TRU Hair Salon


My girlfriend and I came in to this salon. Do not waste your time or money and specifically DO NOT USE SAMMIE. She does not know how to do color. She did my girlfriends color and did a horrible job. Sammie talked badly about other stylist. Acted sweet but doesn’t have a clue about color and didn’t process the color long enough. Then at check out, the price was higher than was what was quoted over the phone. Overpriced. Sammie is totally clueless.
Thanks Lilli!!
Katlyn is awesome! She did a Devacut and I feel great! If you have curly hair Katlyn is the one to see. She talked to me about what I wanted and what would work with my type of hair. As she was going through the process she explained what she was doing and why. I left knowing I could style my hair the way she showed me. Lily, Katlyns assistant was also great and so friendly and informative.
Hello, would you be able to hair and makeup for a Prom this Saturday? If so, how much would you charge? Thank you
This salon is a JOKE!! It is incredibly unorganized and the management is terrible. I made an appointment for hair and makeup for my wedding day. I wanted to make sure that I looked my best because I have no talent when it comes to hair and makeup. I called the morning of to confirm my appointment and they gave me pointers for my hair and face. When I showed up I worked with Thea (who is great and did an amazing job on my hair) but when it came time to do my make up they suddenly had no record of my makeup appointment. All of the stylists were booked and I was told that I was out of luck. When I talked to management I was told to just apply some mascara and run down the aisle. They gave me a 15% discount on my hair and told me to recommend the salon to my friends. Since I had made an appointment to get my make up done I had nothing with me and had to go to Walgreens and try to find something to put on before my wedding. DO NOT GO TO THIS SALON!!!!!

Are you ready to embrace a modern and updated version of that coveted blonde look?

Let's dive into why "lived-in" blonding is the ultimate choice for today's trendsetters. ✨👱‍♀️

1️⃣ Effortless Elegance: Lived-in blonding embraces the natural flow and movement of your hair, giving you a chic and effortlessly beautiful style. No more high-maintenance or over-processed hair! With lived-in blonding, you'll rock a sun-kissed, lived-in look that exudes sophistication and grace. It's a low-maintenance option that allows you to spend less time fussing over your hair and more time enjoying life's adventures.

2️⃣ Seamless Blend: Say goodbye to harsh lines! Lived-in blonding focuses on creating a soft and natural transition between shades, giving your hair a multi-dimensional and sunlit effect. Whether you opt for babylights, balayage, or subtle highlights, lived-in blonding ensures a harmonious blend that looks like it's been kissed by the sun. The result? A radiant and youthful glow that complements your features flawlessly.

3️⃣ Versatile and Long-Lasting: Lived-in blonding offers versatility like no other. From beachy waves to sleek updos, this modern technique enhances any hairstyle with its subtle depth and dimension. Plus, the low maintenance nature of lived-in blonding means your color will gracefully grow out, creating a lived-in effect that continues to look stunning as time goes on. It's a long-lasting option that allows you to enjoy beautiful, blonde locks without constant touch-ups.

🌿 Did you know that what we put on our bodies matters just as much as what we put in them? 🤔 That's why I'm here to shed some light on the importance of using low-tox products in our daily routines. 🌱💚

🌍 Environmental Impact: By opting for low-tox alternatives, we reduce our contribution to harmful chemicals seeping into our ecosystems. It's a small step with a big impact! 🌿🌎

🌿 Personal Well-being: Low-tox products minimize our exposure to potentially harmful substances, promoting better health and overall well-being. It's all about self-care from the outside in! 💆‍♀️💚

🐰 Cruelty-Free Choices: Many low-tox brands also prioritize ethical practices, ensuring their products are not tested on animals. Let's show love to our furry friends too! 🐇❤️

So, let's embrace the power of low-tox and make informed choices that align with our values. Together, we can create a healthier and more sustainable future! 🌿💪✨

👀 Would you believe us if we told you this hair is all hers??

Well it is!🤍

Looking to grow your hair long? Try these tips:

🍴Eat a balanced diet: A healthy diet can help promote hair growth. Make sure to eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein, which are essential for healthy hair growth.

😇 Take good care of your hair: Avoid using harsh chemicals or high heat on your hair, as they can cause damage and breakage. Be gentle when brushing or combing your hair, and avoid tight hairstyles that pull on your hair.

🪴 Use hair care products that promote hair growth: Look for hair care products that contain ingredients like biotin, vitamin E, and keratin, which can help promote healthy hair growth

💆‍♂️Massage your scalp: Massaging your scalp can help stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, which can promote hair growth. You can use your fingers to massage your scalp for a few minutes every day.

✂️ Get regular trims: While it may seem counterintuitive, getting regular trims can actually help your hair grow longer. Trimming your hair can prevent split ends and breakage, which can make your hair look and feel healthier. Aim to get a trim every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair healthy and strong.

Three easy ways to encourage shine in your hair:

🌿 Use a hair mask: Applying a hair mask once a week can deeply nourish your hair, making it soft and shiny

💦 Rinse with cool water: After shampooing and conditioning your hair, rinse it with cool water. This can help to seal the cuticles of your hair, making it smoother and shinier. Avoid using hot water, as it can strip your hair of its natural oils and leave it looking dull.

💎 Use a serum or oil: Applying a hair serum or oil to the ends of your hair can help to tame frizz and add shine. Apply a small amount to the ends of your hair and work it through with your fingers. Be careful not to apply too much, as this can make your hair look greasy.

Need recommendations for product? Head in for a consultation and let one of our stylists help you choose the best ones for your hair type.


Meeting a new client can be just as nerve-wracking for us stylists as it is for you! 😬💇🏻‍♀️

But seeing the smile on your face when we help you achieve your hair goals makes it all worth it.

We love building lasting relationships with our clients and making you feel comfortable in our chair.

Frustrated with how fast your beautiful baby blonde toner is getting brassy? Try these tips from our Try stylists:

🧽 Don't Shampoo for 48-72 hours after a color or toner service 

It takes 72 hours for the cuticle of the hair to close after a color service. Let it close down to seal the color molecules before washing.

🔥 Use lukewarm water when you shampoo 

Hot water will fade color faster and freezing cold water isn't necessary. Lukewarm is just right 

🚿Consider getting a shower filter for your shower head

Unfortunately our water is full of minerals and these minerals can damage and discolor your hair. 😵‍💫

🌿 Use the professional products your stylist recommends

When you've left the salon after spending money on a beautiful color or highlight why wash all that down the shower drain by messing with cruddy products?

⛱️ Wear a cute hat when you are out in the sun or use UV hair protectant products

If you've seen the fade on patio furniture and other outdoor items it shouldn't surprise you that UV will also fade your hair color.

🌴 With a large salon like we are we get a ton of new guests and before we meet you we want to make sure you have a fabulous experience. Knowing these few things will help make sure your time with us is everything you want and more.

1. Ever heard that dirty hair is better? 🧼 It's a lie. Dirty hair makes it harder for the color and lightener to work at their full potential.

2. Plan your budget knowing you will want new shampoo/conditioner and maybe more! 💦 (Are you gonna drop a few hundred dollars on a new color to wash it down the shower drain???)

3. Not all goal photos can be achieved in one session. 🗓️ Plan to book with the same stylist before you leave so you can be on the color journey to your dream hair together.

4. Bring photos of what you do like (and what you don't like!) They aren't to copy- but more to give you a point of reference to discuss tones and placement. 📷

5. We know weird stuff happens. Traffic sucked, you got out of work late or... the coffee line was waaaaay longer than you thought it would be. We get it and we still want to see you! 📞 Just know you will probably not receive the entire service you originally booked. ... Think instead of a partial highlight you're getting a mini. Sorry :( we just hate to run late for our next guest and have to consider everyone.

✨We hope these tips help you out before your next service! Share with a friend who didn't know these things!✨

⭐ Another tip for gals going for a brighter blonde look: Get lowlights too.

Lowlights help highlights appear brighter!

If your color has been over highlighted it's time to ask for a subtle lowlight at your next appointment ✨

Have you ever ...

sunburned your hair? ☀️

Did you know UV rays will damage your beautiful strands and strip that gorgeous tone and blend your stylist gave you?

If you think having a fashion color is easy let me give you a quick rundown on the process to go from old hair color (or virgin hair) to this magic 🪄

Lightener is required. Even if you are blond already you're going to need a lightening service. Once your stylist gets your hair light enough you'll need a blowdry. Then on dry lightened hair your stylist is free to get creative with fashion color.

This is why fashion color services are charged per hour. There is a lot that goes into this type of custom work.

Whether it's a hidden panel or the full head you're dreaming of..
you'll definitely want to book a consultation before booking this type of service!

Your home maintenance is also a huge part of this service. You'll be a professional shampoo and care routine that Includes low heat to help your color last.

🖤 Have you ever gone brunette to blonde or vise-versa? This transformation by is so gorgeous right?!

We love a good makeover! In fact we are almost done with a huge makeover inside TRU formerly JGregory

We will always value to opportunity given to us to transform and reform this space but there is nothing like a fresh look and vibe 🥂 in hair and business


💥 Check out our 3 favorite ways to keep your hair soft and silky:

1. Grab a new hairbrush. Boar bristle brushes are designed to distribute natural oils throughout your hair delivering shine and softness. 🌵You can even buy the hubby one with a little oil to soften his beard

2 . EASY on the heat. You don't even cook your dinner at THAT temperature ☠️

3. Condition your hair - Conditioner can help smooth and de-frizz the hair. Moisture matters too, but try a deep conditioner in salon, if your go-to isn't cutting it for your frizzy mane. 💦

What is the maintenance like for hand-tied extensions?

It's low! Extensions actually make most routines EASIER! 🤯

The hair holds curl longer so u spend less time styling each day. 🤩

There is more hair to distribute your natural oils so you can wash and dry less often too! 💪

You just need the right shampoo/conditioner/leave-in and serum to help the hair last a full 9 months.

You do have to brush 2x a day, can't go to bed with it wet, and braid or bun it at night to avoid matting.

That's basically it! We will see u back in the salon for move ups on traditional hand tied every 6-9 weeks for traditional hand-tied methods

🔥 Have you peeped the updated menu of services?

Have you ever stood at the front desk to check out and thought "how the heck did my highlight go from $150-$200?" ☠️

I'll tell ya how!

maybe at your last salon when you got to checkout you were told the toner was extra and the bondbuilders added into your bowl of lightener was also extra, Surprise!

GIRL I'VE BEEN THERE TOO!!! You're like "wait what?!"

Or alternatively if your stylist asks "do you want to preserve the integrity of your hair by adding in bondbuilders and also ensure the highlight color is perfect by adding a toner to your service"? ... Like a dear in headlights you reply... "Well is my hair that bad that it needs a bond builder? What even is that... " And maybe you say "no thanks."

Well, we don't believe hair health and the perfect color tone are optional. 🤍 Because if this we now included these 2 necessities into every lightning service. So when you hop onto to book, what you see is what you get!

We have multi level pricing for our stylists so be sure to check them each out and book what works best for you 🍾
