Hair International

★★★★☆

The most important job of our  salon coordinators besides running the front desk, is to find the best stylist to suit your needs. It means they must ask questions, show pictures occasionally and know the work of each stylist completely.

Therefore, our salon slogan and MANTRA is 

"Let us match you...to the perfect stylist!"

We love doing it, it's lot's of fun, and when stylist and client connect really well, we feel like we're making a difference in this world!

I have been going to Hair International for several years now mostly because they know how to cut and color my hair. It was very difficult before I found them as I have a tough head to cut (hair flipping around my ears etc.) Best of the Best.

I had to get my hair colored in a hurry yesterday so I walked in and got Keana. She did an absolutely terrible job on my hair. Not only the color is very uneven and awful, my scalp also is irritated because of how she did it.\n\nOther stylists at this place had done a fine job with my hair and with the same color that I have been using.\n\nWhen I called they told me that this was a less expensive stylist and so I shouldn't be too upset. I wished they had warned me in advance that I was taking chances by agreeing to let her color my hair.\n\nI am so sorry and upset. I wished I had never walked in there.

After being a loyal customer at Hair International for 3 years, I will never return to this place after the personal insultment I received yesterday.\n\nCan you imagine that a hair stylist would say to a customer: ""you want to trick me?"", he would throw his tools to the working station and even yell in public ""enjoy your FREE haircut!""? Unfortunately that happened to me.\n\nMy hair stylist was George. My only request was to have my hair bangs a little tilted. He promised he would do that but failed. When I tried to explain him what I wanted, he constantly interrupted me and didn't let me finish. The hair bang turned out to be very irregular and I asked him to fix it. He refused and threatened me ""I would not do it. If you insist, I will let somebody hear it. Then if something is wrong, I have no responsibility!"" He repeated this 3-4 times and even said ""if you want your hair bang like that, you cut it yourself at home!"" ...then, you know the rest (refer to the above paragraph).\n\nWhen I called the manager today on the phone, she attributed this bad service to ""misunderstanding"" and kept apologizing. I didn't expect anything more but I don't think that a personal insult can be considered ""misunderstanding"".\n\nAnyways, I am totally disappointed. Hair International is a very nice place but hair stylists like George should not work there. I will not return to this place.

I was a walk-in, needing a trim. I got Becky, and I am so pleased with her service. She is very nice and careful about details. I am from out of town, but I would definitely have kept her as my regular stylist.Needless to say, my hair looked and felt amazing after my appointment. So super happy with my visit!

Amy rocks! I had previously gotten a poor color job and went to Amy to get it corrected. I was quite nervous at first, but Amy walked me thru what needed to be done and I was pleasantly satisfied with the outcome. Thanks Amy for fixing me up! I've finally found someone who knows how to cut and color my hair the way that I want.

I have been coming here for years and haven't been for a few months. My regular stylist I normally go to doesn't work at this salon anymore. I was scared to try someone new. I mean a bang trim anyone can do, but a hair cut is another thing. I referred to Renee, i told her my concerns about my hair getting cut too short, and i wanted to keep the bangs long. Renee did an AMAZING job!! She listened to all my concerns and the cut came out beautiful! I received so many compliments on my cut, I told them they need to go to Renee!

Go to Star! (Her name is very fitting.) Not only did she do a fabulous job on my hair (and I'm very picky) but she's lovely to talk to. Even though the salon was busy, Star took such good care of me that I felt calm and relaxed. She's wonderful!

I am a client of Marie T.'s and have been going to her for several years now on a monthly basis. She is wonderful, professional, and excellent at what she does. In general, the staff and atmosphere are warm, courteous, and professional. I also really like seeing the diversity of both clientele and professionals who work at HI. I think this is one of its best assets.

Great Service. I've gone elsewhere for reasons of being closer to where I live. At the time, I could not get my eyebrows done at the same time since the nights I came in no one was available. Keep up the good work.

I have had Sandy as a hairdresser for several years. She is always pleasant and does a good job. Tiffany has filled in for her when she has been out of the salon and she also is a very pleasant person. I drive from nearly Morgan Hill to see these two ladies and I find that ---they are worth it !!

It's always great to get my hair cut and highlighted by Alma.\nI'm allergic to the dye and she knows exactly what to do to avoid any reaction. Alma is the only colorist that I have been to (and I have tried many) who can pull it off and it always looks great! Alma is the best!

I have been using Hair International for approximately 2 years and will continue to go there. The walk-in service really works every time if you do not have an appointment. The level of hair care is excellent and and the rates are 'real'. I use this salon for hair treatments, cutting and color and I do recommend it to friends.

We are involved in an at-risk teen program "Spark", wherein we provide a mentorship spot for 2 students every semester.
