I got to the salon and Lisa was the lady who was going to get to work on my bangs. She noticed right of the bat that I had a cow lick and she then went on to give me tips on how to blow dry my bangs to minimize the appearance. She also showed me the king of brush I needed and went as far as to tell me where i can get it.

Now on to the actual trim,Lisa did a great job and even spent an extra 10mins blow drying to make sure my bangs looked perfect even though it was storming outside. Overall I think Lisa is talented and actually knows what shes doing!

My stylist was Grace and she did a great job! She listened to what I wanted but also was willing to give me her expert advice. I like that she did most of her cutting while my hair was dry...no surprises. Her demeanor was professional, friendly and attentive.

 She layered around my face in a way that makes my eyes look bigger & brighter, and my cheekbones stand out more. I am impressed. Also, I would recommend her simply for a blowout. As part of the cut I received a blowout and it is far and away the best blowout I've had since I left California.

Masako took me right away,we consulted about my color and 45 minutes later it was time to get washed and conditioned. Now here where it gets amazing not only do you get an amazing wash out the whole process of the wash and conditioning treatment is a total massage experience that leaves you in a euphoric and relaxing state. The head massage alone is worth the trip!!! Not to mention my hair color was perfect and the cut was exactly what my hair needed to look healthy.

Masako Tanaka, you are the best! After I got home, I ate blueberries while starring at my awesome new hair in the mirror for half an hour. Yes, I am pleased with my haircut.

I'm an Asian male with medium hair length and waviness. I showed Masako photos of the hairstyle I wanted, and she did just that. I asked her to teach me how to style my hair, and she did just that. I asked her to tell me of the different hair products and which ones would suit me best and WHY, she did just that. The service here is fantastic. She took great care of my hair and scalp, is a great conversationalist, and a very skilled artist. I will come back because of her.

​Best haircut I've had in years!  Tika gave me a great A-line bob that wowed my friends and co-workers.  I had an appointment for 4:30 on a Thursday afternoon, which was not a busy time.  The salon was neat, clean and relatively quiet which I appreciated. Like another Yelper said, it was a pleasant experience from beginning to end.  I would highly recommend Tika who was very thorough and detail oriented.
