Sabrina Hernandez is the best! – I sit down in Sabrina's chair and totally relax, because I know I can leave everything in her very capable hands and know I will walk out looking gorgeous. Fabulous style that fits my hectic life, gorgeous color and highlights. I would highly, highly, recommend her!
I agree...Kathy is fantastic! – About a month ago I got extensions put in by Kathy Babakhanyan at Joseph Lamar. Let me tell you...she is awesome! Not only is she sweet and attentive to what I wanted and my concerns, she also did a fantastic job on my glue-keratin extensions. I've had them put in before by someone else and had pieces fall out within a week. Not with Kathy...she did an excellent job putting them in. I
've also gone to her in the past for haircuts and color/highlights, so I highly recommend her! She will not let you leave unsatisfied!
Kathy is a great stylist – Kathy makes her customers feel special, she listens to what you want, she is honest, and works with her clients to figure out what is best. I have read some of the other reviews here about other stylists in the salon, and I really don't want to comment other than to say, the group seems dedicated, wants their customers to be happy...yes...some of the services are pricey, i.e. extensions...but again, be clear what you want, and what you will receive will be of value.. anyway, thanks Kathy, I love all three haircuts that I have received and I sent a friend in last weekend and she loves her hair too!! and I saw it, what an improvement...4 stars instead of 5 because it can be expensive, but in my case, worth it !!!
A truthful review – I just had a consult with Nanci Ortega for hair extensions and I scheduled a hair extension appointment with her for next week to apply the hair. A friend of mine mentioned that I should look for any reviews on Nanci and the salon before spending $2000 on hair extensions. Glad I did! It sounds like she gives everyone the same line. My quote was the same as Christina C, right down to her not charging by each extension like the other stylist in the salon! I made sure I read all the reviews before deciding it would be best to cancel my appointment. What made it easy to believe the 2 bad reviews on this stylist was simply reading the reviews from Michele M who posted on Yelp. And Jo M who posted the identical review on Yelp as she did here. Michele raves about Nanci being so fabulous and being her extension extraordinaire for the past 3 years and then goes on and on about how amazing everyone in this salon is...then why did she wait 3 years before posting such inflated review!
In my opinion Michele is trying to hard to promote this salon which is what makes it so obvious that its someone in the salon who wrote the review.
Moving on to the review from Jo M. I have read Christina's review and no where in it does it mention that she was burned. Sounds more like Jo M is the one who needs to get her facts straight and stop fabricating BS reviews!
I will say if I ever need a bikini wax I know where to go now! Now my dilemma is finding a stylist who is truly gifted with extensions!
NAncy Ortega is the best fantastic Extensions – Nancy is truly as good as it gets for extensions I've had them done at other places for far more money for crappy jobs. She teaches others how to do extensions and her precision in placement and fullness are fantastic. My own hair has never been healthier. I've sent numerous people to her all have loved her. This Christina person is insane. In ten years with Nancy she is the first person I've ever heard complain about Nancy and I am at the salon bi-weekly for services. In fact I drive 10 miles to get to Nancy preferring her over closer salons in Hollywood and Beverly HIlls. I can't imagine scientifically how cold fusion could have "burned" Christina or anyone. Sorry she had a bad experience but she is a vocal minority not a valid source if the majority opinion regarding Nancy's terrific services. Year in year out Nancy is the best in every way.
Worst salon experience I ever had! – A must read for anyone considering hair extensions from Nanci Ortega!
Joseph Lamar Salon advertises the SO CAP COLD FUSION method but melts the bonds instead! Nanci Ortega pulled a bate and switch on me and over charged me and damaged my hair! During your consult she'll tell you she does not charge like the other stylist who charge $10 per extension instead she tells you that she charges $250 the first 25 and a additional $200 for the next 25. Make sure you bring a friend to count your extensions when she is done! She charged me $650.00 for 50 extensions that I had to pay another stylist to remove because they were put in so poorly. The damages are another story!
Ivan Montero is THE MAN – I have been a loyal customer of Ivan Montero for several years now - he and the rest of the crew at Joseph Lamar are extremely friendly. Be sure to make your desired appointments at least a couple of weeks in advance. They do welcome walk-ins, but if you know who you want, and when you want to go in, its best to make an appointment. Ask for Ivan - he's the best! Parking behind the salon is very limited, and the residential streets have limited parking during the day time. Try to park on Magnolia Blvd. to avoid getting a ticket.
