I have been going to Ernie for years. He is the best, the salon is beautiful and classy and I have never been disappointed. I have blonde hair and get continuously complimented on how stunningly natural and healthy it looks. It 's not really nature it's Ernie, nature's gift to women.
Top Notch Salon – Mission Ten Eleven Salon offers everything you want in a salon: excellent customer service, consistently great results, a beautiful setting, non-ridiculous prices, and a friendly and attentive staff. Gillian does my color and I have gotten compliments on it ever since, which is not easy because I have a fair amount of grey to cover. Then I got my first Brazilian Blowout with Gabriella and, unfortunately I did not get the results I had hoped for. When I expressed my disappointment to her a bit later, she and salon owner Ernie worked with me to make the necessary adjustments at no additional cost to me. Now I am very happy with the results! And they have been nothing but kind and lovely to me ever since. I am a very satisfied client.

Mission Ten Eleven Salon
Fantastic salon & Gillian is GREAT! – I moved back to the Pasadena area about a year and a half ago from New York and was looking for a salon. I was initially referred to a nearby salon, but after reading reviews decided to go elsewhere. I found Mission Ten Eleven through reviews online and when I made my appointment I was paired with Gillian. She is GREAT! She always gives me a great cut and never tries to push her own vision for my hair on me (which I've definitely experienced before at other salons). She is super professional and knows what's she's doing when it comes to hair. I have crazy curly hair, which I always wear straight, and she always spends the time to blow dry my hair pin straight. Not only is the cut initially great, but it's always a cut that grows out really well. If you are looking for a new salon, or looking to make a switch, you should definitely go to Gillian.
A salon you must see to believe – Mission Ten Eleven is a salon that I highly recommend for several reasons! Owner, Ernie Hernandez has meticulously perfected exactly what a salon should entail. From the great variety of music channeling through the cool Bose speakers, to the fact that this salon is environmentally sustainable.
The moment that you step in to this beautifully decorated salon it will be obvious how much thought and detail has gone into this establishment. The staff and the stylists are all very friendly and attentive. Even stylists other than your own are very friendly and are quick to remember your name. Everyone there makes you feel welcomed and comfortable.
The shampoo bowls are absolutely the best I have ever seen or used. No strained neck with these shampoo bowls. They have a small comfortable platform where your head rests through the entire shampoo and conditioning process.
The owner, Ernie Hernandez is a highly experienced and very talented stylist. Over the years Ernie has made it a point to teach his clients how to correctly blowdry or straighten their hair so that they can achieve the best styles at home. He makes sure to quickly go over the most important techniques and he is happy to pass on his expertise. He is funny, interesting and has one of the best personalities of anyone that I have ever known. I can’t say enough good things about him.
Gabriela is fantastic with the blowdryer and she does the absolute best shampoos that I have ever experienced.
Please do yourself a favor and check out the website.

best salon in the area and Gillian is a great stylist – i met Gillian, my stylist, back when she was working at a nearby salon. she has always been a pro with my somewhat hard to manage hair. i have followed her to Mission Ten Eleven since last year. i really enjoy the vibe of this place - not as crowded as many others, very clean, hip, upscale without the attitude. (well it doesn't hurt that i live upstairs from the salon and can just walk downstairs)
i have recommended many of my friends to come here as well. no strong up-selling of products, they do it the way you request while giving you good and respectful advice and overall just a great experience.
i highly recommend the salon and Gillian!
My hair reached Nirvana at the best kept secret in L.A. – After many years of seeking the perfect color and cut, I finally found it. Gillian is a shear genius and colorist who demonstrates comprehensive knowledge of tone, hue, highlights, lowlights, texture and style. From my very first visit, I was ecstatic with the color and highlights and the brilliant texturized cut whose lines are so easy to work with. As if reading my mind, Gillian translated a specific red hue I found hard to describe into gorgeous hair color. Until Gillian, no other hair stylist could (and I've been to them all). I was amazed at how effortlessly she nailed it. She instills confidence without being opinionated and her flexibility is quite reassuring. It's a glorious feeling to know my hair is the best it can be and I can look forward to that feeling every time I go to Mission Ten Eleven. I have never received more compliments and I am delighted to share the best hair secret in L.A. Mission Ten Eleven is also a wondrous place to chillout - it is charming, cozy, ecologically aware and and terminally hip. I wish everyone who desires the cut and color of their dreams would go to Gillian. The world would be such a happy place!
don't bother going anywhere else – Mission Ten Eleven doesn't miss a thing as a top tier salon! Very comfortable while also very sleek, with great music everytime I've been in there. Gillian has been my stylist here and I've never had better hair cuts! She's incredibly good at what she does and she also has that special talent to hear the "I want it kind of like....." and turn it into exactly what you were looking for.
Gotta get your haircut here! – If you're looking for a hip salon full of friendly and professional stylists, you gotta go to Mission Ten Eleven. The location is perfect, and you can easily park or hop off the Gold Line. Gillian is the stylist you've always been looking for! Her expertise is evident with your results, and she's a pro at color and cuts! And she's got the perfect skill set of being a great listener ...hearing what you want AND combining that with a mastery of her trade with what suits your face and specific hair needs. I followed her to this salon and Gillian has been consistently fantastic with every visit. I've received many compliments about my hair, one of the perks of a Gillian cut. The salon is welcoming, classy and unpretentious.
IS THIS HAIR HEAVEN? – Gillian is SO fabulous, that I followed her from a previous Salon to Mission 1011...and it's been the best "obsession" of my hair career! I'm 40, I'm blond and my hair is not "model thick" - enough said - I've had my share of salon "experiences", and Gillian at Mission 1011 is where I have gone to Hair Heaven. First of all, Mission 1011 is unlike any other salon I've ever visited. It doesn't have that "over-booked, please take a seat and we'll ignore you for a bit and then act like we care" vibe you get from the usual salons on this level.
It's a friendly, hip space with the BEST shampoo chairs EVER! Trust me...if nothing else - you gotta come in and least get a shampoo. That alone will make you a believer. Gillian is a master at personalized color, and is so in tune with what will be the best look on ME. I am always changing up my color and style, and it's never thrown Gillian a curve ball...she hits a homerun every visit and EVERYTIME I leave the salon, I feel like a million bucks! And the entire staff was more than generous to me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. We looked absolutely fabulous. But, more important...we FELT absolutely fabulous because that's how you feel when you are at Mission 1011 - on your wedding day, or any day. And, Ernie could not be more personal and inviting. Again, you just feel like a million bucks when you are there. It's truly heavenly.
And a quick note (and this is a true story)...I was recently out for dinner at an upscale restaurant in town, and the waitress flipped out over my hair. She took photos of me before we left - I'm NOT kidding - yes, a bit kooky, but I felt like a million bucks, and I had to let Gillian know. She makes me look fabulous! So, Call Mission 1011 today - ask for Gillian - book an appoinment (she's in high demand...so plan ahead) - give Ernie a kiss and a wave when you get there and get ready to feel fabulous...cause you will. You have finally arrived at HAIR HEAVEN!
