A true hair stylist artist – Vivian Brik is an artist with hair. I haven't had a hair stylist since the 80's (still recovering from the shock of the style in the 80s) because I haven't found anyone who provides a hair cut that compliments me. Vivian is the 1st stylist that actually gave me a change in hair style which is modern, matches my face and suits my personality. Unlike many stylists who are so impressed with the work they did but the cut didn't match me at all, thus I never return to those stylists. I've been returning to Vivian for years. She provides an amazing scalp and neck massage that relaxes you to a dreamy state. She is very creative and makes excellent suggestions for style changes that compliments your face and life style. She's beautiful, friendly and a great stylist among other skills (make-up artist, wedding hair do's, floral arrangements and more). See for yourself, you'll know what I mean.
Go with Cristy Valle! – I've followed Cristy around since 2005 and I've never been dissatisfied with her work! Her technique is fast and gives a beautiful cut. She's also gentle on tenderheads like me and the best for those of us w/ curls, too.
Also gives great recommendations on products.
Best Thermal Japanese Straightening and Cut Ever!!! – Living in West Los Angeles for 18 years has given me enough experience with hair salons to write a book. I have been to the big Allure rated 40 chair high-end salons on La Brea to the quainter salons along Abbot Kinney to know a good stylist when I see them. After seeing the results from my friend?s hair getting the Japanese Thermal Straightening, I was inquisitive to get the same sleek and beautiful results to my hair. When walking my dog I coincidently walked into Jennifer Carson's salon and immediately fell in love her space and work. She has been a stylist for fifteen years and is just as bubbly and energetic as though you were her first client. Her salon has an amazing energy with simplistic style and architecture with a Zen ambiance to match. She set up a free consultation where she examined my hair and informed me on the whole process of the Japanese Thermal Straightening as well as instructions to care for my hair after the straightening. I have never been so impressed by any stylist before. Jennifer was so personable and meticulous with my hair that it was pleasure sitting in her styling chair. I emerged after four hours feeling like a model with a new persona and outlook on life. My hair has never looked better and my self-esteem has never been higher. The Thermal Straightening was the best thing I ever did for myself because it made more hair sexier and 100% more manageable. I have gotten many compliments and have referred many people to Salon amba whom have all been just as pleased and satisfied as I am. If you want an amazing hair experience that will transform your life, go to Salon amba to reach your full potential and achieve inner and outer beauty.
