I have never received so many compliments on my hair then after going to Shawna. I went to Nirvana not knowing what I wanted or how to deal with my thin, lifeless hair. Shawna worked her magic and I was like a new woman. Her cut and color fit me to a T.
I can even go months (not that I like to, but life gets busy) without a cut and my hair still holds it shape.
I can't say enough about Shawna and Nirvana. Great Stylist, cool atmosphere, friendly & fun staff, great Aveda perks, love the scalp massage. Can't be beat!

I've been going to Nirvana since it opened its doors. Why? Laure! Years ago -- Laure permed my hair (they were the style back then) and the result was a natural look. She's helped me adapt over the years to new styles to fit the times and my personal look. She's great and the only stylist I trust. I love the ambiance of Nirvana; from the herbal tea when you enter the doors to the tangerine-scented oil for the scalp massage. Laure and Nirvana help me to feel good and look good. And I love that they are Green!

Great ambiance and cool stylists. You feel really comfortable as you walk in and greeted. Someone is always willing to help you and greet you as you come in even if the receptionist is not at her desk.

I've been going here for years now and Shawna is my stylist. It's always hard to find a stylist that will listen to your needs and yet opinionated but not overbearing. Always there to give you constructive hair style criticsm, which I appreciate, but not always agree to. However, she does have a way of convincing you and turns out, she is right every time! Thanks Shawna!

I was a first timer here a few months back, and after reading over the stylists strong points, chose Christine to help shape my very fine just-past-my-shoulders straight hair. First of all, despite the small size of Nirvana, they are super attentive, and make you feel pampered (can't beat the complimentary wine/beer/champagne!), and I wasn't left waiting long at all. Christine was right on time, introduced herself, and def. took time in finding out what type of style I was seeking, as well as how much work I wanted to put into it! And she took the time to listen to all my rantings, wants, needs, etc. :-)

Overall, she did a great job---and this is nothing on "her," but I wish I would've gone a bit shorter, but b/c of my concern over my straight hair flipping out at the bottom in wierd directions, we went a bit longer and it wasn't completely off my neck. I still loved it, but ended up going to another salon a few weeks later to get it totally off my neckline (a nice more extreme angular cut). Now that I'm over my fear, I'd love to re-visit Christine, and tell her to "take it all off!" I'll be in need of a trim again soon, and will def. let her do her work, and not be afraid of going short. The only drawback was that the back room where Christine's station was, was super hot and stuffy (but they were very accomodating when I asked for a bit of AC!).

Cons: little small/cramped, tad bit pricey

Eileen did my hair and make up recently and I loved how I looked after :). Which, yes, I know it's odd to say that about yourself, but Eileen did a great job. I'm getting married in the next couple of months and this salon will do the hair and make up for myself and my bridal party. Can't wait! I'll update this review after my wedding. The only thing though (very minor) was that even though I emailed them a couple of times, I never got a reply back. So, I just had to call them to get an answer to my question. Otherwise, they're great!

I found Nirvana on Yelp because I was new to Los Gatos and so didn't have a network of girls (or gay guys) yet to guide me in my quest for a new stylist. I was particularly looking for an Aveda salon because I was finally having reactions to years of chemically processing my hair and wanted to go natural without going au natural (i.e. prematurely grey).

I have been very pleased with my service from two separate stylists there (the first one left between my visits, presumably to move away with her brand new Spanish--I think--husband). Now I see Christy and she is just great.

They even kept a record of all the highlight colors from my first visit! That was great; so I don't have completely different colored hair every couple months.

Oh! and they are all "green" --they recycle the foils and donate the hair clippings to a non-profit that uses them to mop up oil spills (do not ask me the mechanics of that). Apparently they've had a complete green remodel which I am about to check out at my appointment tommorrow.

I've been getting my hair styled rather than "cut" since I was a young teenager. This hasn't always been easy. Finding a place that has experienced hair stylists and know how to cut men's hair is not as straight forward as on might think.

This is my favorite salon ever! They have the best staff and stylists that are so friendly, talented, and naturally nice. I love that it is certified green and doesn't smell like the average perm and nail salon. They offer great color services using Aveda haircolor and also sell only Aveda products. I highly recommend!

The whole theme is zen and earth conscious. Discounts for recycling bottle caps, and great products. Stylists really listen to what you want, and offer great advice. They also don't push products, but are helpful if you have questions. Also, the salon doesn't smell like chemicals!!

Loves to do hair....and it shows... I would recommend and have recommended her to many of my friends and clients... and now I recommend her to anyone reading this...give her a try...you will not be disappointed...

I like to have my hair short but I do like to change it up every couple of appointments , and I have to say that my stylist Shawna does an amazing job at giving me exactly what I want. She always shows my how to style it and what products will help me keep the look! I have to say I love Shawna and I love NIRVANA!

I really love Janis. I started going to her about 1.5 years ago and I never went looking for another stylist. The staff is very friendly and the offer you a drink while your waiting. The only draw back for me is that there are too many scents so opt not to have the aroma therapy scalp massage. They are still nice enough to do the massage with out the scents.

I love going here to get my hair cut and styled. As soon as I walk in, I am greeted by friendly, smiling faces and offered tea or water while I wait. (They are always on time, I never have to wait long). I love the little personal details that make the experience unique--you receive a complimentary neck and scalp massage and aromatherapy with each hair cut. I've been going to Janis for the past 2 years and I am always happy with my hair cut. She is very friendly, a great listener and a very skilled stylist.

I moved from NYC and was looking for a new, modern Aveda concept salon. Nirvana definitely fits the bill! Kayla gave me exactly what I was looking for and helped me with my products. The staff is very helpful and curtious. They give awesome scalp massages which is so relaxing after a long day at work. I heard about this salon from a friend, and I will definitely recommend to others. Thanks Nirvana!

I came across Nirvana by chance and I am so lucky to have found such a great place! When I moved to the Bay Area, I was looking for a salon but felt stuck. Not only is it hard to leave a good stylist who knows you and has been doing a fantastic job for years, but then I found myself lost when looking for a new one in the area. After some research, I decided to give Nirvana a try. I was booked with Christine, and she did such a wonderful job that I keep coming back! The place is great, everyone is nice, and Christine is VERY talented. I trust her completely. I can see the genuine effort she makes to communicate with me and get a sense for what I want and really cares about doing her very best. I was impressed, and completely satisfied and I'll continue to go to Nirvana and Christine! :)

I used to go to a different hair salon every time I got my hair cut...until I started going to Christine at Nirvana. I dance hula, so I have to keep my hair long, Christine listens to your needs and sticks with the plan. She never cuts it shorter than I ask her to like other stylists I've been to at other salons. Go to Christine! She'll give you the hair style you want!

I've been going here for a few years now and Victoria is my regular stylist. She is awesome! The great part is that she is not the only one. When she has been unavailable, I usually see Janis. She's just as awesome! I've also had Shawna and Raymond do my hair and they both did a great job as well. I've gotten to the point where I trust just about anyone here with my hair, and that's saying a lot! Everyone here is very friendly and professional. This salon has a great atmosphere, unlike any other I've ever gone to. The head massage during the shampoo is to die for, and my favorite part of any visit. The complimentary hand massages aren't bad either (that's right Julina)! This is an Aveda salon so they only use Aveda products, which I love. They also offer complimentary beverages (beer, wine, tea) and cookies. I always look forward to every visit and you will too!

UPDATE: 11-30-09
Since Victoria recently moved out of the area, my stylist now is Julina. She rocks! Just like all the other stylists there, she does a great job. Although I was very sad to see Victoria go, it was nice to know there was a competent and reliable backup stylist (actually many). It really is the only place I would feel comfortable with just about anybody doing my hair. Very consistent service across the board. Thanks everyone for a great experience every time!

The parking lot is great. I drive all the way from san jose just to do my hair for any occassions. I started off with Shawna who was wonderful as well! I received compliments all over the place. She sometimes does not fit into my schedule so Raymond has been doing my hair. When I go out, I get compliments left to right! He knows what he is doing. He will ask me what I will be wearing and come up with the perfect hairstyle. Nirvana is the number one in the silicon valley!!! All the ladies there are so cuteee. They all have their own unique style. Right when you walk in, you know this place has a lot of style. Their service is great. They are all so nice and wonderful!!! Go and try it out for yourself. You will not regret it!!!! =)

Raymond is our family hairdresser..... that's 4 boys and me. We have been going to Nirvana for 18 months since moving to the US, and always had Raymond cut all our hair, and colour mine too. I love Aveda products, great blond colours. Our 3 boys (9,11 and 12yrs) always come out of Nirvana with great styles. A visit to Nirvana in Los Gatos is always enjoyed!

I have been to several salons over the past few years since I moved area and didn't find the right one until Nirvana. I enjoy the customer service and the products immensely. I have never had my hair cut short however, I feel that now is the time since the stylists are competent and provide good insight to what works with regards to face shape, texture and time specifications. I look forward to changing my look this weekend! I am nervous but know I am in good hands.

I have been going to Nirvana Aveda for years now, and I can't say enough great things about it. Everyone that works there is always warm, helpful and extremely nice. I've tried out a few salons in the bay area, and they were regrettable experiences. I was first drawn to aveda since I'm obsessed with green & natural products. Kayla has been doing my hair for the past 5 years, and she is awesome! She always does a great job with my hair and is extremely friendly and warm, she'll always go out of her way to give you the exact color and cut that you want. I'm so impressed with Kayla and Nirvana salon, that I've had several friends and family try them out, and they've all been very happy.

I have tried many salons, but I could never find anyone who knew how to color and style my frizzy/curly hair without damaging it until I discovered Terra Nieto at Nirvana. She is an expert at coloring and moisturizing my hair with oils, trimming/cutting my hair, enhancing the curls, and minimizing the frizz. She has given me so many helpful tips for handling my hair. She is amazing. I also love the aromatherapy scalp massage and the salon atmosphere. The Aveda products are gentle and don't contain the harsh chemicals and additives that are contained in the products that other salon's use. Aveda salons are socially and environmentally conscious which is a big plus.

Super Salon ! I've been a long time customer over seven years and look forward to each visit. The ambiance is great, customer service is first class and make everyone feel very comfortable.
The stylist are all talented and Laure is my favorite, she is warm friendly and a master stylist.

No need for me to look else where I've found Nirvana !

Pros: To many to list

Cons: None

.

I've been going to Nirvana for over 15 years. As soon as I enter, I immediately relax, with a warm welcome, soothing music, and the offer of a refreshment. Laure never disappoints with both color and cut, and I always go home feeling like a new person. The aromatherapy scalp massage during conditioning is definitely my fave!

Pros: Great energy, ambiance & service

Cons: parking can be tough, but that's downtown Los Gatos, not the salon

.

I definitely recommend this salon - awesome atmosphere, very friendly staff, and great services. The ability to book appointments online makes my life much easier! Worth the trip from Gilroy!

I Love this Salon! The entire staff is very helpful and friendly. The salon is small, but very classy and has a calming effect. I always feel very relaxed as soon as I walk in. My stylist is Janis, and she does such a great job with my color and cut. I am generally very picky about my color, and Janis is always willing to listen to what I want, and give me just that! The salon also offers a lot of Aveda merchandise, which I absolutely love. All of Aveda's products work well and smell great. I cannot wait to go back for my next appointment.
I would recommend this salon to anyone living in the San Jose area.

I have been going to Nirvana for over 9 years, and I have always walked away looking fabulous and renewed!
Thick curly hair is great except when you have to deal with it on a daily basis, but both Raymond and Tara are experts in this domain, and they are able to recommend great product combinations so that can maintain the style at home. The salon's atmosphere is ultra relaxing(must be the Aveda products which smell wonderful...even the coloring treatments), and everyone is really helpful. I love the way I look and feel after going there!!!

I've been going to Nirvana ever since I moved to the Bay Area, almost 2 years ago. It came highly recommended by a friend and has exceeded expectations! Christine is my stylist and always gives me an amazing cut. She is very friendly and full of positive energy and great hair style ideas. The aromatherapy scalp massage is so relaxing and my favorite part! From the moment you walk in the door, smell the salon's calming fragrance and are offered an herbal tea of your choice, you begin to feel pampered. It's easy to see why I so much look forward to my visits to Nirvana!

The service is consistently wonderful! Everyone there is so chill and friendly. I've lived all over the US and this is the best service for the best value around. They often offer coupons as well. It's in a great location! I often make a day trip out of it and get a tasty breakfast, yummy gelato across the street, or do some light shopping.

I am a busy mom of 2 and I really look forward to my day at Nirvana Salon. The staff always make me feel welcome and relaxed...from the special hot tea to the aromatherapy scalp massage. Raymond cuts and styles my hair and always does an expert job. I get many compliments on my trendy hairstyle and color, and I like that it is easy to take care of at home--just dry and go! The prices are competitive and the products are great. The philosophy of the company--earth friendly and eco-conscience--is also a plus.

A wonderful salon tucked into downtown Los Gatos with great ambiance. The staff is always super friendly (not snobby like some places) and they do a wonderful job. I have really curly hair and Raymond works his MAGIC on it and it always looks fantastic. The best part is I can manage to do it myself (never as wonderful as Raymond of course, but that is because I am terrible at styling hair!) They have really unique spa treatments and you always get a complimentary aroma therapy with your hair wash! Truly a unique Green Salon that you should try.

I have been going to Nirvana for at least three years. They have the best aromatherapy selection, and even offer online booking now which is so convenient. My stylist's name is Raymond and he is amazing! I have long, thick, and frizzy hair that can be so difficult to manage. He has it looking fabulous everytime I walk out of his styling chair. I would never think of letting anyone else touch my hair!

I get my hair done by Eileen - she is awesome - she will tell you HONESTLY if you don't need to do something such as a color quite yet just to save you some cash - she is really sweet and personable - as well as the rest of the staff as well - and does a great job - I got my hair colored about 2.5 months ago and it still looks great!

My hair stylist, Shawna, is an artist when it comes to cutting hair. I don't always have time to dry and style my hair, and I am not good about coming in as often as I should. Some how, my hair looks good for months after Shawna's cuts. She is also a master of making my face look good with the right shape cut to frame it. (I think I look younger when I leave the salon.) The cut is on the expensive side, but I am willing to pay a little more for a consistently good cut. The only room for improvement: Aveda products have a lot of perfumy scents. When you end up with more than one product in your hair, the smell can be overwhelming, especially if you go for a night of rigorous dancing right after having your hair done!

I've been searching for many years for a salon after my last hairstylist moved away. I read the reviews for Nirvana on Yelp and decided to try it out. I go to Christina and I love the color she came up with for my hair. I finally have the color I've been looking for. She asked lots of questions and gave her advice too and I loved what she did. I'm so happy to finally have a salon!"

You know you're in NIRVANA when you come here!
I live in Redwood City and make the trip to Nirvana because it's worth it! From the warm welcome, to the scalp massage to the artistry of Victoria...there's no other place I would rather go! I have been to hair salons before where I walk out and can't wait to go home and re-style my hair the way I want it. When I leave Nirvana, I can't wait to go out after to show off my cut and style!

Nirvana is always a great, relaxing, and friendly experience. The scalp massage is wonderful. The staff is wonderful and professional. I have been going there for several years now and it is always nice to see the staff over the years; younger staff works up the ranks. It is nice to have a place that keeps up to date on current styles as well as edgier ones.

Laure' is the only one who can consistently cut my hair in the style I like but can also quickly assess whether a requested style will work with your current lifestyle and make changes accordingly.

Booking can be difficult with some stylists but with the new online reservation system makes it easy.

Because i have wasted lot of money on Professional Salons, I havent been to any Professional Salons lately. Coz i know you wont get anything worth of the money you pay. So once i happen to see Nirvana's website online, and thought lets give it a try coz their prices are reasonable. I have got Botanical Strength Infusion treatment, and it is really amazing that it works so well. My hair started feeling so great, there is lot of change in texture. I can really feel the difference.
I am sure no one regrets once they visit Nirvana. Friends give it a try. Coz you are worth it..
