What they're saying

“10/10 experience from consult to install to maintenance. Kelly installed my hair extensions recently and I mean it when I say they are everything I’ve dreamed of and more! My confidence has gone through the roof–it’s been life changing. It’s very obvious she knows exactly what she’s doing and isn’t going to rip you off just to put more money in her pocket. Not to mention, she’s available on Instagram DM for questions, last-minute schedule changes and recommendations whenever which was been super helpful! Her transparency, authenticity, flexibility and raw talent make her the ideal stylist.

I’m relatively new to Seattle and now that I’ve found my place, I won’t go anywhere else to get my hair done. It truly feels like you’re treating yourself starting the second you walk in the door. And everyone else at the salon is so nice and welcoming too. Nothing but positive things to say about Kelly + Sensa!”

– Hannah T. on Yelp

“Let me start off by saying Dana is incredible, Sense is amazing, and this is one of the best investments I have ever made in myself and would highly recommend Sensa for all your hair goals.

I think the pictures speak for themselves but to make a long story short, I saw the back of my head in a picture and knew I needed more than a the thickening shampoo I’ve been using since college. There are no salons in Seattle (to my knowledge) that do this type of hand-tie extension technique. I went in for a free consultation, Dana happened to have an opening and the hair that would fit my natural hair color the best and fit me in the next day (instant gratification) – but I would recommending booking asap because they are usually booked out and they usually need to custom order the hair.

All in all, I am one month in with these extensions, my natural hair has grown a noticible amount which is great, and this has exceeded all expectations.”

-L.F. on Yelp

“If you are looking for a new salon, I cannot recommend Sensa Salon enough. I moved back to Seattle after almost 6 years away & my old hair stylist had moved so I needed someone new & I found Sensa Salon. Dana is amazing – I got Habit Hand Tied extensions put in and not only does she do a consult beforehand, she literally made my hair dreams come true and went above and beyond to make sure my hair was perfect. Beyond extensions and an amazing color, she, Alicia and the rest of the staff are so friendly and welcoming, which isn’t always the case at salons I’ve been to in the past. If you are looking for a new stylist, this place is everything.”

-Natalie G on Yelp

“I came to Sensa to have Alicia bring all my long, voluminous hair dreams come true! And she totally delivered! I had wanted to try out the Habit hand tied extensions since I was sick of my thin hair and had just come to a plateau with growth. Alicia explained it all to me in perfect detail and educated me on all the aftercare. My hair turned out absolutely beautiful! Totally blended, seamless color and cut. I’ve never loved my hair more! It gave me so much more confidence, I’m so happy with it that I can’t imagine my hair without it now!”
