I found U Salon by searching the Internet when I moved to this area. It is supposed to be a more affordable version of the upscale Umberto Salon in Beverly Hills. I get that "affordable" in L.A. is definitely a switch from what that meant in the SF Valley where I used to live! My only gripe is that if you get a 2-process color job, they charge you double! Ouch! So a cut & style is around $40-60 depending on how long or short your hair is. And 1-color is $50-60 depending on length also. So for my long hair, it ends up being $60 for the cut & style, + $120 for 2 colors = $180. For the same, I used to pay $80 less in the Valley. But then, I was living in the Valley, and that's no bargain! :D BUT the salon is very spacious & airy and relaxed, the staff is friendly, and I am stuck on Helen like glue! She used to do hair in London at a high-end salon that catered to the Royals and local celebrities. I got her when I asked for a long-hair specialist, and sure enough, my hair looked even LONGER after she colored it, cut it, and styled it! And I look even better than ever!!!! So, the little extra is totally worth it, and it is WAY less than the $300 and up you could end up paying in Beverly Hills. I also love the nail salon - I did not think I could get a pedicure for $14 in a salon w/Umberto's name on it. And they do a very good job. I especially love Quincy's pink & white acrylics - I could stare at them forever! & the girls are very nice. I never get the feeling anyone is talking snarky about me behind my back in another language :). For another $15, which is no more than at any other carwash nearby, you can have your car washed while you get all dolled up. Great find!
Adrimar, is the one stop place for your hair needs! If you are looking for the perfect cut, style, color, or even extensions they have it all here! I have been going to Adriana for 8 years for my hair and I must say she is the best in LA! She has taken my hair through all of my walks of life, as it changes all the time our hair does and a good stylist knows what to do. And I must say i can thank Adriana for all she has done for me on that department as it has burst my confidence. I have had hair extensions now for a year because I had suffered a blood disorder with is known as Anemic, it had caused my hair to go from being extremly bouncy and long and pefect to very thin and not so perfect so with the extensions it helps me in the areas that I lack now for that luster hair! I hope one day that i can build up my body to not have to suffer from this disorder and hopefully get my hair back, but for now the extensions have been great! I love them as noone can tell I have them unless I tell them, Sometimes people are like I love your hair, I say really, well thank my stylist cause their hair extensions they say no way, those are really done good, i must say she is awesome! So look no further then Adrimar one stop place for all you hair needs! Its a family run business, with her sister at her side and her best friend which are all stylsits you can not go wrong!
I was never one to go to a beauty salon (my sister cut my hair). I never shaped my eyebrows or waxed my lip. I work with my hands and am always dirty so why bother. Then about 7 months ago after seeing the Salon and meeting Diana I had a change of heart. She always greets me and all who enter her Salon with Hello Beautiful. That in it self can change a persons day. She then said to me, we are going to bring out the best you possible. At first I thought no way but desided to let her try. Since that first experience I have gone back again and again. The Salon is bright and airy with a great upscale feel. The fixtures and furnishings are modern and classy. Everyone makes you feel comfortable as soon as you step throught the front door. My chosen stylist is Diana. She has cut, colored and styled my hair. Waxed my eyebrows, lip, legs and she has also given me a facial. There is someone on staff that does manicures and pedicures. Just think one stop and you can take care of your needs from head to toe. In all the months I have been going to her salon I have yet to leave disappointed.I go in now and let her do her thing. I have always had great results. So if you are looking to bring out the best you possible or just looking to change stylist, I say give Diana's New Attitude Salon & Spa a try. You won't be disappointed.
