"I have tried so many different places in Berkeley to get the perfect bangs for my thin Asian hair, and no one gets it right except Ja. I've gotten my hair cut here three times now, and each time Ja follows my preferences exactly. My hair doesn't do anything but lie there, so Ja gives me a low maintenance cut that still looks cute...for $25. You can't beat that!
"Also, each time I have been here, I've run into white people who are satisfied with their haircuts too (repeat customers), so I'd even recommend this to my friends who don't suffer from limp Asian hair syndrome."

- Kim L., Berkeley

"I've been coming here the last 2-3 years and have NEVER left disappointed. Ja is great and highly experienced in what she does. My whole life I've had bad hairstylists who thought thinning out/layering my curly poofy hair was the best solution to "tame" it...THEY WERE WRONG! When I told her I needed to thin my hair out more on my first visit, Ja told me that was not the way to go and that my hair needed weight in order to have curls instead of frizz. Ever since then I've only trusted her to cut my hair.
"I honestly don't know what I'll do if I leave Berkeley! I think $25-$30 is absolutely the best deal you can get in Berkeley for the level of professionalism and quality that Shear Perfection provides. I've already referred 3 of my friends, they've all loved their haircuts, AND have continued going back since being introduced."
- Crissy C., Berkeley

"Shear perfection rocks!  Ja has been cutting my hair since I left UC Berkeley - I still drive from SF to get there. Great to find someone who can give my Anglo hair a great fresh look consistently."
- Scott Y., San Francisco

"Ja is the best.  Does a beautiful, professional job at very reasonable rates.  Provides free parking in the garage across the street.  Will fit you in whenever the need arises.  I am an architect, and my appearance is an essential part of how people judge my esthetics.  Ja has never disappointed."
- Charles K., Berkeley

"I've been a regular customer of Shear Perfection for about 30 years, ever since I was a student at UC Berkeley.  I've been very happy with the quality of the haircuts provided by Ja, and she is always friendly and interesting to talk to.  We've gotten to know each other pretty well over the years.
"I'm a blue eyed blonde Caucasian man, and Ja's haircuts always leave me looking and feeling a bit younger, which is great.  I moved away from the East Bay area several years ago (first to Mountain View, now in San Jose).  Even though I'm far away now, I still go back to Shear Perfection because I enjoy interacting with Ja and the haircut can't be beat!"

- Reed W., San Jose

"I'm an honest person so I'll go ahead and let the world in on the best damned hair salon around.  However, be forewarned that if I have to wait 2 weeks to book an appointment in the future I'll be kneecapping people with a tire iron as they exit the salon.  It's my salon so back off!

"Over the years I've dragged all of my boyfriends in and they've gotten fabu cuts as well.  This is especially impressive since they've run the gamut of having super straight hair to super curly locks.

"I always leave feeling like a model. Ja is a rockstar with a loyal clientele that's stuck with her over the years."
