Testimonial – What people are saying

Olivia’s Makeup Channel

I stopped by Vertigo Salon for the first time about a week ago, specifically to see the lovely and wonderful ROBBI MILAN (I followed her to Vertigo Salon from her previous place of employment).
I had a very specific idea in mind for the cut – something inspired by an old photograph from the Civil War era. Robbi took a couple glances at the photo and went to work. And of course she nailed it! It’s always a relief to find someone that gets YOUR STYLE and understands what works best for you – especially someone that you plan to see at least several times a year.
Robbi Milan HAS TALENT and a great eye for men’s cuts. I’m also happy to report that the guy she styled right before me walked out with a smile equally as big as mine, so I know it’s no fluke.
Great cut, great price, great stylist, and great conversation all in a non-stress atmosphere! And the rest of the staff was super friendly as well! Can’t ask for anything more than that.

Highly recommended!

I highly recommend the wonderful ladies at Vertigo. I was in town for an event and went to them for hair, make-up, and nails. Even though they all knew I wouldn’t be a repeat customer (unless I come back to LA!) they all spent lots of time on me and I felt absolutely pampered.  When I called to make my appointment Deven was sweet and professional, I didn’t feel rushed to get off the phone and really felt like my needs were going to be met. I showed Nancy a photo of the hair style I was going for and she made it look even better than it did in the picture I gave her of Reese Witherspoon. Allison gave me beautiful eyelashes and my makeup was exactly what I was looking for – not overly dramatic, but more polished than my usual. And Sonya did an impeccable, flawless job on my gel manicure. I got 3 random compliments from strangers and the best part – the look on my guy’s face when he saw me. I’ve never felt more beautiful in my life and I owe it to these girls.

I absolutely love Vertigo Salon!!!! Their staff are so friendly and welcoming. I was there last Saturday and I always have the best experiences there! Tina, their lovely receptionist was my hero and booked me a gel manicure because I had a date. I was in a hurry and Tina made it happen!! I didn’t expect her to call me back when I booked my appointment last minute like 30 minutes before. I had to leave at 2:00 p.m. I called at noon and Tina made it happened. Finished by 1:30 BOOM! I am also excited to attend their new yoga class. The first one is FREE! Vertigo Salon is a one stop shop where you can get a massage, nails, hair, and do yoga. They have added a tattoo service, which I never heard of any other salon providing this service. The decor is glamourous with mirrors everywhere, black chandeliers, and comfortable lounge to wait. Tina offered me a complimentary green tea. DAY MADE!

I just moved to LA from Miami and I recieved a Gift Certificate for Vertigo Salon for a hairshow I did. I called this salon and the staff was so warm, it was unexpected but very welcomed.  I was acutally a few minutes late and I got put with, by chance, an amazing stylist named Phil. I have to tell you.. Phil is the best! He works miracles on hair! I was not expecting to go to a MASTER colorist, but Phil knows what he’s doing and he even teaches color to others, so you can trust him. I had what you might call a botched coloring job from experienting with hair color and I told him I wanted to go blonde and he suggested highlights and thank God I trusted him because he did such a great job. Never have a found such a great colorist. I have been back since to get my highlights retouched and plan to go to him from now on

The prices are average and of course you get what you pay for in this world! Totally worth it ….

Hi Shelly,
Thanks so much for the follow up.  We had the most beautiful experience at Vertigo.
We all felt like princesses, or in my case a total rock star!
 Manuel did the most amazing job on my hair and makeup, I got so many compliments.
We had such a fun stay in your city and will be certainly recommending your salon to our travelers.
Thanks again to the team that helped make us beautiful!
Cheers Heidi

Vertigo Salon is in the Penthouse floor of The Standard Oil Building on Olympic and Hope Street across from FIDM.  Yesterday was my first time coming here although I have noticed their sign on their fire escape 9 floor up.  The staff is FANTASTIC!  They will offer you something to drink.  They have water, coffee, tea or champagne.  Katy Love was my stylist and I couldn’t have been happier.  I have a salon in my building but I will continue coming back to Katy.  BTW if you check in to Vertigo Salon with your Yelp app you will get 20% off on your first visit.

This is a brand new Salon that really offers any service that relates to Beauty. I came here to get a mani and pedi from the Queen Nail Technician Shelly. She was great as she took her time to perfect my nails. It has been two weeks and my nails still look good as new. I was offered Tea and Coffee as I was waiting for my service and I really loved the modern atmosphere to the Salon (I felt like I was in a hotel). The location for the Salon was great and the service made it that much better. I realized they also offer services in Hair and Facials so I definitely see myself coming back here. I would definitely recommend this Salon to my peers and if your looking for a new and exciting Salon in the Downtown La District the Vertigo Salon is a good place to go to.

I have been to Vertigo Salon twice now and have to say this place is amazing. The staff is very talented and the space is beautiful. I had Katy this time and she was fantastic, perfect for more stylized cuts.
The prices are very reasonable in comparison to other high end salons, especially considering it is in downtown. Overall it is a really great salon and I will definitely be going back.
