Dear YELP ...

Huge, huge, huge fan of this place! Especially of Bill!!!! I came here on a whim and he does not disappoint!

I was in search since my last stylist decided to be a nurse, which I am happy for him but he left me without another him lol.

I went to a few places, one really pricey, the girl does hair for the real housewives of OC...which should have been my first clue...anyways crappy haircut and $200 later I was unhappy and decided to just grow my hair out because she jacked my sh!t up!

Finally making a search again I decided to email this place and let them know what happened and what I was looking for in a stylist.

Fast foward, after having some really nice email conversation back and forth with Bill, I decided to bite the bullet and do a hair consultation...I've never done one of those before but I figured what do I have to lose.

He explained in his email he does do a lot of work on short hair which was what I was looking for A-line but below my cheeks, barely touching my shoulders and short in the back. He went on to tell me what he specializes in and gave me a link to look at and after that I booked my appt.

We met, I was greeted by a very nice assistant who really is just the friendliest person you'll meet in the OC other then Bill of course. I was seated and given my consultation. Now let me be honest with you, when you walk in, its kind of hip and trendy. When I was given the tour I was a little skeptical but excited to meet this Bill. She brought be back to him and he was not at all what I was expecting. But let me tell you, HE IS A FREAKN HAIR GURU and hes all that and more!

I've never been happier, the guy is as thorough as a breast exam lol...not sure if that's appropriate or not but I'm serious. You can tell he just really cared and he wanted to let you know how important your hair meant not only to him, but to you as well. I learned things I never knew as well. He finished off his consultation with letting me know he didn't know my budget and he priced slightly higher and that they have a really well staffed place of like 30 stylist and if I didn't want to go through him he wouldn't be offended.

Let me tell you something. If you're lucky enough to meet this guy and have him do your hair...DO IT. Because I feel just as lucky to have him doing my hair.

I have since went back to have my hair colored and I am getting so many compliments for not just my color but they way he cut my hair. Be sure to get comfortable and trust him he knows what he is doing. Just be ready to answer a lot of questions because they all come into play when doing your hair.

Thanks again Bill, you're truly an asset to this place. DONT EVER LEAVE!

People come near and very far to schedule a Bill Rose hair design. Be prepared to have many compliments and Wows on the precison cuts and color like no other. I always look forward to what Bill will create. He will  first talk to you to understand what look you want to achive and be comfortable with. For me after, I can't belive (25 yrs.!), he keeps me out of a rut, and with the times, sometime very conservative and other times a green light to send me out with another show stopper..

I want to thank you again for the beautiful job you did on my hair. I wanted it to be just perfect (and knew I didn't have the hair for a tradition, bridal hair, up do) and it was the perfect blend of trendy, classic, and overall beautiful. Thank you again--when I get my pictures back from Tiffany, I will send a few to your Jessica collection! I looked at the link of all my photos on your website, by the way: I've definitely had several looks, all of them beautiful! (Except for the "before" or the before and after pictures--those were pretty bad.)



Received July 4, 2011



Hi Bill!

I hope you and Diane are having a joyful summer! I love the last cut you gave me - I am still getting comments! I recently had it trimmed by someone I thought would do a great job. He did alright - he's a much better colorist than cutter! :) I probably could have kept the cut you gave me until my next California visit - it was growing out beautifully! Live and learn :)

I'm planning my next visit to California and of course want to see you for a cut and perhaps some fun color, too. My Mom would like a cut, too. I wonder if you can fit us in back-to-back? I'd like to come out the week before OR after Labor Day - do you have a preference? Let me know if you'll be away, please.

See you soon!


Received July 2, 2011



Bill, I just want to tell you and anyone else who's interested that I just LOVE my hair. No one was more skeptical than I when it came to the big decision – BB or no BB. I'm so glad I did it, I wouldn't have if you hadn't encouraged me. As always – you were right on!

Hey Bill,

Just wanted to give you an update on the Brazilian blowout results. I would definitely agree with what you've been told about the second treatment having better results. My hair is much less frizzy than before, and it cut down on the blow drying time. I also noticed that my hair stays straighter longer and requires less product.

Thanks for always doing an awesome job!

Good morning!

I enjoyed your newsletter - thank you for your comments and photos of me!  What a transformation!  This new haircut is delightful - it's so easy to style and looks great all day, which keeps surprising me.  :)

I've been spending so much time preparing for Paris (I leave Saturday!) that I forgot about the latest photos you took of me.  Would you send them all to me, without your watermark?

Hey Bill!

I just scheduled an appt with you for the morning of Feb 5th for a hair cut. Last time I saw you you did a Brazilian blow out for me (love it!) and I haven't worn my hair curly since. We had discussed cutting some bangs but wanted to see how the blow out worked first. I want to go ahead and have you cut some bangs like you recommended. I attached two pictures, a picture of my hair now and one of me with an example of the the kind of cut I'm looking for.

See you in a couple weeks,

Hi Bill,

Well it has been about ten days since my Brazilian Blow Out.  It's amazing! I used to spend 25-30 minutes to blow dry and flat iron now it takes me less then 6 minutes and I'm out the door.  My hair is so much healthier and such a pleasure to work with.

Thank you so much.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for your patience with me - I've been clearing out some old furnishings in my living space and had a new sofa delivered today! Yippee! I'm loving the new look!

I'm also loving my hair cut! I'd been dreaming about (very) short hair for several months and am so grateful you had that cancellation and could fit me into your schedule. I've had long hair most of my life and always grew it back when I did get it cut. Most of those cuts were just "trims" of a few inches. I was very tired of that same look, but hadn't the courage to do anything different, until recently! I wanted a change SO much! I appreciated the questions you asked me and the time spent defining terms (the "bob") and understanding my concerns (no-fuss style, long neck)! Thank you for responding to my concerns so kindly - you were very supportive. And I haven't spent another second worrying about a long neck! I have discovered that I need a scarf to keep my neck warm in this cooler weather though!

The look you created is easy for me to replicate - maybe 5 minutes of attention with a light gel and the blow dryer and I'm done :) I've also had fun scrunching it - kind of a "bed-head" look, which got lots of positive comments this week! I'm not the kind of person who EVER received comments on her hair and this is rocking my world :)

I'm an environmental scientist with the EPA, working in the regional office in Dallas.

I look forward to our next time together, too!

Dear Bill,

Jessica is so excited for her haircut (3 months is a long time between cuts). We will be there at 8:30 on Wednesday but need to walk out the door at 9:30 for a family event. You are always so kind to take extra time with Jessica, so I just wanted to advise you of our time constraint. Also, Jessica will have her very serious boyfriend, David, with her. Jessica has mentioned you so many times that David said he thinks Jessica is more excited to see Bill Rose than spend time with him.

The way you styled my hair last week was perfect.  I wish I could replicate it.  I enjoyed it so much."

Dear Bill,

Elizabeth forwarded your e-mail and we absolutely love Lydia's haircut and the pictures of the girls.  I'm sure you've considered going into photography as a side job!!  I told Lydia that when she is a senior we'll ask you to take her senior photo and pay you, of course--not sure if that's something you ever do, but the pics are fresh and beautiful!

We'd love to have the one of all the girls that is the photo on the left--a tighter shot of them all up close with more of their faces in the pic--I don't think I wrote the #, but the two are the same picture.  Also, we'd love the two of Lydia without the watermark . . .

I also have a ? re: the pics. My son and I talked about putting one of the pics on his facebook--Lydia doesn't have one yet.  But I am mindful of what you said about folks taking your great photos and Patrick says that pics can be downloaded off his facebook, so I'm not sure if you're comfortable with that?  If not, that it completely fine.

Lydia still talks about your skill, insight, sense of color and style--I told her how great it would be and now she knows!  Thanks for being one of the highlights of our trip south and we look forward to another haircut in the futrure!!

Hi Bill,

We love the pictures!!!!!  I'm sorry I didn't email before this but we have been running crazy with all of our activities.  We would love it

Also, we wanted to know if any of the other pics turned out or if there was a possibility that we could see them.  If not, then we definitely want the ones you put on your website.

Thanks again for all your talents and your interest in the girls.  
Lydia lovessssss her cut, and keeps telling us so.  Hilary is really 
enjoying her cut, and I think she is surprised by that.    She has 
been getting many compliments.  Katherine is warming up to Hilary's cut, and as always, Katherine loves whatever you do with her hair.

So, it has almost been a year since I have gone brunette, and my hair has grown a couple of inches since I've last seen you. I was wondering if you'd be willing to give my look some change- I absolutely LOVE the hair-cut you did for me last time, with the shaggy bangs that became more lengthy around the face, and as it grew out it became prettier and prettier, which is unusual for a haircut ... but yours seem to age like wine.

Love my hair cut.  Was wondering if you would be willing to make the back a bit shorter (to create more of an "A" line look...as you suggested)  If that's okay with you , let me know you're available.  I am available all day tomorrow.

Hi Bill,

Just to say everyone likes my haircut so far w/ the exception of one of the patients where I work. He said, "What did you do to your hair?" I said," I got it cut, do you like it?" "Can't say that I do." Said he. Two people didn't recognize me, tho I must say one was @ dusk & she doesn't know me all that well & w/ the other I was turned side-ways in the hall @ work & she doesn't know me all that well, either. But it's great fun.

I talked to Carmen, my ex-roommate & she says what a fine cut you gave her, it is growing out beautifully. She asked if you'd be willing to tell her the kind of color you used--was it "Schwartzkopf or something like that" ? she asked. You may remember she was an artist in her past life & a colorist & she thinks she might be able to put together the color she needs if she knows the brand. She said it was such a good color it really lasted.

Anyway, thank you again.!!

"Hi Bill,

Thank you, you are always so gracious and accommodating.  My friend loved my haircut (of course) it’s a Bill Rose style!  She will be back in town this summer, and I will call for an appointment. 

I hope you and Diane had fun and did well in your competition.

I’m due for a touch up.  Look forward to seeing you soon."

Love ya, Toni

"Jessie LOVES her hair.  And so do all her friends.  That seems to be the most important thing.  Anyway, thanks for always making such a fuss over her.  She feels so special coming to the big OC to get her hair done.  And, I think you may have a new client when I come back.  Jade was very excited to try something different.  She's a cute girl too.

And I got lots of compliments on my hair at church today too.  People are so nice and supportive.  See you in a few months."

Love, Carolyn

"I love your site and the work you do with hair.   If I ever get to California I plan to make an appointment with you.  I particularly love seeing before and after pics of you clients. 
Again great site"

Let's face it, change can be scary for some of us. After twenty years of awesome haircuts I would follow you anywhere: from Mission Viejo, to Moongate, to Christophe's, and yes, even to a place called "Gods and Heros" (where the web site looks like it could be a tad too "hip" for this over 50 follower).  If the truth be known - you could set up shop in someone's garage and I would be there!  But I was VERY pleasantly surprised and delighted at my experience today at your new location.  It is VERY comfortable, it felt like home and I LOVE it! I am looking forward to my next visit.  Change really can be a good thing.  A very good thing!  (Love the color and cut too! My husband says I look like a model. :- )  !!!)"

Thought you would get a kick out of this:

My granddaughter (age 13) came over yesterday.  This was the dialogue:

    Grandma, did you get a hair cut?
    I like it.
    I really like it.
    It's short on one side and long on the other.
    It's looks hip.
    Not at all like a grandma.
    It looks really cool.

I also got compliments on it from friends at church today.   Looks like you are my Hero (pun intended).
Just want you to know you are appreciated.   Hope your transition to the new shop goes smoothly."


Conversation on August 22 (with 93 yr old Anne)



(Bill) "Anne, have you ever gone to one of those salons where many of your friends go?"

(Anne) "Not recently"

(Bill) "Why not?"

(Anne) "Why would I want to go where all the old ladies are?"

"Bill, I checked your web site again and the maps are very clear.  When I viewed your site yesterday, I was so focused on your models I missed 50% of your links.
Nice job on the site.

Well the hair.

Joel was shocked at first but within a few minutes liked the cut and said, "yes the shorter hair looks good, but if you go any shorter you might look like a man".  Lol, ha, ha, ha.  You were right, once he saw it and recovered from the initial shock, he continued to like the cut more and more. 
He did the usual "stand here under the light, let me looks at the color from all angles".  "OK, now come outside in the sun".  After his "color inspection", he said he absolutely loved the color. Again he said, this continues to be the best my hair has ever looked. 
However, he emphatically wanted to know who came up with the idea to put "those Orange strips" in the front?  Ha, ha, ha. . . . . . you were right.  According to Joel,  "it completely ruins the rest of the color and cut"  I told him not to worry, it would be gone in a few weeks and it wouldn't hurt the color.

Now for me

I feel like a new person and really needed the boast it gives me.  I now realize, most of the  harshness my eyes were seeing was due to the length and lack of "style".  I think this cut gives me an attractive style and a more youthful look, which I greatly needed at this stage of my life.
I am so excited, thus the lengthy email to tell you how much I love my new look and frankly I really like the weave and will enjoy it until I see you again for my next color appointment in Costa Mesa."

I checked your web site and read about your move.

Also, I just wanted to tell you how much I love my haircut.  Remind me to tell you a funny story the next time I see you.  It involves a salon owner who approached me while I was at Fashion Island and asked me out.   He loved my hair!  It was very amusing ... and no I didn't go.

My next appointment with you is September 1 so I guess I'll still see you at Christophe Salon."

"Hi Bill!  Hope you are enjoying your trip.  I can imagine that the OC is in another universe altogether by this stage in your journey.

Quick note cuz you asked me to ....I GOT THE JOB!  It's a hot one, too.  Formal offer will be forwarded next week.  My hair looked fab, the color looked fab, and I wore nothing but the autumn palette to my interviews.  HIGH FIVE!"

Thank you!

Received May 26, 2007

"I love you more every day.  This cut is so cute that I get all kinds of excited whenever I'm out of the shower and styling it.  I have been a short hair person all along and just didn't know it.

I know you're off on your vacation and I am trusting you are enjoying the scenery, water and the open air so thoughts of your work and clients were left back at the dock.  But I just had to tell you I truly, truly appreciate your talent and your willingness to share it so selflessly."


"PS - Because of my new do, I felt confident so I sailed through to the 4th interview and am scheduled for the 5th and final interview next Friday.  Most candidates did not make it past the 2nd, and none to the 5th, so I am doing great.  The energy there is positive and I have not felt a single negative and the best part is that I feel like I am good enough to meet the challenge.  You've given back a large portion of my self esteem and I am grateful."

"Dearest Bill:

I am leaving for my interview now and I look flawless.  Thank you for your special art and for believing in me.  Never before have I had a hair stylist that is so concerned about the "total woman".  You are spot on.  I can see where you're going with the hair, and I agree.  Next time!  And I want to also thank you for doing exactly what I wanted even though you didn't agree.  You are priceless and I am so glad I found you.

Have a wonderful vacation!  See you when you return!"

Much love, hugs, and smooches,

Hi, Bill


Michelle is very excited about her scheduled visit with you Thursday. She even has her hair parted on the side today, something she wouldn't do on my suggestion for anything. I think you won her over when you transformed my hair yesterday! You are definitely the best!

Lots of love,
