Ok... I meet most of the crew at the mohegan sun bridal show..... (My sister got into a fight with the salon I had already booked and since she is my matron of honor I had to find a new salon)..I told them I needed a new salon for my bridal party and they showed me there prices and told us that the trial was included....That day I called and cancled with t5he salon I had already booked....So I am a pasty white bride.... went there for my make up trail and hair trial...... hair trial was great..... the makeup not so good..... they didnt have my shade of fondation..... also had only 4 matte eyeshadows...... both cost me $90........ and the makeup melted off and was blotchy only 15 min. after I left, from the start it was also orange as they did not have any ivorys for foundations, they also didnt have any shade of coral lipstick or gloss...... I called after and told them that I was told that we were told that the trial was included for the $70 updue and the $35 makeup.... (it was not just me that heard this, my soon to be mother inlaw my mother and my bridesmaid all heard them say at the show that the trial was included.......) I also told them that they didnt have my shade of foundation and that I was worried that when I came back on the day of my wedding that the one she said she would get for me would also be the wrong shade.... I also told them that the make up was not good for bridal day wear because it was not long lasting..... The lady told me to not worry and the owner would call me back the next day...... He called me the next day and told me "So I heard that you didnt like the hair or makeup" I said no I liked the hair... "I talked to both girls and they said that you didnt like anything and that you had cold feet and wanted to call of the wedding" I did say I had cold feet I never said that I wanted to call off the wedding....... then he tells me that he has already booked the day of my wedding because i didnt pay a deposit..... I was never asked for one....... I now have 2 1/2 weeks to find a salon and am out $90...... I also have sensitive skin and had a very bad reaction to all the makeup.... I was nice to them when I called and there was absolutly no reason to be mean to me and lie...... I just wanted them to know what had happend and they couldnt take the feed back ....... I do suggest this salon for hair.... I had the nicest girl ever!!!!
Will NEVER go back to Antenna Salon!!!!!! – I was using this salon for a couple of years. The first stylist I saw was good at first, a little flaky, but we all have our moments, right? ....Well she ended up over processing my hair and gave me a little attitude when I told her what I thought, like it was my fault. She ended up getting fired for stealing.
Number two stylist I went to twice, which was enough! The color was just okay and the cut she gave me I couldn't style to save my life. I returned six months later figuring I'd give her a second chance. I even brought along a picture of a cut I liked! She dismissed the picture and told me she had something better in mind...well, she ended up cutting practically all my hair off. The style was terrible too!!
My one last rant about this place....the brunett receptionist is totally incompetent! She knows nothing of customer service!!
The one good thing I have to say about Antenna Salon is, J.D., (the owner) is professional and reasonable with his management of the salon.
I have found an awesome place in Colchester called "PRISMS" Hair Studio. They have stylists with years of experience and they are very reasonably priced!!!
Professional service – I have had my hair cut at Antenna numerous times and it has been a pleasant experience every time. I usually see Bethanie and she is great with haircuts and styling. I feel like I'm always getting up-to-date and flattering haircuts. Great place to go!
Best salon in town – Very cutting edge. Knew exactly how to give a great consult so that I got exactly what I wanted! Every one there looked as though they could have just come out of a New York salon. Great experience! I recommend it to everyone!!
AWFUL. – This salon offers 'relaxers', but they couldn't even straighten my hair with a flat iron . I left yesterday looking like a big fuzzy cottonball. They do not know how to work with curly hair, whatsoever. My stylist was very nice, but probably only knew how to do her own hair. Now I know (and all of my relatives, and my boyfriend do too..) why I only go to FX Hair in Groton.
This place will DESTROY your hair – I got my hair cut and colored here and the hairdresser there was really inexperienced and she did a HORRIBLE job with everything! It took 4 hours and my hair looked like a freaky calico cat. And it was way too expensive $145! The owner was a really snobby fruitloop too. I had to go to a different salon and get it all cut off! I was in tears and I will never ever ever go back there again in my life. Do not go to this salon you will be very very unsatisfied.
Bad experience. – My hair was poorly done and it had stripes of color instead of highlights. The cut was bad . The place is pretty, but I will never go there again. I had to go to another salon to have the color fixed. Stay away from the stylists at Antenna!
Best place in Norwich – Jolene does a great job on my hair. I like the atmosphere and the people are friendly. The price is on the high side but worth it for a good mens cut.
JOJO! I love HER! – Jolene.... JOJO... i simply amazing. Go to her. Great place. The boss is a weirdo though. He is very awkward, but the staff are very nice.
