My day-getaway for hair therapy – I've had some hair horror stories over the years and dos that are better erased from memory. Kelly Peach is sent from above, finally someone who understands how to tame my damaged hair and give me looks that actually work with at home!
Kelly gave me a Brazilian Blowout on my wavy, fried hair, and I will never look back. 3 months of shiny, manageable hair

Great Hair Stylist – I have always had a tough time finding someone who can do a great job at styling my hair. I searched City Search and found this place. I was so satisfied with the outcome. I highly recommend them.
Love this salon! – I've been to this salon a couple times now and LOVE it. The layout is really open and airy and the staff is really nice, not snobby at all. I've had a cut and highlights there with a girl named Hilary and she was sooo good! She also did the Brazilian Blowout treatment (I'm not sure that's exactly what it's called) on my hair a few months back and it was AAAAAMAZING!
Nordic Hair Extensions by Hilary Smith – So I went into see Hilary with a short bob (and had blonde hair). I wanted a drastic change- to be brunette with long hair. I was SO nervous, but I knew that it would be a good change. Hilary assured me that the color would be great for my skin tone, and she matched me up to a beautiful brunette shade. I was also very nervous about getting extensions (I had never had them). I was in complete awe by the end of our appointment. The Nordic Hair Extensions that she recommended (and ended up using) were so natural, and easy to maintain. People still don't know I have extensions! The best part about Nordic Hair is that you can re-use the hair each time (and you can keep the hair for up to a year!), which is the grand scheme of things, saves you SO much money. Hilary was so comforting, and clearly knew what she was doing. I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair, and I could not imagine going anywhere else to have my hair done. She made sure the extensions and color were what I wanted (ever weeks after the initial appointment). It was nice to have someone actually take the initiative and follow through with their work. Props to P & T and Ms. Hilary :)
worst experience ever!!!!!!!! – I went to Preece & Toff salon at Fred Segal for hair extension consultation with Hilary. During which she suggested color, highlights and best technique for my hair type with a color swatch chart. I said, I hope this isn’t the extensions you plan to use because it not match my wavy hair. She assured me that the hair swatches were straightened for the charts and it would be a perfect match once done. she quoted me $750 and $210 for color. I was weary about scheduling an appointment before seeing the final product but thought that they are a reputable salon with highly skilled professionals. Well I wish I would've listened to myself, the extensions were identical to the synthetic hair on the sample chart. Five hours later, horrified with my hair and the experience I was slammed with with a $1450 bill for their services. Please do YOURSELF and POCKET BOOKS A FAVOR, never use this salon for any services, you'll be sorry, you did!!!!
Atrocious customer service – I've never experienced anything like Fred Segal. I purchased a $150.00 shirt from their website, but never received the shirt or any explanation for why my order was not filled. I called the store and spoke to a rather rude woman who took down my information and told me that someone would contact me with my order's whereabouts. When no one called me back, I sent Fred Segal both a letter and an e-mail asking for an explanation. I've never received a reply. Given that Fred Segal has treated me, a new customer, with nothing but contempt, I cannot recommend the place.
LYOLA's Talent, Attention and Style Make Her THE Most Unique – LYOLA Is the best Stylist Ever! I would never trust anyone else with my hair! It must first be said here that I come from a looooong line of Hairstylists and Salon Owners. I'm Italian and my Family's full of them. You either cut, clean or cook and it's been the former that's made me somewhat of a hair snob. This is not to say that I use a lot of products or take a lot of time with my hair, quite the contrary actually. I really just want to wake up and look divine, feel good, have things be easy and yet super special! It's rare to find a Stylist who can give you an insane cut on it's own, without a bevy of products to make it look the way it did when you left the Salon. And to also have a "do" that grows out equally as awesome, never having to deal with that "in-between" stage some cuts can give you! I am a bit of a pain when it comes to finding a stylist; I like to interview, dig deep, understand their vision, make sure I'm comfortable. It's annoying, but I'm picky. When I first met LYOLA I knew instantly that I wanted her to be my Hairstylist. She is SO wonderful! All around. Unique, Open, Uber Talented, Wonderfully Inspirational to me (Ly's cut my hair for 7 or more years now!) and just "gets it!" I have never had a cut so suited for me, so rad, so easy, so sassy, sophisticated and brings attention to me in ways I never would have imagined. I am not someone who thrives on attention, but when the energy directed toward you makes you feel so alive, you can't help but enjoy it! Lyola has styled me MANY different ways over the past years, and my newest do has been my favorite. The time she takes to not only fully grasp the state of your hair, but also taking into account your lifestyle, your job, your level of comfort using products, WHO YOU ARE is really, really unique and what always keeps me coming back. It's addictive, the looks she can bring to you. I can't get enough!! Just this past week I got an insane deal at my Bodyshop on my car, was told multiple times that "I'm adorable", and at least 4 people told me that "my Boyfriend is lucky to have me in his life!" I am so grateful to hear these words!!! I say this not to be egoic, but simply because I had JUST gotten a new do, was feeling awesome, and I KNOW this translated out to the world sheer confidence, joy and delight!!! I FEEEEEL good and THIS people notice. This feels wonderful! I couldn't recommend Lyola enough! I place so much trust in her and know that she is always improving, learning, honing her craft through seminars, classes, means of her own and listening to the world around her. I have so much admiration and trust that I ALWAYS only want her to do whatever she wants to do!!! And to me, that says A LOT! I am blessed to have her in my life! Yeah!!!!! THANK YOU LYOLA!!!!
Carlos - Best Stylist Ever! – Carlos is a great stylist and will give you exactly what you are looking for. He takes time during the consultation and listens carefully to what you want. The final result is perfect! I've been going to Carlos for years and no one else can cut my hair as good as he can. The hair cut is so good that it even grows out nicely. He takes his time to make sure that nothing was missed and pays close attention to detail. Carlos is awesome! He makes you feel comfortable right away and is very easy to talk to. You leave the salon feeling beautiful and happy. The salon itself is clean and comfortable. Its an upscale salon without the upscale attitude. I highly recommend it.
Crystal highly recommended – Crystal totally helped me to a great new hair style takes time and care tobmake it look great!
