Recommended tailors in the Bellflower/Long Beach area?

I want to get my A-line dress altered to a high-low hem. 
I was wondering if any knotties had recommendations on where to go?

And if possible, does anyone know approximately how much I should be looking at spending?

ETA: The skirt is a total of 4 layers. Organza, tulle, tulle, skirt. There is no embroidery, kace, beading, or any other intricacies.

    This is all going to depend on the fabric and detailing of your dress.  I don't know of any seamstresses down in your area because I used on in the SF valley.  Good luck.

    Thank you. It's just with the cost of gas, it seemed silly to try to drive out too far.

    Decided to edit the original post with details about the skirt.

    I know of 2 places thanks to yelp but I was wondering if there were other ones knotties would recommend :)

    Just an update:

    I decided to go with someone I know who is an assistant head of a costume shop. She came as a reccomendations and I actually knew her since she had taught one of my university classes for a day (Costume Design to be exact)

    She's charging me $20 an hour and not expecting more than 10hrs. It's a little more than I anticipated but I told her I'd rather her take her time and get it done right. :)
