Phoenix Rising Salon & Day Spa
I live in Montclair and am looking for a new stylist in the
village. I was wondering whether anyone had tried Rising Phoenix
Salon and Day Spa. Any recommendations for color & a great cut?
I had a great stylist/colorist at Phoenix but she has moved a block away to
Natural Expressions on LaSalle. I initially went to Phoenix because she came
so highly recommended. Her name is Z Kennedy. She's cut my hair twice and just
recently I had highlights done with her and am more than pleased
I would NOT recommend Phoenix Rising. I got a pedicure there and developed a
horribly aggressive fungus on one of my nails!! I knew something was not
right at the time and I should've said something. They use these rinky dink
contraptions for you to put your feet in, basically a large, scratched-up,
plastic bowl set into a faux stone garden pot! And they wanted $30 for
that???? When I called to complain and ask about how they sanitize their
equiptment the girl I talked to had no idea what I was talking about!! I'm so
mad at their negligence and I want to warn people about this place so I'm glad
Yes, I also got a horrible fungal infection from my pedicure at
Phoenix Salon and Day Spa. The owner completely blew it off.
There is no excuse for this!
won't go back
Re: Blond highlights that look natural
About the blond highlights in the Berkeley/Oakland area. There
is a SUPERB stylist at Phoenix Rising Hair Salon in Montclair
who does very beautiful, natural-looking highlights. She goes by
the name ''Z.'' I'm a new client and am extremely pleased. The
price isn't outrageous either. According to Z, big, bold, blond
highlights are ''way out of style'' anyway. She compares it to
pasta! The fettuccine highlights are over. It's time for
Re: Hair color and style in Alameda or Oakland (Aug 2005)
I have a fantastic stylist/colorist in Montclair. Her name is
Zee Kennedy and she works at Phoenix Rising salon on Moraga
beside the Albertson's parking entrance. For many years she
owned her own salon, but has moved to the Montclair area and is
building a client base here. She has a great eye for a cut to
suit a face and lifestyle and her color effects are very
flattering and natural looking. She also has a fantastic
personality. Very funny, smart and just a great person to
spend an hour with!
Re: Stylist for thick, curly hair (June 2005)
My neighbor Susan is a great hair stylist and just started
working in a new shop in Montclair. She used to commute up to a
shop in the North Bay but now works at Phoenix Rising on at 6400
Moraga Avenue right near Albertson\222s. They also have spa
services at the shop including nails, waxing, body wraps and
massage, although I have never tried any of these services.
Anyhow, if you want to make an appointment call 510-338-1106 and
tell Susan that her neighbor Marcy sent you :)
