Friendly, efficient, cut just like I wanted. Thanks!

As always, Leslie did a fantastic job!

Yet another peaceful relaxing time at Salon Nouveau. Service is awesome and Sheila does an excellent job. I always leave feeling special!

Dawn is excellent at choosing colors for my hair..I sit down and say do whatever you want... and I'm always pleased!! super job!!

Always a great experience and treat at salon nouveau

Finest style... comfortable and professional.

best haircut i've had in months

Dawn always makes me look better every time she shears my straight locks. Love the new color! However,Colleen is upset with me for not going lighter. Thanks! Pam Aune

Really fabulous hair cut today with Amanda - she gave me a relaxing head massage before the cut. Great way to start off the weekend!

So sweet, did an excellent job, on time. Wonderful experience, I will definitely go back to her.

Stylist Becky gave me a hair cut on Sat, April 1. As usual she was on time and did an excellent job. She also adjusted her regular schedule to accommodate my next appointment. I also want to give some accolades to your receptions. They are always so friendly and accommodating. Thank you, Sharon

I am always happy with the service I receive. Andy always gives me an excellent hair cut.

I've been coming to Andi - through a friend's recommendation - for about four years. She is great at giving me the cut I want, which tends to vary quite a bit from cut to cut. Love her!

Sheila was great! She was personable, funny and instantly made me feel comfortable. She did my eyebrows quickly, yet still talked through why she was doing what she was doing. She also recommended a new Aveda Serum that she was using to calm the skin around my brows after the wax. Thank you!

Called desperate for a refresh but had limited time. Was so glad they were able to fit me in and the whole experience was far better than I thought as expecting. I'm always nervous going to someone new. But Ashley and I were on the same page from the get go!!

Great job! On time and great cut. Thank you!

Mercedes was great. I lucked in to meeting her by booking a last minute haircut appointment on a Saturday. She was so kind and professional, I rebooked with her that day for a highlight a week or so later. She again did a great job. I have since referred a few friends to her, and one has gone to her so far, with also great things to say about her. Mercedes is an asset, and truly loves what she is doing.

Prompt, friendly and does a good job. Always a pleasure!

I think Sheila is amazing. She really listens to you, and pays attention to how your hair grows and will fall best. She showed me how to style it, and paid attention to how much work I am reasonably capable of for daily hair maintenance. One of the best haircuts I've ever had!

I love the service at South Bend salon Nouveau! From the time you walk into the salon, the girls at the desk and my stylist Sheryl is just fabulous ! I have recommended the salon to several friends and will continue to do so in the future!

I've been seeing Amanda Brown since I moved to SB for grad school and she is just the best. Not only has she given me wonderful haircuts (which has - happily - been the basis for many referrals), but she is an awesome human being. I recently got a drastic haircut which I totally LOVE (and so did everyone else) but realized I wanted to go a bit shorter (i.e., shave the sides) about a week and a half later. Amanda took care of it for free, which I totally was not expecting but was super nice of her (esp. given my grad student budget). More generally, I've always been very happy with the salon and its employees - who are all very friendly and helpful!

As usual my hair looks great, I just sit in the chair and ask how she want's yo do it!

Always enjoy getting my hair done here. Staff is super friendly and my stylist has been super patient with trying a new hair color every other time I come in. Able to make appointments in advance and if they need to be changed it's easy to do.

as always, I walk out of the Salon with great color and cut after Dawn works her magic. She gives reasonable tips on how to get the best look out of my hair until I see her again... thank you Dawn!!

I referred a gal who is special needs and the stylist did a fabulous job and took her time with Renee. I so appreciate the attention she gave her. You girls are awesome. To my surprise, I received a voucher for products, which I will use when I run out of my current supply. Thank you!

A pleasure

Sheila is AMAZING. Nothing short of a miracle worker on hair! I love you so much darling! She is kind and caring and has a heart of gold! Couldn't ask for a better environment while there! Thank you my dear friend!

I had a fantastic experience with Alexis. She was personable, honest and sincere. I have only had 2 stylists in the last seven years, both of which I drove about 90 minutes to see. Moving forward, I will be calling Alexis to cut and color my hair. She was really great! Thanks and have a great New Year, oh and the girl at the front desk (Mercedes?) was really sweet too.

You can never go wrong with Salon Nouveau!

Great cut! Merry Christmas to all!

I am very happy with the service.

I was very happy with the service provided by Becky this evening. She was efficient and professional.

Sheila out did herself. I have a cut short sporty cut that I absolutely love. And as always, I enjoyed my visit to Salon Nouveau!

Dawn is excellent... I walk in and tell her to do what she wants and I'm never disappointed!!

I love your salon and the hair dressers. Alexis is my girl and she is the best always listens to my opinion and I listen to hers because she is the professional.


She's the BEST!

Marika is awesome! She listens to what you wants. Makes suggestions and does excellent work.

Leslie did an amazing job on the color and cut. She made suggestions on how to switch up the color, but nothing crazy! Leslie is wonderful! Thank you.

Alexis did a great job on my hair today! She has mastered getting my highlights and overall color perfect for fall!

Every trim and color is always perfect and what I ask for. Always a consistent place.

Shelia Dunlap does an awesome job! She is experienced, knows color and is current. Love her!

Megan does a wonderful job! The staff that checks in you are always happy to see you. Very relaxing and welcoming environment.

Sheila always has great suggestions for my hair. The color she put on is perfect and so is the cut!

Outstanding services!

the best color I have received in recent memory. Alexis suggestions were exceeded only the her execution. loved, loved, loved everything about this relaxing, restorative experience.

Cheryl has been controlling my hair since we were 21 and 22!! We are much older and wiser now!! Still I would not let anyone else touch my hair if I had free color and cuts from them for a year!

Great cut! Had several people stop and comment--love your hair style. Thank you Cheryl!!!!

The best!

I love going to Salon Nouveau. Everyone is so friendly and professional. From the time I arrive to the moment I leave the staff makes me feel welcome. Alexis does such an amazing job with my hair and she knows which products work best for me.

I always go to Shelia! She always knows what to do and takes the time for perfection. I got my hair dyed a dark chocolate brown and it turned out so good!

I love coming to the salon and seeing Leslie. She does an amazing job every time. I couldn't be happier.

great experience!

Leslie is wonderful! I love it when she is able to do my hair. It is a wonderful experience - from the moment that I sit down in her chair to when she shows me the cut/color. Thank you!

I am very please with the service I receive.

Dawn, again was wonderful... she is creative and always does a great cut and color!! thank you, thank you Dawn... Deb Nehls

Perfect as usual! Going to miss you, Dawn!

I got clipped!

Outstanding Services and Products!

Andi always does a great job with my hair. Everyone is friendly and I enjoy coming to get my hair done.

So elated that Sheila Dunlap is back at Salon Nouveau! I even brought my husband for a haircut and he said it's the first time a stylist has done his hair the way he wants. We'll be back!

I enjoy having my hair cut and styled at your shop. Britinie (spelling) does a great job and gets it right every time.

Love my new hairstyle! Sheila is great!

Amanda did an excellent job. Quick: I was in and out and my bangs look great.

Marika dos such a fantastic job on my hair and is incredibly personable and kind!

I've only ever used this salon for haircuts, but I really like the master stylist I use. Highly recommended place!

Great haircut. I was very pleased

1st off I love Aveda products. Most of all I love Alexis, she listens and wants to give you what you want but adds her opinion when I ask her. She is always on time and give me the time I need with her full attention. Love Salon Nouveau because for her

My stylist is literally more like a friend to me than just a stylist! I always enjoy my trip to the salon because of our conversations and time to catch up with her to hear what's going on in her life as well as sharing what's going on in mine! At other salons I used to be scared to see the results of my hair ... but here I am 100% confident my hair will turn out perfect!

Hands down best haircuts in town and Ashley is as good as they ever get. She's super friendly and really really good at her job.

as usual Dawn did a fantastic color job on my hair and the cut is right on!! thank you for a job well done, Dawn!!

I have always had a good experience here. I have seen three different women and each did a great job cutting my hair. And I have some pretty long thick hair. Thank you ladies! And thanks to all the staff who definitely keep your best interest in mind, offering water or coffee after walking through the door and even sometimes taking your coat for you. I've learned so much, maybe most importantly how to ask for what I want done. I will keep recommending Salon Nouveau. Oh! Don't forget you get a scalp message. Now tell me who else does that?!

Excited !!!! Love Cheryl and the rest of the stylists ! Best salon ever!

I have been a customer of Andi for 6 years and now that I am in Indianapolis, I cannot find anyone that takes the time and has the knowledge Andi does in hair care and styling. I recently visited Andi for a haircut after 5 months and I forgot what it feels like to have a haircut that can make you feel confident and feel good. Thanks Andi!!! -Chris G.

Andi did yet another fantastic job on taming my hair ~ and was considerate to work me into a busy day. Thank you!

I love that this place makes you feel like family. It is a relaxed but professional atmosphere and the staff works well together.

Andi did another fantastic job on my color and cut of my hair. I so enjoy and look forward to the experience of getting my hair done at Salon Nouveau because Andi always goes the extra mile to help me figure out what products are best for my hair. She took the time to really listen to what I was looking for, and was able to get the color and style that I was hoping for better than I had imagined. My hair can be difficult to work with and there is a lot of it, so I appreciate all the patience and time Andi takes with me when I come see her. I absolutely love coming to see Andi at Salon Nouveau - she is the best! :)

Brit has been doing my hair and she is amazing. Always willing to try different things and change it up often. She is always professional. The ladies in the front are very courteous and friendly. I enjoy going there!!

Alley was wonderful,as usual.

Great job love Marika.

She is always on time, offers water or coffe and dues an excellent job with my hair. She us also good at offering priducts I may like but not being too pushy.

Thank you, Salon Nouveau and Ashley, for fitting me in on walk-in basis yesterday. I SO appreciate! You guys are the very, very BEST. I love you all. Sidney

I wouldn't go to anyone but Leslie for coloring or cutting my hair!

I love Salon Nouveau. I have been a customer for 20 years. Now my daughters love it too.

Alexis Szymanski has done an amazing job with my hair. I LOVE that she listens to what you want and I could not be happier with my hair.

thank you!

Excellent customer service. Love the spa services. Karen is the only person I would trust to do my nails! Love the Aveda products. Cheryl always does a great job with my hair. All staff go above and beyond to accommodate my schedule. Thank you!

Cheryl is a treat. Always with a smile and chipper attitude. I trust her with all my hair's ups and downs. I consider her as a friend also. A highly valued asset to Salon Nouveau. Thank you Cheryl.

Alexis was wonderful,very friendly and gave feed back on the color, style and my hair type, thank you Alexis.

Alway happy with the service

Great hair cut experience on ironwood

I was running 15 minutes late for my appointment and when I arrived I was greeted as if I wasn't late at all. It was the end of the day and they told me do not worry about the time of my arrival everything was fine. My service was not rush by any means, and my hair turned out great as it usually does! Highly recommend this l highly recommend this salon!

Had an amazing visit with Amanda getting an updo. She did a beautiful job. I will definitely be back for another one! Loved the results!

I love coming to the salon every time, I am always satisfied when I leave. Alexis is so professional and honest with me. I couldn't be any home pleased with Salon Nouveau and the staff.

Love it here! Love Ashley Sears!

wonderful color and cut!!! thank you for a job well done!!

Amanda is a talented stylist and has a lovely personality.

A relaxed, comfortable spot for a fantastic style - Salon Nouveau fulfills its promise! P.S. Marika rocks!

Ashley and Andi have made my hair look better then it is has in years!

I just love Leslie! She does an amazing job with color!!!

Amanda is awesome!!!

Becky is the best!


Amanda is awesome! Great haircut (and conversation) every time.

Is awesome! Great stylist -- look forward to my weekly haircut. Mike Harrity

Why do I wait so long, my hair looks good, it makes me feel good. Thank you

Andi worked her magic again.... She did a fantastic job, giving me a new look but also making it user friendly. Keep up the great work!

Amanda was fabulous. I love the cut she gave me and the blow out. Wish I could blow my hair out like that!!

I always know how the results are going to turn out when I walk into your salon! Thank you for the great service Ashley and Salon Nouveau!

Marika always does a fantastic job. Love her!

My hair looks so good. The color Dawn did is great. She is a true artist.

Been a customer for over 20 years and they keep getting better. Always a pleasant relaxing experience.

I always have an amazing experience at Salon Nouveau! Brittany was my stylist today and she did a super job. My hair is soooo blonde and curly! I love it!

Always get compliments on my hair. They know the latest styles and techniques.

Service is terrific and very prompt! Excellent stylists, Leslie does a great job, would recommend to anyone looking for highlights, color or cut!

She is always so personable and remembers what you like after working with you for awhile. I also go to Marika (and Leslie when Marika is not in) for hair and they are also great to deal with. That is one of the things I love about Salon Nouveau - the staff!

Always a great cut and service is fantastic!

Terrific service by cheryl

Great service from Leslie. Love your salon.

Thanks Dawn for a great job done. Everybody loves it and I promise I won't color it myself again! Oh yes, I love it too!

A style that is just what I asked for and exactly wheat is promised delivered by a true professional.

The salon has a nice ambience and Becky my stylist is the best!

Great service as also from Cheryl. She listens and advises and I end up with a great cut and color!!!

amanda took great care withme! Thanks

In all the years I've been a client of Dawn Jarrett's and Salon Nouveau, I've never been treated rudely or disrespectfully, nor have I ever had a bad haircut. I've even told Dawn she'd better not retire before I croak! Today, during my appt., the salon was very busy, and you could hear and see that the other clients and stylists were all having a good time. I've watched the employees interact with each other and their clients, and found the spirits always high, pleasant and full of fun. The Aveda products are excellent, smell great, and I've been using them for years. Guess the only complaint I have about the Ironwood salon is that the toilet's too low! You have enough mature customers to warrant a modern, taller toilet.

I have been seeing Andi regularly for 5 years now, and it's always a great experience. She knows my hair and can wash, cut, blow dry, and style over my lunch hour!

Always a friendly-great experience!

I had my first appointment at Salon Nouveau with Ashley and it was a great choice to switch Salons! It was very relaxing and I could fully trust Ashley with my hair. She showed me how to style it quickly and easily and she totally sold me on two AWESOME Aveda hair products!

Great service and results! What more could you ask for at a salon? Sold! No need to look any further!

I have been going to Salon Nouveau for a number of years and I have always been very happy with the services I have receieved. The gals at the font desk have always been very helpful. The hair dresser has given me the hair style I want. (Cheryl). Karen has always given me a great manicure and pedicure. You have to ask them how many years I have been going to them.

Ashley is the best stylist I've ever had and I wish iI can convince her to go with me wherever iI go from here.

As always, I am very happy with the service. Marika is fantastic and quite knowledgable. She just seems to know what kind of haircut and color I want. Thank you!

My low lights & cut were relaxing & I am ready for autumn.

I love this place. Clean, always on time, and my hair is perfect every time. Thank you Lesley!

I had a wonderful hair wash and styling with Amanda today. She's the best! Nancy McAdams

Always great. Ashley is a terrific stylist and person. BEST Aveda salon in the city.

Leslie was wonderful as always. It was a relaxing evening. Thank you!! Amber Peña

Great haircut and color!

Alexus is very good. She even fit me in when I messed up the time and arrived a half an hour late for my tint.

I am always treated very well! Everyone is polite and friendly. I especially enjoy all of the Aveda products that you use and now that I use.

Andi is great!! I love my haircut and she is very friendly and personable!

Absolutely great styling. Always enjoy my visits

The service was attentive and professional.

Andi is my favorite but all the girls are awesome!

What a friendly team you have and it has been so fun getting to know them over the years. My main person has been Marika, but use Leslie when Marika isn't available and Brit-Bran for nails. You have created a family atmosphere obviously since you have so much longevity among your stylists which is great - I enjoy every visit!

Great service!! Cheryl Sandefur is friendly, efficient, and does an excellent job. Makes the whole experience like visiting a friend. I won't go anywhere else.

Excellent friendly service.

Leslie is top notch , styling & color is always what I want.... Great service, clean shop, always on time with appt. , great Aveda products


I've been going to Salon Nouveau for many, many years, frequenting both locations, wherever my talented, dear hair dresser is working. She is one of only two hair dressers who've known just how to cut and style my naturally curly hair so I have no regrets! I'd be crazy to abandon her, or the Salon she works at! The Aveda products carried by this salon are top quality, help keep my hair healthy, and smell heavenly. Salon Nouveau's receptionists are always polite, pleasant to talk to, and helpful. Excellent service, excellent results, and excellent staff---what more could a girl want from her salon?

Great job Alexis!

Alexis know her stuff great at short cuts and color

Great service... Cheryl was awesome as always! She always gives a great color and cut !

Got my hair colored today by Alexis. I love it!

I have been a client of Andi's for five and a half years now and I could not be happier with the service I receive. I also enjoy that the salon is never really done inventing itself, it's very organic.

Leslie did a fabulous job with my highlights. I love how she blends the highlights so as it grows out its not really noticeable.

Amanda always listens & does a wonderful job. Color is absolutely wonderful and New shorter cut looks great. Thanks Amanda. Nancy Meyer

I always know I will walk out with exactly what I want my hair to look like!

Can't say enough good things about her and her skills!

Good staff, amazing stylists. Its worth every cent. I've never had a bad experience.

Excellent! Made appt for next 2 months! Thanks

Leslie is awesome! She's on time, quick but friendly. She always offerse water or coffee abd tells me about new products. She also is good about referring other services, like massage.

Great job Alexis

over the last four - five years Andi has been nothing but the best. She just doesn't cut hair, she takes the time to understand the clients needs and acts appropriately towards them. I wish I made more financially so I could pay her for what she is worth. -Chris

I have no complaints. I have been going to Salon Nouveau for many years and have been more than satisfied. I get a great cut from Cheryl ? I also get manicure and a pedicure from Karen. This has been a great place to receive wonderful treatments. Salon Nouveau is the first place I have stayed this long.

Sheila is AMAZING.... The BEST

Thank you so much. Amanda did a great job! Love my color and cut!


i always enjoy my visits to the salon with Sheila Dunlap! She's great at getting my hair the exact color i want.

The new updates to the ironwood salon look so nice! It is do refreshing to walk in and see everyone's smiling faces! Andi always does such a great job with my hair, she knows exactly what I want and how to do it!

I keep returning to salon nouveau for haircuts because of their consistently wonderful customer service. The stylists listen to what I want and then send me off happy each time :) no small feat pleasing a customer with such fine, thin hair. Thank you Sheila and katelyn!

Many, many thanks to Sheila and Andi for their patience and expertise. My girls love their haircuts! We are ready for school.

I have short, very thick hair that grows crazy fast and it was difficult to find someone who could cut it in a style that was flattering until I found Marika. I get tons of complements from people on how cute my hair looks and its super easy to style!
