I'm not one to write reviews or pay mind to them. I went her because I love "Keeping up the the Kardasians". I've been reading her blogs and saw they went here. So, I felt if anyone as critical as they are go here it must be good. The stylist were very nice. I felt they listened to me. Ended up get the Brazilian Blowout and a haircut. They were right the Brazilian Blowout Changed My Life. I used to spend 90 minutes blowing out my hair, now I'm ready in less than 30 min. sometimes I don't even blow it out! I used to not swim when I was at a party - get my hair wet. On Memorial weekend I got my hair wet! This is a big thing for me. Thanks guys!

Pros: Friendly stylist

Cons: hidden

I went to see the owner Frank because I love how he makes Kim, Klohe, and Kourtney Kardasian's hair. I have long dark hair and was so relieved he did not try and make me add "Blonde" highlights.

I thought he was very professional and not an "in-your-face" type of stylist. I loved his assistant, Molly.

My highlights looked great. My cut and blowout was what I expected... I looked like Kim in the carl's jr add (which he did).

I really felt taken care of and special by him and his staff, even though I'm just an average Jane.

I used to have a great hair stylist, that no longer works here. It was worth the price when she was there, but I'm a bit hesitant to pay that much testing out new stylists. Good atmosphere.

This place is nice, a little too snooty for me but what do you expect for a high class salon? Very modern atmosphere and artsy...but a little too pricey for me.

the owner brought someone over to style my hair which i never asked for, then had the audacity to charge me for it. i was so shocked i just paid it but i should have said something

the owner only cares if he thinks you are important enough to spend time with.

seemed really arrogant and spent about 3 minutes doing my highlights and made his asst do most of the work and checking.

my highlights were only average. have had my hair done at much better places for much less

the atmosphere here both in looks and attitude is cold

on the plus side, parking is great, good location near the 10 freeway and can browse the shops nearby afterwards

Allure really came through on their top salon rating this time! ?Frank Studio is a beautiful, open space, and they made me feel at home as soon as I walked in the door. I had the pleasure of having Sean James as my stylist . He was fantastic. He clearly knows his "hair" and what works for you as an individual-- I definitely felt catered to the entire time. Not only is Sean super friendly but the entire salon team were close (something you don't see very often, for sure!)

I met Frank through a friend at the Gym. I was thinking of going to him and I know I was impeding on his private time, which I hate to do. Its like asking a Doctor at a party to make a diagnosis... So, I made an appointment at his salon to have a consultation. Thought that would be the correct thing to do. I went in and he was so attentive to what I was telling him. He knew exactly what I wanted. I knew I could not afford to do everything with him and he made sure I was in the best hands for what I could afford. I had Ken do my color, which was amazing and affordable. Then I had Frank do my hair cut. I just felt so great when I left. I really felt like I looked the best ever. Everyone was amazing. Thank you for making me feel good.

I just want to say thank you to Frank and his staff. It has taken me years to get my husband away from that $12 barber hair "chop shop" . He finally went into Frank to get his hair cut. I know he did not want to pay the $$$ but it was going to be the couch or the bed... his choice. Frank gave my husband the best hair cut. My husband looked like a hot movie star. Thank you for making him look so great, and giving him executive service, I've told you in person thank you but I needed to do more. XXXXOOO

I walked out looking so amazin, I needed to rush home change out of my yoga gear and get dressed up so I didn't waste this amazing feeling. The service was amazing the place was modern and so clean. Frank was so sweet and made me feel special. His assistant Karina was so attentitive. ALLURE's write up was spot on! I had the best 4th of July ever cuz I felt like a queen! I got so many coodos on my color! WOW.

I love this place! It is my one stop Beauty/Wellness/Hair place. I just love how I can get everything done in one visit, no driving around all day searching for parking... paying for parking. I just go there and get it all done. And they are all great at what they do. First of the best waxer EVER is Germana. She is from Brazil and uses her own home made honey wax--- you can eat it the wax thats how natural it is. No pain and she is so professional, I felt like I was at my doctors office how sterile and clean everything was! Amazing. Then there is Dr. Anne Cooper she gives the best facials and she is a nutritionist/Chiropractor! I have the occasional acne and she has helped me control this. And Chantal who does my brows...man she is hot. I get my extensions (yes I'll admit to the fake hair) done by Michele. She is so fast! She does all the girls from Danity Kane. The quality of the hair is great and no one can tell that I have them. I'm never in pain and my hair never falls out. Then I go to Frank for my color & cuts. He is truly amazing. My hair looks like I have natural blonde hair (cuz I don't, trust me I don't). First he cuts wet with his scissors and then he blowdrys my hair out and further sculpts with his razor. Truly unreal, a true artistl! When I was in there last I saw Gwenith P. and I swear my color looked like hers. Everyone is so nice and attentive. I have never gotten attitude there. I'm always accommodated when I need an appointment. A loud shout out to FRANK STUDIO for making me look HOT!

I LOVE MY HAIR!!!!!! It is not something I have ever said before but, WOW!!! First off I walked in the door shamefully, due to the currant state of my hair. I thought OK they will have me here for 5 hours and it will probably cost me upwards of my mortgage but the price of beauty is "priceless". I sat down with Frank, himself and he calmed my fears instantly. Within 2 hours my mess of a mop was shiny and ready and worthy of a hair commercial! The price was less than I thought and the service across the board was great. I have found my guy and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!! I always felt small when I went in to a new salon but all my worries are gone now. I LOVE FRANK!

Frank is amazing! My blonde hair never looked better and an amazing cut. I mean my color looked like it was when I was a kid! I have been looking at all the Magazines and when I saw Calista Flockhart's color, I needed to go to the guy that does them. And when I saw Emma Rosum's new look and it was due to Frank. I new it was time. I had the best service there, the staff was down to earth not like those Beverly Hills places. And during these economic times, they were very sensitive and willing to help me. Frank was so attentive and nice. Definitely a place I will call home now.

My name is Barbara Wintroub, owner of Retrofit Pilates in Santa Monica. I recently received a facial from Dr. Ann Cooper, D.C.. It was wonderful! She has marvelous hands. Her space is serene, peaceful and calming. I felt a million times better when I left. If you are looking for a place to relax and take a deep breath.....I highly recommend giving Ann a try. You won't regret it.

a friend of a friend recommended me to frank.. I went with high expectations, which turned out to be a mistake.
first of all I was the only person there, red flag number one. then I had to wait a full half hour for frank to finish chatting on his cell phone for my appointment to start. he did my cut and color which was mediocre at best. If you like chunky stripey high lights and a stylist that talks incessantly about himself then frank studio is the place for you.
oh, and when I got my bill it was over $400!!

I went to the salon when it first opened a few years ago and got a really great haircut from the stylist that was recommended but was put off by the rest of the staff......made me really reluctant to come. However, after making multiple trips to various salons in the LA area, I couldn't find a hair cut as good as I had at Frank's. Anyways, went back recently, the prior stylist was no longer there, but got a new one.

Had a great cut and color and this time around everyone was really nice. Would recommend this place to people.

I took my son to their kids' salon in Brentwood after hearing rave reviews from friends. Truly the first hair cut my son had where he did not whine and it did not have to be fixed. The place was designed for kids (skate ramp desk, graffiti on the walls...). My son will only go to Frank 18 now. While having casual conversation with my son and the stylist (Kimberly), she mentioned the other Frank (over 18) salon. Long story short, I was given a 15% discount to try their other salon. When I booked the appointment, the nice receptionist (Nancy) suggested I book in with Frank for a consultation (yes, the one you see in all the magazines!) who would refer me to a stylist. I met with Frank who was very kind. He took the time to ask me what I like/dislike about my hair, what I do on a daily basis and how I style my hair. I decided I wanted him to do my hair but was concerned about the price. He suggested I have him do my hair first and that the initial is always more expensive than the maintenance and that thereafter he would have another stylist he trained take care of me. I will just say that I have not been naturally blond for years and when I walked out of the salon, I not only looked like a natural blond but I swear my hair was in better condition than ever before. My husband, who never comments on my hair, said he loved the color and cut. The initial price was worth every penny. I returned this past week for maintenance and had another great experience with Frank and his assistant. I prefer during the week as it is not as busy plus I kept my pre-booked appointment for 15% off! (Yes, they have pre-booking discounts!). Frank suggested I try his brow artist, Elisha, which I did and she is great. On this visit, I saw Dayna Devon walk out (Frank does her hair!!). They do not have an attitude, it is a great relaxing place where you will walk out with awesome hair. My husband is going to see Frank for his next cut.. My advice? Drop the kids' off at sc

PROS: Pre-booking discount; great cut and color (plus facials)
CONS: it is not cheap but ladies, aren't we worth it?? (think PREBOOK!)

Very relaxed place. I went there while it was fairly empty, and they were very nice and attentive. I think other places are better for a better price, however. Nothign spectacular about the hair trim I got here, except that it was a very very relaxed and non-hassled experience. Tipped well since they were so nice and we had great conversation. Recommended for those lazy hazy weekend days.

I was charged about $100 to have my hair trimmed and a blow dry. Besides the long wait and the overcharge, the service was extremely poor.
