Having been a regular Starr House patron for quite some time, I had to write in and share my experience: Andrea is simply fabulous! Her color compliments the client's skin tone and looks natural. It also grows out really well without any obvious "lines." Chris' cutting is always creative and fun, and he indeed listens to his clients' requests. It's not cheap, but you're definitely worth the investment and you get what you pay for! A visit to Starr House will guarantee that you will walk out looking your best.

I went to Starr House for a wax with Karen. She did a great job and it is my new wax salon. I asked her about hair services and she introduced me to one of the top stylists, who took time and sat down to do a consultation with me. I love the concept of this place, I booked my appointment on the spot. Starr House is my new place. Thank you guys!!!

Andrea spent maybe 5 minutes tops with me and in the end it looked like color I could get out of a box. I sat in her chair for over an hour and she never even came to check the result. It was wayyy too pricey for the end result. Chris cut my hair three times and the first cut was great, the second was okay and the third was not good at all. I was bummed because he did such a great job the first time. Too inconsistent for the price :(

I heard about Starr House from people in my office so I thought I would give it a shot as I have been driving to the West Side and Starr House is a lot cheaper than what I have been paying. I made and appointment for color and cut. I brought pictures and talked to my colorist and cutter about what I wanted. They both made suggestions and in the end gave me exactly what I wanted. I loved it and will be back.

First of all, this place is crazy expensive. They charge Beverly Hills prices. I wouldn't mind if the service was good. It's not. I got the most bizarre haircut from Chris. He basically turned my long straight hair into a mullet. Then Andrea overhighlited my brown hair, giving it brassy, banana colored streaks. WTH? The salon is really dark. Maybe they can't see? I'm ticked I spent the money on this place. I'd have been better off at Supercuts.

Pros: none

Cons: bad cut/hilites

.

I decided to splurge on myself for the first time in a long time and the results are fabulous! After receiving a phone interview to determine who would best meet my needs, I knew I was in for something different. Kimberly cut my hair, Andrea did my color, and Karen waxed my brows while the foils were in my hair. Everyone is friendly and down to earth. This is a very convenient full service salon with top notch results. The results of my hair color were natural looking and beautiful; the cut is fabulous; and even the wax job was excellent!!! I have received lots of compliments on my new and improved look. It has been a few weeks now and I look forward to going back for more. I highly recommend this salon!!

I read the reviews on this site about Starr House, some not great but most of them really great and thought I would take the chance that City Search members knew best. I was right this place was friendly, upscale and just under the radar of being crazy busy. I went on a Wednesday afternoon and my colorist and cutter were booked. I loved the hilites and hair cut I got. I will definitely be talking all my crazy friends who waste half the day and a lot of money going to the west side to try this place that's close to home.

After much debate I decided to shell out the money for this place. I expected a fabulous haircut. I had Chris who was nice and helpful but the entire process felt rushed, he didn't really listen to my input or look at the pictures I brought. The entire hair cut took around 15 minutes. When he finished, I was shocked, there was not that much change. Definitely not worth the $75 dollars. I came back a few weeks later to get my bangs trimmed. That took about 2 minutes and they came out too choppy. A few days later, I had my friend who works for Toni and Guy cut my hair and she asked if I cut my bangs myself because it did not look professional. Will not be coming back to Starr house again, it was a huge disappointment.

Pros: Cool looking neighborhood

Cons: Price and Cut

I'd like to second a previous observation that a large percentage of these reviews sound as if they had been written by a Starr House employee. My skepticism is only reinforced by my own bad experience at Starr House, which might not have seemed as negative had I not driven what turned out to be over an hour to the place on the basis of the many suspiciously well-worded positive reviews on this site. I happened to get lost on my way there and arrive late, so to be fair I won't go into the specific snootiness with which I was greeted in case I deserved that for being late. However, after my haircut, Albert repeatedly burned my neck with the hairdryer while flat-brushing my hair so vehemently that it felt like it was being yanked out by the roots, bringing tears to my eyes, and he did not cease burning me even after I jerked away suddenly a couple of times and he had to say, "Oh, sorry, did I burn you?" (I assured him that he had). If you do go to this salon that has to drum up business by writing its own reviews, make sure and don't be late or you will be physically injured as a consequence!!!

I was referred to Starr House by a friend who goes there. I got Hilights and a Hair cut with Andrea and Chris. I thought it was great. I was really impressed with the consultation and that they read what I wrote. We then talked about it and they both gave me just what I asked for. I really liked the salon and the program (send 3 friends get a free service as a thank you) will get me to tell my friends too.

I got a hair cut and color from Kimberly and Andrea but I must say, it wasn't impressive enough. She seemed to be in a hurry and was done in 10-15 mins. There weren't many people in the salon which surprised me since it had some great reviews. Not the one for me!! I am ready to pay the price (and it is expensive ) but I want a style which is worth it.

I had my hair cut with Chris. He was nice enough and did a decent job on the cut (thought not quite what I had asked for). It definitely wasn't worth $75. He seriously only took 10 minutes cutting my hair, only listened to half of what I asked for and didn't even ask if the cut was ok after he finished. I got the impression he was in a hurry to get me out - not a good impression for a first time customer. I wouldn't go back.

I have been looking for a while to find my salon. I read the reviews and tried Starr House. I have now found my salon. Everyone was so nice, friendly and professional. I am really amazed that my hair looks so great and the salon acted like they really wanted me there instead of other salons that act like their doing you a favor for showing up. I was also amazed at the price I expected to pay a lot more for a real West Side experiences. I tired starr house and loved it.

I was just browsing throught the site here to let my friend know where to look and was horrified to read a review about Andrea. As a very very loyal client of Starr House I would like to mention that Andrea does the most beautiful and natural hair I have ever seen, no streaky or funky from her! She even referrs clients to other stylists if that is what they want as it is not her style nor is it a reflection of her work. And the nearly 3 years since I have been going to her she has never been running late unless her client before me was late which pushed me back. She sees so may people a day as she is so popular that if any are late( and out here that happens!) It upsets her entire morning. as for her hair, it used to be blonde, now it is red, nothing weird about that right? What do you expect, she is a colorist!!!!! Believe me, she is fantastic, there is nothing she doesn't know about color, how to do, fix, change........ go on try her, you won't be disappointed!!!!

I loved this place. I read the reviews even a few bad ones and thought I would try it. I really loved it. I saw Andrea and Kimberly for color and cut. Andrea did a great Highlight on me- really natural and Kimberly gave me a great haircut. They are doing Style classes for the clients now and I signed up for one. I think this place really has it together and will be letting everyone know about it... thanks city search for having such a great site...

Awful. I had highlights done by Andrea. It is the most hideous, unnatural looking color my hair has ever had the pleasure of sporting. Bright yellow, brassy, streaky highlights. Andrea was half an hour late for our appointment (on a weekday with barely anyone else in the salon). After she put the foils on, Andrea disappeared, never to be seen again. Never bothered to check the color to see how it turned out. She just left. Unbelievable. I had a bad feeling the moment I met her and saw *her* hair color which is hideous, as mine now is. They offer free correction, but there is no way I would let her touch my hair again. An expensive mistake.

By the way, most of these reviews read like press releases for the salon, which is clever or deceptive marketing depending upon your point of view. Personally, I feel duped.

I have tried salons everywhere....West side, East Side, Valley and this salon far out weighs them all. I found it professional, clean, nice and slightly trendy. I called and booked with Andrea for hilites and Kimberly for haircut. Both women talked to me about what I wanted and really listened. That in and of itself was new treatment for a salon. Then they both made nice small talk...but in the end (where it really counts) delivered what I wanted. I don't remember being this pleased with my hair in a long long time. This place is worth the hype and worth the drive (if not close to you). Amazing....

I am a fairly new client of Chris', have been to him a few times and I came to this site today to tell my friend what to look for. Chris is a fantastic hairdresser , he is by far the best cutter I have ever been to (and there have been many!) But when I was in New York I had a great guy there too, and he was very different both personality and style. I was happy with my hair before I moved here and I am equally or even more happy with it now , and it is drastically different. I guess you can't be all things to all people tho. Keep up the great work Chris, my friends and I love you and my entire office is about to make appts too! Oh and Andrea ia a color magician!

I have been to Chris a few times now and my entire office are about to book with him too. I found him here and on another site. I moved here from NYC and had a great guy there too but they are completely different both in personality and style, but guess what, my hair is drastically different now than before and I love it and Chris. I totally trust him with my locks and so do my friends. I guess you can't be all things to all people all of the time tho. Keep up the great work Chris, we are all booking ahead, you are so hard to get in with. Even my 72 year old mother loves what you do with her hair. Oh and Andrea is fab with the color too!

Based on the excellent reviews on different websites I made an appointment with Chris and Andrea. I just moved here from the East Coast and my hair was long overdue for a cut and highlight.

I love the job Andrea did. She's incredibly knowledgeable and explained everything. I think she did a great color. In fact she really made it look better, colorwise...
However, I am incredibly frustrated because Chris chopped about five inches off my hair when I told him I wanted to keep it long and he said "I'll just take about one inch off." After cutting it he said "I know it's probably more off than you were expecting but it looks so cute for your face." well I hate it. I wanted to keep it long and now it will take a year to grow it out. I guess the lesson here is be firm in what you ask for.,...which I thought i was!

Too bad b/c i really would like to go back to Andrea but at this point I am so mad that I don't want to go back to that salon.

Pros: easy parking

Cons: STYLIST DID NOT LISTEN TO WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

.

Based on online reviews I tried this salon after moving from the East Coast.

I have nothing but praise for Andrea who gave me a full higlight. She really knows her stuff and explained everything.

However, I am incredibly upset about my cut. After telling Chris I wanted to keep my hair long he cut over five inches off. He explained what he was going to do shape/layer wise and said he'd cut off about one inch. Well at the end of the cut he said "i know this is probably more than you expected but it looks so good with the shape of your face....it's so cute." Well, I HATE IT!!! I never wanted it this short. I told him I'd let him decide on the shaping (he said he was going to cut the back a bit shorter) but, again, that I wanted to keep it LONG.

Too bad too because I really really like the job Andrea did but out of principle probably won't go back to the salon. And now I'm left with having to be unhappy with my hair for about ten months until it grows out.. VERY UPSET.

Well at the end of the cut he said "i know this is probably more than you expected but it looks so good with the shape of your face....it's so cute." Well, I HATE IT!!! I never wanted it this short. I told him I'd let him decide on the shaping (he said he was going to cut the back a bit shorter) but, again, that I wanted to keep it LONG.

Too bad too because I really really like the job Andrea did but out of principle probably won't go back to the salon. And now I'm left with having to be unhappy with my hair for about ten months until it grows out.. VERY UPSET.

I went to Starr house with some hesitance since none of my friends or co-workers had heard of the place, it was a bit pricy, and I only had citysearch's reviews to go off of. But Chris, my stylist, quickly knocked those thoughts out of my head. Truely a professional, he questioned what my habits were, amount of time I had dedicated to my hair, etc. Not only did he do an increadible job cutting and styling my hair, he actually broke it down for me as to how to achieve the same look at home. None of the complicated 16 step instructions (I'm a wash and go type of person). The compliments I recieved about my new look were too numerous to count and definately worth the cost ($75)!

Pros: Free parking, knowledgable staff

Cons: price - but worth it!

After reading many good reviews from insiderpages I decided to try it out. I got a cut from Kimberly. She took the time to cut my hair and blow dry it. Normally I go to Asian places where they have a hard time understanding what I want because they never fix my hair right. Is it that hard to understand "take a inch off". Here I came out actually loving my hair cut. She even gave me easy tips on taking care of my hair at home. I would recommend giving this place a try.

PROS: Service
CONS: None

I have been going to Andrea for a very long time for my color, we met in Washington DC after I read a review about her as best colorist in the dc area written by the Washintonian, wow what a big deal I thought. I had to wait about 4 weeks to see her and it was well worth it. Since then I moved out to the LA area and saw her when I went back east to visit my family. You can imagine how delighted I was when she said she was moving out here too! I travel from the beach just to have her do my color. And I have watched her steadily grow here too as word has got out. Andrea came from San Fransisco then moved to DC after NYC. She has been an international educator for Wella, Clairol, Schwartzcopf..... that means she has taught other colorists, there is nothing she does not know, it is fasinating! ( I know everything about here, well it has been a long time!) Her DC clients included senators, lawyers, they couldn't get enought of her. And now LA is getting word of it too, she has had reviews alongside Fredrich Fakkai in Angelino, best color/cut recently in Elle and many local magazines. And what's even better, she costs me less here than she did on the east coast. She is $75 for color and $130-$160 for hilights, that's it, no more, and that includes shampoo and blowdry by her amazing assistants. And if you take in a pic she will tell you flat out, yes I can or no I can not, and this is why. It's not that she cannot do it its that she does not think it is in your best interest to (lets say you want really blonde as I have) use bleach as it will ruin your hair. And when she says you will just need a retouch next time and not hilights she means in a month or so, not 3 when there is half a head of roots! (been there too!) Go see her, tell her Amy sent you!!!!!

First let me say that not every salon can please all of the people all of the time, but Starr House pleased me and I am very picky. I have been to most salon in the Pasadena area including several recommended on this site and a few on the west side too. I have found that they are not bad but not great either. I gave it one more go at this site and found starr house. I called and was pretty much interviewed by Karen ( a service I loved as she explained she wanted to match me to the right people) she recommended Andrea and Kimberly. I went to the salon and filled out a consultation form and had a very long talk with Andrea about my color. How often I wanted to come in, how much I wanted to spend, how I kept it up (product) and what I had done in the past. I was really amazed at how long she spent with me. Kimberly talked to me for a long time too. I had my services and was just thrilled with the result. I think the hilights are the most natural I have ever had and the cut is cute and easy to take care of. The referral program (send in 3 friends and get a free service) topped off my great time. Thanks Starr House for giving me hope in the Pasadena area again.

The 1st time there my hilights were immaculate ($180 +25 tip). The 2nd time I got only the base color, inconsistent with an obvious darker color on top which was so contrasting to the earlier all over blonde below ($140 +20 tip). I was told the next time my full hilites would be better. So on my 3rd time I expected just that! For $180 + 15 tip, I still had streaks acrross from the old coloring before PLUS the new color on my left side had so many variations of brown (suppossed to be blonde, hello?) mixed with some blonde.Also this time like the 2nd visit no one bothered to check my developing b4 they rinsed and (barely) dried my hair.It was so dissapointing the next day when I noticed all this inconsistent colors after I shampooed.I didn't want to spend another $180 again when it should've been just as good as the very 1st time! Shame on me if I go back.There isn't any excuse for spending this amount of money to have such bad results.They are very nice, but I would rather have bad attitudes and the right color.I have been nothing but nice and even when I called to say how unhappy I was Andrea gave me some unbelievable reason that she was just looking out for the health of my hair. (Yeah, I alreday skipped a bleach hilite for 3 months prior! Hello!)That was so dissapointing. I thought I had found my dream salon, but once again, I'm out looking for a place that will be consistent to a loyal (and generous) client like me...I don't recommend this place, sorry folks. Live and learn, don't take my word for it..walk around for 3 months in embbarrassment like I did, first! Oh and don't be 5-10 minutes early, they will make a comment.

First off let me say that I am VERY picky about my hair and always hesitant to try new places. After reading all the rave reviews for Starr House, I had to try them and was thrilled with the experience I had (and continue to have). Each time I leave feeling fantastic. Andrea colors my hair so it looks so soft and natural, not streaky or brassy AT ALL. If you are someone who colors their hair and wants it to LOOK colored this might not be the place for you. Chris's cuts are fantastic and hold up for months. I've gotten more compliments than I ever have. They run on time, are super friendly and don't take forever to do a great job. In a nutshell if you want the westside color/cut without the attitude and crazy prices, try Starr House.

Well, can I just say that I called Starr House for a haircut and I was asked a few determining questions (like a mini interview on the phone) to best determine my stylist and I was given a choice of a male and a female best suited for my type and style of hair. Can you imagine my surpise when the young lady that came up to greet me when I had filled out my consultation form was Kimberly from the Jonathon's hair salon show on Bravo. I LOVED that show and she was amazing on it. She is as equally amazing at Starr House, I absolutely love my haircut, it is so Chic! I am so excited that Kimberly is here in San Marino/Pasadena area as the journey and price put me off the Bev Hills area. Now I am looking forward to going back for my color with Andrea. Great job you guys! Thank You Kimberly!

I went to Starr House this past weekend after reading the reviews here and had Chris and Andrea do my cut and hilites. I have to say I am amazed at the hilights most likely the best of my life and the cut is cute. Chris took a lot of time with me to show me how to style it and Andrea talk to me about upkeep and products to keep my hilights looking great. Thanks Starr House for making me look great.

First let me say that the people at Starr House are very nice. I feel somewhat bad for writing a negative review; however, I do think review sites such as this one are a helpful resource and I want to be honest about my experience. I had a cut with Chris which was good. He took much more off than I wanted, but gave me a decent cut which has held up well. I also had color with Andrea which, unfortunately, was awful. They are the worst highlights I've ever had. Unartfully applied, extremely streaky, brassy blonde highlights. They were not competently done. I'm sorry to say this. I was very hopeful about Starr House after reading the reviews here. I think they are excellent marketers, but the services are not great. Also, contrary to what is stated in other reviews, their prices are actually pretty high--$90 for a cut with Chris and $160 for highlights with Andrea. It is a bit less than the salons I've been to in Beverly Hills, but I'd rather pay a little more and get exactly what I want.

I have just returned from having one of the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences at the hair salon! And it is last thing Friday and I was fighting traffic and was late! But Kimberly who has just joined this ever growing team had no problem staying behind to give me an amazing haircut, I only wish I had a hot date tonight to show it off! And she is a celeb too, from the TV show Blow Out! Thanks Kimberly, I love my new doo and will definately act on your suggestion of having my hilights brightened by your colorist Andrea. See you soon for sure!

PROS: SO flexible
CONS: none at all

I found Starr House on this site read the reviews and was going to make an appointment with Andrea and Chris. I couldn't get in with them at a time that worked for me and was told that Andrea can take 3 times as many clients as Chris and they have hired a new master cutter. I made an appointment with Andrea and Kimberly and found the 2 nicest and most knowable women that do amazing color and cuts I have ever found. Bonus is Kimberly was on the show Blow Out so I got lots of celb. gossip and great star tips to style my own hair. These chicks really rock. Try Starr House you'll love it.

PROS: Great place and easy parking

I was searching for a salon in the area as I have been traveling quite a long way to my other salon and found Starr House. After calling I was really surprised that they do have great pricing. From $50 to $75 and guarantee their work at all prices. I had a $50 dollar haircut and $50 color and was amazed at the quality of the work. I was not expecting much really but walked out feeling like I had a 100 cut and 100 color. I can't say enough great things about this place. Try them!!!

after needing to find a salon that was closer to my house I found Starr House. I called and asked about pricing and was told the prices for hair cuts range from $50 to $75 dollars. But that they guarantee their work at every price. After that I felt confident to book a $50 dollar cut and $50 color. I can't tell you how amazed I was with the salon and my service. I didn't expect much for $100 bucks total and was thrilled that I was treated like a million bucks and not some cheap skate (like I have been in the past at high end places). I have found a new salon and will tell as many people as I can about this great find!

The best Manicurist I have ever been too! I've have sensitive hands & nails, so she puts a lot of attention to detail, like checking my nails before cutting & fileing. she is very clean and sterile. My nails always look great when she is done with me! My french manicure last over a week and are always perfect! my nails have a natural look & feel. I ONLY trust Deana Marie and have for the last 20 years. Every time I go to another salon out of town, they always tell me, who ever does your nails, this is the best job I have ever seen! Deana Marie does not take any more appointment because she is so busy, but try to get one, you never know!

PROS: She is a massage therapist too, she gives a great foot & hand massage!!
CONS: none!

I havent been able to find a hairdresser that I like since I left pennsylvania six years ago, but I think I've found an acceptable replacement. Connie gave me one of the best cuts I've had in a very long time. I brought in a picture of what I wanted and she went to town. After some inital akwardness about wanting to color my hair and me politely refusing, she gave me a great razor cut. We had a lengthy discussion about cutting techniques which was very informative. As she dried my hair, she took back her previous comment about dying and decided that my hair color was fine just the way it is. I have returned to Connie and will continue to let her cut my hair.

I searched for a salon that was close to home and had high ratings and this is what I got. Chris, the master cutter, was quick and detailed. He examined my wavy, frizzy hair and gave me the most fabulous and sophisticated haircut I've ever received. It's been three months since that day I walked in and it's still gorgeous. Everyone compliments the cut--some still ask me if I just got a cut! I'll be back soon.

Note: As an extra bonus they offer a referral program where you get a free haircut after you bring in three new friends. It's a pretty good deal if you ask me because a cut is $65-75 (for women).

Ok I read the reviews- but still went with some hesitation. I called and was indeed greeted by Karen (one of the owners) who asked me about my hair, my expectations- everything and did pair me up with Andrea and Chris (who I wanted to try anyway). I went in filled out my form had a great talk with Andrea and then with Chris and was amazed with what they did. It was what I asked for done quickly and didn't cost West side prices. Wow- Starr House really is what people think it is!!!

I made an appointment to see Karen for a wax. I will no mention where it was- :) but I will say I was amazed at how quickly it went and how it didn't hurt and no red bumps. I even took her advice and had a haircut with Christina and have found my new stylist!! Christina rocks and Karen rules. Great place give it a try.

I found this place after a long search (and lots of money spent) and it was worth the wait. I saw Andrea and she corrected my very blotchy high lights and the strange orange- green color that the last stylist left me with. I was amazed that she was able to do it in one trip and only charged me for a high light. I am really impressed and will share my new find with many many people.

I have recently moved to the area and being faced with finding a new salon on top of everything else was overwhelming. But a friend told me about insider pages and I tried found Starr House and can't stop talking about it. I am use to getting good hair cuts and color. But here I got Amazing cut and color. Andrea and Chris were everything I have read and more. Karen did the most amazing make up on me and I left feeling revived and refreshed. Amazing really. A most try for anyone who is looking for the best with out the high cost
