A Different Vibe Hair Salon - Hair Styling Review from Glendale, California

Chelbi Specializing in Healthy Hair can't style natural hair. Find another stylist for these looks: FLAT TWISTS, COIL TWISTS AND TINY MICRO BRAID STYLES. My husband and friends didn't even like my styles and they love my natural looks. I recently found out many of the 5 star reviews are a FAKE. I have been a client for almost 8 months and recently ended her as my stylist. Please disregard the 5 stars from her relatives and friends who she begs for reviews because her work is not even satisfactory! It's sad that you have to ask for reviews claiming you are talented when it's clear you attempted to post a review for yourself but was removed for violating guidelines. I didn't even have a cute style to take a selfie!!! I would make comments like; please style my hair this way or please braid small especially for micro braids. She would complain about her hands hurting and say she was almost tried of doing braids. If you feel like this why would you agree to do my service and complain over my head about braiding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would come home and try to fix my hair because I have to love my styles and be comfortable walking around with my hair. I would call Chelbi Harris for corrections with my hair and she would be too busy and put me off for a week because she doesn't understand constructive criticism or keeping a client happy. Braids would be loose and coming out 4 days after she did my hair. When I look at my previous hair styles and the problems I've had with my twists and micros it's crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I gave her chance after chance but I ran out of chances because it became too much for me to deal with. I've never had a stylist who was late majority of the time, lacked professionalism with returning calls, text messages and failed to communicate in a timely manner. My styles were just okay but never stood out or made me feel like this is my look. I paid her handsomely every time with tip included for her time. She was recommended; by a friend who is also having concerns with her now. She also needs training in customer service. Why are you discussing clients with me right before they walk through the door. I was a fairly new client and I find her to be disrespectful and deceptive talking behind her clients backs while they are supporting her business. She needs to be on time and if you are late or running behind, communicate and let your client know. You don't have to always call; however, be considerate enough to text. Chelbi needs a refresher course in the art of natural hairstyling. Many people in business sometimes forget, the customer is always right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stopped reading at "I didn't even have a cute style to take selfies."

Why are all these reviews about Chelbi seem like they are written by one person? It all has the same style: Childish.

What adult would write like this?

What adult would use these words to describe? I think I'm on Team Chelbi. I think you're just jealous of her for some reason.

Please stop. Grow up.

Chelbi Messed Up My Hair Color

I want to warn anyone who likes color and looking for a master colorist for a new summer look don't walk into A DIFFERENT VIBE SALON, 8368 West 3rd Street in LA, CA. Chelbi Harris works there. I asked her for light blonde color. My hair was medium blonde already. I even took my color with me because I found the perfect shade. Chelbi doesn't know what she's doing. She will say she does to get your money because her clientle is small and many people left. She let my color stay on TOO LONG, didn't monitor my hair like professionals monitor color. She tried to put CREME SODA JAZZING on my hair after it csme out too light but it didn't help. My hair looked liked straw. Plus, I know most stylists gossip but when you talk about the owner begging for booth rent that's because your delininque. She said she wanted to leave and open her own salon near MELROSE. She talks about her clients like a dog. She even talked about a little artistic girl. Her mother is Cheryl. I was bothered by this because that's a child. This is Chelbi's character. She's super mean, inconsiderate, unprofessional and money hungry. She likes to increase her prices at the last minute to cover her past due Sprint bills and rent. She nothing but an evil big lip meanie! The way she messes up color is a connection on how messy she truly is in business.

Fired Hair Stylist involved my name in a Child Abuse Investigation- CASE DISMISSED BY JUDGE

Chelbi Specializing in False Court Documents is more like it. Seven years later, our relationship as client and stylist ended because of severe unprofessionalism. I should have terminated her services in 2008. I'm elated and stoked to have an accomplished, awesome, talented and professional hair stylist NOW. Through the years, I saw too much with Chelbi and forgave several discrepancies. My stylist was out of town, I first met Chelbi in North Hollywood at a salon she worked at without a license. Touching basis with her from time to time, she asked me to be her model for her State Board Testing. I compiled because I wanted her to get her license and be successful. By this time, she was at another salon. Later, she became my stylist when my personal stylist relocated to the east coast. Let's fast forward, after being a loyal client assisting her with business by bringing in clients, helping with flyers, various ideas, administrative requests and consistent encouragement through gifts and words. I began to see her as a *** artist. There's so much to tell. One day, I called the owner of the salon where she is now because the owner and I would talk often. I told her I would not be returning to the salon and explained that if Chelbi ever needed something I would try to help but no longer wanted to be her client because of abrasive situations and apathetic behavior. A few months later, my name was involved in a child abuse investigation and other criminal actions. These cases were dismissed against me because the Judge did not find the parties credible by his own admission. Chelbi and one of her family members made false claims against me stating I called people and this started a child abuse investigation but forgot to do research on getting records suspeaded and District Attorneys. They lied about the child abuse investigation...THERE WAS NEVER AN INVESTIGATION DONE WITHIN THEIR HOUSEHOLD OR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY THEY CLAIMED. IF NO INVESTIGATION WAS DONE WHY DID YOU SAY I CALLED SAYING A CHILD RELATED TO YOU WAS ABUSED???? Chelbi made up lies like I was her client for 10 years and NEVER paid her for hair services. Even kids with a lemonade stand know to receive money when they provide refreshments. Why didn't she sue me for non payment within SEVEN years while making weekly appointments? WOW! She retaliated after the court precedings using my identity on websites and other childish activities. My attorney said this is IDENTITY THEFT. This is my first and last nightmare hair stylist and I HAVE OFFICIAL COURT DOCUMENTS TO PROVE MY EXPERIENCE. She may try to start more trouble but I'm not concerned. The judge will see all the evidence.
