Anita & Ashley Kouza
Jordan since she could remember has always wanted to be a hair stylist. Her aunt owned a hair salon, she grew up in the salon and has always had a passion for hair. She has been licensed for 5 years and specializes in color and dreadlocks. She loves making people feel beautiful when they walk out the salon. She's a San Diego native and loves to enjoy the beach with friends and all the good food San Diego has to offer!
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.
