Marc Alan Salon and Day Spa is the perfect place to go for EVERYTHING. I personally see Caley for hair, Keri for facials and waxings and Demetra for nails. Every technician knows exactly what they're doing and are very professional. It is definitely a great salon with great owners and staff! They certainly have my vote!!

Marc Alan is the Best!! I recently had the full day spa experience (my 1st ever!) I started with a 90 min. hot stone massage with Angela, a jet peel facial with Christine and I came home with the newest Bare Minerals makeup... Awesome!! I've already scheduled my next spa day with an ultimate pedicure too!!

Marc Alan is a very warm and comforting environment, everyone is friendly, great place!!

Marc Alan is such a great salon!! I go to Chrissy to get color, cuts and blowdrys, She is really down earth and keeps up with the styles and colors and makes you walk out feeling 100% better! Definitely the stylist and salon to go to!!!

Heath at Marc Alan is my new go to guy for a quick and accurate trim and a great laugh to boot! Marc Alan has always been my hair salon of choice since 2005, and now I have a new favorite stylist!
Liese A Ricketts April 06, 2012 at 02:17 AM
Sharon at Marc Alan is the BOMB! She understands curly hair, which few stylists know how to cut, and is extremely professional!!
Diane King April 06, 2012 at 02:29 PM
You cannot go wrong with any of the professional stylists at Jonathan Kane. However, Angela works miracles every time and her scalp and neck massage are incredible. She is amazing with trends and more "mature" styling needs.
Deborah Terrell April 06, 2012 at 03:15 PM
Heath at Marc Alan is great!! I always leave with a smile and beautiful hair. I am a faithful Marc Alan customer and Heath sealed the deal. If you want a relaxing facial schedule an appointment with Keri or see her for your summer waxing needs
Geri Melyon April 06, 2012 at 04:11 PM
Customer Service, Passion, Commitment and Caring....That describes all the Service Providers Who work for Marc and I. I am so proud of each and every one of them. They have even on their own arranged to do a cut a thon for MS April 22 because one of our Loyal Guests has MS and they want science to find a cure for her. Thank You Staff. You are Great!

I've been going to Marc Alan for years. It is a wonderful salon. Heath does amazing hair!
Cindy April 06, 2012 at 07:58 PM
I love going to Marc Alan Salon.....a wonderful place to unwind and relax. Kerra is a dedicated professional hair stylist who goes the extra mile to make your visit awesome. In addition, if you want a wonderful relaxing pedicure Young is the person to see. Both Kerra and Young do an amazing work.
Alice Gaus April 06, 2012 at 09:57 PM
Stephanie at Artistix is an excellent stylist and colorist. The salon is relaxing and the staff is professional. A great experience.
Jan M. April 06, 2012 at 10:34 PM
Everywhere I go I explain the type of style I want...but I never get it. I am looking for long layers that feather back on an angle going downward. When my cut is complete, I wind up with a chopped up mess that angles the opposite way! I don't know if I am making myself clear so I will just ask...does anyone remember Farah Fawcett? Kinda like that cut. I need someone to fix my chopped up mess! Help!
Mrs King April 07, 2012 at 02:13 AM
I love Marc Alan for the massage and the bikini wax, I have not had a chance to try any of the stylist yet.

I started going to Marc Alan about 15 years ago --- I have naturally curly hair and it's always been difficult to control and maintain in a hair style. I was fortunate enough to find not just one, but several, amongst the stylists, that seemed more than willing to deal with my hair (had not always been the case in my experiences). Ultimately, I had by hair done by a somewhat recent graduate of hair design schooling, who, really took control over my hair -- needless, to say, I was quite pleased. I also, over time, used other services, such as half-hour massages, etc. I encouraged my daughter to go there and she does. Yes, there is Chrissy, Kerra(sp?), Daniel, and a number of others, as well as estheticians, masseurs, and others, whose names I don't recall, to help you with your various needs, including make-up training. Most important, it is a comfortable environment! You can REALLY feel relaxed.

I have been going to Marc Alan for 15 years. I drive past 6 salons to get there, never thinking of going anywhere else. The treatment you receive from the moment you arrive is exceptional. My stylist Heather Blashill is truly a perfectionist. When I sit in her chair, I'm certain that she will work to make me look my best. Coming up with innovative ideas, truly an artist. My nail technicians, Linda and Young are sensitive to my every need. It may be encouraging me to try something new, getting a cup of tea and a warm pack during my pedicure! They both do an excellent job on my nails. Next, I need to tell you if you get Brazilian waxed you need to see Rebecca! Her technique is both efficient and thorough. I did travel to the city for this specialty and she is better. I love saving the parking fee and the time. They offer current products too. Lastly, I want to mention the owners Marc and Geri Melyon. They are both concerned and attentive to your experience. Always happy to see you and passionate about their profession. When I walk in its as though I'm in my home. Love it!!!

I love Daniel and the Marc Alan experience. Welcoming cup of coffee, soothing shampoo-massage and consistently great color and cuts that I never have to re-blow dry when I get home. My husband is also Daniel’s client, and always comes away with a great stylish cut.

Skyway Hair Stylists in Homewood has been a traditional barbershop for years and always a nice relaxing atmosphere.
Connie Benni April 07, 2012 at 10:23 PM
Marc Allan is a wonderful salon. Angela Smith is my hairdresser and she is the greatest with color and cuts. I have naturally curly hair, but when I leave there, every strand is smooth and straight looking - not an easy achievement. Also "Cami" is the best shampoo and scalp message tech that I have ever encountered in all my years getting my hair professionally done. You will enjoy your experience at Marc Allan!

Desiree's Coiffures on Dixie hwy in Homewood (TINA) is the best!
SHUSSBAR April 08, 2012 at 01:30 AM
Patch should have done 2 categories Women and Men. Like another contributors said above : Erin and her staff at Cutter's are the best. When I first moved here I tried a whole bunch of places here and there but soon realized CUTTER S FOR ME was the best place for a great haircut! Patrick .
