I've been going to Siren for 5 years, and I have loved every haircut. My go-to stylist is Rosalinda, who's a genius with long wavy hair. She's great at remembering details of the last haircut (even if I take longer than usual to come back because of a crazy busy life). My hair feels healthy, my cuts are always flattering, and the massages are to-die-for!
