I am so happy I stumbled upon this salon! After having my hair bleached out at a different salon couple days earlier (not the way i wanted it at all), I came to Olivierio desparate for help. I did not feel comfortable with my new hair at all. At first I was pleasantly surprised by the service- they were super nice and actually listened to what I disliked about my hair and what i wanted to get done. Then they offered a couple of professional solutions of how to fix it and reassured me that if i still don't like it, we'll fix it again. I ended up getting a trim and lowlights, which were very carefully and professionally done and made me look and feel a 100% more natural. I felt comfortable in my own skin again, and you know how important for a woman it is to be confident and feel attractive. Thank you Olivierio for giving me my confidence back! You will definately see me again!
I was really impressed with this salon. I made a same-day appointment and walked right in an hour later. I got both a hair cut and highlights and was really pleased with the results. I've had terrible experiences with highlights that had not come out as I had wished, but when I went here they turned out perfectly- very tasteful. I was also given a student discount, so the price was incredibly fair. I've been recommending Oliverio to all of my friends since, especially those who are looking for a good salon near campus. The experience of those working there definitely shows.
Great, quaint little spot. Staff was friendly–I talked to the nail technician about traveling, jobs, the economy–and to-the-point. I was lucky enough to have an appointment the day that the new fall nail colors arrived and found the perfect purply shade for my tootsies! Didn't feel like they were rushing me out of the shop for the next customer: A big plus. Will definitely return.
" ... and although he continually spouts off 'Now I don't share my opinion... this is a place to make people pretty, not share my opinions' .... he told me his uncomfortable opinions my entire pedicure.
To top it off, the pedicure is a shotty makeshift chair with a foot bath that doesn't keep the water warm.
I highly suggest that if you want a peaceful experience where someone does not berate you with their small-mindedness, you go somewhere else."

This is sooo true!
I learned all about how some people don't take care of their feet and he was quite judgmental about them. Made me very uncomfortable and fearful of what he would think of me and my daughter...
Also, the description of the salon as written on groupon is EXTREMELY misleading and does not give an accurate description of what you will encounter when you walk in. Had I not paid in advance I probably would have left. I booked pedicures for myself and my daughter at the same time, thinking that we would sit together while our feet would be made beautiful. Instead, we had to wait for each other since there is no facility to do two pedicures at one time. I cannot imagine paying the "full" price for this pedicure and feel ripped off at the discounted price -- will not go back, even though the owner offered us free pedicures and manicures if we wrote a good review. Not worth it at any price...
We won't comment on the quality of the work. It is too upsetting.
Ron does amazing work! I have gotten much more expensive haircuts that don't compare to Ron's expertise. I also appreciate that he explains everything he does and even discusses with me different styles that could work with my hair.
Although the wife of this operation is lovely, does a wonderful job on nails... the husband is very clear homophobic and although he continually spouts off "Now I don't share my opinion... this is a place to make people pretty, not share my opinions" .... he told me his uncomfortable opinions my entire pedicure. He also called the far left "Nazis" and "Communists", insinuating they're basically the same thing. To top it off, the pedicure is a shotty makeshift chair with a foot bath that doesn't keep the water warm.
I highly suggest that if you want a peaceful experience where someone does not berate you with their small-mindedness, you go somewhere else.
Mother/Daughter Mani/Pedi – As a treat for my mother and I, before our family vacation to Las Vegas, I bought my mom and I each a Mani/Pedi at Oliverio Hair & Nails. This was my mother's first Mani/Pedi ever!We had a wonderful time relaxing, chatting, and our nails looked beautiful for our vacation!
The owners were so sweet! We enjoyed the conversation we shared with them very much! And who would have known, they were able to share with us recommendations of things to do on our vacation.
I will certainly be back to visit Oliverio again!
very happy with my hair cut! – My hair was in major need of a trim when I went in for my appointment. But Ron did a really great job at cleaning everything up. I'm usually a little nervous when people cut my bangs because they typically make them too short, but they are just right. The rest of my hair looks about ten times more healthy too! Over all, I enjoyed the atmosphere, service and conversation, and would recommend this to anyone looking for a great, reasonably priced hair cut!
love my new look – I recently got a cut and body wave here and love it.I have straight hair and wanted something different.Ron suggested a wave.So easy to style and care for.
Worst experience for a hair cut – I really don't want to give any star to this place. The guy named Ron is very rude and weird. Not professional at all. He is also a racialist. He has no confidence on his cutting skill. He even cannot finish my hair cutting. Worst experice for a hair cut in the United States.
