I was vacationing in California and needed a toner and style for an event. Autumn came in on a moment's notice and did an incredible job! The color and style were perfect. Thank you for a great look for my event!!!!!!!

Needs better professionalism
It was my first time here. I chose this place because of all the positive feedback on Yelp. I was bored with my hair and wanted a change. I had tons of hair and wanted a lot of it chopped off, therefor I wanted someone who really knew what they were doing.

Hair Salon
Special Fx is a quality salon for getting your hair done. It is a huge facility with a spa attached. You can also get your nails done along with a massage. They offer great package deals that include lunch if you decide to spend the day at the spa. They are all trained professionals and walk ins are welcome. Their prices are usually the going rate for hair and massages.

Best hair extensions, great hair salon! – I have been going to this hair salon for about five years now. I have seen a couple of hair stylists for my highlights, colors, and cuts, and always got good results. I feel like they really make an effort to take care of my hair and keep it healthy. I recently started getting hair extensions because I hate how thin my hair is, and I love them!! I decided to shell out the cash to get my hair extensions in San Jose at Special FX, they sold me on them because of the technique and hair that they use. The initial investment seemed a little high because I had to buy the hair. It is actually human hair from people from Europe! Kind of weird, but it looks t...  more>>

Great results on my hair
When I first moved here from San Diego, I was really nervous about finding a new hair stylist - I am always afraid of getting a scissor-happy hair dresser. I tried a few different hair salons and "day spas" in San Jose before I went to Special FX. The best thing about my hair service was that my stylist got my highlights right up to my roots. And I told her I didn't want to trim more than two inches off, and she listened! And after reading L.M.'s review of their waxing services, I think I might try out some of the salon's other services.

The best waxing ever!
Special FX was much nicer than the outside storefront in an inconspicuous mini-mall with a Smoke shop and a donut shop- simply called "Donut" would suggest. It is beautiful inside and goes on for miles. They offer every kind of salon service available. I went for a badly needed eyebrow and bikini wax. My aesthetician, Iris gave me the perfect eyebrow wax and an almost painless bikini wax. She also convinced me to try microdermabrasion for which I will be eternally thankful. My skin looks better every time I go in.

Lovely Salon, Great Services
Tucked in a strip mall on Branham, Special FX is a very nice salon and day spa. The salon is quite large inside and has a pleasant and soothing atmosphere. Anya is a great stylist -- she is by far the best colorist I have found and is friendly, accommodating, and provides great cuts and color at very reasonable prices relative to other salons in the area. Everyone there is friendly, very service oriented, and geared towards providing their customers with a delightful experience all around.

Great Service, Upscale Salon
Special FX offers a range of beauty services, including hair coloring, highlighting, and extensions, facials and microdermabrasion, massages, manicures and pedicures, and treatments for the body. I received excellent service from the staff and love the salon's ambiance.
