Extremely professional,very friendly, Melissa is a color magician! I had my hair done at Hairport in port Jeff on main st. In October they totally messed it up were totally unprofessional just wanted to sell you garbage while you were there.Melissa was able to fix the disk that they did and was able to make me leave extremely happy with the results.she listens to exactly what you want and acts on it.so glad I finally found a profile place and person to do my hair.Love it Melissa. I will recommend this Salon and Melissa to everyone. Thank you so much for fixing my husband's most prized posession (my hair) He was very happy to. More...

I was recently recommended by a friend to go to Waves salon. I have had poor experiences at other salons and was a bit apprehensive as to finding the right place and hairstylist. The staff was attentive, warm and welcoming. Rachel was very receptive to my ideas and guided me in the right direction as to what would best suit me. She was very professional and went “above and beyond” to help me understand what we were doing. My hair is a beautiful warm, rich color with a depth and dimension that I was looking for. I LOVE it and I look forward to my next appointment. More...

First, they are all incredibly talented with an eye to know what styles, coloring and products to recommend that you will LOVE. When you call, the front desk knows how to professionally answer the phone and provides excellent customer service. Additionally, I must comment on how clean this salon is; from lobby area to stylist area to bathrooms! More...

I've been coming to this location for a while- Danielle does awesome updos! My only gripe is that the curls are gone in a few hours for me. Not sure if it's my hair or the product/too much flat iron on my part. Either way, it still looked beautiful, all night, for the wedding I attended. It was $80 for the updo- I had a braid on each side pulled back in a half pony tail & curls. It looked so pretty (esp with the curls!) I would recommend & return. More...

This salon deserves 5 stars. The women here are all so friendly and sweet. I have been going there for some time now and Sarina is fantastic she always does a great job! I’ll show her a hairstyle that I am interested in doing and she will tell me if it will work on my hair or not and if not she tells me that she can modify it so it would look almost the same. Sarina also does my highlights they also come out great!
My experience here is definitely a great one!!

Melanie at Commack, was wonderful, friendly, kind and extremely helpful with her ideas. I had made my appointment for a blow out and makeup application for my nieces Sweet Sixteen, which was so important for me because of how special this occasion was. I had never been to Catus before, but as soon as I can I will be making a new appointment with Melanie. I am very very excited to become a regular at Catus in Commack. More...

10 April 2017

Excellent customer service from the moment I called in to schedule my appointment. I requested Melissa based on a review and I must say every word said of her was true. Melissa is a total professional and artist! I walked in with a challenge and she did not shy away. I went in to have a corrective color and balayage treatment after a failed attempt at a different salon. Melissa was upfront about what the process would be, the cost and end result based on her expertise. I was constantly asked if I was ok, if I needed anything and considering I was there for almost 3 ½ hours it felt like a short stay. I highly recommend Melissa as she knows her stuff!  More...

Melissa did an amazing job on my hair, everyone there was very professional. I got a balayage and a cut. I explained to her the look I was going for and she did exactly what I asked for. I have very dark hair so when I go to most places I get a tint of orange. I had no orange in my hair!! very very happy with my new color and cut. I would definitely go back to her. More...

Fran Nordstrom is a classy lady, who delivers expert cut, color, style,blow out, up-do;you name it, she will make it happen and make you feel beautiful! I've seen the same work out of her colleagues! The Waves salon is top notch, with friendly staff, immaculate work stations, and a warm environment. The prices are reasonable and affordable and I would not go anywhere else! I am picky and have found my hair girl for life! I was not compensated or persuaded to give such a fab review, the establishment and staff deserve it! More...

I went in for haircut, color and blowout. Rachel did it all and it looks terrific. The hair color and cut were exactly what I was looking for. Even the young lady who did the shampoo/conditioner did a great job and massaged my scalp gently as she cleaned. Great experience! I will be back. More...

It's so hard to find someone that is good at cutting hair. I have tried so many hairstylists and salon all over Long Island, but when I came to Cactus salon in Dix Hills and had my hair cut by Kim, I was beyond happy. For the first time I finally had someone do exactly what I wanted and pictured in my mind. The layers were perfect. Kim was a delight to speak with during the whole process. She is very talented and I highly recommend for cuts. As for the rest of the staff at Cactus, my goes off to all of them. They are very, very, kind and very much concerned about you being happy and treated well as a customer. I love going here and I look forward to my next cut. :) More...

Didn't know they had a nail salon inside. Had a salon pedi and shellac manicure. I went to Donna and she did an outstanding job. My nail lady sold her place a few months ago and I have been searching since then for a professional person. Donna is my new main "nail lady". You won't be sorry! More...

I have been going to Cactus for my waxing needs for 3 or 4 years now. I always, always, always request Judy. She is simply THE BEST at what she does! My eyebrows always look amazing after I visit her. I wouldn't even risk going to any other salon. I know Judy does the best job! Not only is she good at what she does, but she is the sweetest girl. Very warm and friendly! I definitely would recommend her to anyone for anything. More...

I called the salon in a panic after I received a very bad perm elsewhere. I was connected with Fran, who calmed me down as well as my hair! She showed me ways to work with my hair "as is" while using special products to repair and style it. She has worked wonders with my color and hairstyling and is a warm, lovely, friendly person as well as an experienced professional hairstylist who is ready to deal cheerfully with just about anything!  Thank you, Fran and Cactus Salon!  Jan More...
