I was desperate for a haircut, and just visiting in town. I walked in on a Saturday afternoon and Kyle kindly offered to cut my hair without an appointment. Everyone was genuine, laid back, and most importantly my hair has NEVER looked

I have been going to this salon for just a little while. My first cut and highlite was with Christi who blew me away with her cutting and coloring style.Her haircut lasted so long by the time i went to rebook i was coldly told " that she is no longer with us" So since they would not tell me her new location (btw she is at oceana in santa monica and there is free parking) they put me with a less experienced stylist. I dont like writing bad reviews but this was the worst hair experience of my life. Absurdly expensive for the quality i recieved. I am not happy. I had a baliage done by kyle and it looked awful and striped. Leaving me with bleed marks i found out from my fiance a few days later, the cut was not anything to write about also. I asked for a frame facing haircut and he just mumbled and did whatever he wanted. He was more interested in playing with his musical instruments ( completely unprofessional) than my hair. I will never go back in there ever.

Haley was great! She listened to my concerns with my cut and color. She had great suggestions and was very honest about what I could expect. I left with an fantastic haircut and a great color. It will take a couple of times to get the color perfect because Haley wants to make sure that my hair stays healthy. The salon was clean and has a cool rock'n roll style. Haley did magic with my hair!!

Christi Thomas has been my stylist for almost 2 years, and while I would follow here anywhere, I was totally excited when she started working at the Kyle Mathis Salon. Christi fits right into the chill, Rock N Roll atmosphere, but don't let the tats and wall hung guitars intimidate you....she takes her art very seriously. Christi is an expert on the A-line, geometrical bobs. I have never been able to find anyone who is as good at putting this twist on the classic bob, making it a style statement. In the last 2 years since I have had this bob, I have women and men stopping me in the street asking me who does my hair. The best thing about Christi is that she listens to what you want, sweetly gives you her opinion and then gives you the cut of your dreams. Don't waste time and money on anyone else!

Pros: Amazing Cut, Fabulous Service, Awesome Atmosphere

Cons: Parking in Santa Monica Always Hard

What's unique about this place is that it's a rock-n-roll studio-style spot, yet they serve organic teas and play magic, soothing music. Unbelievable. Christi @ Kyle Mathis is my favorite place to get my hair done. AND I've got a lot of hair, and it's important in my line of work to have a business professional hair-style and Christi does it better than anyone. But, don't be fooled, she does all kinds of hair - everything. Don't let her tattoos scare you - she's the real deal: a true professional. She works with her clients, and takes her time to make your hair look the way you want, no matter what style you're going for. She even let's you take your hair for a test drive, and if you change your mind and want to change it - no problem. Check out Christi Thomas @ Kyle Mathis Hairdressing in Santa Monica, she's worth it.

Pros: Cristi Thomas is the finest hairdresser - ever.

Cons: I wish more hairy people knew about Christi's skills

I never usally rate a place I go to, but I really had to write about this hair salon, as I know how difficult it is to find a truly good one!

I needed to do my roots and found Kyle Mathis hairdressing online. I thought it looked like a cool place, but I honestly didn't have too high expectations, as I always end up getting disappointed when I go to the hairdresser. It is the first time I can say that a place looks better in real than in the pictures and the service there exceeded ALL my expectations.

A stylist named Christiano did my hair and what a job! I have never had highlights done as nicely as he did them and my hair cut was absolutely mind blowing! If I could give him more than 5 stars I really would.... THANK YOU... I will keep coming back and will send all my friends. I already went back for a blowdry and sent my husband, who got a very stylish haircut. Christiano is obviously very experienced and knows how to do ANYTHING with hair.

I recommend going to this salon and to book and appointment with Christiano.

I was in Santa Monica for the first time in Jan. 09 to attend the Critic's Choice Awards. I found Kyle Mathis Hairdressing by searching online for a cool salon in SM. I booked a shampoo and blowdry. I arrived to find a hip, intimate salon. I was introduced to Salem S., the stylist who was to do my hair for the awards show. Salem consulted with me about how I wanted to wear my short hair for the evening. She then washed my hair. After she dried my hair and began to flat iron it...she noticed there were pieces that were not blending well on the sides. She asked about my previous haircut and I asked if there was anything she could do about the problem pieces. She asked if she could cut into the side a bit, I said sure. Salem uses a razor like an artist uses a brush. She then asked if she could re-wet my whole head. She did and proceeded to give me a perfect haircut! She is a genius with a razor! Salem carved and twisted and chiseled until I looked Red Carpet ready! I have never had a better haircut, ever! I was amazed at her abitlity to transform my look in minutes! AND....she only charged me for a shampoo and blowdry!! She mentioned while cutting that she would not charge me for the haircut, but that she wanted me to look great for the show. She was simply, the best. I live outside of Philadelphia. I have been stopped repeatedly since I returned from California by people saying my hair looks fantastic! I only wish I lived closer! Anyone who lives in or near Santa Monica or is visiting, should rush to Kyle Mathis Hairdressing!! Thank you Salem for being a lifesaver!! I will be back.

This week I needed a hair cut and didn't know where to go as I only have had bad experiences with hair salons in LA since I moved here. I found this salon online and decided to give it a chance. I did my hair with a guy named Christiano and how he did my hair was unbelievable. I have never had my hair done like this and I already scheduled for color next week. I finally found my salon and I truly recommend everyone to go there. All the hair dressers are very friendly there and overall it was just the best experience!

Pros: Friendly, great atmosphere, great music, great work

I first read about Kyle Mathis Salon back in February and saved it in "My Favorites." I have been VERY skeptical to get a haircut in LA after a few bad ones. I would wait for my trips back to NYC (I am a transplant). However, my hair had gotten so long and just wanted to chop it off. I brought a picture of a haircut I wanted last week to Kyle's salon. Kyle and I had a consultation, spoke about exactly what I was looking for - and he did it EXACT to the picture. The atmosphere was down to earth and comfortable, and I got the best head massage! The whole crew there is so genuine and nice, on top of being amazingly talented. I have gotten stopped everywhere: my office, all floors of my building, restaurants, my nail salon, everywhere. I asked Kyle if he had cards that I could give out to people, and I have already given out about 10. He is amazing and I will be going to him for color soon. Definitely try this place out!

Pros: Ambience, Personalities!, Talent, Open 7 days a week!

For me, going to a great stylist is like going on a perfect date. Similarly, trying new stylists can be as painful as a string of very VERY bad dates. So when a trusted friend (with very good taste) recommended Kyle, I knew that I was in for a very good experience. The trip alone makes for a nice Saturday or Sunday. I got there a little early and purposefully parked in the garage at 4th and Broadway so that I could walk the length of the Promenade and enjoy some window shopping before getting in the chair. After getting my fill of street performers and pretty fall skirts, I arrived at the salon and was seated with no wait time. My appointment started with meeting Kyle, telling him what I wanted and then listening to him walk me through how he would use his techniques to make it happen. Next came meticulously hand-painted highlights, good conversation, an amazing shampoo from Curtis, and a delicious glass of wine. I never once found someone trying to rush the process or shove magazines in my face. At one point I felt more like I was at party than at the salon- and that's a good thing! The entire experience was stress-free, and the result was fabulous hair. Great color, great cut. Thanks Kyle!

Pros: Ambiance, location, service (parking is actually easy, just use a garage)

Cons: Lighting could be a bit brighter

I found Kyle through Citysearch (thank you to all the other reviewers) and was thrilled because his salon is so close to my house. The first time I went in, he and I had a conversation in which he asked me what I was looking for. I loved that he didn't just jump into the haircut, especially because I was looking for something different, and that he truly wanted me to be happy. That first haircut and blowdry ranks as one of the best I've ever had. My hair looked so amazing that several people literally stopped me that night to ask me where I get my hair done. Since then, I've been back for highlights and another haircut. I have been extremely happy with every experience - from checking in, to having my hair shampooed (Curtis is fantastic!!) to cut and style. I highly highly recommend Kyle and his salon.

Kyle is great! Knowledgeable, listens to what you want, and most importantly very talented at cuts and color. Highly recommended for any and all of your hair needs. The salon is decorated very cool, extremely clean, and everyone there is so nice!!!

I usually wait until my 3rd visit to an establishment to write a review (past experiences, past mistakes), however, I am inclined to write nothing but positive news about Kyle Mathis. It is hard to find a stylist who can do everything, but with Kyle I have experienced perfect cut and perfect colour, every time. His assistant Curtis will give you HANDS DOWN the best head massage you have ever had (which I believe is essential as part of the service). The salon itself is spacious, hip and very clean. The staff are courteous and helpful. There is zero sales pressure and I leave feeling absolutely fabulous. After 10 years of searching in Los Angeles for an amazing stylist, I have found my man!!!! Thanks Kyle!!!

Pros: Everything. Including night time and Sunday appointments!

Cons: Once you know where to park, you are golden!!!

Love the Salon's location, a little hard to park but worth it. Salem has been doing my hair for a while now and I wanted to write a review of praise. My hair looks the best ever, the cut and color are amazing. I drive 2 1/2 hours to have my hair done by Salem and it is well worth the drive.

I called this salon based on the reviews and asked for a color correction expert because I made my hair ash/greenish, and was referred to Salem. She listed attentively to me, and I showed her pictures of the color highlights that I wanted, and it seemed she understood. She made me feel confident that she could remove the green/ash and give me the medium golden brown base with golden brown highlights that I wanted. The lighting in there is terribly artificial, so 3 hours later, after she said that she used a "neutral base" (remember, I said I wanted a golden brown base), it was dark outside and since the lighting in there wasn't realistic, she told me to go home and look at it, and if I needed anything more/less/fixed, to come back and she would do it for free, no problem. I paid $95 for base color, $65 for highlights (not bad, I have shorter hair), and $105 (!) for a haircut! I went home and could not believe that I still had greenish/ash brown base with yellow highlights! I did this myself and that's what I came in to have corrected! I went back the next day and Salem managed to warm up the overall effect, I went home and looked at it - now she covered up all of the highlights and I was left with an overall one color dark golden brown with NO more highlights except for a few yellow ones still peeking through, no shine, dull, drab color! Now I needed to have highlights put back in! I wasn't about to go back there a 3rd time because I didn't think she knew what she was doing at this point and I lost all confidence in her. I couldn't believe she let me leave looking like that and she could be proud of her work. My hair can handle a lot and is still in good condition. However, I felt that I should be refunded for the hair coloring part. I left a message and they said no refunds, but the owner wanted to see my hair. No thank you!-not going back! And the haircut is NOT worth $105.00! And I didn't get a scalp massage like everyone else!

Meticulous? Chic? Fun? These are three things that I did not experience at this Salon. I experienced horrible service and nothing but humility and belittlement. I witnessed other clients sitting silently while their stylist and the other stylists talked about their previous clients and who was Hot this month (celebrities) and who's dating who. Every client that paid and walked out of the salon was talked about and not in a nice way! Not only did I receive horrible service, but my hairtrim grew out as if it was chopped by a beginner with dull scissors! And Kyle is no beginner... I am never stepping foot in this salon and definitely not recommending it to my friends or family.

Kyle has been looking after me and my coif for several years now. Fate brought me to him after a horrible experience in a hollywood salon that left me SILVER. i showed up at the salon he was working with in Venice, luck had it that he had an opening, and he fixed my hair, calmed my nerves, and was just lovely. i have followed him to his new salon in santa monica and am a dedicated Kyle Mathis fan, no one will ever touch my hair again. and the day he moves cross country or to Iceland, im there with him.
Tell him what youre thinking, what you want, and he will work with you to make it happen...one of the best listeners with a very sincere nature about him. His talent is unmatched.

I went to Kyle Mathis Hairdressing looking for a new salon and was pleasantly surprised. I am a very picky customer and SONYA made me feel at home. Not only is VERY talanetd, but she also LISTEN to you! My hair needed a different color and she was very attentive and professional. The color she did were very natural and complimentary to my skin color. She also styled my hair and it looked thicker and shinier than ever. Overall her service was excellent and I have never be happier with my hair. I have recommended her to all of my friends and family...

Finally!....I have the color and style I absolutely want. Oh and I got a trim...and yes it was only that ...the lovely stylist didn't chop my hair off. Ever since I started going to Kyle Mathis Hairdressing, I've been more than happy with my hair. Don't get me wrong i've had some cool color and cuts before..but not that exact ONE I've envisioned myself with. The stylist to see is Salem...she's all tatted up. I swear she really cared that I was happy....you might ask how would I know? Oh...I know when someone is sincere or if they're just trying to make a dime. Anyway...I loved my hair now that Salem colors and styles it and I highly suggest YOU take a shot.

Finally!....I have the color and style I absolutely want. Oh and I got a trim...and yes it was only that ...the lovely stylist didn't chop my hair off.

Wow! A geat place for a haircut! Kyle Mathis Salon is a block from the beach in Santa Monica. I went in on a post Farmer's Market Saturday afternoon and got a great haircut, plus highlights and lowlights from Salem. Salem is more than a stylist; she is part artist, part pyschoanalyst, and she took the time to figure the best style for me. taking into consideration that I absolutely refuse to use products or spend longer than 15 minutes on my hair in the morning. The result was a cut that I was still getting compliments on weeks later. I had a lot of previous color in my hair. and Salem worked with that to create a brand new look. I highly recommend Salem at Kyle Mathis Salon.

Pros: Grat, personalized service

Cons: hard to find parking

I followed Kyle to this new location, having been a loyal client for 2 years. After moving to LA, I was looking for a stylist who never made me regret paying what I was paying. My vision is always easily communicated, everyone is really cool, and I always look taller and thinner than when I walked in. What more can you ask for. Plus the person who prepped me for my wedding provided me with amazing extensions the I use regularly.

I went to the same hairstylist for over 10 years. I was afraid to go anywhere else. I tried tons of places but they never got it right. Then I found Kyle Mathis and Salem. She is a PERFECTIONIST with color. I die my hair blonde but it is thin and fragile. As most of you know with thin and fragile hair having blonde hair is dangerous. Salem is a miracle worker, she can die my hair blonde without using bleach or harsh chemicals and it looks AMAZING!!!! not only is she good at color, she also cut the best graduated bob I've had in a long time. Every time I walk out of the salon, my head is held high and my confidence is boosted! GO SEE SALEM!!! I PROMISE YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!

I have been wanting to go blonde for quite some time, but was nervous of the outcome, since I had bold brown hair. My stylist Salem seemed so hip, modern, and possessed a confident attitude in getting the absolute perfect outcome. She balianged my hair, meaning highlighted it but in a way that looks natural yet blonde how I wanted it. I have continued to go to her for color, hair cuts, up-do's, etc. She is amazing and truly has an natural eye for hair, i recommend her to everyone and they understand what i mean when i say she is amazing!!

I had a great experience at Kyle Mathis. Mary-Kate was my stylist and she is amazingly talented.
I have been in Los Angeles for two years and been to numerous salons but remained unhappy with the results every time. I feel like I have finally found my stylist in Mary-Kate. She listened to what I wanted in regards to hair color and it came out EXACTLY as I imagined it in my head.....and the cut, on which I gave her limited restrictions, is amazing. It is light and full of volume - and I can let it air dry or do it up and it looks good both ways!

The overall service at Kyle Mathis was great as well. Very personable, competent, and helpful.

Thanks so much, guys! I have gotten so many compliments!

Stumbled apon Kyle Mathis via a google search -- I had no idea how cool this place would be (both the people and the atmosphere). Mary Kate did a great job on the cut and had a really great outgoing personality, too.

I had my hair done by Mary-Kate. She pampered me and gave me her full attention. She did such a great job on my hair and was so pleasant to talk with! From the moment I sat in her chair I felt comfortable and at ease. I have had some bad experiences with stylists not listening to my hair need in the past. Not this time. The salon had a great atmosphere, and I will come to see Mary-Kate every time I'm in Santa Monica! I reccomend Kyle Mathis salon to everyone.

I used to like Mathis Murphy, but Kyle Mathis Hairdressing is far superior. It is a totally different vibe. More comfortable, relaxed, without pretense... a completely enjoyable experience. This is Kyle's second salon and the first salon he has owned without a partner. His artistic nature, genuine spirit, and creativity fill the place. He has assembled a caring, skilled, and creative staff that take the time to get to know you. They can do anything! Any color and any cut, but more importantly they will give you the look that best suits your features, your fashion, and your lifestyle. You will not be rushed in and rushed out. Your appointment will be on time. You will not be helped, you will be cared for...and truly, what is better than that?

Great place to be pampered while receiving an updated look to your style and color. The staff was gracious, ambience soothing and upbeat, and the special attention unexpected. After consultation with Kyle about life style, business, etc he created the perfect hairstyle and color to match every part of my life, from hiking to business meetings. I had been looking for the Bumble and Bumble products as a friend had introduced me to the luxury feel and easy styling of my hair with their products and was pleased to see a wide array of them at Kyle Mathis Hairdressing. I found Kyle after he moved from Venice and was delighted with the easier parking and location by a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment. Definitely a great find in Santa Monica.

Pros: the artistry of Kyle's styling techniques

Cons: I have to drive a distance, but definitely worth it!!

I leave feeling beautiful. My husband loves him and has never looked better. My 16 year old son wouldn't let anyone else touch his hair. Hair dressers don't get any better.

I have been to a number of salons in my 60+ years. In most I feel uncomfortable. But not in Kyle Mathis. The staff is attentive and gracious. The music playing is mellow and relaxing. And then the haircut - well it is great. Kyle Mathis use to be in Venice but his new salon is far superior. The colors in the salon, the layout of the salon and the staff exceed any other salon. And the location!! Who can beat being a half block from the 3rd street promenade and 2 blocks from the ocean. WOW. And the parking garage is just a half block away. Kyle has years of experience so you are in expert hands. Treat yourself to the experience. You will wonder why you didn't get there sooner.

My hair is very thick and long and no one else can do what he does to my hair! I love his talent and highly reccomend him to anyone who wants a hair transformation!

This is a great place for great hair - color, cut, new style, old style, long or short, funky or more traditional. I love this location, and that's only second to the comfort inside.

So, Kyle does the trick to keep me looking good! And everyone there is talented. well-trained, and nice to be around. Make this place a must! You'll be glad you did, and you'll keep coming back. It's truly a feel-good place, and you'll leaving looking FABULOUS! I highly recommend it, much more than the five star max! Take a look at the website, there's a great photo to give you a sense of the colorful and stylish possibilities!

HOT location, HOT decor, HOT stylists, cold drinks, lots of fun, and I always leave HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. I LOVE it when a complete stranger stops me to tell me they love my hair - and - it truly happens all the time! I tell them it's all because of Kyle! He has everything it takes for fabulous color, style, and HOT hairdressing...even though I don't get that word "hairdressing" fitting the elegant signature and upscale style of this salon and the work done here --- It's a great environment, and that?s a must for me. My salon has to be a place I enjoy and filled with people I want to be around since I never miss that touch up & trim every 4 weeks.
Yes, I totally recommend it. Everyone working there has both talent and passion for their craft. Oh, and there are these massaging chairs that are pretty cool.
Check it out. Then be ready for people you don't know telling you they LOVE your hair...it may lead to unexpected pleasures with strangers!!!!
Yep, all that and more because of Kyle Mathis Hairdressing!

When I first met Kyle, he asked me what I wanted done. I said I wanted my hair to look like my hairdresser was blind and had never cut hair in his life before. He didn't let me down, and I've followed him from salon to salon ever since. I'd give him six stars if I could. Maybe seven, after the fab glass of wine I got when I last went in...

Last week while visiting my daughter in Santa Monica, we happened upon a very sheik yet down to earth salon near the promenade. Exhausted after lunch and shopping, I was treated to a very nice head and neck massage before my actual haircut. The stylist, Salim, had some really great ideas to freshen up my look and when she was done with the blowout, my hair has never looked better. The style actually lasted for days afterward and i cannot wait to go back for some color next week. The whole experience was professional and relaxing.

I had an important evening business function to go to and I had completely forgot about it until I got myself to work on the morning of. My regular stylist was fully booked and couldn't fit me in. I found Kyle Mathis Hairdressing right next door to my office and was amazed how easy it was to walk right across the street and get an amazing style for the reception that night. I sat down and had a quick conversation with Kyle. I felt completely relaxed and was totally impressed with the style- impressed enough to consider leaving my long time stylist in favor of seeing Kyle full time. If you are looking for a talented and capable stylist in a professional salon, I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed.
