Meet Gwen

The Humble Hairstylist

I realized that I wanted to be a hairstylist when I was only four years old. A haircut at a hole-in-the wall salon next to my parents’ jewelry store made me feel my most confident to date. As I strutted back, holding up my corduroys that were a size too big, I realized that I wanted everyone to feel as amazing as I did in that exact moment and thus my future was decided. My desire to uplift people’s self-confidence through the power of bleach and blow dryers deepened through the years as I would watch makeover shows; sitting through the episode practically jones-ing for the big reveal. If it was really good, the guest would cry when she saw the potential she had had all along, and ironically, would ruin her makeup. There were quite a few years of treating my friends and family like lab rats, everyone getting high off of ammonia in poorly ventilated bathrooms, before I happily made my way to cosmetology school in Santa Monica, CA.  My admiration for this industry deepens every day and I’m incredibly fortunate to get to say I love what I do. 

While I am grateful for the skill set I have and the work I get to do with it, none of it would matter if I didn't have my clients. I consider each of you to be the conditioner to my shampoo. It is, and has always been, my goal to help you find what makes you happy and confident. I truly believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful and everyone deserves more good hair days. Whether you are a supermodel, a CEO, a mom--or all of the above, I stand behind the chair as your Humble Hairstylist.

“Gwen has helped transform my hair from boring to awesome. I can’t tell you how many people stop and compliment me on my highlights and color combo since I have been seeing her. Not only does she listen to what you want, the girl knows what’s up! I have very fine hair and was really worried about over-processing, but my hair has never been in better condition.” 

–Tracy S.

“I have had many hairstylist in my lifetime and I can honestly say Gwen is the best. She knows how to style my difficult, frizzy hair and make it look beautiful both straight and curly. She offers suggestions and my hair always turns out better than I expected. I always look forward to my haircuts because not only does my hair look great after, I love hanging at her salon and catching up with her!” 

–Courtney S.

"Gwen did a fantastic job on my hair.  The color looks great and lasts well.  And the cut suits my lifestyle--if I'm too busy to blowdry and style, it still looks good just air-dried.  Gwen is fun to talk to and has a great instinct for color and style.  I'm so glad I found her!"

-Rebecca S.

"Gwen is the only stylist I trust for my blonde highlights and cut. My husband, once only a barbershop guy, is now hooked too! Could not be happier. Highly highly recommend!"

-Erica R.
