Brenden Padilla: Hair Messiah – Its all about Brenden Padilla. I've been seeing him for a little under 7 years and he never fails me. His cuts can last as long as three months and still stay stylish. He uses only scissors - never clippers - and he really factors every single piece of hair into the overall cut. I watched him work out in his head exactly how he'd cut a specific look into my hair, and, after showing him a picture of what I wanted, and after cutting the exact style into my hair, and after realizing that I wasn't going to be able to pull the look off and freaking out, he called me back to his chair, put his big calm hands on my shoulders, asked me exactly what I didn't like. I told him, and he fixed it. He's a hair messiah. I'll never trust another stylist to cut my hair.
Best Hair cuts in Los Angeles – Brendan Padilla in my opinion is one of the best hair dressers in Los Angeles. I've been going to Brendan for years and have never once disliked my hair cut. The man knows what his doing. I remember one time i forget he was going on vacation, and i was in need of a hair cut and had no choice but to go to someone else... Big Mistake! I actually had to wear a hat for a week. Brendan Padilla hands down is the man to see for any issues you might have with your hair.
Jessica- The Go To Girl for all of your Salon needs. – I love my stylist Jessica- she is efficient, creative, and a true artist. Jessica has done wonders with my thick wavy hair- She has taken it from dull brown to creamy butter blond (or as she calls it "bling bling blond") and cut it in a way that allows it to be it's curly self on the days that I don't feel like blow-drying, or sleek and straight on the days that I do. I have been to a lot of stylists that don't listen to what I want, and just do what they think will look best- or try and go for something more trendy, and I always left feeling unhappy with the haircut- and the stylist. That doesn't happen with Jess, she listens to your needs (ie. I want less weight, but the same length) and creates the exact cut that flatters and delivers (ie. long, and light). Jess is great. She's been doing my hair for a while now, and I can't imagine letting anyone touch it with a ten foot pole!
Jessica Stein Styles you up ready to recieve a Grammy! – This is the first time I submitted a review to tell the world about my hair but I couldn't refuse!
One word describes my experience at L Salon. FANTASTIC. I passed by the salon with my girlfriend and she looked at my hair and said "Go In" you are need. I was so lucky to have met Jessica Stein, who was to my avaiable. She transformed my unstyled head of weeds into a great up to date look. It was unbelievable. I work in the entertainment industry and been to top stylists all over the world and she ranks right with them.
She is not just a stylist but an artist. My g/f was so impressed she made an appointment and came back looking totally hot with her new look. I referred my friends to her and we all love the attention we get from her work.
So here is gift to you people out there... if you need a cut and want to be transformed visit Jessica over at the salon. You will see what I mean!
Finally! A dream haircut – My fine, thin, wavy, even potentially curly, hair has been a struggle to get cut in a flattering way. In fact, even though I'd found another expensive hair salon specializing in curly hair, I wasn't completely happy. But, after Brendan Padilla cut my hair recently, I was FINALLY thrilled with my haircut. I know it's hard to believe, but at the age of 38, I've finally gotten a sophisticated but casual cut that flatters my head shape and fits my hair curl and texture perfectly. Brendan is one talented artist who has found his calling. And, he's gentle, funny, and pleasant to chat with, to boot.
Tina is a master colorist – A friend tipped me off to L Salon almost 10 years ago and I have been a devoted customer ever since. Nobody does color and cuts like Tina...believe me I made a big mistake in trying a few other places that were VERY expensive. L Salon has a welcoming, fun, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended! This is coming from someone who doesn't really have great hair, but everyone THINKS I do!
Great hair! – I spent a year and a half looking for Reg. I moved from NYC and tried 3 other salons. A woman whose haircut I liked referred me to Reg but with the caviat that Reg is opinated. Wonderful. I like someone who knows what they're doing and I expect them to have an opinion. And Reg does. She's nicely opinionated. For the past two years, I've had great haircuts, great color, and accommodating appointments. L Salon has a warm, welcoming, and current style -- none of the silly pretentious attitude that some NYC and LA salons have.
Wouldn't go anywhere else in LA – I have been going to Lisa for 6 years with the exception of having to move temporarily. My hair just wasn't the same during that dreadful time away from Lisa at L Salon! The main reason I love having my hair done there is because Lisa LISTENS to what you want but can also provide expert advice when necessary. I have never walked away unhappy. Everyone is friendly, the ambience is comfortable and the typical snobbery that infects many other salons, especially in L.A., is non-exsistent here. Everyone is cool and easy-going. Especially LISA! She's a sweetheart and knows hair color and cutting better than anyone I've ever seen! If I ever have to move away again, I will revolve my visits back to LA around hair appointments with her. She is the only one who knows how to make my highlights look natural and blonde, not orange, brassy or fake. Lisa is the best!
Melody is the BEST - she has moved to Vered Salon – Melody has been doing my hair for a least 5 years. I like that she takes time to give me a great cut/color and makes good suggestions when I want to try something new. I highly recommend her for her fantastic cuts, color and great personality. She is always so friendly and funny! Go see her already!
Update: 11/28/08 - Melody is now at Vered Salon on Melrose - I have followed her there. She can be reached at: housemelody@gmail(dot)com for an appointment. She is just great!!!! Love my hair :-)
L Salon's Christopher is the Best! – I love this salon space and all the fun people there. I have been a client for about 7 years and have ONLY gone to Christopher for my cuts and color. I'm sure the other stylists are talented and fun, but Christopher is a master at his craft and will make you blush with his wild stories and one liners. He's a great listener too which kind of makes it like a cheap therapy appointment. You walk out feeling and looking better. People always compliment by fabulous highlights...
The only challenge can be parking after 6pm due to the permit only but it's worth the trouble.
