Keter Salon is a great escape where Aviva, Lynda, Anna, take excellent care of me for an hour or two. I always walk out feeling fabulous and relaxed. Thank you Keter Salon.

No matter where I end up living – be it Mill Valley or even Austin, TX – I always make the effort to get back to Keter and Aviva for my cut and color. Can’t be beat. She listens, she has mad skills and the entire staff is on a healthy, positive plane. Just love Keter.

It is always a treat to get my hair done and pampered by Jessica! She is great at listening to what you want and then providing her expert input. I trust her with both cutting and coloring my long hair.

I love Keter Salon! I couldn’t do what I do traveling and speaking internationally without Diana and Jordan.

I have had my hair cut by Jennifer and Heidi – both fabulous, skilled, kind, and great to chat with! Everyone I’ve talked to at Keter is friendly and welcoming, and I always leave with that “I feel like a new woman!” Pep in my step. Highly recommended!

Cate, Berkeley

I’ve never colored my hair before so I was a little nervous about the process but Sara was awesome!! She talked me through everything and even let me snap a few selfies during. Keter also allows you to schedule appointments as late as 7:30pm, perfect if you’re a working gal like myself.

IV, San Francisco

Wow! This was my first time at Keter Salon and I’m in love! Tony really listened to what I wanted and gave me, quite possibly, the best cut & style I’ve ever had. His personality is just as great as his skills with hair. Thanks, Tony!
The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The salon is clean and well-appointed. The price of my cut & style was reasonable, especially compared to the salons in Houston, my other home.
I can’t say enough god things about Keter & Tony! I’m a very happy new client!

Sarah, Houston

I have a fair amount of experience with good and bad hair Salons but ever since discovering this place it’s like I just can’t go wrong. I’ve worked with Tony, Nick, and Heidi and they’ve all been amazing. The stylists have really great experience and technique, the hours are flexible, they have junior stylists if you’re on a budget and I love all of their products (yum they smell so good!) I even feel like I’m friends with the front desk ladies.

Tony is amazing at cutting hair. I’ve referred my good friend to him and she was equally pleased. Nick has been doing my color for a long while now, initially starting wth a repair of color that just wasn’t working, he’s consistent, knowledgeable and skilled.  He always listens to what I want and delivers. I just saw Heidi for the first time when I couldn’t get in with Nick before my big trip and she’s amazing. From the moment she started looking at my hair and talking to me I knew she knew what she was doing. She totally listened to me, stayed in my comfort zone but added a little something new. Then she taught me how to properly use a curling iron.

If you’re looking for a salon look no further. This place is the spot.

Bridget, Oakland

Anita is a genius at hair cutting. I have curly hair and I always had trouble trusting a new stylist. Most of the people I have seen in the past somehow always assume I want to leave with straight hair.
Anita really listens to your wants and needs, but also tells you about her ideas and gives you her professional advice. You can trust her opinion and she will make sure your haircut goes well with your face and your style.
The assistants are always very kind and give awesome relaxing head massages.
I have also seen Kiki and Sara in the past and both have done beautiful jobs as well.
Shoutout to the girls at the reception for always being so friendly and charming, in person, over email, and over the phone.
What makes a great salon is the people behind it, and Keter definitely makes you feel like you belong.

Lanéa, El Cerrito

Booking an appointment over the phone was easy and the woman I spoke with was nice in helping me decide what kind of coloring style I actually wanted.

Came in to get a balayage done hoping to eventually get it to an ashy tone. I was already aware going in that I will definitely need more than one session since my hair was dark brown.

Heidi was awesome! She really listened to me and understood what I wanted to do with my hair. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She was gentle and really made me feel like I was getting the right treatment. Even though it took longer than expected for me to sit under the heat lamps and went over her next appointment, she didn’t make me feel like she was rushing or that I was taking up her time. She seemed to be very concerned that I wouldn’t feel like I got the color that I was expecting, which I very much appreciated.

Thank you Heidi!

Katherine, New York

I desperately needed my hair to look alive when I take my graduation photos… My hair was very brassy and dry, I hated it! I called in weeks ahead and made it an appointment with Jordan for a toner and blow dry. It’s very nice to have Keter Salon send me reminders for my hair appointment.

Jordan did wonders to my hair! She tamed my hair down to a nice cool ash brown color after we talked about what I wanted to do. Jordan and I picked out the color that we thought was best for me and it really turned out great! It actually looked better than my expectations. Afterwards, Jordan blow dried my hair and did gorgeous curls for me. It was perfect for my graduation photo shoot.

I would highly recommend Jordan! Not only is she a great stylist but a wonderful kind person! I enjoyed our conversations throughout the whole session. I’m definitely going back to Jordan for any hair color related treatment.

Kalley, San Francisco

My hair was in dire need of repair. It was beginning to break off from bleaching it throughout the years. At this point I just wanted my hair to look alive again.

I made an appointment at Keter Salon and saw Jo-Anna. She was very pleasant to talk to and very hopeful about making my hair look healthy again which made me feel at ease.

I told her about how I wanted to go dark and to  cut off about 6 inches off and style it the way she felt it would fit me. At this point she made me really gain her trust since she was very knowledgeable about her work and products.

I am very pleased with Jo-Anna’s service and her work! I absolutely LOVE my hair and it feels great!Thank you Keter Salon and Jo-Anna!!!

Edylyn, Pacifica

I have been visiting Keter for 10 years and I have had nothing but good experiences there with three different stylists, Avivia, Heidi, and Sasha.

When I first came to Keter, I found Aviva. She has a relaxed vibe but is fastidious about detail. She has talked me out of some impulsive ideas and bordered on a personal therapist at times. She is an amazing stylist and an all-around kind and lovely person. Alas, word has gotten out about Aviva, and it can now take a few months to book an appointment with her.

So…I’ve started seeing Heidi, who is also amazing AND has good availability. She recently cut my hair short after I’d had it long for almost a decade, and she did a really nice job. She is careful and skilled at color as well. Highly recommend.

Sasha has also given me beautiful cuts, and she is the go-to for my two boys, now ages 4 and 6. We have been going to her since their very first cuts. She is ridiculously skilled at making little ones feel comfortable with her humor, charisma, and warmth. My kids adore her.

I have also had positive experiences with the front desk and various assistants. I give this business my highest endorsement.

Erika, Berkeley

Aviva did all the hairstyling for one of my best friends weddings and she did an absolutely wonderful job. She listened to what everyone wanted and brought their desires to life. The brides hairstyle was so romantic and beautiful and exactly what she wanted! Thank you Aviva for making everyone feel beautiful! If you are looking to book someone for a special event look no further than Aviva!

Gina, Portland

“Have been coming here since late 2014 and never felt the need to go anywhere else for balyage/color/cut. Joanna understands and reads her clients so well. She gets my hair, style and what I am in the mood for. Never have I not received a compliment on my color after seeing Joanna. Definitely recommended for those who don’t just trust anybody with their hair!! Joanna will not disappoint!”

Tanzina, San Francisco

Diana has cut my hair for at least a decade, and other stylists at Keter occasionally as well: Jordan is now my go to for color but I’ve also worked with Anita in the past. The best experience I’ve ever enjoyed in a salon, consistently, hands down. In the past ten years or so I’ve probably referred at last 20 people, who all come back for years. I know I look my best in the very frequent speaking and media appearances that are part of my work. Diana’s giving back to the community is never tiring, and she’s created one of the best places to work in the industry. I don’t know what I’d do without Keter Salon.

Constance, Richmond

“I’ve been going to Keter for a year now and I like the atmosphere and the staff. I go every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain my pixie cut, and Rachel always rocks my hair!”

Crystal, Oakland

I’ve been here for cuts and color several times, and highly recommend the salon. They’re friendly and professional, and I’ve never left disappointed.

Upon arriving, I’m always greeted warmly and offered tea. Their seating area is nice, and it’s rare that you’re left waiting for long. They have different stylists for cuts vs color, which I appreciate.

I go more often for cuts than color, and always go to Sam. He’s meticulous with the scissors, and does a phenomenal job with my thin hair. I give him an idea of what I’d like, and trust him completely. It’s $75 + tip for a cut with him, which always seems expensive when I’m booking, but I can promise its well worth it for such a high quality cut.

I haven’t colored my hair in awhile, but if I wanted to do something edgy or complicated, this would totally be the place I would trust. They’re all just really creative and talented.

Tips: book well in advance, as they fill up quickly. Be sure to bring cash for tip – you can’t add it on your credit/debit. Parking is validated in the big lot on university and fourth.

Angela, Berkeley

WOWOWOWOWOWOW!! Went in for a balayage done by Sara today and it was amazing!!! I had no idea what to expect going in, since I have really thick, jet black, coarse Asian hair. Previously, a friend had bleached my hair and left it damaged and brassy, leading me to chop off all of the color, so I didn’t want to make a huge change today.

I asked for a cool, ashy brown balayage (knowing that it may take a few sessions to get the color), but Sara reassured me that she’d go as light as she could today.  Throughout my session, she chatted with me about her boyfriend and dogs and life, and she was super sweet! I was pleasantly surprised with my end result- subtle, caramel highlights AND hair that didn’t feel damaged AT ALL . I’m actually so pleased with it that I don’t even need the ashy brown anymore LOL but if I were to go lighter, I’d go back here for sure!

Sharon, Walnut

“This was my second visit to Keter but my first haircut with Tony—I had decided, since the salon was new, to try a few people out. Looks like I don’t want to try anyone else though. I have very fine hair. Tony understands this can be challenging but knew just what to do to give my hair body and lift. More than a month later the cut is holding up. It didn’t self-destructs in two or three weeks as cuts sometimes do. I’m pleased. Tony is also very personable, an easy guy to spend an hour with as he does the job. I’ll be back!”

Marie, Redway

Sara did a great job tailoring the shape of my hair to my specific face shape while cutting it exactly the way I wanted! This place is really friendly; they give you the option of choosing a variety of teas to drink, and they even have a resident pup–winning combo. Thanks again, Sara!

Zachary, Berkeley

Let me start out by saying I put great importance on my hair and love my long locks so I have been doing my research on the best salons in the area to get my summer bylage streaks. I was walking past Keter Salon when I saw the most luxurious perfectly highlighted mane on a woman in the chair. Her hair was so shiny and the colors did not look brassy at all. I walked up and told her that her hair looked amazing.She said thank u and told me her stylist was Roxy and that Roxy had been doing her hair for a couple of years now and that she has never been unsatisfied with her hair after Roxy works on it. Then a tall pretty lady with a pixie walked up that’s when the patron introduced us. I asked her if she could squeeze me in next week for a trim and color. Roxy booked me for a Wednesday at 11am.She wasn’t late and didn’t have me waiting around forever while she worked on someone else like my last stylist did. I told her I wanted to have hair like JLo but I was concerned about damage and breakage. Roxy assured me that neither of those things were gonna happen and that calmed my nerves. That’s when Roxy went to work on my double process.First she did an all over base color then hand painted streaks on my head.She told me she was using a product-treatment called Olaplex and that it was the hair bonder that actually repairs the hair instead of just masking the issue. Then came the blowout and the scariest part the trim.I told her don’t take off more than a half inch because in the past I have had stylists wack it off when I didn’t ask for that.Roxy respected my wishes and recommend I do a few framing layers around the parameter of my face.When all was said and done I left looking like a goddess ! It’s been a few weeks and 0 breakage !!!! Thank u Roxy ! & thank you Keter Salon for a wonderful experience

Cara, Pinole

Yesterday I had an appointment with Roxy. IT was AMAZING!!!!!! I went in after coloring my own hair. I had reds and Browns in my hair and wanted to go blonde. Roxy knew it was going to be a project and put her all into it! She educated me on what she was doing and how it benefited me. And let me say…. The hair washing part of this was a memorable moment! I’ve never felt so relaxed! My hair turned out even better than I had expected!! Thank you Roxy for going above and beyond to make my hair perfect! I knew it was great when my daughter told me I looked like Beyoncé lol!!! I definitely will refer  friends and family to you and I know they’ll all be pleased!

Isabella, Richmond

I love the new salon! Anita is the best colorist I’ve ever had and her haircuts are simply terrific. My appointment was right on time, and my experience with the assistant staff was as good as it gets. Thank you!

Jane, San Rafael

This is my new favorite place. After bopping around to multiple salons and stylists but never feeling the urge to commit, this is where I’ll be returning to again and again.

Based on a recommendation from a friend I made an appointment with Jennifer. Right away, Jennifer  was very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable in helping me plan a pretty drastic cut. She helped me decide on a cut and color based on the look and feel I was after. And she did a terrific job! I love my new look and am excited to go through the various stages of short hair to long hair transition over the coming months/years!!

Really incredible cut & color and great experience all around.

Nellie, Santa Rosa

I adored Jo-Anna! After I arrived for my appointment, she promptly greeted me and offered me refreshments. I felt very welcomed right when I entered the salon, and I didn’t even have to wait.

Jo-Anna attentively listened to how I want to change my hair and we decided on a plan together. I went in with a washed green highlights which I very much wanted to get rid of. Basically, I had to do a color correction. Jo-Anna worked really hard to change my hair to something GREAT. I loved it. I was very satisfied with the result and I am here to stay for my future haircuts and color dyes. I was getting compliments from my friends already!

I would absolutely recommend Keter Salon for their friendly service and especially Jo-Anna! She had an amazing attitude and a positive energy. Great experience.

Kailey, San Francisco

The place has a great vibe and Diana is just always doing something fresh at her shop. I have faith that when I tell her to ‘have at it’ with my hair, she will execute a great cut taking my concerns and interests into consideration while using her creative gifts to execute a style that is truly flattering. I ALWAYS get oodles of compliments on my hair, even just before it’s time to get back in her styling chair again!

Lynn, Berkeley

It was great. I can afford to get my hair colored through the students. They do an excellent job and get great supervision. I am the kind of person who likes everything explained to me. I want to understand the process as best as possible. They always indulge me. I get a great hair wash and scalp massage. The ‘piece de resistance’ is the blow out.

Miral, Berkeley

Yesterday I was shopping at Safeway, and a woman walked by and said “your hair is beautiful.”  I thanked her, of course, and it reminded me that Anita did highlights for me over a month ago, and my hair still looks great.  She did a first-rate job, and I’m so thankful.   I have gone to other salons for highlights and been disappointed in the past.  Anita is the best.

Gail, Pinole

Once again, Joanna has gone above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. I went back for a neck trim on the super cute haircut that she gave me, only expecting to get a little bit of a trim and she ended up spending extra time and care–making sure my haircut was growing out perfectly. I never thought I would look good with a short pixie cut, but Joanna has proved my assumptions wrong.

I also want to note that I bleached my hair (on my own) since seen Joanna last. She recommended this amazing product to keep my hair platinum and cancel out the gold tones. I’ve used a lot of products before to maintain blonde hair, however this one is definitely the best I’ve come across. And very very happy with my touch up as well as my color right now.

Can’t wait to see Joanna again in a month!!

Ashley, Saint James City

The last time I had my hair in a bob was over four years ago. It’s hard for me to trust my hair to a hairdresser ever since I had my hair cut in a bad way. After two years, I decided to have my hair cut short again. And I am glad to find the perfect place and be taken care of by the perfect stylist. I love what Tony did with my hair! He is awesome!!

Frances, Hercules

Ladies AND gentlemen, if you have yet to let the talented, supreme-stylist, Jenn, work your hair with her magic shears then you have been missing out! This artist will snip, shape, and tame your mane into a legitimate masterpiece. Call for an appointment because she books up fast, but definitely worth the wait. Super nice, friendly and personable, Jenn will make you feel right at home and ready to hit the town dripping in swagoo…10 outta 10!

Daniel, San Francisco

Kiki is a fabulous stylist–totally professional, way, way beyond competent, a terrific listener, and a pleasure to talk to. I have complete confidence in her skills, and I always leave the salon feeling rejuvenated (and with my hair looking quite a bit better than it did when I arrived!).

Lynne, Berkeley

Finding Keter Salon (Tony) has been one of the highlights since my move to Berkeley in August! Tony is a true artist who knows his craft paying attention to detail and perfection. He checks in with me to make sure that we agree on what the result of each haircut will be .. considering use of product, length, my personal preferences .. my hair’s peculiarities .. the whole gestalt. The results are always outstanding. In addition, Keter Salon itself is a comfortable and nurturing environment for clients. Front desk staff are cheerful and engaging offering tea, water, etc. The ambiance is relaxed and nurturing.

Debbie, Berkeley

Keter Salon is a wonderful experience, and everyone there is so nice. I love my hair now, and owe it to Keter. Such talented people, when you walk out of there you look and feel beautiful!

Jennifer, Berkeley

Outstanding service and truly talented stylists! I always look forward to spending a couple of hours at Keter to get a cut and color. Kiki has been my go-to stylist for years, but I notice everyone looking great when they come out of the chair!

Brooke, Oakland

I have been getting my hair cut and colored by Aya for the past 2 or 3 years and she always does an amazing job! She’s such a sweetheart! I definitely recommend her for all services she’s great!

Orianna, Alameda

5 star rating for Amy. Amy is a color specialist. Very excellent. When my sister saw my beautiful hair color, she decided to come to Berekely to Keter from Half Moon Bay! Every 4 to 5 weeks

Abbey, Berkeley

Sasha always does an excellent job!!!

Megan, Berkeley

Diana always does nice work. I’m happy with my cut.
