I left The Orange Olive Hair Gallery feeling fabulous today. A year ago I moved from southern California to Charlotte and anywhere I would go to get my hair done; their work was just not satisfying me. In serious need of a haircut, I decided to give them a call after seeing their award in the Best of Charlotte, Creative Loafing. (congrats!) They were very friendly over the phone and fit me in for an appointment, no problem! They paired me with Kathryn who is fairly new to the Salon. First impression was great. Even when I walked into the salon the vibe was so welcoming. Kathryn was so friendly and knew exactly what I was asking for. She was so passionate and focused with what she was creating. My hair cut turned out absolutely amazing. (Not to mention the amazing things their product line did to my hair). I want you to know this Kathryn and Orange Olive ladys!! I couldn't thank you more and will definitely be back.

I am new to charlotte. One of my friend had a beautiful hair cut from this salon and thus I went there for getting my balayage done. Yesterday I had it done by Katie. She is very friendly and amazing at her work, gave me a wonderful color to suits my skin tone and natural looking. I am very happy with it. Now I decided to go only to Katie for any of my further hair style needs.

After living in Charlotte 3 years I finally found a salon and hairdresser that delivers! Katie did my cut and color and it looked absolutely amazing, natural and without asking for specifics she knew just how to do what I wanted! I would go again and recommend to anyone looking for a crafty and creative, welcoming salon!

I've been to Orange Olive 3 times now, and every time I've gotten exactly what I've asked for. Destyn nailed my latest request again, and I'm definitely sticking with my latest iteration. The whole salon is really top-notch, and I'd recommend their level of service and expertise to anyone who appreciates the difference between a barber and a real, full service salon filled with talented stylists.

I LOVE the Orange Olive Hair Gallery!!! I've been going there for the past year and I couldn't be more satisfied! I purchase my products when I get my hair done and it's really convenient because they have what I like. I get compliments on my hair all the time and I will never change from my stylist Jessica!!! Thank you!!!!

I have been in Charlotte for about a year and a half and I've been trying to find my "hair home." I want someone that I feel comfortable going back to over and over for all of my hair needs. I found that place in Orange Olive! I made the decision to make an appointment at the Orange Olive based on Yelp reviews and it definitely met my expectations.
Ella was my stylist and I have never been so happy with my hair as I am now! She listened to my hair concerns and made suggestions based on the color and style that I was looking for. (I have long blonde hair and needed highlights, badly!) My hair looks so wonderful; I cannot wait to go back and see Ella again!
The salon is lovely. There are succulents in the windows and the colors and vibe are very welcoming. Not to mention that the salon is located in NoDa right across from Heist, so make it a day in NoDa, that's what I did!

I am not often motivated to write reviews of any kind, but my first visit to Orange Olive certainly warrants one. After years of trying to grow my hair out and never really making any new changes to my style, I decided that I wanted to go for a pixie cut again. This type of hairstyle definitely seemed to be one worth traveling to Charlotte for, and Orange Olive was exactly the place for it. Not only was Destyn the most patient stylist, but she did not seem one bit offended that I brought a picture for her to follow. She knew what she was doing but asked for my input the entire time, especially before any major cuts. I appreciate how much Orange Olive cares about your satisfaction with the experience. The sweet girl at the front desk even chased me out to my car to bring me the product that I had bought and then forgot!
If you are like me, looking for that place that makes the whole experience positive from beginning to end, please check out Orange Olive. I am so happy that I did and look forward to my next visit :)

In life, some of your most important relationships exist outside of familiar circles, yet they still require a certain amount of trust from the get-go. Finding a stylist you really mesh with can be hard, but at Orange Olive that relationship was forged immediately upon walking in and being offered a beverage and some fresh baked cookies while I waited for my appointment, perusing the style books and silently worrying my lip while I decided if I was really ready to dye my hair purple or not. My stylist discussed the options with me, including the shading and potential detrimental effects of the bleaching process, then offered some style suggestions that would be edgy but flattering. Ultimately, I walked out with banging new hair and refreshed confidence, feeling completely unstoppable. Orange Olive fits into NoDa exactly as you'd expect, and that's why it's such a treasure. I've told all of my friends to check it out, especially if they're looking to try something new.
