Hello, I am Kasandra!

Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.

For as long as I could remember, after every trip to the beach with my family or friends, I’ve always told myself that one day I was going to move to Santa Cruz. That day finally came and I am so excited to be a part of the Santa Cruz community!

When I was younger I developed a passion for coloring hair. I practiced on my doll's hair, my hair, or a friends or family members hair. The older I became, the more I became passionate about ways I could help women feel better about themselves in today’s society.

In 2016, I finally started chasing my dreams and enrolled in the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy and graduated with honors. I started off my career by assisting a salon owner at one of the top salons in Modesto and I am so grateful for everything I learned from her. When I had the opportunity to relocate to Santa Cruz, I knew it was time to take the jump for a new chapter.

While looking around at salons in the area, I came across L’Atelier. When I came in for the first time I immediately fell in love. From the salons interior design, to meeting Megan, to seeing how the other stylists work and interact with each other, I knew this was the place I absolutely had to be at. I am so incredibly excited and grateful to start this new journey in such a beautiful town and to have my new salon home at L’Atelier!

I have a passion for all things color, and I am a Pulp Riot Preferred Stylist specializing in vivid color transformations.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my boyfriend, watch as many hair educational videos that I can get my hands on, go to concerts, read, take my kayak out, go to San Jose Sharks hockey games and go to Disneyland when I have the time to make it down there.

I am so excited to meet you soon! Kasandra
