    RJ and the team at Pistashio Cut & Color are truly amazing! They work closely together and support each other to ensure a great client experience! RJ did a fantastic job with my color and provided very thoughtful options for me to choose my new fall look! He was very knowledgeable of the Aveda product line and also provided me some great styling tips and product suggestions to keep my hair looking amazing and healthy! Thank you RJ and the entire team at Pistashio! Your service and professionalism is outstanding!

    Wow! Love this place. First time there the other day and it was great. I had Steve do my hair. I came in for just a trim and didn't know exactly what I wanted so I took his advice. He took his time and it ended up looking great. I felt so refreshed after getting this cut. He was also very nice. Thanks! I will be coming back. Everyone seemed very nice there

    I have consistently received excellent haircuts from Pistacio. I’ve worked with 3 different stylists (based upon who was available when I needed a visit) and I’ve been pleased with all 3. The staff has always been pleasant and provided excellent communication and flexibility when scheduling appointments.

    I originally picked Pistachio because it was an Aveda Salon but I’ve stayed with them because of the wonderful service. Just this week I had a cut with RJ and the next day total strangers were stopping me to compliment my hair! RJ shepherded me through going grey during Covid…he listened to what I wanted and carried it off with aplomb. Always a treat to see him and the rest of the staff.

    It has been extremely challenging to find a hair salon/hair stylist that really listened and actually was able to execute the perfect hair style and color for me. I am 69 years young so as you can imagine I have had many hair stylists over the years. Unfortunately in almost all cases I was dissatisfied and I began to think that what I was asking for was impossible to achieve until I met RJ at Pistachio. He spent ample time with me for my consult and my first visit and continues to spend the time every time I visit as we have made some small tweaks. Overall, his skill set is phenomenal. I have naturally platinum blonde hair and wanted to create some depth without commiting to coloring every 4-5 weeks. He used three different colors for a partial highlight which minimized the white and beautified the overall hair color giving it the depth I was looking for. Furthermore, he spent hours on my haircut which was a chin length bob and it looks beautiful. People stop me in the grocery store and compliment me often. Just for the record I have very thick yet fine hair which is somewhat curly but he knew just how to give me a gorgeous haircut and beautiful color. I would not hesitate to recommend RJ for anyone who is struggling to find the perfect sytlist. Clearly, he fits the bill. This is by far the best color and cut I have ever had!

    My regular hairstylist moved her business into her home out in Temecula during Covid, and the next hairstylist I found gave birth to her second child and quit working, so I am in desperate need of a stable, talented hairstylist. I decided to give Pistachio a try based on their great reviews. I made my appointment a month in advance because I had an important event coming up. My 50th birthday, coinciding with a family road trip to send my youngest off to college in Oregon. A busy, stressful, emotional time in any Mom's life. I was really looking forward to a couple hours of being taken care of. I made the appointment for a cut and color and explained I have long hair with stubborn grays that resist color. Whoever took my appointment explained they would allow extra time for a consult, and my appointment would be with Ita, who was very experienced with hair like mine. Great! The morning of my appointment I got a text saying my hairstylist had to cancel, but another one could take my appointment if I could come later in the afternoon. No problem. When I get there, I am greeted by Ita (who was very sweet). I expressed confusion about my earlier appointment being with her, and she said no, it was with someone else (can't remember the name). Weird. So we sit down and I start discussing my cut and color and she says they have me scheduled for a full color, but no cut. I desperately need the cut! I've been growing my hair out and timed this appointment very specifically. How on earth did they not schedule my cut? To finalize it all, they could do a color, but no cut - couldn't "fit me in". I left in tears. I've never had anything like that happen with any beauty service, ever. So much for having my hair done for this important life event. I guess I'll just look the frazzled Mom part I feel. Thanks, Pistachio. Maybe if you choose to make an appointment here make the receptionist repeat your appointment a couple times and/or call back to make sure they got it right. Seems like someone can't be bothered to listen.

    Jordan has cut my hair twice & highlighted it once and I haven't been this happy with my hair in a decade, when I lived in Seattle. i.e., a great stylist has been hard to find. He expertly blended a bad color job done by a different salon a gave me outstanding highlights. He cuts hair With precision and confidence plus he is a genuinely nice person.

    Wow!! Is it weird to cry from happiness over hair?? I had thick coarse hair most of my life. Then chemo...then thin, breaking hair. I've gone to numerous salons in NorCal & now SoCal. My hair looked no different. I found this place through Yelp & my life changed yesterday. They did what they said they would do. I went in embarrassed at how my hair looked - looked like hay. I walked out with REAL hair!! They work magic. They are a team who care about you, the customer. I don't want to ramble on, but my hair in one sitting hasn't looked this good in years. I can't thank them enough and I will never go to another salon now that I found the one. Btw...everyone there knows what they're doing & give each other advice, opinions, etc. They are amazing.

    Wonderful, wonderful place! I live in Sonoma now and make a point to time my visits to Carlsbad so I can keep coming here. Tried other places but this is the best. Great stylists and friendly front desk
