Love this place! Obviously don't get here often enough. Devon is my girl...sorry, my goddess stylist. I adore you Devon, I hope you know this! I just go in and say THIN THIS MESS OUT! The rest is her blank canvas as long as I walk out with SHORT HAIR that has been thinned out I'm sure to be amazed with a little bit of groovy and some Sass in my steps when all is said and done. Everybody here is very professional and friendly- you feel welcome as soon as you come in the door. You are always offered a cold water or coffee while you wait, which is never long, and the salon is always so clean. I highly recommend Groovy Kat's, all the stylists are pretty awesome here! More...
Great service! Kayleigh Marie is phenomenal! Amazing job coloring and styling! I highly recommend Groovy Katz, you won't regret it!
Lovely ladies! Couldnt be happier with my hair color from Devon and cut from Michelle!
My go to place in Iowa City!! I love Hayley and all the staff!!
Liesl is AMAZING!!! I can't say enough wonderful things about her. Not only is she the best hair stylist I've ever had, she also has the best personality! She remembers little details about me and my family and conversation is so easy. She delivers with an awesome color and cut everytime. I highly recommend her! Groovy Katz is an all around great experience! More...

One of the stylists, Stacy Vogelgesang, recently did my up-do for my wedding. She did a wonderful job and I got so many compliments about it. She also does a superb job at styling and coloring your hair. Groovy Katz has a fun a calming environment and I will keep coming back to the place to have Stacy do my hair! More...
I've gone here a few times for men's haircuts, and Jordan does an awesome job. It's typically around 40 dollars, so not too crazy but also not the cheapest. You'll get your money's worth. Friendly staff all around, no stuck-up people at this place! More...
Rachel is absolutely awesome! I followed her to Groovy Katz from her previous salon - and I hope that you realize how lucky you are to have her working with you! She is talented, has a gentle touch, and has a very sweet personality. More...

Callie is tremendous Jane Zwiener She is one of the best hairdressers I have ever had! Have a Great day!
Thank you Amy for my wonderful new look . You are the best!!!
I have never been able to find someone that can cut and style my curly hair just right, until now. Devon is awesome! I left today feeling like she had listened to me and confident in my hair cut and style. Thank you so much.
I love this place and my stylist, Chelsea!!! Can't wait til my next hairdo:)

Liesel did above and beyond! I'm over the moon with my hair � I love all the staff as well!
It's a great place to go, lots of talented people! I was able to donate my hair and get a beautiful cut and style from Kt! She did a wonderful job!
Lindsey is truly amazing! She knows how to work with curly hair and she is very intuitive to what her clients want.
The best salon in Iowa City :) love my stylist!!!
Liesl was absolutely amazing along wth the friendliness of the other stylists!! I got 24 inch hair extensions and they are PERFECT so thank you again for such an AMAZING job!!
For years, I got my hair cut at barber shops and Great Clips so I tried Groovy Katz. After coming home from my first haircut with Callie, my wife raved about how my hair had never looked as good as it did that day and to never to go anywhere else. Who am I to argue with my wife! Callie and Haley are the best! More...
Amy has been doing my hair for 15+ years and I have never been disappointed.
I had Hayley do my first ever pixie cut on a friend's recommendation, and couldn't be happier with the results! I was excited but a little nervous and Hayley made me feel confident and relaxed for the whole process. thanks again!!
This was an excellent salon with wonderful people! My haircut by Tarra was just what I needed, and I appreciate the care with which I was treated while there. I would highly recommend this salon to my friends and will be back soon myself! More...
I used Groovy Katz for my wedding party's hair and makeup. I have to say, the services were very professional and the ladies were very personable. We all got exactly what we wanted (my bridesmaids got very low key elements and I was a bit more flashy as the bride).They actually started on us early because we had gotten there early, and they finished in a timely manner so I could go about my wedding day schedule. Each of the ladies working on us did a wonderful job and gave us tips for how to keep our hair and makeup pristine throughout the day.The prices were reasonable: Not too expensive, not cheap either. All in all, I had a great experience here, and I'll probably do all my hair appointments here from now on. I definitely recommend them for a wedding party! More...
Just visited this salon for a major change in my hair. Cut 3-4 inches and had a lot of highlights put in. LOVE my hair! I have gotten several compliments on how natural the color looks and the cut is exactly what I wanted! A bit more than what I would usually pay, but worth it as the cut was exactly what I wanted and the color was perfect!Already have my appointment scheduled for next time! More...
Coming to Groovy Katz is always a relaxing treat. I love the Aveda scents, tea, scalp massages, and of course the great hair service. I've had several haircuts with Callie and am impressed with her every time. My wavy, thick, frizzy hair can be a challenge, but she always cuts it in a flattering style that allows me to wear it wavy or straightened. It's also not a place where you feel pressured to purchase extra products, which is appreciated. More...
I have never been to this salon but I went to get hair cut. I'm 21 and go to the university. I have very nervous about cutting my hair short but Tarra, the girl who cut my hair did a great job and the service was excellent! 40 dollars for a haircut was reasonable. I will go back for sure!!! More...

Lindsey was awesome with my 3 year old for her first ever haircut! She made the experience wonderful and comfortable for Ellye and now she wants "a lot of haircuts". I'm looking forward to my own haircut from her next week! More...
My rating is for their waxes and massages. I highly recommend both!
Perfect every time!
My favorite salon!
I have to say, I really miss Groovy Katz, and Jacque, who was my regular stylist. If I lived closer to Iowa City these days, I'd commute back just to get my hair cut. I went to Jacque years ago at Zender's and found her again when she moved to Groovy Katz. She's great at what she does: I always left the salon happy with my cut, and it always grew out nicely (a true indicator of cut quality, in my book). Years later I still think the name is a little goofy but Groovy Katz is a fantastic salon nonetheless, and by far the best I went to in the Iowa City area. More...
amazing and soo friendly!!! they make you feel comfortable!!!
Best service! I've got total confidence my stylist will give me great advice on cut/color and product! I also love the fact that if you buy 3 products you get a discount. Thanks Lindsay and the rest of the Groovy Katz crew, you're the best! More...

I've been getting my hair cut at Groovy Katz since I was a student at U of I. I live in Coralville now but I still drive across town because it is so awesome!
The stylists are all so nice and the massages are wonderful!
I recently switched to this salon and had the great luck of getting an appointment with Callie. She is fun to talk to and is always up for something new. After a few initial cuts I decided that she could be entrusted to give me a short, pixie-type haircut. She nailed it!! Past experience has shown me that not all stylists are comfortable or experienced with short styles for women. Callie is not one of them. The cherry on top is that she does neck trims for free in between my haircuts, which is super! As for the salon in general, I can say that it has a hip, young vibe to it. Everything is very clean and professional. I especially enjoy the location--right next to Java House. I often walk next door for some coffee and study time after my haircut. So convenient! Overall, don't let the unusual name scare you off. This place is great and so is Callie. More...
