Go somewhere else! Worst haircut of my life. I used Kisma for over three years, then owners changed, my stylist left, and the new "master" stylist did a hack job on my hair. The salon I went to to have this fixed asked me who did it to me, and after 6 months of growing my hair, it will be another few months until the damage is corrected.
Just to be clear, only one side of my hair was layered, it had been hacked to pieces in what I'm guessing was an attempt to texture my hair, and despite my asking for the length to be left, I ended up with 2.5 inch layers in the back from a one length shoulder length previous cut. I had uneven blending, a cut above my natural hairline, and uneven sides.
Great Service!! – I bring my son for massages and to have a slightly new product applied called Spider Tech tape. Stephen has been applying this tape to my son's hamstrings for the last month. It has helped him return to the field faster than we expected!! Stephen's vast knowledge of the product and his very well given massages have done wonders for my son! To add to his knowledge his customer service is very good and it's as if you have known him all your life. Kisma as whole is very good place to visit although I haven't had my hair cut there, if they hire employees like Stephen you can't go wrong spending your money here.
Teresita is the absolute BEST!!! – I have been going to Teresita for about a year. I love her work. I always leave happy, my hair has never looked so good. I always receive compliments. Teresita makes sure you get exactly what you wanted, she cares if you are happy with the work.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great stylist!
Why didn't I get a massage sooner?! – This is the question I pondered after saying yes to a chair massage from Stephen. I had gotten a full hour from him before, but allowed too much time to pass since.
He's extremely professional, while being attentive and intuitive to your needs. The experience is a soothing one, that relaxes and gets to the root of your tension--the aches you feel, and the ones you're oblivious to (cause we all carry them).
Even if you feel a massage is only in the luxury budget, give yourself a well-deserved massage from Stephen, even if it's just a quicker chair. I guarantee you'll find your way back in for another!
Teresita is the best – I love going to Teresita for haircuts! She is fun to talk to and a great hair stylist. She really listens to your concerns and is very skilled. I used to see Mario there before but never really liked him. I don't think he's there anymore anyways. Overall Kisma is a great salon!
Best Shampoo/Style – Just stopped in to the salon to see if I could relax and try a shampoo/style and received even more! I had never met Nicole and she gave me the "Best Ever" scalp massage with shampoo/style!
I needed pampering after a long Thanksgiving week and she took me to another place...my hair looked amazing and I felt amazing! I will definitely treat myself again...especially with the holidays and parties coming up!
Make an appointment, go in, relax and walk out smiling! – If you are looking for a salon that makes you look and feel like a million bucks then you have to make an appointment with the Kisma team. Owner Anet and the entire Kisma staff set the standard for professionalism client service and incredible work.
I always look forward to my appointments at Kisma. From the minute I walk in the front door I immediately start to relax and look forward to my services for the day. A big part of this feeling comes from knowing that my haircut or spa service will be amazing and I will walk out feeling like a rockstar.
If you really want to relax, make sure you request Jordan for a scalp massage. You don't know what you are missing until she starts this incredible massage. Jordan found tension that I didn't even know I had!
I am a girl that won't miss a mani so I also recommend while you are getting your haircut and color, get in to see the manicure ladies. Netti and Danielle rock and will have your digits looking great in no time.
Make an appointment at Kisma knowing that you will walk out completely satisfied with a smile on your face and your next appointment card in your hand. I promise.
Teresita is amazing! – I walked in not knowing how I wanted to do my hair. Teresita was extremely helpful and knows what she's doing. She cuts and colors my hair and it comes out stunning every time. If you don't know a thing about hair (like me), she's your go-to-hair stylist!
Kisma #1 in my heart! – This salon has been my home and family for the past 3 years. I recall the first time ever stepping foot into their door. Never once had I ever considered or even thought that there were salons out there using all natural products such as Aveda. The earthy smell of the products alone were enough to get me hooked.
Before deciding Kisma was my new home, I used to go several different places to get my hair cut, my nails, and waxing done. I used to dye my own hair or have a friend help, and only in very rare occasions did I ever trust a salon with my highlights or dye. Kisma soon became the one stop shop for it all.
The music is always very soothing and calm. Their lighting is just right in the salon to ensure your hair is safe in all angles for whatever cut you may need. The floor is always well maintained, the seats comfortable, and I love how every time I come in there is a complimentary make-up touch up or some sort of scalp/hand massage. They have relaxation down to a tee (just ask Stephen or Geri).
Kristy, my first stylist, was the first since I was 14 to convince me to try blond highlights. They came out flawless needless to say. Teresita is who you want to see if you're looking for something adventurous or someone who knows just what's right for your hair/occasion. Justin is amazing with color! No really! Simply awesome. Danielle is very compassionate not only with your hair, but when you also need someone to listen. Cecilia is wonderful if you are still feeling a bit shy with your hair or feel a bit modest. Tammy, my most recent visit, I had never sat in her chair before, told her what I wanted, and nailed it. I mean nailed it; it was perfect!
Everyone always tend to pick their favorite hair stylist that at times they can be worried to venture or stray away if they are out of the salon when you need them. It's not really necessary to be worried at all here. I've seen some come and go from Kisma and tried a few different stylists. Never have I ever been unhappy or needed to return to 'fix' my hair.
When you decide to make the trip, make sure whoever's seat that you wind up in that you take a few of their cards with you. I'm stopped by friends, co-workers, and even sometimes people on the street/at the store/everywhere for hair compliments.
BEST SALON EVER!!!! – I've been going to Kisma for quite sometime and all I have to say is it's a great place the staff are very nice and always have a smile.
Also I've been going to Kristy for my hair needs and she always makes me look good. I think a hairstylist should be like an artist and the client should be the canvas but I usually give her a general idea and she goes with it.
Kristy makes me feel great after every time I get my hair done. I would defiantly recommend her to anyone who wants to look and feel awesome.
I've also been getting facials by Dey and she is awesome too. After a hard work week she relaxes me with a nice facial. I would recommend her to anyon e who wants an awesome facial.
Thanks Kisma you guys are awesome I don't know if I said that enough but you truly are just awesome.
Thanks once again.
