Here is what they are saying about Gabriella:

“I can’t say enough about Gabriella at Faust downtown. She knows what she’s doing, she’s friendly, patient and turned my overgrown hair in to something beautiful. She and Sebastian are both very friendly and pleasant to be around. Faust downtown is a great’s calm and relaxing and also has a lot of opportunity for people-watching while your color sets. 🙂
I’m glad I found this place and I will continue to use it as my hair-home!” Susan F.

“Gabriella was amazing in helping me get the look I wanted. She was very understanding and personable. Also great prices for wonderful quality work!” Heather

“I’ve been having my haircut by Gabriella since I moved to Santa Cruz 2 years ago. She was recommended to me to have my hair and makeup done for my wedding and she did an amazing job. From then I have stuck with her. She is warm, caring and friendly and is a total pro. I’ve mostly been getting trims while trying to grow my hair but finally let her have some fun and went for a shorter a-line cut. I LOVE it and so does everyone else. Thank you Gabriella, you rock!”

“Hadn’t had a haircut in years, and desperately needed one. Gabriella was very nice and helpful, she did well regarding seeing what I wanted while also giving me advice on what would be best for my hair type. She does a great job of giving the “pampering” experience.” Sarah

“Gabriella did a great job cutting my hair. She was really easy to talk to and took her time cutting my hair, making sure it was perfect. “ Alexa
