Fabulous stylist find in Sonoma!! After relocating to the area from Europe, I was in desperate need of a cut/fresh look and highlights for my wild blonde hair. Len not only gave me an amazing and super chic cut, but his color was top notch! I HIGHLY recommend his new Sonoma Red Loft Salon and look forward to my next visit! p.s. my boyfriend cannot not stop complimenting my new "do" :)
Took a chance and made an appointment after only reading reviews about Len - the greatest chance ever!!!!!! My first impression was through how simple and fool proof his appointment making is. Then, when you actually meet him, his warmth and compassion make the couple of hours go by so quickly. My hair has never felt so healthy and I constantly receive compliments on how beautiful the color is.
Len is simply THE BEST ON THE PLANET!!!!!.
Trust me, I had know idea how bad my hair looked until Len got a hold of me!!!!! And now, WoW!!!!!
At my age I have been to the corner & back looking for outstanding, talented artists who understand hair color, blonde specifically......
Len magically transformed my tired blonde hair with gosh awful 'copper tinted roots' into the most beautiful shade of blonde and excuse the espression, "I look like I was born with it!"
The man is a genius...I do not travel for nearly an hour for mediocrity!
I have finally found a wonderful genius who, with grace, ease, and confidence can make me look like my ole (not old) blonde self.
See you soon!
Miracle Man with hair.
Len hair to repair 2 bad haircuts from a previous hair dresser, not only did he fix my hair but now I have gone back to him several times and will continue to see him.
He does not use any clippers just scissors
It takes a long time to find the right stylist and he's the one.
Thank you Len , your the best.
I just came back from my amazing haircut in Sonoma from Len and he's definitely gained a loyal client in me! I came 15 minutes late and he still took me in and he even pushed back his next appointment for me. The salon in Sonoma is clean and beautiful. Len greeted me warmly and ensured that he'd give me a great haircut. I heard that phrase many a time before at GSquared (avoid/run for the hills), Marlon Ramos ("nice" but mildly volatile stylist that will give you a piece of his mind if you don't like his cut or color), and Wes Pine (HUGELY overrated). All of these people and salons have 5/5 stars but Len is TRULY the REAL deal. His professional, highly knowledgeable, EXPERT, pleasant demeanor marked highly in my book and not to mention is unreal hairstyling skills.
The haircut itself was amazing. I hadn't cut my hair in a year and 2 months so it was beyond long. I told him I wanted to cut 6 inches off and to give me great layers as well as volume. He did this and more. He ensured that my cut worked with my face and even provided suggestions that actually worked perfectly for my face and hair. The end product was amazing. It was a bit shorter than I'm used to but he's seriously that talented he made me love my hair at this length!! Keep in mind, had anyone cut my hair this short, I would've cried/freaked out but I have no idea how or what Len did but it worked and I LOVE my hair. My hair has so much texture, style, and volume. I'm excited to return for color and can only imagine how great that will turn out.
Len is an incredibly sweet, talented, and unpretentious person. Please do not hesitate to visit him at his Sonoma or San Francisco salon :)
So if you happen to me torn when picking various 5 star salons, pick Len. You won't regret it! I was skeptical initially since many of those 5 star reviews in Yelp and CitySearch are so misleading but this girl is a believer now!
Thank you so much Len and I'm so excited to visit you again!
Great highlights!. I am very picky about my hair and have tried various places without much success. I also have long wavy hair that is not easy to manage. Len is not only able to make my hair look amazing while looking 100% natural, but he also is great at recommending what looks good with my skin tone and hair length. He really listens to what i am looking for and is able to give advice on what works best for me. He is not just a hair dresser, he is truly a hair stylist and consultant. Once i discovered Len, i have been coming back and getting more and more satisfied with the results each time. Will highly recommend!
Finally a professional who understands me.
Artistic, pleasant, enormously talented stylist and colorist, I cannot say enough great things about Len. He does my hair and my husband's hair and these cuts last! They grow out beautifully.
I wanted to go lighter with my haircolor and Len suggested doing highlights. He did them perfectly. My hair looks richer, lighter and less harsh. The quality of products he uses and the care with which he selects and blends the strands is pure artistry. We are so happy!
Just found my NEW hairstylist and colorist! It's Len!. I wish I could leave more than 5 stars! Len is more a 10 star hairstylist and colorist! I just had my hair cut and colored (yes I color my hair, I will admit to that!) last week by Len the amazing hairstylist and colorist! I just moved to San Francisco last month from Washington D.C. and got a referral from a co-worker went to that other stylist (at a well known salon on Maiden Lane) first of all it was pretentious, they acted as if they were doing me a favor doing my hair, EXPENSIVE even by Union Square standards! I never went back! I felt I had wasted my hard earned money! Then I decided to research hairstylists (and colorists) on line, and low and behold I happened upon Len. He had so many great things written about him, I just had to make an appointment! I did, on line in fact! Is that easy or what?! I had to change my appointment time to another day and called his help desk, they told me they were available 24/7 they were extremely helpful and polite! I then finally went into see Len, right away I could tell he had a lot of experience, he made me feel comfortable (I brought in pictures to show him of how I would like the hairstyle to look) he and I really communicated well! He listened, then he cut my hair, and colored it (beatiful rich Auburn, with lighter Caramel colored highlights) the result, a color that looks natural but gets me noticed! (I hate the obvious colored hair look!) My cut is amazing, it has so much movement, volume in the right places! SO if you want to finally find your hairstylist (who also happens to do amazing coloring and highlights!) then Len is your man! Nice guy, Nice salon atmosphere (in S.F.) And you can schedule on line! Thanks Len you are the best at what you do! I'm thrilled and will be back time and time again to see you! CAN'T WAIT until my next appointment!
Hairstylist Extraordinaire!. Edward scissor hands doesn't have anything on Len! Len is a fantastic stylist and gives a haircut that works for your hair type and your lifestyle. Len takes his time, listens, and works his magic. Each time I have seen Len, I walk out feeling great about my look and get loads of compliments. Whether you are looking for a new style or a new stylist, you will be glad you went to see Len!
the man tells the truth.
i'm so grateful to have a professional of this calibur in sonoma. with his checkered past in the art world, including hanging with andy warhol back in the great new york days (although i'm sure len did NOT do his hair), he has the confidence and skill to create an amazing haircut/color for your particular type of hair, and he isn't afraid to tell you if you are making a mistake. len cares about the health of your mane.
if you want to be comfortable about going to a new guy, you will not be disappointed in this kind, adorable man.
