My Wavy/Curly/ Frizzy Hair Looks Perfect! – We have a Gem of a Master Hair Cutter/ Colorist at the Magnolia Avenue Salon. My hair has NEVER looked this good. Karen Davis has her cutting craft down and impressed me with her color application . The Salon aesthetics are beautiful and I felt cared for and pampered. Thank you Magnolia Salon, My wavy/curly/frizzy hair looks perfect and everyone has been asking me "Where did I get my hair done?"
A great salon – My first experience was as a sceptical walk-in. Now it's the only salon I go to. Their service is amazing. I have dropped in with a hair emergency three times and each time they fit me in and saved the day. I also like that I can get my eyebrows waxed and nails done while I'm waiting for my color to process.
Paige saved the day! – I'm new to the area and hadn't found a new hairstylist yet. For whatever reason, I thought I could touch up my own highlights with a kit from Rite-Aid. What a big brassy mess! After researching the internet, I decided to try Magnolia Avenue Salon to fix the problem. They were very helpful, from the initial phone call to make the appointment, to the consultation and color correction. Paige and a senior stylist both looked at my hair and formulated the best way to fix it. Then Paige listened to what I wanted as the final result and confidently applied the color. The results are outstanding! My hair color is beautiful, with a few face framing highlights, and my hair texture is smooth and silky. I'm so grateful that my hair mistake helped me find Paige!
i love my hair again! – I use to love my hair. But then I started going gray and my hair became curly and frizzy after having children. Auburn hair is very difficult to match and hence very difficult to get rid of the gray. I tried many other salons and usually ended up with reddish purple hair. Not anymore. Amanda colors my hair perfectly. My cousins saw me for the first time in years and didn't even notice i was coloring my hair, and when i told them how gray i was, they couldn't believe it. Amanda also uses the Keratin treatment on my hair which has taken out the frizz and awkard wave and makes my hair incredibly easy to style (i usually just wash and go). One tip...book your appointment atleast 4 - 6 weeks ahead of time. I do this religiously and i have never had to wait for my appointment (which was not the case at other salons). I love this salon and I love my hair again!
Listen to my review! – I looked on-line and saw many high ratings for the salon so figured I could be assured that I would recieve great service. Then I called to book an appointment and from there it was all down hill. Booking should not be that difficult.Then I recieved a confirmation and arrived and then was told I had arrived on the wrong day and time. I was originally booked with Amanda. Her mother stepped in, who is the owner and said she would take me instead if I could wait a while. I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach but my roots were totally grown out and my hair was in need of a good trim. I had plans for the night. A first date. The total atmosphere was chaos. I was very uneasy when Amanda and her mother Karen seemed to be at each other. As my touch up was setting I tried my best to get lost in a magazine. it took 7 magazines cover to cover to be noticed again. Then I finally was washed by a very nice woman and set over in a chair to await Karen's arrival. She had left the salon for some reason, maybe lunch. Then she scoffed at my previous haircut and offered to "relieve" me of the bulk of my hair. She cut a huge hole in the back of my hair. It will take at least a year to recover my thickness. I think the left is considerably shorter than the right side. I am certain that I asked that she not cut my bangs too short. They are above my brows! Not stylish in the least. To top this all off, my roots are purple in the sunlight. I never want to see those crazy people again or I would go back and ask for my money back.
Impressive – I am a stylist/colorist who is not impressed with a lot of salons in Northern California. Magnolia Ave. is one of the exceptions. All of the staff is required to produce perfection in both coloring and cutting. Vicki and Karen are always attending/teaching classes here in the United States.. For this reason I have sent my own clients to them.
Karen Davis Exorcised 10 Years of Gray – I love these guys. As a man in his 50s with curly hair, my business and professional image is dependent on a great haircut. Having curly hair makes it difficult to maintain the "edge," as a bad haircut quickly devolves into my having "wings." It's a fine line between a natural look and a Woodstock revival. So when Karen Davis cut my hair I was really impressed and relieved to look in the mirror and see chic.
The second pleasant surprise was that when I asked her about color she made it easy, natural, and well blended. My hair is now in great shape, soft, and well, "happening." I went out for drinks after with two female friends who lavished compliments on me and on Karen.
Guys, this is the place to go. 5 stars. See you in 4 weeks, Karen!
Fabulous Cut & Color from Magnolia Ave Salon – Having been a former hair model, I have had MANY different hair styles/highlights & colors, and I am very particular when selecting a hair salon. I have just had my 1st experience at Magnolia Ave Salon, and KAREN DAVIS DID A MAGNIFICENT JOB ON MY HAIR, with great highlights & a fabulous new cut -I WOULD NOT HESITATE to recommend her salon to anyone - her staff is professional & friendly, the salon's atmosphere is lovely - it was a definite 5 star experience & am so glad to find a salon in Marin that has a clue as to what good styling & color is all about - MAGNOLIA AVE. SALON IS THE BEST!!
Russ Bard Best Hair Cut and Color in Marin – I have been going to Russ for over 15 years. I went from having old fashioned hair cuts to modern cuts. The color always looks natural. He always listens to what you want and will let you know if that will work. I never feel rushed when I am there. You never leave until every hair is in place. Thanks for always making my hair look so wonderful
Fabulous Hair! – It is not easy to style my graying, longish, curly hair - but Amanda made it fabulous! She listened carefully to the look I wanted - professional but feminine - and patiently crafted it - cut, color, not to forget tinting and shaping eyebrows. What was dfistinctive about the experience was not only the great results - (I keep getting compliments) but the attentiveness and care she showed made the whole experience in this gorgeous salon one I am eager to repeat. (Also they use and sell my favorite hair stuff, Kerastase!)
