A nice change but not dependable. My 1st visit to Vail was 8 on a scale of 1-10. Angela did a great job though not exactly what I?d asked for. I will say she did great with my long, very thick Greek hair. But by the 3rd visit, I?d had enough. I had realized that she just keeps suggesting highlights until you agree instead of trying to just do the one you ask for, and color was always left on my facial skin. There were always several interruptions, even walk-in clients. My last Burgandy "deposit" came out bright pink the day before my vacation in Cancun. After later realizing she had not only charged me full price (she had been giving a discount that added up to a more realistic price) but had overcharged me, I thought the nervous laughter at my generous tip suddenly made sense (I hadn?t yet realized my hi-lites were neon fuchsia). I think Vail is fine for a novel experience but not for a serious place to put your trust in.
One Talented Hairstylist!!!. It's easy to get a haircut but not so easy to find an artistic hairstylist. You know that person that can look at your hair and instinctively know what would look best on you. This is what I look for in a hairstylist, I want a stylist that makes me look hot!!! Angela is that person. She is so talented and lots of fun. For me it was a real search finding a stylist that did a good job, and for awhile my hair just didn?t look that great. Now, thanks to Angela, I look amazing and receive compliments all the time. I highly recommend her! So if you want style, get hooked up by giving Angela a call -->> (408) 202-9537
Need an Awesome Hairstylist. Finding a Talented and Artistic hairstylist amongst the hundreds here in the Bay Area has been a real challenge for me. I haven?t had a good cut and color since my last hairstylist relocated to Southern Cal. that is until I meant Angela at MG Image, aka Vail hair salon in downtown San Jose. Full of personality and happy energy, Angela has very much impressed me with her ability to help me create my perfect look, for which I have now received so many compliments! It feels so good to know now that my search for the perfect cut and color is over, and she?s not even planning to relocate to Southern Cal.! So guys and gals if you?re in search of the perfect cut and/or color, give Angela a call, you?ll be glad you did. I sure am!!!
Best stylist ever!!!. Angela has been cutting my hair for years. I tend to let months go by between hair cuts and have gone to different stylist that have complimented the stylist who had cut my hair previously ...ANGELA... I live in the Sacramento area but have not found anyone that can give me the look that I want. Angela will listen to the discription of what I'm looking for and then make suggestions and then WOW it's a done deal. Whether it's a sassy look or classy one Angela'a the one to give you whatever it is that you are looking for. You'll find her at MG Hair Salon 170 S Market St San Jose Ca.95113 or give her a call at 408-287-8245. The trip is well worth it!!!!
WHERE IS ANGELA?!?!?!?!.
CALL ANGELA NOW!!!! ***NEW NUMBER*** 408-202-9537
Unfortunately the Vail Concepts Salon shut down so WHERE IS ANGELA?! Well, don't worry I've found her. She has relocated to the MG Image salon near the Fairmont and right next to The Grill. Needless to say, THANK GOD. MG Image is located at 170 S Market St San Jose, CA, 95113 and it is BEAUTIFUL there and very professional. You can contact her to make an appointment at 408-202-9537.
Angela is the best! I have had many bad experiences in other salons but I've been with Angela for so long that I'm thinking... what bad experiences? I remember braving other salons bringing a picture of what I would like my hair to resemble and they make the same thing a tired, boring grandma haircut. But i found Vail's ad in the Wave Magazine and CitySearch.
Having her cut my hair is always a great experience. Not only is she a wonderful person to be around, but her haircut and coloring skills are AWESOME! You know why I know this? Whenever I step out of the salon with a fresh hair cut and color, I turn heads! I'm getting compliments left and right! :DD I feel soo good about my haircut that there's an extra bounce in my step. Never a boring hair cut. If I feel edgy, she'll give me edgy. And if I want to look professional, she'll give me a serious hair cut. She is so versatile! I love love love it.
GUYS don't be shy. She gives a great man cut as well.
Go call her up right now and go to MG. You can even go next door and eat at The Grill's sweeeet patio and have a drink. Cheers!!
John and Leslie have moved from Vail
(which apparently no longer exists).
The new address is:
Hair Color Salon
54 West Santa Clara st.
San Jose, CA 95113
New location has available street parking, and is only a few blocks from the old #30 Post Street local.
Exceptional service and attention to detail are the norm with both John and Leslie. I've never been disappointed.
Best Salon!!. I have to say that my experiences at Vail Concepts in downtown San Jose have been great!! I have been to so many other salons around the region (from all of the Aveda Salons to you name it) and Angela has been the best stylist and colorist I could ask for. She listens to what you have to say, makes recommendations and delivers results! I have been extremely pleased each and every time...and also get many compliments afterwards :)
Angela has left the building!.
Important to know, Angela is now at MG Images, 170 S Market St, San Jose, CA
408-297-7155. She gives great hair, has a great personality, and by the way is very easy on the eyes. I am a loyal customer, never disappointed after 6 (or more?) visits, and I have REALLY hard to deal with hair. She is the bomb!
innovative and service-oriented. At first, I thought the reviews here were exaggerated. However, I found them to be true. Leslie cut my hair exactly as I've wanted and more. She used innovative techniques to make my layered haircut a little different but not radically different. She was really sweet and listened to what I wanted. She took her time with me and made sure that I was comfortable during the cut. Leslie even styled my hair that got me numerous compliments later that day. They even validated my parking up to 2 hours! I highly recommend Vail Concept and Leslie!
Leslie always gives my stubborn hair a great cut. I'm a young guy with naturally wavy hair and a pretty wild cowlick toward the front. If I let my hair grow out naturally-- or with a super-cuts style cut-- I have to part it to one side and deal with it, but Leslie gives it enough texture and short styling that I can maintain a contemporary GQ look without resorting to anything extreme like tons of product or harsh chemicals. My hair looks like George Clooney's when it's short and Russell Crowe's when it gets longer... I swear. She's that good :)
