LV Hair in Scott’s Valley is Santa Cruz Mountains hidden gem!  Leslie and her amazing team saved my hair! My hair felt like straw after having two babies. I came in for a consultation, she gave me a Keratin treatment~airbrush hair color, and my hair came back to LIFE! Smooth, silky and full!  Thank you so much ladies.

I have been coming to Leslie for more than 15 years. When I first came, my hair was in poor condition—over bleached and under-nourished. Now when I look in the mirror, I just say “Thank you Leslie!” She is continuously researching the best hair products. Her crew works so well together.  When they wash my hair, I feel like I’ve gone to heaven. I always feel so taken care of. What I get from coming here that I did not expect was so many natural hair product choices and increased self-esteem. I feel better because I look better.

Excellent service. They were able to squeeze me in right before the holidays for a cut and brow wax. Even styled my hair just the way I like before leaving. Anytime I’m in the area I’ll for sure be coming back for anything I need.

    review rating 5  First, a bit of history....I came to Leslie (then, at Platinum Lounge) many years ago, when years of covering gray by using henna had ruined my hair. I used to think henna, a natural plant, would treat my hair and take better care of it than coloring it, but, boy, was I wrong. However, Leslie undertook the task of repairing and nourishing my straw-like hair back to health, and then colored it, making it look more natural than my natural color! She saved my hair! So ever since, I've been a client of Leslie and Ashley. I followed them to Leslie's new shop, LV Hair Extensions. Last week I again felt inspired to publically share my joy: Wow, what a haircut you gave me, Leslie! You know you got a stellar haircut when a few days later, you wash it and style it yourself, and it looks like you just went to the salon. I had an event yesterday and after I washed and blew out my hair, my hair was full as could be, the sweeps were as wonderful as I could ever want them to be, the ends just tucked themselves under, And my whole head of hair had bounce and flair! I felt beautiful! As you were cutting, I wondered if you were taking too much; you know I like when it gets long, but instead, I just trusted, and Leslie, you are the master! Between Ashley's hair care, keratin treatment and coloring, and Leslie's magic scissoring, my hair has never looked better. Sincere thanks. THE BEST.
