I love the Essential Baking Company, and my frequent trips there took me by the old location of Salon Zaffa. One one sandwich run, I saw a flyer advertising a special deal at the Salon, and decided I would try it out. I haven't had any beautifying services anywhere else. I've actually moved away from Seattle, and am hoping that I can put up with my growing-out hair until I get back there for a visit and a haircut from the talented Nicola. I've been sending all my friends there ever since my first cut -- and facial. And I just got a voicemail message from one friend who thanked me for recommending the salon, because she got the best haircut she's ever had. It's a friendly place, and you will enjoy your time there, as well as your cut/color/whatever.
