2010-07-14 14:24:26   I have dry n damaged hair and have never been completely satisfied after getting my hair done. After coming out of Aaranna's I loved my hair! I loved the cut and my color..prices are fair for the over all look. Very friendly and convienent. I will be returning to get my daughter's ear's pierced and my sister's eyebrows waxed. —jbm85

2010-07-27 13:46:04   2010-07-27: The next time you need anything done with your hair, do yourself a favor and go to see Nooria at Aaranna's. She not only does great styling, cutting, and color, but her prices are more than reasonable and she herself is such a kind and very interesting person to talk to. I've been going there for about three years, and I look forward to the experience whenever I go. Barbara Drushell —BarbaraDrushell

2010-07-31 17:25:07   I don't know whether the haircuts here are good haircuts or great haircuts. I go here all the time because Nooria is very nice and it's like getting a haircut from professional who is also a friend. I trust her and her prices are good. —GregKuperberg

2010-07-31 20:24:47   Just went here today - my hair is adorable! Great cut and great prices. —RohiniJasavala

2010-08-03 18:27:18   I can personally attest to both Nooria and Farida's expertise. I've used their waxing, threading, and hair cutting services. I have been satisfied each time I go, since the job is done thoroughly, with thought and care. Also both are fabulous people that engage in conversation so as to personalize the experience. :)


2010-08-16 22:30:29   My friend Parisa and I went to Aaranna to get our eyebrows waxed and to get a haircut. Both Farida (also known as Fara) and Nooria did our haircuts and our eyebrow wax. They did a great job on our haircuts and I definitely recommend Aaranna Hair Design. If you want the best eyebrow shape you should go to Aaranna because both Nooria and Fara are Persian and they know how to shape eyebrows well. —SerenaBhagirath

2010-08-29 20:57:08   Very happy with service! I have been going here for eyebrow waxing and haircuts for about four years. I also bring my 5 yr old for haircuts. It's very kid friendly, I also have a 1 and half yr old and there's a train set that keeps her busy the whole time. They do not do nails here so there is no chemical smells to worry about with the kids. I would and do recommend to friends and family.


2010-10-16 13:39:40   I walked in today and I was extremely pleased! I went in for an eyebrow threading and Fara did an amazing job!! I told her what I wanted and she spent a ton of time on me, making sure that my brows looked exactly as I wanted them. I am definitely going back in the future and I'm going to recommend this salon to all my friends in Davis. —KathrynAzarvand

2010-10-29 15:13:53   I saw Nooria a few weeks ago and my hair came out great. I would defiantly recommend her. —JulieTodd

2010-11-06 22:16:11   I had my first color ever, and Nooria did an amazing job. I showed her 1-2 pictures, and she knew the look I wanted. Really great! Also, the quality of work for the prices for her services is way better than the more expensive salons in Downtown Davis. —Stephie

2010-11-12 12:35:34   I've been going here for almost 5 months now and Fara's work is just perfect. I recommend her to everyone :) —AmirHassan

2010-12-15 20:28:39   I've gone to Aaranna twice and have gotten my hair cut and colored, and my eyebrows shaped and her (Nooria's) service is amazing! Walking into Aaranna is like walking into a friend's house - although this friend is amazing at doing hair! There's a group of five girls at my high school who rely on and are more than satisfied with this place - service is wonderful, staff is nice, and prices are more than reasonable - it's a gem! —KatieWynne

2011-01-01 11:34:08   I won't let anyone else cut my hair except for Nooria at Aaranna! She cuts and styles it exactly like I want. She has introduced me to new products that have made my dry hair shiny and soft! She does a fantastic job and is a wonderful person as well! I recommend her most highly. —RShahrokh

2011-05-02 14:02:35   Nooria did a BEAUTIFUL job on my hair. The cut is fantastic—fun, bouncy, pretty, and exactly what I wanted. She was professional and very nice, and really took her time on styling my hair and making sure I was happy. And the price was excellent! West Davis is out of the way for me (although Westlake Plaza is right on D & K lines), but it was so worth it. I'll definitely go back next time. Remember to bring cash or check, and while they do take walk-ins, I'd recommend calling ahead. —zombiek

2011-06-02 19:28:19   Went to Nooria today for a haircut and eyebrow waxing. The entire experience was great, was able to make an appointment day of and was seen on time. Nooria asked me several times while cutting my hair how short I would like it, which I really appreciated. She did an excellent job on both my haircut and my eyebrows in particular which must have been quite a task for her considering how out of control they were before :) Overall, great experience, I went to Aarana's because of the plethora of excellent reviews here and am happy to add one of my own to the list. —desireea

2011-09-09 22:24:42   I have had my hair cut by Nooria a few times now and every time she has done a wonderful job! She is quick but really takes care of you. She even gave me a free eyebrow wax! —ElizabethBrown

2011-09-22 12:29:30   I had Nooria (from Aaranna Hair Design) do my hair for my wedding this past August. She was wonderful, patient and thorough. I wanted to do an up-do/side bun for my wedding, and we had a trial first back in May. She looked at the pictures I brought in and did my hair just like I wanted. She was very accommodating, and even came in on a Sunday to do my hair and my bridesmaid's hair before my wedding day began. I told her I was nervous about my hair falling out of the up-do because my hair is very fine/silky, and she used a great hair product on me - it didn't even budge during my whole outdoor wedding! I would highly recommend using Nooria if you are trying to find a stylist for your wedding day. Although the shop is a bit small if you have a huge wedding party, her prices are way cheaper than any salon in downtown Davis, and it's worth the few minutes drive to go to her. —MFerreira

2011-10-15 15:26:13   I went into Aaranna Hair Design today for the first time for an eyebrow wax. I typically get my brows done at nail salons, and wasn't sure what to expect from Aaranna's. When I walked in I was surprised at how small the salon was, as well as how empty it was. My only complaint was that Aaranna's lacked a waxing bed, so I had to sit in a regular hair cutting chair with my neck cranked back. It was uncomfortable, but Nooria did a very thorough and great job on my brows. Even as I was paying she was looking at them to make sure they were good, and plucked a little more. I definitely plan to go back for a haircut, because I can see Nooria taking the same care and effort with my hair as she did with my brows. Will definitely recommend to friends! A very friendly and comfortable environment. —teresamary

2012-01-23 20:37:57   I've been going here to get my brows waxed for around a year and they're AMAZING! Nooria is so friendly every time I go in, she always manages to find time for me even if she has a lot of scheduled appointments (I'm terrible about being a walk in, I should really start making appointments). I love the work they do there, I won't go anywhere else until I have to leave Davis. —Hastings1066

2012-01-29 23:42:24   I am so happy I found this place! I had my hair in bad shape and Nooria did such a good job on cutting it so that it can look fuller and healthy. The prices for my cut and color were very reasonable compared to the high prices in the area. Not only that but she takes her time to get it right and making sure that she is meeting your expectations. She was very kind and definitely not trying to sell you more than what you needed. I highly recommend this place. I recently went and only did it because I read the reviews she had, it was totally worth it and will be coming back here again! —GYani

2012-03-03 20:36:26   Went there today for a cut and wax. Nooria was very nice and did a great job, I only wish that they took debit/credit cards. —NyssaSpector

2012-03-26 17:11:02   Two months ago, I went to Pomegranate in Downtown (expensive salon) where I got a really short hair cut, the hair dresser did an alright job: however, I LOVE my hair cut from Aaranna's more, especially considering I got a similar hair cut at Pomegranate with the biggest difference being that I paid twice (almost three times!) as much for HALF the volume [I have curly hair]. Aaranna's is very flexible on time too (I changed the appointment twice). Highly recommended for good quality at affordable prices :] —carolinaibarramendoz

2012-04-01 09:15:20   Last night I went to Nooria for the first time. She had kindly fit me in at the last minute before a hot date (because my usual hairstylist, the fabulous Thomas Lea of Hello Gorgeous, had an emergency and had to cancel my appt). Nooria did a BEAUTIFUL job coloring my hair! It is perfect. And very resonably priced. Thank you, thank you, Nooria! —Chamoudah

2012-05-04 09:49:02   I had a mishap with my hair and I needed a quick fix! She managed to fit me into her schedule and spent 3 hours in and out working on my stubborn hair. In the end, she was able to fix it and for much less then I thought it would be. She was extremely nice and knew what she was doing!!! I would highly recommend Nooria and I will be going back for all my hair needs! —Rebecka

2012-05-10 14:52:38   I have been getting my hair cut and colored by Nooria for several years. Many people ask me where I get my hair styled and I am always confident when referring them to Nooria. I love the products she uses on my hair. Even though I have my hair colored once a month, my hair is never dry or damaged. I have very sensitive skin and she suggested I have my brows threaded instead of waxing. Now I always have threading on my brows and facial hair as it is much kinder to my skin. Nooria is always welcoming and so interesting to talk to. I enjoy the time I spend with her. Another great advantage is the location. Parking is so convenient - not like trying to find parking in downtown Davis. I love this place. Billie Dunbar


2012-06-08 14:55:45   I got a haircut and deep conditioning here recently- both were great! Very good prices, Nooria is super sweet, and my hair looked just the way I wanted it. —SarahBon

2012-08-18 18:19:32   I just got my first cut and was very pleased. Nooria is very kind and I enjoyed talking with her. What a great cut and style for the price! —LisaKlewicki

2012-10-05 19:12:00   I went to Aaranna to get highlights and perm by Nooria who was recommended to me by my friend. Nooria did a great job and I am in love with my hair. The perm looks very natural and the highlights are exactly what I wanted. Nooria is very smart and talented. I really recommend her, even if you’re not sure what to do with your hair she will help you and you will not be disappointed by her work. I am very satisfied by her work. —VanessaCop

2013-01-14 14:25:49   I was able to schedule a same day appointment with Nooria, which I always appreciate. She did a great job on my highlights, the color and the placements were both spot on. I am even happier, because I've been charged literally twice as much as she charged for the same results! —kelseycee

2013-03-15 15:55:06   I got my hair highlighted last week by Nooria. It looks gorgeous! It looks very natural. I get a lot of compliments. —teri.m

2013-03-24 15:31:08   My daughter got her hair styled at Aaranna for her junior prom. She was very pleased with the results. It turned out exactly as she had wanted and held up all day and night! And because she was spending her own money, she was also pleased with how reasonable the price was! I would definitely recommend Aaranna to anyone looking for a wedding or prom stylist. —LynBigelow

2013-05-05 15:28:15   Had a great experience at Nooria's salon. She fit in my daughter late on a Saturday prom night, and she slaved until 8:30 to get the dye job done just the way my daughter wanted it. She is very accommodating. We will be returning! :) —FayeAK

2013-07-31 11:29:49   I go to Nooria for brow waxing because she does the best job of anyone in town for the most reasonable price. I have gotten my brows waxed many, many times at various salons and waxing joints all over town, in San Francisco, and elsewhere, and I have never been as satisfied with the end result as I am now. Same day appointments are also great, since I usually don't think about my brows until I am desperate! In fact, I am going in today. Thank you, Nooria! —shannahw

2013-11-06 19:29:21   I read comments on line and made an appointment for a gloss and cut. I ended up adding my first ever low lights. I am really happy with both the cut and the color. Jan —janpeiffer

2014-01-06 20:35:11   I am soo happy I found this place! Nooria is excellent with hair and always does such a great job and gives really good tips and advice for maintaining healthy hair and making the style last as long as possible. I'd gotten a perm here before and I absolutely loved it! It was perfect and lasted almost four months. Today I came in to get it touched up and ended up getting a cute new hair cut and flawless curls! Not only that, but after seeing Nooria do such an amazing job on another customer's hair (she dyed her hair from really dark shiny brown/black to a deep magenta/burgandy- red without bleaching it!) I might just be back in a week or so to get my own hair colored! Aaranna Hair Design is my go to hair salon where I can always expect to get perfect movie star hairstyles while maintaining its health, shine, and moisture for an awesome price! Thank you Nooria! —SamiHB

2014-06-02 18:02:00   Nooria has been doing my short, dyed hair and my daughter's long, wavy hair for two years. Nooria is the best! —Chamoudah

2015-08-22 18:14:38   Nooria does a splendid job with hair, and she is certainly a master of all hair-related activities, whether it is coloring, styling, or cutting. Her prices are extremely reasonable ($60 for full hair coloring as opposed to E Street Salon's $90+), and she gives many discounts! Because my hair was virgin black hair, the first time I got my hair fully dyed by her, some of my roots still showed. However, she told me to come back a couple of days later to get it redone for free. When I went to get it redone, she added a number of products and did a fantastic job of dying my roots and changing the undertone of the dyed hair. Although the amount of products she used the second time greatly exceed the amount she used the first time, she did not charge me at all! She even dried and styled my dyed hair too, without charging anything! —mkhandak
