Indie Biz of the calls and more

Lets get to it.

Remedy Salon is located on 65 St in Emeryville.

Remedy is a cute salon located right around the corner for Blankspace. I have to admit I have known about this salon for a while now, I walk past it almost on a daily basis when walking my dogs. But for a long time I had a great hairstylist, so when she moved away...I was sad..and avoided going through the search of finding a new hairdresser for a long time (a process that is akin to finding a good mechanic or a new doctor).

Finally, I decided to try Remedy and since I had heard good things about Lona I made an appointment with her. I have to say I was nervous...well Lona was great! She was friendly, but not too talkative ( I like a friendly hairddresser, but I think there is a time for cutting and a time for talking)..she had the right amount of banter, enough to make me feel comfortable.

Cutting to the chase- Lona did a great haircut, the salon is small and comfortable, the other stylists all seemed nice and the prices are reasonable. I will be going back.
