Extension Reviews

“What a great salon. I had my hair colored and extensions applied and couldn’t be more happy with the results. Jimmy and Claudine are true professionals and very friendly. They took the time that was needed to get my hair color just right and a perfect match to my extensions.
When they were done, I looked like a totally different person. My hair is now absolutely fabulous and I LOVE it!”

“I have never had hair extension before and was extremely nervous. Went in for my consultation and was made to feel very welcome. Noted another person getting extensions and that was very promising that this shop was very experienced. The staff was very helpful and informative. Prices are very fair for the market. So far, in my opinion if you are looking for extensions…this is the place to go!”

“One of my friends refered me to Philip James Salon for extensions and I am certainly glad she did because this place is great. Jimmy and Claudine did my extensions and I had long luxurious locks in no time! =) The atmosphere was very laid back and they worked together to ensure the best outcome for me and my hair! I would recommend this salon to anyone who is looking into getting extensions.”

“Philip James is awesome! I went to Philip James for extensions and eventually a hair cut and the extensions were PERFECT. Jimmy is extremely meticulous about every step of the process. Very consultative and friendly–completely unpretentious (as with everyone who works there). I drove from the far NW suburbs to come here and it was completely worth it.”

My new hair extensions. Thank you for bumping my self image/self confidence up a couple of notches . . . you have made a big difference in my everyday life and I just want to thank you for that!

“This place is great. I am not the sort of girl who has a regular stylist but after going here today, I might. They did extensions to correct hair that was way to short on one side. They actually did it the day of my consult. When I got home my fiance couldn’t tell which hair was mine and which was extensions. I thought that it was very reasonably priced as well. From my brief time here today, I would say the rave reviews are well deserved.”

“I purchased hair extensions that another stylist promised to put in and then found out that she could not do it. The stylists at PJ were very accommodating. Not only did they put them in but were able to correct the color of these extensions that were not close to what I wanted. They made it work! And I had 3 people working on this “project” for me. Seemed very eager to please me and I was! I am so glad I found them and really felt like I was in good hands. I am done with big “chain” salons who treat you like just another head as opposed to these great stylists who really care about their work and will do what it takes to get it right.
Thanks!”

“I had drove a little over 2 hours to Philip James for a consultation for fusion extensions and when I got there I realized I should have my hair dyed because I wasn’t satisified with my current color. So I left the salon with a beautiful color, went back to get the extensions, which were a very reasonable price, and they look gorgeous! I absolutely love my extensions and my hair color, not to mention the salon has a very down to earth atmosphere, and everyone treats you so nicely. You definetly get the top-grade treatment. THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!”
