- Patricia Lewis
Jan 11, 2012 - I moved up to the Bay Area about 2 1/2 years ago and was very nervous about finding a new stylist. I had been going to the same stylist in San Diego for 15 years. I tried two different stylists in Berkeley and both were very nice but I just didn't love the results. After doing lots of internet research for a good stylist, I came across reviews for La Peluqueria and Patricia. I was really interested in the reviews because I have naturally wavy hair. It's not super curly but not super straight- kind of in between. I almost always straighten my hair but I thought "Well Patricia is called the curly hair expert so I'll give it a try and maybe she can help me wear my hair naturally wavy." Patricia did not disappoint me! After chatting with her for a few minutes, she made great suggestions on a cut that would allow me to wear my hair naturally wavy and it would still be a cut that would look great when I straightened my hair. She did a great shampoo, cut and then dried my hair and by the end my natural waves were beautifully defined. I absolutely love my new cut! Since my cut last week, I have worn my hair wavy, straight with a flat iron and have dried with a round brush for volume and light waves. I'm loving the versatility. Her salon is super cute and cozy and I did not have a problem finding parking but my appointment was early in the morning. I'm so happy to say that I have found my new stylist in the Bay Area. I will definitely be going back to see Patricia!
