  1. My first time at Gore today… Great experience! I have always been leary of “haircuts” because of bad experiences in the past, but Karee did an excellent job and made me feel very comfortable and confident in her skills. First time in a long time, I have walked out of a salon feeling very happy with the results. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. I will be a returning customer!! Thanks again Karee!!


  2. I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing class you gave at Paul Mitchell The School Columbia. We would all love to have a chance to experience your teaching again . As a student I loved the fact that you did not just keep talking and talking, you took the time to answer any and all questions. You also encourged us to ask the questions and that showed us you cared about our learning experience.
    Again i say thank you.

  3. Are you located in Columbia area. I am trying to grow my hair out and would like to have human hair extensions without breaking my hair off anymore!

    1. Lex, the cost of our extensions vary dependent upon a few factors, if you would like we can set you up a consultation appointment and get a round about cost for you. Please call the salon at 803-781-4515 to set up a consult with Ashton. Thank you for you inquiry, and have a wonderful day.

  4. Am African American. Have been coloring hair black since the beginning of time. Would like to slow to not completely grey. Would be willing to spend a year with you. Can you do this?

  6. Hello,
    Prom day is coming up very soon for me, I have my dress and shoes. But, the problem I can’t get over is my hair… It’s very short (at least 4-4 1/2″) and 3″ in the back. I’ve tried curling(didn’t look good) cripping(loses its wave with in 2-3 hrs.) I could really use some advise asap.
    More info to help, my dress is navy blue with silver beading on top, and my shoes are silver. (I wanted to find away to include something into my hair)
    Thank you!!:)

    1. Hello Caitlin,

      I have discussed it with a few of the stylists, and we think we may have some ideas to help you! If you would give us a call at 803-781-4515, I would love to give you their ideas, and maybe set up a consultation with Tiffany to get a better idea of what will and will not work for you specifically!

      Thanks so much for your inquiry!

  7. Hi.
    I have been wanting to try the Ombre Hair hair for a while now. However i have been wanting to try it with extensions. I am african american and I have ethnic hair. do you think your salon would be a good fit for the style I am trying to accomplish?

    1. Hello Maya!

      So… There are 2 types of Ombre Color, regular (from light at the roots to dark at the tips) and reversed (from dark at the roots to light at the tips). Regular Ombre CAN be done on extensions, however reversed CANNOT because extensions cannot be lightened. I hope this answers your question, however if you do have any further questions please feel free to give us a call at the salon!

      Thank you!

  8. Just today I had six extensions (hot head) put in my hair. Three on each side. They are so natural looking. I am going away to the beach for a week. I suppose the best thing to do is wear a hat. I am using “Nioxin” shampoo/conditioner and treatment.

    Please advise if that product is good for hair. Any alcohol in them ?
    Any tips would be appreciated.


    1. Hello Jayna,

      I have spoken with Ashton, our resident Hot Heads expert, and she would NOT advise using Nioxin products with your extensions. Being a deep cleansing shampoo it may dry out the extensions, she would suggest using one of the Pureology lines, however we will not know which one is best for you unless you were to come in and have us determine your hair type. Also, chlorine and salt water are not good for extensions. If you go swimming, we suggest doing your best to NOT get the extensions wet. In fact, you want to avoid keeping the extensions wet for a prolonged period of time no matter if it is tap water, salt water or chlorine.

      Hope this helps! If there are any further questions we can answer for you please feel free to call us, or stop by the salon!

      Thank you so much & have fun at the beach đŸ™‚

  9. Hi, I was wondering how much you would charge for an ombre on long hair as I am trying to find a good salon to do this for me. Thanks!

    1. Hi Hayley,

      Ombre color is kinda hard to price, it can range anywhere from $60-$120 depending on a few factors, that we can only determine once we have see you hair length, thickness, and current color. I do have a few stylist with experience with Ombre, and I would love to have you come in and meet someone for a free consultation so we can get you a more exact price! consults only take a few minutes and I can usually squeeze someone in on pretty short notice, so if you would like to set one up just give us a call at 803-781-4515!

      Thanks so much!

    1. We can do that! đŸ™‚ If you would like to give me a call at the salon (803-781-4515) I can set up a consultation for you with Ashton ASAP.

  10. Can your stylist remove dark color and replace with a lighter color on black hair that is natural? Can you work with natural hair?

    1. Trish, We can definitely work with natural hair! I would like to get you in for a free consultation so one of our stylists can get an idea of what you would like your end result to look like, then we can explain the process to you and give you a price quote! I can either have you come by for the consultation one day, and then schedule the actual appointment following the consut, or I can book both the consultation and appointment for the same time. If you can give me a call @ 803-781-4515 we can discuss it further, and decide what would be the best option for you! thank you so much for your question, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    1. Ashley, normally our special occasion hair appointments run about $55. This of course could be a little more or less depending on the specific style you are wanting. I can set up a free consultation appointment for you if you would like to discuss it with Tiffany (our up-do queen!) and have her give you a more accurate price quote! If you are interested in coming in to speak with her please feel free to call me at the salon (803-781-4515) to set up a quick appointment. Thanks so much for your question and have a fantastic day!

    1. Highlights are always fun! they can be subtle or extreme, and the different looks we can achieve are endless! We would love to have you come in and see us! if you would like to set up an appointment please feel free to call us at 803-781-4515! Thanks so much and have a great day!

  11. My daughter recently had her hair damaged so badly by a coloring job gone wrong that the hair stylist had to cut her hair extremely short because it was breaking off. I know the website says an consult appt but if you could please give me a ballpark cost so that she can determine if it is even possible financially I would greatly appreciate it.

    1. Cindy, were you needing us to do a color correction or were you interested in extensions? If you would be willing to give me a call at the salon we can discuss it further and see what information I can get for you! the number is 803-781-4515, thanks so much!

  12. I can’t brag enough about my visit! The atmosphere was awesome and my stylist Tiffany was wonderful. Thank you Gore Salon!


  13. Do you guys participate with Locks Of Love donors? I have over 12 inches of hair and am ready to donate it! Do you charge also charge more after a certain length.

    1. We are more than happy to assist you in a donation to Locks of Love!! We do not charge extra to cut off more length, we simply secure the hair with a hair tie and cut directly above it, and then style the cut after that! If you would like to set up an appointment please give me a call at 803-781-4515. Thanks so much for your inquiry!

  14. I love this salon. I have never had MY hair place where I knew I was going to be going… This is MY hair salon, and I will be going there for all future hair appointments!! Also, amazed at the price for hair coloring!! They actually listen and give you the haircut you ask for!!! It is so new to me!!! Thanks Ashley!!

  15. I love this salon. My normal stylist moved a year ago and i have been search ever since. I had a picture printed of a style I loved. I didn’t show the stylist ( I trusted her judgement). When I got out of the chair I looked at the picture and it was almost 100% the same. What a great salon!

  16. i recently went to the Paul Mitchell school downtown and asked for a trim and they murdered my long hair, cut it all off. How much would it be to correctly cut/style and then add some highlights?

    1. Marina, our Cut and Styles are $45 and a partial usually runs $65, however if you were to get them at the same time the cost of the cut will go down. If you would like to make an appointment please feel free to call me at 803-781-4515. Thank you!

    1. Kayla, honestly it is near to impossible to give a price range for Ombre without first doing a consultation because every Ombre is different. Some are subtle requiring only a few foils, while others are drastic. I have a few stylists with experience doing Ombre color and would love to get you in for a quick consultation to see if the look you would like to achieve is in your price range! if you would like to set up a free consult please give me a call at the salon. 803-781-4515. Thank you so much.

  17. Tiffany is fantastic-even when I’m not quite sure what to do with my hair, her suggestions are always spot on and every friend I’ve referred to her feels the same way about their experience with her. She is definitely fantastic at what she does!!!!! I will not even consider letting anyone else touch my hair so I hope she doesn’t move…lol.

    1. Hello Kayla,

      The cost of our extensions vary dependent upon many factors, if you would like to have a consultation with Ashton to discuss cost I would be more than happy to set one up. Just call us at 803-781-4515.

      Thank you!

  18. I love my new cut and color! Ashley did a great job! The atmosphere was very comfortable and everyone was friendly. I’ll be going back in 6 wks. for my touch-up. Thanks again!

  19. I have been searching for a new stylist that listens to my ideas and gives me her own, honest opinion which is what I asked. I found Tiffany. Great color and cut and working toward the style I ultimately want. Very professional.

  20. Hello. My hair is both long and thick. It’s naturally blond but I’ve dyed it multiple times. Right now it’s a light to medium brown, but I’d like it blond again. Preferably, I’d like it platinum blond again. On an estimated scale, about how much would that cost?

    1. Hello Nichole, Unfortunately It is extremely difficult to price a service like the one you would like done without a consultation first because there are so many different things that they may need to do to achieve the look you are looking for. I would suggest you call me at the salon so I can set up a time for you to see a stylist and get a price quote (803-781-4515) I look forward to hearing from you! -Stephanie Hollis

  21. I loved the salon and my hair cut is just what I wanted. Everyone was friendly but professional at the same time. My cut has lasted longer than 6 weeks and I love that.

  22. looking for a new stylist, just moved here from the northeast and have had my last stylist for 30 years and I loved him, very nervous about finding someone new who can make me feel good about how I look. My last stylist was always keeping up with the lastest techniques. I really need a Good Cut, as I keep my hair on the short side. Thanks

  23. Please call us and make an appointment for a complimentary consultation. We would be happy to have you as a new client. Howard Gore one of our owners specializes in short hair. Please call and make an appointment with him. Thank you.

  24. I was looking for a new Stylist, having just moved here from NH and I found Howard….he was great, made me feel comfortable and gave me a good haircut…..I will be returning!!!! The salon has nice appeal and everyone was very nice that I spoke to on my visit!!!! Very happy to have found Gore Salon!!!

  25. Hi I am new here from the Chicago area, found your site online and wanted to pay a visit for a haircut. I am trying to get the new client voucher to send to my email and it is not working. Please advice.
    Hope to be making an appointment soon.

    Thank you,


  26. I had my hair /washed/cut/styled on Friday September 19, 2014 by Laura Carrion. She did an excellent job! I will definitely be having her do my hair from this day forward, and recommend her services to others. BRAVO GORE HAIR SALON.

    1. Thank you so very much, Linda, for your kind words of praise and encouragement!!! It means so much to me!! I truly enjoy what I do for a living. I want each and every one of my clients to have healthy, manageable hair that makes them feel proud, stylish and chic! I look forward to seeing you again!!

  27. Fantastic Salon where their customer service sits as high as their talent!! Love my color and cut done by Heather Zechman, and it is so nice to walk out feeling pretty! Thank you

  28. Laura Carrion has been my stylist for several years now. I have very thin, wispy hair now due to chemo , cancer treatment and health problems and looked for many years to find someone who could make me feel good about my appearance. She is not only the best stylist I have ever had in my life but she is funny, sweet, kind and understanding. My hair appointment days are my best days because I always come home, look in the mirror and think, ” Hey! Maybe I still have it!” Thank you, Laura!

  29. Do y’all use a product called olaplex ? I am looking to take my hair from black to blonde tips some what of a balayage and ombrĂ© mix look. I’ve read about this product and have read only great things. When looking for a salon that uses it your name popped up. Just wondering if this is accurate or if I need to look elsewhere.

    1. Yes we do use Olaplex. We would need to do a color consultation with you to insure that the black color can be removed without destroying the integrity of the hair. Please give us a call at 781-4515 for a complimentary consultation.
