“I have had the good fortune of never having to worry about where to look for my hair styling needs as i have been a client of Strands for Hair since opening day, 25 years ago. The owner Lisa has worked hard to develop and maintain an environment that caters to a variety of salon services. Lisa and her professional staff stay current on all of the latest trends and techniques and consistently provide these services in a most consultative fashion. The team at Strands for Hair goes over and above to ensure complete customer satisfaction, as well as creating the genuine desire to return for my next salon service. I continue to refer all my friends and family to Strands For Hair!”

“I was introduced to Strands and Lisa nearly 20 years ago. Lisa and staff had volunteered their services for a fashion show to benefit the American Diabetes Society. I was a participant and it was a wonderful experience. My hairdresser had left the area, and, Lisa and staff did my hair and makeup perfectly for the fashion show. And, she has been doing it perfectly ever since. Now, due to surgeries, I have needed someone to do my nails. Jane was suggested to me. No matter how difficult my nails are, Jane knows exactly what is needed. Jane does my nails better than I ever did them. Quality, flexible scheduling, long time customers and staff, and fair pricing make Strands a great salon. Thanks for years of great service.”

“Strands hair salon has the just right environment a woman wants when selecting a place to get her hair or nails done. Very friendly staff who ensure you are happy and well taken Care of to suit your needs. Also very willing to help you select the right, color and style to suit your professional and casual needs along with the shape of your face. Jennifer is my stylist and I love her down to earth attitude and the way she styles my hair with just a little different flair every time. Strands is very relaxing, cozy salon in a great location across from Mollie Stone’s, and the price is right, too.”

“Strands is Wonderful! I’ve been a client for several years and have recommended the salon to family and friends. My daughter had her first salon cut at Strands and loved it (when she was 11). The personnel is talented, professional, courteous and friendly, and the salon’s ambiance is amiable and relaxing. My favorite stylists are Jeanie and Silvia, but I’ve heard that the other stylists are wonderful as well.”
Patricia

“I have been a customer of Strands for many, many, years. I have found all their services to be consistently outstanding, extremely customer orientated, and far and above any other salon in quality results.

“I recently moved approximately 1 and 1/2 hours away from San Mateo and learned first-hand how other salons operate. Though I tried highly rated salons in my new home area, none of them held a candle to the expertise, results, and “wow factor” that results from each visit to Strands. I’m back to stay!”
~ Karen R.

Every stylist and employee within Strands for Hair makes me always feel extremely special. My daughter has also been a customer for over 5 years and she so looks forward to the treatment provided by Carisa and others. Keep up the Great Job!”
