Hit or Miss, mostly MISS! – Very hit or miss, but the last few cuts have been awful, so I've given up and won't be back. I've had a couple of decent cuts at Floyd's when I first started going, but too many of their so-called stylists are not properly trained with little experience. And, it seems the goal is high turnover, so they rush though a cut, with little attention to detail and quality. And, out of 7 or so cuts, I've had the "massage" offered only twice. I guess some stylists want to save the time and don't offer or they don't feel comfortable with it.
My bad cuts came from inexperienced stylists using a razor, creating a patchy, uneven look -- not noticeable at the time of the the cut, but very apparent after 2 - 3 weeks of re-growth -- HORRIBLE... no symmetry, no rhyme or reason (except for the rush to get another butt in the chair). Some of the layers had a straight, blunt, thick edge, some had an angle, some layers were more wispy.
With it being a holiday weekend and needing a cut, I was desperate and went to a local, un-trendy, mini-mall to have the bad Floyd's cut fixed. The stylist knew exactly what I needed and even said repeatedly "I can't believe they did this to your hair. They butchered it!" She did an excellent fix, but the low-cost Floyd's cut ended up costing double, as I had to go elsewhere to fix it.
I really wanted to stick with Floyd's. My first cut was great, the second on good, the third bad, the next so-so and the last few have been awful. I give up. It's no longer a savings of time and money... just a bad experience. I'd be better off taking my chances as a guinea pig at a beauty school or going to SuperCuts. At least with SuperCuts, you walk in knowing not to expect much. The trendy atmosphere in Floyd's can lull you into thinking that you're about to get a cut from a professional -- not so. Again, it's hit or miss. mostly miss!
hip place – i just started getting my hair cut at floyds. all of the the walls are covered with posters of rock bands and singers. krystle gives amazing hair cuts and doesnt make you feel like she just cuts your hair because its her job. she talks to you and has a conversation with you. The past 3 times ive been there ive been extremely happy about it. I used to go to another place in studio city. I recommend this place to anyone looking for an awesome haircut. :)
Style in the Valley! – Finally you don't have to go over the hill to get a good haircut! Ladies and gentlemen, A cool place to get a haircut in the valley, brought to you by Floyd's!
My boyfriend and I both get cuts at Floyd's. We go to whoever is available and have never been unhappy. If he gets done first, they've got free internet to keep him busy while i get my blowdry. Everybody there is friendly and cool. I highly recommend them!
Haircuts, blowouts, styling or a shave with a side of rock and roll. – In Short
If the goateed barbers and flourescent-haired stylists don't clue you in to this salon chain's vibe, then the blaring music and famed poster wall of rock heroes, movie stars and sexy sirens certainly will. With a spunky mix of retro charm (leather and chrome barber chairs, shampoo bowls at every station and the classic striped barber pole) and modern cool (internet stations and plasma screen TVs), the shop sticks to basic services like unisex cuts, blowouts and coloring treatments.
Hits: Prices are reasonable (about $20 for a basic cut) with each added service such as shampoo, blow-dry and styling priced incrementally.
Misses: Because haircuts are walk-in only, the wait can be agonizingly long, especially on weekends.
