Pleasant, talented, and professional.

The bride, the wedding party, and I were here this past weekend for my brother's wedding for hair and make-up and the stylists at Primarily Hair made us look GREAT!
PJ worked on hair for all the gals. Andrea worked on the mothers for hair and make-up. Stephanie did the hair and make-up for the bride as well as the make-up for all the gals. Everyone was very pleasant and professional and we are very glad we went with them for this special occasion.
We are grateful for Roseanna, the salon manager, for making this happen; for Donna, the owner, for her hospitality; and of course, to Stephanie, PJ, and Andrea, the talented team, for their hard work!

I definitely like this place. I go to Donna and she touches up my hair every 6/8 weeks or so. I go early in the morning at 730 usually and she gets me in and out of there in less than two hours! I have a ton of hair. She is always professional and respectful of my time and always puts my appointment as a priority. I love that! When I get there it's always just us two and when I leave the receptionist is there! She is a sweet heart! I honestly have nothing bad to say about Donna or primarily hair. It is a great place!

Donna is the owner/stylist and she is one of the most professional and friendliest people you could meet. To make things better, she is an awesome hairstylist whether it is a cut, color, or the wonderful Brazilian Blowout. I wouldn't trust anyone else.

Stephanie saved me! My hair was a disaster when I came in....it was green, yellow, and brassy from a previous stylist. I came in for a hair consultation and she was reassuring that my hair goals were still achievable. Stephanie re-hydrated my hair and gave me perfect recommendations on product. When I came back for my hair appointment I felt confident that she could fix me. And she did! I am happy and will be setting another appointment with her.

Having moved to La Habra recently, I needed to find another hair person... the previous one was not worth the commute

This salon is an absolute gem! It is cute and cozy and you immediately feel like you have been going there for years. The décor is charming and everyone will smile at you or nod and say hi.
I was completely surprised by my experience. It started off with a consult. Not your average color consult, which is usually about telling the stylist what you want and them figuring out how to make it happen, but this was Lauren asking what I wanted, what my needs were, how I felt about my hair, etc. My ultimate goal was to have something low maintenance, since I go to the gym everyday and to grow my hair out. She advised my options and what she felt would work best. I went with her suggestion and let her run with it. I really love what she did with my hair and for the first time ever, actually fell asleep at one point in the chair because I was so relaxed there, when I usually have tons of anxiety over how it will look.

As Lauren was trimming and styling, she gave me tips and tricks on how to get the most out of my hair, which I have been using and have actually been having fun with my hair each day since. I also really liked that Lauren suggested products, but did not try to push them on me and only suggested a couple instead of the usual 4 or 5 to give you, in theory, the same look you get at the salon but never do once you try it at home.

Upon leaving, I received a gift mug with goodies for being a new client. I totally get why they have been there for so long. Everyone there seems to get it. There is nothing stuck up about anyone there, they appreciate their customers and really want you to come back. From start to finish a wonderful experience. I will definitely be back going back for years to come.

First time here. Danielle was great! She was super nice and accommodating to my schedule. I walked in with a mess. I have long curly hair that needed serious TLC. She got to work immediately. Colored my hair, gave me just the right amount of highlights and flat ironed my hair. I left out of there feeling like a million bucks. The color she gave me was exactly what I was looking for. Not to drastic but definitely noticeable. The salon is really cute, and it was pretty busy...which is always a good sign. Clients were coming in and out the entire time I was there. Everyone there was very friendly which also makes a difference. Needless to say I made my next appointment before I left. If you feel like getting pampered go see Danielle! She will take care of you!
