Principles of Education

In order to deliver the best service to guests, I start by listening with an open mind and giving honest answers. I have over seventeen years of industry experience and when I moved to Mango, I wanted to be a part of the best salon in Richmond. Mango's team approach and the wide variety of guests I see, keep things collaborative and fresh each day. I love cuts and color and exploring new techniques for both. Aveda has so much to offer with color. I want to share these possibilities with guests.

 

BIT ABOUT ME  On nice days, I drive my Vespa to work or spend time working in my yard. I feel lucky to live in Richmond and enjoy being close to the James River. Yoga and travel during time off keep me centered.

Great! Alison was so gracious and kind with the adjustment. She listens and made it easy. The manager (Kristen, Krista-apologies I'm not 100% sure of her name) was also super sweet in making sure everything was ok. Like I said to Alison, chemistry is tricky and I understand color doesn't always perfectly process. Thank you for seeing it through until just right!

Alison is wonderful and makes my experience at Mango unmatchable. I ask for her opinion on what I should try next with my hair because her knowledge is amazing. I look forward to my hair appointments more than anything else - not only for the relaxation and spa-like experience, but also because it's enjoyable to spend the hours it takes to get your hair done in a chair with someone like her. She's awesome.

The rating system isn't working but we give booking and consult and service with Alison both 5 stars. Booking was efficient, friendly and got us in soon as possible. Alison really is a pro. She helped with my daughter's color correction which was very challenging. Her instincts and experience led to a better than anticipated outcome. It lifted my daughter's spirits to look and feel better. That's invaluable. And so appreciated. Alison went above and beyond to fit her into her schedule. And, she clearly cares. We are so pleased!

Anita

January 06,2017
Great haircut! Alison always spends time with me before cutting my hair to talk about what's working/what changes I want. Very little to no wait.

Dana

November 03,2016
I really love Mango. While Juliet is out on maternity leave I had color and cut by a different stylist. She did a great job, she modified the color some. It is a little bit more light strawberry blonde than what I would have preferred, I didn't really notice it until this morning.

Melissa

The booking experience was extremely easy. Laura at Guest Services reached out to me within 24 hrs of my request. She asked clarifying questions to ensure I was placed with the right stylist and booked my appointment right away. Thanks Laura! I am a new guest and was treated extremely well the minute I walked in the door. Jean, at the front desk, greeted me right away and gave me a tour of the salon. She was very helpful during check out as well when I booked my next appt. In the end, she held the door as I walked out and wished me well. Small gesture but much appreciated. Thanks for all your help Jean. I saw Allison and she was fantastic! She spent time talking to me about my hair, previous color, length, etc. Alison took her time with my highlights to ensure the contrast would be perfect. I left the salon completely in love with the highlights and cut. I was in and out in two hours flat but never felt rushed. The shampoo was awesome too....scalp massage and hand massage. I can't wait for my next appointment. Thanks so much Alison!

Booking appointments is always easy - phones are answered promptly, receptionists are efficient and friendly. Ditto checking in at the salon on the day of appointments - even if there are a few people in line, receptionists always greet and acknowledge your presence. My in-chair experiences have always been positive and relaxing.
