Nice place I met Veka here last year after my friend told me that they did a great job and she was absolutely fabulous! And now I followed her at her second location! You won't be dissappointed!

Cool place, not what I am used to but I was surprised its pretty good. The services were very well done just the decor needs some sprucing up. Obviously its not why I come here though so it gets my thumbs up.

Ok ladies, those of you who were "born blonde" but need a little help from our colorist friends now that you're older, you know who you are, the girls who like to keep it looking natural, you must go to Veka!

I have recently moved to Calabasas ca, and I swear I will jump on my car every 8-10 weeks just to come back to Veka at arcadia 1st ave salon . She's been doing my highlights for 3 years now, and I couldn't be happier.

One thing to note about Veka, if you're one of those chicks who likes to gab and gab about shoes, nail polish, Katie Holmes, whatever... She's not that kind of girl. Veka keeps it real, she's a lovely person to chat with, but if you just want to sit there in silence and read your magazines, she'll happily let you do that too.

Be prepared to sit in that chair for at least 2-21/2 hours, veka has a very intricate weave which makes her so great! Your blonde will blend naturally, and when your roots grow out, I find that I can go a little longer than expected because it has a nice fade instead of a harsh stop/contour on your hair. Maybe that's wella for you though.

Bring cash to tip.

These girls really know their color methods. I have a really tough color to match. And I did an "out of the box" and it totally ruined everything. So what pleased me and made me write this review is the fact that they're now open on

I am new to the area and I had only had my hair done by another salon in the local mall. It was less than spectacular and the price was a little more than I would expect for the service. In any case I thought I'd check out what is around

1St Ave Salon is a beautiful salon. They offer you wine, water, sparkling water and many more different beverages. Everyone is super nice. I am obsessed with hair and how it looks. I have been EVERYWHERE in the city for blonde highlights

Wedding Hair &Makeup !. VEKA!I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing job on my hair and makeup at the wedding. I felt absolutely beautiful and looked flawless throughout the night. My mother and maid of honor were so pleased with their makeup and hair honestly, they never looked better! Everyone at the wedding was complimenting our makeup! I know I expressed concern before the wedding about my makeup not lasting throughout the day and night, but I could not believe how long the makeup lasted! I looked just as fresh at 2am as I did when you just did my makeup! I have honestly never felt so perfect, my hair do was perfect and it's all thanks to you and your Staff good talent!

Not only did your amazing makeup and hair skills make me feel beautiful, but your down-to-earth, positive personality made getting ready for my wedding so relaxing and enjoyable. You are truly a gem to work with. We had such a great time getting our makeup and hair done! You truly put 110% into your work, and I can't thank you and your team enough for your talent and hard work.

Your salon stylist are artist??s and have truly talented for hair and makeup and it was such a pleasure to work with. I have so many weddings coming up and could not imagine using anyone else for my makeup and Hair.

Thank you again for everything

It's been a week and my hair is still looking fabulous! I have to give the stylist Isabel another star. The coloring didn't dry up my hair like it always did at other salons. My hair looks so healthy now, I love it! The layers in my hair made it so easy to style it now. I will be returning in a few months for sure.

My first experience was as a skeptical walk-in. Now it's the only salon I go to. Their service is amazing. I have dropped in with a hair emergency three times and each time they fit me in and saved the day. I also like that I can get my eyebrows waxed done while I'm waiting for my color to process.

New to the area and in dire need of someone to tame my mane and snip some split-ends...I went on a hairstylist hunt.

I must admit, I'm not one for "one time cut" flings with stylists. I had developed pretty serious "relationships" with my previous stylists. And now forced to "cheat" I wanted to find someone worth it! I consulted Yelp for the best hairstylist in the area and found- 1stbave salon.

Cheating has never felt so good (3,000 miles made me do it!).
This is why, Veka:
- listens to your wants, needs, and lifestyle requirements
- makes you feel comfortable and is very attentive
- is knowledgeable about your hair type (texture, thickness, color, etc.)
- gives you more than a hair cut- he gives you a hairstyle that works with your hair type, face shape and desired level of maintenance
- takes his time so you leave with a polished flawless hairstyle

The $45 first-time-customer deal cut and treatment was icing on the cupcake. Veka is amazingly talented she tamed and transformed my thick frizzy/wavy hair into something beautiful. She also gives great treatments, for those of you with significant others or friends in need of some style.

**I highly recommend 1st ave salon for anyone (men and women) new to the area or looking to "cheat" on their stylist- well worth it!**

THE BEST FACIAL IN TOWN!!!!!

I have been looking for a new esthetician in my area and I found the awesome Marisa at 1st Ave Salon!!!!! She used Ayur Medic one of my favorite skin care products. This was one of the best facials I have ever had!!!! Great massage too!!! I have already scheduled another appointment with her. My sister had a brazilian wax from her and said she did a fantastic job. I may have to get one now ;)

I absolutely LOVE my hair!!! After a year of searching through the sea of Santa monica salons for someone I can trust, but who can bring solid advice to the table....I have found it in Veka!!! She is more than a hair designer....she is a chemist! She loves the chemistry of color more than any stylist I have ever met----and I have had my hair done by Bumble & Bumble NY, B2V in LA, Sebastian in LA, Garon in NY and Diapetro Todd in SF. I consider myself an expert consumer in hair! She takes small risks that make a big difference. I recommended her to my roomate and we both feel so good about our hair! she went a little darker than we expected on both of us....so beware of that. But, it is so worth it! Darker is something I would have never thought would have looked good and I feel my hair is the best it has looked in years. She uses very safe and vibrant colors----colors you do not find in colorists in L.A using often because they are expensive for her to purchase! No Wella here folks! She uses color from Italy, and Paris who create some of the richest and interesting shades I have ever seen. Plus, she is not overly expensive....ok, She is not cheap....but at least you get what you pay for and more with Veka! I love her\r

I can't rave enough about my experience at 1St Ave Salon \r
First of all, the minute you walk in, you are greeted by the friendliest staff. They make you feel special, and they can't do enough to accomodate you!\r
I recently lost my dad and for the past 3 years caring for him, I didn't take good care of me, especially my hair. I had the pleasure of meeting Veka and she recommended that I come in and pamper myself a bit. I'm so happy I did!! I feel like a new woman. Veka, Master Colorist has to be the best colorist I ever had! She is so talented at choosing color that fits your skin tone. I put all the decisions in her hands. My color is beautiful, and my new hair cut! There are no words to describe..... I literally walked out of the salon and was stopped on the street by two girls to ask where I got my hair done. I gave them Vekas card, I wish I had more to distribute! I will definitely be going back, and I highly recommed everyone go the new beautiful 1 St Ave Salon on First Street. An experience like no other! Thank you again Veka! \r

I am a pretty particular person when it come to my hair. Today, all I wanted was my hair trimmed and highlighted, but keep the length, since I am growing out my hair. The highlights were really to just blend the color at the end of my hair to the new-grown hair(my hair lightens very quickly, and it only needed to be a slight highlight). My biggest concern was having "striped" highlights and the risk of having too much cut off. Veka did my hair and was not only very skillfull, but also he made it a relaxing and enjoyable experience--as it should be!She made beautiful "caramel and gold" highlights, snipped here and there and voila!! Beauteous! She is very efficient, polite, and knew exactly what I wanted despite my nervous and reluctant behavior. She styled my hair in a sexy straight coiffure. She did not pressure me into buying any products or trying anything new. The salon had a lot of natural light, relaxing music, and a creative atmosphere. They offered me a drink upon entering and they had magazines to read while waiting. I am new to the area, and thanks to the reviews I read, I found this salon and a new hair home! Thank you,

I used to see Veka at a previous salon and was so happy to find her again when I returned to Arcadia! She gave me what feels like rock star hair. After I left a woman on the street complimented my hair, and a girl at Sephora asked who did my hair. My hair normally does not illicit such responses! Veka really listened to what I wanted and gave me back the blonde I had when I was a kid! Veka finished it off with a beautiful hair cut and an amazing blow out.\r
The space is bright and beautiful, and the front desk is friendly and inviting. I can not say enough positive things about this place. \r

I had so many bad haircuts in my life, never I had a stylist who look at my face, body shape and even considered my life style before recommending a hair style just for me! I felt like a VIP from the minute I walked in, the shampoo and services are top quality. Not to mention the great haircut that was tailored just for me! I had so many compliments from all my friends and family... This is my salon for life! \r

VEKA gave me a consultation on hair extensions we went over all the different possibilities. Hair types, colors, length and styling. Amazing simply Amazing. Veka gave me volume the right hair texture the perfect length and the best cut I have had in years .The layers were flawless the end result spectacular. I don't know but I doubt there is anyone that can top her. VEKAS Salon rocks. \r
When I arrived I had a five minute wait, and in that time the most professional hairdresser I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with greeted me. While she was finishing up her client before me, she kept asking how I was and if I needed anything. She made the environment very comfortable to be in and I was very pleased.\r
Here is the reason I was so happy with VEKA. I have to admit I was never a fan of highlights because I felt they looked fake and streaky. But VEKA told me about her own technique that he uses which is to go within the hairline and the shape of your head to create a more sun-kissed look, rather than streaky lines. After her great customer service I trusted her to make my hair look great. I LOVED the outcome. \r

I have hot curly hair now!! After 25 years of stick straight hair and nights of attempted curls going flat within a half hour, I finally got the perfect ""body wave"" perm I was looking for. Veka was great - and listened when I said I wanted loose curls that looked natural. I was worried about how it would turn out, but it looks great - my boyfriend can't get over how much he likes it (and I can't get over how little time it takes me to get ready! I am a wash-and-go girl now!)\r
I have also been going for my haircuts and she always does a great job! Not only does she give me the style I ask for, she makes my hair look its best! Thanks to Veka @1st ave salon for making me look MY best!\r

THE BEST CUT AND COLOR I EVER GOT!!!!!\r
I can't rave enough about my experience at 1St Ave Salon \r
First of all, the minute you walk in, you are greeted by the friendliest staff. They make you feel special, and they can't do enough to accomodate you!\r
I recently lost my dad and for the past 3 years caring for him, I didn't take good care of me, especially my hair. I had the pleasure of meeting Veka and s he recommended that I come in and pamper myself a bit. I'm so happy I did!! I feel like a new woman. Veka, Master Colorist has to be the best colorist I ever had! She is so talented at choosing color that fits your skin tone. I put all the decisions in her hands. My color is beautiful, and my new hair cut! There are no words to describe..... I literally walked out of the salon and was stopped on the street by two girls to ask where I got my hair done. I gave them Vekas card, I wish I had more to distribute! I will definitely be going back, and I highly recommed everyone go to the beautiful 1 St Ave Salon on First Street. An experience like no other! Thank you again Veka! \r

I went and got Hair Extensions in 1st ave Salon for the second time yesterday. veka did a great job the first time and the second time. The experience was great. She is a good professional, business woman and very nice lady. This is my second visit. I drive an hour and a half each way because she is the best. Before getting my hair extensions done I asked a lot of questions and she answered them all very pleasantly. My big concern was if this was really a protective style and will it help my real hair get into better condition. When I took my first hair extensions out, my real hair was definitely in better condition. There was absolutely no breakage, thin, sparse spots were completely filled in, my natural hair was thicker then ever and I had half an inch of new growth, which is great, since human hair naturally only grows about half an inch monthly. The hair Extensions were very easy to remove and I kept them in for about 6 weeks. During that time I took care of them, wrapped them up at night with a silk sleep cap and kept my scalp clean using a spray shampoo method, moisturized and conditioned in between the parts. I had a month of worry-free beautiful hair. Just shake and go in the morning. I work in the legal professional and this style looked professional, neat, natural and sexy for evenings and weekends. I am so glad I found veka at 1st ave Salon.
