I saw Carla for the first time two years ago at the Woodland Hills location, and I am so happy she has moved closer to me in Santa Monica!!! She is amazing. A gorgeous woman with beautiful skin, the best calling card! She has the best hands and a knack for making me feel relaxed, cared for, and for giving me celebrity caliber skin! I don't wear foundation because I don't need it now that I see Carla.

She does a thorough examination and recommends the best regimen for my skin, and it actually works! No B.S. with her, she is a straight shooter and gives me exactly what I need. My eyebrows are straight out of Vogue, gorgeous, and she can wax like no other. If ever she is not here, I see her twin sister (equally as amazing) at the Woodland Hills location.

Do yourself a treat, see Carla for any spa treatment, you will be so happy and maybe you'll look as good as me!!!

I never find the need to write a comment, but after this AWFUL experience at this salon with no refund or ounce of customer care, I found the need to write a comment. I wet in the hair salong asking my har stylist Sara to make my hair blonde. She told me that it would take a few times, and that is fine, being a dark brunette I understand the complications. Anyhow, she started to color my hair and in the mist of the process my head started to burn and so did my neck since the hair was resting on my neck...she lifts the plastic off my head and steam is coming off my head. At the point, I didnt think to much of it, since Im a newbie.. four hours later and less of 360 dollars I lef tthe salon with a green do'. My ash color that I didnt NOT want was GREEN. I went home and lifted up my hair to put it in a pony tail and under neath my hair was brown green and red, she didnt even mention anything to me!

I went back the next morning and they would not refun my money, and Allen the owner...AWFUL customer service...took the green out of my hair to finailly make me look normal...and told me that if i want highlights that i would have to pay another 100 bucks on top of the 360. i left the salon with no highlights and an UGLY dry damaged light brown hair.

PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!! AWFUUUUL now i have to pay another 500 to go get it repaired elsewhere!!!

Sarah is amazing! Everyone compliments my hair since I started going to her. I love her work. She is a true artist. Highly recommended. She doesn't push you to buy products and other services. Good company, nice to talk to but not too talky!

I walked in 20 minutes before my facial appointment and was greeted by a confused looking employee. I had to explain that I had an appointment before I received a friendly attitude. The facial itself was mediocre. Her hands were very light, not the firm experienced hands I tend to enjoy. She did attempt to explain to me why I was breaking out and why my skin was very dry. She also offered to give me some samples of a couple products she used during the facial. I don't know if it was because I made the appt during spa week (where each facial is only $50), but I did not even receive a facial massage - just a decollete massage. I've never gotten a facial where a massage on the face is not performed. However, what turned me off the most was that her goodbye greeting was "good luck" as though she assumed I only got the facial because it was cheap and that I'd never return. No "see you soon" or "I hope you enjoyed it" or "Come see us again". My advice - go to another spa where you'll get a more enjoyable experience at the same price.

Pros: parking in rear

Cons: not worth the money

i used to get my haircut here all the time. i loved my stylist -- she knew what style and cuts worked best with my hair and personality. the location in brentwood and santa monica was also convenient for the westside. the service is great as well. however, it's gotten a bit pricier over the last few years - about a 30% increase in a two year span.

Salon staff was very friendly and welcoming. The space was clean and fairly quiet for the most part considering that there this is a hair salon/spa combo. There was no form for me to fill out about skin care history, allergies, products that I am using etc. I laid down and the facialist turned the steam on me right away (without removing my makeup first!). As the steam is on my she was asking me about my skin. Her technique and hands were good and firm. The only downside about the technique is that she virtually ignored my neck with the products! I have never not had a mask on my neck. Additionally, she did not spray and anticeptic after extraction! The upside is that she was not pushy with products and did not chat too much during the servce.

Wonderful spa with great massages $90, and facials $80, but they come with a hefty price.

My first experience with Allen Edwards was great. When I called for an appointment, no one was snooty to me when I asked about prices, and actually suggested some "staff specials" for first time clients. The receptionist was knowledgeable and detailed enough to ask what kind of hair and style I wanted, so that she could recommend a stylist. Same great service and friendliness from the staff. I don't mind paying for great skills and service...and hate when upscale places get snobby and pretentious. Not the case here! I'll definitely be back!

The best haircuts and color anywhere in the world. Each haircut is carefully planned by the hair designer for the individual. Everyone there is warm and friendly. There is not too much noise or talking.

I went to this salon for my first brazilian bikini wax. I have been to several others since then and I have found that what I got was an excellent brazilian at Allen Edwards. The people were very professional and very very thorough!
