5 stars = 'yay! I'm a fan'... I can't say, 'as good as it gets' only because I haven't had color done yet... but I am positive that the color would be as good as the cut. :) I love this place. I found it by accident by googling around my neighborhood looking for a typical salon. I clicked on White the art of hair off of google map just out of pure curiosity. I mean, I always wanted to get my hair done at a high quality place but never wanted to spend the money. So I visited their website and just browsed around. I thought for SURE that 1. they were ridiculously expensive and 2. there was no way they would allow for a walk-in without an appointment. I was SO WRONG. They were friendly and squeezed me in that day in place of a cancellation, PLUS the prices are awesome. Krystal, my new stylist, is great. I have now been to her twice and my third appointment has been scheduled. She is smart, informative and funny too! My hair is long, and thick. It takes her a little over an hour for a wash, cut and full blow out but she is always smiling and makes me feel super comfortable. Who knew getting a fresh do' could be so therapeutic? lol PS - if you feel like hugging your stylist after they are finished with you, that's probably an indication that they did an awesome job. Thanks Krystal

Great Cut & Honest Feedback In One Place I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised, if not thrilled, with the service and cut that I received. \r

When our stylist uttered the words that every woman hopes to hear from a scissors-wielding stylist ("I like your length"), we instantly fell in love. She explained that she wanted us to feel good about how we look (now that's a concept) yet still be adventurous. She gave us a full, sexy set of bangs before transforming our shapeless hair with a few face-framing pieces. The cut showed off a set of cheekbones we never knew we had. Best of all, she did it all in under a half hour. But at only $30, you'd better book now. We have a feeling space in her appointment book is going to be pretty hard to come by.

I was at my wits end with my hair back in April. I went in on a whim ready to chop it all off. I met with Danita who introduced me to hair extensions. OMG i feel like a new women! Its the best money I ever spent! I go about every 4 weeks to get them taken out and put back in, I don't mind. I never was the kind of girl who really cared to much about my hair, i would go about 2 times year to a friend who did hair. So going to a nice salon is a new fun experience for me. Everyone is so nice and friendly, And Danita is Amazing with color as well! I'm hooked.

We found this salon early in 2006 and were impressed with the quality of hair care and service. I was looking for an upscale salon for myself and bridal party for my October 2006 wedding. After talking with the owner and being won over by her claim to attention to detail and service for the bridal party on the wedding day we quickly booked them, specifically for a certain hair stylist. A few months later when my sister was in for a hair cut we were casually informed that our specific hair stylist was on a leave of absence and they had no specific date for her return. They assured us that their new stylist was excellent - but the hair cut and service from her turned out not be up to par of the other. In addition, my mother did not like her hair cut from the same girl and when she talked to the salon about it the owner told my mother it was her own fault for not allowing the stylist to do what she thought was best. Long story short, when I expressed concern about not having the stylist we had originally booked our appointment with and asked for my deposit back the owner suddenly turned not so friendly. In the end I stayed with this salon because it wasn't worth the fight. We didn't have the salon to ourselves the morning of the wedding as originally promised, the drinks, refreshments and relaxing music that were part of their wedding party pampering were not provided and the previous interactions with the salon added tension to the whole experience - the exact opposite of how a bride wants to start out her wedding day. We had to have a friend re-do two of the hair styles because they were not satisfactory and we felt we couldn't "express" our dissatisfaction due to the tension. If you are looking to have a long term relationship with friendly service and fulfilled promises choose another salon. They are full of promises and service to pull you in but it doesn't last if you have any disagreement with them.

I have extremely thin/fine hair. To make matters worse it is slightly curly. I have received FAR more terrible haircuts then good. I read the reviews and decided to give Danita a try. I am VERY GLAD I did!! I am very pleased with the haircut she gave me. One of the best haircuts I have ever received. My hair is easy to style and looks good. She took the time to look at the pictures I had brought and was honest about what she could/could not do. I am disabled and do not go out a lot and get nervous in new places very easily. Danita was really nice and helped me to relax. The price was very reasonable and they did not try to "force" me to buy a bunch of products, instead they just helped me pick out what I had already decided I wanted. The salon is very nice, but not snooty, I am generally shy and I felt very comfortable there. I highly recommend this salon to someone searching for a new hair dresser. I had a very good experience there.

I have always been very choosy when it comes to hair care and don??t just walk-in to any random hair salon unless I've done my research and read through reviews/testimonials about the place. And this salon I could definitely say is worth going to because Danita??s team of experts will really take care of your hair.

I had my hair straightened and colored and I am beyond satisfied with the result. It??s been 4months now and my hair still straight and smooth. And today I'm coming back to get a haircut and color. So to anyone who's new to the area, like me who's very skeptical about where to go, you??ll never regret trying out Danita??s salon - the Best in Indy!

Just had another fabulous experience at White the Art of Hair... and had to share!

I'm a "regular" and look forward to each month's appointment because I know that when I walk out, I'll feel great about my hair, both how it looks and how healthy it's become since Danita has taken care of it.

Danita has taken her profession to another level of expertise with the way she does Hair Dreams hair extensions, color application, and cut. And, I get all of these :-)

But what makes it special is that at each appointment, even though I've been her client for years, she always takes the time to ask what's working, what's not working, if I would like to see anything different... and then she makes it happen.

There seem to be so few services these days that deliver what they say they will. Danita, thank you for always making "getting my hair done" an experience that I look forward to!

See you next month..

Fantastic from start to finish! Danita did a quick assessment of my hair and described, step-by-step, what she had in mind. I gave her free reign to cut my hair as she pleased. She kept with a more conservative cut, only trimming a few inches, and fixing my layers, but it made a huge difference! Also, my color was to die for!
They were very friendly and professional. I was constantly offered something to drink or a magazine to read.
While I was there I saw several men get their haircut and most seemed like regulars... which I'm inferring means that they love getting their hair cut there as well.
With out a doubt, best Salon in town. Run, don't walk to this place!!

Over The Moon.........

I must let my secret out of the bag. I am originally from Los Angeles Ca. and I have been to a variety of different salons. White The Art of Hair, is the only place to go for hair. Danita White is an artist who takes her profession very seriously, (while having fun doing it). She is an expert colorist who uses top salon products while executing her highly skilled techniques. My very first experience with her was when she corrected a color mishap made by another stylist/salon here in Indy. She saved me and gave me a spectacular result.

Her styling/cutting techniques could easily be competitive against any top stylist in the country. After she cuts my hair she then texturizes it into a symphony of perfect, (so perfect I don't even have to wash it in the morning if I don't have time - hello!!!!). If you can't get an appointment with Danita she has an incredible staff who are equally as professional and skilled. I know they also offer top quality extension services, (I have not branched into that hair arena, but I have witnessed it being preformed). Also, the Kerastase product line that she uses on your hair will have you at hello! You can purchase them there as well, and thank goodness. I always make sure I have my Kerastase Slim which is a key product in the humid weather.

Beyond anything hair, (and all the other services and products the salon offers), the salon itself is a very relaxing environment. I am greeted each visit and offered a variety of beverages. I always look forward to going through the magazines, and catching up on some "me" time, (corny but true). There is also an area with a tall table and comfy chairs so customers can get work do on their laptops.

If you are looking for a new stylist, (which is often harder to find than a new gynecologist), or wanting something new with your color, White The Art of Hair is the only place to go. You won't be disappointed.

I started going to Lush back in 2006 when there was a totally different panel of stylists. I was excited about having an appointment with Danita, and would have loved her to cut my hair, but as soon as I showed up for my appointment and sat down, she asked me what I wanted and when I told her, she pawned me off onto another stylist because she said she was "better" at the haircut that I requested. I felt uncomfortable in the salon from the beginning, the atmosphere was not friendly. Fast forward a couple of visits, I thought I was paying way too much for haircolor when it wouldn't last more than a couple of weeks before beginning to fade (and after purchasing their overpriced hair products to supposedly help extend the hair color). Then one of my favorite stylists decided to leave, followed by many other stylists at this establishment. Then I heard the horror stories of how the owner treated the stylists that needed to leave, so I decided to leave as well. I'm sure they do a great job for the people who get extensions and the other higher-priced services, but for hair color and cuts there are MUCH better establishments in Indianapolis and surroundings areas that won't make you feel uncomfortable or treat their stylists unethically. Wondering why the name changed from LUSH to WHITE...reputation issues perhaps?

I feel really guilty that I haven't gotten my act together to get this review posted sooner, because Danita White isn??t just an amazing professional hair stylist and colorist, she??s also proven to be a good friend to all those who are lucky enough to experience her.. I found her through CitySearch a couple of years ago and even now that I??ve relocated to Chicago, I won??t ever let anyone else touch my hair ?? Danita??s that brilliant, especially for dishwater blondes like me!
If you haven't already heard through the grapevine she does THE BEST work creating multi-dimensional, long-lasting and natural-looking blonde highlights in all Indy. (I think she works privately with a roster of celebrities, but she??s pretty cagey about that.) In the decade I??ve been in Indiana, I??ve tried out pretty much every big-name hair stylist imaginable searching to recreate the healthy, natural-looking blonde of my youth from the bleach-out, sun/salt/chlorine damaged locks my active lifestyle created. I??ve tried pretty much every major salon but, I never returned to the same place twice because I never got personal attention, I always paid way too much, and I always left with the same, generic blonde ??Do? you seem to see on every soccer mom and street corner. So, to say I was a little disillusioned by the time I read Danita's reviews on CitySearch and made an appointment is an understatement. But, I was SO pleasantly surprised.
First, she spends A LOT of time with each of her clients. I think my appointments tend run about 2 hours with no overlap in appointments and no extra fee for the time (as I??ve experienced elsewhere). She??s never once been late or kept me waiting, or taken calls during our appointments, and I??ve never ever felt rushed. She also never ever tries to sell you product, which is a rare treat these days!
Second, she is a color specialist. At your first appointment, she'll do an assessment of the quality of your hair and what sort of cut/color you??re looking for and will offer you advice about how to make that work with the shape of your face/features and your individual coloring/complexion. (She actually takes notes, too!) Then, she'll offer you advice about what color or combination of colors will work best with your unique skin and eye coloration. (She typically weaves in 2-3 different color highlights into my hair, alternating every other appointment between highlights and lowlights.)
The result, for me, is that my hair looks healthier than it has in years (despite the damage I inflict upon it!), and I finally have my youthful blonde back. Danita??s done such a tremendous job masking my dishwater blonde/brown locks that I keep receiving compliments on the cut/color ?? even weeks after my appointments when I think the roots are starting to show. In fact, she does SUCH a tremendous job with my color and cut, that I don??t even really have to come in to see her for touch ups that often ?? maybe once every 2 months, since the highlights grow out so naturally. (That??s bad for her, but good for my pocketbook!)
Lastly, she is just a really decent human being and a whole lot of fun to talk to during the appointments. You can tell that she has good relationships with everybody at Lush. Also, unlike a lot of hair stylists out there (and again, I think I??ve seen a lot of the best Indy has to offer!), she seems to really take pride in his profession and in getting to know her clients and helping them be their best selves. She and the entire team at have created such a welcoming, ??family? environment, that I look forward to the commute there and won't be seeing anyone else anytime soon.
Thank you, Danita!

In fact, she does SUCH a tremendous job with my color and cut, that I don??t even really have to come in to see her for touch ups that often ?? maybe once every 2 months, since the highlights grow out so naturally. (That??s bad for her, but good for my pocketbook!)
Lastly, she is just a really decent human being and a whole lot of fun to talk to during the appointments. You can tell that she has good relationships with everybody at Lush. Also, unlike a lot of hair stylists out there (and again, I think I??ve seen a lot of the best Indy has to offer!), she seems to really take pride in his profession and in getting to know her clients and helping them be their best selves. She and the entire team at have created such a welcoming, ??family? environment, that I look forward to the commute there and won't be seeing anyone else anytime soon.
Thank you, Danita!

I have been to Paris, Italy, London, and a few other European countries; I also have been wearing extensions from around the world for 4 years. Until this year, while in the Colts owner Jim Esays suite at the new stadium; I could always tell when another woman was wearing extensions!
I saw this blond model being photographed for a national magazine and I thought to myself "damn her for that gorgeous hair, and here I am paying $1,500 for mine."
Later that evening I saw her again, and this time I had to ask "What do you do to your hair?" She replied "Honey, I have Hair extensions." I gasped and out of shock and disbelief!!!
I could NOT tell even while touching her hair! Like a crazy woman, I flipped my hair back and showed her my "Finger rows" as we laughed through it. She was Miss Indiana USA and gave me a card for her stylist Danita White.

The next day, at the office I goggled "Miss Indiana USA" and much to my surprise on her website was a link to White The Art of Hair, and on top of that she was a client!

So I google searched Danita and matter of fact you can google almost anything to do with salon, beauty, hair extensions, etc. And Danita is there!!!!
So I set up my consultation and went, 8 hours later I was a flawless, beautiful, long, thick haired, very content woman! The magic I had encountered that day, transformed not only my hair, but in many ways my life. Nobody I meet knows I have hair extensions, except me....
There is one thing I want to say to ANYONE thinking of or is already doing extensions; Danita is like a Leonardo Da Vinci of color and extensions! Perfection is priceless!
p.s. she wont tell you but she does all the top movers and shakers hair in this town so keep your eyes peeled for a celebrity sightings while at the salon.

I checked out White Salon after a couple of friends recommended it, and am very glad I did. Danita is just amazing with colors, and although I just went in for a single process, she actually threw in a few highlights on the top of the head where my highlights had grown out cause it had been 3 months since I got them done. And all this at no extra cost! The staff is not only very knowledgeable, but they take their time with you, and really make you feel special in the process :) Would totally recommend them if anyone's looking to get highlights or any sort of color correction done! I am going back again in 4 weeks :)

Danita is mean, and obviously by reading her reviews, the real clients have it right, this salon should be avoided at all cost. She charged us $200 for a postponement of our appt even though I had a car accident the night before and told her that on the message I left 7:00 that morning. She may get our $200 but we will NEVER use WHITE again and will pass the word so no one EVER makes the same mistake!!! She was combative, confrontational, unprofessional, didn't give a darn that we had been in an accident, didn't care that we had planned to reschedule. All she wanted was her $200 cancellation fee!! How low can you go? Danita and her salon obviously can crawl at the bottom of the barrel and be very comfortable! Enjoy your $200 Danita you are a bad business person, shame on you

I have seen Lauren Melvin for the last 4 years both here in Indy and at Michael Canele Salon in Beverly Hills and totally get why she wins awards for her work - the compliments I receive on my color and my cut are always so nice to hear - she knows what she is doing, loves what she does, cares about me and how I feel about the outcome and always delivers. I would be afraid to leave her and try someone new - I rely on her so much for consistently meeting my expectations. I wouldn't dream of leaving her for a different stylist. Plus she's just a warm, caring, vivacious, funny person who makes my experience positive every time. I saw the review from the person who did not have a good experience and it's too bad - this way of expressing dissatisfaction is unfortunate in that it in no way reflects how much Lauren really does care. She rocks. Love her. Wouldn't trust my hair to anyone else.

As a recent transplant to Indy I was in need of somewhere to get my hair permanently straightened - it was time to touch up the Japanese hair straightening done to my unruly mess and I could not find hardly anywhere to do it. The few salons I talked to were rude or snooty but the staff at White the art of hair were very friendly on the phone. I spent about four hours with Lauren today and left with completely perfect straight hair. I can honestly say it was the best job ANYONE has ever done using the Japanese straightening technique on my hair. Lauren was lovely, funny, and friendly and the staff was extremely nice. Psst-its also the place where all the colts players wives and cheerleaders have their hair done! In six months when it's time for more touchups you can bet I will go nowhere else but here. Highly recommend!

I would like to say how grateful and appreciative I am to these extensions and to Danita first off. Sounds a little funny.. But for anyone who has said this on these reviews, this goes true for me. I wear my hair extensions religiously, you could almost say it's an infatuation, and also because they are so comfortable!!! Like anyone who has damaged hair, I walked around depressed for a long time looking at the after and damaging effects of bleaching, dying and straightening my hair. Very unhappy, I had thought about getting extensions on a couple of occasions. But every other place was extremely pricey and I was certainly was not planning on paying a lot of money for glue or tracks to be stuck in my hair and have it anymore damaged and unable to grow. Highly addictive, impressive, beautiful and top notch is all I have to say about the service and the products of everything that goes into HairDreams. I really have to say over and over that I just cannot even begin to express my gratitude and I would like to say just how sweet, knowledgeable and patient Danita is. She was extremely helpful! Now it's safe to say they look sooo real, and soo beautiful, absolutely stunning. It's definitely is a boost of self esteem and has a remarkable feeling that makes you feel so beautiful. Everyone I know is impressed with them especially me of course, and the best thing is no one can tell!! They also last for a long time, especially compared to most salons in Indy that don??t use real 100% hair. I would really recommend this to everyone even if they don't have hair problems and just want thicker more beautiful hair. They are truly amazing!

Over the years, I've had a lot of good cuts-and a lot of bad ones. This time, I really did my homework before stepping into White The Art of Hair salon. My research really paid off! Danita was very attentive to my needs and gave me useful feedback and suggestions. I walked in with dead ends and "horse hair syndrome" and left with silky-soft, touchable tresses. The cut was precise and flattering- She is an expert with her scissors! I made an appointment to go back for highlights and maybe even extensions. Can't wait! :)

Don't get me wrong - the quality of the work Lush and Danita produces is good. However - I've was completely burned by her 'cancellation' policy which is so strictly enforced. Overall, I refuse to do business with someone who isn't willing to compromise with a loyal customer.

After being a loyal customer for over 2.5 years, I was laid off from my job and my Outlook calender I kept my appoints in went with it! I UNINTENTIONALLY missed an appointment and received a call from Danita 30 minutes after my appoint was to have started. I apologized profusely, and tried reasoning with her. I noted that I could come in the next day to make up the appointment, but simply couldn't afford a sunk $200. I could understand the policy if they employed "reminder calls"(which they did at one point but gave up on without a notice to clients...), but there was no reasoning with her - the $200 was charged and I've never been back.

She claimed she needed to pay her stylist her appropriate commissions for lost time...too bad they double book while someone processes.

Additionally, in the 2.5 years as a customer, I saw 4-5 different stylists - very transient work force.

NEVER again.

I was in Indianapolis from Scottsdale for a wedding and decided to take the opportunity to get my hair cut and colored. I had just arrived, had a cold and was generally not looking forward to it because I usually despise being stuck in a stylist's chair.

I can't even begin to describe what a fantastic experience it was at White The Art of Hair. You can tell that the stylists and staff are consummate professionals with unrivaled talent and training. I have never seen that level of skill exhibited in a salon in Arizona. Danita truly has a gift and an incredible focus.

I explained that I was getting married next year and felt that I should have the clich grown out hair for it. In the most polite and diplomatic way, she asked if I wanted her opinion. I'm so incredibly glad she did. I entrusted her to cut in the way she saw would be most flattering. The transformation was incredible.

I've never left a salon feeling so good about myself. My fianc picked me up and was totally in awe of the results.

The atmosphere made me feel comfortable enough to give the stylist free reign and the talent of the stylists made that so worthwhile.

It's been three months and I haven't been to another stylist. I'd rather fly back to Indiana than submit to the whims of anyone else.

Thanks again for everything and I hope to be back there soon.

White The Art of Hair is a great salon and I have been going there since it opened. The atmosphere is friendly and casual yet always professional and elegant.

I have been a client of Danita White's for almost 15 years for both color and cut and I always get compliments on my hair. I trust her implicitly and have always loved the result. Her cut and color techniques are first rate. One of the great things about Danita is that she always keeps in mind my personal preferences, and then offers her professional suggestions so that I end up with the best cut/color possible. I like to change my cut or color every 6 to 12 months and the days when I go in and say "I'm bored, let's do something different" are always fun. The wheels in her head immediately start turning and she gives me a cut or color that is different enough to satisfy my need for change, but doesn't drastically depart from my general overall style. I have been blond, brown and dark auburn and they all looked great!

My hair stylist moved and I am looking for a new place to go. I am big on reviews and take them quite seriously. I saw that the art of hair had 5 stars but like I said I always check reviews. I looked at the things people didnt like and I would have say it changed my mind completly. I like to invest money into my hairstylist but I expect high customer service. Even when I called to get some information the message on the phone sounded snoby. Not even taking the time to answer the phone. my friends follow my lead on who to go to and I would have to say that it would take something drastic to change my mind at this point

Wow. I am very surprised by all the one star reviews.

Danita (the owner) is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She's easy going, soft spoken and really thoughtful when it comes to her salon, clients, and services. All her stylists are fantastic with color, the best I have been to and I am quite picky when it comes to hair.

Living in Indy for 7 years I haven't found a stylist that I LOVE..... until I went to LUSH. Now I have a stylist that I can't do without.

And let me tell you, the phone not ringing while having your hair done is genius. Who cares if it makes booking appointments a little more challenging! I have a 2 year old and work customer service all day, the last thing I want to hear when relaxing is the phone ringing.

Making my living as a model here in Indianapolis and beyond requires that my hair always be at its best. I have very special needs to achieve my look and the people at White The Art of Hair went above and beyond to meet those needs. Lauren always does an awesome job on my hair. We always have a great consultation about how I wanted it colored (more highlights, lowlights or lighten/darken the base color). She always has great ideas and makes sure to make me look my best. She is available after work which makes seeing her plausible during the work week. She is funny and energetic and makes the trip to the salon fun and fabulous. Leaving me feeling gorgeous, pampered, and very impressed, from now on its nothing but the "Best" for my hair!

I can't say enough good things about this salon. I have been all over Indy trying to find the right stylist. I have gone to some of the most expensive shops and they do not come close to this place. Danita, my stylist, is just super. She knows my hair better than I do. She is an awesome stylist whether you just want a cut or want to add color. Her personality is light and bubbly. Of course that goes for the rest of the crew. For the best hair experience at great prices you owe it to yourself to check them out. Tell them Anne H sent you

I've been getting my nails done for about 15 years, and I had a great manicurist for about the first 7 years, and I followed her around town to wherever she worked. Then, sadly, she moved to California. I spent the next 6 or 7 years hunting for a good manicurist who wouldn't hurt me (several had made me bleed!), paid attention to what I wanted/needed, and with whom I could feel comfortable. Mai is the answer to a pampering prayer. I usually only get my nails done, and she does a fabulous job, and they last for weeks! I've also gotten pedicures from other people a few times in the past but never felt completely comfortable about having it done. I've gotten pedicures from Mai about 3 or 4 times and every time, she makes me feel relaxed, comfortable, calm, and pampered. She is thorough and professional, and my nails look great every time--but she can also be a friend! The only thing I love more than Mai, is the Shellac polish she uses. I have never had a manicure last so long, it is amazing. And if you want someone who is a perfectionist and will give you an honest opinion on what to do with the color mixing, she is your woman! Thanks Mai!

I have been seeing Danita at the White The Art of Hair for the past 2 years. She takes the time to understand what you want and will make suggestions for making your hairstyle even better. She recently completely changed my hairstyle. I was having a hard time working with it, so she sat me down in her chair, asked me exactly how I was styling it and then showed me what I was doing wrong. She actually had me use the flat iron on myself and her to get a better feel for using it correctly. That was all I needed to get the hairstyle to work for me and I've had plenty of compliments to prove it. Heather will take the time to answer any questions you have and if you are having any problems, will gladly share her experience with you. She also has an excellent manicurist and her name is Mai and the word is out about her, so call in advance to schedule an appointment as she books up quickly. Mai does all natural nails in shellac, gels and acrylic and uses a new sterile tub for each pedicure?no gross bubbly chair tubs!

After a tragic botch job at a local salon (I won??t mention any names), my co-worker turned me on to Danita and I??ve NEVER turned back. I walked in as a bleached Q-tip mess and walked out with the perfect shade of blonde?and might I add a very hot cut as well, thanks to Danita. Danita is the master of blonde?period! Her technique is natural, current and always cutting edge. I??m still a platinum blonde and my hair is the healthiest it??s ever been after a year and a half. Their stylists take the time to consult with you prior to your appointment to make sure they understand the exact look you are trying to achieve. They are extremely flexible with scheduling and are exceptionally friendly, but honest. I get nothing but complements on my hair. I constantly refer my friends, family and co-workers and they??ve all had the same result?100% SATISFACTION!

They are extremely flexible with scheduling and are exceptionally friendly, but honest. I get nothing but complements on my hair. I constantly refer my friends, family and co-workers and they??ve all had the same result?100% SATISFACTION!

Customer Service was not what I had hoped.

I don't agree with review below. Every time I visit I am always greeted with a smile and always accommodated. Danita is the nicest salon owner! I do my high lights and color here along with weekly blow drys and have never had a bad experience! I recommend anyone in the neighborhood to give this place a try. Danita is a top notch colorist though everyone there is so professional that I can trust anyone to make my hair look pretty and sleek.

The great reviews MUST be from the owner and staff. The owner and staff here have NO CLUE on customer service and common sense on how to deliver customer service. And they're VERY haughty! Come on! This is Indy. Get over yourself! Taking my business elsewhere!

So I've been to all the usual suspects in the city trying to find a nail tech who knows what they are doing. I'd pay any amount of money for my cuticles not to fray after 2 days and for my polish to stay on for at least 5 days. Now I don't have to offer my first born any longer...Rescued by White Lush Salon and Mai!
A few things about this salon stood out to me. First and foremost it's extremely hygienic. You get your own pedi/mani pack opened right in front of your face, they don't use Jacuzzi/Pedi tubs, as they harbor bacteria, they use a antibacterial liner and everything (towels etc..) are warmed to a bacteria killing temperature before being placed on your skin.
The quality of the mani/pedis is outstanding. The Pedicure set the bar for phenomenal pedicures. It was the most relaxing, invigorating soothing pedicure I've ever received. My feet are as soft as a baby's. My nail technician Mai was polite and meticulous. She expertly applied Deborah Lippmann polish, rid my nails of cuticles, and shaped my nails perfectly. On top of that she gave me the best leg, foot and hand massage.
The polish still looks great!

For years I have been going to the same stylist in Broad Ripple, but last month I wasn??t able to see my stylist due to major scheduling conflicts so I went to White Lush, a cute trendy salon in Keystone at the Crossing. Never in my life have I received more compliments on my hair color then last month when I got it highlighted. The next day I felt like a super model as numerous people commented on how good it looked. They didn??t do anything drastically different from my previous color job, but the consistency and natural balance of the colors was perfect. Since then I have referred many of my friends and all have thanked me profusely for introducing them. The prices are reasonable and the salon is super cute and has a very friendly and talented staff. So if you want an amazing color job in a comfortable environment by a kind, talented, colorists, go see them today!

Well I just moved in from the Chicago area and was looking for an upscale hair salon. I looked on Citysearch and found this wonderful place!!! I made an appointment and was greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. I received a great cut, THANK YOU I had a wonderful time. They all were very busy, but not too busy to offer me refreshments. A great glass of wine with a great haircut, now how can you beat that!!!! I will be back and am thinking of coloring my hair next time. Thanks again for the great experience, SOOOOO glad I found you all.

I live in the area and after reading about the salon in last months ELLE magazine I stopped in to buy some of their amazing products! Anyway, after chatting with a couple of the girls I ended up staying to get my hair colored and I'm very happy I did! The girls that work there are so nice and really love what they do! Do yourself a favor and check this salon out- I couldn't be happier :)
See you in 4 weeks ladies!

If you have lost hope of getting the hair color you want stop and give them a call. Go see Danita for a consultation and you will feel and look better. She did exactly what she told me she could do!
I had been to another salon 4X trying to give them a chance to make good on their promises of helping me achieve what I wanted. I went from orange to gray and then back to orange. Finally I went looking for a salon that could fix my mess and over processed hair. I called and Danita the owner answered the phone and was the most helpful and courteous person talking to me for about 20 min. She made me an appointment and she was great. My hair now looks like it should have the first time I ever went for this going from dark to blonde. After the experience at the other salon it was so refreshing to be here. I am looking forward to a long relationship.

I have been a client for almost a year now and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. I get my hair cut and colored by Danita and she is phenomenal. I am very shy and quiet by nature but she is so friendly that I feel like I am just talking with a friend.
Salon- The salon itself is quite pretty- open and airy with hardwood floors.. You can tell this is an upscale salon but it doesn't have that upscale snobby feel. The minute you enter you are offered a drink and made to feel at home. This is great for people like me who feel intimidated by salons and spas. The movies on the tv are a nice touch for those times you are getting your hair colored or just don't feel like chatting. The magazine selection is top notch. I have found them to be very accommodating when it comes to making an appointment- they opened early one time for me which was just AWESOME and a great example of customer service.
Cut and color- Danita really listens to what you have to say and actually takes your face shape and styling limitations into consideration when discussing a style with you. My hair is very thick and wavy and can be very hard to style if it isn't cut just so but she always makes my hair look fantastic and the cut lasts forever! I have a pretty busy life so I don't want to spend a lot of time on my hair and she takes that knowledge into account when she cuts my hair. The last time she cut my hair (graduated bob that just looked awesome) I received a ton of compliments. What an ego boost! I also have a very sensitive scalp and when I would get my hair colored at other salons my scalp would be very irritated, almost burned. The color is very rich and quite natural, which means a lot for a graying 35 year old woman.
This studio is a bit pricy but I really feel you get what you pay for here. You don't have to worry about the cut or color looking raggedy after 6 weeks which is a plus in these economic times. Give this place a shot, you will be glad you did.

I have been Danita??s client for 17 years and not once known how to explain what I wanted. No matter. She has happily shaped vague clues and total trend illiteracy into haircuts that consistently generate unsolicited compliments. She rocks.

In response to a previous comment about her not caring about new clients... Pshaw! I must have sent her a dozen referrals over the years, all of whom had the same positive experience.

If you're looking for a hairdresser who puts on a show and acts like an obsequious servant (e-e-w-w-w-w) go elsewhere. But if you want someone who cares about what you want, knows her stuff, and on whom you can rely, be glad you found her.??

I was on my way to see a friend and got stuck at a train crossing. After sitting there 3 minutes and staring at the bright yellow banner on the corner which said "Hate Those Gray Roots?", I couldn??t stop thinking about my shabby hair with the faded highlights, grey roots, and dull color. I called my friend and told her that my car broke down and to go to the movie without me and then I pulled into the lot and went in to Lush Salon.
The salon was busy for a Wednesday and I asked if it was at all possible to squeeze me in for some major work. I know that the gal behind the desk wanted to help, but I could see the schedule on the computer screen and I knew that no one had a good block of time right then. She got Lexi who asked me bluntly: "If I apply your color and Adrian takes over in an hour, would you be OK with that?" I saw the gal that Adrian was working on and the lady who just got out of the chair and they looked great, so I agreed to be 'spread across the staff' and that is what happened. Lexi started me off, Adrian stepped in, and finished the blow-dry and flat iron and that was it.... I was now a Lush client for life. My husband almost didn??t recognize me and he took me out for dinner just to show me off to the world. I do not know who to give credit to, so it goes to the entire staff at the salon - I never saw a group of stylists work so well together and get along. The other clients seemed like they were all family and the place was just fun to be in. You are the BEST!!!!!!!
