I discovered Darin a couple years ago, when I first moved to LA. Since that time, I haven't gone anywhere else for a cut. He's one of the few people who can cut short hair and give it some shape. Plus, the rotating gallery of artwork is

Helen Is the best hairstylist in L.A.. In response to NTheKnow. Usually when people are concerned about the price they ask. If you don't ask it's your loss and you should pay whatever the service is. May It be a lesson learned.

Helen is awesome and she's been cutting my hair for over 10 years. I followed her to Chop Chop from her last salon and I've always had great work from her. People stop me on the street to comment on my great haircut.

Go to Chop Chop and ask for Helen! You will not be disappointed.

Pros: does what is best for the client, cool art, and ice tea!

Cons: none!

I'm the one that cut his hair and I want to tell my side of the story. At any point in the consultation he should have not agreed to me blending in the sides of his hair and cutting into the top of his hair. My prices are $95 and I gave him a 50% discount. He should have come out and said is this going to be free? Then I wouldn't of wasted my time to give him a haircut. In the 15 years of me cutting hair, I've never been accused of burning someone's sideburns.

Walked in asking for a sideburn trim. Walked out with a 50$, "discounted" bill. Called the owner, Darin, to ask what happened between my asking for a 5 second procedure and leaving with a hefty tab. He told me I looked "pretty" and if I wanted a simple cut I should have gone to my "regular girl."

PS: The cut is horrific!! Helen murdered my sideburns. My photo shoot tomorrow is going to be a disaster thanks to this greedy "salon" owner and his no-talent hair burning staff.

I walked in and they had Hershey kisses ready for me. I sat down and i got warm fresh coffee. I closed my eyes and felt awesome because the stylist and colorist, Juli Massakas, had such a great attentive touch and rhythm. I opened my eyes and poof! I looked gorgeous too. The coloring was professional and fierce, the setting was exceptional, and the people were to LIVE for! Thank you Miss Massakas for making me look like a billion bucks, and thank you Chop Chop for providing the highlight of my day!

Darin, the owner of the salon, gave me the best haircut I've EVER had in my life, no exaggeration. I have one of those unfortunate limpy, fine Asian hair that doesn't do anything. I was resigned to wearing my hair in a boring ponytail for eternity. Darin somehow magically transformed my limpy lock into a fun, swinging, perfectly layered 'do that looks great blown out or towel-dried. (Okay, maybe it wasn't magic; he did spend a long time cutting the layers, strand by strand, checking how each one behaved when wet and dried.)

For the first time in years, I'm actually wearing my hair down. It's been over a month since my cut, and my hair still looks fantastic. Try Darin; you will never, ever go to another stylist again.

What a great experience! I went to this salon for the first time today, and I have to say I walked out feeling like a million bucks! Juli did my color, and she was so helpful in telling me what my options are. I have been coloring my hair black for ages, and wanted to change to a more natural color. She advised me to do it gradually, and I must say the result is simply beautiful. She colored my roots a deep dark brown that blends in perfectly with the rest of the hair, and gradually will keep coloring my hair like that as it grows, until I reach the lighter brown I am dreaming of. After my color, I had an appointment with Amy to get a haircut. Now, I must say, I am very very impressed with the results. She really knows what she's doing! My original haircut was a sort of a bob, but not quite one, as the person who previously cut it didn't really know how to cut a nice bob. I told Amy I wanted to reshape my bob so that it looks better as my hair grows, and boy, she gave me THE BEST HAIRCUT I have ever had, EVER. I look totally different now, and I really feel like one of those models from the cover of a magazine. She did a great great job in the front, and she changed my look completely. I honestly couldn't imagine this haircut would be so gorgeous, as I have plenty of disappointing experiences in the past. Not with Amy though. She is REALLY good at this, I I cannot imagine going anywhere else from know on. This visit to Chop Chop salon really made my day!!!!!!!!
If you are looking for a high class hair salon, with a cool vibe, with people that make you feel right at home, and with the very best hair stylists, then you should go to Chop Chop. Also, I have to say their prices are also pretty good compared to a Beverly Hills salon that will charge you twice the amount for the same thing!
Great experience, highly recommended!!!

I LOVE this place! I just got my hair colored today by Juli. SHE IS AWESOME! It is by far the best color I have ever had. My hair is sooooo soft, even after getting my roots bleached and toned. This is my new favorite place and suggest that everyone should go. The whole staff was great and if you are in need of color...GO SEE JULI!!!!

After having different people at different salons do my hair (color, cut, straighten, etc.), it was Chop Chop that made me feel more welcome and comfortable. I knew that as soon as I walked in, it was going to be a great experience. A bad hair day is a terrible day as we all know and I knew I would be very satisfied. Juli did my color and I still get compliments to this day! She cares about her work and wants to make sure you will be happy. If she doesn't think a style or color will work, she won't do it. She is here for you and takes pride in her work. Darin has the friendly smile and all the other stylists will make you feel right at home. The only negative is the parking, but you deal with it. It is so worth it. Come to Chop Chop!!!!

I have been getting my hair colored by Juli for the past 3 years...and I get compliments everyday on how great the color is! She is so cautious in protecting my long hair..and it is still healthy and long after the color! I have moved back to the East Coast but will still be visitng ChopChop in LA specifically for my hair color by Juli!!!!

Pros: Great Color

Everyone is really friendly, and the atmosphere is great. Last time I went I had Amy cut my hair and Juli did the color - both were amazing. I've been to Juli a few times, and I always love how my hair turns out. Parking was a bit of a hassle, but totally worth it. I will be recommending Juli to all of my friends, and sending everyone I know to Chop Chop.

Just had my hair done at chopchop salon. Darin, the owner, gave me a super cool cut. It was just what I was looking for. Something super hot and classic. I also had my highlights done with a colorist named Troy. This was one of the only times I asked for something subtle and it didn't come out looking too over the top. In a word, Perfect. This guy knew exactly what I wanted. He said it would last six months. I will be back way before then.I highly recommend both of them. The salon also has a very cool and unpretenous vibe about it. Not like Bev. Hills at all. Beware the parking though. Make sure you ask the front desk for a timer so you don't get a ticket.

If you're like me, extremely attractive and in need of a decent haircut, fear no more. Thy (pronounced like tea) is the woman to handle the job. I've been using her for my styling needs for over 3 years, and I can't say that she's ever left a single hair out of place! Visit ChopChop and ask for Thy, you won't be disappointed and you'll have enough dough leftover to buy a couple of hotdogs down the street at Pinks!

If you go to Chop Chop, make sure to get your hair cut by Thy. She is the best hair stylist in all of LA. I've been to salons from Bev Hills to Melrose and no one touches the techniques of Thy. Plus, Chop Chop is an amazing setting as it pairs as an art gallery so the decor is ever changing. The owner, Darin, personally chooses each artist to represent and the art changes monthly, so you'll always experience something new when your there. Chop Chop is THE place to go for hair!

Today was my first trip to Chop Chop, upon a friends recommendation, and I plan on making it my regular salon. The atmosphere is bright and lively with current music playing in the background and a nice spread of modern art and music magazines situated in the lobby. The staff is young, friendly, and dare i say highly attractive. Most salons make me a little uneasy with the air of pretension, this place was different, the desk staff and stylists seem really at ease and happy to be there.

My stylist's name was.. well she had two names used interchangeably.. Amy and Dylan.. weird right. But this short brunette with a modern twist on a bob was one of the best stylists I have ever had. She took my basic idea of what i was looking for and produced a cut well beyond my expectations; furthermore, she has a glowing personality and is a natural and easy conversationist.. If she is available I highly recommend her chair.

are you looking for someone special, someone who will fulfill your fantasies, yet treat you with respect? if you are ready to enter a life long, monogamous relationship, and enjoy all the rich rewards it brings, come here. i have been with darrin birchler for some ten thousand years, and in that time (actually 17 years) i have never even touched another hair cutter. so deft with the scissors, so lovely to sit with, so on the pulse of contemporary hair art is this man, i have not once regretted my devotion. i work in the fashion/beauty industry and travel extensively, and am constantly being evaluated by the best in the business. but i toss my perfectly layered hair and strut away, supremely confident that no one can touch me with the cut and color i get at chop chop. i always have complements.
darrin is your man, wether you come in with a picture or do as i do and trust him to instinctually give you exactly what you want.

Thy has been cutting my hair for almost two years and she is, in a word, THE BEST. It takes me an unreasonably long time to trust someone new cutting my hair. I'm very particular and I'm almost always disappointed and hating myself once I leave the shop. Since my first cut with Thy, those days are over! I used to tell stylists exactly what I wanted; hoping to maintain some sense of control. With Thy, I just let her go with her instincts. In probably 25 cuts, I've never regretted putting myself in her capable hands. Go to ChopChop & ask for Thy! (pronounced "Tee")

So ive always had trouble getting a good hair cut. I usually go to some random spot thats seems convenient. By accident , i saw this place. Pulled over, parked and got out. Upon entrance, i was immediately acknowledged. Which was good. Im glad they cut my hair without having made any prior appointment. Thy was the young lady that cut my hair. She knew exactly what i wanted, when i didnt even know, She recommend a product, "Bumble Bumble", which works great with my hair. I like the "I didnt spend time on my hair" look. All i know is ill definetly be making future appointments with Thy.

I simply love this salon! Everybody is cool and knowledgeable and they know the trends before you even see them in Vogue. My stylist is Thy and she is just amazing. I trust her completely with my hair because I know that she has the skills and the sense of style to give me the coolest cut that looks great and fits me perfectly. Whenever I go in, I just ask her what she thinks I should do with my hair and she is always right on. I went from very long to very short hair and have gotten soooo many compliments every time. Not only that, ChopChop also has the best colorist - Joanne. I just love those girls, they are a real find in a city like LA that has so many salons. I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else. Check them out, you will be glad you did!

Thy is the BEST!!! I had long hair and one day decided I wanted a mohawk, so I called a very stylish friend and he told me: Thy is the only person I let touch my hair. I didn't get a mohawk cause she told me my hair wouldn't hold one, but she gave me the doppest short hair ever. That's how good she is. I never got so many compliments in my life. She's been my hairdresser ever since. And every time I get something done, I pass at least 20 cards along, cause people just love it! Even Penelope Cruz was in love with her work! She couldn't stop complimenting my roomate's hair, who, by the way, is another Thy forever client/fan. Everyone that works at Chopchop is EXTREMELY talented, and they treat you like you're a good friend, you become part of the Chochop family.... Love you guys!!!

Originally went here based on the previous City Search reviews. I thought I was taking a gamble, and boy did it pay off. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent staff.

I attempted to lighten my hair on my own and decided after my feeble attempt I needed professional help to fix. My appointment was with Troy who did an amazing job with my nightmare orange hair. He's fun and fantastic and now I have the perfect color. I also saw Helen who gave me the cutest cut with the little bit of direction I gave. She knew what would work for me and my style. Helen babe - you're the best!! Troy - you're the man!! Thanks guys. I'll definitely be back.

I have never come out of a salon with such a high as I did this last weekend. I researched far and wide until I found Darin at ChopChop. He is better than I thought possible. His staff are great as well. Everyone was sweet and talkative, and Darin really REALLY knows what he's doing. He spent almost two hours on my haircut, but it went by really fast. I really don't think there is anything in LA that compares to the style, ambience and value ChopChop provides. Simply excellent.

Aimee is an amazing colorist! I gave her very little direction and she was able to put together the perfect look for me, exactly what I invisioned! Her highlights look so natural and blend extremely well together. If you need color or highlights, I definitley recommend you give Aimee a visit!

That's what I said to my girlfriend when she told me I had to get my haircut by "Her Guy" That was 6 mo. ago, and since then I've had two haircuts from Darin, i thought the first cut was awesome, but he out did himself again on the second, i can't belive that this is the first time in 28 yrs. that my female co-workers and friends continually complement my hair. Thanks D

I have one reason everyone should go to Chop Chop.....and her name is Helen! She was my hair stylist when I lived in LA, and I would recommend her over anyone I've ever been to....ever!!! She has the talents to make everyone look and feel great. The salon is fun and simple with great music and good service. The other stylists are also fun and fashionable. Everyone that leaves the salon looks great. The prices are high, but worth it. Their product line is quality and the hair cuts I've received are to die for.

Got my first cut here from the owner, Darin. Never had anyone take such care with a cut! He asked me a ton of questions about how much time I want to spend on styling, checked out how my hair fell (cowlicks and such), asked me how I wanted it parted. Then, gave me the coolest, edgiest shaggy bob--exactly what I've always wanted and NEVER gotten from any other stylist. Took his time and cut the back perfectly (wet) then cut the front dry. Showed me different ways to style it form very "punky" to more conservative. Also NO pressure to buy products or get additional services, unlike many other salons. Just a fabulous experience--a superb bargain at $100 for a cut that looks like those Beverly Hills jobs you'd pay triple the price for--and without the snotty attitude so many of those shops exibit. All the employees are super friendly--and even give you coffee or tea in real china cups or glass tumblers. Not to mention cool art on the walls, too. I am certain to be a return customer--I feel like I finally found "The Salon" for me after much trial and error. Hooray!

PROS: Talented stylists who treat regular folks like stars!
CONS: None.

Got a cut from Darin and he outdid my wildest expectations. Asked a lot of questions BEFORE cutting a strand. Then gave me the shaggy, edgy bob other stylists had always told me I could never have! He's an artist with the scissors who creates cuts that can be styled from wild to mild with just a flick of the comb. The salon's atmosphere is trendy yet friendly--a great place for all types of people. Considering the superb quality prices are VERY reasonable--about a third of what you'd pay at an upscale Beverly Hills salon--and without the "not our kind of people" vibe those places so often exude when regular folk walk in the door.

not only did the salon remember who i was the second time i went in, they remembered exactly how i like my iced tea. i followed my styist kate over from her previous salon because she's the only one who knows how to cut my hair the way i like it. but, at the same time she adds that little something extra that only kate knows how to do. i must say, i get extra long looks from the ladies every time i'm out after a trim!! no one else takes as much pride in her work and goes that extra mile to make her clients feel so good about themselves than kate!! viva la kate!!!!

kate has been my stylist for 7 years. i followed her over from her last salon and thank god she moved to chop chop. the vibe is super mellow and there's always new art on the wall every time i come in. my girlfriend says the colorists can do color like no other but i say kate can cut like edward scissor hands can sculpt ice...or hedges. you name it! the girl is dope.

oh ya, get your hair washed by pooja

oh my god, Danny is the most incredible stylist ever! Not only do you leave his chair feeling like a new person, but watching him work on your hair is like watching a sculptor in his studio. The attention put into detail and satisfaction is phenomenal! There is good energy oozing out of every person in the salon down to every corner of the place. The ambiance makes it an excellent way to pamper yourself. A perfect get away in the the heart of l.a.

i followed my stylist here when she moved. the facility is fine but the cuts are outstanding. the prices are reasonable too. i can assure, that bad review is an outlier.

was i insane to go to a brand new salon, with whom i've had no prior experience to cut off more than 20" of my hair? you bet. darren, simply put, kicks ass. i've had my hair cut at every price range and skill level there is....and this cut is THE best cut and style i've ever had. he spent time with me while i tried to figure out if we cut it all off...or not....without any pressure or rush. all my girlfriends come out of there looking super hot too. if you want to be hit on by strange...make that CUTE men that love your hair, right in front of your boyfriend, go see darren. i went from witchy-poo-sit-on-it-because-it's-so-long hair to stop-flipping-your-supermodel-hair-around-you're-making-me-jealous all in one sitting with darren. not pretentious, super nice, very supportive, good listeners, beautiful space...and NO snotty attitude.

I've been a client of Helen's for almost 6 yrs... I was so glad that I was able to track her down at her new digs, Chop Chop Salon. I must say that I've never been disappointed by any haircut that Helen's given me, whether it be a more classic 'do with clean lines or a more creative style that I happened to see in a magazine and wanted for myself. Whatever the style, Helen's managed to make it work for me (and trust me, with my hair type, that's not easy)!! I've recommended her to many friends/co-workers and they were also thrilled with their cuts and have remained loyal clients. If you're looking for a new stylist, Helen's definitely the one to go to!

Helen was great! She's beautiful, funny and can work miracles with her scissors. She gave me a new look and I love it! The salon is great also, clean, spacious and has an awesome decor. Loved the experience and I'm definately going to be a regular.

Darin is a genious with hair! I've been seeing him for a couple of years now and he's never done me wrong. He does great short cuts and also really sexy long hair. The salon is very upscale with a down to earth vibe. Chop Chop is also a gallery so scope the walls for some great local artist's work. The staff is friendly and very attentive. They also give a discount for KCRW card.

Darren is an amazing stylist. I have long hair and have too often gotten it all cut off. He listened to what I wanted and my haircut is the best I've ever had. The space is beautiful and all the people who work there are so fun and polite. This is an LA gem!!!

Imagine you step into a dear friends' fabulous, airy loft-complete with artistic and creative stylists who listen and are sensitive to giving you a great look, rather than imposing on you the 'latest' look.

The hardwood floors and skylights enhance a serene Zen-like space. The gallery part has rotating installations from young artists-that range from thought provoking, interesting and sublime.

I love this space, even if I'm not having my color done by Roberta, or getting the 'Best Cut' in LA by Darin, I just like to pop in, say hello and read their latest magazines!
