A couple weeks ago, I went to Urbaca for a haircut with Gretchen for the first time. I'm the kind of person that usually feels like haircuts are a slightly stressful errand, but getting a haircut from Gretchen felt like a luxurious treat

I bought a Sharing Spree for a cut and highlight with Laci that I used last week. I had a great experience! Laci was knowledgeable and friendly and my hair looked great when I walked out- with new bangs that I love! A complementary glass

I have had my hair cut and have been waxed by Sherri multiple times. I can't begin to say enough about how thoughtful, professional and fun Sheri is. Although I still get a little bashful exposing myself, Sheri is humorous and quick to distract me from the process.

I stopped getting my hair cut here because the price kept fluctuating. I never got an answer why sometimes I would pay $10 more for the same person.

I don't know what to do. I now have hideously short choppy hair and look HORRIBLE. I cry every time I look in the mirror. John, who is a nice enough guy, for some reason decided to just chop and chop and chop away at my hair, even though I

I suppose this place isn't so bad, but if you know what you want in a haircut, I really don't recommend it. I told the hairstylist exactly what I wanted, and she did nothing I asked her to do because she wanted to do what she was "into." I

I love this place because it looks like a high end salon, provides high end services, has high end employees, but isn't the slightest bit snobby and the prices are not what you'd think they would be. \r
I have received the greatest hair

Tonya at Urbaca is wonderful. I went to her after several bad color jobs and she fixed my color in one process. She also gave me the best cut I've ever had.

I don't even know where to begin. I'd been going to Tamara for nearly 3 years. Sadly, for my wedding day, she was unable to get me in at a reasonable time (8am for a 4pm event...), even 3 months in advance, so I was scheduled with someone

I have had numerous facials and waxes done, but none compare to those performed by Amber at Urbaca. For years I had them done at another spot in The Pearl - but nothing compares. Amber does a near-pain-free job on waxes not to mention
