I 'm happy to announce the best hair stylist can be found at the Londoner. I walked in one Sunday and Michael was there to greet me. I briefly explained to him my concern with my gray hair, more on the temple and crown area. He gave me a couple of suggestions and I was immediately in love with him. Michael is amazing, professional and a good listener.. So ladies, if you got gray hair issues like I do, then I've got a solution for you. He's name is Michael Nguyen and he's all you need. I love you Michael, Thank you for giving me confidence again!
This salon is nothing short of inspiring and that's because of its talented team. No matter what chaos I bring for Jerry Madrid to sort out, he deploys all of his genius and skills to exult a common waif like me into a beautiful and confident woman. From his creative coloring innovations to his hair-cutting mastery, Jerry simply intuitively knows how to tailor the right styling solution.
I have often been neglectful of my hair, unrepentant about my split ends, and completely corruptible concerning my profligate hair-dyeing ways. Despite all this nonsense, Jerry heals, tends, and mends my tresses into a wondrous state. It is one thing for a hair professional to take a blank canvas and concoct a thing of beauty. It is an altogether different matter for someone to take my hair, a.k.a. ""the train wreck"", and to magically transform it into a seductive asset. That is called artistry. And if you want artistry, go to The Londoner and book an appointment with Jerry.
By the way, the entire staff is sweet and down-to-Earth, so expect to be treated kindly. Yes, this is an oasis.
After moving to Los Angeles about 6 years ago, I bounced around to many different hairstylists in search of the perfect fit. Then I found Jerry at the Londoner Salon in Manhattan Beach.
I started going to Jerry about a year and a half ago and new immediately I was in very capable hands. Jerry is very attentive, talented, has integrity, is honest and listens to what I am looking for. When I sit down in the chair we have an actual conversation about what it is I want to accomplish and how best to do that. He asks questions, gives me examples and makes sure that I am comfortable with our plan of action before he starts implementing.
Jerry also has great vision for what looks right on each person. Recently, I decided I wanted to do something a little different. I went in with all these pictures and ideas. Jerry sat down with me and told me what each option would look like on me, with my hair, color, structure etc. Together we put together a plan that I was comfortable with and I could not have been happier with the outcome!
His honesty, integrity and candidacy are very refreshing. I know that no matter what he will always give me the complete and honest truth.
The other plushe is a nice genuine person and great to chat with during my visit.
My former cut and drab natural hair color made for one unexciting, blah image. I needed a change! A friend highly recommended Michael Nguyen at The Londoner. He spent a lot of time with me initially to sort through pictures I brought with me of hairstyles and colors I liked. He pointed out pros/cons of each and what would look and work best for me. I had never colored my hair before, so I was tentative about the whole process at first. He made it easy for me to understand all the options. \r
Needless to say, after my first appointment I left with a new hairstyle and a hair color that looked fabulous. That was six months ago. I still get 1-2 compliments per week on my hair, many from total strangers! It made me look years younger. Michael is meticulous and pays attention to the details. I'm a regular now and continue to be pleased. I would highly recommend him to anyone.\r
The Londoner Salon is beautifully appointed and staffed by friendly and attentive people. You'll like it a lot, and won't be disappointed with Michael!\r
I tried out many salon's in the area and had a lot of trouble really finding a men's stylist that could deliver what I was looking for. I was extremely frusturated until I tried out Jerry---I have since been going back for over a year.\r
Jerry was extremely knowledgeable and attentive from day one. He is extremely passionate about his trade and wants to make sure I am 100% satisfied everytime I come in. Combe this with his expertise and I feel great after every haircut. If you're looking for an expert in men's hair, I would definitely recommend giving Jerry a shot. I am 100% confident you will go back and not have to worry again about finding a good stylist.
Michelle has been doing my hair for over a year now. I read a review about the salon on city search and I'm soo happy that I chose the right person to go to. I get so many compliments everywhere on how amazing my hair looks specially my color. Michelle really gets me. She does whatever I ask her to do. I change my style pretty often and she always gives me what I ask for. If you want a great hairstylist, go to Michelle. I love her.
The minute I walked into the Londoner Salon I was astonished. The decor is immaculate and no detail is left unfinished. I was greeted by Jerry, my new stylist, and we instantly had a connection. He understood exactly what hair color and cut I wanted, it was like he read my mind. I was even offered a drink while my color was processing. After I had the most relaxing shampoo in my life Jerry took his time and gave me and amazing hair cut. He made sure every strand was exactly the length it was supposed to be. I have long hair and sometimes struggle when hair stylists cut too mucj off and don't listen when I say that I want to keep it long, but he took off just the right amount. My blow out looked good even after 3 days!!! I left the salon feeling like a million bucks! I would recommend Jerry Madrid if you're looking for a good haircut, amazing color, and even better conversation!
I've always wanted a short haircut, but have been hesitant for years because my hair is very straight and thin, and my fear is that it would just be flat to my head. A few weeks ago, I just said, what the heck, and made an appointment with Jerry Madrid. From the minute I walked in the door, I was very impressed with the Londoner. After I checked in and sat down, Jerry came over and walked me to the restroom to put on a robe and directed me to his station. We discussed what type of look I wanted, and expressed my concerns about going short. He made me feel at ease, and made some great recommendations....in the end, I ended up LOVING the cut. He added a lot of texture to the back which makes my hair look very full and the cut frames my face perfectly. \r
Jerry is very detail oriented, easy to talk to, and you can tell he is very passionate about his career. The salon had a very upbeat and hip vibe, and everyone was very friendly and weloming. I will definitely make another appointment with Jerry and I highly recommend him as a Stylist and the Londoner Salon as well.
i moved to LA 3 years ago and walked into the londoner salon for a haircut and luckily Junko was available. it was love at first site! i have always used a barber b/c i thought my hair was easy to cut. what i found was that junko has given my hair a level of pristineness that i did not know was possible. my only problem is that she makes me look so good that i want to go back every 2 weeks so that i constantly look my best, which only she has been able to accomplish. thanks to junko and the entire staff, who always treat me like i own the place.\r
P.S. my favorite part is the washing, conditioning, and massage that she gives me. \r
Jerry has been my stylist for the last few years.He always listens to what I want and balances my request with what he knows will be good for my hair.
I have been to many high end super expensive salons, and Jerry has always done as good if not better than those places.You will get exactly what you want with Jerry!! Love him!
Claire gave me exactly what I wanted, when I wasn't even sure, and did so with a vague description from me. I am totally pleased with my hair and would recommend Claire to everyone I meet. She is relaxed and upbeat, listens and did what I wanted her to do. I will definitely be going back to her.
Pros: Did what I asked
I have recently moved to the area and a have been looking for a good place to get my hair cut. Finally, a friend at work told me about Jerry at the Londoner. Jerry was awesome! Being a guy, I generally dont change my hair too much, but jerry made some great suggestions and the hair cut turned out better than it has ever been before. I would definitely recommend jerry to anyone; hes friendly, energetic, and very knowledgeable. I can easily say that this was best experience I have ever had at a Salon!
Pros: Friendly, Professional, and very knowledgeable
Long over my home dye jobs and my share of bad experiences I have been on the search for my gem of a hairstylist... After reading such wonderful reviews of Londoner salon and Jerry I decided to give it a shot and booked an appt. I stepped into a very beautiful salon and felt very welcomed as soon as I walked in. There was a warm comforting feeling to the salon. Jerrys consultation w me was by far the best! He was very pro-active at asking all the right questions and sharing suggestions that were within my comfort zone and beautiful for me. Ive had my share of stylist who pretend to listen and then go about and do what they want w my hair! That is a thing of the past! I walked out w gorgeous locks and feeling great!!! I love my cut and the color is gorgeous and shiny! Jerry was true to his word and sincere and attentive. It was so incredibly refreshing to find a stylist who truly cares to make you happy and takes pride in it. It is something that is very much appreciated and respected in a professional. I found my gem!
Pros: Excellent work, excellent service!
After 30+ years of long hair (not even a trim) and on the advice of my daughter, I entrusted Joseph at the Londoner to cut and style my hair. I took his advise and my hair looks fantastic. It takes me about 15 minutes from wash to done. Thank you Joseph! In the mode, I attended the Blow Dry Bootcamp offered by Joseph and Jerry (free of charge!). The last time I used a hairdryer was to dry an article of clothing. But, both Joseph and Jerry were very patient and guided me through the process for 2 hours. Thank you guys!! I will definitely come back soon.
Pros: Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff, Reasonable Rates
Cons: No downside to this wonderful salon!
Saw a great cut on a friend, and asked for the name of her stylist. Went right down to the Londoner Salon and had a consult with Claire, who instantly seemed to know what I had in mind. She was extremely professional and obviously know her job well. I instantly felt comfortable, and booked an appointment for the following week for the cut.
I LOVE MY NEW HAIRCUT! It is so exactly what I had in mind, and I have become a compliment magnet around my friends. Even strangers now approach me and say, ""cute haircut."" I can't wait to have her do my color and highlights. It is so great to find a stylist who really cares about her clients wishes and performs her job with real artistry. I recommend Claie Benson wholeheartedly! You will be thrilled, trust me.
Pros: Friendly staff, great ambience
After having tried out several hair saolons in the south bay area, my friend recommended the Londoner (and stylist Jerry). So I gave it a shot, since I was not too happy with my previous experiences at other salons... I can finally say that my search for a permanent hair salon has ended. This place is amazing. \r
Jerry is experienced and clearly knows what he's talking about! He recommended a style that goes well with my skin/eye color, face, etc. and gave my some easy styling tips. Finally someone who is not afraid to suggest what would look good. I am very happy with how my hair turned out and will definitely go back!
Pros: Professionalism, great consultation
I have to say - The Londoner is the best hair salon I have ever attended. My stylist - Michelle C - is truly one of the best in the business. \r
Ladies - if you're looking for a stylist who is skilled, makes amazing hair recommendations, and does it all in a timely manner - Michelle is your lady.\r
Last Saturday I got a full color, cut and a Brazillian blowout and I couldn't be happier with the results. It's honestly the best thing I've gotten done in years. My hair feels soft, smooth, & healthy - and it's the most maneagable it's ever been in years (took me 10 mins to style this morning as opposed to 45). Best part of it all - I was at the salon for only a couple hours - Total! i still had my whole Saturday. Michelle works hard, and delivers amazing results. I will not go to anyone else or anyone else (unless she leaves...I'm going with). Hope this helps...I'm telling you - you'll be happy with the results!
Pros: Proffessional, Talented, Timely, Skilled, Personable
Cons: No Drawbacks....
I had been going to the same hairstylist for over 10 years and had decided that it was time for a change--I was in a major hair rut to the point where I couldn't do anything with my hair, my stylist wouldn't do anything that I had asked her to it , and to add to it, I was tired of schlepping to Orange County. I live in the South Bay and was looking for a salon that was close to home so I thought I would give Londoner Salon a try. I am so glad that I did. My hair stylist is Claire and she is the best! I have been going to her for a year and I love how she cuts and colors my hair. My hair is so much easier to take care of and so much more up-to-date. I love the color! My previous hair stylist had been coloring it too light and now it is a rich, dark brown. (This color is more like my natural hair color.) Claire is the best!
Pros: Great friendly staff, close to home and great prices!
Finally I found a salon that can do color! I've been travelling abroad for a few years for work and have been shocked at how hard it is to find someone that can do my hair exactly the way I want. I had my hair done at a high end salon in London and the guy fried my hair - literally. Took years for the damage to grow out. Years later I moved to Toronto and found a stylist there. After telling her what I wanted, she went ahead and did what she thought would look good - which it didn't and even if it did, it wasn't what I asked for. I recently moved back to Los Angeles and I was recommended to Claire via a friend and she totally nailed it. She not only took her time layering the colors I wanted but gave me exactly the tones and hues I was looking for. If you are picky about your highlights, I strongly recommend Claire!
Pros: excellent color
I was looking for a new salon and wanted a new 'do' but wasn't quite sure what I wanted. I thought it was time for me to make the trek to beverly hills to spend ridiculous money on my hair. But I REALLY wanted to stay local. I came to citysearch and found so many great reviews for Londoner Salon, I decided to give it a go.\r
First impressions are everything and it all started with a very pleasant receptionist who set an appt for me with Jerry the very next week. \r
Jerry was AWESOME! He took time to consult with me about my cut and color and made some great recommendations. He was sensitive to not going too radical with the color or cut as a first-time client. He was the consummate professional and actually explained step-by-step, what he was doing and why. Jerry is very personable and he knows what he is doing. It was a great experience and I'm very pleased to support a local business with good people!
Pros: excellent service, advice, professional, clean & fun
I wear my hair short, but like to keep it edgy and stylish. The first time I went to Jerry I was completely comfortable. It was obvious that he gets great joy from his work and making people happy. He REALLY listens, then gives input and suggestions. He has done my color and cut about 6 times now, and it just gets better and better, talanted, adorable, personable, and very caring! AND, right in MB.\r
Pros: found my hairstylist
I have been going to see Jerry as a regular now at Londoner for 7 months and have been very happy with my cuts and my color. I have expressed to Jerry many times of my frustrations with my wavey frizzy hair and almost spent 750 dollars at a different salon on a permanent relaxing treatment. Jerry told me of the pros and cons of such a treatment such as the fact it really has no versatility and could damage my hair due to the color and highlights, and i am so glad i took his advice on having a treatment called the Brazilian Blowout. It was half the price and is literally a wash and wear! I am so happy with my hair, i can wear it straight or curly, it has incredibly shine and feels like silk. It is nice to know there are people like Jerry who still have integrity and are not just interested in the mighty dollar,instead are looking out for me and my hair, i can sleep easy now knowing there are still a few good guys out there. Thanks Jerry!
Pros: Jerry madrid and all his knowledge
Cons: absolutely none
I have been going to the same hair stylist for over 4 yrs. but I wanted a change. I found michelle clagg on citysearch and O.M.G...she is so amazing. My hair color has never been so shiny and beautiful. I have been telling my previous stylist that my hair looked a little bit too ashy. She would agree with me but I walk out of the salon still looking ashy. I told Michelle my concern regarding the color and she agreed that the color was off. We talked about what I was looking for and Michelle made some recommendations on what she could do to get it to look just the way I wanted. It came out perfect and looks very natural! From now on, Michelle is going to be the stylist that I will be going to.
Pros: best colorist
After visiting my hometown hair colorist and stylist in Las Vegas (which yes, I used to fly back every 10 weeks and spend a small fortune) I noticed a book of the 100 best colorists in the nation. I flipped through it and came across Anthony Morrison. I thought how great! I have a great colorist in my area! Finally, after 4 months of not getting my hair done, because I had no spare time to fly back to my hometown nor a small fortune I decided to suck it up and try someone new.
I trusted the reviewers of city search and followed their advice. I called Londoner and booked with Jerry. When I arrived I was Immediately I was offered a beverage and any magazine of my choice. Jerry took me back and consulted with me about what I wanted to do. He helped me make the right decision about both cut and color. Such a cool guy, he was very focused and relaxed and extremely down to earth- unlike some beverly hills places I have been before.
The result: The color is beautiful - the best I have ever had. The cut- somehow Jerry managed to make it look longer than it did before he cut it. My hair is so healthy and amazing and I have Jerry and Londoner to thank. Also, Shannon is awesome too! SO helpful and nice.
Thank you Jerry, Shannon, and everyone who recommended this place- I can't wait to go back!
Oh and best of all- the price was wonderful! I was shocked by how inexpensive it was. I feel lucky to have found a great salon that does not overcharge!
Needless to say...I HIGHLY recommend Londoner!
I've been going to The Londoner and seeing Claire for over a year now and each experience has been wonderful! Claire does a great job handling my unruly mane and I get so many compliments after I've seen her. She does a great job with color too.
My latest trip, I got what is called ""The Brazilian Blowout"". Silly name, but I couldn't be happier. If you have frizzy hair, this treatment will definitely help. Even on humid days my hair is smoother and more manageable.
If you are looking for a high-quality, dependable stylist and a great atmosphere, look no further than Claire and The Londoner.
Pros: Friendly, Fun, nice atmosphere
I've been going to Joseph Bennett for over a year after a friend referred me to him. I would definitely recommend him...he does a great job and he makes getting a haircut fun (even for a dude!).
Pros: Friendly, funny, very good
Went to Londoner Salon for the first time based on a friend's recommendation and from seeing the reviews on here. I got Michelle Clagg 'cause she was available. I got a cut, color, and highlight and was really happy and impressed with her. She really knows what she's doing. I'll be coming back to see her again for sure and will be recommending her to my other girlfriends.
I read a lot of reviews from the Londoner Salon but I wanted to try Michelle Clagg. When I got there,the staff offered me something to drink right away. They are all so nice. I wanted natural high lights and I was impressed that Michelle gave me exactly what \r
I had in mind. If you want perfect cut and high lights, you will not be disappointed with her. By the way, she is super fast.
I went Londoner for the first time to get my eyebrows done and wowwww, Loni did such an amazing job.She was very gentle and has a very sweet personality. If your eyes brows are messed up like how mine was, go see Loni at the Londoner.
After years of spending precious weekend time driving up to BH, I was THRILLED to find Joseph Bennett at the Londoner. I've tried most of the top salons, and always had a good cut but a bad hairdry, or bad color with good hairdry, etc. etc. This is LITERALLY the first time I've been to someone where I LOVED the cut, color and hairdry all in one visit (as did my husband!)...What a concept, huh??!! And he's nice and funny to boot! Go see him, you won't be disappointed!
Pros: Best I ever had!
After many years of commuting from m.b to beverly hills to see a stylist that was sub par and very expensive, I became tierd of being passed around to assistants and colorist. it was very refreshing to find a place in my hometown,I went to the londoner after i read some reviews on citysearch i was suprised to meet jerry, not resembleing anything ive seen from my past stylists in B.H. he sat me down and conveyed the most exquisite consultation and assured me that i would love my new tresses. After he worked his magic with a new vibrant color i was amazed that this young stylist used some of the same cutting techniques my old stylist from france used. i walked out of there feeling great and assured i had found a diamond in the rough. Thanks Jerry i said i would write you a review if i was happy,see you next month!
Pros: luxury salon at half the cost,friendly staff,great results
Cons: i almost felt guilty for not spending a fortune
Being a guy, it can be intimidating walking into a luxury salon.
Jerry was the man! Took all his advice and cuts have come out great. He works flexible hours for all the guys who work till 6pm!
I reccomend him for ANYONE, especially guys looking for a bit more style then an average 'dont care' cut.
Pros: Jerry is the man! Great guy, and great stylist
Cons: All the cougars in there. KIDDING.
My hair is really thin, but the thing is, I like having long hair...not a recipe for success. Then came Claire! She gave me a cut that let me keep some length while creating an illusion of body and fullness. Amazing! And I haven't even gotten to the color yet! She gave me beautiful highlights with warm lowlights, both perfectly compliment my natural color. My hair never looked so good...my husband not only noticed, but said it looked ""really pretty""!! She also did my hair for my wedding. It was PERFECT...exactly how I had always fantasized my hair would look on my wedding day. I know I can always trust Claire to make me look my best, and I would highly recommend her!
They are so great at the Londoner. Joseph is my favorite. Not only is he a great stylist and colorist he is so fun! They treat you so well there and the price is awesome! I would recommend them to anyone.
Joseph cut my hair and he is amazing. I have worn my bangs the same way for YEARS (side swept) and Joseph said that he had the perfect haircut for me which would change my look. Well, it did! He cut short bangs straight across and I love it! I look about 10 years younger. I seriously would never have done it if I didn't trust Joseph's judgement. He rocks and you won't find a better stylist.
For years I had searched for a stylist who could bring out the best in my hair with the least amount of daily hassle - Joseph did that for me. He is an outstanding hair stylist who understands his clients' desires and capabilities, and makes the best of it. Seriously, he has cut/colored my hair in differing styles throughout the years and I have always left his salon feeling fantastic, and been happy the next day. Ditto for my kids - he is a great artist and I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone to him!
Pros: Londoner's Finest Hair Artist
I have known Joseph for a year now. He is the only one that I will go to to cut my hair. He always does a great job. I leave there in love with my hair and Joseph too.\r
I travel all the way from North Hollywood to see him. The salon is very welcoming and the staff is nice. I highly recommend!
I recently got my hair cut and colored by Joseph Bennett at this salon and absolutely loved it! My hair was a pretty big mess (both the color and the cut) when I went in. I couldn't have been happier once Joseph was done. The color was perfect and the cut was even better than I had hoped for. Joseph took the time to really listen to me regarding what I wanted and the concerns I had. He is fun, professional and gave me great hair. I also really enjoyed the salon - it was relaxing, yet professional. Although I live in San Diego, I will continue going to see Joseph at the Londoner - it is absolutely worth the drive!
Pros: The best hair cut & color I have ever had
Joseph Bennett is a savior. I came in to the Londoner with a botched haircut from a different salon. My layers were uneven and my bangs were a disaster. I thought I was beyond repair and would just have to wait for my hair to grow out. I don't know how Joseph did it but he not only made my hair right again, he made it fabulous. I was blown away! And he is such a sweetheart too. Lesson learned.... just go to Joseph in the first place. Thanks Joseph!
Pros: Professional, hip, great atmosphere
Cons: Far from where I live... But I still make the drive.
I go to Jospeh Bennett to get my hair cut, but to say its just a 'hair cut' does not do his talents justice. Joseph's attention to detail, understanding of the skills of doing hair and his amiable personality make this an experience, not just a cut!\r
Joseph understands what styles work, and has never steered me wrong. I always leave feeling like a whole new person!\r
Ask for Joseph, you will not be disppointed!
Pros: Attention to detail, friendly staff, knowledgeable
I got my hair cut at The Londoner by Joseph Bennett, and it was one of the best cuts I've had. I live in Austin, TX and was able to get in on my way to the airport. Joseph is very friendly, highly professional, and very talented. I would absolutely go back whenever I'm in LA.
Pros: Great atmosphere, great staff
After almost 3 years of going to Anthony faithfully approximately every 4-5 weeks, I was late to my appt one time and he refused to see me. He was going on vacation for a month and didn't even try to fit me in with one of his other stylists. My hair is super short and it cost me an average of $300.00 each time I walk out the door for a trim, color and highlights. Although it was expensive, I made sure I put the money aside because I really liked the way Anthony cut and styled my hair. Unfortunately because of my error on not arriving on time for one appt, I had to have someone else cut my hair and they have ruined it.\r
I admit that it was my fault that I was late, even though I was at an emergency vet visit with my dog, it didn't seem to matter to Anthony or his staff. I was pushed aside like yesterday's news! \r
I used to rave about how wonderful Anthony was and how great of a hair stylist he is, but now I think differently. They say one bad experience will be told to many more people than a good experience. As you can see, I am still telling of the bad one.
Pros: Great Haircut and Style
Cons: Don't Value Customers
I was absolutely determined to become a redhead this summer, and because of one amazing stylist, Claire, I am! I've never been so happy with my hair or received so many compliments from strangers. Not only is the color gorgeous but the cut is incredibly flattering too. The salon itself was beautiful, inviting, and relaxing. Everyone there was very hospitable and pleasant. I felt so at ease and the prices were very reasonable . I would highly recommend Claire for both a cut and color. She took me from a dark brown to a fabulous multi-dimensional red head. I truely have my dream hair!
Pros: Total Satisfaction
Claire is fantastic, she listened and understood what I really wanted. The staff speaks kindly to customers and each other. Which is not the case in many places I have gone. The Londoner is clean and has an great feel.
Cons: Can't think of any
I have gone to many different stylists and have finally found the perfect match, Gina at the Londoner Salon. I originally came into Gina after getting a bad haircut from a different salon. My hair was pretty badly butchered. Gina completely fixed my hair, and and got me back on track with a great style. Not only is Gina a great stylist, she is also an amazing colorist. I totally 100% trust her! I have sent many friends over to Gina, and they have all been completely satisfied!
I recently walked in to londoner on a whim, i was leaving the country and needed my hair done. I did not have a appointment and it was very late in the evening but i figuerd i would give it a shot. i am so glad i did, jerry was on his way out, but i told him my situation and he was happy to stay late and take on my mess of hair. he gave me a few options with what could be done with my hair and then what would look the best on me. the finish result was nothing short of amazing., and his scalp massage was the best ive ever had. Everything from his color to blowdry was the best ive ever had i highly reccomend jerry if you are looking for a new stylist . i booked my next appointment before i left and cant wait to go back.
Pros: good service,comfortable shampoo bowls,freindly staff
Just wanted to give a quick compliment to the staff and stylist at Londoner Salon. I was looking for a new place to get my hair done now that summer is almost here and I stumbled on Londoner here on Citysearch. I read some of the reviews and they all seemed positive so I decided to give it a shot. I was seen by Michelle Clagg, whose name I had seen a few times in the reviews. I really liked what she did. I wanted to lighten my hair but still make it look natural, I'm not into all the fancy stuff that other women do to their hair. We talked about it and then she went to work. I have to tell you, I am very please with the work that she did. She gave just the right touch of highlights and the style and cut is exactly what I was looking for. I think I'm gonna be a regular at Londoner; I've already made another appointment to see her again in a few weeks. I'll definitely be recommending Londoner and Michelle to my girlfriends.
I recently moved to the LA area after living in NYC for several years. I'm very picky with who cuts my hair and have always been willing to spend a little money to make sure I get the best cut and service possible. That's what I've come to expect coming from NYC. Based on a friend's recommendation, I went to check out Londoner Salon, and specifically Michelle Clagg, since I had not been happy with the different places I'd been too. I'm glad I took him up on his recommendation! This salon is classy. The front desk staff accommodates you from the minute you walk in the door to the minute they hand you off to your stylist. It's sleek, modern, and very inviting. The same can be said for Michelle. Right off the bat, you can tell that this girl knows what she's doing. She asks questions, finds out what you want, gives her suggestions and the end result comes out perfect. When I went, I'd grown my hair out a bit because I really didn't want to go back to my last stylist and hadn't found a new one. Well, Michelle changed all that. She gave me the right cut and I'm back to looking like the young professional that I am. She quick and precise. I swear, the way she cut my sides, you'd think she used clippers, but nope, it was all scissors with her fingers as the guide. That's now skilled she is. I'm not looking anymore. For as long as I'm in LA, I'll be going to Londoner and Michelle will be my stylist.
I have been all over the Southbay to get my hair done, and I must admit, Michelle Clagg is by far the most impressive stylist there is! She knows exactly what you visualize in your head, and adds the cherry on top. Plus, she's so sweet and YOU'LL LOVE IT !!!\r
Pros: Londoner Salon is absolutely inviting !!!
For years I have looked for the perfect salon; somewhere where it's evident that the salon staff knows that they're in business for the client. At last I've found that salon; it's The Londoner Salon Spa in Manhattan Beach. From the moment I walk in I'm warmly greeted by the receptionist who asks if I'd like a beverage. Then Jerry my stylist takes me to his station and evaluates my hair and asks me questions like, ""how was your last cut? is there anything about it you would like me to do differently this time?"" Jerry seems to have written the book on the stylist / client relationship because he's all about making me feel special. He meticulously cuts and shapes my hair and LISTENS to what I want while applying his professional knowledge and skill to achieving the desired result.\r
Finally, I look forward to having my hair cut. The Londoner Spa rocks and JERRY'S THE BEST.\r
