Shushan has been my hairdresser for a long time now and I never go home without being happy. Well worth your money. I get compliments everytime she has done my hair. My cut is always perfect and my colors are absolutely fabulous. I have plenty of friends that try to do it themselves or ask their hairdressers but they never come close. I trust Shushan's suggestions and recommend her highly. Try her out and you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Fast, perfect color, perfect cut

Cons: none

I've been going to Shushan at Candolyn's for about 9 years now. I have fine, slightly wavy hair, and Shushan is the first stylist who has figured out how to give me a cut that gives my hair body, shape, and bounce. We switch it out sometimes when I need a change, but it always works and grows out well. The couple of times I've cheated on her in the past (because I was out of town), I've always regretted it. She has a real instinct for how to make hair look good. She's also great at accommodating my last-minute requests for appointments.

She had warned me away from various treatments I thought would help my hair like perms, etc., but recently she suggested I try the Brazilian Blowout. I was a little skeptical, but I trust her absolutely so gave it a try. The first time we tried it, it made my hair too flat for the first week, but after that, I had sleek body every day without any styling at all. It lasted 3 months -- the second time she did it, she started a little away from my roots, which solved the first-week flatness problem. I've never in my life had so many good hair days. Shushan is amazing!

10 years ago when my family relocated to Los Angeles, my mother and I needed to find a new hair dresser who could handle our unique texture of hair (my fair is very fine and curly not your average african american hair causing some confusion to other salons). Since my mom was working in the California Plaza in Downtown at the time we decided to try Candolyn's for its convenience. By some grace of God Shushan was assigned to do our hair and my hair has never looked better since! Even when I made the mistake of going to someone else for one of my relaxer treatments (i figured a black salon would do a better job....BOY WAS I WRONG!) which caused my hair to break off, Shushan knew exactly what to do. Not only did she help restore my hair's length, but it is now extremely healthy and longer than it has ever been (i always wanted to grow my hair out!). In fact my hair is so healthy now that it can tolerate highlights which Shushan did a great job on (i have had many compliments and i was even stopped on venice beach by someone wanting to know where i got my hair done!). I have just started switching from relaxers to the brazilian blowout treatment, which i LOVE. Seriously, if you want gorgeous hair go to Candolyn's and request Shushan to be your stylist! Not only is Shushan extremely talented at what she does, but she is extremely personable as well! I can honestly say that she is more than a hair dresser at this point and is now one of my friends.

Moral of the story: if you want gorgeous hair and a pleasant experience go make an appointment with Shushan today!!!

Oh! and I forgot to mention, when Shushan shampoos your hair, she gives a nice little head massage as well! That alone makes the visit worth it :-)

Pros: convenient to downtown, great stylist name Shushan

Cons: inconvenient if live far from downtown, but oh so WORTH IT!!

I have been going to Candolyn's for over 8 years now, and I can't imagine going anywhere else! My hairstylist - Shushan, is AMAZING!! My husband can testify to my reaction when I went to get haircuts and color elsewhere...I was NEVER happy! Always either too short, or uneven, and the color was never the right shade or my hair would be fried! I can honestly say that ever since I went to Shushan, I have never been happier. She really listens to her clients to ensure they get what they want and what suits them best! I love that she is very good about telling you if what you think is a nice look....probably wont look very good on you! lol!! She is really A TRUE PROFESSIONAL!! Not the mention the location of the salon....PERFECT if you live or work in the downtown area and are short on time! I've never had a problem coming in for a haircut during my lunch hour. Shushan and the rest of the Candolyn's staff definitely deserve the 5 starts AND more! ;)

I have been going to Shushan for about 8 years and she does a great job with the cut and color. I have curly hair and she knows just how to cut it to bring the best out of my curls. I highly recommend her if you need a stylist in the downtown area.

I have been going to this salon for almost 2 years now to have my hair cut and colored by Shushan. She is really wonderful! I actually drive from Santa Monica to downtown just to have her color my hair (her specialty). She knows how to get the color just right and uses good products. She listens to what you want and does a great job styling the cut. I always leave this place feeling like I'm having my best hair day! I think she is the most popular stylist there since she always seems to be busy- so make an appointment first. Prices are pretty reasonable for cut and color and you can park in the building's garage (although you'll still have to pay about $4 after your validation).
If you are looking for a professional, high quality yet reasonable place to get your hair done, go here and see Shushan!

I have never gotten so many compliments as I do when Shushan colors or cute my hair. I had a girl come up to me the other night and say "if I were going to go blonde...I would want my hair EXACTLY like yours." That says something. She can get you in and out in a hour and will always make your wants and needs priority. I just love her!

I had my hair styled at Candolyn's because I was visiting my son in L.A. & staying at the Omni. My hair was flat & overly sprayed - not nearly what I would expect for the price & my son hated his haircut. I forgot an expensive sweater & when I called, the receptionist described it & said it would be held. But when I went to pick it up later it was no where to be found.

After doing my research, I decided to do the Brazilian Blowout hair treatment with Shushaun. I absolutely LOVE it! It made my hair feel so soft and it took out the frizz from my naturally curly hair. It is worth the price! I highly recommend Shushaun and the Brazilian Blowout hair treatment.

I just had a lousy experience at Candolyn's Salon. Due to their convenient location, I set up a first-time appointment. As I expected, they set me up with a novice -- who cut hair well, but unfortunately lacked experience in styling. Candolyn herself had to step in. But between the two of them, tons of spray product, hair drying and ironing, my left side had a fabulous curl, but my right side not so much. Naturally, I was upset. They were nice enough to knock off $20 -- but the purpose of my visit was to walk out looking good. I mentioned this to Candolyn as I was paying. She actually said "maybe it just wasn't meant to be." I let her know that I wouldn't be returning. She then said "I don't want you to come back." WOW. I've NEVER written a bad review. But her smart-ass remark inspired me to take the time.

I've been going to Candolyn's for more than 5 years. The recent remodeling has given the Salon an fresh new look. The staff are extremely professional. Shushsan has cut my hair for many years, and she always does outstanding work. It's so convenient for me as I work downtown and usually can get a same day appointment. Yes, I'm a guy and it's a "salon", but a lot of men go here too!

I have been getting my hair done at Candolyn's for a little over a year. Shushaun is amazing! She definitely knows how to do color and a swanky style! As everyone else has said she listens to exactly what you want and I always leave happy! I highly recommend her to anyone!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I went here because it was closer to work and I regret it. I got a haircut from Candolyn the owner of the salon. She gave me short, chunky layers when i asked for long layers and way too much bangs. I had to go to another salon to get my hair and color fix because she had done such a poor job. Beware!

OMG! I have to admit I am a Massage Hog! I travel the world business and pleasure. I have never had such quick relief from my chronic neck and lower back pain. When Daniel said he had 17yrs experience, it instantly showed. He was great! I am sharing him with my husband and my office. His hours are flexible and his rate is great :)

He is the one who had the Classy Boutique @ Candolyn's Salon. I had no idea he was a masseur.

I saw stylist Chris and he was less than perfect. He was a very nice man but was dressed sloppily and I couldn't help but think he would be sloppy with his haircutting. This proved to be true, as I asked for a shorter do and he not only cut my hair uneven but made the layers in front much much too short. The cut isn't horrible but I was charged $50 for something that could have been done at supercuts.

I have been a client of Shushan for over five years.....and a more delightful and talented artist with hair you are going have a hard time finding. She is an excellent colorist and her cuts and styles are fantastic.

As others have said, she listens....but frankly I trust her to do what she feel like doing better than attempting to come up with something I want. Her taste and instincts are unfailing...and she is great to to hang out with.

The salon is a fun place, nicely decorated with friendly people waiting to pamper you.

I have never been less than pleased with my experience there, which...when you think about...is a major accomplishment for anything. With something as subjective and as difficult as hair, once you have found a friend like Shushan and a p-lace like Candolyns...you just stick with it, knowing you will never be disappointed.

I've been having my hair done at Candolyn's for at least two years now. Before that, I was coloring my hair at home using Clairol and other home hair colors. I thought it was cheaper that way, but my hair got all dried out and I was having to color it more & more often!

In desperation, one day I decided to splurge and go to Candolyn's to have it done professionally, and I'm so glad I did! Yes, it costs more up front but in the long run I'm spending way less than before, because the way they do the color, I only have to get it done every couple of months or even three months, rather than a couple of times a month! Plus my hair feels soooo good when I walk out the door!

Shushan is the person who works on my hair and she does an excellent job - in fact, she did my hair for my wedding last year and it looked fabulous!

OveralI I give Candolyn's 5 stars - give them a try! You will get a lot more than what you pay for!

Candolyn's is such a great salon. I love the decor and the staff always make you feel welcome. Everyone always seems to be in a good mood - no sour faces here. :0) I've been a client of Shushaun now for about 6 years and I've never left the salon unhappy. She always does a great job with my color and highlights. I always leave the salon feeling fabulous!

Candolyn's has been a great experience, it is very conveniently located and they are very accommodating in making appointments. Shushan is terrific. She has done the best blond for me that I have ever had and really knows what she is doing. She listens and really just does an all around great job.

I love Candolyn's..it's a great place for a manicure, haircuts and coloring. I especially go for coloring- their Redken specialist, Shushan, is really friendly, gives you honest advice on colors and clearly knows what she's doing. She always goes out of her to prevent hair damage and she's up-to-date on technique! Not to mention that I go there for my 1 hour lunch break and get all my needs met! I highly recommend the place!!

(prices are reasonable)

I've lived in LA for nearly 6 years, and it has taken me almost 5 to find a stylist that I like and can still afford! Shushan (sp?) is a wonderful stylist; she takes extra special care of my curly hair. And (bonus) she knows how to style for those who like to wear it both curly and straight. She crafted the perfect cut for me, listening to all I had to say about what I wanted. She also did a superb job of highlighting it - natural yet not unnoticeable (like the last stylist I saw on Melrose). I love this place; the ambience is nice, the people are kind, and it is completely accessible by public transit.
