I drive by all the time, but saw a special for haircolor (single color) for $35. Why not, so stopped and was able to see someone right away. I liked Roxie a lot and decided then and there to have her cut my hair. (I had an appointment at my usual salon a few days later.) She gave me the best cut I've had in years. I've been going to a Rodeo Drive salon for 10 years, and before that, a Madison Avenue salon in New York for many years. For a third of what I usually spend on a cut, I cut AND colored and have gotten tons of compliments. My friend, also a high-end salon patronne for years, tried Kate and her hair is stunning. These women are awesome! The salon is clean, beautiful, and I'm hooked.

Umberto LA is the best salon for any quick service from blow drys to color ,haircuts,and manicures and waxing,and Hair extentions from Kenny...Best haircuts are from Roxy, Della,Bonnie and Silvana..They listen and give you a great haircut and colors..and always leave you with a great look...And you leave with a smile ..
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.

omg i just had 2 write a review i was a so so red head ( not naturally) .and i just had my color done here its amazing .. my friend had me go to her stylist & i was hesitent i didnt really want to leave my stylist, but i went along anyway , i am so glad i did . i got her girl bonnie shes super sweet, stylish & fun . she recomended i should go deeper red with my color and leave some of my lighter red (old color) 4 contrast . so i let her go 4 it. she did some trick with foiling in conditioner. then she did her thing and actaly expained what she was doing & why, i loved that. anyway i had a three step process and my last step was an allover gloss ( never had that b4) but it was worth it. my hair is so shiny and soft it looks so much better i didnt realize i was a dull copper b4. my eyes look brighter and the old copper pieces left out in foils r shiny & brighter from the gloss. im so excited 4 my hair, it wasnt expesive either for everything she did 4 me it was 190 plus tip, not bad i usually am paying over 200 . she didnt have time 2 cut me but my friend had a cut a blowdry same day it looked fantastic . ill be back for sure , make sure you get a referal though, i just loved bonnie ..but i did see some stylists there with just no style it seemed i saw the same color & style on every girl that came in or left. so be sure to get a name from a friend or if you can get in with bonnie you will leave happy. other wise you do take a chance on who you get.
