Founder & Stylist
Brenda Barnaby started her first salon in Phoenix in 1994. In just a few years, she grew it to a 1.6 million dollar business that has since been named one of the top 200 salons in the nation by Salon Today Magazine for 10+ years.
She brings that experience to San Diego where she is ready to do it again. Building community and relationships that span generations with our guests, team, and industry partners is the foundation of what drives her. As a stylist, her specialty is fine hair, beautiful grey coverage, and helping people grow their hair rather than putting it off their appointments; encouraging clients to come in often for subtle “touch-ups and tune-ups” and creating lived-in cuts and color.
My favorite place! Relaxing, fun, and the quality is amazing. Request Autumn, she's the best! Especially if you want a great hair color.
The team that works there are not only amazing at what they do but also very fun and enthusiastic which makes every trip into something more than just a haircut.
She was so nice and gave me the best haircut of my life!
I was in San Diego last week for wedding and I needed to get my hair done for that night. I found this super cute salon close to our airbnb. It was a Sunday morning and I couldn't believe they were open! I was greeted by Brenda, one of the owners.She was so nice and gave me the best haircut of my life! I think I will need to make monthly trips to San Diego now to get my hair cut.
The new salon is sleek and modern, but also cozy, and all the staff I've met are terrific.
I've been getting my hair cut & colored by Cait Lukowski for several months now and she's amazing! She's really fun and sweet and makes sure she understands what I want. The new salon is sleek and modern, but also cozy, and all the staff I've met are terrific. I get lots of compliments on my hair, so I'm a happy (and well coiffed) camper!
