"TANYA RAMIREZ is the person for hair color.
I am Asian with black hair.  She has made me a believable-looking
blonde.  She started at a salon in Santa Monica (where I live) and
kept moving farther east. I have followed her everywhere because
she is the best.  I have tried numerous other high-end salons/colorists,
but no one could get the color right. It was either too brassy/red
or the opposite dark and ashy.  From time to time I have gone to
other sylists (because I didn't have the time to make the long drive)
only to come back to Tanya for a color correction.  She not only
has the technical skills and experience, but takes the time to
listen to what you want."

- Sue J.

"Totally awesome salon. Tanya is wonderful -- she spends a
much time as your hair demands and is just plain cool to chat with.
I go here monthly despite living on the Westside."
- Jack C.

"Having just moved to Los Angeles I was in need of a new
hair stylist. I have been consistently pleased with my cuts from
Tanya and have not gone anywhere else since my arrival
in the City of Angels. Oh, and thanks Tanya for putting
up with my odd schedule. :0)"

- Robert C.

"Tanya is super talented!! Ever sat in a chair asking for
advice on your hair and felt confident with the direction of
the Artist? After all, what we see in the mirror, and what
another sees of ourselves are usually different things.  
Like a few others on here, I've been looking for someone I
can trust with my very thick wavy hair that is not easy to
cut or colour.  After some experiences, I would wait long
intervals between cuts until I had a trip up to Toronto.
Now I don't have to wait so long...thank you.
Tanya is that Artist you can trust for both cut and colour.
She enjoys what she's doing, so immediately that makes a
difference and she is one of the best at doing it!"

- Donna M.

"Tanya is the best! I have followed her because she is the only
one that knows how to make me happy and make my hair look
great! She is the BEST at color, I always get compliments.

- Logan H.

"Tanya is the only person I trust with my hair - she's amazing,
sweet, and very talented...I've been going to her for several
years now and will follow her wherever she goes!"

- Justin L.

"Tanya is the best!!! I moved to LA over two years ago and went
to Tanya on a referral from a friend back when she still worked
at a salon in Santa Monica. Even after I eventually settled in
Silverlake, I STILL made the drive to see her. Imagine how happy
I was when she moved to a an Eastside salon.
Tanya has a great eye, and always takes the time to listen
carefully and consult with you on the best cut and color. I've
gotten tons of compliments and I've referred several people to
her since then and everyone has been very pleased.
Go see her, you'll be glad you did."

- Irene B.

"Best. Stylist. Ever. When I first moved to LA, I was faced
with bitter, subpar Hollywood stylists who didn't care what I
said or what I wanted. My once beautiful mame turned into a
wreck...until the hair angels led me to Tanya.
I've been going to Tanya for the last three years and have
referred all my friends to her. She takes the time to listen and
consult because she wants YOU to be happy with your hair.
Imagine that? Client satisfation is her top priority and color
is her special talent. In fact, she took me from a platinum
blonde to a rich red-head, which is no easy task.  And when I
say, 'Just a trim, please', that's exactly what I get. Tanya has
real talent and her friendly, patient attitude makes a visit
to her a real treat."

Fibonacci Inspiration

My latest creative hair colouring design is
inspired by Sacred Geometry. Most notably, the
Golden Ratio aka Fibonacci Spiral.

Sacred Geometry is the blueprint of Creation and the
genesis of all form. It is an ancient science that explores
and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all
things and reveals the precise way that the energy of
Creation organizes itself. On every scale, every natural
pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one
or more geometric shapes.

YOU are the unexpected magical element – the creative
alchemist, mixing geometries, palettes and sound with
the surprising and ever revealing artistry of your own
consciousness. By trusting the “hidden reserves” of
your own mind, emotions and soul to creatively guide
your experience here, you will receive that which is
uniquely appropriate for you at any given time.

Video coming soon!
