What up Yelpers!... I'm gonna tell you what--> After 7 long years of going to the same stylist in Mexico, driving every other month to get my hair done, I was open to find someone local yet I was very skeptical about finding anyone good. Wow, was I ever in for a surprise! I found the most hip and local hair joint in town right on Colorado Blvd. I've been going to the Factory for more then 2 years now and I don't think I'll ever switch!!! From the time I walk in the door and change into the smock until the time I walk out the door looking fabulous, I feel like I'm being taken care of and pampered by a complete professional. Elva doesn't need any prompting whatsoever from me to give me exactly what I want in a hairstyle. And it's the whole package: waxing my eyebrows, highlights, the style itself, blow drying and even a scalp massage while I get my hair washed. I am positive that this is the best money I have ever spent at a salon in my life. I will be going here for many years to come!

Pros: Best Hairstylist in town= ELVA!

This is the BEST! Perfect cut after cut. One of my dearest friends introduced me to The Factory. I was not sure what to expect, yet I knew that I wanted a great style that would be easy for me to keep, since I have curly hair and try to style it straight. I made an appointment with Wayne Honda and he creates a master piece. I have never been so happy with the outcome. New style and most important a new me! Thank you to the Factory Staff and owner Nina, for a great experience. Please look out for the live art shows and DJs spinning.

Leslie at the Factory Salon is absolutely wonderful! She really listens to what you want and follows through to give you the cut and color you want! I will never let another stylist touch my HAIR! If you're looking for a fabulous stylist then give her a try! She may even give you a 20% first time discount!!!

I am happy to finally find a hair salon that does it all! Literally! A place for amazing cuts, color, and makeup. I have been a customer for almost 2 years now and the experience has always been good one. A very friendly staff catering to all ages. The salon has a true artist feel when you walk in as you enjoy the colorful pieces on the walls. Never intimidating and always there to make you feel at home. Sip on a beverage while you enjoy the sounds from rotating D.J's on the second floor. My recent visit last month was different as they just introduced a new service. Eyelash extensions! Nothing short of amazing. I was fearful of them being uncomfortable like false eyelashes can sometimes be but on the contrary they are not only painless but light weight and natural looking PLUS you cannot beat the price! If you want an all around eye transformation then top it off with a great eyebrow wax and your a new person! Celena is the best in wax and extensions by the way...she is the owner:) Appointments are easy to make and they always work with your schedule so needless to say they will remain a 5 star on my list for a very long time:)

I began wearing my hair curly after my second pregnancy - no time to straighten it out. Also, I don't have the time to drive to the westside for a cut. A friend recommended this salon. When I called I asked for an appointment with a stylist who could cut curly hair - that is Jenna.
I was very nervous to change stylists. However, Jenna was very sweet and knew exactly what to do with curly hair.

Thank you!
oh, I got a great brow wax too.

I was referred to The Factory by a friend (who also wrote a Citysearch review), and have the same rave reviews about Elva, a hair stylist (she also does massages, makeup, and waxing). I asked her to do with my hair whatever she thought "would look best - with the criteria of being easy-to-take-care-of." I walked away with cool layers, eye-sweeping bangs, and a haircut that takes me just a few minutes to style. Elva listened to my needs and gave me the cut I wanted (without my even telling her exactly what I wanted). Thanks for being awesome, experienced, and sweet, Elva! :)

I recently went a spa in the Pasadena area for a facial, and I loved the receptionist?s hair. She referred me to Elva. She had nothing but good things to say about her so I called to make my appointment. When I went in for my appointment everything turned out great. There was some one ready to help me as soon as I walked in and everyone was very friendly. I got highlights, a hair cut and my eye brows waxed with Elva. I am completely satisfied. Everyone at work loves my new look. After my appointment I received a thank you card from her in the mail with her card just incase I had any questions for her. I highly recommend The factory.

I recently moved to Pasadena, and I was looking for a modern hair salon that offered greatly experienced hair stylists, along with great customer service.
As soon as I walked in, someone was quick to assist me. I was then introduced to one of the hair stylist, Elsa, and she answered all my questions; I then setup an appointment with her.
When I went in for my appointment everything was great, she is the sweetest hair stylist, and she not only listened to what type of cut I wanted, but more importantly, she cut it the way I wanted it.
My hair cut turned out great!
After my appointment, I received a Christmas card from her in the mail!!!
I give Elsa and The Factory Hair & Make Up a perfect 10!

I went to Elva for hair stlying. She has no sense of parting your hair to go with your face. she also kept hurting my head. At the end of the ordeal the hair stlye was a disaster. I have not had any other services like hair cut at this salon but their stlying sucks.

This is was my first time when I am completely satisfied with my haircut in new plase.
I found this plase right before moving out to Chicago :-(
The girl who did my haircut (her name was Katie) she is perfect.

Not your grandma's salon. I went to get done up for a big event I was attending in Pasadena. This Hair & Makeup Studio is the coolest place I've ever been to for my hair & makeup. Therey have a very friendly staff, and it's definitely an artist's salon. I LOVED my hair and the airbrush makeup was flawless!!

PROS: very unique, cutting edge, great prices, friendly staff,
CONS: parking

This salon is conveniently located-- right downtown-- but that means parking is a pain and if you haircut drags on forever, as mine did, you'll have to run around and keep feeding the meter.

Here is my problem with this salon. The attitude from the get-go was very, "Oh, we're so chi-chi/we're so groovy." Then, the stylist who was to do my hair left me in the sink, leaning back with that stupid sink edge poking me in my craned neck, wet and dripping with the a/c on full blast, naked beneath that stupid smock thing and WENT TO GET A STARBUCKS, even tho, of course as a wannbe chi-chi salon, they had capuccinos right there, leaving me wet and freezing and flopped over the sink for-- I kid you not-- 45 minutes. Why did it take so long? 'Coz there was "a LINE".

Why does this salon get 3 stars after such outrageous treatment instead of 1? My haircut was really good. So, you decide.
