I was in a car accident and for two months attended weekly therapy sessions for my back and left arm. I had daily extreme pain and my therapist suggestions did not help. In on 15 minute massage and with the advice given to me by Jessica my massage therapist, I was able to experience my 1st pain free week in over two months. I am forever grateful.
I visit Salon Ultimo every two weeks. I see Sam for the Shellac manicure. She does an amazing job on nails. Her french manicure is outstanding, pure perfection. I have been going to the salon for 2 years and have never been disappointed. I always get compliments on how wonderful my nails look. I have recommended many friends to the salon. The front desk staff are always very friendly and helpful. I love coming to Salon Ultimo.
I am truly in awe of the work Jessica has done with me in her massage technique. She listens carefully to me in my needs and addresses my issues with professional and personal compassion. She is natural in her ability to connect. I’m so happy to have found her. The entire staff has been nothing but supportive and helpful each time I’ve been in. Kelly, my hair stylist is fabulous and fun as well! Great job Salon Ultimo! Yes, I will & do recommend your services.
Kate is Fantastic. I see her every 2 weeks for the best manicure ever. She is truly a perfectionist. My nails are flawless every time! She’s an excellent conversationalist, and I enjoy “catching up” with her each time I see her. Thanks Kate!
My name is Amy and I just wanted to drop a quick line to talk about the wonderful staff you have at Salon Ultimo. I’ve had my hair cut by many over the years – Kelly, Amy J and Steph – all are WONDERFUL and do the best job ever! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the online scheduling that you have available and as all these girls are so popular (and sometimes hard to get in to see) you can just click around online until you can find an appointment that works for you.
I’ve had fabulous results with anyone who’s ever cut my hair and I would not be afraid to go to anyone there for service. Thanks, Salon Ultimo!
I am a customer of Kate, the manicurist at your establishment. Aside from possessing a delightful personality and her ability to lift the end of my hectic days with a smile, she is meticulous and very knowledgeable. I am very finicky about how my nails are done and have been known to come home after a treatment and remove and redo my nails due to dissatisfaction. With Katie I have finally found someone who shares my desire for perfection when it comes to my nails. She is great and I will be entrusting my manicures (and pedicures in the spring) to her from now on. I would recommend her, and have, to all my friends and colleagues without hesitation.
I recently visited Ultimo for the first time and was very impressed, the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the service is superb! Lisa cut my hair and did a fantastic job. She took the time to explain so much about my hair, I really appreciated it. The shampoo massage was great! I will return without a doubt.
I would recommend Debbie Gibson for any skin care service you may need. She has been servicing me for over 10 years and I am very pleased with the facials, waxing and tinting that she provides in her gentle friendly manner. Also, high regards to the friendly receptionists. Vicky, Ann, Suzanne and Molly are always there to answer questions for me.
Shannon and Chris, husband and wife owners, of Salon Ultimo, operate a full-service salon. Along with their experienced staff, they make you feel special from the moment you walk into their salon by providing a warm and inviting atmosphere. They treat you like family whether it is your first visit, or you've been a "family member" like me for 21 years.
The three most important things about the salon are:
1. Expert, Quality, Customer Service
2. Products and update colors
3. Friendly, variety in appointment times
Salon Ultimo provides excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere. I place a lot of confidence in the expert services that I receive. I also appreciate that Salon Ultimo offers a variety of appointment times during the day, evening, and weekend to best fit with my schedule. I’m happy to be a customer for over ten years.
Shannon does a consistently great job with my haircuts and color. She gives me the extra attention needed with my naturally curly hair which can be quite challenging to work with. She also does a wonderful job customizing the color for my increasingly silver head so that it looks very natural. I love the variety of products Salon Ultimo uses and offers for sale for curly and colored hair too. The products help keep my hair looking soft, healthy and fresh.
Sam loves doing manicures and pedicures and it shows. She is a very sweet and fun to have a conversation with. She listens carefully to my personal concerns with my nails and addresses each one with expert suggestions and advice for products to use at home. She also gets me out of my box by suggesting new colors to try that complement my skin tone and match with most clothing colors. Sam prides herself in high quality work; she is pleasant, prompt, and meticulous. I look forward to my visits with Sam and always go home feeling relaxed and pampered.
Molly has always provided me with wonderful customer care by being friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Molly has gone out of her way to be helpful to me when changing an appointment or helping me choose products that I will be happy using. She even shared her own personal experiences using the products. It’s always nice to see her at the front desk when I first arrive or at the end of my visit.
I’ve been a client at Salon Ultimo for almost 20 years and the service, quality, and quest for customer
satisfaction has never wavered. The salon has an urban-cosmopolitan feel, yet the personal attention one would expect from a close friend. Thank you to Karen, Debbie, Kelly, Vicky, and the rest of the staff!!
I have been coming to Salon Ultimo since I moved to Woodbury in January of 1998. Jacquelyn has taken me from a curling brush to a flat iron and kept those pesky gray hairs hidden all these years. Julia tames my bushy brows and helps me with my make-up choices. Although they keep me looking my best, the real reason I return is that you are treated like family. They have cheered me on through some pretty tough times. Vicky and Ann greet you with a smile and a kind word. As with any successful business, the real jewels are the people who work there.
Salon Ultimo was highly recommended to me by a long-time friend. I had the same hair-do for 40+ years, and it was relatively old fashioned. I made an appointment with Connie and was scared to death to have my hair cut. Connie gave me a cut that now six months later I still love, and I let her know every time I visit Salon Ultimo. I have received so many positive comments regarding my hair that I made the right choice. I live in Dassel, MN which is about 85 miles from Woodbury, and I travel every seven weeks for my cut and style.
Besides Connie being an absolutely wonderful talent, who's friendly and cheerful, everyone at Salon Ultimo has been great to interact with; it’s fun to go there. We laugh a lot. In addition to the usual hair care products most places carry, they also have some of the most unique jewelry and purses you would love to purchase. I have! Believe me. You try them once, and you’ll want to go back for all your future hairdressing appointments.
Thanks so much Ultimo!
Annie is simply stupendous! She has a gift to envision a new color and/or look for her clients, she listens with her heart, and she can make your hair look the healthiest you can imagine. Annie knows products that will enhance your hairstyle, and she only recommends what you need or what you feel comfortable using. Her wisdom and creativity go beyond hair too. Just ask her about chore lists, or any other topic, and if she doesn’t know she’ll find someone who does! The front desk team or “hospitality ladies extraordinaire” as I call them, are simply outstanding. They always go the extra mile, not only for you, but also for your family. They get to know you because they truly desire to serve you. You will feel like Jackie O., a woman I have always admired – respected; subtlety classy; and completely satisfied with the money spent for the services rendered.

There are so many wonderful things to say about Sam. She has all the good traits one would want when going to such a beautiful salon. But what keeps me coming back is that she always pushes the envelope with me. I have worn nail colors I would never dream of before. It makes me feel fun and young. What more could I ask for?
Salon Ultimo is awesome! I always feel welcome and appreciate how cheerful the entire staff is. I have been a client of Amy H’s for six years and she always does my hair just the way I like it. She remembers important details about me and my hair style. I can depend on her and she always does a fine job. She also does my husband’s hair and he likes her as much as I do. For the first time ever my husband and I are temporarily seeing another stylist because Amy is on maternity leave. Steph is really great and I am enjoying how she styles my hair. I look forward to every appointment because I know I can relax and enjoy myself.
Karen is fantastic! She’s always cheerful and accommodating. As a client of hers for over twelve years I
wouldn’t consider seeing anyone anyone else. She puts you at ease.
Salon Ultimo is one of the best salons that I have been to. They provide top notch services, products, and have a wonderful staff. Cassi has been my hairstylist for 1 year now and I am always very impressed by her level of professionalism, creative ideas using color and attention to detail. It’s always a relaxing and enjoyable experience with Cassi at Salon Ultimo, and I leave feeling beautiful again! I would definitely
recommend this salon to everyone who enjoys being pampered!
Salon Ultimo is a very customer service oriented salon. I have been a customer of Salon Ultimo since it opened its doors 22 years ago. During that period of time I have commuted from Fergus Falls and Mankato, MN in order to receive their services. During that time I have been served by four staff members. All have been outstanding. Jacquelyn is my current stylist. She is an awesome professional and friend. The teamwork that is demonstrated is what makes Salon Ultimo a first class event each time I receive services.
The customer satisfaction is what makes this salon a cut above all other salons. Congratulations on achieving 22 years of first class customer service to all of your customers. Customer service is the reason for the great success.
I have been a customer for almost 4 years now, Jennifer is my wonderful stylist. I have never had so many compliments on my cut, and hair color. I highly recommend her to all my friends. The atmosphere is great and I look forward to all of my visits.
Melissa is truly a gift to me. I get regular facials from her. The experience is always pleasurable and leaves me feeling relaxed, nurtured, and rejuvenated. She is so kind as well as skilled and knowledgeable. I have had facials by many people and hers are the best. I tell me friends if they want the best facial ever to see Melissa.
My daughters and I agree that if you want a really good haircut (maybe the best in town) see Jane. Jane has been cutting and coloring my hair for over 19 years. Her knowledge, skill and ability plus her warm and friendly manner are only some of the reasons I keep coming back. She is truly interested in me as a person and wants me to look my best.
I received haircuts and styles from various locations around Woodbury over several years. I was always satisfied with my haircuts but eventually moved to a different salon after some time. I was always waiting for that "wow" factor. I made my first appointment with Salon Ultimo this winter. I was told Annie would be my stylist. Not knowing anything about the stylist or the salon, I was excited to be a new customer.
From the first moment I walked in, I was welcomed with kindness from the receptionist. I was offered something to drink while I waited. Annie greeted me in a friendly manner and led me to her station. We chatted about what I wanted to do with my hair color. I wanted to go lighter with a full foil. She was the only hair stylist I've had that has given me exactly what I wanted. She styled my hair in a fun and easy way and she offered me her knowledge in several styling products.
I am so glad that I found Annie. I have never had as many compliments on my hair as I have after I went to her. Annie is great and I am so excited to go back again. When I left I was given gifts and coupons as a first-timer. That was the first time I have ever received gifts from a business because it was my first time there. I am really impressed with your business approach. I'm happy I found Salon Ultimo and I will continue to come. Thanks so much for my fantastic experience.
I have been a loyal customer of Salon Ultimo for almost 10 years. The staff is always so warm and welcoming; the atmosphere is sophisticated, yet soothing. And most importantly, the services are outstanding. My stylist Connie is so experienced and knowledgeable; she knows my hair and how to style it so I can look my best. She always takes time to listen and talk about new looks. This is what keeps me coming back to Salon Ultimo year after year.
Jacquelyn is a fabulous stylist who is very in sync with giving me the haircut and style that I want. She’s gregarious and extremely knowledgeable about hair. I love coming here. It’s a warm, friendly environment enhanced by Vicky and Suzanne who always greet me by name. Vicky, Suzanne and the other receptionist do an excellent job in welcoming clients.
From a business perspective I REALLY like the appointment phone call reminders. That's awesome! Too many businesses call after you've missed a scheduled appointment. A call ahead is so appreciated. LOVE LOVE Amy J - She has introduced me to so many new ideas that I would have never thought to try. She's highlighted my hair, added hair extensions and she always keeps my cuts fun and fresh! Amy J is a great listener. I brought a picture of a cut in, we talked about it, and she cut it to make me look great! You're awesome Amy J!!
Dennis and I have been clients of Salon Ultimo since the late 1990’s. We typically use hair care, manicures, pedicures, and esthetician’s services. Salon Ultimo has been the best salon we have ever patronized. The current ownership, as well as the previous, has always done everything they can to accommodate our needs. The quality of the staff is excellent and the turnover rate is extremely low. As a result, we’ve been able to depend on consistently high levels of service with the same personnel more then we have experienced anywhere else and that is very important to us.
Two examples of excellent service:
1. We had previously patronized a salon in the Cathedral area for seven years. Because it was difficult from me to get there during heavy traffic, I switched to Salon ultimo in the late 1990’s. Dennis did not want to switch at that time. In 1998, Dennis’s father passed away. Our previous salon was not willing to accommodate an emergency appointment for Dennis prior to the funeral, even for a long term client. So I contacted Salon Ultimo and the immediately put Dennis on a list for the next cancellation. Within three hours, he had an appointment for that same day, even though he was not a current client. That is true service. Dennis transferred his appointments to Salon Ultimo shortly thereafter. And you have never disappointed us with your services.
2. I was at Salon Ultimo during an appointment when Dennis cut his hand severely at home. He managed to drive to urgent care directly across from Salon Ultimo. The urgent care service redirected him to Regions Hospital, but would not allow him to drive any further. Chris (co- owner) volunteered to drive Dennis to Regions in his vehicle while Shannon (co-owner) drove behind in Dennis’s truck so he would have transportation once his hand was treated in the ER. That is beyond true service. That is caring about your clientele as if they were family.
The primary service providers we see are Jacquelyn Cameron and Melissa Swanson. They are both gems! They make an effort, no to only accommodate our requests, but to ensure that we’re satisfied with every aspect of their service. They’re wonderful people and have become friends as well. And best of all, that’s typical of all the staff at Salon Ultimo.
Thanks for being such a well run business and excellent provider of services. We are both very appreciative of Salon Ultimo and everything you do for your clients.
Dennis and Carol Hoppe
Connie has been my stylist for eight years. I have been a Salon Ultimo client for 15. The entire staff and management are wonderful. The salon is always a welcoming, relaxing, friendly part of my day. Connie is a magician. Thank you for the great job that you do. I love all the products Connie has recommended. She is an experienced educator and a good friend.
Shannon, my hair cut and foil are just perfect, as always!!!! Thanks for the usual fabulous service. You are the best.............
Sam has done my pedicures for a couple of years. My toenails look really lovely when she is done, and she also makes me feel good and look better too. She has done some wonderful nail art for me for special occasions. Sam is kind, accommodating and fun! I look forward to my pedicures as a treat.
Salon Ultimo is super clean and never smelly. It always looks beautiful and is decorated gorgeous for the holidays. The staff is very helpful.
I have been coming to Salon Ultimo for 20 years and have always been satisfied with the staff and quality of the cut and color. Although I have very fine and thin hair, the cut gives me fullness and the color adds depth. I am constantly recommending Salon Ultimo to neighbors and friends. My daughter also comes to Salon Ultimo. Cassi is a great stylist, friendly and always takes care of me.
I have been going to Salon Ultimo for years. I consider the gals who take care of me “family.” They are flexible, understanding, interesting people who seem to really care if I am happy. Most of all they are professionals who take their jobs seriously. I recommend them often. People have come to me to find out who does my color. I have many different services from hair to toes and everyone does a great job.
I have been a customer here for at least four years. I’m on my fourth hair stylist (the first three are no longer here). I have always been happy with my color and cuts. Jacquelyn makes suggestions and educates me as to what is best for my hair. The scalp massage is awesome. I do get compliments on my hair.
Moving to Woodbury, in January, from warm, sunny, Florida was a huge adjustment. Then, searching for a new hair salon to meet the satisfaction that I had found in Florida was huge for me. My experience, after walking into the beautifully decorated salon, was wonderful. The whole staff made it their mission to make me feel welcome and appreciated! One can tell that the staff works as a team and they truly like and respect one another. There is always appropriate laughter going on with the client and server, plus, you will always receive a smile from all of the staff, whether they know you or not. I am so well taken care of by Amy, Kate, Melissa, Vicky, Suzanne, Molly, Ann, Steph and other excellent staff members. I am truly grateful for their service and friendship. All of you have made me feel loved and cared for. You have shared my life with me as I have shared yours'. What more could a woman want while she is being pampered and made to look as beautiful as possible?
*You will be missed Ellie. We are so lucky to have been able to become firends with you.
Love, Team Ultimo.
I’ve been going to Salon Ultimo for over ten years now and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. It has the best staff that is very friendly and helpful in making and changing appointments. Connie does an unbelievable job at coloring and foiling. No one knows that I’m almost 90% white under there because it looks so natural. I love the way Connie cuts my hair too, so my father-in-law, husband, and son go to her too!
I have received services at Salon Ultimo for years. The desk staff great me with wonderful energy and I feel like they are genuinely glad to see me. Kelly is a true artist with color and when I am at the shampoo bowl the extra moments of massage make a difference. Even though I wear my hair short the texture and richness of my hair style surprises me every time. Karen takes care of my hands and feet which are soft, tender and beautiful after she takes special care of my difficult feet and used hands and nails. We laugh and share our experiences.
Melissa is the Esthetician who tends to my poor 60 year old face. She has customized my facial for my specific needs and each part of the European Facial brings pure comfort. The extra touch with the arm and shoulder massage leaves me re-energized.
This is a wonderfully managed intimate salon that obviously treats its people well. In a busy, hectic and often unfriendly world this place stands out as a real treasure.
I always look forward to coming in to Salon Ultimo. Everyone has a great working relationship with each other. These are warm friendly vibes. I have been coming to Connie for ten years. She can read my mind when it comes to my hair. I love her!! I leave feeling “worth it”. The girls at the front desk are always welcoming and helpful.
I've gotta say I am the fussiest person in the world -- but I'm not rich. I called Salon Ultimo and asked for their cheapest stylist. They gave me Annie. I was worried because they said she's their newest stylist. I cannot BELIEVE the great job she did of cutting and styling my hair. I've never been able to find a stylist that can really style my hair like I like after a haircut. I always rush home and re-wash and style it like only I know how to. I was so excited when she was done. I not only didn't have to rush home to re-do my hair, I went out shopping after she was done! Thank you Salon Ultimo for Annie! She is my new stylist!
Cassi gave me a great haircut. She took off the perfect amount to my liking. She gave great product recommendations that I will remember for the next time I need product.
I am so pleased that many years ago I stopped by Salon Ultimo just to buy some product. From that day on I found a "family away from family." My husband now goes to the salon and is also treated like family. We're always greeted by smiling faces, and the professional staff makes sure that we are comfortable. I have recommended Salon Ultimo to friends, neighbors, high school classmates, ladies from church, etc. I love the relaxing head massage that Shannon provides, and she makes sure that I "get relaxed." I feel very comfortable in sharing "special moments" that happen in our lives with not only Shannon, but Connie and staff at the reception desk. I so much look forward to my appointments, and walk away feeling (and looking) like a new person.
I am so proud to be a customer of Salon Ultimo who goes out of their way to help others in need. Their fundraising events are unique to the community. Life is made up of a patchwork of friends. I'm so blessed to have Salon Ultimo in my "quilt of friends."
From the minute you walk into Salon Ultimo, you are treated with warmth and kindness. A staff member greets you at the desk, offers you water, tea or coffee and makes you feel welcome! Connie has been my hair stylist for several years. The attention she gives her clients, I believe, is unique and very professional. What I like most about Connie is her ability to personalize each appointment. She takes time to listen to concerns, analyzes the condition of my hair, and gives suggestions based on her experience and expertise.
Thank you Connie and Salon Ultimo for providing excellent, full-service hair care!

When you walk into Salon Ultimo you are greeted by staff that makes you feel like you are a very important extended family member. I have several services done at the salon and each one is very personable and listens as to your request. I recommend everyone that is looking for a salon.
I am a regular customer of Jaquelyn and Melissa for a number of years and can’t say enough about every one of the staff that I have had services with. Thank You!
Last night was the first time I'd had my hair cut by Steph. I will most definitely be scheduling all of my future appointments with her! It is hands down the BEST hair cut I have ever had. Steph got it exactly right. I could tell with each clip of the scissors that she had the experience and technique to shape my hair perfectly. Typically after I have my hair cut, there are little things I am not satisfied with. I honestly didn't think it was possible to get exactly what I wanted, until last night. Now I know all I need to do to get the perfect cut is call Steph. Thank you Steph!
Salon Ultimo is a “happy” Salon with full service offerings. When you walk in you are greeted by the smiling gals who immediately offer you a coffee or tea. I am then greeted by your marvelous stylist Jacquelyn who has a magic touch not only with color but with your style. You truly feel rejuvenated and happy when you leave. I have also had message and facial and they are equally marvelous. Everyone who works there is always in a good mood. Thank You!
Salon Ultimo has always provided professional and friendly services in the many years I have been a customer. Always providing new and interesting products at competitive prices.
I'm about as picky as it gets with salons (I mean really, who isn't?) and have tried my fair share of them in Woodbury and Salon Ultimo gets my vote - hands down.
I've been going there for haircuts and highlights for the past few years and absolutely love it. Now that I've found Salon Ultimo I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Jennifer has been my stylist and she is excellent. Any changes I've made with hair color or length I've always been incredibly pleased walking out of the salon...which is definitely not always the case with other salons. And I love the scalp massage while getting my hair washed - that's always an added bonus!
Other than Jennifer, the other standout employee that I've had experiences with is Ann, Sales and Service Coordinator at the front desk. She is always smiling, happy, helpful, and incredibly professional - which is exactly the first impression needed at a salon.
Oh, and speaking of helpful - I love the online appointment system. It's so easy to use. I make all of my appointments online and it has worked out perfectly. The email reminders of appointments are great too.
I have been a satisfied client for over 20 years now. Actually, I think it may be longer than that as I have lost count. It's a family affair for our family. My daughter and son were clients over the years when they were growing up and lived at home and my husband is also a faithful client. I truly look forward to my regular visits to the salon and never get tired of going. As I walk through the front door, I am always greeted with one or two smiling faces at the front desk and a cheerful hello, followed by a great cup of coffee or tea.
It is such a charming place and always beautifully decorated for each season throughout the year. I especially look forward to the winter holiday season, wondering what color theme they will go with for that particular year. I remember the "Turquoise" theme was one of my favorites. They always sponsor a different family in need each year around the holidays and do many wonderful things.
They supply the client's needs with top of the line beauty products and offer many other services a woman or man loves; such as various types of facials, skin care, massage, pedicure and manicures, etc. My husband and I are longtime clients of Master Stylist, Jane Wallgren, and she takes wonderful care of both of us. Especially me, as I usually need a lift when I arrive and she makes me feel great. Every time I leave the Salon, I always get compliments on how nice my hair looks and that the color is beautiful. Makes me feel great! She is very knowledgeable in the business and I can always trust her suggestions and ideas. I love it when we try something new and different as she is just as excited as I am to give it a try. She has such a great personality, and as I said before, I truly look forward to my visits with Jane. We catch up on what our families have been up to, our vacations, our friends and just good old girl talk. I don't know what I would do if she ever retires. I would highly recommend Salon Ultimo and also Jane Wallgren to anyone who needs any type of hair or beauty service. Don't forget to ask for a Salon Ultimo gift certificate for any special occasion. I always keep my fingers crossed when my birthday or Christmas rolls around each year and have been pretty successful so far... Hurrah for that!
Thanks for letting me share my Salon Ultimo Testimonial with you. It's the best and so are you Jane!!
