Share the Experience

I been living back in the Pittsburgh area for ~18 month and have gone to 3 different salons since I've been back.  I have been blonde for as long as I can remember, but every salon that I went to in the South Hills either left me with brassy orange tones or a not-so-consistent cut.  Aaron changed that for me.  I had my hair cut & colored a week ago and FINALLY feel like my old self and like what I see when I look in the mirror.  I think my husband & I would both kiss him for my new do (my hubby doesn't have to listen to me whine anymore!)  Thank you so much Aaron!!!


On my wedding day I and all of my special ladies got pedicures and manicures. I also got a massage. It was by far the best thing I could have done on my wedding day. Everyone was very nice and it was an amazing experience. I was so calm afterwards and would recommend this spa to anyone and everyone!


My health insurance should pay for my haircuts with Diane! Who needs therapy for "life" when a visit to Diane will melt all of your problems away! I can't say enough great things about her wonderful disposition, her attention to detail, and the fact that she really listens to what you have to say! I recommend her to everyone I know, and even people that I don't know, for the best haircut ever!

Had my second appointment with Bonnie, She is the best. She is the guru of waxing!

I got my haircut at the La Pomponnee in Mt. Lebanon for the first time last week. Just wanted to let you know that Aaron did a great job. This is the best cut I've ever had. Can't wait to come back in a few weeks.

Thank you Elham for the BEST haircut I ever had! It looks great and I'm getting lots of compliments! See you again soon!

Recently I had surgery. The nurse checked my date of birth several times and said that she thought someone had made a mistake in entering the year - as my skin didn't look its age. (BTW no makeup before surgery) She asked what my skincare regimen was - Aveda Tourmaline and Shannon Crowe. She is wonderful! Thanks Shannon for keeping my skin looking great!

I Love LaPomponee ! I Love the smells and colors of aveda when I walk into the salon and it always looks so trendy! I've been going to Christine now for a few years and I would never go anywhere else! She gets my highlights perfect each time. I'm very happy with how Christine cuts my hair also. She's the Best! I've tried lots of places too! Tammy is great at giving me hand messages and I wouldn't have anyone but Larry do my eyebrows. Larry's also done my make-up and I was very pleased! Please don't ever leave, you guys, cause I don't know what I'd do w/o you!

I just had a massage with Jeanine! It was the best! My upper back and shoulders have never felt so good! Book your appointment today!

I was just at the salon last evening for the second time and I wanted to tell you what a great stylist Kristen C. is. when I went in there for the first time, I had no idea what I wanted. My hair was damaged and outdated. When I left that day, I had a new style, and color. I went back yesterday for a touch up on my color and a cut. Kristen seems to know what will look good on me and I truly trust her judgment. She is the best and I just wanted to let you know what a treasure you have in her. She has earned you a well satisfied customer.

The experience I had at your Spa this past Monday night is one I will not soon forget. When I was asked to help provide transportation for 10 women from a local shelter, I hesitated. Am I blessed that I changed my mind. Larry is one special person who you are very lucky to employ. Please let me emphasize that I had never met him before that evening and he is not related to me either. The 10 women were indeed transformed in more than just physical ways. Throughout this wondrous evening, they each transformed into totally different people as evidenced by their verbal language as well as their body language. Had I not met them before, I would not have recognized some of them after their makeovers. In addition, I have to highly commend your staff. In addition to being highly professional, they were also extremely personnable. When I found out that they willingly volunteered their time, it brought tears to my eyes. In this world where we tend to concentrate on the negative aspects of life, your Spa, Larry, and its employees have done an unbelievable job of literally changing lives, mine included. Thank you so much!

Two words: Go There! My manicure and pedicures were amazing! They're the best I've ever had! The facials are amazing as well. My skin looks amazing!

Wow! What more can I say, La Pomponee definately has the best Hot Stone Massage in town :) Unfortunately I have switched jobs and I am not out in the South Hills much anymore, but I have to say that after a few attempts I have NOT been able to find another salon that compares to La Pomponee when it comes to this, I would recommend a Hot Stone Massage for everyone on your gift list this year!

I just had the best facial... my face is glowing. My skin feels better than ever. I recommend that everyone try a tourmaline facial!

La Pomponnee cuts through the competition with GREAT Customer Service! It has been so difficult through the years to find a stylist that is consistent in their performance as well as kind and considerate in their demeanor. It seemed like one time my hair looked great and the next it looked like the stylist was cutting my hair while looking at the ceiling. For about four years I was searching for someone I could trust would do a great job every time, someone to professionally advise me in the investment of a well-groomed personal appearance. This is what I finally found at La Pomponnee with Diane!!

Diane is the sweetest woman and she always does her best when cutting and styling my hair. I'm not just another customer, she treats me like a friend...advising me in the best style for my face shape, hair type, and coloring. I always walk out of the salon feeling consistently happy with my investment in a great hair cut and color! La Pomponee delivers an experience that makes you feel like a princess every time. Thank you Dianne & Team! Sincerely, Christy Pickell

I started coming to LaPomponnee ever since my aunt Saza started working there a couple years ago. Love the atmosphere, the staff, and the treatments. Lisa is the best! And Jennifer makes awsome 'couture' highlights a la Gisele :) Thanks guys!

I just moved to the McMurray area from Cleveland, Ohio and went to La Pomponnee in McMurray for the first time. I had a great, relaxing experience! I noticed that in the room where I was getting my hair cut there are only 3 style stations--I believe this 'smallness' made my experience more enjoyable as there was not a lot of staff running around nor a lot of noise. It was quiet and serene--I like that, especially after coming from my huge, loud, chaotic salon in Cleveland. This was a nice change and a very welcoming atmosphere as La Pomponnee is trendy but also inviting. When I moved here all I kept thinking about was all the salons I would have to try until I found the right one I clicked with! Well, after my first visit to La Pomponnee I have found the place I want to stay with! Deanna was great and totally real and nice and my hair looked great afterwards! I will definately go back and I plan on recommending La Pomponnee to my girlfriends! Thank You La Pomponnee! I am one satisfied customer.

As an employee of La Pomponnee for just over 11 years I felt I should share my experience with all of you.I graduated from Pittsburgh Beauty Academy with an associate degree in cosmetology in 1991. From there I tried working in a couple different salons in and around the city and to my dismay couldn't find any place that offered the caliber of services I was trained to offer or the professionalism in customer services I wanted my clients to recieve. At that time day spas had not become popular yet, so I decided to go into makeup artistry. I worked for various makeup companies and counters over the next 4 years still not able to satisfy my want to truly "make someone's day" In 1995 I heard a client of mine talking with her friend about this awesome place to go for spa services in Mt. Lebanon. As you can well imagine my ears perked right up! I got involved in the conversation,found myself at an interview with Kristen the next week and as they say my friends the rest is history!!

Working at La Pomponnee over the last 11 and ahalf years has been an absolute joy! I work with an amazing staff of over 60 enthusiastic,hardworking women. I'm able to say this because over the years I have been given the honor of becoming an in salon coach. Not only do I get to do what i love every single day,now I have the opportunity to help my co-workers do the same. TOTAL BONUS!!! La Pomponnee in my opinion is the best day spa around. it combines the lattest trends and treatments performed by highly educated staff who truly care about YOU. I will be forever grateful for La Pomponnee and all it has done for me, I can only hope you will allow it to do the same for you!

This place is amazing. Great atmosphere, relaxing and the personnel is the best. La Pomponnee is the place for massages. I went to Sewickley Spa for massage and didn't even compare to La Pomponnee massages!! As for bikini/eyebrow waxes, the personnel does not make you feel uncomfortable - make you feel very at ease especially if 1st time for any waxing. Joanne is your the lady for any waxing at La Pomponnee. For any one new to the Pgh area - I highly recommend La Pomponnee Spa/Salon. Thanks La Pomponnee!!!

"I've been a customer for the last four years - and I would not go anywhere else.  Elizabeth is the best! So many people comment on my cut and fantastic hair color. It's all because of her.  Everyone is always such fun and upbeat. I've never felt so relaxed and comfortable in a salon.  Thank you!"

"I have been wanting to share my feedback for a long time regarding La Pomponnée, so I am glad I found this feedback section! I have been a customer at La Pomponnée for about 4 years and even had all of my wedding preparations done there. I feel that it is so rare in this day and age to find a business that provides exceptional customer service. I have always been extremely pleased with the customer service I have received your salon and spa. Every visit I have had there has been relaxing and the employees are so friendly (including the ones who are not working with me - even those who just pass through the waiting area). Everyone always seems to be in good spirits and all of my services have been excellent. Your employees are what makes your spa such an enjoyable place to be. Christine has been cutting my hair for years and Teri has always done my brow arches. However, all of the other services I've had done have also been wonderful. Thanks for running such a customer-friendly business. Keep up the great work!"

"La Pomponnée is the real deal. Not just a gift certificate club. Great massages and yoga classes, a trendy salon and the best place for a brow arch around."

"La Pomponnée is amazing! What a transformation I received, I have been looking for a place like this for years! I am so excited about my new look, there is no where in Pittsburgh that can compete with the service, education, and style of La Pomponnée, so happy I found you, I will be a customer for life! Thanks to you there is a new me!"

"My boyfriend got me a gift cert. for my birthday and now it is my favorite place! My hair looks the best it ever has and my eyebrows are perfect!"

"Just moving to Pittsburgh, finding a new salon was key. I was so excited after my first appointment at La Pomponee. Thanks Kristen, I love my new look :)"

"I just came in from New York City, and just had the best experience from this salon. I was totally relaxed and will be back."

"Hi....I recently visited your salon for the first time. I love my hair! Jess highlighted my hair and put a toner on it. She did a wonderful job and my hair has never looked better. You are fortunate to have such skilled stylists working in your salon. Many thanks!"    - Christine May

"La Pomponnee has been my spa of choice for a few years. I have consistently returned to La Pomponnee even though I have moved to Shadyside in Pittsburgh. No spa in the city I have tried comes close to the way I am treated there and the way the specialists focus on you. I found that it is worth it to make the trip back.

I am a regular of Caitlin's and reccomend her for any waxing you need done-she makes you feel at ease while doing her job wonderfully. And she's done in a snap! Thanks La Pomponnee, for making me feel and look better."
