I tan at Sunset Tan next door to them and I decided to give them a try. I have been wanting to try the Brazilian Blowout for awhile now and one of the girls at the tanning salon had done it and she recommended me to Alina. I really love the result! No frizz and my hair is so much easier to manage. Brand new and really pretty salon. Also Alina and all the staff were really nice. I definitely recommend this place!
Since moving to the west coast I never dreamed it would be difficult finding a stylest that has mastered the art of Blondes. That is until my boss reccomended Alamode Hair salon in California. My friend and I decided to take the long trip (4 hrs) and turned out it was well worth it. The team at the salon took the time and focus to ensure that my friend's extentions were perfect and that my hair color was the most amazing, unique shade of blonde with absolutely no damage! I know nothing about doing hair, but what I do know is that I have never left a salon so satisfied! To thumbs up for Alena and her awesome team at Alamode Hair Salon!
I had a horrible experience at this salon. It was actually my first time dying my hair and i wanted to get it done professionally so that there wouldn't be any mistakes a few days before a major event i had coming up. Alina did my hair and did NOT understand what i wanted, instead she did what she thought was suitable which was about 5 stands of highlights which did not make a difference in my long hair and charged me $98. I came out the salon feeling ripped off and my hair did not look any different then when i walked in. I ended up buying a box of color the next day and dying it myself and got better results. Not professional, way too overpriced, just overall not happy with my visit. save yourself the annoyance the money and the time and go somewhere else.
I live in Glendale, but had been trekking over to trendy Silverlake to get my hair done. I just couldn't find the time to get over there, so I finally went to Alina. What was I waiting for?! The salon is sooo close to my house, has plenty of parking and is in a beautiful upstairs loft with views of the mountains. Alina really took the time to listen to what I wanted in a haircut and then gave me just what I wanted and needed. I've had so many compliments! The salon was very busy that day, so like a good restaurant, I think a busy salon is a sign of a good salon with happy customers. I'll be going back soon : )
Thank Goodness for A la Mode Hair Studio and Maria Blankevoort! I am a new client here and for the past 20 years have been going to the same salon in Glendale, when my stylist decided to move! (How dare she! hehe) I was very sad to see my stylist move because it's so difficult to find someone that you love and trust to do your hair.
I am an older woman, and the older I get the more picky I become about my hair and who styles it, so naturally I was a little hesitant to try someone new after 20 years but Maria was HIGHLY recommended by my old stylist and so I trusted her opinion and went. I was PLEASANTLY surprised. She is a young, sweet girl and listened to my needs and was very patient with me. I know it's hard being the new stylist when a client is so set in their ways, but she surpassed every expectation and I must say I will be a returning client. I couldn't be any happier!
The Salon itself is clean, and they offer snacks and drinks and made me feel very comfortable in my first experience there. Great Salon and talented stylists. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
I have been coming here over a year and my experience has been awesome. The girls are very friendly and professional. Alina has been taking care of my highlights and extentions. People give me so many compliments on my hair. Love, love this salon. I would definately recommend this place & my hair stylist Alina to anyone.
I am absolutely disgusted by Maria Blankevoort actions at this salon.
She didn't listen to what i wanted, she destroyed my hair, and on TOP of that, she offered to fix it, and then flatly changed her mind! so unprofessional! she left me with fried, ugly hair! COMPLETELY HORRIBLE!!
the cut is bad, the color is muddy, dingy, and whacked, and NOT WHAT I WANTED!, and literally makes me cry.... as a friend said, my hair is now: 'a hot mess' what a terrible experience, on every level. I am truly devastated.
You have to ask for Arsineh! I've been going to her for many many years now and followed her everywhere and when she landed here, it's an awesome salon!!! I've never met a such talented hair dresser like Arsineh. You tell her what you want and she'll give you her opinion and you go with it. Love the way she cuts, color makeup and styles my hair. She does amazing job .A La Mode hair studio is located in the right spot. Go get your hair done and go shopping after!!! And to top it off everyone there is so friendly and happy all the time. And to top it off they have a great selection of hair products! .. Love it!!! Love it!!! Love it!!!! Remember ask for Arsineh!!!!!\r
The moment you walk into A'La Mode, you know that you're not in any typical hair salon. The space is goregous. It really matches my aesthetic. I was referred here by a close friend because the place I had been going to closed down. (btw there seem to be a hundred different hair salons in Glendale). \r
My stylist was Maria. I needed the whole deal. I needed to touch up my roots, I need some highlights and a cut. It had been a couple of months since I had my hair done.\r
My hair turned out great. I didn't have one complaint about how it looked. Maria did a fantastic job and she was so nice. I spent a pretty penny at the salon and that was the only drawback that I could find. I'm not really used to paying so much for my hair. I do have to say they did a fantastic job.
Maria did an absolutely AMAZING job on my color and extensions. She is very professional and skilled at what she does, and it definitely shows in her work! The salon was very nice and had a positive, upbeat atmosphere, which made my experience that much more enjoyable! I have never received so many compliments on my hair before! It's extremely hard to come by a stylist that you are constantly happy with the results you get, and Maria always delivers! Could not be more content! Thank you Maria for making me beautiful!
Getting a facial from Lindsey was relaxing, rejuvenating and FUN! Not only does Lindsey give you the ultimate treatment but she also uses products that are all natural and smell delicious. I left feeling so well taken care of of took home with me the oatmeal scrub that she used on me by SIAN. Lindsey is so attentive and thorough with her treatment I highly recommend you see for yourself.
I've been going to see Lindsey Spray (facialist) for years and she never disappoints! I received the custom facial and she tailored her treatments to my specific problem areas. I have combination skin (oily forehead, nose and chin but my cheeks can get dry) and tend to get some clogged pores on my nose. She did a thorough exfoliation and was very gentle when performing extractions. Afterwords she put a nice moisturizer from Siane on my face as well as an SPF since I was leaving when the sun was still up. I do NOT use beauty products that have sodium laurel sufate or parabins - those things are toxic and the products she uses, from Siane, do not contain any of these ingredients. Lindsey's facials are *truly* good for our skin - what a concept!! Love the service I get with Lindsey, I've already made my next appointment (in 4 weeks) and can't wait to see her again! Thanks Lindsey for making my skin look radiant!
Alina's is the best stylist! She is super friendly and does an amazing job on my hair everytime I go in there. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I love going to A' La Mode Hair Studio, they are extremely professional, helpful and talented. Alina is just amazing, she knows just how to make you feel beautiful =). I know I can trust her with my hair and I don't just trust anyone with my hair. Thank you A' La Mode Hair Studio for all your help! I would most definitely recommend her to anyone I know.
Went to A' La Mode after reading all the fantastic reviews on citysearch and im glad i did! As soon as i walked in the door, i was greeted by Alina, the owner/stylist and Baxter, her assitant. Both very very friendly and funny. I showed Alina a picture of the style that I wanted and it came out PERFECT! I really like Alina and Baxter's personality, they were so warm and friendly and i felt like i had been there so many times even though it was my first time!\r
The salon is super clean, inviting and modern. I would recommend this place to everyone because it is not pretentious at all. Just great service, smiles and quality work! At the end, i was very delighted at how my hair looked, the cost (very reasonable) and the fact that Alina was very honest and not pushy! she told me honestly not to get my hair colored (even though it would've made her earn more that day) and did not push me to buy products. (though i wish i did!!!) \r
Will come here again and bring my husband, friends and family!\r
LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! Thanks Alina and Baxter for an amazing first time salon experience!:)---jen
I just moved into town, not knowing where to get a haircut without going to one of those schools where students chop my hair as if they were shaving a sheep. Thanks for facebook I was friend requested by A La Mode Hair Studio, they messaged me needing models for their salon, which was perfect timing since I needed a hair cut. The people there were amazing very welcoming and friendly, great environment very clean and has a sheik look to the place, very modern. The women working there are all beautiful and know what they are doing. besides all that the haircut was perfect! Exactly how I like it worth every minute and penny of it.. The place is terrific.
I just went and had another excellent color and cut at A La Mode. I get many compliments everytime I have my hair done there. The owner Alina, and her staff are always very professional and friendly.\r
I would highly recommend her salon to any of my family and friends.
Pros: Professional, excellent work
I Love Love Love my hair!!!
All thanks to Madai! She Colored, Cut & Styled my hair, & she's amazing at what she does! What I did was show her a pic of the kind of hairstyle I wanted & guess what??? Yes! She did exactly that! I love it so much! Im definitly going back to Madai again! Awesome customer service! When I left, I felt so amazing & I was very pleased! :)
I even hugged her because I was so excited & happy!
She's Awesome! I love it!<333
Pros: Professional, Fun & Great Customer Service!
As I was getting ready to write my review, I couldn't help but notice what other people had said about this salon. It's true that you can't please everyone, but it seems that a great majority are quite pleased with their experience. You might ask why it matters what others have said. Well, my experience has been amazing, and I gladly pass along the info of the salon when people ask me where I get my hair done, but I feel reassured that I'm not an exception so if I refer friends and family, I know that they too will have be pleased with the service.
I get my hair cut and colored on a regular basis. I have a very demanding career and unfortunately am not blessed with hours and hours that I can spend in a salon so I appreciate the fact that my appointment time is respected. I've never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes, and that's been usually because I've arrived a few minutes early.
The new location is clean, sleek, and modern. Unlike some places, the product shelves are spotless!!! The refreshment area has cookies, coffee, and juices so in case you're always on the go alike me, you can have a small snack to avoid passing out.
The staff is professional, polite, and friendly. Unlike some of the well-known salons in the city, the staff actually greets you when you walk through the door. They are attentive and happy to assist you should you need anything.
Now about what really matters: my hair! A bad hair day for me translates to an off day so when it comes to my appearance, my hair is top priority. I change my hair style every couple of years, and because I have fine hair, I'm limited to certain cuts. To date, I've been thrilled with my haircuts. And my current color is so rich and fantastic! I'm a tough critic, but I've been pleased so far. Interestingly, even random strangers have complimented me on my hair cut as well as color!
I'd like to leave you with this: you MUST communicate to your stylist what you like and what you want when it comes to your hair. He/she cannot read your mind. Search the internet and take pictures of the cut that you'd like to have. And remember to have realistic expectations. For those of you who watched ""Friends"", you know that having the ""Rachel"" didn't mean you also looked like Jennifer Aniston!
I wish you a great experience and hope that you're just as jazzed about your hair as I am.
Pros: service, punctuality, professionalism
About a month ago I went to A' La Mode to get a haircut and had a great experience. The staff were all really nice and helpful. I have been to too many up scale salons that have stuck up staff. I actually had fun being there. About a week ago I went back to get a Brazilian Blowout. That was probably the best decision I have made in a really long time. I absolutely love my hair! Straight, soft, smooth, and best of all no frizz! Alina was an absolute joy to work with.
Pros: Gorgeous Salon! Great Parking.
I have to agree with the commenter below me, Rosie is exceptional at what she does. She's been doing my hair for the past year and hopefully will continue doing it for years to come. I'm always struck with ideas for my hair that, to me, seem great -- however, it's seemed like I'd never be able to find a hairstylist who could actually pull off my ""visions"". Then Rosie started doing my hair.
She's accomplished everything for me, and every time she's done with me I'm always getting comments on how great I look -- she dyed my hair a perfect snow white (which is a near impossible feat), with minimal damage and no hair loss; next, she put my hair in braids (takes hours, but you'll have so much fun talking with Rosie I guarantee you won't notice). Everywhere I went people would come up to me telling me how cool my hair was. And after the braids got old, she helped me achieve a gorgeous, classic platinum blonde bob.
Having gone through so many different hairstyles with her, I can definitely vouch for her versatility and talent. Not only do I have a flawless classic cut right now, but she's also proven herself capable of funky, hip, and cool hairstyles. She really makes sure that whatever vision I have will make me look more beautiful (rather than just merely more weird).
Seeing Rosie is always a pleasure; she's always friendly and fun, and best of all are the compliments I get after she's done!
Pros: great at a variety of styles, fun and friendly atmosphere
Wow I needed to ""pop"" for my family reunion. Rosie accepted me as a ""walk in"" and did an amazing job. I thought I was ok with my basic style but thankfully she wasn't afraid to break down what would look better. I felt 10 years younger when I left and my family was amazed. Everyone in the shop is supportive of each other. I wouldn' t think of going any other place. Rosie is beautiful and talented!
Pros: Amazing architecture and performance!
My mother has brought me here for over a year now and i have never been so happy with my hair! Alina is great and the new studio is welcoming.
Pros: everything... extremely professional
Cons: too many beautiful women in one place
I went into A' La Mode for a haircut and style. Maria Did an amazing job my cut was exactly what I asked for. Ive Been going to Maria for a while now and have never been disappointed. The salon has a great look, the staff is all very friendly and professional. I would definately recommend this salon to everyone. You will leave there satisfied, I guarantee!
Pros: nice decor, great parking!
Went to A La Mode salon 1month ago after reading all these reviews. Alina is very nice and business oriented person, however has no talent as a hair stylist. She is probably trained well, however she doesn't have the God's given gift of being hair stylist. I can call her hair dresser at the most.
To keep it short... she gave me a color that I had to recolor myself one week later, because I was getting comments like ""why do you look so tired"". Haircut was so poor ( especially the bang-it was HORRIBLE),that I end up paying $500 to get hair extensions.
I honestly don't believe that all these city search comments are coming from the customers. Once again, the owner is a very smart businesswoman and knows how to make the business work.
Will not go there ever again...for very expensive average job.
Pros: Clean and cozy
Cons: See comment
I went to A' La Mode for the first time this weekend on a recommendation from my friend. Maria B was my stylist and she did such a great job. I hadn't cut my hair for over a year because of the fear of change. She trimmed my hair and recommended I cut my bangs to go for a fun and flattering look... I'm glad I listened to her... I love my new look! She made the time and effort to help me understand how to keep my hair looking healthy and gave me tips and tricks on what kind of products to use to give my hair volume and keep it healthy. I can tell that she really enjoys doing what she does and that gave me the confidence to try something new. I definitely walked out of there feeling great and will be returning there soon!
Pros: Modern Salon, Great Prices, Plenty of parking
Cons: Can't think of any
I have been getting facials for over 10 years now, and let me tell you that the facial that I have received at A La Mode Hair Studio was one of the best facials I've had! The esthetician, Ani, took her time to explain the benefit of each product that she used on my face. Everything that was used on my face was organic. I take care of my face very well and I buy the best products that are out there; however, I never ever had such amazing results as I did with the products at A La Mode Hair Studio. My face is glowing like it never did before. I am slowly getting rid of all the expensive products that I have at my house, and starting to purchase the skin care that A La Mode Hair Studio uses. I am definitely going back for more facials.
Pros: Great parking, Beautiful Salon.
A' La Mode Hair Studio provides high level of expertise in coloring, highlights and cutting at cost s that are substantially less than all those over-priced salons in Beverly Hills and the westside. Top-notched quality at more than half the price.
Pros: Skillful Hair Coloring, Highlights and Cuts
I went into A La Mode with the most damaged hair, and Alina really did an amazing job! I walked out with new healthy hair within an hour. Not only was her technique extremely professional, but she was so efficient and did such a perfect job. If you are looking to get the best hairdo in town A La Mode is the place to go!!
Pros: Best technique!!
Very talented when it comes to hair and makeup!
Love, Love, Love A La Mode. Alina is wonderful, very personable and I always walk out of there feeling beautiful. My best friend even comes from Dallas to get her hair cut at this salon...that says something!!
What I love about going to Alina is that she is always very professional and attentive. You can tell that she loves being a hair stylist and it shows in the quality of her work. She takes the time to listen to exactly what you want. I am so happy to have found such an experienced and professional hair stylist!
Pros: Very professional and attentive
The atmosphere of this place is absolutley amazing the. over all we give it two thumbs up
Pros: The best at what they doo
I have flown cross-country to have my hair cut by Alina. She does such a great job and really seems to know what will look good on a customer. Trust her!
Pros: Friendly service, knows what she's doing
Alina is really nice and easy to talk to. I went to her when my hair was super damaged and over processed and she worked hard to get it pretty again :) Wish I could go more often but $'s tight this year :(
Pros: Saved my super damaged hair!
i had the best experiance !! i love it and defntly go back ! the girls are awsome !
Pros: talented stylist
I like going to A La Mode Hair Studio in Glendale, they offer an exceptional service! The fees are in-line and the intimate atmosphere is very inviting. It's the personal, no rush attention that always assures me that every time I'm there, I am in good hands! They go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable at the salon and assure that youre happy with the final result. I've walked out each and every time feeling 100% satisfied with my hair -- and I'm very particular..
Give them a try if you're looking for something different, are dissatisfied with the service you're currently receiving, or just want to feel like a million bucks. Not only do they do great hair, but they have created a friendly and fun environment where everyone is made to feel special and pampered. They have a fine selection of hair products as well. I've never gone wrong with any of their recommendations.
I've been going by Alina for a few years and I still enjoy every visit. She is very sweet and friendly. She has been highlighting m hair as well as ptting on hair extentions, and my hair looks amazing. The salon is a very lively and has a great atmosphere. If you want to look great go to A La Mode.
Alina has some serious skills!
It has a little of everything that you would want or need done!!
Pros: Love the hair streaking
I heard about Alina through other friends that she does Brazilian blow out. I had heard about the blowo ut but wasn't sure what it really was. So, I made an appointment with her to find out more about the blow out. She was very informative of the product and explained the steps very professionally. After 20 minutes of her answering my 20 questions I went ahead and made an appointment to go back for my blow out. When I arrived at the salon Alina and her staff, very professionally, greeted me and asked me if I want something to drink, you don't get this kind of service in a lot of salons now days. I waited for about 5 minutes and Alina had her assistant wash my hair, and she started on doing my blow out. Within 90 minutes my hair was so straight and so soft I couldn't stop touching it. It truly was EVERYTHING she had said it would be and much more. What I really like about Alina was that she followed up with me couple of days later to see how I like my blow out, and if I have any questions. Again, you don't get that kind of service a lot now days. That to me showed that Alina cares about her clients. I would 100% recommend her for ANYTHING because she knows what she is doing, especially on the Brazilian Blow Out!!! \r
Thanks Alina for making my hair so straight, soft and shinny! \r
See you in two months!\r
Pros: Best service ever
Cons: No Cons what so ever
I went to A La Mode when I was trying to find a stylist for my wedding. I went in for a test run and loved the results. My hair turned out phenomenal on the day of. My hair was done by Alina and she also did my coloring. She did the most amazing shade of red. If you've done red hair before, you know how hard it is to get a true color. I loved it so much that I recommended her to my friends in the wedding party. The way she mixes color is amazing. I have yet to find a better colorist (and I have been to a lot of places). My only disappointment is that I don't live in the area anymore and can't get my hair done by her. She also gave me great advice on hair extensions. She could have plugged her own services but instead gave me honest advice re clip-ons b/c I didn't want to actually get extensions. As a bonus, she was great and easy to talk to. If you are trying to find a new stylist, this is definitely the place to go.
Pros: Simply great work
My first time here and I'm very satisfied.
Pros: Professional work
Alina is truly an expert. It is very difficult to please my mom. She is a great colorist. Did a really nice job with my extensions and most important of all, my mother loved it.
Alina is incredibly attentive to your wishes and needs. You have but to walk into her salon and immediately you are welcomed and offered refreshments. She listens to your hair desires and delivers exactly what you had imagined. Her salon is elegant and comfortable.
Alina's hair and personal style is always impeccable, (always choose a stylist who's own hair is fabulous!!!!)
You are in great hands if you book your appt at A La Mode Hair Studio!
Pros: A hairstylist with mad flavor, and wicked talent!
Alina has a great taste and imagination. Her style is very classy and fissionable. Her personality is the icing on the cake!
She did my hair and make up for my wedding, which were incredibly beautiful!
She has a beautiful salon and a great staff!
I highly recommend A la Mode!
Alina has been cutting my hair for about a year now and I'm very happy with her services! She is very professional but most of all, very friendly. She knows exactly what I want every time I go in. Her salon has a warm and inviting environment...I love going in there. Her assistant Rosie is so sweet and is constantly offering me coffee, fruit, and water and alwyas making sure I'm very comfortable. Alina is good at what she does and is constantly taking courses to keep up with the latest trends. She is worth every penny and I highly recommend her to anyone. She also did my wedding hair and makeup and she treats her brides with top quality service!!! My matron-of-honor and I were both very impressed with her services! Thank you Alina for making my hair appointments very enjoyable!
I went to 4 or 5 hairstylists in the Glendale area when I moved there over 2 years ago. By FAR, Alina was the best! A La Mode is very inviting with a great atmosphere, the employees are all very friendly, Alina is an amazing sylist with a great aesthetic, and I've always gotten compliments after getting my hair cut there! My sister loves going there too. Even after moving to a new city this past month, she still HAD to have her hair done only at A La Mode :D
Pros: friendly, fun, professional
