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!

Sheila was very welcoming and made me feel at home. Not only was it a great experience but I got a GREAT haircut. My hair has never had volume like it does now and I love it. The salon was very clean and many precautions were put in place to make sure both of us were safe. I look forward to coming back!

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 🤣🤣.

I've always tried to wear my my natural curls but could never make it work. I realized after going to Sheila that it's all about the cut! Sheila cuts my hair while wet into a shape that helps my curls fall seamlessly. I'm now a regular customer and enjoy the efficiency of her online scheduling system for booking appointments.

Shelia took such great care of me and my hair! I hadn't had a cut in over a year cause I was traumatized! But this woman knows her stuff!
