THE ABSOLUTE BEST – I have always been nervous about going to hair salons, especially big salons, I don't know why. Maybe because I've always felt that nobody will care more about my hair than myself. Maybe I thought I didn't want to spend the money. So, needless to say, I've always done my own hair at home. Well, a co-worker recommended I try 26 on Ventura, and more specifically, Dani. I was a bit nervous as I entered the salon. I felt a little intimidated as I looked around and saw many flat screen t.v.s showing models on a fashion runway. I was immediately offered a Cappuccino and started feeling at ease. Whatever apprehensions, Dani took me to her station and I was taken by her down-to-earth demeanor. She made me feel right at home. We talked about what hair style would be best for my face and came up with suggestions I never thought of. She matched my previous color and added a few highlights around my face, which she said would brighten up my eyes. I wish I could post a picture here because SHE WAS RIGHT!! When she was done, she could have just said good-bye, but she took the time to show me how to style my hair at home. With the lesson she gave me, I can style my own hair at home and make it ALMOST as good as she did it. Thanks, Julie, for the recommendation, and thanks Dani, for making me feel so pretty!
Best hair salon EVER! – I went to get my hair cut and colored last week and I could not believe how great this place is. I felt pampered. I am a mother of two small children and that is important to me! I love my hair stylist Dani and this new location she is at is just perfect! The people are friendly and nice. I ordered lunch to be delivered while I was there and the staff at the reception area took care of everything. All I needed to do was sit back, get my blond highlights (which are fabulous) and relax. They have numerous t.v.'s, a cappuccino bar, a vibrating chair while you get your hair done and many other wonderful things that make this place stand out from any others.
Seroiusly, try this salon and of course Dani and you will be so happy!
This is the place to be – I have HAPPILY been getting my hair cut from Dani for YEARS now. She is always on top of the new styles and the right cut for my oddly shaped head. She recently made a move to 26 On Ventura. WHAT a COOL place. NOTHING like sitting back in a massage chair while getting my hair washed. As a NON metro male THIS is the COOLEST spot I have ever gotten my hair cut at.
THE BEST CUT & COLOR BY DANI AT 26 ON VENTURA! – Whether you're in need of a style change for 2009 or simply want to upgrade your current look, an appointment with Dani at 26 on Ventura is a must!!! Not only is she always up-to-date with the latest trends, her consistency with phenomenal cut, color & extensions are unrivaled!! She will always give you an honest consultation, and her contagious humor and warm personality makes you feel like she's been your personal stylist for years. Her own sense of style (and great hair!) is inspiring and gives you a sense of comfort that you're in good hands.
I get stopped often and asked who does my hair - I've referred not only strangers but all my friends to Dani and always hear rave reviews from everyone!!
Not only does 26 on Ventura offer Dani and her services, this salon has a great vibe from the entire staff and also offers manicures and facials, massage, tanning, and their own cute espresso bar in an upscale energetic atmosphere.
Taking care of yourself on the outside makes you feel renewed on the inside... make an appointment with Dani today!
PHENOMENAL MANICURIST – Been to so many salons and tried so many manicurists; I?m glad that I found her. She?s knowledgeable about nails and took time to do your nails to make them look perfect. I got a full set of pink & white. My nails came out looking very proportional to my body figure with many details; they?re thin and look natural. Overall, they?ve lasted a really long time without lifting and showing the re-growth. I?m very happy and I tell all my friends about it. This is the place to come if you really care about your nails. Judy, she?s awesome!
PROS: Clean, high-end salon, incredible manicurist
CONS: No parking
Best Platinum Color I Have Ever Had!!! – Kealani is my savior. I have gone to colorist after colorist and every time my platinum hair comes out too yellow or gray or splochy... simply put, not what I wanted. I have never had my color done so perfect and on the first try! It was exactly what I wanted, toned perfectly, and my hair doesn't even feel damaged. I love her! Oh and she gives the best scalp massage, I practically fell asleep at the shampoo bowl. Soooooooo relaxing. KEALANI YOU'RE THE BEST!!! THANK YOU!!! I am going to refer everyone I know!
I finally found the perfect hairdresser! – For years I've been doing the trial and error run around, searching for a hairdresser who not only was personable, but who understood exactly what I wanted. Well, I found her. Her name is Kealani and she works at Studio 26, in Studio City. I have naturally very light brown hair, and every other stylist I'd been to couldn't seem to blend the highlights well. I always left feeling okay. With the three colors Kealani uses, I've never had so much demention. Her attention to detail is obvious, both with her cutting and coloring. Ever since going to her, people can't stop complimenting me on how natural my highlights look. The salon is two stories, bright, and gorgeous. I recommend Kealani to anyone in search of an amazing stylist!
BEST IVE EVER SEEN – I HAD HEARD ABOUT CAYA ACKERMAN, AND HOW MANY WELL KNOW STARS USE HER EXCLUSIVLEY BUT NOW I KNOW WHY. SHE IS SO INSIGHTFULL AND PROFESSIONAL THAT I DONT MIND PAYING HER PRICE. SHES NOT CHEAP BUT IF YOU WANT TO PAMPER YOURSELF THEIR SHOULD BE NO DOUBT
WONDERFUL SALON, AND A GREAT HAIRSTYLIST....MIRANDA!!!! – This is a new place, however, it's a sister salon to Dej Salon (down the street on Ventura). I have been going to MIRANDA (Formally of Dej salon) for sometime now and I have to say she is as good as they come. She is extremely professional, attentive, and thorough. During her consults she makes sure she understands your ideas and vision you have for you hair style, unlike many other places I've been where they cut your hair how they see fit making you look like every other person that walks in there. These other salons claim to hold the top spot with lame trendy furniture, fancy lights, snobby staff and people that couldn't style hair if their lives depend on it.
If you want a stylish haircut done by someone who is well trained in the business, with a unique understanding of customer service, at a fraction of the cost of other "trendy salons", go see MIRANDA at Studio 26. Its a wonderful place, where you can have a freshly brewed capaccino while getting your hair done!
MIRANDA is the way to go! I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
Stunning Salon – Studio26 is an amazing salon. It's absolutely beautiful inside. The front desk was so helpful to give me directions and match me with the perfect stylist for my hair. Rigo is so talented and knew how to razor my short hair to make it pixie-liscious! Very reasonably priced and worth every penny. Everyone was so helpful and there was nothing but good energy. The only downfall is they do not have parking, but I was able to find street parking right out front so remember to bring quarters! Overall a great experience, I'll definitely be back!
