I travel from Northern California to have my hair cut by Rachel; that is how good she is. She is wonderful!

Gene has been cutting my since I was in highschool, for over 25 years now. His skills are excellent and he is personable and caring. Whenever I get compliments on my hair, which is often, I always make sure to tell the person about Gene Martin Salon. Just make sure you book in advance, if you have particular days/times that you like to be seen.

For over twenty years a friendship and a relationship has been developed with Mark and Gene. During this thing we call "Life" cycles of the good, bad and the ugly have happened and have been shared,including those days of :I want it long, I want it short, it's time to cover up the "racing stripes". The leaders of the pack with the rest of their employees have always treated me like a very special person, as they do with all of their clients, devoting their time to helping me feel better and looking sociable acceptable once again, with a smile of my face for the whole world to see. The hair wash with massage hits the spot every time. This expense of "me taking care of myself time" has never been removed from my budget. I just make choices . This one I will never give up.

I started seeing Sharon at Gene Martin Salon since at least 2003. When I first moved to the Bay Area in 2004, I would schedule my visits back home to coincide with my hair appointments. Sharon is the B E S T! I first came to her when I had an awful a-line bob cut -- it looked like I had a butt for the back of my head! But Sharon saved the day!! She is friendly, professional, and very skilled. She mastered my THICK Asian hair -- this is a hard task since not all cuts suit with my hair. My only regret is that she books so far in advance (that's how good she is), so I'm unable to continue seeing her from Northern Ca.

Pros: Skillful stylists, Moderately Priced, Clean & Modern

Cons: Appointments book quickly!

The Gene Martin Salon on Villa at Altadena Drive is an easily accessible, medium-sized salon in a quiet neighborhood. It is well-lighted, and painted in tranquil sage tones with black accents which is just one feature that adds to the calm of the experience. They've recently rearranged products in the shop, moving the manicurist station which gives the front more breathing room. The beverage selection is now conveniently self-serve, also located in the front. The salon is well-staffed with efficient and friendly help, so it's always clean and there is rarely a wait. The tunes overhead are not obnoxious brain pounders. The stylists are really good with hair color and the younger helpers sport slightly freaky do's to demonstrate the place has a pulse. This is a soccer-mom salon, although the age of the clientele ranges from young teens through grannies. Lots of men are in for cuts, but I've never seen a guy there for coloring. Stylists will arrive at 6AM for busy clients.

PROS: 10 chairs make parking easy -- never congested.
CONS: Skin care is available but I've never been tempted to try.

I love going to Mark. He has a great sense of what will look good with your facial structure, you skin tone and your lifestyle. I can usually describe something I want - or maybe just what I don't want and come out with exactly what I wanted. He books up fast - sometimes I have to book 5 or 6 weeks in advance, usually when I am leaving one appointment, I make my next one right there. He has some really early appointments - even on Saturdays - so I can get it out of the way.

PROS: Fabulous staff and always great results
CONS: So hard to get appointments - reschedule or late
