A Salon of Studio City
- Sherman Oaks, California, United States
- Leo Freeman
Jul 10, 2011 - Leo Freeman is an angel sent from God :) She is an amazing person in and out and a true beautician. I drove to her hair studio located in Sherman Oaks from Orange County and plan on doing it frequently.
Okay, let's get directly to my review. Call ahead for directions because it may be a bit tricky to find this hidden gem! Luckily I found a place right on the street where there are meters (which accept MasterCard, Visa and American Express as well as quarters! They also have a parking lot in the back.)
As I walked upstairs and opened the door I felt at ease immediately. It is very zen inspired and earthly with brown, tope and green tones. I know most people would want to know my hair "type". I am multi cultured (mixed with black and European). My hair is mixed between a 3a-3c and it is down to the middle of my back.
First things first - the famous Deva hair cut (I was charged $80). It took her about an hour in a half to cut my hair. Patience is virtue! I showed her a few pictures to let her know what I was going for and she nailed it! She did such a stunning job on my thick curls. I have never had such an amazing hair cut in ALL my years. She then washed my hair using Wen's Fig shampoo/conditioner (which I later purchased as well. She is NOT pushy about selling her products.) She has the DevaCurl Products as well and the Wen Products. She then styled and defused my hair leaving me in tears! (Good ones of course!) I just HAD to give her a hug.
I am without a doubt a new loyal customer. If you are debating the drive, believe me when I say it is BEYOND worth it especially if you have curls that need to be healthy and tended to. Leo is so knowledgable with curly hair and just hair in general as far as healthiness, etc. She is also quite affordable for someone who was personally trained from the owner of DevaChon Salon in NY. Leo is inspirational about hair and is a true artist as far as I am concerned.
Thank you Leo.
