I HAVE WAITED A FEW MONTHS TO WRITE A REVIEW BECAUSE A HAIRCUT CAN ALWAYS LOOK GOOD AFTER IT'S FIRST CUT BUT CHRISTOPHER'S HAIRCUT LOOK EVEN BETTER TWO MONTHS LATER. I WILL MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP TO GET MY HAIRCUT BY CHRISTOPHER AGAIN. BY THE WAY CHRISTOPHER IS A DOLL!

Estilo is the BEST salon EVER! I have been going to Estilo for 2 1/2 years and I will never go anywhere else. The atmosphere is awesome...everyone is super nice and helpful. Before my first appointment, I was a little nervous about what to expect, i.e. would people be pretentious, would I feel uncomfortable, etc... I was so pleasantly surprised. It is such a cozy and happy place and all of the people who work there are wonderful. I've had the pleasure of having my hair cut, colored, and styled by Christopher and Robert. They are both AWESOME! I get the best haircuts, color, and blowouts every single time I go there. I always ask their opinion about cut and color and what would look best with my face shape and skin color and they are both spot on every time. I put my complete trust in their opinion and I have never been disappointed. I have curly, thick, coarse hair and they always make it look great, which is not easy to do. They also give the best blowouts! I feel so glamorous every time I leave the salon...and the blowout lasts for days. Besides being true artists and excellent at their craft, Christopher and Robert are two of the nicest, genuine men I know.

We live in the Caribbean where a good hair stylist is near impossible to find. My daughter set up appointments for both of us, she at Neal George and me with Christopher at Estilo. We wanted to treat ourselves. I lucked out. Christopher gave me the best color I have ever had, hands down, and layered my hair perfectly. I have been wanting the Victoria Secret style bangs for a while and no stylist could pull off what I wanted. Christoper was spot on.
My daughter called us from Neal George crying as they ruined her hair color, Crystal (who I have since heard is no longer there after I complained) left the low lights in her hair too long and it looked like mud. Christopher was extremely sympathetic and offered to fix it as best as he could - already now after hours, he dedicated himself to the impossible task of lightening her disasterous hair bit by bit and making it just what she wanted. My daughter is a perfectionist and he pulled through with flying colors. My daughter was out $275 from the botched hair with Neal George and they would not credit her, just offered her free shampoo samples. My daughter was off to her first semester at college and we can not say thank you enough to Christopher for rescuing her (thus me) from an otherwise disasterous dilemma. I have since returned and enjoyed his perfect golden multicolored hair color work of art he manages on my 50% gray, and I look forward to yet another visit on my way back from New Zealand next month when I come through LAX.
Christopher is also extremely kind and we felt very special. He earned our loyalty!

Everyone has been asking who I go to, well... the secret is out! Julio Romano at Estilo Salon. Not only is Julio talented, but very personable and honest. His assistant Fiona is lovely, attentive and a great compliment to the Estilo team. I gave him complete control and Julio went above and beyond. I would never have felt so amazing as a red-head without him –and let me tell you I get compliments all the time! I highly recommend a visit to one of the best stylist in Los Angeles.

Julio and his team are AWESOME! They are all super friendly, laid back and down to earth! I felt very comfortable because it could be a scary situation, when you aren't familiar with the stylist. The atmosphere in the salon is very welcoming and relaxed. Julio made my hair look amazing! It was over processed and damaged, but he fixed that with his awesome skills. I have gotten a lot of compliments! I love my cut, color and deep conditioning.

Julio Romano and his assistant Fiona are without question a superstar team. I've been Julio's client since the mid 90's and immediately fell in love with his low key vibe, his high style, and his authenticity. As a fashion designer and an art student that meant so much to me, and his lack of pretense really blew me away. He had every excuse to brag but his modesty spoke of his excellent manners. I have gone from long hair to inches short, dark to light, knowing what I want to being really uncertain and needing to be directed, and I can't say I have ever in over a decade walked away from Julio's chair other than feeling beautiful, relevant, and like what I got is perfect for me. I go for blowouts and I get results on the job, I get a cut and I am asked often for his name, and Julio is at the top of his game with constant fashion, teaching, and other professional engagements that really set him apart from other stylists. If you want to experience the best LA has to offer, go to Julio also known as Shampoolio- the original native angeleno. Estilo operates like a family and the staff is fantastic. It doesn't get better. Great products at the salon and very cool informed talents.

Julio is a savory fellow with a true talent! I have long hair and want to keep it that way!!! Although it is fine, thin, dry, frizzy and a little grey ugh! You can't tell, because I have found Julio!*. He is amazing with color and cuts to suit my character. I always leave feeling GRATEFUL and sexy! Estilo is a cozy place to bloom with a charming staff.
Sent from heaven above!!!! She repaired my damaged blonde trashed from previous stylists, to an amazing mane that looks like I stepped out of a hair commercial! I can't say enough about her sweet disposition and fantastic talents. She brighted my highlights while adding softness - my hair never felt better & so do I. I also made a wonderful friend after I found her ;)
THANK YOU PHILIP CARREON @ ESTILO SALON!! I just had the new Brazilian Blowout process done to my curly kinky hair and I love the results! No more damaging hair relaxer ! Now my hair looks silky smooth with soft curls.

One of the most amazing stylists in town, Philip Carreon, is now doing Brazilian blowouts. This is NOT the scary formaldehyde (sp?) process I read about a few years ago. It is a completely new semi-permanent method of straightening hair without losing body and you can still go curly with hot rollers, irons, etc. when you want.
Philip is, as expected, terrific at it. I trust him completely with my hair and was not disappointed. My hair is frizz-free, AND shinier and softer than it's been in years.

I got the Brazilian blowout with Sylvie a month ago and ever since it's been weeks of the best hair-days ever!!! My hair was fr izzy and wild with a mind of it's own but if you ever want to be able to blowdry your own hair so it LOOKS like you stepped out of the salon- get the Brazilian!!!! I can't say how much I love it and Sylvie!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE..........
First lets start here......this kid knows how to cut hair! I give him a general idea of short or not so short and he takes it from there.
I've never been dissapointed, every cut grows out perfect and looks good for weeks. I never thought there was much to mens hair until I had a cut from him.
In fact I'm due for a Loera as I like to call it.
For all you guys out there, if you want a precision cut that is totally current and cool check Christopher out.
Estilo's a fun place to hang out for an hour or so and Christopher is straight up the best cutter in town!
Comming to Estilo for years now but it never fails to make my day. Everybody is very positive,light-hearted and you can tell they all love each other. The warmth and kindness is surpassed by the level of talent there. I have been to acouple of the stylist including Frankie, Afshin and Courtney and each time I walk away a new woman. Also new to the scene is Afshin's elixers which are a great pick-up even after I've left the salon. They refresh with a mist of natural essencial oils and spring water- perfect even in the bath to make me feel like a goddess!!! He makes them in orange, rose and peppermint to fit every scent. I just love comming there and thought I would leave them a great note to show my appreciation. Thank you guys, look forward to my next appointment!!!!

I have been coloring my hair black for 13 years. I wanted to get back to my natural hair color desperately without damaging my hair. My natural hair is a light brown with natural highlights. Sylvie was able to do what no other hairstylist has managed to do for my hair. She made my hair look natural and beautiful without damaging my hair. The most amazing part was she did it in one day! I would recommend her time and time again. I feel great and she made my hair look amazing!

SYLVIE is amazing as is the brazilian blowdry! i love love love it! If you have curly or frizzy hair, this is for you. When you first get it done it is pin straight, but then after you wash it, it drys more natural (with body, but still straight and no frizz) . I havent tried blowdrying my hair yet, but i am sure it will be fabulous (and quick!). This is going to make my life so much easier.
Sylvie is also a great haircutter, stylist and colorist...
Go check it out!

So, my hair was trashed. I hate to blame it on my past clippers, but I think I went to too many haircutters who had many disparate ideas. Frankie saved my a-- and my hair. He was able to analyze all the remnants of about six haircuts and make sense out of it. Each ""transitional"" haircut looked fabulous. He did about three of them and now we are almost at the ""real haircut,"" but it looked great all along the way. Frankie's color is IMPECCABLE. I've had a million people do my color and nobody has done my base or my highlights so beautifully. Other things I LOVE about Frankie are that he is really sweet, smart and funny. Sometimes I like to talk while having my haircut and sometimes I hate to talk while having my haircut. Frankie is VERY perceptive and reads your needs/wishes. Also he is accessible if you have a hair question or a hairy hair question and has been helpful and generous and knowledgable about hair products and also about self hair care.

Kristin is the BEST stylist I've ever had!! Her haircuts are precision perfect and, since I have natural curl, she's a rare find. She takes great care to make it a perfect cut and style, honestly!!!! So many stylists have ruined my hair with perms that I DID NOT NEED. Thank God I found this girl and she has the sweetest personality. I love her!!!! Take my word, you are missing out until you go to Kristin.
