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

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'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!

Good Job - Japanese Straightening

I went to Headquarterz Hair Salon to have a Japanese Straightening for my hairs last week. The result came out to be very good. My hair looks like silk. When I touch my hair, I feel my hair is very soft. I love my new hairstyle so much. It makes me look very young and pretty. Yeah, the price is reasonable when you compare with other Hair Salons in Midtown. I definitely will go back there for a haircut in the future.

I always had thin hair and a pathetic hair volume. I tried out at this salon and after a hair cut, my hair looked volumous and it even made my face structure stand out. I have big cheek bones, but after my hair cut, all my friends thought I has lost weight! I was so happy with this Salon that I recommeded it to whole family and now all of us have become their customers. They are great at extensions too! All of the staff are nice and patient. Their price is very reasonable for such outstanding service.

I've recently been to headquarterz to do the Japanese Straightening my friends told me of. They were great in handling every single one of my needs from helping me get my coffee to the great hair i ended up with. When they were done with the japanese straightening, my hair was absolutely GORGEOUS. i was in love with my hair, and certainly look forward to going there again.

Hair Straightening Service

I am very impressed with Head Quarterz! Steve Kong took the time to test my hair and ask many questions to determine the amount of straightening product necessary to achieve the results that I wanted. In addition to listening to my concerns and requests, Steve and his staff made certain that I was comfortable and at home during my entire 3 hour process. My hair looks fantastic and the price is hard to beat! I highly recommend.
