I receive many comments about how healthy my hair appears – all because of Tijeras!

I really do not recall when I began experiencing the wonders of Tijeras Hair Company—but it was at least 30 years ago. I actually followed a stylist there because I liked the way he cut my hair. He moved on but I stayed because Jacque was so fantastic at the same art. Then I discovered the products and have used nothing but since. The shampoo and conditioner have continually improved and are extremely “hair friendly.” I receive many comments about how healthy my hair appears – all because of Tijeras!

Thank you for keeping me in good shape—if not top to toe—at least on TOP.

I am so pleased with my new color… my real color.

I am so pleased with my new color… my real color. I had been wanting to let my hair go to its natural color gray for a long time. I had been to a couple hair dressers with no luck… I went to Liz at Tijeras salon finally. She highlighted my hair a light color… I liked it OK – it blended with my roots somewhat, but it had a lot of yellow in it still. I prepared myself to just be patient and let it grow… I also wanted to let it grow long… smart huh?

The miracle occurred last week. I went to the salon for a haircut. Jacque decided that Liz could take the yellow out of my hair. Liz painted my hair with some magic potion. My hair is perfect. Truly amazing! My roots are out a couple inches and it is all the same color. Problem solved!

I absolutely love, love, love what Leslie does with my straight, fine, thin, short hair!!

She's been cutting it for many years. In the last couple of years, she's been coloring it as well. She gives me golden blonde highlights and colors the gray my natural, medium brown. I walk out feeling like a million bucks!! Everyone at the salon is professional, friendly, and funny! Tijeras is a wonderful place!!

love love LOVE this place.

This is THE best hair salon I’ve been too! I’ve always hated my hair and before Liz even touched my head she made me feel so much more confident and attractive with my straight hair. Her attention to detail, professionalism and connection with customers is hard to find. The place is so calming, welcoming and so aesthetic. I mentioned I was a new Mom and it was nice to get alone time. It was as though she put in extra effort to make sure I got pampered. I will be getting my hair done here for my wedding in September! I would give more stars if I could.

Took my hair from brown with silver roots to full-on gray!

It was finally time for me to take the plunge and go gray. Leslie walked me through the process and took exceptional care with my hair. When it was time for the big reveal, I was so pleased with the results. I couldn’t wait to share with my friends and family. Thank you, Leslie, for your professionalism and extreme care. I could not be happier with the results!

For almost 35 years Jacque Asher and Tijeras Hair Co. have been a vital part of my life.

For almost 35 years Jacque Asher and Tijeras Hair Co. have been a vital part of my life—anyone who has ever complimented my haircut or styling was actually singing Jacque’s praises. My gratitude is boundless for her genius and loyalty to her friends. I’m hoping for a lifelong “collaboration” with this fabulous woman!

40 Years and Counting!

I’ve been entrusting my hair care to Jacque for over 40 years when she had a single-person shop. She’s a barber extraordinaire. Then Liz came of age and experience. She’s a magician with hair color and haircut. You can’t go wrong with Tijeras. They work to get it right.

My friends can’t believe I've had the same hairdresser for 28+ years!

Hi Lizzy,

THIRTY SIX YEARS OMG!! It is hard to believe… time really flies. Well, twenty eight years ago on September 24, 1983 I was married to Billy, and you did my hair… can you believe it!! My friends can’t believe I have had the same hairdresser for all those years, 28 years and longer.

Your mom Jacque was cutting my hair when I was at Jefferson Junior High, ha-ha. Now my 17 year-old daughter, Brianna won’t have any one but you cut and style her hair. It’s been great for me and my family having you and Jacque take care of us for all of our special events, routine hair care. Wonder products… and everything else. Many Blessings to you and your mom. Love You!!

I give them an AAAAAA+++++++++ rating!

I have been to many salons looking for the right Hairstylist, done endless searching on the internet for reviews on the best salons, only to come up short. I have had my hair colored and cut by other salons and was disappointed in one way or another.

My hair seems to take on a life of its own and each stylist I went to only made my hair look worse. I heard a few people say that Tijeras Shampoo was wonderful and made their hair feel soft and smooth. I decided to try the product and also found the Salon was here in Albuquerque, so I thought I would give both a try. I was extremely happy with their products, as they made my hair feel very soft.

As for the Staff at Tijeras Hair Co., they are the BEST!! Everyone is so knowledgeable. Liz has worked on my hair and they have really taken the time to understand my needs and really go out of their way to make me happy as a customer.

I give them an AAAAAA+++++++++ rating. My color and cut are awesome—thank you Liz for all you have done for me and giving me faith in Hairstylists again.

After thirty years of patronizing Tijeras Salon I can safely say they are professionals who are pleasant, considerate, and certainly know their business. The salon is filled with light, airy, clean clean clean, and has a happy, welcoming aura.

So pleased with the individual attention I received!

I was so impressed today by your thoughtful consideration and advice about the perm I got today. Leslie was terrific, as always, but I was so pleased with the individual attention I received. It was very clear that you wanted to be sure the hairstyle I received was the one I wanted, and it was, and is!

Thank you again for your kindness, consideration, and professionalism as well as your artistry and experience. I couldn’t be happier and frankly, I think I look pretty good.

I got the best haircut I have ever had in my entire life!

I am delighted to spread the word about Tijeras Hair Company.

The quality of service and products at Tijeras is strictly top shelf, the staff and stylists talented, professional and warm, and the ambiance at the salon is comfortable, relaxed, and appealing. I have experienced a range of services at Tijeras and each time my expectations have been exceeded.

I’ve had an especially great experience with Keratin Treatment. I was nervous about it beforehand, but Liz customized my treatment to make sure I was satisfied. The result has been fantastic; my previously unruly hair is healthy and manageable, and best of all, low maintenance. I highly recommend Tijeras for the Keratin Treatment, haircuts and color, and possibly the best scalp massage in town!!

...I would go back to her anytime I am in town.

I am from SLC and only in town for the balloon fiesta, I called only 2 days before and they were able to get me in on a moment's notice. They were very nice and had the best atmosphere I have been in for a while. Leslie was amazing and I would go back to her anytime I am in town. Thank You so much.

The best hair salon I’ve ever been to.

Dear Liz and Jacque,

I’ve wanted to write this for a while, just so you know what you mean to the community and me.

Tijeras Hair Co. has been, for me, the best hair salon I’ve ever been to (and we are talking about 50 years of haircuts and color). What is so wonderful about the salon are the women who own it and those who work there.

Jacque and Liz are two of the most generous women in the city. They are always there to give a hand up to new businesses or to people who need a boost. I love walking into the salon to find artwork, jewelry, and other wonderful items for sale by local artists. They look out for their clientele and treat everyone like family.

Jennifer, who greets you with a genuine smile, is friendly and professional. She works so hard on last minute cancellations (I’m guilty) and can work miracles with the schedule. Leslie is a great stylist with a sparkling upbeat personality who makes everyone feel welcome.

Liz is a master colorist and stylist and I’ve seen her do wonders with my hair and others. I trust her implicity with how she cuts my hair – it always flatters my look. Jacque has years of experience under her belt and can cut both men’s and women’s hair with equal finesse.

I don’t think Liz and Jacque realize the impact they have on their clients, but I think they should know that they make everyone feel good about themselves. I’ve seen them train new graduates out of beauty school and pass on their wealth knowledge to them. They are generous to a fault. That’s what I love about them – that in addition to their expertise, they are good human beings. Thank you for being so kind to me, for making my hair look great, and for being such sweet, caring, and strong women.

In addition to Jacque’s and Liz’s skill with hair, they provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

I have curly hair. I need an experienced and expert hairstylist. I have found Tijeras to be where I can get the best cut. I have gone there for years and frequently run into old friends and make new ones. In addition to Jacque’s and Liz’s skill with hair, they provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They go out of their way to provide optimal appointment time and are flexible when I have to change an appointment or schedule one quickly. Hairstyling skill, an efficiently run salon, and a great staff of helpers make Tijeras my choice for the curls.

KayHair cuts/styling, hair color, highlights, low lights, transition to natural gray.

Liz is the only one who has ever done a consistently fantastic job of cutting my curly hair.

I have been a fan of Liz at Tijeras ever since I witnessed an amazing before and after cut/style she did for a client. The client's hair was long enough to sit on, and straight. She was ready to have it cut short. When I saw her emerge after the cut, I was stunned at how cute and stylish her now short hair looked!

Liz is the only one who has ever done a consistently fantastic job of cutting my curly hair. She is masterful with hair color, a great talent of which I have also benefited. And, when I was ready to transition from hair coloring to my natural salt and pepper, she did a phenomenal job!

They have gone many extra miles to ensure a clean and safe environment before, during, and since COVID-19 entered our lives. Through all they have endured, their smiles and friendly service continue to shine.

...such an essential service and resource for us and our community.

Dear Jacque,

Hard to believe that Spring has come and gone since I last enjoyed a visit to Tijeras Hair Company. So pleased (and relieved) that you're welcoming us back to care for us and style our hair. You and Liz provide such an essential service and resource for us and our community. Thank you. Take care. Stay safe and well. (longtime satisfied client and friend)

I have been using the full line of hair care products for over twenty years.

With regards to Tijeras Naturals Hair Care Products, I have been using the full line of hair care products for over twenty years. When my hair was long and without color or perm, the products left my hair with a lustrous finish and a silken weightless touch to say nothing of native fragrance of clove or sage. For years I have been trying to get them to go further with their fragrances native to our enchanting southwest, but they have held fast to their original good choices in fragrance and in price. Time and age has asked me to shorten and color my coiffure. Even with color highlights and the use of heat in my hair grooming, the shine that nature intends is preserved with these products without any sacrifice of volume, manageability, or the silkiest touch.
