Went here after a long nine months of not touching my hair. To say the least, I had that ain't so pretty straw color.
However, Vy was able to bring my hair back to life with a nice lavender touch. I absolutely loved the color. Although the purple didn't last long, it faded to a nice ash color which I still love. I highly recommend this salon. Yea, it's pricey, but if you're a new customer you get a nice discount. It's also worth every penny!
PS, they will take amazing pictures of your after hair. They are photo shoot ready. Literally. There's a backdrop and photo light.
I'm so glad I found My Stylist Salon and took the plunge to finally get balayage professionally (aka opposite of getting highlights and letting it fade LOL). Vy did my hair and she did such a great job. She's so talented, friendly and made me feel super comfortable. She is also super knowledgeable and answered all of my questions (I had lots of questions). I felt so pretty and brand new even before she started styling my hair. I've already booked with her early next year to go lighter.
As far as safety (because you know, the pandemic), this salon is very on top of it. In general, I'm a freak about cleanliness and hygiene and this salon does everything to make sure everything is wiped down (I love taking extra precautions) constantly. I noticed Vy would change her gloves out when she had to help another person (hair washing). The biggest thing here is that EVERYONE wore and kept their masks on (minus sipping drinks, which is not ideal. However, I watched like a hawk and saw that those who did take their sips, immediately put their masks back on). They also have you fill out a pre-screening form the day before your appointment and make you wash your hands before you sit down.
Thank you Vy and the other girls for their friendliness! It felt so nice to interact with other people IRL, even if for just a couple of hours.
This is my second time getting my hair done with Cadence and she did an amazing job giving me the color I had asked for. I've gotten balayages from other salons before but none of the other stylists have been able to accomplish the same level of blending and color that I look for. Cadence is super sweet and efficient. My appointments typically take about three hours. Highly recommend Cadence if you're looking to get the perfect color!
I removed my original review as the owner reached out and apologized and offered to give me 1/2 + tip refund back and offered to have me come back and she would do my root melt (which I don't thinks was done my first time on 4/9 - look at my pics) and tone my hair. I assumed she was not going to charge me but good thing I asked and she told me should would charge me. I totally understand yet I don't. She said her salon is struggling to stay open so how do I argue with that? I love supporting small businesses but if you gaslight me and say my hair turned out bad and it's my fault ? I will not be happy. Super disappointed .... I still lost $130 but now I'm stuck with my hair with my roots like nasty ! It's not even been 2 weeks and the receptionist Carmen tried to say it's cause my hair grew. Please be cautious if you're going to come here. I will be letting all my colleagues know about my experience here.
The highlights are nice but no special treatment that was worth almost $500. It made my hair so sticky every after taking a shower. In short, it dried my hair. I struggle combing it every time it's wet :(. Also, for the cost, I wasn't asked patiently what I really want for my hair. I mean, I expect a high standard treatment with this very expensive highlights. 🙁 I won't coming back.
CADENCE MY GIRL. I went from dark ass brown at the base (virgin hair from growing out) to ashy beige to CURRENT ASHY BEIGE BLONDE.
I literally just come in and let her do her thing because she knows what I like- LIGHT.
I've been coming to her for YEARS and she does not disappoint. Cadence is EFFICIENT, FUNNY AF AND does an amazing time every single time.
When I found out that hair salons were reopened, I drove the hour from San Francisco to San Jose to get my hair done by Jen (color and haircut) back in October 2020. I got babylights in the color, "mushroom" per Jen's advice since this newbie couldn't figure out what color would look best. I was shocked at how beautiful my hair turned out! Not because I didn't expect my stylist to be this good, but because I couldn't believe my own fine, flat hair would look this good!
It's March 2021 and I am STILL getting compliments on my hair color. I got my best friend to drive from SF to San Jo to see Jen after she saw my hair!
While I was getting my hair colored, I was watching the other ladies at work. Honestly, I felt a little intimidated coming here as I'm kind of a tomboy and these ladies have their makeup and hair on point. BUT you know you're in great hands because you can tell they are detail-oriented and quick professionals. If you're thinking about whether or not to get your hair done here, YES, just book your appointment already! Thanks Jen, can't wait to see you work your magic on these locks again! 🙂
I am a new client, and I just got my hair done by My this morning, and I absolutely love it!! Shoutout to all the girls at My Stylist, they are so talented. I wanted to lighten up my previous balayage that I got done at another salon in LA a couple of months ago, and My really took it to the next level.
I wasn't sure how my hair would lighten because I have a lot of hair and my previous balayage was kind of brassy, but wow I'm super blonde and ashy now! The whole process took about 3 and 1/2 hours for me, and Jenifer also cut my hair at the end. She did an amazing job evening out my previous choppy and uneven layers. I asked for a blunt cut with texture to remove some of the weight off of my hair. It came out beautifully and my babylights looked soo good even before Jenifer curled it.
Amazing work! Love that everyone was so down to earth, friendly, and easy to talk to. I came in not having too high of a standard because I know how hard it is to lift hair color, but wow, I can definitely say My Stylist exceeded my expectations.
I also love how the girls do not pressure you into buying their products. My was very honest and genuine about how to maintain my hair at home. She even advised me against buying Oribe for the first time until I tried out their other products (Also because Oribe is not cheap).
Will continue to come back to My Stylist to get my hair done as long as I'm still in the Bay Area. Their price might seem hefty but it is worth it, and you do get what you pay for.
P.S. My got me a free drink from Hub's Coffee (Ube White Chocolate) and it was soo good! Thank you!
