I had a great experience here! My hair cut with Amanda was so easy and she made me feel so beautiful and comfortable the whole time. When I told her I was interested in coloring my hair for the first time, she got me set up for an appointment with Mashaal. Mashaal was so wonderful! I explained to them that I was nervous about coloring my hair and how I didn’t know exactly what I wanted. They were so kind and explained everything she was doing and made sure I was comfortable the whole time! They made me feel so beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for better results! I will definitely be back!

I have been seeing Suzanne for a few years now and she does beautiful, natural looking blonde work! I showed up with damaged hair from a bad color job and years of bleaching. She was able to correct and greatly improve my color and get my hair looking and feeling healthy again. All of this without me having to give up bleaching. I highly recommend her!!!

Laurie truly has a gift. I have spent most of my life fighting or trying to figure out how to care and “style” my curly, wavy.. crazy hair. Years of triangle shape , cotton ball puff, heat abuse.. who knows how much money wasted on frizz control products. For years I hated my hair and would throw it in a bun to hide it. For the 1st time in my life, I can say I absolutely LOVE my hair! Laurie has taught me how to care for my hair. She takes the time, effort to cut it so I can wear it curly. Former stylist would always straighten my hair and cut it as if I did straighten it, even though I would never wear my hair this way. I love my hair and am so grateful to have found Laurie! The salon is bright, friendly and inviting. To all my crazy curly haired peeps.. go see Laurie! Even if your hair is straight… go see her! My hair has never been more healthy , shiny and frizz free! My hair color is beautiful! Thank you Laurie!

This was my first time visiting and I’m really impressed. I think my stylist, Kales, did a great job. It was a major cut for me and she suggested framing my face instead of bangs. I think it was a good choice! Friendly people. I recommend.

I absolutely love this place and am so happy my coworker recommended it to me! I use Liz for my haircuts and she's just so knowledgeable. I had gotten a balayage at a different salon previously and it had made my hair very dry and brittle because that stylist hadn't told me how to keep my hair type (very fine but thick) healthy. Liz explained that I was over washing it which was leading to all the issues I was having. I've been going to her for months now and she makes sure the cut I'm getting works for how I style my hair but also ensures I know how to take care of it when I leave to keep it healthy. I really appreciate how safe they are being during the pandemic because I can get my hair done without worrying about infecting my family with covid. Getting your hair done should be something relaxing that you do for yourself so I love still getting to have that experience even with the pandemic going on. I truly appreciate and love this salon and thank you Liz for all you do!

I absolutely love RPS, especially Laurie! I have been going there for haircuts and coloring for over five years, and I always leave satisfied and excited about my hair. Laurie has always listened to what I’m looking for in my haircut and offered super helpful suggestions to make it better and more manageable. She recently sent me a picture of a haircut she thought would be good for me, and we did it. Not only do I love the look, but I cherish the friendship I have with Laurie. It’s always wonderful to see her, to catch up, and to play with my haircuts and color. I love my short haircuts from Laurie & RPS. I feel truly grateful to have found such a wonderful salon that is welcoming, caring, and excited about their clients. I am constantly recommending RPS and will continue to do so. ❤️

There's a lot to love about RPS (the clean, comfortable, attractive space; the friendly staff, relatively reasonable prices and parking validation for the garage right across the street) but KALES is the absolute best part! She knows just what to do to ensure my thick, coarse hair --some have called it a "force"-- always looks cute and current. This is no small feat, especially since I favor short, trendy/edgy styles that NOT all stylists can do well. Kales patiently listens, but also shares her professional insight about what will work best for my hair. Her color work is impeccable too. Love her. Love RPS.

Had a cut with Michael this week and it was so great! He was so friendly and easy to talk to and I absolutely loved my cut. I didn't have much direction to give him on what I wanted and he was extremely helpful in guiding me on what would look best. I was comfortable asking for a minor tweak at the end and he was so chill about it which is not always the case. He also only charges $45 which is a steal. Highly highly recommend him!

Today was my first visit to to Rock Paper Scissors and it will not be the last.. Suzanne was amazing. She really listened to me and the challenge of fine hair. My hair looks great and I am thrilled to have found my people. Salon is funky, cute, clean and has a great atmosphere. Looking forward to seeing uizanne and Rock Paper Scissors in a few months!!

Kara always gives me the best cut of my life!!! And I am SO Happy she came up with a solution to blend and camouflage my quarantine grown out gray at the top of the beautiful biolage blonde and brown color I have in my hair that she had done for the past few years. I have very long hair and the glaze she used to blend me was just the ticket. SO pleased and excited with my new look!!!

I've seen Allie several times and highly recommend! I love how she walks me though each step of the process, keeping me in the loop and informed of her ideas and reasons for each. It helps me feel included on what is actually being done to my hair! She is great at checking in and making sure I am happy with the results, even if that is tweaking things at the last minute. I have never felt intimidated in being honest about making changes, where I have with other stylists. Go see her!

I have thick curly hair that I've never had in a short style before, but Abigail did an incredible job with it! She took time to really consult with me and figure out what I wanted, and then walked me through how it would look before starting the haircut. I felt very comfortable and love the end result! Would highly reccomend this salon and Abigail.

If there were more stars to choose I would! I wanted to try out a new salon and was initially going in to get a full balayage. After talking with Michael about what my goal is for my hair he actually recommended I do foils instead because it’ll help me achieve the look I’m going for… boy was he right! I left the salon with the blonde hair I’ve been dreaming of, I felt like a whole new me and I couldn’t be happier. I will definitely be scheduling again with Michael!!
