Next time I'll keep trying!. Chris stays so busy it can be difficult to get an appointment. Last time I needed a cut there was a wait so I decided to try elsewhere- What a mess they made of my hair! My family laughed at the job and I felt conspicuous for almost a month. Now I am back but make sure to make my next appointment before I leave so I don't suffer again.
Best I've seen in a loooong time!.
I made an appointment with Chris after reading her glowing reviews on many review sites just to see if they were all right, and I have to admit I gave her a bad time but she came through for me. first, I asked for a consultaion appointment for a simple cut-no attitude, just accomodated my request. Then I came in not knowing what I wanted. With patience she asked questions, suggested possibilities, then when I finally told her all I wanted was a very light trim, she did just that. I get so tired of people doing what THEY want rather than what I want, but this did not happen with Chris.
She is a talented, no-nonsense person who gives great work at very reasonable prices. If the job is not what you expect, she will fix it at her cost. There is no shallow ego at work here. In fact I heard her tell a customer that if her friend (who was a client that fell on hard times) wanted a cut she would happily do it at no charge. We need more like her out there.
Unfortunately the only bad thing is that she stays VERY busy so we must plan ahead if we want to use her. It is worth it to me!
This girl ROCKS!!.
When I first visited Chris I must admit I was fearful. I had seen so many stylsts and was never happy. But I was immediately calm when Chris introduced herself. Something told me this time would be different and it really was!
Chris really took time to let me describe what I wanted and asked questions to clarify. As she was cutting and coloring my hair she again asked me how I wanted my hair to look.
When she was done I was soooo happy with the look! My hair never looked that good and I found when I did it at home it came out as nice as it did in the salon. Good hair cutting still is available in Pleasanton and Chris is the person that can do the look you want.
really great experience.
What I look for in a hair dresser is the ability to understand my difficult challenges such as very thin, lacking body, and color that looks dull. During my consultation I could see that I was being heard-very difficult to find today. Then we discussed possible solutions and also limitations. There was no bs, Chris was very honest about what my hair was able to do, but also suggested stragegically placed extensions that could enhance some of the more difficult areas, no one in the past had ever talked about adding hair to mine.
When we were finished my hair looked totally natural but had body and fullness. I am finding it easy to style and care for because I was instructed before I left the shop. Right now I feel I finally have attractive hair-something I never had before. I also feel I was treated as an individual-not given the "style of the day."
she works with you!. After fighting with my last stylist over and over about my color, I tried Chris and have been with her for over one year now. She listens, tries new things if something is not working, and is always pleasant to talk with. She does not over book and has always been on time for my appointments. I have finally been happy with my hair after many years of frustration and dissapointment. Chris is the best in the area!
I watched this stylist interact with several customers of the shop and she was so open and friendly so I decided to try her with my hair.
She did an awsome job with the cut and the color, exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend you try Chris.
Ugly hair no more....
After reading umteen reviews I decided to call Chris to see what see could do with my ugly hair. I walked in and was immediately greeted, asked to have a seat and watched Chris finish the customer in the chair. I was impressed and that made me feel more comfortable about using a new stylist.
Chris was on time, she spent time with me learning my likes etc, repeated back to me what she thought I was telling her, then went to work to create the style I had discussed with her.
When she had finished the cut she talked me through what I would need to do at home to re-create the style.
I left feeling that I looked fabulous and that I could do the style myself at home.
All in all it was a very pleasant experience, and I love my new style.
my wife loces her. My wife is finally happy with my hair. For years she has complained about the cuts I got in those in and out shops. Chris takes time to see ther are no lines in my fade, and the top hair lies down really well. I can tell her what was good and bad about the last cut and she never takes issue with that. For the first time in many yeard I like my hair. Try her!
She never fails me. Chris has done my color several times now. Each time she asks questions to see what might be different. (She keeps records on all customers) and patiently works to give me the best color I have ever had. I come away each time with beautiful color and a cut/style that works well with my features and lifestyle. I have never had such a dedicated hair stylist.
3rd generation and i love her too!.
Both my mom and granny have been clients of Chris for years. At first I thought she might not keep up with current fashion since she has been doing hair so long but no, Chris constantly learns new stuff to try and does some very high fashion color. Most of my friends comment on my color and I always send them to Chris. I never worry that they won't be happy Chris is very versatile.
My only suggestion is plan ahead but it will be worth it.
