You have found your PERFECT salon!!!

Lindsay is the stylist you want!!!

I came to her from another very well known salon in Sacramento that had RUINED my hair with glued extentions. My hair is VERY fine and fragile so I didn't have much to work with. Lindsay repaired the problem and has helped me achieve the beautiful hair I have always wanted!!! Everyday I am so happy I have found Lindsay and Salon B!!!

Emma's the stylist you want!

I'm a 23 year old male, and have had multiple things done to my hair, texture, cut, highlights, full bleach out, and color. Emma is the most talented stylist there in my opinion. Sweet and artistic, she's worth the money for sure! The entire salon staff is friendly, the owners are awesome, and the atmosphere is great! Look no further for a great salon!

Best Salon in Sacramento and Amy is superb!

I used to go to Hoshall's and they did a good job but this place really goes the extra mile for you. I got a free hand and arm massage with my cut (I had a choice between a few others and that one) and Amy, who did my hair, did an awesome job! She really does know her stuff and I highly recommend her to people that are particular about their hair. I went in with slightly damaged medium brown hair and came out with light, natural looking blonde hair just like I wanted and it's shiny and healthy looking, to boot. I will be going in for the Brazilian blowout next - can't wait - this place rocks!

Great value, great haircut!

I happen to come upon this place that offers a barber cut for guys like me who wanted to get a salon quality haircut without having to pay the salon price. I have yet to be disappointed. I recommend Amy or Mya if you want a styled or smooth looking haircut-for sure!

What a breath of fresh air!

I have to admit, I'm one of those people who is willing to try anything once. To me, hair is an adventure. I have spent a lot of time and money over the years on that adventure. I've had many looks I liked, many I didn't. Mostly, though, I've just never known what to do with it.

When Amy suggested I come by the salon, I wasn't sure what to expect. I never know how hip and trendy a salon is going to try to be, versus classic and fabulous. While I'm willing to be brave most of the time, it would be difficult to explain to my boss what I was thinking when I ""went there"" with my hair this time around. But like I said, I'm willing to try anything once, so I gave it a shot.

Salon b is a fantastic place. I felt at home in the salon as soon as I go there. Everyone is friendly, courteous, attentive and you can tell that they LOVE their jobs. I couldn't wait to see what they could do!

Amy is the color goddess. She corrected my box-black mess with very little fuss, and only a minor scolding. ;) Both the color and cut I received were with little to no prompting from myself. They turned out to be exactly what I needed! Talk about knowing your stuff! To be able to look at me, see my personality and create the perfect hair style and color combo for me has got to be award winning talent!

I walked in with an open mind and walked out with the best cut and color I've ever had! I'd trust my head to Salon b ANY DAY!

Amy Rocks!!!

I've gone to about every top salon in San Francisco and paid hundreds for hair cuts and color to find that perfect stylist. Little did I know she was hiding in Sacramento. Since I live between San Francisco and Sacramento and have been disappointed in all the hype over SF stylists, I thought I would research stylists in the Sacramento area. I read all the reviews on City Search and decided I would try Amy. Boy am I glad that I did. She actually listened to what I was saying and gave me the cut I've been asking others for, for over a year. I decided to stay conservative with my color, but looking forward to a big change the next time I see Amy.

I also want to express how amazing the entire staff is, starting with Emiko. She fit me in and worked with my schedule. The customer service I received was more than I could have ever asked. While I was there I met one of the owners Scot, who was extremely personable.

I can't say enough positive things about the salon and Amy. For those of you looking for a new stylist, you will not be disappointed by making an appointment!

Amy is the hair goddess!!!!

I have been going to a popular salon downtown for over two years and was never completely satisfied with my cut and color. However, I did what a lot of us do.....I became comfortable with my hair stylist and did not want to step outside the box. Heck, we all get in a rut sometimes and it takes an act of God to get you out. I did not want to even attempt to find a new stylist, because there are so many salons in Sactown. I finally came to the conclusion that my hair could go on being average forever or I could take the leap of faith. I am so happy I finally took the chance and trusted Salon B and Amy. My hair color is awesome and Amy made sense out of the mess of a haircut my ex stylist made. All I can say is thank you for making me love my hair again!

Miracle Workers

I came into Salon b today with a color disaster, and left with the most gorgeous red hair EVER. Last week, at another Sacramento salon, I suffered a hair disaster - we are talking white streaks/chunks over a bizarre red color. It was AWFUL. I called Salon B after reading the great reviews online. They were friendly on the phone and set me up with Amy ASAP.

Amy, who is a color certified expert, diligently worked my hair into this gorgeous, debra messing-like red hair. I was thrilled and I am SO happy with my hair. Reds are tricky and Amy nailed it. I couldn't be happier. During my appointment the owner introduced herself to me, and all the stylists were very professional and welcoming. Exceptional job by Amy - thank you so much. I will be back! I love Salon b!

I was very nervous looking for a new stylist and color specialist, but Salonb came highly recommended.

It was reassuring to know that Elle Magazine ranked Salonb one of the top 100 hair salons in the country in the August 09 issue.

Amy listened very carefully to what I wanted and the results are over the top. I've never had a better cut and color... EVER!

Amy is a GODDESS!

The calming ambience of the salon is icing on the cake!

Whenever I've ventured away...I've always come back!

I started out as a client of Kathleen's approximately 15 years ago. Over the years I have also used several other stylists in the salon including Scott, Lindsay and currently Amy. They are all WONDERFUL and I love that I can change between stylists if one of them is booked.

I live in the Auburn area and I hate the drive to Sacramento just to get my hair done. But...every time I get the idea that I will find someone else, I come running back to Salon B. I do feel badly that they have to fix the mess that other stylists make of my hair when I venture off. I would trust any of the stylists at Salon B to cut or color my hair because they are all highly trained and skilled at both.

I do not and never have worked for Salon B but I do feel like part of the family when I am there. I am not surprised that there are so many great reviews because it truly is the best hair salon I have ever been to. I have referred many friends over the years that are still loyal customers. In fact, one of my best friends was in tears from an experience she had recently at a salon in downtown Sacramento. It was a true hair emergency and thankfully Amy was able to fit her in. She is so happy with her hair now and she has not stopped thanking me.

Expert hair care and kind, attentive service

I think that Kathleen and Scott have a real gift for taking care of each customer and still have a busy salon. Their assistants are also very good. Kathleen is a specialist in color and Scott is meticulous with haircuts. I have been in awe of the clients that leave after having Avery do their color and cuts-they looked beautiful. I also like their vast supply of Aveda products.

Amy is an AMAZING hair sylist!

I have been with Amy for about 6 years, and have followed whenever she changed salons. Why? Because I can totally relax with my hair color knowing that it will always come out the way I want it. That is pretty amazing since I am one particular chick!

Amy is the best Stylist I've let touch my hair

I'll start with the salon itself. Salon b has a sense of style that goes well with the great people that work there. I always feel welcome when I come in like I'm seeing old friends again. The staff is at the same time welcoming and professional and the salon is clean and comfortable, with a great design aesthetic.

Amy at Salon b is definitely the best stylist I've been to. She does an amazing job every time on both cuts and color whether for myself or one of my friends. I used to have very straight hair down to the middle of my back. I made the decision one day to cut my hair short and she made me happy I did. Every time I go back I come up with some new style I want and she always manages to make it better and work for me. I highly recommend Amy to anyone out there who wants a professional and modern look.

I got the best hair makeover

I needed a serious hair makeover. I had black ends, brown roots and this was all done by myself at home. I looked up Salon b on city search and liked that they had so many great reviews. I had an amazing experiance at this salon from start to finish. Lindsay at Salon b transformed my bad hair into a beautiful even hair color. She told me what I could expect and delivered 100%. I have received so many compliments on my hair (even from men). I am so happy I came into the salon. I even got a free hand massage while my color was on. Thanks again Lindsay you are so good at what you do!

Amy is the nicest stylist I know and the most artistic! She's been doing my hair since the dawn of time. She really has an excellent eye for what looks good on her clients, she is an excellent listener to what you have to say to achieve the style you want and makes you feel completely comfortable and at ease. I highly highly recommend Amy. If you are questioning which stylist to chose, trust me you can only do wrong if you don't choose Amy - yah!

A family outing

I take my whole family to Amy Anderson at Salon b. My husband enjoys getting an old fashioned straight razor shave and barbershop style treatment. I have 2 pre-teen girls who enjoy get very stylish, trendy, but easy to manage cuts. I myself feel Amy is a miracle worker with color. Being prematurely gray (more than 50%), Amy always keeps my hair colored and cut in great styles.
