"My loyalty to ROY is undeniable. First, and foremost, let me be very clear. I have high expectations about my hair color. Whether I am going for highlights, or what I refer to as my "Jennifer Aniston" blonde stage...
or a fun, shorter hair style...
or back to my brunette roots,
they do a great job at making my hair look healthy and fabulous.
ROY is the epitome of VIP treatment without the Pretentious BS. How? Whether you are a first time customer, or a loyal client, such as myself. A stylist will sit down with you for a personal consultation. What is more, they write down the things that are important to you. If you need them to, they also offer guidance in hair color, corrective color, and hairstyles that will work best for you. As if that were not enough, in the winter or colder months, they ask to take your coat...Any season they offer you a drink: coffee, wine, water? What's even more fabulous, you do not have to be dressed to the nines to get this type of treatment at ROY.
I simply love going to ROY and I am banking on the fact that you will too, if you give them a try! If you decide to go, please be sure to say that you heard about them from
I have been going to Reflections of You Salon and Spa for about nine months now, and I love it!!! I moved to the area and I was very hesitant to try a new salon. The staff of ROY Salon made me feel very welcome and the salon is EXTREMELY clean, which is sometimes hard to find. They offer me a drink and some kind of dessert every time I go. I never feel out of place there! The environment is very relaxing and welcoming. Their shampoo chairs are amazing. They recline and massage!!!
I see a variety of stylists there, because I like the different points of views from different stylists. All of the people that have cut and colored my hair have done an amazing job, and for that I am very, very happy!!!
I also know that the stylists go to several styling and trend classes throughout the year, which is awesome. They are on top of the trends!!! Yaya!!! I love Reflections of You Salon and Spa.
I was long overdue for a haircut and desperate for a qualified stylist who actually understands what I want. I was able to secure an appointment with Heather as she was kind enough to squeeze me in at the end of her day. She was very gracious and surprisingly energetic for someone who had been on her feet all day. She listened carefully to what I wanted and then made a few suggestions based on the condition of my hair. The final result was better than I had hoped for and a wonderful experience all around. Everyone I had contact with was professional and personable. The whole time I was there I had no doubt that my satisfaction was their top priority and sadly these days that isn't common. I don't get my hair cut often enough but the next time I'm ready it will be with Heather. Thanks to all the staff that helped to make my visit so enjoyable.
When I want the best, I go to the best. The ambiance and service at Reflections Fairfax is top notch. It's more than a hairdo... it's an experience. From the massaging at the sink to the brushing of my hair, I leave loving the new reflections of me!
I have followed Heather and her team to ROY and Heather (specifically) for a number of years. She has truly mastered the art of color that is natural and flattering to my skin tone, time of year and texture of my hair. I am rarely concerned about how it will turn out and trust her judgment about what will work for "me". I am not one who is prone to make extreme changes and she is sensitive to that, often making recommendations for subtle shifts that help me keep my hair in the most healthy condition and in a style that works for my personality and career. She is also a wonderful teacher; continuously educating her clients on new products and approaches that surface in the industry that we can use ourselves.
Prior to finding Heather and Reflections of You Fairfax, I usually felt quite a bit of trepidation before any hair appointment. In the past, I was never certain that my needs were of importance to the person wielding the scissors behind my head. I heard rumors about stylists who were good at their jobs and actually listened to their customers, but did not believe them to be true. My visits to Reflections of You Fairfax have really opened my eyes to how pleasant the salon experience can be. I am never worried when I take a seat in Heather's chair as I am sure that all of my questions and concerns will be professionally addressed. Every member of the staff is courteous and kind, the environment is relaxing, and the products used are excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend the salon to a friend.
Until I found Heather at Reflections of You Fairfax, I went to a different salon every time I needed a hair cut or color. I could never find anyone that could understand what I wanted.......it was exhausting. When I met Heather and her staff, I could tell that I was going to have a different experience. They immediately made me feel welcome and at home. Heather actually explained to me some issues with my hair and gave me suggestions of possibilities to consider. I have never been more satisfied because for the first time, my hair is manageable and easy to style. That is exactly what I have been looking for!
Thanks Heather Norma Dunwoody
I have been with Heather since before ROY. Her demeanor is professional and she is one of the best hairdressers I have been to. Prior to Heather I had moved from one salon to another every few years. In addition to being professional, she is also lighthearted and fun. Her salon is very comfortable, attractive and relaxing and the people who work with her are top quality.
I'm a new customer and I'm thrilled to have been referred to ROY, especially, Heather. She has extensive knowledge on all hair types. I am so pleased with my new hairstyle. She is customer sensitive, a good listener, provides constructive suggestions, and knows what she's doing! I wish you continued great success. Heather you're the best!
Katelynn Warren - Manager & Hairstylist
Katelynn from the Fair Lakes location cuts my hair and I'm absolutely thrilled with my experience. I'm the type of guy that typically settles for a buzz cut from my girlfriend, but finally taking the time to walk into a salon and have someone do it professionally is the ideal situation now. After getting my first hair cut from her, I plan to go back every month from now on. Not only did she give me some great pointers on how to style it (which I have NO clue where to start!) but the experience you get from the moment you walk in the salon is hands down the best. As a small business owner I know how important it is to be A) GREAT at what you do B) and be GREAT at all the small stuff. This includes the first contact at the front desk until the time you walk out the door. Nothing beats having a great haircut AND great experience. Thanks Katelynn!
Anita Ramos-Zaatar - Hairstylist & Esthetician
Dear Anita, Thanks a lot for the up-do you performed on my hair on July 30th. Many people have said they loved it. I appreciate the artistic talent you demonstrated and the work you put in. I felt confident during the ceremony, and party as well.
Many Thanks, Ngocdiep T.
The best cut, style & color I have ever had for my very curly hair. Anita shaped my hair beautifully to frame my face, she left some length, and cut my hair in a way that made it very manageable. Also, the color was the most flattering I've ever had. Anita didn't try to persuade me to have my hair combed out in a way that would straighten it. I left with my curls looking shiny & beautiful. Also the massaging chairs you sit in when you are having your hair washed are incredibly relaxing. The salon is very low-key & professional.
I want to commend Anita Zaatar on the wonderful person she is. My sister had a debilitating stroke and she was so kind and patient with her. She did an excellent job on her hair and made her feel so good about herself, that my sister applied makeup with her one good hand. You are very fortunate to have Anita on staff.
Before discovering Anita, I couldn't find anyone who could get my hair color and style right. My hair is naturally curly & is turning a drab shade of gray. Anita immediately got my hair color right. Its now a shade that brightens up my face, and the cut is great & easy to maintain between visits.
Anita was giving free cuts at Celebrate Fairfax. How lucky I was! She's talented with color and style and I always enjoy talking with her. I have spent large portions of my life with bad haircuts but she made my day! I've been with her now for many years and have never had a bad cut. GO!
Whether it is for a cut, color or facial, the shop appears to be on the cutting edge of technology, new products and styles. Look at the wall of honor - showing all of the awards and citations in fashion and hair magazines!! Even if my hair is shoulder or below the ear in length, if I choose to change my style - it is done with interest and super consultation and done beautifully.
I have sent countless friends and neighbors to the shop to get "treated" and each one has enjoyed the experience and become permanent clients. I am a ROY fan. Sincerely, DJ Garrett
Sara Schantz - Hairstylist
I absolutely love Sara!!! She does an awesome job and everybody there is so nice!!!
I am very happy with my hair- I got a shorter cut done by Sara a few days ago. First impressions are everything: She looked and acted professionally and had a really pretty hair style *that I now want!* She was pleasant and did a wonderful job...the real test was waking up the next day and being able to do it myself. My hair has more volume and body than it has had in a while. I often drive right by this salon, so I am glad I gave them a shot. Will definitely go back for her to do my color and will report here!
After I spent quite some time browsing the web and reading reviews about the salons in the area, i decided to try ROY. I had thick heavy long hair for 3 years now, and I was a little afraid to trust someone in doing a good job cutting it to a medium length while giving it a nice shape. I'm the mom of a 10-months-old, and I'm starting nursing school next week, so I wanted something age(27) and school-appropriate, easy to manage, feminine, neat, but a little playful. I walked in to ROY without having an appointment. Lucky me, the place was quiet(Wednesday around noon), and the receptionist assigned me to Sara. After introducing ourselves, she asked about the ways I usually treat/style my hair, and to try to describe in three words what I'd like my new hair to be. So, I told her the above mentioned attributes and it seemed that she got a grip of what I wanted. After a pretty good hair wash/massage(by Lale who offered to trim my eyebrows, but understood that that was not the purpose of my visit, so she didn't push it), Sara started to cut my hair. I appreciated it that she took her time and always made sure that i was ok with what she was doing next and that I liked what she did so far. The whole experience from walking in to walking out probably took about 1.5-2 hours, but it definitely worth it, 'cause I got a great hair cut!!!! Also, I must mention that she had a professional attitude and she was gentle with my hair(not like the lady who pulled out half of may hair the last time I got a hair cut ). She did tell me about the products that would benefit my hair, but she was not pushy in any way. While getting ready to leave, I took a peak into the mirror again, and who I'm guessing is the owner or manager of the place, kindly asked me if everything was ok with my haircut. I said yes, i just needed to get used to it a bit (I got bangs- hadn't have them since high school). One more thing, I almost forgot, the price. The whole thing cost me 45 dollars - I say this is a pretty neat price for a wash, cut, dry, and style. I was/am extremely satisfied. I love my new look, and guess what? my husband likes it too. Ok, I hope I said it all....ROY- great place, Sara -great stylist!!!

I have been coming to ROY Fairfax for a little over a year now and have always received great service. I recently came in for a cut and color and have to tell that I received exceptional service from Sara Schantz. It was my first time seeing Sara and I can truly say that I feel like she goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable while you are with her. My wonderful service did not stop when my appointment ended either, as I have received a thank you card from her along with a follow-up phone call to see if I was satisfied with the outcome of the visit. I work in the service industry and know that exceptional service should always be applauded. You have found a great find in Sara and I look forward to my next appointment with her.
Thank you, Dawn Whitaker
AMAZING PLACE. Sara is great and her quality of work and understanding is unbeatable. I was the type that always fought my hair and hated to spend money on it, but Sara has helped to create a hair style I love an can't live without. Everyone is friendly and will work with you to get you whatever you like. Or help you experiment if you're bored! Cannot say enough good things about this place and Sara.
Thank you, J. (Oct 6, 2011)
AWESOME SERVICE, DECOR and STAFF. I had my haircut on Wednesday and am just amazed at the quality of service and friendliness of the staff. Everyone actually looks happy to be there and from the minute you walk through the door and are greeted by Katelynn you want to be there. Sara cut and styled my hair after a pretty thorough consultation which was a pleasant surprise for a guy's haircut. I have tried most of the other "good" salons in the area. ROY is head and shoulders above the rest.
Thank you, John (Oct 8, 2011)
Amanda Jones - Hairstylist
I had my first experience with ROY Salon yesterday. We moved to the area last August and it is alway hard to find a new hair salon that you feel comfortable going to. I went to another salon in Fairfax (highly rated) but left disappointed with the cost and service provided. So, I got online and found ROY Salon and thought I would give it a try.
Making my appointment was easy. I got in very quickly for a cut, color and eyebrow wax. Amanda was my stylist and she did a fantastic job! I can honestly say I got the best cut and color I have had in a very long time : ) She recommended a couple of products to help me manage my very fine/thin hair and they actually work!
I was very pleased with my experience at ROY Salon. The only thing missing was a really nice scalp massage with the shampoo. Most places I have gone in the past spent a few minutes massaging your scalp at the shampoo bowl (which is probably my favorite part of going to a salon). It's just a nice relaxing extra that makes the client feel well taken care of. But really the experience was great. I will be going back...I already have my next appointment scheduled.

Absolutely LOVE this place. Best haircut EVER (I'm 27 with long thick waves of brown).
Made my first appointment at ROY and was treated like a VIP client as soon as I walked in. While I sipped iced tea out of a wine glass, Amanda sat down with me for a free consultation about my hair likes/dislikes/characteristics, etc., so that she could better understand what I was looking for. 2 hours later, I walked out with new semi-permanent color (Color Gloss), a few more layers in my mane, some Devacurl product, and a brand new outlook on life. Amanda explained in detail how the product would work with my hair and made me feel extremely comfortable and excited. A day later, I still look amazing.
I chose this salon based on the incredible reviews and am so thankful that I did. Amanda was fabulous, knowledgeable, professional, and fun. Prices are very reasonable for the expertise and atmosphere.
Although I live in Silver Spring, MD, I will definitely return to Fairfax for my next cut and color. And although I usually am not a proponent of peer pressure... DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

Tisa Robbins - Hairstylist, Nail & Waxing Specialist
I have been going to ROY and Tisa for a few years now and I absolutely LOVE her!! What I really like about her and her technique is that each time I get a hair cut/color, she cuts it a bit differently and the outcome is always funky and cool....rock starish quality and that is what I am going for! Another thing I have to say about Tisa is that she can work with what I am asking of her. I often have grand ideas for my hair...sometimes unrealistic, but Tisa listens, takes her time, puts her art into it, and always comes up with a solution that fits my personality and my look. She works magic and I think she must be telepathic in this way!! Additionally, she has great color-vision and foresight. Her advice has always been sound and she has been honest and up front with me every time. These are a few reasons why I keep going to her and to the salon.
