What Our Clients are Saying
"Harold, my husband and I started out as friends. Living in Litchfield Park and his salon in Scottsdale, I continued to get my hair done near my home. My mistake! After being over processed, my blonde hair became dry and brittle. I finally asked Harold for help. Now we wouldn’t think of going anywhere else than "The Beauty Asylum". Over the last year my hair has grown out and become much healthier under Harold’s care. I always love the color and cut I receive. Even my husband (who has always preferred a barber shop) has become a loyal customer. For the first time, he is receiving compliments on his hair too. Now, every month, we make the hour drive to see Harold. He is incredible!"
"Harold is Awesome. A master colorist who gives amazing haircuts, he excels in all areas of his profession and has taken extensions to a new level. This talented man has literally changed my life—my perception of self and how others perceive me. Even my sex life has dramatically changed! Not a day passes without compliments on my lush, coppery mane. Harold James: The Titan of Tresses"
Kathleen E., Scottsdale, AZ
"I’ve been wearing hair extensions for several years but never felt totally secure until Harold got a hold of me. Believe me, no one would ever guess that I had them, even after my really vigorous work-outs at the gym. They look completely natural and stay put. A lot has to do with how beautifully he blends my hair with his scissors."
Jo E., Denver, CO
"I was a very skeptical and nervous when Harold recommended hair extensions for me for the purpose adding volume and a little added length while I was growing out my hair. He allowed me to meet and speak with his current hair extension clients for their feedback so I could ease a few of my fears and concerns. He was patient and supportive through the entire process. I decided to trust Harold and I am thrilled and overjoyed with my extensions. The extensions blend so well with my natural hair that people are challenged and don’t believe me when I tell them."
Carol Tutera, Scottsdale, AZ
"Harold has been coloring and cutting my hair for over 6 years. I get many compliments from people on both the cut and color. He always listens to what I want and I am always happy with the way my hair looks. Harold has given me shorter cuts when I've asked for them and has helped me grow my hair back out when I wanted it longer. He is an excellent stylist, I would recommend him to anyone!"
Love Patrene, Phoenix, AZ
"I am so thrilled with my hair style! I recommend Harold to all my friends because I always leave his studio with a beautiful hair cut and color that gives me confidence and style. Harold cuts hair so well and with such skill that if I ever move, I’ll have to fly back here just to get my hair done. Thank you Harold."
Suzanne M., Scottsdale, AZ
"Harold has expertly cut, colored, and cared for my hair for almost a decade and I recommend him with the highest of praise. He's a heck of a nice guy, too; honest, professional and a great story teller. Harold - never move away!"
Barbara Schleifer, Phoenix, AZ
"No matter where I go for the past 20 years I get stopped by someone who has to know where I get my hair cut and color from....I am always quick to pass on Harold James @ the Beauty Asylum as the my stylist and friend! Now, I have tried going the cheap route, and think I even colored my own hair once, but I would always come crawling back to Harold screaming HELP! He always greated me with a smile and never said...I told you so! I would recommend Harold to anyone and will never stray away again. I love my color and cut and get the priviledge of seeing Harold every 4 weeks."
"I always wanted straight hair, but I never thought that it would be possible because of how thick and unruly my hair was. When Harold offered to try a Brazilian Blowout on my hair, I was hesitant at first. I wasn't sure if my hair would end up totally straight, but I took a chance and tried it. Harold completely exceeded my expectations! My hair was soft, shiny, and straight, and it was perfect! Since then I have gotten another Brazilian Blowout and I couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks Harold!"
