I was walking by Ambiance the other day, and peeked my head in to find out about the rates. Tom, the owner, let me know for first time customers there you can get a cut and highlights for $99. Amazing deal!!! I had my appointment today, and got blonde highlights. I asked for them to be very natural looking, and Tom did a fantastic job! He is really very talented. The cut is also great, he knew exactly how to compliment my face shape. I will be returning in 3 months for sure!
i love this place! i have been coming to get my haircut from tommy (owner) for five years now and i wouldn't go anywhere else! in 2007 i walked in the door of the salon and told tommy i wanted "something different". it had been about five or six years since i had cut my hair at all and for some reason i trusted tommy instantly. that day he transformed my hair and my restored my confidence in about an hour and has continued to do so for the last five years. i have also gone to both of the other stylists for up-dos and they have never failed me. do yourself a favor...go to ambiance, ask for tommy, and put yourself in the hands of someone with style and experience!
I have really difficult hair to cut (I have fine hair and like a precision cut bob) and have had a few hairdressers just ruin it. I moved here from out of state and going through the process of finding a new hairdresser is nerve racking. I thought I found one in Hermosa, but after she messed up my hair I was back to the drawing board. I drove by Ambiance one day and was lured in by the $99 cut/color special and good reviews about Tom (the owner) on Citysearch. Those reviews were right on! I came in, read him my checklist, and let him go to work. He completely fixed my hair and did exactly what I wanted. Perfect! I've been going there now for almost 2 years and am always very happy with my cuts. He's been cutting hair for years and is a true master. Cutting hair is truly an art to him and you can see it in his technique, precision, and excellent consultations. If you're new to the area like I was or just need a new hairdresser, I highly recommend him. Tom is the best!!
Lora is very professional – I had frequented several salons in the Santa Monica area for years, Ambiance, a full service salon, is by far the best I've been to. Everyone is extremely nice and accommodating. I've never had a place where each time my haircut has come out perfect.
If you can, request Lora for your apointment or walkin. You won't be disappointed.
best haircut ever – I have curly hair and its hard to layer. Tommy at Ambiance was the first to get my layers so they fell right. I will never go somewhere unfamiliar and get a bad cut again.
Also the eyebrow girl knows exactly how to shape my eyebrows to my face and that is really hard to find.
I recommend highly!!!
Best haircut of my entire life – A salon that is even pet friendly. They insisted my dog could come in and sit beside me even though he was perfectly fine waiting tied up outside. Then they smothered him with petting and treats.
Not to mention they give the best haircut I have ever had in my entire life. I am not sure how to describe the technique except they go through like 3 different stages (not just once or twice like most salons.)
After an invigorating shampoo,
they then do first the blunt cut,
then they go through your entire head and layer it,
and then finally, go through all your hair again to texturize it with.
Of course they finish with a blow dry and style, so it is like getting 5 treatments in one!
This is the ONLY salon where I have gone two years in a row and it does not matter if I don't know who is doing my hair because the owner Tom has trained them all to do hair awesomely...
My Hair Stylist is a Miracle Worker! – For the past three years, I have dreaded going to a hair salon. I did the whole coloring at home thing until my hair was like a bird's nest. After my recent "chop job" I decided to read some reviews online and that is how I found Tom at Ambiance Hair Studio. I went in with rather frizzy, frazzled hair and came out with a beautiful new bouncy, shiny style that took years off me (so my husband says!). Thanks Tom, I will be coming back on a regular basis!
Best Stylist I ever knew – I have been getting my hair cut by Tommy for a while and I love him! Everytime I try to take a short cut with a cheaper salon or cut my hair myself (what an idiot) I have to get back to Tommy to fix my blunders. He has made my hair look fantastic for as long as I've been going to him and I am still getting compliments on the cut. Plus he's a really nice, professional and he really cares about his customers. Great work Tommy!
Lora is the Greatest – Went to Ambiance with out an appointment and Lora was my stylist. She listened to me as I explained what I wanted, a cut and style, a last minute emergency. All came out perfect.
After years of telling stylists what I wanted and always
ended up disappointed.
It was refreshing to have a stylist actually listen and do a great job.
The Best color I've ever had. – Tommy is a genius with color. Everyone knows a good hair colorist is a rare thing, but now i have a great one.
