Re: Highlights for dark hair that won't turn brassy
I've been following Suki Yim of Tresses on Solano for years. She's very skilled technically and artistically; she is also a painter so she can really envision a great cut for you and make it a reality. I always get a lot of compliments on my cut, most notably from other stylists I know. Mae

Re: Stylist for Asian hair in Berkeley/Albany
I've been going to Suki for over 10 years now and she has always done a great job giving shape and body to my heavy thick (Chinese) hair. I love that I can go there and just describe what I'm not liking about my hair and she always has a solution, and it's not always the same solution! She keeps very current on styles, and I always get compliments on the new do. Best of all, she knows I don't do any maintenance with my hair and won't come back for a few months, so she knows how to give me a cut that is wash-and-wear and will grow out well.

Suki had been a Senior Stylist at Panache on Telegraph for the last several years, but since they suddenly closed down in December, she moved to a salon on Solano called Tresses, upstairs from Sweet Basil. 1734 Solano Ave., ph. # 280.4903. She's been having trouble letting her past clients know where she is, so I am happy to spread the word about her new location.

I know she also specializes in color and Japanese straight perms, but I've never gotten those services from her. Feel free to email with any more questions Mae

Re: Need hip haircut for long, curly hair (Oct 2004)
Jackie at Tresses on Solano is great with curly hair. I'm always amazed at how good my hair looks still, a month after a haircut.
