I came into UC Hair Salon and I was very satisfied with service that I chose. They are friendly and she was able to help me find a hair style and a new color that fit me. I am so excited with this new hairstyle that I plan on returning.

So, this was my first time getting anything waxed. I was very nervous, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I had a lunch break, and I had taken about 30 minutes to eat, and so with 30 minutes before having to go back to lab, I went over to get waxed. I walked in and told her that it was my first time, and she was great about it. She led me into the back, which when I first saw it, I thought "sketch..." It's a dentist-type chair with a plastic covering, and they put a fresh piece of paper on the chair when you come in. And there's just a curtain separating you from people getting their hair done, so that was a little awkward (for me at least, because this was all new to me). Also, there are things like the wax is just sitting out with no lid or anything, or she uses the same wax strip for the whole job, or she doesn't use gloves when waxing. But, overall, she was very friendly, she did a FANTASTIC job!! And she kept talking to me the whole time to keep my mind off the actual waxing being done, which I really appreciated. I'm not a frills-type person, and I was just looking for an in-and-out wax job (no pun intended), and so as long as you don't mind not being pampered, this is the place to go! AND it was only $40 for a brazilian!!

I definitely recommend this place if you want a fast, thorough job. Its true that you're not paying for the ambiance or customer service, but I got my legs and extended bikini done and I have never had a faster (and therefore less painful) wax. And she didn't go back over with tweezers because she didn't have to; she got everything the first time. Very impressed!

I went in for a fast chest and back wax. That's what I got. The woman waxing me was fast courteous and efficient at her job. No frills but no Jibe either. She even offered me a Brazilian but I said "Not today sister." I just might go back in a little while and try it.

Everything is so clean here, which of course is how it should be for my waxing procedure. I will never go anywhere else.

Shadia is absolutely amazing! Brazilians are painful, no doubt, but Shadia does them in record time and can carry on a conversation no problem at the same time! The staff is amazing and I always come here for my waxing needs

I had some time to kill before a doctor's appointment at the Tang Center, so I thought I'd stop by for a hair cut, since I was planning on doing that sometime, anyway. I just walked in, and Crystal was waxing someone, so I had to wait ten minutes or so before she got to me. I wasn't in a hurry, so I didn't mind the wait. When it was my turn, I explained what I wanted, and she went to work. She was very quick, but thorough, and when I looked in the mirror, I was very pleased. She did EXACTLY as I asked (I wanted more layers, but to keep the length -- I wanted the look of a messy bob, a la Katie Holmes, without taking too much off), which, I confess, is a rarity with me. Hair stylists ALWAYS want to chop more off than I ask. They get a little too happy with those scissors, if you know what I mean. But Crystal was extremely nice, but quiet (which I like -- I'm not much of a talker), and I'll be more than happy to go again! A great, inexpensive ($15, in my case), quick cut! I recommend the place, particularly if you're a college student on a budget!

"So I was in dire need of a good brazilian, being a first timer and broke, I yelped my little butt and came across UC salon. Noticing a good reasonable price and also the good reviews, I made an appointment for me and my best friend with shadia this morning. We were both scared out of our minds but the nervousness eased after hearing shes been handling the downstairs business for 20 years now.
Boy was it painful- but it was so fast i couldnt believe it was over when she was done. the after cream she applied really really helped, there was absolutely no itching or discomfort."

This was my third time getting my haircut here and my first time getting a back wax here. I had also brought my friend who was in need of a fade, here for the first time. The service was great everyone was extremely nice. The haircuts were both great and perfect, not a hair out of place. The wax was great, the lady is extremely nice and makes you feel very comfortable. The wax took no more than 10 minutes and all of the hair was gone (just as I wanted). Best place in Berkeley, definitely going back

"I got my first brazilian wax here!
It wasn't too expensive because i got a coupon here for 50% off koofers.livingsocial.com
It was quick and almost painless. And since its so close to campus I definitely recommend UC Hair Salon!"

Really appreciate the perm last weekend I was in dire need of one. Your staff was extremely friendly and very pleasant to deal with. I left a large tip with the stylist because she did such a fantastic job. I can't wait to get my hair done here again.

The stylists are so nice and know the latest styles. I change my hair all the time from color to cutting and adding extensions. My stylist takes really good care of my hair so that no matter what I do it stays healthy.

I was referred here by a friend because I wanted to dye my hair and I was too scared to do it myself. I am so glad I went. The color came out great. I love it. The pricing was pretty decent also.

A girl friend told me this place specializes in Brazilian bikini waxing, since I had never had one I thought I would come here to try. It was indeed pretty painful, but the result was so worth it. The aesthetician was really friendly and did a great job making me feel comfortable as well as removing all that unwanted hair.

I went into UCSalon a few weeks ago to get my chest waxed. It was fast, and less painful then it usually is. The girl that did it was real nice and cute too. Seemed clean and the staff was real friendly.

When in Berkeley and in need of a haircut, I come here. I always ask for one particular stylist who knows how to layer my hair really well. She seems to have a lot of experience with layering hair since she says girls come in everyday asking for a particular layer-cut (not all layers are the same). I don't have to explain anything to her - she knows what I want and how I want it, and even the first time I came in there. The cut was about $16 (less if you find a coupon). I always come here for my haircuts...they also do waxing but I haven't tried that service yet..
