Chess & Burman - Los Angeles, California, United States

Mar 07, 2010 - Haleh is amazing. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that I found her. She saved my hair. I have curly hair that started becoming straighter and straighter after years of coloring. Last year I just got so fed up with the dryness, frizz, and lack of curl that I just stopped going to my hairdresser for 4 months and just let my hair grow out while I found someone better. The first time I went to Haleh I explained to her that I was no longer happy with my hair, it didn't curl anymore and it didn't look good. She took the time to listen to me vent and then explained that my hair was very damaged and over processed from all of the color. She told me she could get it back to my original hair color and healthy again, which is exactly what I wanted. It was going to take some time and patience, but it was all worth it. My hair has grown out now, although it is very short because I asked her to cut off the last few straight/damaged pieces of my hair. It looks fabulous now and it's back to normal. Haleh doesn't push products on you or any services you may not want. She wants your hair to be healthy. Most hairdressers would rather color your hair and have you come in for a touch up every 6 weeks, regardless of the health of your hair. (I even had one hairdresser tell me my natural hair color was ugly so that I would keep coloring it. That isn't to say she won't color your hair but she will make sure it remains healthy and will inform you about the possibility of damage.) She understands the needs of your hair and is very talented. She knows how to cut curly hair, long or short. I am amazed at how great my haircut looks because no other hairdresser has ever been able to make my hair look this good curly. (Most cut it as if it were straight and then it would just look OK when I'd curled it.) Finally, she cuts my boyfriends hair and does a fabulous job every time. I cannot recommend Haleh enough. She saved my hair. She is a MUST for anyone with curly hair.
