Friendly atmosphere and wonderful stylist-Nicole!!!! – It was by coincidence that I happened to stumble on this salon when I was in Santa Monica. Its a cute modern salon on Santa Monica Blvd (near 3rd street promenade). The salon actually takes walk ins and has an esthetician as well!!! There is one particular stylist that cut my hair, Nicole. She is very friendly and professional. I have been back to her ever since. She takes the time to listen to my particular needs and she has exceeded my expectations everytime. In general, the salon is easy going and friendly. I feel very comfortable there. I would reccomend Nicole and this salon to everyone.
Best Hair Sylist I've had and great atmosphere – I had frequented several salons in the Santa Monica & Venice areas for years, Forme is by far the best I've been to. Everyone is extremely nice and accommodating. I've never had a place where each time my haircut has come out perfect. If you have the chance ask for NADA, but I'm sure they have a roster of talented stylists. I'm very fickle with my hair and thought I would let people know that Forme is definitely a place to go.
5 star customer service.... – I was in the Santa Monica area searching for a salon. Forme was recommended by a fellow swimmer.
I walked in and was greeted with a smile and a true concern for my concerns. I asked to speak with a stylist who could just give me an idea of what to do with the terrible haircut I had received about 3 weeks prior. Ryan was referred to me and he sat down with me to discuss the present situation of my hair..expecting recommendations only, he asked if he could snip my hair a bit here and there..he basically cleaned up my disaster and wouldn't accept any compensation...He know has a client once my hair is long enough to trim and color...he was just great..Thanks Ryan, I will recommend you to others! And I will be back!
Magnificant – Forme salon is one of the best salons that I have been to. The salon creates a very classy ambiance with a very courteous staff. My hair dresser Nada Vue always performs a very percise creation with my hair. I do not trust just any hair dresser with my hair but she throughly understands my wants and incorporates that with her creativity and I always receive praises for how wonderful my hair looks. I can only say so much you have to try it to beleive it.
You'll never go anywhere else! – Forme salon has a GREAT, casual atmosphere with very professional people. Both men and women alike will enjoy great cuts and color. My hair is VERY fine and I'm really picky about who cuts it. All the stylists at Forme are experienced, well-trained and collaborate well with each other. Ixie is an absolute miracle worker, but you also can't go wrong with any other stylist there. They even take walk-ins and it's in a great location near Santa Monica Library. You'll never go anywhere else after you visit Forme Salon! Oh, and the waxing and massages are great too!
Amazing full service salon and spa in Santa Monica!! – I created an account on Citysearch just to write this review. I recently moved to Encino, CA from Iowa City, IA. One of my major priorities was to find a hair stylist/colorist around the area, as soon as possible. I began my Citysearch for salons in Santa Monica because although I don't live there, I start work in August at UCLA-Santa Monica. will be around that area a lot. During the search, I came across this wonderful salon, Forme. It received excellent reviews, so I decided to make an appointment. I was nervous, though. I planned to start fresh with a whole new cut and color. Looking at different hair styles in magazines, I decided on a shoulder-length bob and a darker hair color. This new cut would require 8 inches gone! I hoped I chose the right place to receive this new haircut. My friend and I both made appointments for the same time, but with different stylists. I forgot the name of her stylist, but my stylist's name was Doreen. The one thing I loved about this place was that you can chose stylists from level I to level IV, or owners. Being a poor post-college graduate who hasn't started work yet and just moved to one of the most expensive parts of the country, I couldn't spend too much on my hair at the moment. Well, I must say, the moment I met Doreen, I felt completely at ease! I immediately trusted her with my hair. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the salon and friendliness of the staff. I never felt rushed during the whole process. Doreen actually listened to what I wanted and let's just say I got EXACTLY what I wanted. I will go as far to say that this was the best haircut and color I have ever received. Thanks, Doreen...I will see you in about six weeks for a trim and color touch-up!!
By the way, my friend was very please with her haircut and color as well. We will definitely be returning customers :)
A Great Stylest – If you happen to find yourself in the Santa Monica area and are in need of a hair cut do yourself a favor and go check this place out. Ryan Lewis, a master of sheers and comb, cut my hair to a wonderful perfection. Thanks Ryan for a great cut and lifting my day and look to a hole new level.
Best Salon in CA! – Forme Salon is awesome! Ixie, one of the owners, cuts and colors my hair. She is great at what she does. Especially with my color! And you can always count on getting a great, stylish hair cut. The staff is extremely friendly! Always greets me with a warm welcome. You don't feel that typical "we are too cool for you" vibe that you often experience in other LA salons. And this salon is in one of the trendiest areas of LA...Santa Monica. I've also had a few of the assistants who were in training, cut and color my hair (of course with a more experienced stylist watching) and they've all done a great job. The salon has an extensive training program for those who want to be a great hair stylist. The assistants aren't on their own on the floor until they've proven to be ready. And that gives me great confidence in this salon. I highly recommend Forme Salon!
You will NOT be disappointed - forme salon always delivers - and Ixie is THE BEST! – I have nothing but great things to say about Ixie and forme salon. I would (and do) recommend them to all of my friends. I have never experienced a more professional and relaxing salon experience. Forme is a fabulous top-notch boutique salon, something you would hope to find in Beverly Hills...but without the BH prices. The staff always greet me with the warmest welcome. They never forget my name; they offer me cookies and tea or will hand me a book full of menus and even order me dinner when I come dragging in after a long hard day. I always get the best scalp massage before my cut and long enough that I usually doze off into a peaceful sleep. Ixie is LA's BEST colorist and stylist - there is truly no one quite like her. She is extremely talented, always prompt, stylish, up-to-date on the latest trends, funny, and makes me feel like a princess when I leave her salon. I recently started going to see Stephanie for my bikini wax - and I love her. I used to go to someone that I thought was the best ever, and it was initially hard to make the change but Stephanie has proven to be a complete pro. She never makes me feel uncomfortable and her bikini wax is about as painless as you can get when someone is ripping your hair out! I would recommend forme salon hands-down, without reservation. Give them a try - you will NOT be disappointed!
Ambience and more...oh yeah, and they do a great job on your hair too! – I have been coming to Forme since it opened last year, and I have nothing but good to say about it. Ok, maybe parking could be better, but, this is LA for Pete's sake!
When I come out of the salon, my hair always looks better and feels healthier! Thanks for giving me the confidence I needed about my newfound style!
I recently got a bikini wax, and I have to say that it was as close to painless as one can possibly get. Honestly! And FAST!
To sum it up....high profile, low key, and off the charts service--thanks Forme!
