One of My Best Haircuts ... Ever 2/9/2010

I was planning to be in Boulder for the year-end holidays and wanted to use the time to get a good cut and some highlights to mask the encroaching gray. Based on the reviews on this site, I made an appointment with Karal and you were all spot on. She is a genius. My hair is long, thick and wavy and she instantly understood the challenges and benefits of living with my kind of hair. She gave me a fabulous cut that enabled me to wear my hair down at work for the first time in years - long layers that eliminated the bushiness and triangle-effect. The highlights are just the right shade of caramel and are placed precisely in the right spot. I love them every day, and more and more. Thanks so much, Karal, for your expertise. I'll see you next time I'm in town! Pros: Karal really knows hair Cons: That she doesn't live in Nashville more

Best Salon In Colorado 2/7/2010

I have lived on the East Coast and have been to posh salons all over Boston. When I moved to CO, I went to the top salons in Denver and Boulder. I must have tried at least 20 different salons before I found Karal. They do not compare to Sugar Hair Studio. Karal Winston is a talented hair dresser. My hair always looks amazing when she does it. She listens to you, gives you hair advice and makes you look great! I can not wait for my next appointment! Pros: Fabulous Hair Cuts, Beautiful Color, Great Service Cons: None more

Best hair salon in town! 11/16/2009

Karal is a truly talented and professional stylist. She listens to her clients, ,makes suggestions and has the uncanny ability to ask just the right questions. She seems to be able to do anything, color, long cuts, short cuts, weedding hair and extensions. I have asked for all of these things in the past year and Karal has hit the mark every time! Pros: Karal! Cons: There are drawbacks? more

Like a Life Recharge 11/14/2009

Karal makes me psyched to see how good I can look after she's done her magic. If only I could replicate it exactly on my own. No matter, her new colorful studio is like a mini-retreat, easy to get to in Boulder. Pros: Makes me feel magnetic Cons: Hair doesn't grow fast enough to visit more more

My best hair cut ever 10/29/2009

Karal has a gift to make people beautiful. I always felt like I had good hair, but never really had a good hair cut my entire life--until Karal. She takes any hair questions completely serious and professionaly. She offers tips on how to duplicate her styling techniques. I started to go grey and Karal colored my hair so perfectly that no one even noticed. The only feedback I receive now is how great my hair looks, which never happened before my entire life. The new Sugar Salon is a nice private venue, and Karal is a joy to visit. She is truely a "hair guru." Pros: Karal is Fantastic Cons: I am willing to commute to Boulder to have great hair more

The ONLY place to go for extentions! 10/5/2009

OMG i love my hair!!! Karal's done my extentions twice now and i absolutely LOVE them. I've been growing out a short a-line bob and Karal's amazing talent at extentions has made it painless and totally natural looking... no one can tell it's not all mine. I will always come back to Karal Pros: Karal's pretty too more

Absolutely the best with extensions!! 9/25/2008

My 17-yr-old has been saving her hard-earned $ for hair extensions. As a nervous mom I researched and researched and found Karal. After our free consultation I was nervous no more. This lady knows her stuff and is passionate about extensions. She not only puts them in for clients, she also educates other stylists who want to be able to do extensions. My daughter's hair looks stunning, healthy, gorgeous -- gee, what other adjectives could I use. The color is blended beautifully and it looks totally natural. We had a question a few days after they were put in and Karal called us right away with the answer. Stop looking for someone to do your extensions -- believe me, you've found her. Karal is the absolute best. Pros: Friendly and fun staff, beautiful salon, fun to spend time there! Cons: none more

Wonderful Job 8/31/2008

I came to Karal and wanted a complete change. I went from a long, plain hairstyle to short and layered. She took her time and listened to what I had to say and designed the style around my comments. I told her that I don't spend much time on my hair and rarely blow-dry it. How many short hairstyles look good without being styled? Mine does. Pros: Very friendly staff more

She is not a stylist, she is a tranformationist!!! 5/14/2008

OMG - what this woman can do!! I also have the very fine hair and have been unable to grow it long because it always starts splitting once it reaches my shoulders. I was just about to give up the vision of me with long flowing locks and then I found Karal. FABULOUS!!! I believe some people can learn this trade, but I feel that Karal was born with it in her genes. She goes above being able to make your hair look the way you want it to, she can make it look better than you thought it ever could. I love my hair extensions and everyone has told me that they would have never known if they hadn't seen me prior to getting them. I have had so many compliments on both the cut and the absolutely phenomenal job she did on blending my colors. Thank you Karal - you are stuck with me for life!!! Pros: One word - UNBELIEVABLE!! Cons: Can't think of any more

ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! 4/27/2008

I am probably one of the most particular and picky people about my hair. Unfortunately I don't have that gorgeous long thick "Barbie Doll" hair that I would die for. But that is ok, because I found Karal. I honestly have never been so happy with a hair dresser in my life. The thing that really stands out to me is that she is a wonderful listener, which is sooo important when you really have a vision of what do you and don't want. But even more amazing is her talent. Karal is gifted at what she does. I have never had anyone listen so well, but then also give me their honest opinion about what will work with my particular hair. I have decided after going to her twice for color and cut, that I am going to go for extensions. I now have seen her GORGEOUS extensions, and another beautiful girl that works at the salon with them as well (both done by Karal). They look just amazing, and I CANNOT WAIT to let Karal give me that long Barbie doll hair I have always wanted!!! Thanks a million Karal, you are THE BEST. :) Pros: everything from true talent, to a wonderful person to hang out with for a few hours while getting your hair done more

I Heard, That She Did Repunzle's Hair Extensions. 4/23/2008

This woman is funny, beautiful, and is absolutely STUNNING. Best of all, she is a goddess with hair, and i absolutely love her. If you want terrible botched hair, then DON'T see her, because let me WARN YOU, you will be 110% SATISFIED and GUSHING over your hair. Pros: Being amazingly gorgeous, hair extenstions, color, shape, and hair design. Cons: having too many pros. more

Boulders BEST Glamorizer.... 4/19/2008

I have the typical 'fine & thin' hair that TRUE blondes have and every blonde DIS-LIKEs. As much as I try to grow it out, it still looks thin and fine, but also thin, fine and stringy! During my consultation with Karal as to what my options are, we found the PERFECT match to my hair colors, which are VERY contrasting and edgy. After a quick lesson as to styling and caring for my extensions, I can tell you that, I will NEVER be without them !!! SERIOUSLY!!! Pros: SALON and staff 'right outta Hollywood' Style Cons: Location somewhat hard to reach (upstairs above Starbucks) more

A trip to Karal is like winning the "hair lottery"! 4/16/2008

Karal is by far the best stylist I have ever met. She literally took me from soccer mom, to VS supermodel. It's unbelievable! When I walk into a room people stop and stare. People come up to me on a weekly basis and tell me how beautiful my hair is. When I tell them it's hair extensions they can't believe it because it is completely natural looking. Karal is organized, professional and charming. I wouldn't dream of letting anyone but her do my extensions and I will never go back to having thin, short hair again! I'm hooked! I've never felt better about myself. Thank you Karal! Pros: Finding talent like this in Colorado Cons: none more

It'll Change Your Life! 4/12/2008

My hair was really thin before getting the extensions, and now it looks thick and natural. The color matches perfectly to my real hair and I've gotten many complements about it already. Karal was really encouraging and precise about her work. She took the time to make sure each and every piece looked as good as it possibly could. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has thin or short hair or just wants a change in their style! Pros: All of the employees are really nice and excited about their work more

Best EVER 4/9/2008

Karal is the best. She gave me the best hair color & cut that I have had in years. I have very thick, long blonde hair and it takes someone with the right skills, attention to detail and ability to truly listen to what you want to create the hair you want - and Karal is that person! I moved to Colorado less than 4 years ago and it's taken me this long to find someone I am truly committed to. Karal is GREAT at what she does because she LOVES what she does...and it shows. I told her I wanted her to make me look and feel beautiful and sassy and she truly made it happen. I found Karal on City Search and I'm simply thrilled that it worked out. If you are looking for someone with skills, style and passion for her craft - then go to Karal. Thank you Karal! I'll see you in a few months! Fix Hair Salon ROCKS! Pros: Free Parking, Great Ambience, Excellent Service Cons: Be prepared to get what you pay for - it's worth every penny! more

Amazing 3/17/2008

Karal did my hair extensions about 4 months ago and they look amazing! Honestly, I have never looked better, it was a complete transformation. I highly suggest anyone thinking about hair extensions go to see Karal. Not only is Karal extremely knowledgeable about hair extensions (it clearly shows in ALL her work) but she is also very kind and will have you cracking up the whole time you are there. I can't stress enough, if you are thinking about hair extensions go to Karal!!!!!!! Thank you Karal! more

BEST extension work and more 3/17/2008

I am a hairstylist who works with Karal at Fix hair salon in boulder, and i have to say, all of the things i have seen her do have been incredible. I became a hairstylist to improve the industry by perfecting hair and make people feel good about themselves, i thought i was on a good roll, and then there was Karal. (lol) client has never left her chair unhappy and i hope to be half as good as her someday!!! She has been doing hair for ten years and she has perfected all of her skills to the T. I even learn from her myself almost everyday! She is completely organized, dedicated and on top of it all right down to her presentation of herself. She always delivers way more than promised, in the most efficient, impeccable fashion and i HIGHLY reccomend her!! If you are going to spend your money you might as well get quality work and it is more than guaranteed!!! Pros: everything Cons: nothing more
