After moving to Raleigh in 2018, finding a hair stylist who could truly cut curls proved a challenge. I actually had my hair cut when I visited back home, but that was only 1 or 2x a year. Frustrated, I happened across the Salon Loft page, and looked for a stylist available the upcoming weekend. I then read their bios, and determined Raven could probably give my hair a lift. Not gonna lie - my anxiety was a bit high going in, but her personality and consultation instantly calmed my fears. As she began, I realized she did, in fact, know how to cut curls.. Dry! (or spritzed, not completely wet, as many stylists do.) With circular motion here, a squoosh there, and lots of patience, Raven turned my plain hair into a wonderland of curls and waves! Absolutely magical! I have never been taught how to properly wash and style my hair.. Until now. Raven truly cares about her clients succeeding when they go home and want to repeat the salon style. She has amazing skills, and I look forward to being in her chair again and again!

I have been going to Raven for 3 1/2 years now! I followed her from Raleigh to Charlotte! She does amazing men's cuts, as well as fantastic job with all her clients. My wife and I both travel to have her do our hair! She is absolutely amazing at her craft!

I have very long, dense curly hair that is generally unmanageable to even the most experienced stylists. Raven was awesome and my hair turned out better than expected or than I'd hoped. She was very patient, took great care in protecting the integrity of my hair and rinsing chemicals in a timely manner. For once, I didn't feel the stylist was overwhelmed by my hair. Her space was warm, inviting, and nicely decorated. I'd recommend Raven for any specialty color service. I will be booking my next curly hair cut with her to see if we are a good fit in cutting. I have all the faith in her abilities! Great experience!

I have lived in Charlotte area for over 19 years and tried 5 different hair stylists with most of disappointing results and hundreds of dollars spent on color and hairstyles that were less than satisfactory. I found out about Raven in one of Facebook pages and decided to give her a try. She’s a joy to work with, she listened to my concerns. Space she’s in is clean and neat and she truly knows her craft. I will definitely go back to see Raven for my hair needs in recent future.

I got my hair done by her almost 2 weeks ago, and I gotta say. This hair cut is still going strong and amazing. I don't think I've had a hair cut that's looked this good almost 2 weeks out. She is super friendly and such a gem. I highly recommend.

I am older and have fine hair that is also thinning. Raven did the most amazing cut to give my hair beautiful volumn that I am in love with!!! Not to mention, she hid my "platinum" roots nicely :) She is a total professional in her field and reasonably priced. I look forward to my next appointment.

Raven is amazing at what she does and is super kind. I traveled almost an hour one way just to receive her services, and recommend her to my friends and family.

Completely obsessed with my new hair cut! I’ve never had anyone cut my curly hair as good as Raven did. I would recommend her to anyone! Plus she’s super sweet!
