When I think of fall make-up, my mind goes to dark, warm colors. Some people find dark colors intimidating. The secret is to keep it balanced. Here’s … [Read More] about Fall Make-up Trends

What our clients are saying…
I had recently had a kidney stone and was looking for some kind of relief for the body soreness I was experiencing. After looking all morning and finding no availability at other places, I reached out to Mike and he managed to get me in between his other appointments within the hour! Upon arrival he was very welcoming and even got me in before my scheduled time. I went in for a 60 minute Swedish massage and after a quick consultation he began the massage, checking in to make sure it was to my liking. He even went past the 60minute time. Overall I was beyond pleased with his professionalism and left feeling so much better than when I had walked in. Would highly recommend, and I’ll definitely be back!
Christopher Tornatore is the ultimate artist of hairstyles. Five stars do not quite do justice here. Christopher’s professional skills and artistic sense are on par with the best stylists of New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Christopher utilizes a conceptual approach, where he evaluates all the components that ensure a great haircut: hair texture, face shape and features, individual preferences and prior experiences. Christopher will give you a great recommendation of your ultimate best look which will allow you to make your own best informed choices. I have read great reviews of Christopher’s work, and I had high expectations. Christopher completely exceeded my expectations. He was able to reproduce the exact versatile haircut I was looking for, which previously I was only able to get with my hair stylists on the east coast (which I have worked with for many years.) For those who value the overall experience: this elegant salon has a very relaxing atmosphere and Christopher’s studio has the best views of the Sierras. Enjoy!
JUST JAW DROPPINGLY STUNNING! Between the decor, location, and service I can’t say enough. From the moment you walk in, the ambiance fills your soul with peace and beauty. So many places in town try to accomplish this, but do not succeed. What sets this place apart from the rest is this…Haven in a true retreat that feels like it was made just for you. Each suite has it’s own unique flair that adds that personal touch from each provider. The salon offers every service and product to fit a variety of needs and desires. Everyone I met seemed to be genuinely excited to meet me and wanted to be of service. Michon was absolutely amazing and knew exactly what my unkempt hair needed to make me look like a million bucks! Without killing my pocketbook like some other places in town! I can’t wait to come back and experience more of what this beautiful place has to offer!
I have hunted for a salon on yelp since I haven’t been in one since I was a teen and I’m so glad I chose this one. It’s absolutely beautiful inside and very well-kept. Once I went inside, I just instantly knew that the quality of services had to be just as amazing as its interior design. My appointment was with kristyn Johnson and she sounded very confident with hair and knowledgable about the products she used. My hair was uneven, dry and not flowy; however, with just a couple of snips here and there, good styling from Kristyn, I’m happy to say that my hair feels absolutely amazing. She educated me on how to get the hair style I wanted and she made it look super easy. Can’t wait to try it when I get home! Definitely come to this salon if you’re looking for a go to place. I’ll be back next month to get a balayage from Kristyn and I’m sure I won’t be disappointed:)
Heidi is fantastic! I’m visiting family in the Reno area and my hair was in serious need of a highlighting update. She was a pleasure to visit with and a totally awesome stylist! My hair looks wonderful! Thank you Heidi! You’ve gained a new client! This salon is beautiful, modern, yet comfy, extremely clean, and I love the private salon rooms. Excellence is difficult to come by these days, but Haven Salon Studios is the essence of excellence in salons!
Haven is a beautiful, tranquil, luxurious salon that makes getting my hair colored a special treat. Michon Kessler has a natural talent for color and makes me feel so welcome and comfortable that I feel like we’ve been friends for years, when really we’ve only known each other a few months. I also like the peaceful, personal setting of one hair stylist per room.
A very nice salon. The hairdresser’s have separate rooms, which makes for a very relaxed, calm atmosphere. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful and Sarah is a wonderful hairdresser. I highly recommend this salon.
Haven Salon Studios is flat out awesome! The decor and finishes are stunning and like nothing else in Reno. Using the restroom here is like sitting in the most luxurious Italian spa, minus the guys speaking a foreign language. As for the services, Michon and the team are top notch. From hair color to waxing and everything in between, Haven has become home to some of Reno’s elite beautification talent. And I need all the beautifying I can get!
