What a pleasant break from the norm. This salon is in an historic house in Pleasanton and whomever decorated it, they did a fantastic job. My stylist was Katie Tavres - what a wonderful young lady. At first, she had a barrage of questions and it seemed odd but, after a while I got it. She wanted to know how I wear my hair so she could do the cut around my bad habits. So, another bad habit I have is cutting my own hair. When I am at my desk and, if my bangs won't stay out of my eyes, I go a cut my bangs. I'm a technical writer and not a stylist so you can imagine what they looked like. But, she worked around my styling snafu and fixed it all up. I greatly recommend Katie for her styling and coloring expertise. And, let's not forget how important conversation is when you're at a salon for hours. Although Katie is young, (and I am not) she was able to keep me engaged with some pretty interesting conversation. Thanks Katie – I’ll be back.
I must say I am delighted with this salon! I just moved to the area and needed a new stylist. It's a little scary to find someone else after being a customer at another salon for over 15 years. I was looking for a change in my style and color, and totally trusted Armida's recommendation to add ash blond highlights to my brunette/grey color. I love the new cut, and especially my new color. You really know it looks great when you get lots of compliments from family and friends! Not only would I recommend them for their expertise, but also how warm and friendly everyone is. You feel like part of the family! Next visit, I'll have to try the coffee!
My wife had her hair "done" at a fancy salon last week and came home crying. After looking online at hair stylists in the area one name kept coming up. I called Chris and explained the situation and after telling me what a great husband I was she made an appointment for my wife to see if she could help. When my wife came home she was her happy self so I decided to try Chris also. Her hair cuts are the best I've had and the level of courtesy she shows is unique in today's world-I feel as if she has been a friend for years. Chris is so refreshing in today's hurry-up world. try her, you will be very happy you did! My wife is SOLD too!
