I had a great experience!! – I just wanted to comment on the latest review. I recently went to Karina, and brought my daughter in a few days later for a cut. My friend goes to her, and have for years, and have only spoken highly of her. I got a great cut, and she was very sweet and professional. My daughter who had a fear of getting her hair cut, had a great time. Karina is very good with kids. She now keeps asking, when we are going back to visit? I cant imagine, why this client didnt go back and had Karina fix her hair. Dont think that would have been a problem! It sounds like an honest mistake.
I will definitely go back to Karina, and so will my daughter!
I was looking for someone to give me a nice haircut online, and because of the great reviews written about Karina, I thought I should give it a try. The result was the worst hair cut ever, I asked for layered hair and she layered only on one side and now seems unven, everyone tells me its obvious and they laugh when I tell them I paid $60 for it. Avoid if you could. and I am sure the people who are posting those comment are her friends and family.
I'm very sorry to read you were not happy with your hair cut. I wish you would have called me, and given me the opportunity to fix your other side, I would have been glad to do that! I have been doing hair for over 10 years, and have had very few redo clients, but it happens, we can all have an off day. I'm sorry you felt the need to post such a comment, and that you paid for a cut you were not happy with. Unhappy clients makes me very unhappy!
amazing haircuts by karina – I am someone who has been very cheap about haircuts until I had my haircut at Pomona with Karina. It was worth every penny. She really took the time to ask me what I wanted. She styled it in a way that was exactly what we talked about. My hair style now is so easy to maintain and yet still looks good. She did magic on my hair, that's all I can say.
I'm getting all my haircuts by Karina because it was the best cut I've ever had.
Finally! Look forward to every haircut - Karina is an angel. – For years I was terrified of getting my hair cut, it's curly sometimes, straighter at others, grows at odd angles...I'd had some classic intimidated to say something after and/or crying when I got home experiences.
Then I found Karina seven years ago. I remember joking that I was going to have her cut my hair for the rest of my life, because she was around the corner from my house and a sweetheart (I didn't say, but thought: plus what difference does it ever make so I might as well give up and stick with convenient and nice). Well it made a big difference, it was perfect, and each cut, trim and color I've had since then has been also! I am in heaven. Karina never goes wrong because she treats clients the way I imagine she would like to be treated and listens to even the smallest request or new idea.
If I get different styles for summer and winter (hats, humidity...) or a slight variation in color just for fun, Karina remembers the one from six months ago, even several years if I've made a big change and want to go back! She knows my hair and treats each client equally as an individual as far as I can tell.
Something I dreaded has turned into a wonderful treat. The salon is tiny, lovely, relaxing, with quiet music that turns out to be from a great collection if you care to pay attention. Too often we can't stop talking though. We have gotten to know each other's families (mine in person and Karina's through stories), and look forward to news. Even the the other Pomona clients seem to be particularly nice people and the tiny shop (one other chair) occasionally gets into a conversation. For those who don't like to chat, I've seen sleepy silent faces in the chair, taking a look when Karina asks for an opinion, and looking as happy as everyone else when they finally get up...which usually means as thrilled as I am.
Treat yourself to a great haircut, a wonderful little sanctuary, and an hour with a young woman who cares about her work and cares about others.
stylin' & smilin' – I have been a client of Karina's for at least 7 years now. I began going to her after I heard she was excellent with curly or wavy hair, but I have also referred friends with straight hair and they love going to her, too. She is great at coming up with ways to update or change my style and she's also a good listener when I have ideas or concerns. Both Karina and Laurie are very friendly and easy-going; Pomona is not an intimidating kind of salon. After my appointments I always leave looking great and feeling great.
Fantastic – Karina's been cutting my hair for about four years now and I won't let anyone else near it. My hair is thick and difficult to cut and in the past I've had some people mangle it. But when I walk out of Pomona I always look good ... at least I know my hair does.
Best Hair Salon in Brooklyn! – If you're in need of a new 'do, be sure to visit Pomona Salon and ask for Karina. Every time I go, I let Karina work her magic. She always surprises me with a beautiful cut and color that makes me feel beautiful. Every time I leave the salon, my hair feels silky soft and I feel much younger, prettier and refreshed. In all the years I've been going to Karina, I've never gotten the same hairstyle twice... she is creative, imaginitive and great fun to spend an hour with! I've referred all of my friends to her. Karina can work wonders with straight hair like mine and she specializes in curly hair too! This stylist has it all... give her a try!
Karina Knows Hair! – If you are in need of a great style, color & conversation too, then you have to check out Karina at Pomona Salon in the heart of the hip & trendy, Park Slope, Brooklyn! The salon is convenient to transportation, is very quaint & always personal. They don't have blaring music or a wild atmosphere. They do have a very charming & relaxing retreat for all your senses. Karina is very good at listening to your desires for a new look, while offering her best recommendations. I haven't seen anything that she cannot do with hair, from edgy to professional, thick or fine, curly to pin straight (like mine), she can create the style you desire, at very reasonable rates too! Karina is a great stylist who gets to know her clients & their families & best of all, she loves what she does & it shows! Give her one try & you'll be hooked!
Great Stylist. – Pomona is a very charming salon in a great area. Its small and cozy, so I always feel relaxed when Im there. I have been going to Karina for over 7 years. I followed her from Aveda, and I really look forward to my appointment. She always makes me feel like a new person. She is a great listener and very fun to talk to. Karina has curly hair like me, and knows how to give a great cut that works for my hair. I was never able to find anyone, who knew how to cut curly hair before. She gives great advise on styling products, and how to style curly hair. The colors she uses are gentle, and makes my hair feel great and shiny. Im now addicted to highlights. I refer my coworkers and friends to her, so now we keep up with each other through Karina
Karina styles your hair like no one else! – The Pomona Salon is a wonderful salon. Both hairstylists are very personal and extremely skilled. I have been going to Karina for many years and feel amazing every time I walk out. Karina is able to give me the exact color and cut that makes me look and feel great, without repeating the same style each time. Karina is up-to-date, cutting-edge, personal and above all, listens to what style you are looking for.
Give Karina a try, she is worth it!
