    It was my first time here and Pooneh was my stylist. I came into the salon wanting a soft shag. As most people do, I showed her a picture. She then asked about my daily hair routine, how I wear it normally. She educated me politely about the hairstyle I wanted would require a lifestyle I don't have. I don't have time to blow dry and curl. I have naturally wavy hair and I either wear it in a bun or air dry my hair. She was the expert and I took her advice. She spent time on my hair, she walked me through crucial steps to make sure i was comfortable with lengths she would cut. She was skilled in her craft and I appreciated her thoughtfulness when it came to my hair. She gave me the BEST blow out I have ever had. I have been to many high end salons in San Diego and the way Pooneh treated me and my locks was the among the best experiences I have ever had. I left that salon confident and feeling beautiful. I am so happy that I took her advice with my new cut. I received so many compliments about my hair. People even asked where I got my haircut and told me I should keep going back to Pooneh. Thank you Pooneh for teaching me about hair and lifestyle. I appreciate your honesty and care! I'll definitely be back in your chair!

    Brought my husband here to try a new stylist. Nice experience, friendly staff at the front offering refreshments. Loved the energy in here but would be open to trying a different stylist. Probably won't return due to the distance from our house but was a nice experience the one time.

    My hair was absolutely destroyed by Gina. I wrote a long review on Google and the salon hid it. I hope consumers know that businesses have the ability to hide any reviews they find unsavory. This was a thinning shears hack job. My hair has holes in it, is 1.5 inches longer on the right side than the left, is thin and stringy and knots up because she slashed through it so excessively with thinning shears. I'm still healing from this horrid experience. She was also cold and rude, and very presumptuous. This salon only has 5 star reviews so you can imagine how many bad reviews they hide. Beware of their "perfect" reputation.

    Just finished up my first appointment with Kyla! She was very knowledgeable and kind. She helped me achieve the look I was wanting while also keeping the integrity of my hair. She was great, and the salon was beautiful!

    I went yesterday to get my hair cut. My hair is shoulder length. I just wanted it cut a little more blunt to fix my damaged pieces. I am left with a horrible haircut. I am so embarrassed to look in a mirror. They did their best to fix it with a different stylist in which I am so grateful for. But I am so sad that I have to live my life with this hair cut. I have been stripped of any self confidence. I am hoping to invest money into extensions to add confidence back into my life. I just want to cry. I am so devastated. I look like a member of the Beatles with this haircut and extensions are the only thing I have left to try to add confidence. I do NOT recommend anyone go see June. I am so heartbroken that June cut my hair into this shape

    Summer is so talented! I’ve had so many bad experiences with stylists and was sick of it. I looked up the best stylist at the best salon and it’s been wonderful ever sense. Summer and Jen work so well as a team and they’re both incredibly professional! I generally get highlights, toot tap, and toner and it always looks amazing. I can’t wait until my next visit.Service: Highlights

    Like most it's been a year or so since I got my hair done. One thing about this salon is they are on top of communication-appt reminders, account details, tour of the salon, reviews/ways to improve etc. It was nice to be in the loop of everything. The salon itself have several stations where you could comfortably relax from the massage lounge where they shampoo/condition you're hair. It's asked guests are to be quiet in this room something I really liked. The middle area/ lounge where you can look through magazines, charge your electronics etc. The bathroom is kept very clean. My appointment was with Jennifer R. We went over my color/cut, I showed her pictures of what I wanted. Because she wanted to keep the integrity of my hair, we decided to keep it a solid color without doing any highlights. I appreciate her honesty, not being in the chair for too long. I've received so many compliments on the cut/color. I feel so much better, confident that I don't have that orangey color and dead ends anymore. Jenn is a miracle worker. Book you're appointment with her.

    Emerging from the pandemic, I had a badly grown out balayage (I naturally have black hair) and not so pleasant results from trimming my own hair - but Courtney Elizabeth did an amazing job at making me feel and look human again. I was a bit nervous since I have Asian hair and coloring it lighter/balayage can be a challenge but she took the time to ask me questions and assess my hair, then methodically explained her process, which being in the science field, I really appreciated! She also gives the best scalp massages -who knew the skull had any pressure points- which I would pay to have an added full 15 min straight! I've been twice and each time have loved how my hair has turned out. Highly recommend!

    Let me start by saying, I have never been to such a great salon in MY LIIIIIFE! Was offered a drink when I got in, I chose the champagne because yes honey! The whole look was just amazing! I was taken care of by Hannah M. She's an absolute doll! The head massage, ensuring I was comfortable, the taking care of my eczema needs... just superb! I need to go back! Thank you all for the service
