So happy we found Wavelengths Salon! Carrie and Sherry are the sweetest ladies we have ever met. We are new to Durham and Carrie has washed and styled my hair and my daughters hair for the last 3 weeks. We are so blessed to have found her and Sherry. Sherry always has good tips on restaurants for us to try since we don't know where anything is.

William is amazing!! He is patient, helpful, laid back, and entertaining. And he can really cut a head of curly hair. Of course I would find a keeper right before moving away. I may make the three hour drive just to see him! No kidding. Kunita is a delight and does amazing color! I’m so pleased with my experience and so bummed that I found Wavelengths so late in the game!

I have always had outstanding service at Wavelengths. At my most recent appointment it was raining hard when I left, so they gave me an umbrella to use, and even offered to get my car for me!! Carrie, Sherry and all the rest are amazingly talented and personable.

This was my second visit with William. I brought my daughter as well. He was very thorough and courteous. I didn't feel rushed and it was just a pleasant experience. We both love our hair!

My experience at Wavelengths is always a positive one. I’ve been coming here at least once or twice a year for the past 10+ years. I have shoulder-length-to-long thick, curly hair that I sometimes like to wear straight - I’m learning to embrace the curl, as they say. William is a godsend for us curly haired folks; he knows just how to layer and cut to make me look my best. Not only does my hair look good when I get it cut, but it grows out nicely too, even when I go too long between cuts. He’s also just really personable and fun to talk with. I’ve seen Zuri in the past and she was excellent as well. The prices aren’t cheap, but they are worth it. Though never pressured to buy, the salon sells many high-end hair products, such as Bumble and Bumble, if you are looking to try something new.

Wavelengths is a fantastic salon - the space is beautiful and the staff are so friendly, personable, and talented. Carli was my stylist and she was so thorough and curled my hair so nicely at the end. Highly recommend!

Meghan is fantastic! Awesome head massage as she washed my hair, listened to my thoughts of how I wanted my hair cut, and took the time to give me a great cut and styled it before I left. She is friendly and attentive! Great experience!

Carrie is amazing!! Can’t say it enough. I drive 45 minutes to see her when I could go many places closer to me. 1. She listens. She makes sure I get exactly what I want, but also offers her helpful advice as a stylist. 2. She has great vision. When I’m sitting in her chair I feel confident she and I are on the same page and I know we have the same results in mind. 3. She is skilled. I have a very thick head of hair, and I’ve never had anyone be able to work through my head as neatly and quickly as she does. 4. She’s a great time. Sweet as can be and easy to talk to.

You'll get a great haircut here, but you'll certainly pay for it. Normal Men's cut runs for $40 before tip. A bit pricey for Durham, but still a great place.

Meghan was excellent! Took her time and really focused on me and my hair and what would look good. I'm very pleased with the cut. Extremely knowledgeable. The cost is slightly higher than other places, but I keep going back to Wavelengths! I have difficult curly hair thats not so curly in spots and Meghan really paid attention to that and did a nice job!

I finally splurged on a curly cut and it was so worth it! Kunita was amazing and did such a great job. I got the cut three weeks ago and haven’t had to detangle once since then. The salon is also taking great measures to protect their clients and staff with health protocols. Will 100% be back for my next cut!

Kunita always does an amazing job on my weird wavy hair! The salon is very clean, everyone wears masks. I felt safe going there.

William was great with my curly hair and first ever Ouidad cut. He was professional and understanding, answered all of my questions patiently and (most importantly) never me feel stupid for not knowing much about how to treat my hair. He made recommendations and showed me what to do at home. William is super knowledgeable and I left loving my hair!

I rely on wavelengths to give me and amazing hair cut and I’m satisfied every time I get mine done. They are very organized, safe, masks everywhere which is a good thing and good social distancing

Meghan is amazing!! She was able to give my lifeless, quarantine hair movement and shape again. I have curly hair that I wear both natural and blow-dried and it had gotten to a point where I had just lifeless waves hanging around me or extra-frizzy split ends. She completely turned it around! It changed my entire mood. My hair looks so good that even my boyfriend booked an appointment with her and he is super picky with his hairstylists. The salon overall was great following covid guidelines. Folks wait outside and get their temperature taken before entering the salon. Everyone must wear a mask while inside and the stylist's have their schedules staggered to make adequate space for social distancing. Bonus points: You can book appointments online! Finally, I want to note that some reviews mentioned that their prices are expensive, but I think it is extremely reasonable for the quality of the service. Don't get me wrong, it's not cheap, but it is definitely worth it!

Meghan was absolutely phenomenal. You can tell that she's truly present with you during your service. The head massage she provided during the shampoo was the best I've had and made me feel super relaxed. During the early quarantine days, I chopped my beautiful long hair off after learning we had to postpone our wedding. It was an awkward lob that was uneven on the sides and bulky in the back. Meghan was able to keep the length that I had and styled it to match the wavy texture of my natural hair. She also provided a couple of suggestions to accelerate the growth and achieve the look I want for a small wedding ceremony next month. Needless to say, I will be back and am already thinking about booking bayalage with her. Obviously, I highly recommend her without reservation. Wavelengths clearly is practicing CDC's recommendations to protect their customers from COVID-19. I witnessed multiple sanitation practices throughout my visit.

Kunita Kline is truly an amazing! My hair looked awful after a bad dye job and she was able to mix up a color that transformed it into my new favorite hair color! She always does a wonderful job cutting my hair as well and I trust her judgement completely as I know I will always leave feeling like a new person!

Hands down Meghan is the best stylist and colorist around. She has the creativity and the knowledge of her craft to know what style and color looks best on you. She’s has a modern, stylish glam to her which reflects in her work for any age. Thank you Meghan!!!

This is my 3rd haircut with Meghan and she did not disappoint. Her expertise, skill, creativity and precision are all top notch to make her a GREAT Hair EXPERT. Worth getting into see her!! I've had some bad haircuts in my day, and i am not going any where else.

Meghan is a star worth five stars! Great listener, gives feedback on the style you want, and does a beautiful blowout. Wavelengths is also doing a great job keeping things safe with covid. Happy all around :)

I've always loved this place, but updating my review after my first appointment during the COVID outbreak. I felt so safe. Thank you, Wavelengths! Temperature taken outside. All employees and customers masked (sometimes even face shielded). Distance precautions being followed. Meghan even sanitized the wash station before returning to her booth for my cut. I greatly appreciate the efforts you all are taking to keep everyone safe and healthy. As always, I highly recommend Meghan. She's so lovely to talk to. As someone who never knows what she wants, Meghan always manages beautiful results both in cut and color for me. I highly value that she is honest with me about what will work with my hair, suit my face, and what styles we both know I'm not going to put the effort into making happen every morning! Thanks Meghan!

Meghan was fantastic. I haven’t been to a salon since March and was undecided if to continue letting my gray hair grow out. Meghan, thankfully convinced me not to go down that road. My hair is very fine, curly in front, pin straight in back. She fully explained how we could color my several colors to a beautifully blended shade. The cut and styling were the very best. Thank you Meghan! PS: Covid safe procedures could not have been better, I felt safe and protected the entire time at Wavelengths.

I had my first haircut with Hayley yesterday. She was very thorough and professional. I was impressed with her attention to detail and really understanding what would work with my hair. It is probably one of the best haircuts I’ve had in years! I live in Raleigh but will definitely come back to her. The salon was very clean and safe. Upon arrival my temperature was checked and I was given hand sanitizer. I waited in an isolated area and the staff was diligent with disinfecting areas after each use.

Wavelengths saved my prom day. The day of my prom the salon I had booked months ahead of time told me they couldn’t do my hair or makeup because they were overbooked and they didn’t have makeup for my skin-tone. In a panicked hurry and honestly on the verge of tears I called every salon in the area to no avail. Then lastly I called Wavelengths. They saved me. They told me it was going to be alright and that they would stay overtime to make time for me. The staff was so professional and kind, having a plethora of makeup products.
