This was the most amazing experience. Mahnaz completely transformed my eyebrows. She was professional, articulate, and... most importantly, delicate! She whole process went so smoothly. I was afraid of the pain that would come along with microblading, but I was numbed in advance and and it went so smoothly. My eyebrows look absolutely amazing. Highly worth it!read more

We both love the results and definitely recommend!read more

CAROL is an amazing hairstylist. First of all, She seems like she has a lot of experience and knows what she's doing.... I have been going to many salons because I travel but so far she's my favorite. I been doing my hair from her for more than 10years+ and she has always satisfied me. More like she makes me feel like a princess. She always seems to be in a happy mood and enjoying her job. Her coloring, perm, highlight technique is beyond perfect. Even though I dye my hair all the time, it's always in a perfect condition. I always get compliments every time I do my hair/retouch from her. I really like her a lot & would recommend her to anyone. She will make you feel and look gorgeous. Trust me 🙂read more

I took my girlfriend here to get her eyebrows down after someone had previously ruined them. The elite team listened to... all her concerns and by the time she was done with her visit they had fixed her eyebrows way better than her expectations. She’s never loved her eyebrows as much as now. Very professional and excellent work.read more

This is a review for TINA. She colored my hair exactly the color I wanted even without showing her an example picture.... I just explained it to her and she got it all done! I also got the keratin done by her and my hair got softer and healthier than ever. She knows exactly what I want all the time. By far the best hair stylist I met!! Loveeeee!read more

If you are thinking about doing your eyebrows this is the place. It took me something before I made the decision since...

The staff is so professional and attentive.read more

I've been trying to find a hair salon that is good with Asian hair and does perm for forever, and finally found this... place. I got a cut and a perm from Mina, and it turned out amazing. She and her assistant are super friendly and helpful too. I would highly recommend this place and I'm definitely coming back in the future.read more

I came here just for a free consultation and instead decided to do a scar camouflage procedure with her. She covered... every single area on my neck that I didn’t like to see and left it like brand new!! Dr. Mahnaz was amazing!! She was very professional, understanding, and patient with me!! I will come back again to “Elite” because of her great service to her clients. Thank you so much!!read more

Absolutely love my new hair courtesy of Nicole!! I've bleached my hair a lot so it's become pretty dry and damaged, but... Nicole was very careful and thorough in treating it and was able to achieve the lightness and colour that I wanted! The process took about 4 hours but Nicole was so helpful in communicating and managing my expectations about what we could do in this session (which doesn't sound like a big deal, but anyone who bleaches and colours their hair will know that it can take literally half a day with an inexperienced stylist). The salon also has cookies to snack on and juice and soda while you wait which is a huge plus!read more

If you want the best, look no further. Eugene just doesn't cut hair, she has a sense of styling in her cuts to truly... bring out the best look in you. There are a lot of haircuts in Koreatown, but Eugene is simply the BEST hands down. In addition, the helpers are nice and cute, and they offer you a beverage at every visit.read more

Came here on a random Saturday because I didn't have the time to drive all the way down to Orange County to get my hair... done. My hair dresser was Ben and he was amazing!!! He's so passionate about his work and he educated me about my hair and how to take care of it. He really does go above and beyond and he is very realistic about the outcome of the color of my hair. Definitely recommend him. The other staff were also friendly which was nice. The place is clean and nice.read more

Amazing care and amazing work. Mahnaz took great care of me and did amazing work. I had a scar in my eyebrow from a car... accident and there was no hair growth. I had tried everything i could to cover it up and nothing worked. She fixed it for me with her permanent make up and now you can’t even tell there was a scar there. I highly recommend her work. Honestly I’m so happy.read more

They really care about their students, it’s important for them to make sure you’re understanding every subject,... even if you’re late for your class, they put the time and energy for you not to loose anything. I’m really glad that I chose this academy because I’m sure that there’s no other places that you can learn lots of techniques with this quality. As I know, All other places have 2 session classes but definitely this much information wouldn’t be covered completely in 2 sessions.read more

Amazing amazing amazing! My eyebrows look better than I could have dreamed. My whole life I’ve had very light, thin... brows. Going out in public without spending time filling them in was not an option. Now, my morning routine has been cut in half, and I can’t stop looking at my beautiful eyebrows. Thank you!!read more

I originally had come in for micro blading, which I received, however I was recommended for micro shading; as I like my... thick, full and bush brows! And, wow I am blown away! The owner herself worked on my brows for the micro shading and I couldn’t feel more blessed! Any compliments I’ve received on my brows since I cannot even take credit for! I recommend all of my clients as well as friends and family to elite permanent make up! They are so knowledgeable and talented! Get your brows done here! You will not regret it!read more

I recently completed the microblading course with elite permanent makeup and the school/ teachers exceeded all my... expectations. From what they teach you to how hands on they are it was such a great experience. The kits they give you are exactly what you need to get started. I left feeing confident in my skills and prepared to take clients by myself. Although I know I will be returned for more classes and education because they are the best! Thank you so much for everything this week! read more
