Never have I just on a whim walked into a hair salon and fallen in love with it. Ellouise is a beauty, from the art on the walls to the cute jewelry set ups and hair pieces. I made an appt to see Stacey for my color touch up and a haircut.

SO glad a friend referred me here! Was looking for a new stylist since I'm new to the area, Stacee did an amazing job on my cut. She gave me long layers and took my suggestions of what I had in mind and gave me something FABULOUS! I will

I was a little nervous when I made an appointment with a stylist I've never been to but JAMIE was the BEST!!! My cut and color was perfect! I'm definitely going back. The salon is artsy and cozy. Everyone was real friendly! \r

Sometimes you just need a good hair cut and color. My roots were grown out, I had split ends and I was feeling pretty, well depressed. I went to Sandi, she is also the owner and left feeling invigorated and my hair had natural highlights put in and the cut made me feel younger and like a new gal. The space is just gorgeous. I recommend it not just for hair but for the complete experience

I was referred by a friend to go see Stacee at Ellouise. My usual stylist lives to far and I cant make that commute every time. So I made an appointment for color and cut with Stacee for a few days later. I walked in with roots and split ends (don't we all when we are going to get a fresh up haha)

She was very welcoming. Talked to me about what I wanted, played around with my hair and told me her thoughts. I told her I usually get a partial weave and a layered cut, she matched my color, gave me pretty golden blonde highlights with a nice base color. I couldn't of been happier. The cut was just as good, she was easy to talk to and I felt very comfortable in the space. The art was very fun the staff was nice, just an overall good experience. I HIGHLY recommend Stacee!!!!!!!

obviously you are reading this review as you are in serach of that perfect salon, intimate, with a sense of self, but with a sense of warmth, and an understanding of the needs of the client. then look no further you are there, so pick up the phone and make that appointment.

whether you are looking for that latest cut or style, prefer to hand yourself over to a hair stylest who will create that one look that is you, or want someone to always create that favorite cut that is you, all is here. a staff of skilled stylists, posssesing a full range of abilities with which to create that look that will fill you with self-assurance and knowledge that you are looking your best.

you will find yourself in a beautiful, warm, brickwalled, high-ceilinged salon, situated south of old pasadena, in an up and coming area of renovated structures from the turn of the century (that is 19th into the 20th centuries). the ambiance is eclectic reflecting the spirit of the owner's own distinct sense of style; beautiful, large floor-to-ceiling typr of mirrors rest on artist's easel stands, all in order to see the stylist perform their skilled abilities; walls are filled with an everchanging series of artwork by cuting-edge artists, plants play off the ambient furnishings, and in front a huge wall will open to the small front garden and fresh air.

both women and men can look forward to a salon, and in the care of an owner and staff hair stylists, of surperior artistry, bar none!

and on a personal note, my hair stylist Rayschell, i have followed her through three hair salons, and this is finally home; put yourself in the hands of a skilled stylist, and industry expert. not only is her background in hair styling profound, but as a film industry stylist she is in touch with the latest hair fashions and techniques as well. you can put yourself in her hands, and come away with the knowledge that you are looking your best, walking with that sense of self that the perfect cut will provide.

so move it! pick up the phone, ask for Rayschell or if not available, one the other beautiful women will be able to create that look for you!

I found Ellouise on city search a few years back when I moved from the Westside to the Pasadena area. I called to make a last minute appt. and they put me on Sandi's list. Sandi s the owner and stylist diva of Ellouise! I loooooved her from the beginning and have been getting my cut, color and highlights from here for 5 years. Not only do I consider her my stylist, but a friend as well, always there to listen to my crazy stories and give me some good life advice......Sandi's the best! Good Karma!!!!

To begin with, Ellouise Hair Salon has beautiful artwork blooming from head to toe. Everyone within the salon is extremely nice and you feel really welcomed.

Rachelle has been my hairstylist for about three years now. She does incredible work!! I just recently got my hair dyed pink, and she took the time and patience to make sure it came out perfect. The bleach didn't even burn my eyes which is a really good thing. The best part of all she's really sweet, really kind, and the conversation just flows naturally. When she rinsed out my hair she gave me a nice massage to relax my head. :) She left my my hair shiny, silky, beautiful, and smelling great for about a week. She does cuts, dyes, make-up, and wax's eyebrows. Plus she works great with your buget, especially if your a student. I highly recommend to be her client if you want someone to make your hair looking like a million dollars.

I have followed Rachelle from salon to salon for a couple of years -- she's amazing and I'd get my hair done by her even if she set up her chair under the bridge -- and now she's at Ellouise and I'm in heaven whenever I go there!

There is something magical about the place... You enter through a barn door and suddenly you are in this comfy, relaxing place, where everyone likes each other -- no salon bitchiness here -- and treats you like an individual, not a deep pocket. They respect your wishes and quirks, don't push anything on you and don't try to exploit your insecurities. I got a couple of the Ellouise products (conditioner and shine/anti-frizz goo thing) they are good and simple with subtle smell and nice packaging -- I love the hare drawing on them.

Now about Rachelle: she's got mad skills, both in cutting and coloring, but she doesn't use your head for self-expression -- she'll listen to what you want and work with you until you're happy. I've seen her dye a girl's hair fusia, but in my case what I want is subtle -- I want my hair to look healthy and well-maintained but not "done" -- and that's exactly what she gives me. At a moment's notice for a very reasonable price.

R can also tint your eyebrows and lashes -- a real art -- do your makeup, and give you very wise love/work advice. But only if you ask; if you want to space out or flip through magazines, that's cool too.

Elizabeth's magic fingers have been working on my head (such a yummy head massage she gives as your hair is being shampooed and conditioned) for 5 years now. As a yoga teacher and fitness freak, I am very active and like my hair to move. I can take her styles straight from the swimming pool (with finger styling and creating waves) to the theatre. Her cutting expertise also provide me with sleek sophistication when I want to revert back to my NYC former ways. I have recommended Elizabeth to several students and clients and have seen the transformations!!! DO TRY HER OUT - you will be ticked pink...and your hair will feel healthy and luxurious!

O.K. so I attempted to be thrifty and went to one of those cheep salons for my color, What a mess! I was just trying to tighten up the purse strings because of the economy...... I was desperate to return to my beautiful shinny blonde highlights, that used to look natural! A friend slipped me Elizabeth's card, and said,"she is worth it, you will be very pleased, she has been coloring my hair for years." I had no idah, my friends hair looks like mine used to , beautiful and real, not fake! What did I have to loose? What a great experence, Elizabeth took her time, and colored and cut my hair with precise care. She is an experenced stylist,has taken class's from some of the best stylist all over the world. She is confident in her ability to make your hair beautiful too.

I love Sandi, and so does my hair :), she has excellent style and so wonderful to be around as well. In addition to excellent service, her salon also has a special product line that keeps my hair top notch. She has been my stylist since I moved here 3 years ago, and I will keep coming back again and again.

Ellouise is a charming artsy hair salon. I love the ambiance of the salon, folks are very pleasant and welcoming.
Christy H has been cutting my hair for about 3 years and she is fantastic. I used to fly to my original hometown just to get a hair cut until I found Christy. She's a beautiful person, inside and out and is very good at what she does.

christy has chopped me up from classic long to funky short for over three years. she listens and is charmingly honest.
her cuts are precise with a loose style that complements your features. this makes each style unique. any curious changes, she'll make subtle cuts and/or color that help show what the style may look like. and to see if you're ready. curious changes are sassy and fun. do it.
i dig my short hair now and love the way it grows - it's all in the cut.
every visit is good hair and good talks.

A friend of mine had been to Ellouise and was very pleased with her hair. So being new to the area I thought I'd look on Citysearch and see what their reviews were like. I made an appointment with Stacey for color and cut. I wanted blonde highlights and a fresh new cut. Stacey took her time with me, the conversation was good, and I love love loved the end result my hair!! The color was exactly what I wanted and her ideas for the cut were in sync with what I had a vision of. Her prices are very reasonable and the salon is very cute!! Hope this helps anyone looking for a new hair stylist!! Stacey wont let you down :)

Elizabeth is my hair angel! Over a year ago I went to well known west side salon, the stylist did not deliver what he promised, nor what I had asked for. I had spent well over $400.00, and shed a million tears! My virgin carmel colored locks turned the shade of a banana and my once lusious mane felt more like pick up sticks. That's when Elizabeth stepped in to rescue me and my hair. She assured me that, no, I would't have to cut off all of my length and, yes, I could return to a color that didn't resemble a ripe piece of fruit. She has been cutting, coloring and conditioning my hair ever sence, and I absolutly love her work! Her prices are very fair...half of what it costs on the west side, and I don't have to make that drive! If you are looking to switch stylists, I highly recommend her. She is not easy to get an appointment with because she is in demand. She is not only an incredibly talented stylist who is a master of the craft, but also a gorgeous and bright woman who listens and cares for my hair so lovingly.

I was under the impression that to have your hair done right you have to drive to the west side and pay a weeks worth of salary, boy was I wrong. Due to our "economic situation" My husband had me reevaluate my "Splurges" as he called them. But we all know hair is a necessity. I wasn't looking for something new just someone closer and less expensive to keep my grey at bay. Christy was a perfect fit. She matched my color perfectly and had after work hours so I wouldn't have to take a "long lunch". I was so pleased as I bounced out of the salon, I had saved about a hundred bucks so I took myself out to lunch. I only wish I had found her sooner.

Ellouise Thank you!! I went in and got my hair done. Color and cut. My appointment was with Stacee. She is AMAZING with color. My hair was really boring..I havent colored it since 2007. I wanted a fresh new look for the holidays. I have a few Christmas Parties and family get together's and I felt it was time for a "change". She took her time with me, listened to what I wanted, and the end result was great!!! I highly recommend Stacee to anyone looking for a great stylist. The conversation was good and the Salon is fabulous!!! I hope this review helps someone!!

My friend refered me to Stacee at Ellouise after she went in for a haircut. I went in about a week ago and i LOVE my hair. Its always nerve wracking when you go to a new stylist because you dont know if your actually going to get the picture in your head you want to see. haha. BUT I DID! Stacee was amazing. I told her what I wanted..she gave me some ideas and then ran with it and I couldnt be more happy! My cut was good too..just the basic long layered haircut. but i will defintley be going back to see Stacee. Hope this helps someone.. :)

Christy has been my doing my hair for over 8 years now and i could not be happier. She listens to my every detail when i'm picky and gives me the perfect 'do' when i'm feeling spontaneous and say 'do whatever the hell you want, just make me pretty again!' I just adore this woman and look forward to my appointments. My only complaint is people have caught on to my secret and now she's always booked. But she always squeezes me in and makes me feel like i'm the only thing that matters when i'm in her chair. So this is my THANK YOU TO CHRISTY, letting world know how much i love her=)

PEOPLE WITH FINE OR COLORED HAIR GO TO STACIE... I was new in town and had some one burn my hair and scalp so bad my hair was falling out. If you are new in town and are looking for a hair dresser you can trust you must try Stacie at Ellouisa! She saved my hair and is an amazing artist, very very talented. She grew up around hair dressers and has a natural talent and passion for hair. She had all the time in the world for me, I love my hair and I hope this helps someone new in town. Stacie is amazing!

Ive always had long hair. One length, very straight and simple. I wanted to jazz it up a little bit and went in to Ellouise and met with Stacee. I told her not to much off the length and I'd like some long layers. She gave me a phenominal cut. I love it!!! Great conversation and the salons ambience is wonderful!! You wont be dissapointed.

After reading reviews on this site I decided to take a chance and try the salon. I made an appointment with Christy and after having a few minutes to chat she suggested that her colleague Sandie was better with short wavy hair like mine. That's never happened to me ever. Sandie and I talked about what I wanted and her vision for my hair. I felt absolutely comfortable that she knew her stuff. I left feeling that my new coif matched my personality. Sandie cut my hair very short but it's shaped well and I got several compliments on my new 'do at work. She gave me exactly what I was looking for a no mess no fuss hair cut.
liked the spirit and vibe of the shop. I'll be back

I wanted something low maintenace..having kids it isnt that easy getting around to do my hair every morning. She gave me probably one of the best haircuts of my life!! I couldnt of asked for a better stylist..young..great conversation..her whole vibe was excellent. On to the color i had a drab blonde going on..with dark roots. Stacee gave me highlights and it totally gave my hair this sun kissed blonde look..and i love it. Thumbs up for Ellouise and stacee!!! :)

I have tricky hair. It is fine, if you don't know what you're doing, my hair ends up looking like wood chips gone wrong. I went to Sandi at Ellouise , she said she would do the first part of the cut wet, and finish dry. Her exact words were "it's like topiary, I sculpt the cut until it lays perfectly without you having to fight it when you style it." I was a little skeptical ----I shouldn't have been. She's really good and should have as many bragging rights as she wants. The best, is that when I went to style it myself it looked just as good. I am happy and I bet you will be too. Go see Sandi

I moved to the LA area about 6 months ago and I've been trying to find a good stylist. Ive been to a few different salons all around LA..hollywood..santa monica..etc. A friend told me she's been going to Ellouise for a while now and has never had a bad experience...so i thought..okay i'll make an appointment. and im so glad I did!!!! Stacee was wonderful. MY color turned out fabulous and the cut as well!! Considering my last salon experience left me very unsatisied it was refreshing to have a stylist actually listen to what you want and also give advice on what she thinks would be best for you. Also she has a great energy and the conversation was good and her prices are very reasonable!! I'll be seeing her again in the future!!! =)

I have been a customer of Sandi's since 1992 and there's a reason: she's never let me down. She's made me short, long, and everything in between; she's made me a platinum blonde and dark violet. A friend of mine who is also a longtime client of Sandi's, used to model professionally and got her hair cut by big names like Brad Johns, and reported that none of them ever held a candle to Sandi.

I remain loyal to Sandi because she is always sure-- I can walk in with a specific idea and trust that she will know exactly how to execute, but I also know I can arrive totally clueless and she'll listen to me flail around and then come up with something snappy that I love. Such is the nature of our long-standing relationship, but I am sure that she approaches her new clients with the same amount of care and imagination.

Go. There's always great music and cucumber water, and someone who really likes turning out ridiculously amazing pies and cobblers and madeleines drops by on the weekends, so there is free dessert, too!

I was looking for a stylist that I would be comfortable with and who would listen to my needs. I am extremely glad that I found Christine and won?t go to anyone else! She listened to everything I said and made suggestions when appropriate. Her extensive experience with color is apparent when coloring my hair and I am always happy with the results. She has a great understanding of what works well for me and I am happy to hear all of her suggestions. Her pricing is very reasonable and competitive. Thank you for all the wonderful work!

I was looking for a salon with someone i would be comfortable with. Its a great enviornment. The salon is very artsy and has a great feel. Very clean and personable. I went in wanting a "new look". Stacee took care of me. She did exactly what I asked. The color turned out amazing and the cut was great too. I highly recommend her to anyone.

Christie dyed my hair back to natural light brown and it was so perfect I can't tell where her color starts

Her haircuts are so good they last me months and months and months

She is good company and her prices are good

She's on top of the newest hair info

THE WHOLE STORY:

I had hair that was dyed black on the left and platinum on the right and I had 3 inches of my natural light brown roots. I'd developed a color allergy so no more funny colors for me. I went to Christie and she got the black out enough and filled the platinum enough that after she put the color on I COULDN'T TELL WHERE HER COLOR BEGAN. I thought after 6 weeks of washes I'd need to go back to get a touch up but I never did! NO TOUCH UP! All this while being super careful not to get it on my skin because of the allergy. I never had to color my hair again.

The shape of her haircuts last me soooo long. I love her company, she's a fun person to spend a few hours with, she's young and hip and her prices are totally fair (reasonable). I can't recommend her highly enough. The salon is nice too.

I've had several hair cuts and color/highlights with Elizabeth at Ellouise during the past two years and have been thrilled with the results each time! Elizabeth has years of experience as a stylist, a great eye for art and design, and a remarkable understanding of what truly "works" for me. I went to her with a botched head of hair following a color/cut disaster and she has wonderfully restored my hair back to both health and style. She makes fabulous hair styling look easy and has been the answer to my make-me-look-incredible prayers! I highly recommend both Elizabeth and Ellouise salon!

I have been to Ellouise several times and have always had a great experience. They are definitely equipped for whatever you need...they have a very qualified group of stylists. I tried Ellouise for the usual hair cut and blowdry and have been very happy with the results. Eventually, I tried the Japanese hair treatment for my curly hair...Ofelia is the stylists that has experience in this treatment and I have to say, I was "overjoyed" at the results. I have since had the treatment twice more and I am still as amazed as the first time at how gentle it is on your hair and the results are amazing!!!

i've been to ellouise 3 times now, and every time i get a great cut. i've only seen elizabeth and she's wonderful. she listens to what you want, chats with you (but not too much if you don't feel like talking), and is a very sweet person. the price there in general is a bit on the expensive side so i don't go too often, but when i want a good cut or a drastic change, this is my new favorite spot.

I found Sandi ironically because I loved the name of her salon... it is the same as my cat's with a different spelling. Silly, I know, but when I came to see Sandi at Ellouise nearly 5 years ago I realized that I made the perfect (blind at the time) choice. Sandi is a true artist - personally and professionally - and her salon reflects her beautiful and diverse style. She has guided me through my butt-length hair to bobs to long again to short again - and I've always loved her results. She is also very creative with color. She is simply the best!!

We recently moved from the bay area, and were so fortunate to have discovered Ellouise Hair Salon. We felt at ease immediately when we entered the salon. Sandi is our stylist and she's excellent! She's also a great listener, and has a knack for knowing exactly what you want in your hairstyle.

Ellouise is definitely a salon to try -- especially if you have hair that is manageable, and easy to care for, and all stylists would likely give you a good cut or color. However, I've had mixed results, and have been to two stylists (i will admit, my hair is very straight and is not the easiest to work with!) The first haircut, with Elizabeth, was definitely one of the best, if not the best, haircut I ever had. However a second and third time were disappointing -- especially since the second time, when I was obviously disappointed, there was resistance to try to make any better. Contrary to people coming to me and saying what a geat cut, people actually said, please get your haircut and don't ever do that "style" again. But, I tried again, and this third time, the cut is OK -- not great, but not bad, going in the right direction, and the stylist was very willing to try to make better - so that is good. I'm giving all another try -- sometime it just takes time to get into the "groove" - but my jury is still out. And, yes, the people, ambiance, are the best -- even the bit of massage you get with the shampoo shows they are going the extra mile to make you feel special and welcome. I'm optimistic and hopeful with another try I'll get a great cut and continue to go.

Cons: Have had mixed results

I have enough hair for three people , and it's long. Stylists usually groan when they see me coming. I had seen this beautiful space and wondered what it was , as it does not look or feel like the normal salon. This is a huge open loft so you don't feel like everything you say is going to be heard by everyone in the shop. I made an appt with Sandi which I later found out was the owner. Not only did she do a beautiful tricolor job on my hair she also cut and flat ironed it. She did all this masterfully and the best was it was done quickly . I didn't feel like I had spent the whole day there. Which by the way wouldn'nt be the worst thing that could happen. Another thing I enjoyed was that the people who worked there seemed to like each other. The whole expierence was pleasant . I will be back.

Yes, I was like you surfing cs to find a stylist. Although I must admit I was afraid to follow through and try someone reccomended with out seeing the work. I sure am glad I did. Elizabeth gave me the blonde hilights I have been wanting for years and never getting. She used 3 bowls of blonde color. The color looks natural blending perfectly. She took her time drying my curly hair streight but full and beautiful. I've gotton a complement on my hair now everyday this week, thats why I am writing a review. Elizabeth is great.

Ofelia Pastor is my beautician. She is warm and friendly, and listens carefully to my requests, following up with excellent results. She offers creative suggestions and is versatile and flexible in her work. Her coloring, haircuts and styling are superior, creative and unique. I have looked for a long time for a beautician such as her who does the above things so well.

Dude's,
Don't think for a minute that this salon only caters to women. There is a stylist named Vanessa that cuts there. But she dosen't just cut! She gave the best shampoo I have ever had. She almost put me to sleep with the scalp massage . I have been to several salons in the past because I really don't have a regular stylist and this one I must say is a keeper, not to mention the non intimidating layed back environment.
Another cool thing is that I was able to buy my wife a nice piece of jewelry on my way out.
If you Dudes want a great cut go see Vanessa!!!
