Best creative, artistic hair styling – I've been going to Rebecca at Keter for about 3 years now, and consider myself so lucky to have found her. I have never left Rebecca's chair feeling less than my absolute best. And I've never received so many compliments on my hair. Rebecca is a true artist! She keeps up on the latest styles and techniques and is constantly perfecting her craft. Rebecca takes the time to listen to your needs, but also shares her vision of what works well and what doesn't. Both the color and style continue to look great months after I see her. Whatever type of hair you have, I highly recommend putting it in Rebecca's hands!
Look no further if you want a great cut. – If you're interested in an excellent haircut that will hold it's style, color, and/or shape for the weeks in between appointments, if you're interested in maintaining a classic yet flattering cut, or exprimenting with an edge-ey, visionary style, or courageously taking on an image-changing new look, or wanting to creatively collaborate with your stylist on the best cut for you, go see Rebecca.
Professional, light-hearted, intelligent, highly trained and highly skilled, she will leave your hair healthy and beautiful, and expertly styled. She is an artist. I have been going to Rebecca for many years, and I have consistently received compliments on my hair and often am asked where do I get my hair done? She validates and then co-creates the various and malleable yet always authentic self-expression that is me at my most beautiful best. If you're interested in such things, she will do the same for you.
Thank you for the long standing support, and for allowing the co-creation to happen...it's all in the language, back and forth, and jumping off the edge of the cliff sometimes.
I look forward to the next time.
always fashion forward – Rebecca has an artist's eye for shape, texture and color. I always get compliments on my hair and more often on the color. Often strangers will compliment my hair color. Rebecca's warmth and sincere customer service is always present. She is energetic and focused. The salon offers a fun and vibrant environment however, I would go to any venue to have Rebecca style and color my hair. I have been one of Rebecca's clients for over 20 years and I am hoping for 20 more years.
I love sitting down in her chair and relaxing . I always trust Rebecca's sense of the best style and color for me so I don't discuss my thoughts, I prefer listening to her suggestions about my hair.
This is my first time writing a review.
Thank you for your support and trust in me to create for you. I am honored.
Let her take the wheel and drive! – In 2006 i won a make-over with East Bay Express...Exciting!! When i came to Rebecca, who was chosen for me by East Bay Express....my hair was long, brown, stringy, and flat. Rebecca sat down in front of me and the first question she asked..."so how do you feel about the color red"? second question "how do you feel about bangs"?. I forgot to mention i am totally over protective of my hair, but from the minute Rebecca started explaining her vision, i then decided i could let her take the wheel and drive! I mean c'mon why not...im getting a make-over!!! She chose three different colors for my hair, and went to town! For the cut i accepted to go for bangs! But, didn't let her take my lenghth...however, a generous trim was much needed! Rebecca was great! I loved my new hair...the color job was fun and totally fit my personality! The cut was safe...But, nice because we met in the middle and agreed the trim with bangs would be perfect!
Now, here i am. It's 2008...and my hair is back to long, black (now), stringy, and flat. I am ready for another change! Rebecca was the first person who came to mind. I dont care the cost, Ive got to have her...got to let her take the wheel and drive again! This time i think im going to let her choose the direction and drive. Yes, i trust in her that much. Customer service was great...easy to talk to, full of laughs, and lots of fun...overall a great salon experience!
Thank you for allowing me to take the wheel and drive. It is always a pleasure when a person is open to change, and to seeing themselves differently. If you want edgy, just say the word, I will take your image in a whole new direction. Can't wait to see you again.
User review by scarycherrie – I got my hair cut by Rebecca a little over two years ago before she moved to 4th street in Berkeley. She squeezed me in eventhough I think she may have been done for the day, which was really nice of her. At first I wasn't too thrilled with the cut (no one else I knew liked it much either). But after it had grown out some I absolutely loved it (in a best-cut-ever way)!!! I had a good overall experience. I would go back if I could afford to and if didn't work in a salon myself where I can get my hair done for free.
Poor customer service – I mostly liked Rebecca: fun, nice, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, but the day after, I wasn't comfortable with the color, so called to see if i could return. She didn't call back. I left another message--no call back. She finally called over a week later; left a message saying to try and get used to it and she's booked anyway. I tried to like it, and still didn't after 3 weeks, so I called again...same thing--no call back. I finally went to someone else and had it corrected. Rebecca did call back about a week later. She said she might be able to squeeze me in. By this time, i already paid more money to have someone else do it. It's frustrating paying $175 for a cut/color plus big tip; buying $100 in products then get poor customer service. Obviously, I will not be going back to Rebecca.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – For more than 20 years, this stylist has been offering cuts, color, color correction, highlights, styling and consultations.
Rebecca is a true Artist ... – I started going to Rebecca about six months ago after a year and a half of searching for a new hairdresser. I'm SOO glad I found her! She is MORE than a hair dresser, she's an artist and a creator. She's not afraid to play with color and I'm always happy with her work.
