I have been going here for two years now and absolutely love this salon. Sometimes the people can be a bit stuck up, but usually they shower you with compliments and make you feel confident. I was seeing Denise, who I absolutely loved, but recently found out she doesn't work at the salon and was wondering if anyone knows where she went.

I had been going to the same person for my hair forever. And the haircut and color was okay. I was nervous about trying someone new, but it was time. I called for an appointment and was booked with Haley for a highlight and cut. She was awesome!! Haley made me feel very comfortable and put me at ease by not trying to change my look drastically. My hair had started to get really brassy and she was able to get the color back to a natural looking dimensional blonde. She made a few adjustments to my cut and took the time to give me tips on how to change the style with different tools and products. No one has ever taken so much time to make sure I could do it properly. The salon was clean and the other people working there were so nice. Haley was definitely worth it!! I love the Ken Paves Salon!

Disappointing result for the cost - uneven cut, even though supposedly expert in "precision" cutting - stylists with attitude, which wouldn't be a problem if they did better work!!!

Pros: Pretty venue, celeb sightings

Cons: Bad haircut

While Ken Paves is obviously talented it says something about a CEO when all of the people whom worked for Jordan's Enchanted Cottage, which was bought out for over US$500,000 (the lease) by Ken Paves as a "West Coast" salon. A salon that charges US$3-00.00 for a man's haircut. Even disgraced Senator John Edwards did not pay that much. This salon is for the Robertson corridor crowd that wants to experience the euro-trash Hollywood scene. Seeing the quality of Mr. Paves hair cut on a woman whom paid US$900.00, it was not amazing, but decent.

I went to this salon for the first time today not knowing what to expect. I was referred to Amber and she did an awesome job w/ my hair. I had straight long hair with some poor bangs, and it was rather dull overall. It needed something, but I didn't know what. Amber made suggestions to help my hair have movement. She is the first hairstylist to get my bangs and layers right!!! She is awesome! That's why she has mad skills. I have been on this endless search and no one can get it right. She totally knows what she is doing, and she is very precise and meticulous. I love my haircut and will go to her again. She is really sweet and friendly. She listens to you very well, and best of all, she confidently gives you suggestions for your hair if you are unsure.

I have struggled to find a good hairstylist for ever. After reading the reviews from Citysearch, I decided to take a 4 hour road trip to Ken Paves Salon. I was nervous, and worried that my investment wouldn't pay off.
It did!
My hairstylist wa LISA, and she saved my hair.
I came in to her with so many different cuts, and colors in my hair, it took hours to correct, and even after everyone left the salon for the weekend, she was determined to get my (dead overprocessed) hair looking glamorous, and worked until it was perfect.
She was so kind and listened.
For upscale LA I felt right at home. It is a small salon, but beautifully designed.
Lisa rocks as a stylist, and even more importantly- as a person.
I should also note to that the rest of the staff were very friendly.
I'll drive 4 hours to see LISA again. Totally recommended.

If you are looking for the best of the best....You will find it at Ken Paves with Riawn Capri & Nikki Lee. They are masters with their hair extensions.... Ladies, this is worth every penny. You will have flawless super hot hair every day of your life (there is no such thing as a bad hair day when you have these ladies touch your hair and work their magic). If you take care of the extensions, they will last at least 6 months, if your hair grows super fast 5 months then. My personal hair has never been more healthier -- i have had extensions now for about 2 years -- i have been letting mine grow out due to a horrible razor cut my previous hair dresser did on me.

These girls are also both super talented at cutting stylish hairdo's as well as styling your hair.

You will not regret calling and making an appointment.

I've been going to Ken Paves Salon since it opened more than a year ago+ for color and extensions.

I love my color (I'm a brunette and get all over color, no highlights) and LOVE the long extensions (my natural hair falls just below my shoulders), which are super natural and easy to care for. Yes, they are pricey but COME ON it looks amazing and well worth the price. Riawna and Nikki are both miracle workers. They can make any head of hair look fantastic! Trust me- I've seen the before and afters!

My girlfriend wanted a change after she cut her hair to her chin. After 6 months she was tired of her short locks and I suggested she give extensions a try... and Ken Paves Salon. She loves the extensions... they give her more length and more body (her hair is naturally thin).

To sum it up - Wonderful stylists that 100% know and care what they are doing, a gorgeous salon and more often then not a celebrity or two!

I couldn't agree more with Jule79!

I recently went in for extensions with Nikki and walked out feeling like a different person - in the best way possible! She is a total sweetheart and everyone in the salon was accomodating while I was getting worked on. It's a half-day process but the end result looked sensational and 2 months after the extensions were placed in they still look great. Well worth the expense if you are looking for a new do! btw- I'm a dark blond with highlights and the color of the extensions were a perfect match.

After having lived in NY for 8 years and having great, edgy hairstyles, I was worried about finding the right people to do my hair in LA. I met Ken through work, and he set me up with Jordan to cut my hair, and Riawna to color it. Jordan absolutely gives the BEST haircut I have ever had in my life. He is a true artist, who looks at the shape of your face and head, your coloring and your body, and designs the best look for you. And his haircuts grow out so well too - I was still getting compliments after 5 months! He is a beautiful person with incredible life experience, so I enjoy the time with him tremendously. Riawna is also an amazing artist - my color looked incredible - just the perfect amount of beautiful and edgy at the same time. She is a total sweetheart and puts you at ease the second you meet her. Finally, I don't have to tell stylists what I want anymore - I trust them to do whatever they want, and I come out looking my best every time. Anyone who says this salon is stuck-up or not worth the money is so wrong.

Big name-with not so big following. I am a California girl however I have never been crazy about the salons on the west coast, but decided to try this one seeing that Jessica Simpon's hair always looks good. But obviously it is just regaurdless of what Jessica does, she has beautiful hair. I gave this salon a try and quite a let down. Price is never a object, however the service must be worth it. This service was not worth it, and the experiance was not either. Longest 2 hours I ever had to experiance, a waste of money, and your typical over rated hollywood crowd that thinks they are something. NY is the place to be for hair, deefinately not here.

I called John Masters in NYC and they were so rude! and my hair was messed up there for the first time<
So I guess you could say another God moment for me basically I cold called and expected this cold,
fake atmosphere I dislike very much instead as it says entered the most enchanting cottage and met
Denise a true delicate flower the sweetest girl saved my georgious hair and well "got me" listened
was patient with me and as a real blondy with long curly locks I'm in awe that "I'm back!" Everything
about this salon says class, and professionalism. I highly recommend Denise for blondes!, and
the salon for it's good energy clearly an extension of Ken. The garden is like heaven, and you'll feel
as if you've been there after leaving this salon it's all about being Real! nothing fake about it people!

The best salon ever!! I'm new to L.A. and getting married this summer. I am also pretty picky about my hair and was very apprehensive about finding a new stylist to get my hair wedding-ready. So far, I've had haircuts from Denise and Larry and am blown away by how talented they both are. They were able to give me the gorgeous long layers I have been coveting just by looking at some pictures I brought. I have taken these same pictures to many other salons over the years, and have never even come close to getting a comparable haircut. I have been complimented by just about everyone I know (even strangers!). This haircut truly is something out of a magazine.

In addition to the quality of the haircuts, the salon itself is beautiful and cozy, and I found everyone there to be friendly and positive. It was not stuffy at all. Upon my arrival, I was given a cup of herbal tea and a cozy seat on the patio under the heat lamps. The salon is pricey, but it is worth every penny. Try it and you will be a convert too!

It's a bit pricey, but like the others said, it's totally worth it. I love my haircut! I did feel a bit awkard walking in because the receptionist desk is in the back of the salon so I didn't know where to go at first. In anycase, if you're looking for a good hairstylist that listens to what you want come to this salon. :)

My past experiences with salons in LA have been horrific service, cuts, etc... I recently moved to LA and after my third ruined haircut called the Ken Paves Salon after seeing some of the haircuts on the celebrities that the salon did. When I called the salon practically crying the receptionist could not have been nicer and more professional. After listening to my concerns she recommended a stylist called Nikki. I knew I was going on blind faith but at that point I figured I had nothing to lose so I booked the appointment. All I can say is my hair is AMAZING! I can't begin to tell you how nice it is to wake up and have my hair look great all the time. Not only is it easy for me to do but I have gotten so many compliments. Don't walk, run to this salon. True it is expensive but isn't the ease of a great cut and looking fantastic all the time worth it?
