Testimonials

Laura is fantastic! After living in Philadelphia for 7 years, I was used to “big city” high end salons. Needless to say, I was a little nervous moving back to Raleigh when it came to my hair. However, I was lucky enough to find Prickly Pear Salon- and after meeting Laura, all my concerns quickly vanished. It’s tough enough to find a stylist with true talent, but to find one with such a great personality and easy conversation is just exceptional. Laura is an absolute master with color and always delivers on top notch cuts. I’ve been going to Prickly Pear Salon for almost a year now and have always left the chair looking and feeling amazing! Do yourself a favor and check out Prickly Pear Salon- you won’t be disappointed!!

Every time I go to Laura I feel right at home. She does a beautiful job cutting my thick, somewhat coarse and wavy hair and cutting and coloring my friend’s VERY thick curly hair. Really understands what waves and curls need. I always get lots of compliments on my hair for weeks after I see her :)

Laura did a wonderful job on my hair. I basically went in with a general idea on what I wanted done and let her do her thing. In the end, I walked out with an amazing new cut that I loved. She is the best at color as well so I will be back to get more color done to my hair. I had her do galaxy color (purple, blue, magenta, teal) in my hair last time and it turned out great! I’ve gotten so many compliments on my hair each time I’ve gone to her. Very clean and well designed salon. Great location with plenty of parking available. Highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who asks for my opinion on stylists and salons.

Laura is amazing. She gets to know you and this makes for the perfect cut and color for each of her clients. I truly enjoy my time with her and at the end of my visit I look great. She is a professional and friendly young woman. Glad my neighbor recommened her to me. I also really appreciate that I can make my appointments online.

Laura is an outstanding and professional hair stylist. Not only is she extremely skilled at her craft but also makes the experience enjoyable and pleasant. Her salon space is clean and inviting, and her demeanor is educational but also relaxing. Get your hair done exactly how you want and have a really great conversation at the same time. Not only is Laura knowledgeable about hair coloring techniques but also about what cut and style works for the type of hair you have. No stylist has been able to make me feel better about my thin and fine hair until I saw Laura. I found my forever stylist here in Raleigh and I’m so glad!

We love Laura! She is talented and friendly and very knowledgeable. We are always happy with the results whether its a cut or new color or something a little outrageous that we’ve decided to try. Laura always respects our vision but is able to add her own artistry to the mix without intruding. Would highly recommend!
