Josie has been cutting and highlighting my hair for nearly two years. When I first met with her, we spent some time talking about what I like, how much time I want to spend on my hair (little!), and looking through examples. The result was that I left with a haircut and highlights that matched what I envisioned and works with my lifestyle. Although I am not someone who likes to spend a lot of time in a salon, I really enjoy my appointments with Josie and especially how my hair looks when we are done.
Josie is very thorough and meticulous. I first tried her service after I read a review that said "Josie does what you ask for". It's true! She is very good at listening and receiving feedback. She understands that YOU have to wear the haircut every day. Also, my cuts always grow out well and I get so many compliments on them. Thanks Josie!

I was so happy after my hair cut. This year I have been bouncing around trying several hair salons and I always left either sad or angry. I was not sure if I was not telling them clearly what I want. But with Josie, she got it. I told her what I want and if it is possible and there you go, I finally got what I want. Her price is very reasonable. I will definitely go back and hopefully can keep her for life. In fact I will see her in 4 weeks. You cannot go wrong with her. She will make you feel beautiful, if not really beautiful!
Josie makes you feel welcome from the moment you call. She is a very happy person, you can tell she love's doing what she does. I got my hair highlighted and trimmed and I love it. This was my first time but I will definitely be going back! Thank you the great experience Josie.
Josie listens to you

Josie listens to you and gives you the hair cut you want. I haven't found any other stylist I like in the area over 9 months of living here, but I am going back to Josie. She's a bit expensive comparedto the places this young male is used to, so I give four stars instead of five. The haircut itself was very good though. 
Josie is the Best!

 If you want a great hair cut and/or color, and someone that truly knows what she 
is doing, come see Josie. I've been coming to her for over 10 years, and I always leave looking great. I don'tknow what I would do without her. 
Simply Amazing!
 By Anne - Apr 10, 2010
 My mom has massive, curly hair and my dad (when he did have hair) had thin, 
straight hair. So I have that lovely combination of wavy, frizzy, crazy-lady hair. Appropriately, I don't let just anyone touch my hair. Most people wouldn't know what to do with it. Josie does. For years and years and years, she has made my hair look so lovely. I'm amazed by her skill. I can point to a picture in a magazine and she'llreplicate that hairstyle with such ease and perfection. A+ 
The best hairstylist/colorist in town!
By AnneOct 21, 2008
Josie has been doing my hair for years! I have tried a few times to go to someone else closer to my home, and each time, I have gone back to Josie to fix the mess that someone else has made. I've stopped trying since then. She's a wonderful colorist and uses only the best products in the market. Typically when you leave the salon, you can never expect to be able to maintain the look but Josie cuts my hair in a way that is easy to manage so you can always look like you just stepped out the salon! She's wonderful -- highly recommended!!!!
Extremely Pleased
By TeriAug 4, 2008
I was visiting from out of town and needed a haircut and decided to try Josie based on the good reviews. I was not disappointed. I have never gotten more compliments on a haircut before. Plus, as my hair grows out, the cut still looks good. Josie also showed me an easy and effective way to blow dry and style my hair as I am a little uncoordinated. I am very grateful. The only problem is that I don't live there and I'll never find someone I like as much where I live! I'll go back next time I'm in town, that's for sure.

Great hair cut. Amazing technique! Really good at layering, thinning, and styling wavy or curly hair.
Great Find!
By TomasNov 29, 2007
Josie is awesome. She was extremely attentive and cut my hair exactly the way I wanted, asking for feedback throughout. She takes pride in her work and pays attention to every little detail, including such things as your head shape and the various asymetries that almost everyone has. How wonderful to find someone who really knows what she's doing!
Fabulous Cut for 15 Years!
  By EmNov 23, 2007
Josie has cut and styled my hair for 15 years now. From styling for 2 years of high school homecoming and prom to coloring in college and now cutting-edge styles in the corporate world. I'd recommend visiting Josie for 200% satisfaction and beautiful hair every time!
Best Little Haircutter in California
 By Patty - Sep 27, 2007
Josie has been cutting my hair for more than a decade. And in fact she cuts my husband's and son's hair as well. Her knowledge of style and coloring techniques is unsurpassed and I have never received even a mediocre haircut from her. I leave the salon feeling terrific because I know I look my best. It's a testimony to her skills that I drive more than 20 miles to be with her and her scissors!

Never-ending compliments....
 By Vicki - Sep 7, 2007
I have been going to Josie's for years and have always felt satisfied and happy with my hair cut and highlights. I have received (and still do) numerous compliments for my hair from friends and even from strangers who would stop me and compliment my hair. Thanks, Josie for all these years that you've given me the perfect haircut that could make people stop for a second look.‎

Josie is the best!

I have been having Josie style my hair for several years, and she is fantastic! I am always pleased every time she cuts or styles my hair. I recommend her highly!
