Because we don’t typically offer color to our clients, we are asked all the time for color recommendations. It is so hard to find a good colorist and even a good cut for that matter so we are happy to share our hard earned scoop on our favorites in LA.
After taking a long break from coloring my hair (before), above you can see how my cut and color changed throughout the year as well as the artists who made it happen.
Anja Burton at Ramirez Tran – I love Anja. She’s super talented and is fabulous at dimensional color with a seamless transition which is so key when going lighter. Anja knows her stuff for sure, however, she’s super expensive ($400 for my highlights but you get to sit in the prettiest salon ever and hob-nob with the celebs and models while you get your hairs did) and I felt like she was pretty rushed making it harder for her to fully make my inspiration happen. My color was really pretty but super subtle and for such a chunk of dinero, I was hoping to leave with my hair goal instead of inching towards it. I will go back to Anja at some point and just hope she has a good amount of time to give me the blond my heart desires. See her IG here, girl is undeniably talented. I really would trust anyone at Ramirez Tran as well if you want to check out the other colorists there.
Amy Panero at MAVEN Beverly Hills – Amy has colored my hair for years! She is talented, smart, a girl’s girl, and most importantly when it comes to being good at hair, she’s a good listener and takes time with her consultations so she’s sure understand what will make you happy. She also does great cuts so you can get it all done at once. While Amy is at a low-key salon, she charges half the price as Ramirez Tran and I left LOVING my hair with all the blond bits I hoped for.
Ahn Co Tran at Ramirez Tran – Ahn is a super stylist who is a trend-setter with his cuts which account for probably half of your hairspiration pics on Pinterest. He’s excellent, cutting edge (pun intended), and expensive at about $300. You will love your cut though, he just gets it.
Buddy Porter at Ramirez Tran – Buddy was Ahn’s assistant and is now a fantastic stylist in his own right. He has Ahn’s style but a bit more time to go over details with you. Also, he’s a less expensive which is always nice ($250).
