I've been to many high end salons from Beverly Hills to the 'up and coming' Silverlake folks and they've all been nothing, but disappointing. This was the best haircut I've had in years!

I have known the Doves for a long time as two of the most talented (and award winning) hairdressers in the world and couldn?t wait for the day that they opened their own salon so I could become a client - instead of watching them do all

ok, i am a total skeptic. Someone once razored my hair...while it was dry. Needless to say, I was very nervous coming to the Doves, but it turned out i was in great hands. The location is gorgeous and the staff is warm and friendly-there

I went to this new salon on Main St when i heard about it from a friend who said it was amazing. She was so right!
Firstly, the staff are so nice and friendly, which is not what you would expect from such a chic and important looking salon.
Then the hair. OMG, the color is the best I have ever had done (and I have had some of the top people in LA do my color). Chris & Sonia (the owners and The Doves) consult with everyone so you really get a fantastic consultation and expert opinion when any of the team does your hair. Chris R is fab though...
My friends and colleagues have not stopped raving about my hair.
You will be hearing lots about this salon in the future I'm sure. Oh one last thing. Free Parking!!! Yeah!!!
