The owner, Mashid, cut & styled my hair & she was brilliant! Our hair dresser moved out of the area to LA & so we've had difficulty finding someone as good as him. I had a really negative experience at another salon in Irvine, so I hadn't been to another hairdresser for several months. I was very wary of trying out a new place but my hair was looking so bad that I really needed to take the plunge. Even when a hair dresser cuts well, I don't usually like the way they dry/style my hair, but in this case, I really loved it when it was finished. All this without a picture even to show what I was after! I will definitely be back & I will be taking my daughter there too. In fact, I usually think it's very extravagant to make an appointment just for styling, but now I feel that if I have a special occasion to attend, I will definitely think of making an appointment with Mashid.
