Let’s face it. Hair extensions are in. Whether you are looking to change your look or need to add volume or length, consider the following stylists to work on your locks.
240 University Ave.
Palo Alto, CA 94301
This full-service salon recommends that clients schedule a complimentary consultation to explore which type of hair extensions best suit them and their way of life. The salon offers adhesive-based and keratin-bond hair extensions. All first-time guests will receive a copy of the book, “Life as a Daymaker” by David Wagner, founder of Juut. The book covers his philosophy on “daymaking,” meaning “making someone’s day,” and explains how David and his wife, Charlie, came to realize that focusing their creative attention on clients can change their lives. This salon’s perspective is that highlighting a person’s personal values and inner beauty can lead to a more fulfilling life.
744 San Antonio Road, Suite 8
Palo Alto, CA 94303
Focused on providing clients with personalized attention, this salon sees one client at a time in an environment created for comfort and privacy. J. Angel Ortiz, a former corporate trainer and now owner of J Salon, envisioned a location with a very intimate setting. She wanted a place where clients could communicate freely without the distractions of stylists working next to each other. Ortiz offers Dream Catchers, a kind of hair extension placed as individual strands and less likely to damage hair.
