Salon DeCota Reviews


I love you Evet!!!!!
I have a ton of hair that is extremely thick and Evet knows just how to cut it. I have consistently had amazing cuts from her.  She absolutely knows hair and exactly what to do and what your limits are. I can't stand when you bring a pic in to a place and they say "Sure,I can do that"...and then you look like an idiot. Evet will give you her professional opinion of how it might turnout and may recommend an alternative. But you will always walk out with amazing hair!!!

You know that feeling you get when you walk out of a salon feeling like you are in a L'Oreal hair commercial? (all eyes on you, kinda thing).... you will get that with Summer at Salon DeCota.  She will have you feeling your best with the cut and style she gives you. I still remember when I showed her a picture of Kristen Cavallary from Laguna Beach back in '05 and she gave me that exact cut. I'm not kidding when I say people actually said I looked like her after that! She gave me the knowledge on what products to use and how to style my hair to keep it salon-perfect.  g.r.  santa barbara


I have been going to this salon for years, and Alicia is amazing!!! I just recently decided to make a drastic change with my hair and I showed Alicia a few pictures so she could see what I was wanting, and she nailed it!  I trust her to see my vision and when I left I was in love with my new style and felt like a million bucks. 
Alicia is very detailed, talented and an amazing stylist. 
Did I say I love my new look? : ) Thank you Alicia, you rock!!!

I love this salon! They deliver great style without the pretentiousness that so many salons seem to have. Evet is an excellent stylist as well as salon owner. She uses a safe, non-toxic product on my hair to keep my hair gorgeous & my health in tact! I love coming here for the services as well as the fun & friendly environment.  emily h.  san rafael


The most stressful part of any move is finding a new hairdresser. Especially, when your previous hairdresser knew your locks like the back of his hand. 
But then I found Maryclare. She is a true artist who really listens to what you want and has a great eye. She is able to create modern looks that maintain great sophistication. What's even better is that they are easy to style and grow out perfectly.  I'd recommend this professional salon and especially Maryclare to anyone looking for a reasonable, fashion-forward look in the North Bay!

Salon DeCota did our wedding in October and they were amazing! I would highly recommend any of the stylists who worked on me or my girls. The hair and makeup was excellent and the service was just as good. Thanks for everything, Evet!  zoe b. boise


I received a great cut from Tina at Salon DeCota. I had never had a cut by her, or anyone at the salon, but when I called, she had an open appointment. She listened to what I wanted, asked good questions and then got right down to washing and cutting my hair. She also did touchups after it was dried to make sure it was perfect. I have very wavy hair, so I really appreciated this as my hair does not lay perfectly flat/straight even after being styled. I waited 2 weeks to write this review because I wanted to make sure the cut was really wearable. My hair is extremely manageable and I've gotten tons of compliments! I'll definitely go back to Tina in the future and have already told my sister about her!     claire a. austin



Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel.  If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.

The Hairdresser is...

It is my considered opinion that the hairdresser is the most influential person in any community.  When the public goes to a hairdresser, something happens to them  They feel safe, they relax.  The hairdresser knows what their skin is like under the makeup; they know their age; they don't have to keep up any kind of pretense.  People tell a hairdresser things they wouldn't dare confess to a priest and they are open about matters they try to conceal from a doctor.  When people place their secret lives in the hairdresser's hands, the hairdresser gains an authority few other people attain.  i have heard hairstylist quoted with complete conviction on art, literature, politics, economics, childcare and morals.  I tell you that a clever, thoughtful, ambitious hairstylist wields a power beyond the comprehension of most people...

If you get hold of a head of hair on somebody you've never seen before, cut beautiful shapes, cut beautiful architectural angles and she walks out looking so different-  I think that's masterful.

Today I choose life.  Every morning when I wake up, I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain...  To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices- today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

Robin Williams

It is not the critic who counts;  not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;  who strives valiantly;  who errs, who comes up short again and again, because ther is no effort without error or shortcoming;  but who does actually strive to do the deeds;  who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;  who spends himself in a worthy cause.  Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
