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.

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.

Hair Color and Cut

I randomly selected this salon because I was frustrated after leaving housing court. I was so surprised to receive such an amazing relaxing shampoo followed by a wonderful haircut with a even better reasonable price. I returned a second time to get my hair colored with a rather complex coloring with low lights and highlights and I was so impressed with the care and interest that was taken by John the stylist and the owner. It was great. I am so thrilled by the color and cut again and with a wonderful reasonable price. I am hooked by this nice and service oriented friendly salon that I am taking all my hair needs here and telling all my friends. Thanks John for your attention to how I look and feel. Mary

My lifetime salon!

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!

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!!!
