Not a good experience. I found that my experience at Cheveux was very unpleasant. I was told that Cheveux is a place for artists to collaborate and express their creativity. To me, the people here are educated very well. The haircuts were nice too (on the surface at least). The location is nice (not to mention the style is unique). But the lighting was poor and the temperature was often cold. The TV had a very negative tv show playing (Maury?), not to mention the music was either about sex or loneliness. The atmosphere, as well as the stylists, made me uncomfortable. The biggest issue that I had was their inability to communicate or listen. I felt as if my experience wasn't about me. I am curious to know, as another individual's comment did, if all of these five star reviews were by friends trying to help out the business. Cheveux will not get my business, nor will I recommend anyone to them.
I recommend Anna.
I have been trying several different salons around Grand Rapids for about 5 years. I am so happy to have found Anna! I have just been to her once but was so excited to have a stylist give me ideas about what to do with my hair. I know suggesting what I want is helpful, but they are the experts, not me.
I do have to agree with some of the reviews...I didn't get a Chicago or New York feel from the place. I have been to salons in both cities and it doesn't really compare. However, I am not looking for Chicago/NYC, I can be and I can get stylish hair cuts in GR. Thanks anna :)
I made an appointment at Cheveux based a great deal on these reviews, which I realize in hindsight are most likely written by Cody and his 'girls' at Cheveux and a few close, personal friends. The ambiance of the salon is fine, but not 'big city chic' like all the reviews rave about. There are definitely nicer salons in GR. The lighting is also very poor in the salon, so you don't really know what you've got until you get into the daylight.
I went in for a cut/color with Cody. He is a very nice man and seemed very articulate, educated and intelligent about his work - the actual execution of his knowledge failed. He told me he was going to give me a 'whole new look'! And knew 'exactly what he was going to do!' 41/2 hours and just shy of $200 later, what I got was orange hair and a 'trim'. My new 'look' is horrendous and now I'll be paying another $200 for a color correction and an actual hair cut at another salon.
Exceptional Salon!. I recently visited this salon after seeing it on Maranda's tv show. I was initially put on a waiting list when I called, but to my luck and the bad weather lately a cancellation allowed me to get an appointment. My immediate response when I walked in the door was "WOW!" The place has such a modern look but still so amazingly inviting and homey. I must say the holiday decorations were probably without a doubt the coolest I have ever seen. The place felt so alive. Cody greeted me and did my hair that day. What a skillful man. We started completely from scratch and I got a brand new look. I am so thankful for all the great service and have felt like a million bucks ever since. I get numerous compliments everyday! Thanks to Maranda I have finally found the master of grand rapids. I'll be back soon and will bring all my friends!
Best haircut experience I've ever had!.
I was a little worried about getting my hair cut since I've always had long, frizzy, and wavy hair but as soon as I stepped in I was hooked! The atmosphere is relaxing and cheerful and you feel right at home. Anna was super friendly and talked me through each step she was doing so that I could do it at home as well. She gave me a cut and style that I could wear in a variety of ways (both straight and curly) and that l looked great on me.
What REALLY did it for me was the fact that I asked about making an appointment to wax my eyebrows but she did it right then and there for me even though we were running late. Best service I've ever gotten and I'm going to keep going there as long as I live near G.R. Thanks Anna!
Tops in hair coloring and kindness.
I've been going to one of the most expensive hair salons in the grand rapids area for three years. My sister came from out of state to visit and pointed out (in horror) that my hair was bleached white in the front and colored brassy yellow in the back (I knew, thank you very much...) She found Cody and Cheveaux on Citysearch for me. I felt very nervous about going to a salon I'd never heard about. But last week,I went anyway. The visit became one of the most pleasurable, satisfying and nurturing experiences I've had in years.
I had booked a two-hour appointment. After he saw the state of my hair, Cody patiently took the five hours needed to restore my hair to sanity. By the end of the visit he brought my hair back to the blonde color I had as a child. He said, "I don't want someone to see you and say, 'what a great dye job.' I want them to see you and say, 'your have such great hair.' " And it is. It looks perfectly natural and beautiful. He also analyzed my face and bone structure and gave me a cut that's sophisticated and classic and still works with my extremely active life.
But even better than the unbelieveably good color and cut I received from him was his graciousness and kindness during the visit. I came to the appointment tense, worried, and rushed. I left happy, calm and confident. More than my hair was restored.
I recommend just be sure you know where it is!. I just went to Cheveux tonight and have to say that it is refreshing in this day and age to find service like I received from Janis. Point of information: CHEVEUX HAS MOVED. Their new address is 968 Cherry St. They are no longer on Wealthy. Due to not knowing this (as I got the address off of this site) I was a good thirty minutes late. Janis waited for me, took her time with me and never made me feel uncomfortable for having kept her. Not only that I love the haircut. Best one that I have had in years. Classy little joint. Thanks so much Janis.
Jayme and Cheveux. I have never had a better expierence than my first visit to Cheveux. For the past two years I have tried several different salons, and for the fist time I found the perfect fit for me. Jayme really listened to me and nailed the look I have been trying to get for years. My color is amazing and my haircut was the best I've ever had! I have a very busy schedule and making appointments before I leave a salon never happens. When I left Cheveux, I scheduled my next two appointments to make sure I would be able to get in with Jayme. The salon has this old world atmosphere and one of the most beautiful candle-lit shampoo rooms I've ever seen. I will be talking about Cheveux to everyone
My boyfriend and I are very particular about our hair and especially about who we trust to style it. After moving to Grand Rapids from Denver, we had a hard time finding a salon where we really "connected" with the stylist and where we were confident in the service we were getting.
I jumped on Citysearch and found out about Cody at Cheveux. I called him and expressed our concerns about the service we'd been getting and told him of the rave reviews I was reading on Citysearch. He assured me that the reviews were true so I scheduled our first appointment.
I couldn't be more pleased with the care Cody has given us. Not only did he do a great job on our cuts, he has also been a good friend to us as we've tried to make Grand Rapids "home."
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending that you give Cheveux a try - you will NOT be disappointed!
Perfectionner!!. I live in Strasbourg, France and have been coming to Grand Rapids often for business. I used citysearch to find a salon here because with all my traveling I was desperate and just haven't had time to have my hair done at home. Being french, I was interested by this salon because it's name is french. I couldn't be happier. My hair was in need of help and Cody really went above and beyond my expectations. These reviews really don't lie, he is a master. I will definitely see him again the next time I visit.
