Fun Salon, Great Colorist! – I've been dying my hair blonde since I was about 10 years old, you name it, I've tried it. I've gone to numerous salons and Prive is the best one in LA! The salon is great, friendly and relaxed! But of course, a a salon is only as good as its employees, and the best colorist in LA (in my opinion!) is Lucy Shultz.. My hair has been through the ringer, blonde then blonder then brown and back to blonde. Lucy was fabulous! She looked at my hair, asked me what I wanted and a few hours later, I looked great! My blonde is a wheat blonde, full of dimension, full of different shades of blonde, shiny, and most importantly, it doesn't feel damaged! It also looks natural (a pretty hard thing to pull off with blonde hair). After about 15 years of trying to achieve a perfect shade of blonde, I can honestly say I have finally found it, and it was thanks to LUCY SHULTZ at Prive Salon on Beverly Blvd!
Best Hair compliments ever! also Best Keratin Treatment to eliminate temporarely frizzies! – I had my good friend from New York call me to let me know that her stylist of 4 years who specializes in cut and color will now be commuting between NYC and L.A monthly. I called Prive salon and booked an appointment with the mysterious Lionel Renard
I was a little worried at first because I needed a huge overhaul but I had faith in my friend.
I arrived on a Monday to a pleasant staff in a pretty salon where a cute charming french man came to greet me.
A real professional, well mannered, He asked me my thoughts and gave me some Ideas on what he thought would be best for my hair. I felt good in his hands, we agreed to lift my base to a light brown and he added some very natural looking streaks to achieve natural looking highlights. The conversation was great and the experience unique! He gave me a beautiful long layered haircut in a way that my hair had never been cut before. I looked like Gisele meets Penelope Cruz! Lol!!!! I have been sending all my girlfriends to him and they all love him. A little on the expensive side but I truly felt wonderful! Money well spent! though the best is all the compliments I have been getting since!
That's why I just had to write... he is the bomb! Oh and by the way my girlfriend just got that new process done: " Brazilian Keratin Treatment" , UNBELIEVABLE ! her hair was a real frizzy mess! It took her hours to get ready! Lionel got her hair straight for 3 months without having to painfully blowdry it ! She had colored hair with high lights and I thought she would damage her hair but her hair ended up being smooth shiny and and perfectly conditioned.
Worth every penny! You will leave looking & feeling like a DIVA! – I've been to Laurant's place in NYC and have even had the honor of working w/ LAurant on an editorial photo shoot in the past. (I am a professional model) and I must say that although the prices are a bit high, they are not ridiculous for a celebrity filled, posh salon! I decided to try Luis and Christian here in LA. Luis is absolutely amazing! he is a magician w/ hair! Not only is he the extension king but is also so sweet, and unpretentious! A rarity among well known celeb stylists! Luis even stayed late for me, when he was booked to be at an A-list movie stars house for a private appt. he wanted to make sure he didn't rush w/ me and made sure I was completely happy- paying attention to every detail! He treats you like a diva and makes you look like one too! Christian is also a magician- with color! Also despite his huge celeb clientele he is so down to earth and takes care of you as if you are his Picasso! I happily paid premium prices for an amazing beyond premium job on my hair by Luis and Christian! You will leave looking AND feeling like a Diva! Make sure you have somewhere to show yourself off after your appointment!
Don't Waste Your Money! – This place is so overrated! I used to go here regularly until I finally came to my senses. I've had my hair colored bright orange (no apology even from the colorist!) and my stylist cancelled on me more than once because I guess a celebrity client came along who was more important. In addition, the stylists actually talk about the clients in front of other clients! My hairdresser tried to pawn off her next client to another stylist because she didn't like her! As a stylist it's part of your job to be able to handle all types of personalities, especially for the prices you pay here! For a cut and a color it's easy to drop at least $400-$500...easy......Are you getting quality, professionalism, and most importantly....do you walk out feeling like a million bucks? Nope.
Best Hair in LA! – From the moment I called to book an appt. last minute to get fit in ASAP I was treated superbly. Maurice a receptionist answered and I was in a panic just in from NYC and told him I wanted Nicole Richies stylist. After Maurice investigated who her stylist was to no avail he recommended I see Christian (Jessica Simpsons colorist) and Luis (Teri Hatchers stylist). Maurice was beyond kind and professional for fitting me in THE NEXT DAY! I explained I was new to LA but did go to Prive NYC and very picky! Maurice assured me not to worry and I see why! Christian however kindly refused to do my highlites I booked bc I have lots of extensions and he was unsure how they would react to coloring. I haven't ever had such an honest stylist who wasnt just "out for the money". I was very impressed w/ his expertise and humbleness although he has the celeb clientele and talents to have a HUGE ego he is very down to earth and he definately knows his craft! Luis gave me an awesome, amazing cut and style that is better than any Ive had in awhile (I only go to top rated stylists) Luis is by far the most talented. He knows what you want and will create it better than you even imagine! I made an appointment to have Luis do my new extensions as that is his specialty! The price was actually very reasonable and fair- as I expected it to be much more than it was. Also, they offer valet parking and an amazing hand car wash for only $15 while you are getting your services done! I like LA Prive better than NYC- although both are of the utmost highest calibur of artists and ambience as well!
Great stylists! – Great cut, great blowdry. Luis is the guy to see if you want to look like a diva.
Great cut! – Prive Salon is a hip and trendy place. They offer a variety of services. I got a great cut with Guy, he is the best. I even had my eyebrows trimmed to match my short cut. I haven't had short hair in years, but it looks great! He took the time to really cut every strand perfectly. Price is a lil on the expensive side, but its worth it!
Slow Service - Kinda Snobby – I wasn't thrilled with the service because it was very slow. And when I finally got seated I was passed around like jelly at the breakfast table. Finally, a recruit (I think) cut my hair. She asked me how I wanted it, and I told her. And then she proceeded to shred my hair. I was in Beverly Hills on vacation, and this experience kinda ruined it.
superb cut, color, atmosphere and staff – I have been going off and on for the past two years and I always seem to go back. I always leave very pleased with my cut and color, and I have never been dissappointed! The only thing that I would have to say negatively is there are limited parking spots, but it is a small price to pay for a great experience! I would highly recomment going and I guarentee you will keep going back!
