I've been going to Sarah at Therapy Salon for over six years now, and I cannot say enough about this gem of a salon in the Los Altos community. Not only have I never been happier with my hair, but over the years I've gotten to know Sarah on a personal level and am honored to call this deeply compassionate, kind-hearted woman a dear friend. When I first came to Sarah, my hair was in need of some TLC from years of highlights and harsh products. Thanks to Sarah and fabulous Aveda products, my hair is so healthy now that I can go 6+ months between trims. My highlights are multifaceted, natural-looking, and exactly what I ask for each appointment. Sarah is a true genius when it comes to all hair types, colors and needs, and she really listens to exactly what each customer wants. But there's even more...Beyond her remarkable talent with hair, Sarah has put her heart and soul into Therapy Salon--a forward-thinking, environmentally-conscious small business. Therapy Salon is a zero waste salon! Sarah goes to great lengths (and often greater expense) to have everything recycled in the salon, from cut hair on the floor to aluminum foil.Sarah's overall mission behind Therapy Salon is a positive, healthy, feel-good environment that integrates beauty and wellness from the inside out for her clients. Although Sarah is an incredibly busy stylist, business owner, wife, and mother of three daughters, much of her time, energy and resources go toward supporting children and adults in the community who are undergoing cancer treatment (this includes my own mother who underwent chemo a few years back--and it was Sarah who shaved her head, fit her for a wig, provided special gentle oils for her scalp throughout months of treatment, and has been one of my mom's closest friends and supporters ever since.) In fact, Sarah opened Therapy Salon in 2014 in memory of a dear friend she lost to cancer years ago.Sarah is a magician with her hands, but she works from the heart. She truly knows hair AND people. Therapy Salon is an absolute gem in the community, and I'm honored to share my experience.
Even though I didn't provide much direction, Liz did a great job with my hair. While haircuts usually look great when you walk out of the salon, I still love the cut even after just washing it and letting it air dry. I'll be back!
I wanted to donate my hair and get a new style and found online that Therapy partners with Wigs for Kids on hair donations. I had a wonderful experience with Sarah - she gave me a GREAT cut, explained the process of hair donation, and was really nice and fun to talk with. Excellent experience here - I will definitely being going back.
