Maxx is very professional. I have been going to him for many years and i love his haircuts,hair dye, and blow dry. He is a sweet nice guy. Doesn't know much english but dont be afraid to try him. The best hair dresser.
I love this salon for so many reasons. Parking is easy the space is beautiful with open windows overlooking ventura boulevard. The receptionists are so hard working and helpful and easy to talk to. The vibe is really cool, And every single stylist in there is so talented and amazing and well educated. They also stay up to date on all the latest trends and fashion. I love going there.
It seems like all my friends get their hair done at Butterfly Loft, but for some reason I was sticking with my old stylist. I finally switched after reading an article about the salon in a magazine, where they were voted the best salon.The salon looks amazing. It's big, open, lots of windows, great artwork, and it has a really cool vibe.The stylists I switched to is Jenny. She's really great at what she does, she's down to earth, personable, and easy to chat with. She does my highlights and cuts.I also see Sarah Michelle for my brows, and she gets them just right.I rarely write reviews, but this place is very deserving.
she is the best at it, and i will go there again.
I've going to this place off and on for about a year now because I live close by. It's convenient being on Ventura and close to home, but I wouldn't call it my favorite. I do like the look of the place, who ever the owner is has great taste when it comes to interior design. As for the stylists working there I have been to a few and they were all sweet and knowledgable. I wouldn't say they were the most professional-looking that I've seen. I've been to salons that must have had a dress code or maybe just extremely professional stylists because they seemed to all dress in-sync and were all dolled up funky yet professional looking. At this salon, there's a lot of jeans and sandals and greasy messy hair. If I was doing hair and trying to sell myself, I would have my hair done perfectly every day. The front desk was weak the last couple times I went in. They used to have a girl there who was super sweet, but I didn't see her the last time time I went. I had a conversation with her the first time I went in because I didn't know at that time I needed to call in advance for an appointment, but she explained to me the way they work there. She came and sat down with me at one of the couches and let me vent my week to her. You don't find many genuine people like that! All in all, if this place hired a better front desk staff again, instilled a dress code, and kept the place A LOT cleaner, maybe I would put this salon higher up on my list. And maybe a few more stars ;-)
WOW! This place was amazing. The guy I saw was Nick. I got the best cut & color I have EVER had. He was super nice as was everyone in the salon. The girl who helps him was very sweet and so was the receptionist. I have never gotten as many compliments on my hair before as I did after I went to this salon. The place was beautiful with some cool art on the wall and they had a HUGE parking lot in the back and parking was free. I am definitely a fan. I have found my new salon - Thanks Nick & everyone at Platinum Salon.... you guys Rock!
Absolutely awful!! The "stylist" I believe his name is Nick, and hes the owner, did not know what was, or how to do, a simple layered haircut. He was very unfriendly. He ignored me in the middle of dying my hair to go eat in front of me. The cut was bad, and I told him and he said it is supposed to look choppy because it is dry. He also did not have a clue how to do an ombre highlight. He created a straight line across the middle over my hair between very light and my natural very dark. I questioned this at the beginning but he assured me it would be fine and it would blend naturally. then he left me sitting for to long in the chair while he ate and chatted. another stylist came to look and told him I was done. She then washed me because he seemed to have no interest in doing it. I ended up with a straight line separating the light and dark, which she tried to fix with toner, but it did not work. I asked her about the cut and as well and she just said it was okay but she didn't want to fix it. then she dried my hair, which came in the lifebooker deal, but they tried to charge me $30 to have a regular blow dry, and said she would style my hair in tight pinned up curls because i wanted it to look good the next morning when i left on a trip. she didn't even finish blow drying it and then she sent me out the door because i was the last client and she wanted to close up and go home. You could tell when I left that they knew they did a bad job. unfortunately I had already paid on lifebooker so I was out the money. I never got one complement on my hair, not ever a did you do something to your hair, until I fixed it on my own with a box, and got a $12 haircut, most likely because they did not want to mention that it did not look good before. Never again going to trust my looks to a company because I got a "good deal" on the internet!!!!
Farideh is a hair genius! I came to her many years ago with a horrible situation. I had been pulling out large sections of my hair (trichotillomania) which resulted in very large bald spots - (plus terrible color) and I was miserable. I was hiding in my home - embarrassed to go anywhere - much less have her see it. But Farideh was very discreet and understanding. Farideh artfully and skillfully put in hair extensions - color repair - and cut. My hair came out AMAZING. I was free! I have been to many "hair extension specialists" and no one could accomplish what she did with my hair. She spent a great amount of time with me and the extensions stayed in for a very long time. I continue to see her to this day and still get color and hair extensions. She saved me... I now drive in from Pasadena to see her. Nobody does it better.
