I am more than satisfied with the hair cut from Gabby. She listened to what I wanted and voila my hair is actually doing what I wanted!! This is the first time in more than a year that has happened with a stylist in this area. The salon is clean and professional. BTW there is parking in the back that I didn't know until I got into the salon.

This was my first visit to Darin Jon, and I was very favorably impressed. Maria was my stylist, and I am definitely going back to her (have already scheduled my next appointment)

There's is virtually nothing to complain about. Cristina is awesome all the way around. The friendly front staff are pleasant. The atmosphere is nice. Offering tea or water is an inviting aspect to walk in to. My hair is difficult to cut because I have a lot of it, medium fine but it's all dead silky straight. I'm 57 years old and I have found only three people that could successfully cut my hair right. Cristina is one of those three and she is by far the best of the three. I love having someone that understands my hair, can be versatile and knows how to cut it. This is the first time in my life that I now schedule my haircuts every six weeks. This way my hair always looks its best. I'll have to say that Darin Jon seems to understand how to create a very inviting and professional hair salon.

This was my first time here and I made an appointment with Maria. She was so lovely, warm, and welcoming that I immediately felt at ease. We talked about what I want out of my haircut and decided on a flattering style together. After a relaxing shampoo she got to cutting my hair while describing what she was doing and why - super helpful for a newbie like me! She explained every product she used and the styling technique, which left me with a super cute haircut (one that I've been trying to achieve for years with no success!!!) and confidence that I could recreate it myself. Made my next appointment on the spot and am looking forward to coming back.

Gabby, again did a great job on my hair, went to a gathering last night, and so many ladies commented on my hair, Gabby, really is intentional about how she applies color and highlights, she explains how she wants to achieve the look you want, and layouts the destination of where her vision is to take your hair for the seasons , so you do not look streaked in the winter and dark in the summer. i love that Gabby is also seeing the condition of my hair and not FRYING the damaged thin hairs around my face, that is SO important, Gabby is a true professional, inside , thats who she is, she is determined to walk this passion through, and i totally support her, and am very very pleased with my hair. And, i really love and see how awesome ALL the other stylists are also, !!! sincerely, monica bootcheck

I have "problem hair" but Darin and the team carefully analyzed it and made amazing corrections. I was treated like a VIP- So glad to know there is a talented hairdresser who you can actually get an appointment with in Santa Barbara!

Kyleigh (sorry if i spelled your name wrong) was amazing. I called at like 9pm the night before and she had an opening the next day for my hair cut. She is the sweetest and made me feel so comfortable. Best of all, she fixed my previous hair cut that was horrendous. She has the best story, ask her how she became a hair stylist! Will certainly be a regular customer here on out :)
