I am so thankful I found Batia! Her haircuts are absolutely amazing! I am a busy college student, and Batia gives me cuts with amazing layers that can be grown out for several months. This works really well for me because I often get pretty lazy with my hair, and she makes sure to give me stylish cuts that even I can manage at home. My boyfriend loves my new haircut and has not stopped smiling since I came home yesterday! The Batia & Aleeza salon is warm and welcoming and the staff are really special. The receptionist is friendly and even helped me with directions the first time, and the assistants are really great too! For as long as I live in Southern California, I only trust Batia to cut my hair. Thank you so much B & A Salon

I wanted to post under testimonials but don’t know how. The red head cut my hair 3 months ago and it was the best cut of my life! I had my doubts since I’ve gone to the “best” in New York and the “best” in LA but no one can compare to what she did. My hair has been so damaged from straightening it and I was truly disheartened. I walked into the salon, she said she would change my life ( I didn’t believe her of course but it couldn’t be any worse than what i had) . Her hair was so perfectly curled that I was willing to take a chance. I walked out of there so gorgeous! My only regret is that I had not found her 8 years ago. I have to grow out my hair and its going to be hard but I’m never looking back. thank you Batia and Aleeza. You are miracle workers. Best, Krishna

I drive from San Diego 3 times a year just to have Batia cut my hair. I have thick curly hair and I never knew how to style it or manage it all through high school. Now I just apply the products and instantly my curls look amazing. I always get compliments on my hair and after 4 years, I will travel any distance to continue getting a great hair cut. Thank you Batia for your amazing artistry.

Felicity was signed to San Diego Model Management recently and she just finished her first photo shoot. When asked if I wanted to use their Makeup and hair stylist I quickly replied no. No one can manage Felicity’s hair or bring out the shine and curl better than the Batia and Aleeza hair products. Without your Bio-Herbal Mineral Sculpting Gel my daughters hair would be a huge frizz ball by noon. All I did was use a spray bottle mixed with water, the conditioner and a small squirt of the sculpting gel. Then I picked it out and used a small amount of gel one last time through her hair. For the make up we just used powder and lip gloss. These pictures show just how amazing your products are. We were shooting photos for four hours in the middle of the day. Her hair was pulled up and down and into ponytails and then back down again. Her curls remained beautiful. Your products are the only one that I trust when I know I need something reliable. Thank you so much.
Bobbie and Felicity
Your hair products are wonderful; they are the best I have ever used. And I have used just about everything out there!
Hi Ladies- I am sure someone reads your emails but I just have to tell you anyhow, it took me so many years to find a product that works with my hair. The reason I initially ordered your product was because you both have the same hair as I do. Whenever I looked at ads for other curly hair products it looked to me like models with straight hair that just stepped out of a salon and 2 hours of curlers. Nobody with curly hair has perfect curls! I don’t have time to make them perfect but your product makes it frizz-free and pretty. I get a lot of complements on my hair now and after 45 years of fighting off the frizz……….you saved me!

When I came back from Survivor: Tocantins, I knew I needed to make some changes in my life. I would follow my ambitions more, use technology less – oh, and after two months in the sand, I needed a killer haircut. Enter Batia & Aleeza. I’ve received haircuts from both of them, each better than the last. They manage to emphasize the good things my hair does (slight curl) while hiding the bad (receding at the temples, poofs out on the sides). All that and it’s extremely easy to manage, thanks to their shampoo, conditioner, and especially their styling gel. Thank you, Batia & Aleeza, for helping me survive my hair!
Stephen,June 7, 2009
I thought I had already experienced the best hair cutters in the world–but then I met Batia. That was 28 years ago, and no one else has cut my hair since. Batia is not so much a hair cutter, as an artist. Your hair can’t look or feel better, than in her hands.
Bodhisattva Shree Swami Premodaya, June8, 2009
Batia is magic, an artist. She is extraordinary! I’ve been coming to her for fifteen years because she is the best hairdresser for my curls and color. Each time I come to her, my hair is more beautiful, and her products work wonders with my curls. Thank you, Batia! You’re a goddess!

Although pretty sceptical at first, I must admit that all what they describe about the product and all the testimonials written turn to be right. This gel is pretty effective that it’s enough for me to apply it in the morning and let my hair shiny and beautiful looking the whole day. Having said that, this gel lasts pretty long for me. I guess it’s about 1,5 to 3 months. All in all, it’s $20 well spent.
Desiree, April 30, 2009
Batia is a “Master Magician” !!! This is the best hair cut I have ever had! The “Batia and Aleeza” products are miracle product, the best products I have ever used and I have used them all!!! My hair is now “naturally curly” and not “naturally frizzy”! It has shape, style and length! Thank you Batia and Aleeza.
Angela, Los Angeles, CA
When I looked in the mirror after having my hair cut at Batia and Aleeza I thought I’d had a hair transplant. The frizzy mess I usually tied up in a tight bun had been replaced with soft, smooth curls. And with their sculpting gel, I can easily recreate the look at home – every day! It’s amazing. For the first time in my life I actually love my curls.
Esther, Los Angeles, CA
Before I met Batia and Aleeza my hair used to be unmanageable, frizzy and shapeless. I used to pull it up in a pony tail all the time from frustration. The products I used just caused my hair to fall and to loose shine. When I was introduced to Batia and Aleeza they gave me the best hair cut ever that left my hair manageable and beautiful even after 4 days!!
The amazing products stopped the hair from falling almost completely and made it look gorgeous!!!!!!! I never ever used to get complements for my hair what so ever! After the introduction with Batia and Aleeza I get complements from people that are stopping me at the street and asking me for my hairdresser’s info. Well, I only get my hair cut twice a year but the products I use all year long. The best products e v e r !!
Thank you for making my hair and me look so fabulous.
Sharona, Los Angeles, CA
All my life I have struggled with my hair. I used to spend at least an hour every morning, washing, conditioning, and using at least 5 different styling products, and then drying my hair with a diffuser. Even with all of that there was no guarantee that my hair would turn out looking good or even manageable. Then I learned about Batia and Aleeza, and it changed my life!
Batia understands how to work with my hair–actually, she understand how my hair works, so the cut is always perfect. The products are amazing. I only have to wash my hair once a week now, so I am saving so much time and money, and without all that water going down the drain, I’m even helping the planet!
Julia, Santa Monica, CA
I’ve been getting my hair cut and colored at Batia & Aleeza on and off for 22 years, and no matter what other hairdressers and colorists I try, I always end up returning to Batia. The salon has seen my naturally curly brown hair through various styles and shades over the years, from long and curly to short and straight, and deep auburn to bright red with highlights. No one in any city has ever created more flattering, natural, and beautiful red hair on me, and I get compliments on it all the time.Curly girls, give Batia & Aleeza a try!
Vicki, Los Angeles, CA
I had my first visit to this salon this week and Batia cut and styled my hair. I am amazed at how wonderful everyone in this shop is. From the minute you walk in to the time you leave you are treated like a queen. Batia is personable and so professional. I feel like I have made a new friend. This is the best haircut I have ever had and their hair products are fantastic. I highly recommend this salon and all of it’s products and services.
I have tried so many different “styling gels” and never really loved any of them…until I tried Batia & Aleeza. I have never used anything like it before. I just put it in my hair after I wash it and do nothing and it consistently looks good. I have been receiving so many compliments about my hair since using it. Plus, most products I have allergies to but not this. I have been telling all of my curly hair friends about it. Thanks Batia and Aleeza for making such a wonderful product!
I must say that I love these product! They work great and they smell great! I struggle with dryness and frizz and found these products to improve my hair. I especially love the gel. I just wish there was a salon in New Jersey! Thanks for the great products!
Karen Howland, New Jersey
Dear Batia and Aleeza, I am extremely overjoyed with your products which take beautifully to my naturally curly hair. I have tried numerous products that promote coarseness and stickiness with a side order of frustration over the years. I have used your three subsequent products and find my hair to be fabulous each day…My natural curl is back and alive and well; thankfully to your ingenious product. I will continue to only use your hair products. Thank you for putting a smile on my face and creating this regimen which gives magical enchantment to natural curls.Wishing you Sunny days with continued Spring in your Curls….All Good Things.
Batia gave me the most beautiful, most perfectly layered cut of my life–she is a genius with scissors! I was at my wits end when I went to Batia for a cut for the first time last week. I was constantly fighting my naturally curly hair, and it seemed that no one ever understood the kind of cut I was looking for. Well, Batia understood perfectly. She gave me a full, gorgeous cut that I can wear curly or blown-out straighter, and has cut 20-30 minutes off my normal styling time of 45-60 minutes. I absolutely LOVE my hair now, and I’ve received so many compliments on it! She has a new client for life. Thank you, Batia!
Sophie, Hermosa Beach, CA
In the past, I had curly, dry, splitting brown hair that was a pyramid shaped, poofing and frizzing out any chance it got. I have had no control of it since college when I kept getting bad hair cuts that just would pile up on my head! After trying many gels that would only leave my hair dryer and frizzier the following day, I decided to march into Batia and Aleeza’s salon and purchase this Bio-Herbal Mineral Sculpting Gel that everyone was raving about on the web site. The man at the front desk asked me if I wanted to talk to Batia about my hair and I thought it could not hurt to talk to her. My hair must have looked awful because Batia was able to slip me in for a hair cut right away. I could not believe it! What was I doing letting someone I barely met to cut my hair that I had been trying to grow out! There is something about Batia that made me feel extremely comfortable to allow her to do anything to my hair because she seemed warm, friendly, confident, and experienced with curly hair. She did not just give me a trim, she gave me a style that gave me back my curly hair that I once had as a teenager. She worked with me and kept it shoulder length. My husband loves my curls and can not wait for it to grow longer because it looks healthy and shaped perfectly for my face. He smiles every day at me and touches my curly hair. I went to see her two weeks later and she came to see me right away and did a quick style and touch up trim. I feel like I can always just pop in and say hi to her and she always is open to correct or “organize” (as she would say) my hair troubles. Did I forget to mention that I bought the shampoo, conditioner and gel and my hair is healthier than it has ever been! Everyone is right, these hair products really work! The gel is a lifesaver! It is light but surprisingly holds the curl without drying it out and the best part about it is that it is touchable! Everyone wants to! touch m y curls now! Thank you Batia for saving my hair. I get compliments all the time. Gosh, I feel like this is an info commercial but when you believe something is so great, you want to share it with other people who might have similar issues. Well worth the money considering how little I need to spend maintaining the hair afterwards.

Batia Elkayam and Aleeza Callner, have been in the business of hair for over 42 years and have a specialization with the art of styling and cultivating curly hair. Both sisters adorn a head full of lush ringlets that frame the chiseled features of their face. When I first met Batia, her infectious smile and warm hug took me by surprise. She immediately invited me to her salon and to meet her “family”. The pristine salon was almost like an art gallery with its dark, shiny hard wood floor and contrasting milky walls. And the artists, well, they were each of the stylists that worked meticulously on their clients.
Review on LA Splash.com
Batia and Aleeza are absolutely amazing. Batia is far and away the best hairdresser and colorist I have ever found anywhere in the world! All of my life my hair was a problem; I could not control the frizz or tame the curls no matter what I did. But Batia’s cuts are so superb that the layers softly fall into place, and her products — particularly her gel — keep it soft, light, and completely frizz-free. A miracle! People now stop me on the street to comment on my curls and color. I owe it all to Batia! The salon is great fun, too. Batia and Aleeza are fun, vibrant, energetic, and passionate about HAIR … it shows in all they do and in the free, easy atmosphere of the salon. Ronni and Seble are also fabulous, as is everyone else at the salon! And even though Batia is a veritable hair GODDESS, she is endearingly open, friendly and caring, making everyone feel comfortable, loved and BEAUTIFUL! She and I have joked so often about the time we were both in the bathroom of a movie theater, not knowing the other was there. We were across from each other, washing our hands, and when I looked up and saw her, I thought I was looking into a mirror … and she had the same exact experience looking at me at that same moment! Batia is so loveable that she creates a bond with and endears herself to all of her clients, making each one feel special and beautiful! Visit the salon … you’ll walk out more gorgeous than you walked in, and you’ll have a fabulous time in the process!

Having thick curly hair can be very hard to cut. I have been to the well known New York City ‘curly hair salons’ but nothing compares to Batia And Aleeza. It was literally the best cut of my life and the down to earth environment at the salon is so pleasant. Batia and Aleeza know what they’re doing and the proof is in the cut. Now I’ll have to fly to LA to get my hair cut! I won’t let anyone else touch my hair. Finally! I’ve found you! Thank you Batia and Aleeza. Also I love the products! It’s so worth it.
Amy Stiller, November 18, 2007
I am excited beyond belief to find kindred curly haired women! I can’t wait to try the products and would be on your doorstep today if I could be! I’ll let you know how it goes when I get your product in hand! Again, I can’t wait!
Della Jones, September 26, 2007
Thank you for the fantastic haircut and your amazing products. Finally, no more mushroom/triangle/bushy shape! And, I finally get to wear my hair long without it getting flat on top! Plus it feels fantastic and its never been so shiny and healthy. Thank you! thank you! thank you! I recommend your salon every time I get compliments on my “beautiful curly hair”–and thats a lot!
Kim K, September 4, 2007
Dear Batia & Aleeza, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you have done with my wife Rebecca and my daughter Pasha. Not only have you done an excellent job on both of their hair, making them look absolutely beautiful, but you have also made them feel beautiful inside. I can’t thank you enough.
David Moreno, August 1, 2007
I just wanted to tell you that I love your hair products. I bought them through naturallycurly.com and they are wonderful. My hair has never been this curly. I gave some gel to my co- worker, and she loved it as well. Then she gave some to her mom, who used it over the weekend then proceeded to call her early Monday morning to tell her she loved it and was ordering some for herself! Pretty amazing! I will be in LA in Sept- maybe I’ll pop in and check out the salon. Thanks so much!!!
Renne Hrin, July 17, 2007
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for making such astounding hair care products. I have very curly, fine hair and I have been in a funk for few years after two pregnancies that seemed to change the the texture of my hair. I get compliments all the time again after just two weeks of using your products. I am saving up for a salon visit! Fondly, M. East LA

Batia has styled Bay’s hair for years and he uses Batia & Aleeza products regularly. Over the years Batia & Aleeza had styled the hair of many celebrities such as; Steven Spielberg, Jerry Seinfeld, Britney Spears, Shear, Peter Gruber, Alicia Silverstone, Nancy Travis, Amy Ervin and many more.

I have tried many products and there is nothing like your Bio Herbal Mineral Sculpting Gel. Today is a very humid day and you would never know it if you looked at my hair! My curls are perfect!!!
Connie Jiampetti, June 25, 2007
Batia was amaaaaaaazing! I have cried over my hair for years, so when I walked into the salon I was pretty skeptical. Not only was Batia warm and honest (so important), but she made my hair beautiful and taught me how to manage it when I got home (probably the most important thing!) She really knows how to cut curly hair (or in her words, “organize it.”) I’m so thankful that I met her and now have a place that knows how to cut my hair!
Courtney Abrams, January 31, 2007
Thank you for your wonderful products. I can not believe the overall condition and style of my curly hair. Love it! When I get to CA, I plan to make a stop and get a cut.
Donna Wood, January 29, 2007
Dear Batia and Aleeza,
I’ve been using your products since the summer and LOVE them. For the last 17 years I have tried EVERYTHING (Kiehl’s, Ouidad, Devachan…) and was unsuccessful until I somehow came across your web site earlier this year. I have received complements and often asked what I use in my hair. I just e-mailed Allure magazine that they must check you out for you have an incredible line of hair care.
Ilana Solomon, December 28, 2006
Aleeza, you saved my wedding day with the most beautiful hair style I have ever had in my life! I looked and felt like a princess. You really are amazing. my haircut is spectacular as well! Thanks for everything!!
Susan Berberian, October 24, 2006
It took me 40 years to finally figure out how to work with my hair! Thanks to these great products, my hair is soft, curly and really beautiful now. These hair products have been life changing!
Alexandra Katehakis, October 2, 2006
I just wanted to say that I just received Batia and Aleeza’s products and I’m hooked! My curls are less frizzy and I just got the products4 days ago! Now, if I can only find a good hairstylist in this area!! Thank you so much for making me feel the way I do.
Erica Annapoliss, September 12, 2006
In my business, the way my hair looks is very important. Curly hair is challenging, to say the least. Were it not for Batia and Aleeza and their perfect products, my hair would frizz with every change in weather. I will not allow anyone else to cut my hair and their products are the only ones I will use. I wouldn’t trust anything else.
Nancy Travis, September 6, 2006
Batia, I want to thank you for giving me one of the best experiences in hair salons. Your vision and ability to correct damaged hair change my look from dull to stylish and sexier. You personally evaluated my hair and took the time to check on me throughout the whole process; from coloring to highlights. You generously use only the best products with clients, and your technique of cutting proved how experienced you are with curly hair; now it has volume and character. The ambiance, amenities, and your professional staff are all part of the great experience you provide in your high-end salon. And last, this letter is written one whole week after my haircut and coloring; I wanted to see how great I would look without the hand of a professional. I have been able to manage and style my hair easily, thanks to your top quality products and tips. I feel great and look so much better.
Mira, August 28, 2006
A couple of months ago, I saw a woman with amazing curls and asked her who her stylist was. She gave me a card of Batia & Aleeza’s salon. Having curly hair myself that I often straightened or tried to tame in a ponytail, I am really glad I asked her: Batia gave me back the curls that I had when I was a little girl. Great service by all people involved, great products.
Daniella, July 10, 2006
Thank you for giving me back my curls. I have always had problems with styling my curly hair. Not any more. I have been using your hair products for about three weeks and have received several compliments on how good my hair looks. Aleeza, you gave me a transforming haircut, thank you!!
Leanna Tucker, February 22, 2006
Batia & Aleeza Bio-Herbal Mineral Sculpting gel is the absolute BEST product on the market. I live on the coast just north of Boston and our humidity and weather are all over the place…frizz central! I have been addicted to it since I first discovered it over four years ago. I have tried every high-end/low-end product available but their gel is my addiction…it absolutely cannot be replaced. People constantly ask me what I use for my long curly hair & when I let them in on my secret, they cannot believe Batia & Aleeza is my ONLY tool. It smells wonderful, keeps my curls moisturized, soft and frizz free…and my bottle lasts for about 6 months! Even my stylist can’t believe it… I bring my bottle along when he trims my hair…nothing in his salon can come close. My sisters (wavy/curly) and mom (who has straight hair) are also now addicted. I just can’t say enough! Thank you Batia & Aleeza!!! You are the BEST!!! Next time I travel to the L.A. area I must come see you!
Daphne Verardi, January 10, 2006
With curly hair, products are super important. From the moment I tried Batia & Aleeza’s hair products, I was hooked!! My curls don’t frizz or dry out; I adore the styling gel in particular and use it every day!!
Anonymous, April 12th, 2005
I finally believe in miracles!!!!! In one appointment, Batia transformed my curly, drab hair into the most beautiful and sexy head of hair. I never thought it was possible to feel and look this good. A whole life fighting with my curls, from blow dryers to straightening treatments to finally loving my curly hair. Batia is amazing and so are the hair products!
Anonymous, April 16th, 2005
I’ve never had confidence in my look because I never thought I could have a gorgeous head of hair. I tried to fight the fact that I had super curly hair with pony tails and lots of gel. After seeking the help of Batia I now absolutely love my hair and go out with confidence and pride. I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my hair either. The stylists at Batia and Aleeza really understand curly hair and know how to make you look fabulous.
Anonymous, March 6th, 2005
Finally, a perfect salon in all respects. Batia is a brilliant stylist with grace and an amazing touch. And wow, the hair products match the service. In particular, the hair gel is the best I’ve ever used (a for hair that is salt and pepper these days), I’ve been using gel for many years. With dry or wet hair, the gel works wonders. Simply put, everything about Batia and Aleeza is what you wish for in a salon, in hair products and in attitude.

I was in the studio during a recording session for the band “million billion” a few months ago. During a break, I was talking to the bass player, Yonaton Elkayam, and he mentioned that I had the most beautiful hair and that he knew of a salon that I should go to and try their products because there was no other product in the world like this. I told him that I’ve been going to the same salon for years and I would never use any other products. He replied “I know you have been going to the same salon forever, but do you know who the best hairdressers in the world are?” I said. “Yes, Batia and Aleeza!”…Just to my surprise, Yonaton Elkayam is the son of Batia, nephew of Aleeza…small world. If you want the most professional service, creatively evolved stylists, and the most incredible products…there’s only one place in L.A. to go…Batia and Aleeza.
Ethlie Ann Vare
I use the sculpting gel everyday, after a shampoo or to touch up dry hair. It instantly transforms an okay hair style into a hair style with definition, shine, and chic. Of course, Batia’s outstanding haircuts don’t hurt either!
Batia and Aleeza’s products made my naturally curly hair do things that I never thought my hair was capable of. My hair looks better and better after every use!
Ellen Sue Ballon
I grew up hating my curly hair, and a friend introduced me to Batia and Aleeza. They cut my hair so I could wear it with pride, and they told me about their hair products. Their shampoo and conditioner is fabulous. My hair is more manageable than ever. The gel saved me. It took away the frizziness and let the curls fall distinctively and with style. I’m hooked.
Sandra A. Kushner
Batia and Aleeza’s hair gel is the best thing to happen to curly hair. I’ve tried and rejected EVERY product on the market and finally found one that works! It is truly the best. I actually give it as stocking stuffers at Christmas time and it is always my sisters’ favorite present.
Dear Batia and Aleeza, When I first came to your salon I bought your gel because you swore by it, but when I got home I realized I had an almost full bottle of a very expensive product I had been using and returned your product the next day. After a month or so I ran out of the costly gel I had. I had heard from several people how good all your products are so I bought your shampoo and the gel. Never have I used BETTER products and the gel allows me to do things with my naturally curly hair that I never was able to do, I am thrilled!! Thank You!
Judy Summer Winick
Batia and Aleeza’s hair products are truly amazing! I use their conditioner and shampoo and gel. All are great and only a little of each is needed to create gorgeous curls. Take it from one who knows because I start with a mop on my head. I always get compliments when I use Batia and Aleeza’s products. The conditioner is great on my 4 year old’s curly locks too! And the products are All-Natural! Thanks!
I have been using Bio-Herbal Mineral Sculpting Gel for two years. I have noticed a complete change in my hair style. Not only do I not have to go to the beauty shop for a blow dry every day, I can do everything from my home. I wash and spray and my somewhat naturally curly hair springs to life. I would never go on vacation or ANYWHERE without it. The shampoo and conditioner are equally as good. They don’t change my color, but enhance my texture. I am so happy to have found this! I am no longer a slave to my hair. My hair style has become an asset to me.
You know how you collect all those bottles and jars of shampoos and conditioners and gels in the bathroom? Well, I still have them, but they never get used. All I need are three black bottles of Batia and Aleeza’s Hair Care Product line. The perfect shampoo, the perfect conditioner, the perfect gel are all I use. Whenever I see a woman with curly hair in the street, I want to run up to her and say, “Have I got a perfect hair care product for you! It’s the best!
