I came to California with a friend in March, 2011 to help her cope with the death of her brother. I was fortunate enough to get to stay for a month, which just so happened to be the month of my birthday. As a gift, my friend treated me to a day of shopping, in Santa Monica. We just stumbled upon the Dino Clark Salon and went inside to check it out. We were really happy with the service we received while inquiring, so we made appointments for the following day. I didn't have a clue who I wanted working on my hair, I just told her that my best hairstylists in the past have been men. She made me an appointment with Adis, and she couldn't have made any better recommendation! He was absolutely wonderful! He made my visit to the salon something to write home about! He foiled, washed, cut and styled my hair, and I have never left any salon as satisfied as I did that day! As a matter of fact before I headed back to the East Coast, I had to find a reason to go back there, even if it was only for a wash and style. Never in my life has anyone done my hair, and sent me away longing for more! I recommended him to my friend and she was totally impressed with him as well! My color and cut were amazing, and when he used the blow dryer on my hair, it looked as if he had used a flat iron. I loved it! It is now mid May and I have returned to California and will not leave before having Adis do my hair. If at all possible,no matter how many miles I must travel, I will never let another person touch my head! So to anyone out there considering a new salon, Dino Clark is the one! And as much as I would like to keep him all to myself, Adis is amazing and I'm sure you will leave there with beautiful hair and a smile!
