I read these reviews and went to Salon 121 and asked for Kenya. She spent a lot of time on my cut and weave and did an excellent job! -- that time. I have been back several times since then and with each visit she spends less time, colors less hair, and charges me the same as or more that the time before. What worries me about a place like this is that none of the stylists post their prices. Each time Kenya was finished with my hair, I had no idea what her price of the day would be. She always whispered the price to me almost as if no one else was supposed to hear. I think she has a different pricing schedule for each customer. The last visit, she didn't have enough time to do full highlights, a cut, or a shampoo (!). When she whispered her price, I nearly fainted. I'm always leery of reading reviews in these types of venues -- the merchant's relatives and friends could be giving them good ratings. When I find a great service provider, I give them sizeable tips and refer my friends to them. In this case, no referral.

I have been going to Salon 121 for as long as Kenya Kim has been working there. Salon 121 is a clean and good looking salon, but Kenya is why I am there. She has the skill and talent to cut, style, perm and color any type of hair. She will help you select hair products to make or keep your hair healthy. She uses only the best products on your hair. I perm and color my hair and it is amazing how healthy and shinny it is. Kenya is the only person I would let touch my hair. I have followed her around Los Altos for more than 10 years.
You must call ahead for an appointment as she is very busy.

Kristy is my personal favorite stylist.
My first visit was 5 years ago; I walked in with just an idea Kristy created a wonderful cut added a touch of color that accents my facial tones and the cut. She showed my how to style it at home and I was able to do so. Since then she has always given a great cut and color combo. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and worth the drive. She also designed my daughter a haste free cut that she loves. The salon has a wonderful location (downtown Los Alto) upscale (yet not to stuffy or pushy), clean, great products (that smell good too) and the lady at the front desk is always smiling and helpful with directions. Plan ahead sometimes you have to search for a parking spot, but you can shop along the way back to your car, shops, ATM, Starbucks and a little bakery all nearby. ~ Overall wonderful ~ Thanks Kristy ! I love you and you know I?ll be back.

My first time visit to Salon 121 was a success. I was looking for a stylist who could give me a Vidal Sassoon "Bob" haircut at a moderate price. I found the salon by scanning local reviews and by calling Salon 121. They recommended Kenya and I was very pleased by the following.
1. It was easy to get an appointment.
2. Kenya trained at Vidal Sassoon, has been cutting hair for 15 years, and has worked at Salon 121 for 7 years.
3. She has a relaxed and kind manner when she works on your hair which made me very comfortable as a first time client.
4. She takes care in her work and the outcome was a quality precision cut.
5. The price was within my budget, but check with the receptionist before booking to see if it's right for you.

I drive from Sonoma County to get my hair cut from the best lady there---- SHANELLE FIORETTI! She is amazing. I went there with a picture of Mandy Moore from Elle magazine. She cut my hair to an exact T. I went to a really expensive salon in Sonoma with the same picture and walked out broke and unhappy. I went to Shanelle within days and she made it work. She has a great sense of style that she imparts with each haircut. She makes you look great and stays within your comfort zone. Trust me when I tell you that she is really good. If you crave beautiful long layers, she is the person. If you crave beautiful hair, go here and ask for Shanelle.

If you need a quality haircut on short notice this is your place. The stylists are great and the prices are lower than many other salons in Los Altos or Palo Alto. The salon is friendly and not pretentious. The location is great since you can get a bite to eat or find an ATM nearby. My favorite stylist is Kenya.

PROS: Friendly and easy to get an appointment
CONS:
