The Best!!! 8/8/2011

Helmet is by far the best salon that I have found in Los Angeles. A friend / client recommended that I get my hair cut by Maria (one of the owners). There are NO words to describe Maria's talent. She is simply the best! Her attention to detail is impeccable and she has an eye like no other stylist. Since going to her, I have a plethora of clients and friends who now see her regularly because they fell in love with my hair cuts. Also, her blow outs are unbelievable and last me a week! I also started seeing Rhett for my color whose talent is also unparalleled. He takes his time, is extremely thorough and always listens. I adore him. About a year ago, I also decided to do the Brazilian hair treatment with Marqui. She is FABULOUS! The salon itself is gorgeous, spacious, modern, and very clean. I never have an issue with street parking as there is plenty of metered parking on Fairfax as well as residential parking on Willoughby. All of their assistants are kind and accommodating as well. Honestly, this salon is the real deal. The talent here is unprecedented. I challenge anyone to find a better salon with finer stylists. it is just impossible and this is no exaggeration, I assure you. more

Healthy blonde hair..make an appointment with AYA 6/27/2011

Yes it is actually possible to have healthy blonde dyed hair. Aya is AMAZING. I don't know what exactly she does, but OMG when I first went to her my hair was thin and damaged and now my hair is soooo thick and soft and healthy and the most gorgeous blond color. THANK YOU AYA more

Yukari! 1/29/2011

I met Yukari through a mutual friend a couple years ago and she's cut my hair twice since then (she's actually the only person to cut my hair in the last two years). The first time she gave me a short haircut and gave me something different than I'd normally had, and the second time it was to thin out and trim/style my growing mane. That second haircut was in spring of 2010 and people still compliment me on my hair. She's super friendly and will be getting a call from me when I decide to cut my locks next. Thanks Yukari! more

Yukari rules 1/29/2011

I have been going to Yukari for 3 years now and she has moved over to this stylish and friendly salon. Perfect location, and of course my favourite hairdresser... Go Yukari! more

The right hair dresser!! 1/29/2011

Yukari is so great with my curls!!! She always shapes them to give a great balance to my look. Its funny cause before she started cutting my hair i never got some many compliments on my curls. She had the right vision for my hair with had been lacking in other hair stylist. She also has great suggestions for the right products and is a very nice person. Its fun to get your hair cut and talk about the good music and movies with her. more

Aya is Amazing! 9/22/2010

Finding an excellent hair stylist ? especially one who can style male asian hair ? was always challenging. Since Aya began styling my hair, I've been so happy with the results! Positive, fun & enthusiastic, Aya always listens to my hairstyle concerns, offers suggestions and delivers a fantastic cut, so I'm pleased every time I walk out of the salon. AND the salon itself is a beautiful, modern space with easy parking and a friendly staff! You can't go wrong here, and Aya is the best! more

Alexis Roberts 8/17/2009

I followed Alexis from a much closer-to-home salon over to Helmet. I make the trek to see her because I've never been so happy with a stylist. She is marvelously skilled, smart and knowledgeable. Alexis is also a pleasure to spend time with, and keeps things down to earth even as she executes a fancy hair cut. She'll never try to upsell or patronize you, she'll just give you a great haircut and conversation. I'm happy to be one of her many groupies. Pros: Excellent skills, great to spend time with, no nonsense more

Totally Awesome Alexis! 5/19/2009

I've been going to Helmet for a while to see the greatest colorist ever - Rhett O'Donnell, but I'd never gotten my hair cut here. Until Ms. Alexis Roberts got a hold of me. She's so knowledgeable about hair & really listens to what you want. She took her time in discussing what we were going to do, as I'm growing my hair out & she only took off what she needed. She's the best & I'm so happy to have my hair peeps all in one place! Helmet is the best...ever! Pros: Relaxed vibe, knowledgeable, friendly staff... Cons: NONE! more

!!! ---------- ALEXIS --------- !!! 5/1/2009

Followed ALEXIS Roberts from her previous shop. She's been cutting my hair for five years -- can't imagine letting someone else touch it. My salt-n-pepper locks are getting more and more tricky to deal with but she always does a great cut. Because of her great cuts I have time to make 5 minute oatmeal in the mornings before heading out the door. Which is always 10 minute oatmeal when you factor in the water boiling [!] You know what I'm sayin', those ten minutes add up! She's a remarkably talented stylist. And she's crazy cool and sweet. Pros: Hospitable, non-snooty. Cons: Metered parking. more

Great Space with The Awesome Teresa 4/21/2009

I, like many are in a battle with my hair and have been hunting for the right stylist. I got the nerve to approach a girl on the street that had similar hair to mine but it rocked! She, with a huge smile on her face told me that Teresa from Helmet did her hair. She had so many great things to say about Helmet and Teresa that I had to give it a try. HAPPINESS! I got a super foxy cut that I can actually duplicate at home and beautiful highlights. I think what makes Teresa so amazing, besides her knowledge and talent is that she really listens to you and works with you to get the best results for YOU! I love the feel of the space and everyone there is really nice, they make you feel special. You don't have to be a celebrity to get ""The Treatment"" Pros: Everything more

Question? 4/14/2009

I've read so many great things about the colorist/stylists at Helmet and would like to know who best to go to. Maybe someone can give me their opinion as to who I should go see. 1. I have long wavy hair (overly layered, need to grow out) 2. I am tired of switching colorist/stylists due to their inability to pick the right color for me or cutting off way too much of my hair. 3. Need a true expert, not just someone who does color well. more

Teresa is the trifecta! 3/2/2009

Teresa Hill is the most talented and most helpful stylist I've ever worked with. She has changed the course of my hair history and re-invented my look. Flattering cuts + great color (I've been having fun experimenting) = tons of compliments on her 'dos. Not only does the end result shine, but she is also an amazing communicator. More than any stylist I've known, she listens to you and translates that into her art (i.e., your hair). more

When You Want The Best 2/27/2009

Arriving in a modernized former auto garage you are enveloped into an atmosphere of gentility! The owners, Maria, Marqui and Rhett, ensure you will be satisfied from entrance to exit. Simply the best place I have ever gotten my hair cut. High Class yet Down To Earth!!! Pros: Excellant Service, Knowlegeable/Skilled Staff Cons: Can't think of one! more

Enthusiastic, creative, inspired stylist-Sally!! 2/5/2009

My experience at Helmet was superb! I was greeted by a friendly receptionist, offered a beverage of my choice and was given a robe to wear. I felt immediately at home. Sally met me and made me feel welcome and also important. She listened to my description of what I wanted. She had some good suggestions to make my cut perfect. I get many compliments and I would recommend Sally, at Helmet Salon, to anyone. You will enjoy your experience and come away with an easy style to manage and a great new stylist.. Pros: Beverages, friendly, skilled, excellent products, modern ambience more

Rocking Male Haircut!!!! Christopher Pita is amazing 1/26/2009

Wow!!! This place is soooooooo bomb! I just got my hair done at Helmet. I found the reviews on CitySearch and they all seemed so good I decided to try it. THEY WEREN'T LIEING!!!! So relaxing and upscale..... friendly staff, non-intimidating.... I have long hair for a guy, and Chris gave it such an edgy yet mainstream haircut that looks so Hollywood. After seeing the amazing color and highlights, as well as the flawless cut, I thought it was going to cost like 300 dollars..... I payed 175 and it was worth every penny... Ask for Christopher Pita if you want a guy who knows what he is doing with hair, listens to exactly what his customers want, and delivers a fantastic style to match your look.... I""m thrilled and I'll be back more

Style....Service...Excellence... 9/25/2008

Great haircut, great customer service, Mariana is great! 4/30/2008

Living in the Koreatown/Downtown area there are numerous barbershops and beauty salons. I felt like I have been to all of them. The ones I did got to, most did a good job and the rest were okay. However, I stumbled upon Helmet when I was on my way to Pinks for lunch. Being that I did not want to go all the way to the other side of Los Angeles to get a haircut I decided to take a risk (which is something I normally do not do especially when it comes to my hair) and go to Helmet. The place was amazing I thought. I was approached by this stylist Mariana who told me about the place. She was extremely nice. She also asked me about what haircut I wanted. Now I'm really particular about my hair considering all the other places I have gone to. My receding hairline has been increasing so I felt my haircut had to be just done right. Mariana said I have just the look for you. After I have seen the results I was quite impressed. The job has definitely outshown the ones I have gotten in the previous shops. Mariana is such a professional. I said I was definitely coming back in the next week. Now Pinks is not the only thing I can look forward to on the westside. Pros: great customer service, great stylists more

Have (or want?) straight hair? Ask for MARIANA! 4/30/2008

I have super-straight hair that won't curl or wave to save my life, and no one seems to be able to cut it in a flattering fashion. Since I run my own event coordinating business, it's important to look professional yet ""hip"" at the same time, and everywhere I have gone just can't get it right. After hearing about Mariana's skills with her Japanese hair straightening, I figured she would know how to cut super-straight hair right after and made an appointment, I discussed with her how I wanted something short and cute with layers that flipped out (SO hard to do with stick-straight hair!), but didn't have time to mess with blow-drying or 8 different styling products to get it to look right every day (since it always looks great the day I get the cut, but afterwards turns into a disaster!). She listened to what I wanted, talked me through the whole process to make sure I knew what was going on and why, and showed me how to create the style in less than five minutes a day. Sure enough, 2 weeks later, I still look like I just stepped out of the salon! THANK YOU MARIANA for making me look so fashionable! No one would ever guess I was a mom. ;) more

Great hair cut by Sally 4/3/2008

Sally gave me a new hair style. She gave me a cut that works with my fine straight hair. She knows how to cut for the different types of hair. Her ability to determine what will work best for you, is what makes her cuts work. She has the skills to give your hair the cut that will work for you. My experience with Sally's cuts have spoiled me. When I am traveling, I have not found anyone that can do my hair to compare with Sally's cut. I can actually handle my style after Sally has cut it. Before Sally, I could never recreate the style I left the salon with. Sally ia also fun to talk to. I heartly recommend her. Pros: Greay staff and nice salon more

Amazing color - great experience 11/19/2007

I would highly, highly recommend this salon - especially STACY. I have been going to her for about a year. My hair was extremeley damaged from overbleaching, and she has managed to still give me the light hair I want while keeping my hair healthier than it has ever been. I have been to many different colorists, but STACY is by far the best. She knows what is best for your hair, and also knows what will look best on you. She is also a ton of fun - very outgoing and really easy and fun to talk to. She makes the two hours I sit in her chair fly by, and I always look forward to my appointments. She is always on time and never makes me wait, and she always manages to squeeze me in for last minute appointments. Definitely ask for STACY - you will not be disappointed!! more
