I got my hair cut at the U Salon yesterday, and I am very happy with the results. The U salon does not take appointments more than 24 hours in advance, so sometimes it can be a bit difficult to go to the same person twice. I ended up going with someone new, and just told the receptionist what I was looking for (someone who could give me a LOT of advice and direction on what to do with my hair) and she recommended one woman who ended up doing a really great job. I'm rather picky with my hair, but she took the time to find out what I wanted and didn't want.
Every time I've been there I have had a great experience, and since this salon is a training salon (for Umberto) it is less expensive. My cut only cost $40, and that is a fabulous deal for Los Angeles!
I recommend this place very highly.
