Both my husband and I go to Aaron Neff at Urban Groove and love the cuts we get. Aaron recently did my color, and did a great job with that, too. We both find him personable and enjoy chatting with him while he works. Love this place.

Aaron Neff is a rude stylist and I would not go to him if I were you.

Aaron fixed my nasty roots..and I came in as a drop-in! I got a great haircut from him a week later (and received tons of compliments.) Have gone back. Relaxing airy salon, located right next to the Harbor Cafe, and has art exhibits on the wall. Worth the price - for me, the highlights, cut, styling, blowdry, etc cost $140. Worth it!

Pros: Professional, casual

Cons: it's booked up ahead with so many satisfied clients

Go see Shiloh at Urban Groove. Very talented, no B.S. and very professional. Has fixed numerous home hair color experiments I've done to myself and simply does great hair. Urban Groove is the ONE salon I've settled on after numerous forays into other "fabulous" salons around Santa Cruz.( I've had enough prima donna attitude to last me a long time, thank you very much.) Everyone at Urban Groove has always been super nice to me and very courteous. I also enjoy the fact that I'm not pressured into buying product every time I'm there. How refreshing! If you want product, great, if not, have a wonderful day and I'll see you next time. No matter where you go, take a picture (or pictures) with you. Trying to describe with words what you want visually will rarely give you the results you want.... a picture IS worth a thousand words.

I moved from LA to Santa Cruz and needed a new stylist. I saw a girl down town with a really cute haircut and she told me Lori Ann at Urban Groove Salon did her hair. I went to Lori Ann and I have to say that my hair looks better than it ever has. I've been to the best salons in Beverly Hills and was never as happy as I am with my hair now. The people were friendly in the salon and it was easy to make an apt. She charged me $150.00 for a highlight, cut, and style/dry. It was worth every penny!! I've gone back to her 3 other times, and every time she makes me look like a movie star!!!! I highly recommend Urban Groove salon.

Urban Groove had the best price estimate for my head full or highlights, but the result was a little less than expected.
I brought Jenny a picture of almost exactly what I wanted. She spent 1 and a half to 2 hours on my hair and I walked out with what looked like 1/18th of what I had wanted.
The highlights were the size of a toothpick when I had asked for CHUNKY.
I paid $95 dollars for something I did better myself when I got home with a self-bleaching kit.

I moved from LA and it was so hard to find a good salon in Santa Cruz area.
I finally found Urban Groove and I am very satisfied.
FYI, I had an haircut with VIda.

I am not experienced when it comes to going to salons for haircuts... when I decided to start at 26 years old (instead of begging family members for a trim) I asked EVERYBODY where to go. I decided on Urban Groove because my friend Amanda's hair looked spectacular after an appointment with Andi...really just stunning; perfect cut for her face - she was glowing. (and she's not the type to be high maintenance -same as me).
I made an appointment back in January - was able to get in the same week!, loved the cut, was surprisingly comfortable with the salon atmosphere and have been promising myself another cut. Just read the other reviews and figured that if I am confident go back this Friday - I should say so. Go to Andi - she is really great.
(and if it's bad this time I'll re-post )

These stylist are very talented!!! Deffinetly go in and check it out for yourself. I was referred to a couple different stylists by friends, and they just happen to work at Urban Groove. I know some of the stylists have been doing hair for at least 15 years +, and are very good from what I saw. Experienced and professional all under one roof! As for gossiping, I didn't hear any, I found everyone very friendly and I am a quiet person, I felt very welcome. I was also greeted with a smile, I've walked in to many salons in this area that look you up and down and act as if your bothering them when you arrive, not Urban Groove your welcome from the moment you walk in!!

Average haircut but mean staff. Actually one of the hairstylists I tried was really moody.
Well, I don't know...
I've only been there twice, tried two hairstylists, decided not to go back again.
So many nice hair salons out there why go back to a mediocre quality salon?

I've had very pleasant experiences and cuts here. The stylists did not talk about other customers once they left or treat anyone disrespectfully the times I've been there. I love that I can drink a beer or glass of wine, while getting my hair done, and I find coming here very relaxing. I've loved my hair cuts everytime. Andi and Raul are both great. So go there yourself and make up your mind after the experience.

...in gossiping. When it comes down to "skills", they suck big time. I wish I could show you what they'e done to my hair. OMaGod. These Santa Cruz hippies are awful!
Just go there once to check out b/f you spend your $$$. Bonus comment: as soon as customers leave, they all make fun of customers in front of other customers; no wonder all these custmers were so quiet. The receptionist asked one lady if she wanted anything to drink. When the lady said she wanted water, the receptionist made this face to one of the hairstylists as she was getting water...
