  • good stylist for young woman with long dark straight hair

    (1 reply)

    We'd appreciate recommendations for a good, engaging hair stylist for a 25year old with long, dark straight hair.  She's in a wonderful wedding and wants to get ideas, a good cut and perhaps some highlights.   Thx much 

    I have been going to Karen Jones for over 10 years. I absolutely love her. Not only is she a great person and fun to hang out with but does an awesome job on my straight thick hair. Over the years we've done long styles and short styles and bangs. I've always liked the results. She is at the New Florence Salon in Emeryville. http://www.newflorencesalon.com/new-page-1/

Stylist with experience with up-dos

Feb 2007

I am looking for a hair stylist for my wedding (someone who has experience with up-dos). We are getting married in Berkeley so I would prefer someone in the East Bay.


I got married last September at the Brazil Room in Tilden Park. My amazing hairstylist/make-up applier was Shila at Zahra Salon in Richmond (''Hilltop Mall?''). 510-223-3031 She is super sweet, super competent and reasonably priced - she took my suggestions and made changes during the trial to get what I was looking for. And my hair the day of my wedding was awesome - exactly what I wanted - my bridesmaids looked great, too (though they had less time to spend on their hair and be specific about what they wanted since they didn't have trials). You can go to her salon in RIchmond (which I did) or you can have her come to you to for an extra fee. Her mom also does styling, if you have several bridesmaids you want all done at once. But Shila is really the expert. I really think she did an amazing job with both my hair and make-up, and I highly, highly recommend her to any bride. Good luck! - contact me if you want more info. shoshana

Hi, I am matron of honour for a wedding on April 5th and have been let down by the hairdresser I wanted to come and do the bride's hair. I am not from the area originally and need to come up with someone FAST. Does anyone have any recommendations or know someone who can spare an hour or so on April 5th. They don't need to cut - only to style and dress the bride's hair. Desperate Matron of Honour.
