Diana & Keter Top Notch – I can't say enough good things about Diana and Keter salon. I've been a client of Diana's for nearly 5 years and am amazed at her creativity and ability to give an stylish contemporary cut every time. I'm a mom with two young kids, so I don't have much time to browse through magazines these days, but I want to stay current and stylish. I find that Diana always gives me a great cut and her color is magnificent! Whether I'm out on the town or running around the playground I always feel hip! Diana is worth her weight in gold!!
Editorial Review – Salon offers haircare, plus art exhibitions with live music, fashion shows, poetry readings and various product lines.
Already booked my next appointment! – I've been letting my sister experiment on my hair for years with hair color out of the box. It finally caught up with me in a bad way. I went to Keter with really dry, damaged, brassy-colored hair. Tracy didn't balk, she asked me what I was looking for and told me what she envisioned. I came out with there with a rich natural color and a healthy looking shine. I would highly recommend her services to anyone, she's an expert! On top of having fabulous color, I also learned a new styling technique. The salon assistant, Hilary, couldn't have been more excited to get her hands on my curly mess. I've met very few stylists who are this excited to take on the challenge of my impossible curls. It was AWESOME! She taught me how to twist my hair for a super-easy funky style. My experience at Keter far exceeded my expectations. I've already booked my next appointment :)
BEST HAIRCOLOR EVER ! YOU WON'T FIND BETTER ! – I decided to try a new salon because my stylist for years kept on doing the same old thing - she never had new ideas ! I walked into Keter Salon on a whim while I was shopping on 4th Street and booked an appointment with their color specialist, Tracy. I had no idea what a "specialist" was, but I do now! WOW! I didn't want a total makeover, just to look modern and beautiful. Tracy listened to me and then shared with me her "vision" of what my hair could look like. And then it happened! It's amazing how subtle changes make all the difference. My hair is brilliant and beautiful, yet still natural and believable. I'll never be that boring reproduction of a stagnant stylist again. You can bet I'm going back to Tracy - she's not stuck in a rut and now, neither am I.
Best Hair Cut Ever – A couple weeks ago my friend got an amazing haircut. She said she had gone to this newer hair stylist named Yesenia at Keter salon in Berkeley. When I called I asked for the newer stylist and they were able to schedule me in later that day. The minute I got there I totally loved the feel of the place. I was a bit nervous since I usally go to the city for my cuts. So I was very happy to see that she was ON TIME!!!! Most salons make you wait 20 or 30 minutes before they even pay attention to you. She really listened to me and made me feel at ease when she was cutting my hair.(By the way I have a ton of hair) She was able to give me alot of information on how to maintain my hair healthy. And she gave me the best style I have ever had. All in all I had the best experience ever!!!! Also I didn't have to commute all the way to the city and pay an arm and leg for superior service.. I highly recommend Yesenia she's freaken fabulous!!!
Perfect Ten for Tracy's Color Skill – After asking a woman on the street who colored her hair, I found out about Tracy at Keter Salon in Berkeley. I was lacking the beautiful highlights that makes strangers ask "Who does your hair?" I immediately made an appointment - thank God she's available evenings - and I've never been more satisfied with my color. I was so glad I bugged that woman on the street! I had no idea that my hair could look so good, and now I'm a fan for life. She really listened to me and gave me exactly what I needed. Next time I'm just going to tell her to do whatever she wants, because she obviously knows what she's doing.
So if you ever see me on the street, I'm the one with the beautiful highlights!
High Five for Hair Stylist Wayne Garsky – Get a special treat for your hair with stylist Wayne Garsky. He takes his time, carefully checks out what needs to be done and with his expert touch does whatever is needed which can be a cut, highlight or touch up. I love the atmosphere at Keter. Relaxing, melodious, and comfortably chatty. As you can tell I enjoy going to Keter and feel privileged that I can even walk there from my home. HIgh fives for Keter and highly recommended by this long time customer.
TRACY for color – when i found out my beloved colorist tracy left mercer street salon in san francisco, i panicked. i finally tracked her down in berkeley, and i will cross any bridge and any expanse of water to find her again! you can't find talent like this anywhere, and i will be loyal forever! she actually listens and then performs miracles on your hair - i thought i had problem hair, but the truth was that no one could do highlights as well as her. i have - and now will always have - beautiful, sunny, beachgirl hair, and i'll never settle for less again. any salon is lucky to have her on their roster, but i am actually the lucky one here - and you should be too!
Expensive for average cuts – PRICE: Expensive for what you get. It seems they give satisfactory cuts and the customer pays the extra premium to sit in the upscale 4th st district.
SERVICE: Satisfactory usually. I recently paid extra for the top stylist, who was often distracted and off paying attention to many different things, incl. her cell phone. The less expensive stylists had better service and equal skills.
Place seems best for trims. I saw several stylists who were satisfactory to poor for bangs and anything requiring precision. Probably best for long hair.
AMBIANCE: Basic, clean, lots of natural light
Great hair every time, special occaision and everyday – Savannah at Keter did my hair for my wedding (see pic)!! i was SO happy- she spent alot of time discussing what we would do, taking notes and pictures. The results were amazing.
I have had my hair done at Keter 3 or 4 times and I am very happy. Anita does a great flat iron and Mary does great color and lfat iron as well- after she dyed and fle-ironed me, I didnt wash my hair for four days and it still looked great!
The salon is above fourth ave with views of the sky and trees, very light and airy. I have had bad luck with salon dye jobs in th past, but I am very happy with Keter!
