Can anyone help me? I used to go to the Ravissant in San Marino. Valerie was my stylist. She did a wonderful job and was a very nice person. I moved out of CA, but now I'm living here again. I can't seem to locate her. Does anyone go back far enough to remember Valerie? Is she working at the Pasadena location?

Thanks very much.

I've always had a great experience here. The staff are friendly and professional, always greeting me by name and calling me the day before to confirm my appointment, which is very helpful.

The facilities and clean and the haircuts and styling are top rate. Ravissant is by far the best place I've found in Southern California to get a haircut since I moved here back in the mid-80's.

Both my wife and I go here because they do an excellent job on both men and women's hair.

I've followed Tammy, who has done my hair for years, from two other salons. She has great taste and my hair cut and color receive frequent compliments. I'd be afraid to go anywhere or to anyone else. Tammy rocks!!!!!

Full-service salon in a very centralized location. I went there a couple of months ago for a haircut and color with Arlet. I ended up being pampered for the day with the works at Ravissant. Mavis was able to squeeze me in her busy schedule for a pedicure and eyebrow wax. Mavis has spoiled me...I can't go to anyone else for a pedicure. She is very patient, takes her time, and is quite the comedian. I can't wait for my next eyebrow wax, so she can work her magic.

My cousin referred me to Tammy. I went to Ravissant last week and I had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was great. The receptionist was so friendly. I got there a few minute early to check-in and checked out the hair magazine. Then I was greeted by Tammy's assisstant to change and get ready. Tammy introduced herself after I changed and I told her that I wanted to have my volume like the one in her flyer. Tammy explained that due to my mid-length hair, It wouldn't come out to be exact. she added that she'd give me the volume I wanted. I let tammy did her job. We had such great conversation and I enjoyed talking to Tammy. After she texterized it, the hair came out Great. It was awesome. I loved the wave, the volume and definitely the cut I couldn't stop playing and feeling my hair. It was such a great experience. Thank You Tammy...I will see you next week for my color.
love,
M

So a few things really turned me off about this place, starting with the atmosphere. Yeah, it looks nice, but the vibe is elitist & cold. I wasn't aware that I was talking to the "assistant" stylist until Tammy came out to introduce herself. Tammy didn't seem to care about what I thought or wanted overall. I'm not sure if it's a matter of having such a huge ego that she did the opposite of what I asked, or if it just comes down to not fully understanding English. I say this because I don't know how "I'm growing my hair out long" can be interpreted as cutting 4-5 inches off my hair to where I MAY be able to wear it in a pony tail in about a month. And when she asked me how I wanted my hair styled, and I replied "dry it curly", she blew it out straight! This was shocking as I had just finished telling her that I don't like it straight. Who the hell has balls like that? My guess is that she was covering up a bad cut with the fancy blowdry because I went home immediately and washed my hair to let it dry curly and I was furious at what had occurred. A curly mullet with huge chunks missing on the sides. I am totally disgusted that this stylist didn't "review" my hair prior to cutting, followed by dismissing what I wanted just show she can showoff her straightening skills. That was $100 totally wasted and I'm not even kidding when I say I am wearing headbands & hats to cover this mess up. ***UPDATE*** I went to a new stylist for a trim post-tammy/ravissant-disater, and she struggled how to politely ask who botched up my hair! When another stylist can look at your hair and point out 6 things that are wrong with the cut before I can even say, is a good indication that the prior stylist is a hack. Do yourself a favor, don't buy into the hype, and stay away from Ravissant & more importantly, stay away from Tammy!

What a great find. This salon was found by a friend of mine who is doing some modeling work and has to keep her hair looking great. She called me after her first time there and insisted that I try it out. Honestly, I had given up looking for a great cut at a decent price but was pleasantly surprised by the job my stylist, Keya, did. He has cut may hair ever since and no one has ever done as great a job as he does everytime I am there.

If you want the best mani/pedi in the Los Angeles area, go to Mavis at Ravissant. Her technique is professional and her tools are impeccably clean. She has a huge range of color choices and great taste. Her manicures last forever and my nails have never been in better shape. As a plus she is funny and fun and beautiful.

I just recently went to Ravissant. I just got referred from my colleagues. The receptionist put me with Gilbert. We had good conversations and the result came out fantastic. I love the hair cut and the layers that he gave to my hair.. The other thing that i really enjoyed and impressed was the way that he pampered my hair. It felt so great. Besides that i also like the environment and the salon. It feels so warmth, The staff was amazingly friendly...I highly recommend Ravissant and hope you can enjoy your time and finding your look like i did at Ravissant

I was on vacation last month in Italy where I had my hair done. They used a product I've heard of, but not been able to find! Maybe you can help me. Does your shop carry CHENICE OF BEVERLY HILLS product? or can you direct me to where I can obtain this line of products.

I went to Ravissant more than a year ago and when my stylist was not available at the appt. time (because the previous client was late) I had my hair cut by Tammy. She gave me the haircut SHE thought I should have, in spite of what I asked for. She used the razor when I asked for a clean scissors layered cut and I ended up with a look I hated. On top, Tammy was rude and with an exaggerated perception of her skills. My original stylist ended up fixing my haircut one week later and I will never step inside Ravissant ever again, until Tammy owns it.

When former owner Freddy owned it. And I never had a bad experience with them at all. They were very freindly and courteouse.
I do not know this new Tammy lady But I have lso been to the salon In Pasadena and Erica Arboleda did an Awesome job with my hair..I had not seen her In years...It is very classy and sheek.
But I do agree if you dont like the cut have them fix it right.They always did good job on my dew which I appreciate very much to bad Freddy had to leave he was a very nice and even more a hard worker..Tammy I hope the best for you in your venture. And maybe when I get back out that way can come get my hair done by you....
Anyways Ravissant rocks....Cheap shots dont.

Don't believe the reviews about a rude owner at Ravissant!!! First off, the owner is a woman, not a man...so I suspect that some of these reviews are just either outdated or mistaken. I have been a customer of Tammy's since before she bought the salon, and I tell you, SHE IS TRULY GIFTED. I have worked (and been a patron) at many of the best salons in New York, San Francisco and LA. I've been to some of the swankiest places in SoCal and sat in the very same chairs the celebs frequent, but no other stylist has demonstrated the consistently fabulous make-over ability that Tammy has. Her vision always results in a signature 'do that's complimentary to the customer's personality and aesthetic, and it grows out beautifully - she's an exceptional cutter and knows her color, too. Plus, the staff always treats me very well. The salon is beautiful and modern and simply a joy to visit. Good coffee... or wine...and a great product selection, too.

I lived in Bakersfield. I went shopping in Old Town Pasadena for my new wardrope for job interview. After shopping, i felt like something missing. I was on my way back to the parking area and i passed by Ravissant Salon. I came in and asked the price for the haircut. I was quoted from 55 to 75 for woman hair cut. I told her that my hair was short and would it be still at the same price?. the owner told me yes. She told me that i could get a hair cut anywhere for the lowest price but the techniques, skills, and highly trained were the keys to determine the price at Ravissant. I was hesitated and doubted for couples mins. I turned to the owner and I asked her what was her price. She told me 70. I told her, so you're the senior hairstylist? She said yes. I told her that i wanted her to cut my hair and if i wasn't please with it. I will not pay for the service. She confidently said yes. I went to her station and got ready. After enjoying my chardonay, I got my hair nicely fixed. After seeing myself in the mirror, I was SATISFIED with the hair and happy that i'd make a right choice. I told her, " YOU'RE DESERVED YOUR PRICE." I paid for my service and left. I had more confident after the haircut. The good thing was that my interview went easy and even my boss complemented my hair. So I called and said thank to the Owner Of Ravissant. Once again, Thank you for putting more confident in me and making me look pretty.

I came to Pasadena for the business conference. I needed a haircut badly. I stopped by ravissant salon and asked if i could have an appt. I was greeted and accommaded by the frienly and good-looking receptionist. I waited for 5 mins. The female hair stylist approached me and introduced herself. After greeting, we went to her station and she aske0d, "how would i like to wear my hair?" I told her that i don't have any idea yet but i had a conference comming up and i needed to look good for my presentation. She said "alright". and she started cutting. the next thing i know, she cleaned me up nice with this Amazing haircut. I was pleased with it and paid for the service. The thing that surprised me was that after leaving the salon for 5 mins, There was a couples that approached me and asked where did i get such a Sharp and great hair cut. I showed them the place.. and left. I hope they walked in the salon. After that experience, i had more confident in me and my conference turned out wonderfully. I called and thanked the hairstylist and I'm now one of their regular.

I first discovered Ravissant when I opened my own business in Old Town.
One of the stylists gina, frequented my business and suggested I come to Ravissant and give her a try.
I could tell by her own personal style and appearance that she is very good at what she does.

I was so happy with the results, and I think we all know how hard it is to leave a stylist, its like breaking up with a friend so going to a new stylist was not an easy thing to do. Gina however made the transition so smooth. She really listened to what i wanted, offered her own suggestions without being pushy and the results were beyond my expectations.

I have been going to Gina ever since and not only do I love the restults I get from her, but I love the atmosphere and friendly staff there as well. The new owner is very welcoming and friendly and the skin care specialists are fantastic

I would and do recommend Ravissant to everyone I know!

I'm from out of town. I came to visit my family from San Francisco for the holiday. I was bored and got nothing to do. So I searched online and found Ravissant Salon. I called and made the appt on the same day. I was greatly greeted when I first arrived. I got the female hair stylist. After a short consultation period, She put the color and the next thing I knew, she started to cut my hair. The result came out unbelievable. I LOVED IT. I've never had a short and chic hair do like this before. It made me look dazzling. My mom couldn't even recognize me. She loved my hair. I was-and Am happy with the hair cut as well as the services. I highly recommended this salon for everyone to try out. This salon could bring out the new look on me. It could do the same thing on others. So go for it. Don't delay. I will definitely be back the next time i'm in town. KISSS KISS. Thank You

The owner is VERY rude and some of the stylists aren't even licensed! If you are thinking about getting your hair done at Ravissant, you might want to think again...

Mavis is great for eyebrows and nails - she is meticulous and always does a nice job, but do NOT get your hair done there! After trying a couple of years back and being disappointed with the results, I decided to give it another shot and made an appointment for a blowout with the former owner (Freddie) who I was told had over 10 years of experience. Although I was charged a higher price because I had booked an appointment with an "expert," Freddie only touched my hair for the last 5 minutes to put the "finishing touches" on it. Instead a novice assistant attempted to blow out my hair.. the poor girl tried very hard, but after over a torturous hour my hair looked worse than I could have done myself! About to cry because I had gone specifically for a special occasion, I told the owner how disappointed I was and asked why the person who I had booked my appointment with only gave 5 minutes of his time and was told that he always has an assistant do his appointments unless you specifically say that you want him to do it (even if you make the appt with him??) The owner's response was "that will be $65" and a suggestion to come back and try them again. Needless to say, I was completely appalled. Go to Manuel at Touche on Lake instead.

Mavis is great for eyebrows and nails - she is meticulous and always does a nice job, but do NOT get your hair done there!

*I'm a guy.*

I was recommended this place by a few people, and had high hopes. I explained to the stylist how I liked to have my hair cut, and allowed him some freedom. I wear my hair short and done up, the current fashion (dane-cook-ish).

The guy who cut my hair turned me into an emo. The cut seemed fine, but after he styled it, I was ready for myspace. My hair took two weeks (and it grows FAST) to recover to something not-awful.

If you're a guy, steer clear of this salon. Unless you're really emo, in which case, have fun!

"Heads up" to those who used to go to Ravissant but in the last year noticed a negative turn. The long-time owner & creative genius that started Ravissant sold the place & had a falling out with the new ownership.

I have lived in Pasadena for a very long time and visited Ravissant some time ago, but just recently a friend of mine told me to visit Yvonne who is specialist in color. Yvonne, was not only an excellent colorist and gave me the blond locks of my dreams, but she was also a very personable person who cared about my hair condition! What a concept! She apparently does fashion shows for LA fashion week and different kinds photo shoots. She is a very innovative and creative individual. I will definitely be seeing her again soon!

I'm a business woman. I travel very often therefore I need the style that looks professional and also doesnot take lot of time to style. I went to many salons and I tried some of the well known stylists in town. Unfortunately, I still didnot have the hair style that i desired. My friend comes to Ravissant and she recommended Tammy. I hesitated to come at first. After seeing my friend's last haircut, I decided to go for Tammy. She's very friendly and professionally. After telling her my needs and frustrations, Tammy seemed to understand my situation. Then She smiled and got me ready. I just sat on the chair and let's her do the work. After one hour, She said, " This is THE hair style that i design for your need." I was stunt and "WOW" was the only word that i could start with. I love the style. It was so me. I LOVED my hair. I went out for dinner that night, all I heard were the compliments of how good my hair was and how it fit me well. Then I thought to myself," I've found the hairstylist that i have longed for quite sometimes". I'll definitely be back to have my cut and color done with Tammy from now on becauce she has my TRUST. All I can say now is "Thank You for The hair, Tammy." Therefore I decided to share my experience so that whoever find themselve in my situation don't hesitate to come to Ravissant and find themselve THE stylist that could bring out their needs and desires. I was satisfied not only with cut but with the hosting as well. The receptionists were very warm and friendly. I wasn't ignored or neglected. They offerd beverages as well as magazines. They made me feel at ease. The overall services was excellent. I highly Recommended Ravissant Salon and I hope you do, too.

I went in to redeem a gift certificate and the owner rudely did not want to honor it. After having a very public conversation about it, he stormed off and had one of his stylist work on me. The owner sucks! But the stylist rocks...I also got a message by one of their therapists...kick ass! Lucky for him his stylists keep his business afloat...

PROS: great cuts
CONS: rude owner,

Marlene does excellent eyebrow waxing and skin treatments. I have been going to her for a year and gotten perfect eyebrows every time. She has cleared up and improved my skin via glycolic treatments and instructions on home care and has given me better results than I have ever had with a dermatologist. Mavis does great nails and uses 100% sanitary procedures and new tools. I have gone to Gil for cut and color and am very happy with the results. All three are very nice, considerate, fun, and worth the $$.

i have search for years for the right hair stylist. i'm very picky when it comes to hair.
i used to go to this salon 10 years ago. i messed up my hair. i read on the paper and said they change the owner so i try the place once more time. this time, the stylist blew me off. She did a good job on my hair. she gave great texture and proper care for my hair. Good attitude. I liked the hair and had good compliment about it. They had good service and good environment. The price is average in pasadena. I pay whatever amount just to have the right style for me. i highly recomended this salon.

Well, the haircuts in Ravissant are surely great. However, I presumed the same would be true for their electrolysis services too. I was sooooo wrong. I got an appointment with Pilar - I guess she is the only electrologist there. Well, I kept going to her week after week for zapping a few hair from the sides of my face, but she kept working on the peach fuzz rather than the actual stray hair that I wanted out, that too after explaining that to her several times. So, I have ended up about $800 poorer and with no difference at all in my sideburns and am still having to tweeze them everday! I don't know if she was doing this on purpose so that I would keep going back to her or she just didn't know what she was doing. She kept telling me that I will start noticing a difference after some time. There was no change even after 6 mths!! Can't believe I fell for that. Agghhhh! What a waste...

Besides a great location (near Colorado Blvd), Ravissant does a great job maintaining a stylish salon feel and hip hairstylists that are well trainined an accomodating. I really liked their hair coloring techqniues and have always felt more beautfiul walking out than I did coming in. I have seen several hair stylists, but really liked Katie the most. This is a great salon for both men and women and their prices are pretty reasonable. I definitely recommend.

You'd think a hair cut would be simple, but not in this place. They start out by ignoring you and then proceed to completely muck up your hair without giving any apologies. They annoying chatter constantly going on in this place makes it double the torture.

Ravissant is right in the heart of Old Town Pasadena, next to many excellent eateries. I got my hair styled for the right price ($65), and thought about getting some spa work too!! But, the atmosphere and movement was just right. Not too fast, no too dull. And the place is right next to some wonderful Indian Food. My stylist did the right stuff to my hair, not the same old bargain cut, but a real suave looking cut. He then added some gel to make it shine.

I was taken aback by the prices at first. $65 for a haircut seemed a little high, but when the experience was over, i didn't regret spending one penny. The overall appearance of the salon was beautiful. It was super clean (which is very important) and trendy. Their stylists were young and hip to to conteporary cuts, as well as friendly! I felt very welcomed as soon as I walked through the doors and was greeted with smiles by the people at the front desk. I felt very comfortable with the stylist while he was cutting my hair. He was very helpful "post service", as he gave me tips on how to style my hair and even sent me off with samples of styling products! Now, it may be just me, but when a stylist goes that far, they've done an adequate job and definately earned that $65.

I'm not so sure about the hair stylists at Ravissant, but I do know about Marlene! She does waxing and facials in the upper rooms. I always have PERFECT brows, perfectly arched! She's pricy, but after going to other people who have screwed up my brows completely, I would rather pay to have them done the right way, the first time.
