Decent if in the neighborhood – I decided to go to F Studio because it was in the neighborhood and looked clean and tasteful. I got a makeup application and a hair styling for a special event and was treated well and pampered. The hair styling was good, but the makeup was not very natural looking (kind of white and ashy around the eyes). I may try it again for a simple trim/haircut but wouldn't go back for a WOW look.
Amazing Hair Cut – I just got the most wonderful cut from Mayra! She really listened to what I wanted and executed it perfectly. Not only is she very skilled but is a pleasure to speak to. The time flew by and before I knew it I had an amazing cut and blowout. Please give her a try, you will not regret it! I will definitely be back!
Mayra the Hair Goddess – A gorgeous Eva Longoria look-a-like scheduled my hair appointment then introduced me to Mayra. With her black tresses and a radiant smile, she examined my hair and asked, "What type of cut are you looking for?" I grunted and patted my hair and made hand gestures considered offensive in some third world countries. And before I knew it, I was in Mayra's special barber chair with a huge white cape draped over my body. I felt like Cleopatra.
The pea-colored walls were adorned with large gold framed mirrors, old-fashioned barber chairs and rare antique chests were present. Whispers of John Mayer in the background were comforting. The warm and cozy atmosphere the salon evoked relaxed me.
Training under hair gurus, Mayra acquired the skills to successfully run a prosperous business, but her charismatic persona, stylish sense and chic sophistication is something she developed on her own. When you enter her salon, you're not just getting a cut--you're having a glamorous hair experience.
"As a young girl, my Barbie dolls were my first clients," she admitted. "I applied shoe polish to their hair for seductive highlights and nail polish was used as stylish eye shadow."
She noticed my eyes sparkle when I saw her trademark Mayra technique; she took a chunk of my hair, twisted it around and in rapid short bursts attacked my hair leaving the left-over locks in a state of jagged perfection. "'Close your eyes--if you try this at home and get it wrong--you'll chop half your hair off," she explained. I shut my eyes in excitement.
The final touches were added when she handed me a bottle of "TWISTED" a fiber styling paste--an exclusive Mayra Segovia product--to apply. My hair was not only ready for the "red-carpet" but it begged to be dipped in gold. I wore my hair like a crown and people noticed.
"The next time you come back, we're adding some midnight blue streaks in your hair," she told me. I'll do whatever she tells me--how can I not? She's the hair goddess.
I love Mayra! Great hair colorist, stylist, make up artist – Okay...so I needed my hair color done desperately last week. I am a blonde that refuses to be blonde.. I want to be dark..Dark brown/ deep shiny brown. So I came to Mayra with two of my friends in the afternoon. They were there to keep me company but decided to get pampered as well. Mayra taught me all about the color in my hair and how to take care of it. She took her time. She was so knowledgeable about my hair, and so friendly. Her assistant did my nails while I was having my hair done. I felt like a princess...and I looked like one by the time I left. My hair has the dark shiney glow that I was looking for and I had my make up done so that I would look great going out that night. My nails looked great, and so did my friends. They both had their nails and make up done. If you need a great hair cut and color...I highly recommend this place. My hair never looked so good :-)

Great Cut and Color, Amazing Service. – I wanted to try something new, and I was referred to Mayra Segovia F Studio. The hair wash itself was the starting point which was amazing, my hair cut was fresh and clean... exactly how I had imagined to look. They took the time and they were gentle. I felt relaxed and comfortable by the end. My color came out perfectly too. I was looking for a rich, shiney color to really let the sun reflect off of my hair. The color is great, the hair cut was great, the place is nice ( on the second floor) and the people made everything perfect.
