Anita & Ashley Kouza

Two San Diego Native sisters,  partnered up to make Ashley's vision of opening a salon in Ocean Beach, CA a reality. Older sister Anita's business expertise and degree in Economics from San Diego State University helped her sister make her dream come true.  Together they make the perfect team.  The Kouza sisters have always been hardworking and goal orientated both of which they credit to their parents.  They share a love for animals, especially their adorable 10 year old cockapoo, Charlie.  It was important to them to make sure the salon was cruelty free and dog friendly.
