what our clients say
What a Godsend the gorgeous ladies at Denise Antonacci Salon were in my time of need! I will never, NEVER go anywhere else.
This salon is heaven sent! I went in with a botched hair cut and chemical burn from another salon I went to the previous day. The stylists were so helpful and skillfully restored my bad bleach job to a nice, even ash brown. The service was impeccable, offering not only sympathy for how awful I felt having had a bad experience but an assortment of beverages and even food delivery service. If you value artistry as well as top tier customer appreciation, this is the place to go. They have definitely earned another loyal customer!
Every time I walk out of the salon, I secretly feel like paparazzi should be there waiting to take my picture, because my hair looks that great. Truly the best salon in Charlotte – and I have tried them all!
Absolute top notch salon, by far the best I have encountered in Charlotte! Professional, friendly, attentive staff, very nice and comfortable environment. I have never been better taken care of by the support staff in any other salon, period. Each visit over 3yrs has been nothing but a pleasure!
