so i live in wash park. i walk my dog around the 'hood every night. when el salon moved into the space formerly occupied by my least favorite salon in town, i was excited! not only did they bring in a more youthful feel, but they made it look BEAUtiful. the landscaping outside is seriously fantastic. anyway, i needed a haircut and couldn't get in with my regular stylist, so i took a chance. i knew none of the stylist's at el salon, so i just took the first opening they had. when i got there, the receptionist was super friendly. when i met my new fave stylilst, jamie, i immediately felt i was in the right place. she looked like how i wanted to look: young and hip. she took the time to listen to what i had to say, gave some suggestions and we were on our way. jamie displayed extreme attention to detail and really made sure i knew what she was doing the whole time. when it was time to style, she gave me tips and made sure i was comfortable with my new, fantastic 'do. i would recommend the salon anyday (even to my worst enemy!). thanks el salon! see you for my next cut.
Pros: great price, convenient location in wash park, friendly staff
Cons: only open late two days a week :(
