Best Service Best Hair Best Stylist Angie at Shampu – If you are looking for excellent service, my recommendation is run to see Angie at Shampu. I read the reviews here and that made me schedule an appointment. Angie is really professional, and has the gift of listening to the client. She has a great personality and makes you feel comfortable right away. I have curly
hair which is not easy to tame, she did an awesome job with it. I was suffering from a bad haircut and had a multicolor head, she corrected both problems. The end result, I love my hair again. If you have curly hair like I do, she is the person to see!
Shampu Rocks! – I have always had difficult hair. It is curly and course and very hard to manage. I have fought the frizzies my entire life. For years I would straighten my hair with flat irons, used harsh chemical relaxers, you name it I have tried it on my hair. I never was able to find a stylist that could help me find an easy way to style my hair. Most hairstylists have always just blown out my hair straight or flat ironed it causing me to always have high maintenance hair. I finally was referred to Angie at Shampu in Long Beach. I was soooo happy to hear her say she could show me some easy techniques to style my hair curly without it being frizzy or left with the wet crunchy moussed look. Angie was the first stylist who actually was interested in my curl and wearing it curly... and the styling tips she gave me worked out perfectly. I have embraced my curl for the first time in my life and it takes me only 10 minuted or so to style my hair.. AND I don't have the wet crunchy look either!! Finally I have the hair that I have always wanted and I can thank Angie at Shamu for showing me the way. My cuts are perfect, which as a person with curly hair finding a good hairstylist who can cut curly hair properly is extremely difficult. I am a lifetime client now. Go to Shampu and ask for Angie, she truly is awesome!
Not quite so terrific – I went to Angie based on stellar reviews here and elsewhere. Sadly, my experience was very disappointing. I tried her services 3 different times so this wasn't a one-time bad day. As far as color, I felt like some sort of ginea pig. Each time there were multiple processes, obviously pretty damaging to my hair. She never bothered to write down any of the formulas, so each time she had to start over. First time, orange - 2nd time good - third time green. Oh, and she was late for every appointment and never stopped talking from the moment she walked in. Forget about letting her cut your short hair, this is definately not her speciality. She's used to cutting men's short hair and that's what I ended up looking like. Did I mention I was growing my hair out?!!?!? Beware!
Excellent Color and Haircut – I was referred to Angie at Shampu by a family member. I recently had a disasterous situation happen with my hair and was in dire need of getting my hair fixed. On the word of my sister-in-law I made an appointment with Angie. I was so nervous prior to my appointment, but I have to say that all my anxiety went away after only speaking to Angie over the phone when making my appointment. She really seemed to know what she was talking about and eased my mind on being able to fix the mess my hair was in. My appointment day was no different. I arrived with a head of brassy, extremely dry and even breaking in some areas hair and left with the beautiful highlighted blonde that I so dearly missed. My haircut was probably the best cut I have ever had. I was so happy with the results, especially since I was almost about to give up any hope. My usual test is to see if I can come close to recreating my hairstyle just the way the stylist did and sure enough I was able to. I also learned a few things about styling while Angie was doing my hair. She walked through almost every step with me and I really felt that we were working as a team to get me what I wanted. I wasn't pushed into buying a ton of products either. In fact there are no products for sale at Shampu. What a pleasant relief from the usual hard sell I have experienced in the past from other salons and stylists. I am so happy that my sister-in-law told me about Angie at Shampu.
The Best Haircut and Highlights I have ever had!! – I have been a client of Angie's for almost 10 years. She has spoiled me to having perfect hair. I could go on and on about Angie and how my hair has always been perfect everytime I see her, but I'm sure people say those things all the time... basically with Angie it is different for everyone, and I can only speak for me but the one thing that I know my frineds and I agree upon is that we all love our hair and we all adore Angie for being there for us. Angie is the stylist I refer everyone to. Do yourself a favor and check this stylist out especially if you are ready to feel pretty again!! : )
The Best Hairstylists in Long Beach – Shampu in Long Beach is the best salon for hair. I have been a client of Angie's for the last 6 years. I have followed her from Orange County to Long Beach and will continue as long as she is a hairstylist. I refer Angie to everyone. She is the type of hairstylist that really gets it. She listens and really makes her clients feel like the two of you are working as a team to get the desired look wanted. I have always been extremely happy with my hair since I have been with Angie. It has been 6 yrs since my very first appointment but I will always remember how I instantly felt comfortable with Angie. I was impressed and have continued to be impressed with how much passion this girl has for her work. She throws her entire self into everything she does and the results are always excellent. Six years with the same hairstylist and never disappointed as well as I always look forward to seeing her. What more could one say! Angie is simply the best hairstylist around!
I love my beautiful hair!!! – I recently moved to Long Beach from Canada. I had the same hairstylist for 8 years at home. In the few months that I've lived here I had been unable to find a hairstylist that I felt totally comfortable with and who also had the skills to handle my hair. My hair is not a major challenge but I am very spoiled to having had someone who completely knew my hair and always did beautiful work with my styles. I found Angie through a similar review site but it wasn't until after asking a few people who they went to and Angie's name was mentioned not once but twice that I decided to make an appointment.
I felt comfortable immediately just during our conversation on the phone making the appointment. The results of my appointment with Angie at Shampu were absolutely awesome! Angie taught me so much about hair, as well as actually showed me several easy styling tips so I could get the same results she did the day of my appointment. I am thrilled with my color and haircut! I can actually style it just as good as Angie. I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever been able to do that. My hair even feels better after my color. I can't remember what color line is used there at Shampu but I remember Angie telling me about it and that it actually heals hair as well as colors. Of course I was thinking "Yeah yeah, thats what they all say", but I can actually say I am pleasantly surprised at the results being exactly what she said. My hair feels like my hair, not colored hair. I wish I knew more people here to tell them all about how great this harstylist is. If you are looking for a great hairstylist who cares about what your wants and needs are then Angie at Shampu in Long Beach is the stylist for you, you won't be disappointed!
