Forme is a great salon and spa, I got to Stephanie for waxing and she does a fabulous job. She is quick, thorough and waxes as painless as a waxing can be. Ixie does a great Brazi...

Forme is a great salon and spa, I got to Stephanie for waxing and she does a fabulous job. She is quick, thorough and waxes as painless as a waxing can be. Ixie does a great Brazilian blow treatment, she too is quick, thorough and talented. I highly recommend forme. more

Quality Salon, Quality Staff! 10/22/2010

I love, loooooove forme salon! I have been to a few people in there for hair cuts and color (Ixie, Sharon, Lynette, Jennifer, Jeannie to name a few) and I can honestly say I trust the salon as a whole! (I do have favorites ;) You cant say that about many salons in L.A. You have to start by training there as a assistant to do hair at Forme, I like that, and they have great coffee and oreos!!! I recently got the Keratin Blow Out Treatment, my hair looks great, it really does work miracles, my blow dry (on my own hair by myself) takes 10 minutes and looks really good! They also have a girl, Stefanie that does facials and waxing too! I got a facial once, it was amazing, I NEED to find the time to do it again, she does my brows often and I have to say, she is the best! more

Sharon Makes Me Love My Hair 9/16/2010

Sharon has been cutting my hair for ten years. She does cut and color every time. I adore her. She is smart and fun and I love going to see her because she is so good at balancing creativity (she's a genius with hair) and pragmatics (I have never been shocked, but I have never been bored,either). She knew what to do with my hair when I played professional volleyball. And, as I transformed myself into a corporate marketing type, Sharon knew how to transform my look to reflect who I was changing into. I think one of the hardest things in life is to envision who we want to be and where we are going. So many times, Sharon has been able to help me envision the change I want to make before I'm able to articulate it. Also, haircut bonus: Sharon is super interesting and insightful and I love talking with her while she's doing my hair. more

Ryan is a Hair God 9/4/2010

I followed Ryan to Forme when he left his last salon. He's been cutting my hair for five years and he's fantastic! I don't even tell him what to do, I just sit in his chair and let him work his magic. The salon itself is lovely--clean, relaxing, and everyone is super nice. I can't recommend it (and Ryan!) highly enough. more

They've got magic! 1/15/2010

Adena, my stylist at Forme Salon makes me look beautifu! I came to her with a mess. I hadn't cut my hair in years. As I've gotten older my hair has become dry, frizzy and half curly. Adena talked with me, assessed my hair needs and developed a hair style that is fun, sexy and that I can manage. I love my hair. Thank you Adena. Pros: Talent more

Stephanie is the best waxer in SM 8/24/2009

Stephanie, the aesthetician, is awesome. I was actually told by three different men that I have perfect eyebrows. What man notices perfect eyebrows? Her brazilian wax is as painless as a bikini wax can be. I was recently engaged, and I swear her super smooth bikini waxes had something to do with it. My skin was glowing after one of her mini-facials. I can't wait to try the full one hour facial. I feel totally at ease with her, even when she is waxing ""down there."" Thanks Stephanie! My fiance thanks you too! Pros: I have perfect eyebrows Cons: terminally addicted to her facials more

The Best Highlights, Cut & Style EVER! 4/19/2009

Sharla is now my new earth angel. For over 30 years, I have been highlighting my hair. Several people recommended Sharla to me over the years, so I finally tried her for full highlights, a 2-inch cut and restyle, along with a new style. Without exaggeration, all three were the best I've ever had. She listened to my needs and wishes for my hair; she took her time and never rushed; she knew what she was doing; and she was kind, respectful, professional, and had a great sense of humor, too. I don't mind someone being a perfectionist when it comes to my hair. I now have a new home and stylist for my hair needs. I watched her styling others' hair while I was there and could tell that they were also happy with her work. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best hair work at a reasonable price, in a stellar location, and in an uncluttered and relaxing salon. Sharla is the best! Pros: Great location and relaxing ambiance more

LYNETTE ROCKS MY HAIR 3/29/2009

lynette took me from Brentwood house wife, to a house wife with an edge, and i have never looked back. My hair color is always the perfect blonde and the haircuts are never the same twice. She has been doing my hair for over 12 years and i always leave the salon feeling wonderful. The salon has a staff that makes me feel relaxed and Lynette's assistants always take care of me. Stephanie does my waxing. Lynette is one of the owner's of Forme salon which is modern and calm. Good going Lynette see you in four weeks for another great color. Pros: LOCATION more

Cynthia is the best! 2/6/2009

I love Forme Salon. I've been going there for about a year and half now. It was hard to find a salon when I first moved to LA that fit my budget, schedule, and location, but this salon provides all 3--and, the best service to boot! The salon itself is has very clean lines, with a modern edge and humble atmosphere. You really feel relaxed when you're there. And there's definitely no attitude, which I've experienced at other salons in the area. I would highly recommend Cynthia. She's only a level 1 stylist, but that means nothing in terms of the quality she performs on your hair! She's really sweet, welcoming, and honestly cares about making your hair look and feel the way you want it to. I've loved my hair each time I've had her do it, and her schedule has always been very accomodating. I have nothing bad to say about this place! Pros: great service & very easy going Cons: none! more

Friendly atmosphere and wonderful stylist-Nicole!!!! 2/1/2009

It was by coincidence that I happened to stumble on this salon when I was in Santa Monica. Its a cute modern salon on Santa Monica Blvd (near 3rd street promenade). The salon actually takes walk ins and has an esthetician as well!!! There is one particular stylist that cut my hair, Nicole. She is very friendly and professional. I have been back to her ever since. She takes the time to listen to my particular needs and she has exceeded my expectations everytime. In general, the salon is easy going and friendly. I feel very comfortable there. I would reccomend Nicole and this salon to everyone. more

Best Hair Sylist I've had and great atmosphere 12/22/2008

I had frequented several salons in the Santa Monica & Venice areas for years, Forme is by far the best I've been to. Everyone is extremely nice and accommodating. I've never had a place where each time my haircut has come out perfect. If you have the chance ask for NADA, but I'm sure they have a roster of talented stylists. I'm very fickle with my hair and thought I would let people know that Forme is definitely a place to go. Pros: Parking more

5 star customer service.... 12/4/2008

I was in the Santa Monica area searching for a salon. Forme was recommended by a fellow swimmer.\r I walked in and was greeted with a smile and a true concern for my concerns. I asked to speak with a stylist who could just give me an idea of what to do with the terrible haircut I had received about 3 weeks prior. Ryan was referred to me and he sat down with me to discuss the present situation of my hair..expecting recommendations only, he asked if he could snip my hair a bit here and there..he basically cleaned up my disaster and wouldn't accept any compensation...He know has a client once my hair is long enough to trim and color...he was just great..Thanks Ryan, I will recommend you to others! And I will be back! more

Magnificant 10/9/2008

Forme salon is one of the best salons that I have been to. The salon creates a very classy ambiance with a very courteous staff. My hair dresser Nada Vue always performs a very percise creation with my hair. I do not trust just any hair dresser with my hair but she throughly understands my wants and incorporates that with her creativity and I always receive praises for how wonderful my hair looks. I can only say so much you have to try it to beleive it. more

You'll never go anywhere else! 7/27/2008

Forme salon has a GREAT, casual atmosphere with very professional people. Both men and women alike will enjoy great cuts and color. My hair is VERY fine and I'm really picky about who cuts it. All the stylists at Forme are experienced, well-trained and collaborate well with each other. Ixie is an absolute miracle worker, but you also can't go wrong with any other stylist there. They even take walk-ins and it's in a great location near Santa Monica Library. You'll never go anywhere else after you visit Forme Salon! Oh, and the waxing and massages are great too! Pros: Parking in back, good hours, great atmosphere, very friendly more

Amazing full service salon and spa in Santa Monica!! 7/1/2008

I created an account on Citysearch just to write this review. I recently moved to Encino, CA from Iowa City, IA. One of my major priorities was to find a hair stylist/colorist around the area, as soon as possible. I began my Citysearch for salons in Santa Monica because although I don't live there, I start work in August at UCLA-Santa Monica. will be around that area a lot. During the search, I came across this wonderful salon, Forme. It received excellent reviews, so I decided to make an appointment. I was nervous, though. I planned to start fresh with a whole new cut and color. Looking at different hair styles in magazines, I decided on a shoulder-length bob and a darker hair color. This new cut would require 8 inches gone! I hoped I chose the right place to receive this new haircut. My friend and I both made appointments for the same time, but with different stylists. I forgot the name of her stylist, but my stylist's name was Doreen. The one thing I loved about this place was that you can chose stylists from level I to level IV, or owners. Being a poor post-college graduate who hasn't started work yet and just moved to one of the most expensive parts of the country, I couldn't spend too much on my hair at the moment. Well, I must say, the moment I met Doreen, I felt completely at ease! I immediately trusted her with my hair. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the salon and friendliness of the staff. I never felt rushed during the whole process. Doreen actually listened to what I wanted and let's just say I got EXACTLY what I wanted. I will go as far to say that this was the best haircut and color I have ever received. Thanks, Doreen...I will see you in about six weeks for a trim and color touch-up!! \r \r By the way, my friend was very please with her haircut and color as well. We will definitely be returning customers :) more

A Great Stylest 6/18/2008

If you happen to find yourself in the Santa Monica area and are in need of a hair cut do yourself a favor and go check this place out. Ryan Lewis, a master of sheers and comb, cut my hair to a wonderful perfection. Thanks Ryan for a great cut and lifting my day and look to a hole new level. more

Best Salon in CA! 6/17/2008

Forme Salon is awesome! Ixie, one of the owners, cuts and colors my hair. She is great at what she does. Especially with my color! And you can always count on getting a great, stylish hair cut. The staff is extremely friendly! Always greets me with a warm welcome. You don't feel that typical ""we are too cool for you"" vibe that you often experience in other LA salons. And this salon is in one of the trendiest areas of LA...Santa Monica. I've also had a few of the assistants who were in training, cut and color my hair (of course with a more experienced stylist watching) and they've all done a great job. The salon has an extensive training program for those who want to be a great hair stylist. The assistants aren't on their own on the floor until they've proven to be ready. And that gives me great confidence in this salon. I highly recommend Forme Salon!\r \r more

You will NOT be disappointed - forme salon always delivers - and Ixie is THE BEST! 6/17/2008

I have nothing but great things to say about Ixie and forme salon. I would (and do) recommend them to all of my friends. I have never experienced a more professional and relaxing salon experience. Forme is a fabulous top-notch boutique salon, something you would hope to find in Beverly Hills...but without the BH prices. The staff always greet me with the warmest welcome. They never forget my name; they offer me cookies and tea or will hand me a book full of menus and even order me dinner when I come dragging in after a long hard day. I always get the best scalp massage before my cut and long enough that I usually doze off into a peaceful sleep. Ixie is LA's BEST colorist and stylist - there is truly no one quite like her. She is extremely talented, always prompt, stylish, up-to-date on the latest trends, funny, and makes me feel like a princess when I leave her salon. I recently started going to see Stephanie for my bikini wax - and I love her. I used to go to someone that I thought was the best ever, and it was initially hard to make the change but Stephanie has proven to be a complete pro. She never makes me feel uncomfortable and her bikini wax is about as painless as you can get when someone is ripping your hair out! I would recommend forme salon hands-down, without reservation. Give them a try - you will NOT be disappointed! Pros: Great ambience, excellant service, parking convenient, great hours more

Ambience and more...oh yeah, and they do a great job on your hair too! 4/16/2008

I have been coming to Forme since it opened last year, and I have nothing but good to say about it. Ok, maybe parking could be better, but, this is LA for Pete's sake!\r When I come out of the salon, my hair always looks better and feels healthier! Thanks for giving me the confidence I needed about my newfound style!\r I recently got a bikini wax, and I have to say that it was as close to painless as one can possibly get. Honestly! And FAST! \r To sum it up....high profile, low key, and off the charts service--thanks Forme! Pros: Skill level of stylists Cons: maybe parking? Can't really think of any cons.... more
