At Le Rêve Salon de Paris in the Granada Hills Shopping Center (18000 Chatsworth St), their goal is to provide their customers the best possible beauty experience. This one stop beauty and relaxation destination has more than just a few amenities for both men and women.

This salon literally has everything you can think of when it comes to beauty and body care, and it is still adding to its menu of options.  Although the salon accepts walk-ins, booking by appointment is highly recommended. You can either call, book it online, or go in person.

Walking into the salon, you’ll find a comfortable and stylish waiting area, a receptionist who answers any questions you have, and a snack bar that has chilled water, coffee, tea, cookies, and fruit, all of which is free.

Depending what you book, the employee comes out to get you while offering things to eat or drink. I had my hair done and my stylist was friendly, listened to what I wanted, and even advised me as to what does and doesn’t look good on me. She used top products that left my hair soft and shiny. Something that always happens to me when I go and get my hair done is that I usually just sit there in awkward silence till the stylist is done. Here though, my stylist asked me questions and had a real conversation with me, not just idle chit chat.

I also did my nails there, and I have never had an experience like that. I had some old nail polish on, and instead of just soaking my nails in acetone, which leaves them dry and brittle, she took the time to manually file them off. She did the work with professionalism, and it was almost graceful. She didn’t roughly shove my hands in the bowl and cleaned my cuticles gently. She also casually chatted with me and informed me that everything they use for a manicure and pedicure, including the nail polish, is organic and doesn’t harm the nails or skin. She told me that the products they use for your nails actually help them grow healthy and strong instead of weak and brittle. When she was done with my nails, I received a short, but very relaxing, hand massage with a lotion that left my hands baby soft.

They have true professionals there who know what they are doing and who work hard to ensure you are happy with the results. The employers are friendly and obliging and do everything in their power to make sure you are comfortable and satisfied. The salon does the usual hair, nails, and waxing/threading, but they also do massages, facials, body scrubs, makeup, permanent makeup, and will be including lash extensions, laser hair removals, Botox filler, nutrition, barbers, and spray tans. They just recently put up a Prom Package where they do any hair style and makeup style you want for only $110.

So pop on by. Although some things are a little pricey, it makes up for it by professionalism, great service, and the feeling of royalty after you leave. I give this place 10 out of 10 scissors!
