For years I had been paying way too much at a Gene Juarez for a mediocre haircut. I was treated TERRIBLY by my stylist but was scared to go somewhere else. I had to leave Gene Juarez because after 4 years with one stylist I critiqued the work he'd done. From that point on he refused to cut my hair. All this to say, when I met Zdenka I was blown away that you could go to the salon, be treated with kindness and respect and even come out with wonderful hair! Zdenka is the most talented stylist I've ever known. She is so innovative and always trying new things on me. Her color skills are especially wonderful. I will never leave her! The salon is nice, its fun to drink wine and relax while enjoying Zdenka's wonderful personality and people watching on 1st avenue. Everyone should give Zdenka a try!
