A friend suggested Salon Kavi! Was not impressed. My color was flat. Cut was average and price was unreasonably expensive. I just moved to the area and I am crossing Salin Kavi off my list. Ridiculously priced with cold front desk Staff and nothing special.

Beware! Every time you go the price gets higher! Blowdrys are not included with color services. Handed off to shampoo person who suggests expensive products at the blow dry bar. Paying with credit card? The cheap Manager won't allow tips to be included using a credit card. If you don't have cash they will tell you to go to whole foods and get some. Greedy owner that sets a bad aexample for her stylists. I can't imagine why they would want to work for this salon

James is very passionate and considerate person. He takes care of us so well that we are very fortunate to have found him.

James did a great job--he took the pictures I brought in and adapted those styles for my hair type. I'm very happy with my cut and my hair hasn't looked this good in a long time! I've already recommended him to my friends and family!

Excellent as always...

She spent 20min trimming my hair, insisted on a blow dry and then charged me $80. Which would've been fine if she would've been more welcoming, understanding about my hair and did a better job. I dunno, disappointing experience altogether. Even the receptionist was rude. Won't be coming back to Salon Kavi.

Sabah is very talented. The salon Manager Karla is another story. I had sticker shock when I saw the price of my services. I explained to Karla the manager my situation. I have been a long time Client with salon Kavi.

Karla basically told me to take a hike. She shows little to no interest in retaining me as a Client. No empathy or concern whatsoever.

Be prepared to know exactly what each stylist fees are. Each Stylist is at various levels and the prices are all over the map.

Be prepared to know exactly what level your stylist is.

Blow drys are not included unless you get a haircut. Prepare to dry your own hair.

Often, you will be passed on to a different person for the shampoo after your color process. The shampoo Person will take you to a blow dry area with a couple of blow dryers to do it yourself.

Bring cash to tip the Stylist. Karla, the Manager doesn't allow the tip to be included if using a debit or credit card. They will suggest you go to whole foods and get cash back if you would like to tip your stylist.

Not always convenient if you are pressed for time. In good conscience after dealing with the salon Manager I would never suggest to a Friend to go to Salon Kavi. The various pricing tiers, different shampoo person, blow drying my own hair if not getting a haircut coupled with not allowing a tip other than cash does not make for a good personal experience. It's actually stressful. The Stylists are terrific. It's a shame the Manager Karla's lack of comcern for a long time Clients experience was handleled so poorly. I will never return or suggest Salon Kavi to anyone.

Clairmont Dental Clinic is very well run. It has been a pleasure to recommend it to several friends and coworkers during the past 17 years.

The entire process, from scheduling to the appointment day, was very seamless. We were scheduling my entire family at once and then had some changes. The office made it all easy. On the day of the appointment, the doctor managed to do my exam and my toddler's exam at the same time, making it efficient for me to get us in and out. The front office is also very cordial and a pleasure to work with.
