She was trained by a diverse group of educators from the beginning of her career, inspiring her to eventually become a Network Educator with Bumble&bumble in San Francisco.

Julia is a local stylist/artist born and raised in the Bay Area. She has been licensed for nine years and has a strong appreciation for all hair types and personal style. She is a lover of her stoop garden, fashion, cooking and most importantly her dog Pacino. She began her training at Cinta Aveda Institute in San Francisco and has continued to take advanced courses. She maintains an enthusiastic opinion that “We can always learn more!”. She draws inspiration from styles of the past just as much as she does from the present with trendy cuts. She specializes in subtle and natural color, highlights and balayage. She tends to give her clients easy-to-style hair that they should be able to duplicate at home. Julia loves to gab with all different kinds of people and is most passionate about the confidence hair can bring. She has a strong attention to detail and is known to run after you at the desk to just snip one last hair.

Senior Stylist

Nadia approaches hairstyling as a chance to use her natural creativity and training as a professional artist, whether her clients have a precise intention or present her with the opportunity to guide them, she uses hair as a medium for expression. Over the past 10 years she has learned that while we sculpt and color with a clear vision, it is essential to let the hair tell you what to do. Some of her specialties include using shears, razors, and clippers to achieve precision cuts, whether you are going for funky asymmetrical styles, long blended layers, or manageable curls; colors of all sorts; and dreadlocks / dread perms. She understands that communication and education are the keys to showcasing her abilities as a stylist and helping clients recreate their desired look out of the salon

Educated and trained at Laney college, she enjoys working with a variety of textures and types of hair; as well as connecting with all different kinds of clients. She understands the importance of a personalized experience when it comes to hair care, styling, and coloring; she is passionate about hearing and meeting all your wants and needs (within the laws of science)! Her biggest loves thus far are soft lived in cuts, creative colors, soft romantic balayage, bold color melts, and learning new things! She believes you have to know the rules in order to bend them and be creative. When Helena is not styling her client’s hair behind the chair, she can be found spending time with her husband and sweet baby boy, Santiago.
