My experience with trying out a new stylist is so****ing I can't put into words. I mean this in a good way! (I went in for a Devacut) I arrived early and was greeted, then met Karen. She was ****m and re****uring, so I knew I could trust my hair in her hands. She would go over my hair in detail and work out where to go with it. Explained what she used and why and gave me tips on caring for curls. My hair is the kind of hair that has super curly at the top, curly with some straight pieces on the side and the hair at my nape is wavy/straight. (Overall curl type 3B) It's been a challenge to find a stylist who can cut my hair, everywhere I went they didn't listen. Karen saw my hair's true curls and blended them together. It was like magic how they all curl around with an actual shape! I finally had shape! It took time to cut and at the end, I was still shocked. She cut my hair and made it look so good. I went from long uneven layers and triangle poof to round and light soft curls. It was an amazing experience and would recommend anyone seeking true art in hair to see Karen. I can't stop shaking my hair and have to keep my hands out of it.

I must have been the last person to hear of a diva curl hair cut. After doing some research and checking reviews, I made an appointment with Karen. This is when my life changed. I always looked at my curls as a curse..until now. From the moment I walked in, I was given Karen's undivided attention. She took her time explaining the cut and ****uring me that I would not be let down. She was right..4 hours later, a diva cut, and color..I looked and felt like a million bucks. This experience was eveything to me. I genuinely enjoyed my time at TJ's. I will absolutely be returning. Thank you for helping me embrace this beautiful mess of hair I was blessed with!

Karen is an outstanding stylist with a wealth of experience.  She has cut & colored my hair for 10+ years.  When she first worked with me, my hair was thick, short & straight.  It is now long with natural waves.  She has done a superb job accommodating the challenges of my current thick & wavy hair.  Karen continually strives to expand her professional knowledge.  She attends classes on new techniques, particularly for color application & methods for cutting different types of hair.  When she learns something that might make my hair easier to maintain, she makes suggestions, but implements only what I am willing to try.  She assesses my preferences & thoroughly explains the pros & cons of using a different technique on my hair.  Karen is very personable & creates a positive & relaxed setting.  For me to remain with the same stylist for this long demonstrates her skills & talent.  I have the utmost confidence in Karen & highly recommend her.

Karen had been my stylist for many years.  She is wonderful! She keeps current with the latest techniques, styles and products to offer her clients. I get highlights and color and Karen always does a great job! TJs is very nice, offering coffee, water, and treats.  The salon also has a modern look with nice decor and often has fresh flowers.  I would like to mention that Sonia always does a wonderful job washing my hair and gives an amazing scalp massage while shampooing when time allows!

Karen is the best! I followed her here from another salon. Great cuts and fabulous colors. She knows how to push me a little beyond my "usual," but not crazy "out there." She's also VERY knowledgeable about new products and makes great recommendations for my hair and style specifically. A great stylist and a great salon!

Love, love, love the way Karen at TJ's does my hair. The color and cut techniques are always innovative, artistic and exciting. I've been going to Karen for quite a few years after her expertise was highlighted in an article about curly hair in Washingtonian Magazine's salon issue. A rare treat to find a stylist with a similar curly texture to mine, who can also style my hair smooth and straight. An excellent colorist who stays educated as to new cut and color techniques, she's a lively personality who's a lot of fun.(All at TJ's seem friendly and talented.) And Karen listens closely to what you want -- a rare trait. My latest visit not only left me with a sophistcated, easy-to-manage cut, but gave my hair oomph with a change of base color and multi-dimensional hoghlights. Like I  said, love, love, LOVE!

Karen is amazing! She gave me lots of time to describe what I wanted and she delivered! Her Devacut was exactly what I’ve been wanting for years, and no one but her has been able to do. She also did an excellent job on my color. It turned out slightly different than we thought so we even worked up a specific plan for next time. Go see Karen!

I have been going to see Karen Espichan for years, and I would highly recommend her for especially for CURLY hair and Deva curl haircuts  and coloring! No one can cut and style my hair like she dose, then I get tons of compliments after a cut. She always listens to my ideas and even when I am not sure what I want she gives me GREAT recommendations and I always leave happy! I love Karen and I will always trust her with my hair!

Karen really took her time. She explained everything she was doing and really taught me what products to use and the best way to style my extremely curly hair. The cut is amazing! I love my curly hair again.

Karen did a winderful job educating me on DevaCurl and the DevaCut. She took the time to really make sure I understood what to do when I was at home. I am very happy with the cut and style and look forward to seeing what it loks like when I do it. I definitely recommend her.
