Great Cut and Color – Debra has been cutting my hair for about 5 years. She is fantastic at what she does, she loves it and it shows! She pays great attention to detail and will make sure you are happy with your cut and color. She takes many classes and goes to tradeshows to stay current on the latest styles. I highly recommend her to anyone who really cares about their hair!
Debra Collins Great Stylist – I'm reviewing a stylist who is relocating to Mika Salon. Debra Collins might be the most creative, talented stylist I've ever met whether she's working with long or short styles. Best of all, she just loves to cut hair. She's really great about asking you lots of questions to ensure you get exactly what you want, but can also suggest ideas for what works with your hair. If you're in or near Walnut Creek, CA and want to try someone new, meet Debra and have a blast! Debra had been doing my long hair for a while and I loved her work, but I awoke the other day and decided to cut it all off. Debra was all "let's do it!". I am so crazy about my new look and it is so easy! Sadly, I now have to drive from Folsom to Walnut Creek for my next hair cut - UGH!
Look for a different place right away! – Some “independent” hair dressers at Mika have unjustified huge prices.
While Ashley is charging $30 for a shampoo and style, a new and very daring one is charging $45. More, you cannot pay by card all the time. Last time when I went there I had to find an ATM and withdraw some cash, and I paid $4.5 extra charge because it was an ATM from a different bank. So, instead of paying $30 + tip by card, I paid $45 + $4.5 ATM fee + tip, which is absolutely stupid.
So, be aware, don’t waste your time and money in such a place!
avoid like the plague if you want your hair to match the decade you're living in..... – "i tried mika salon because even tho i LOVE my regular stylist i have had it with driving to petaluma from san ramon to see him. i brought pictures and was extremely clear about what i wanted....namely to get rid of all traces of red in my hair from the last crappy stylist i saw in san ramon and also to add some layers to my a-line bob. i said repeatedly that i liked my length and that i didn't want to go shorter. well it's been 2 hours since i got home and i'm still breaking out in tears every time i pass a mirror. my hair looks EXACTLY like the haircut dorothy hamill is famous for and even tho i've restyled it twice since i came home, there's just no bringing that hair back and i have never felt so hideous in all my life. i feel like she didn't hear a word i said AND that her cutting skills are severly lacking. my guess is that the salon suggested her for me because she needs to build her clientele and not because she does a lot of short modern cuts w/an edgy sensibility like i asked for. when she was finished, i expressed my displeasure and she attempted to flat-iron the mushroom shape down and made various excuses blaming the brush, the products, and me for wanting to add layers. she offered to cut more layers or take the length up higher to "add volume and shorten the length in front"---the two aspects i was already unhappy with! i called the salon, after the walk of shame to my car, and while they did offer to have someone else take a whack at it free of charge, i have to say i have no confidence in a salon that would employ a stylist with such outdated skills not to mention there's not much left to work with.
this is definitely the worst salon experience i have ever had and i'm actually looking forward to my next drive to petaluma!"
Eh. – I had this salon recommended to me by a friend. As a Christmas present, I went there and was charged nearly 200 dollars on a cut and color. I had never colored my hair before and was nervous. The stylist Darla hardly talked to me and put far too much color in (I'm a natural redhead and I walked out nearly Barbie-blond despite the fact I just asked for minor highlights). She offered to redo it, which was a plus, but I was so disappointed that I just wanted it all out. The cut was styled but not the way I had asked, even when I had provided a picture.
I'm pretty flexible and the style grew on me a little, but overall this experience was not worth the cost and it certainly wasn't what I asked for. For how much it cost I didn't really want to have to rely on being flexible. I was a little let down to be honest. I've heard great things about this salon and saw other women with fantastic cuts while I was there, I just wouldn't recommend Darla.
Mika's home to the East Bay's best Stylist! – Mika's is a great salon with good lighting and excellent services. Marcia Bledsoe at Mika's has been my stylist for years and even though I moved from the East Bay to the South Bay, I continue to depend on Marica. She is fabulous with both cut and color and keeps on top of the newest trends and tools. She listens to what I want and also offer suggestions and ideas for new styles, colors and tips that keep pace with my life. She's the best.
Fantastic Mika Salon – I have been going to Mika Salon for several years and I have always received incredible service. The atmosphere is classy and professional. I continue to return to my stylist, Marica, because she consistently gives me an awesome haircut, along with beautiful, natural-looking haircolor and highlights. I always feel wonderful, when looking in the mirror, to see Marica's fantastic handiwork with scissors and color. Marica's knowledge and abilities regarding hair styling and hair coloring provide me with the confidence to know that she has made me look my best. Going to Mika Salon, and Marica in particular, is well worth the trip. Give it a try!!
I miss Patty Purple – Patty Purple is great. Patty cut my hair for ten years while she lived in South Lake Tahoe and I miss her big time. I have traveled to MIKA Salon in Walnut Creek for a haircut and was very pleased to see that Patty is now working in a salon worthy of her talent. Its a long way for me to go for a haircut but I think it may just be worth the trip.
Purple Patty's Great – I've never been dissapointed in Patty's great cuts. She'll do exactly what you want with a smile and great attitude!
