I got a terrific haircut and style with Valerie. I've already booked my next appointment for next month. Her salon is also a boutique with lots of vintage offerings.

Valerie is great. She has been cutting and coloring my hair for over 20 years. I take my two daughters to her as well. She always makes sure I am happy with the results. She offers opinions on color choices. I trust Valerie so much that there have been times when i just tell her to pick a good color for me and I havent been disappointed.

'I Feel like a Woman'. Let's face it, it's been a rough year. So, I treated myself to a luxurious hair wash and style. And, I feel like a new woman. Valerie is a perfectionist. Very knowledgeable, creative and friendly. I really needed a consult on the best way to give my hair body and bounce, and Valerie came through for me! I highly recommend this charming salon.. 5 star performance!

I called here on a Tuesday at 11:10 and Valerie was able to get me in at 11:50! I can honestly say she gave me the best haircut I've had in my 22 years of living. I can finally feel confident with my hairstyle. Even though it was my first time meeting Valerie, she made me feel as comfortable as if I had known her for years.


Valerie did a great job on my hair! I had hair down to my mid-back. I came in looking for balayage and a cut just under my collar bone. I brought in a picture. She talked to me about the picture and the process, and showed me color swatches to see how light I wanted to go before she did anything

For the consultation, cut, balayage, and styling it took close to three hours. (A welcome vacation from packing with a toddler!) Valerie nailed the cut! She got the exact length I was looking for, and worked some magic on the side-swept bangs I had cut for myself. The balayage looks great too! I'm so happy, and I know I'll be coming back  next time! 

Valerie also sells beautiful fresh cut flowers on Friday and Saturday, and has an adorable boutique downstairs! It's a quaint spot, and the service was excellent!


Great cut at a good price. It's worth the little extra cost to have an appt., and the same stylist competently, and knowingly, cut your hair the way you like it.

Love this place! Can’t wait to have Valerie Ellis use her magical hair cutting scissors on my over grown mess. Looking to shake things up a bit. Valerie, are you ready?

Hi guys!
Valerie, I just wanted to say that my hair color is amazing!!! The new thing you tried is awesome  I LOVE IT!!!

I scheduled an appointment for a facial, dermaplane, and chemical peel with Katie, at the recommendation of a friend. Not only was I completely satisfied with the service I received, but the salon and boutique are absolutely adorable. I was able to completely relax and it was very quickly obvious to me that I had made the right choice. Katie was very professional and knowledgeable. She was also very friendly. I love a salon/spa that is comfortable without being pretentious and quaint without feeling cheap, and Sign of the Tymes really fit the bill for me. I felt like the pricing was fair for the quality of service and amount of time she spent with me. I left feeling relaxed and radiant after scheduling my next appointment.

I’ve had some bad haircut experiences, so I’m picky about who touches my hair.  I’ve been coming to A Sign of the Tymes for many years and love it.  The salon is in a lovely old house with loads of character.  My hair stylist knows just how to cut my hair and my husband’s.  Everybody is friendly, plus there is a little boutique downstairs that I can look through while my husband is in the chair. I almost always find something adorable and affordable there.

Badly needed a haircut and went into Sign Of The Tymes with pictures of the look I was hoping to get. She nailed it! The staff is warm & friendly and the atmosphere is very comfortable as well. I’ll be back! Best colorist and stylist in Indy! – Valerie is the best colorist in Indianapolis. I appreciate her candor and professionalism when advising me about styles that would do well with my hair type and face shape.I have been a longtime customer and have never been let down.  10/11/2012 As a long time customer (20+ years) I can’t give ASOTT a higher rating. The staff are extremely professional and friendly. My wife and I highly recommend Val and her salon!!

The unique set-up and eccentric feel of the salon blew me away!!! I had a shellac manicure/pedicure and two weeks went by–not a single chip in any nail!!!! They made me feel welcome, focused on me and reminded me that it was my time to shine.. I left feeling flooded with self esteem and I will never get nails done by anyone but their awesome STAFF!!!! Thank you!!!
