I've been a loyal customer of Authentic for over 10 years and wouldn’t go anyplace else. What I like most about Authentic is the respect and service that they give their clientele. Jesslyn, the owner, is a very kind person. Every time I walked into the shop I am greeted with a welcoming smile and made to feel as though I am a valued customer. The atmosphere is always calm and relaxing. There is ample reading material as well as television and light Christian music or soft jazz. And this is one of the only shops I know of that does not allow foul language, excessive noise. As a devout Christian woman, I greatly appreciate this. Unfortunately, the internet has made it easy for people to post negative and false information about someone without proof or cause. This leads me to believe that the negative commenter might have some personal vendetta and was out to harm the reputation of this great shop. This is usually do to jealousy or just plain MEAN. So for anyone looking for a great salon that offers the latest styling techniques in weaving, straightening, wraps, short styles, locs, Twists, up-do’s and special occasions, and has great pricing and a comfortable atmosphere, check out Authentic.

I have been a customer of this establishment for 10 + years the location has changed but not the service. Every customer is treated equally the same and the stylists take their time to ensure that you are completely satisfied (if one hair is out of place and not to your satisfaction, the stylist takes the time required to make sure you know that you're valued and not just a dollar sign like other establishments). Yes, this might make the wait time a little longer but for this type of personalized service I make the time in my schedule. Most of the clients have been patronizing this salon for years and therefore it is like visiting with family & friends. Keep in mind that they are striving to keep the environment in a positive flow but as we know the riff raff sneaks in under the radar sometimes.There are some things in life that you can't put a price on and my time at the hair salon falls within that category (we talk, laugh and leave with hairstyles that receive numerous compliments). I would recommend this hair salon to anyone who's looking for gifted hair stylists that care and not just a hair shop.
I used to have my hair done years ago by Paul Vega. Then, I decided to color my own hair & save some money by going to others for a hair cut. Well, let me say this. Mistake! He does a fantastic job with color. I have a beautiful shade of red that does not fade quickly. In the sun, especially, so beautiful. I have thick, curly hair, and no one can cut my hair like Paul. I don't know why it is sooooooo difficult to cut my hair properly and take out all the volume that needs to come out so that the curls look right. But, there is definitely a talent here...hands down...the Best! What is insane is that his prices are the same they've been for at least a few years. $50 for color and $40 for the cut. I think it is a great deal. So, ask for Paul! He is talented, nice, and I guarantee a good job.
I have been going to static salon as long as they have been open, 2 years....in fact my first experience was at the first cancer cut-a-thon they had, as this cause is very near to my heart!! I have always had pleasant and professional experiences here and will continue to patron this establishment. I always feel pampered when I'm there, from the complimentary beverages and treats, the fantastic scalp massage and hand massages, heavenly facial treatments, even my brow waxing is super relaxing!! I think it is great that we have a salon in this community that not only gives me so much love, but also gives back to the community and speacial charitys!! daphne
EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR FAST FRIENDLY SERVICE AT AN EXCELLENT PRICE. I FOUND A ONE STOP SHOP FOR BEAUTY! I LOVE MY HAIRCUT! IT IS SO EASY TO FIX AND TRIMMY CHOSE THE STYLE WHICH I TOTALLY LOVE LOVE LOVE! I WAS ABLE TO GET A PEDICURE & MANICURE WHILE I WAS GETTING MY HAIRCUT!! I JUST WALKED INTO THE STORE AND HAD ZERO WAITING TIME!! WHEN I ARRIVED AT TRIMMY'S I WAS FEELING DOWN ABOUT PERSONAL PROBLEMS, BUT WHEN I LEFT TRIMMY'S I FELT LIKE A MILLION BUCKS! THE BEST PART IS THAT I PAID VERY LITTLE AND GOT A WHOLE LOT! TRY TRIMMY'S! YOU WILL FEEL LIKE A MILLION BUCKS TOO! TELL TRIMMY'S THAT "TRACI SENT YOU".
This is by far the best ever hair salon I've been to! I love the atmosphere. It's a fun vibe with current music playing and all the stylists are friendly and obviously enjoy what they are doing. Lisa May is my stylist and she is incredible. She's been there since the salon opened and I get compliments on my hair all the time. She is great with color (I get mine highlighted). She gives me a Brazilian Blow-out every few months and it keeps my thick frizzy hair where I can do it myself without much effort. We moved from Arizona and I actually drive back to Long Beach to have her do my hair!
I've been a customer for more than 20 years. Jesslyn is the best hair stylis I have ever had. And I tried a few before I settled. I've worn my hair long, short and in between and have always been satisfied. I even refer my out of town guess for a service. They all call Authentic their out of town salon. Jesslyn is, in addition to being one of the best at her craft she is one of the most thoughtful people I know. In fact most of the customer are long time customers like me. It says a lot when you don't want anyone else to do your hair no matter how long the wait.
A friend of mine recommended me to Miguel I had to travel about 100 miles to reach him, but I just had to go since she was a long time customer of his and her hair always looked great! Once I got there he made me feel great with his high class service and great sense of humor! I had hair color done and hair extensions put in. Its now been 3 months and my hair looks like when he first did it its gorgeous!! I'm so happy with him! I recommend Miguel 100% don't dare go to anyone else hes great!! Thank you Miguel your awesome ! love ya

I can say me and and my step daugther was very satisfied with our hair and have scheduled another appointment with her i'm glad i had the chance to find someone to do my hair now that im living in the Orange County area.
THIS SALON IS GREEAT. i highly recommend it to everybody. They basically do everything, haircuts, facials, spa, eyelash extensions, eyebrow tattoos, manicures, pedicures (with spa, ,and back massager machine!) and they also have very good salon products for sale. The salon itself is put together very well, its beautiful! The people there are friendly (cambodian) and they even sell some nice clothes there. I'm happy i found this place :D it just opened! (prices and quality is also very good)
