    You can find Joanna at her new location, Union Salon South! I've been going to her for years and she's the only one I'll have cut my hair. When I first went to her I felt like all haircuts on my flat straight hair were the same... I was so wrong!  Normally no one will notice when I've cut my hair but she can see how to layer my hair so it frames my face in just the right way and people began to take notice.  I'm pretty particular about my services and Joanna is definitely my go to person for hair and make up. I've referred two of my friends to her and they've also converted. She is also great with make up and hair color! Joanna is a perfectionist and does a great job, she did my make up for a wedding and it looked good even in photos. I usually hate getting up dos because they don't look right on me, Joanna nailed that too! Union Salon South is a 2nd location to the Union Salon in Old Town, the place looks amazing! I recommend Joanna to everyone!

  • Julie S., Los Angeles, CA

    I immediately loved the fact that there is plenty of parking and didn't have to hassle with that. The salon itself is modern, chic and everyone there is friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to book my hair appointment. However, this review is specifically for Naomi, the talented make up artist who does my make up for events. I've had her do my make up on several occasions and have always been absolutely delighted with the results. Naomi is warm and friendly and knows her craft. I feel comfortable, we always chat and she welcomes my input to achieve the look I have in mind for the evening. She asks questions in regard to the outfit, I feel like I am talking to a good friend  I always walk away feeling like a million bucks.  Thank you, Naomi for always making me feel pretty and like a total diva. See you again very soon!

  • Karen E., Pasadena, CA

    My stylist Andrew recently started working here and I was in for a haircut and color on Saturday. Andrew is great and he definitely gets 5 stars. I always love my hair after I see him. But it's not just the my hair I love. Andrew is a great guy. He's friendly and sweet and cares about his clients. I always love talking to him during my appointments.
Moving onto the salon: I have to admit I like it much better than the place where Andrew used to work at. This is a nice salon WITHOUT any of the upscale attitude. I came with my mom a few weeks ago (she also sees Andrew) and both times the staff at Union Salon South has been helpful and friendly.
I would definitely recommend Andrew and his new salon 🙂

  • Karina C., Los Angeles, CA

    My hairstylist is Julianne Favela. I have been seeing for about 2 years now. She is absolutely amazing with color. She's done my ombre hair and now my balayage highlights. Julie is great at listening to what you want. She goes above and beyond to research and make sure she understands what you envisioned. I always leave happy after meeting with Julie. I highly recommend that you meet with her. You will not be disappointed.

  • Genevieve F., Arcadia, CA

    I really can't say enough about JAMIE. For starters, she makes it her mission to make your experience in her chair enjoyable from beginning to end. Not only does she really listen to your vision of what you want but she is honest about what she thinks will truly look the best for your hair type, skin tone, face shape etc. I have gone to her to chop off my long locks to shoulder length, highlight my virgin hair as well as the routine trim and without fail get compliments on my hair every time. Union Salon is an exceptional salon with a casual fun vibe and is so lucky to have someone like her. I have and WILL follow her wherever she chooses to take her talents! She's even managed to win over my somewhat "particular" mother and aunts who have been jumping around the area from salon to salon trying to find their perfect match. I think we ALL found our match!

  • Ana L., Corona Del Mar, CA

    I have been a long time customer of Michael Zaldivar's and was so excited when he opened up the original Union Salon. Now that the South location is open it's even better! The location has easily accessible parking, a very cool warehouse feeling and tons of great lighting and room. Michael has been cutting, coloring and straightening my hair for 15 years! He is simply the best and the staff that he hires are always top notch as well. Union Salon South is awesome! I am so glad he did this expansion.

  • Yvette G., South El Monte, CA

    I have to say that not only is this salon great, but what is even better is that my stylist Vanessa is now working there! Vanessa does AMAZING work and gives you what you want. Vanessa has been my stylist for many years and I follow her to the salon that her talents go to. I HIGHLY recommend Vanessa to anyone that is looking to have great looking hair and color. She is truly a one of a kind stylist who is very talented. Thank you Vanessa for your hard work and making me look great!!!

  • Arlene D., Los Alamitos, CA

    Union salon south is a beautiful, modern, and serene salon! I love going there because I know I'm always going to have an amazing experience. My hairstylist Nadin Injeian is amazing! I don't spend any time prior to my appointment worrying about what I want to do with my hair because I know when I get there she will guide me in the right direction. I always love the cut, color, and styling of my hair! She has taken all of the stress out of getting my hair done. I always get compliments on my cut and color and will always be the first to refer my friends and family to Nadin!

  • Zohra O., Los Angeles, CA

    Union Salon South is situated at a great location (with plenty of parking) and the salon itself is really gorgeous and has a wonderful atmosphere. Their selection of Bumble & Bumble and Oribe products is awesome. The receptionists are really friendly and the attention to detail is great, right down to the refreshments they offer and reading material in the waiting area. I've been back to the salon twice since my first time and whereas I hated getting my hair done before, I really look forward to it now, because it's such a nice experience here.

But the main reason I come to Union Salon South is due to Meli Batimana, who was recommended to me by a friend when I was looking for someone who would be good at cutting shorter hair styles. I have fine, wavy (frizzy) shoulder length hair and Mel saved the day when someone else cut my hair all wrong. Not to mention she inspired me to put down the flat irons and embrace my natural hair texture, which I love now because she showed me how to use the right products. I've been planning on growing my hair out again, but now I'm not so sure, because I love how Mel styles it short for me.
