What our clients have to say
“I’ve been a client of Caralyn’s since 2011 and I am so happy I chose this salon. Every time I go there the staff is friendly, professional and current with the local trends and products. Karen has cut, styled and coloured my hair since I first started coming to Caralyn’s. Her attention to detail in working with me to find a style that works for me has been great. She has also recommended hair care products for my hair type. My hair has never looked better. Thanks again for all your help!”

“I’ve been going to see the staff at Caralyn’s for about five years. My wife and I have used their services for hair cutting and styling, and for scalp treatments. One thing I really appreciate is that it’s fast and easy to get an appointment on my timetable, which is important for a busy person like me. At the same time, the service is very good. They don’t cut corners or rush through my appointment. And I like that they do more than just great hairstyling. They truly are scalp experts and can help you if you’re having a problem with your scalp. And if I’m going to an event and I want something different, maybe a more ‘stylized’ look, they are happy to do that for me, too. The staff is fun and there are lots of nice young people. They make you feel special like you’re part of the family —not a number. They also do a lot to support our community and I personally feel it’s important to support businesses that do that. At the end of the day, I have real peace of mind when I go to Caralyn’s because I know they will take good care of me. And I always leave there feeling great!”
