Carol is fantastic. I'm fairly picky when it comes to my hair - and I had a HORRIBLE haircut when I first moved to the city. Carol fixed it and suggested what was best for me in order to achieve the look I wanted. She's always honest and if you follow her advice, you will absolutely be pleased!
The salon is very cute and clean. The products they use are high-end (they have Bumble & Bumble which I love). Overall, fab place to get your hair done!
Nice plac to get pampered. The place was very cozy and relaxing. I like the massage where they put some kind of smooth stones from your nape all the way down to your lower back while greeting massaged from the sides of the head.
Have to go!.
A friedn brought me there and I thought it was so cool......
next time I´m there I think I am going to take more time to test some other treatments.....
PRESTON at ACME Head and Body Salon. When it comes to hair and beauty, PRESTON at Acme is the perfectly balanced professional. He is extremely knowledgeable, but not at all pushy; is a good listener, but will also offer his opinion if asked; he is warm and kind, but also has a silly/sassy side as well; he just seems to be a lovely all around person. PRESTON listened to my concerns/desires/etc.. about my hair (coming off a horrible experience at another salon), did his thing, and I left an hour and a half later feeling like a new person. And it didn't stop there - I have been loving my new cut for 2 months now. I'm not overly dramatic about my hair - I've had a couple sub par cuts in my day and whatever, it grows back, but when you do have a great cut it can transform your whole attitude/ outlook. So, If you want to have a great experience with a talented professional that you can trust to share in your 'vision' give PRESTON a visit and I know you'll leave his salon happy...
Best Haircut Ever ....
I live in San Jose and just happened to stop by Acme, by chance. It is an amazing and unbelievable treat to have a hair cut with Carol Anderberg at the Acme Salon. It is the first time in a long time that a hair dresser actually did what I wanted, and not what she is used to do. I am very happy with Carol and love the Salon?s atmosphere. I highly recommend it to everyone, no matter how simple or sophisticated your taste may be. 5 ***** for Carol.
Great with color and fine hair.
I have been regularly going to Acme since it opened a few years ago. The service is fabulous, the surroundings are nice and very clean, the people are engaging and friendly. I have never had a "bad color day" after having my hair done by Dennis at the salon, not to mention he gives the best haircut I have ever had. He knows his stuff, he's fun, engaging, professional and talented, to say the least. I work in a courtroom in a Bay Area county and I was subbing for another colleague. The judge, who I know very well, put her hand over the microphone, asked me to come over to her, and said "your hair looks fabulous," then we continued on with what we were doing. If I can stop a court proceeding with my lovely locks, it makes me very confident that my hair looks as fabulous as it feels.
I really can't say enough great things about Dennis, the salon, and all the people that work there. If you don't give it a try, I can only hope that you never have a bad salon day again. If you do give it a try, I can almost guarantee you will never have a bad salon day again. At least that has been my experience and that of my friends. Pick up the phone!
Wonderful salon. Prestin is awesome.
I've been living in the area for only a few months (a Washington DC transplant) and dreaded to undergo the search for a new salon but I found exactly what I was looking for with Acme.
The location is awesome. The vibe is very chill.
Prestin cut my hair and we spent about five minutes beforehand talking about everything.
He did an *amazing* job. One of the best haircuts I've had in my entire life. The entire visit was fun because he's a wonderful person to talk to.
Prestin has a new client now.
A marvelous haircut for only $50.
Yeah. I'm happy.
Best haircut of my life!.
"I moved here from Los Angeles (land of great hair) to have my hair ruined by inept stylists over and over. After 1.5 years of growing out the damage (flying back to LA for the repair jobs) it was clear I needed to try another local out.
Today I met Dennis and he gave me the best haircut of my life! I broke away from the mirror to sign up on citysearch just to sing his praises. I have very thick and wavy hair that Dennis magically thinned into a hip super-cool new do. He seemed to have ESP and knew what I wanted without me struggling to articulate it or being forced to pick out a "look" out of a stupid hair book.
The salon is retro 50's inspired with a great vibe. No pretenses...just great energy. Dennis has made me the happiest girl in the Bay!"
Talented hair stylist. Dennis has been styling my hair for over 10 years and I drive from San Jose just for him to do my hair. The color is great and he doesn't fix the same style repeatedly. He gets really excited about creating a new look. He's also a great cook and will share recipes.
Bravo to Acme!. My only hesitation in writing a review of Acme is that I won't be able to get an appointment! This is a wonderful, down to earth salon with talented hair dressers that have great skills. The hair products are luxurious as is the service and without the overtly hipster vibe that some hair salons embrace. Don't get me wrong: Acme is absolutely HIP, but it is not a scene. If you want her hair cut and/or colored RIGHT (and who doesn't?) go to Acme. Just please let me still be able to get an appointment!
