2006-01-16 20:20:41   How much is a haircut here? Is it a better value than Hair Factory Too? —ApolloStumpy


2006-01-16 21:54:32   $35 for a cut when I was there last week, and ::shrug at second question —JesseSingh


2006-01-19 17:31:00   Got my hair cut there a few weeks ago. Awesome place, very hip and entertaining. —AbbyLawson


2006-02-09 12:49:04   I really enjoy the atmosphere, and it is the only place that I have found that can cut mens hair when long. —JeffPitel


2006-03-24 17:45:09   The atmosphere is pretty cool, the haircut was pretty good, but I'm a big fan of the haircolor. If you're not sure what you want, but you have an idea and can sort of explain it, the colorist will be able to figure out exactly what you want, which is what I got and it's awesome. —AndreaPasiliao


2006-04-08 18:43:37   I get my hair cut here because it looks good for a while. Lets me go 2 months between cuts and not look like a bum. Plus Jerry is a big loveable haircutting teddybear of a man. I recommend hugging him. —ZacMorris


2006-04-11 00:05:03   Wait so allow me to get this straight; you hug men at a place called "The Style Lounge"? —AndrewBanta


2006-04-11 03:34:14   Not only do I hug them, I allow them to massage my head with amazingly awesome hair products. The head rubbing from the shampooing and application of hair products alone is worth the $40. Best damn head rub in Davis. —ZacMorris


2006-04-26 14:08:45   I got my hair cut yesterday & I love it. It's $50 for a hair cut - they dry & style it, too. I hear Leslie is great at up-do's. —EmilyBlake


2006-07-10 02:23:04   I've been going to Jerry & Co since last November when I was lured in by a coupon (as was many of my co-workers at Bistro). Before coming to the style lounge I had been driving back to Cupertino so my Vietnamese Barber could take care of me. Thought a bit more pricey, The Style Lounge has never left me less than satisfied and is worth every penny. Great service. —AlvinTsao


2006-08-02 19:49:09   i just got my hair done at the STLYE LOUNGE today, and let me tell you...it was an experience. the stylist are awesome and so is the lounge itself. i recommend it to everyone. —MariaPedroza


2006-08-02 21:06:12   I got my hair cut there and got compliments from tons of people. I'm definitely going back to see Jerry again. —AmyZimmerman


2006-08-10 13:50:33   they do a great job! a bit out of my price range, though. and i've found you really have to speak up adamantly with jerry; he can be a little pushy. he's also stated that he can never do the same thing twice, but then again has he ever made a bad choice? —AnsateJones


2006-09-13 15:34:32   Honestly, I've been getting my hair died since I was 15 and I got the best highlight and color of my life here. I am definitely coming back. I have long hair and a cut, color, and highlight was around $160 (including tip) —RachelCakes


2006-09-14 00:53:03   For a haircut, it's a bit over-doing it. If you're looking for a haircut go to Razor's Edge. This place is great though if you need it styled for something. It's just pricey compared to the standard $12 cut. —AndrewBianchi


2006-09-27 18:59:34   I went to The Style Lounge this week because of the comments on Davis Wiki and I am so happy with my haircut! I got it cut from shoulder length to very short and I brought in photos of the style I wanted. Hannah did a great job emulating it; she really looked at the photos and took her time (about an hour!), checking with me to see if it was what I wanted. I definitely recommend it if you are interested in getting an actual haircut instead of just a trim. —EricaSmith


2006-10-09 22:07:38   My wife went to their new location on G Street, and had her hair cut by Katie. She loves the job they did (and she'd not often happy with the haircuts she gets)! —MattJurach


2006-10-11 16:54:08   WOW!!! Definately the best looking staff I have ever seen in the Sacramento region, makes going there very easy and pleasant. Jerry is great, and Marissa had me looking as good as her. I'm definately a regular now!!! Thanks Jerry —JoshuaHan


2006-10-30 01:52:57   The Style Lounge is GREAT! The place has a fun and youthful edge to it and is great for men, women, students, and kids. Jerry is great, lots of fun, knows how to have fun with your hair. Really nice people, great service, totally worth going here! —TaylorLastname


2006-11-06 21:53:41   i got my haircut at the style lounge and i love it! they did a great job! —MeganFeeney


2006-11-18 17:25:32   It's just paradise. Jerry is wonderful and to be pampered by Ashley and Marissa makes it worth every cent. I may have to start getting my hair cut more often just so I can go back sooner. —TimMatthews


2007-01-01 20:47:25   Great haircut BUT Jerry is rude, both to people whose hair he's cutting and to his staff. —GreenThing


2007-01-28 13:29:55   Haha, the first time I met Jerry I was a bit stunned by his bluntness (but appreciated it too). It's just how he is, and I rather have someone tell me like it is than blow smoke up my ass. If I wanted a stylist/barber to agree with everything I said or just nod in agreement without really listening I wouldn't come here. He has an opinion of what he wants to do to my hair, and more than not, I disagree (good ideas, I'm just relatively conservative with my hair) but at the very least it gives me something to think about. Often times my haircuts start with one of the lesser experienced stylists starting me off, and while this would drive the control freak in me crazy, I know that at the end I'll be more than satisfied under Jerry's watchful eye. I pay more for a haircut here than I ever have (about 10 more), but I don't have to be worried about the quality of the haircut (plus the occasional freebie for being a regular curbs it too). I'd say something about the personal attacks (you don't have to like a place, but there's no reason to insult someone on that level) found on this page and other wiki pages, but we all know that's kind of beyond any realistic expectation. —AlvinTsao


2007-02-08 17:25:24   Great place to get a hair cut. very cool stmoshpere and cute girls that work there which i never a bad thing. I had a great experience and will go there from now on. —JamieWebb


2007-03-03 13:42:39   Leslie is wonderful. She did such a great job with my new style, didn't waste time, and I hear she's a really good colorist as well. Highly recommend The Style Lounge. —JillWeinstein


2007-03-11 12:44:38   I would not recommend the Style Lounge because the stylists are arrogant without being worth the money. I had a haircut with Jerry recently and he took two hours to cut my hair! He had overbooked the appointments and he was running around, pretending to "listen" to me, and promising to make me "sexy." He did neither, much to my dismay. I have very thick hair but it looks like I never got a haircut. He failed to give me a style. He added some layers and pronounced my haircut finished. I am going to start getting my haircut in Berkeley and I feel like I wasted $45 because I'll need another cut to redo Jerry's failed attempts to cut my hair. —MeganAhmed


2007-04-18 18:44:04   Unfriendly, very rude and not helpful at all. When I went in I had an appointment! They over booked ( Not my fault) and I was treated as if my business was an annoyance! I also witnessed another girl who had made an appointment and they started her hair cut but refused to finish it(not kidding)because the hair dresser needed to leave! I would have understood if it was an emergency, but she said she had to go pick up her pictures at Longs! How ridiculous is that? and............ She still charged her! —MeagnOwens


2007-04-19 15:46:14   I got my hair cut by Katie at the SL on g st, and she was awesome. She took time to talk to me about and show me what she was doing. Awesome and so worth the $40! —JuliaRoseFurman


2007-04-25 16:33:38   I got 3 haircuts by Jerry - the first was incredible, maybe the best I'd ever had, my hair is tricky to cut and he did a fantastic job. He was also friendly and attentive. The second time he was completely rude and just chopped my hair. After the third cut (second really really bad cut and second really really rude demeanor) I went somewhere else.

DavisGradStudent


2007-05-11 18:14:44   I just got my hair cut by Hannah at the G street location. $30 including wash and blow dry and she did a great job. Cleaned up my split ends and gave me a little bit of a style for much cheaper than the prices listed here. Great music too, very eclectic. Highly recommended. Because it was my first time, she gave me a 10% coupon for the next time I come in. —ElleWeber


2007-05-16 04:30:36   I REALLY dont know what all the praise is for... one of the worst haircuts ever was with Jerry. He was rude, rushed through it,and didnt give me anything CLOSE for what I asked for. I wanted stick straight hair with long layers and I ended up with a frizzy mullet!!! (no lie: my co-workers can testify). SOOOOO upset, because Ive been here twice before and had Rudy and he did an amazing job, truly the best. If you go DONT waste your time on Jerry, pick someone else to do your hair. —christinegallo


2007-05-18 00:05:57   I have only one desire and thats to make sure we correct any undesirable expierence and and make it right .Always call —Leslie dean —jerryp


2007-06-05 00:18:26   I agree with a lot of the negative comments here. There are many other good hair salons in Davis. Don't waste your money and time here. —christyspencer


2007-06-06 10:23:25   There is a new girl there by the name of Judy Le and she is great! Her hair is fabulous and she is the nicest and friendliest person I have ever met. Although she was training, she made me feel really welcomed. This place is definitely ausome because they have people like her working there! I got my haircut there and I LOVE it!!! check this place out. —JT


2007-08-24 13:28:12   Jerry's nice, promises a lot, gives out free products sometimes, creates a good atmosphere, etc., but. . . .his haircuts are hit or miss. I've had ONE haircut that I really really liked from him. The rest were mediocre. The reason I quit going is that he makes me feel unattractive while I'm there, telling me I have "problem hair" (too thin, etc). No one else has ever had a problem with it. More importantly _I_ don't have a problem with it. It won't do what he wants for "show hair", but it has always done what I want it to do. If I'm going to pay $ for a high-end cut, make me feel beautiful! He has been very good to me, though —his girls gave me free highlights (they were practicing, so they should have been free), and he's offered me wine, free products, etc. Still, the freebies don't make up for the mediocre cuts and minor insults. Sorry, Jer. I wish you the best! —JessicaRabbit


2007-09-06 23:43:01   Hey! If anyone is looking for Katie (formerly a stylist at the newer Style Lounge location 407 G st) I'm relocated. I've moved out of Davis and am now working at a salon in Granite Bay. If you want to find me for a cut or color here's the salon info: Essentials Spa Salon 8639 Auburn Folsom Rd Granite Bay 95746 (916) 791-8511 I hope I was able to contact most of my clients but in case I missed you or didn't have your contact info...well, here I am. Come see me!! —kebilardello


2007-09-17 13:38:02   I've had my hair cut here several times and have always been satisfied. The stylists will offer their own opinions freely but also do a good job of listening to your requests. As of September 2007, a men's cut is $31 including taxes. —Red


2007-09-17 19:34:10   I had a last minute haircut done by Jerry, after years of cutting my hair myself I decided to have a professional take another try, knowing that he was a bit controversial after reading this page I tried my best to be open minded. He does a sloppy job, not noticing until he was almost finished that one side was longer than the other, and oops! It's still a little longer! He also used way too much product essentially making me look like a hair hopper (to quote john waters). I was charged $55. It isn't the worst cut, he does try to force his opinion on you however. I think it's funny how some hair stylists insist on product, I know it is part of their business but I personally just wash and go and I don't want to hear a lecture... Next time I will plan ahead with a different salon. —CarrieBishop


2007-10-27 20:24:38   I adore this place and the staff! I absolutely recommend Jerry...it's worth every penny! I've only been to the location on 2nd street, and can say the place is professional with a great crazy edge! —rkaplan


2007-10-28 17:52:20   There is no better place to get your hair worked on in Davis. Cuts, coloring, stylinging, you name it, The Style Lounge does it all, and they do it the best. All the stylists there and verrryyy good, very nice, very professional, and have a very cool and unique style of there own. It doesn't matter who you are or what you want, The Style Lounge can do it. I change my hair style constantly, and I have never been dissapointed. There is nowhere I'd rather go. If you want your hair done right, go to The Style Lounge, end of story... —Austen


I went to get bangs for the first time, and Jerry had me try out this pretty sexy new stylist name Lorenzo. I would HIGHLY reccommend him, not only was he super cute, but he had a lot of technique, things i've never seen before, the haircut process was actually entertaining! PLUS...it turned out great, exactly what I described, which is weird, since he speaks primarily italian, but he got it. The man doesn't speak english but he definitely speaks hair. do it.


2007-12-16 13:52:01   Just make sure you're wearing whitey-tightys when you go to The Style Lounge, because most of the people there are pretty hot, and you don't want to look like Pinocchio when you're getting shampoo-d... —Austen


2007-12-17 23:16:20   Haha oh Lorenzo...he left for Italy on Wednesday because his grandmother was ill, but he should be back in January. My boyfriend loves getting his hair cut here because of the cute receptionists (I'm one of them) and the free beer. —marebear


2007-12-23 14:22:31   I just got my haircut done here yesterday at the G street location and I love it! I had pretty long hair and I got a short cut which I don't regret. I had Kyle cut and color my hair and he was awesome! Super nice, knowlegable about hair, and doesn't yank on your hair. He spent over 2 hours on my hair so it was just perfect. He told me how to style it and keep it up in good condition. The whole staff there was really nice. I recommend this place! —HeatherB


2008-01-10 12:00:50   I got my hair cut here twice and I love it! I have long hair and am very particular about how I want my hair cut. They did a great job and make it feel and look thicker and healthier. There's nowhere else I would ever go in Davis! I go to the G Street location and the interior design is also very awesome and unique. I have walked-in both times without appointments and they were happy to take me right away. The staff is also very friendly. I strongly recommend! —akwiat11


2008-01-20 22:58:51   Risto is the best. He is great at what he does, and he realy does appreciate his customers. —Dr.Lindsay


2008-01-31 18:31:07   "Wow" would be an understatement to how fabulous my experience was with Kyle at the Style Lounge. He gave me a exactly what I needed. I left with a cutting edge look that turned heads. He was informative, knowledgeable, and even showed me how to style my hair like a professional would with ease. I loved the music and atmosphere of the style Lounge. It has a fun trendy attitude. I can say with out a doubt I will definitely go back. —RayJohnston


2008-02-05 14:58:35   Risto is fabulous. He takes care of me and my two daughters; keeps us blonde and he provides psycho-therapy at no additional cost. My hair has never looked so goo in my life. —christinecipperly


2008-02-27 20:03:21   I've been going to Leslie for about a year and I've never had a bad cut or color. She's amazing and gave my little sister (who is basically OCD about her hair) a perfect bob. The price is comparable to what I paid in San Diego and well worth it for the positive experience. The staff is really attentive (refreshments, parking, etc.), down to earth, and fun. It's really strange to read all these negatives because I know several people who frequent and love it. —JillWeinstein


2008-02-27 20:06:03   Just realized i've already written a positive review and forgotten. Whatever. —JillWeinstein


2008-02-28 19:38:21   I really like this place, almost as good blonde highlights as you can get in SoCal and that is rare up here, let me tell you. Jerry is super nice, too. —Cuttlefish09


2008-03-05 23:42:18   I just went to the style lounge yesterday and LOVED IT!!! I have had one bad experience after the next when it comes to hair, but that all stopped when I went there. I am trying to grow my hair long and am extremely frustrated when you ask a stylist to trim no more than a quarter or an inch off and they take an inch. I saw RISTO and he is the best by far!!!! His experience definitely shows in his work. He listened to everything I had to say and did an AMAZING job. I have never been so happy with a haircut, and have never gotten so many compliments. I got 8 compliments alone yesterday, and sometimes the same people kept complimenting the hair cut because they could not believe how good it looked. I definitely recommend going to RISTO. I had an encounter with Jerry (did not have my hair done by him, but observed his work) and I would not recommend him. His work was not the best and he was very pushy. —latindancer


2008-03-14 16:32:25   I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JENNIFER. She did AN AMAZING job highlighting my hair and she gave me 10% off and 10 dollars off the price because I am a UCD student. Immediately when i walked in, i was gretted by friendly people offering my roommate and I rice crispies treats and brownies and soda. My roommate asked Jennifer for a hair consultation and she gave her a very informative one, no questions asked and was very polite and helpful about what she should do to fix her botched hair job (DON'T EVER GO TO TANGLES by the way!) She highlighted my hair exactly like I asked her to. No even better. And she cut my hair just like i wanted too. I'm not making any of this up. I would HIGHLY recommend going to the Style Lounge. This is going to be my hair salon from now on. woot woot! —Friskyboo15


2008-03-21 13:34:07   I also recommend JENNIFER. Ask for her! She took on the challenge of turning my BLACK (ew) hair back to brown and if yu know anything about hair color its not an easy task. It was a 2 day process in which she first removed my previous hair colors and then, after waiting 24 hours for the full effect of the chemicals, she added the color i wanted. She NEVER rushed which is something i have experienced at many other salons. The color didnt turn out EXACTLY how she wanted it the first time so she went back and colored my roots again to make sure it was perfect :) Like I said she took her time and styled my hair with lots of great products after she was finished. And when it was all done and over, she gave me a huge hug goodbye. I am so glad I trusted my hair to Jennifer and I know if you trust her with your hair she wont let you walk out unsatisfied. —Mclaire24


2008-03-21 16:58:48   I love the style lounge! I've recently decided to get highlights and i was majorly hesitant to do so, but once Leslie did her magic, i was so pleased! I really recommend the style lounge for all your cut, color and beautifying needs! —fffashion13


2008-04-09 20:42:04   My mom leslie works at the STYLE LOUNGE. Not only is she an amazing mom, But she does an amazing job on her clients. No one i have ever known has left there unhappy with what she does. Im not saying this because shes my mom. Im saying this because shes an amazing stylest, And i know what she can do. jerry is also an awesome stylest. Yes i know there are sometimes when he is pushy, But thats because he needs to run a salon. Risto! He is soo awesome to! everyone is happy there. And you pretty much feel at home there even if your a new client. Leslie's prices are awesome. She doesn't charge BIG NUMBERS! I think everyone should go there at least once:]]] —KaiteeRae


2008-04-15 23:27:09   Everytime I want to make a drastic change with my hair, I go to Jerry. Recently, I requested to be made a blonde (I am asian with dark brown hair, fyi) and he did an awesome job! he knew exactly what i wanted, and even though my hair was very hard to work with, he wouldnt give up until i was 100% happy with the results. totally recommend! —hellokitty


2008-04-26 00:37:08   I love Risto! he is absolutely AMAZING! My friend went to him yesterday and her aunt had cut her hair. Before going to Risto, her layers were so choppy and uneven. Her shortest layer was the thickest part of her hair. Risto worked his magic and turned her choppiness into beautifully blended layers. As soon as we walked out of the salon, she received at least 5 comments on her hair that afternoon. Risto is amazing and works wonders!!! —latindancer


2008-05-08 09:04:01   I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted but I knew I wanted to make a change and Jerry made me feel really confident throughout the whole color/cut process that he would make it look good. I am so so happy with my haircut and new color, and I would absolutely reccommend going to style lounge. I like how even if you have an appointment with one stylist they all kind of help each other. —s4228


2008-05-19 09:18:23   I still think this place is the worst place to get a hair cut. I don't care how much some "people" gush about this place. —CarrieBishop


2008-05-20 12:32:20   I still love this place. I've been a loyal customer since moving to California almost 2 years ago. After entering the world of color, I've been having fun as a vibrant red-head, which is not an easy color to do for many salons! The Style Lounge is always up for the challenge, and they've kept my hair healthy and shiny! Jerry has always been wonderful to me! He's demanding of his staff, keeping high standards of work and creativity. There's a great family dynamic in that salon, and I always feel welcome and receive individual attention. —rkaplan


2008-05-21 23:07:40   RISTO RISTO RISTO RISTO RISTO RISTO!! That is all that I need to say! He is the most talented stylist I have EVERY come across. I got my hair colored by him the other day. My hair was a very dirty blonde and I brought in a picture of my very blonde hair from when I was young. He did the most amazing job ever. My hair is now a chestnut blonde and I have gotten so many compliments on my beautiful color. Risto is wonderful at listening to what you want and is just awesome all around. Those of you who have either gone to Style Lounge before and been unhappy or those who havent checked it out yet.....GO TO RISTO!! I guarantee you will not leave unhappy! —latindancer


2008-06-06 13:58:12   I came in to the Style Lounge with the worst dye job I have ever had and Jerry did all he could to fix it. Even though it took 4 hours of dying and redying to fix what had been done to my hair at a previous salon, Jerry was not content until I was. I highly recommend this place. They do an amazing job and really know how to manage hair and they will not let you leave the salon until you are fully satisfied. Worth every penny!! —jeanna


2008-06-09 16:37:22   The Style Lounge on 2nd St is awesome! I've tried a ton of hair salons, much to my unhappiness, until I finally tried out Jen at the style lounge. She was really informative, knew a lot about styling and hair, and was pleasant to talk with. She told me this trick to tackle my cowlick-ed bangs, and it works every time. Plus, she gave me the best hair cut I've received in a long while, and gives free bang trims. I'm sold!

The only downside (and this is minor) is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of seating for waiting. But they do have a lot of magazines! —ChristyMarsden


2008-06-16 09:56:48   I LOVE the Style Lounge. I never thought I'd find such a great salon in Davis, honestly. I started going to Jerry Paiz in 2004, and I didn't even realize how just fantastic he is until I left Davis in 2007. Now I live in Washington DC, a city filled with yuppy salons, but I have not found anyone who compares to Jerry. Finally, about a month ago I was visiting home (Napa, CA) and I made a special trip to Davis just so I could have Jerry do my hair! Not only did Jerry remember me after almost a year, he remembered exactly how I liked my hair and he did a great job. I'd recommend the Style Lounge over any other place in Davis, and I'd recommend Jerry Paiz over any other stylist, PERIOD! —lstewart


2008-06-24 21:32:54   Jerry Paiz is an incredibly talented hair stylist. I have been going to him for years (even before he opened his own shop) and I have never had a negative experience. Jerry has a great eye for what colors look good and his hairstyles are trendy and stylish. Even after moving to Philadelphia 3 years ago, Jerry is still the only person I trust with my hair. My co-workers used to laugh at me for not going to one of the many salons in Philly, but whenever I come back from my visits to Davis (about every 6 months) they can't believe how good my hair looks. (Maybe Jerry should just move to Philly =) ) What is even more incredible is that I can go 6 months without getting a haircut/color and not look horrible - that is how talented really Jerry is. He also is a good mentor, always trying to train and help future hairstylists. And the Style Lounge is such an experience - from the modern decor to the head massages. I highly recommend Jerry and the Style Lounge!!! —audcity92


2008-07-28 18:47:23   The Style Lounge on 2nd street has gone through quite a few hair stylists in the last two years of me coming there. I am not too sure what that says about the owners of the salon but I can say that two constant faces have been Kyle and Jessica. I have gotten my hair cut/styled by both of them and so have all my roommates. We are completely hooked. Each of us has totally different hair, that is different in lengths, color, texture and desired stytles. Yet Jessica and Kyle have been able to do all of our hair and have us be completely satisfied with it. One time I got my hair colored and was still not fully feeling it a few days latter, my stylist Jessica was more than happy to fix it to what I was looking for. I completely recommend these two, especially Jessica if you are going for a classic "I don't want my hair to grow out and show my highlights too much" look. She is really helpful for suggesting styles and has a natural touch for coloring! It can get a bit pricy here but being happy with your hair style is completely worth the extra cash. —whatithink


2008-08-03 19:44:35   Another rave review for Jennifer! I just had my hair cut by her for the second time, and she has done an absolutely amazing job once again. My hair is bone-straight and very thin, and I've got a lot of it so it tends to get weighted down and just kind of hangs there. I've been to a zillion other stylists, who never seem to know what to do with my hair to make it look good. Jennifer listened to what I wanted (short enough to give it some body, but long enough to put back easily), applied her professional judgment, and gave me the best hairstyle I've ever had in my life! So long as I am within driving distance, I will never, ever trust anyone else with my hair. :-) —JoannaHeiple


2008-08-25 18:39:36   Are they still in business? Last time I wanted to schedule an appointment I left a message (during business hours) and no one called me back so I ended up going somewhere else. —GreenThing


2008-09-13 19:35:22   I got my hair highlighted a couple times and my hair has become so much healthier!! Its amazing!! Jerry is super nice and does an awsome job! —alyssa55


2008-09-30 19:26:49   By far the worst hair salon in Davis. I have never been treated with such disrespect. Jerry, the owner, is a rude and cocky jerk who belittles his customers and employees. I had to return because of botched highlights, and Jerry said not one kind word to me the entire time I was there. An apprentice hairstylist was with him, and Jerry spent the entire time criticizing him. It was so uncomfortable! Never, ever go here! —AlexandraAnn

Jerry is a complete asshole with absolutely no regard for what you actually want and instead follows his own terrible taste which results in you having a mullet... seriously. On top of it he is really rude to his assistants which creates a very negative and uncomfortable environment. All the good hair stylist left and now it is only him and his new assistants who know almost nothing. I am never going back. —jennymarshall


2008-12-29 18:26:32   I just had my hair done by Kristen at The Style Lounge, and it was a -great- experience. Kristen was very accommodating, coming in on the day after Christmas (this particular location was actually closed) so that I could get my hair done for an important occasion. She listened to what I wanted, made recommendations based on her experience and expertise, and ultimately did a great job with my color, lowlighting, and haircut. The salon was hip and chic, and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend Kristen, and will use her in the future. The cost was more than I am accustomed to paying, but for a treat, and an experience that left me feeling pampered and confident, it was well worth it. —KendraSmith
