treat yourself and those around you. . . – Like an artist with an extensive color palette, Dolly creates highlights that are so natural and carefully chosen to enhance the overall appearance of each client she transforms.
Her eye for color is matched with the skill and precision of a perfect cut that grows out months later as attractive as the day you walked out of her salon.
The fresh and flattering layering and melding of color, style, and personality make the "hair" experience with Dolly Simons a unique treat to yourself and all those around you!
The BEST in the West!!! In fact, the best anywhere! – I've been the happy recipient of Dolly's "magic" for many, many years now. She has made my thin, frizzy hair look thicker and much healthier with her layered color process. When I've been out of town for long periods of time, I've been forced to seek out other hairdressers and usually have been very disappointed. Dolly is always my first appointment when I get back to L.A. She never disappoints me. She is a miracle worker and also has great stories to tell!
Would you change your career because of your hairdresser? – Would you ever change your career to become a hairdresser because you loved the way your hairdresser did your hair? Would you ever change your career to become a hairdresser because you loved how your hairdresser transformed someone's hair before your eyes? Would you ever change your career to become a hairdresser because you saw
your hairdresser transform a client with dull, lifeless color into a color that has been kissed by the sun with a multitude of autumn hues? Would you ever change your career to become a hairdresser because you saw your hairdresser meticulously create a haircut that takes 5 years off your appearance? Well I did. I finally bit the bullet and left the corporate world and became a hairdresser. Not to become just any hairdresser. But to be a hairdresser as magnificent as Dolly. Although I have moved to Northern California, my roll model is Dolly. Once she has transformed your hair, you will never go back to mediocrity.
Simply the Best – I had high hopes going in for my first appointment with Dolly and she didn't disappoint.
My hair has always been a challenge- fine, thin and damaged. Dolly and her awesome assistant Rachael worked what I can only describe as magic on my ratty mane. My hair has never looked better. The layered color is fantastic, just the look I have been trying to get for years and the cut works brilliantly.
If you're wondering if Dolly is the hair stylist for you, don't wonder, make an appointment and be transformed into the beautiful woman you are supposed to be. Like leaving an abusive relationship, you'll never look back.
Layered Colored - A Rescue From Being Gothic – When I met Dolly people had described me as Gothic. My hair was one tone and so dark that my skin looked pale. Dolly saved me!! She is amazingly talented in matching your skin and hair color. Her artistic eye in combination with her layered color technique has drastically improved my look and changed my image. Dolly places each and every highlight and weave with intent to reach the desired look. I always receive compliments on how natural my hair looks. Thanks Dolly!!
D. Simons Layered Color - Great work and a happy client! – Having lived in the Los Angeles area for several years, I've tried a few hair stylists. I will preface this by saying, if you don't know what you would do with someone who has Janis Joplin kind of hair, (thick, shoulder length and with a lot of natural wave and curl) you probably won't know what to do with mine. Guess what. Dolly Simons knows what to do. She is experienced, she looks carefully at your hair, and asks you what you want to do. After a thoughtful, careful consultation, she begins to do what has obviously been honed through years of being a colorist and hair stylist. For the first time since I've lived here, I have not had someone try to put unwanted foils on my hair for highlights and do a base color. She has a better technique, her trademarked Layered Color. Great for anyone but especially for someone like me who, at age 44, does NOT want to look washed out from too much blonde in my hair. I wanted the rich, subtle, auburn with gold color that I had when I was younger and she delivered it. There are people who cut and color hair, and there are people who truly exhibit a passion and artistry for their work. Dolly Simons has that passion, artistry and experience, and she also is just a very pleasant person to talk with while she efficiently works. I am a person who doesn't like to sit still for long but realize (every couple of months or so) that I must do something with this hair of mine. I felt very comfortable talking with her and time went by quickly. She is a true professional stylist and I highly recommended her!
Layered Color by Dolly – I've been a client of Dolly's for about 6 years and she has delivered consistent and superior resuls. Dolly listens and treats every client with the same one-on-one attention so they know her focus is always on them. Dolly makes sure when you leave you are happy with the results. I get compliments on my hair often.
I'm so glad I found her. Thanks, Dolly!
Layered Color Will Change Your Life! – Dolly's Layered Color technique will change your outlook and confidence about yourself, knowing your are projecting yourself to the world as a healthy, vibrant and attractive individual. That's what it did for me, facing, as we all will, the fading and dullness of encroaching gray at mid-life, and not knowing what to do about it. Just accept it and give up? You don't have to because Dolly is here to give your hair a spectrum of color with depth and definition. She used my own brown color as the base, then wove in a sequence of amazing highlights, not the zebra stripes often seen. People will notice: the first time Dolly did my color I stopped at my local convenience store for beer. The elderly counterman, who had seen me a hundred times before, gave me an appraising glance and said cheerfully "Well, young lady, I think we'll need some ID on that!" I was in my mid-fifties! Thank YOU, Dolly Simons.
No more bad color!!!! – I had tried to dye my own hair and ended up eventually dying it black. It fried my hair and did not look attractive. I needed help! Dolly Simons brought be back to a very natural looking blonde.
She really has a talent for color and her layered color technique leaves the hair healthy and very natural looking. I am so glad to have my strawberry blonde locks back and my hair feels so healthy! I can really trust dolly to do color correction, touch-up, layered color, etc. and to really do it correctly and without destroying my hair.
Pure Talent! I highly recommend!!
Where to go for the best hair cut and color in town – I have been going to Dolly Simons for over 10 years, and I would never let anyone else touch my hair! Before I was introduced to Dolly, hair appointments were so stressful, because you were never quite sure what the results were going to be. Now my hair appointments are a relaxing experience, and there is no need to fret ~ only relax and feel great that Dolly is working her magic on your hair!
Dolly's technique of layered color has left me with incredibly healthy hair, which is very important to me. In addition to the fabulous color and highlights, Dolly is a master at haircutting. Her stylish cuts grow out perfectly and are always easy to maintain. Dolly puts so much time and effort in to every cut and color, and you know you have been given the most personalized service. If you want to really look your best, give Dolly a call!
