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?
I have had several great cuts from Kipp Hamilton, owner of
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
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.
La Nana salon&spa 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.
