Great Haircut – I got a great hair cut at Shortys from Gilbert. I'm generally not very good at describing how I want my haircut, and Gilbert had never cut my hair before, so I was a little unsure of how this was gonna go- he seemed to understand what I was looking for (even with my minimal directions/instructions) and gave me a cut that was just right for me. I was pleasantly surprised and will definately be back.
Good Cut- Good Energy – I've been getting great haircuts from Gilbert for a while now. This week two people asked me who cut my hair (in a positive way!) I think that's pretty cool, right? Time to write a review!
So...You can make an appointment with him- he's always been right on time for me- haircut takes about 30 minutes- cost: $30 bucks- obviously solid work and he brings the good, chill, energy.
There you have it. Works for me. I can definately recommend checking him out.
FINALLY got a good haircut! – I've lived in LA for just over a year and I've yet to find a good spot to get a haircut. I finally went to Shorty's and got a great haircut from a great stylist. The atmosphere is very cool and coming to Shorty's is more of an experience rather than just getting a haircut.
Mixed Reviews, but depends on Who Cuts Your Hair – I've seen some people post on here that they have no idea how this place could get so many good reviews.
I have mixed reviews myself, but it really depends on who cuts your hair.
There are two heavy-set girls that work at Shorty's. I don't know what their names are, but one can only be described as looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show (way too much makeup, and yes, I know I'm now going to hell for that comment!).
I have had the unfortunate luck to have had my haircut by "Mimi". She cuts hair faster than anyone in the place, and I understand now how she does it. It was the worst butcher cut I've ever had in my life. Before I found Dimas and Elvis, I would refuse to have my haircut by her, and actually walked out and acted like I had an urgent call when I found out I was next on the list and she called for me.
Then I found Dimas. He's really good, super funny, an all-around good guy. I ask for him every time now, and will leave if he's not working (because I don't ever want to get stuck with Mimi again).
I've also had Elvis cut my hair a few times, and although he cut it a bit shorter than I wanted once, it always looked good.
Keeping It Simple Never Looked So Good – My barber at Shortys (calming Gilbert) has saved me from myself, and my misguided ideas of what my hair should be doing…. or is it more like what my hair shouldn’t be doing? In any case I was a lost soul that had never quite been the master of my own hairstyle. Gilbert just broke it down for me in a real simple manner, never making it more complicated than it needed to be. As he said- “don’t over think it”. He gave me a clean, classic haircut that has a few different easy styling options. I feel like I’ve got this hair thing down now- thank you Gilbert.
RYANE IS INCREDIBLE – My friend and I randomly walked in, and we were taken care of right away. Ryane listened to what we wanted and did an excellent job.
Your hair is super important and Ryane is the gal to go to! She's artistic, friendly, super cute, and you know you can trust her! She also was very complimentary to her co-worker, Trent, who I also read good reviews about.
I'm hooked! Keep up the good work!
Ask for Chris R. He's a cut-above! – If you are looking for an experienced stylist to get it right the first time, see my man Chris R. He's a class act and treats you like you need to be treated. Besides being hooked by his charming smile and winner personality, you will enjoy your time in his chair. Whether it's a high and tight or close and edgy, this Shorty's professional will do it right every time.
WORST CUT EVER – I have no idea were to start. I received a hair cut from the most inexperienced person possible. While in the process of cutting my hair, she was pretty much asking how to cut it. You would think being someone who works here would know how to cut hair. If your an inexperienced hair stylist, this is the place to apply for a job. You could get a better hair cut at Super Cuts. If Shorty's really cared about their customers, they wouldn't hire someone with so little experience Don't waste your money or time at Shorty's, go to Rudy's.
Great haircut. Great price. – Ask for Jessica. She spent time making sure I got the right haircut, was very thorough and a nice person. I got a $50+ looking haircut for $23.
Barber Gil – Gilbert makes my big crazy asian hair seem (as he puts it)- "intentional". If you have this kind of hair you know what I'm talking about- it's probably always gonna be big crazy hair, but now it looks like it's on purpose! Who knew?! Lol. Thanks Gil!
