Here is what they are saying about Sebastian:

“My new salon in Santa Cruz!! Emily and Sebastian just went above and beyond to make sure I LOVED my Balayage, and I am obsessed. Thank you guys. I will be back for my next treatment! They are friendly, helpful, clean, efficient, and skilled. I will recommend to friends. Couldn’t be happier!” Laura N.

“Everyday I fall more in luv with the beautiful color job Sebastian did for me. I came to him for an urgent fix it problem. They totally squeezed me in and even worked late! Sebastian and even Gabriella spent time assisting me communicate the issue clearly. What a total gem and artist. I couldn’t be more grateful and blown away by talent of blending my color so organically. Thank you!!” Kajah L.

“I have never had as great of a salon experience as I did at Faust. All of the employees were welcoming, friendly, and easy to talk to. I had a cut and balayage done by Sebastian and he BLEW ME AWAY! I came in with pictures and explained what I wanted and the outcome exceeded my expectations; he perfectly understood what I wanted and what would look best on me. I was hoping for a natural fade to golden blonde and he hit the nail on the head– it came out more natural looking than the pictures I showed him for reference by far. I will never trust anyone else with my hair now, I’m hooked for sure.”   Kennedy A.

“Sebastian is the best!  I showed him a few pictures of burgundy highlights on dark brown hair and voila!  I love my hair color!  He explained the process and costs, so I knew everything up front.  He really cares about his clients to make sure they are happy.” Debbie

“I have now been going to Faust for color and cut with Sebastian for approximately 1 year now, and continue to have a wonderful experience! Sebastian works at Faust in downtown Santa Cruz and Capitola and I have followed him in both locations. Both salons are tidy with friendly and welcoming staff and a truly relaxing atmosphere. Each time I leave the salon, I feel like a new woman. His coloring techniques are on point. He separates my hair into the tiniest layers and makes sure to to cover every single strand of gray. I continue to be pleased with how thorough and detailed he is. I have full confidence in his cuts. He always knows what looks just right for my face type. My hair feels so light and looks shiny! Thank you, Sebastian!”   Faurnoush (Follow-up Testimonial)

“I had an amazing experience at Faust in downtown Santa Cruz!  After moving from San Francisco, I was hesitant to look for another stylist.  But, Sebastian was absolutely amazing!!!  He incredibly knowledgeable about every aspect of hair care and all things beauty.  I got highlights and the color, hue and texture of my hair was amazing.  He took his time and told me everything he was doing and gave me fantastic tips for my hair type.  My highlights look bright, yet natural.  Also, the products used at the salon smell amazing.  I highly recommend Sebastian.  He was so kind, helpful and talented.  I will definitely be back for a lash treatment!” Jaimie

“Can’t believe I ever left Sebastian.  I will never stray again!  My blonde highlights are amazing!  You truly have a gift!  So freaking proud of you!  YOUR salon looks amazing.  Honey, can’t decide who I love more?! You or my hair!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Ok, now reader,  make an appointment! No really!”   Sherrie

“Walked in during my lunch break and they happily sat me down for a trim, shampoo, and blowdry.  It was a fantastic, easy experience.  The staff is lighthearted and real, and Sebastian is friendly and professional.  I got my updo done at the SV Faust months ago, and it was a 4-star experience, but this second try with Faust really improved my impression of the business as a whole. I would recommend them for a haircut for sure!” Sam

“My experience at Faust Salon was good and it was Sebastian who made it excellent!
I had walked in last night, looking for a quick thinking all I wanted was a cut. Turns out there was no time for me that night and after going over my hair with Mr. Sebastian for a moment, we decided to make me an appt for the next day. He really wanted to give me the cut I wanted, and boy did he ever! After he seated me in my chair and we talked more about the cut I told him that I was thinking of getting color too but I wasn’t sure and didn’t mention it before. That’s when he told how he does color too! He worked with me to find the right shade of a purple color that wasn’t too bright or too burgundy looking. He mixed me up something real nice and it looks amazing! While I was getting colored, I had mentioned how I was going to get my brows done after my salon visit and what do ya know? He is an  esthetician as well! A man of many hats. He did my waxing while I was in the chair and my brows look lovely. It was practically painless too! Once we finished the waxing and the coloring, I went back to the cutting chair and the last pieces of his masterpiece were in the works. He took his time and even involved others to give a second opinion. I appreciated that extra care he put into handling my hair. It came out even better than I could have imagined, no kidding! The cut, the color, my brows; everything he did turned out amazing. I’ve been dealing with some serious health issues this past year and being transformed into a more beautiful woman  on the outside lifted my spirits to a great height today. I left feeling like I had made friends and I felt better and more positive than I had in a while. I not only recommend this Salon but Sebastian! He is kind, gentle with the waxing, makes you feel comfy and is a terrific stylist! Thank You Sebastian!!!” Teenamarie

“I’m new to town and I decided to try this place out. I had the best experience ever with a stylist. Sebastian listened to what I wanted and we had such a fun time. He is very personable and made me feel at ease. Until now, I can’t say that I’ve had a great time at a salon until now. It’s worth the price for both the service and the experience. I love it and I wished I lived closer!!” Joyce

“I originally wandered into Faust at the Capitola mall as an act of desperation looking for a haircut for my 4-year-old daughter. I quickly realized this is a real deal salon and was so worried about subjecting the stylist to a squirmy preschooler. Sebastian is a true gem. We’ve been back a number of times. While the cost is on the pricey end for a child’s haircut, it’s worth every penny. He does a fantastic job on her hair, taking his time and being so patient, kind and gracious, even when my kid is being less than an angel. Her hair looks GREAT! I can only imagine the marvelous job he must do on grownup hair.” EM

“Called very last minute for a huge job: remove extensions, highlights/balayage and a brand new haircut. Sebastian answered the phone and rearranged his schedule just to fit me in. He listened very closely and knew exactly what I wanted. We even discussed only dying enough to keep my hair from getting more damaged. Sebastian spent an hour and a half taking the extensions out (which I wasn’t even charged for) and did a really meticulous and beautiful balayage. The cut looked perfect and somehow was exactly what I wanted, and Sebastian was Awesome at figuring out what would look good. After almost 4 hours I was completely done, and the price was extremely affordable, and for the first time ever!!!! I was completely stoked on my haircut/color/everything. Sebastian is awesome!!” Heather

“The hardest part about moving to a new area is finding a hairstylist that you like and trust, and I found exactly what I needed at Faust. My hairstylist, Sebastian DeEldon, is a miracle worker. I recognized right away that he was exceptional when he really took his time to wash my hair and educate me on the products he was using. He is a perfectionist and is extraordinarily thorough. He really cares about making his clients feel comfortable. Hands down this is the best haircut I’ve ever had. I went in for a wash and cut and came out feeling amazing! I am so thankful to have found this place and an amazing hairstylist. Ladies, go see Sebastian. He is very talented and knows what he is doing. You won’t be disappointed.” Faurnoush
