Since moving to the west coast I never dreamed it would be difficult finding a stylest that has mastered the art of Blondes. That is until my boss reccomended Alamode Hair salon in California. My friend and I decided to take the long trip (4 hrs) and turned out it was well worth it. The team at the salon took the time and focus to ensure that my friend's extentions were perfect and that my hair color was the most amazing, unique shade of blonde with absolutely no damage! I know nothing about doing hair, but what I do know is that I have never left a salon so satisfied! To thumbs up for Alena and her awesome team at Alamode Hair Salon!

I had a horrible experience at this salon. It was actually my first time dying my hair and i wanted to get it done professionally so that there wouldn't be any mistakes a few days before a major event i had coming up. Alina did my hair and did NOT understand what i wanted, instead she did what she thought was suitable which was about 5 stands of highlights which did not make a difference in my long hair and charged me $98. I came out the salon feeling ripped off and my hair did not look any different then when i walked in. I ended up buying a box of color the next day and dying it myself and got better results. Not professional, way too overpriced, just overall not happy with my visit. save yourself the annoyance the money and the time and go somewhere else.

I live in Glendale, but had been trekking over to trendy Silverlake to get my hair done. I just couldn't find the time to get over there, so I finally went to Alina. What was I waiting for?! The salon is sooo close to my house, has plenty of parking and is in a beautiful upstairs loft with views of the mountains. Alina really took the time to listen to what I wanted in a haircut and then gave me just what I wanted and needed. I've had so many compliments! The salon was very busy that day, so like a good restaurant, I think a busy salon is a sign of a good salon with happy customers. I'll be going back soon : )

Thank Goodness for A la Mode Hair Studio and Maria Blankevoort! I am a new client here and for the past 20 years have been going to the same salon in Glendale, when my stylist decided to move! (How dare she! hehe) I was very sad to see my stylist move because it's so difficult to find someone that you love and trust to do your hair.
I am an older woman, and the older I get the more picky I become about my hair and who styles it, so naturally I was a little hesitant to try someone new after 20 years but Maria was HIGHLY recommended by my old stylist and so I trusted her opinion and went. I was PLEASANTLY surprised. She is a young, sweet girl and listened to my needs and was very patient with me. I know it's hard being the new stylist when a client is so set in their ways, but she surpassed every expectation and I must say I will be a returning client. I couldn't be any happier!
The Salon itself is clean, and they offer snacks and drinks and made me feel very comfortable in my first experience there. Great Salon and talented stylists. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I have been coming here over a year and my experience has been awesome. The girls are very friendly and professional. Alina has been taking care of my highlights and extentions. People give me so many compliments on my hair. Love, love this salon. I would definately recommend this place & my hair stylist Alina to anyone.

I am absolutely disgusted by Maria Blankevoort actions at this salon.
She didn't listen to what i wanted, she destroyed my hair, and on TOP of that, she offered to fix it, and then flatly changed her mind! so unprofessional! she left me with fried, ugly hair! COMPLETELY HORRIBLE!!
the cut is bad, the color is muddy, dingy, and whacked, and NOT WHAT I WANTED!, and literally makes me cry.... as a friend said, my hair is now: 'a hot mess' what a terrible experience, on every level. I am truly devastated.

The moment you walk into A'La Mode, you know that you're not in any typical hair salon. The space is goregous. It really matches my aesthetic. I was referred here by a close friend because the place I had been going to closed down. (btw there seem to be a hundred different hair salons in Glendale).
My stylist was Maria. I needed the whole deal. I needed to touch up my roots, I need some highlights and a cut. It had been a couple of months since I had my hair done.
My hair turned out great. I didn't have one complaint about how it looked. Maria did a fantastic job and she was so nice. I spent a pretty penny at the salon and that was the only drawback that I could find. I'm not really used to paying so much for my hair. I do have to say they did a fantastic job.

Maria did an absolutely AMAZING job on my color and extensions. She is very professional and skilled at what she does, and it definitely shows in her work! The salon was very nice and had a positive, upbeat atmosphere, which made my experience that much more enjoyable! I have never received so many compliments on my hair before! It's extremely hard to come by a stylist that you are constantly happy with the results you get, and Maria always delivers! Could not be more content! Thank you Maria for making me beautiful!

Getting a facial from Lindsey was relaxing, rejuvenating and FUN! Not only does Lindsey give you the ultimate treatment but she also uses products that are all natural and smell delicious. I left feeling so well taken care of of took home with me the oatmeal scrub that she used on me by SIAN. Lindsey is so attentive and thorough with her treatment I highly recommend you see for yourself.

I've been going to see Lindsey Spray (facialist) for years and she never disappoints! I received the custom facial and she tailored her treatments to my specific problem areas. I have combination skin (oily forehead, nose and chin but my cheeks can get dry) and tend to get some clogged pores on my nose. She did a thorough exfoliation and was very gentle when performing extractions. Afterwords she put a nice moisturizer from Siane on my face as well as an SPF since I was leaving when the sun was still up. I do NOT use beauty products that have sodium laurel sufate or parabins - those things are toxic and the products she uses, from Siane, do not contain any of these ingredients. Lindsey's facials are *truly* good for our skin - what a concept!! Love the service I get with Lindsey, I've already made my next appointment (in 4 weeks) and can't wait to see her again! Thanks Lindsey for making my skin look radiant!

I love going to A' La Mode Hair Studio, they are extremely professional, helpful and talented. Alina is just amazing, she knows just how to make you feel beautiful =). I know I can trust her with my hair and I don't just trust anyone with my hair. Thank you A' La Mode Hair Studio for all your help! I would most definitely recommend her to anyone I know.

Went to A' La Mode after reading all the fantastic reviews on citysearch and im glad i did! As soon as i walked in the door, i was greeted by Alina, the owner/stylist and Baxter, her assitant. Both very very friendly and funny. I showed Alina a picture of the style that I wanted and it came out PERFECT! I really like Alina and Baxter's personality, they were so warm and friendly and i felt like i had been there so many times even though it was my first time!
The salon is super clean, inviting and modern. I would recommend this place to everyone because it is not pretentious at all. Just great service, smiles and quality work! At the end, i was very delighted at how my hair looked, the cost (very reasonable) and the fact that Alina was very honest and not pushy! she told me honestly not to get my hair colored (even though it would've made her earn more that day) and did not push me to buy products. (though i wish i did!!!)
Will come here again and bring my husband, friends and family!
LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! Thanks Alina and Baxter for an amazing first time salon experience!:)---jen

I would highly recommend her salon to any of my family and friends.

As I was getting ready to write my review, I couldn't help but notice what other people had said about this salon. It's true that you can't please everyone, but it seems that a great majority are quite pleased with their experience. You might ask why it matters what others have said. Well, my experience has been amazing, and I gladly pass along the info of the salon when people ask me where I get my hair done, but I feel reassured that I'm not an exception so if I refer friends and family, I know that they too will have be pleased with the service.
I get my hair cut and colored on a regular basis. I have a very demanding career and unfortunately am not blessed with hours and hours that I can spend in a salon so I appreciate the fact that my appointment time is respected. I've never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes, and that's been usually because I've arrived a few minutes early.
The new location is clean, sleek, and modern. Unlike some places, the product shelves are spotless!!! The refreshment area has cookies, coffee, and juices so in case you're always on the go alike me, you can have a small snack to avoid passing out.
The staff is professional, polite, and friendly. Unlike some of the well-known salons in the city, the staff actually greets you when you walk through the door. They are attentive and happy to assist you should you need anything.
Now about what really matters: my hair! A bad hair day for me translates to an off day so when it comes to my appearance, my hair is top priority. I change my hair style every couple of years, and because I have fine hair, I'm limited to certain cuts. To date, I've been thrilled with my haircuts. And my current color is so rich and fantastic! I'm a tough critic, but I've been pleased so far. Interestingly, even random strangers have complimented me on my hair cut as well as color!
I'd like to leave you with this: you MUST communicate to your stylist what you like and what you want when it comes to your hair. He/she cannot read your mind. Search the internet and take pictures of the cut that you'd like to have. And remember to have realistic expectations. For those of you who watched ""Friends"", you know that having the ""Rachel"" didn't mean you also looked like Jennifer Aniston!
I wish you a great experience and hope that you're just as jazzed about your hair as I am.

About a month ago I went to A' La Mode to get a haircut and had a great experience. The staff were all really nice and helpful. I have been to too many up scale salons that have stuck up staff. I actually had fun being there. About a week ago I went back to get a Brazilian Blowout. That was probably the best decision I have made in a really long time. I absolutely love my hair! Straight, soft, smooth, and best of all no frizz! Alina was an absolute joy to work with.
