There are some differences between Ecuadorian type of hair and white gringa's type of hair. Ecuadorian type of hair is a little coarser and thicker in texture. It is hard to find hair stylist in Quito who can do decent coloring and haircut for white gringa's type of hair.  
Lina works with both types of hair: Ecuadorian and European.  

After you have manicure, pedicure and your hair done by Russian speaking specialists, you can spend few hours celebrating International Women Day in the company of Russians
