I've fought a long battle with my curly hair, and have been getting it straightened for about 6 years, pretty much since the process became available. I've had it done in 4 cities, and on both coasts, so I might not be an expert, but I'm definitely a connoiseur - and Head Quarterz is by far the best I've seen. They are the only people that have ever given me the option of leaving a little bit of wave in my hair, they were meticulous and attentive, and took the time to ask for my opinions on all of the little details like which direction I like my bangs to go. They even took into account how my body temperature would affect the chemicals! Recommend it to anyone. I also got my hair cut there later, and it was the only good $40 haircut I've ever been able to find in a major city!

I have been straightening my hair for years in a different state, so when I moved to the city I was nervous about getting it done by someone new. It was such a great experience, and everyone was so nice and attentive. My hair came out silky and soft! I did comparative shopping, and it was cheaper here. The final product was amazing, and I now have a salon in the city!

I was introduced to this salon a few years ago by a friend and I've been going there ever since. I just cant seem to find anyone else that can cut my hair the way Steve does. I trust Steve completely with my hair because he is one of the few that gives his professional opinion on what would look good and what would not, so I am always happy with my haircuts there. I was just there yesterday and there was a lady (forgot to ask for her name) that washed my hair. I was soooo comfortable; I could have fallen asleep. The service there is always great and they have the most comfortable salon chairs! There just isnt anything negative I can say about this salon! =D

You Must Go Here for Japanese Hair Straightening!!!!!

Steve Kong is absolutely brilliant with japanese hair straightening/thermal reconditioning; and the best deal in town!!! I have thin, fine hair and the last two very prestigious uptown salons ruined my hair, both times! I'm willing to spend any amount to have it done right. Steve Kong tested my hair and mixed a formula of straightening product that would be strong enough to keep it straight but still keep it healthy and shiny. He discussed the formula and then recorded everything he did to my hair. Same with color. I thought I had to pay for a fancy salon to have it done right, but I'm looking no further for straightening and color!!!! Thanks Steve for being brilliant, and still keeping your prices low!!!

Ask for John! If you're ever confused about what hair style you should get, simply ask him for advice and he'll come up with styles that are unlike anyone else's! If you want a hair style that's unique and hip, get JOhn and nobody will ever be able to copy your look. This place is friendly and easy to find. They open til late so if you're coming from work, you don't have to feel rushed. What's best about this place is that all of their stylists are opened to opinions and they'll actually accept what you suggest! I've never visited another Salon again!

My daughter brought me to the salon after raving about Steve Kong. After using many hair stylists I was skeptical. I am now a believer! His knowledge of hair, color, new trends, and techniques is impressive. I gave him carte blanche with my hair and love the color and style. I also got an easy lesson on how to style my own hair. The salon staff provides excellent service and I can get one stop shopping with waxing, facial, and a pedicure. I would rate the overall product to be an excellent value.

I came to this hair salon about 10 years ago and has been a loyal customer ever since. There is no better place to cut your hair than Headquarterz because the passion for the job each stylist has. They know the science behind the profession such as when it comes to coloring hairs. Steve Kong is one of the stylish who is superb with the styles that suits me. It is no brainer to my loyalty.
