My hair is like silk

I had my hair straightened here after seeing it in this magazine. Head Quarterz is almost like a science lab! They measured my hair for thickness & did all these tests. . they really tailor the treatment to you. Steve, who did the straightening, is very nice and serious about the process. And of course the price is very good compared to other salons. All in all very good!

A VERY Lucky Find --- Simply A Downtown Gem!!!

I've been a patron of Head Quarterz Hair Salon for the past three years and considerate it A VERY Lucky Find--- Simply A Downtown Gem!!! That is because the salon's entire staff is professional and kind, and its selection of necessary services are plentiful - and at very good prices. But, most of all, I think Steve Kong is nothing less than a hair magician, (as I've noted while there on many an occasion)! As he really seems to know exactly what is needed to perfect all types of hair --- from texture, to style, to color and cuts---. I am so happy this salon is receiving such worthy recognition! The magazine made a wonderful choice.

I have been going to Headquarterz for about 5 years. My boyfriend has become a customer, too. Steve is an experienced and skillful hair stylist -- and a really nice guy. Everyone on the staff is friendly and accomodating. To top it off, the prices are reasonable. A definite thumbs up! I'm delighted that they are getting the good press that they deserve.

This hair salon was truly one of a kind. They provided me with excellent service; I've never seen my hair so taken care of. The people of Head Quarterz are highly knowledged in their profession and highly recommended in my point of view.
