Don't forget to confirm price before service! 6/2/2010

When I called to schedule my appointment for an all-over-color, I was told that my service pricing started at $85.00. I do have long hair, so I know that extra product can increase the cost, so I was prepared for that. However, my bill was $145.00!! Pros: Tita, my stylist was nice and talented. Cons: Price! more

The Only Place I Go! 1/25/2010

I have been going to Melrose Hair Studio exclusively for about 3 years now and would not go anywhere else. My hair has been almost every color of the rainbow and Tita has never made me look trashy or cheap. They are great with color, I would never trust anyone else. Plus! After all that my hair still looks healthy! Not only can they do more creative cuts and colors, but I have had friends go there and get beautiful blond highlights and long layers. A great place with a personal vibe, and stylists who ACTUALLY LISTEN to what you want. If you are thinking of experimenting with any cut or color GO to Melrose Hair Studio. Pros: They really listen to what you want more

Great 11/23/2009

Tita is great and she runs a great shop. Being a male, I don't need anything fancy but I know she can do it all. Pros: Great Cons: Nothing more

Great Salon! 11/13/2009

Ness is great ! Her advice to make my hair look fuller really works. I waited for about 3 days to see if my hair looked as good as the day I actually got them cut and styled by her , and the good news is , they do.. I dont really have to do much to make them great and I am really happy :) Pros: Nice and Friendly Staff more

Adrina is the best 9/10/2009

Ever since I started having my eyebrows threaded instead of waxed, I have never been happier with my brows. Adrina takes her time to get the best possible shape and really listens to you. Not only does she do a fabulous job with eyebrows, she is also very knowledgeable about skin care. She has given me excellent advice that has really helped my skin. I hope to schedule a facial with her soon as I know she will do a fantastic job. Best of all, she is very sweet and always makes her clients feel welcomed. I won't go anywhere else! Pros: perfect eyebrows; reasonable price; more

The Best Facial 8/5/2009

Adrina is amazing. She takes the time to make sure that each and every experience is wonderful and truly cares about her clients..... Pros: amazing more

best brows 8/3/2009

OMG...Best eye brow shaping ever. I went to get my eye brows waxed and adrina said she does threading. I've heard of it, but never tried it. It was wired but cool. She took her time and she really knows how to do brows. I've been to anes**** and she was just as good if not, better. Client for life. And, she is very reasonably priced. Had them done a few days ago, and have gotten so many compliments. Pros: good music more

Thank you Tita 7/8/2009

On a friend's recommendation I reserved a haircut with Tita, the owner. I have very straight fine hair, which unlike curly hair leaves no room for error, so I tend to be a bit nervous about new stylists cutting my hair. I shouldn't have worried a bit because Tita was just great. I told her what I wanted and what has gone wrong in the past with other haircuts but she quickly put me at ease. She took off as much as I told her to, not like some places where they try and convince you to do something different or they lop off too much. I was going to a party that night so Tita spent the time to really glam me up. My friends totally noticed the new cut and thanks to Tita I felt like the belle of the ball! She was so sweet that I wanted to tell other people about her. Parking is easy as Martel has plenty of non-metered spots. Plus the space has a very upscale look without the upscale prices or snooty attitude. Traffic can be annoying in that area, but that's LA for you! Pros: Tita, the decor, easy parking Cons: the traffic in Weho more

BEST salon I've EVER been to!!! 7/1/2009

Melrose Hair Studio is, without a doubt, the BEST salon in LA! I can't say enough about this place: The warm staff, the amazingly skilled stylists and technicians, the fun environment and the fabulous prices!! I could go on and on!!! And I will. Tita is not only the best hair stylist and Colorist I have ever had work on my hair (AND BELIEVE ME, I?M PICKY) but she is the kindest and most generous. She will go out of her way to make sure YOU are happy even when it costs her! I?ve never found that in a stylist my entire life. Not only is it great to have a stylist that you can chat with as she works but a stylist that will deliver exactly what she says she will and more. You can literally sit back and relax! No need to worry about how your hair is going to turn out. To know that I can just let her do her thing and she will give me exactly what I want is worth a million bucks (but her prices are far less than what she is worth!). She will make you look more amazing than you ever have before. I have told all of my friends and now I'm telling you... I will never let another person near this head of hair...It's TITA forever!! She should be styling for the Stars so I?d suggest you book an appointment before they snatch her from us. And I also get my eyebrows and facials done by the Fabulous ADRINA!!! Oh! My eyebrows never looked so good. She is so skilled and precise. She takes all the time in the world with you to get your brows absolutely perfect. Every smart girl knows how important a great set of brows are!! She is so gentle, you barely feel her doing it. I?m often so relaxed while she does her work, she practically has to wake me up when it?s time for me to go. She is more knowledgeable about skin care and health than anyone I?ve ever met. I?ve learned so many great ways to keep my skin looking radiant and healthy. So, while she does her magic, you can either have a great conversation about all of the products she can recommend or you can just sit and laugh with her (She's is a riot and so much fun!) Don?t forget to have her do one of her famous facials for you. You'll relax in a dark room filled with mystical tunes and lovely scents. She gives you a great face massage and works on you for about an hour. It?s the most relaxing thing I?ve ever had done. My skin looked so radiant for weeks! I have such a blast every time I'm at this place, I think I schedule more appointments than actually necessary. I not only have a wonderful time there but I always leave looking better than ever! I'm from NYC and miss my city terribly so I'm pretty sure the only reason I'm still in California is because of Adrina and Tita!!!!

Tita is AMAZING! Best haircut in LA! 6/23/2009

Let me begin by saying that I am a transplanted New Yorker who generally hates all things LA and finds them far inferior to my lovely NYC. Which is why I was so amazed to receive the best haircut of my life from the LA based Tita. And why I've now been happily coming back to her for the last year and a half. Let me break it down for you why she rocks (and why the very very few negative comments below have got to be some sort of plant by her jealous competitors- see I put my actual name up in my review and will go one further and put my email should you wish to contact me for further proof of my claims- gbrackenridge@hotmail) I'm one of those straight guys who obsesses a bit over my haircut and I did all this internet research before I first chose Melrose Hair Studio and Tita in particular. I liked everything I read and then I took the plunge and made an appointment. Okay so let's start with the fact that Tita is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. She isn't pretentious, isn't trying to push you into a stupid style or getting you to buy expensive products, she simply is there to help you look your best. Everytime I'm there we just tell each other stories and spend the whole time laughing. She asks you lots of questions about what you're going for in your hairstyle, she cuts with scissors (not like those cheap hair mills with all their razors), and is the only hair dresser I've met that's so smart she gives you a shampoo AFTER your hair's cut so that you don't have all that hair down your shirt all day. And did I mention the head massages she gives you when shampooing your hair? They're freakin great. Not to mention a guy's cut is all that and still under $40! I loved her so much I got my girlfriend to start using Tita. My girlfriend has long hair that gets highlights and I can tell you that after years of dating Tita's done the best job on it I've ever seen. My girlfriend will not use anyone else now. One time my girlfriend had just gotten highlights in, then decided she wanted them a little brighter and Tita had her come in and then touched them up for free! What hairdresser in LA does that, ladies?! Also, you know Tita has tons of experience at other salons and was only able to open Melrose Hair Studio because she had won such a large group of clients that she had the necessary client base. Finally, what other salon do you know sometimes has parties where they set up DJ's, bring out a full bar and food and reward their customers with facials and dancing? Seriously, my girl and I have had more fun at Tita's parties with her cool staff than at any trendy nightclub. So please support a quality small business like Tita's...and go get the best haircut you'll ever have! Pros: Great Cut, Friendly Atmosphere, Afffordable...and parties! Cons: None. Seriously, none. Go see for yourself. more

Waste of time and money. 6/12/2009

Read the reviews here and decided to give Melrose Hair Studio a try, what a mistake! The owner Tita, was stand-offish and aloof. Asked her for suggestions, but she wasn?t much help. She kept pushing me to do the works; facial, brows, etc. I only wanted a haircut and color. The haircut ended up looking horrendous, uneven and lopsided. The color looked good in the front but the back was hideous, patchy and sloppy. It was so bad that I had to go elsewhere to get it fixed. It was a COMPLETE waste of time and money. The rates were reasonable, but not if the final outcome looks bad. Don?t come here, or at least try another stylist there, not Tita! Pros: Hip, trendy area. Cons: Service, Haircut, Color, Poor Execution all around. more

Mr. Randall Rocks!!! 5/18/2009

I recently went to get my curly hair relaxed and cut because it was time for a change. I met Mr. Randall, and he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Mr. Randall not only got my curly hair super straight, but he gave me a awesome hair cut as well. I received soooo many complements when I went to work......they asked me where I got my hair cut, and I told them Melrose Hair Studio, and told them to ask for the very talented Mr. Randall!!!!! more

First Time Facial.......Amazing 5/15/2009

On the suggestion of a girlfriend, I recently had my ""first time"" facial, cleanser, massage, the whole thing and it was amazing. Adrina really took care of me and said she was proud of me turning off the bb for an hour. She also hooked me up with a lemon cream scrub and moisturizer. Mornings are looking much better now. I highly recommend these guys. I am new man, off to yoga. G Pros: Pampering Staff, Professional, Affordable, and Location Cons: That an hour doesn't last longer. more

Talented stylist and esthetician 5/3/2009

I had threading done here for the first time, I have never had anyone do sure a through and detailed job, it has been 3 weeks since I went and my brows still look amazing. Thanks Adrina! The stylist Tita was really talented and listened to me and very chic. The salon is clean and well lit and is upscale without being overwhelming. Just be careful parking in the area, it is close to a residential area so the parking can be tight Pros: Great service more

Mr. Randall is fantabulous!!! 3/25/2009

The salon is bright and inviting. They make sure you're comfy whether it's with a glass of water, tea or wine. Great location and friendly multi cultured staff. Mr. Randall is very accommodating and is able to convince his clients to take risks that ultimately work out in the end. Able to work with all types of hair. Amazing colorist!!!!! I am very happy with my hair!! Kina Pros: Best hair care I've had in LA Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Amazing stylist, Schuyler M! 2/23/2009

I just recently moved to West Hollywood & had to find a new hair studio, so I called Melrose Hair Studio and set up an appointment with Schuyler. He was awesome! He pulled out a book of hair color samples & spent the first part of the appointment trying to understand exactly what hair color I was trying to achieve. He was also really patient in explaining how the coloring process worked. I'm Asian, so I have dark dark brown hair (practically black) and I wanted to color it light brown with blond highlights. He told me that he couldn't guarantee that it would turn exactly the shade I wanted, but that he'd definitely try to get as close as he could. He also gave me a price estimate partway through the process, so I knew exactly what to expect. When he unveiled my hair, I was amazed! It was the exact color I was hoping for, and I also loved the haircut he gave me. I've gotten positive compliments from all of my friends. The price was very reasonable for the amazingly stylish color/cut I received. I would recommend Schuyler to anyone. The studio also has a very pleasant, relaxing vibe. I'll definitely be back. more

My FAVORITE Styist!!!! 12/23/2008

I have been a client of Titas for 7 years, I moved from the area many years ago but still make the trip to Melrose Hair Studio to have Tita cut my hair. I refuse to go anywhere else!! I highly recommend both Tita and her studio, its a great business that I hope continues to have the sucess it deserves! Pros: Tita! Cons: No Cons for me more

Highly professional and reasonably priced services 9/5/2008

I've been coming here every month since the salon had opened. Now I bring my kids too. Everything is professionally done and reasonably priced. Tita - our hairdresser- is great! Adrina does great facials. I hope that they stay in business forever - I never want to go to another salon again! Pros: Very relaxing place with nice music Cons: Street parking more

Mr Randall is a GENIUS ! He made me GORGEOUS ! 8/30/2008

O M G ! He is the MASTER ! He just looks at your hair, the shape of your face, your skin and eye color and just gives you the PERFECT look. I was a little anxious to try something new but it turned out just FABULOUS ! more
