I've been through a string of stylists since my old stylist moved away, and just couldn't find anyone who could do blonde hair the way I wanted it done. A friend suggested that I go to Kandace Thompson over at Lux and I'm so happy I did! Not only did she give me awesome color, but a great cut as well. The atmosphere at this place is laid back but professional, and no one was stuck up or rude, which is hard to come across in BR. In fact, the staff I spoke with all seemed very knowledgable of their products and color. I'm so happy to have found my new salon! If you are looking for awesome color and a great cut, go to Lux!
It's funny how the review I posted and several other negative reviews have disappeared from this and other review websites. You can have them removed but you can't change the salons reputation. I talked to a former employee who said that the employees are the ones leaving the positive comments and they are fighting to have the negative ones removed. Shame on Yellow Pages if they remove any more of the reviews. People come to these sites to find out the TRUTH about a business good and bad. Those of us who had our hair ruined and treated unprofessionally will keep posting to warn others just as this was intended to.
This place is amazing! I am new to Baton Rouge and have been unhappy with the first two salons I tried. they came highly recommended but were not at all professional. but Lux impressed me from start to finish. From booking my appointment, to walking out with my new look, I was so happy! This salon was hopping, people everywhere and everyone seemed so pleased to be there. staff included!! Everyone was friendly and professional and you could tell very well educated. To top it all off my stylist(Greg) called me few days later to make sure I was happy with my hair. That has never happened before and I have been to a lot of different salons in almost every major city. My color has never looked so good. Can't wait to go back!!

I usually do not like to write negative reviews but felt a need to write this one. Nathan did high/low lites on my hair and convinced me that I needed a deep conditioner treatment without telling me the cost of the conditioner. I should have asked so this was my fault. When I checked out, I paid almost $250 for color, cut, and conditioner!!!! Unbelievable especially since I have short hair!!!! Unfortunately, that is not the worst. The next day, while brushing my hair, I noticed pieces of hair falling into the sink. The areas where bleach had been applied were breaking off!!! Within a week, what had not broken off was beginning to look fried. I had so much broken/fried hair that I had to get 3 inches cut off! This, however, didn't help with the ""halo"" of broken hairs I had at the top of my head. I will NEVER recommend this salon to anyone ... in fact, I will warn them to stay away!

I had an appointment with Nathan (owner) he pawned me off on one of the ""assistants"" the whole time but I still payed his prices. He complained about other stylists in HIS salon. Then I overheard him yelling at a few of his employees from the back room. It was so awkward. My hair is ok (not great) and the service was awful. Lux had a great reputation but the more I talk around B.R. Nathan has a bad rap.

Ms Ginger fixed something that 4 stylists and myself only made worse before. She listened to me whine about all the drama I've put my hair through. She ask me what i wanted and didn't want. She worked her expertise and gave me the hairstyle i needed. It's perfect.
