Below are the best 25 nail salons in Santa Barbara picked by BestProsInTown

“omg where do I even begin! I had such an amazing experience at Keota's hair salon and would 100% recommend her services to anyone and everyone! Keota is such a sweetheart and so much fun to be around. The minute I walked in for my appointment I immediately felt cared for and relieved knowing that I was in good hands. On a whim, I made the mistake of box dying my hair on my own, and when that went horribly wrong, I sought the expertise of a professional to try and fix what I had done to my hair. Not only was Keota incredibly knowledgeable about hair and how dye works, she was also very honest about what the most realistic approach to correcting my hair would be to achieve the look that I wanted without causing too much damage to it. Most professionals would not be this honest and caring for the client's hair health, instead they would most likely sit their client down and proceed with doing whatever they had asked for, without giving a second thought to how much damage they would be inflicting, and how costly the procedure would end up being. It is clear that unlike most salon professionals, Keota is not in it for the money, and instead truly cares about her clients and only wants the best for them. This undoubtedly shows in her services, as I left the salon with healthy, beautiful hair that exceeded my expectations! I mean Keota is truly a miracle worker! I was able to achieve the color that I had wanted, as well as preserve the health of my hair. On top of that, I felt like I had made a new friend. Keota and I talked and laughed the whole time that I was there, which completely boosted my mood and set me up for a good day! Not to mention the confidence that I had gained from Keota hyping me up, and delivering on making my hair look absolutely stunning! Overall, I can not express enough how amazing Keota is not only as a hairstylist, but as a person and friend. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair and will definitely become a regular client of her's at her new location! 10000/10 recommend Keota's services! Go and see her at her new location, you won't be disappointed!”

“I called at 12 and had an appt for 3. I picked this shop because I had very good luck at Angel Nails in Atlanta. I picked the spa mani/pedi as I was not interested in any polish/color; I just wanted a really nice trim, buff, scrub, massage, ya know? And it was great. Very nice atmosphere, busy place, everyone seemed like regulars. Very happy here!”
