Had my first haircut with gloria, in her easy to find, right off the freeway, home salon. So glad I did, she has a client for life. Repaired my previous 3 bad trim/haircuts, 2 of which were curly "experts"The worst, being hello curls,Beverly Neeland. finally after a year Gloria corrected the hole she cut in my hair, after she cut off 4 inches.Then my former fav,: salon Michelle, trimmed/cut to correct,,, IT DIDN"T(love Michelle, but think maybe my fine hair is a challenge for her) Then my colorist said ends are breaking off too bad, she had to trim some off(she's not a curly cutter, unfortunately ) I thought , my hair must have changed , the curl, is now stringy, fine waves, wearing it up all the time. Hatin my hair..Enter Gloria, cuts dry, takes her time, lets you reveiw fr/ all sides along the way.My hair feels 3 xs as thick, the tangles are gone,awesome shape, considering my cowlicks. I have my 3a curls back. Its a miracle of new hair. Really! And she charges $25.00. Are you kidding me, I almost fell over, she spent a lot of time with me. (and a very nice woman) Thank you God. Funny how good hair, can make you so uplifted.like a good workout. hahaha if your on this forum, you know what I mean.Im breaking out in the van morrison song: G_L_O_R_I_A!!!
Hi again, another "review" because I don't know how to have naturallycurly.com change the contact information listed for this salon. I just noticed that the address is totally wrong, too (older location). She's in a similar part of town though. Just make sure you get the address when you make your appointment!
I wrote a review of Gloria at Salon Hermosa and realized the phone number listed for her salon is NOT correct. The number to reach her is: 1-858-354-4004. Hope that helps anyone trying to find her!
I have been going to Gloria for 6 years and she gives the best haircuts ever! Gloria has naturally curly hair and she specializes in all types of curls and ethnic hair. I have seen clients ranging from anywhere between 2a-c hair up to 4 a-c. She cuts my hair dry which I love because I keep my length that way, but she will cut it wet if you like to where it straight a lot. Also, if you haven't had your had cut in a long time, she won't hack it all off because it's unhealthy; instead she'll give you options (ie. take off one inch now but promise to come back for regular trims so your hair can recover, etc.) She recently had a baby and closed her salon and I was so worried about my hair future (LOL!) but then she converted her garage at home (Linda Vista- right off of the 163 Genesee exit) into a cute mini salon offering hair and facial services. As a result, she only charges $25 for a cut! Gloria is really flexible with her cutting approach- she's not set on one method and really listens to what YOU want (ie. cutting dry, wet, damp, etc). She will cut your curls differently if you have one section, for example that is more like 3a curls and another that is 2b. I have referred many wavy, curly and kinky haired adults and kids to Gloria and they have never been disappointed. No more going home in tears realizing that your "trim" became a major cut because the stylist wasn't familiar with curly or textured hair. If you are looking for a glamorous very chic salon, this is not for you. If you are looking for a fabulous and affordable cut from a lovely woman, then you are in luck!
