"4 years later and my love affair with Elixir is HOTTER than ever! I wrote a review a few years ago, and as good as that was, my "hair happiness" has only grown. Both salons are great, Alex IS the amazing.

Here's why I am reviewing again; after many years at a high $$$ SF salon I came to Elixir and never went back. After my last color/ cut with Alex I was w/ a friend when we stopped in another at AVEDA salon to check out product. The stylist at the desk asked if I had on AVEDA color- mind you my hair doesn't "look" colored at all, very close to my natural shade only better, shiny & light reflective. She wanted to know who did it (Alex @ Elixir) which everyone there seemed to know. After leaving the salon I was nearly knocked down by a woman who was a client at that salon- "who is this Alex person?" she demanded! She planned to xcl her next appt. and run to Alex sight unseen after seeing my (get ready) 4 week old color/ cut. What more can I say? Alex rocks and that NEVER happened when I went to the $$$$ SF salon!"

Laura Pellaton (owner and hairstylist at Elixir Salon in El Cerrito) is an excellent hair stylist. She has just the right balance of listening to what you want, but also offering good suggestions if you need a little push. Her styles

Pros: awesome cuts & colors, wonderful head massage, easy parking

If you think thats the best hair salon, tha obviously you haven't been to any other salon. I think the service is okay. they were friendly and met my personal needs, BUT NOT MY HAIR NEEDS! my hair was washed and treated with all thesef ancy shampoos and woopdy-do, BUT when it came to drying the lady just went through my hair once with a round brush and i looked like i had just been hit by electricity! I usually get my hair done in ALGERIA, and thats a third-world country and they do it 10 times better than here, or at least this salon. So please do more research and try other salons because this one isn't it!!

I can't say enough good things about Alex G. and Elixir! I had been going to a really high end SF salon and paying $$$ for cuts & color. I lost my hair twice to illness and was reluctant to switch stylists after 10+ years with the same person. Those previous cuts were technically good but just not "me" -I usually had some "hair trauma" each time I left the salon. With Alex I look forward to each visit (close to 3 yrs now!)

I don't miss the lattes, wine, designer kimonos or attitude of my former salon-and really appreciate the service at elixir.

Alex actually LISTENS to you, unlike my previous experience where the stylists and then colorist had their own agenda- She nails it every time, cut, color & experience. She was amazingly patient with all my concerns & issues and gives honest feedback.

My ONLY reluctance to posting this review is it will make it even harder to see her!
And yes, I also go to the N. Berkeley Salon (Hopkins St.) for other services & when Alex is seeing clients there too.

Pros: Great team, lovely, relaxed space

Cons: Still looking & haven't found one yet

I'm new to the area and needed to find a salon that had some edge, but not too much. I got a great cut from Amber who listened to wanted to do with my hair and cut it exactly the way I hoped. The salon is small but very cute, clean, professional. Downside, no receptionist. But, they call you back right away. I drive from Oakland to visit them. Worth the trip!
