A true Professional!

"When I moved to Williamstown four years ago I was worried about finding a good hair stylist. Karen was referred to me by a friend. Karen is an accomplished colorist, stylist and knows what works best for my hair. Karen has many years of experience, and is dedicated to keeping her skills updated. We are lucky to have her in Williamstown!"

She has such great energy and is extremely talented. I can't recommend her enough!"

Such a Gem!

"Karen is a fabulous stylist and a wonderful person. I was out of town for two years, and when I came back I rushed to her salon, as I had so missed her special touch. She “gets” each individual’s hair and color—what a treasure!"

Love How You Look And Feel!

"Karen Brown makes me feel like I am the most important person in the world whenever I'm there. I never feel rushed or like what I want is secondary to the schedule of the salon. And of course, Karen is amazing with hair coloring! The color combinations that she comes up with are creative, striking and always flattering! In other words, I love how I feel while I'm there and I love how I feel when I walk out."

Great Guidance

"Karen has been my hairdresser for nearly ten years. In that time she has guided me through many changes in style and color. She always listens carefully to what her clients want, asks questions, and offers guidance as to what is achievable. She is a careful and observant stylist, and a gifted colorist. She took me from mousy brunette through several stages of blond, and finally to my present natural grey, all without trauma or startling change. I recommend Karen to anyone who asks!!"


–Jane Pickard

Superb Color Correction!

"Karen is an artist who can and does bring out the absolute best look for you. She is a true professional with a beautiful spirit that makes you always feel like you are the most important person in the room. I first went to Karen on a friend's recommendation after I had a terrible experience getting my hair colored. My hair was literally ruined and I was beside myself with embarrassment and worry. Karen squeezed me in after my friend told her of my problem. Karen reassured me and made me feel completely relaxed in her salon. She worked on my hair for 3 hours totally committed to correcting the previous salon's work. I walked out of her salon with a completely new look that I loved and have continued with for the past three years. I completely recommend and encourage anyone who is looking to take their look to the next level in a very warm, safe atmosphere to book an appointment with Karen as soon as possible."
