Pros: easy to talk to & spot-on delivery

Cons: pricey addiction!

When I am in LA, this where I go to get the type of quality that I am accustomed to, if I am in NYC the I use Salon AKS, but here on the west coast the salon has a wonderful vibe, with good service that can only show the quality of the staff, no putting on of aires. I appreciated the care and concern for my better half that she recieves. If she is happy the I am happy. This establishment keeps me happy, so much so that I took the time to write. I usually dont take the time, but right now I am in europe, after flying from LA, so I would like to say thanks...

I grew my hair out to donate, and when it was long enough, I shopped around for the right stylist for weeks. I chose Alyson because of the many positive reviews and the before/after pictures on her website. I have had many horrible salon experiences before and I was terrified of another one. I spoke to her on the phone before scheduling an appointment and she answered all of my questions professionally, calmly and patiently. She lived up to her reputation and beyond! The cut is amazing and she spends time talking to you and asking what you are looking for in a haircut/style. She cuts exactly what you want! She also uses products without sulfates (and gives a great scalp massage during the shampoo). In summary - she is fantastic - if you are nervous or hesitant, just give her a call and she will answer all of your questions. Enjoy your future fantastic haircut!!

When it comes to hair, Alyson is an artist!!!!! I have never seen anyone cut hair with such attention to detail as Alyson does.

Not only is the cut amazing, but it grows out beautifully too. the cut lasts and lasts.

I have worn my hair long for 20 years, and Alyson is the only person that I'll let come near me with scissors...

This Girl ROCKS!!!!!!!!!! Now go get a haircut !

Alyson has been cutting my hair for about 3 years now and I will never ever go to anyone else again. I have naturally curly hair and had nothing but bad experiences at salons.
I found Alyson online when I searched ""curly haircut los angeles"". Her haircuts are amazing. She is very detail oriented, takes the time to listen to you, and gosh, I just don't know of a better stylist! The first cut she gave me was a graduated bob. I didn't know curly-haired people could get such a cute bob! All the haircuts since then have been amazing. I just love her!
She was so nice on the phone when I first called her, and is always very kind, professional. I recently even called her on advice about getting a Brazilian Blowout hair straightening. She took the time to give me advice on how I should look for a stylist, and even explained to me the technical aspects of the product/process.
I have straight hair now after the Brazilian Blowout, and still don't want anyone else to cut my hair except Alyson. I am so thankful that I met Alyson - Love Love Love!

Well, Im now a reformed, hairdresser lover Ive been to see Alyson this week and I cannot express my gratitude enough for this superb artist.

Im a new arrival to LA and had several trepidations regarding my first trip to a local hairdresser, erroneously assuming Id be subjected to a pretentious and vacuous environment, and leave feeling like Id been robbed of a months grocery money. Pre-Alyson, I had pretty bad hair, and Id been dreading the embarrassment of having to explain the strange, cost-cutting transformations it had been through (drug store hair colour is the devil).

After a long phone conversation with Alyson and then a free, lengthy in-salon consultation (I like to repeat questions, but in slightly different ways), I decided to book with her for the big day. It just felt right and my vision became her vision, but an enhanced and more technical one.

On the day, I turned up in my gym gear, flip flops and a nervous smile on my face and let Alyson work her magic. As alluded to above, my hair was like a treasure trove of colour and, in terms of the cut, had fallen victim to my student budget and a former stylist who didnt speak much english. Were I to hazard a guess, Id speculate that this ex stylist of mine failed school geometry.

After my amazing cut, Alyson carefully laid out a mini-apothecary of natural hair-colours and even ran back for more when she uncovered hidden gems of colour deep within the thickets of hair. Each section received personal attention. In fact, she even got me to come back again so that she could make what was already perfect somehow even better. Her endurance level and patience are phenomenal.

Alysons main concern was to not take the lengths of my hair lighter than shed need to in order to get rid of the blackness and match it to a shade slightly lighter than my naturally-light brown roots (to get that sun-kissed look). Most salons would bleach the life out of hair in this situation and destroy it in the process. Not Alyson.

Alyson reassured me throughout, showing more gentleness and patience that one would normally receive peri-operatively. I didnt feel embarrassed or judged at all!

Time with her has an almost ethereal feel to it; her spirituality, knowledge and dedication to her craft is awe-inspiring. As for the products she uses, you may have noticed, fellow converts, that she takes an armful of beautifully-labelled bottles over to the sink These natural alternatives--along with her hair colours and styling products--are lovingly selected for us, her lucky few.

Alyson, you are a sweetheart and a true artist. For the first time in years, my hair is a feature for me to enjoy; it has life and energy!

My hair and husband thank you, as do I!

Alyson gives a wonderful haircut. She considers your shape face, head shape and texture of hair into consideration for each person. For women, Alyson focuses on giving a cut, which will be pretty and soft, to compliment you. She has been cutting my husbands hair for years, and he will not go to anyone else. Alyson is incredibly nice, and there is not a phoniness or snobbiness to her, which is refreshing. She is very holistic and into using all natural products. Alyson, also, has been cutting hair for years, and experience is an important quality in a hairdresser.

Pros: Can do many different style cuts very well.

Cons: She gets busy, so book an appointment in advance.

I have never written a review but my experience was such that I feel compelled to do so. I did a lot of research and based on all of the positive reviews, decided to try Alyson. We spoke at length prior to my appt. I came in with pictures of how I wanted my hair to be cut and discussed it and the color I wanted at length. Bottom line - the worst short haircut I have ever had. The original appointment ran almost 7 hours, the color was not what I had asked for and the cut was worse. To her credit, Alyson told me she would correct the color and I came in the following day and left happier with the color. I have short hair. You can not hide mistakes or a bad cut when your hairstyle is short. It will take me a good 8 weeks for parts of my hair to get long enough to be reshaped. Bottom line - approximately 10 hours over two days - lovely person, selectively listens and I would never recommend her for short hair cuts

I have been going to Alyson for my cuts for more than five years and she has always done a fabulous job. I should first mention that she is extremely skilled at what she does. I have lived in LA all my life and have tried countless stylists. Alyson is the best that I have encountered. But on top of that, what really makes Alyson special is that she really takes the time to listen to what you want, and will also offer her expertise to ensure that you get the best cut. I'm really picky about my bangs, and Alyson is always very patient with me when I explain exactly what I want. People often tell me that they love my haircut, and I owe it all to Alyson!

Pros: Best cut in town

Cons: None!

I usually do not write reviews, but my experience here influenced me to. Alyson is a great individual and very positive person to be around so i do feel awful about writing a bad review about her, but my rate is based on her work only! When i spoke to her and told her how i wanted my hair cut, she informed me about how she was talented and worked well with all hair types and knew exactly what i wanted. When i went into the salon, she was pointing out all of the defaults in my hair and i actually felt comfortable with her. When she started cutting i started getting nervous.... she was trying to promote her business and had even said that she was trying to get the bad reviews from citysearch off bc she was convinced they were by her enemies.. not cool... that scared me tad.. it had me ? the reviews and wondering if they were reliable.... well alyson had no clue how to style my hair.. i looked better walking in than what i did walking about.. i thought it was supposed to be the other way around.. especially is your paying $95! i felt like a bum when i left the salon, not to mention i looked like one.. my hair was styled sooo funky... she said her cuts were well known to grow out well... wrong!!! a month later my hair was going insane beacuse the layers were soooo messed up.. i could not stand my hair.. and what was worse was that she wiped me out of my haircut funds for the next 3 months... not cool.... i ended up having a friend who is a stylist fix my hair.. he was amazed at how damaged my hair was... and especially how bad the cut was... the layers were soo uneven... i was sooo disapointed with this experience.. and i even gave her the benefit of the doubt that the cut would grow out well when i walked out of the salon with my head down, feeling bad.... sorry to say, but this was by far the worst hair cut that i have ever had...

Pros: nice person

Cons: parking and horrible work

One of my biggest fears in recently making the move from NYC to LA was finding a fabulous, trusted stylist with non-astronomical fees. First in Boston and, later, in New York City, I went to nationally-acclaimed colorists as well as to very skillful stylists who specialized in cutting hair. With fingers crossed, I found Alyson on CitySearch and went to her for both highlights and a cut. Happily, I am now thrilled to join the outpouring of much-deserved accolades for Alyson! My hair has honestly never looked better - shiny, healthy, and with great movement. I absolutely love it and have received innumerable compliments. Not only is Alyson a fabulous stylist (i.e., possessing skillful technique as well as artistry), but she is also an incredibly kind, caring, and life-affirming human being. Although I have never posted anything on CitySearch before, I wanted others to share my good fortune in finding her.

I have been seeing Alyson for 4+ years now. She is the only person I will let cut my curly locks! If you have curly hair, you know how difficult it is to find a cut & style that works with stubborn curls. Alyson is an expert at taming the beast.

At the beginning of every visit we have a detailed conversation about my expectations. She studies my hair, asks what I want done, offers suggestions and confirms the length that I want. Alyson then takes the time to systematically cut my hair until it is perfect - no shortcuts or rushed visits!

I continue to see Alyson because she's professional, a great stylist, uses eco-friendly products and is a sweet and genuine person.

I highly recommend her. Then you will have happy hair like me!

Pros: Professional, understands curly hair, eco-friendly products

Alyson Powell is a phenomenal colorist, she has impeccable attention to detail - resulting in the most natural blonde highlights I've ever had. I've seen Alyson for 9 months now, and at my last appointment in March she used eco-friendly green dye that left my hair as healthy as ever. There was no compromise in the quality of highlights, they're still as natural yet noticeable as ever - but I've also noticed a difference in the health and texture of my hair since. It doesn't feel colored, it feels as healthy as when I've gone without color of any kind for a year and a half. The products smelled great without all the chemicals highlights typically come with... and the end result is fantastic.

Alyson is the best blonde colorist I've had, her using environmentally friendly green products is an added benefit for my scalp and hair - not to mention our earth. I highly recommend her!

I've been Alyson's client for years and intend to stay so. I've regretted any time I've been forced to go elsewhere for a haircut. Not just for women, Alyson delivers highly professional and stylish haircuts for men, too.

Pros: Conscientious, skillful

It had been years since I allowed any curly hair specialist to cut my hair. I had been used to crying after haircuts even from some of the top stylists in town, but this was a completely new wonderful experience. Alyson spent a generous amount of time asking questions about what I wanted and worked in such a detailed way that resulted in my cut Exceeding all my expectations:) I highly recommend her to anyone. I also was grateful to learn about all kinds of interesting ways to help my health as she has a wealth of information to share.

Thanks Alyson!

Pros: Attention to detail and Informative

Alyson is very meticulous and thorough! I have never been to a stylist that took the time and effort that she had with me. She made each strand perfect (my hair color is so natural)- it's unbelievable! I get stopped all the time by women whod ask me who I go to for my highlights. I think I've found several new clients for her already! :) On top of all this, Alyson is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I have ever met. Alyson is so kick back and the conversation was so easy. She's not like most Hollywood stylist who act like they're God's gift to hair! I had a great time with her, so now I not only have a new hairdresser, but a new friend. Thanks, Alyson. Let's have lunch soon, girl! Call me when you're free!

Pros: Best highlights in the universe!

I was hesitant at first because of the multitude of overpriced ""celebrity"" stylists this city has to offer, but my search is now over...Allyson Powell is great. Great cut, beautiful salon, I feel great about it (expecially after a string of expensive blunders) beautiful lady, and after loggin on here, i see why she won those awards the last two years 5 stars!!!!

Alyson provided me with hands down the best hair cut experience of my life and I can't wait to go back! I came across Alyson's services while searching for a curly hair specialist and was impressed by her wonderful reviews. She gave me a thorough consultation and such an amazing cut that I could not believe that my hair could look so amazing. The shape of my hair is now so much more complementary to my face and personal style. My curls look so healthy, bouncy and happy under Alyson's care. She took her time to do her best work , while so many other hair stylists give a bad cut because they don't really know how to cut curly hair and rush through to get to the next patient. The before and after was so impressive that we took some photos for her website. Alyson is such a nice, warm, sincere person to boot. Thank you Alyson and I hope to see you again soon!

Pros: Everything: Alyson, the salon, the entire experience was fabulous

Cons: A little pricy, but worth every penny

Alyson Powell = best haircut! I recently moved here from Chicago, and choosing from L.A.'s many highly rated salons, proved to be quite a challenge. Having had two bad haircuts elsewhere (at known salons), my hair was a mess. After getting acquainted with Alyson over the phone and then again in person, and upon her careful observation, I was confident she knew just what to do. She took her time, stayed focused and never once let herself get distracted. I was very impressed. It has been years since I have had a great ""curly"" cut and since my hair is a work in progress (recovering from the previous bad cuts), I am actually looking forward to our next haircut. In the meantime, I am on board for highlights and another interesting chat with Alyson!

Alyson Powell = best haircut! I recently moved here from Chicago, and choosing from L.A.'s many highly rated salons, proved to be quite a challenge. Having had two bad haircuts elsewhere (at known salons), my hair was a mess. After getting acquainted with Alyson over the phone and then again in person, and upon her careful observation, I was confident she knew just what to do. She took her time, stayed focused and never once let herself get distracted. I was very impressed.

I got my hair highlighted a few weeks ago and it looks fantastic. My hair is very curly, and after finding Alyson on Citysearch, I knew she was the lady to go to. She promised natural looking highlights--the results are beautiful. Its been about three weeks and I get compliments constantly, and I've never been happier with the color.\r

Pros: Friendly Staff, Complimentary Valet & Beverages

I have extremely curly hair and have spent my entire life trying to find someone who could cut it properly! I've lived in big cities like New York and Chicago, and have been to some great stylists, but Alyson is the first person I've found who really took the time to understand what I was looking for, and who cut my hair like a pro. Going to get my haircut is such a treat now, because I know I'm going to walk out of there with a great haircut that will look equally as good on day 1 as it does on day 60! Not to mention the fact that Alyson is lovely and pleasant to be around. Please note: I am NOT a personal friend, I am a client, and I was very sad to see the few negative reviews posted. I don't know what those people could be thinking - Alyson has always been 100% straight-up with me about the price of the haircut, and she is a lot more reasonably priced that others I've tried (and does a much better job). Alyson, PLEASE don't trouble yourself about the few people who can't appreciate a good stylist when they see one - you're a pro as evidenced by all of the good reviews on here. I found Alyson on CitySearch, and I would 100% recommend that anyone (especially those with curly hair) check her out - you won't be disappointed!

Pros: excellent haircut, valet parking, lovely atmosphere

I have never written a review for anyone on line. But Alyson is such a wonderful stylist and professional with so much insight into what helps us look our most beautiful, that I wanted to tell everyone. \r
\r
After my appointment with Alyson, my hair felt thicker and had more body that I could remember since I was a teenager, and that was many, many, many years ago. My experience with Alyson has been that she took the time to ask me what I wanted and what my life style was. She really listened, and then gave her recommendation of what she thought would make my hair look the most beautiful and would work best with my lifestyle. I had ""over processed"" hair because I'd been going to a stylist who kept talking me into using more chemicalson my hair and more often than they should have been used. I actually thought my hair was thinning due to aging, at 50 years of age. Alyson changed all of that with honest advice about how to care for my hair.\r
\r
Alyson only uses and recommends products that she herself would use and she respects the planet and chooses natural products that enhance beauty, not products that cover up what nature gave us. Alyson is the only hair care professional that I have ever been too who does not have her eye on the clock to get you out of the chair so she can move on to her next client like so many I have been to. She took the time to give me the best results ever, and she shared the ""secrets"" of what I needed to do to get the same results at home. Many stylist I have gone to over the years are not confident enough to share those ""secrets"". But Alyson knows this is how she can help us look as good between appointment s with her as we do on the day we walk out of her salon, and that is why word of mouth brings her so many new clients. People ask me, ""Who does your hair?"" and I tell them. She is a dedicated professional and she made my hair look and feel wonderful. \r

Pros: Alyson is so talented I'd go to her even if the salon was not so elegant

Cons: None that I know of, Alyson is the best.

With such long hair, I was understandably concerned about making any change. Alyson put me at ease and listened and did exactly what I asked her to do! Awesome gal, she didn't cut even a centimeter more than I wanted her to. I have never written a review before but hey, this cut made me a believer. Her first client discount is an unexpected surprise, given her expertise. .

Several years ago I was looking for a hairstylist who can create a beautiful layered style for my thin medium length hair. I tried several places in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills but every time it was not exactly what I wanted. Finally I found Alyson Powell through Citysearch and decided to try. I brought her a hairstyle picture out of a magazine and I was truly amazed when she gave me a haircut that looked so much better than the picture!\r
Alyson took her time and asked me questions to find out what I wanted and SHE REALLY LISTENED. From the very first time I liked her personality a lot! She is easy-going, professional, not too chatty, she really understands the client and makes you feel comfortable. Alyson is very pleasant to deal with, very real, and honest. Her prices are very modest considering the length of time she spends on your appts, her extensive work experience and credibility.\r
Also, she has NEVER asked me to write a review or vote for her, I do it because I truly appreciate her and her professionalism. I encourage you to get a haircut with this master hairstylist and judge for yourself.\r
To me, she is the best.

.

Professional, Consistent, and Super-Nice!\r
Time and time again, Alyson proves her talent and skills when she styles my hair -- and I have LOT of it !!\r
She successfully cuts, trims, and styles my long hair allowing the curls to form & flow naturally. My hair grows out evenly, so in between cuts, it looks great, too. The cut she gives me requires no work on my part -- I can even air dry, and it looks professionally groomed. I receive complements on a regular basis. Her fees are reasonable, her attitude is honest and down-to-earth, and her products are natural. And the Parlour is a lovely, calm oasis. I absolutely recommend Alyson!

I saw Alyson a few months ago. I was new to Los Angeles, and came because of the CitySearch reviews.\r
\r
She is FANTASTIC. She's an amazing person, first of all, and I really enjoyed talking to her. It was like hanging out with a good friend.\r
\r
And the haircut? Incredible! I had been going to a high end salon in Philadelphia and was scared to try something new, but Alyson gave me a far superior cut. The highlights are natural and low maintenance, and the cut is just SO healthy looking and just... amazing.\r
\r
I highly recommend Alyson. :)

I went to see Alyson for the first time about 3 months ago and she did such a great job that my sister went to see her a couple weeks later. Both of us have been back to see Alyson and plan to continue to do so. She specializes in curly hair, which is great for me because I have thick, dry curly hair that is very difficult to wash and wear. She paid special attention to what shape would compliment my face and when I left the salon, I was extremely pleased. But it's easy to love the way you look when you leave the salon. The real test is how your hair looks after the first shower when you have to style it yourself. Alyson gave me such a great cut that I can style it myself in about 10 minutes and it looks great curly or straight!\r
My sister has very fine, straight hair and I loved her cut even more than my own and she gets compliments on it all the time. The best part is that THE HAIRCUTS GROW IN INCREDIBLY WELL. I waited way too long between my appts and my hair still looked pretty good and only needed a little trim and reshaping. I spread the word about Alyson all the time, except that I don't want her to get so busy she can't fit my sister and I into her schedule. Honestly, though you'll never get a better haircut than you do from her.""

I have thick, curly hair and have had my share of bad haircuts by stylists who just didn't understand curl. So I was very nervous about finding a new stylist when I moved to southern California. But then I found Alyson and her skill and willingness to talk through my needs put me immediately at ease, and I wound up getting the BEST haircut I have ever had!!! My best friend, who has known me for 25 years, said exactly the same thing when she saw me.......... that this is the BEST cut I have ever had. This week I had a four month follow-up cut, and it's every bit as good as the first. \r
Alyson truly understands curl, curl patterns, texture, and weight, and she cuts with real intelligence, care, focus, and vision. The result is a precise, super stylish, and unique cut that makes the most of my curl and flatters my face really well. I've never loved my hair as much as I do now, and I get tons of compliments on it too. Plus, she's a lovely, professional, person, so the whole experience is really enjoyable. I cannot recommend her enough!!!\r
Curly Haired Folks.............. Your search is over! Call Alyson!!

Ok so a few months ago I wanted to treat myself to a color and cut from a ""celebrity stylist"". Let me just say that if you find someone on City Search be certain to do your homework and google them as well. If there isn't any other info on that person than pick someone else. Putting ""celebrity stylist"" next to your name on an advertisement doesn't mean you are one.\r
\r
Don't get me wrong Alyson is very nice though she looks nothing like the picture on City Search. I agree with the comments that she takes her time. However, she is overpriced for the cut and color you will receive and she will quote you one price over the phone and then when you get there it will suddenly jump 50 dollars or more. She does consult with you a long time but in my case I had super long hair and left with extremely short hair which was not what I'd requested. However it was a nice cut. My beef was that the price tag has you expecting something exceptional and you could get the same service for less than half the price elsewhere. The cut and color cost almost 400 dollars and for that I would have expected something more than good.\r
\r
My biggest problem is that the reviews for on City Search have been submitted by her friends etc., who she has asked to submit on her behalf to promote her business. The fact that the same people can vote over and over again to have someone win a top title on City Search make me now leery of lthe process and the winners.\r

Never before have I ever felt compelled to write an online review for a service I received. But WOW--Alyson is amazing! Alyson spent an extended amount of time discussing both what I wanted and what I needed before even mixing colors or breaking out the scissors. She listened to me so intently, I knew I had made a wise choice coming to her. I have never felt so at ease in a salon or more confident in a stylist. She knew exactly how to cut my super fine hair and gave me the most gorgeous, natural highlights EVER. My hair has style--finally!--and the color is so perfect for me, it doesn't even look like I had it ""done,"" it just looks great! It's exactly what I wanted. Alyson is a master stylist and a true artist. The receptionist and the other stylists were also very friendly and helpful while I was there. The salon is quiet and tranquil, and I parked right in back without a problem. All in all, hands down the BEST hair experience I have ever had. I don't spend money lightly, but having Alyson do my hair was the soundest beauty investment I've made in a long time. Thank you, Alyson!

Having created the award show gift basket and lounge industries, I have many, many great haircuts by the country's top stylists. As my favorite LA stylist had recently moved, I was looking for someone new. I had tried three stylists and didn't like the cuts I had gotten, they weren't fresh or new and they didn't seem to fit my face either. One day, I read an ecstatic review from a friend of a friend about Alyson, which ""spoke"" to me! The review mentioned how much time Alyson took to get this woman's haircut just right, how Alyson had asked her lots of questions and then had spent time to look at the face of the woman to gain perspective on how her hair grows. Okay! Just weeks before going to see Alyson, I was lucky to get 10 minutes (for a $450 cut) with a top stylist who ran his fingers through my hair and told me I had the best hair he'd seen - only 10 minutes for the best hair you've ever seen?! Anyway, he snipped away like I was a mannequin, barking prima donna orders at his assistants the entire time, whereas Alyson cut and hummed and swooned over me like I was a valued human being. I love what she did and I get lots of compliments on it! I have found my new stylist!

I have long, mid back, dark black hair that is very silky in texture. Great hair but it hangs perfectly straight. Why are we never satisfied? Where others might love the straight hair, I wanted a little bit of wave or curl without treatment. Alyson gave me a cut that has multiple lengths that somehow gives my hair the volume and the appearance of waves. I love it and I can exaggerate the look with a curling iron. At other times the care is an easy blowdry. Also, Alyson gave me subtle highlights that shine beautifully. Absolutely the best!

I have long, straight blond hair. Very simple so you wouldn't think it'd be so hard to cut. Every stylist I've ever been to just trims it. They don't give me a ""cut"" or a ""style"", they just lop off the dead ends and send me on my way. Alyson studied my hair and gave the best haircut I've ever had. Haircut always looks best after a week or two of growth. I can't believe Alyson can see into the future like that but whatever she does, she does it darn well. $175 is a lot of money for me. I've only ever paid about $60 for a cut. But I scrimp and save and happily pay that much in order to have this beautiful hair. I will never leave Alyson.

Alyson does the best haircolor weave of any one I heve ever gone to see. Multi layered hues, brilliant color and a multi layered cut that is just perfect. The salon is great with lots of light, great music and valet parking.

She is very nice, but can not cut hair. I had high expecations after reading all these great reviews...and was wildly disappointed. I left with hair with my hair styled like hers, which I did not ask for or want. It was also filled with so much product that it was still wet a half hour later. I had to go home and wash my hair. The cut was incredibly uneven and unattractive. And I had terrible split ends within two weeks - this is not normal. At she certainly isn't cheap. \r

Hey ladies, if you are like me you watch other women. I watch what they wear, their clothes and accessories, what kind of shape they are in and their hair and makeup. Hair in particular. I am always comparing them to myself. Know what, there is no comparison. I have the best color and highlights, hands down, of any of the women I compare to. I have the best weave of highlights and lowlights anywhere. I can say this because I go to the famous Alyson Powell at the Parlor on 3rd street in LA. Simply the best and I am proud of it!
