Kyle Begin

Aug 04, 2010 - I've been to Kyle twice now on the recommendation of a client of his. I have super thick curly hair and it is VERY difficult to find someone who knows what the heck they are doing with it!! My normal experience (once you do find someone that knows what they're doing with curly hair) is that they either take a ton of hair off (um, did you not hear me when I said I wanted to grow it out??) or they give you a trim that is not well shaped because they only cherry picked a few spots to trim. Hours: Mon 11 am - 8 pm Tue-Fri 10 am - 8 pm Sat 10 am - 5 pm Sun 12 pm - 5 pm With Kyle, neither is the case. He really knows how to cut curly hair well, and he listens carefully and does what you ask. Twice now, I've gone to him to get my hair trimmed and reshaped. He really understands how to shape the hair so it grows out well. I was able to wait several months before going back, which helps keep expenses down. And I should mention that he's a very personable and fun guy to talk to as well! The salon is clean and well maintained and they always have good music on. I would recommend Kyle to anyone, but especially those with curly hair! He's great. You barely have to tell him anything and he makes you look amazing.

Lora Johnson

Apr 22, 2009 - I found Lora on here and tried her out a week ago. She is different from most hairstylists in a lot of good ways. She explained what works best with my the shape of my face before we even discussed my hair. She always discussed things first and checked with me to make sure that I had the same expectations before proceeding. At all times, she explained what she was doing and what the result would be. I appreciated that she involved me so much in the process. Everything she suggested was exactly what I had in mind, so we really clicked. My curls are back in full force! It's about a half hour drive from Eagle Rock where I live, but it was worth it. I got a great cut and am really happy with it. The only negative thing I would say, is that she conducted some personal business during my cut, which I'm not used to stylists doing. Having said that, she was extremely attentive to me and my needs and I walked out loving my haircut. Maybe she had a lot going on that day. It would only really be a negative if she hadn't given me a great cut. She is also incredibly kind and generous with her time. You can tell she really cares about her clients and that to her, the haircut can really give someone confidence to go out and kick a$$ in the world, for lack of a better expression. So, all in all, I am very happy to have found her and will be going back. One more thing. Some stylists cut your hair for the time being, meaning that they don't take the care to make the cut last for several months, so that you have to come back often, which is better for their bottom line. Lora was such a perfectionist, and made sure there were no missed areas, and said that I probably wouldn't need to come back for six months. That's what I mean when I say she is generous and really cares about YOUR needs, not just hers. She's a real gem!
