I have been an Aveda stylist for over 15 years. I love the beauty industry for its never-ceasing growth and inspiring passion. Aveda is where my careers began and I have spent my years perfecting my knowledge of Aveda color and techniques. I immediately fell in love with Aveda's pursuit to care for the environment while sourcing quality natural ingredients to deliver incredible result driven products. My commitment to every guest I work with is to provide the highest level service that leaves them inspired, rejuvenated and encouraged. I love watching a guest be blown away by their first head and shoulder massage or that moment when you turn the chair to see their new look. These are the moments that give me life!
As a salon owner I am honored by the opportunity it provides me to be a part of the lives of so many, From an educator's role, community outreach, salon mentoring and our commitment to the environment our business exists to spread kindness.
I like to do haircuts for both men and women, and I especially enjoy drastic, transformative haircuts. I love doing hair colors, the ombré and balyage are among my favorites, but I also love the brighter, louder colors as well. Braiding and up-dos are a specialty for me. I want to make people feel and look their best!
Although I was born in Southern California, my Dad's Air Force career moved us to Fairfield when I was little. I graduated from Vanden and Solanoand married my high school sweetheart. We live in Vacaville with our big, sweet furbaby named Appa. In my spare time, I enjoy movies, especially the horror and action variety, books, and playing soccer with my husband. I hope to one day adopt all the dogs.
My name is Jamie and I have always had a passion for hair. Currently, I invest all my free time exploring social media, watching tutorials, educating myself with new Aveda techniques, and enjoying music. I fell in love with Aveda and everything it has to offer within my first few days of working at this salon, and haven’t looked back since. The customizable color line, the earth friendly packaging and production, the plant-derived color line and products, it all was a perfect fit for me!
Currently, the services I offer are:
Precision hair cuts
Custom hair color
Botanical conditioning treatments
Specialty add ons (Olaplex Treatments and Malibu Makeover Treatments)
My specialty is dimensional hair color, blonding, and balayage/ombre. One of my favorite ways to transform a look for a client is by changing them to a low maintenance and “lived in” color and style. There is a way to make every color look natural, soft, and blended, even a FASHION color. I have had multiple hair color, cut, and style classes with varying brands, and am always educating myself on new trends and formulations. Staying ahead of the trends is essential and what keeps my clients coming back.
I have social media and love hearing from my clients and how happy they are with their services. Follow my hair journey on instagram: @hairlove_jamie, keep up to date with my guests results on my business facebook page: Hairlove_jamie, and as always give Essenza Salon a fabulous review on Yelp. Let’s create something magical!
Hair is my passion and AVEDA has my devotion. I love to create beautiful hair for each one of my guests, not least because I get to do it with such an eco-friendly and health-conscious line of products. I specialize in all-things color: All Over Color, Balayage Highlights, Hair Color Blocking, Ombre, you name it! I also do haircuts for women, men, and kids of all ages.
So far I have dedicated nine years to this wonderful profession, and I plan to continue making beautiful hair for many more years to come. One of my favorite things about being a hairdresser is that the learning process never stops. Whether it be training for all the newest techniques at one of Avedas renowned classes or simply watching YouTube for quick reference, I am constantly working to refine my craft and to keep myself up to speed on all the latest and greatest trends. When a career and a passion come together, beautiful things happen!
I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2013. I began my journey at the bottom and worked my way up telling myself that I wouldn’t stay stagnant for long. Fast forward and here I am today that is being an independent contractor and being reminded daily of the reason I chose this career path.
I adore my job. I get to do what I love, chat with my guests, hear their stories and listen to music all day. What’s not to love?As a hairstylist, I am humbled to have a job inspires confidence, leaving people looking and feeling beautiful.
