I had the balayge by Lori and the color looks great. She uses the Balayage products, so if you're looking for the real-deal, here she is. Balayage is a much, much better alternative to foils. The result is natural-looking and sunkissed (not harsh/bleachy) - think Jennifer Aniston/Gisele. It's the perfect way to add dimension to dark hair without adding stripes. Lori does a great job on cuts as well!

Lori was great the day of my wedding! I had nine girls getting their hair done, and she arrived early to make sure that we had enough time to complete all styling prior to pictures. Everyone's hair looked wonderful !

I had my first appointment with Lori this afternoon and it was a wonderful experience. She is extremely talented and I am amazed at how quickly she can achieve the perfect cut! I literally had 3 compliments on my hairstyle within the first hour after my appointment. She also uses amazing products and gives great advice on what to use to achieve the results you want. Bravo!

Lori is an amazing hair stylist. Honestly when i come to her she makes me feel like a million dollars every time. She takes her time and just makes me feel like i am the only one that matters it feels good. Lori has a true gift that just seems to come naturally. I would highly recommend her for any type of hair service. Joni G.

I had been going to a well known mega salon in Columbus but did not get the personal care and it would take 3 to 4 hrs for a color and cut. I transferred to a smaller high end salon in the Short North but was just never pleased with the color or cut but kept going back thinking things would be different the next time. Luckily I found Lori at Salon Lofts. She listened, looked and gave me a warm color and highlights along with a cut that complements my fine straight hair and face type. She totally understood what I needed and taught me to style it on my own. My hair has never looked better or felt healthier. what a blessing. I recommend her to anyone. Thank you Lori. -Connie K

I love Lori and every cut I've received from her!! Having curly hair, I've had my share of bad haircuts. I've even paid big bucks at salons that specialize in curly hair, and I've never left feeling like I do when I leave Lori. Not only does she give me a technically great haircut each and every time, but she also creates trendy, flattering cuts and gives me all kinds of styling tips. She has a way of giving me exactly what I want when I don't even know myself. I've never had so many compliments on my hair since I've started seeing Lori, and I recommend her to all of my friends!

My new Hair Extensions - SO worth it! I have thin hair and have been trying to grow it out (with Lori's help) for over a year now. My hair has improved and has gotten long, with the help of Lori, but now just wanted thicker hair (more of it)! Lori then told me about hair extensions which I knew ONLY what I've seen/heard about on TV. Let's face it, who doesnt have hair extensions in Hollywood? I knew they were pricey, but I also knew how gorgeous and thick your hair can be with them. I spoke with Lori and I have to admit, I was very scared to get them. I didnt know if they would be too much for me to take care of, would they be a total mess? AND...would I be wasting my money (gulp)? Lori assured me that I would absolutely love them, they wouldn't ruin my hair and I will have thick beautiful hair when all said and done. I finally got off the fence and had Lori put them in for me and they are absolutely the BEST decision I have made in a LONG time. They are very easy to take care of, they are SO soft and they make my hair FULL and slightly longer (I didnt want too much length). Everyone has commented on how beautiful my hair looks, and my style stays all day/night! Lori did such a wonderufl job! My extensions match my hair color perfectly! Lori is very patient, and has always made sure her work is absolutely perfect...and it really shows!!....and yes, the price is SO worth it! If you are thinking about getting hair extensions, definitely see Lori!

Lori did an amazing job cutting my hair! She not only cut my hair but explained to me step by step how to do the style at home! I left with a great cut/style and with the confidence that I can duplicate this look at home! I would definitely recommend her! Thanks, Lyndsey

My hair looks so healthy and beautiful, thanks to Lori! Not only did she give me a great cut but she explained to me how to style my hair on my own. Her instructions were clear, and I was able to re-create the style she did for me on my own at home, which says a lot not only about her talent as a stylist but as an educator as well. Lori creates a fun and relaxing atmosphere, and I always look forward to my next visit. I recommend her services to all. Thanks Lori!
