Scam Salon – Read all the bad reviews. Sounds like a scam salon.
This is not a client writing this review but a disgruntled former employee of both G. Michael Salon and WHITE The Art of Hair. We are a leading Indianapolis salon receiving hundreds of positive reviews over 6 years!
Our stylists and employees are not rude in fact they are extremely pleasant and there certainly no lawsuits. We just do great hair with the finest products at a great price! Elle Magazine has selected us as a Top 100 Salon in America ( and the only salon selected in the state of Indiana!) for the past 3 years in a row! Scam Salon? Really??
Best Salon in Indy – Fantastic from start to finish! Danita did a quick assessment of my hair and described, step-by-step, what she had in mind. I gave her free reign to cut my hair as she pleased. She kept with a more conservative cut, only trimming a few inches, and fixing my layers, but it made a huge difference! Also, my color was to die for!
They were very friendly and professional. I was constantly offered something to drink or a magazine to read.
While I was there I saw several men get their haircut and most seemed like regulars... which I'm inferring means that they love getting their hair cut there as well.
With out a doubt, best Salon in town. Run, don't walk to this place!!
Indy's #1 Salon – Over The Moon.........
I must let my secret out of the bag. I am originally from Los Angeles Ca. and I have been to a variety of different salons. White The Art of Hair, is the only place to go for hair. Danita White is an artist who takes her profession very seriously, (while having fun doing it). She is an expert colorist who uses top salon products while executing her highly skilled techniques. My very first experience with her was when she corrected a color mishap made by another stylist/salon here in Indy. She saved me and gave me a spectacular result.
Her styling/cutting techniques could easily be competitive against any top stylist in the country. After she cuts my hair she then texturizes it into a symphony of perfect, (so perfect I don't even have to wash it in the morning if I don't have time - hello!!!!). If you can't get an appointment with Danita she has an incredible staff who are equally as professional and skilled. I know they also offer top quality extension services, (I have not branched into that hair arena, but I have witnessed it being preformed). Also, the Kerastase product line that she uses on your hair will have you at hello! You can purchase them there as well, and thank goodness. I always make sure I have my Kerastase Slim which is a key product in the humid weather.
Beyond anything hair, (and all the other services and products the salon offers), the salon itself is a very relaxing environment. I am greeted each visit and offered a variety of beverages. I always look forward to going through the magazines, and catching up on some "me" time, (corny but true). There is also an area with a tall table and comfy chairs so customers can get work do on their laptops.
If you are looking for a new stylist, (which is often harder to find than a new gynecologist), or wanting something new with your color, White The Art of Hair is the only place to go. You won't be disappointed.
Caution.... – I started going to Lush back in 2006 when there was a totally different panel of stylists. I was excited about having an appointment with Danita, and would have loved her to cut my hair, but as soon as I showed up for my appointment and sat down, she asked me what I wanted and when I told her, she pawned me off onto another stylist because she said she was "better" at the haircut that I requested. I felt uncomfortable in the salon from the beginning, the atmosphere was not friendly. Fast forward a couple of visits, I thought I was paying way too much for haircolor when it wouldn't last more than a couple of weeks before beginning to fade (and after purchasing their overpriced hair products to supposedly help extend the hair color). Then one of my favorite stylists decided to leave, followed by many other stylists at this establishment. Then I heard the horror stories of how the owner treated the stylists that needed to leave, so I decided to leave as well. I'm sure they do a great job for the people who get extensions and the other higher-priced services, but for hair color and cuts there are MUCH better establishments in Indianapolis and surroundings areas that won't make you feel uncomfortable or treat their stylists unethically. Wondering why the name changed from LUSH to WHITE...reputation issues perhaps?
Danita was not informed at the time of booking an appointment that the client had "Green Highlights" and wanted those taken out and "pink/maroon Highlights" colors put in. Danita doesn't do that type of
color she called a stylist who specializes in that type of color service to come in so that we could accommodate her.
The client told us that she had just moved here from out of state and had never been to our salon. Her hair was very dry and we recommended Kerastase products to purchase which she voluntarily did.
We do everything we can to make sure a service and clients will be happy which includes calling in people who "specialize" in avante garde colors if necessary.
The name change was due to a trademark issue with LUSH Fresh Handmade Natural Cosmetics.
It's not the extensions, IT'S THE EXTENSIONIST! – I have been to Paris, Italy, London, and a few other European countries; I also have been wearing extensions from around the world for 4 years. Until this year, while in the Colts owner Jim Esays suite at the new stadium; I could always tell when another woman was wearing extensions!
I saw this blond model being photographed for a national magazine and I thought to myself "damn her for that gorgeous hair, and here I am paying $1,500 for mine."
Later that evening I saw her again, and this time I had to ask "What do you do to your hair?" She replied "Honey, I have Hair extensions." I gasped and out of shock and disbelief!!!
I could NOT tell even while touching her hair! Like a crazy woman, I flipped my hair back and showed her my "Finger rows" as we laughed through it. She was Miss Indiana USA and gave me a card for her stylist Danita White.
The next day, at the office I goggled "Miss Indiana USA" and much to my surprise on her website was a link to White The Art of Hair, and on top of that she was a client!
So I google searched Danita and matter of fact you can google almost anything to do with salon, beauty, hair extensions, etc. And Danita is there!!!!
So I set up my consultation and went, 8 hours later I was a flawless, beautiful, long, thick haired, very content woman! The magic I had encountered that day, transformed not only my hair, but in many ways my life. Nobody I meet knows I have hair extensions, except me....
There is one thing I want to say to ANYONE thinking of or is already doing extensions; Danita is like a Leonardo Da Vinci of color and extensions! Perfection is priceless!
p.s. she wont tell you but she does all the top movers and shakers hair in this town so keep your eyes peeled for a celebrity sightings while at the salon.
Awesome service! – I checked out White Salon after a couple of friends recommended it, and am very glad I did. Danita is just amazing with colors, and although I just went in for a single process, she actually threw in a few highlights on the top of the head where my highlights had grown out cause it had been 3 months since I got them done. And all this at no extra cost! The staff is not only very knowledgeable, but they take their time with you, and really make you feel special in the process :) Would totally recommend them if anyone's looking to get highlights or any sort of color correction done! I am going back again in 4 weeks :)
3 hair stylists including herself, no wonder salon is empty – Danita is mean, and obviously by reading her reviews, the real clients have it right, this salon should be avoided at all cost. She charged us $200 for a postponement of our appt even though I had a car accident the night before and told her that on the message I left 7:00 that morning. She may get our $200 but we will NEVER use WHITE again and will pass the word so no one EVER makes the same mistake!!! She was combative, confrontational, unprofessional, didn't give a darn that we had been in an accident, didn't care that we had planned to reschedule. All she wanted was her $200 cancellation fee!! How low can you go? Danita and her salon obviously can crawl at the bottom of the barrel and be very comfortable! Enjoy your $200 Danita you are a bad business person, shame on you
Nicely asked her to provide a police report, pictures, anything confirming her auto accident and we would have been happy to waive her appointment fee and she couldn?t. Needless to say this isn?t the first time this client has called at the last minute with a complicated story as to why she shouldn't be treated like everyone else. Simply missed her appointment and didn?t respect the 24 hour cancellation policy she agreed to; feels she is more important that the stylist working to pay her bills for the day. Sadly, all salons have to deal with these types every so often.
Great Highlights Great Haircut! – I have seen Lauren Melvin for the last 4 years both here in Indy and at Michael Canele Salon in Beverly Hills and totally get why she wins awards for her work - the compliments I receive on my color and my cut are always so nice to hear - she knows what she is doing, loves what she does, cares about me and how I feel about the outcome and always delivers. I would be afraid to leave her and try someone new - I rely on her so much for consistently meeting my expectations. I wouldn't dream of leaving her for a different stylist. Plus she's just a warm, caring, vivacious, funny person who makes my experience positive every time. I saw the review from the person who did not have a good experience and it's too bad - this way of expressing dissatisfaction is unfortunate in that it in no way reflects how much Lauren really does care. She rocks. Love her. Wouldn't trust my hair to anyone else.
White The Art of Hair Yes, yes, yes, YESSSS! – As a recent transplant to Indy I was in need of somewhere to get my hair permanently straightened - it was time to touch up the Japanese hair straightening done to my unruly mess and I could not find hardly anywhere to do it. The few salons I talked to were rude or snooty but the staff at White the art of hair were very friendly on the phone. I spent about four hours with Lauren today and left with completely perfect straight hair. I can honestly say it was the best job ANYONE has ever done using the Japanese straightening technique on my hair. Lauren was lovely, funny, and friendly and the staff was extremely nice. Psst-its also the place where all the colts players wives and cheerleaders have their hair done! In six months when it's time for more touchups you can bet I will go nowhere else but here. Highly recommend!
“First time at this salon- A++ experience” – Over the years, I've had a lot of good cuts-and a lot of bad ones. This time, I really did my homework before stepping into White The Art of Hair salon. My research really paid off! Danita was very attentive to my needs and gave me useful feedback and suggestions. I walked in with dead ends and "horse hair syndrome" and left with silky-soft, touchable tresses. The cut was precise and flattering- She is an expert with her scissors! I made an appointment to go back for highlights and maybe even extensions. Can't wait! :)
