One of my oldest dearest friends Monica started working here after moving to Washington state. i have yet to visit the salon (because i live in California), but i can recommend her work to anyone who wants their nails done. She was the only one who did my nails years ago when i saw her on a regular basis. I trust her completely and she does excellent work! –Tania B.
Ummm all I have to say is AMAZING!!!! I’ve been driving all the way from Bellevue to Maple Valley (40 mins) for the past 2 years to go see Tessany at Chocolates Cherries and Blondes. She is the best of the best. Not only do I love my hair and feel beautiful when I leave, but she is so sweet and fun to chat with during my processing time.
Highly recommended!!!! –Tamara A.
I have balked at getting my hair professionally colored for years…always resorting to ‘the box.’ BUT I got a living social deal to try a cut/partial foil/deep conditioning treatment at Chocolate, Cherries and Blondes for half price, so I treated myself. When I bought it, I didn’t realize it was 30 miles away from my home in Tacoma, so I figured it would be a one time thing. WRONG! I fell in love with my stylist Nikkia, with the salon, and with my hair. This is the first place I’ve ever gone for a haircut where I can go home and make my hair look as good as Nikkia did–she gave me helpful hints as she went along to show me how to re-create the look from home. She did not pressure me to buy any product, in fact when I called back to find out what she had used on my hair to make it so soft, she told me what it was and where I could get it closer to home…knowing I live 30 miles away.
I now constantly get compliments on my hair, not only from people who know what my hair USED to look like, but from strangers who want to know where I got my highlights and cut done. I don’t dread looking in the mirror and looking for gray hairs coming in, Kia masterfully has foiled my hair so that they are hidden until the next time I see her. I happily drive the 30 miles every 8 weeks, and happily pay full price, to get my hair done with Kia. It’s a treat to hang out at the salon, there is always fun conversation, and everyone there is down to earth and welcoming. –Jenni B.
These ladies are great! Every time my wife or I go in, its like a breath of fresh air! The vibe is happy and vibrant. You definitely feel welcomed to be there.
Liz is an amazing massage therapist! Can’t say enough positive things about her knowledge and abilities to help heal. She takes it seriously and you can tell her heart is into it.
My wife enjoys getting her hair done, and typically by a different stylist each time. She’s satisfied each and every time. The proof is in our experiences and we will continue to return! –Big S.
