I have been going to Karina for over five years. Before Karina I never consistently went to the same salon. Karina made me feel comfortable immediately and did such an amazing job I went back and have gone back every few months since

For those of you who are looking for simplicity when entering a hair salon and not a whole lot of needless fussing I recommend Pomona.

After having been to several salons in the Slope where there are four different people working on your hair it was finally nice to find a salon where one person takes care of you from start to finish.

After having my hair highlighted many times by different stylists I finally found Pomonas where Laurielistened and understood just how I wanted my hair to look. Laurie did a great cut . I just wanted a simple trim . My hair is long and she took off just the right amount with a little layering . Then came the highlights which honestly no one has been able to get just right until now.

At the end of the day I am one very happy customer and I will be sure to be back to see Laurie again. And just to add, Lori Is one lovely person .

With sooo many salons in Park Slope to choose from I finally found my way home.

Karina is so nice and professional.
She did my hair real nice. She was so understanding to your needs, she was like a friend but a really great hair dresser at the same time.
I would highly recommend her!!

Pros: She's patient and super nice

I've never been to Pomona, given that I live thousands of miles from Brooklyn. But, in looking up my old friend, I've found this link to her salon. And here's what I can say: Laurie was a fine-art major in college who did remarkable work sculpting a block of marble. So it's no surprise that, as her customers report, she also shapes beautiful heads of hair. She's a lovely human being, too, and has been ever since the seventh grade.

Laurie, at Pomona Beauty Sanctuary, single-handedly assuaged my biggest wedding crisis. I cold-called her after my hair/make-up options fell through at the last minute, and she managed my panic quite well. She called me precisely when she said she would, found time for me to come in for a trial within days, and adjusted her schedule to get me ready in time on my big day. \r
\r
I went in for my trial knowing only that I wanted a very simple up-do and natural-looking makeup. After some discussion, she suggested a low bun that turned out to be precisely the look I wanted. On my wedding day, Laurie came in early to accomodate my schedule and even touched up my mother's hair at the last minute. We were both thrilled with the results and appreciative that the cost was so reasonable. \r
\r
I cannot recommend Laurie highly enough.

Cons: none that I experienced

I went to Pomona Beauty Sanctuary today to get a color and cut, and I couldn't be happier! I wanted a short, funky style, but I have a round face and wasn't sure what would flatter me. I showed Laurie some of my ideas and told her to do what she thought would look good. She gave me an amazing cut that flattered my face well, and was exactly what I wanted! She also colored it with a dark red and highlighted it with some blonde and another shade of red. I have never had such a wonderful experience at a salon! She is the best hairdresser I've ever been to in my life. I highly recommend her! You won't regret it!

I went for the first time to see Karina. Indeed, she is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. i got low lights which were well done (alhtough not exactly what i had in mind). However, i asked Karina to cut off a little off (split ends) but insisted on keeping my long length (this hair growing has been a long a patience- demanding process). My hair was below my breast and is now a LITTLE over shoulder length! (no exaggeration). \r
I know hair dressers always cut more than you ask but in this case it way too much (dont care how much ""it needed it""!). Would go back for coloring but not for cut.

Pros: salon, products, atmosphere, small and intimate

Cons: the results not as expected

.

I have frequented this salon and my first experience was positive. My hair looked great and the highlightswas perfect. The second time I went, they did a terrible job on my hair, uneven bangs, too much lowlights, too little highlights. I have decided to go elsewhere even though its convenient and the atmosphere is relaxed.

I'm thrilled to have discovered Karina 5 years ago. I have fine, limp hair that's naturally a mousy brown color and it's never looked better! Karina is talented and flexible with hair and has a warm, supportive personality. She's always creative about varying my look when I need a change and has great ideas about what will look best for the season. And her haircuts always grow out beautifully.\r
\r
Karina also did my hair and make-up for my wedding and I see her several times a year for different cuts and highlights. I love Pomona!

I just wanted to comment on the latest review. I recently went to Karina, and brought my daughter in a few days later for a cut. My friend goes to her, and have for years, and have only spoken highly of her. I got a great cut, and she was very sweet and professional. My daughter who had a fear of getting her hair cut, had a great time. Karina is very good with kids. She now keeps asking, when we are going back to visit? I cant imagine, why this client didnt go back and had Karina fix her hair. Dont think that would have been a problem! It sounds like an honest mistake.\r
I will definitely go back to Karina, and so will my daughter!

I was looking for someone to give me a nice haircut online, and because of the great reviews written about Karina, I thought I should give it a try. The result was the worst hair cut ever, I asked for layered hair and she layered only on one side and now seems unven, everyone tells me its obvious and they laugh when I tell them I paid $60 for it. Avoid if you could. and I am sure the people who are posting those comment are her friends and family.

I am someone who has been very cheap about haircuts until I had my haircut at Pomona with Karina. It was worth every penny. She really took the time to ask me what I wanted. She styled it in a way that was exactly what we talked about. My hair style now is so easy to maintain and yet still looks good. She did magic on my hair, that's all I can say.\r

I'm getting all my haircuts by Karina because it was the best cut I've ever had.

Pros: best haircut I've ever had

.

For years I was terrified of getting my hair cut, it's curly sometimes, straighter at others, grows at odd angles...I'd had some classic intimidated to say something after and/or crying when I got home experiences.\r
Then I found Karina seven years ago. I remember joking that I was going to have her cut my hair for the rest of my life, because she was around the corner from my house and a sweetheart (I didn't say, but thought: plus what difference does it ever make so I might as well give up and stick with convenient and nice). Well it made a big difference, it was perfect, and each cut, trim and color I've had since then has been also! I am in heaven. Karina never goes wrong because she treats clients the way I imagine she would like to be treated and listens to even the smallest request or new idea. \r
If I get different styles for summer and winter (hats, humidity...) or a slight variation in color just for fun, Karina remembers the one from six months ago, even several years if I've made a big change and want to go back! She knows my hair and treats each client equally as an individual as far as I can tell. \r
Something I dreaded has turned into a wonderful treat. The salon is tiny, lovely, relaxing, with quiet music that turns out to be from a great collection if you care to pay attention. Too often we can't stop talking though. We have gotten to know each other's families (mine in person and Karina's through stories), and look forward to news. Even the the other Pomona clients seem to be particularly nice people and the tiny shop (one other chair) occasionally gets into a conversation. For those who don't like to chat, I've seen sleepy silent faces in the chair, taking a look when Karina asks for an opinion, and looking as happy as everyone else when they finally get up...which usually means as thrilled as I am.\r
Treat yourself to a great haircut, a wonderful little sanctuary, and an hour with a young woman who cares about her work and cares about others.

I have been a client of Karina's for at least 7 years now. I began going to her after I heard she was excellent with curly or wavy hair, but I have also referred friends with straight hair and they love going to her, too. She is great at coming up with ways to update or change my style and she's also a good listener when I have ideas or concerns. Both Karina and Laurie are very friendly and easy-going; Pomona is not an intimidating kind of salon. After my appointments I always leave looking great and feeling great.

Karina's been cutting my hair for about four years now and I won't let anyone else near it. My hair is thick and difficult to cut and in the past I've had some people mangle it. But when I walk out of Pomona I always look good ... at least I know my hair does.

If you're in need of a new 'do, be sure to visit Pomona Salon and ask for Karina. Every time I go, I let Karina work her magic. She always surprises me with a beautiful cut and color that makes me feel beautiful. Every time I leave the salon, my hair feels silky soft and I feel much younger, prettier and refreshed. In all the years I've been going to Karina, I've never gotten the same hairstyle twice... she is creative, imaginitive and great fun to spend an hour with! I've referred all of my friends to her. Karina can work wonders with straight hair like mine and she specializes in curly hair too! This stylist has it all... give her a try!

If you are in need of a great style, color & conversation too, then you have to check out Karina at Pomona Salon in the heart of the hip & trendy, Park Slope, Brooklyn! The salon is convenient to transportation, is very quaint & always personal. They don't have blaring music or a wild atmosphere. They do have a very charming & relaxing retreat for all your senses. Karina is very good at listening to your desires for a new look, while offering her best recommendations. I haven't seen anything that she cannot do with hair, from edgy to professional, thick or fine, curly to pin straight (like mine), she can create the style you desire, at very reasonable rates too! Karina is a great stylist who gets to know her clients & their families & best of all, she loves what she does & it shows! Give her one try & you'll be hooked!

Pomona is a very charming salon in a great area. Its small and cozy, so I always feel relaxed when Im there. I have been going to Karina for over 7 years. I followed her from Aveda, and I really look forward to my appointment. She always makes me feel like a new person. She is a great listener and very fun to talk to. Karina has curly hair like me, and knows how to give a great cut that works for my hair. I was never able to find anyone, who knew how to cut curly hair before. She gives great advise on styling products, and how to style curly hair. The colors she uses are gentle, and makes my hair feel great and shiny. Im now addicted to highlights. I refer my coworkers and friends to her, so now we keep up with each other through Karina

The Pomona Salon is a wonderful salon. Both hairstylists are very personal and extremely skilled. I have been going to Karina for many years and feel amazing every time I walk out. Karina is able to give me the exact color and cut that makes me look and feel great, without repeating the same style each time. Karina is up-to-date, cutting-edge, personal and above all, listens to what style you are looking for. \r
Give Karina a try, she is worth it!

Laurie, Pomona's owner, has created a lovely, friendly, unpretentious atmosphere in her salon, and she is a talented stylist. I find it very relaxing to go to Pomona. To respond to the previous review -- yes, Laurie does tend to run a bit late in her scheduling; if I'm pressed for time I'll call ahead to see if there will be a wait. I think the cost ($50) is reasonable.

I was initially lured into the shop by the pretty decor and atmosphere and was happy with my cut and color. However, I returned several months later and the pricing went way up ($50 for a trim!). For that price, you would really expect a nicer blow out/style and a decent shampoo job (water is usually cold and forget about a nice scalp massage). Being that the owner is the only one working there, she seems to be a bit disorganized and running late. If you need a hair cut without the frills, then this is a good place. But I like to get more for my money.....

Pros: cute place, nice salon owner, in south slope

Cons: , no price posting

The owner (and sole stylist) is a very relaxed and talented hairdresser. She listened well and gave me a haircut that I was very pleased with. Compared to most salons in NY- the experience was great and CHEAP.

I'll admit, I was attracted to this place because of the cute anthropologie decorations and MOP hair products. But I will continue to go because I got a great haircut that took time at a decent value. This place is a find!
