New to Pgh, had bad experiences at other salons. Saw a woman in a restaurant whose hair I liked and she said she got it done here with Diane. I searched the salon online and read great reviews on her so I made an appointment. She sat down and spoke to me face to face and not through a mirror which I totally appreciated. She listened to what I wanted and then offered her suggestions which I took. She did corrective color with highlights and lowlights and then cut it. I have long fine hair which is difficult to cut and she did a beautiful job! My color is now so pretty and now I am the one that ppl come up to and ask where I got my hair done! Expensive but worth it because it's my hair...I tried cheap places and the results were terrible so I have learned that you cannot cheap out with your hair. Great products, also expensive but my hair is now in amazing condition so again...worth it. Park in the garage across the street so you won't need to feed the meter and make sure to book in advance as Diane is hard to get in with otherwise. I've been there 3 times now and pre-book. All in all...cool salon, sweet and talented stylist and I am a happy client.

I recommend Diane without any reservations. I have very fine, ultra-straight, thinning hair and it is extremely difficult to cut with precision. Diane gave me the most precise cut I've ever had. I can even wear my hair totally straight and it looks great. Diane, you're awesome! Thanks so much! (if you go to Diane, book well in advance. She's in high demand.)

Iv'e gotten haircuts my whole life but am only now actually happy with my hair! For the first time ever! I went to Diane and she cut my hair so perfectly that not only am I getting tons of compliments but I can fix it just like she showed me...fast and easy and I finally get compliments. She's done it a few times and each time its even better as if that is even possible. Love her, love my hair, love the salon. I got a break in scheduling as someone cancelled other wise would have had to wait for weeks to get appt. Now that I know her work, I would have waited for her!

I am very happy with the service from this salon. I have been going to Diane for my cut and color and am very pleased with the results. I have very fine hair and she knew exactly what to do for me. I have now gone to her for three appointments and will definitely be returning.
I have also received many compliments since I've been going to her!

So I searched for reviews of this place and found these. I called and requested an appointment with Diane as one of the reviews highly recommended her. I had my hair colored and cut and I absolutely, without a doubt LOVE IT. She listended, actually LISTENED to me and then made some suggestions. I had a treatment with their product line, Kerastase and my hair feels and looks healthy and shiny. Diane was alot of fun and I really enjoyed the experience. I will def be back and will be sending friends! She is worth the wait so book early as I was told she is booked way in advance.

I have been trying to find a good colorist since I moved to Pittsburgh without success, but now I found Diane!! She was recommended to me by someone that I actually walked up to and asked where she got her hair colored. I decided to give her a try and I am so thankful that I did. Not only is my color perfect every time, but she always suggests trying something new, like a new hilight or some shading to accent the cut. Now I finally get compliments on my hair and I gotta tell you...that makes me feel really good! I was warned that she is always booked so I make sure to schedule a few appointments in advance or else I can't get in. I learned my lesson once and wont do it again! The salon is beautiful, the staff friendly and I am now obsessed with the Kerastase line thanks to Diane. Go on...give her a try! you won't be sorry!

Alberta is appropriately titled salon it is definately ""modern"" from the decor to the cutting edge hairstlyes. I was able to get an appointment with Marinna the same day that I called. The receptionist was very friendly via phone, and when I arrived later that afternoon. I had 18"" hair extensions put in the day before and needed someone experienced in working with and cutting extensions. Marinna did a great job, and I was very happy with my haircut that was only $35.
I will be back for color

I have been going to Albertas for many a year now and I absolutely love it. Tina is my color and cut girl and she does the most amazing job. I used to live in Los Angeles and now I live in New York and I STILL get my hair done by Tina. I never come home with out an appointment set up. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the people are very friendly. On the off chance that I cant get an appointment with Tina I have had some equally great jobs done by the other fab ladies there. You just cant go wrong! Love it!
