Why Tough Love?

Our founder, Lisa Cardillo, is known for her excellent skills as a hair stylist and for being “professionally honest” with her clients. She knows that her clients really appreciate the honest feedback of an experienced beauty professional. This is the origin of our hair salon name and the origin of our “Straight Talk” core value. Tough Love is referring to the careful art of saying what needs to be said, in the spirit of doing what’s right, while educating clients about how to achieve and maintain their best look.

It’s all about doing what’s right for the LOVE of hair and beauty!

Different By Design

We know our hair salon is a little different… but it’s a good kind of different… and we like it that way! We wanted to create something unlike anything else in the area, and that’s exactly what we have done. Both men and women appreciate that our hair salon is bright, clean, modern, efficient, and filled with premium features. We love when our clients tell us that we have an upscale salon with an atmosphere that is comfortable and down to earth. Our core values are reflected in everything we do and we know you’re going to love it here.

Our Core Values

Amazing Stylists.

We are serious about cultivating an amazing team of professionals. We have high standards and are committed to ongoing education because there are always new products, techniques, and trends. You can be sure that our hair stylists are well educated and are always learning more.

Straight Talk.

We believe in being “professionally honest” with you. Our hair stylists discuss your goals, offer their professional opinion, and educate you about their recommendations. It’s all about open and honest communication in the spirit of doing what’s right for your specific needs.

Excellent Service.

We want you to enjoy every interaction you have with us. Aside from looking beautiful and feeling great, we want you to be completely satisfied with every aspect of our salon. If we ever fail to meet your expectations, we want to know, and we will do our best to make it right.

I had my hair done by Tori a few months ago when she was a student and loved her so much I followed her to Tough Love and I'm so glad I did! Tori does such an amazing job with my highlights. It looks better than it's ever looked! My mom went to Gina and used the Groupon for color. Gina did a beautiful job as well. We're both so happy with our hair!Tough Love is a beautiful, clean salon. They offered us beverages while we were there and felt welcomed as soon as we walked in. I can't wait to go back again!read more

Tori Potter has done my hair every time, and it’s better each visit. I absolutely LOVE going to her ; she asks what you want done, and gives you exactly what you want. She makes you feel like a completely new person when it’s all said and done! She’s so talented, and definitely is going to make a statement in this industry one day!!read more

I discovered Tough Love through groupon and I am so glad I did! I fell in love with the atmosphere as soon as I walked in and I have been in SO many salons and never felt more welcome. Lisa and Kat were very accommodating to my changing work schedule during the busy holiday season and that spoke volumes to me! Kat gave me everything that I asked for and she and Lisa explained why certain things wouldn't work and what things would be best. I've been referring everyone I know since then and will never go to another place!read more

Could not love this place more! Lisa is a gem and an amazing colorist/ stylist. They have just gotten it right from the vibe of the salon, staff, & overall experience of a spotless clean and honest approach! We have gone for over a year now 3 or 4 times and we always leave super happy. My young daughter also comes ready now with a style/ twist in mind for after the cut since Lisa did this for her the first time we came! Efforts like these make Tough Love a special place to treat yourself vs a stuffy & loud salon any day. :))read more

Lisa does amazing work! After moving to Pasadena four years ago, I had a hard time finding someone who I felt completely confident in. My search is over! I've been seeing her regularly now for a year and have recommended her to all of my friends and family.read more
