Nice spot with a lot of business. I'm usually not picky with my hair but Elyse asked the right questions to ensure I left happy. She made me realize the difference between someone who is a professional and someone who just cuts hair. Plus the price for a cut is very reasonable
Teela was AMAZING! She was extremely helpful, answered any questions, was attentive and responsive. She was very aware of her client's needs and desired look. She gave my friend the absolute best haircut and color fit for him. 10/10 would recommend this salon!
Lighten up is by far the only place I will go to! Ever since I moved to Budd Lake, I've been going to Melissa and she is the best! She is so sweet and so personable and makes my hair cutting experience enjoyable! There are many reasons why I return back to lighten up. Everyone is so nice, the salon is so big and so clean, and the atmosphere is great!
Lighten Up has been my go-to place for over ten years. The staff are very kind and courteous, but I always make my appointments with Kinga. She's a ROCKSTAR!
Yesterday I visited and it had been a few months since I cut or colored my hair - the ends were damaged, straggly grays, bleh. Kinga and her daughter Nikki did an amazing job with this fall color and cut...I absolutely love it!
If you're looking for a place to get pampered, this is it. I can't recommend them highly enough.
I have been going there for over 5 years and I love going there. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. I go for a haircut about every 5-6 weeks and my hair always looks super. VERY nice place .I would DEFINATELY recommend.
I had Ashley C. Transform my waist length hair from ugly brown and brassy to absolutely GORGEOUS!! I have never been so satisfied in my life. I highly recommend this salon to anyone who wants the best for their hair!
Always a great experience. Karlee my esthetician was awesome and super helpful. Rebecca my nail tech was wonderful. I've had my hair done by a few of the hair stylists and it's always come out amazing. And everyone is always so welcoming.
LOVE this place. Have been coming here for years and have had many different stylists. It is sometimes difficult to book my favorite stylist without a few weeks notice, but she does such a great job I don't mind. Out of all the times I have gone there, the only negative I can say is one stylist didn't take "just a little off" for my trim - she chopped off much more than I asked, but again, very clean place, friendly staff and prices are reasonable - mid range. You don't be disappointed!
LOVE Mary! She does fabulous work and has been my go to girl for years!!! She also recommended Casey to me when she wasn't available and I LOVED her too!! Sometimes it's tough to choose who I want to see! I always get complimented when i'm walking out by other clients!
One of the best in the area. Nice and clean inside. Brenda was absolutely wonderful. She basically gave me whole new do from her suggestions and incorporated what I wanted as well. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. I will absolutely be returning for her services. Everyone was very professional and the prices were reasonable!
Absolutely love love love this salon. The staff is super accommodating and my stylist Kelly does a fab job with my cut and color. Pricing is very fair and all charges explained when consultation is done. I travel about 45 mins to get to Lighten Up but I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.
What isn't to love about this place? I mean really. Everyone who has done my hair is Amazing - Rae is my favorite!! She takes her time to listen and really to give me the exact look I want - even if I change it every time. The spa services - these are by far my fav!! Heather is a great message therapist, Basha gives the best pedicure (even for those of us that are super ticklish). Everyone has a smile on their face - whether your the first or last appointment of the day! Oh now they have standing appointments - they really look to make you happy!
Went there for the first time for a color and cut and couldn't be more pleased. The staff and my stylist, Kinga, were absolutely the best. I am definitely making this salon my "go to" place. I recommend it highly.
Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Prices are very reasonable, compared to other salons and you still get quality. Love that they offer coupons for mani/pedis, which are so reasonable.
I love Lighten Up! I have been a regular there for the last few years for both hair and mani/pedis. I get nothing but compliments on my hair, thanks to the fabulous work of Bobbie and Little Michele! Everywhere I go, people say how wonderful my hair looks - both color and cut! And Basia, my mani/pedi goddess, is such a delight - she takes customer service to a new level!
Michelle is an excellent stylist. I have been going to her for quite a while. I always receive compliments about my hair from friends as well as strangers. She styles my hair the way I request her to. I am always happy with it when she is done. She is a friendly nice person. I do recommend her when people ask me where I get my hair done.
Michelle listened to all my concerns and what I wanted for myself. She was professional and knowledgeable as always. I feel amazing !
Shout out also to assistant Nikki!
I was recommended by a friend - I'm always hesitant to try a new salon. The entire experience was perfect. From color correction to highlights to cut and blow out ... I was so pleased. Thank you Chelsea and Mario for all the time and effort. My hair is perfect. The best base color ... so natural that I can ever remember.
Elyse was so great! I showed her pictures of the cut and color I wanted, and the end result was perfect! Better than I imagined! She also was very good at explaining the processes and the products used. She is super sweet and I adore her!
I will never go to another stylist but Paige! She takes the time to listen to you and find out what your expectation is of your color and cut , What do you like about the color? Do you stye your hair everyday?. She pays attention to detail and the end result is always nothing short of magical! I always get tons of compliments about her work.
Loved my experience at Lighten Up! Rae was bubbly and personable, and she gave me some options of things I could try with my hair when I wasnt sure what to do. I ended up getting partial highlights and she blended them into my older color perfectly. Lighten Up has coffee and tea available to customers in the waiting area, so I got myself a cup of coffee while the bleach was in my hair. Rae really took her time to make sure everything was done right, and when she finished cutting my hair, she styled it in a super cute way. My hair now looks awesome! She was also very upfront with the pricing of everything so there were no surprises at the end when I paid my bill. Thanks Rae! I am definitely coming back. 😀
I really loved my hair appointment with Ashley. The color and trim are beautiful too. I look forward to returning to her with my next appointment. She truly understood my hair type, the products she used just enhanced the hair type I have. I am actually waiting for the order to arrive in the store to purchase. She was fab. People are asking me where did you go, it's beautiful.....Lighten Up, her name is Ashley!
Jessica was excellent... She listened exactly to what I was saying. She explained the whole process in the beginning as well as throughout, so I knew what she was doing and why she felt it was necessary. She took her time, and my hair cut and color looks amazing! I would highly recommend her as a stylist!
I so love Jess she is understanding in what I want my hair to look like. She has a very pleasant personality and unloved when i see cause I know I am being taken care of the way I should be. Thank you for all she does for. I know that I am always in good hands.
I have been going to Lisa for awhile now. I am extremely pleased with her services and her advice. She is professional yet very friendly and makes every appointment an excellent experience!!
Everyone at Lighten Up is so friendly and accommodating. Kinga is a sweetheart who listens to what you want and makes suggestions, then executes it perfectly. Thank you!
I feel so blessed that Patti does my hair. Her skills are immense. She is family to so many individuals. I come in looking haggard but because Patti has such vast skills I become transformed into a beauty. What a wonderful woman she is indeed. I hope Lighten Up appreciates her as much as I do. Well done Patti, you are amazing.
Ashley is amazing!! I just absolutely love the colors she chose for my hair!! Very talented young lady! Very professional!! I just love her!!
Melanie was very likable, and more importantly was very experienced and understood my hair issues quickly and came up with a good recommendation. I love my cut.
She is fabulous with my 10, 7 and 2 year old. I trust her judgement and trust that every hairstyle is going to be just what we want. She did an awesome job putting a small strip of color in each of my 2 girls hair. Nothing crazy just a little amount for both my daughters and I to be happy!
