I LOVE my results with Gina and Patty! Gina was super friendly and understanding when it came to the color I was looking for and ensuring it matched my color palette; awhile, preserving the integrity of my hair. With her expertise and guided suggestions I left with hair I never knew I needed. I had plans on going lighter, but I love my hair so much I want to maintain it with Gina for a while. Although, it’s my first time here I fully trust Gina and can’t wait to explore more with my hair with her. Patty was the one to cut my hair and I got exactly wanted! Despite, my haircut happening near closing time she took her time with me which I appreciate whole heartedly (I’ve experienced being rush out on a handful of occasions). She is also very friendly. I expect more cuts and trims from her in the near future:)

Lenny and his team are AMAZING…….I feel it’s a family and everyone helps each other!!!!!!! Sorry to run on but L Salon is the place to go………

As usual, I love my haircut! However, I am always disappointed to see people at L. Salon wearing balaclavas/ neck gaiters. These are not adequate protection against COVID-19 for either the person wearing one or for other people. I hope you will make a rule requiring everyone to wear a mask and not a neck gaiter. Some people complain that behind-the-ear masks irritate them and say they cannot wear them all day long. I sympathize. However, it is possible to buy masks that can be secured over-the-head. (Of course, you cannot get a haircut wearing one of these masks, but they are an alternative for employees.) One company that makes such very comfortable masks is Beau Ties, Ltd: https://www.beautiesltd.com/collections/face-coverings?_=pf&pf_pt_product_type=Over-The-Head%20Face%20Mask. There are other companies that make such masks, too.

I love Maria. She’s great and has been my hairdresser for years. Prices went up, a lot. With things tougher for people nowadays I don’t think it’s right as much as I know you all need to make a living. Consider a gradual increase? I Paid 302.99 for tint and highlights,. Its gone up from last time and it still does not include a blow dry? Really ? Thanks for asking for my feedback.

About 15 years ago I moved to the Southbay and tried to find a salon closer to me that could do a good job on my hair but I never was able to find a salon that met my standards. So I literally get in my car and just know that I need to spend half the day to get my hair done, but it’s worth it!!! I see Maria for my color and cut, but all the stylists are great!

I never knew this and that is a testament to Lenny. If something works…..do not change it!!!

I’m blown away by every element of my extensive visit to Stanford’s Spine Center today, from the Pre-Questionnaires I filled out on-line ahead of the visit, to the entry people and process, to the person who took me to a changing room, the imaging tech who did x-rays snd so kindly, clearly explained the process and let me see the outcomes, to the lovely, professional nurse who led me to the clinical room, did my further intake questionnaire, to the fabulous Resident Dr. George B(xyz), and the truly amazing, outstanding Dr Hu - who explained everything including such interesting reasons why for my condition, filling in the backstory she could surmise of the last 55 years of my back history since my spinal fusions at ages 13 snd 15. Astounding!! It was such a fascinating and enlightening visit much less such a wonderful experience. It made me so very impressed with Stanford, snd I’m so grateful Ni’s to live nearby,and have this baseline of my condition at age 70, really appreciating the relief of knowing I would be in the care of such stellar medical staff in future should I ever need more help. Thank you, thank you Stanford for attracting such wonderful people, designing such efficient, easy-to-use, time-saving yet thorough processes, and creating such excellent building in which to make approach, entry and movement inside the building so easy:)
