Cindy Wilson is like a "hair yenta!" I've been going to her for about 5 years and I've never been disappointed. She's the kind of hair artist who would laugh if you called her a "hair artist" but more than once, she's brought my inner "hair diva" out. She is easy to talk to, will listen to what you are looking for and will absolutely tell you if "looking like Cher" is a realistic outcome or just a pipe dream (pipe nightmare?). She does the "big hair for a party" thing but her specialty is great looking hair, that you can actually repeat by yourself. She recently relocated to a new salon but she's the same great Cindy. Her new address is conveniently located on Solano Avenue, about three stores up from San Pablo Ave and has easy access to the buses, freeway and other fossil fuel propelled devices (tho' street parking is a challenge sometimes).
PROS: She listens, she asks questions, she suggests alternatives
CONS: She works mostly Wednesday all day, Thur & Fri afternoons, all day Sat.
