Worst Haircut Ever – Do NOT Come here. Way overpriced for the quality of what they don't do. I had a hair cut last week and asked Joe to trim my hair and make it wispy and take out weight to add movement. Instead he cuts off over 4 inches and the ends were so blunt cut!! It looked as if I was wearing a wig!!
In addition, he also cut my bang way too short!! I wanted to trim my swoop bang and he cut off way too much. It barely goes past my forehead!
When I tried to call back to see if someone can fix the cut the receptionist hung up on me twice! I paid $65 for the worst Mullet cut EVER!!!
So do yourself a HUGE favor and go downtown to Umbrella...they fixed my hair and did a hell of a job!!Best of all they LISTEN to their clients vs. just doing what they think will look best!
TOP Salon with a Creative Edge. Worth the Investment! – What is there to say but that W's salon is in a League to be compared with the TOP Professional in the Beauty Biz! With the expansion of the salon(which is a Good sign that they are doing something right!), I know that they have already been recognized with some of the TOP Designers and Fashion Industry professionals Nationally and Internationally. Way to go William, you and YOUR Staff deserve a high Review in my book! You Guys ROCK! You can only get better from here!
Question: "Now why would some of the TOP Modeling Agencies send their models to them to update and Style their looks for the Fashion Industry?" I rest my case!
"TWO BIG Thumbs UP for you guys! "We should be Proud to have such a Professional Salon in the Bay Area."
Editorial Review – Upscale hair salon provides creative and classic styles to create a different look or maintain a an old favorite.
Nice touch with their own water bottles, but fade and price will keep me away. – I read the reviews and decided to try it. It is small, with seating for 3 inside and a bench outside, but it is Santana Row and the rent is expensive.
The service was good and they do carry a great selection of Kerastase and Bumble & Bumble. The manager, Alan, I believe, was not very attentive, but my stylist seemed to know what she was doing, if a little chatty with the other stylists. It is a little distracting to have someone working on you carrying on a conversation with someone else.
The cut was fine and the color appeared ok, but one of the reviews mentioned fading as a problem. It was! The color fades out so quickly that you really don't get to enjoy the color. Maybe, it's to keep you coming back frequently. The salon's own little water bottles are a nice touch.
I probably wouldn't go back because of the fading and the salon is expensive to patronize frequently.
A curious thing I did notice when I read the reviews is that every time there's a negative review a positive one seems to be posted within a few days. Hmm? I wonder if someone at the salon keeps track of the comments and posts a positive review whenever there's a bad one. We'll see how quickly a positive review follows this one.
What kind of a review was that? – Why is it when someone reviews a shop or restaurant in Santana Row, they always say its snobby?? Give credit where credit is due. Santana Row has brought up the value of everything around it. I've been going to W's Salon since I moved into Santana Heights and I have to say that I've never found it to be too small or crowded. Yes, it is busy, that just means they do great work. The prices are comparable to most of the salons in the area, I know I've been to most of them. I keep coming back because they actually care about me, not just how much they can get out of me. Really, the best way to know about the place is to go check it out for yourself. Get your own opinion.
You have to be kidding me! Willie? Could this salon be any smaller? – The good stylists have moved out of this salon and down the road on San Carlos. The manager at the front desk seems to have very little time for the clients, as he's always going out for coffee.
The cut was mediocre for $65 and the color faded almost as fast as they put it on and that was outrageous. My suggestion is to find something a little more reasonable. They do do have great products in Kerastase and Bumble $ Bumble, but the salon is cramped, with 2 chairs in the waiting area and not many more than that for their stylists.
Free water? Where have you been? For what W charges, I'd give gift certificates to Starbucks, across the street. The manager's usually there.
William is a top stylist! – William has styled my hair for over 8 years and I am never disappointed with his cuts or color. He trains with the best and it shows in his clients and his portfolio. He has styled for numerous fashion shows and photoshoots. The salon has a nice modern feel and his staff is very friendly. I love the Bumble and Bumble and Karastase hair products.
This is the place to get styled... – My boyfriend and I went to get our haircut last weekend. We are both extremely happy. My older sister has been getting her hair done by Willie for over 10 years and won't go to anyone else. Willie has been cutting my hair on and off for about that long as well. I don't live in San Jose, so it is hard for me to make the commute sometimes. I needed a change and so decided to make an appointment with Willie at his salon. I knew that I didn't even need a plan for my hair because I was confident he would give me something modern and stylish. The salon is perfect in size and decor, plus everyone makes you feel really comfortable. My boyfriend got his hair done by Deanna and he was very impressed with the time she spent on his hair. He didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. She didn't even use clippers on his hair, only scissors. That was a first for him. You will for sure walk out of this salon feeling good and ready to show your new hairdo.
Fun atmosphere,Excellent customer service – I always look forward to having my hair done at W's SALON. Each time is a great experience.The staff are friendly and knowledgable. They used Kerastase product s to tame my rebellious hair. If your having a bad hairday check out W's SALON for a treatment blow-out and you will definitely come back for more.
more than expected!!! – W's salon has delivered more to me than i was expecting. The staff is extremely friendly and are there for any of your needs. My particular stylist has given me a look that is suitable for my life style and made me feel sooo pretty. I highly recommend W's salon for anyone who wants to look great and feel great.
