Sheila is amazing. I have curly/wavy hair, and when it grows out, the weight of it straightens my hair somewhat. But i love my curls! I have trusted her to cut my hair ever since I moved to the Bay Area. I know that when I leave her studio, my hair will look fabulous and I will feel great!

Sheila does excellent work. Her knowledge of natural hair is superb! My natural hair has really thrived with her care. She uses the best products for your own texture of hair. I love how my hair thrives so I have booked with Sheila for the whole year! I want to make sure I can always get a appointment!

I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Sheila at Head Designs! Not only was she extremely careful about safety, she also gave me the best haircut ever! My curls felt celebrated in her care, and her energy is awesome to be around. As a new Oakland resident, I am so happy to have found her. 1000x more stars for this exceptional woman!

I have been a client for years and one thing is for sure is Shelia is not only a talented hairdresser but is facetious about cleanliness. This is especially important in a post Covid-19 world that you can trust her to follow all the guidelines. Plus only one person in the salon at a time. so social distance is possibleShe is known for being a curly hair specialist but I have come to her in all my hair stages - relaxed , dreaded, textured, natural etc

Sheila is my new hair stylist, and the best ever!! She not only knew exactly how to cut my long, tied back hair into the medium hair style l wanted but washed and showed me how to style it too. She described how my new hairstyle brings out my facial features and was excited to style my hair in future. I got sooo many compliments from everyone at work on the "very cute, l really love your hair, makes you look younger, brings out your face" hair cut...thank you, thank you, thank you Sheila for my new hair style. I posted a Before (in pink tshirt) and After (in orange shirt) picture of me...thank you also for the swimming, breathing technic class you gave me ;)...l tried it at the pool but really need more practice 🤣🤣.
