I have known Gretchan for many years. In fact when our little ones were 2,5 yrs old (now 11....) we met at their preschool. Since a few years I go to Gretchan every couple of weeks. She is fun to talk to, the time always flies and my color and cut look amazing. The little studio at Loft is cozy and nice with the daylight coming in. Parking is never an issue and you can hit Trader Joes before or after. I recommend Gretchan and her services and hope you will give her a try!

My hair is hard to cut. It is coarse, thick, and curly/frizzy. Some sections of it are thicker than others and I have parts that grow slower than others, needless to say it is quite a challenge! Gretchan makes me look stunning every. single. haircut. I don't like looking the same all the time, so I always leave with something a little different and fresh and new. My last haircut, I have never gotten so many compliments in my life and continue to get them three months out, as it was cut very short and now it's growing into a beautiful long bob. To say she is talented is an understatement. She is magical with those scissors! And she's also a really cool human being, kind and calm and thoughtful and consistent and considerate. I recommend her to everyone. Angela Shafer

I have thick, wavy hair and I never know what to do with it. Gretchan cuts my hair so I am able to let it air dry and it looks terrific! She also takes the time to make sure it is even and doesn't have any areas that are more weighted than others. She has also made me feel comfortable enough to color my hair a bit, which is something I haven't done in years. Two thumbs up! Highly recommend!!!

"My hair looks amazing!!!!" I never give myself compliments, but that's what I found myself saying the other night. The cut Gretchan gave me gives me the versatility to wear my hair straight or wavy--oh, and did I mention I HATE messing with my hair? I never leave a haircut feeling disappointed. Thanks, Gretchan.

"Gretchan has been my hairstylist for over 15 years now...no one else has been allowed to touch my hair since! She is the only stylist I've ever had that truly "gets" my hair. She knows what it can and can't do, and is not afraid to say (in a gentle way) that the picture I found in a magazine is not exactly going to look the same on me! She always has new ideas for my hair at exactly the moment when I'm looking for a change. The best way I can describe her amazing skills would be to say that she is part artist, and part highly skilled hairdresser. She can visualize amazing haircuts and color for you and then make it happen. Gretchan has trained at some of the best schools/salons in the country, and she continues to challenge herself with new educational opportunities all the time. Not only is she amazing at what she does, but she's also an easygoing, friendly person who will make you feel at ease. Don't be surprised if you begin sharing your life story with her on your first visit! She is simply the best. - Gayle H."

Gretchan has been cutting my hair for 15 years, and just very recently started to do my color too. I'm hooked - the color turned out fabulous! She is down to earth, caring, creative, and highly passionate about her craft. Gretchan has a professional approach, and goes above and beyond to provide the best service to her clients. I give her two big thumbs-up!!
