I took an out of town family member to this salon for service. It was recommended by an acquaintance (a local ""celebrity"" newscaster). Since my family member had a short style, I felt Jose might be a good stylist selection. I was extremely disappointed in the atmosphere and treatment.\r
The atmosphere is that of a cosmetology school. It is very distasteful if you are accustom to high end salons. The stylists look and act (talking, gossiping, eating at stations) like what you might expect at a cosmetology school. My regular hair stylist is Frederic Fekkai and although I was not at Jose Eber to personally receive a service, the staff felt compelled to give unsolicited advice on what was ""wrong"" with my hair. \r
I have been going to salons in Beverly Hills for years and NEVER in my history have I been pulled aside and asked if I could afford a service! Jose Eber Salon tops them all. Can you imagine the staff trying to actually humiliate their clientele? If they treat locals this way I can only imagine what they do to all those poor tourists! I felt like I was living a scene from ""LA Story"": What might you order? I might like the duck. You can't.- You can't. Why? With this financial statement, you think you can have the duck? Where do you summer? Excuse me? Where do you spend your summers? Here. The chicken.- You can have the chichen.. Where's the camera crew? This woman didn't just ask me if I could afford the service at this dump? This experience was like a parody of LA.\r
While Jose' may be a wonderful person, extremely charismatic and charming, I will never set foot in his salon again. The place is in dire need of a major overhaul with major policy changes and a more upscale mannered staff who provide a higher level of customer service.I vote this the worst experience I've ever had in a salon - not due to the service but due to the poor manners of ignorant staff. Don?t go in expecting the Peninsula treatment because instead you?ll get the Motel 6.
Cons: Rude Staff, Atmosphere, Attitude
