Choosing environmentally friendly products and socially responsible brands are essential to our mission of maintaining harmony with our planet and community.

Davines: Founded in 1983 by the Bollati family, their focus is on crafting quality products that are scientifically engineered for effectiveness and express their distinctive style and spirit. As a B-Corp company, Davines makes everything with special attention to and respect for our environment. Many products are still grown and produced in the family-owned facility in Parma, Italy.

Olaplex: bond-building and protecting additive for compromised hair.

Keratin Complex: smoothing services delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired by infusing hair with high concentrations of keratin to strengthen and fortify the hair (formaldehyde free).

Oway Owave Organic Perm: the first perm and texturizing system to use fair trade açai oil, organic hops and oat peptides to create bouncy, beautiful curls without thioglycolates, ammonia or parabens.

Highly versatile and customizable, Wave Shaper can be used as a relaxer or perm for any hair type or condition. Rich in antioxidants, amino acids and plant proteins, this organic perm leaves hair healthy and soft. 

Pulp Riot: vegan, direct-dye, vivid hair colors that provide a rainbow of options for hair without ammonia.

Imaginary Authors: bespoke unisex fragrances that evoke compelling story lines peppered with intriguing twists. These are scents to curl up with, to share with friends, to take with you wherever you go, and to return to again and again for a uniquely transcendent experience.

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.

Helena Noriega

Helena is an East Bay native, and a passionate stylist. 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 boys, Santiago and Lucas.

Mari is a California native, born in SoCal but raised in the Eastbay. She is a Cinta Aveda Institute alumni and believes in the importance of continuing education, always learning new techniques and products to provide excellent services to her clients. She chose her career as a hairstylist to not only help people look and feel beautiful from the outside but also impact the way they feel on the inside. Her main focus behind the chair is to help people not have to worry about their outer appearance or their hair at least until their next visit, life can be hard so to have just one less thing to worry about can make a difference. Some of her favorite techniques are textured looks, highlights, vibrant colors, and sunkissed balayage. When Mari isn’t in the salon she is usually cuddling her two cats, siren and boots, or tending to her plants.

What is Green Circle?


Raven & Rose has joined the Green Circle Salon family. We have committed to changing the impact of the beauty industry on the environment to recover and repurpose beauty waste ensuring that we can help keep people and the planet beautiful.

A $2 Environmental Stewardship Fee (ESF) is included in all services. This small contribution allows us to participate in North America’s only salon recycling program which recovers and repurposes up to 95% of resources that were once considered waste materials such as hair, leftover hair color, foils, color tubes, aerosol cans, paper and plastics. The ESF also supports further green changes in our business such as upgrading to LED light fixtures, water saving nozzles, and low-flow toilets.




What are your COVID-19 protocols?


Please visit our Coronavirus webpage for the latest information on how our team is providing increased sanitation and disinfection in the salon.




How Accessible Is Your Shop?


Physical Accessibility: Outside the storefront, there are 3 steps to a patio-like platform where our door is. There is a sloped area from the sidewalk to the platform a little east of our door, in front of Cafe Raj. The slope is a little steep -- manual wheelchair users may have to work a little hard to get up the slope. Our door and entrance is wheelchair accessible, with a ½”-¾” metal lip for the doorframe. The shop has flat, smooth tiled floor, with some ergonomic mats around the salon chairs and a rug in a seating area near the front door. The salon chairs spin, and raise and lower, so transferring from wheelchair to chair is made easier. We can also move chairs to cut/bleach/dye/etc your hair in your wheelchair. The shampoo bowls/chairs are not mobile, and are reclined. We can help you transfer from wheelchair to shampoo chair and help you get up, but unfortunately we cannot shampoo your hair in your wheelchair. We have storage space near our front door for wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, canes, crutches, and other mobility aids if you do not need them during your appointment. Our bathroom is not wheelchair accessible. If you are an ambulatory wheelchair user, and can walk 3 feet, you can wheel to the door and get up to use the bathroom, but unfortunately it is too small to maneuver a wheelchair in the bathroom. There is a handle to assist with getting up from the toilet. Fat Accessibility: Our shampoo chairs are 19” wide at the seat, between armrests. The armrests are not removable or adjustable unfortunately. Our salon chairs are also 19” wide at the seat and the arm rests are attached along the entire side of the chair. They are not removable or adjustable either. Sensory Accessibility: Our salon is not scent-free and unfortunately the lines of products we carry make no scent-free products. Scents are sometimes strong and sometimes mild -- it’s unpredictable. Strong scents tend to linger for around 3-5 minutes and then dissipate. We have two fans on either side of the salon and have our doors open in the front and back. We play a variety of music throughout the day on speakers in the salon, ranging in style. Feel free to bring earbuds/earplugs. If you have ear defenders or noise-cancelling headphones, we will wrap them in cling/plastic wrap (if you are getting color/bleach/dye), and we will need you to take them off when applying the product, or cutting your hair. There are various other sounds in the salon throughout the day, including but not limited to: * Conversations between stylists, clients, and the receptionist * Blowdryers of various volumes * Laundry machine (does a little song when finished washing and drying, chimes when turned on and off -- dryer tends to squeak a bit) * Fans -- they make a soft, low humming noise * We are by a busy street, so there may be cars revving up the street and conversations of passersby, or dogs barking * Our chairs are made of pleather with plastic coverings on the back. * Our capes are made of a slippery material that makes a “ssk ssssk” sound * We have soft lighting, some bulbs are fluorescent but most are not. * You are welcome to listen to your own music during your appointment. Deaf/HoH and Blind/VI Accessibility: The shop is long and skinny, with salon chairs placed both to the right and the left, and the ergonomic mats around them. We recommend having your stylist guide you to your chair, simply because there are a lot of obstacles and other stylists and clients moving around. We currently do not have any stylists that are fluent in ASL, our receptionist is learning ASL but is a beginner. We are happy to communicate through whatever means are easiest for you with that in mind. The music we play varies in volume, so at times it may be more difficult to hear your stylist or another person. If that is the case, we can easily lower the volume of the music, or turn it off for your appointment. If you have any access needs or questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at hello@ravenandrosehair.com or call us (if that is accessible to you) at 510-529-4790. Our receptionist (as of September 2021) is a neurodiverse ambulatory wheelchair user. If we are missing any accessibility info, also let us know and we will add it!
