Kepare salon is nice and one of the cleanest salons I've been to. I have been going to Julie for about a decade now. I highly recommend her as a hair stylist! Julie recommended the new Kevin Murphy line for my thinning hair and its amazing! I wouldn't switch back to any other shampoo or conditioner! I always walk out of the hair salon with 100% satisfaction!

Love the look and feel of Kepare. Love that it is always fastidiously clean and upscale in its look. Love that all the stylists all smile and give a warm welcome. Pablo, the owner is a rock great hair...doo's, entertains you with his kindness and hilarity , and welcomes you like you are his only client. Greatest salon EVER!

Pablo is hands down the best stylist I've ever had. After 40 years of bad haircuts, I'd all but given up on finding a decent stylist. Then my sister set me up with an appointment with Pablo as a birthday gift. What a difference he's made! After my first cut and color, I had clients and family members tell me I looked 10 years younger. I've told Pablo he'd better never retire, but I won't go to anyone else.

Pablo knows how to make you laugh and how to color your hair. If you are looking for someone to make you look and feel good, look no further.

I had the same hairstylist since I was 11, but was forced to find a new stylist when she died. I was referred to Rahni by a friend and she's been my go to person for more than a decade. Wouldn't go anywhere else! She understands my hair, isn't afraid to tell me something won't work and really listens to my feedback.

I have been seeing Jen for 12 years. She is an incredibly talented stylist and color expert. Over the years she has given me short and long haircuts, color, highlights, and lowlights. She is very knowledgable about her craft and is honest with clients about making healthy decisions for their hair. On top of her professionalism, Jen is a kind and genuine person. I am always delighted to be in her company! I always leave the salon feeling beautiful and happy. :)

Jen is an exceptional stylist who is warm, caring, and professional. She has worked with me to improve the condition of my longer hair and has sensitively recommended great products for color, highlighting, and hair care. She is a gem and goes out of her way to meet the needs of her clients so they are delighted with the results like I am!

Jen is the best stylist and best person ever!

I have been seeing Jen for about 15 years at this point. She has an amazing talent in understanding cut and color. When I went very suddenly gray at 30, she helped me feel glamorous and beautiful. She tames my daughter's prodigious mane, and she even rescued my haircut-fearing son from continued bowl cuts at home! It would be enough if she were simply the best at her job, but she is also an amazing human being. She has a great sense of humor, is an excellent listener, and has a kind, kind heart. Over the years she has gone way past being my stylist and has become a treasured friend. Anyone who is able to spend a few hours with her should count themselves very lucky!



Kepare is the best!

There's good reason why Kepare has been so successful for years - that reason is Pablo Yee. He treats his clients, staff, and stylists with respect and true friendship. He is a real hoot, has 'em all in stitches all day long, and yet is a consummate professional -- top notch work, the salon is well organized, everything just flows smoothly.

Best colorist and hairdresser in town

Pati at Kepare in the best in town for color and haircuts. I have gone to her for years and would not trust my hair with anyone else. I always get compliments on my hair - and several strangers have even made appointments with her when I gave them her card. I would recommend Pati to anyone. She's the best. She's always full of fresh ideas, and its been great to have someone who also gets my ideas, and knows always how to cut my hair so it ""does"" what I want it to. I have never left the salon without totally loving my hair!




Karen is exceptionally talented and very professional, along with all of the other staff at Kepare.

she has styled and colored my hair (when needed) for nine years and I feel blessed to have found her.

I was not in the shop when 'this person' had her experience with Karen, however I feel this is not the first time she has lashed out at someone and won't be her last, there are many "wacked out" people walking this universe and what really scares me is she has a drivers license and could be driving next to me or you on the freeway! ......... yuk,yuk,yuk

Karen, keep your spirits up; we are proud of what you do and you are Loved.

I have been to many salons in town and this one far surpassed my expectations!

Patti at Kepare is the best. She is so fun to converse with and does an AMAZING job whether you are getting color or cut.

I highly recommend this place!

Ronnie is Amazing!!

I've gone to Ronnie for three or four years now. I moved out of state shortly after finding her and would go back every visit I made. Then I lived there for a year and went to her every three months and LOVED all that she did with my hair! She really listened to what I wanted and needed and made it look fabulous every time! We've done so many different things with my hair and each time it has fit me perfectly and has been easy for my lifestyle. It's taken me forever to find someone out here who compares, but I think I finally did. I would ask Ronnie how to do something new and different with my hair each time and she would always have the perfect solution and teach me how to do it, which not being real great at styling hair I really appreciated, especially when I took what I had learned and used at home when styling my hair - and still do! I would highly recommend Ronnie to learn how to truly take care of your hair and style it the way you want it and for a cut that you love and that works for your lifestyle!
