Im new to this Salon and I love the atmosphere and friendly staff. Hector gave me the best Deva curl ✂. My curls are much more noticeable and my hair feels so soft. Im very pleased. The receptionist and rest of the stylists are also very nice. They sell great products such as the Deva curl products and Amika. More...

This review is for Lilit. I have thick, curly and hard to manage hair. Lilit was amazing with listening to what I wanted and applying her professional skills to giving me what I wanted. It is so obvious that she loves what she does, and she is very good at it! Thank you Lilit for your your patience, your coaching and your professionalism during our many appointments together. I look forward to our next one. More...

I have fairly thick, curly hair, and Sarah did a tremendous job!  I've loved this haircut the day she cut it, the day after, the month after, and even six months later.  (This review is way overdue.)  Not only did she do an amazing job tailoring the cut to my hair, she explained a few easy tricks for managing my curls that don't take too much time.  It's made a world of difference.  Thank you, Sarah!

I was looking for a salon in the Pasadena area, I needed a change and when I came across Tangles on Yelp, I decided to give it a try.  It was super easy to make an appointment.I really needed a hair style, not a hair cut, a style, and that's exactly what I received.  Sarah was fantastic, she took the time to listen what I was looking for, she made some suggestions and we found a style that works for me.  The vibe of the salon is classy casual, the receptionist was very nice and welcoming. I can't thank Sarah enough!  Coming back for a color! I found my new Salon. Thank you! More...

I literally never leave reviews but I feel compelled. First time visiting this cute salon, and I got a partial highlight from Annelise. Can't recommend her enough, she has a super fun, sweet personality and a lot of integrity as a hairstylist. She took the time to truly understand the result I wanted and was so patient. My hair looks beautiful and feels healthy, plus the prices can't be beat. If you want a chill experience with someone who gets your vision go to Tangles and ask for Annelise! More...

What a treat to get my hair cut and colored here! The front desk lady really understood what I wanted . As a new client I was nervous about how an unknown stylist would approach my casual hair do. Nicole did great! She is super patient and sweet. What can I say? I WILL BE BACK! More...

Having recently decided to embrace my naturally wavy/curly hair I was in search of someone who can cut it right. Not everyone can cut curly hair and I was fed up with awful cuts. I worked with Cathy to schedule my appointment and it was easy and she was very helpful and friendly. Today I arrived and met Hector. He is simply amazing!! Answered every question I had. He showed me different techniques on styling my hair. I feel truly grateful to have found this salon and Hector. You guys are amazing and I will be back! I feel like I finally love my hair. More...

I gifted the Tangles Salon experience to my daughter.  We were both on a quest for new stylists (long story) and were generally apprehensive about a new salon search since we are People of Color (and even when salons promote themselves as 'Black Hair Salons' you have to proceed with extreme caution because some salons are not full service salons that offer services that would commonly be available at salons that are experienced at serving LatinX and Black clientele). Tangles Salon is an intimate space, that is aesthetically pretty and well appointed.  Reception is incredibly professional, appropriately friendly, and extremely client-focused.  It is clear that they truly care about their clients here...I suspect the owner takes a personal interest in ensuring that client's feel well-served as she seems quite lovely and hands-on.    I did not see many Clientele of Color nor many Stylists of Color.  The SALON's services are very specific, however.  Outside of Keratin treatments and Brazilian Blowouts, traditional hair straightening services are NOT available at Tangles and I do not feel comfortable characterizing this as a salon that is capable of offering full-service salon experience to clients of Color.  I was unable to receive the services I desired (relaxer and Demi-permanent Color).  However, my daughter is bi-racial: Her hair is mid way down her back and her hair texture is a soft curl.  She was able to receive the services she requested (deluxe blow dry including iron works) and had an excellent result with Lillit (who is warm and affable and absolutely a pro). All in all Tangles Salon is a wonderful salon.  However, it was advertised as a salon that offered services for clients of Color.  For many clients of Color, I believe that you may find the services offered at Tangles to be somewhat limited. However, If you are looking for an exceptional stylist skilled at working with a variety of hair textures and lengths, and who offers a full service salon for clients of all races and ethnicities, I found a home at Stylist Lee Salon in Hollywood.

Cathy is AMAZING!!! I was just visiting from New York and needed a haircut. she and her staff make you feel comfortable and at home right was, bringing you a drink and putting you in a smock, definitely pampering. Cathy listened to all of my wishes and worries and took care of me from start to finish. I love my cut and if I lived in LA I would come back EVERY TIME I needed a haircut!! More...

Gem of a salon. Lured here originally by a hard to find hair product and now totally in love with the cuts, extensions, color, and whole vibe. Owner is pretty much the nicest woman in the world. Chic, well-organized place with a small business heart. More...

Wonderful staff. Jeannie, the receptionist, explained the entire process to me when I made my first appointment and my stylist Nicole was fabulous. Gave my funky hair a great cut and gave me all the info, in detail, on keeping my hair looking good after I left the salon. I felt very happy and comfortable every step of the way. Love this place.

I had a wonderful experience from start to finish at Tangles. I have super curly hair --I learned I'm a 3B-- and I have never had any hairstylist teach me so much about how to care for my hair before visiting Tangles. I worked with Hector and he was well trained in treating, shaping, and caring for curly hair. After 27 years of blindly experimenting on my hair, I learned what I was doing wrong and all the things I could be doing right. I love when someone can teach me something and I left Tangles with a wealth of knowledge about curly hair treatment. If you have curly hair, I strongly recommend that you invest your time (2 hours) in the Deva Curl Haircut. If Hector was any indication, all stylists at Tangles are well-equipped and knowledgeable about all hair types. This is truly the first salon I've visited that had confident hairstylists who could work on curly hair. Others would shutter away and just charge me more because my hair was "difficult". I had the opposite experience at Tangles and look forward to future stylings. Highly recommended! More...

If you are looking for an outstanding and quality hair salon, you don't need to look further. I have found the perfect place for you. The last three years, they are the winner for the best hair salon in Pasadena. This location is in the heart of Old Town Pasadena. This is a hidden gemParking: Free 90 minutes parking structure on De LaceyPrice: ModerateI was referred to this place by my friend, Carrie. I am a super picky person when it comes to my hair. I would say my standard is extremely high. This place definitely does not disappoint.First of all, making my appointment was easy as 1,2,3. I had the pleasure of working with manager-Jeannie, she was pleasant, friendly , organized and accommodating to my work schedule. Jeannie is the hair match.com. Since I have never been here before, I was asked to send a picture of my current hair style and color. She then found the perfect match for me. I love my new master colorist/stylist-Lilit. In addition, she also served me unlimited red wine. Yes please, hit me one more time!!!!!This salon is elegant, trendy, professional and transparent. I hate going to salon only to be hit with hidden cost. I was given a quote. I paid my deposit and an email of my upcoming service was email to me. I was charged less than my quote as I was given a discount. This is because I am a first time customer. How awesome are these people. I was also given a welcome packet with additional saving coupons for future visit. Upon meeting Lilit-my stylist, I knew immediately I would love her. She is fashionable, young and hip. I felt comfortable and trusted her right away. I could tell she is classically trained, creative and is a perfectionist. She gave me a great consultation and is a great listener. She gave me lots of great recommendations. I came out from the salon with bouncing,  smooth, shinning, vibrant and healthy hair. You should have seen me, I was coming out of the salon like those hair commercial...lol.. I love my color and cut. She color corrected the last salon that screwed up my hair. I also got an invigorating hair massage. I can't say enough about this salon and stylist, they definitely got a life time customer. This was a phenomenal salon experience. You must check out this place. You will not be disappointed. This place is yelp worthy! More...

Annelise did an amazing job with my hair! My hair has always been thick and long and she was very intricate and spent time making sure every detail was correct. The staff was overall very friendly and welcoming. I appreciate the attention to detail and the care that I experienced here. I will definitely be revisiting!!! Thank you tangles! More...

If you're a curly girl- you NEED to come to this salon. I have cut my hair there twice now and both times it has been amazing. Their stylist are certified in the Deva cut hairstyle and they are so knowledgeable about how to cut and take care of curly hair. And the best part is that they pass on that knowledge to you. Since coming to the salon my hair has been the best it has ever been because now I know exactly how to take care of it. I have stopped buying hundreds of products in an attempt to find something that works, because the stuff that they recommend to you absolutely works. My latest haircut was with Hector and he was amazing. I had long hair for 7 years and he gave me a dramatic short cut, and with his knowledge of how to cut curly hair it came out so much better than it would have at a regular salon. 100% recommend this place and Hector.

I have been a customer at Tangles several times and each time has resulted in a beautiful hairstyle, cut, and/or color! I really love seeing Julina as she listens to my concerns and "wants" and I always look great afterwards! The atmosphere at Tangles is friendly and professional and it is a beautiful place to relax for a little while and be taken care of by the outstanding stylists! More...

I found Tangles Salon in Pasadena, CA due to their great reviews. I scheduled an appointment with Cathy/Owner...she simply gets it! Level of service=Top Notch, great listener, sensitive to picky customers & was not intimidated by any means...she knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of hair cut & description I detailed.  Very confident & truly proved to know her trade...I highly recommend friends & family to her. Worth evert penny & more...I'll be referring friends of mine. More...

Tangle disappoints! I was able to get a last minute appointment the day before Mother's Day. My appointment was with Bree. She's very sweet and light handed with your hair. Pleasant conversation. Mimosa? Yes thank you. My hair was shiny,  bouncy, and pretty thank you my dear!! More...

I found this place when my previous "go to"place called and cancelled last minute on me. They where able to get me in on the same day in about a few hours from when I called. The place is really nice inside, there are many chairs and stylist. Also theres a small room/closet to change into a black robe to keep your clothes clean and a rack to hang your coat. The girl who attend me was Nicole she was very sweet and professional, she took the time to hear me out in what I was looking to do to my hair (get rid of the blond in my ends from an over due ombré) in short I love the out come! And even better when Nicole offered a free toner in two weeks to freshen up any wash out I may have! I'm glad I found this place I will definitely be coming back. They only down side is the parking which if you are from Pasadena you already know how hard it is to park especially in old town which is where the salon is close to. Tip- bring quarters to park on the street or use the parking structure on De Lacey street and make the 2-5 min walk.. (free 90 min parking) More...

Lyn I can't thank you enough for the wonderful cut and ur generous spirit. I cut 14 inches off my hair to donate and Lyn made me feel comfortable to do so. My hair is a big part of my identity so cutting that much off is like losing 20,000 of my kids. I was in such good hands. Making an appt was easy. The lady asked me a ton of questions to make sure she set me up with the right stylist. When I came in I was greeted by the very friendly receptionist and given coffee (the way to my heart: coffee) and then I was taken in to be scalped (jk). I saw another stylist there with a great cut and I pointed to her n said 'I want that cut' and that's the cut I got- granted it's a bit shorter than the other stylist's cut. I didn't wanna go quite that short but meh, hair grows. Lyn was meticulous and really listened to what I wanted and made recommendations on how to style my new do. Ariel was the assistant and she was friendly and wonderful too!The salon was clean and nice (and busy!) everyone was just super friendly and welcoming and man I'm just glad i came here to take this very scary plunge!

Seriously, I can't say enough great things about the entire team here. My experience getting a Deva Cut the first time was so great, I had to come back! This time, for a Deva Cut Mini, and Pintura Highlights. Let me start by saying, this was my first time going through with Pintura Highlights (in actuality, this was my first highlight/color experience), and I absolutely loved the end result! I was going for a subtle, natural look and Cathy was great about listening to my wants and needs, all while providing her own input which she felt would add depth to my look. All my fellow curly headed beauties can relate, finding a hair dresser who truly knows the intricacies of curly hair, can be difficult but, Cathy absolutely nailed it and far exceeded my expectations!Anyone who is looking for a salon who offers high quality work, and the highest level of professionalism, look no further, this is the salon for you!

Nichole saved my wedding day!!!! My hair was in really bad shape, the color was a mess and it was one week before my wedding. Being new to town, I didn't know who to trust, thank goodness I found Tangles and was recommended to see Nichole! She gave me a great cut and  color correction that really transformed my color to exactly what I wanted. Nichole really took her time in listening to what I wanted and was so skilled in her technique that it is really one of the best color jobs I have ever had. She was a joy to spend a couple hours with and I will definitely go back. I also really enjoyed the salon as a whole, as everyone was friendly and helpful and I loved seeing the diversity of the customers they had, all leaving happy and looking good! More...

Nicest people in the world. I went to see Sarah for a l'oreal profiber treatment weeks ago (my hair is super damaged) and the salon greeted my promptly, got me gowned and seated right away, with a cup of coffee in my hand. It was so refreshing when so many salons are always running late or don't have the whole greeting thing together. Sarah assured me that yes, my hair was totally damaged, but there was hope, and made me feel better that lots of people go through periods like this with their hair. I would definitely be back as they're so nice and the salon is in a charming area of Pasadena. More...

This place is adorable and pretty funky. It makes me want to have hair in about 13 different colors all at once. More importantly, I have never had a bad haircut from this place. I find things work out particular well if you bring a photo of something you like. Samantha did an outstanding job with my short pixie and has helped me grow it out without looking silly. Now I have an adorable bob with bangs. More...

I have crazy dry curly hair that was not cute and no one could ever cut right.. I was a little nervous about going to a salon as this is not really my thing, but from the moment that I walked in I felt welcomed and comfortable. An hour and a half later I was leaving with my hair in a shape that I have never seen and an understanding of how to style and deal with it! Thank you Bri, I love my new do and at a great price! I will be back! More...

I had an awesome experience at Tangles this weekend! I've been getting my hair cut by the curl specialists at Devachan for the past ten years, but since Devachan's just closed their only west coast location, I had to find an alternate stylist. Devachan recommended Tangles, since their stylists are Devacut certified. I was super nervous to try a new salon, especially since I was going in with the intent to cut 8 inches off my hair, but Tangles has super good vibes that put me at ease. My stylist, Lynn, was incredibly patient with my new-stylist nerves and she gave me the confidence to move forward with my intended cut (I was totally going to chicken out and just get a trim). She put a lot of time and care into my haircut and gave me an adorable new cut that's exactly what I was hoping for. Lynn and the Tangles crew definitely know curls. I'm thrilled with my haircut and with the whole experience. I will definitely be returning to Lynn and Tangles for all my future styling needs. More...

I've been looking for a salon to stay loyal to. It's hard for me to commit to a specific place because I look for many things in a salon. By far, Tangles has met all my expectations. So I'm definitely coming back! I met Stephanie, one of the stylists, at my workplace. We talked about hair and I told her I was looking to cut my hair soon. I cut my hair about every year or 1 1/2 years because I grow it out to donate. She suggested that I come visit Tangles. She gave me her business card, but I misplaced it. So I looked Tangles up on Yelp and set up an appointment.I called Tangles and the receptionist set me up with an appointment with Lynn, on Saturday, 1/21/17. I usually do a normal bob just above my shoulders, but this time I got the courage to try an A-line long bob! Unfortunately I was pretty vague with Lynn. I just told her to cut my hair as she pleased, just as long as I can put it in a ponytail. And she did just that! My cut is amazing! I also informed her that I wanted to put highlights in my hair. Something that would give my hair some dimension, and as long as the color did not damage my hair. Definitely no bleach! I didn't have a preference in color. She chose out a nice light brown, and assured me that the color only uses natural oils. Therefore it wouldn't damage my hair. (Don't worry, I intend on cutting away the color before donating the next time around)I love the way Lynn cut and colored my hair. I was very vague on how I wanted my hair, but she has made me fall in love with my new bob! I'm glad I had the courage to try it. Another great thing about Tangles is, if you're donating the cut is free! So I just paid for my other services which was just my color. Its amazing how Tangles offers the cut to be free if you're donating your hair. I'm glad that they care and support what I do! I'm definitely coming back again and again and definitely referring my friends and family! More...

I have been coming to Tangles hair salon for several years. I have curly hair and could never figure out how to make it look good without the frizz etc. Stephanie is fantastic and I have never been happier. The Deva products are great and my hair is now healthier than it has ever been. I highly recommend Tangles if you have curly hair. Stephanie is wonderful and does a great job. More...

12 January 2017

So Fortunate! I moved to Pasadena from Michigan. I had been with my stylist for many years, so she suggested I look at the list of Redken expert colorists online. Luckily, Tangles is within walking distance from my new residence, and they have a Redken specialist. Lyn is my new stylist and I am absolutely delighted with her! I hesitated about writing this review, because I didn't want so many people to start coming to Tangles that I wouldn't be able to get an appointment! More...

I came to Cathy after I got three really bad haircuts in a row from my previously beloved hair dresser. My hair was in really bad shape and it needed a lot of help.I have curly hair which takes special care.After I saw Cathy for the first time I started getting compliments on my hair, from strangers, friends and family right away! I hadn't had that kind of response to my hairstyle in many years - I thought I was too old to get compliments on my hair the way I used to when I was younger. Thank you Cathy! It's such a wonderful feeling! More importantly, I'm immeasurably happier with my hair and more confident as a result. Cathy is able to quickly interpret what I generally want done with my hair even though I am not good at "hair speak" or "beauty lingo". She's so talented that she takes what I want to a level of shape and color that I didn't even consider possible before I started seeing her.Everyone at Tangles is super nice and kind which I also greatly appreciate.I can't recommend Tangles Salon enough. Go - you will not be disappointed. More...

I have been coming to Tangles for the past 2 years. I have curly hair and get regular cuts from Brie S. The salon is a few blocks from shopping and cute cafes and restaurants but not right in the thick of it, which is nice and makes parking a bit easier. I have always had a great experience here, the staff is professional and friendly, the service is great and the prices are decent. My mom started coming here as well on my recommendation, and she loves it too! More...

I have never been disappointed with the results here. I am  a red head and getting the right color is not always easy but the stylists here are wonderful and talented. Great atmosphere to treat yourself. My teen daughter also lives Tangles.Great location in old town but far enough away to avoid crowds and find parking. There is only street parking.Blowouts cuts dye styling are all great. They use quality products. I enjoy coming here. More...

My hair is exceptionally curly, and after my last hairdresser moved, I was worried that no one would be able to color, cut or style it.  A friend told me about Bri-and I couldn't be happier.  She is super sweet, professional, and her ability to work with all hair types is amazing. I get compliments on my color and texture-and it's all Bri.  She is trained on the Deva method and she understands curly hair.  I can honestly say, I have not met a stylist/colorist who I trust more (never cuts too much, gets the color right every time, never gossips). I have been putting off reviewing Bri because I wanted to keep her to myself, but it wouldn't be fair when so many others need hair help too. The staff at Tangles are wonderful and the prices are reasonable-you won't be disappointed. More...

I've been going to Tangles for a couple of years or so and have always been happy with the experience.  The people are fantastic, the service and attention to detail are great, and the atmosphere is modern but warm and comfortable.  Parking has never been an issue for me because I book my appointments before 11 a.m. when parking on the street is free.  There is also a parking garage adjacent to the salon.  My stylist is Bri and I always look forward to seeing her.  She is down-to-earth, always smiling, makes great conversation, and I trust all of her suggestions/recommendations. I love the location as well.  It's in a great, little neighborhood in Old Town Pasadena with all sorts of cute shops and restaurants within walking distance so it's easy to make a fun day of it!

I've known Cathy for over 25 years.  She started with my husband's hair and soon after she became my stylist.  I have followed her to several locations.  We always, always have a laugh fest when we get together.  All the staff are friendly.  They are good about watching the meters when you park on the street.  Can't imagine changing from Cathy unless she retires... will cross that bridge when that happens.  Keep up the good work.

Tangles is a wonderful salon! I have been a client for years. Their staff is friendly, caring and very professional! My stylist, Lyn, is extremely talented and has done my hair over the decades. She always keeps me looking current and is a master of color and cut! I cannot recommend her and this salon highly enough! More...

During my recent visit around the Pasadena area, I stopped here for a haircut. Due to bad past experiences with new stylists I was a little nervous of the end results. From the beginning I liked that I didn't need to make an appointment ahead of time and walk ins were a norm... yay! The receptionist directed me to Sarah C. She cut my hair perfectly without adding too many unnecessary layers, gave me a great blow dry and even styled my hair with curls. I was super impressed how great my hair looked and felt afterwards. I knew that I needed to re-do the color on my hair so I went in the next day to get that done, again I loved it! Thanks for a great job Sarah It won't be the last time I visit this salon! Definitely recommend this cute, chic and clean salon to others! More...

Everyone at Tangles is incredibly customer service focused - very impressed. From Jeannie who spent a long time on the phone with me to understand my needs before I booked my appointment to my stylist Nicole who truly wanted to ensure I was happy. They LISTEN to your needs and try very hard to meet/exceed expectations. If you are looking for a friendly environment with a team who cares about you, Tangles is the place for you. More...

First of all this is the BEST salon in Pasadena. Everyone is so nice and friendly, but I'm here to talk about my hairstylist Sarah. She is definitely an artist and is super sweet. You can tell she loves her job and does amazing work, she's a great listener when it comes to what I want and explains everything so I can understand the process of what can be done. And another thing she gives the best shampoos! And when I mean the best I'm not exaggerating she can really make you feel relaxed and ready for some bubbly. The last thing I love that she does is her blow dry, I have long, curly, frizzy hair and she can make my hair so shinny and zero frizz with her blow dries and it doesn't take long. If you're in search for a stylist I would so recommend Sarah. She has given me the best haircuts and color ever. You won't regret it. More...

Hi I am looking for hair stylist Salazar who used to work here around 2007/2008 . Does anybody know where he is now? He gave me the best hair cut ever in my life!!Thanks

Ask for Nicole! She's great! She's willing to give you what you want and always asks questions to ensure you're happy and get exactly what you ask for. Bringing a picture of what you want always helps too :) She's very knowledgable in color so don't hesitate to ask her for her opinion or tips on how to take care of your colored hair. And if you got time to let her style and blowout your hair, do it! She's amazing at that too. More...

Very pleased with my cut and color by Nicole on 7/7/2016. I asked for a highlighting that would help blend the grey with my darker original color rather than covering the grey with a dark dye. I also wanted a trim to my slightly below shoulder length hair. The color is exactly what I asked for and though I was ready to try something dramatic, the difference is actually very subtle but does reduce the appearance of the grey quite significantly. The cut also seemed very slight but it made a really big difference in the body and style of my hair. It is very fine and straight and the slight layers give it bounce and allow it to hold a curl at the ends it didn't before. Really one of the best haircuts I've ever had.Overall my hair looks much better so people have noticed that it looks great but not that the cut or color is different. More...

My level of commitment phobia when it comes to salons is pretty impressive.  It's always been hard for me to find a stylist who cares enough to slowly get to know my hair and how I like it cut, and I can be pretty ruthless when it comes to moving from salon to salon (though I always feel guilty about it).  So I almost never write reviews for them cause it feels too "official" for me.I've had some interesting stylists at various places over the years.  One used to cut hair when she was high.  Another was a middle-aged divorcee who claims I convinced her to get high for the first time.  So Tangles was almost too normal for me at first.I started getting my hair cut by Bri when I worked nearby.  She and I initially fought over - and eventually took turns sharing - a parking spot.  I guess that was a sign she was destined to tame my sideburns on a regular basis.  Now it's been over six months since I stopped working near the salon, but I'm still driving there for haircuts, which is pretty serious for me.  Bri is both skilled and friendly, and most importantly has invested in learning my hair and what I like.  I don't have to remind her every time about my cowlick; she knows exactly where it is.  She's also a dog mom, and keeps me updated on her dogs' adventures (or just shows me photos on their Instagram).  Plus she never cuts my hair when she's high.  The environment of the salon is clean and modern - it was renovated not long ago - and Jeanie, Cathy and the rest of the crew are some of the coolest people you'll ever meet while getting your hair cut.So there, I'm "officially" reviewing a salon.  I may never wanna admit that I'm settling down at one... but that doesn't mean it's not happening.

I have never had a bad experience at Tangles Salon - only satisfying and enjoyable experiences for my whole family! From coloring and cuts, to up-do's, to giving my child his first haircut, to scheduling appointments - the results and service I've experienced are top-notch. The salon is clean, warm, and welcoming, and the staff are professional, kind, supportive, and helpful. I especially appreciate that Tangles Salon places value on supporting non-profit events and fundraisers in the community with token - but meaningful - product donations to play a part in positive community impact as a small Lancaster County business. I won't go anywhere else! More...

I love this hair salon! Sandy Chapman was my hair stylist and she put blonde highlights all throughout my hair and red highlights on the underneath. My hair is VERY hard to lift, but she's the only one who's managed to make it look so good the first time! When she cut my hair and gave my layers, it's the nicest, cleanest cut I've ever had! She even spent more time on my hair to add in highlights where she felt was needed (because my hair is SUPER thick). All the ladies there are soooo nice and I know they could've done just as great also! They are all so talented and I could've spent the whole day in there, they are great! It wasn't overpriced like all of the other places I've been to (and those places didn't even do half as good as Sandy did). Definitely going back!! ���� More...

My hair desperately needed a new style and Nicole did a fantastic job. I have wavy/curly hair that had fallen flat and Nicole's cut brought it back to life! She even showed me how to style using the Devacurl method and I kept getting compliments! Overall, service is great. Super friendly, clean, and organized. More...

I have been coming here since June of 2015, I have Cathy & Hector do my hair each and every time. The environment is Soo wonderful, customer service is fantastic! Location is soo convenient. Park meters right up front or a parking structure on the side. It always smells Soo good inside too!My hair is extremely curly and I have been wanting it to get very very long, but my hair takes forever to grow! Since I've been coming here, my hair grows slowly! But it does grow!!! They are just Soo wonderful here. I recommend this place highly! Thank you Tangles!!!!! More...

I've been floating around to different places in Pasadena in search of someone who can cut curly hair, and after looking at some pictures online as well as the reviews, I recently decided to try Tangles. I'm so glad I did.  I recently had my hair cut by Danielle, and I haven't had a short haircut that looked so good in quite some time! With curly hair, it's hard to find someone who can keep your hair from turning into a triangle when you cut it short, but the Deva Cut that I had done was fantastic. My hair looked good after the cut, which is extremely rare as my curls prefer to freak out over hair cuts.Danielle is also fantastic. She listened to what I wanted to do with my hair and then made my hair look good. Since my hair cut, I've gone through an entire cycle with this hair. Even on washing days, which are the days when my hair tends to frizz the most, my hair has looked good. A good cut really does make a difference. I would definitely recommend Tangles' Deva Cut to anyone with curly hair! It's worth it. More...

I was so lucky to be able to have the opportunity to attend the Yelp event here. In the cute outdoor shopping area in Pasadena Tangles salon has a super chic salon. It's a great area with a ton of shops, work out studios, and trendy restaurants. If I lived closer to that area I would definitely go more often. They have many options for parking or meters along the street.The event really gave the hair stylists a chance to showcase their talents. When I arrived at the studio I was greeted by Katie B. Katie is in charge of Yelp LA. It was really cool to see how the Yelp community is such a real thing. It was more than just sitting behind my computer to tell my experience. Everyone that was invited conversed and understood what good service is.Yelp really knows how to throw an event. Champagne, and horderves were provided upon entry. Every yelper was assigned to a certain stylist. The stylists were sweet, and excited. They gave us three different looks. First, they she gave me a top knot look. After each look they had a photographer taking pictures in front of a yelp back drop. Hence my profile pic! The second look they gave me was a braid . She gave me a really cool fish tail braid that wrapped around my head. So cute! Lastly, I got a full shampoo & blowout! She was sweet enough to style all my extremely long extensions too. We were also lucky enough to get our make-up done. I forgot her name but she did a really good job at giving me fierce winged eye liner. I fell in love with my blow out and the studio. The salon itself is so chic. It has a really good vibe to it too. You feel like its a salon you can trust. They also provided the cutest gift bag which everyone got. It came with a ton of yelp accessories and coupons. Amazing and so kind! I definitely recommend trying out this salon. I love it! More...

Been coming here to get my haircut for about six months, maybe longer. I must say I really love coming here. The environment is amazing the staff is absolutely wonderful and very accommodating. I live in Tarzana so Tangles Salon isn't exactly around the corner from me which should say a lot. I get my haircut by Hector. For someone who is as picky as you can be about my own hair it's me. Hector always knows what I'm looking for. Of course it's always helpful if you bring in a picture of what your looking for either style or color wise and because I have fine hair to begin with I can't just style it but every time I get a cut Hector always does a fantastic job! They even give you the option of coming in for a "tune up," yes your car is not the only thing that needs to be maintained. So coming in to get the edges cleaned up is crucial. So come in for a great cut and friendly service! Got to run a cut and color is in order! Cheers! XOXO More...

Bri is AWESOME!!! After using the same hair stylist for 10 years in Seattle, I was skeptical I would ever find another person that would meet my needs and expectations. However, after moving to So Cal I had to find someone new & local to the area. I researched stylists & salons as much possible, yelped and read other reviews, viewed Instagram pics, website surfed & finally decided to give Bri a try! I was NOT disappointed at all! She matched my shade of blonde perfectly and gave me a terrific cut! She is sweet, talented & knowledgable!!! I'm sooo excited I found her and so is my hair! :) Thanks Bri and Tangles Salon. I will be back in the very near future!! More...

Love this salon. They always try to get us an appointment, even when I call on a busy Saturday.  They are fantastic with my sons.

Great salon to get a Deva Cut! I wanted to finally try getting a deva cut and I am in love. Instead of driving far to Capella salon for it, going to Pasadena was a reasonable distance for me. My stylist was Stephanie and she was the nicest person I have ever met. She took care of my hair and made sure my cut was to my desire. The receptionist was also a sweetheart and I am definitely coming back for a trim. Thank you Tangles Salon for your great service! More...

I only cut my hair about once every 4-6 months, and a few months back I decided to visit Tangles and get a cut and color. My stylist was Nicole, and she was really good about working with me to get the exact color I wanted. The cut wasn't anything fancy, but it was also good. It's only now that my hair is really growing out that I realize how well done the cut was! Even though it's longer, the shape is still very distinct, almost like I just recently had it cut and styled. I'm pretty impressed with this, and even though I'm not due for another visit for awhile, I'm definitely going back to see Nicole! More...

Trust me: it's not easy to find a salon with stylists who REALLY understand curly hair--the wide variety of types, what each needs and thus, the importance of individualized approaches. So after a lifetime of mostly hits and misses, my curly hair has found its home: Tangles IS that salon and Bri is that sylist!!I was impressed with Bri from the outset. She was friendly and personable, asked good questions, listened carefully to the ups and downs of previous experiences and to what I was looking for (e.g., nothing too structured or processed) AND most importantly, she 'got' my hair (a subtle blend of finer curly, straight, wavy that can be a challenge precisely because it is no one thing). Long story short: Bri gave me an excellent cut in two stages: first, before the shampoo. Then after the shampoo, conditioning and finger styling with Deva Curl products, she made little adjustments, based on the way my hair was falling, curling. The result: a perfect cut--soft, natural looking and feeling. She also showed/explained how I could get the same results at home, even writing down the steps in the process.I have since made the shampoo and simple styling process--which takes just a few minutes now-- my own; and I continue to love the result and get compliments from family and friends--and even from strangers. And I introduced my husband to Tangles and Bri; now he, too, is a believer!Yes, you will also certainly enjoy the attractive, clean and neat salon and the other friendly personnel. But go to Tangles, first and foremost, for the expertise. You will be so happy you did!! More...

Had to find a new salon when we moved to Pasadena and since I have typically done the "wheel of hair cutters" at Supercuts in the past (you get whomever cuts hair the fastest with a wide range of outcomes), had no compunction picking the salon closest to where I now lived which happened to be Tangles.I was assigned Bri, and when she asked how short I wanted my hair I blurted out a vague memory of the level of the blades at my last cut, "2 on the side and 4 on the top" I think I said...after she had been cutting for a few minutes and remarking over and over again that my hair "sure grew fast" I realized I had given the wrong settings...I looked like she was preparing me for marine bootcamp.....lesson learned...the next time we nailed it.The fee is reasonable (like $35?)..Bri is personable...the facility clean and cordial....I have finally upgraded from SuperCuts to a Salon...

This review is 4 years overdue.  I met Michelle B. in 2011 and she is till my number one stylist! I get bored of my hair often so when I go in to see her we talk about what I want and don't want.  However, most of the time I have no clue what I want.  I have had super short hair, super long hair, layers, no layers, color, no color, bangs, no bangs, you name it, she can do it.  She is friendly, helpful, caring, and extremely talented.  I love her!

I was looking for a new salon to go to and a friend recommended trying this place out for a cut and color. After browsing the website and the stylists Instagram pages I decided to make an appointment with Julie. Julie was great! She's so friendly and sweet. I went in for a balayage and a cut. I've been to salons (ahem, Glendale!) where it feels like it's social hour for the stylists, where they take phone calls, have friends visit, etc, but Julie and the rest of the staff were very attentive the entire time and not once did it feel like she forgot about me. After returning from my visit with Julie I was a little bummed about how dark my hair still was. Julie did a great job but I was hoping for something a little lighter. I reached out to Julie again and she graciously booked another appointment for me. The second time my hair was looking exactly how I wanted. After testing out countless salons, I am really happy to finally find a salon and stylist I can return to! More...

I really love this salon. I've been going for about 2 years now, after my stylist moved here from another salon. I'm always greeted immediately and made to feel welcome.The salon is lovely, nicely decorated, and is kept up very well. Also, the owner is really supportive of training and updating techniques for the stylists, which I love. Parking is sometimes an issue, as it is an any Old Town business, but when I park at a meter, the front desk staff are always kind enough to refill it for me if it's close to expiring and I'm not done yet. Such a nice and customer-friendly little touch! More...

She completely understood what I wanted and made it happen. She took her time and gave me one of the best haircuts I've ever had. I was equally impressed with the salon's friendly personnel. Making an appointment was very easy and the prices very reasonable. I came out of Tangles with a big smile on my face. More...

I've gone to the same colorist and salon for 8 years in Newport Beach, even when I relocated to TX.  However, now in Pasadena I knew it was time to move on since making appts at the other salon was harder and there have been many management changes.I'm so thrilled to report that not only do I love everyone at Tangles, but I found the best hairdresser and I don't plan on going anywhere else.  Bri S.  Is amazing!!!  I didn't even have any apprehension when my friend referred me, and when I met her I was even more relaxed.She's professional, talented and gives you exactly what you ask for and gently guides you if you're straggling down the wrong path.I can't wait until my next appt.  This salon and everyone in there is incredible. And Bri is the absolute BEST! More...

I have always had a love/hate relationship with my hair...and most of the time it was hate all the way. My hair is fine and straight...parts of it grow down like normal...but some parts grow up, yeah like straight up...and then there are the spots where it grows sideways...and then there is the small and inexplicable bald spot. All of this coupled with the deep emotional scars caused by a really bad haircut in 4th grade and well, I have hair issues. There is only one person on this planet who can tame my troubled tresses and the is Michelle B. at Tangles.Michelle is not only a talented hair stylist but she is also a sweet and patient person. I am that nightmare client who shows up with long blonde hair and wants it dyed a deep red...and then a month later wants it blonde again...and then pink...and then purple...and then blonde again...and then wants it all cut off...and then wants to grow it out...you get the picture. Anyway, Michelle has taken me through all colors and lengths and I have always been very happy with the results. As for the salon...I love it!!! Everyone is so friendly!!! I am always greeted by name, and immediately offered a beverage. They will also feed your meter for you if you are parked on Green Street. What I also love about Tangles is the level of professionalism...it is difficult to balance a fun and friendly atmosphere while still keeping it professional but Tangles does that very well.

My hair would be a hideous rat's nest if it weren't for Michelle B. This girl keeps my hair on point.I pretty much let her have carte blanche on my mane and she's never made me want to shave my head (even when I've volunteered to model for a color or cut class, she'll do her thing to further her education on all things hair, and of it's not a good fit for my face/style, she'll immediately remedy the situation to something even more fabulous). It's impressive that all these years following her around, she continues to hone her craft and go above and beyond to provide the best service to anyone that sits in her chair. Whether a simple cut, a drastic 'do change, or some color tweaks, she'll hook it up with a look that suits your style!The salon is great, too! They offer you a beverage upon arrival and will keep an eye on your meter if you park on the street! More...

As my fellow curly girls will know, finding someone who can really cut curly hair is near impossible. If you want to avoid the dreaded triangle hair or shelf-layer, you have to find an expert. After hearing about the deva-curl system and method of hair cutting specifically tailored to curly locks, I knew I had to find someone to do it. I found Tangles Salon through the search function on naturallycurly.com, and the reviews led me to an appointment for a deva cut with the owner Cathy.I was really nervous and excited for the appointment. The service was great from start to finish, their receptionist was wonderful and offered me a drink while I waited which was nice, and they have a little room to hang up a coat or shirt you don't want to get wet and robes in an assortment of sizes to wear while getting your hair done. This touch is wonderful - I hate when I have somewhere to be and my whole back is wet from coming from the salon!Cathy is a master at what she does. The deva cut is a cut done on your normally curly-styled hair dry so they can follow and understand your curl pattern to sculpt shape. The scary words here are "sculpt" and "shape," because beyond the technique of dry cutting individual curls, there is also an artistry to understanding how much length cut will affect bounce and where the curl falls. Cathy is a true artist and really understands the intricacies of curly hair. Each time I have gone a few days later I style my own hair, look at it, and am just impressed with the shape she is able to give my hair while maintaining maximum curl. They will also teach you how to style your hair for maximum curls and minimum frizz your first appointment, which is really great because no matter how much you read about the deva method, having someone show you is really priceless.Another thing that is rare in my experience is finding stylists who respect if you are trying to grow your hair out. I like my hair long. I am in a perpetual state of wanting my hair longer (but not at the risk of dead, split ends!) I've had so many haircuts where I go in wanting just the split and dead ends cut off and some shaping done, but most of the length left, only to be talked out of it and going home holding back tears at how short my mane is. Cathy is REALLY great about this. I wanted to keep my hair as long as possible? Awesome. No further questions about it. She really listens to what her clients want while posing options that will help them achieve the overall look they desire (like when she recommended a slightly different take on the bangs I wanted, which was wonderful because she knew more about how the would fall post-cut than I did, and she was right. But at no point did she try to talk me out of bangs.)They use the Deva line here and mention the products an appropriate amount, which is nice. I already use the line and somehow am never low on product when I get my haircut, but I've never had someone be overly pushy about buying product. They tell you what would work and why and make things available, but never make you uncomfortable if you don't feel like picking up product. That is the mark of good salesmanship.So to all my curly haired friends, go to Tangles, go to Cathy, get a Deva cut, laugh about the awkward squishing-in-of-product, and rejoice. You won't regret it.PS - Parking here is great too - there is a public lot just around the corner that has the first 90 minutes free and is inexpensive after that. I highly recommend parking there instead of dealing with meters. More...

I bought a Groupon for a blow out and came in yesterday. I had an appointment with Brie (sp?)She was very nice and took a few minutes to ask me if there was anything specific I wanted for my blow out. She got started and was actually done in about 30 minutes which I was pleasantly surprised by. When I looked at my hair it looked great! I was really happy with how much volume she gave me and that I could still run my fingers through my hair.Parking was a bit of a hassle so just give yourself some time to find a spot. I would definitely come in to see Brie for a blow out again. More...

I got my hair cut at another salon a few months back. I had long curly hair and I had told the guy I wanted it shorter and showed him some pinterest pictures. He literally just cut my hair straight across. Not the best style for someone with curly hair. I finally decided to come to Tangles and see if they could put some layers in to make it look better. Bri was my stylist and she was super sweet and listened to what I was asking for. She just made a few changes and added in a little bit of layering, but it looks a lot better! I told Bri that I didn't want it blown out because I wanted to see how it would dry naturally. Bri took the time to show me how to style my curls with the Deva curl products...it was not a quick process but I thought it was sweet that she let me sit and wait for my hair to dry so she could make sure I liked how it looked curly. Thanks Bri! More...

I can love my hair again!I'm very low maintenance, especially with my hair. I hate having it down because it always blows in my face or gets in my way when I'm trying to snack (it was definitely time for a haircut). I found this place on Groupon ($50 got me a haircut and a deep conditioning treatment). Super! I didn't have to hurt my wallet trying out a new place.I met with Isabel who took wonderful care of me! We got into talking about our dogs and after a wash and snips here and there, my hair was voluminous and wavy. I even walked down Colorado Blvd and got a few compliments running some errands. I passed up on the deep conditioning (I've been reading ingredient labels on everything and I'm really careful when it comes to toxins) and opted for a blow-dry for my next visit. Isabel doesn't normally take substitutes for her already amazing Groupon offer, but she did when I told her how hesitant I was when it came to chemicals anywhere near me.Fast forward a month later, I came in for a blow-dry prior to an event I was hosting. I was dressing as Kate Middleton and needed some good waves that would last me the night. Of course, she wows me again with a great look. But what really makes the difference is her educating me on how to do all of this myself at home.I took her advice on how to use velcro curlers immediately the next day as not to lose the bounce and volume I had from my visit with her. And my hair never looked so great! I had a wedding to attend and I looked fresh from the salon (without actually needing to step foot back into one!). Thank you, Isabel! More...

Cathy does an amazing job with color. She has been doing my highlights/low lights for over a year. She never disappoints. Jeanie at the reception desk is always very pleasant and sweet. Offering coffee or water when you check-in. Bree and Julie are also very nice. Without a doubt, you always feel welcome no matter how busy they are. More...

After seeing good reviews for Tonya on a website for people with curly hair, I decided to check her out. She was great, as was the person who shampooed my hair (didn't catch her name). I showed Tonya a picture of the cut I wanted and she got right to it. She was very friendly and really listened to what I wanted.My hair looks great now! I cut about a foot off, so it was a bit scary, but she really made me feel comfortable. I will definitely be going back to her.Plus, the nice young lady at the front counter (Juliana, I think?) was great! She added a quarter to my parking meter so I wouldn't run out of time.Overall, Tonya at Tangles was amazing and I highly recommend this salon. More...

I went to this Salon today for the 1st time since I had a Groupon for Blow Dry Special. This salon is located on Green St, arking is available at meters or 90 minutes comlimentary parking at Delacey Public parking garage, $2 for every 30 minutes thereafter. I got to the salon 15 minutes before my appointment but I was welcomed by lady at Front desk who kindly offered me choice of beverage (tea, water, coffee) while waiting for my stylist. Unfortunately I was assisted by my Stylist Danielle 20 minutes past my Appointment time as she was still finishing up with customer ahead of me.Danielle was friendly, pleasant and made my hair look beautiful. Salon has modern, clean look, only area that needs improvement is to assist customers at scheduled appointment time, that's the whole idea of making an appointment. Aside from that, conveniently located, very clean, and I almost forgot they even check with you to see if you parked at meters and if necessary for you to give them some change so that they can feed meter while preventing you from getting a ticket;) More...

Tangles was selected for me, as Michelle B. changed salons.  It is nice to know that once a month my hair is trimmed without any mistakes.  With the location change, her hours changed as well, which conflicted with my work schedule.  Shelly was very kind and accommodating, adjusting her schedule to make sure I have a nice look.  If you are a guy looking for a good haircut, make an appointment with her.

Tangles is my LA hair salon and I won't go anywhere else.  Tonya takes great care of my hair and all the girls are friendly as well as hospitable.  The service is well worth the price.  I was taught a woman's hair is her glory..... it truly shows on me.  Thank you Tonya and Tangles crew!!!!  You are truly loved and appreciated!

This place was suggested by my husband's great aunt to try her stylist, Tonya.   I llive near LAX, so it was a real effort to go for a "wash & blow".  WOW!  Im so happy I did.  Tonya is amazing, totally professional and values your hair and your time.  She is truly about hair care.  I love the products she uses, my hair held its curl all day, even today I have bounce I didnt have when going to other stylist.  Im so happy I found her, will be using her for my wedding.  She offered suggestions of styles and they all looked beautiful.  She does mult-cultural hair, which is rare for an african american stylist to do.  Her prices are in line with the market and the parking is easy too.  90 minutes parking lot next to the salon.

I have been going to Tangles for almost 5 years.  In those 5 years I've moved different places and refuse to change salons.  The salon is classy, they are super friendly, accommodating and I love it!  Isabel does my hair...she's amazing!  The first time I went in my hair was damaged, short and gross.  It is now healthy and pretty for the first time in my life!  She takes pride in her work and makes sure I am happy.  I have never been disappointed!  First class salon on every level!!!! =) More...

Just a quick update- because I believe good service should be rewarded.  I have been a loyal customer at Tangles (and now my husband is too) for almost 2 years.  I just saw Brianna again last week to go from Med. brown to sunny blonde with highlights.  Again-she did not disappoint.  These are probably the most natural looking highlights I've ever had and I have received so many compliments.  And the prices at Tangles are still great, for an fairly upscale place.  For people that complain about $, I have to wonder what kinds of salons you are going to.  I think you get what you pay for, and I think Tangles is fantastic.  I always park in the ramp and it usually costs $3, so NBD either.

I love this salon. I found this salon while trying to buy Deva products and ended up making an appointment to get my hair cut by Tonya who specializes in the DevaCurl cutting technique. She is so nice and really informative about different curl types and the best way to take care of curly hair. Everyone at the salon is nice, they offer you something to drink, it really is a great experience every time I go. It can be a little pricy depending on whether or not you purchase a product during your visit, but it really is worth it. The best part is that I can go 2-3 months without needing to go back so I'm not spending a bunch of money all of the time. Tonya's services are definitely worth the money. If you've never tried Deva Products before- they are amazing and Tonya is the perfect person to help you start using them. I started using the products before I found Tangles, but I have learned how to use them even more efficiently to make my curls more defined and shiny. I LOVE this salon! Thanks Tonya! More...

Finally! Curly hair specialists on the East Side/SGV. These guys do DevaCurl (Devachan style, of the "Curly Girl" handbook) - cutting it dry, then conditioning, then "plopping" it before air drying. I had had some dry cuts before but never done the full deal, and I was pretty sure that was what I needed for my mixed hair (type 3a curls).Tonya was terrific - warm yet professional, checking in about my usual hair care routine while giving me tips. I'm changing jobs so told her I wanted a look that was super-professional without straightening or having to put it up. (My pet peeve: The style gurus that straighten everyone's hair as an essential first step to looking professional and polished. Well intentioned for fashion perhaps, but ultimately kinda racist, no?)And then she rocked it! Afterward I went to see a friend who's a blurter. She said, "OMG, you look fantastic - like you just stepped off the corporate jet!" Yay Tonya.Details: Everyone was very nice - no waiting, felt pampered, handed from person to person like clockwork. Plenty of mags & people looking after me. Two hours exactly, arrival to departure. Parking sucks, but that's Old Town.A note on the Deva products: When Tonya finished with me, my hair was still kind of crunchy and wet looking. Oh no, it's like a Jheri curl! Tonya assured me that it would soften up in a little while. She was right! A half hour later I couldn't believe how shiny and soft and frizz-free it was, bouncy curls all over - the texture I was used to, but better! I'll probably go back and nab some product after all.

I'm so impressed. Needed a new stylist after moving and tried this place after 6 months of not cutting my hair for fear of a bad cut. Fear not! This place is awesome and reasonably priced. I was warmly greeted and given my beverage of choice (tea, coffee, soda) and then I got a great shampoo followed by a great cut and dry. The stylist did exactly what I asked (rare, isn't it?) and was fun to talk to. Parking isn't a disaster- meters just across the street- and they even stayed a little past business hours for me. Love, love, love! Will definitely be back. More...

I've been going to this salon for about a year now and have been very happy so far!  The receptionist is very sweet and always greets me by name :)  Sabina is my stylist and I really appreciate how thorough she is.  I feel like she's really attentive to my preferences but will also let me know if something won't work for me because of my hair type.  Sabina also did my updo for my wedding which was absolutely gorgeous!  We did a trial the week before (which I highly recommend) and pieces started falling out about midway through the day, but I just let her know where the problems were and on the big day, it was absolutely perfect...no loose pieces at all!   I got so many compliments on it!The salon can be pricey but it's worth it in my opinion.

"It is a new year and new me", I told myself, as I was deciding to go for a different look this year. A friend of my recommended a stylist by the name of Sabina, not Sabrina, but Sabina. The stylist worked at a place called Tangles located in Old Town Pasadena. The location was enough to get me in the mood and it only got better when I saw that Sabina was a little gal that had the most colorful and beautiful arm tats. Anyway, she gave me a list of options and made sure that I was comfortable. She gave me a look that is fitting for the new year and I will be back again. Also, this is great place where you get your hair cut and then go eat at one of the many restaurants near by. More...

I found Tonya through a Groupon for a Brazilian Blowout and love her! After a perfect Blowout I've also had two haircuts and she's even done extensive color correction for me. I dyed my hair black for years and Tonya helped me get to a warm brown with subtle highlights that I absolutely LOVE!  The salon is adorable, located in the beautiful Old Town area of Pasadena. I've been trying to find a stylist in LA for 4 years and I've finally found her! More...

I just came back from my first appointment with Tonya at Tangles. It was a fantastic experience and I love my hair. I was hesistant at first since I have curly African-American hair and I'm never sure whether a multi-ethnic salon will have some who can handle it. But Tonya was a pro. She got my hair straight but still left some bounce in it!I was offered a beverage upon entering and instructed where to change into a smock. The whole experience was delightful and only took a hour!! This was my first "lunch-time" hair dressing experience and I'm hooked! The price was excellent too! No secret charges for "ethnic" hair. Looking forward to making my next appointment and have Tonya solve all of my hair-woes :)Make sure you park in the De Lacey Street lot for free hour and half parking. More...

Let me put it this way: I live in New York City, and my hair salon is Tangles in Pasadena.  I have been going to Kathy since 2008.  I have dark blond hair and do highlights.  She is the best colorist I have seen - when I get my hair colored by Kathy, you can't tell the "line" where the last color job was done.  She's able to do any style or color, which is great.  She understands my kind of hair (fine and brittle) and makes it look great.  I pay less than half what I would in New York for a similar quality haircut/color.  Tangles is an amazing place.  My mom and sister also are regulars there, and we all have different types of hair.  I hear that the other stylists there are great too.  Hooray for Tangles!

So I went to get my highlights with Isabel, she told me about this french technique called Balayage supposed to be less drastic on your hair. So I agreed to do it, very glad I did. I love my hair!!! My hair not only looks good but healthy too. I keep getting compliments which I love. I have to say again that I love the fact that I can trust Isabel with her work. Goin back in 8 wks hair cut and touch up. More...

I have been getting my hair cut by Sana Lim for over 12 years.  I can honestly say that I have never once been disappointed with his work!  He is a skilled stylist and I would never consider going to anyone else.  Besides his expertise, he always tries to accomodate my schedule -- my work hours fluctuate and Sana is flexible when the timing doesn't work out as planned.  Everyone in the salon is very pleasant and after a long day it's a great place to relax.  I highly recommend Sana -- he is available to all clients on his private line: 626-356-0333.

Isabel has been my stylist for a couple of years now, and she is fantastic.  I can only speak about Isabel and not about the other stylists, but when I come in, she sits me down to talk about my hair and what I liked about it from last haircut, what I didn't like about it, and about styling for my new haircut.  This "conference" is conducted away from her station, in a separate area near the shampoo stations.  My haircut always comes out nice with her.  I've gotten a lot of compliments about the styles I've chosen over the years.  Isabel always helps me pick out products that she thinks would work well with my hair. Something else to mention is that I really appreciate is the opportunity to come in for short "tune up" appointments in between haircuts.  These short appointments make sure that my hair continues to look fresh and well maintained.  These are complimentary. About the salon itself - This is not a trendy salon or even one that tries to be trendy, which is one of the reasons why I like it.  Getting a haircut here is a fun experience (who would have thought that would come from a guy?) Everyone at this salon is extremely friendly, and always smiles with a hello.  They make you feel welcome as if you were in someone's private home.  The receptionist always greets you in a friendly way when you walk in the door and offers you something to drink.  Everyone here is very professional and has a great positive, laid back attitude, and again, not trendy or snobby at all.  Parking is mostly on the street in front of the salon since it's Old Town (or in a parking structure).  The receptionist is always ready to give you some change to put in the meter, and if are in being worked on and realize you didn't put enough change in the meter, they are more than happy to put change in it for you.  Very highly recommended!

I went to see Danielle a couple of months ago to get highlights and a haircut. She was nice, the salon was great, and my hair color looked amazing--so amazing I didn't have to go back as quickly to get them done. She took a lot of time to figure out exactly what I wanted and she even offers free bang trims, which is good, because highlights aren't cheap. I'm a satisfied customer. More...

I love this salon! I highly recommend going to Carrie. I have very long, thick hair and she knew just how to work with it. I loved the haircut, and she styled it using just a round brush and a blow dryer and it looked great. I've got a couple of my friends and roommate going to her now. More...



12 June 2008

Kathy is awesome. My highlights look great- she is really a pro. Everyone who works there is sweet and helpful. Atmosphere is relaxed and cool, unlike some salons. Kind of expensive, but not overboard- comparable with what high quality salons charge. You want to see expensive? Try the Westside for a cut and color! I go home happy with great looking hair. Kathy really listens to me and gives great advise on how to use my various products.It's all good! More...

I had a haircut from Chris at Tangles back in August 2004. It has been almost 8 months, my hair still looks great. That's when I know I have a good haircut -- when your cut lasts for a long time. Price is reasonable as well. I have been searching for a hairstylist for a long time and I think I just found a keeper!PROS: Reasonable price, great cut

After deciding to take the leap and switch to a salon closer to where I live, I was not disappointed. I decided to go with Ruth and she did a great job on my highlights. I only fully realized how much I liked it the next day when I was able to see it in good light (when I came out, it was dark). It took a while, but I appreciated the fact that she stayed late to accomodate me. She also included a complimentary deep condition which is always good after color. All in all, typical price for Los Angeles/ Pasadena, but she did a great job. I haven't had a cut there yet, but I'll definitely go back and try it out. More...

A lot of my girlfriends raved about this place so much, that I had to go see what all the fuss was about. And it's true, Tangles is a great salon. They have a great staff that really knows their stuff. They take the time to make sure you get exactly the result you're looking for. They can run a bit pricey, but if you need a good solid haircut to get you back into fashion, check this place out. Parking can be a pain, but nothing a few quarters won't fix. More...

Excellent salon - Lyn Nakamura is my personal favorite. Very relaxing, professional atmosphere. Lyn is very methodical / a perfectionist, so if you're in a hurry - you need to tell her in advance - otherwise, sit back and prepare to be pampered!

I went here twice to get highlights done and I was very happy with them. The place has a fun atmosphere and lots of stylists. I had Laura M. do my highlights both times I was there and they looked REALLY good! They tend to be on the pricey side and you have to pay for parking but it's right in Old Town so you can do shopping or have dinner while you are there too. The money is worth it though to know that they are doing a good job. More...
