Ann Kelleher is a great stylist I went to her when she was formally at Bamboo and she just opened up her own salon called 19Blue Salon and Spa. It is one of the nicest salons I've been to in a long time! Everyone that works there is supper nice and really talented! Its a really fun place to get your hair done!
I have had a lot of bad luck with cuts even in this affluent town. I think I have finally found a winner. Delia gave me a great cut that coud be worn curly, straight with soft waves and could still be pulled back- everything I asked for! The cut is cute, sexy and sophistiated all in one. And all for a reasonable price ($40). I am so glad I found this place. . .thanks Delia!
There are hairstylists that have great ideas and can give you an amazing cut and color and then there are those that are really good at listening to you and giving you a style that works for you and FINALLY I've found the amazing Victoria who is a genius at both. She takes the time to look at your face shape and coloring and personal style and then not only gives you amazing hair, but gives you amazing hair that looks amazing on you! Plus she's a total doll and a pleasure to hang out with and gives the best shampoo/scalp massage imaginable. I have gotten more compliments on my hair than ever before, its just the color and cut that I've been wishing for but couldn't get anywhere else. The prices are reasonable and the salon is great, I'm so glad I found Victoria, she's the best.
I used to go to Beverly Hills for haircuts. I saw Cristophe, Umberto and Sunei of "Bruno & Sunei" fame. I always left unhappy. Little did I know that the best at cutting hair worked at Salon Bamboo. Brad instinctively knows and understands hair. I always leave happy, thanks to Brad. He is hip on styles, and knows exactly what to do. Then there's his bro, Nolan. He is an expert at cutting men's hair. My two teenage sons see Nolan. This is THE place to go for hair.
If you are looking for a great colorist, I have the perfect person for you. Her name is Ann Kelleher at Salon Bamboo. She totally hooked up my blonde highlights, which were ruined by someone else. She was so patient and kind and took her time fixing my "stripes". I also love the salon and everyone there was so nice and there was absolutely no attitude.
I remember when the building now occupied by this stylish salon was a church and the only reason to be in the area was the bar next door. When Gary opened Bamboo years ago, I always got a great cut and color. Now go to Brad for some funky style, he does my friends hair for years now and we always love it! Check out their new stylists and stay in the neighborhood for some dinner and live music next door at the Brewhouse after a day of beauty at Bamboo. You'll feel great outside with a cold one in hand and be glad you came.
I had a great experience at Salon Bamboo. I hadn't had my hair done in 8 years and Anne was great to work with. She was open to ideas and was quick to add her opinions as to what would look best and what to start out with based on personality and past experiences. It is a hip atmosphere and the stylists and receptionists are very friendly.
I have been looking for a good stylist in the area since I moved down from northern california, and I think I've finally met my match! Regina at Salon Bamboo is AWESOME! It is a great experience from start to finish. Personable, professional, stylish, and funny! I'm sold! The Salon was a bit hard to find... It's right in between the Brew House and the Neighborhood, across from the car wash. I go down, get my haircut, wash the car and grab a beer and a burger all in the same trip!
Pros: Great shampoo bowl head massage
Finding a salon to do an awesome job on highlights or even haircuts is not easy. I did some research on Citysearch and found this place, I was really impressed with my hair stylist and the quality of services. I think I have just found my favorite hair salon.
I have been looking for a stylist in SB for a while now, and then resorted to going back home because I was not having any luck. Then my friend told me about Regina at Salon Bamboo. She actually talked with me and really understood what I was looking for before she started my hair. The finished product was exactly what I wanted! She is always easy to talk to throughout the process as well. For anyone who has had bad luck finding a good stylist around town, you should definitely go see Regina!
Pros: Stylish salon with good ambiance.
i had such an AMAZING time at salon bamboo with Victoria, one of their hair stylists. I have never had a hair stylist be so attentive to my needs. she fit my personality to my hair and suggested incredible improvements. i LOVE the four-color highlight combo she gave me and i CANT WAIT to see her again! she's authentic, caring, and so fun to talk to. Victoria now has a customer for life, and i would refer anyone to her expert care!!
Pros: clean, professional, joyful, great haircuts
Victoria is the hairstylist of my dreams! I am so happy with how she cuts and styles my hair. I made the mistake of trusting someone in the past who cut off all my hair. I have been growing out my hair ever since. Victoria has walked me through all the stages of growing my hair out again... creating a new style at each stage of the process. She listens to what I want, and never cuts off too much. I will never stray away again and let anyone else cut my hair besides her. For those who have had a bad experience with hairstyles ... trust Victoria and you will love what she does with your hair. Besides... she is a sweetheart to talk to. You will love her! Darcee D.
I found Victoria by reading the different reviews by other client and had to make and appointment myself. I've been in Santa Barbara for about a year now and have been looking for a stylist who can cut and color. Honestly, I never believe I could find one person to do both. Until now.....Victoria did my blond highlights and cut my long curly hair to perfection. She's actually the first person to ever take the time to talk with me and listen to what I wanted, made suggestions and didn't cut off more than we agreed with. I love it and that's not normal for me to say. Usually I hate the color and I'm never happy with the way the stylist cut my hair but today when I left I was as happy as I've even been with my new hair. Besides all that, she's just a great person and really easy to talk with.
Pros: Listen to the client, beautiful color, great person
I've finally found a hair stylist that knows what will look the best on me! Other stylists in town just have their way with you, or do what you tell them to do without any ideas of their own. Victoria takes the time to see what color will make your skin look great and what hair cut will most flatter you face and suit your style. My friends and family tell me my hair looks the best its ever looked! And when my former hair stylist saw me (always a bit awkward when you've left a stylist you've been going to for awhile), she was so impressed that she asked for Victoria's name and number so that she can get her hair cut there too! The salon is a great place to be, relaxed and everyone is really friendly and the prices are really reasonable. A great find!
Pros: victoria can give both the best color and cut, plus an amazing scalp massage
It took 1 1/2 years of searching to find an excellent salon - Salon Bamboo. After moving to this area from LA, we visited four salons, all of which were bitter disappointments. One produced a $70 lopsided haircut; two gave us embarrassing "SuperCut" hairstyles; and one, after an hour delay, provided us with uncomplimentary highlights.
But that all changed with the discovery of Salon Bamboo. Victoria, a superb stylist, at Salon Bamboo, has repeatedly demonstrated expert flair for cutting-edge cuts that last for weeks, and striking highlights. She's also extremely personable and a great conversationalist, who'll make you feel at home at the Salon. The staff is courteous and kind. And parking near the Salon usually is easy, particularly if you schedule an early appointment.
By all means give the Salon a try. You'll be pleased.
Pros: Excellent cuts, great highlighting, friendly staff
