Re: Salon for hip teen haircut
I highly recommend Sara Wielandt at Alexander Pope. Although
thesalon is a bit pricey, they do a great job. I recommend Sara
very highly, she is especially talented, both with women's and
men's cuts -- she is also very style-consious and good at coming
up with the right look to fit a person.
Re: Stylist for thick, curly hair (June 2005)
Nina Carter and Gloria Walters, both at Alexander Pope do
excellent work with my very thick curly hair. I have been going
there for 22 years, and have never been dissatisfied with a cut.
Alexander Pope is on College Avenue, South of the BART station,
in Oakland. The telephone number is 601-5220. Both of them, but
especially Nina, book up at least 3 weeks in advance, so if you
need an apptmnt, make one now.
Re: Spiral perm for Asian hair (Feb 2005)
I love Gloria's perms, at Alexander Pope Salon on College Avenue. She has a ton of
experience. The number there is 601-5520.
Re: Make-up artist for wedding photos (June 2003)
Try Jennifer at Alexander Pope on College Ave. She did a great
job on my hair/makeup for wedding last year and it looked
natural, but showed up well in photographs, and i'm not much of
a makeup person. She's helped several friends and everyone (w/
different styles) has been happy w/ the results.
Re: Mobile Hairdresser for Wedding (March 2003)
Try Jennifer at Alexander Pope on College Avenue. She did a
fabulous job for my wedding and for several friend's weddings as
well. She'll come to your location for a bit more.
Re: good cut and color on a Saturday (Sept 2002)
I highly recommend Larry at Alexander Pope, on College Ave. in
Rockridge. I've been going to him for several years. He's
absolutely great with color (I've had him do highlights and am
always pleased with the results),and he does really great cuts,
too. Try him out!
Re: Stylist for Fine, Straight Hair (March 2002)
I have fine, thin hair (I describe it as little-towheaded-kid
hair) that is very straight. I get it cut by a stylist
named Rainbeau (yes, that's her real name) at the Alexander
Pope salon on College Avenue. I currently have a great
style that I wash, let dry naturally, rub a little goop
in the roots, and spray lightly with hairspray. Takes
me less than 5 minutes of work, lasts all day -- and
looks great. She's a little expensive ($55 per cut)
but worth it to me for the convenience.
