All reviews seem positive

Great atmosphere, friendly stylists... 6/22/2011

I truly wish I had encountered Helen Simanowitz years ago...she is now my go to stylist for many reasons. 1. She is completely honest with you about what is and isn't working with your cut/style/color etc. 2. She then makes you look...better. I mean, better than you've looked in a really long time. 3. She cuts your hair so that it grows out looking really good. Which I guess is counterintuitive for means that you're not getting it cut every five minutes. But that doesn't matter to Helen. What matters to her is that you feel really good about how you look when you leave, a week after you leave, and three months after you leave. And, finally, 4. Sitting at her station is utterly delightful. She is not only a great conversationalist but a great listener and confidante as well. I'm so glad I discovered Helen. You will be, too. more

TIM ! AMAZING 10/6/2010

Tim colors my 90% Grey hair to a lovely Chestnut Brown, its always so soft and shiny. He cuts exactly the right amount off , it falls perfectly into place, then he blow drys and flat irons.. it last a good few days. I feel so pretty and confidant when I leave Salon Nesou. TIM you are such a good person and very talented Hair Stylist. Thank you xx more

My New Place 5/11/2010

I just moved here and found this place here on citysearch. Very impressed as I come from a very high end salon up north this one ranks up there with some of the best. A very relaxed atmosphere. Jason has been doing hair for 12 years and it shows. Incredibly professional and talented. He matched my color perfectly to what my last colorist had done. He cuts as well which is a surprise to me only because I have only ever gone to two different people for cut and color. He took the time to really find out about me and what I want as well as telling me what I need. The space is so open light-no more crowded cramped salons. Nice to find something with parking as well. Will defiantly be recommending this place to all my friends Pros: parking, the space, Jason, more

best extensions in town 4/19/2010

I've had numerous extensions put in over the years and no one can touch the job Valentino does. My hair looks thicker and longer and so natural that no one can tell I'm wearing extensions. She is also very gifted at matching hair color. She was even able to weave in beautiful blond highlights for me so that I would not have to worry about coloring and bleaching my own hair. The extension hair she uses is of the best quality. To top it all off, Valentino is a pleasure to work with, always ready to accommodate her clients. You won't find anyone better. Pros: Valentino does the best extensions I've ever seen more

Finally found a stylist! 3/23/2010

Got a coupon for 20% off and decided to give them a try. Called up and made an appointment for a men's haircut. Only appt that was available was with Helen. Turned out to be the best haircut I ever had! She took the time to get to know me asking about the hobbies I was into and what kind of hair styles I liked and gave me a haircut to match. Really had a wonderful time and I think I've found my permanent hair stylist now. She's South African so it's also a hoot to hear her speak. Pros: Great stylist, good coffee. Cons: Meters in front a 1hr only. more

Best Hairstylist 3/18/2010

If you're looking for a Hairstylist look no further than Helen, who is now back at Salon Nesou (formerly Kenneth George). I have been going to Helen since I came to live LA in 2001 and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Everyone always comments on how great my color is and that is thanks to Helen. Helen has worked as a hairstylist all over the world and she has so much experience. She really cares about her clients, not just about how they look but also about the care and quality of their hair. If you come to her wanting something that will compromise the integrity of your hair, she won't do it. She'll find you a solution that you'll be happy with without ruining your hair. She's also now doing the brazilian blowout, which I have just done again for the second time with her and she did an incredible job. She researches these new treatments and does most of them on herself before she uses them on her clients so that she's always speaking from first hand experience. It's rare to find someone like this and that's why in 9 years I haven't switched and won't. Even now that I live further away, I travel the extra distance to have Helen do my hair. She's also the only one I trust with my 4 year olds hair . Try her out out, she's a real professional and you will find a hairstylist for life! Pros: A true professional more

Great stylist, great hair 3/8/2010

Helen has moved from Pomp and is now styling at Nesou. Helen's a great stylist and I always enjoy the time I spend in her chair talking, laughing and loving my hair. Nesou is a better location with much better parking and SO much easier to get to on Wilshire than fighting the traffic down to Ocean Ave. Helen is also offering Brazilian Blow Outs and did a great job on my Mom and sister's hair. Pros: Helen, access, location, salon more

She knows her stuff! 1/26/2010

Krystyn at Salon Nesou gave me an excellent haircut. I was referred by a friend and was glad I tried her! She was very skilled and detail oriented. The cut has kept it's shape for quite a while and I am so pleased. Pros: Professional more

See Stephanie Style 1/12/2010

I followed Stephanie over a few years ago because I just cannot find anyone else who can fix my hair the way she can. She always listens to what I want and offers advice or changes if she thinks it's necessary. She is truly outstanding and really cares about her clients, which is more than I ever thought to have in a hair stylist. The price is comparable to every other salon in Santa Monica (which is a bit pricey, but absolutely worth it), but the attitude is much friendlier! Pros: listen to customer and offer advise, great service Cons: a bit expensive more

Stephanie is IT! 12/9/2009

I was referred to Stephanie by a friend about a year ago. Now let me be clear that I am Miss Picky of the century when it comes to my hair. So even though I had a referral, I was still had my subtle reservations about trying a new salon and stylist. Well, let me tell you....all my doubts were basically gone within minutes of being greeted and cared for by Stephanie. Not only is she a PERFECT stylist and colorist, she is a remarkable business woman with the highest standards of professionalism and warmth with her customers. We have the BEST conversations AND my hair looks amazing! Really can't beat that. The salon's prices are extremely fair, and I feel truly feel like they care about the customer. This is seriously the best place ever! Thanks Stephanie! more

KRYSTYN IS AMAZING!!!! 6/19/2009

I have thick, curly, frizzy hair and have gone to several stylist that have screwed up my hair even more. Krystyn was recommended to me by a close friend that adores Krystyn work. After my appointment with Krystyn yesterday, I walked out of the salon feeling absolutely amazing. She was able to cut my hair in a way were it feels so much lighter, softer and easier to manage. The color is perfect, it compliments my skin tone. I had no idea what I wanted and left it up to her. Krystyn you are amazing and I will always go to you from now on. THANK YOU! In addition, the staff is super friendly, the salon is beautiful, hip and relaxing. Pros: Color, cut, style! Cons: No CONS!!!AMAZING! more

Malina is AMAZING!!! 5/4/2009

It is not every day that you can meet someone like my new stylist Malina, that has such a positive impact on the way I look at myself and feel about my life. I went into Salon Nesou last week because I had heard about what a great place it was and that is where I found the most amazing hair stylist name Malina! She did such a wonderful job on my hair and I have never had so many compliments on how good my new hair color looks!!! I had so much fun with Malina and her intoxicating personality, I can't wait until my next appointment!!! all my friends want to switch their hairstylists and start going to see Malina!!! thank you so very very much!!! see you again soon!!! Pros: wonderful ambience, refreshing experience, beautiful salon, Cons: I wish I had come here sooner more

Always satisfied!! 4/23/2009

I've been getting my hair done with Stylist Lala at Nesou for about a year now and have never been dissapointed. From the moment I walk in I am treated like royality and have all my needs delivered. I just recently got my extensions done with her and have never experienced such a great job. She takes her time and her work is what I call perfection. I can't imagine ever letting someone else do my hair. Her work is absolutely amazing. more

Amazing Color! 4/15/2009

Nobody in all of Los Angeles was able to get my color right until I met Stephanie. Besides being great at color very few stylists can wash and style extensions as well as her. She is very easy going and extremely talented. I guarantee you will LOVE your color and style! Pros: Very Accomadating Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Steph Is A Genius 3/19/2009

Oh my god! I followed the advice of so many of these reviews and they were absolutely right about Stephanie! She gave me the best cut I have ever had and suggested I get something called a Brazilian Blower Out. My hair looks and feels amazing. The salon is beautiful and parking is easy. I am referring all my friends to Stephanie, she has a referral program so when you go in please mention that Rachael R. sent you. Pros: She Blew me away! Cons: May be addicting more

Great Place for a Hair Cut 3/17/2009

I?m a huge fan of this salon. Everyone who works there is polite and very helpful. My normal stylist is Stephanie Lewis and I cannot say enough great things about her. She is knowledgeable when it comes to both styling and coloring. She will listen to what you want and then give you suggestions on what style will work best for you. I have gone to three different stylists since moving out here to LA and she is by far the best. Pros: Great Hair Stylists Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Stephanie Really is Awesome For Men's Haircuts Too! 3/14/2009

I agree with the previous post concerning Stephanie. I was looking for someone to cut curly/wavy hair. While it doesn't take as long for a guy's hair to recover from a bad haircut, why go through the suffering if it's not needed? ;-) I'm definitely going back to see Stephanie. Yes, she is that good. Pros: Great Styling Techniques more

Stephanie Is Awesome 3/11/2009

Stephanie is the best!!!! I went to Salon NESOU the first time mid last year. I could not find anyone who could do my hair the way I like it until I went to Stephanie. She made my hair look really good and at a great price! She does everything from a great cut to color. Every since I went to her I get so many compliments on my hair and now I have that extra boost of confidence that I did not have before. If you need to go somewhere and to some one...Go to this Salon and See Stephanie, she will take great care of you! Pros: Stephanie knows what she is doing and is great to talk to. Cons: NONE!!!! more

Awesome hair salon 3/2/2009

I really recommend this place to all of my friends! I've been going for a very long time now and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else! Everyone is so warm and friendly. At the sametime, they are very skilled and practically perfectionists! more

Krystyn is GREAT! 2/21/2009

I use to go to SuperCuts and ever since I got my haircut by Krystyn i know why a haircut shouldn't be 18 dollars. I will always be with her!!!!!!!!! more
