 I just filled out the new client questionnaire, when will I hear from someone?

questions #1


Why do you want to know so much about my hair in order to book an appointment?

questions #2


Receiving as much information about your hair helps the stylist better understand whats going on. It helps us so as soon as you sit down in our chair so we can move through a consultation faster in order to better help you with your hair needs. It also helps us understand the history of your hair and what it has been through.

Ive used box color on my hair, can you still lighten it?

questions #3


MAYBE. A lot can go wrong with lightening hair with box color on it due to the chemicals inside. That’s why we need all clients to be honest about what has been on their hair so we don’t run into any problems in the middle of your service.

"Being in Juli’s chair is an automatic confident booster. She has always knows exactly whats going to look good on you. It’s a plus the salon is so beautiful and comfortable to spend your time there. I love being able to have a drink while I’m being pampered. The staff at Desert Strands is also so friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for a stylist, I would highly recommend Desert Strands!"


"Siera and her team are amazing! Everyone is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in. Siera is super knowledgeable and she’s been able to get my hair to go from being unhealthy and shoulder length to hair that is now long, soft, and healthy. She really cares about the health of your hair, but is still able to give you the hair of your dreams!"


"Desert Strands has a vibe that not many salons in Reno offer. The salon has a very luxury look and feel to it, which I thoroughly enjoy. As soon as I get checked in Im offered a drink from many options to choose from or an array of snacks. Each and every stylist is so sweet and Im so happy I have found this salon in the Reno area. Do yourself a favor and book an appointment here. You wont regret it."

She did such an amazing job and always continues to do beautiful work. "

She recently installed extensions on me and I truly feel the most confident I ever have. "
