    7/27/2015 Updated review: I have reviewed Chris before, and now needed her services because my hair started thinning dramatically with menopause…as usual she did not let me down. She is now located closer to Modesto than Livermore, but getting the help I needed was worth the drive! Besides, it is a beautiful and PRIVATE location. I love the addition she provided for my hair, and am still so happy I knew of her.

    I feel like I finally found a stylist that can make my hair look like I ask, rather than what he/she… Read more

    Having hair loss is devastating and their are so many business that are so money hungry. I bought a 6,000 dollar wig from a company in LA. That company and many other places were charging me over 200 dollars to dye it a few shades darker. I’m so grateful for meting Chris! She charges me third of that and does quality work! I also appreciate that she truly cares about me and how I am doing. She goes above and beyond. A plus is she has her own salon in her house which keeps everything private. I’m grateful their is someone who is skilled and compassionate serving the Merced and Modesto area.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE CHRIS!!! I have been going to Chris for almost 10 years. She is amazing at hair color and extensions. The place I had been going to prior had left me with broken hair and bald spots. Chris not only brought my hair back to healthy but it’s gorgeous. The colors blend perfectly and you can’t even tell I wear extensions. I don’t trust anyone else doing my hair. Her prices are amazing. Way below what I used to pay. It is so great to go to someone that knows about coloring and cutting hair. Not like a lot of places that are opening up everywhere these days. Go see Chris you will not regret it.

     When I started losing my hair Chris really helped me gain my self confidence again. When she opened the Modesto area salon, I thought I’d never go that far, BUT I tried to find someone else only to find there is no one in the area with the skills, empathy, and connections to the replacement industry that Chris has, so along with many others I am making the drive and see her in the country. (it is a beautiful drive anyway)

     So, at 42 I find that I am losing my hair due to a condition called Alopecia. I may go completely bald so I must be prepared to find some “alternative” hair. I called all the listed salons, and even went to a consultation, but was not satisfied until I met with Chris.

    I was astounded to feel that this person actually listened to my concerns, did not try to sell me anything, but showed me some possible options, then actually lent me a wig to wear for a week to see if I could handle it. Once we determined that a realistic human hair wig was best for my situation, Chris walked me gently through the process, asking questions to be certain we would order something that would work for me.
    When the new hair arrived, she told me to be aware that it would look horrible until it was cut for my face, which it did. But when Chris was done, she had recreated exactly the hair I had before it started to fall out. I loved it and finally felt like my old self.
    Chris asked me to make a follow up appointment to check out how it was going, and I did. Some minor alterations were needed, but on the whole, Chris nailed it for me. Her pricing was much below what others had quoted, and I feel this hair was worth every penny paid.
    I feel so fortunate that after feeling I would have to go bald, I found Chris. Her dedication is second to none and she is 100% honest with people.
    Losing one’s hair is a terrible experience, especially when you are female. Chris understands that and one can trust what she says. She is very talented, experienced and honest. I plan to stay.… posted on CitySearch

      “I found Chris 3 years ago. My hair had been gradually falling out over a period of time to the point where I needed to do something. I started searching on line for ideas and was very impressed with Chris’s website. Since she herself ‘suffered’ from hair loss I felt that she would have some insight as to dealing with my own problem. I met with her in a private setting, which was important to me. Right from the start she made me feel comfortable and was so easy to talk to. We decided that wigs were the best option for me. She walked me through the process, spending considerable time guiding me with her knowledge and expertise to get me feeling good about myself again. She cut and styled my first wig and has been doing so ever since. I have bought more wigs since then and always value her opinion and input. I recommend Chris for anyone suffering from hair loss. She can explain the different options available and help you find the best option for you.

      “Chris is a great ‘barber.’ Yes, that’s exactly what I was looking for and found with Chris. She knows how to cut hair not just style it. My hair needs a great cut. And Christ does it. Sorry I’ve moved to Arizona and go no longer use her great talent.”

      “Chris cut and styled my hair for several years. I was so sad when she moved away. She always made my hair look fantastic and made it easy for me to style. She is one of the best hairdressers I have ever had. Her prices are very reasonable too.”
