I had some time to kill before a doctor's appointment at the Tang Center, so I thought I'd stop by for a hair cut, since I was planning on doing that sometime, anyway. I just walked in, and Crystal was waxing someone, so I had to wait ten minutes or so before she got to me. I wasn't in a hurry, so I didn't mind the wait. When it was my turn, I explained what I wanted, and she went to work. She was very quick, but thorough, and when I looked in the mirror, I was very pleased. She did EXACTLY as I asked (I wanted more layers, but to keep the length -- I wanted the look of a messy bob, a la Katie Holmes, without taking too much off), which, I confess, is a rarity with me. Hair stylists ALWAYS want to chop more off than I ask. They get a little too happy with those scissors, if you know what I mean. But Crystal was extremely nice, but quiet (which I like -- I'm not much of a talker), and I'll be more than happy to go again! A great, inexpensive ($15, in my case), quick cut! I recommend the place, particularly if you're a college student on a budget!
I love this place. I have African Hair; they do a great job. My roommate has long blong hair, they also do an amazing job.
Got my first brazilian wax here! It wasn't too expensive because i got a coupon here for 50% off. It was quick and almost painless. And since its so close to campus I definitely recommend UC Hair Salon!
Shadia gives great women's haircuts for really cheap prices. I wouldn't recommend the other stylists - I've tried them when Shadia isn't around (which is pretty often - she's usually just around later in the day), and they were just mediocre. But Shadia definitely has talent. I used to get my hair cut at fancy salons ($60 or more for a haircut), but the grad student budget got tight and I decided to try the cheaper end of the hair salon spectrum. Shadia is probably more talented than most of the people who work at more expensive salons. Highly recommended.
I genuinely recommend this place if you want a good first wax. I'm definitely coming back here again! SOOO worth the pain and 40$ plus tip.
This was my third time getting my haircut here and my first time getting a back wax here. I had also brought my friend who was in need of a fade, here for the first time. The service was great everyone was extremely nice. The haircuts were both great and perfect, not a hair out of place. The wax was great, the lady is extremely nice and makes you feel very comfortable. The wax took no more than 10 minutes and all of the hair was gone (just as I wanted). Best place in Berkeley, definitely going back
The best wax ever! As comfortable as it can be (LOL!) Just amazing! Thanks!
Great service! Brazillian wax was fantastic- was over in a matter of seconds!
I had never had a leg wax before. It was so great, that I got a whole package while I was there! I have had a wonderful experience at UC Hair Salon and Waxing, and recommend it very highly!
