Overall great experience – After having a terrible experience at another salon (A La Mode Hair Studio in Glendale--who delete any negative reviews on their Citysearch website by the way) I went to Armand at Vidal Sassoon. He was very friendly, very open to hearing what I wanted, and an incredibly skilled hair stylist. I now have one of the best cuts of my life, and I've gotten numerous compliments on it the past two days. I think I've found my new favorite salon...
Great Haircuts and friendly service! – I recently visited vidal sassoon for a haircut. first of all i was greeted by very friendly people. i then met my hairdresser EZRA who was very nice. we went upstairs where i got my hair washed . the girl was also very friendly. Ezra did everything i asked for and did a perfect job, in fact ,people have already complimented my on my long hair with layers. it feels so much lighter now i can actually wear it down! She cut my hair fast and made it look great by straightening it with a flat iron.My hair looks great and i am very happy about it. I will definately go back for my next haircut.
Horrible experience. – I decided to give myself a New Year treat and go to a fancy Beverly Hills salon for a cut and style. I was ready for a new perspective. I paid extra for a senior stylist, Armand. He said he would "take off the bottom layer" of my long layered haircut. He also kept repeating he "would take ten years off me.". He never actually stated what it was he was doing. He never actually said, "Hey, how 'bout if I totally cut off all your long hair, cut your hair as short as if will physically go in the back, leave it flat at the sides, and keep the bangs just long enough so they fall completely in your eyes! And, of course, you won't be able to style it yourself! I couldn't tell what he was doing, but could only feel cold air on my neck. I ended up with a short dated haircut. I wish he would have told me ahead of time what his plan was. It never occurred to me that a hairstylist would give a first time client such a radical haircut without at least checking with them if that was at least what they wanted. It has been over a year and a half. It is still growing out. It was a miserable experience. I will never go back. I found the attitude and demeanor of the stylist smug and arrogant. Not only did he not "take ten years off me", I think he added a few years. It was by far, the worst hair cutting/styling experience of my life. I left the salon in shock and in tears. Buyer beware.......
Citysearch Editorial Review – Best known for the geometric cuts made famous by its founder, the salon still receives requests for Vidal's trademark five-point bob. Katja Fenchel, the creative director, styles hair for fashion shows and the Oscars. Although the starkly modern decor is a bit cold, the staff is warm and friendly and clients can count on expertly crafted cuts and innovative color techniques. Along with trend-setting haircuts, services include hair color, perms, intensive conditioning treatments and nail care. (Regulars rave about the long-lasting pedicures). For those who can't afford the top stylists' fees, Sassoon stylists-in-training are a more reasonably priced alternative.
Perfect Cuts and Color – This is my second time to Vidal Sassoon's BH location. Am highly particular when it comes to finding an expert stylist -- have tried many of the best in NYC, SF, and Paris. Rarely satisfied.
Katja, the creative director, gave me two unbelievable cuts -- just what I wanted yet couldn't quite express! Unsatisfied with my color from Licari and requesting a recommendation from someone at VS, she walked me upstairs to meet Mimi. Mimi instantly gave me her ideas, which I loved.... I scheduled a time, and Mimi did exactly the colors I wanted....
The whole ambiance there is terrific -- very friendly, lots of assistants eager to make you comfortable.... and Katja is a kick!! Very humorous -- from Germany, laid-back and fun.
