I have been going here for twenty-seven years now and keep going back even though it's quite a distance for me to go. whenever i try someone a little closer to me, i am never satisfied with the results. this lady knows more about hair cutting than most in my experience. after one of her haircuts, i guarantee you will never be satisfied with anyone else. it's a small shop located in the tower district and she is the owner, operator. she is very tuned in to her customers styles and listens to what you want. she does both men and women and your hair grows out beautifully between cuts, so that it looks good at all stages.
