I highly recommend SIV! Also, just to clarify on some of the other reviews, SIV is no longer a "learning" salon; this changed a couple of years ago, so the stylists who work here are experienced. Emily C. has been my stylist for over a year, and I have been more impressed by her than any stylist I have ever had anywhere (and I have searched high and low for the right person!) She listens to requests, but is also knowledgeable enough about styles and applying them to different skin tones and facial structures to be able to make recommendations. The hair color she has applied on my hair has received more compliments than ever before! Additionally, she doesn't push Aveda product, but if asked, is extremely knowledgable about it and can make great recommendations.
However, even more than her expertise with hair, I appreciate that she is genuine and completely unpretentious, which is rare at most of the Dosha salons! I will be a loyal customer as long as she does hair!
Additionally, I have never had a problem finding street parking around SIV; they are more affordable than any of the other Dosha salons; the front desk staff is always friendly and knowledgeable (again, rare at other Dosha salons.)
I would highly recommend SIV, and especially Emily C. for hair.
