Some customer reviews about Vanessa!
This place is AWESOME! The interior is so cool, they really have a unique and inviting space. And as for the services, TOP NOTCH. I use Vanessa and she does some serious high quality work. She listens to exactly what you want and literally brings your visions to life. They are so versatile as well; you can literally do anything you want to your hair–they will make it happen for you. They are up on all the hottest trends and styles; when I feel so many other places you go to are outdated. Super chic, well priced, a must-try if you are searching areas in Columbus. Other perk, their location is perfect for all Clintonville-ites and campus-folk. Good parking. Check it out!!!! Vanessa is uhhhhmazing!
I’ve been to Rendezvous three times, twice at the old location and once at the new. First off, the new location is so much easier to park at and looks great, it seems less dingy than the old location. I’ve gone to Vanessa twice and really like her and the ambiance of Rendezvous. Previously I’d gone to Max the Salon in the Short North and Waldo’s on High and I just felt like both were a little too into themselves. the staff at Rendezvous are just good at what they do (and they do it all from normal cut and colors to extensions, dreadlock maintenance, etc) and no BS.
Plus I feel like the prices are much more reasonable for the kind of cuts I get–I am not super high maintenance with my hair, so I like feeling like a cut is a little pampering, but I don’t want to shell out big money. I think their fees are very reasonable and they are really involved in the community!
I just had my second haircut at Rendezvous and I am so happy I was referred to Vanessa Williamson. Not only did she give me a great haircut, but she recommended a new product that allows my fine hair to get the messy look I like without making it greasy or sticky. All the girls at the salon are fun and create a really cool environment. And they have a short cut rate so you don’t have to over pay for a haircut when you keep in tight!
Vanessa has been cutting my hair for 3 years now and I would recommend her and Rendezvous to anyone. She always listens to what I want and understands my hair type (very fine) Although she is always busy she tries to fit me in when I need an emergency bang trim. I can also recommend her skills as a colorist especially any type of highlights. I’m a fan!
I am a big fan of Rendezvous Hair Salon! I have been going for over a year. Vanessa is hands down the best stylist I have ever had, I will never let anyone else touch my hair. It is rare that you find someone who loves their job and takes pride in their work like she does. I had extensions done by Vanessa which were great they held up nice and I kept them in for several months, recently I had them taken out and let her do whatever she wanted and I can not begin to tell you how happy I am with my new color and cut, she is amazing!! The salon itself has a great atmosphere the people that work there seem to love what they do and they have great personalities. Although I have to drive quite a ways to get there, I will not go anywhere else!
I’m in love with this salon. Seriously the coolest decor, nicest staff and best hair around. I leave Vanessa’s chair feeling like magic has been performed. I won’t go anywhere else.
Vanessa is AMAZING! She is the only person who has ever cut my hair that did it exactly the way I want it. Everyone is so friendly and I feel so welcome there. I recommend this place and stylist to EVERYONE!!! If you don’t get your hair done here, YOU’RE missing out!
