Color me impressed


Color Nation is a neat salon set in a great location in Rocky River on Detroit Road. The salon opened five years ago and has a great staff of stylists. 

The atmosphere is fun; the space is open and clean. All the staff is quite friendly - with welcoming smiles, of course - not to mention professional to the clients in their chairs.

I decided to try Color Nation for a new cut. I was nervous for my cut because I wanted a change – bangs!

I felt much better when my stylist Lisa walked up to me with a huge grin. Since this was my first visit, Lisa showed me to the smock room and asked if I wanted a water or coffee. 

At this point, I was more comfortable with my daring move of bangs. I showed Lisa a picture of the targeted hairstyle. Lisa then went step by step as to what she thought would best resemble the look based on my face shape. 

Lisa walked me over to sinks to wash my hair. The shampoo and conditioner she used were products by Pureology. The products smelled amazing, not to mention the head massage I received was amazing. I was relaxed and ready for the cut.

When we got back to the chair, Lisa explained that she was going to start with a clean-up cut, adding layers, and would then work on the bangs. She cut the bangs slowly, frequently asking how I felt and if more should come off. It was great how intuitive she was to my feelings. 

I am happy to report I am satisfied with my haircut bangs, and my overall experience at Color Nation.

Color Nation is not only for hair. They also offer tanning (Solar Nation), facials, massages, manicures, and pedicures. I have heard from numerous people (including Lisa) that the spray tan at Solar Nation is fabulous. Not to mention the prices were great for the wonderful service!
