Hello, my name is Amanda Hall.

I watched L’Atelier bloom from an idea in 2006 to a reality in January 2008. The experience has been an inspiring journey, to say the least, and I am so very humbled to have been a part of its evolution to the very best salon in Santa Cruz!

L’Atelier is not only where I enjoy performing my art; it is a place that I feel confident and creative. I am a Santa Cruz native and have been a licensed cosmetologist since spring of 2004. My continuing education is very important to me; it enables me to keep up on the latest styles and trends. I have attended many advanced color and cutting classes ranging from Aveda, Kevin Murphy, Jane Iredale, DiPietro Todd advanced education, Bumble and Bumble, Wella and Alterna as well as attending and participating in L'Atelier's in house, bi-monthly, Develop Me Monday classes to name a few. Creating your perfect hair color to compliment your precision haircut is a skill I pride myself on.    

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my son Levi, family, and friends. I genuinely enjoy building strong relationships and I am proud to provide this space to my dedicated clientele. I love working in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz; the energy is upbeat and colorful. Come visit me in this gorgeous and artistic atmosphere.

I very much look forward to meeting you! 

Amanda Hall

"I would not have had the pleasure of visiting your establishment if it wasn't for Amanda asking for my assistance when her Subaru would not start. It was a chance meeting that resulted in my getting a fabulous haircut, thanks, of course, to Amanda's kind offer. Amanda was friendly, professional and provided a great experience. Likewise, the ladies in reception were nothing if not pleasant and accommodating. You are definitely doing something right at L'Atelier. I will most certainly recommend your salon and, in particular, Amanda."

"Some of my favorite days are spent at L'Atelier. I've never been disappointed with any of the services, staff, or overall experience. L'Atelier has created such a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing environment. The salon is right downtown on Pearl Alley, conveniently located on the Pacific Garden Mall and within walking distance to everything.  Amanda Hall is my stylist and is a wiz with color."

"Okay, I typically don't write reviews and I never thought I'd write one about a hair salon - but i've never been to one where everyone is so nice/kind/thoughtful and professional. They know there stuff and their client service is above and beyond.  They listen and they are there to figure out how to make you happy and get you what you want with your hair/style, etc. From the folks at the front desk to the stylists they all make you feel like a rock star and important. Special shout out to the amazing owner Jenna and Amanda. GO HERE!"
