Thank you so much for creating such a masterpiece! – I am so happy I found you.
As a model, I needed a haircut that is not only manageable, but that can be styled in many creative and different ways... and you did such a wonderful job with it. I get so many compliments from different people.
The hair cut you gave me is so good it even looks great without styling it. I don't need to blowdry it anymore, it dries naturally into perfect shape. No hairdresser has ever accomplished that before (and I always asked). You really know how to get the best out of my hair! Most of all, you were very professional and very fun.
You have a lifetime friend and customer now :)
Thank you for everything! See ya in a few months! :)
Good color not so good cuts – Everyone at the salon is nice. The color and highlights I got there were good. They matched my haircolor to my skin tone really nicely. I felt like the cuts were overpriced for what I got. I went twice and both times, color was good, hair cuts weren't all that.
bad experience – I had my hair done there in February and still have horrible flashbacks because the woman cut my hair too short by several inches!! I had a picture, so there was no miscommunication, and the style was not at all what I asked for, it was a completely different cut than the picture. And the color was not cute, If felt like it was a rush job and the woman just wanted to go home, it was an evening appt. Now, several months later, I look in the mirror and I'm still upset with the jacked up job. It will take my hair another year to get it to grow out to the length she was supposed to cut it to. I'm not trying to be a hater, and some of the other stylists looked like they knew what they were doing, I guess I was just unlucky enough to get a new person. I just had to say something because from my experience this salon does not deserve a nine, it was the worst haircut I have ever received.
The best salon ever! – I just want to let you know, that at work this morning, the first four people I saw told me how great my new style looked. I hope that makes your day?.
I will be referring everyone your way, thanks! Christy
Worse Stylist EVER! – I found Koru's in the Yellow Pages and decided to give them a try. The stylist and I talked about color and a cut. I told him that I only wanted a trim and touchup along with a color weave. What happened from this point was sure HORROR! The stylist put the color on my hair, grabbed scissors and cut 3 inches off (WITH THE COLOR STILL ON MY HAIR), I looked over at the owner who was working on a client in the chair next to me to see if this was normal. I thought maybe it was a new technique or something! I said YOU CUT TOO MUCH! From this point he cut more trying to match it up. Then he put a cap with holes on it (old style highlighting), and began to pull hair out to add the highlights. Again, I looked over at the owner and he said nothing. Lets just say when all was said and done, my cut was so crooked that there was a VISIBLE one and half inch different in the front, not to mention it was crooked all around. I called the stylist back and expressed my dislike and poor stylist skills. I came in and the owner had to try and fix the cut, but from this point it could only go shorter. I got my $150 back and the only thing the owner said was "he's new". My suggestion to David the owner is TRAIN YOUR PEOPLE BEFORE YOU LET THEM WORK ON SOMEONE'S HAIR! This was a year ago and my hair is now at the length prior to the horrible cut. My friends still remember that cut and laugh at me about today. I WOULD NOT RECOMMENT KORU'S. Because if you rant and rave about your salon, you need to make sure that the people working there can cut hair, color hair and style hair!
Angie+Japanese Straightening = my dream hair! – I am so happy with my new hair! I feel like a new man. My hair was coarse and wavy, "Nappy" was a word often used to describe it. I had heard about this new straightening process that was out but didn't have much hope in it being all that it was suppose to be. I was referred to Angie at Koru. After our consultation I 100% knew that my hair and I were in good hands. I was right. I have the hair I have always wanted. Absolutely NO Damage! Words escape me. I recommend Angie 100%. She is skilled, passionate and caring. I am a new man. Thank you Angie and Koru.
Kudos to Koru's Angie!!! My hair is Fabulous!!! – I recently moved to Long Beach from NYC, and was not having much luck in my search for a new hairstylist. I decided to ask the very next person that I came across with absolutely fabulous hair who they went to. A few days later I was doing some shopping and saw the exact haircut I wanted on the lady in front of me in line and her daughter had the color I wanted but had yet to achieve through my many visits to different styists during my search. They sent me to Angie at Koru. I was so happy with the results and my hair has never looked or felt better. Angie was extremely knowledgeable and informative in all aspects of the beauty industry. My hard to handle curls have been tamed and I even learned so new tricks to make styling my hair not such a nightmare anymore.
David Ingham and Koru Rock! – I have never before gotten the color and cut I've desired before David's uncanny magic touch.
The Best color on earth and he knows exactly what will bring out the best in you, just let him run his fingers through your hair and it looks great. Let him free with his ideas and watch out!
This is a super cool place and I immediately felt comfortable. They even offer champagne, you'll feel totally at home and like you're with friend's
Run, don't walk to David at Koru – I went to David because he has worked with supermodels and is known for his makeovers.
I've never had such a complete consultation. He made a few suggestions and we agreed on a change that he assured me would be great.
Bear in mind, I have always had stick-straight hair.
He colored my hair by using his own special technique. To my surprise, he was done in 30 minutes. I've never seen any stylist (except Edward Scissorhands) work with my hair with such expertise, hair was flying, I was nervous/excited and what was amazing is my hair was looking curly!
He began to blowdry using just his fingers. The more it dried the more gorgeous and curly it got. I was bug-eyed, seeing my "straight" hair transformed into the hair that I'd always wanted. This was soo cool!
This guy works magic, really magic, I am a client for life.
