Not worth the hassle. The staff are rude if you do not want to pay for your hair in advance. They continually raise prices. Service with a haughty attitude. Frank used to work at Fred Segal and charged a phenomenal amount of money for a mediocre cut with highlights. This place is shallow, unfriendly and unkind. You would be better off going to Vidal Hair Salon. Don't let these highway robbers take your wallet. Keep your money and you will be happy you did the right thing.
Changed my life – I'm not one to write reviews or pay mind to them. I went her because I love "Keeping up the the Kardasians". I've been reading her blogs and saw they went here. So, I felt if anyone as critical as they are go here it must be good. The stylist were very nice. I felt they listened to me. Ended up get the Brazilian Blowout and a haircut. They were right the Brazilian Blowout Changed My Life. I used to spend 90 minutes blowing out my hair, now I'm ready in less than 30 min. sometimes I don't even blow it out! I used to not swim when I was at a party - get my hair wet. On Memorial weekend I got my hair wet! This is a big thing for me. Thanks guys!
Beyond Worth It!!! – I went to see the owner Frank because I love how he makes Kim, Klohe, and Kourtney Kardasian's hair. I have long dark hair and was so relieved he did not try and make me add "Blonde" highlights.
I thought he was very professional and not an "in-your-face" type of stylist. I loved his assistant, Molly.
My highlights looked great. My cut and blowout was what I expected... I looked like Kim in the carl's jr add (which he did).
I really felt taken care of and special by him and his staff, even though I'm just an average Jane.
not worth it – the owner brought someone over to style my hair which i never asked for, then had the audacity to charge me for it. i was so shocked i just paid it but i should have said something
the owner only cares if he thinks you are important enough to spend time with.
seemed really arrogant and spent about 3 minutes doing my highlights and made his asst do most of the work and checking.
my highlights were only average. have had my hair done at much better places for much less
the atmosphere here both in looks and attitude is cold
on the plus side, parking is great, good location near the 10 freeway and can browse the shops nearby afterwards
Frank Studio is Beautiful! – Allure really came through on their top salon rating this time! Frank Studio is a beautiful, open space, and they made me feel at home as soon as I walked in the door. I had the pleasure of having Sean James as my stylist . He was fantastic. He clearly knows his "hair" and what works for you as an individual-- I definitely felt catered to the entire time. Not only is Sean super friendly but the entire salon team were close (something you don't see very often, for sure!)
Love it! – I met Frank through a friend at the Gym. I was thinking of going to him and I know I was impeding on his private time, which I hate to do. Its like asking a Doctor at a party to make a diagnosis... So, I made an appointment at his salon to have a consultation. Thought that would be the correct thing to do. I went in and he was so attentive to what I was telling him. He knew exactly what I wanted. I knew I could not afford to do everything with him and he made sure I was in the best hands for what I could afford. I had Ken do my color, which was amazing and affordable. Then I had Frank do my hair cut. I just felt so great when I left. I really felt like I looked the best ever. Everyone was amazing. Thank you for making me feel good.
My Husband is Hot now...Thanks Frank – I just want to say thank you to Frank and his staff. It has taken me years to get my husband away from that $12 barber hair "chop shop" . He finally went into Frank to get his hair cut. I know he did not want to pay the $$$ but it was going to be the couch or the bed... his choice. Frank gave my husband the best hair cut. My husband looked like a hot movie star. Thank you for making him look so great, and giving him executive service, I've told you in person thank you but I needed to do more. XXXXOOO
Thank you ALLURE! – I walked out looking so amazin, I needed to rush home change out of my yoga gear and get dressed up so I didn't waste this amazing feeling. The service was amazing the place was modern and so clean. Frank was so sweet and made me feel special. His assistant Karina was so attentitive. ALLURE's write up was spot on! I had the best 4th of July ever cuz I felt like a queen! I got so many coodos on my color! WOW.
One Stop Shop for Beauty/Wellness/Hair!!! – I love this place! It is my one stop Beauty/Wellness/Hair place. I just love how I can get everything done in one visit, no driving around all day searching for parking... paying for parking. I just go there and get it all done. And they are all great at what they do. First of the best waxer EVER is Germana. She is from Brazil and uses her own home made honey wax--- you can eat it the wax thats how natural it is. No pain and she is so professional, I felt like I was at my doctors office how sterile and clean everything was! Amazing. Then there is Dr. Anne Cooper she gives the best facials and she is a nutritionist/Chiropractor! I have the occasional acne and she has helped me control this. And Chantal who does my brows...man she is hot. I get my extensions (yes I'll admit to the fake hair) done by Michele. She is so fast! She does all the girls from Danity Kane. The quality of the hair is great and no one can tell that I have them. I'm never in pain and my hair never falls out. Then I go to Frank for my color & cuts. He is truly amazing. My hair looks like I have natural blonde hair (cuz I don't, trust me I don't). First he cuts wet with his scissors and then he blowdrys my hair out and further sculpts with his razor. Truly unreal, a true artistl! When I was in there last I saw Gwenith P. and I swear my color looked like hers. Everyone is so nice and attentive. I have never gotten attitude there. I'm always accommodated when I need an appointment. A loud shout out to FRANK STUDIO for making me look HOT!
OMG!!! I'm in Love with FRANK – I LOVE MY HAIR!!!!!! It is not something I have ever said before but, WOW!!! First off I walked in the door shamefully, due to the currant state of my hair. I thought OK they will have me here for 5 hours and it will probably cost me upwards of my mortgage but the price of beauty is "priceless". I sat down with Frank, himself and he calmed my fears instantly. Within 2 hours my mess of a mop was shiny and ready and worthy of a hair commercial! The price was less than I thought and the service across the board was great. I have found my guy and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!! I always felt small when I went in to a new salon but all my worries are gone now. I LOVE FRANK!
