I had the best haircare experience! Tabby took her time to really understand what I wanted and even got out a color book to show me the colors she was using! I brought my four year old daughter in an tabby did not short her any experience for her age! She still got a great head rub for a shampoo and styled out! We loved it! I was impressed that my daughter got a discounted cut for my referral of my own daughter! So exited to have found a quality salon that I can afford for myself and my family!
I love the atmosphere at Akada and I love the expertise I receive from Mackenzie Myers! She actively listens to what I need and offers suggestions if I'm not sure. Every time Mackenzie does my hair it looks and feels wonderful! She is very knowledgeable and she takes pride and is meticulous in her work. Mackenzie genuinely cares that I am satisfied. I would highly recommend Mackenzie for any of your hair care needs!
First, Angel is wonderful at supporting her stylists in innovation, education, and the science of hair. Second, John is an exceptional stylist not only providing a great cut but also providing a positive experience. He is kind, courteous, and a joy to have cut my hair. Third, everyone in the studio is nice! How often do you find that anywhere today. Check them out. My hairstyle is a reflection of my personal brand, I drive over an hour for Akada to help me brand me!
Love this salon! Excellent staff, professional service and modern atmosphere. I've been going to Arlene for several years. She always impresses with flattering cut and color. I had long hair and wanted a change! Arlene gave me a shorter style that complemented my features.
I am a long time client of the Akada Salon and stylist Tammy. The level of skill, talent and mastery of the stylists at Akada is second to none. I feel confident asking Tammy or any of the stylists to size me up and help me find the best look. I tell everyone that Tammy is a hair magician! She knows my limits and knows that once at home I want little to no effort fixing my hair before I go out the door in the morning. She gets me!
I like how committed Akada is to the community and dedicated they are to their clients.
If you are unsure of a direction to go with your style, they will guide you to the best look for you! I love the overall feel of Akada. After a visit I leave feeling renewed and refreshed.
Based on the great reviews I made an appt here when my former stylist decided to leave the business. I was not disappointed. Elyse was extremely meticulous and was awesome about helping me figure out what to do with my hair when I had absolutely no idea. She's very knowledgeable and talented. I can't wait to go back :)
Keep in mind that you can't put tips on your credit card. They do have an ATM, but if you don't want to pay fees, be prepared.
Love this place. My hair has never looked so good. All the stylist are very professional. They start off with a consultation, ask what you like and what you don't like about your hair, and at the end, they explain how to style it properly. My appointments have always started on time which is usually a pet peeve of mine at other salons, where they are running behind.
I see Holly and she does an amazing job! She always makes my hair look perfect and the products smell really good
So happy I found this place after moving to Columbus a year ago. Love Elyse! She's so talented and takes her time. I made my husband start going to her as well and now our one year old son! Prices are great and I also love the Davines products.
Love my stylist Amanda, she does everything the exact way I want great cuts and color is alwAys on point. The staff are always friendly and helpful!!!
Best haircut I've ever had! I highly recommend Kristen as a stylist!
Mackenzie Myers does my hair and she's wonderful and my hair always looks amazing! I'm so pleased with the results and the two colors she adds to my hair! I always get lots of compliments and my hair feels silky. If you want a great pampering experience and a stylist who really cares and takes time with you, you'll love Mackenzie! She's the best!
I love akada hair salon!! Every time it is so warm and welcoming. I love the tea and candy and coffee options that are given to me. But the best part- TABBY!! Tabby is the BEST hair stylist. Every crazy hair idea I have- she makes it a reality and it's PRETTIER than I ever even imagined it would be. Thank you tabby for making my hair dreams come true.
Tammy at Akada performed an absolute miracle on my hair and I am forever grateful and thrilled. It was butchered nearly to complete annihilation by another salon...which I narrowly escaped from when they were pretending to "fix" it, and that is how I ended up seeking out Tammy. She did a color and cut that was out of this world and she is absolutely a true natural who knew intuitively exactly what to do. She explained everything to me, always responding to my incessant questioning, and she was super open and communicative as well. Some hair genius folk can be pushy or weird and Tammy was neither, just because she's a master of her trade. Tammy rules, so thank you to her and to the salon.
Will never go to another salon! Love Akada!
The place to be... ALWAYS DEPENDABLE.. TALENTED and PROFESSIONAL STAFF.. THE BEST SALON IN COLUMBUS!
I had a great experience here today. I was treated like a guest and my stylist listened to me and delivered an excellent result. I just got a cut and style. Scheduling was easy. They kept things very tidy and clean.
Note - Prepare to tip in cash.
Always good service. Had my bangs cut a bit short a few times but then again I'm pretty picky about them. My old complaint is that it takes forever for someone to answer the phone most of the time. Would for sure recommend this as a place to go.
Love their customer service! When I go in I feel like they make everyone feel so special!
Professional staff. Beautiful salon. Stylists are always on time for their appointments - no waiting. Stylists take time to listen and understand your needs/wants beforehand. Stylists are knowledgeable on their products and offer great advice on which products will work best for your hair type. I recommend Tabbetha (Tabby), however I believe all the stylists are great.
