“The first time I walked into L’Atelier Salon as an applying, new-in-town stylist, I knew the space was everything I was looking for. The artists within the building, the light, the air, and being in downtown Santa Cruz: all of it excited me. L’Atelier Salon was everything I dreamed of and more as a possible new salon home. I feel SO honored to be the Owner since January 2017. I am so grateful for the opportunity to provide a space for a long-lasting career for any stylist or staff member, a safe-haven for all guests, and to be a part of a downtown community of small business owners who support and lift each other up. I welcome you to my home and my family at L’Atelier Salon. You will be taken care of, and that’s our promise.”
