Excellent value and environment! I've had my cut/color and my daughter's A-line done by two exceptional ladies - DeAnna and Serena. They work in concert and the owner ensures there is not a competitive environment - so rare with salons. The RSF location is light, bright and welcoming.
Not so relaxing salon experience!. I had some issues booking an appointment here. First I called and no one returned my phone call. I tried one more time and spoke to a women that I could barely understand. She assured me I must see Michel because he is the best in san diego, "He is the master Stylist" she said. I went in for my apt for a color and cut and he was 30 minutes late with no apology or previous notification that he was running late. His assistant seated me and asked me what color I wanted, I was a little taken aback because I thought I had an appointment with michel. I was telling her my hair issue when halfway through michel walked over and told her to go shampoo someone. He spoke to me very briefly and acted as if he were in a hurry. He came off very arrogant and I was never fully able to finish explaining my concerns. A different assistant applied my color, and again I felt like she was in a rush.Then, another assistant (3 different people) washed me and asked if I would like to pay 40.00 to have my hair blown dry! I told her I had scheduled a haircut with Michel and she said he was running behind and could not do my haircut today, but she would blow dry my hair for 40 dollars if I wanted to see the color. Honestly, It was a really weird salon experience. I had an appointment with michel and 3 people different people ended up doing me and not one of them was michel! I would have understood if they had notified me in advance that they were running behind but I felt like I was thrown in to a hectic situation without the option to refuse.
First timer! Just needed a trim and got a wonderful cut. Diana is so sweet, and really asks what you want before she even starts. Many places I've been to don't really think about what the customer wants. She also made suggestions on new things I could think about for the future. I'll be going back for my next cut!
I recently moved to San Diego and, after reading the glowing reviews, made an appointment with Michel. My previous cut was pretty choppy and he did a good job of fixing it so that it could begin to grow it out into the style I wanted. Michel really listened to me and understood the style I was trying to achieve.
Advanced Hair Studio India has world class hair products that work efficiently to deliver wonderful results. I got back my beautiful long tresses using the enhanced laser treatment. I used to get depressed looking at my falling hair. It disturbed me a lot and started affecting both my private and personal life. However, Advanced Hair Studio India relieved me of all tensions and now I can flaunt my shining hair with confidence!
I feel a sense of deep gratitude towards Advanced Hair Studio India for making my life so better. As I was losing my hair, my personal as well as professional life was getting affected. My temperament, level of frustration and perception was in a bad state. Through a common friend, I got to know about Advanced Hair Studio Delhi. After getting convinced with the Advanced Hair Studio reviews, I visited the place. I spoke to the staff for a couple of minutes and decided to get myself on with the laser therapy. My hair fall stopped, scalp became healthier and the overall texture improved. I can now say that I have a decent quality of hair. Thanks Advanced Hair Studio India
It is my pleasure to express my thankfulness to Advanced Hair Studio India. This year, I went through a rough phase when my hair started falling out. It became extremely difficult to manage and style my hair. Nothing seemed to work. It was then that a friend of mine who was working with Advanced Hair Studio Delhi took me there. I went through the Advanced Hair Studio Reviews and was very much convinced. The staff helped me understand the real problem. I knew it was the place for me. Within a few days, my hair started growing back and all hair related problems were getting sorted. Today, I recommend Advanced Hair Studio India to everybody.
I got my hair done by Elana Haas a couple weeks ago and let me tell you I am more than happy. I am a single mother who has gone way too long without touching up my highlights and my hair was a mess! So much so that I even wore a hat to my appointment with Elana! She was so nice and did a great job, while making sure she gave me the best look with the least amount of maintenance! Thats exactly what a mom like me needs! I'll be sure to keep my highlights up now that she made it so low maintenance! If you're looking for a upbeat stylist who will give you the best look for your dollar, I'd recommend Elana!
When I found Sumika at Michel Benaroch Hair studio I was in a major hair disaster. I was blond but not a pretty blond someone at a previous salon had turned my hair paper white with dark ashy low lights. It was awful. Not to mention my hair was so damaged and breaking at the tips. Sumika worked me through what was the worst hair experience and between the color that she did ( she described it as a vegetable base glaze that adds shine) kerastase conditioning treatments, and routine trims she has really brought my hair back to life! I have been going to Michel hair studio for almost 2 years and absolutely love it! They use the best quality products there and Sumika is highly educated and is truly an artist!
Michel Benaroch Hair Studios are the very best in San Diego. Their employees are highly qualified and very professional. Michel is one of the best stylists in the country and he is consistently excellent.
It is always a pleasurable experience!!!
I am amending the review - as Michel did personally call me to see if he could fix my hair. Appreciate the personal touch.
My last visit to the salon was in June. I'm still paying for the horrible color job. Sumika absolutely fried my hair with the highlight process and it is still breaking off. The cut wasn't much better. It looked like she just took a big chunk out of the back of it. She is a really sweet girl - but it is going to take a year for my hair to even begin to be healthy. What a disaster.
I drive about 30 min to get to Michel Benaroch Hair Stuido, I truly love it. They have a great selection of quality hair products. Love the feel of the Salon great people, but I love my stylist Anita and would drive a hour for her!! \r
I've lived in New York and LA for many years and have had various stylist . I'm a very meticulous about my hair color even though is just dark brown\r
Anita is fabulous with color and gets it right every time!! She's also amazing with extention, did I mention FAST!!! I've been cursed with frizzy, curly hair but recently Anita changed all that, she introduced me to Brazilizan Blowout ....I swear for anyone that wants Amazing, Glossy Straight hair everyday, ,then you have to try Brazilizn Blowout! I think I'll never go to curly again. \r
To me the grass is greener on the other side!!! Thanks to ANITA :)
Pros: ANITA, Color, Brazilian Blowout, Extentions
This is a Salon with the best artists in hair color, cuts, extentions and products. One inparticular is, Anita. A pro with extentions and color matching. Mr. Benaroch knew what he was doing bringing this incredibly talented stylist to his salon. This is a five star rating and would recommend this salon to those who love perfection.
Pros: Extentions, Color and Class
I've been visiting Michel Benaroch Hair Studio since it opened at the Santa Luz location and I will never go elsewhere! Holly is the best :)! Very friendly team of hair professionals and the ambiance of the salon is just fantastic!
Ian Skolnik of Michel Benaroch Hair Studio has been cutting and coloring my hair for the past two years. I will never go to another hair stylist because Ian is an experienced and talented individual; and he is a joy to be around. By nature, I am a fussy person. Ian never fails to amaze me. I highly recommend Ian to anyone who wants to improve his or her hair. Whether it is through either cut or color, I guarantee that Ian will do a superb job.
Pros: Best Cut and Color In Town
I have been a client of MIchel for 13 years. I have seen him treat everyone with the same equal amount of respect and dedication. I was a hair model in my 20's and am extremely particular. After moving to San Diego, it took me 5 years to find a decent stylist. When I found Michel, I knew I would never trust my hair to anyone else. He and his entire staff are simply - THE BEST and I love them all!! xoxoxo
Pros: too many to name
I just fell in love with this salon. It's very cute and the whole staff does an amazing job with taking care of it's customers. I left with a completely new look with my hair. I also found out that they do hair and make up for special events. I will be getting married this December and I will have them do my hair and make up as well as my whole family. Very excited!
Pros: Excellent customer service and the service itself
Michel Benaroch has done hair for celebrities in Beverly Hills before opening his own place in San Diego. I heard that women would travel from SD to LA just to have their hair done by him!!!! His staff is just as incredible as Michel. Try a treatment with their Kerastase products- you won't regret it!
Pros: clean comfortablw
Where do I begin? First, this is not about me, but my wife. She used to get her hair done in Beverly Hills by the stylists that did ""the stars"". And, it showed - she could have beautiful blonde hair that looked just like theirs. Sadly, we have had so-so results looking for that same type of artistry here in San Diego. My wife, a natural brunette, has gone blonde to brunette to blonde to brunette. She wanted to go back to blonde and met with a ""top rated"" stylist about going blonde again. This stylist said, ""well, it will be a pain in the ass, but we can do it if you want"". Oh, and by the way, it would take about a year. Needless to say, my wife did not proceed any further.
When my wife found Michel Benaroch Hair Studio in the Santa Luz area of San Diego, she had a consultation and both Michel and Sumika were extremely professional and knowledgeable. Sumika was the stylist that did my wife's hair and it was special from the beginning - no attitude and no problem. It has been 3 weeks since my wife's first visit and her hair looks better than it has in years - at least since her days in a Beverly Hills salon. And, my wife loves going to the salon - it is decorated beautifully and the staff are extremely customer oriented - an overall A+ experience. To see the look on my wife's face when she returns from Michel Beraroch Hair Studio is well worth the price - for not only does her hair look better than ever, but she has had an experience that has blessed her soul. I could not rate them higher for how they have blessed my wife.
Pros: Color, cut, environment, attitude
Impressive attention to detail, amazing group of professionals who will leave your hair looking just perfect. Try out their Brazilian Straightening, great length extensions, & Rene Furterer products, you will be more than satisfied!
Pros: Best hairstyling

Pros: Best Hair Care in San Diego
Cons: None, Love everything
I recently went to see Ian Skolnik because I needed something new. I had been seeing the same stylist for the past several years, and she refused to ever to anything different to my hair! I was recommended to Ian by a friend, and am sooooooo happy with the results. I explained to him why I was dissatisfied with my current style, and together we create a style concept that I LOVE!!!! Not only is Ian a hip 30-something himself, but he regularly attends trainings to keep his skills and artistic eye up to date. I am so happy to have found someone that is willing to ""see me in a new light"".
I've been getting my hair cut by Ian ever since he started at Michel's Hair Studio and he has always provided me with an exceptional look that is both edgy and classy at the same time, I often come in with abstract suggestions of what I would like to try next with my hairdo and he always creates a perfect execution of what my elusive yammering's ask for. Right now I am rocking what I call the ""Metroxican"" which he stylistically sheared out of my mass of hair. It's a Metropolitan cut with a Latin vibe to it that bends the rough & tough masculine with a soft ""I won't bite"" femininity, and I must say the ladies love it! Thanks Ian!
Pros: High End Haircutting w/ Great Vibe
Cons: bound by Space and Time
I have been looking for a new stylist in the san diego area forever and I finally found her!! Annie reilly gave me the best cut and color ever!! I have been looking for someone who knows how to layer long hair forever!!! Yeah!! I finally feel sassy again!!!
Pros: best ever!!
Cons: absolutely none!!!
Michel is an expert artist. He has cut and colored my thick, wavy hair at long, medium and now short lengths and it always looks amazing (not an easy task with my hair texture). Color is unbelievable and very natural looking. Everyone at the salon is very friendly and hospitable. I used to drive to Beverly Hills from North County to get my hair done after several attempts to find a stylist in town , then I found Michel. Definitely the best salon in town!
Pros: Best cut and color in town
Cons: What are the drawbacks?
I love getting my haircuts at michel hair studio!! Everyone there is so nice! The hair cuts are the best!!
Pros: Best Hair Cuts
I have been getting my haircut and colored by Annie Reilly for the past four years and have always been so happy with my hair. I always get compliments from my workmates in the entertainment industry. If anyone is looking for a FANTASTIC overall stylist she is definitely the one. I totally recommend her!!
Pros: I look Fabulous!
Cons: Absolutely none
I have been seeing Annie Reilly for the past 8 years and have followed her from several salons to her current. She has consistently given me the best haircuts and the thing I love about her the most is her ability to listen to what I want and follow through. Her cuts are always clean and precise andgrow out perfectly. Her attitude is always positive and and her disposition always cheerfuland fun, not to mention her professional attitude. The staff at the Michel Benaroch salon is the best! They are always polite and friendly> The moment I step into the salon I am always greeted by a friendly face and asked how I can be helped and the staffs professionalism and politeness is consistent until i walk out the door. Always a more than pleasnant experience!!
Michel Benaroch has been coloring and cutting my hair for nearly 10 years. I have lived all over the country and been to many colorists and stylists---there is no one better than Michel. Even when I lived in areas such as Seattle, I never found anyone who did such an amazing job with my color and cut. I would often ""make an excuse"" to come to San Diego just so that Michel could color and cut my hair (or fix what some ""high priced/well-intentioned "" stylist had done to my hair in Seattle). Michel's studio is amazing, his quality of service (from the reception desk to his assistants) are truly remarkable. His other salon Bella (in La Jolla) is fabulous as well. As we know, it is hard to find that perfect stylist--and once you do, then you want to stick with them! Michel has always listened to my needs, took my unhealthy, flat colored hair and brought it to life while consistently cutting it to perfection. My husband now goes to Michel for his haircuts as well. I cannot say enough good things about Michel and his studio. You must try his studio. Additionally, Anita is amazing for extensions! I have been to several ""experts"" in San Diego and Orange County, and she is truly the very best at this craft. If you are considering extensions for any purpose (length, body or both), be sure to consult first with Anita (a truly wonderful person as well). You will not be disappointed. Again, the Benaroch and Bella Studios (and in my case Michel and Anita) are simply the very best.
Pros: Best color, cut, ambience, service, consistency
Annie Riley of the Michel Benaroch Hair Studio RUINED MY HAIR. Instead of cutting it the way I asked, she cut my hair into what looks like a growing out mullet. HIDEOUS! When I told her I was not happy, she gave me a nasty attitude. When I told Michel Benaroch, the salon owner, that I was very unhappy with my hideous new haircut from Annie Riley, he said he could not do anything because she is a booth renter and not an employee. He then tried to sell me hair products to mask the destruction. What?!?!?! DO NOT LET ANNIE RILEY CUT YOUR HAIR!!! or you will be very sorry
Pros: Example: best croissants in town
Cons: they RUINED MY HAIR
I went here for my first time the other day and it is a great place! Anita is an amazing stylist, beautiful young lady, and genuinely nice person! I would highly recommend her to any man/woman who is looking for a great cut/styling from a great/friendly person. The staff there is all very friendly and the salon is super clean and has a nice layout. I will definitely be back.
Pros: Great staff, Skilled stylists, Plenty of parking
I had my first visit to Michel Benaroch Hair Studio recently and I absolutly loved it! I went to see Sumika, a fabulous stylist there for my highlights and haircut. To be honest I was kind of nervous because I found them on city search but when I got there they made me feel so comfortable. First of all the place is so elegant and when I sat down the offered me coffee, tea, soda, what ever I wanted. The staff was so friendly and I felt like they really cared. Sumika was awesome, she was really thoural during our consultation and really listened to what I wanted and also gave feed back on what she thought would fit me! She did very detailed work and when she was finished It looked absolutly amazing. She did my highlights perfect! I like natural looking highlights and I think she did some low lights in there to to make a nice blend! Also I have really curly hair and she blew it out so straight for me, I have never seen my hair so silky! All in all it was a great experience and would recommend that you go see Sumika, not only a great hairstylist but such a sweet girl as well!! I cant wait till my next appointment!
The experience of being a client with Michel for the past 10 years has been filled with gratitude and joy. He is the best - and such a caring and talented person. The salon is so elegant yet has such a warm family feeling. My hair has never been so cooperative and I receive compliments almost weekly about the cut and great color. It is been a pleasure getting to know Annie, his lovely wife, who is frequently in the salon.
I have been a client of Michel for 9 years. I have followed him from Beverly Hills to LaJolla to Rancho Santa Fe, you name. I would travel to the moon if I had to. His salon in Del Mar has an amazing view of the ocean. His color skills are like no other. My haircuts are so good they can last and be styled be my for upwards of 8 weeks! Michel Benaroch is a lovely person with a beautiful soul.
I was blessed the first day Michel did my hair and still feel the same almost 10yrs later. The amazing Michel has the ablility to change your hairstyle with the changes in your life and does it each and every time to perfection. I have recommended him to many friends who thank me ,profusely ,for the introduction.\r
Michel is an artist who stands above his fellow sylists!!!
Pros: BEST HAIRCUT, BEST COLOR
I was referred to Michel Hair Studio by a friend who has been highly satisfied and I LOVE it...I went there with horrible hair that had been over processed and damaged and just by my first appointment with Michel and his lovely staff my hair felt so much better! They did an amazing color, conditioning treatment and haircut! I will recommend this salon to everyone! Thank you Michel Hair Studio!
