So I posted this for a friend when she started here, but I wanted to share my experience at this salon. Van does a... great job! My issue isn’t with her, but with the salon owner. I sat in the salon for over 5 hours this day. The reason? Because Van was being forced to run around and assist the owner while he was tending to clients. The weirdest thing I have see in a salon is here. He had his clients holding the foils for him to put in their hair. I don’t know about everyone else, but I like to relax when I’m paying someone a couple hundred dollars to do my hair. I thought that was tacky. But what happened was that I guess he thought I was just a practice model for Van so I didn’t matter when I’m fact I was a paying customer. Like $200 paying customer and sat there patiently because I love Van, and I didn’t want to complain. Go somewhere like Ginger Bay where you don’t sit for hours or hold your foils. Tacky run business.Thank god Van quit this place. Maybe it has changed since that post? I just felt I should share.Last week was my first time at Mitchell James Salon, and I will be going back. The stylist on staff were friendly, attentive and up to date with the current trends and styles. Van gave me wonderful service. She was professional, and gave me great advice on which colors would look best on me. She also did an amazing job cutting my hair. I am very picky about my hair, and I was not disappointed! I will be going back and recommending Van to all of my friends.read more

Mitchell James Salon is wonderful. I love the peaceful atmosphere that you don't find in other salons. They offer a... great selection of really fine hair products. James is an expert at knowing what looks good on you (and what doesn't) and always cuts hair for the easiest wash and wear styling. As an extra, they are located in a very cool part of Saint Louis. Many thanks for the great job everyone!!read more

"Come for the Haircut, stay for the Conversations"The owner, James is a one of a kind hairstylist that puts the likes... of Edward Scissorhands to bed. James is a great listener and understands what the customer is looking for, while not afraid to give suggestions.I once entrusted a friend to cut my hair and it turned into a royal snafu. Enter James, who salvaged the disaster and gave me a great razor cut. I have since pledged to forever entrust James with my hair follicles until they grow no more…He’s one of the funniest people you will ever meet as I look forward to going in for a haircut every time. James isn’t superficial, he genuinely cares about the client and getting to know them on a personal level.*Update* I have recommended James to more than a handful of people (men & women) and they have given me glowing reviews about their experiences. When it comes to hair, it really doesn’t get better, guys & gals.read more

I have been going to James for several years now and am constantly impressed by his artistry with color. I LOVE IT... !!!!! and I always receive many compliments on my current style as well. UPDATE! James convinced me to embrace my natural curls when I was no longer going to the office, and I now absolutely love my wash and wear style! As usual my cut and his expert color work get many compliments, I can’t imagine anyone else doing my hair!read more

I have to say the most professional & quality experience I have ever had at a hair salon. Hannah Hesse was my stylist,... She immediately made me feel at home & kept the visit fun & relaxing. I have long but tight curls & am always worried when getting a cut. Hannah is very talented and reliable. I wont be going to anyone else for my hair cuts.read more

I'm so happy to have found James! He listens to your ideas of what you want, with focus and patience. As I have wanted... my natural salt and pepper color to come forth, he has carefully planned the treatment to get me there. He guarantees his work, even giving free corrections within a week of your last visit. It has taken a few visits and I now I have the slate, steel, and ore ash low-lights, which blend nicely with my outgrowth. It's always fun to watch James use his thinking cap to come up with the right mix for your needs. Thank you James, for caring about every client that walks into your salon!!! 🙂read more

This is one of the best hair salons I have been to! Highly recommend to anyone! James is extremely talented at what he... does. I bring in pictures of what I like and he creates a look that looks amazing on me. On top of coloring and cutting my hair, James is always teaching me different techniques to style my hair and recommends products to help my hair stay healthy. This salon is also very accommodating to their costumers - they stayed late to fit me in for a color and cut before I went out of town. If you’re looking for a place to get your hair done, go here!read more

I chose this salon randomly after moving from Medford Oregon. I cannot speak highly enough of the owner who cut and... colored my hair.He is truly a master colorist as well as stylist, and gave me the best color and cut I have had in YEARS! His consultation was top notch as well, showing patience and genuine interest until he felt certain he knew what I was requesting.He took time to educate me every step of the way, on how to maximize the curl in my hair and to decrease the frizz.The entire experience was a pleasure and I will be repeat client who gladly would recommend this salon to anyone wanting a high level of skill and artistry in their stylist.read more

I recently went here for a cut and color with Carmela. I have never been happier with my hair. She gave me exactly... what I wanted, both in cut and color. My hair looks the healthiest it's looked in years.Moreover, the salon was exceptionally clean and the staff (especially my stylist Carmela) were friendly and professional. I can not imagine getting my hair done anywhere else. Highly recommend if you are looking for a new place to get a new style!read more

I was referred to, Mitchell James Salon, by a family member that sees James. Finally after looking for a new salon... after 5 years I found my place! James is so sweet and great in dealing with indecisive people like me. 🙂 The salon is always clean and there is always plenty of parking around the plaza he is in, so no worries about finding parking. I’m so glad I finally found a place that does an amazing job that also includes a friendly staff. I’ve never received so many compliments on my hair after getting it done and had it look so beautiful even if I don’t style it. I definitely recommend, Mitchell James Salon.read more

I have been seeing Elvira for the past year or so, and her work is exceptional. I can’t speak on the other stylists... behalf however the environment is great, a cute salon. They take care of you here, and I felt safe pandemic wise. Everyone had a mask on, even in duration of the bleaching/washing. Highly recommend Elvira for balayages and highlights.read more

Would definitely recommend! After my initial haircut I wasn’t totally happy-just wanted a bit more layers. They fit me... in really quickly, were so kind and professional, and at no charge added more layers. James can really get a good read on what style I was wanting and how to accomplish it. Will definitely go back!read more

James does a wonderful job. He always takes time to figure out what I want, and I always leave with a smile on my face.... He did a phenomenal job with my perm/body wave! He knew exactly how to blend the different size rods to make it look natural. I get so many compliments and couldn’t be happier with the cut/style.I also got color by him and it is the best color I have gotten in St. Louis.He brought out the natural tones and blended perfectly so that it would grow out well & be low maintenance.I can't wait to see what we do next - I am so happy I found my forever stylist in St. Louis.read more
