Sometimes, to looks his best, a guy needs the skill of a woman. I've started coming to Floyd's 99 Barbershop to see Lauren, who came highly recommended from a good friend of mine. She's been cutting my hair for a few months now, and it has never been better. She knows how to style guy's hair with a lady's point of view, i.e. she's going to make you look handsome. The key to cut is the consultation - she listens to what you want and then accomplishes it expertly.
Riffe's Your Guy For Good Haircuts – Every place I have gone to get a haircut in LA is not only $60 dollars or more, but the people giving the cuts just tend to do their own thing, ignoring what you ask them to do. Riffe listens, is personable and gives you the detailed cut you ask for at less than half the price of most Hollywood stylists and barbers. They say in life it's crucial that you have a good lawyer, accountant, doctor...and barber. -John Shires
but stay away from Riffe – went to Floyds for the first time in December and LOVED it. the guy who cut my hair is no longer there but i decided to go again, thinking others working there would be equally cool, interesting, and creative. well they passed me to Riffe. what a disaster. he's totally full of himself. and he destroyed my bangs. not that hard to cut bangs is it? truth is, i could have handled a so so haircut from someone who was nice and didn't act like he was gods gift to women and hair. i'd rather wait 3 hours than get another cut from this guy. my hair is boring, my bangs look stupid, and i spent 20 minutes listening to a self-absorbed moron. don't do it!
Sometimes you don't even get what you pay for! – I got my first and last cut by Riffe! I took a risk trying a new stylist and learned my lesson. I could?ve cut my own hair at home and gotten the same result for free. Not only was my cut boring and lacking style, he was full of himself and had inappropriate comments. I don?t need a flirty chatterbox, I need someone who will listen to what I ask for and give me a great haircut. Melrose is overrated as is this barbershop and Riffe.
Great men's cut by John @ the Melrose Branch – Great cut by John (or maybe Jon) I forgot the spelling but have his card. Will surely go back again. $21 for a great men's cut that was stylish yet professional for work.
John spent a while even using a straight-razor w/ warm shaving cream on my neck.
Again very professional stylist I would fully recommend!
good cheap haircut – Nate fixed my hair after getting a bad cut on melrose before going there. This place is busy and open which was kind of cold. But my haircut is now fixed thanks to Nate the guy who fixed it.
Cool, Rockin' place....GREAT cut by Riffe!! – I gotta say, as a female, I was a little skeptical going to a "barbershop" for a cut, but w/ the economy so crappy, I've been watching my spending. And I gotta say I was totally AMAZED by my new do!! Riffe is the newest stylist there & he simply worked magic on my difficult hair. I paid less than $30 for a $200 cut & style!! Best deal in town ladies. The shop has that really cool, edgy Melrose vibe & they are rockin out all day. And it doesn't hurt that Riffe's easy on the eyes & a good conversationalist! I'm sending all my friends to him! Hurry up & see him before the secret gets out!
Terrific Stylist-customer connection – Nate is more than a stylist - he is your personal cheerleader, confidante, and pal for the whole time you are under his expert care. He makes your time in his chair fun while he asks all the right questions. I am touchy about someone saying they are just going to trim off the split ends....then they proceed to whack off about 5 inches! Not Nate - if you ask for a slight trim, that is what you get. He makes suggestions but does not impose his tastes on you. He is quick, too. Hip, relaxed atmosphere appropriate to Hollywood. Well worth the money.
SOOOO much more pretentious than they deserve to be – OMG, I hate this place. I went here three years ago and hated it then, but I guess i forgot and got desperate and went again. Everyone there is totally snotty, especially the girl at the front desk. Do NOT Believe the prices on the website -- once they are done with your cut/style/color/whatever, oops, it's $30 more because you have long hair/dry scalp/whatever. This was happening to the person in front of me while I was waiting to pay, then -- guess what -- same thing happened to me. How was the work? Sucked! I told the stylist I wanted my hair to be blowdried really full, and since it's naturally curly, that's easy to do (um...I can do it and I have no professional training). It was flat against my head, with no body when she was done. Also, how about some air conditioning, you cheapskates. It was 95 degrees out and I'm getting my hair blowdried --- even the stylist was sweating. This place was gross and does not deserve your business, unless all you care about is being uber-hip. That's all they care about, definitely not about providing good, friendly service at the quoted price.
Awesome Cut and Color- why would you go anywhere else? ? – Dear other consumers:
Just have to tell you how much I loved this place. Just moved here. . . didnt know anyone or where to get my hair cut- ahhh!
Well long story short- kinda- found Floyd's Barbershop (Yes! they do women) and I am in Love!!!
Went to the Melrose shop- Front Desk guy was so pleasant and put me at ease that the stylists and colorists knew what they were doing and I would be taken care of.
Well- I was! My stylist- Bryan was awesome. Took such good care of me. He gave me the best color I have ever had. Not to mention- I have curly hair and sometimes it can be hard to cut. No way! Worked out great. Love my cut and can't stop looking at my hair.
So very pleased, in case you can't tell. I would rec going here for a fun cut and color- def get color done that way you can request an appointment.
To all those people hating on this place- maybe you just didnt tell them what you wanted- ever think of that you undecisive people!?
plus -Loved the music and posterwall- no boring white walls like most salons.
Love Floyds and I am going again soon! : )
WORST HAIRCUT EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – oh my goodness, i have to say i've had some bad haircuts in my time, but none have ever made me cry. i have NO idea what he was thinking when he cut my hair. i brought a picture to show along the lines of what i wanted, simple shaggy cut...let me tell you it was a straight cut along the bottom, and a second layer on top, staight across. it was awful!!!! i quickly drove to the store picked up bobby pins(i could no longer put my hair in a ponytail) i didn't wear my hair down for two months!
if there was a way to give half a star or minus stars i would have. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!
