I went and saw Misha and got a cut and color. My hair was pretty long and I wanted it cut above my shoulders and was pretty nervous bc in the past I’ve haves hairdressers who do not listen to what I w...ant and do what they want. She put me at ease and gave me an amazing hair cut! I had dyed my own hair black and wanted to go back I my natural brown hair and she explained how it would be a process and it could be difficult but the end result for my color was beautiful! Hot heads is such a great place and I will definitely recommend Misha to others! See More

I suppose the kindest thing I can say about Hot Head Salon is that I constantly refer my friends and family to Hot Head, and they’ve all stayed clients. I have one friend that even drives in from Cana...l Winchester just to go to Hot Head. When I split from significant other, my ex and I agreed that it was unfair to ask the other to part with Jamie, so we both still go to Hot Head.

It should be noted that I’m a guy and I don’t have the same needs women do. That said, just about every woman I’ve sent over to Jamie and the team at Hot Head has called me back to thank me. They’re just really, really good over there.

The bottom line is that the stylists at Hot Head “get it.” They know you want an awesome style, at a fair price, and an experience that respects your time. The stylists there seem committed to the art and craft of hair styling/cutting. They’re not the kind of people that have jobs–they have careers. That makes me feel very confident about them and it’s why I’ve been a client for so long and why I’m happy to refer others.

And I love that if you ask their opinion, they’ll give it to you. They’re not just a pair or hair-cutting robot hands. They have ideas and it’s great.

It’s a no-nonsense experience that always earns me compliments after I leave. You should go there and see for yourself. Everyone is just super, super cool and talented.

I've been going to have my hair cut by Jamie long before she opened Hot Head Salon. No matter what's going on the ladies always get me in to get my hair cut. Fun environment, music and always a smile ...on everyone's faces.

Once you find the person that can cut your hair the way you want it you never leave them, NEVER!!!!!

Only been in twice so far, but both times Erica did a fantastic job with my hair (despite me completely changing what I wanted from one cut to another). Quality cut for the price, and service has been... great each time! Highly recommend it! See More

Erica is awesome! My hair was a mess after my stylist quit after about 20 years. I was 3 months overdue for a cut/color. I am so happy with Erica's work! My color is perfect and my cut (pixie cut) is ...exactly what I wanted! See More

I was new to Columbus and needed a new stylist, so my friend - whose hairstyle I loved - recommended Jamie. I was nervous because I adored my stylist in Maryland, but Jamie gave me the best style I've... ever had. She provides me with consistently great cuts and isn't afraid to tell me why something won't work on my potato head. Most importantly, I don't have to compromise style for affordability, as Hot Head gives me both. Highly recommend. See More

I was so pleased with my cut. I never know what to ask for, but the stylist there was friendly and knew what she was doing. Hands down best hair cut I've ever had.

I have been coming to Hot Head Salon since it opened, in Graceland Shopping Center. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. They really take the time to get to know their clients on a personal level. Y...ou're not just a number, here. Jamie and Erica have always cut my hair and they are AWESOME! They consult with you to understand how they can give you the best service possible. I will continue to be a patron of Hot Head Salon! See More

Love, love, love Hot Heads!! My favorite place to get my hair done, and they did super great when my 9 year old was ready to cut a bunch of hair off for donation.

I don't typically write reviews, and I've never written a negative review, but after having had the worst haircut and color I have experienced to date, I feel like something needs to be said.

I call...ed the salon in the mid afternoon to get a ballpark cost of what a cut and full foil would be, and was told a very reasonable price for what I had thought was a reputable salon. Lucky me, they also had an opening to take me that day!

The stylist I had was kind of young, but stated she had been doing hair for 5 years and was particularly good at the type of dye job I was requesting. I cautioned I was pregnant, and that I'd heard the hormone changes can effect how your hair takes color, but was reassured that since we were lightening it, there would be no issue.

The coloring process began, and admittedly I have VERY thick hair, so I knew I would take a while. I noticed as she was foiling, she was going much farther up than the picture description I had brought in, and was foiling every layer instead of every other layer like I had thought she would. She finished after about an hour and a half, and brought me to the sink to put in a toner. At this point, I had not seen my hair.

It processed for almost 20 more minutes, and after rinsing me I saw it in the mirror. It looked like I had dyed my hair bleach blonde, and then let it grow out for four months...I tried to reassure myself that I could just be shocked at the difference, and to let her finish up. I'm a natural dark brunette by the way, and I had NO color in my hair previously. I was essentially a clean slate.

She began cutting after I asked for about an inch off, and for it to be thinned a little too. As she was thinning, I could see she was getting close to my scalp. I was getting nervous because she spent an unusual amount of time thinning it out. I watched it pile on the ground, all the while too timid to speak up for myself.

After all was said and done, after all the thinning and color, I was left with thin, wispy, patchy bleach blonde hair. And about 3-4 inches off my length...She reassured me again, that I just needed some more toner to correct the brightness of the blonde, and that I could come in to get it adjusted anytime. I was in shock, so I said ok, and paid for my haircut.

I got home and cried, and after calming myself down I decided to call back and ask for a refund. I've never felt like I had received such bad service, that I felt I needed money back. When I called, I spoke with the manager who insisted I looked "awesome", and that I should give them a chance to fix it if I didn't like it. (This was after she said she needed to call me back because she had customers...It took an hour and a half). I agreed, but my schedule wasn't within their hours and the manager didn't even try to accommodate my availability. I asked for my money back and was told I could only get less than half of what I had paid because I had received both a cut and color. I told her the issues with the cut, and in a tone of annoyance she said "what? Now it's the haircut too?" Again, almost on the verge of tears, I agreed to the portion to be paid back. I quickly scheduled an appointment with a salon I trust to fix Hot Head's mistake, and will now be paying almost twice what Hot Head Salon had originally charged me.

Three days later, I continue to find things wrong with my hair...the thinning that happened so close to my scalp has produced small tufts of hair that stick out from my head.


Live and learn! And to quote the manager "it's just hair", it'll grow back!

I would like to announce that after an amazing and successful decade of business, Hot Head Salon will be closing our doors this Saturday. I cannot thank every employee, past and present, client; whether you came in every two weeks or every two years or even one time, enough. Each and every one of you were a part in our success and very appreciated. I have been a small business owner for ten years. That means that every hour of every day there was always the undercurrent ...of responsibility and worry in my subconscious. At times we struggled and at times we flourished but at the end of the day I have made the conscious decision to walk away when I chose to. I am retiring and focusing time and energy on enjoying everything else that life has to offer. I do not write this with a heavy heart and no one should feel bad, this is a positive change in my life and something that I have been looking forward to and now is the time to celebrate what was and to celebrate what will be. We have been honored to have had the opportunity to help support local charities and to be able to share our space with some of the most talented artists in Columbus. Hot Head Salon was born from an idea of, "I can do this" and thanks to everyone that supported us, we did do this! Thank you for an amazing experience, thank you for your love and support. Thank you for you.

Jamie
