I cannot say enough great things about Sarah Hammel as far as a colorist. She truly is so talented with an eye for perfection. My hair has never looked better! I have very longthinck hair and am very picky! She knows what she is doing and it shows. I get endless compliments. I have my mother come to her from the midwest, and I am even having my girlfriend from Australia get her hair done with Sarah when she flies into town next month!

As far as styling, Caile is amazing. He truly knows how to cut hair for it to grow. He has amazing style himself and listens to his clients and what they want. I have never been unhappy leaving the salon after a cut or style. And he is a master blow dryer! I have Caile style me any time I have a big event or weekend planned. My hair always looks amazing after leaving the salon and days later! With Sarah and Caile as my colorist and stylist, I feel that I have the BEST team possible and highly recommend them to anyone!

I've never received more compliments on my hair than i do after David John ("DJ") started cutting/highlighting my hair.

I went to several pricey salons in LA before I was introduced to DJ 3 years ago and have never looked back. His cuts grow out really well and are easy to maintain. The color is subtle and very natural looking (a MUST for me). He'll challenge you to try new things but always listens to what you want. He's also just FUN. You walk out looking and feeling like a million bucks! Sure it's not cheap but I think it's truly value for the money. The adage you get what you pay for is certainly true here. DJ IS WORTH EVERY CENT. The fact that everyone I've sent to him sticks with him - in a town filled with stylists! - is very telling. If you want your hair to look better than ever, run do not walk to see David John!

An additional bonus: have Janice do your makeup and brows while you are there. You won't regret it.

If you are looking for an exceptional haircut and color experience...DJ is your man. In my opinion, trying to find someone to give you perfect blond highlights is essentially close to impossible. I have never received more compliments about my hair since starting to see DJ 5 years ago...and many times people are shocked to know that I have highlights because they are so beautiful and natural. A few years ago i moved from LA to San Francisco and after attempting to find a great hair experience and not being satisfied...I now fly down to see DJ on a regular basis and it is well worth it. I love DJ and you will too!

If you really want to get what you envisioned go to Rachel Carney!!! I've been dying to do the ombre dye and she did it better then I could have ever wanted!!! I love, love it AND I love, love HER. She is so amazing at just knowing what will look good on you.

Great atmosphere-They have a pool!!

She is the best- times infinity!!!

If you want an amazing cut or extensions go there for Tyron, he is truly great.

Pros: Tyron for a great cut.

I have always had stylist who were really nice but inevatably would at some point decide to get creative and DECIDE how long my hair should be or how many layers I should have! Now I have thick hair and its hard to maintain on my own.. so when they get artsy I'm basically screwed.. Until I met Olivier. He has been my stylist since that day 3 years ago and I swear Paris gave me the best gift by sending him over! First of all he cured my semi-mullet fancy look my old stylist (from an amazing upscale beverly hills salon) had given me and has since kept my hair healthy and MANAGABLE! Put it this way I get out of the pool dry out in fresh air and people still ask about my hair cut!! He is simply amazing! and he sooo does not get scissor happy thank god!! I sent my friend over who has broken super thin hair and now her hair is growing and fabulous too:) did i mention he gives complimentary little bang trims in between cuz he is money conscious about MY budget??!! love him!! Oh and ps I know he has Oscar award winning actresses as clients:) but my lips are sealed as who!! :)

I see Caile Noble at John Frieda and I have to tell you that he is one of the most amazing stylists. It is by far the best haircut i have ever had, even when it grows out it is still in perfect shape. I also love just going for a blow out... You walk out of the salon feeling great and ready to go to your event. The salon has great staff, wonderful service and not to mention how beautiful it is. I love the Shu Uemura Shampoo and the John Frieda Lavish Lift Root Boost!!!!! If you want a great haircut and blow dry see Caile you will be very happy!!

I came to Rachel on a recommendation from one of my girlfriends after my hair was destroyed at another salon. She spent a lot of time listening to my horror story and explaining what she had to do to fix it, which I appreciated because I was nervous about the whole thing. When she was done with my hair it looked better then I ever imagined it could! It's been over a month and I'm still getting compliments.

Having had great past experiences at the Frieda salon in NYC, I made an appointment with Abby and Whitney to correct a poor color job (not done by any Frieda salon) and have my hair cut. I don't usually write reviews but these women and the entire staff are top notch. The salon has a great ambiance; wall-to-wall sliding glass doors surround the picturesque center pool. The youthful and gorgeous staff is talented and friendly. I did not come in with pictures or detailed instructions but my desires were listened to and I am another thrilled client. Thank you, thank you!

David John, formerly of Fred Segal Beauty in Santa Monica, has recently moved to the Serge Normant @ John Frieda salon. I've been a client of his for 12 years - an eternity for someone as obsessed with hair as I am - and he is an absolute genius as both a colorist and stylist. My sister travels from San Diego to have him do her hair, my mother travels from the San Fernando Valley and my sister-in-law comes from Westlake Village. People stop us all on the street to remark on the beauty of our hair. And he is a darling; someone I'm thrilled to call my friend. RUN, don't walk, to Melrose Place to have him do your hair. You won't be disappointed.

"i won't go to anyone but david john. he's a master for cut and color, and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. that's why i followed him from fred segal to john frieda. i would follow him anywhere, truly. i'd follow him to a van down by the river if that's where he was doing hair. he's THAT good. luckily, he recently went to the john frieda salon. the most beautiful place. tranquil, serene, friendly. it's very uber-chic LA with celebrities and models, and very stylish folks, BUT shockingly everyone is so nice! i could spend an entire weekend there if they let me. when i explain a cut or color to david, it's like he's a mind reader. he always knows exactly what i'm after and miraculously delivers. i'm constantly changing my hair, so this is no small feat. i truly believe he is an artist--and his chair is seriously my happy place. he's the best. i wouldn't let anyone else touch my hair."

Just had my haircut with Whitney and it was a wonderful experience. The haircut was everything that I asked for and more. Whitney didn't rush when another client came in. Instead she let another stylist handle the other client. She gave me a great haircut without me having to bring in a picture. I definitely recommend this salon. I had also tried Tyron and he was fantastic too. They are very well skilled. The only place in L.A. that's below $200 but worth it.

I have had extensions for 6 years now. I have found that Great Lengths is the best system for me. I want the best hair and feel of attachments i can get. I was recommended highly to see Louise Moon at the John Frieda Salon as she has done many celebrities hair extensions and has an incredible eye for color and what is needed for the end result. I have a very sensitive scalp and she is the only one i found who is GENTLE!!! I also found out that she is also a freelance stylist who also does print work in the celebrity and fashion business.So i got not only fantastic extensions but also a creative look that suited me. She is a fantastic haircutter (which is were the magic comes in) I can't tell you how many times my extensions were ruined because i got a lousy haircut from someone who does not know how to cut extensions even though they say they do!!! I can't tell you how important that is.. there is a difference.. anyways, for someone who has done as much as she has,she is very grounded and warm and she will make you feel like one of her celebrities.

p.s. She is now doing the new Fast Fusion system!!! It applies 10 extensions in 13 seconds!!!! She is the only one in Los Angeles doing it. That means 2 hours!!!!!

I figured I should write a reveiw to describe my great experience at this salon, because I left there feeling wonderful. I felt the customer service was impeccable and my overall experience was great. I would absolutely recommend it to all my friends. In this case anyway, I got what I payed for.

When you step into a salon like John Frieda you expect nothing but the best which is what I experienced with stylist Michael St.Germain. I explained to Michael that I was bored with my hair and needed a makeover and that's exactly what I got!! I have never received so many compliments as I have with my new look. Not only is Michael St.Germain one of the best stylist I have ever seen, he's also one of the best looking ;-)

I've read both wildy enthusiastic and grumbly thumbs down on this salon, so I feel I must toss in my two cents.
I chose this salon based on the recommendation of a pal about 6 years ago...that pal always seems to know the right people, the innest professionals, but in previous visits to some of her rec's I've had varying degrees of satisfaction. I'm not super young, skinny or hip(well, the hipness factor probably outweighs the others for me, luckily-I've got at least a trace of that), and frankly I was trepidatious that I might get some less-than-cozy vibes at such a chic, celebrity-driven salon.

Not so! First, the space is gorgeous--small, but so pretty and relaxing just to hang in--and when you're getting color here, you will be waiting around, so that's a huge plus. The stylists and receptionists, elite types all, have always been unfailingly gracious, sweet, attentive and on the ball--even on those really, really bad hair days when I've been sweating and swearing at the traffic(I live in Pasadena)and look a hot mess walking in in my Lee jeans and tatty sneakers. NO snobbery at all.

That's one of two things that's kept me coming back year after year. the otherand the most important, naturally, is the high quality of the cuts and color I receive here. Every. Single. Visit. has resulted in many compliments afterwards and I leave to browse nearby Melrose and 3rd streets feeling like a millionairess. Add to that that the prices are in my opinion quite reasonable.
I do dread the drive across Hollywood to get there, but it's worth it in the end. I believe everyone they employ is superb--whichever is available is going to give you a cut or shade worth every penny. Go, be confident you'll look gorgeous--and enjoy!

Demetrius Pombo has been cutting and styling my hair for several years. He absolutely loves working with hair and this is obvious through the miraculous results. Demetrius Pombo works to create captivating haircuts and styles and his abilities are highly respected by the staff members of the salon and throughout the city of Los Angeles. He is an outgoing, creative, and talented individual. Not to mention he is also one of the top hairstylists at John Frieda Salon. Demetrius Pombo has worked with many celebrities such as Mathew McConaughey, Paris Hilton, Gisele Bundchen, Natasha Richardson, Kate Blanchet, Marta Gugino, Melissa George, Linda Evangelista, Eva Mendez and Kelsey Grammar--to name a few. The service at John Frieda was excellent! I felt right at home upon entering through the chic glass doors. I felt like I was a celebrity with the constant attention I received. He's worth every penny! If you don't believe me check out his website at www.demetriuspombo where you can see for yourself. His website even offers great tips for straight, curly and even wavy hair. I highly recommend Demetrius Pombo. You won't regret the drive your hair will thank you for it.

It was my first time to get a cut in this salon, and my LAST! The receptionist was very rude. After the stylist asked my what kind of style I wanted, he was approached by his assistant that he needed to take care of his client who just came late to the salon. He made me wait for at least 15 minutes after I was being seated while he was working on his late client's hair. I know I should have say something at the time. After he's done with his late client, he proceed doing my hair. I had showed him a style that I wanted in a book, but I don't think he knew how to cut it. When he told me he was done cutting my hair, I was very surprised because I didn't feel I had a haircut at all! I was very disappointed and I would never go back there again! I think the person who cut my hair doesn't work there anymore. You don't have to pay a lot of money to get a good cut. Just because an old client walk in to the salon, that doesn't mean he need to take her first before the new client. Overall the salon has a really bad service!

Thank-you for your input, anonymous though you are at this point, all comments are appreciated.
I appologise that you feel your experience with us was not a pleasant one. We are a salon with a large celebrity clientelle, but our goal is that everybody that leaves here feels like one.
I wish i had slightest idea who you are, since you must have been in the salon recently i would love the opportunity to rectify any problems or even reinburse you. I would have thought that judging by the anger in your scathing report about me and the salon, that i would have had an inclination to your dislike of my work when you were in my chair, or at least some comment to management about your dissapproval when paying and tipping for services.
Please feel free to contact me at the salon 323 653 4040 or leave a message with the front desk girls.
Oh yes, regarding the front desk;
I would really appreciate your input about our girls there, since our aim is to please i would love to hear what your issues might be, so as to address them and have any necessary changes made. THANKS

This is a terrific salon, but despite what others have said here and other places online, I had a TERRIBLE experience with Matthew Shields. He did not listen one bit to what I wanted for my hair (which was to grow the layers OUT) and put in tons of new, choppy layering (some pieces as short as 4" at the crown of my head!). Only go to him if you want to spend $$$ getting a choppy, dated cut - HE CAN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE!!! I found him to be rude and dismissive. For what he charges he should listen to his client, even if she's not a movie star! This salon is typical of "celebrity" haunts. UNLESS YOU ARE A CELEBRITY, THEY DON'T GIVE A @#$&% ABOUT PLEASING YOU. (P.S. the guy who did my color was fantastic, but he left the salon and went somewhere else!)

i went there a few weeks a go to get my haircut by demetrius pombo, when he told me that he was leaving to go and work with sally hershberger on her new salon, i dont know whats is going to happen with john frieda, demetrius is the best hairstylist in town...
it is very sad...they are putting on the floor their assistents wich are not even ready to cut our hair or even style our hair...not even talking about color...

what happened with that salon...

.

I had a corrective color done by Johnathan Gale. Not only did it turn out amazing, but he was so attentive, even though I was a first-time client. I found the service here to be the best I've received in LA salons. Everyone from the receptionist to the assistant looked after me from the minute I made my appointment and were polite and friendly. If you can afford it, I highly reccomend this salon.

I had a wonderful cut here and can't wait until the next time I am in LA. Tyron does an excellent job with curly hair! I'll be back in May!

For a truly great haircut, go see Matthew Shields, the transplanted Brit at Sally H. Expensive, but so worth it! For the greatest colorist on the planet, it's gotta be Negin, who can transform a disaster into hair nirvana, any color possible. Yes, it's snooty and self important in there, and SO very affected, but ignore it and go for the skills of these people. Individually, all staff members are super nice, it's just that the collective vibe gets so ridiculously chic and overdone. Dress warmly, it can get cold in there with all the glass and the reflecting pool.
