Chrome is where its AT!.
I have been going to MELINDA at Chrome for years!!!! She is the only person that has been able to: color, cut, style, and take care of my hair. I have moved away from LA and been to other stylist..... to say that those other stylist ruined my hair would be an understatement! So knowing Melinda is amazing i went back to her.... She colored my hair back to what i love my hair to look like, she cut my hair to perfection, and i got the BRAZILIAN BLOW OUT!!!!!! Which was the best thing i have ever done for my hair. My hair now has its shine back, its EASY to style, its perfectly straight just by blow drying it (when before blow drying my hair i would look like a huge poof ball), and people are commenting on how amazing my hair looks... and my husband now loves to play with my hair because its so soft!
Melinda was awesome at everything, cutting, coloring, styling and the products she "proscribed" to save my hair are amazing! and just her demeanor is so fun. She made my time there enjoyable and i was laughing and talking the whole time. LOVE HER!
I walked into the salon a mess.... and walked out feeling like a million bucks! chrome is the place to go and i will never go any where else.
Kimmie renewed my faith in hairstylists. After a few years of and haircuts and razor combing my hair myself, it was time to place my hair int he hands of a professional. Kimmie was that professional, the first time I went to chrome she sat me down for a consult and I booked an appointment for the following day. Kimmie has since been the ONLY person allowed near me hair with sharp objects and is always accommodating, she even came in really early to make sure I could get my hair done in time for my college graduation. She is a master at what she does and I ALWAYS get complimented on my hair whether its the color, cut, or styling all the time. Kimmie is awesome and I highly recommend her to everyone.
I'm hooked on Chrome!.
3/25/10: I originally posted the following review to Yelp on March 10, 2010. As of today, it has not been posted there for the general public to view. Therefore I am taking my content back and posting it to Citisearch, so that other people will be able to read it. "Roger turned my bad hair day into summertime. I was unhappy with the results of my previous salon which was expensive. I took a chance on Chrome and was rewarded with better hair and a fatter purse. Mommy like! Thank you very very much. I've already recommended this salon to others and will continue to do so. The staff was very nice as well. "
Update: I've gone back a few times since my first review of Chrome and am still extremely happy with the service. Roger is great and always makes me feel so much better about the way I look when I exit his chair. Additionally, the last time I was there, I got a FANTASTIC facial from Angela. She is a very caring person and wants her clients to be educated about skin care and sun protection. Chrome will be keeping me pretty for a long time to come. Thanks to the entire crew!
Oh, and I also tried to publish this update to Yelp on 8/08/10, but they still aren't publishing my Chrome reviews. I've reviewed other businesses as well on Yelp, so it's not a question of being filtered out by some sort of fraud review detection.
Melinda is a BADASS.. Melinda is by far the best hairdresser i have ever met. I came in for a consultation on a day when she wasn't supposed to be taking clients. I wanted to go from box color black to platinum blonde, i knew it was going to be tough, but melinda willingly took on the project and made me platinum by the end of the day along with cutting a perfect bob. She has an awesome personality and made me comfortable by explaining each step and really taking her time to not damage my hair. Afterwards she explained all the products i would need to keep my hair in good shape, in my price range. Melinda is a true miracle worker and hair genius. I recommend her a 100 times over!
Keenan is KING of Hair.
I have never met a hairdresser who knows about color as much as Keenen King and his cuts are so sylish too. I work in entertainment and am quite picky as to who does my hair and the outcome, as it needs to look fastastic, as in camera ready, every time.
I have long, fine hair and he gives it volume and advised me how to thicken it too. I get compliments every time. I refer family and friends and he made my sisters hair, which is long and very curly, the best I have ever seen it in her life. Again, his expertise with color is "spot on" and I've had my color and cuts done in London, Boston and Los Angeles and he IS my favorite.
He took my hair from unhealthy and damaged, due to another hairdresser's mistake, to literally perfect. It takes time for hair to grow and damage to disappear so don't be discouraged. If your hair is damaged, he WILL make it look amazing while your hair recovers.
I really can't speak highly enough of his work and can recommend him with no hesitation. He is very experienced in hair, modeling and fashion so he knows how to make you look good. On a personal level, he is VERY professional and also laid back & friendly, so he instantly makes you feel comfortable. I enjoy going to do my hair with him!
I am certainly an impressed and faithful client of his and would follow him where ever he goes!
I GIVE ONE STAR ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE TO. NO STARS FOR KIMMIE. I went to Kimmie on a Sunday at 2:30. She overbooked and I had to wait until 3pm until we started. I decided to go all blonde with brown underneath. She bleached my roots first and let that sit while she was working on someone else. She kept it on for a long time and I was getting concerned when she finally rushed back over to me and literally "slopped" the rest of the bleach on my head. The bleach was dripping all over.. She did it so half-fast. She left that on until it was "convenient" for her to rinse it out. Once I saw the color of my hair I was obviously freaked out (it was like bright yellow!!!). She was ADAMAMENT that it was not yellow. She suceeded in brain washing me so that she could go on to her next customer (who also had to wait like 30 min.s). I left thinking "maybe it does look ok"... -> WRONG!!! I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MY GUT INSTINCT AND NOT LISTENED TO HER BS!!! She should have been more than happy to spend like 15 more minutes on toner seeing that I was concerned, but she's too selfish for that. VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE. SHE DOESN'T LISTEN. When I tried to schedule an appointment with her to fix it she was NOT ACCOMODATING AT ALL. You think she'd be willing to squeeze me in considering I'm walking around like this. She wouldn't listen to me when I said I couldn't take off work to go to the salon and that I get off at 5:30pm. She obviously didn't even read or pay attention to what I told her because she tried scheduling me at 5pm. Finally, she sent me a rude text message, "u let me know". I tried calling her and she would never answer. Finally I left a message for her manager to call me to straighten things out since she wasn't responding to me. OF COURSE, then she calls all IRATE. SHE WAS COMPLETELY YELLING AT ME SAYING I"M HARRASSING HER!!! I just wanted the reassurance that she cared, understood and that she would schedule me ASAP. She's all, "I don't even know if your check is going to clear"! Where did that come from?! She didn't have a c.c. machine that worked so what other choice did I have but to write a check!? (Meanwhile, I checked and the check had already been cashed! She just straight up lied to me!) I was trying to get her to calm down and stop yelling at me, so when I started saying, "I'm sorry if it comes accross as me "harrassing" you, but... AND THEN SHE STRAIGHT HUNG UP ON ME!!!! I WAS TRYING TO APOLOGIZE AND CALM HER DOWN, BUT SHE HUNG UP ON ME!!!???? I THOUGHT THE CUSTOMER WAS ALWAYS RIGHT?! ITHOUGHT SHE SHOULD BE CALMING ME DOWN!!!!!
Go to Kimmie if you don't mind wasting money and time on a stylist who has MASSIVE ATTITUDE, DOESN"T LISTEN and WHO DAMN WELL WON"T HELP YOU IF YOU ARE SATISFIED!
So happy I found chrome. I get peels and Botox at cosmitique med spa a few doors down and was referred to Crome, and they are the best! The stylists are all so sweet and they even added money in the parking meeter! I like that they have bumble and bumble products! My new favorite salon!!!
KIMMIE KIMMIE KIMMIE IS YOUR GIRL!!!!.
Kimmie Chi is the BOMB!!! I've been coming to her for over 6 years & followed her from 2 other salons!! When I first met Kimmie, my hair was a mess and was in need of a miracle!! Another stylist from a different salon attempted to make me a blonde on top of my black hair. She basically fried it. So much of my hair had fallen out, and the hair I did have left was all different colors, (orange, blonde, brown, black). I cried:(
I thought I was going to have to cut all of my hair off and wait 2 years for it all to grow back. By the time Kimmie was done with my hair, not only did she restore my color but also somehow made my hair look really healthy and shiny!!! From that day on I knew Kimmie would be the only one who could touch this head!!! Not to mention, she cuts hairs beautifully too!!! Til this day, I consistently receive compliments on my hair!!! Thank you Kimmie!!! Your the Best and I don't know what my hair would do without you:)
it's less about the salon than KIMMIE(stylist/colorist).
ok, so I follow this chick wherever she goes because:
I was told by SIX STYLIST that they would NOT attempt to lighten my dyed black hair to platinum blonde UNTIL I met Kimmie, who said yes. not only did she do it, but my hair was glossy, gorgeous and no one could believe it was all mine...eight years later, Kimmie has kept my hair (red and black now) silky and I get compliments AT LEAST once I week - she's the bomb and is really reasonably priced, considering she could be in Bev Hills and charge three times as much!! seriously, she has made my hair my number one asset (it's down to my butt and a real eyecatcher) and the boys go crazy for my locks!
Melinda is the lady.... I love Melinda- she has a kick-ass personality that makes you feel very welcome in her chair. After my first appt. with her she sent a Thank You and a reminder for a treatment that I need to go back for monthly- fantastic!!
