“Great Salon, Great Staff. "

I have been to this salon many times within the past you walk in and you feel so welcome there! Everyone is so pleasant and helpful and really make your experience there awesome. Melinda has been highlighting my hair and there color system is amazing and my hair looks so good afterwards! I would definitely recommend trying this place out!”

– Laura L.

"Everyone is so kind and helpful, it’s a very welcoming salon!”

“Just left the salon today and I am very happy about my highlights I received once again! I got the oil-based highlights part of their Scruples blonding system. It is the perfect match and not brassy at all. I’ve been receiving these highlights from Melinda for the past 8 months every two months. The color really lasts and never turns brassy like everything I’ve used in the past. The price is unbeatable for these oil-based highlights and I always get my money’s worth. Melinda is very sweet and attentive and sure gives one heck of a massage while shampooing.

– Megan F.

“I’d give 5 stars."

Nancy and Amy were really nice and gave me really special treatment for a really good price. I didn’t get any color or special style, just a trim with a conditioning treatment (on special). Customer service and price are really important to me since all I usually want is a little off the ends. Nancy is a go-getter and wants the business to succeed by focusing on what people really want and being open to all people in Raleigh. The salon is easy to get to, it’s definitely worth a try if you’re looking for a place.”

“I love Sweet T Salon."

My husband and I both go to Nancy to get our haircut. We live in Durham, but make the trip down to Raleigh to Sweet T because Nancy does such a great job. I don’t think that I have ever had a better cut. I had been trying to grow my hair out for years and my hair really did not start growing until I started getting my haircut from Nancy. Plus, everyone always complemented my haircuts.

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much for your sweet review. We really appreciate it. We are so happy with how long and healthy your hair is now! Yay! Thank you for allowing us to serve your family. See you soon! xoxo

– Joetta M.

“Amazing Salon. Such a great salon!!"

Nancy and the rest of the staff are so friendly. I have very processed hair that used to be damaged but after having Nancy do my highlights it feels amazing. I used to get the Brazilian straightening treatment at other salons for 300+ dollars but I don’t need to do it any more thanks to the conditioning highlighting product they use at this salon. 

I would and do highly recommend this salon.”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much for your sweet review. We really appreciate it. We are so happy with how long and healthy your hair is now! Yay! Thank you for allowing us to serve your family. See you soon! xoxo

“Great place for a haircut. "

Was there last week & Rosa did exactly as I asked – it’s so nice when people listen & provide great customer service! A very nice & professional staff – definitely going back!

– Claire B.

“Great Team. "

I had a wonderful experience with Nancy, Tyler & Amy. My experience started out with a groupon fiasco but Nancy fixed everything. Nancy gave me excellent advice on highlighting my hair so that I had a natural red outcome. Then Nancy & Tyler worked together highlighting my hair and Amy gave me a styling cut. They were very generous with their time, advice and energy. When they became aware of a time crunch I was under, they all pitched in to finish me up as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend Sweet T Salon to anyone.

– Joyce W.

“They LISTENED to me and did a wonderful job. "

I got warm and considerate service from Nancy and Amy – they listened to me and consulted with me regarding both the color and the cut I wanted. Amy did my hair and checked with me throughout her work to be sure we were on the same page.

The end result is fantastic. I have beautiful blonde hair with no gray and plenty of depth to the color. And the cut is the best I’ve ever had – long layers – that Amy showed me how to style at home.

My last hair dresser always thought she knew best what I needed. Nancy and Amy worked WITH me to give me what I needed and WANTED (fabulous hair).Oh, and my husband and sons all go there, too!

– Carolyn D.

“Best Salon Ever!!!"

I had the most awesome experience ever. Felt like a “princess”. Nancy did an amazing job fixing “the mess” that was my hair. There are pictures on their FB site as proof. 🙂 So friendly, and aimed to please the client, From carrying purses to putting on jackets. Even offered food and beverages. I loved every moment. While getting hair done, I got a massage done by Wendy. I got “shellack’d lol. Awesome new product. Loving it so far. Thank you all so much for taking ten years off me. I will recommend you to everyone I know. My new FAV salon.

– Nineveh Z.

“I LOVE LOVE LOVE my hair!!!"

Love this salon and the staff!! The owner is amazing! I wanted to get layers in my hair and I had no idea how much I wanted to cut out, I just wanted something that looked good. Nancy (owner) knew exactly what I wanted and made my hair look gorgeous! I’ve gotten sooo many compliments. The prices are definitely reasonable for the high quality you are getting, the service is fast and impeccable, the appointments always on time. She is amazing and I commend her for all that she does, thank you! 🙂

– Ariel C.

“Awesome service! I love this place!"

I got right in at my appt time and the service was fast but really great. My cut and color look fab and I’ve gotten SO many compliments on my hair. Great service AND great hair? Def check this place out! 🙂

– Celebrity

“Great Haircuts & super friendly staff.

Amy has been cutting my hair for 3 years now and she is great. I was referred to her from a friend. She ask what you want when you sit in her chair and then proceeds to ‘do her magic’. The staff (esp. Nancy) is super nice and they want to make you happy, it shows. This is how a business should make you feel when you walk in door….they know customer service!!!

– Kris1181

“Awesome service and style."

Nancy and her crew are friendly, helpful and talented. Service was swift without being hurried and my hair never looked better! High style without high prices.




– Barrytone

“Check this place out!!"

I have found a great hair Salon with a friendly caring atmosphere and super service. The staff cares about you hair and YOU. Let’s help make them a success!

– MystkGrl3

“High end results without the high end price!"

I have tried numerous salons since moving here from Atlanta (Nov 2007). Time and time again, I was disappointed with my results. I don’t know why, but no one could ever give me the same color results I was used to getting in Atlanta. And not only was I not getting good color results, but I was paying almost double what I was paying at very reputable salon in Atlanta. Saying that I was extremely frustrated would be a gross understatement.

Then earler this year, a friend recommended that I try Sweet T Salon. For the first time since moving to Raleigh, I have found a salon and stylist that I love. My hair hasn’t been this healthy and beautiful since I lived in Atlanta. And ladies, Jordan is amazing with a blowdryer.

It’s really a great salon! It’s not a fancy-schmancy place, if that’s what you’re looking for. But if, like me, you value great stylists in a friendly, professional atmosphere, give them a try. You won’t regret it.

– working mom 18

“Great family salon!"

We just moved to the area, and I found a deal on amazon for Sweet T Salon, so I decided to try it. Everyone is very nice and friendly, and they welcome you as soon as you walk in the door. Jordan did my hair cut and color and changed me from brassy blonde to a beautiful, healthy-headed blonde with dimension! I liked Sweet T Salon so much I brought my husband in and also my 2 1/2 year old daughter for a hair cut! Please try it out! You won’t be disappointed!

– tsj911

“Customer Friendly!!!"

Love-Love-Love this Salon. I have been going to Amy for over 20 yrs. Her daughter Nancy has now moved back to the area and opened this Salon. They focus on excellent customer service and are very professional. Full service salon, coloring and cuts.

– lil redd

“They are the best."

This is a great place to get your hair done….. they are like family and very friendly to everybody that’s what is good customer service…. you gus ROCK.

“sweet T, everyone is super nice and the customer service is awesome!"

 I would def recommend anyone there!

“Perfect Southern Hospitality & World Class Style."

I have the best haircut I’ve ever had. The hospitality here is amazing — Nancy and the whole team of stylists make me proud of my Southern roots!!

– nmkd

“Fantastic Quality, Service, Atmosphere & Price."

I was so glad when Nancy moved back to town to open her own salon. Nancy is one of those stylists who I can give my criteria for a haircut and will point you to styles/colors that will meet your criteria and work for your hair type and face shape. I completely trust that I will come out of her salon looking my best and she is very honest with me about coming/fading trends, colors, and even other grooming items (like eyebrow waxing) to make sure I look my best.

Make no mistake–this is not one of those wine-bar salons–but it’s clean, the cut is just as good if not better, and the price most definitely is more agreeable than the wine-bar hair places.”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much for your feedback! We definitely keep our salon super clean. Perhaps one day we could be a “wine-bar” place with the same prices, but for now- we are happy serving Sweet Tea to our guests. The Sweet T Design team is up to date with the latest trends and products and can’t wait to see you again.

– Girija

“Great Salon!"

I was looking for a new place to go to, for a color and cut and I found Sweet T Salon from an Amazon deal offer. When I called for an appointment I got one for the same day but in the evening. Nancy, the owner was so friendly and welcoming, even on the phone. When I went there Melinda the colorist and Nancy explained what they planned to do and then Melinda very patiently colored my hair,making sure she covered every millimeter! My stylist was Rosa. Both of them did such a great job on my hair. It looks just awesome, can’t believe that this is my hair! This is a great salon, the staff is friendly, they seem to enjoy their job, they care about how your hair turns out.

I really liked Nancy too – a very pleasant, enthusiastic entrepreneur. I wish her and Sweet T salon success. I would recommend this salon to anyone who asks me for a recommendation!

– KeriSikes

“Sweet T Salon."

I have never really had a hair stylist I would stay with for any length of time. I went into Sweet T the 1st time about a year ago and meet Nancy. She is awesome! The salon is friendly, welcoming, and a great place for the entire family. I enjoy going in to get my hair cut, styled and colored because they are very big on service but not on price. A true find you will want to tell your family and friends about.

– Josh88

"My haircut was the best one I’d had in a while!”

Sweet T Salon. I was looking for a new place to cut my hair and my girlfriend recommended Sweet T. I got my haircut yesterday and it was fast and affordable and I got a great cut!

– zammaster

“Great place to get a haircut."

Sweet T Salon is a great place to go to get a cut and to talk to some real friendly people. Guys hair cuts are well priced and the quality is a lot better than other haircut places I’ve been to. Nancy, is super nice and energetic. They also throw awesome events from time to time so check out their website to see if any are upcoming.

– MarshallT

“Superb Salon. Great salon. Good people."

Melinda does my hair. It’s refreshing to get a good haircut from a girl who is beautiful on the outside and inside. As a matter fact, the whole staff seems very genuine and really cares about the clients walking in, professionally and personally. Most salons you are just another sale on the books. Not Sweet T!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much Marshall- we truly enjoy seeing you at Sweet T! We hire the best talent but we also hire the SWEETEST people too. 🙂 Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you for your next haircut. xo

“Best Salon in town!"

I moved to Raleigh in May of 2007 and was searching for a salon for over 3 years until I finally found Sweet T Salon. I have been going here since October of 2010. I met Amy outside of a shopping center and she gave me her card and told me about the salon. At that time, my son wasn’t quite 3 yet, and it was always difficult to give him a nice cut because he was always looking everywhere. Nancy and her team gave him the best cut I had seen. Nancy was awesome and incredibly patient with him. After seeing how great the team did with my son, I went in about a week later for the works (color, highlights, cut and style). I will not go any place else.”

I have been to other places in Raleigh, but I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair until going to Sweet T. Not only did the color, highlights and cut turn out fantastic, after leaving there my hair began looking healthy again, after being fried at other establishments. There is NO price tag you can put on that!

I absolutely love the energy and positive feel every time I walk in. They all know my son and I by our names and they show a genuine interest in us as people, not just another head of hair to deal with. I already to recommend them to everyone I know!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you! We love seeing you and your family. Thank you for bringing your son, Mom and Dad (who both live in NY). We definitely believe in healthy hair. Our coloring products condition the hair and we do not turn your hair brassy. It is a pleasure to serve you and your family :). xoxo

“True Southern Hospitality."

I’m a curly-haired girl and I’ve had some really unfortunate cuts in the past. I recently moved to Raleigh and needed a new stylist. I visited Sweet T on a recommendation and was not disappointed!

I was offered water or tea when I entered, and all of the stylists were very welcoming. My stylist had several ideas for my hair, and spent time discussing the ins and outs of each so I could make an informed decision. He did a fabulous job. I’ll definitely be returning.

The owners (Amy and Nancy) have styled the salon to be a boutique and sell jewelry made by local artists. When I stopped by to make my appointment they were hosting a party for a local “Thirty-one Gifts” sales consultant. It’s really great to find a business that is actually supporting the community. It definitely has that small town feel that I miss so much from home. And the prices are great – Definitely recommended!”

Sweet T’s Response: Wow! Thank you!! We love curly-haired girls :). It’s scary to find a great place that can work with curly hair and WE CAN! We are trying to save money to buy more teal furniture to showcase more work from our local vendors. As entrepreneurs in this economy, we truly love supporting other entrepreneurs. It’s wonderful that you feel at home in Sweet T. We definitely do :). We hope to be home away from home for a lot of people. Thank you again for stopping by Miss Curly Girl!

– Adrienne P

“Sweet T is upscale at affordable prices!"

Should be called Sweet Nancy! No, Really!!! She is amazing at her work of art! My hair has been every WRONG shade possible and Nancy was able to make my hair healthy again and beautiful! I haven’t had any services yet by Wendy but looking forward to it! Sweet T offers Southern hospitality at it’s best….they offer you Sweet Tea 🙂 I recommend Sweet T to anyone who wants to be treated like a celebrity and leave the salon a rock star! Come see what everyone in the triangle is raving about!!!!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you A! You are definitely a Rock Star. 🙂 We use top of the line products but don’t charge an arm and a leg. That’s why we can achieve healthy hair! Can’t wait to see you again. Xoxo

“Sweet T is the BEST Salon -They are 5 Star!"

I went to Sweet T not knowing what to expect and I just got home and am totally impressed with the quality of the hair cut, the color, and ended up getting a pedicure and manicure and waxing. Nancy, Wendy, Amy – they are wonderful. They are smart, talented, listened to what I said I wanted done and worked to earn my business. They are a 5 STAR salon. I will definitely go back and recommend them for women, men and children – they are GREAT!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!!! We are so excited that you spent some time with us this evening :). Enjoy your SWEET new look. xoxo

– mdgirl


Had my hair cut and styled yesterday by Melinda. My hair looked fabulous. Melinda was very professional and sweet. Sweet T Salon has a friendly and fun atmosphere. Will definitely frequent!!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you for coming to play with us! We are happy that you have happy hair, feet, and hands. 🙂 See you soon!

“Guys, you need to check Sweet T out."

“Sweet T. Finding a place to get a great haircut for a guy can be a huge pain. Most guys head to the old school hole in the wall with a candy cane spiral out front or the overpriced chains where someone different is there every other week.

Their staff is friendly, knowledgeable, up on the latest styles, always cheerful, and they actually take the time to know who you are and what you like. They get to know your name and you actually will see the same smiling faces every week.”

To top it all off, their prices are incredibly reasonable for a haircut. They do efficient quality work. So if you are on a tight schedule, no worries, they will get you in and out looking your best. All I can say is I”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you!!! As a guy it’s either barber shops or salons with mostly women clientele. We are happy that you have found a home for your hair where we do flattering clipper/scissor cuts just for the gentlemen!

“Love my hair."

My normal stylist at a different salon had a baby and isn’t back yet. I was nervous about going somewhere else. I took a chance. They were all so very nice when I came in and made me feel welcome. Offered sweet tea or water. My stylist gave me opinions and then options. My hair turned out awesome. It’s the best it’s looked in a long time.

Sweet T’s Response: Awww! We are so happy you are happy with your hair. 🙂

– mradonis

“Sweet T – “Where Everyone Knows Your Name”.

Sweet T is a great salon, from the atmosphere to the friendly staff. You always feel welcomed and are greeted with a smile. After getting my hair cut there, I brought back the whole family and everyone was happy with the service (even my four year old). I recommend Sweet T for people that want great service, and a relationship that will last as long as you have hair!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much for bringing you whole family :). xo

“Sweet T Salon – Best In Class."

I’ve been a client of Nancy and Amy for at least seven years and love the friendly and professional service. They take a sincere interest in their client relationships and routinely take service levels to well above what might be expected. They have recently remodeled and updated their branding and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Nancy is always thinking of new ways to enhance the service and I always look forward to my monthly visits to see what she might come up with next!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thank you so much. Stay tuned, we just had a meeting this morning with a vendor and there is more to come :). Gotta’ stay innovative.

– O. Pozo

“Sweet T is GREAT."

I have been going to Sweet T Salon for over 5 years so I recall when Amy was the owner and it was called Classy Cuts. While Classy Cuts was good, Amy’s daughter Nancy has taken the shop to new heights. She has renovated the interior, giving a clean new look, and has brought a new energy to a fine shop, the newly renamed Sweet T Salon.

I love going here because Nancy’s positive energy permeates the shop with a friendly atmosphere in both customer relations and staff involvement. While I am no beauty queen, Nancy is, and her expertise will help you look your best. Whether you are a traditionalist or into the latest trends, you will find a warm welcome and a great look at Sweet T.”

Sweet T’s Response: Well-said Orion! We love having you positive energy here too :). That’s right- all is welcomed and we will achieve any look you desire. xo

“I love Sweet T Salon!"

I had the best experience at Sweet T. I called yesterday and very easily got an appointment for the next day. I walked in and they knew who I was and what I was there for before I ever even told them my name. They offered me water or sweet tea and told me to make myself at home. Nancy and her mom, Amy, were fantastic. They talked to me the whole time and took the time to ask me what I wanted and instruct me on the best things to do for my hair. I didn’t feel rushed, they took the time to do my hair properly and were super friendly. I would recommend this place any time!”

Sweet T’s Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your sweet experience. Hair care is important! One of our company values is, “We strive to educate our clients and each other.” As a team, we are happy to collaborate for the best hair care you can have. 🙂

– KenPeace

“Sweet T – great place!"

A very professional, friendly staff! Love what they’ve done with the place since it re-opened in May, the wood flooring, etc. Just a nice, family friendly establishment with reasonable prices – one definitely feels @ home & welcome there!”

Sweet T’s Response: One of the best compliments an employee said was, “I feel like I am in my living room when coming to work!” We are happy that you feel right at home when you come to Sweet T Salon. It will be feel cozier as we find more second-hand pieces of furniture.

“Family Atmosphere."

I have been in Raleigh since ’02 trying to find the right salon to get my haircuts, I believe I finally found one. Sweet T Salon is very friendly. I usually walk in for my haircut. The girls are very nice, very sweet. Make sure you stop !!!!!”

Sweet T’s Response: Whahoo! Nine years and still going strong. We are so happy to be able to serve you and hope to do so for many more years. We hope that your visits keep getting sweeter. 🙂

“Pretty Awesome!"

I’ve been coming to Sweet T Salon since I was wearing smock dresses and I would never consider going anywhere else. The staff is super friendly and from the second I walk in the door I am treated like royalty. Once I tried to give myself a home hair color and it was a disaster! Sweet T fixed it right up for me even though it was quite an undertaking. I recommend Sweet T to all my friends and would to anyone. It’s the best!”

Sweet T’s Response: Our highlighting line can fix almost any hair “oops” :). We are happy to get you back to blond.

– meradeoleiros

“Love This Place!"

If you want an unpretentious, relaxed and friendly environment for your salon….THIS is the place for you. You are greeted with a wonderful staff. The prices are budget friendly. I have been coming to Sweet T (formerly Classy Cuts) since the winter of 2010 and I have been very happy with their services. I would recommend Sweet T Salon to anyone.”

Sweet T’s Response: We are so happy that you enjoy our relaxed and friendly environment :). Don’t forget that you can always enjoy a taste of sweet tea and take home any magazine we have.

– Ansky2009

“Friendly Atmosphere, Professional Results."

Upon entering Sweet T Salon, you are greeted with a big smile and a hello from any one of the stylists. The warm reception reminded me of going to a family reunion where you can just be yourself. As for the service, it was terrific. I’ve had my hair cut by five of the stylists and came away very satisfied every time! Great atmosphere, great price, great folks! Two thumbs up!”

Sweet T’s Response: Thanks for coming to see all (five) of us :). That’s right, all of our stylists are happy to provide you with the best service possible. lol – We feel like it’s like a family reunion every day at work. 🙂

“I went in with over processed, brassy bottle blonde hair and walked out gorgeous!"

My highlights and cut are exactly what I wanted. I explained to Nancy what I wanted and she took care of the rest. Everybody was very nice and chatty. It was the perfect salon experience. I have finally found my salon!

– H. Sharma

“Love my hair now!"

I’d been putting off a hair cut for months because I didn’t want to spend the money and end up disappointed, which had happened at a few other places around town. I decided to check this place out because it is very close to my apartment. As soon as I walked in I felt so welcomed and I loved their vibe, I decided to give it a shot. I am SO EXCITED about the results. Melinda did an awesome job, and I just love the welcoming attention from Nancy and everyone I met – not only do they do high-quality work for a very reasonable price, they make you feel like family and do everything they can to make you happy! I’ll be back, thank you!” Liked: Service, Value
