I've been getting my hair cut with Sam at Stylized for several years now. No matter what kind of haircut or color you want done, Sam is the man to do it. Sam is friendly, humorous and knows what he is doing. I've never left the salon feeling like I didn't have the haircut that I wanted. If you are looking for a reasonably priced salon then Stylized is the place to go!

Sam has also cut my kid's hair. When football season comes around my son knows to see Sam to plan out his football season haircut and color.

Having just moved from LA I was naturally a bit anxious about getting my first haircut in Anchorage. I ran into a woman with a fabulous haircut at Nordstrom, and she gave me the name and number of this place and the stylist (and owner) Sam. I have also heard good things about his other stylist, Wendi.

I have curly hair and he managed to cut a very stylish asymmetrical bob that was a dream. He spent time, did not rush, and has a good approach.

Total bill -$37. A steal considering what I am used to!

I will be going back... I think now that he knows my hair I can go a bit more edgy with my lines. :)
