I know the owner/hair stylist before she started Salon 106 (about 7 years). I continue to see her b/c she is just that good and she does a great job in giving you the haircut you want (I'm Asian and have straight/heavy hair). Both hairstylist here are great (Anna and Tina). They occasionally have a male hairstylist (Tao?) that helps as well and he did a wonderful job on my girlfriends hair. About $25 for haircut. If you don't mind the drive into Mercer Island, it's well worth the trip. I recommend to anyone; however, I especially recommend to Asian guys who have hard to cut hair or anyone who is particular about their haircut.
