I highly recommend hair services by Helena! I am very happy with haircuts and color services I receive. For starters, I am VERY picky about my bangs, I have a cowlick on one side that I don't like cut too short. Happily, I have no problems with my bangs since going to Helena, it is wonderful! Also, Helena runs on schedule & I don't have to wait, I'm a busy working mom and I'm pleased she gets me in and out quickly without cutting any corners. Sometimes it's difficult to schedule my apointments a week or more in advance & Helena is usually able to accommodate my preferred appointment times. Very high quality work and she wants you to be happy with it. Finally Helena is very pleasant to have an intelligent conversation with if that's your thing, well versed with many topics & interests :)

_I found Helena by reading all the great reviews online after I had a
really bad experience at another salon that left my hair damaged and
with a very bad color job.
Helena fixed my color and gave me a great cut a few weeks ago, then I
came back yesterday and got an amazing Brazilian Blowout. My hair looks
and feels shiny and healthy again, and I feel so much better about
myself than I did after the other salon ruined it.
She did the best job with my hair, I love it and I've been getting compliments all day!
She's also such a friendly, nice person to be around - it makes the time spent with her a lot of fun.
I'm so glad I found Helena, I would recommend her to everyone - I will not get my hair done anywhere else now!

I had heard a lot about Helena and thought gave it a try and it was the best decision. She totally transformed my hair. I just told her i want to try something new and she totally surprised me. She is very friendly, Skilled, talented and artistic. I totally recommend her and see myself visiting her regularly.

I don't like going to the salon because I always end up with a hairstyle that I'm not happy with.
Helena was so friendly right when I walked into the salon. She was helpful with advise about the style I had chosen and gave me some really good tips for hair care and styling tips as well.

I went to Helena for the 1st time last week after reading all the
reviews.. I generally don't trust anyone with my hair unless I know the
person is a real good hairdresser. So, after reading all the wonderful
reviews about her, I decided to go to her. I wanted a layered haircut.
My hair are too voluminous & thick. Helena did a superb job with my
hair. She even thinned my hair & straightened them. She did
everything to make them look great! Needless to say, my hair looked
fabulous after the haircut! I would say this was my best haircut &
experience so far! 5 stars to the highly talented Helena!!
P.S. She has such a great haircut herself! It is so funky! I told her I
loved her haircut. She asked me to guess her age. She seemed like a 40
year old woman to me.. And I was so shocked to hear she is in her 50s'!
She's turned younger with a great haircut! That says it all!:)

Hi..For haircut I tried so many places and yet not satisfied. Then I was searching over the internet and found Helena Curry at New Stage Salon. I talked to her on the phone and took an appointment. I went to her salon on time today only. She talked to me about what I wanted and gave suggestions too. Then finally the haircut I got, I was really satisfied and happy too. Thanks Helena.

Helena has always done a great job on my hair. I just go to the salon and let her decide the color and style. She never disappoints!!!!

Helena has been cutting my hair for 10 years and I would not trust anyone else. She always does a fantastic job and she always makes time for me. I highly recommend her to everyone!!!

I met Helena in 1997. My cousin is her client and her hair always look fabulous. I tried Helena to style my hair for a wedding and since then I came for weekly styling. I like to bring her crazy pictures of classic hairdos; I get up-dos and big hairdos; perms, colors and highlights. Helena is an amazing hairstylist and a good listener. I always come out fantastic no matter what hairstyles I ask for her to do. She and I became close-knit family friends; I attended her daughter, Meredith's Debut party and she comes to all my parties. Helena constructed a beautiful aura around her and I wish her all the best.

A lot of guys know the saying, "The difference between a good haircut and a bad one is about two weeks." Well, I've been going to Helena for some time now, and I'd say the difference between a Helena cut and an average cut, from a Supercuts or barbershop, is at least three months. The night after she cut my hair, a couple of girls remarked to me that my hair was "oddly perfect." Odd because it looked perfectly natural, but all in place, according to them. Three months later, I keep hearing compliments about my hair - that's been the pattern for a year or so. Helena not only does great work, but she's a great person in every sense. Bright, cheerful, and creative, she really gets to know her customers and tweaks things during different haircuts to always try to improve and personalize each look. To guys - it may not be the manliest sounding thing to go to a hairstylist, but it really pays off. You don't have to know all about hair, just give Helena a general suggestion of some look that has caught your eye, and she can spin a couple years worth of hairstyles out of it.

For twenty years Helena has done my hair. It has been a journey of short, long, up, down, tapered, tortured (kidding) and colored. She has a colorful personality and those nimble fingers can really manipulate those scissors. She mixes a great cocktail which goes on your tresses and appears good enough to eat. At times, one appears from outer space with an adornment of tin foil but then the finished look is always pleasing and you know you are back here on earth. She is one great number.....#1 in my book.

Helena started as my mother's hair stylist in 1999. My mom was one of those little old ladies from Pasadena. She loved to talk and Helena was a good listener and become good friends with her. I started going to Helena in 2003 when my hair stylist moved to Stockton. Helena has done an outstanding job with my hair ever since. We have become fast and famous friends and socialize quite frequently. I do gourmet dinners and Helena and her boyfriend Mike join me for those dinners. I highly recommend Helena.
Manny T., Hayward, CA 7/28/2010
We've known Helena since 1999 when she was introduced to us by our friend and since then, we've been going to her. She is a very talented, charming and creative hairstylist and we highly recommend her. She's the best, you should try her. We are in the music business and so we have to be in style.

My co-workers hair always looks very nice, the color looked very naturally the cut always great. She told me that her hair stylist was Helena Curry in Fremont. Since I live in Milpitas, I thought I try Helena out. Well that was 3 years ago, and I'm loving it. She highlights my hair gives it great style, naturally looking and I've never had so many complements on my hair before. She's gentle and very sweet. I highly recommend her. She's great.
Flora T., Fremont, CA 7/15/2010
Helena has been my hairstylist since 1987. Was conservative and didn't like to mess with my hair. I just wanted "easy care and ready to go". I see Helena every week. In the past few years, she has been coloring my hair bright red. She says it fits in with my new found interest in painting classes. Helena has given me several hair styles which fit my changing lifestyle.
Tara C., Fremont, CA 7/13/2010
I was referred to Helena and she has been styling my hair for about 3 years. You always hear how important a GOOD haircut is. I can always count on Helena to give me that cut. Now, my daughter is a client.
Lara Sumera, Fremont, CA 7/6/2010
Helena Curry was amazing! I came in in a fluster trying to get my hair done for a wedding that was going to be a few short hours away. But she listened to what I wanted, and even working under the pressure of my imposed time-constraint, as well as with the difficulties of my unruly long hair, it came out better than I could hope for! I'm a Filipina, and my hair is notorious for not keeping its volume or style as hours pass by, but by the end of the night, 6 hours later, my hair was surprisingly still bouncy and curled. I highly recommend Helena for all your styling needs!
Sherri S., Fremont, CA 7/3/2010
Helena has been working with my hair for 11 years. Because of her great people skills and amazing talent as a professional, I keep coming back.
Serei T., San Jose, CA 6/29/2010
Helena does awesome work, I've been going to her place since high school and she always does new things with my hair that seem to work well. She always manages to hook me up with some good pricing too!

Helena has been doing my hair for years. It all started with my mom and I, then my 2 sisters, niece, my daughter, then my son (who's now 21) and now my 2 granddaughters! We all love Helena and she has been making us look good for all these years. Thanks Helena!
