Hoss Z-- Great, detailed haircuts. I'm hooked! 1/11/2015

Because she has given my difficult hair the best haircuts of my life, I have been a loyal follower of Marina since she had the salon at the Pasadena Hilton. I would call her "Ms. Precision," since her attention to details and understanding the particular haircut that fits the shape of one's head is impeccable. She spends a lot of time perfecting the outcome, yet her prices are reasonable. Her salon is tastefully laid out with a serene ambiance that smells great too. I am hooked and going nowhere else but to her. --Hoss more

Excellent haircut, sensitive professional service, low prices: 1/11/2015

I feel so lucky to have found a hairstylist as caring, thorough and professional as Marina. She has kept my hair up-to-date and looking its best for over 10 years. I am a perfectionist, and while some other professional services in my life have disappointed me (doctors, lawyers, manicurists, printers, etc.), I know I can always count on the consistently excellent work of my hairstylist! Whether coloring, or highlighting, or shaping a new haircut to fit me perfectly, Marina is my best professional resource. A real treasure! more

FinestHair Experts 6/13/2013

I tend not to feel like visiting hair salons where you have a ton of individuals yaking away and your experts talk a lot to one another while performing their task. Good thing I learned about Upstairs beauty salon. It's by scheduled visit solely policy is precisely what I prefer in beauty salon. I don't see a load of people crowding the venue when I get there because Marina makes it a point not to have someone awaiting their time getting entertained. A major perk you can receive from Marina is her enthusiasm with her job. She does not think about earning the cash but she actually thinks about every single hairstyle she snips and every single customer she meets. Not surprising that folks always have good words for Marina. She's understanding and puts in the time to get to know what you desire. And if you have no concept whatsoever about hairstyles, she gives a lot of outstanding pointers. She's the most experienced hair consultant I've ever known. Marina and her workers definitely think about you. They will please you with their expertise on hair shade and fashion. A disadvantage however is I can't have my hair done on a Monday when I extremely need to have one since it's only available on Tuesdays to Saturdays. But I can nonetheless say that Upstairs Salon is truly the best hair salon in Pasadena. more

Problem Solved, Thanks Upstairs 6/10/2013

My seasoned hairdresser had vacated the town and I haven't really chosen somebody yet to replace her, well up until a short time ago. I've scouted for some hair studio in Pasadena and came across Upstairs Salon. Unfortunately, I didn't have my hair done that time on the grounds that the beauty parlor only entertained people by scheduled visit. I called up the parlor to set a meeting and managed to schedule one previous week or so. I didn't set any expectation as I didn't wish to get disappointed. But had I set an expectation, the service I've gotten from Marina would have topped what I've determined. Marina is much more than a professional when it pertains to working with hair, I can easily say that she's really an artist. She cuts and designs hair effortlessly and her hands were light when they touched my tresses. The many other hair stylists I've been to before I've asked for service from the last one I had, had often fussed that they had trouble cutting my hair. My hair's actually extremely thick and the cuts are oftentimes offseted once the beauticians' are done cutting it. But Marina never said a thing about my hair, except for some wonderful advices of course. Now I look really GOOD, my hubby notices me day in and day out pointing out that the cut made me look younger. Regrettable the parlor's not accessible to the disabled as it lies the second floor and there's no elevator for going up and down. I have some handicapped colleagues whom I know would certainly like getting their hairstyles done by Marina too. more

Great Job Upstarirs Salon 6/9/2013

I'm known for being an oldie when it comes to hairstyles and I've never planned to change the way I appear since I didn't known that I can have terrific hair like others can. Moreover, my mother had brought in me to various beauty parlor when I was a child but things never really prospered for my wild curls. Since it was the same story over and over again, I made a decision to just let my hair go long without performing anything to it at all, unless cutting. Nevertheless when I began working, I should fit the looks of a creative director. That's when I read about Upstairs Salon from the newspapers as the best hair salon in Pasadena. I considered it and made up my mind to risk my hair with this salon. Which - was the most effective decision I've ever made. Even though I needed to call several days ahead to get an appointment and it required me some time to find its area, it was certainly worth the visit to the salon. Marina Bluvand had professionally taken cared of me. I didn't expect it because I was after all a non-celebrity customer. She not only gave me a hairstyle that fit my facial shapes and answered my longtime bad hair day problems but she listened to my horror hair stories while growing up. It was truly a remarkable experience, I've never seemed like a superstar in my whole life the way I've experienced when I was there. If I can have my way, I'll pay a visit to Upstairs Salon everyday of my life, even just to obtain that motivating VIP treatment the beauty salon provides its clienteles. more

Grade A+ for Upstairs Salon 6/8/2013

It's tough to choose a beauty salon where I and also my children can get the similar approach from the hair stylists. A pal had the same concern before but had talked about that she found a great handling from Marina Bluvband in Pasadena. Even though Pasadena's a far away from San Marino, where we stay, we decided to try going to Marina since my colleague had mentioned that her hair salon offers the best haircut in Pasadena. Going to Pasadena Playhouse District wasn't a concern but getting to Upstairs Salon proved to be a wee challenging since one of my daughters has a limp and the building where the beauty salon's situated only has stairways for access. However, that setback was modest compared to the treatment we obtained from the hair pros, specially from Marina. The staff welcomed us warmly and they did render us very special treatment, the same as what my friend had said. The kids liked the salon's restful ambience and bright polished looked, and they enjoyed being treated like celebrities. The hairstyles they provided us always stayed in good shape even after being rumpled when sleeping. The hair salon's service was really great if not excellent. Actually, If I'll give Upstairs a mark, it would have to be an A+. more
