New to L'Atelier Salon? All new guests are invited to schedule a complimentary consultation with their desired stylist. We will then consult with you for the very best cut, color and style for you based on your skin tone, face shape, personal routine, lifestyle and hair care needs. Please know that all reservations include a comprehensive consultation before the commencement of your service; it is our specialty and honor to get to know you and your hair-care desires.  We very much look forward to meeting you!

Voted Best Green Business by the community of Santa Cruz, and a certified green business by the Monterey Green Business Program year after year. L’Atelier Salon is unique in its commitment to eco-friendly products, service and customer care. L’Atelier uses materials that are safe for clients, stylists and the environment.  Including post-consumer recycled paper, LED light bulbs, and food-grade, biodynamic and organic products from Kevin Murphy, Jane Iredale, Sacha Jaun and DeVa Curl as well as the color line from I.C.O.N. which is natural and ammonia-free.

"I was drawn to the space because of its convenient location and abundant natural light. With two open stories and high ceilings, the architecture affords ventilation and an airy, bright working space. L’Atelier was designed and fabricated by local artisans—from the stunning front desk to the rotating art on the salon’s walls—and provisioned by local vendors—from the low VOC paints to the sustainably harvested cork flooring. Its central location offers clients and stylists low-impact options for travel by foot, bicycle or public transportation.
Thank you for your interest in L’Atelier and all that we have to offer. We very much look forward to meeting you!"
