Welcome to the Neighborhood!
Nestled between Elysian Park and the hills of Echo Park, you’ll find neighborhood salon. By definition, a neighborhood is a localized community within a larger city, and it is under that exact premise that owner and hairstylist, Ava Shire, created neighborhood salon. A third generation Echo Park resident, Ava strived to create a place that embodies the vibrance of the community she loves. At neighborhood, creativity is never compromised for convenience, and you’ll always feel right at home.
We are a Davines Salon, utilizing their full product line as well as stocking Kevin Murphy styling products.
Neighborhood Salon is also the place to purchase ceramics by Peter Shire's Echo Park Pottery.
