People Are Talking About Salon Space...

“After living in New York for five years and experimenting with a variety of stylists, I never found the right place. And within just a few weeks of moving to New Haven, I stumbled into Salon Space and I couldn’t be happier. Kate (the owner) is an incredibly talented stylist who really listens to her customers and wants to make sure she gives them the perfect cut.
She ingeniously offers all kinds of workshops on the newest trends, and runs specials like “Go Pink for Cancer” to raise awareness and funds for important causes. I love her style and have been talking incessantly about my new find.
Go to Salon Space. It’s worth the drive and you will not be disappointed.” – Lindsay S., Brooklyn, NY
“As a not so new resident to New Haven (almost 3 years now)… I still found myself waiting until a trip back home to get a hair cut. Sad & even laugh worthy I know… still, everyone has their things & a salon / quality hair stylist is one of mine.
I ventured out a bit to North Haven & found the haircut & quality I have been searching for since my relocation to the Nutmeg state. Salon space is a newer salon that offers all you would expect & more. Not only did I get the best haircut I’ve had in years from the owner/stylist named Kate (who I may add made my experience) BUT the salon doubles as a photography studio! For special events or even just for fun, there could be no better pairing.
My experiences here have been personal. The services, exceptional quality & priced just right.  I have found my new spot & recommend it to anyone male or female, looking for the same.” - Nicolette H., West Hartford, CT
“I found Kate years ago so when she open Salon Space, I was ecstatic! She’s so smart and patient and truly an artist!  I’ve gone in and told her to do whatever she wants, always leaving with a BIG GRIN on my face, and I’ve gone in with certain requests and she always listens and does magic.
All my friends whom I recommended to go to Salon Space have become regulars and of course thanked me.
This place is a must go, tell them Ani sent ya!” - Ani G., New Haven, CT
“I just moved to CT and it is always a challenge to find someone new to do your hair- now that I have found Salon Space I can officially check that off of my to-do list.  The entire staff seems to do good work but I vote that you book with Kate, she is worth the wait!” – Denise R., New Haven, CT
