Claudia is an absolute creator! After months of neglect my hair was starting to look like I dip dyed it in some red Koolaid. I came in with such a short window to get it back to a presentable state. I was being super indecisive about what I wanted but Claudia was super patient and gave me helpful suggestions upon me describing my daily routines, how much time I spend getting ready in the morning and how much I was willing to do to maintain it. After all that she still patiently highlighted my hair using what felt like 200 foils and it came out gorgeously! (I'll add a recent picture in the end)But as for the salon itself, it's such a perfect little getaway! I love that it feels like luxury in charming downtown Pleasanton. I'm from Orange County and I'm so glad to be able to find excellent quality and not have to go to a big city to find it. Absolutely love it and will definitely be back! More...

I had the most amazing experience getting a hair cut by Kim today. I came in with an idea and she completely brought that vision to life. I wanted an A-Symmetrical Lob and she nailed it. Not only was I so obsessed with my new identity lol but Kim was so extremely personable, cute, professional and obviously talented. She updated me on what steps she would be doing for my hair cut. I thought this was very professional and kind of her! I have no idea what a hair cut really consists of so to be in communication with her was super appreciated. Did I mention she's super pretty and just overall made my experience smooth and satisfying. I even booked a touch up hair cut with her. She is that good. All of the other stylists and staff members are so sweet and the aesthetic of the salon is so cute. More...

Great hair high lights  and wash and dry . Offered multiple coffees and were very polite and attentive . Would return for sure but it is a bit pricey so cannot go often . Most Pleasanton hairdressers are pricey however . Better to make a trek to Fremont More...

This is a wonderful salon located in the heart of downtown Pleasanton! The ambiance inside is elegant and all of the stylists are kind and friendly. This past visit, I received a foilyage and cut with Claudia to lighten up my look and accentuate my curls. My hair looks SO good! Claudia listened to what I wanted and then blew me away with the end product over-exceeding my expectations. She even helped me pick hair products that would fit my newly embraced curls. I highly recommend visiting this salon and seeing Claudia! More...

I have been going to Victoria's Salon for 10 years ever since we moved to Pleasanton. This  salon has been consistently the best for me. I mean I'm always happy with my cut, color, style and absolutely love my hair. The salon is beautiful, comfortable, and excels with great customer service. The owner Victoria  carries terrific hair products and makeup. The  women who work with her are an amazing team. Treat yourself to having your hair and makeup done! Rachel is my hair stylist. She's efficient, versatile, and great at correcting problems. More...

This is one of the best kept secrets in Cotati. I get my pedicures here and the women who work here are very nice and ask you what you want and listen to you. I realized that they also cut hair here and got a wonderful haircut today. I brought in a picture... and MInh did a great job of replicating it. I highly recommend this place. More...

Victoria's Salon and my stylist Rachel Manifesto are the absolute best!! My husband and I moved to Danville a few years back and I needed to find a salon and stylist up here. Thankfully Victoria's was recommended to me and I am so glad it was!Rachel is truly wonderful and always makes me feel great after my appointment. She listens to what I have in mind and will give me suggestions as to what she thinks will be the best for me and my hair. She has excellent color and cut techniques and is always up-to-date on the latest trends and I am so thankful she's my stylist! More...

I've been going to Victoria for over 15 years and, obviously, think she (and her salon) are amazing.  She consistently provides a warm and welcoming environment that always feels like a spa experience.  Additionally, I routinely leave with hair that consistently gets compliments (which I totally attribute to Vic and her magic!).  I'd recommend this salon and all of its services (the new add-ons are awesome!) to anyone!

OMG this is long overdue.  This place and Kaylin saved my wedding day!I didn't realize this hidden gem was in downtown Pleasanton all the times I've been down there...  On my wedding day my original hairstylist ended up in ER and on a Saturday morning I called this place and they were able to squeeze me in.  I was so happy and satisfied with my style.  I will be returning this Friday for a root touch up.

Kira squeezed me in for a facial this afternoon and I'm thrilled with the results. She was very direct and proactive about asking what I was expecting- and I told her I don't care what you do I want to glow. Kira suggested a vitamin c light peel, mixed with the pumpkin mask. Both are anti bacterial, hydrating, purifying and exfoliating. Since it is late spring early summer I wanted to look fresh and pure. As someone who gets a facial very frequently I was impressed with her technique, and pressure. She definitely knows what she is doing. I left getting exactly what I asked for, a glowing face and a super relaxing experience. I highly recommend Kira for her services. More...

Rachel is the BEST. She has been doing my hair for years and always does an amazing job. I don't trust anyone else with my hair. Whether I want to try something totally new or just a simple cut, she always get it's perfectly right. She recently did balayage highlights on my hair from dark brown to a Carmel color and I'm totally obsessed. More...

Still going to Raschell and still love her. She always makes my hair look great. Whether I'm in the mood to experiment or just want to do the same thing as my last appointment, I always leave the salon loving my hair. As a blonde I have to say, she is amazing with blonde hair which can be hard to find. More...

Raschell and Kira are amazing. I won’t let anyone else touch my hair or face. Kira gives the best facials and she’s very knowledgeable on all of the products. I’ve been coming here for about 20 years and I’m a client for life. I can’t forget the snacks and mimosas....I love my salon time every 6 weeks. Love you gals! More...

This salon is located towards the south end of Downtown Pleasanton on Main Street. I was looking to get my hair cut and colored and had a limited amount of time to do so. I called and they were able to get me in the next day. Kim was my stylist, very professional and listened to what I was looking for. I just wanted an all over color, no highlights or anything. Needed to cover up those grey's=( and a trim to get rid of the dead ends. I don't have as much hair as I used to before I had kids, so it doesn't take to long to get it done. Kim is really nice and fun to talk with while getting my hair done. She listened to what I had to say and made sure that I was happy with the outcome and her services. You pay for what you get. If you're looking for a fast and cheap haircut, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a relaxing place to get your hair done by a professional, then Victoria's is the place to come.

Tried a few places in the Trivalley that I went to through referrals, and wasn't incredibly impressed. But I decided to look on Yelp and was impressed by the reviews [with pics] of Juliana's work at Victoria's Salon. It was a way more emotional decision than I want to admit, so I was apprehensive to say the least. I was pretty embarrassed of my hair but Juliana made me so comfortable and excited about the potential of what my hair could look like. The salon itself is pretty much a girl's "free afternoon" fantasy. With the services they offer, I could spend all day there. Super clean, super chic, and everyone is service oriented. I had Kaylynn cut my hair. And it's actually a funny story because I stopped a woman in the nail salon a couple of months ago to comment on her hair. It was an amazing cut. She wrote down the name of the stylist, Kaylynn, and then of course I lost the paper. It was a coincidence that I had Kaylynn cut my hair, and loved it. A couple of days later I stumbled on the paper the woman wrote for me, and loved that I was able to have someone that I wanted to go see. My hair has a ton of box red in it, so I didn't have high expectations of what my color could look like. I wanted to go lighter, but back to my natural ashy color. The way Juliana tied in the highlights and balayage in addition to the toner she used gave me a completely different look without over processing. Asking what my goals were and explaining the process, we came up with a plan to get to my dream hair. But the steps in between I am incredibly happy with, too. Thank you Juliana & Kaylynn for embodying a service oriented salon. You clearly have created a raving fan. [and next time I promise I will post pics of your work!]By the way...the value for the price is outstanding. It is not going to be the cheapest you will find. But if you are looking for the cheapest for your hair, that may not be the best idea.... Please reconsider. And google bad hair jobs to inspire you to invest in going to a legit place. More...

This is the best salon I've ever gone to! The service was amazing and I got in super fast. My hair stylist was Felicia yulo and she did a great job.

Looking for a great colorist/stylist? Dying to try a keratin treatment? There is no one better than Juliana Ohlmeyer at Victoria's Salon in Pleasanton!  Today, she did a color correction from red to a soft brunette on my hair. Loved the red, was just looking for a new look. Great blowout to end a perfect service. Book with Juliana today! More...

I came in to Victoria's Salon about a week ago and saw Juliana for a kerastase treatment and blow out... The entire experience was stellar! The receptionist at the front desk was super nice, the atmosphere in the salon was on point, and Juliana did an amazing job on my hair. My hair usually takes stylists foreverr to dry because it is thick and a bit difficult to work with, but Juliana was able to wash, dry and style it in less than an hour!! My hair looked and even felt better than it has in the past when I've gone to other stylists. It was soo soft and manageable in the days to come... Dry shampoo was all I used (and needed) for like 5 days- I put off washing it because I didn't want to say goodbye to my perfectly smoothed out mane! Juliana's sweet and bubbly personality made my experience that much more enjoyable, I lovee someone who wants to chat while they're doing my hair! I got to leave with pretty locks, and had a fun time in her chair as a bonus :) I will definitely be returning to Juliana for my blow outs in the future, and am also considering coming to her for a Keratin before summer starts!

Even though I'd travel great lengths to see Julianna for her hair magic-I'm so happy she hopped over the bay! Jules knows what's best for my hair, she always puts my health, lifestyle and the integrity of my hair first before making any big moves (if you have thin, fragile hair like me-this is a major factor) Jules has an eye-she does what and how to bring out the best qualities. She's an all around sweetie and besides looking and feeling great-I genuinely have a relaxing/fun time in Julianna's chair!I also love this salon, it has a glamorous yet humble feel. The owner and main stylist, Victoria, is a sweetheart. Hair is her life and her dedication to the salon shows. The salon has top products to help you maintain your beautiful hair. Now that my favorite hair guru is in town-I'll be here much, much more-beyond hair services. (They do make-up, lashes, and skincare work) More...

I first started getting my hair done here about six years ago! I've gotten multiple services done here over the past few years and every time my experience was amazing! I moved out of town and have not been here for a few years. Recently I was in town visiting family and wanted a blow out. I decided to stop by here since I have  such positive memories from there! My stylist was Juliana and she was so amazing! It felt like I was talking to an old friend. I have very difficult hair. Very very curly and coarse. She gave me an amazing mask that made my hair feel silky smooth(which rarely ever happens since my hair is so coarse). Even my boyfriend was surprised at how soft and smooth it was. She worked serious magic on my hair! She listened to what I wanted and executed it perfectly. Whenever I get blow outs I usually have to go home and fix it because I'm a perfectionist. I did not have to do that after this one!! As well, it seriously feels like you're in a high end spa when you're there. Every part of the experience felt luxurious. I wish I lived closer so I could frequent more often. Go see Juliana. Go see the salon. You won't regret it! More...

Came back to Victoria's after a few years and was not disappointed, same impeccable service. Juliana colored and styled my hair. Beautiful natural highlights, exactly how I like it. Since my hair was a little bit damaged she applied a mask that made it look shiny and healthy again. Her expertise, happy and positive attitude are a major plus! Thank you, Juliana! Looking forward to my next visit More...

It was my first time here & thanks to Julianna I had an amazing experience. This salon does it all! Literally. The service was amazing. Julianna gave me a tour of the salon then sat me down and talked about what wanted to achieve. I wanted something fun & different Julianna nailed it. I will definitely be back Juliana has done my hair in past & always love it whether it's root touch up or a fun color. More...

I just got my hair colored for the first time at Victoria's salon with Julianna. I followed Julianna there from SF. She's been coloring my hair for years. Where she goes I go. I LOVED my experience at Victoria's! I'll definitely be back there ! The salon literally has everything and every service possible there which I loved. I always let Julianna do as she pleases with my hair whether it's highlights or a lilac purple or gray or even baby pink. Definitely check her out ! :) More...

Yesterday was my first time at Victoria's Salon. I have been getting my hair done by Juliana at a salon in SF for years and I've never been let down, so I followed her here to Victoria's! This last visit with her at Victoria's Salon was extra special. The salon is absolutely beautiful, the décor, lighting, everything is perfect. As soon as I got there Juliana gave me a tour, she showed me the waxing room, the makeup bar, color room etc. She then sat me down and asked what my goals were for my hair and what exactly I was hoping to achieve. I always trust her to make decisions with my hair so she ended up doing a full highlight, and a keratin treatment. I am so pleased with the outcome of my hair. I loved the vibes in the salon and Juliana's attentiveness. If you're looking for someone who truly wants to help you achieve your goals with your hair give Juliana a call! I will definitely be back to see her again soon! More...

I followed my colorist Juliana to Victoria's Salon. She's AMAZING and I wouldn't trust anybody else with my color. As a natural blonde as a kid, I find it hard to embrace my current brunette roots. Juliana knows how to highlight my hair to the perfect bronde so that when my roots grow out it still looks amazing. And don't even get me started on he BLOWOUTS! Great experience and great expertise!

Oh. My. God. I cannot say enough amazing things about Juliana. I've been wanting to start lightening up my hair for a while, but I'm SO picky about it. I was too scared to jump straight into blonde because of the damage it would do, but I've always avoided highlights because I'm terrified of it looking too stringy or too chunky. I mean let's face it, how many women do you see walking down the street looking like they just stepped out of a barn with straw sticking out of their head, or rocking the Kelly Clarkson look? Bad highlights are THE. WORST. But I decided to face my fears, and after an appointment with Jules- I could not possibly be more happy that I did! Not only did she give me the most beautiful, softly blended highlights, but she is the sweetest, most fun person to talk to! None of that awkward small talk with your stylist crap. She will make you feel so welcome and comfortable. I walked out of the salon feeling so happy and excited with my new look. It has enough oomf to make it feel new and exciting, but soft enough to make me feel natural and sun-kissed. Not to mention- it's healthy and shiny! I can't wait to go back and see her for more!

I was new to the area and Victoria's Salon was recommended, specifically, Raschell.  I instantly fell in love with the decor and Raschell is equally adorable.  Because Raschell loves what she does and really cares, we have developed a great relationship through open lines of communication and trust.  Consistently, she does an amazing job on my color, and when I have taken things into my own hands, (not any more!) she is accommodating, and fixes it, beautifully!  Victoria, herself, is an absolute sweetheart.  Even though I am not her client, she always makes it a point to say hello and ask me how I am.  Victoria's Salon is truly five stars!

I have been going to Raschell for years and have never been disappointed. She does an amazing job at everything! I have really long hair (that is probably not the most fun to style) and she cuts it and colors it beautifully. When I'm indecisive with my hair, she has always given smart, professional advice and has never let me down. I highly recommend anyone to go her that is looking for an amazing stylist! She is the best! More...

Over the years, I've lived in New York, Toronto and the Bay Area, so I've had a lot of experience with salons.  Victoria's is the most professional, skilled set of stylists I've ever encountered.  Vic runs a first-class operation and is extremely attentive to the needs and interests of the customer.  I have curly, unruly hair that, naturally, I want to wear smooth and straight.  I also want a much lighter shade than my original dark brown, since I think the lighter color is nicer on this (slightly!) aging face.  The stylish cut makes the hair manageable, and the color is beautiful.  Do yourself a favor: make an appointment, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere (and maybe a glass of wine) and leave feeling stylish and elegant.

I've known Victoria since the 80's when she used to have a spot in a posh salon in Fremont. I had no clue how to change my style so I left it to chance! She knew just what looked best for me.  My best hair compliments were due to her nice work. When she opened her own salon in Pleasanton, I was there a few times but due to schedule conflicts, I had to go elsewhere. My hair was never the same so I decided to take the longer trip to see her again.  Best decision ever!  And boy she has some memory.  She remembers stories we shared from wayyyy back which makes my experience quite fun and personable. Her staff is great most especially RACHEL! When Victoria is not available, I go to Rachel! She has been with Victoria's for many years! Quite a talent! If you want to feel specially spoiled for a day & love VIP treatment, come to Victoria's More...

I've been coming to Victoria's Salon, almost from day one. In fact, back in the day, I was on the waiting list to become a client of Victoria. But believe me when I say, she was worth the wait. She's been doing my hair for 20+ years and she never fails to making me feel more beautiful when I walk out. I even have to carry her business cards to hand out (I write my name on it, so they know who she can reference.)Victoria continues to amaze me with her attention to detail with her clientele. She is a natural with hair and she JUST KNOWS what will look best, so I trust her completely!The Salon is elegant and relaxing, hip and cool, all rolled into one. ALL of her staff is warm, friendly, and at your service at all times i.e., wine, coffee, snacks etc. and if you're lucky, freshly baked goodies from hers truly!!!And lastly, the Salon offers only the best hair products; Kerastase, Shi Uemura, and dermalogica.

This rating is based on just the service I received which was an eyebrow wax from Kira, the salon's esthetician. This is the first time I have been to a salon to get my brows done and would previously just go to my nail salon. Usually I get very red and break out. Neither of that happened when Kira worked her magic! She is quick but also does a thorough job. Anyone looking to get their brows done come here! Thanks Kira! More...

This was my first hair cut in seven years.  I grew out my hair and cut twelve inches off for Locks of Love.  Then, I went to Victoria to get a flattering hair style.  She is blessed with a gift of knowing what looks good and then has the skill to make it happen.  Since that day I have been so happy every time I look in the mirror.  Victoria taught me how to style it, and it is so easy to do.  I wake up and it still looks good for several days without doing anything to it, but brushing it.  It is amazing.  It is definitely the cut that makes it happen.  I feel ten years younger with this haircut.  I wanted to keep my graying hair and she actually liked it too.  The shop is filled with profession stylists in a beautiful salon.  Victoria runs a tight ship and it shows.  It is the first salon I have ever been to where all the stylists look like they just had a make over.  Oh, and they are reasonably priced too.  Everyone was so nice, I can't wait to go back for my next haircut.

Salon Victoria is wonderful. They did an amazing job with my hair and make-up for my wedding.

I drive an hour to get my done here, the service is that good.  Catalina Perez works on my hair, she is absolutely the greatest!  I know that whatever color or style  I want on my hair, she will make happen.  She is able to tame my curly and unruly hair with hair cuts that are for my hair type. As far as hair color, Catalina always gives me a hair color that compliments my skin tone; to also go along with the seasons (lighter in the summer, darker in the winter) and trends (ombre, highlights, etc).  The salon itself, is very clean and well kept, with a very modern design.  The complimentary wine, mimosas, and snacks are also a definite plus.

She goes out of her way to make sure you are happy with your hair and she is a great listener. I can't say enough about Catalina and her skills. They are top notch!

I went to Victoria's Salon from my realtor's recommendation when I first moved to Pleasanton over two years ago and I haven't needed to look for a new salon since.  I went to Raschelle my first time and my highlights and cut were perfect, which is challenging because of my short cut and the detail that needs to go into the cut.  I can always count on Raschelle for a perfect cut and highlight.  Everyone in the salon is very friendly and helpful.  Jessica is fantastic as well for waxing, make-up and skin care.  I definitely recommend Victoria's Salon!

Victoria's Salon is a 5 Diamond salon.  Their staff is extremely knowledgable and very polite.  They are the Nordstrom of salons.  The service they provide makes them stand out from the rest. They are well rounded salon providing the only the best in products and cuts.  My stylist is Catalina Perez. I have been a client with her for over 5 years. After many years of bad color, bleaching, and terrible cuts,  Kerastase and Catalina saved my hair.  I recommend her and Kerastase to everyone i know.I look forward to my appointments not only because I can relax in the beauty and tranquility of the salon but because I will enjoy it with a Mimosa or glass of wine.  Take a chance and switch to Victoria's salon. I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed.  I very happy clientEs. More...

First Class Top Notch Salon!  I have been going there for six years, Lindsy does my hair and it's PERFECT every time.   I look forward to my once a month appointments.  I also purchase all of my hair products and cosmetics from Victoria's.  Top quality!    Customer service is the BEST!  The ladies at the front are always willing to help and do a great job.  I truly can't say enough positive about Victoria's - it's a great place!

We went to Victoria's on a word-of-mouth recommendation and they were great!The girls at Victoria's did hair and makeup for my wedding, all of my bridesmaids, and my mom and we all looked gorgeous!  They are great for a natural but still beautiful look, not overdone but very pretty.  The bridesmaids had half-up hair but each had their own look and each looked great!  I had a couple of pictures to show for my look and they did a great job!  Jessica did my makeup and trial and she was great.  I told her the stuff I wanted changed from the trial and she made sure I was happy before I left.  The salon is super cute - chandeliers, floor length mirrors, and exposed brick, but very well done.  They also have snacks available and offer you water, which was very hospitable.  My wedding was on a Friday and the salon was really busy in the morning, but we had enough people booked to get all 7 of us out in 2 hours, including hair AND makeup!  The only thing was that one of the bridesmaids was in a separate room so we didn't really get to see her while she was getting ready.

Indeed there are times when one CAN judge a book by its cover and that certainly applies to Victoria's Salon.  The decor sets the tone for what is to follow i.e. warmth, competence, tranquility, attention to detail and all that one could desire when attending to hair needs and other beauty services.  Victoria is my stylist and the care she takes in listening is beyond anything I've experienced in a stylist.  She is never in a hurry and is a perfectionist--even knowing what I want when I can't articulate it very well.  Not only Victoria but her entire staff makes one feel at home and happy to see you.  Yes, this salon is "as good as it gets!"

I have been going to Monica at Victoria's for over 12 years.  Everyone in this salon is there because #1 They are experts at what they do and #2 They love what they do and they are invested in their clients overall satisfaction with their hair.  You just can't put a price tag on that.  I tried several of the other salon's in Pleasanton prior to ending up at Victoria's and I will never leave. These girls rock! :) More...

Love Victoria and all her stylists!  A very professional and fun place to get not only your hair done, but other beauty treatments as well.  Numerous times I have been told by a stranger that they like my hair and then asked "where do you get it done?" and I don't hesitate to tell them about Victoria and her salon.  When your stylist becomes your friend....it doesn't get any better than this.

Victoria Salon has to be the best salon in the city of Plesanton. The atmosphere is absolutely charming with a cute fountain in the middle of the salon that just makes it so relaxing as you wait for your appointment. As you walk in and check in, the ladies that work there will ask you if you would like something to drink and ensure you are taken care of while you wait. They have great little snacks, wine and wonderful jewelry if you have spare time to shop for a gift. I highly recommend this place to anyone of any age, this salon rocks. More...

I have followed Victoria throughout her career, at several salons, before she opened her beautiful place in Pleasanton. You absolutely can not go wrong here. Many of the stylist have personally trained with Victoria before they are given their own clients. Victoria is an awesome mentor, and she has a following of clients that all love her! Each one of her stylist are excellent at what they do! I never hesitate to recommend Victoria's to anyone looking for a new place to get their hair done. Try it! You will not be disappointed!

I've gone to Victoria's Salon many times to straighten my super curly frizzy hair and to color those pesky grays that are starting to sneak in.  I've always been extremely happy with the results.  My primary stylist has been Nikki? or Natalie (sorry bad w. names) - the receptionist hooks me up with the right person when I call for an appointment. :-)Everyone there seems great though, even one of the trainees stepped in once to help out on a busy day and did an awesome job with my hair.  The atmosphere is upscale and relaxing and exactly what you want when you are treating yourself.The only reason I don't go more often and reserved the 5 star rating is it's a little pricey for my budget so it is more of my "special occasion" hair salon.

I always look forward to getting my hair done with Raschell, she is absolutely amazing at hair. I don't come in nearly as much as I should but it's hard when your chasing a 6 year old around :) She always listens to my want's and then translates it into a gorgeous hair style. Sometime my ideas are a little scattered but raschell always pulls off exactly what I want. From the moment I walk into the salon  to the moment I leave I am completely taken care of. This salon is always clean and you never see anyone just sitting around doing nothing. Even if you don't live around here should seriously give this place a try, It's AWESOME! More...

I've been getting my hair done by Nikki Pepper for about two years now. She took me from dark to light and then back to somewhere in between. She is very up to date on the latest styles and techniques, and has great vision. She always produces what I want even though I am not always the greatest at explaining. She can do anything from funky hair to business professional (I've had it all). I highly recommend her! More...

I have been going to Victoria's Salon for about 12 years, and I am never disappointed. While pricier than other salons in the area, Victoria's salon offers a relaxing experience in a very cute downtown location. I I usually have to book appointments last minute, so I don't have a usual stylist (just kind of whoever is available), but I have always been happy with the cut, color and style of my hair when I leave. I feel comfortable letting the stylists make judgement calls on color and cut, and know that I will leave happy. The stylists also chat which is nice, because hair appointments can take a while and there is nothing worse than sitting quietly in a chair for a couple of hours. The stylists that I have had offer me great information on how to keep my hair healthy, and really go the extra mile to ensure that you leave looking your best. Only minor irritation- You can't tip your stylist on the credit card receipt, so make sure you bring cash or a check to make out personally to them in order to avoid an embarrassing situation.

Let me start off by saying that Monica is a miracle worker! I was referred to her by a friend and thank goodness!! After a disastrous colouring at another bay area salon (which will remain nameless..) that left cheetah spots (yes, spots) in my poor hair, and a cut that made cousin It look stylish, I went to see Monica in need of some serious TLC. She was friendly, professional, and confident. A couple hours later I walked out with a lovely, natural colouring and a brilliant hair cut, feeling at least 10 times better than when I had walked in. I can't recommend her enough!! She definitely has a life-long customer :) More...

The stylists are friendly and most importantly, good at what they do. I've gone to Victoria's salon for various services over the years and always had a great experience, whether it be with hair or makeup so I was a little surprised by Kim C's bad experience. Being 13 at the time of her updo and makeup incident, her daughter may have been ignorant to the fact that no matter how much makeup you are asking them to put on, it is a salon treatment and makeup lesson you are purchasing. Regardless of the "look" you are going for, from the most natural bohemian salt-of-the-earth look to drag queen chic, you are paying a professional for their services and expertise. Jessica, the esthetician, has been waxing my eyebrows for years and done a great job every time.  She always tests the wax before application so I wonder if the daughter happened to be allergic to the wax and didn't know it or alert Jessica to any allergies she may have.  Jessica even did my wedding makeup a few years back.  I requested a more natural look with staying power as the application would have to last nearly all day. I mentioned my skin tends to be sensitive so she picked out the most hypo-allergenic products and tested a few looks on me before the big day. I don't know how she did it but she made it look natural without the cakiness and the makeup lasted all day with only minor touch-ups to the lipgloss.  She must have a magic wand in her tools somewhere because she made me look better than Jesus did!

If you are looking for a great esthetician you have to go to Victoria's and see Jessica. I have been having trouble with my face and back for years and have went to many dermatologists and never seen a change. I started to go to Jessica and seen a change after my first visit.  She is very knowledgeable about skin care/ make-up and takes the time to understand your skin type before applying product. Not only can she do wonders for your skin she can also shape your eyebrows better than you've ever had them done. I received many compliments after getting my eyebrows done by her. After reading some of the reviews posted about Victoria's Kim C's stood out the most.  I can't come to realize how wax would be that hot to take skin off and her daughter sat through the entire thing for both brows and didn't say a word.  Sounds like maybe an allergic reaction which would not be anyone's fault if it wasn't specified she had an allergy. Back to what's important, if you want clear skin and eyebrows that match and are fierce go see Jessica AKA Magic Hands at Victoria's. More...

I really enjoyed my first visit to Victoria's Salon yesterday. My hair stylist is Lindsey and the sweet girl that washes my hair and massages my scalp is Ashley! They were the best team!Lindsey was there to bring me back immediately and my experience lasted over 3 hours! I enjoyed every pampering moment to the fullest!My cut, full highlight, wash, and style was only $165!!! For 3 hours and 2 amazing women, that is amazing!Lindsey educated me on how to properly take care of my hair with a huge round brush (not $45!) and high quality shampoo and conditioner to help with longevity purposes!Thank you Lois Cox for referring me to Victoria's!

After switching from another local salon, I have found heaven.  This is a very professional establishment that caters to its customers.  They all consistently listen to the customer, work through the processing, cutting and styling, keeping clear about what is being done, and deliver fabulous styles!  They also work diligently to please you.  If something is not quite right they do whatever is necessary to make it right.  I have tried numerous stylists and they are ALL GOOD.  Well trained and professional.  A pleasure to do business with!

Victoria's is top notch! I stumbled upon the Salon 3 years ago when I moved back to Pleasanton from San Francisco. I was a Maiden Lane Salon "city girl" and figured I would never find anything like it in the East Bay let alone Pleasanton...WRONG. This place is decked to the Nines from entrance to exit, products to primping, owner to stylists. I am crazynlove with the Vibe. Rachel is one of the best on the planet. Not only is she gifted as a stylist and colorist but a truly charismatic and warm person. It is like being out to lunch with a dear friend when I go to get glammed up. Beyond Rachel, I had Frank as a fill in when she was out and he was off the charts as well. All the girls (and guy) are trendy as well as effortlessly classy in technique and style. I have never seen anyone walk out with out utter fabulously terrific locks and color or make-up and nails. I urge all to try the deep massage and conditioning treatment in the private room it rocks. I tried another local salon twice in the last few months at the pleading urgency of a close friend and I was MISERABLE. There is no one like Rachel or Victoria's Salon for anyone who desires 5 Star Service. Yep, this is as good as it gets in the East Bay. Kudo's to the owner she nailed it from A-Z! More...

I have been going to Victoria's Salon for about a year now and I really like it.  Lindsy is wonderful, she takes her time, gets the color and cut just right.  She styles my hair differently each time, and I leave feeling and looking great. Rachel is also very good.  Jessica, the esthetician, gave me a complimentary color analysis and makeup make over...no pressure to buy and she spent a good hour with me, reviewing different products for my skin type.  The stylists are all very friendly and work well together.  They offer suggestions, but I never feel pressure to have treatments or purchase products.  Just helpful advice--what I'd expect from a full-service salon.Victoria's Salon's pricing is comparable to other high-end salons in the area.  They post their prices in their brochure.  I stopped in and took a brochure before I made an appointment, so I new what to expect.  Oh, and lovely waiting lounge with pastries, coffee, juices and jewelry to look at and try on while waiting for services.

I've been getting my hair done by Desire since I went to Victoria's Salon for my wedding. They did an AMAZING job with me and my wedding party...the hair and makeup looked amazing and lasted all night! Ever since, I get my hair cut and highlighted on a regular basis. It's not too much more expensive than other nice places and I'm always confident it will come out looking nice. It's a beautiful building with trendy stylists. I would definitely suggest coming here for hair/makeup/waxing needs! More...

Changing to Victoria's Salon has proved to be the best experience of my life!  I met a girl with a great cut and gorgeous color.  She told me she went to a stylist named Rachel at Victoria's.  I made my first appointment last year and have never gone anywhere else.  Rachel is the best colorist I have ever been to.  I have seen a few of her other clients and they look great. I have even referred some of my friends and they all agree.  We are so happy with her bubbly personality and her attention to detail.  She really listens to what you want and delivers. Beware when making an appointment to ask for RACHEL, there is another stylist with a similar name, who I have accidentally been booked with. As a regular client I have seen all the stylist's work and I am confident in saying that Victoria only hires the best!! More...

I'm new to the area and was looking for a good pedicure. A friend recommended Victoria's Salon, and I wasn't disappointed. Thanh is a wonderful manicurist -- warm, friendly, and very talented at what she does. She just moved into a new room at the salon, and I was her first client in the new space. I found it warm, inviting, and relaxing, which added to the pampered effect of the pedicure. I like that Thanh doesn't use the typical pedicure chair with basin but rather uses an individual bowl to soak your feet. Then she moves you to the most comfortable reclining chair I've ever experienced to complete the pedicure. I can't remember the last time I was so relaxed.As another reviewer pointed out, the nail services aren't inexpensive. However, you get what you pay for, and I felt I got my money's worth. I'll definitely go back. More...

I have been going to Victoria's salon for almost 10 years now and I just love this place. I walk in and I am known by name and greeted with my favorite beverage. I usually take advantage of the complimentary mimosa or red wine. :) the salon has this great s*x n the city vibe to it and most importantly? I would be a mess without them! Victoria is a perfectionist and expects high standards from her employees. Everyone that works at this salon is top notch! You will not be sorry? check it out. More...

Oh my!!!  Can I say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place !!!!  SERIOUSLY TALKING ABOUT A 3+HOUR MANI/PEDI EXPERIENCE!!!!  Just as a heads up, this is not the place you go to if you're on the way to some place and you just need a "walk-in" service.  You will need to make a reservation!  You heard right ladies...a R-E-S-E-R-V-A-T-I-O-N.  Don't be thrown off by that though.  It's sooooooooo worth it.  I was able to get in the day after I called.  The woman who I met with introduced me to ONE ROOM that had one nail station and one pedi chair.  I could have died and gone to heaven at this place.  I had my feet soaking in a bowl with glass beads and aromatherapy while I got the most amazing mani...we're talking ORGASMIC!  The entire time, she had Diana Krall playing melodically in the background, while actually having a conversation with me.  It was an intimate, non-rushed experience that will have me coming back for more.  And if that's not enough to sell you, the pedi chair was a leaned back ergonomic, with a faux fur throw to lay on.  I almost fell asleep in that chair after the coup de gras of all pedis.  The nail tech was hilarious to talk to, as she gave me her reasons for not wanting to work in what she called a "quick in & out nail farm"...you know those places ladies, as we settle for them all the time.  Now, since we know this is a 3+hour experience, this isn't your typical $50 bill.  My bill plus tip was about $80.  This is a pampering spa and not a maintenance place.  But, truly, wouldn't you pay that small price bump for the most amazing treatment your hands and feet could imagine!?
