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!
