I had a wonderful experience at Kriza recently with stylist Samer. He worked his magic on my hair and I am VERY happy. I have been extremely disappointed over the last year after seeing several colorists who claim they are blonde experts...only to come out hundreds of dollars later having the same shade of blonde I walked in with. When I made a last minute call into Kriza to see if I could get my hair touched up before I left on vacation the next day, they were great with working me into their schedule for the day and booked with me with a new colorist, Samer. He has been a stylist for years, but new to Kriza. I have to say, we clicked right away. He was friendly, down to earth, honest with his assessment of my hair and really worked to give me what I wanted. Because I have been duped by so many other colorists in the past, I was nervous to see if all those foils in my hair were going to do the job. Sure enough, Samer pulled through and gave me EXACTLY what I wanted. This guy is a pro and I really think every blonde should go see him. Kriza should really be grateful to have such a great colorist at their salon. He's a keeper.
A side note, I also wanted to get my hair cut, but at the end I realized that I didn't have enough time. The guy who was going to cut my hair told me that he didn't think given the time frame that I had that he wouldn't be able to do an adequate enough job in that short amount of time. Instead of letting me go, he blow dried my hair still and took good care of me. I forget his name, but he was very generous with his time even though he was not getting business from me that day. I will be going back to him too as I am appreciative of his customer service.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experience! We are thrilled to have Samer as part of our team and even happier that you enjoyed your time in his chair. Jesse was the stylist who helped out with your blowdry on that visit, and we would love to match you with him when you are in need of your next haircut. We look forward to seeing you again.
All the best!
