I have been to Joseph Lamar Studio twice now and have received nothing but outstanding service from Gabby. I received so many complements on my hair cut the first time I decided to go back again to have her color w/my cut and WOW it looks truly amazing, they use organic hair color and steam it. My hair is so soft today its amazing. I will agree they are a little expensive but its well worth me saving for a trip here. Thank You Gabby. I'm sending the other girls in my office over :)

I'm really surprised with the other review about Nanci. Nanci has been my stylist for more than 15 years now. Too bad, she left Joseph Lamar but I will follow her anywhere she goes. She has put extensions on my hair for over 5 years and I love them each time. Frankly, I wouldn't let anyone else do my hair other than Nanci. She's a true professional and only wants the best for her clients. Nanci also does a fabulous color & weave. I get compliments on my hair each time. I've referred clients to Nanci and they've all been happy. She's worth every penny!

About a month ago I got extensions put in by Kathy Babakhanyan at Joseph Lamar. Let me tell you...she is awesome! Not only is she sweet and attentive to what I wanted and my concerns, she also did a fantastic job on my glue-keratin extensions. I've had them put in before by someone else and had pieces fall out within a week. Not with Kathy...she did an excellent job putting them in. I

've also gone to her in the past for haircuts and color/highlights, so I highly recommend her! She will not let you leave unsatisfied!

Pros: Very attentive, skilled and knowledgeable

Cons: Avg Price, but totally worth it

.

Kathy makes her customers feel special, she listens to what you want, she is honest, and works with her clients to figure out what is best. I have read some of the other reviews here about other stylists in the salon, and I really don't want to comment other than to say, the group seems dedicated, wants their customers to be happy...yes...some of the services are pricey, i.e. extensions...but again, be clear what you want, and what you will receive will be of value.. anyway, thanks Kathy, I love all three haircuts that I have received and I sent a friend in last weekend and she loves her hair too!! and I saw it, what an improvement...4 stars instead of 5 because it can be expensive, but in my case, worth it !!!

Pros: great haircut, color, extensions

Cons: busy place but thats ok

I just had a consult with Nanci Ortega for hair extensions and I scheduled a hair extension appointment with her for next week to apply the hair. A friend of mine mentioned that I should look for any reviews on Nanci and the salon before spending $2000 on hair extensions. Glad I did! It sounds like she gives everyone the same line. My quote was the same as Christina C, right down to her not charging by each extension like the other stylist in the salon! I made sure I read all the reviews before deciding it would be best to cancel my appointment. What made it easy to believe the 2 bad reviews on this stylist was simply reading the reviews from Michele M who posted on Yelp. And Jo M who posted the identical review on Yelp as she did here. Michele raves about Nanci being so fabulous and being her extension extraordinaire for the past 3 years and then goes on and on about how amazing everyone in this salon is...then why did she wait 3 years before posting such inflated review!
In my opinion Michele is trying to hard to promote this salon which is what makes it so obvious that its someone in the salon who wrote the review.

Moving on to the review from Jo M. I have read Christina's review and no where in it does it mention that she was burned. Sounds more like Jo M is the one who needs to get her facts straight and stop fabricating BS reviews!
I will say if I ever need a bikini wax I know where to go now! Now my dilemma is finding a stylist who is truly gifted with extensions!

Nancy is truly as good as it gets for extensions I've had them done at other places for far more money for crappy jobs. She teaches others how to do extensions and her precision in placement and fullness are fantastic. My own hair has never been healthier. I've sent numerous people to her all have loved her. This Christina person is insane. In ten years with Nancy she is the first person I've ever heard complain about Nancy and I am at the salon bi-weekly for services. In fact I drive 10 miles to get to Nancy preferring her over closer salons in Hollywood and Beverly HIlls. I can't imagine scientifically how cold fusion could have "burned" Christina or anyone. Sorry she had a bad experience but she is a vocal minority not a valid source if the majority opinion regarding Nancy's terrific services. Year in year out Nancy is the best in every way.

A very long story but a must read for anyone considering hair extensions from Nanci Ortega!

I recently went in to Joseph Lamar to have So Cap Cold Fusion hair extensions done by Nanci Ortega. I told Nanci I only wanted a few extensions on the sides of my head for fullness.Then we went over cost. Nanci told me all the other stylist charge $10 per extension but she told me she felt it added up to quickly for the client so she charged differently. Nanci told me the first 25 would be $250 the second 25 would be additional $200. After she gave me the quote I reminded her that I only wanted enough hair to make the sides fuller and I did not want too many extensions in my hair. When Nanci finished my hair I went to pay for my service and it was $650! I paid and left not loving my hair and feeling really taken advantage of. The left side of my head was burning and throbbing and I was getting headaches from the extensions. I went back into the salon to have Nanci take a look at my extension to figure out the problem she told me she found the problem and then she used her extension tool and moved several extensions away from my scalp. When I asked her how she moved them away from my scalp without removing them first she told me she melted the bonds and pulled them away from my scalp and that's when I realized that I never got the cold fusion that I asked and payed for in the first place! I left the salon upset with my scalp feeling raw. A few days later with my scalp on fire I had a friend look at the extensions she noticed that on the left side 'the side that was burning" I had 30 extensions very close together and that the extensions were being held on by very few strands of hair and on the right side I only had 20 extensions and they were spaced further apart. At that point I was furious to find out how poorly the extensions had been applied not to mention being over charged! I went back into the salon and asked to speak to the owner. The owner came to the front of the salon and introduced herself as Gabby. I told her the whole story and she apologized for my bad experience in her salon. Then she told me that all her stylist are subcontractors and that they all charge differently so she had no control over the fact that I was over charged but that she would have a talk with Nanci and try to get the the situation resolved. I waited as Gabby went back to talk to Nanci. When she returned she told me to come back at 6:30 that night and Nanci would fix my extensions and make sure that I left satisfied. Gabby told me that she would make sure this matter got resolved. An hour after I left the salon I received an angry phone call from Nanci saying how dare I come into the salon and try to get her in trouble with the owner, I cut her off and told her I would see her at 6:30 and we could resolve this matter then. I showed up at 6:25 for my appointment with Nanci only to find out that she had left for the night! I told the receptionist I had a 6:30 appointment and she gave me Major attitude and told me Nanci didn't think I would show up! I asked the receptionist to have Gabby please call me and then I left. I never received a call from Gabby and after several attempts I gave up! The damages that followed as I had the extensions removed less then a month later is a whole other devastating story!

A must read for anyone considering hair extensions from Nanci Ortega!

Joseph Lamar Salon advertises the SO CAP COLD FUSION method but melts the bonds instead! Nanci Ortega pulled a bate and switch on me and over charged me and damaged my hair! During your consult she'll tell you she does not charge like the other stylist who charge $10 per extension instead she tells you that she charges $250 the first 25 and a additional $200 for the next 25. Make sure you bring a friend to count your extensions when she is done! She charged me $650.00 for 50 extensions that I had to pay another stylist to remove because they were put in so poorly. The damages are another story!

Pros: The salon offers So Cap Cold Fusion Hair Extensions

Cons: You pay for cold fusion and receive melted bonds. Dishonest salon with no integrity!

I have been a loyal customer of Ivan Montero for several years now - he and the rest of the crew at Joseph Lamar are extremely friendly. Be sure to make your desired appointments at least a couple of weeks in advance. They do welcome walk-ins, but if you know who you want, and when you want to go in, its best to make an appointment. Ask for Ivan - he's the best! Parking behind the salon is very limited, and the residential streets have limited parking during the day time. Try to park on Magnolia Blvd. to avoid getting a ticket.

I wouldnt even call these gals hair stylists, they are hair color specialists. I once had my hair dyed and the gal truly destroyed my hair. I went to Joseph Lamar's and came out like a brand new person, you'd never know that 2 days earlier my hair had been destroyed. This is a very trendy shop with parking out front. All stylists are current with haircut trends and color, I wouldnt think of letting anyone color my hair but here. They also carry a variety of hair styling products and are very accomodating in their hours or will stay late if you need something done. Their prices are a little high, but you'll never have to have anxiety wondering if your hair will come out alright or not. I highly recommend them for all hair services, especially coloring or highlighting.

Stylist did not listen to what I wanted done. Every time I went, my hair was dyed blonder and blonder. Stylist would chat on her cell phone while doing my hair! Very expensive. Lots of products to chose from, but overall the service was poor.

PROS: champagne and wine
CONS: Expensive, poor customer relations
