Hello my name is Taylor,

I was fortunate to have been born and raised in the Santa Cruz mountains, and I have always loved the eclectic blend of people who reside between the mountains and the sea. There is so much character in this unique town, and I believe this has shaped my decision in pursuing an artistic career in styling.

I learned about L'Atelier Salon through one of my close friends, and was intrigued by how highly she spoke of the salon. L'Atelier has a bright and beautiful energy all its own. The first time I walked through the doors I saw the stylists incredible creativity and passion in their work, and I knew I wanted to be a part of their team. The relationships being built and the beauty coming out of this salon is truly inspiring. I look forward to learning and growing with these talented artists, who share the same passion for styling as I do.

When I am not styling hair I enjoy hiking, horse back riding, and traveling (basically anything outdoors). On my favorite sunny summer days you can find me at the beach with my closest friends, or at any of my favorite brunch spots. I have a love for new experiences, and I am constantly seeking out my next adventure. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Taylor Bushnell

“I felt pampered from the minute I entered the salon.  Taylor took the time to find out any special issues with my hair and what I was looking for.  It’s been awhile since I enjoyed the luxury of a shampoo and style along with a haircut. The scalp and neck massage was an added bonus. The haircut was top notch. I give you 5-stars, Taylor!”

Barbara W.

“I am very pleased with my curly haircut from Taylor! She also provided many suggestions on how to care for my hair at home.  I scheduled another hair cut with her in 9 weeks.  I think I found my new stylist!”

Tammy R.

“I am SUPER happy with my hair! Taylor made a two-step plan to help me with my hair color, and extra-thick hair. After step one, I am already so pleased! My hair is toned to a natural shade and feels soft and swingy. Taylor is a lovely and bright person. She knows how to problem-solve, and communicate clearly. I was very comfortable with her, happy with her work, and can’t wait for my next appointment! Thank you!”

Jen M. 

"I haven't cut or dyed my hair in a long while. So, I was very excited to have balayage done for the first time. Taylor did such a fantastic job! My hair looks gorgeous! The color is flawless. I would definitely see her again and refer her to others. Thank you, Taylor!!"

Leigh V.

"Hi Megan! I wanted to tell you how great Taylor was with my daughter.  She's a spirited 6-year old with a million questions about everything and Taylor took it all in stride.  This was our second appointment with her and we will keep coming back. She was patient with Addison and gave her a great braid at the end which Addison was overjoyed with!  I know your salon doesn't cater specifically to children, but it's nice to know they are treated with the same respect as adults at your business.  As a small business owner, too, I really appreciate it!"

Amanda B.

"Hi Megan,

I was thrilled with my experience yesterday at your salon. I have always loved going there and had great experiences with Laina in the past. My schedule has gotten more and more hectic so I was stunned to be able to get a very, very long overdue haircut when I happened to have the time to stop by. And I totally loved Taylor. She seemed to hear what I was saying about my hair needs and lifestyle right away. I found her very easy to communicate with and definitely felt understood. I love my new shape and the products she recommended.

Thanks for keeping L’Atelier such a pleasant, relaxing place - for a very busy working mama it’s an oasis of calm!!"
