.

Nancy Dunn

I am always nervous about trying new places and changing my hairstyle completely…but Meredith helped ease both of those nerves. From the receptionist to walking out the door I was completely satisfied. I decided to take a picture in for exactly what I wanted. Meredith took her time and played around with my hair showing me and always asking me if this is what I had in mind. All her questions certainly made me feel comfortable in her knowledge of hair styling. Until now, I have been jumping from hair dresser to hair dresser to find someone that not only took the time with me, but had the experience in giving me that perfect cut. I definitely will be back to Meredith and suggest you give her a try.

Sadat Rafiee

The staff is super friendly! My hairdresser is awesome “Jessica”. She listens to what I want and does a great job:)

Linda Howard

Awesome place to get your hair done. People are very friendly and courteous!!!

Jillian Goodtree

Been going here for years! Got a trim yesterday by Jenny and am loving my haircut. $40 for wash, cut, and style by a professional stylist really can't be beat.

Travis Senor

I had my first cut there recently and couldn't be happier. The staff is fantastic as is the quality of service (Jessica was my stylist and she did an excellent job). For my part (a basic men's cut), the price is just right as well. Happily now a regular and I can't recommend them enough.

Bronte Butler

Thank you to this whole staff for taking care of me today!

Michelle Arroyo

I’m done. I called 3 times today. 1St time I was put on hold a while and hung up. 2nd time I called I just heard music, 3rd time I called and I was put on hold for 6 minutes until I hung up again. That’s way too long to make an appointment....

Ann Hackett

A very bright, friendly, and professional salon!

Patsy Glover

3 weeks ago my sister and I had consultation for color and cut, yesterday was our appointment we were excited. I got dissatisfied with shampoo then hair color, color was not two toned, same all over, barely see any difference, then the haircut, had to say stop, nothing like I wanted, my stylists had to get help, someone else had to cut my hair which made it shorter, but it was alright, hair will grow, had to redo my color, still was not 2 toned. 10:00 to 1:30 doing my hair, my sister had apt. At 12:00 with same stylist needless to say she changed her mind. I did hair many years ago, I've never seen a stylist station that had no tools to the trade, only a comb dryer and scissors. She admitted she needs to take a class on razor cuts, don't schools teach it all? The lady that gave me a haircut was good, salon is great as the personal.

Virginia Phillips

If you are looking for a place to call home. Look no further . Twisted Scissors, Meredith is is absolutely amazing. She always has great ideas and is very passionate about her job. Everyone from the time I walk in the door from the time I leave is always friendly.

Jennifer Adams

I am new to the area, and was searching for a hair salon to perm and color my hair. I chose the Twisted Scizzors Salon -because unlike many hair salons- they actually advertised perms. Since perming hair is not necessarily in vogue as of current, it can be difficult to find a stylist who is well-versed in the craft of perming hair. I called the Twisted Scizzors salon ahead of time to schedule the hair appointment, and the receptionist I spoke to over the phone was professional and friendly. The receptionist mentioned that the hair salon is in a strip mall, next to Harris Teeter (which I later discovered was an important detail, as the hair salon is a bit small + hidden). When I arrived, the employees at Twisted Scizzors salon were welcoming, and the salon had a funky, fresh, artsy vibe inside (with artwork done by the owner, as well as a local artist). Upon meeting my hair stylist, she was talkative and cordial during the beginning session of my hair appointment. I had brought two images along with me, to depict the desired hair style and perm. After my hair had been set in perm rods, perming lotion applied, and hair rinsed out, things began to trickle down hill. At some point during the process, she soaked the back of my shirt. Upon returning to the styling chair, my hair was almost pin straight. The stylist kept frantically scrunching my hair, and adding more and more styling products, telling me I would have to scrunch it and use a curling iron. I finally spoke up and calmly mentioned, "I requested a curly perm, not waves, is there anything we can do about this?". After becoming incredibly defensive, the stylist asserted that if she permed my hair again today, all my hair would fall out. After hearing this phrase repeated several more times, I finally replied, "I'm not requesting you perm my hair again today, I am asking if there is anything we can do about the fact that I asked for curls, and these are clearly waves". She continued to be defensive, rude, and unprofessional, tossing around statements, and asserting that maybe we just had different definitions of what "curly" was. She did not acknowledge her error, or offer to fix it, and I had to ask her about the company's policy when a customer was dissatisfied with their resulting hair style. I was eventually offered a 20% discount for the "inconvenience" (which was 3 hours of my day - - & no perm). I am highly disappointed and unsatisfied with the fact that I paid quite a sum of money for a perm, and did not receive this service. I was never given a business card, and no one has contacted me since my experience with the failed perm at Twisted Scizzors. UPDATE: I was promptly contacted by a manager at Twisted Scizzors Salon after posting my review on Yelp, among other review websites. The manager was very professional, cordial, and was sincerely apologetic for my poor experience with Twisted Scizzors Salon. She mentioned that proper protocol was not followed in the handling of my situation, and that they would be using my feedback as a learning tool to grow and improve as a business. I was offered a full reimbursement of funds, as well as a personal offer by the manager herself to give me the perm I had requested, free of charge. I am highly satisfied and impressed with managements professional and expedient response to my concerns, and feel the situation has been fully rectified. I have updated my rating and review to reflect these changes as well as further interactions with Twisted Scizzors Salon.

Love this salon and owner!

I love their new digs and Meredith treats me right!

Ashley R was amazing!!

Jessica Heitger

Got a Balayage and hair cut and have had many balayages before but tried this salon because I relocated. The hair dresser was friendly and atmosphere was nice but overall for the cost I didn’t feel like I got the level of haircut or color/style that I wanted. Just wasn’t overly impressed with my the end result.

Lisa Prillaman

Heather Dillard is a very talented and creative stylist. She gave me a new style and I have received so many compliments, the best being I look 10 years younger! Trust her with color and cut. She's awesome!!

Pranathi Vangeepuram

I had to wait a bit after arriving. Also I didn't feel that stylish understood my needs accurately

I came here to get my hair cut today, and I am impressed! My mom and grandmother have had their hair styled here before for a special event, but this was the first time I entered the business personally. They had me fill out a survey about my lifestyle and fashion preferences while I waited, and when Ashley W. called me back, I showed her a few pictures of what I was thinking and she got right to work! I got around 6-7 inches off, and it looks exactly how I expected. The price is a little higher than I would prefer to pay (just under $50 after tip for a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry), but I have paid more for lesser quality cuts. I will definitely be coming back!

I have been to this salon several times and had a great experience every time. Glen and Kara are both amazing stylists with years of experience and tremendous talent. I always walk out of there looking exactly how I wanted to look. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone looking for great service at reasonable prices.

dana behan

I have been so happy with Renee. She does an awesome job! Highly recommend her!

Meredith Hauser

Love the stylists and the atmosphere; Ashley R cut 4 inches off of my hair and I absolutely love it! I would recommend this salon to anyone!

Katherine Lelito

I have fine curly hair and it’s hard to cut. Hannah gave me the exact cut from the photo I showed her. Plus- was was really sweet and a joy to talk to. The salon seems a little run down but the stylists are good.

Olivia Ross

I visited this salon a few months ago and had Sarena cut and color my hair. While the color turned out fine, I was not impressed by the cut itself at all. The hair stylist did not even show me the back of my hair before I left so it wasn't until I got home and checked it out that I noticed that the cut was not straight at all in the back. I was very upset and called to complain and they offered to fix it, but acted like it was an inconvenience for them. When I returned to have it fixed, the stylist had a snarky attitude and I felt like her apology was very insincere. For paying as much as I did for these services, I expect for them to be done correctly and I was very upset that they were not. In addition, I did not like the atmosphere here because I felt like it was very unprofessional (the hair stylists were busy fixing each other's hair and joking around the whole time while I was being ignored). I was expecting great things based off of the reviews I found online, but I had a very different experience and will not be returning to this salon.

Candace Blackwood

Great place for a haircut. $45 for a women's short to medium style haircut. Many talented stylists. Beautiful and comfortable salon. Caters to middle to upper class caucasian men, women, and children, though I don't think that is an intentional bias, just a locational one.

Jenn Cadd

I was most pleased with last minute appointment with Sarena. I have her a few different pictures and little direction and she tables the mop some call hair with confidence. She did a fantastic job with the cut, and the scalp massage was worth going back for a paying an addtional fee! She will be my stylist going forward! I have an appointment for color in 3 weeks and I am looking forward to it,!

Shauna Dixon

I have been going to Renee for about 7 months and absolutely love her!! She's so good at styling and coloring hair. She's very personable and always friendly

Jon McIver

Awesome stylists, good prices

Logan Danae

Just got my haircut the other day by Ashley. It was my first time coming to the salon and I'll definitely come here from now on! Great quality and great price. Ashley did an amazing job! :)

Brittany Tan

Pretty place woman was nice who colored and cut my hair. But one of the worst hair cuts I’ve ever had I asked for bangs and they look so bad I cried when I got home I didn’t want to hurt her feelings as she was doing my hair I was trying not to look as how bad it was. She left color all over my forehead so even when I try to hid my bangs I have color all over my head I tried to get most of it off can’t really go work with black hair so my color looks good what have been better if my bangs didn’t look so bad and I didn’t have color all over my head

Heidi Barry Rodriguez

This salon is rated #1 in Western Wake County for very good reasons. The stylists are exceptional, and the management and owners are friendly, honest, welcoming, and highly trained, skilled professionals. No stylist is a miracle worker -and I read these reviews and thought, wow, some people have very unreasonable expectations of what they think should be accomplished. The owner walks the walk in giving back to the community, and works 100% at making sure each customer is satisfied. If an unsatisfied customer is posting here, it is because he or she either did not reach out to the owner (who WILL make it right) or is posting out of spite to get something for free. If you are thinking about making Twisted Scizzors your salon, I'd do it without hesitation. These folks are the real deal.

Twisted Scissors is a super salon!!! Great people, super service. I use Amanda, who's the absolute best - great attention to detail, which I love. Everyone is friendly and professional. If you want a really good salon experience, go to Twisted Scissors. You'll be glad you did!!

Sabrina Zoccola

I got balalage and cut with Renee and she was awesome! She was very friendly, and knew what she was doing. It is clear that she cares about her clients and their hair! Love my new hair!

Cool Cat

Amazing I loved coming here to get my hair done. The staff was so kind and cheerful and really nice to talk to. They also did an outstanding job on coloring my hair and the results were so cool to see.

Madelyne Rush

Absolutely disappointing, a rip-off, and zero customer service. New to town, wanted a hair cut for a new job. Went to Twisted Scizzors bc it was voted Best of Western Wake (Idk why). When I called, Amber, I believe, was not friendly at all. I should have taken her attitude and unfriendliness, almost seeming perturbed at me calling on a Monday afternoon, as a clue I should have run far away but went to my appointment anyway. There was no one there. Again, Amber hardly looked up to check me in, asked for the 3rd time if I'd been there before and then immediately went back to talking to someone else. The color was so toxic my eyes were watering and it made me sick at which my stylist said I'd "get used to" in 10 minutes. Awesome. Been getting my hair done for 15 years and never had that happen. I said I didn't want any drastic change to my hair color, just warm it up some, and take off 4-5 inches yet she put bright highlights and brought my color up with toner so much I went from auburn to dirty blonde and took off closer to 8 inches, just kept cutting and cutting. They didn't have their prices online or visible in store, and I found at checkout it was $90 for partial highlights PLUS $45 for the cut and style which their website said was $30 on Mon/Tues but Amber being terrible at customer service again wasn't going to mention until I asked, even as a new client. Sophia was nice but didn't try to understand what I wanted, rushed to get started, and when I trusted that she understood, I was incredibly disappointed, getting a Mom cut as a 20-something. This place is a joke, and I will never be back.


Worst experience at a salon in my 41 years.New to the area,came across this salon in the Cary magazine ..voted best salon,so I thought perfect well that wasn't the case for me.I made an appt. with the owner Amanda #10 stylist.I was getting my roots dyed and low lights put in.Amanda applied the dye put me under the dryer..then a man(Tony) came over and said its time to wash.Tony washed my hair,Amanda came out with her eyes red..I thought this was about her dog being sick because we spoke about her dog not doing well.I told her I too had just had to put my dog down not long ago while she dyed my hair.So when I saw her I wasn't sure if by me saying this made her cry..wasn't sure what was going on but I felt awful.Tony then said to sit in his chair..Amanda never said anything to me.Tony a #2 stylist cut my hair.Which I wasn't even asked if this was ok nor told that this was happening just come sit in my chair, but Tony did a fine job.Went to check out, I bought six hair products.I mentioned the 20% off for first time clients which they new about also when I booked...saw this in the Cary Magazine article..I used $180 in cash then $123 in credit.They swiped my card,told me it didn't go through,swiped it again then said we don't think it went through..will call you.I closed on my house the next day.The day after Stacy called and said we never charged your card, so I went back in and they swiped my card again.Then the next day I went through my purse and saw the receipt..realized they didn't give me 20% off my hair only my hair products.I called Stacy said I'm sorry I'll refund your card $40 something dollars.Then I noticed I was charged for a condition treatment which I've had in the past and I usually sat at the wash sink for 10 min.This never happened because Tony only washed my hair.Called the salon and they told me it was in my hair dye..ok I never heard of this,$20 charge.Well my American Express bill came in and didn't think much about how high it was being we had been spending a lot due to moving in our new home.My husband ended up going over it one day and called me to say the salon charge me 3 times.I called them, Megan answered said I'll have to bring in my statement to prove it but come next week because everyone is out of the office for a hair show.Ok, then the day before Im suppose to come in, Megan calls me to say don't bother coming in you have to dispute the charges with your credit card I'm beyond mad..this is on my statement with your companies name and phone sister had just passed away at the age 43 and I just moved into my home and all I wanted to do was get my haircut..I told them to cancel my April because I can never go back..ever!Twisted Scissors might do great charity work but they don't treat clients with the same respect at least not to me.I spent a good amount of money $323 and even $246 more that I was over charged =$569 plus tip. Now I'm still waiting for the charges to be disputed.If you go.. pay cash and make sure your charged correctly.Good luck!

Richard Burton

From the time I walked in the door & was was warmly greeted by the pretty young ladies offering refreshments/libations thru my time in the chair w/ Amber it was an enjoyable experience; I didn't care if she cut my hair or not (but she is a magician w/ the scissors)


I felt the need to write in and tell everyone about the best kept secret in the Raleigh/Cary area. Her name is Crislyn and she is the new Stylist at the Twisted Scizzors Salon and Spa. If you want to have a true professional make you look and feel edgy, sexy, and stylish, she is the the Go-To-Girl. I have not been this excited about an experience I have had in a Salon in years!

Haley Gray

My favorite hair stylist of all time. Great atmosphere, and one of my favorite businesses in the local area.

Jennifer Plurad

I love that this is a locally owned salon. I have been going to Amanda for years! Not only is she talented but she truly cares about each and every one of her clients and her community. I know that my hair is in great hands and I know I will always come out looking great.

Katherine Bosken

Nice setting, convenient location, and quick! My stylist was on time and really listened to me!

colette Koppel

Super talented stylist.


Renee always does a great job. Wont go anywhere else

Mirtha Dominguez

have an appointment

Hilary Cheeseman

I chose this salon mainly because of its proximity to my home but I will keep returning because they gave me a fantastic hair cut and were professionals. All of the stylists were highly attentive to their clients, not gossiping or chatting among themselves. This salon also holds 'ladies night' events and gives out coupons. A+

Jessica Clark

Very cute salon! I saw Esther, and she really took her time to get the exact cut I wanted. She did an amazing job and I walked out feeling great. Can't wait to go back.

B Smith

Had the best haircut i have had in years with Ashley. The receptionist named Lauren was so alert when i walked in and ready to help. I will be back in a few weeks. Loved the environment and staff!

Asianlove Whit

They had one worst hairstylist i have ever encountered . Cant follow simple directions and made my hair worse. Novice . Ended up fixing it at home myself . Just make sure you know who your hairdresser stylist is. Not coming back again .

Cindy Sun

I got a haircut there and the staff was very nice. The haircut was also well priced for the paid service.

Ashley Smith

Friendly people, very fun. Tony is hilarious!!

Diana Feigin

Sofia is a great stylist, I'd like to highly recommend her!

Keirya Langkamp

Tony did a amazing job with my highlights. He separated them on an angle and didn't over process. He was fast and effective. He is the best I have seen in NC. Can't wait to come back. - K. Langkamp

Mark Willis

Always love the knowledge and techniques I learn from Linsey. My color is great!

Christian Perry

Susan Crawford

Renee did an awesome job on my color and cut. She is an artist!

Meredith Riman

Great clean salon. Everyone is so nice. Renee did a great job! I love my new color and style!! She worked magic today!!!

Nicole Kolmanovsky

Has the most polite and professional staff of all the salons I've been to. I got the best haircut here from Sonjia, and my family enjoyed the complimentary food and drink.

Zan Coleman

Esther did a wonderful job with my curly hair! This is the first haircut I have been truly happy with in years. I will definitely be back.

sameera kota

I got my haircut by Ashley and I am HAPPY! I moved to the area recently and was hoping I’ll find the right stylist for me and now I did! She knew what I was talking about and she could deliver exactly what we talked about. The place looks pretty too. Definitely worth checking out!

Elphaba Greenleaf

Amazing stylist

Khushboo Patel

Love the new location, it looks beautiful! However, I do wish they told you on the phone that they changed locations so you don't accidentally go to the old spot. Also, I got a haircut from Stephanie and it was extremely average. There was nothing different or special about the way it was cut and it felt really rushed. I asked for long layers and she finished the cut really fast and asked if I was okay with it. There were barely any layers and I felt bad asking but I politely asked her to put in some more. She tried to fix it a little but it did not make much of a difference. It definitely was not worth $50 plus tip. I used to come here because I would get really good cuts that the hair dressers would put time and effort into and were definitely worth the price. But if I can get this same cut at some average chain then coming here is not worth it.

shoba ramanathan

Esther is the best!! She does my hair as well as my 12 year old daughter’s! She is always consistent with her cut during every visit and takes such good care of our needs. She is honest about what works best for our hair and she is so patient and meticulous when doing our hair! Thank you Esther!! You’re the best!

Kristen Hughes

So impressed with Linsey as a stylist and manager of the salon! I had visited the salon at the end of June and was not happy with the results of my highlights with a different colorist. I would typically just move on to the next place, but decided to call and explain my concerns. Linsey welcomed me back yesterday with an extremely positive & professional attitude, and did an amazing job correcting / blending my color and fixed my cut, all at no charge. She is a great example of how to treat customers right and has earned a long term client for Twisted Scizzors.

Danielle Guglielmi

Morgan is excellent! I went in not knowing what I wanted. She suggested something I just went with it. I absolutely love the way it turned out. I feel like a new person. I highly recommend her!

John Sanchez

One of the nicest salons I have ever been to recently. Very relaxing and up-graded interior, and the staff is friendly and very welcoming!I had an appointment with Jen, and she did a great job on styling my hair..plan to return in the future tt

Lauren Baker

Meredith was amazing! She did a beautiful balayage and cut on my blonde hair and the finished product made me feel so pretty. It's so light and looks so natural! Her station was clean and clear, she had fantastic reccomendations for my hair type and style and the salon was gorgeous. Thanks so much, I'll be back :)

gl rtpnc

Perfect every time! Thanks Sandy

Bethany Neigebauer

I've been here several times and always had a great experience. My appointment today was with Renee Adkins and she was great. I received full highlights and a trim. I have long and thick hair so it took several hours but Renee was extremely flexible and understanding. I even had to talk a work call in the middle and she accommodated me perfectly. I would definitely recommend Renee and the salon. I've yet to be disappointed.

Maria Norris

This place was amazing! All of the staff that I had the pleasure to meet were all lovely people. Jen was awesome! I loved her personality. I will definitely be using them in the future.

Tara Mullins

Renee Adkins was so patient with me and I am thrilled with the outcome.

Adrienne Parsons

Ashley R. Is very detailed in her styling and cutting . She is very personable and has a fun personality who gets my style . She always cuts a little less just to make sure it doesn’t end up too short since I have naturally curly hair. She listens to the client and gives suggestions but doesn’t make you feel pressured on what she thinks would look good unless you ask her. Her edgy style and enthusiasm for hair makes my salon experience always top notch! But , don’t take my word for it , it’s already hard to get an appointment as she’s so popular !

Laura Traud

I get my hair cut by Ashley W, and I love her! I've had experience with some of the other stylists through a former job and everyone is so nice and talented. I've always had trouble finding a stylist who did a good job for me AND I felt comfortable talking to and spending that amount of time with. Ashley fits the bill. I can't wait to see their new place at my next appointment!

Danielle Ellington

Amazing! Ashley R. Was my hairdresser and my hair now looks phenomenal! She fixed all the problems with the color and cut and is extremely nice. I left feeling like a movie star and having visited with friends. Colette at the front desk was so friendly and made me feel welcome right away! Thank you Ashley R., Colette and Twisted Scizzors for an amazing experience!

line step

Ashley W is a true perm expert/enthusiast. I got a horrible box perm wave from my last stylist and after a consultation with Ashley, i've received two olaplex perms from her that have lasted and look great.

Wen Tung

I came in to get a basic hair cut. I have straight long hair so it's easy to cut and I can go just about anywhere. I picked this place because the website said a Womens haircut includes a scalp massage along with the shampoo/conditioner and blowout etc. I was very disappointed not to get the scalp massage. When I asked the receptionist if they stopped doing them, she was confused and said she didn't realize they were part of the haircut service. She looked up the website and saw it listed and gave me a 10% discount. It was nice of her. However, I wouldn't go back because without the scalp massage, this place doesn't really stand out from all the others that charge similar prices.

Jillian Lorek

We loved our experience last time with Jennifer so much my 8 year old son asked for her again! Our experience this time around was just as great if not even better! My son is on the spectrum and has high anxiety - Jennifer is AMAZING with him and this mama appreciates that more than she will ever know! She is patient, understanding and so kind as well as fast and efficient- exactly what he needs! Office staff is always super friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Twisted Scissors!!

RushHour Karting

Best and friendliest Staff, do a great job, and the facility is Top Notch!!! Highly recommend!

Amy Olson

Renee did an amazing job with my hair. The color is awesome and I have gotten so many compliments! I love the cut as well - my hair is super straight but the style she gave me has movement & body. I would recommend her to anyone!!!

Betsy Shrader

Meredith just gave me an awesome color and haircut! She was great at giving advice and steering you in the right direction.

Jenny Gragg Quinn

Alyssa ia great and the salon is beautiful! I love that they also do special events for the community and their customers, like Braids and Buns!

Cat E

I accompanied a friend for a haircut, and we both loved the results on her hair. A couple days later I came back to get my hair done too and got a balayage and haircut with which I'm quite pleased. As a side note, my friend and I were both taken care of by the same person, Sandee. She is very friendly & down to earth and made our visits very enjoyable. I'll definitely consider coming back in the future.

Mytreyi Shastry

Morgan was amazing! She listened to everything I specified. She was patient, courteous and smiling throughout the session. I'm definitely returning to this place but would like Morgan always.

Rebecca Truluck

Amber did a great job giving me natural looking low lights. Reasonable prices and great service.

Malinda Teague

I have been coming to Renee for the past year. I have naturally curly hair that can be a challenge and she has been wonderful! Always great with suggestions for cuts and products!

sandra liberto

I just returned to NC after living in Florida for the past ten years. Finding a good salon with a good colorist was frightening. I was delighted that Clay at Twisted Sisters was just what I was looking for. I took a chance after looking up salons on Google. Very happy, now I am treating my daughter to a visit to the salon. Great salon, highly recommend
