Trust me... – My normal color stylist of a decade was out of town when I needed to get my hair done for a photo shoot... Through circumstance, I met Juli Massakas who offered to help me out of a bind. She took into consideration my skin tone, my life style, my hair care all into making decisions for my visit with her and the most important part... The hair length. Having hair that is as long as mine, reaching to the bottom of, well, my bottom. I have literally been burnt one too many times by other color stylists who over chemically treat it.
I enjoy Juli doing my hair now because not only does she know what she's doing and will give helpful suggestions, but she actually cares about her client and THEIR HAIR. She's talkative, well-educated and very comfortable to be around while she is working on you. It's not a stale environment there but rather very personable.
I high recommend going here and having Juli do your hair. (Especially for us folk with extra long in length.)
Plus, being right by that Crumbs cupcake bakery, it makes for a great day. Bring Juli one if you get work by her, I've discovered she likes that with her tip.
Go see Julie!! – I always worry about my blonde turning orangy, or too white, but Julie really listened to my concerns and it came out perfect.
She educated me on how to condition my scalp and ends and she even gave me a great deep conditioner on the house. I had a great experience.
HIT&MISS - bring a picture! – I have to say, going to Vidal is pretty hit&miss. I had some great cuts and some horrible cuts; some great dye jobs and some less than mediocre results. the only good thing is they will correct any cut and color free of charge.
Also, the stylists don't really consider face shapes and personalities when cutting hair, so make sure you go with a CLEAR idea of what you want and a PICTURE! My mom's friend went and even though she has a rounder, more mature face, she was given this weird, round, page boy bob that made her look like an imbecile. Another friend went with a picture of a cut showing long layers and LITERALLY got a mullet. She had a few wispy strands in the back and this shaggy mess all over.
Usually I am happy with the cut and pretty content with the color, but this last time I got this blunt barely layered limp mess that had everyone wondering if I'd gone to Super Cuts.
Also, as far as color, that too varies between ok and mediocre, and certainly don't expect miracles. They can do highlights competently and cover roots, but I wouldn't be looking for an extraordinary change. For the rising prices, it's really starting to not be worth it.
Best color dye job and hair-cut in town!!!!! – I went from frumpy to rocker-awesome within two hours! Juli Massakas (my colorist) is full of positive high-energy and is truly brilliant with color. I have followed her from ChopChop to Vidal Sassoon ever since she brought my blonde-burnt hair back to life! Now, it's healthy, shining and gorgeous! Absolutely stunning! After visits with her, I receive sooo many compliments on my color and my healthy hair! Lucy Hwang (my cutter and stylist) brought a rocker-shic and volume back to my hair when she suggested an awesome layered-shag cut. I totally LOVE it! Her suggestion took my hair from mommy-frau to MILF. Way frickin' cool! Both ladies are incredible!
Best Place to get Hair dyed!!! – Anyone in search of the best colorist in LA can stop now....JULIE is the most fantastic, perfect hair colorist ever. She is a perfectionist, and really pays attention to what you want. I gave her a picture of a very specific color, and she matched it perfectly. I've tried sooo many colorists and JULIE is truly the best one!! Go see her!!
a kid for a manager?(nick) someone with no experience or personality why would this company want that? – I, stoped by for a haircut to realize,I, had to wait until they would help me.horrible attitudes.they think they are all that and they are not.the manager "Nick was rude to me.there is no friendly vibe here but a snobby feel that sucks.who would want bad service? I, want to go to a place where everyone is friendly, and nice and appreciates my business I, left and went to another salon in beverly hills.the corparate schould know about this.
Best Bob in Los Angeles!! – Katja is the best hairdresser in L.A. if you want your hair bobbed, period. I am 46 years old and have probably had this hairstyle since I was 5. (I know, sad). Of all the hairdressers that I have been to in this town, Katja was the only one that got it right, first time. I couldn't really afford an expensive Beverly Hills haircut (still can't), but decided to suck-it-up because she is so worth it. I have never looked back. (Not even in the mirror, don't have to double-check anymore). Everyone at the salon is really fun & nice and I feel like it's my little hair salon at home. If anyone ever complains about the noise in there, it will be because I'm there goofing with Katja! She really is the best. The true embodiment of Vidal Sasson's vision in L.A...
scoop on sassoon – If what you are looking for is a JOB as a hair stylist, this is the place! They're loyal to their staff, at the expense of their customers. If what you are looking for is to have your hair done the way that YOU want by an adept staff...run for Christophe or Frederic Fekaii, EVEN FANTASTIC SAM'S would be more accommodating then this ill-informed, calloused, motley group. I went there looking to have my lightened hair dyed to match my roots. I am pregnant and the Dr. told me I would have to stop highlighting my hair during my pregnancy as highlights can be toxic to a vulnerable fetus. I explained this on the phone before I drove 45 minutes to get there. But to my surprise, the colorist gave me a vacant stare and said she could give me the low lights to match my roots, but she insisted that she would HAVE to also add highlights. She argued that there should not be any risk to my baby and looked at me as if I were speaking tongue when I declined. Not only was she clueless, she tried to engage me in a bizarre power struggle. I left at once, sensing a costly, timely debacle around the corner. On my way out, I asked to speak to the manager hoping for some solace. (The regular manager, Ettiene was not there) His reaction (without talking with the colorist) was that she was clearly trying to "save the integrity of (my ) hair". When I told him that highlights are far more damaging to the hair then low-lights, not to mention damaging to the "integrity" of a small FETUS he gave me a vapid glare. I told him after a 45 minute drive I was disasapointed. He quipped that it was not ALL that long and nearly laughed in my face. His reaction to my condition as a pregnant woman was formidable, his reaction to me as a client was irresponsible and juvenile. DON T GO HERE!
great customer service – the stylists are all wonderfull but the coloring isnt the most fantastic it always ends up coming out different than what i ask for but they all hve me come back in to fix it complementry. the products are amazing expecially the hair treatment they give you after your service, its worth it. its also in a great area with convenient valet.
Wonderful cut and color – I am a model, and this is the only salon I have ever returned to after the first visit.
Katja does my cut. She's great because she listenes to what you want, and is open and honest about what would work, and what wouldn't work on you. I come in with ideas, pictures, and 'feelings' I want to have with my hair and she interprets them to work on me. She is also very personable, and in demand. Six of my friends also go to her, (male and female), and everyone's cuts are great.
Mimi does my color......and goodness, she is probably the best colorist in Los Angeles. She is honest about what is good for your hair, and does whatever is possible to keep your hair healthy and great-looking. I definately suggest her to go dark as well as light (I have done both), and their 'gloss treatment', is fabulous for darkened locks.
