Fandango Salon - The best place in Silver Lake to get your new do and a new you!
Whether you've lived in Silver Lake for years or you are new in town, there's a good chance that you have never heard of this terrific little Salon. It's a bit hard to find that first time, tucked in behind El Conquistador Mexican Restaurant. The actual street address for Fandango Salon is 1601 Griffith Park, Blvd. There is a small lot behind to the right of the building and street parking is available as well.
Fandango Salon is the brain child of owner and hair stylist/colorist extraordinaire, Barbara James. Barbara opened the salon in May of 2001 in the cool blue art deco building in the Silver Lake Triangle. (For those of you not in the know, the Silver Lake Triangle is that little park off Sunset where Edgecliffe and Griffith Park Blvd come together.) Triangle Park is the same place you can find the Silver Lake Farmers' Market in full swing every Saturday morning. But I digress...
Fandango Salon is an Aveda Salon and they offer a huge selection of Aveda products for both men and women. Aveda products fit in perfectly with the earth-friendly Silver Lake vibe as all of their products are made with natural (mostly organic) ingredients, are never tested on animals, and even their packaging is recyclable.
Fandango Salon is closed on Mondays, but open from 10am -8pm Tuesday through Thursday, Fridays from 10am-7pm and you can even get a Saturday appointment from 9am-6pm. How perfect is that? Head over to the Silver Lake Farmers' Market on Saturday for your weekly fix of fun and fresh produce, and then treat yourself to the perfect look before heading home! Their eight chairs are normally full, so be sure to call ahead for an appointment. You can reach them at: 323-663-6965.
When it comes to hair- they do it all: Cut, condition, color, perms, sets and blow dries. If you're looking for something special, how about an up-do? But Fandango Salon doesn't stop at hair. They also do make up application and make up instruction, body waxing, brown threading and facial tinting. They've got some really great body and skin treatments available as well such as body wraps, body scrubs, massage/reflexology, facials and anti-aging treatments. Call the salon for a full list of offerings.
I first found out about this great little salon from a friend whose locks I was admiring. She told me about Fandango and her stylist, Carmen, and I've been a regular there with Carmen ever since.
Carmen does great cut and color, plus eyebrow threading waxing and more!
If you've been driving yourself to Beverly Hills or Santa Monica for your salon fix, save the time, money and hassle and support a great local business. I can tell you I do- I'll be back in Carmen's chair at Fandango Salon in Silver Lake again next month for sure!
