I tried this salon for the fist time last week and I fell in love with it! I had my hair done by a gal named Maggie and she was able to give me the exact haircut that I wanted. Overall the salon is very friendly, warm, and unique. I love the fact that they are a family owned business and that they have been in business for 20 some years they told me. Guess that shows they are doing well.
I have been looking for a place to get my hair done permanently and not have to move around from hairdresser to hairdresser. Well, I found my place. This place gets my hair right every time. I don't know why anyone would give this nice salon a bad review.
It was a pretty unique shop, not one you would fine everywhere. I liked how it was family owned, the service nice.
Thank you Ron! – I have tried almost every salon around the Wesport/plaza area, and Salon Sophia was the best by far! They can actually do my hair the way I want and are extremely professional! The owner Maggie did my hair, and I got a Japanese relaxer and it looks amazing!
I highly recommend this salon to anyone. They were very professional to me, and it was comforting that they have been in business for over 20 years on the plaza. Every time I have been in there they have been very busy, but it's worth the wait! I was very happy with my color and cut at the end, and was pleased by how much time they spent on me to send me out the door perfect!
All the comments I see are about the other stylists there - my stylist is Emilio. Emilio is amazing - he's been doing my hair for 30 years off and on, as I could afford him. My oldest daughter has 'complicated' thick and curly hair. He taught her how to take care of it, and how to style it - in doing so, he helped her conquor those 'awkward' junior high years :) - she remains a regular customer of his.
Emilio is very professional, he knows what works and what doesn't. Cuts, colors, perms, never a problem, always prompt. What more could you ask for?
dishonest – I have had my hair colored for 3 decades and never had had someone tell me that my hair is the problem. I went 4 weeks ago and Ron one of the owners said I should buy a product to touch my hair up between appts, seemed like an okay thing to do. I realized in 4 days that the hair color did not take and that is why he had me buy the product, so hair cut color and product with tip $160.00, not cheap, never mentioned that he would fix problem
Fool me once, so I went back this week, told him by concerns and again my hair was the problem, never offered to compensate me for my time and dollar amount. So he colored my hair, again color did not take , he tried his forumla, which did not take also. My hairdresser in another town suggested that the product was bad, which I suggested and then he went on to say he taught color in New York and 99% of the time everything is okay. At this moment everyone in salon new there was a provlem,, Ron left to do a another client and was finsihed by another sylists, who continued to say my hair was the problem call me honey repeatly but again never offered to fix by problem, by either calling my old hair dresser or buy the product which did work on my hair. The comments about the salon and how clean it is, well tile on ceiling is stained with water and exposed pipes, so i was a bit concerned about that.
Long story to this point, Ron and his staff do not take pride and accountablity for their work, I am in the service industry and would fire anyone who worked for me with this lack of skill set. When there is a issue with anything you fix the problem and not place blame on anything, esp something as stupid as it is my hair problem with out offering to fix.
Yes, I walked out 2 1/2 hours later with a $50.00 bill and my hair not colored right, the cost was for hair cut, which was about 15 mintues of the time. If you have 3 hrs of time besides extra cash to spend on your hair this salon is for you however I suggest youn look else where. Honestly open for 20 years..will be with out my business.
Salon Sophia – this is a horrible salon. You have to wait and then get mediocre care. I got the worst color ever there and Ron just blew it off. Highly disappointed. In addition, they don't clean their salon very well. My stylist picked up a dirty brush and used it to comb my hair...disgusting!
Best Customer Service for a simple haircut & Style – This past weekend, I was visiting a family member and I needed a haircut. I am very picky when it comes to someone touching my hair but after reading the reviews on this salon, I took a chance and made an appointment. I was an hour late and when I got there, they were getting ready to leave for the day (I don't blame them, it was a holiday). When I walked in, Ron greeted me so nicely and was not at all mad I was an hour late. He asked Margie (sp?) if she could take the appointment and with such a warm smile, she agreed. I already had such a great experience before she even touched my hair :).
Since Margie was finishing up with a customer, Ron did not make me wait!! He went and shampoo my hair so by the time he was done, Margie was ready for me. She was such a great hairstylist and very personable!!! Anytime I am in KC and need to get my hair done, I will definetely go there and I highly recommend this salon to anyone out there.
Best Haircut I Have Ever Had! – I has in Kansas City from out of town and needed to get a haircut. We were down walking at the Plaza and found Salon Sophia. They were very friendly and got me in for an appointment right away.
Maggie's brother did my haircut. He was very meticulous throughout the process, and gave me the BEST haircut I have ever had!
I will definitely go back to Salon Sophia!
Best Salon! – I don't know why people are giving this Salon a bad review. This salon has been in business for over 20 years so obviously they are good! This is the best salon I have been to. I have been going to Salon Sophia for 7 years now. The owner Maggie does my hair exactly how I want it every time, and gives me great service. She has my coffee ready every time I walk in the door and does an exceptional job on my hair. I bring my whole family in because they are great people, and are amazing at what they do!
