Hairstylist for long hair w/ split ends

Oct 2008

I'm looking for a good hairstylist in or near Berkeley, who is good with long hair and split ends. I really like the person I've been going to and the way he cuts my hair but I want to find someone who knows how to do ''dusting'' and really deal with the splits. Anyone have good experience with a stylist who has taken good car of your ends? anon

I have had several great cuts from Kipp Hamilton, owner of O Maru Salon at Shattuck and Rose. 510-549-3610. Most recently he took me from overgrown, damaged, thick hair, down to about my bra band, to a lovely, layered short bob just above my shoulders. My partner said ''Wow!'' And it actually looked just about as good after washing it! kl

I don't have a stylist specifically for long hair with split ends but I can tell you that for a number of years, I refused to have my stylists do more than a trim because I wanted to maintain the length. I was constantly battling split ends because the trims never really got to all of the splits. One stylist finally convinced me to have a major cut for the health of my hair and that really solved the split end issue. My hair has never looked so good and I have no more split ends. I couldn't believe that that was all it took. I had been blaming it on dry hair to combing it while wet, etc. Just my 2 cents in case you haven't gone this route. good luck. anonymous

La Nana salon in Albany/Berkeley area is the place you need to go.There are a couple of good hairstylist there.I have gotten my hair cut with two of them(Betty and Cissy) a couple of time since last two years and i was very happy each time.I have long hair with layers but no split ends. The phone# is: 510-525-8700 Susan
