David is the updo master. There is too much to say about blush and JAC hair gallery to fit into this tiny space. David, Monique and the owners made my sister's wedding day so special! The spa and salon were both very busy and there was even another wedding going on the same day but they made my sister feel like she was the most important person in the world on her day. David is the best - everyone told my sister (and all of us) how georgous her updo was and her makeup was perfect (thanks to Dolores). David, Monique and Dolores had all of us looking like models, but the best part was - they are absolutely charming and professional. I've never been treated so well in a spa or hair salon. The owners both catered to me and our family & bridesmaids, set up a table for us to bring some goodies and Dolores' adorable husband was chatting with everyone and making mimosas for all the girls. He was so sweet to my mom! We had a blast!!! David - thank you, thank you, thank you and Monique, all of the girls thank you too. Love you guys!!
great cut!. I was up for the weekend with my girlfriend having some spa treatments at blush. I loved my treatments so much that decided to try the hair salon and had a great experience. David was so nice and said that he would try to fit me in - blush changed my appts around so that I could see David and he gave me such a cute cut! I wish I loved closer to Sonoma but whenever I am here, I'll be sure to see David and get a facial!
city girl loves JAC. What can be better than dinner in the wine country after a fabulous day at the salon and spa. My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in the wine country. My girlfriends had an amazing spa day at blush the month before so we decided to give it a try. On Friday, they squeezed me in with Jane which turned out to be the best haircut I ever had. On Saturday, my boyfriend and I both did spa packages - it was the BEST! I have never had a facial like the one I received from the owner and the massages were just over the top. I will be making frequent trips to Sonoma to see these girls - we are totally hooked!
Highly skilled staff, professional. Finally, a hair salon without stylists competing and gossiping about each other. I have lived in Sonoma for 10 years and really enjoy my time at JAC. Everyone is so friendly and they have fun there talking about fun, silly things instead of "who did what to you" - boring!!! Stacey and Judy both do my hair (whoever is available because they are super busy) and I love them both. If you're tired of listening to your stylist talk endlessly about stuff you couldn't care less about - go to JAC.
Booked them for my wedding... avoid them at all costs.
I got married in Sonoma a couple weeks ago. It was a blast and I felt like a princess.
I was really pleased with my vendors-- all total pros and made the whole day go seamlessly-- with one exception. JAC Hair Gallery was a total nightmare!
Even though I had a signed contract, tried numerous times to reach them by phone, and sent confirmation emails to the owner, there were huge mix ups. To make matters worse, the owner acted in a very unprofessional manner. I'll leave out the gory details, but suffice it to say it was the only stress factor in the days leading up to my wedding. I can only conclude she figured that she had little to lose, as we were out of town customers, and we were locked into the contract.
I had to keep them on, but didn't want them touching my hair. I ended up having to book a second stylist-- who turned out to be amazing!
As far as JAC, we paid for everything, even the services we didn't use. We tipped 15% as the stylist himself did a reasonable job. Even he told us later that the owner had made a mess of it.
I didn't let them ruin my day, but don't let them interfere with yours. Stay far, far away.
UPDATE: Dolores I am not a former stylist, although I can well imagine why former employees might have ill will due to general unprofessionalism. Note that all the other "rave" reviews look contrived: the other "customers" have only reviewed this one site (or JAC's other site Blush), are way over the top and always know the owners by name. Writing your own reviews to artificially inflate ratings? Unethical and misleading!
Judy is the deal!. My friend recommended JAC Hair Gallery to me. She travels from San Francisco to get her hair cut by Jane. Her hair always looks fabulous and she told me that Judy colored her hair the last time so I booked an appt with Judy. The owners call her "the chemist" and say that is her reputation in town and they were right! I loved my color and will never go anywhere else...
Stacey rocks. I have been going to Stacey for years and now she has moved to a great new hair salon. Everyone there is so sweet and nice. I love finding all of my hair products there - Bumble& Bumble and Pureology. If you want Stacey, you better book ahead because she is very popular - my whole family goes to her.
love my hair! - 5 stars. I am a devotee to JAC. I was visiting a friend from the east bay and she told me about her stylist at JAC. She is a long time client of Stacey who was booked so I tried another stylist. I was sooooo happy with my cut and color that I'm going to travel every 6 weeks for my new favorite hair salon.
First class stylists and owners. I was in a real bind one day because my regular stylist was a no-show and I was going on a business trip. JAC's owner James is a sweetheart and asked his wife, Dolores to find a way to squeeze me into the schedule. It was the best cut and color I ever had! Like many of my friends, I was tired of my stylist raising her prices but not her expertise but felt like I didn't have much choice. Boy, was I wrong!. All of the stylists were so sweet and I saw so many great cuts and color. JAC is the real deal...
5 stars to Jane and Sarah!. My friend recommended Jane and Sarah to me after I had seen her hair looking fabulous! I don't have easy hair - thick and curly. Jane gave me the greatest hair cut that is so easy to do every day and Sarah is so sweet and did great color and hilites. Don't miss out on these two!
