You know the place you've been getting your hairs cut is the best when you sit down next to John Travolta! I never make an apt so see whoever can see me, and have liked all my cuts. The place is clean, funky, and don't let the pink sign fool you - they know how to make a guy look his best.
I will never go anywhere else – I called on a saturday and they were able to squeeze me in the very next day in the a.m. I couldn't get Lacey who was recommended to me but I got Kelly, who, in my opinion, was just as awesome as Lacey was described as being. I got an arm massage with oils while i waited in between my cut and color. Kelly did exactly what i wanted to a T, and i looked even better than the girl in the magazine i brought in to show her. After my cut, i got a color that was specifically picked out by Kelly that i never would have thought to go with, but looked amazing. i have never had so many compliments on my haircut and color and my co-workers did not even recognize me. i came in looking dumpy and pale, and walked out feeling and looking like a rockstar!!!
the WORST cut and color/highlights I've ever had! – I'm writing this because I'm still angry about the money I wasted going here and how messed up my hair was when I left. Let me start by saying I'm VERY PICKY about my hair and pickier about who does it. I've been to some of the best salons in L.A., shelling out in one visit enough to feed a family of five, and unfortunately that doesn’t translate into a great cut and color. In other words, I’ve had my hair F^*ked up by some of L.A.’s finest!
Since the reviews for Frenchy's were favorable (and since it was nearby and since there was street parking), I decided to go. I met with Lacy who was nice and calm and she seemed to understand what I wanted. But instead of highlights I got stripes and she made a few snips at the ends and charged me for a haircut. When I called a week later and asked to speak with her, the receptionist said “what is this regarding?” I thought: is she serious or stupid? and realized she was both so I simply said, “um, my hair.” She barked “Lacy can’t take you today.” I reiterated that I’d like to speak with her. I thought: “Who made her Lacy’s bouncer?” and when she asked me again what it was regarding, I said “Look, just have her call me.” Except that she never has.
I’ve never before said what I’m about to say: This place sucks!
lacy is amazing and you will love her! – Lacy is very personable. I like that she always asks exactly what you want to have done but will also will offer her opinion to help with your decision.
monday afternoon's bird's nest – Its the worst haircut I've had in a long time! My betty page waves were turned into a half-dryed mop that turned into a frizz ball as soon as I walked out the door. The girl that was cutting my hair was doing someone else's color at the same time, so she was running back and forth between the two of us. She gave me a crappy cut that took less than ten minutes and dryed it flat with absoutly NO style. I guess she was in a hurry. Put it in a pony tail when I got home. Had way better cuts at fantastic sams when I was a student. For 55 bucks I would expect much more.
SARAH IS THE BEST! – I LOVE Frenchy's and particularly SARAH. She's a perfectionist who really takes her time to make sure your hair cut is even and meticulous. I've not had any color services done yet, but that's coming very soon. The atmosphere is retro and super chill. The girls that wash your hair give great scalp massages which is the icing on the cake. Actually everyone is super nice. I would recommend Frenchy's Salon and SARAH to anyone looking for great service and a great cut.
Kristen's Fantastic – This was my first time with Kristen as my previous stylist has left town. Let's just say I now have a new stylist for a great cut. (I hear she does good color too). Kristen was very thorough and kept much of the length as I asked but gave my fine hair lots of volume and bounce, with flattering layers in the front that frame my face well and fall nicely when my hair's pulled back in a ponytail. Everyone is very friendy, the coffee's great (i'm a big coffee lover) and best of all the prices are fantastic!! I've been to some of the best salons in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, but I keep coming back to Frenchy's.
Lacey Rocks My World! – I have been to my fair share stylists but Lacey has been the only one I've felt compelled to go back to time and time again. I found this place when I was living in Burbank but now that I've moved out to the Westside, I still make the drive back into the Valley to see Lacey. Anytime I go in, I know my hair will come out looking awesome and even if I can't see her for a few months, I know my hair will grow out and still look fantastic. My mom is usually my harshest critic when it comes to haircuts but even she is asking me if she can come see my stylist after seeing my haircuts. Not only do you get a great haircut but a great deal as well. I used to pay $90+ in Beverly Hills for a so-so haircut but now I get a guaranteed GREAT haircut for just $55 (plus tip of course, but that's a small price to pay for someone who does such a great job). You will not regret going to see Lacey!
LACEY .... Read this... you will thank me. – Right so, everyone knows finding a new hair dresser is the WORST.
I read on this site and some others that lacey is the gal to see (you would not believe how many sites and people rant and rave about her.)
I was pretty sure I would not get in with her, because of all the great things said... but the lady on the phone was so great, and she squeezed me in.
I have never spoken to someone that was so accommodating.
I came in scared, because I have had my hair ruined in the past. Lacey sat me in her chair, and could sense my apprehension. We TALKED throughly about what I wanted.... which is a first.... she actually listened.
I got an amazing scalp massage.
She started to cut my hair, and after about 30 seconds I was at complete ease.
She explained EVERYTHING she was doing to me... which made me feel so much better... (you tell them an inch and they take three.... she did JUST what I asked.)
Soon I was laughing. Lacey has a way with people... I was laughing so hard from the things she was saying. I actually ended up having a FUN time.
When she was done... it was JUST what I wanted. I was so shocked.
I called my friend as soon as I left, and ten minutes later... she had an appointment with lacey, and the next week told me how amazed she was too.
I can not tell you enough how great my experience was.
I have never written a review.... but this was such a find... I had to share it with the world.
Seriously, Go see Lacey.
Run dont walk to Julianas skilled hands!!! – I have gone through countless stylists in recent years. None of them where as skillful and awesome as Juliana at Frenchys. She was personable and attentive. She even through in a free scalp message. I just hope I can still get in to see her after all these great reviews on here.
