Re: East Bay stylist for cury hair?
I strongly recommend Gail Hassall (510) 691-2052 who has a chair at the Circle Salon on Colusa at Kensington Circle. Not only is Gail very capable, she has VERY curly hair. A satisfied client for over 10 years

Re: Hair stylist for very thick, frizzy/curly hair
Try Inca at Circle Salon, 510-234-7800. She has done a great job at transforming my look. I have thick frizzy hair, and she has cut my hair so that it frames my face very nicely, and I get tons of compliments. happy with my hair cut

Re: Cut and color for curly hair
Try Inca at Circle Salon 525-7752. She is there on Sundays. She is kind of a mellow person, but has tons of experience. She used to have her own salon. She has done a great job on my thick curly hair, tho I haven't done coloring, so can't speak to that. Circle Salon is at the Kensington circle. happy with my hair cut

Re: Need hip haircut for long, curly hair (Oct 2004)
I have naturally curly hair and have been going to Emily Lyman for about seven years now. I've always been pleased with the results (although I should mention that I've kept my hair at shoulder-length during the past seven years). She's currently at the Circle Salon in Kensington, (510) 287-9059. Ann
Re: Hair stylist for cut and color (July 2003)
Emily Lyman has been my hair stylist since 1985. She has cut and styled my hair to my absolute satisfaction. I have referred her to at least four of my friends/colleagues who are also now long-time clients. (curly hair, wavy hair, staight, fine hair - she can do it all...) She has also styled/cut my teenage daughter's hair with magical results -- pleasing a hard-to- please 14 year old (and her mom)! I'd follow her anywhere, (in fact I have...) and can recommend her with 100% confidence. Emily works at Circle Salon in Kensignton ( minutes North of Berkeley) Her phone # is 287-9059. Judy
Re: Stylist for Fine, Straight Hair (March 2002)
I also have very straight and thin hair and found a hairdresser that I have been with for at least three years. Her name is Theresa Kokoletsos from Circle Hair Salon @ 734-3572. She does a fabulous job and my hair looks much fuller than it actually is. I do blow-dry it every morning though, so that might help a bit.

I really like Teresa Kokoletsos, who works at Circle Salon on Colusa in Kensington. She cuts my hair, my 5-year-old's and my teen's and everyone is happy. Especially me, and I am picky. Her number is (510) 333-0828, and you can certainly say that I referred you. And I think I originally got her number from this mailing list.

Hair stylist recommendation: Theresa Kokoletsos at 510/333-0828. Her salon is Circle Hair Salon in Kensington (tho' it is just a block from the Berkeley line). Theresa has cut and highlighted my hair on several occassions. She has done a fantastic job. I recently recommended her to a friend and my friend not only appreciated the quality of work she performed (cut + highlight), but found her a very pleasant person (which she is). Good luck in your search! Suzanne
