I'm the original Nervous Nellie when it comes to getting my hair cut by a new stylist and I've cried many tears over a bad cut. So you can imagine I wasn't the easiest client to be sitting in her chair. Jen did a fantastic job of putting me at ease, talked over what I wanted and delivered a perfect cut. I really couldn't be more pleased!

Pros: Spent time talking about what I wanted

I actually brought a picture of what I wanted. Torri accepted this input graciously, and made me look good. She is a great stylist. Thanks.

I had a great experience because of my stylist, Stacy South. She brought a great energy to the place, and I loved my hair cut and color. She made great suggestions and I trusted her, and, in the end, I was very happy I did. Usually I'm hesitant to try new things.\r
\r
I could tell she's been doing it awhile. I found her on facebook bc I had a hair question, and she answered it thoroughly. Thanks Stacy.\r

I think the salon maybe could use some renovations, but I liked the location.

I have been going to The Cut Salon for a few years now, after having read great reviews on Citysearch. I have never received so many compliments on my hair (on both color & style) as after I started going there, and I can honestly say that this is the best color & cut I have ever had - thanks to Sarah, she's the best!! I wouldn't go anywhere else now (and I've tried very expensive salons in the past, and was often very dissatisfied and disappointed). The prices here are very reasonable, service is great and atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed, not to mention the skills of the stylists! I very, very highly recommend it.

I have been going to The Cut for many years and have always felt welcome and well taken care of. From the moment I walk in, I am warmly greeted by Ashley and everyone else I know there. They are all well organized and efficient but create a comfortable and fun atmosphere. I would never even think of going anywhere else. And by the way, Donna rocks!

You know how great it feels when you enter a sushi restaurant and the chef and the waiters greet you with enthusiasm? Well, walking into the Cut Salon is taking a 180 opposite that experience, and into a mausoleum. I have gone to Sarah at the Cut for almost five years, and it is with utter disappointment that I write this negative review. In the past year, I feel like she has just been going through the motions, and that she couldn't care less for me as her devoted client. No one else, including the owner, has given me a sense of professional welcome. The straw that broke my camel's back, landed during my last visit. I got there on time for my appointment and sat a few feet from Sarah's station. Although she and the receptionist, Ashley, saw me come in, I was ignored for 20 minutes till I said something to Ashley, and was told that Sarah was half way through with her client. It didn't occur to Sarah or Ashley to let me know that things were running late; and to apologize and ask to see if I wanted tea or something. I felt so disregarded that I finally made an excuse and left. I never heard from Sarah, and a week later went to Sit Still, instead. What a world of difference. Yes, there can be life while hair gets cut, and yes, stylists should and do care about their clients and check in with them if they are running late. Tommy at Sit Still did. Besides the cut and high light he gave me looks fantastic and shows that he puts love in his work. Change is good . . .

Pros: reasonanle prices, people are nice, parking is free and easy

Cons: the receptionist acts like it's forbidden to speak to the hairstylist when you've called or ask her to call you back

.

Donna has been cutting my boys' hair since they were babies and always makes them look handsome. The Cut is a really nice, low-key place in our neighborhood where everyone knows us and appointments are easy to get. It's a great value for the money, too.

Pros: Friendly, local, unassuming, unpretentious, good value

Cons: Not particularly luxurious

I have quite difficult hair to work with: frizzy and fine, but also very thick. Kyong styled my hair beautifully, so that now it is quite easy to make it look good. The salon is low-key, not like the frantically trendy places which have infected the Westside. The service is personal. There is a parking lot. There is nothing at all bad about this salon, and I recommend it, definitely planning to return. This was my first visit.

Jean C. is awesome! I have very fine hair and she was able to work miracles with it. As a life-long Los Angelino, I have tried many different salons in the area -- comparatively speaking, The Cut's pricing is very competitive for the quality of service you get. In addition to a fabulous cut that completely revived my thin and overworked hair, I got the BEST highlights I have ever had. I have dark brown hair, and Jean managed to give me a textured look with warm caramel and beige-y strips. She was able to lighten my hair without turning it white or yellow/brassy. I left the salon with a very polished and sophisticated cut and this was no small feat considering the state of my hair when I walked in! The atmosphere at the salon is also very chill and unpretentious. There is plenty of free and available parking in the rear so you don't have to stress out or leave the house two hours early to make your appointment. Finally, Jean took the time to listen to me and I felt totally comfortable telling her what sort of style and cut I wanted. She is also super intuitive and gave me some great suggestions for both my cut and color. She is excellent at her craft and I will definitely keep going back to her!!! : )

I had the pleasure of having Lindsey cut my hair today. She was awesome. I had had a very, very bad haircut from another salon that took over two months to grow out. I was pretty nervous to get another haircut, but I had read all these great reviews about this place. Lindsey ended up giving me a corrective haircut that was exactly what I had in mind. She listened, was attentive, and friendly. She gave me great suggestions of what to use on my hair given its texture and length. Thank you Lindsey for a wonderful cut!! You're great! :)

The salon appears unassuming with its minimalistic decoration and lack of superfluous furniture, but these hair stylists, I believe, are some of the best in the business! I love how my highlights and haircut has turned out each time I've gone. They work with you to make you're getting exactly the style you're looking for. The price was on par with other salons I?ve frequented. Still, remember to ask for the discount if you?re a first-time customer.

Am always wary of anonymous internet reviews, especially ones that contain contradicting views. The Cut has been around for a long time and is staffed by pros, offers pretty good music from XM Radio, and is run efficiently by Mary, Ashley and Alisa. I know a guy who can afford to go anywhere and comes here from MDR. I like to shop local so i walk by there almost everyday. Was with Donna years ago and found Staci one time last year and am with her now. She even volunteered to help with a theatre project! I have plenty of good hair days now. Recommend, great value, easy tempo, usually steady but never over-amped. Funky neighborhood.

I have never been to a more horrible salon in my life. The moms owner is pushy and rude!! and to top it off always has her thong hanging out of her jeans!!! Yuck. not a sight for relaxing and pampering. The manager Alyssa is a scam and the receptionist has no idea what she's doing. There is no organization and to be honest for the cheap prices no wonder. i might as well have gone to super cuts. there are about three stylist there that are good enough to work in a salon that offers them something more.... I will never go there and will continue to spread the word and recommend that others never think about EVER going there and wasting money!!

Fun hair salon. They offer cuts and color. It's helpful to make appointments, but walk-in's are always welcomed. They have a good selection of hair care products to keep your hair looking good. The staff is very nice, but I always look for Donna. She's a popular stylist who's been there for awhile and knows many of the neighborhood clients. They do have some parking in back, but there is usually space available in front.

I have just returned from my first visit to The Cut salon and have never been more delighted with my results. After careful consultation with various colour charts, Jean, hailing from Dublin Ireland went to work. I have a tendency to put my complete faith and trust in stylists' judgment- isnt that what we pay them for? Today, for once, I was moe than glad I did. Jean will give you the God's honest truth- noting that my previous highlighting treatment had left my dark brown hair, in a word...'orange.' She was able to tell, right off the bat that my highlights had never been 'toned' after the initial colouring/bleaching and was sure to rectify that error this time round. As someone with extremely curly hair, one of my pet peeves is stylists' underestimating the shrinkage factor that comes into play once my hair dries- often leaving my hair an inch or two too short. Jean made sure to diffuse-dry my hair BEFORE cutting it- arguably more challenging with curly hair but it meant I walked out with a style, color and lenght that I was delighted with.\r
\r
A chilled out, casual vibe envelopes this salon and the friendly staff make it a pleasure to while away an hour (or three) when those dead-ends call for it. If you can, ask for Jean- a very talented stylist who will give you the honest opinions and advice you need when it's time to make a change. And she's great craic to boot!!

Over a year ago, I went to the Cut Salon, because I was new to the area, saw the reviews on Citysearch, and needed a reasonably priced haircut. Needless to say, I went with little expectation. Much to my delight, I met a very talented stylist--Jean (aka ""the Irish one)-- whom I have since become a loyal fan and client. She has given me great cuts and highlights in the year plus that I have been going to her (and I am often asked where I get my haircut). When I want any type of change, I ask Jean's advice, and she has given me her professional opinion about what looks good and what doesn't. I have complete faith in her talent, and think she is hilarious as well--something a Chicagoean can appreciate. \r
\r
As for the salon, it is less pretentious than the other salons of Santa Monica. I have spent a lot more at other places and have been a lot less satisfied. From my perspective, excellent value and talent.

My first visit here was better than average. Jean was my stylist and she was very friendly and skilled. She listened to what I wanted and gave me what I asked for. Highly recommended. Only critique I have of the salon was that the receptionist didn't offer or give me the discount they advertise for first time customers.

I can?t say enough positive things about the Cut Salon. I get my hair cut about once every six weeks. I have been happy with the results each visit and and the atmosphere and the culture inviting and friendly. There is easy parking in the back and I have never had a problem getting an appointment that fits into my schedule. The girls that work there are friendly, outgoing and interesting. I take my children often just to say hi because of the relationship they have developed with everyone there. I would highly recommend it(and I have) to my friends and co-workers.

I don't usually write reviews but felt that The Cut Salon deserved it! Alyssa cut my hair and did an absolutely fabulous job. We sat and spoke about what I was looking for and how she would do it and all the pieces just fell together. She did exactly what she said and luckily I went on a week day during the day because I was in and out of there in 40 minutes with an amazing hair cut and she straightened my hair faster than anyone around!

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the cut salon for the first time and will have to say the over all experience was quite nice. Ashley, receptionist/shampoo girl was friendly, charming and gives a great head massage. My stylist, Alyssa and I consulted for quite a long time and together we came up with a color and style that would be right for me. I am happy to report, this is the best my hair has looked in years and the price was not bad either. Thanks ladies, you will see me again.

I live in the neighborhood and have passed this salon many times. After researching it here, I decided to try it out. I tried to request several stylist mentioned in the good reviews and was surprised that it seems, that these people do not exist. I finally got one and well it all comes down to this ""you get what you pay for"". Judging by the quality of service and appearance, i would say this is a chain salon, but slightly higher in pricing. The cut was okay being that i only needed a trim, but no style in the end result. This place was not my cup of tea.

I just moved to Santa Monica form Brooklyn about two months ago. And I have had some bad experiences with some of the other local salons. So, I decided to come here to City Search, and The Cut had the best reviews, so I gave it a shot. Man, was I impressed. I got my hair cut by Alyssa, and not only was she really cute, but she was asble to understand exactly how I wanted my hair cut, something which my previous stylist's had found very difficult. I am very satisfied with my hair cut. The atmosphere is very clean and modern, and it seems like everyone who works there is really enjoying themselves. On top of all that I got 5 dollars off a price that was already 10 dollars less expensive than my last hair cut. I definitely recommend this salon to everyone. I am definitely a loyal customer.

I recently was referred to The Cut through a college friend, and I wont be returning. My stylist was completely lacking experience (Ill try and be decent in not saying her name) and personality. I did not feel comfortable from her or the atmosphere. Being that it is my first time, I would have expected a little bit of a consultation , but instead I felt I was very rushed throught the experience. Maybe some people like this treatment from a stylist, but I certainly dont.

Being that it is my first time, I would have expected a little bit of a consultation , but instead I felt I was very rushed throught the experience. Maybe some people like this treatment from a stylist, but I certainly dont.

Pros: parking--being the only one

.

If it wasn't for my stylist, I wouldn't have thought of patronizing the business. Granted..the proximity and parking is convenient as is the coffee joint & pizza parlor next door (both are soon to be evicted, I believe, due to gentrification of building!). I must say tho, the atmosphere of minimalist lite-industrial is taken a bit too far and the need for a fresh coat of paint does not lend itself to a clean & comfortable place. The Staff is affable & it's always great to see everyone albeit not in a beat up cramped warehouse. I'll keep showing up cuz it's for The Cut!

Dont believe the hype. I read it was a good salon for men's cuts, but i think they must be writing the reviews themselves. I got in on a saturday last minute, and i realize it was last minute, but if they didnt have the time, well they should have turned me down. I was in and out in 15 mins. Basically i got a cheapy cut for twice the price.

I recommend the Cut Salon to any guy who is looking for a place where the stylist listens to you and adds the highest level of skill in a great haircut.. On Superbowl Sunday, I needed a haircut the day before my first day at work. I walked into the salon to find they had a full schedule until closing. Within minutes of walking in I was able to schedule an appointment for the next day... and with the help of Christina the Booking Agent, I was able to get a last minute appointment with Jeanie within an hour of closing time during the game. (Working as a team they saved me from the first impression of needing a haircut on my first day of work.)\r
\r
An Excellent Cut to my specifications, and Jeanie has the talent to know what to do to make a great haircut -far above that avereage new haircut when you move to a new city. The price was $10 less than a salon I checked earlier in the day- very reasonable for the area, plus Christina was nice and extremely polite, she made sure I received a $5 discount for finding the salon on Citysearch. \r
\r
Jeanie has a very high attention to detail, I feel like she earned a well deserved tip. I would recommend her and the salon to any guy needing a professional hair cut for an important appointment like your first day at work. I recommend calling The Cut Salon for an appointment and asking for Jeanie.

I found The Cut on Citysearch and went in on a whim. Jeanie is an excellent stylist. She talked to me for a good length of time about what I wanted my hair to look like before jumping into the cut, making me feel comfortable and confident that she knew what I wanted. She did a precise job replicating a picture I brought in of the cut I wanted to get, and honestly talked to me about modifying the cut to fit my fine hair- a refreshing and appreciated experience. The staff was kind and competant, modern and professional.

As everyone has mentioned this place is great. As I'm from asia, my curly hair gets frizzy extra fast so when I arrived in LA it wasn't in its best shape. I booked an appointment with Sarah after reading reviews online about how good she was with curly hair. So I got there & realised how simple the deco was which surprisingly was really quite nice. It seemed very unpretentious & clean. Generally, the atmosphere is very relaxed and easy going which i loved. Anyway I told sarah my problem and she listened intently. The haircut was great and she kept the length which can be a huge problem with curly haired girls. She got so excited by how curly it was and was extremely enthusiastic which amused me. Furthermore, she was alot of fun to chat with. It didnt take too long and the price was very reasonable. My highlights were awesome as well. It lightened the mass of curls without making the colour look too fake. \r
\r
Conclusion : Fantastic!

I first sent my husband to The Cut after his long-time stylist moved on. He liked it so much, I decided to give it a try. First time, I loved it - Alyssa gave me great natural highlights and a great cut for my long hair. A month ago, I decided to donate my hair. I went back to Alyssa and was, frankly, a mess. She was great, understanding, and cut off my 8 inches without freaking me out more than I already was! She gave me such a cute style and new color for the new cut. I have never been happier with my hair. Highly Reccommended!!!!!

Roberta Westcott is the best hairstylist in LA. She is great at cutting hair and styling it, as well as always a fun person to hang out with. All of the girls at the cut salon make you feel welcome and do a great job cutting your hair to look good. You have to check out the Cut.

Whew! Moved to LA and hair was dying after 5months on the road; they booked me in straight away and cured my hair of it's split ends, worn-out colour, and did the job! Totally accommodating, properly listened to what I wanted and needed, did not try to push products on me and generally a happy, relaxed place to be! Thank YOU!

I heard about The Cut through a friend. I called and they were able to book me an appointment time. Went in, and although I expected to wait, I didn't expect to wait as long as I did. I understand that appointment times are not exact. Afterall, the stylist isn't really able to cut someone's hair in exactly 30 minutes and what not,... but I was in for a surprise. I waited an hour and a half! I felt like the stylist really rushed through my cut and color, which isn't fair to me. The color job was average, and maybe a little splotchy. My cut was really a trim. I don't know if I would go back or not because the people there were nice, and I'd like to give her the benefit of the doubt. Luckily, I didn't do anything too dramatic to my hair.

Since moving here from NY, I've been searching for a new hairstylist, trying a new one each time because I was getting such crummy, expensive haircuts. Well, the search is over! Roberta's cut my hair twice, I love her because she totally knows how to thin out my pouffy, curly hair (plus she's a nice person). The best price in town, too!

I was frantic! I am leaving to Europe and my regular stylist over booked herself. My hair was a mess and i didnt like what i saw in the mirror. I read several reviews and was hesitant at first, but after reading quite a few good reviews about Christina i decided it couldnt be worse then what i had. Well, i was right. I not only am satisfied with my color, i really liked her attitude and helpfulness. I think the relationship with my old stylist has finally come to an end :) I am sticking with Christina. Although i could agree with the other reviews as far as the atmosphere is concern, but really its the stylist that matters most to me.

Whoever wrote the bad review was clearly having a bad day. The Cut is a fantastic place. Not only do the stylists give great haircuts, but the salon is bright and sunny, with nice art on the walls. They offer coffee and internet access while you wait and there's ample parking in the back. Also a great pizza shop next door. I used to go to Fantastic Sam's or Super Cuts, but for a few more dollars, I now get an awesome haircut in a great environment from the radiant Alyssa, who is not only a professional, but patient and cheerful as well.

I went here because I believed the hype that I read and decided to give this place a chance. I have previously gone only to the best salons because I am so picky about my hair. Up to this point I have never had a bad haircut, I guess I have been lucky. When the girl started cutting my hair I could tell that she didn't know what she was doing, but to cut my hair is an easy, basic haircut that any stylist worth her salt should know. Well not so with this woman. I don't know where she learned to cut hair, but nothing matches, all the layers are uneven, the length is uneven, one side is totally different than the other. She chopped so much off, way more than I told her, that I can't even have it fixed until it grows more. I have been very depressed about it, as hair is so important to a woman. Then, before she was even finished with this monstrous haircut, she said ""my next client is here"" and stopped right in the middle, without even finishing my hair! There is just no excuse for this kind of service. I will never go to this salon again. I can't really speak for all the women here, I just know what happend to me with mine. I wouldn't trust them with my hair again if they paid me.

I've been Alyssa's client for over two years. She makes me look like the natural blonde I used to be, but even better, and my hair has never looked healthier!

This is the absolute worst business I have ever seen. They charge way too much for their level of experience and fail to tell clients that a cut does not include a dry nor styling. Both times I went I left with a wet head, a mangled haircut and jangled nerves because of their rudeness. This place is far worse than Supecuts or Fantastic Sam's. The positive reviews can't be for real as there really is not much positive to say about this place.

I went here after reading the rave reviews on citysearch. I managed to sneak in for a late appointment, which my stylist stayed after to do. The salon is great, and just going to get my hair cut was fun. I LOVE this place, and will return for my next trim. If you go, ask for Alyssa.

No consultation! Which is scary! You enter the salon, get a limp handshake and as you are guided to the wash station. As you are leaning back the question is asked ""How you want your hair?"" And thats the extent of the consultation. My hair is very easy to cut and style so the cut came out alright but I don't think I'll return. It felt like Fantastic Sam's or Supercuts, but the price was not similar. I paid $50 for a haircut. I went here because the prices seemed reasonable, but it isn't a fair price for what you get.
