quality time & pampering the day before my wedding. They had a wonderful little snack spread & celebratory glass of champagne waiting for each of us! Most recently, I came to get my nails done after having my second baby. I brought my 5-week-old & all the staff admired & entertained him as I enjoyed a most lovely mani-pedi by Donna!

"I'd been searching for a new nail tech for some time now after my gal moved to Florida. I tried several other salons in the area but was very unhappy with either the service or price. I came across Spalon online & was hooked the first time. Donna is my new nail tech & one of the owners. She took the time to answer questions that I had about some new nail procedures & explained what would work best for me. Donna wasn't interested in just 'selling the product', she showed me around the salon & offered a beverage. I was also introduced to other staff members at Spalon & all are very friendly. Their prices are very reasonable & their service is without a doubt top-of-the-line.
If you are looking for a new salon, give them a try. You won't be disappointed." --MkM
"After reading about Spalon winning the "Best Pedicure" in Middletown, I figured I'd make an appointment to get a pedicure & decide for myself. First and foremost, Donna was fantastic! She asked me to select a magazine to read & then asked me if I wanted anything to drink. The room's setting was amazing. You could actually relax, because it was quiet, with just the right low set volume of music. If you want tranquility, this is the place to go. . . .and just be!" --L.B.
"Spalon is the place to be! Upon your arrival you will be greeted by the most personable Pam, who is always having a great day. The extremely talented Jeanine will transform your hair into something worthy of an Elle cover shoot. Donna, the mani & pedi goddess, will transform your nails into perfection. If you are in need of getting back your "glow", the amazing skills of their esthetician/make-up artist will have you looking like you just came back from a long vacation.
You'll leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, & looking forward to your next appointment! I know I am!" --WEM
"Spalon is my paradise on Aquidneck Island! Amazing people lend to an amazing experience every time I have an appointment. I wish I could take them all home with me! Every member of the salon is professional with a personal touch. You feel like one of the family when you are there. Top-of-the-line service & so reasonably priced! I would recommend everyone take the opportunity for this experience. You will go back for more!" --Gina B.
"My mom and I are from out of town & visited Spalon on the day of my brother's wedding. We had 'wash & style' appointments with Merri. She was extremely nice; we both left very pleased with how she had done our hair for the big day. The salon is also nice & clean. It's not huge, or over-the-top fancy, but everyone we spoke with was pleasant
& down-to-earth. The waiting area is comfortable with coffee & cold drinks. I would definitely go back if
I needed an appointment in the area & would recommend this place to others." --Annie D. from Wakefield, MA
"This place is beautifully decorated & clean. You can tell that the owners, April & Donna, take pride in the salon.
They're always there to greet you & always have a positive attitude. I had my hair done by Jeanine, who had come highly recommended by a friend. She did an excellent job analyzing my hair for color & gave me a perfect cut with a very pleasant demeanor. She recommended Kerin for my brow wax & I was very pleased with the results.
The relaxation area is quite lovely & was nicely secluded from the hair & nail area.
All in all, I was very impressed with this salon and will be going back!"
--Elizabeth O. from Middletown, RI
"The staff at Spalon is very professional & friendly. . . .it's a great atmosphere & comfortable. . . .love it there!"
--Lisa S. from Newport, RI
"Fantastic! I live outside of Philly & was in Middletown this month. I needed a single process, cut & manicure quickly, before a business trip to Chicago--and SPALON is the best place ever! The schedule was booked & they fit me in. Donna, a hands-on caring owner, gave me the best manicure. Merri followed that with a fantastic single process color & cut. I love this place. It is clean, beautiful, & everyone is so professional--I wish this place was in my hometown."
--Meg L. from Wynnewood, PA
"After moving here from Massachusetts, finding a salon that I was genuinely happy with was a struggle. Having been to numerous salons, I just couldn't find one that I liked enough to return back to. . . .until my visit to Spalon! I was extremely happy with the service I received at Spalon. When I arrived, I was greeted warmly by their welcoming staff & offered a beverage. My first visit, I got a cut & color by April. She was very professional, pleasant & personable. She did an amazing job with my hair. I was so pleased that I scheduled another appointment with her the week after for a keratin treatment, which I am beyond happy with! The environment is very comfortable; the salon is nicely organized, very clean, relaxing, & their staff is so friendly. The location is also easy to find. There are only positive things to say about this salon! I am glad to have finally found a salon that I will definitely be going back to!
Great people, great atmosphere, highly recommended!"
--Gina S. from Longmeadow, MA
"Kudos to both Donna & April for creating a salon that is both fun & professional. There is no drama among the hairstylists; all greet me with enthusiasm & kindness. My hair has been styled by both Jeannine & April, & I've always received compliments. Oh, I cannot forget to mention my monthly mani/pedis with Donna, also a co-owner.
All services are top-notch!" --Joan W. from Middletown, RI
"We just moved here two months ago. I brought both my little boys to Kayla. She did a phenomenal job with their cuts.
She has an outgoing, loving personality & will be our go-to girl while we are stationed here!" --Lindsay F. from MD
"Warm & friendly staff. April does a nice job. I've been used to my hair appointments taking way too long &
it's great to get in and out of there!" --Kim A. from Sterling, MA
"This is the first time my wife & I have been to Spalon. Contacted a childhood mutual friend Merri White Russo.
Walking in, I was very impressed. The atmosphere was very professional. There's a separate room for non-clients to wait in comfort, allowing the stylist to devote their entire attention to the client.
I've viewed Merri's work on facebook & it was absolutely top notch! My wife Lisa's hair turned out great!
I highly recommend Merri White Russo for all your styling & hair care needs!"
--Manny A. from Peoria, AZ
"I'm so, so thrilled that I chose Spalon for my wedding day hair/makeup. April & one other hairstylist split all of the hairdos (myself, 3 bridesmaids, my mother & my mother-in-law), while Donna did makeup. Not only did all of the hair & makeup turn out incredible, but April & Donna made the whole morning so much fun! They did a fantastic job managing the various personalities that come along with a large group of women on a wedding morning. I highly, highly recommend Spalon!! THANK YOU for making my wedding morning so fun!" --Kaitlyn J. from Washington, DC
"After a disastrous cut at another salon I really needed help. I checked out salon reviews on Yelp & happened upon Spalon. Their reviews seemed genuine and struck a chord with me, so I called the salon this morning. The moment I entered Spalon & was greeted warmly by the receptionist, most of my nervousness disappeared. I felt very welcome, something I haven't felt in a salon in a long time. In short order I was introduced to my stylist April, who is one of the owners. She was awesome!! She put me instantly at ease & got to work. I have baby-fine hair which can be very difficult to cut. She knew exactly how to help me out of the mess that was left by another stylist. I love my new hairstyle & now I can't imagine ever having anyone else cut my hair. Before I left, the receptionist took the time to show me the rest of Spalon. They have dedicated rooms for waxing, pedicures/manicures, massages & facials. Somehow it's both a beautiful space & very warm. . . .no stuffiness or pretentiousness that I've experienced at other salons.
I can't recommend Spalon enough & can't wait to visit again!"
--Jennifer G. from Portsmouth, RI
"I was in Newport for a long weekend recently & needed to get a Brazilian wax. I went to Spalon & saw Meghan.
She was amazing! The place was very clean; she was very professional, a sweetheart & did a thorough job.
It was one of the best Brazilians waxes I've had!" --Rachel W. from Grafton, MA
"Having a bad day? Walk through the door of this full service salon & your day will improve.
Staff is friendly, caring & positively upbeat. You will leave feeling & looking fabulous. Put it on your must-do list!"
--Jennifer T. from Newport, RI
"I have been a client of April's for probably more years than either of us wish to admit. I have followed her from place to place since the beginning & I must say that her joining forces with Donna has created an atmosphere that makes you feel welcomed from the minute you walk through the door (Pam would also have a LOT to do with that welcoming feeling, too). I wish them continued success & to never make me have to go somewhere else."
--Joseph C. from Newport, RI
"From the moment I arrived, I was treated as if I had been coming there for years!
Pam welcomed me with a smiling face & asked how I was. Donna did a fabulous job on my fingers & toes
& even took time to help me pick that perfect red! Spalon has a professional, caring, & knowledgeable staff.
Thank you Donna for squeezing me in this afternoon, I will be back!"
--Casey P. from Middletown, RI
"Spalon is a fabulous Spa/Salon! I have been a client since it opened & I cannot say enough about my wonderful experiences with Donna, April & the girls. They will go out of their way to make your nails, toes, hair & body fabulous!"
--Barbara R. from Portsmouth, RI
"I travel from Maine just to get my hair done by April who does a fantastic job, and is so pleasant I love seeing her!
If I'm really lucky, I have Donna give me a pedicure to die for!! How lucky for the people on the Island to be able to hop in their car and go to Spalon. . . .but don't worry, I'll still drive from Maine, it's totally worth it!"
--Linda P. from Naples, ME
"I have been a client of April & Donna for more than 15 years. When Spalon opened years ago, I was so excited.
The ladies work very hard, always doing amazing hair, color, nails & pedicures. These two owners are always adding & improving new services. The atmosphere is very warm, kind & caring. I always look forward to a nice relaxing visit.
Try Spalon--you will not be disappointed!" --Rosanne E. from Newport, RI
"I was visiting Spalon as part of a wedding party, the entire team there was absolutely amazing. Everyone was so professional; they made the whole experience relaxing & fun. I'm so sad that I do not live closer because I would be visiting them regularly. Thank you Spalon for such an amazing time. We all looked & felt amazing & wedding ready!
If you are having a wedding near Spalon, you'll have to visit & have them take care of you! Donna, April, Merri, & Kayla Thank You SO SO SO Much!" --Jack M. from Pearl River, NY
"Spalon is an oasis of style & tranquility in my busy life. The staff members strike a perfect balance between professional demeanor & a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The salon is impeccably decorated & enhanced by delightful fresh floral arrangements. Donna is a skilled & caring technician, always attentive to her clients' needs & preferences.
I consider my time at Spalon to be a worthy investment in self-care that renews my spirit & enables me to be a happy caregiver myself. Donna's pedicures are both sole-satisfying and soul-satisfying!
I look forward to every visit to Spalon." --Susan M. from Tiverton, RI
