Read a great review of Christine...and now I'm writing one 4/12/2010

JUST GOES TO SHOW CITYSEARCH WORKS! Used to be a model...now I'm going to have a baby. Used to live on the Westside...now I live in the Valley. Things change. So I was looking for a new Salon, one that was closer to my new home. And I was looking for a new look, one that was closer to the new me. Thought I'd cut off all that long hair I'd had all these years- go short. Read a review raving about Christine at Suburbia- 5 stars, 99 reviews, a ""best of CITYSEARCH"" rating & only a few blocks away. Well, I loved Suburbia & I love Christine, mostly because, after a few gentle nudges in the right direction, she made me realize that I didn't want to cut off all my beautiful long hair- and so I didn't (thanks Christine) & I love what she did with it...so thought I would write their 100th review & pay the favor back by helping anybody who like me was looking to find a great Vent Blvd Stylist that you can trust at a solid, full service Salon, with friendly people. The funniest thing was, after leaving the Salon, and looking at Christine's card, seeing that her last name is ""Short"" HA HA HA- well, maybe it's not THAT funny...but I got a laugh out of it. GO SHORT. Pros: Yeah, they're PRO'S Cons: None that I saw more

Brazillian Blow Out/Blonde hair 3/2/2010

I just got my first Brazillian Blowout and Im FLOORED with the results!!!.....Whose hair is this????......I have always had frizzy hair that takes FOREVER to get smooth and even THEN it only lasts a few hours before its all puffy again..... My colorist Tawney told me about the Brazillian Blow out.......I tried it and I am STUNNED at the condition of my hair!!!......And not having to worry about chemical damage is huge for me since Ive been coloring my hair for as long as I can remember......even the color is the shiniest its ever been !!( Tawney specializes in blondes and shes absolutely amazing.....my color has never been better...people actually think Im a natural blonde! (shhhh)......our secret.... To ANYONE who is thinking about getting this done ....DO IT!!..... It cut my blow drying time from 20 minutes to 6!!!!....AND I actually let my hair AIR DRY today and its smoother and silkier than it EVER has been even after a professional blow out....without doing anything to it!!.....FREEDOM from the hair dryer......Priceless. Now every day is a good hair day....THANK YOU TAWNEY!!....Not JUST for the best blonde my hairs ever been but for making it even better with this treatment!!! Pros: Best colorist /Brazillian blowout more

I LOVE THIS PLACE! 11/5/2009

i came to suburbia for the first time a few weeks ago. i was really nervous about changing stylists, but MARY put my mind at ease with her in depth consultation and her extensive knowledge about her trade. she gave me the best haircut i've ever had! that's saying a lot because i've tried numerous stylists in the past. MARY, you have a client for life! can't wait to try color with you! Pros: friendly staff, reasonably pricing, talented hair artists Cons: nothing! more

blonde to brunette 10/8/2009

i saw ashlee and we went from blonde to brunette, she was very thorough and did exactly what i wanted! more

I shouldn't let You Read This about Christine... 9/18/2009

because I might not be able to schedule an appt if people start to find out what I learned when I went to Suburbia for the first time last week not knowing what to expect. Two friends of mine have been raving about Christine Short, one of the stylists there. Well, I have to say they were right- she did an awesome job with my hair. My hair had kind of become a thing...I've been on this endless search and no one could get it right. (I'd been wondering, what had happened to all the good stylists) It was straight and long and a color brown that, well, honestly I've never been too thrilled about. Overall just rather listless and dull. It needed something it used to have, but I didn't quite know what. Christine made suggestions to help my hair have movement. She is the first hairstylist to get my color and layers right in years!!! She is awesome! She totally knows what she is doing, is meticulous and precise and very friendly. I love my haircut and will go to her again. She has an excellent chairside manner, she's really funny and puts you at ease, She listens, and best of all, she confidently gives you suggestions for your hair if you are unsure. Pros: friendly attention + amazing skills=Miracles performed daily Cons: only a little trouble scheduling an appt w/ the right person more

AMAAAAAAAAAZZZING!!! 9/12/2009

I have been searching for an amazing stylist and a salon with a great vibe for sooooo long and I FINALLY found it!! My hair has never looked and felt so fabulous!! I dont think ive ever been complimented this much! Im SO excited, that I want to share my experience with EVERYONE!! Not only were the prices and services SO great, but the energy is just WOW! Seriously, the staff is just so fun and friendly, and makes me feel great about coming in to get my hair done. I also discovered a DJ night with wine and cheese on one of my visits!! I guess the DJ only spins once a month, but the wine and cheese is EVERY Thurs. I highly HIGHLY recommend this hair salon to anyone who cares about great service, skilled stylists, awesome prices, and just an exciting place to be :) Pros: EVERYTHING! Plus wine, cheese and a DJ!!! Cons: NOTHING! more

The Best Salon I've Found Yet! 9/11/2009

After a terrible, horrible salon experience a few years back (my bangs got burned off in a careless bleaching endeavor--by a ""professional""!!), I called Suburbia Salon to save me...and they did. My hair was quickly nursed back to health and has never looked better! The vibe is great, the stylists & staff are genuinely friendly, super cool, and extremely knowledgeable. Not to mention my first appointment ever was on a Thursday night where complementary wine, paired with a delicious cheese platter, was there for the clients to enjoy---what a treat! (Yes, they do this every Thursday night!!). Ever since then, I've been a happy, dedicated client, and have even stepped into the world of facials---please go in and get one! Pros: kickass atmosphere, friendly staff, great location Cons: zero more

Facial Haven 5/14/2009

I loved loved loved my facial!! It was exactly what I needed. Andrea was super nice. She saw that I needed a little eye brow maintenance and did it gratis. I will definitely go back! Pros: great facials Cons: no way! more

Not really worth the money 5/7/2009

I went here for the first time for an eyebrow wax as it's right down the street from Universal Pictures where I work. First off I was a bit surprised at how expensive it was to ""valet"" my car ($4). With the prices the salon charges for their services, the valet service should be complimentary or at least $2 MAX. I was greeted by Andrea who was very sweet and friendly. She led me back to her waxing room which essentially felt like a closet shoved into the back. Not relaxing in the slightest and I could hear the loud conversations between the other stylists which made it even less so. Andrea did an ok job with my brows. It wasn't great, and took under 10 minutes. Upon further examination outside in the light, I noticed a ton of hairs she didn't wax/tweeze! It was very incomplete, shapeless and CERTAINLY not worth $25!!! Burke Williams Spa charges $30 for a brow wax and the experience is about 10x more relaxing and thorough. I was considering getting my hair cut at Suburbia before I had my appointment and now I definitely will not be going back! Pros: Friendly staff Cons: Pricey, Expensive/worthless valet parking, Rushed, Loud more

Don't Go Here! 4/11/2009

When I arrived at Suburbia, I was relaxed and looking forward to a bit of pampering - The girls who worked on me were sweet and did an okay job on my color but they were rushed and running around like geese with their heads cut off - They were engaged in several other conversations with workers and clients while they were tending to me and often seemed distracted and overworked. One even complained about all the work they made her do and how it is nearly impossible to work there. I couldn't wait to get out of there and felt like I needed to get to a Yoga class to just calm down - the place felt like a factory - too many people and not enough help - The manager spoke with me and basically made lots of excuses and ended up telling me to go somewhere else next time. I called the owner 3 times to discuss my experience and she never called me back. If you want good treatment and to get what you are paying for (this is place is pricy) definitely do not go here! Pros: girls who work there! Cons: management is terrible, factory atmosphere, rushed more

The best waxer ever!!! 4/8/2009

I just got a full leg and brazilian wax with AMANDA (who recently joined Suburbia from Belle Visage) and she was fabulous!! It was the quickest and most painless waxing I have ever had in all of my waxing years!!!!!!!! I'm addicted now!! more

Andrea is awesome! 3/31/2009

I am currently a hair client of Jen's at Suburbia and recently tried out their skin care and waxing services with their new esthetician Andrea - AWESOME!! It was sooooo great to get my hair done and get all my waxing at the same time! I have since booked a facial with Andrea, and it was amazing . . . very relaxing, and my skin was glowing for days. I HIGHLY recommend Andrea (in addition to the fabulous hair services provided at this salon). Enjoy! Pros: great vibe, friendly and bubbly personality more

Awesome experience from start to finish with Jesse!! 3/3/2009

I recently moved over the hill and a friend told me about this really nice salon right in Studio City, so I figured I'd give it a try and save myself some time driving over the hill. I consider myself to be ultra picky (type A personality) so I knew I had to be with someone that really listened to what I liked and disliked about my hair. My girlfriend recommended Jesse and he was AWESOME!! I don't think my hair had ever looked so good, and it's costing me less then when i drove over the hill all the time! He is amazing with color, and I try and make it in as often as possible for his blowouts. I don't know what he is doing different, but it is working, I get compliments on my hair all the time. I also sent a girlfriend in for extensions with him and they look amazing. You will have the best time with him while he is doing your hair and leave looking like a million bucks!! Pros: skill and personality, valet more

The Brazilian Blowout saved me!! 1/20/2009

I had heard of the Brazilian Blowout before but was a little weary about trying it because of the price and I was worried it would damage my hair. I am very picky about my hair and needed to make sure that it was right for me and that it wasnt too good to be true. After I consulted with Tanya Porter I decided that I was sick of my unruly curls and frizzy ends and that I would try it out. I AM SHOCKED at the difference it has made to my hair. The texture is AMAZING, the frizz is GONE, and it makes it so much quicker/easier to get ready in the morning to not have to use a flat iron. I highly recommend getting a brazilian blowout with Tanya- It is well worth the money and has changed the way I feel about my hair! The best part about it, is that it lasts for months! Pros: Valet Parking, Good music, and Tanya! more

Great experience with extensions and style at Suburbia Salon 1/20/2009

I was nervous to try a new salon, but I had heard great things about Suburbia and I really wanted a extensions and a new style, so I gave it a shot and I couldn't have been happier! I saw Monique for extensions, color, and cut and she was awesome! I still see Monique, but every now and then if she is not available for a last minute blowout, I will also see Ashlee and Angela (they do great styles as well). I love this salon, they have managed to make me look beautiful and feel great, and for that I am grateful! Pros: amazing extensions with monique, $4 valet if you can't find parking, happy people more

Best salon experience Ive ever had! 1/20/2009

Suburbia Salon has lived up to its reputation as being a welcoming, highly educated, very chic salon that offers a wide range of services. I was lucky enough to find this salon and have been raving about it to all my friends ever since. It's always a little nerveracking to go into a new salon where you dont know anyone, but my experience at this salon was so amazing and way better than I ever imagined that I must let everyone else know. The staff was so friendly and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. My stylist did exactly what I asked for and my hair turned out perfect! I also have to mention Julie, who made me over by giving me the perfect eyebrow wax that everyone has been complimenting me on! This honestly was the best salon experience I have ever had and I recommmend it to all !! Pros: Very skilled stylists and a welcoming attitude! Cons: none :) more

big fan of suburbia!! 1/20/2009

i have been a client at suburbia for about three years now and i have enjoyed every appointment i have been to. given the poor parking situation in the studio city area, i find the valet parking a convenient option, and on the days that i do not want to valet i opt to find neighborhood parking and enjoy my walk to suburbia. i have always been extremely please with my hair and the skill level of my stylist exceeds any other salon i have been to. when my stylist has been out sick or on vacation i have seen two or three other stylists at suburbia and have been just as pleased with the outcome. the front desk always greet me warmly and the overall feeling in suburbia is upbeat and happy. i highly recommend suburbia! more

By Far THE WORST Hair Salon, BIG WASTE of money 12/23/2008

went here based on Citysearch's Best of 2008. First off, I asked for full highlights in red, and picked out the color. After doing pretty much partial highlights on my head and NOT sitting me under a bloywdryer for 15min while she attended to another client, someone else came up and began to wash my hair since the stylist was too busy. After waiting some more, she finally took off the towel and my heart sank. Sitting there, in the remains of her former client (I think she even used the same bib), I could see the red highlights were actually a brassy blond, which looked terrible on my black-brown hair. She then tried to tell me it looked great and started to cut my hair. It literally took her 5 minutes. I pointed out the blond pieces and asked very politely if we might go a little redder. She brushed color on the top front portion of my hair. Mind you, I was getting highlights, so there?s no reason color should be brushed on without foil, let alone for only a portion of my head. After about 5 minutes she took the color off, and took me back to the chair, trying to convince me that she could see the color even though I couldn?t. She opened the ?SOILED? drawer and pulled out some pins. She proceeded to blowdry my hair, pulling & twisting, stabbing me in the ear several times, & blowdrying one area until it began to burn and I had to jerk-away from the pain. I had to do my own ?even cut? test by pulling strands on each side of my head to make sure they were even. They were not. I paid the $240 I was being charged and even left a cash tip since I am not one to be mean, just honest. after requesting for a tip envelope from the receptionist three times, I finally got one, and then was asked for $4 so I could have my keys back. Apparently, valet had just left but I was still expected to pay? apparently, they do not understand what ?valet parking? actually is. Overall, the worst in service and style I've ever experienced...Supercuts could probably do better! Pros: free mediocre coffee Cons: everything, including 22 year old stlists with no real experience cutting or coloring hair more

John rocks! 11/18/2008

I was a new walkin at Suburbia, despreate for a change, when I was paired up with John. I couldn't have been happier with the result of my hair. John is a colorist only and boy did he rock out my color!!! I would highly recommend this amazing colorist . . . not to mention that the salon is great too, the vibe is so happy and energetic, it was fun to be there! Pros: Valet (since the parking in the area is not great) more
