Re: Hairdresser for short, thick Asian hair
My hair person, Alyssa, at Panache Spa on Shattuck & Cedar is GREAT!
I have short, straight Asian hair--she gives me the cutest cuts! My
18 year old daughter goes to her too. She's a transplant from SoCal
(finance at Cal). I highly recommend her. Her number: 841.5555.
Re: Hair and color expert for thick hair
I highly recommend my hair stylist at Panache on College 843-3255 my
stylists name is Leana. She does a wonderful job on my sort of
curly/frizzy thick hair. Have tried several stylists from high end
places to mid and by far have gotten the best service and results
with Leana.She is very meticulous and listens to what I want. In
addition I just recently took my young daughter who has very thick
long hair (and dreads getting her hair trimmed b/c she has had some
hairstylists that were not gentle). After her shampoo and trim she
exclaimed ''I want to go there again!!'' (to the 'beauty parlor')
(after having to convince her to go!)--and I didn't pay the same fee
as for an adult cut.
Re: Need a skilled stylist that has reasonable prices
I have some gray hair that I like to color, however I had a heck of
a time finding a colorist/stylist who could do a quality job and
get it so my hair looked beautiful and natural and that the results
were consistent, not one dimensional. I lucked out when I found
Leana McShane at Panache on College in Berkeley. I have been going
to her now for about 2 years and now my sister and mom do as well!
She is just wonderful, she takes her time, has the experience that
shows in her work, and her prices are very reasonable and she works
Sundays!!!! (I work full time so this great). She does a wonderful
job of stylying and cutting as well,I like to also get the
conditioning treatments sometimes too, and oh did I mention her
massage! Anyways, her number is 510-843-3255, she works Mondays,
Sundays and (I think ) Tuesday and will be adding Saturdays
starting Feb. (she's a local mom too!)
No gray for me not yet!
Re: Looking for good haircut
I can highly recommend Myong at Panache - 2928 College. She does both
my and my husband's hair (very different, but both very well!) The
salon number is 843-3255.
Re: Cool & funky haircutter in East Bay
Myong at Panache on College is fantastic.2928 College Ave, Berkeley, 510- 843-3255
Re: Stylist for Asian hair in Berkeley/Albany
I used to be a hairstylist in a large salon near the UC so I got
to watch all of the stylists work. One of the most talented
stylists I have ever seen, particularly with haircutting is
Myong. She works at Panache on College now 843-3255. I have 4
hairdressers in my family and they used to be the only ones to
touch my hair. Now Myong is the only person I will let touch my
hair. When you meet her for the first time bring a photo. After
she gets to know you she will just know what to do.
Re: Reasonably priced cut & color (Mar 2005)
My stylist is not cheap, but I think she is reasonably priced
and she does a very good job (she cuts and has colored and
highlighted my hair). Haircuts cost 45 and color I believe is
60. Her name is Leana Mendenhall and she is at Panache on
Re: Highlights & lowlights in Berkeley or WC (Mar 2005)
Leanna Mendenhall at Panache on College Ave. (843-3255) does my
highlights and I am very pleased with them and with her.
Re: Cheap Haircut (Aug 2004)
I know this doesn't directly address what you are seeking --
great haircut for $15/$25 -- but I thought I'd post my
recommendation anyway just in case you had no luck finding
someone in your range. I cannot recommend more highly Susanne
(pronounced Susannah) Adler, who works out of Panache on College
Avenue [2928 College; Berkeley Ph: (510) 843-3255.] I have been
to many hairstylists/colorists over the years and she is
absolutely, by far, the best. Incredible cuts that last and grow
out nicely. She's also a talented and creative colorist. I
think her cut is around $35/40 -- color [for hours of tedious
highlighting...!]around (?) $60/$70.
Re: Post-partum Style Disaster (April 2004)
to Panache on College and Yossi (or Yoshi?) gave me a great new
cut without changing my look dramatically, and best yet, its
wash and wear. He has a young child as well so he was
sympathetic to my needs.
Re: Hair stylist for cut and color (July 2003)
I highly recommend Suzanna Higgins at Panache on College Avenue
(next to Papyrus on the block north of Ashby). I have been
going to her for over 5 years, and she has been cutting my
husband's hair for 6. She initially saved me from a disastrous
haircut from someone else, and she has earned my total trust (I
will pick up a magazine, give her the parameters of what I want
(i.e., ''chop it off'' or ''just take a little'' -- at this point,
she picks the style and color for me) and I don't feel a need to
look up until she's done. She does a fantastic cut as well as
She's also very sweet as a person and it is always delight to
spend an hour or so in her chair. Her prices are moderate (I
confuse her price since I give her a substantial tip -- but I
think a cut is around $30 or $35). The phone # is 843-3255
Re: stylist who does a great job cutting short hair? (May 2003)
I'm so glad you asked! I'm always happy to recommend our
stylist at Panache on College (2928 College Ave, Berkeley, 510-
843-3255), Susanna. I have short hair and she is the best
stylist I've found, also does great color and other hair
lengths as well. She is completely fabulous and you'll never
want to go to anyone else! I think her prices are very
reasonable, like $35 for a haircut, etc. Just let her know that
we sent you.
