For more than 100 years, Moler Barber College has trained students in the art of cutting hair. The school provides clients with inexpensive haircuts, all of which are performed by the hands of student barbers-in-training. Fades, lines, and tapers are available at the Oakland location Tuesday-Friday from 9:30 a.m-4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m, and at the San Pablo location Tuesday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m.

Many of the stylists at Jovance Salon & Barbering have held their licenses for more than 20 years, which means they bring a full generation of experience to each haircut and beauty treatment. Using products from brands such as Aveda, MoroccanOil, and Get Fresh, they style and color new hairdos according to their clients' preferences. In a separate gentlemen's room, barbers cut hair, trim beards, and reposition monocles.
If it weren't for the bright sign out front, it would be easy to mistake The Courtyard Salon for a woodland cottage or a scene from a commercial where everyone has a happier camping trip thanks to insect repellent. The cozy salon is tucked away in a lush garden, with leafy trees, fragrant flowers, and rustic patio furniture. And the charm doesn't stop at the door. Sunlight trickles in through soft curtains and casts a warm glow on dark hardwood floors, golden walls, and comfy red armchairs. Instead of the princesses and singing bunnies you might expect from such a fairy-tale scene, the salon buzzes with a staff of skilled stylists, nail technicians, and spa specialists. They perform a sweeping array of beauty services, including haircuts, meticulous mani-pedis, and tension-blasting massages, all with the help of advanced skin and hair-care products from top purveyors like Pureology, Kendra, and Onesta.
