I highly recommend Carissa after many years with my former hairdresser I had to change as I moved to Virginia. Let me just say that the entire experience from start to finish was superb. The first time with a new hairdresser is usually stressful and you tend to sit on pins & needles, but none of that happened with Carissa. She was insightful, understanding, and patient when we discussed where my hair had been and in what direction we would be going with it. The shampoo was relaxing and she really took her time. I had the confidence that she really knows what she is doing from start to finish. She asked me the right questions, how I want my haircut, and what pattern. She made me felt like I was with my former hairdresser and that makes me feel wonderful. I think myself lucky to find so quick my new hairdresser. I highly recommend especially to people like me who used to go for many years to a former hairdresser. The environment was cozy and the walls have wonderful and relaxing colors design and paint by Carissa herself. I believe this is a place that you make you feel at home when you visit your hairdresser.

Carrissa is not only amazing person but a super talented hair artist. She has taken me from platinum to brunette, pixie to shoulder length and I have never been disappointed. I can sit in the chair and trust her fully to work her magic even saying something as simply as I want to cool it down. She does beautiful balayage that grows out like a dream... The down side to that is that I don't get to see her as often.

I have been seeing Carissa for a few years now and she’s the best. I used to complain about my hair color and length and could never find someone who could get it the exact color I want while keeping the length during haircuts - but Carissa does an amazing job every time

Carissa did my amazing updo for my wedding. I got so many compliments on it. We tested three different styles before the wedding and she was so patient and listened to what I wanted. She also provided a much-needed calm the day-of during all the stress leading up to the ceremony. Additionally, she did all the styles for my bridesmaids, each one different, listening to what each of my girls wanted to suit their style. She is a wonderful person and perfect stylist.

I have been seeing Carissa since January of 2012. She is amazing! She has taken me from long hair to short and back to long a few times. I told her that I always wanted purple hair but needed to find a way to make it professional - and she was able to do it. To say I trust her with my hair is an understatement. She is also just an amazing person to be in a chair for and does a spectacular job every time. I highly recommend her!!

Carissa the color chemist will have you feeling like a goddess from the moment you sit in her chair. She has a beautiful gift of consulting and executing beautiful healthy hair that remains fresh as it grows out.

Carissa is the best for blondes! I always get compliments on my hair and her method of foil makes the grow out gradual and natural looking. In fact, my hair is so improved since going to Carissa that I don’t like looking at old photos! Carissa also has a great personality and I love my appointments, and her loft is calm and inviting.

Carissa is such an amazing stylist. Her personality is sunny, warm and inviting. Her salon is so cute and totally fits her Arizona roots, love the pastel sunset tones and succulents. So beautiful and relaxing! As for my color, she nails my blonde every time! She totally understands dimension and depth, and never over processed my hair. She is a true artist in her craft! I love that she uses olaplex and stays up to date on the latest techniques. I love coming to get my hair done with Carissa, I know you will too!
