I have been going to Jim for over a year now and could not be more satisfied. He has made my hair look better than ever with color and cut. I appreciate his honesty and ability to know what I want when I can’t completely describe it. As a curly girl it is not easy to find someone who can produce the results he can. Jim is flexible and can give me an appointment with very short notice. That means a lot to me and shows he appreciates the business. His prices are a great value given the fact I have paid quite a bit more in the past. Give Jim a try – you will wonder how you survived with out him!
Jim Bristol gave me the best hair style and color I’ve ever had. I have fine, flat hair, and after decades of being disappointed, distressed, and depressed upon leaving even the most expensive hair salons, this man came as a totally unexpected, wonderful surprise. First, he took time to discuss things with me on the phone even before my appointment, and during my appointment he actually taught me some new things about hair/color/conditioner, as they pertain to my hair, that I didn’t think I still needed to learn, and that really help to know. Before I found Jim, there was one hair dresser who listened carefully to me and gave me what I wanted. She was good, but Jim is great. Like her, he listened carefully to me, and gave me what I wanted, only BETTER. He gave me the kind of style I didn’t think my hair could handle, and it is even easy for me to manage. It’s hard to explain, really, but with Jim, I think you will either get exactly what you want, or better. For the first time in my life, I like, even love, my hair. A friend of mine, a man, decided to give Jim a try. His hair is also fine, and he doesn’t have much of it due to male-pattern baldness, so we both wondered if Jim could do anything with it that would make any real difference for the better. The difference was subtle but the best haircut my friend said he ever had. He is now one of Jim’s clients as well. We both Highly Recommend Jim.
I found my new hairstylist! I have longish curly hair. I have had a vision of how I wanted my hair cut for years, only to have various hairstylists not be able to get it quite right. I wanted to leave my hair long, with long layers and layers that nicely framed my face. Previous hair cuts have looked choppy or left me with lovely “dog ears” next to my face. I eventually resorted to cutting my own hair, since no one else seemed to get it. I found Jim on Angie’s List after looking for someone affordable but qualified. I have never walked away from a haircut so satisfied. He did exactly what I wanted and got it right the first time, without taking hours to do it or costing me an arm and a leg. I will be be going back to Jim for sure. No more taking the scissors to my own hair!
First, I made a consultation appointment with Jim (free.) I was unhappy with both the existing color and haircut. We discussed what I wanted. I could tell by the way Jim critiqued my current haircut and the way he discussed head shape, face shape, age and corresponding skin tone, how razor-cutting damages hair, and the like — that I wanted to give Jim a try. I was able to make an appointment for the next day. I liked the entire experience. Jim is easy to talk to and explained clearly what he planned to do based on our style talks. He had a nice touch as he patted/cleaned my face as he prepared the hair for coloring or cutting. Compared to my previous hair stylist, Jim was more skilled and professional with a great attention to detail. He made a huge effort to give me the color and cut I wanted. The results were fantastic! I love my color, a mix of three colors that created a warm, rich dark brown. And I love the cut, a layered semi- shag that’s easy to style while the sides of my hair grow in (where they were too severely cut by the previous stylist.) I look forward to my next appointment with Jim where he’ll be able to take my hair to the next level. Thank you Jim Bristol!
Jim is so cool!!! Very relaxed, laid back, knows his stuff kind of vibe. I was very pleased with the cut. I have been able to work with my hair since the day I walked out of the salon. The color was great. I am blond and have been looking for a warm color that doesn’t turn my hair almost brown. I got that. I was REALLY shocked at how little Jim charged but thrilled at how happy I have been with the results. After 6 years of looking in West LA I have finally found my hair stylist.
I was greeted immediately and didn’t have time to open a magazine. Jim took his time listening to what I wanted, how I do my hair. He was very easy to talk to. Jim made me feel at home, like I was just as important as the next reality star. I had a bad broken neck 6 years ago and the last person who did my hair rested her hands on my head and pulled at my hair as she worked. I was down for a week. Jim was painless in every way. I really enjoyed my first visit and will going back on a regular basis!
Jim is great! He has been working his magic with my hair for years. I am submitting a new report based on the most recent wonderful haircut he gave me. Whenever my hair is in a funk (and you ladies know what I am talking about) Jim has great suggestions for a change. He works with what my hair will actually do — not some picture of someone else’s hair in a magazine. He just gave me a wonderful cut and color for the summer. I feel refreshed and it has given me an extra boost of confidence.
Changing hair stylists takes a great leap of faith. Our hair is so personally connected to our self esteem and identity as a woman. Having heard so many positive reviews about Angie’s List, I became a member and voila…I found Jim Bristol and I love my hair! He’s excellent with color and a very talented stylist. The whole experience was enjoyable, stress free and professional. I will definitely recommend him to others, as long as he promises to take me first! Thanks Angie’s List.
Having just returned to LA after a long absence, I found Jim on Angie’s list and took a chance, which fully paid off. I have fine curly hair, which is difficult to style. After letting it grow out, I couldn’t stand the length and needed to return to short hair. I explained this to Jim, and he gave me a fabulous, stylish short cut that retained the fun of the curls but will be super easy for me to care for. The cut was transformative how it complemented the shape of my face. I am entirely pleased! Moreover, I was relieved with his very affordable price and feel I certainly received a top quality cut. Jim is also very nice, low key, and genuine. I appreciated the entire experience, will recommend him to others, and will return for future cuts. Thank you Jim!
I found Jim through Angie’s List and I have been very happy with his professionalism and haircuts. I’ve had four cuts and have been very satisfied.
Was looking for a new style and Jim gave it to me. Excellent!
