Make An Appointment with Dina

I have wanted to do hair since I was fifteen years old. I now have over 20 years of experience and feel very fortunate to do exactly what I love. I am the co-owner of Salon Kismet and I currently work behind the chair 5 days a week. I specialize in blondes, color corrections, and special occasion hair. I have years of extended education and I'm always interested in the newest cutting edge techniques in color and cutting. I grew up in the neighborhood and even went to Madison Schools. I am also a third generation native. So whether you live right around the corner or you travel from Surprise, I will do my best to make your experience an awesome one.

Make An Appointment with Erin

My name is Erin, and my passion is hair. I am an Arizona native, and have spent the last 20 years blessed to be given hands that create, and bring out the beauty in people by doing hair. At the young age of 21, I was sent to New York by my long time mentor, and boss Sal Calvano as a future colorist of America. I have been certified at the Vidal Sassoon Academy for classic hair cutting, spent time traveling to New York and Chicago assisting and working with the most amazing people. I have been blessed to travel with people I adore and learn from the best. The girls at Salon Kismet are truly amazing. My experiences are still unfolding and I am always evolving and learning. I am inspired by the world around me; nature is my source of reference as to how I approach hair color and I have an organic and unique approach to cutting and styling, which allows a style that looks good long after you leave the salon. I love to create and from a very young age, I wanted to be an artist. I spent many years in a community called “Toastmasters” developing my communication and listening skills, and since more than 60% of a great cut and style and color is communication, once again I am fortunate to have all this amazing experience. I am here for you and will always do my best the first time, every time.

Make An Appointment with Fern

As a hairsylist in the valley for over 32 years, I've enjoyed the diversity of a clientel thats spans not only generations, but every type of hair imaginable. My speciality is cutting. I have not met a head of hair that will not succumb to my tools and talent whether it be a razor, scissor, or clippers. I prefer haircuts that do not require a lot of styling or maintence, as most people prefere not to spend a lot of time on their hair. I prefer the haircut to do most of the work. I also am quite experienced with many different color techniques; most of all my colors dont fade, cover 100% grey and are gentle and conditioning on the hair. I do schedule my own appointments, My number is 602.264.4759
