Ecco was recommended by a friend, and I have enjoyed every trip here. I went to Karina for foil highlights and a cut on more than one occasion. She is Vidal Sassoon trained, but charges less than others with similar training as she's still building her business. Of course it's still not cheap: about $150, but she does do a good job and does what I ask! Not many stylists listen as well! The salon experience is great: it's bustling and friendly, not stuck up at all. I have moved and the salon is too out of my way now, but I would recommend it to anyone in the Pasadena area for a quality job and a great experience.
Pros: Free parking lot next door, great quality, enjoyable experience
Cons: Not a great value, they only do hair so you can't get your nails done in the same visit
