Laveau is rated 5.0 out of 5 stars, based on 18 reviews!
I have been going here since they were out near Bartlett, on Whitten. I am a HUGE fan. My personal favorite stylist is Erica, who is also a friend. However, if she were unavailable or out- i wouldn't hesitate to go to any of the ladies there. Their environment is super chill, the stylists are very friendly and make it feel like home. Very reasonable pricing and the owner, Kara, is absolutely the sweetest. If you are looking for a new salon in the midtown area, i urge you to try Laveau. They are guaranteed to have someone who can get you the result you are looking for. Short styles, long styles, crazy and toned down colors, men and women and all that's in-between. Also also; i love that they have an annual fundraiser called "Lafleu" that helps them collect feminine hygiene products to donate for homeless and disadvantaged women who would otherwise not have access:)
On the rare occasion when I actually drop the money for highlights in my hair, I usually get a Groupon and go to some random place in spite of reviews. Sometimes this works in my favor. Often not.
This time I went to Laveau based on the photos and reputation among friends. This was absolutely the right choice. Erica did my partial highlights. I was just going for a subtle beachy glow. She nailed it. I've had so many compliments from everyone: coworkers, friends, strangers. I'm absolutely in love with my hair.
I love love love Laveau! I have been a client of Kara's for about a year and a half and I always leave her chair feeing like a pretty pink princess. When I first decided to go pink, I booked online and Kara sent me a text asking what I was looking for so she could be prepared when I walked in the door. Over the last year and a half, I have gone from baby pink ends to hot pink root to tip hair and Kara has been incredible every step of the way.
I absolutely trust my hair in her hands - she can turn any vague idea into a work of art. I send everyone who shows a remote interest in my hair to Laveau - you absolutely cannot go wrong with any stylist there.
TL;DR: go to Laveau because Brooke is a color wizard.
I don't really have an established salon so I mostly go to a new one every time. But I think I found one to stick with!
About a year ago, I dyed my ash-blonde hair to box black. 6 months ago, I went to another salon to have the color rinsed out.The other salon could only rinse it to a very dark brown and eventually my hair color started to look splotchy. I decided to go to Laveau after seeing their great work and I am so glad I did. My wonderful stylist BROOKE did an amazing job! I showed her 3 pictures in 3 different lights where my hair looked different in each one but she pulled it all together. She got it EXACTLY right. I went in with no consult and it took about 6 hours. Those 6 hours flew by relatively quickly because Brooke is super sweet, super friendly, and all the other stylists are too. She was able to fix my terrible hair while making sure she stayed within my budget. I immediately made another appointment for a haircut. Laveau & Brooke are great and you should definitely go.
Came here about a week ago for the first time and the girls were so lovely. The environment is so chill and it felt like I had met them before! Kara did my hair and she was so kind and patient while working, over 6 hours of work (bleaching, dying etc) and she didnt rush and explained every step really well...she made sure that i got all my hair needs (and wants) and i came out of there with some beautiful vivids and haircut that i was happy with! My hair feels so healthy even after all the bleaching and dye! I wish i can give them more than 5 stars, i wear a hijab for religious reasons and the girls were soo kind as to make sure that no males entered and were so enthusiastic to be able to give me a full salon experience which is really hard to find for girls who cover.
Great people, reasonable prices and a relaxed atmosphere. Both myself and my wife have had our hair cut by Erica recently and both really happy with the service. If you're looking for stylists that know their trade, definitely pay the ladies at Laveau a visit!
I had my hair done by Erica. Not only did she give me the best haircut of my life, but she also gave me the color of my DREAMS. I wanted desperately to have purple, blue, and green hair, and she hooked me up! Unfortunately, I only had the pleasure of meeting Erica and Kara today. But they're both lovely, hilarious, warm people who made me feel at home the very moment that I walked through the door. I've found my salon, and I'm not going anywhere else.
I wish I had known about this adorable, kitschy, gorgeous little shop from the moment they opened last December. I would have been spared many a hair disaster and I would have saved a ton of cash.
Rosy, you are forever in my debt for letting me in on this spot. I am so glad you said just choose whoever and that I ended up getting the sweet and vibrant Megan to do my hair. It was a match of fate. If I believed in fate that is...I would most certainly say that it brought us together. (We are both cat people.)
I went in with tons of hope. When I made the appointment I expressed my concern over the process that it might take to take out the red from my hair. Megan asked lots of questions and prepared me for the worst possible outcome which would be two appointments and price point of $100. That seemed perfectly reasonable. A steal in fact considering I paid more than that for people to ruin my hair. She also assured me they were very kid friendly.
So when I went in, the eternal pessimist in me said, "You are about to be miserable for two appointments and your hair will still look like crap." Well my inner "Squidward" was changed into a "Spongebob." I actually hugged Megan in a sudden burst of uncontrolled joy when I saw my final result.
She didn't make my hair look outstanding with a bunch of colors or a difficult cut. She made me look like myself again! And that was harder than it sounds. She managed to put a one process color on me that cut all that red out and give me the perfect length of a haircut all in 3 hours. Plus the price was worth travelling out of my way plus more!
I could fangirl talk about the decor, the music, the gorgeous women who work here...but I don't want to give it away. It's a wonderful experience. Make an appointment now! I want to keep these girls in business!!!
This is, hands down, the best salon in Memphis, particularly if you're interested in fun, new color trends and vivids.
I've been seeing the owner Kara and stylist Kelly since when Laveau was still a dream of Kara's, and being able to witness her goals and accomplishments as a business owner whilst continually growing as a stylist and hiring an amazing crew of diverse stylists unfold before my eyes has been inspiring.
Laveau specializes in such a variety of niches from vivids and trendy coloring styles, to traditional cut and styling, o ethnic hair styling and coloring. Truly a cohesive, well-rounded salon experience for anyone.
The atmosphere is incredible, as it is inspired by Voodoo queen of New Orleans, Marie Laveau, and has a delightfully cute witchy aesthetic.
And as far as quality of service and being happy with your results as a customer I have a few things to say... these ladies are absolutely willing to work with you to create whatever hair fantasy you have. If you have expectations, MAKE THEM CLEAR. If you are unsatisfied, COMMUNICATE! A stylist can't read your mind and only knows if you're unhappy if you tell them. If you're unhappy they will do absolutely whatever within their power to make it right, but of course you must let them know and give them that chance to make it right! :)
Just my two cents :)!
Natalie is amazing! My color correction was intense to say the least and she was knowledgeable and informative through out the whole process. She kept the integrity of my hair and gave me a final result that I am absolutely in love with! Over the course of two days I met all the wonderful gals at the salon and all of them are extremely talented and just good people. Natalie you're amazing and thank you again so much for finally making my hair gorgeous!
A perfect experience, cut and style. Everyone is so polite and their professionalism is unmatched.
They are by appointment only, but their service is fantastic. I'm incredibly picky about who I let style my hair, and I can say they rewarded the faith I put into them. Can't wait to go back for my next appointment!
They are by appointment only, but the service is amazing! Wouldn't want to get my hair done anywhere else! Highly recommend.
Fantastic service. Kara and her team are so incredibly talented, not to mention sweet. The Studio is the cutest, most comfortable salon I have experienced yet. Love every variation of every color, cut, and style I've had done here. Laveau has the feel of going to your best friends' house, where you're envious of everything they own.
This salon is as unique as the talent found inside it. The Laveau staff is friendly and knowledgable in all thing beauty. I always leave beyond happy with my hair and my time spent there.
Absolutely love this salon! Kara does AMAZING work, she is so talented!! Whenever I leave my hair feels awesome!
Lavaeu is a very unique salon located between Cordova and Bartlett on Whitten. The uniqueness continues with each stylist there. I get my hair cut, colored, and styled by Kara. She and her team are fabulous and extremely talented. They can tackle your basic hair needs or do something crazy and spunky. Whatever you are looking for, they work with you and are beyond friendly. The quality of the end results is worth what you pay. Also, the prices are extremely reasonable. I highly recommended booking an appointment with any of the ladies there!
I had an absolute amazing experience at this new salon in Bartlett. Kara is very professional and also friendly. I like hair stylists that make you forget you're sitting in a chair for some odd hours of the day. All the ladies at this salon are so kind and welcoming too. She made my hair feel brand new again even though it's been through a ton! I highly recommend checking them out if you are looking for a great place to relax and get your hair done. Quality work is DEFINITELY here!
