See you Soon!!
Hi! I'm so looking forward to your appointment! Don't hesitate to email me with any questions. I will get back to you within 24 hours Tuesday-Saturday.
I updated COVID protocols in JANUARY 2022 so please read though.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE PLEASE WAIT IN YOUR CAR UNTIL I TEXT YOU TO COME ON IN.
DO NOT LOITER ON THE SIDEWALK OUT FRONT.
If you don't have a car email me beforehand and I'll let you in to wait on the back patio.
My address is 6609 Flora St Oakland, CA - equidistant between Mills and the Coliseum. My salon is in the flipped garage next to my house. There is always plenty of street parking on my block - often you can even park right in front of the driveway.
I accept all major credit cards, Venmo, cash, or ApplePay - tips can be the same way you pay (thank you). My prices are listed here.
Even if you have already filled it out, PLEASE fill out this guest form online before you come in.
You will come in through the BIG car garage door and wash your hands.
Until my kid can get vaccinated I will continue to wear a mask and expect you do to the same. Please wear a N95, KN95 or KF94 mask with straps around your ears and not your head.
We are essentially outside so please dress for the weather. Please avoid bulky collars, hoods and turtlenecks. If it is below 60 degrees outside I may close the back windows and turn on a space heater- large front door will still be open for air flow.

Before you come in please familiarize yourself with my COVID protocols below.
A few days before your appointment, you'll receive a text reminder with an option to confirm or reschedule. Please let me know 48 hours in advance if you need to change or cancel your appointment or you will be charged 50% of the service cost.
If you have been exposed at all, even if a family member with no symptoms, please cancel your appointment. I will still enforce my 48 hour or 50% cancellation rate unless you have financial hardship.
I am vaxxed and twice boosted.
When you arrive PLEASE WAIT IN YOUR CAR and check in on my Vagaro booking app or text me that you have arrived 510-473-5134
I am rapid testing once a week.
For color services I have a phone charger, magazines, beverages and snacks.
I expect you to wear a mask the entire time that has straps around your ears not your head.
Seeing a new stylist is always a little nerve-racking. My number one priority is listening so that you can feel comfortable and confident. I LOVE PHOTOS! Photos of your face shape, your hair when you LOVE it, your dream hair. Photos are really helpful right now when I can't see your full face.
Email me with any questions- email is ALWAYS the best way to contact me (except to tell me you are here waiting). I will get back to you within 24 hours Tuesday-Saturday.
80% of great hair is what you do at home, so I will walk you through how to care for your new look, including product suggestions and styling tips. In between appointments, I offer quick studio product pickups as well as convenient online ordering for some of my product lines.
Color and style maintenance varies,
but in general, I recommend:
Short haircut 4-6 weeks
Long haircut 8-12 weeks
Ouidad Certified cut 12-16 weeks
Root retouch 4-8 weeks
Toning gloss 4-6 weeks
Highlights 8-12 weeks
Balayage 3-6 months
I am no longer prebooking appointments myself, but you can book your own appointments online 24/7.
