    Booked appointment here after carefully searching all reviews on Google and yelp. Was anxious switching salons but very pleased I did. Sheriene (spelling?) was awesome. Took time to evaluate my hair and understand what I wanted. She consulted me along the way. Ended up with great cut. Didn't pressure me to buy products like a lot of shops do. Will go back.

    I moved west from another mid-town community 3 years ago but remained loyal to a salon I had used there for over 12 years. It wasn't a perfect situation but it was comfortable. However, recently I had disasterous effects from coloring (a color I had had done for over a year).
    I reached out for a haircut to help remediate the severe breakage. However, I was put off for weeks as if I were a first time client.

    Realizing I needed immediate help, I contacted a few salons closer to my new (er) hometown, but either they were booked or simply didn't answer the phone (despite it being the middle of the day!). When I reached the Loft, Chris (who I now know to be the owner's husband) answered and immediately worked to get me in hours later with Sheriene - who he promised was excellent.

    It was true!! Not only was Sheriene extremely knowledgeable about my hairs' condition but made me feel welcomed and cared for. She is funky and adorable and gave me amazing attention despite having several cleints mid-color or blowout. We decided together to do a much shorter, but just as hip cut, to get my hair back in health and it turns out to be a great look for me. It was all it took to become an immediate fan.

    I am so happy to support this new salon run by a owner who really knows her stuff and deserves the support she gave to me during my "hair emergency" (and we have ALL had them!). The salon is intimate and modern and feels like being in a club of "those in the know."

    I am giving 4 stars at this time ONLY because I have yet to work with Sheriene on color - but so far, 5 stars for service and skill.

    What a great, down to earth and beautiful salon. Sarayah is a color genius. Sheriene is so welcoming and creates a fun and inviting atmosphere. The service is high end, the location is adorable, and I can’t wait to return!

    This Madison NJ salon is better than NYC ones. Sheriene is by far the best colorist and stylist I've ever come across and her place is fun, high tech and super friendly. I highly recommend Sheriene and The Loft Salon in Madison, NJ.

    I always leave feeling fabulous. Sheriene is an amazing stylist and colorist...if you haven't been, get there!

  • *****

    Just had the best experience! Needed Corrective Color and I'm so beyond happy. Received wonderful reviews from family, friends and colleagues. Highly recommend this place. Sheriene is the best colorist and stylist I've have ever had. Finally found a great salon.

    Sheriene was terrific! I brought a picture of what I was looking for in terms of balayage, and she exceeded my expectations! Great service, she tweaked my idea a bit to have it better suit me. I could not be happier with my new hair!!

  • *****

    Coming from a new client out of state I'm extremly impressed with the professionalism and family friendly atmosphere. Firstly I had to bring my two young children with me while I had a full highlight, gloss, cut and over all root color with hair down my back. Talk about stressful.... Not here, they accommodated me and my children. I have had less luck from other salons in this area... My stylist was Nicole. Upbeat, professional and knowledgeable. Very informative on how to complete my look and eager to please. My hair is gorgeous! Extremely satisfied. I will be returning.

    Awesome salon, great color! Can’t wait to go back and see the expansion. My new “go to’ for highlights

  • *****

    I walked in there with a bad haircut and Sheriene knew just how to fix it! Now I feel fabulous! Thank you so much!

  • *****

    I was walking around with a haircut that I was really unhappy with and saw the rave reviews for The Loft Salon, so I gave them a call. Just got home from my haircut and I love it! Sheriene understood exactly what I wanted and was able to fix the bad cut. I feel fabulous! Thank you!!!

  • *****

    I would recommend The Loft Salon to my friends. The salon is well decorated and creates a relaxing atmosphere. I got a balayage and toner treatment by Sarayah. She is very talented. An added bonus is she is kind enough to answer any questions you have about hair, and is very easy to talk to while in the chair. Thank you ladies!

  • *****

    Love my new haircut! Love Sheriene! Very friendly and did a great job. I will definitely be going back!

  • *****

    I went here for Sarayah, she originally cut my hair, she did some color this time using oil slick and it came out AMAZING!! She's extremely patient, answers all your questions and pays attention to the health of your hair. I have very dark thick "indian" hair, and she was able to dye it with minimal to no damage. I got raving reviews from everyone. My sister went the following week for balayage, and she literally looks amazing with caramel highlights. Thank you so muchh!!

    Also, if you're Muslim and wear hijab, this space is very private, clean, updated, trendy and modern and accommodating !

    Very happy with cut and color! Beautiful new space, relaxing and serene, upscale and reasonable pricing for top quality services and products.!

    I got my hair colored by Nicole and she was amazing. I've had a color in mind and haven't had much luck with past colorists but Nicole knew exactly what I wanted and it came out perfect. Not only did she listen to me with regards to what I wanted but she also explained the whole process to me so that I better understood what was being done to my hair. She also gave me great advice on how to maintain my color while also keeping my hair strong and healthy. So happy I finally found the right colorist for my hair.

  • *****

    Lovely experience! Sheriene was wonderful and knew exactly what I wanted (even though I really didn't know what I wanted). Beautiful salon, lovely women, beyond beautiful results. I definitely recommend this gorgeous salon.

  • *****

    Had an appointment for a blow out with Sarayah during her first week at the salon. The ambience and vibe is unbelievable and everybody was so welcoming. I will definitely be back!!!

  • *****

    My first time here today and I had a great experience! The customer service was excellent. I was offered beverages on several occasions, my color came out great and I even received a complimentary blow out. Will definitely return!

  • *****

    I love what Sheriene does with my hair. Her attention to detail is great. I love visiting her beautiful salon. Can't wait until she expands her services!

  • *****

    The best hair salon ever very nice treatment I recommend to anyone I hope I can come by again when I am in the area save my life for that day very great service

  • *****

    Great space with responsive staff who listen!!! Great experience all around.

  • *****

    Noelle took amazing care of my hair and I left with the color I wanted, doesn't get better than that. I came in with a grey that had since faded to a nice sea green from a previously salon, but it had grown in a bit uneven and it was time for change. Noelle suggested a rose gold and we went for it. Super pleased with the results!

  • *****

    I cannot say enough good things about Noel. I came in last minute Sunday with a MAJOR hair emergency. The salon I went to the day before had butchered my hair and I was in desperate need of a fix. Noel was so sweet and spent lots of time walking though what she would need to do to correct. She made sure I was comfortable with each suggestion. Highly recommend! I will definitely be using her in the future.

  • *****

    Fitted me in last minute. I usually have my hair cut by my trusted hairdresser in the UK BUT I finally had to have my hair cut here after not having been to the UK for 8 months. Having tried 3 other salons in Madison and not being happy with the cut, I was nervous about trying another ..... but I am SO HAPPY. Great service, great salon, great environment and best of all a great cut. She listened and suggested.

  • *****

    I went in to see Sheriene again, she never lets me down! Need someone who will give suggestions on the most flattering cut for your face shape? Sheriene. She always gets it right.

  • *****

    I not only had such a fun experience at the Loft, but Sheriene gave me the best cut and highlights ever and that's saying a lot since I've been doing this for over 20 years! Unlike another salon in town, you're not their for hours just for highlights. Sheriene colored, cut, dried and curled my hair all under 2.5 hours! She truly is the best. She's not inexpensive but neither are the other salons. With Sheriene, you really get what you pay for!

  • *****

    Love, love, love this salon!! Sheriene did an amazing job with my color...I went in for a blonde color correction and she finally gave me the color I've been wanting. Highly recommend!

  • *****

    I have now been going to Sheriene since just after she opened...she is amazing and does wonders with color and cuts. Can't say enough great things about this salon!

  • *****

    A must go- Sheriene is an incredibly talented and a top notch owner and master stylist in every way. This salon is the one you have been searching for-customer service, ease of appointments, as well as expanding to include every service only a full pampering at a day spa could match.

  • *****

    The Loft Salon by Sheriene happens to be my favorite getaway! She's so accommodating with booking appointments AND always open Mondays. I purchased her new monthly service package and it's so easy and perfect for constant maintenance. Wishing Sheriene the best with this fabulous salon in madison NJ.

  • *****

    Such a chic and serene salon! Sheriene took the right amount of time to talk through what haircut would work best for me and she did a phenomenal blowout. I've never seen my hair look so full. The online appointment request worked perfectly and was super convenient. I'll be returning soon for hair color.

  • *****

    Just got the best hair cut of my life!!! Thank you Sheriene!!!
    See you next month!!!

  • *****

    Got my hair cut by Noel, and it was one of the best hair cuts I've ever had. Would definitely recommend!

  • *****

    I made a last Minute apt with Noel ,,,what a blessing
    My hair was green from a previous hair salon . She made my color and damage hair look like a princess out of a movie.
    Thank u Noel !!!!!

    I remember my first visit over a year now(this used to be called The Color Bar) to the salon and being afraid of changing my hair style from very long to short hair. I was greeted by lovely Sheriene who confidently suggested graduated bob and told me not to worry, she'll make it look perfect. And she did not disappoint! Since then I have been her committed client and surprisingly kept cutting my hair shorter and shorter! Sheriene's energy and passion for styling definitely shows on each of her clients. The new look of the salon is fresh, clean and trust me you will get out happy with assurance to come back.

  • *****

    I was referred to Sheriene by my nail salon looking for a last minute appointment on the Fourth of July weekend. Sheriene was so accommodating and welcoming even as she was putting her final touches on the salon for her grand opening.

    The salon in beautiful and Sheriene is fabulous. I can not say enough about her except go and have your hair done by her and you will then never allow anyone to do your hair except Sheriene as well!

  • *****

    Sheriene is fantastic! She invests in top of the line products and spends the time to make sure that you're completely happy with either your color or haircut.

    Sheriene has turned this salon into a very warm space with upscale products and relaxing touches.

    Great atmosphere. Definitely worth checking out this salon!

    I came to visit NJ as i was here for a wedding. The loft was one of the closest salons to my location and i'm so happy it was. I came in to get my hair done as an emergency as i was having issues with some of my extensions i had done back at home. i came in and they were able to fit me in right away and glad i had Sheriene do my hair. She was so nice and professional and did such an amazing job!!!! She really saved the day!!!!

  • *****

    I've been going to Sheriene since last summer, when this space was owned by The Color Bar, and became her devoted client my very first visit. I'm so glad that Sheriene was able to take over the space. She completely redid the interior, and it is gorgeous. Light, modern, and airy, the way a chic salon should be.

    Sheriene herself is a marvel with both color and cut. I give her a vague idea of what I want, but otherwise let her have her way with my hair. It turns out perfect, and better than I imagined, every time.

    Sheriene is a lovely, warm spirit, and the salon reflects both her generous personality and technical expertise. I can not recommend her, and the Loft Salon, highly enough.

    ProTip: The salon is in the alley off of Waverly. There is usually parking in the municipal parking lot, or on King's Road during busy hours. The salon is also just a few steps from the NJ Transit Madison Train Station.

  • *****

    I came across the salon from a referral from my nail salon I go to in town. Right when I came in I was warmly greeted by Sheriene.

    My first time there I got a fabulous blow out that I received MAJOR compliments on. Along with great conversation, I felt right at home.

    My second time I got a color, cut, and blow out. Let me tell you....transformational. My hair is long and has become so damaged because I have such curly hair and wear it straight everyday. Sheriene repaired and restored my hair to gorgeous locks.

    I grew up with hair stylists in my family and now that they're all retired I have finally found an amazing salon and stylist I trust!! Thank you Sheriene!!

  • *****

    Beautiful chic salon, the owner is a sweet heart, I got my hair done by ERIKA she was the best, she was very sweet knew exactly what I wanted and left my hair beautiful at the end! Prices are cheaper than most for an upscale salon like this one!

  • *****

    If you are looking for someone you can trust with your hair and looking for a new look, you can count on Sheriene.
    Once you start going to her, you will not go anywhere else. I've remained loyal to her services for now 6yrs and can't imagine not having her as my hair stylist

    She is not only on top of the latest trends in color and style but has a great eye in understanding what's best for you.
    I work in the Fashion Industry and constantly get compliments on my hair color and cut.

    Her Salon is a reflection of her aesthetic with the right balance of chic, modern yet warm.

    Highly recommend her work. You won't regret it.

  • *****

    I highly recommend this salon, Sheriene's personality is always warm and welcoming, not to mention the way she has remodeled the salon is so elegant.

    Her expert knowledge of hair coloring has repaired my hair in ways I couldn't even imagine. My hair also has grown so much since I have been going to her. Her treatments have transformed my hair. I have been a loyal customer for 3 years and always highly satisfied.

    I actually found The Loft Salon while I was on google. Visiting NJ from CA for a wedding in the beginning of December.

    I was completely floored with the knowledge and expertise that Sheriene showed me! The overall ambience of the Salon is chic and clean and there's really no one better.

    Not only did she give me quality extensions, but she went above and beyond for me with only a couple hours of notice! Sheriene didn't know me from the next person but she still managed to over night ship extensions from CA to NJ just to keep me as a customer.

    Needless to say, even though I reside in California, I will ONLY go to Sheriene all the at back East! That's no joke either!

    Sheriene, thank you for surpassing any and all expectations and going the extra mile to make me confident and happy! You are a master of your craft including but certainly not limited to hair and makeup, but health and beauty in general!

    The Loft Salon is such an amazing, "lofty" salon. I've been going to Sheriene for almost 2 yrs and can't imagine using anyone else. She takes the the time to listen to what I want and offers her suggestions based on her years of experience. I only wish I found her years ago!!!

  • *****

    Sherienne has been doing my hair for 6 years. I will never go anywhere else! Great services, great eye and a wonderful manner!

  • *****

    Sheriene and Carlos are wonderful!! I have difficult treated and curly hair, but they have both managed to exceed my expectations every time! The salon is lovely, modern, cozy, new and trendy! Thank you so much for a great service and outstanding place!

  • *****

    Great experience!!!! I had my hair cut by Noel. It was medium length and got a cute short bob. Everyone at salon gave great service. Upscale and professional salon.. highly recommend.

  • *****

    I'm so happy that Sheriene finally opened this wonderful Salon. Sheriene is an exceptional stylist who not only provides an amazing experience for her clients she listens to what they have to say! She always makes you look like a million bucks when you walk out her door.

    The salon is intimate and beautifully designs ed making you feel as if you were in one of the most wonderful high-end salons in Manhattan. However, you can look like $1 million without spending $1 million. The salon offers a comfortable and relaxing setting along with snacks and drinks that create a wonderful spa like environment. If you have a difficult hair issue or a haircut or color that didn't work out Sheriene is the master fixer! I wish I could have her do my hair everyday!
