Stephanie B - This salon is fabulous! The salon is extremely warm and inviting, not at all old and drab, and not so ultra-modern that you feel surrounded by cold steel and hard edges.  I really Enjoyed both of my visits there and plan on making this my regular salon!  


Jason V. -  Chris is a magician - not to mention a wonderful human being - with hair color. My mom referred me to Chris and after a life of 300+ hair colors, Chris is as good as it gets. I can strongly recommend Chris. At Hair By Design you will find friendly customer service and a clean and inviting space. 


Laura L.- AMAZING! Go see Wayne. You will not be disappointed. He has been doing my hair for years and I get so many compliments.  He is able to do anything: modern colors and traditional requests.  The facility is also beautiful and comfortable .

Sara R.- Made an appointment here while I was in town for a wedding, which was very easy. My stylist was prompt, friendly and did a great job with my blowout. Shockingly turned my frizzy, curly hair into smooth hair with gorgeous curls at the end. The style was able to last through the next day for the wedding and then some!

  L.R. -      I have been keeping a secret for many years and today I will share it with you. Chris Ragland is the best hair stylist on the east coast. I was driving over an hour to get my hair cut and colored before I met Chris 20 years ago. I often have people ask me who is my hairstylist. A few weeks ago a stranger stopped me in a restaurant to exclaim "Your haircut is perfect" and again I was asked "Who does your hair?" Friends and family have switched to Chris Ragland for their haircuts and highlights and you likely will too. Just don't tell anyone else. We may not be able to get an appointment! 

  Cary B.      -  I found my stylist Chris Ragland after asking a co-worker "who does your hair?" That was about 10+ years ago. Easy scheduling, up front pricing, no surprises. Chris makes your appointment fun and relaxing. He always provides a little drink (tea, soda, water) and if you so desire, a little chocolate on occasion. He listens to what you want and offers suggestions, but never pushy. He currently also styles my college aged daughter's hair. We love him. So will you.

Kathy      -Just wanted to give a shout out to say Thanks! If I am not mistaken I think I have been going to you since 1992? You have been an awesome hairdresser, Through the 90’s perms, The early 2000,s short cut, and my current over 50yrs cut, lol! I would not go to anyone else!  Love you and your salon!  Thanks again!!



Robin L.       -If my calendar is right, Wayne Lee has been styling my hair for nearly 25 years.  The truth is, I'd be crazy to let anyone else touch it.  I don't think I've ever gone from one haircut to the next without a stranger stopping me to say how much she loved my hair. Really. Do the math.  That's a lot of compliments! Plus, the salon suits me perfectly. Low-Key, no hype, genuine friendliness, and an awesome haircut, year after year, after year, after year...
