Karen is such a great person. I love going to get my hair done. She is bubbly, exudes warmth and wisdom, gives great head massages and my hair always looks fantastic leaving the salon. She always gives me a great cut and color, and she will let you know what will work for your face shape, coloring etc.

Emily K. Durham, NC 10/21/2018: "I have been going to Karen for years. There are plenty of salons where I live (Chapel Hill/Carrboro) but Karen is worth the drive! Karen knows exactly what I want, even before I do. She exemplifies service-- she listens, is open to suggestions/feedback, helpful, experienced, and well-versed on current styles. The new location is beautiful! I look forward to each appointment. Thank you Karen!"

Chandra R. Hillsborough, NC 2/28/2017 "I visited Karen today and I am more than pleased, as well as relieved. After enduring haircuts, styles, and color from several stylists in the last 18 months and never being satisfied, that was not the case today. Karen listened to my frustrations and desires for my hair and delivered. The highlights that she weaved back into my hair were beyond my expectation. She even hid gray naturally that none of the other stylists ever touched. She told me color was her expertise and that is definitely true. She also, did a cool little trick with color to hide a gap in my hair from a previous bad haircut. Thank you so much, Karen! I'm so happy!"
