    I recently had to cancel my old loctician and find someone new. I tried one place that was good and efficient, but not personable at all. They would never grow to learn MY hair and what it needs. I found Ayrus by recommendation and I'm so happy I did! First, his colorist is amazing and I love the way my purple came out. Second, Aryus was on time and took his time. Third, he never pulled my hair or twisted anything too tight. By far the most delicate hands I've ever had in my head. Fourth, he consulted with me and talked to me every step of the way. And finally, he slayed my hair for the gods! I told him I needed to attend a wedding and gave him creative freedom. He did something I never seen before, complimented my face, and had me receiving compliments all week. The best loctician I know!

    Went to see Aryus to start my dreads after finding him on Yelp. Super friendly, professional, and knowledgeable guy and did a great job! Also had a post-consultation with him and was given aftercare instructions. Very happy with the finished results!

    Just moved here from the Bay Area, I’ve been growing my dreads for 5 years so I have a fair amount of knowledge about dreads and I can tell so does Ayrus. Found him on yelp, easily booked a last minute appointment. He definitely knows his stuff and provided excellent service. He will be my new loctician during my tenure in LA.

    I am in LA, from Washington, DC only for 1 month. I searched for a couple days via Yelp for locticians, the scarcity of stylists made me sceptical. Hesitantly I booked an appointment with Aryus, having only two other stylists work in my hair, ever. Needless to say, I am very pleased his. He is very professional. My appointment started on time and my hair had his full attention. He is very knowledgable, about hair, and detail orientated. I didn't even make it to the corner on Crenshaw, before I was receiving compliments. Should our paths ever cross again, he is someone I can definitely trust with my hair.
