Fabulous stylist find in Sonoma!! After relocating to the area from Europe, I was in desperate need of a cut/fresh look and highlights for my wild blonde hair. Len not only gave me an amazing and super chic cut, but his color was top notch! I HIGHLY recommend his new Sonoma Red Loft Salon and look forward to my next visit! p.s. my boyfriend cannot not stop complimenting my new ""do"" :)
Took a chance and made an appointment after only reading reviews about Len - the greatest chance ever!!!!!! My first impression was through how simple and fool proof his appointment making is. Then, when you actually meet him, his warmth and compassion make the couple of hours go by so quickly. My hair has never felt so healthy and I constantly receive compliments on how beautiful the color is.
Trust me, I had know idea how bad my hair looked until Len got a hold of me!!!!! And now, WoW!!!!!\r
At my age I have been to the corner & back looking for outstanding, talented artists who understand hair color, blonde specifically......\r
Len magically transformed my tired blonde hair with gosh awful 'copper tinted roots' into the most beautiful shade of blonde and excuse the espression, ""I look like I was born with it!""\r
The man is a genius...I do not travel for nearly an hour for mediocrity! \r
I have finally found a wonderful genius who, with grace, ease, and confidence can make me look like my ole (not old) blonde self. \r
See you soon!\r
Len hair to repair 2 bad haircuts from a previous hair dresser, not only did he fix my hair but now I have gone back to him several times and will continue to see him.
He does not use any clippers just scissors
It takes a long time to find the right stylist and he's the one.
Thank you Len , your the best.
I just came back from my amazing haircut in Sonoma from Len and he's definitely gained a loyal client in me! I came 15 minutes late and he still took me in and he even pushed back his next appointment for me. The salon in Sonoma is clean and beautiful. Len greeted me warmly and ensured that he'd give me a great haircut. I heard that phrase many a time before at GSquared (avoid/run for the hills), Marlon Ramos (""nice"" but mildly volatile stylist that will give you a piece of his mind if you don't like his cut or color), and Wes Pine (HUGELY overrated). All of these people and salons have 5/5 stars but Len is TRULY the REAL deal. His professional, highly knowledgeable, EXPERT, pleasant demeanor marked highly in my book and not to mention is unreal hairstyling skills.
The haircut itself was amazing. I hadn't cut my hair in a year and 2 months so it was beyond long. I told him I wanted to cut 6 inches off and to give me great layers as well as volume. He did this and more. He ensured that my cut worked with my face and even provided suggestions that actually worked perfectly for my face and hair. The end product was amazing. It was a bit shorter than I'm used to but he's seriously that talented he made me love my hair at this length!! Keep in mind, had anyone cut my hair this short, I would've cried/freaked out but I have no idea how or what Len did but it worked and I LOVE my hair. My hair has so much texture, style, and volume. I'm excited to return for color and can only imagine how great that will turn out.
Len is an incredibly sweet, talented, and unpretentious person. Please do not hesitate to visit him at his Sonoma or San Francisco salon :)
So if you happen to me torn when picking various 5 star salons, pick Len. You won't regret it! I was skeptical initially since many of those 5 star reviews in Yelp and CitySearch are so misleading but this girl is a believer now!
Thank you so much Len and I'm so excited to visit you again!
I am very picky about my hair and have tried various places without much success. I also have long wavy hair that is not easy to manage. Len is not only able to make my hair look amazing while looking 100% natural, but he also is great at recommending what looks good with my skin tone and hair length. He really listens to what i am looking for and is able to give advice on what works best for me. He is not just a hair dresser, he is truly a hair stylist and consultant. Once i discovered Len, i have been coming back and getting more and more satisfied with the results each time. Will highly recommend!
Artistic, pleasant, enormously talented stylist and colorist, I cannot say enough great things about Len. He does my hair and my husband's hair and these cuts last! They grow out beautifully.
I wanted to go lighter with my haircolor and Len suggested doing highlights. He did them perfectly. My hair looks richer, lighter and less harsh. The quality of products he uses and the care with which he selects and blends the strands is pure artistry. We are so happy!
I wish I could leave more than 5 stars! Len is more a 10 star hairstylist and colorist! I just had my hair cut and colored (yes I color my hair, I will admit to that!) last week by Len the amazing hairstylist and colorist! I just moved to San Francisco last month from Washington D.C. and got a referral from a co-worker went to that other stylist (at a well known salon on Maiden Lane) first of all it was pretentious, they acted as if they were doing me a favor doing my hair, EXPENSIVE even by Union Square standards! I never went back! I felt I had wasted my hard earned money! Then I decided to research hairstylists (and colorists) on line, and low and behold I happened upon Len. He had so many great things written about him, I just had to make an appointment! I did, on line in fact! Is that easy or what?! I had to change my appointment time to another day and called his help desk, they told me they were available 24/7 they were extremely helpful and polite! I then finally went into see Len, right away I could tell he had a lot of experience, he made me feel comfortable (I brought in pictures to show him of how I would like the hairstyle to look) he and I really communicated well! He listened, then he cut my hair, and colored it (beatiful rich Auburn, with lighter Caramel colored highlights) the result, a color that looks natural but gets me noticed! (I hate the obvious colored hair look!) My cut is amazing, it has so much movement, volume in the right places! SO if you want to finally find your hairstylist (who also happens to do amazing coloring and highlights!) then Len is your man! Nice guy, Nice salon atmosphere (in S.F.) And you can schedule on line! Thanks Len you are the best at what you do! I'm thrilled and will be back time and time again to see you! CAN'T WAIT until my next appointment!
Edward scissor hands doesn't have anything on Len! Len is a fantastic stylist and gives a haircut that works for your hair type and your lifestyle. Len takes his time, listens, and works his magic. Each time I have seen Len, I walk out feeling great about my look and get loads of compliments. Whether you are looking for a new style or a new stylist, you will be glad you went to see Len!
i'm so grateful to have a professional of this calibur in sonoma. with his checkered past in the art world, including hanging with andy warhol back in the great new york days (although i'm sure len did NOT do his hair), he has the confidence and skill to create an amazing haircut/color for your particular type of hair, and he isn't afraid to tell you if you are making a mistake. len cares about the health of your mane.
if you want to be comfortable about going to a new guy, you will not be disappointed in this kind, adorable man.
When I first made an appointment with Len, it was because I liked him so much personally. But I already had someone who I thought was doing a great job with my hair so I wasn't sure how all that would pan out.\r
Little did I know, but my hair color and cut actually had a lot of room for improvement. Len did a total color and cut make over, and with stunning results. I get regular comments on how beautiful my hair is. It is subtle enough where many people couldn't put their finger on what was different, and ultimately they shrub and just say, ""You've never looked better!"" Really, that's the ultimate compliment!\r
Len is worth every dollar you could possibly spend. He is also great about recommending products that are good for your hair and provide the nutrients and protection your hair needs.\r
Even with all that said, my favorite thing about Len is that he has the biggest heart in the world. If you don't know him, you are missing out....plus, if you think you look good now, just wait!
Folks, if you're as picky about your hair as I am then Len is the man for you. I was looking for a stylist who not only knows their stuff but truly cares about the end result. Len fits this bill to a tee. I love how he does my hair - everything from the cut to highlights to all over color is top notch. And if that wasn't enough, Len's a real nice guy too.
Thanks for my pretty hair, Len!!! See you soon!!
Len came recommended to me by a co-worker, then I find out, two of my other co-worker's in a different department go to him as well?! Small world! Anyway, made an appointment with his call service, they were polite, efficient, and I received an email confirmation about my appointment as soon as I finished with them on the phone! (I found out later from Len that you can schedule an appointment directly through his web-site! Pretty cool and good to know!) I went in, Len greeted me, we consulted (he's a really good listener) he gave me exactly what I wanted, suggested ways I could make my haircut look like I just stepped out of the salon, gave me product recommendations, Len's a true professional and the best at what he does! The only down side he's only here in S.F. two days Thursdays and Fridays, and some Saturdays! :-( the rest of the time he's up in the Wine Country (Sonoma) Anyway, Thanks Len I love my hair! You're simply the best! I will be back (with I'm sure plenty of other co-worker's! LOL!)
For the past 2 years I've been dividing my time between the East Coast and Sonoma. Love Sonoma but couldn't find a good hairdresser until Len was suggested to me by a friend.
Love the color and cut, and Len is warm and relaxing to be with. Just one major problem, Len ----------- want you to be here full time!!!!!!!!
OMG, OMG, OMG! I am absolutely crazy thrilled with my hair!!!! I love this guy! So nice, talented, isn't snotty or full of himself, love the salon too! Found my new guy on the internet (Google) which lead me here, read the reviews, I thought to myself, I'm in! Booked online through Len's web-site, so easy!!! (what a relief so my boss at work cant hear me make a hair appointment over the phone! LOL!) went in, Len greeted me as if he had always known me, great connection! Great cut, he had time to do my color too, so I had him do some highlights, wow! LOVE it!!!! I'm hooked for life! I have found my new hair guy! Len! Thanks, I'll be back in a few weeks! Can't wait! You are the BEST at what you do!
I've now been to Len twice on the recommendation of a friend and have been extremely happy with the results both times! Both times I've gotten my hair trimmed/shaped and highlighted, and both times I've gotten what I hoped for!
Not only does he do a great job, but he takes the time at the beginning of the appointment to listen to what I'm looking for and actually get a feel for my hair! I've had to seriously force stylists in the past to look at my hair before they do anything to it!
He really takes care to listen to your preferences and concerns and provide his own opinion without being pushy; which for me makes him completely worth the price!
I first heard about Len through the local Sonoma paper (The Sonoma Index Tribune) Len was running an Ad, I found out from Len that he is new to the Sonoma area and divides his time between San Francisco and the Wine country, so I decided to give him a shot. I had an amazing stylist back in Atlanta as well as New York (I lived in both places) but now I'm pleased to say I have an AMAZING stylist and colorist with Len! He listens to me, each time I go in for my appointment, we have a consultation on what worked, what I might like to change (either haircut or color-wise) I'm hear to tell you I don't want to change anything! His haircuts are amazing! They grow out so well! The color he does on me looks so natural! (and I have had some of the best colorists in both New York and Atlanta!) I LOVE the salon in the Wine country (Sonoma) its called CHEVEUX, beautifully decorated, friendly staff, and I also like his San Francisco salon, which is bigger, busier, but everyone is nice,welcoming and I LOVE the product line Len referred for my hair at the S.F. location its called Rene Furterer! It has really helped to restore my hair, so the color stays longer, doesn't fade as quickly, looks shiny, feels soft and my hair feels healthy! Plus I am in LOVE with the smell of the product! So not only is Len a GREAT stylist and colorist, but he makes product recommendations so that you get the same (or close!) look as when you left the salon after his amazing talented work! I LOVE his on-line scheduling as well, very convenient and not having to call the salon and speak to a receptionist that puts you on hold for 5 or 10 minutes. All around 5 stars (10 stars if I could give it to Len on here!) I LOVE, LOVE my hair! What more can I say?\r
Finally, I am writing a review for my stylist Len! I have been seeing Len (the magician!) for years! (8 years to be exact) I first started seeing Len at the recommendation of a friend and co-worker at Len's former salon Utopia. He is easy to talk to, communicate with and he listens and delivers! I have never been disappointed in all these years ever! Sure a lot of other stylists I have gone to did a nice job, but with the others it was hit and miss, sometimes good, sometimes not so good, what I love about Len (one of the many things) is that he is consistently good, each and every time. My highlights look natural, not yellow, brassy or orange, and my haircuts always grow out great! Sometimes when I go in for my follow up appointment I often times wonder to myself, why am I here? The color and haircut still look good! even after 5 weeks! Now that is the sign of a truly gifted and talented stylist and haircolorist! Maybe I will try him in his Sonoma location as well (good excuse to go wine tasting!) His San Francisco salon (Frange Blue) is nice, laid back and Len has his own room which he shares with 2 other stylists, so it is cozy, and not chaotic. Go and see Len for yourself and you'll thank me later! Thanks Len for MANY happy hair years!
I had been going to the same stylist for 10 years, and it was no longer working. Bad hair cut and worst of all, my color was inconsistent and unflattering. As an actor, it's so important to look like my head shot. Time to google CitySearch and was very impressed with Len's reviews. ""This guy is too good to be true,"" I thought. He wasn't! He corrected the bad hair cut and created a beautiful ""Irish Setter"" (his term) red for me. I loved it, and I got so many compliments.
I've been traveling to SF for 5 months now, and it is such a fun experience: time in the city, a rejuvenation of me, and delightful conversation with Len.
I have gone to Len twice at his Sonoma salon, for hair cuts and color. I LOVE the work he does - I always get compliments on my hair. Even my former stylist in San Diego (who I had used for 7 years) was impressed with the work Len does. He is terrific - you will be pleased with his talent and work. He books quickly, so be sure to schedule an appointment in advance.
Len has gotten me over my fear of hair cuts,at last! And, I can't even talk about color! My hair has never looked or felt so good. The cut holds the shape and even with my red color I don't get the fade out that used to make me crazy. Now I can be that sassy red head on the outside, I always felt that I was inside.
I found Len on line made the appointment and changed my image. I love that he is in Sonoma, only half hour from me in Petaluma.
And by the way Len is much cheaper than a shrink and the conversation is much better!
I think I'm even selling more cars now. Just because I feel so good about how I look!
Thanks to LenDoesMyHair!.
Just because you live outside of the City doesn't mean you can't have a sophisticated hairstyle! Ever since moving to Sonoma from San Francisco several years ago, I've been searching..Now, I'm a brand new ""Len"" convert and VERY happy to have found him.
Len has a relaxed, down-to-earth attitude and provides a truly heavenly hair experience ?? what excellent technique ?? he makes it look so easy! I can go on, but you really have to make an appt. and find out for yourself ?? super easy to do online, where you can view his availabilty in either Sonoma or SF ?? another plus for this guy.
Welcome to Sonoma Len, keep up the fabulous work!
Len is a great guy, he knows hair! We talked for a time on what my ideas were as well as his recommendations. Nothing is rushed, and Lens does every part of your new hair creation. With my lovely glass of wine we began this adventure together. On the conversation front, Len is fun and we talked until our lips fell off. The SF salon is great and friendly. Parking was the only hard part of my day there. My new head of hear is soft, playful and SO simple to do daily. I love that part; it does not take a master hair person to recreate the wonderful look Len gave me. I went to an event the following day and got compliments from people I did not even know! Love that! Thank you Len!\r
Was at a low point with my hair when a friend showed up with a fantastic new cut and color. I immediately made an appt. at the Sonoma location where I had the great fortune to meet Len. After a brief consultation, he set to work and I emerged with a whole new outlook on the world with my now easy to deal with ""do."" I spend alot of time in the out of doors and after a day of recreating, would have to wear a hat just to go to the store. Now, I just give it a toss and I am ready to go. Have retired my hot rollers after 25 years. Thanks Len. See you next month.
I have been using the same hair stylist for the past 10 years. Reluctant to try someone else, my husband convinced me to try a stylist closer to our Sonoma home. I was fortunate to have heard about Len, I tried him at his Sonoma location (he is there a few days a week), and absolutely loved the result!\r
I have had more compliments on my hair than I ever had before, and here's the clincher: We recently got back from a trip to Nicaragua, and I rarely had access to a blow dryer. My hair always looked great, truly the measure of a fantastic haircut!!\r

All I can say is WOW! Well, ok, thats not all! I just had my hair colored, highlighted and had an amazing, awesome haircut by the hair genious that is named Len. I found him on line by doing a google search, the guy is ALL over the internet. I figured he must be good! I made an appointment on line (which is more than convenient! Especially when you're at work!) that way your boss doesn't hear you talking to some lame receptionist when you're supposed to be working! Am I right?! Anyway, I went in, salon was nice enough, very chill, laid back, unpretenious, I was greeted by Len, who was warm,welcoming, and overall very friendly. I knew instantly after my 20 minute consultation with him, that I was in good hands. A good listener, he made suggestions, but respected my opinions as well. The end result, a rich color, with natural, beautiful looking highlights and the cut! OMG! I fell instantly in love with it. Only down side, I found out he only works 3 days in the city, rest of the time he's up in Sonoma, makin the ladies in the Wine Country beautiful. So I instantly made 3 follow up appointments with him! If I were you I wouldn't wait, RUSH into see him! He's about the best stylist and colorist I have had, and trust me I have had the so called ""best"" in New York, L.A. Chicago, forget them! Len is the only one you need. Thanks Len, guess I just couldn't say, All I can say is wow!
I have been in search of a new colorist for over a year, going from top salon to top salon, getting sub-par results. Len is the FIRST professional who took TIME to talk to me, offer his expertise about the color that would look best against my skin tone (I am platinum and wanted to stay platinum), so it was a big risk but he KNOWS what he's talking about, he's an expert and he DELIVERS. He tones down the platinum that was washing me out giving my hair depth and texture. This is no easy task to accomplish, first time he has seen my hair, most colorists take 2-3 visits just to get it right. Not Len, there is a reason all the review are EXCEPTIONAL, bc he has crafted years of training and epxerience coupled with a kind and fun delivery to make his clients trust him and listen. I'm so glad I went to see him, he is my new colorist and the BEST in SF by far! Thank you Len for gently coaxing me to tone down the platinum, your a hair color god! Not only is his work perfect but he works so fast and effortless and the conversation is fun. Every woman who wants to be a blonde should see Len, he is THE resident expert. THANK YOU LEN!
I googled best hairstylist and best hair colorist on the internet and this guy Len kept coming up all over the internet, I figured he had to be pretty good. I tried to schedule an appointment with Len at his San Francisco location, but he was booked, so I decided to take a drive to Sonoma. I'm glad I did! The salon is charming, and very centrally located, the salon was clean, modern and had a great vibe! Best of all was my appointment with Len. He communicates very well (no gray areas whatsoever!) He listened, he asked questions and the result?! Amazing color! (natural, believable, but shiny and healthy!) Rich looking! (he highlighted and lowlighted my natural brown color) The cut fantastic! It just lays right, I barely need to do anything with it! Next time I will go see him in the city (as I live in San Francisco) but let me tell you ladies, if you can't get into see him in the city, then it is definitely worth the drive to Sonoma (just under an hour) But try the city location, from the looks of it on the google map, it looks like its right around the corner from Union Square. Thanks Len! I will be back, Hurray! I have found my hair guy for all of my hair needs! LEN YOU'RE THE BEST!
After doing a bit of research in Sonoma for a new hairstylist, I found that Len was spending part of his time at Cheveux Salon in Sonoma. I read reviews, his bio and I thought this was my man and sure enough.....I have a new sassy haircut, with fantastic blonde highlights. I love, love, love my hair. My husband, who probably wouldn't notice if I had a wart growing on my nose, was really impressed. If you are thinking about going to Len, DO! He knows his locks and is charming to boot!
I read about Len in the Sonoma paper (the Sonoma Index Tribune) decided I had been seeing my local stylist too long (wasn't really that happy with her anyway!) decided to try Len, and I am hooked! Len cut my hair brilliantly! Layered my hair so it just falls into place without a lot of styling! He also colored my hair a rich reddish-brown and added some thin caramel highlights, and Wow! Shiny, healthy asked about hair! I LOVE to tell people ""Len does my hair""! With a giggle of course! Len I am hooked! Whether it's Sonoma we're talking about or in San Francisco, I know you're the best amongst the very best! Thank you Len!
Well if you haven't had Len cut or Hi-lite or color your hair then you are missing out !!! I am the proud owner of Cheveux Salon in Sonoma and I know when I am getting a"" Fabulous hair cut and color"" and Len did that for me. I love, love, love my hi lites and cut! I feel sexy and beautiful after sitting in Len's chair. He listens to you as a client and the whole experience is just wonderful! Not only do I love working side by side with him but I love how LEN DOES MY HAIR!!
I have never written a review before on anything or anybody. I just couldn't help but write this about my new stylist Len. Warm, funny, he listens and he is talented! I had him cut and highlight my hair. I was skeptical, and a little nervous. I had read great things about him all over the internet, but when it comes to your own hair,...... well you know what I'm talking about ladies! Len made me feel comfortable, welcome and he listened to my ideas, suggestions and concerns. The end result, a rich, beautiful, REAL looking highlight (Len used 3 colors!) and a cut that still looks good 2 weeks later! Even when I dry and style it myself! Now thats the true test! Am I right? Thanks Len! I'll be back and will refer as MANY people as I can to you, I'm thrilled! Just don't book up so much that you don't have time for me! :-)
I just saw Len in Sonoma at Cheveux salon, he didn't have a listing on Citysearch's Sonoma listing, so I checked and lo and behold he's on San Francisco's Citysearch (makes sense being as he works in 2 salons) Anyway, I read about Len in the local Sonoma paper a while back, but didn't book anything with him until last month! (He books up ahead in Sonoma! so if you want to see him there, do it now! I had to wait 4 weeks for an appointment!) Anyway, he welcomed me to the salon, which I immediately loved! (it's one of the finest in Sonoma!) and has a San Francisco feel to it, only very chill, not rushed, not hurried (just like Sonoma!) He introduced me to the owner Sharna, very nice lady, and the other stylists at the salon were pleasant and made me feel at home. I had been going to a stylist all the way down in Palo Alto (if you can believe that!) This person trained at DiPetro Tod in the city, but I couldn't do the commute anymore to Palo Alto! Then I found Len, when he shared with me that he also trained at DiPetro Tod in San Francisco I was convinced, and rightfully so! He gave me the most natural, beautiful, shiny highlights and he gave me a haircut that still looks good (after I washed and styled it myself!) so ladies, if you want to look your best, either come up here to Sonoma to see Len, or go to his San Francisco salon, either way, either location, you won't be disappointed! I love! Love! LOVE! my hair! Thank you Len you are my hair genius!
I read about Len in the Sonoma paper. When I read he was doing hair in San Francisco, I had a feeling he would be good.
Back in the 80's and early 90's, I had a guy name Sonny doing my hair in Atlanta. Sonny was one you could really trust with your hair. I would let him run with his ideas,
always a great decision. I have not found anyone like Sonny till I met Len. My new haircut and first highlights I love. I found my new Sonny.
Hats of to you Len
Pros: He knowsthe best color and style for you. No more magazines
Cons: Absolutely None
I am seriously the most critical and picky guy I know for hair.....anything at that matter. I moved from the OC and have had haircuts at the best of the best. But good LORD Len is disgustingly amazing! You know when you just want not only something drastically different, but something people will see and say ""Damn, your hair style is so incredible."" I literally had three of coworkers immediately make an appointment the next day I came into work with my new style. He literally treats hair like art. I always think to myself, ""Why am I paying you this much and it looks so average?"" I mean I've had good cuts, but never anything editorial worthy. Aaaaaamazing. GO!
Pros: Hair is his ART
Cons: That I didn't find him sooner
This is my first review here, but I've had Len cut my hair since the early 90's! He's a nice guy who is very good at what he does, but I keep coming back simply because I trust him! I know I'm in good hands, and he has never let me down! And he has a flexible schedule and a convenient location in downtown San Francisco! The only bad thing is that I've become so dependent on Len...if anything happens to him, I honestly don't know who I would let touch my hair!!!
Len has colored/highlighted, cut and styled my hair twice now in the past three months and I have never been more pleased with a hair stylist!
First of all, he listens carefully to what you think you want. Then he discusses your suggestions carefully and thoughtfully. Next he might make a suggestion or two of his own and listens to your responses. When you both agree to a plan, he gets to work and creates the most pleasing results! He never exerts any pressure on you, which is something I truly appreciate!
As if this isn't enough, he is a very congenial, sincere and well-meaning person; always wearing a smile and putting YOU first. You immediately feel comfortable when you first walk into this Sonoma salon, which is called Cheveux Salon (French for ""hair""). The decor is cool and refreshing in its straightforward yet elegant classiness. It is located in a charming courtyard right on the historic Sonoma Plaza.
I have had my hair done in many salons over the years, including in San Francisco many years ago, and I have never been more pleased with the results than those I've gotten with Len. I recommend him completely and totally to anyone and everyone!
Pros: Len Listens, Responds, Creates and Pleases!
Cons: Absolutely none
I found Len in an article in our local newspaper (the Sonoma Index Tribune) and decided to make an appointment with Len in Sonoma. I used to get into San Francisco more often but with two tennage children it's next to impossible, thank god Len is up here in Sonoma as well!\r
I didn't realize Len had so many positive reviews (I had not been on Citysearch's website before he asked me to check it out) All I can say is Len you are heaven sent! I immediately felt comfortable with Len, his knowledge about haircutting as well as coloring (he did both on my hair) amazed me! I had been to a few good stylists in San Francisco as well as Sonoma but I never quite found the right person until now. My color is natural looking (a must at my age!) my haircut is very easy to make it look good (or salon styled) and my hair feels soft to the touch and has a shine to it that it has not had for a long time! I scheduled my appointment on line and had to change it a couple of times as well. Len's call center is fast, courteous and polite not to mention convenient. Overall experience with Len is excellent! I love Cheveux salon in Sonoma as well! The owner and everyone that works there is very nice! I just wish he were here in Sonoma full time!\r
But maybe next time I'll simply take a drive to the city (after I get someone to watch my two teenage kids!) Run to see this talented stylist before he books up completeley! Thank you Len!
Pros: Excellent hairstylist and colorist! Nice, knowledgeable
All I can say is Len is the best at what he does cutting and coloring! I have tried MANY so called talented hairstylists and or colorists, none of them live up to what I just experienced with Len! I was looking for a new stylist and colorist (as my last stylist retired she said it had something to do with carpal tunnel syndrome, I think it was more like....too many drugs!) Anyway, so I googled best hairstylist and best colorist and one person kept coming up, Len of LenDoesMyHair, I figured anyone that works in two locations has got to be good, .....the demand for Len! Then I was connected to Citysearch, and after reading his MANY reviews I thought I need to give this guy a try! Well after Len had cut and colored my hair I was convinced! The color is so natural (with a few highlights around the face to lighten up my otherwise dark features) and the cut Tres Magnique! Or in plain english, Just fantastic! Another convenient feature, you can actually schedule appointments with him on line, right after doing so I received a confirmation email, as well as a 3 day in advance reminder confirmation email no annoying reminder phone call, I thought to myself, this guy is not only a talented stylist and colorist but he's a smart business person as well! So run don't walk to go see this talented, warm and friendly guy! Oh and the salon is nice too! Good atmosphere and wonderful haircare products I recommend the french one which Len had recommended I try and Once again I am convinced! I think it's called Rene Furtrer?
Pros: Amazing stylist! On-line scheduling, he listens! Nice salon
Cons: He is pricey But I AM WORTH IT!
Before I went to see Len I looked, in terms of coloring, like a chipmunk. In terms of cut I was a sad mess. Thanks to Len's magic my hair has now a sophisticated and sun kissed look. The color is absolutely believable and does not look like it was done with a paint roller. In terms of cut I was stunned what Len could do with my unruly locks. My hair is in the shape of its life, and I had the time of my life getting it done.
Pros: Quick Appointment, Easy to find, Good Follow up
Cons: $$$ (but it's so worth it!!!)
First off, thank you Len! Believe me when I say, thank you to the man! This is the first time I've gotten a haircut where I received this many compliments! I first reached LenDoesMyHair googling the words ""Locks of Love"". I was looking for someone who was familiar with the program and also someone who WASN'T going to chop off my hair and call it a day. I found citysearch with LenDoesMyHair and his reviews said it all. I highly recommend Len to anyone looking for a great haircut! [Not just for Locks of Love] Great quality for a great price!
Pros: Great Haircut! Overall great treatment!
Cons: Bit on the expensive side (it is a salon!)
I read many reviews on line, about various hairstylists but no one was as widely displayed on line than this amazing artisan Len. I found Len by doing a Google search for best haircolorist and best hairstylist which lead me to Citysearch. I have always been a skeptic at heart, reading so many reviews I thought, can this be for real? Well...I'm hear to tell you it is! I met with Len for a haircut and Highlight. It was difficult getting an appointment with him (always a good sign!) and he told me that the reason being is that he is in two locations, S.F and Sonoma, that's why! I thought. Immediately upon meeting Len I could tell I was in good hands. Knowledgeable, experienced Len put me at ease all at once. He suggested, he LISTENED (which so many hairstylists tend not to do!) and afterwards I was amazed! My highlight which looked so natural (Len shared with me that he would use 3 colors to achieve this) looked natural,shiny, healthy and didn't feel fried (best part of all!) The cut looked amazing after he cut my hair, and best part, he showed me how to recreate the look at home! And I'm hear to tell you all that I was able to do! I am thrilled with my new colorist and hairstylist, next time maybe I'll take a drive to the Wine Country to get my hair done, I mean really... Wine tasting and getting your hair done by the best colorist and hairstylist, does it get any better? Thanks Len!
Pros: Skilled artisan! He listens! Scheduling on line! Nice!
Cons: Nothing what so ever!
The wait is over. Len is finally in Sonoma one day a week. It's always fun to have a fit guy wash your hair! However, Len also gives fabulous color and the best haircut I ever had. He doesn't even mind that I want to change my haircut every time I see him. Len and his clients have the best of two wonderful worlds - downtown San Francisco and on the Plaza in Sonoma. Thank you, Len!
Pros: I get lots of compliments
Cons: It took him too long to get to Sonoma
Being new to California and like most girls, I was scared to death to find someone new to do my hair. I turned to my trusty Citysearch and VOILA -- Len! As I'm reading through his multiple 5 star reviews, I'm thinking ""is this guy for real???""
So I set up my full highlight and haircut online (so easy) and gave him a try.
First of all, what a warm, intelligent, caring man. Committed to his craft and so easy to share my concerns about being new to the city, wanting something new, but not drastic and a color update... 10 minutes he spent consulting with me and managing expectations.
I am extremely happy with my new cut and color and can't wait to go back! Give this wonderful guy a try -- you won't be sorry!
Thank you Len!
Pros: This guy's got talent!
Haircuts are one place I don't scrimp. (A good haircut makes you look ""money,"" regardless of what you're wearing.) I was nervous trying a new stylist, but had read such glowing reviews of Len. Let me just say--what they say is true. He's effortlessly wonderful.
Len takes the time to cut, color, and blowdry so you leave the salon looking camera ready, hot date ready, change your life ready. Best of all, you feel as if you've spent time with a good friend--and you have. Len is an extraordinary soul with a big heart. Can't wait to see him again.
Pros: capable, caring pro
Cons: only in sonoma 1-2 days a week
Shhhhh...Talented, creative, warm and witty Len has come to Sonoma. He is at the Cheveux Salon on Tuesdays now. He styled my hair last week and I love it. Cheveux salon is right in the middle of downtown Sonoma, a beautiful salon with a convenient location. But shhhhh, don't tell the wine tourists or us locals will never be able to get an appointment
Pros: Beautiful salon, right in downtown Sonoma
I had the pleasure of having Len at Frange Blue do my hair color on Friday and i just have to say what a great job he did. He talked to me about what he thought would be good for my skin tone and that my old color had too much gold. We agreed upon a Sandy blond hilightes and some lowlites in a dark blond and to change my base tone to a more sandy tone as well. My hair always throws red/Gold and although I don??t mind that I was ready for a change. He did a terrific job. He is a master in color and I feel confident in recommending him to anyone. He takes great care and attention to detail and is very easy to talk to. It was a very enjoyable experience.
A very satisfied customer
Pros: color expert
If only every service provider would be like Len! I made my first appointment with him last week. I was SO impressed by his attitude -- which is one of actual interest in what his clients want and what they have to say about their hair. So many stylists I've been to are like ""Let me (the artist) work. It doesn't matter if you like it."" Best of all, Len took a great deal of time to explain to me EXACTLY what I would have to do to re-create the salon look at home on my own. I really can't say enough good things about how courteous, interested and professional he was. I simply LIKE him better than any other hairstylist I have ever been to - - and that's saying a lot, because I have been to what is considered the ""best"" in the City, which I really think just means the most expensive - - NOT necessarily the best hair cut and/or treatment from the stylist and staff. To me, Len's talent, coupled with his personality, make him a cut above (yes, pun intended) the rest.
Pros: Len is so professional and polite.
From the moment I walked into Frange Blue, I knew I had discovered gold. I read the reviews of Len's happy clients and I was duly impressed with all the glowing compliments he has received. I made my online appointment (very handy by the way ) and waited for the big day. As we all know, choosing a new stylist is no small matter. The moment I met Len, I knew I was in good hands. He listened to what I wanted and needed from a haircut. He understood my desires and wasn't afraid to make suggestions about how we could attain the perfect cut. He talked to me about everything he planned to do and then executed the cut perfectly. Len is not only a brilliant stylist but he is personable as well. So, not only did I get a wonderful cut but I had a wonderful visit with Len at the same time! Thanks Len!
Pros: Best Stylist Ever......
