Although it has been a staple in the heart of old-town Pasadena for 14 years, Tangles Salon doesn't rest on its laurels. Its team is committed to continual education and beautifies clients with the latest products and techniques. Owner Cathy Sripramong was a L'Oréal Professionnel educator for 7 years, most of the stylists have been designing hair for more than 20 years, and the salon was recently one of a select few to undergo training with Andrew Bartfield—color master and former head of education for L'Oréal Professionnel. This thirst for knowledge and extensive experience earned them Pasadena Weekly Reader Recommended awards in 2010 and 2012 and an appearance on a 2008 episode of TLC's Real Simple. Real Life.
One of the salon's signature services is the DevaCurl Curly Girl dry haircut—a process that, like carving your name on the seat of a Tilt-A-Whirl, takes about 90 minutes and produces distinctive curls. The hair tamers also specialize in balayage and ombre highlights, straightening treatments, and extensions, and are certified in nonsurgical hair replacement.
