Spa Night!!! I have been to and/or hosted at least 10 girl's spa nights over the past several years. EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS! Such a beautiful setting and the ladies who attend to us could not be more helpful. We have had some of the same ladies and some new ones but they have all been extremely helpful, polite and overly competant whether it was a pedicure, facial, massage or manicure...I've had them all and loved every minute!!! I'm frankly shocked by the one review that said they had "horrible customer service". Like I said...I've been there for that same package at least 10 times in the past several years and have never been even the slightest bit disappointed!!! And neither has anyone in my group. I would (and have) highly recommend a Spa Night for you and your girl friends!!! You will not be disappointed! The food is wonderful and the services are incredible. Can't wait for the next one : )
The Best in Dayton ! – It seems like I've tried countless salons in the greater Dayton area. None compare to Affinity for service, creativity, and expert artistry in hair care. They go beyond just hair care though. Craig always has ideas about hair color, cut and shaping, and even how to adjust my makeup to coordinate with it. I'm not one to change styles frequently, but I trust Craig. When he suggests something new, it always turns out terrific just like he promised. He is an expert artist and I recommend him highly.
Attended a spa party at Affinity & it was less than acceptable for the price we paid! 30 min services actually lasted 20 minutes and all of our pedis were HORRIBLE! Kristyn soaked our feet for about 2 min, removed old polish, cut toenails & polished! That was not the service we were told we would receive by the owner, which was the standard pedi: soak feet, remove polish, cut nails, file nails, buff nails, push back cuticles, massage feet and polish nails! She was also very unfriendly. She didn't even clean the pedi bowl out for each client! Very unsanitary. Owner wouldn't refund pedi $ and basically called us liars!?!?!? REALLY????? Horrible Customer Service!!!!!!!
Trim turned into 5 inches – I tried that salon out on a recommendation from a friend. I read reviews and was really hoping for a great experience. When I went in, I asked for a trim. I just wanted my dead ends cut off and I knew that might call for an inch or 2. I told the person doing my hair that I wore my hair both straight and curly. With this information he cut my hair with a "curly cut." When I left my hair looked horrible. There were very blunt layers and they were very short. I went home to see if the cut was even workable. I called to see what could be done and ask for a refund. I was to come back in later in the day so the owner could see what could be done. The owner then worked on my hair and told me it was the best it could be for the day. My hair had choppy, unblended layers which resembled something from the 70's. The owner was very sympathetic and understood how upset I was but the results were not much better from the first cut. With my visits to Affinity I lost about 5 inches of hair with a trim and I had to go to another salon so my hair could be better blended and looks like a passable hair cut. Needless to say I will not be back.
Awasome experience – If you want to have the best/professional hair services in Dayton, visit Affinity Salon and Day Spa which make you look and feel great.
I know Craig Burkholder – owner/Master Designer @ Affinity salon for many years, he always gets new services and new products @ his salon as they get available, also, gets all his team members trained to provide the best services in hair/skin industry. After visiting my family in Europe last summer I leaned about new hair straightening service which makes your hair straight for about 3-6 month like a reverse perm. When I got back home, I knew who to call; I did call Affinity Salon and got a FREE consultation with Craig who recommended Keratin straightening treatment for my hair. In 1 week I got my hair straightening done. I love it, my hair never looks so shiny, healthy and straight which takes less time to style it. I have a very thick/ curly hair but after Keratin treatment my hair feels weightless. Also, Craig recommended trying a new hair color which I did try and after new hair color my hair look awesome: shiny, healthy with more natural looking color then ever. I got a lot of compliments on my hair. Worth every penny
I want to thanks Craig and his assistant for making my hair so beautiful.
I am a VERY satisfied customer and would recommend Affinity to anyone.
Affinity listens and pampers – I am a VERY satisfied customer and would recommend Affinity to anyone who wants to be pampered and listened to. I have had several bad experiences at salons so I entered Affinity ready to run. However, I not only got exactly what I wanted, I felt really pampered in the process. The young lady who did my hair showed me time after time that she had heard my concerns and pointed me to products that really delivered. Thank you Affinity for a stunning head of hair that smells great and feels even better!!!
Worth Every Penny – After running errands on a busy Saturday afternoon, I landed in the chair of Affinity owner and master designer Craig Burkholder. His friendly nature immediately put me at ease and he was very intuitive when it came to figuring out what my concerns were with regard to my hair. After the initial consultation, he gave me a wonderfully relaxing scalp and neck massage. At this point, it was clear to me how dedicated he is to providing the experience of renewal to each person who comes through his door.
During the cut and style portion of the visit, he clipped with delicate precision and exacting care. He followed the shears with a fine toothed comb and gave me volume I've never been able to create myself. But it's really not about the sheers or the comb. It's about the hands of a skilled artisan. And he teaches every one of his assistants to work in the same way. I was thoroughly impressed with the level of service that I received. Craig's skill does not come cheap, and it absolutely shouldn't. It's a good value.
Spa Night is a terrific "Girls Night Out"! – I've been a customer at Affinity for over five years and can honestly say I get treated just as special now as I did the first time I walked into the salon. You get a relaxing head message with peppermint oil while discussing your last haircut (what you liked/didn't like) and what you want done today. Then after your hair is washed you get a neck massage with a warm towel. Just the perfect thing to relax you after a hard day at the office or with the kids.
I hosted a "Spa Party" this past Friday night and it was a raging success!! There were 12 of us - you arrive and change into spa robes and slippers. Then relax with your friends as you nosh on appetizers provided by Affinity and wine provided by the hostess. It was a blast and everyone had a great time. The most frequent comment I heard was - why haven't we done this before? and when are we doing this again??
If you want to be treated like the salon's best customer AND get a great haircut and/or color, come to Affinity. I'm high-maintenance and very demanding, so if they can impress me that's impressive!
For the ultimate in customer service and extraordinary salon and spa experience! – I have been a customer of Affinity Salon since 1997. What a great place to go for the best services in the area. Crystal in the Spa has magic hands and really treats you to the ultimate spa experience. I have had my hair cut, styled, and highlighted by Adrienne and Tara (both former stylists) and now the owner Craig for the last six years. Peggy, Lou Ann, Bernie, Emily Grace and others greet you with warmth when you arrive and the Aveda tea is great! What's best is that the entire salon staff works as a team. If your stylist isn't available or if you want to change to try something new, you can schedule with someone else and no one is upset. The salon has expanded significantly in the last 10 years, and has been listed in the Top 200 by "Salon Today" for the last 6 years. Affinity is an Aveda concept salon and has all the Aveda products, gift cards, and spa packages for your convenience. It is a busy place, has a fun cafe type atmosphere in the waiting area, and keeps its employees current on the latest trends and techniques in the industry. The staff is friendly and quickly gets to know you. I can highly recommend Affinity to anyone looking for the ultimate in salon and spa experience.
Wonderful experience....excellent customer service....best salon I have ever been to!! – I recently went to Affinity Salon and Day Spa and had such a wonderful experience that I decided I should share it. As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted and escorted to the waiting area where I was offered a drink and some reading material while I waited. I had just gotten my drink when I was whisked away for a head massage and a shampoo....can I tell you I was in heaven before I even got into the stylist's chair!! As soon as I was seated for my cut, my stylist interviewed me on my work and social life so that he could create the best style me. His vision was absolutely great!! During the process he made me feel like I was getting pampered....I absolutely loved it!!! After he was finished he made sure I liked what he had done (which I totally did!!) and escoreted me to the receptionist. I checked out and made sure and booked my next appointment....I can't wait to go back!!! I definitely recommed this salon to anyone because I know you will enjoy your experience as much as I did!!!
