worth the drive. I love Par Exsalonce! I make a drive of over 60 miles just to come to this salon for my services. I am not an easy person to please and after most haircuts and colors I am very unhappy. Everyone at the salon is so friendly and professional. The stylists listen to what I want. I am always thrilled with my color and cut. When I leave the salon, I usually go shopping since I have made such a long drive. People will stop me to tell me they love my hair and where do I get it done! I am looking forward to trying the new shop in Oak Park Mall as it will be one-stop for everything for me. I am sure the service will be just as great. I would highly recommend Par Exsalonce to anyone.
wonderful experience. I have been waiting for an upscale salon to come in at the mall for some time. That way I could leave the mall with everything I needed to look fabulous all the time (clothes and hair in one place! Dream come true) I walked out of Nordstorms recently and noticed a new salon had moved in. When I saw it was Par Exsalonce I hurried in to make my appointment. I had been to the spa and absolutely loved it . I have been to others and the experience just isn't the same anywhere else. They really know how to create a divine atmosphere. I got the same relaxation experience at the mall even though they were just doing my hair. They massaged my shoulders and scalp before beginning with the service. I had been going to the same place for years for my hair and finally I have found a place that gives me exactly what I want. To top it all off, she showed me how to achieve the same look at home! My hair has always been rather difficult to manage as it is very thick and wavy. I never knew what to do with it. I'm so happy that I know how to make my hair look great on a daily basis now. Everyone was so helpful and very pleasant to be around. The front desk girls were great about helping me understand what products that would work best not only for my hair but for my skin as well. And they weren't just feeding me what I wanted to hear! As it turns out, these products really do work perfectly for me! Its weird to be this excited for my next haircut but I suppose its a good thing.
An Amazing Experience!!. After my experience here I felt compelled to write about it. I work in a business that sends me across the country regularly but I always look forward to coming to Kansas City just because of this place. I was first introduced to Par Exsalonce by one of the locals I work with when she arranged for us to have an all day Spa experience. We were to have a massage, a facial, a manicure and pedicure and then finish the day by having our hair styled for a night out on the town. Now, I have been to salons and spas from Los Angeles to New York City so you can imagine my surprise when I had my best experience in the Midwest! They started me off with a warm foot soak in their relaxation room and gave me a cup of their hot aveda tea. I could hardly carry on a conversation with my friend I was so relaxed. My massage therapist came to retrieve me from the relaxation room and then we started the services for the day. I think I was drooling during the massage. By the time we went to have our hair styled, I was in a kind of daze. I was surprised to find that I wasn't done being pampered. I got a scalp and neck massage before the stylist shampooed my hair and a hand massage while she styled it. When I left, not only did I look my best, but I felt my best. The price was definitely worth the service and a great deal when I compare it to other salons of the same caliber on the West Coast. Every time I come back to Kansas City, I make sure to make a stop in here before I head back to the hustle and bustle of the coast.
Salon going downhill. I completely agree with the poster below me. Par Exsalonce is over-priced, and with the prices you would expect awesome service, right? Wrong! My stylist left and I decided to stay because of the location. Well, I went in for my haircut, and the woman who cut my hair was texting and receiving text messages throughout my haircut. I also called previously and scheduled a brow wax as well....imagine my surprise when my STYLIST did my brow wax in the shampoo bowl with my wet hair. I kid you not. It took all of two minutes and cost 20.00. And she never had me look at it to see if I liked either my brows or my haircut when she was done. I've also tried to call management, and no one has called back. Believe me, even though I have gone to Par Exsalonce for years, I will never go back. And I will tell all of my friends/colleagues/acquaintances the same thing.
EXspensive, EXtremely disappointing EXperience at Par EXsalonce.
I paid over $200 for a cut and color at Par Exsalonce. The woman who cut my hair ignored my request to keep my hair shoulder length. When I got home, I wondered why the hair on the right back side of my head was flipping out. I realized then that she had made a serious mistake when cutting my hair. The next week, I went to a different salon/hairdresser. She told me that it will take six months to grow out the mistake the Par Exsalonce hairdresser made. When I called Par Exsalonce to share my concerns, they told me a manager would call me back. Still waiting for that call, but not holding my breath!
Oh and BTW--the color was brassy and ugly. Thankfully, my new hairdresser was able to fix that.
horrible hair!. I went and got my hair colored and cut from a surly stylist named Mickey,she was awful and she was one of their most expensive I can only imagine how horrible the others are
I love this place!. I love this place. Every time I go, I receive excellent service. I think I've had every service they offer. I get facials whenever I can and they are always very relaxing. They set the mood with music, lights and the aromas to make it really soothing. I also get my hair done there. I frequently dye my hair and my stylist always does a fantastic job. I do multiple colors and my stylist is great about helping me choose colors that will go well with my skin as well as making sure that they don't look silly together. The massage that I get with my pedicure sends me straight to heaven every time! Overall, this place is somewhere I love to escape to, if only for an hour. They help me relieve stress, relax and just feel good.
this place is horrible!. I have been several times to get my hair done,every time I go back the stylist I like is gone . Then they place me with somone more expensive and less talented.You get the impression that it is run like a sweatshop.
expensive, but ....
I've only gone for massages. The cost is definitely higher than most salons, but the attention and treatment is better. From a foot soak to selecting your massage oil scent to a nice steaming shower.
It is worth the price if you want to be pampered.
Go somewhere else. I've been there once and have not returned. I went for a haircut. The stylist was late and rushed me through. I didn't receive the cut I asked for and a year later I am still trying to grow out the hack job she did on me. The layers she did were out of control and I almost cried when I left. She didn't style my hair when done but just did a quick partial blow drying job that left me poofy and too ridiculous to go anywhere.
