Go Get the Brazilian Keratin Treatment - It Rules!!.
Circa 92 is fantastic!!! It’s difficult to find someone who really understands how to cut, color and style very curly hair, but Lela and her staff at Circa are serious pros.
Not sure why other readers have had issues with simple hair curly or styling. I had my hair curled for a wedding and they did a great job, plus the curls lasted for 3 days!
I tried the Brazilian Keratin Treatment and my hair has never looked better. It’s soft, manageable and easy to maintain. It's not as harsh as traditional straightening/relaxing processes and it lasted for 3 months. It’s the perfect solution for the hot summer weather when you don’t want to spend 15 mins blow-drying your hair.
They also recommended the Davines line of products and they are fantastic. This product line is so good, that now I have to buy Davines products for my husband too.
If you’re looking for a great salon, go to Circa 92. You won’t be disappointed.
stay away. I wanted my curled for a wedding I was in (not an updo, just curled). I called to check the price and the woman at the front desk told me it would be $30. She also told me the salon didn't open till 10am but she would get me in at 10. Turns out the salon opened at nine and my stylist tried to charge me $80. I almost threw up when I heard this. My curls where terrible looking and completely came out within two hours so I ended up completely redoing my hair myself.....i should have just done that in the first place.
Horrible, Horrible service. I was a walk in client, new to the area, and Rachel helped me with a haircut. WOW, I have never seen anyone with so much anger in her, you can tell she is just not a happy person......in resault she took it out on my hair! I look like a peekock! I do not recommend her, she has a horrible attitude and it seems like she has no idea what she is doing,,,seems like you have to catch her on a rare good mood day. Also, the receptionist Dominique......wow again she messed up my appointment 2 times, what type of people does the owner hire here??????
YES, I AM A REAL CLIENT. Meredith has been my hair stylist @ Circa 92 for 4 years now. My color is so natural no one knows that it's not my real color--it's so great that people think I'm 15 years younger than I am! Lela and her staff are wonderful! Everyone is friendly and make you feel like a part of their family. We've celebrated births and birthdays and was part of their filiming on Split Ends, the reality show. The salon is decorated in a minimalist mode - open ceilings, ac pipes and great art. Each month a new artist is featured. If you don't feel the stylist is making a connection with you, all you have to do is mention it and they'll direct you to somenone else in the salon - no egos here to worry about. They care about their clients and satisfying their needs.
BEST CUT AND COLOR IN OC TO DATE!.
I have been to a couple different salons in OC that are all way overpriced and way over-weighted. I was gonig to one particular one in Newport Beach off of Bristol street for a couple years and it was not that they were particulary bad at what they did, they never did what I asked and always hurried me out the door.
At Circa 92 they listened to me, made recommendations and gave me the best cut and color I think I have ever had. The colorist, Michelle, was incredible! She took me the exact blonde I wanted without any brass! I would recommend this salon to all my friends and family.
Great for curly hair, great experience!.
I am new to the area and was searching for a salon that could "handle" my curls. I went to my previous stylist for 6 years so I was really hesitant to find a new salon. I am particular about my cut and I get my hair relaxed, which requires someone who knows both. I ended up with the owner, Lela, and could not be happier with my cut and the relaxer. She really listened to me and you could tell she was very experienced with relaxers. It all came out great and the price was fair.
I have seen the reviews from people who have not been to the salon. I have been there in person and this is a great salon and a "real" review.
This isn't a review, just some thoughts I'd like to share.... Ok, so this isn't a review, but I just wanted to say that the reviews for this salon look very suspicious. I learned this lesson the hard way with Salon Papillon (on PCH). There were tons of glowing reviews for Jilla, the owner, she jacked up my color very badly (I asked for very cool toned ashy blonde, I got dark orange that looks like the color of a penny), and then I realize that she and her friends must have written all the reviews. I am now very weary of salons that seem to have a strong internet presence (notice all the responses from the owners). Also, all the positive reviews seem waaaaay too over the top and none of them list ANY cons. No matter how great the salon, there is always at least one con.
Perfect Vibe at this Salon. I LOVE it here! I used to live across the street, but moved back to Los Angeles a while ago. I know some good stylists in L.A. and I still come back to Lela at Circa92. The care and attention to detail for each cut and color is greatly appreciated. I am always happy when I leave. The atmosphere is relaxing and low key - and the rotating art on the walls are super cool.
Best cut n color. I've avoided getting hair cuts for years now. I'm a young guy that like's a modern cut but I've got really difficult hair to deal with. Most salons I'd been to in the past didnt know what to do with my hair, I had to basically talk them through every slice of their scissors and it would come out terrible. Then I met Latisha who works at circa, and let her do my hair. I have to admit I was nervous at first given my experiences in the past, but after my color and cut I had a hair style that i thought I could never have. Now I get my hair done every month and I feel confident leaving my ball cap at home : ) Great people, great environment, and friendly service...
Style Experts. I am completely happy and satisfied with my haircut. My stylist Latisha was very experienced and knew exactly how to transform my thick, short, and difficult to manage short hair into light, manageable hair. I love it and have had so many compliments. Circa has experts and know what they are doing. The cut is worth the price.
