I recently had a great experience at Planet Salon. My friend referred me and Ginger, one of the owners, made sure I was paired up with the best stylist for what I want. They were very professional and took their time ensuring I look great. I will definitely be back as a regular.
MOST HORRIBLE HAIRCUT EVER! – Beyond AWFUL! One of the WORST haircuts I ever received.
After their written and in-person consultation and explaining that I wanted to keep the previous style, longish all over but most importantly in front, with a slight lift on top, this salon gave me a NIGHTMARE cut that even a month and a half later is not grown out enough to do anything with. I anticipate another 6 months to a year. Why? You know all that emphasizing on the front remaining long? Well now it's 7 inches shorter than the tail thingee left in the back that is the only part of my hair reminiscent of its previous length! The remainder rests way above my shoulders. I walked in with hair that was 8 - 10 inches below my shoulders. The overall short length could be somewhat tolerable despite it being completely against what I asked for, except for the fact that it's completely LOPSIDED. It's not just shorter on one side than the other. It's different lengths all around and doesn't match the opposite side! A complete layered mess that will take FOREVER to grow out. Oh, did I mention that the left side appears to have a huge chunk chopped out? Yeah, needless to say I can NEVER wear my hair down. Imagine that. Every single day you have to account for an added 20 - 30 minutes of fidgeting with bobby pins, hair ties, bands, ribbons, any accessory that will hide the horrifying mess. It's a BUN, BRAID, or PONYTAIL (even that looks wrong) day, every day.
And no matter what, THEY WILL NOT REFUND YOUR MONEY after sentencing you to this daily torture. Not that any amount of money can bring back the length you spent 2 years growing or the next 6 months to a year of UGLY HAIR DAY.
Just don't be fooled by the massages. You paid for the hair. You can get the massage at a professional masseuse.
Oh, and to cap it off, they deliver masked insults while working on you. At the beginning when I clarified that I don't want to end up with 80's hair band hair, I was told that's what I walked in with. REALLY?!! My long, un-layered beautiful curls? Not the fuzzball of layers you left on my head a la Led Zeppelin? Flat on top, layered all over and only long in the back. You're kidding.
Yeah, notice I mentioned 'lift on top' earlier? FLAT!
He kept trying to cast the illusion that I walked in with an outdated look and he was upgrading me to something modern. HA! He proceeded to give me the frumpiest, most lopsided, soccer mom layered-all-over fuzzy look that I'd ever seen. HUGE FAIL.
To recap, 1. My order is to keep the style >> Got something opposite. 2. I heavily emphasized to keep long in front >> Front is actually the shortest part of my hair by 7 inches, and 3. I pointed out how I'd like to keep the lift on top that previously existed >> Completely flat on top no matter what I do. There is no remedy for this. FAIL, FAIL, FAIL!
Kristy11's review gives an accurate picture. Wish I'd read that before going. Btw, Kristy11, your Yelp review with the photo is not there. Was it removed by chance?
I really can't believe all the positive reviews on here. As a result, I was misled by all the positive reviews on Yelp. These sites need to screen the reviewers for affiliation because there is no way in the world they deserve these fabulous reviews.
Only recommend this salon to an enemy you would like to sabotage! And then watch out for really bad karma!
Angela is great!!!! – I chanced upon Angela at Planet Salon when the styllist I had been going to for over a year had a family emergency and had to move. Angela was assigned to me and it was the best stroke of luck. Everytime i get a color and cut, complete strangers will ask me where I get my hair cut and who the stylist is. I love the flattery and have no problems recommending Angela at Planet Salon at Hamburg Place. She has been my stylist now for over a year, and I always leave satisfied. In fact, my daughter who lives in Wyoming has Angela styling her hair as well. Belive it or not, she flies in from Wymoning just to have Angela color and style her hair.
She is very knowledgable about her craft and is not afraid to try something daring if that is what you want. A great stylist and great conversationalist. Try Angela as your stylist. I believe you will be very pleased with the end result.
Best Hair! – Planet Salon is my place for color, cut and style. Please enjoy it!
I just moved to the LA area and have been in search of a great salon. After reading the reviews on citysearch, I decided to give Planet Salon a try. I had an appointment with Elle and she added all over color and highlights to my hair. I basically told her what I didn't want and said "Other than that, do whatever you want." She was super excited to do her own thing - which I love. My color came out amazing! Very natural, but also fun. Elle's got sort of a rockstar look - while I do NOT. I appreciate that she took into consideration what would work for me but still made it young and fun. Also, she didn't cut my hair but she styled it better than it's ever been done before. I'll definitely be back!
ELLE IS THE BEST – You will not be disappointed here. This is a great place !!! ELLE cut 's my hair. OMG, it is one of my most treasured indulgences, and I am getting so many compliments on my hair, which she knows just how to cut as it is growing longer and healthier than ever. The haircut seems to last forever. I am happy the moment I set foot in there. Elle has such an amazingly relaxing touch throughout the whole experience. I've never met a more creative, professional stylist. I'm hooked for life!
Best hair salon ever – I have waist length colored hair and usually have cut it myself because i have such horrible experiences every time someone else touches it This salon is friendly, clean, stylish and the people are really nice. They listened to everything I had to say in detail, looked at the photos I brought. They cut y hair into really nice modern layers and really nice highlights. My hair was damaged and almost black with no style to it and they really repaired it. The little treats you get like massage and tea are awesome and make you feel like youre at a luxury spa instead of a rushed awful place like most salons. and everythings all natural and not tested on animals instead of being harsh stinky chemicals. super expensive but worth it.
A positive experience all the way around! – I can't recommend this salon enough. Their attention to detail and service is excellent. They are nice, friendly, welcoming and amazing at what they do. I work with Dean for color. He is so talented and really nice. Gino cuts my hair and is just a pleasure to work with. My cuts are amazing and I get so many positive comments on my hair. Roxy has been doing my brows and is just great! Again, they pay attention to details and ask all the right questions. Everyone is thoughtful there from offering wonderful tea or coffee, to complimentary hand and arm massage, to making sure you are comfortable while you are there. These folks understand what good customer service is. What more can you ask for...a company AVEDA doing the right thing in manufacturing/quality/natural products, great atmosphere and talented/nice professionals!? This is a must do!
Best hair color this side of Texas – Moving here from texas I was refered from my Aveda salon there to Charles at Planet Salon for my color. I thought that the salon in Texas did an ok job and never questioned it because my hair looked like every one elses hair....in TEXAS!!! Not only did he correct the color with natural looking auburn and caramel tones but my hair has never looked so healthy and shiny. The salon was very inviting and comfortable for a Beverly Hills Salon and the complementary hand massages and neck and shoulder massages are to die for. Charles was very professional and educational. He explained exactly what he was going to do, what to expect and what his plan for the future of my hair was going to be. Talk about building my confidence!!! They only use Aveda products including the hair color. Charles recommended Carrie for a curt and I can't wait until my next visit.
Recommended NOT – The staff was rude, self-absorbed, pretentious,
and arrogant - just the stereotype one expects
of Beverly Hills! Shame on the owner for tolerating
such dysfunctional behavior at her place of business.
Go to amazing Hyunsoo, who trained under John Sahag,
at down-to-earth Piero in Santa Monica, where people
know how to communicate and are nice - for a fabulous cut.
Prices are great, too, because the owner knows that
we're more than the hair on our head - we have minds too!
