Spa Nail Tech
I have loved doing hair since I was little and have always enjoyed the business side of it. After 15 years in the industry I decided to follow my dreams and open Ahava Salon and Spa. Having dreams come true is something I wish everyone can experience someday!
I am passionate about making people feel beautiful and confident. Part of this amazing industry is the education. My on-going education has taken me as close as Chicago, and as far as New York and even Spain.
Keeping up with trends and fashion is very important to me to help my guest have the look they want!
I have been in the beauty industry for a number of years but have had a love for hair since I was a little girl. I believe this is what I’m meant to do. The best part of my job is that it doesn’t feel like a job, it’s my love, passion, and I get to learn something new every day.
I love getting to know my guests and make them feel beautiful. Seeing the vision come to life, and my guests leaving the salon more confident makes my day! I love doing bridal hair, highlighting, and long layered cuts among many other things, and enjoying combining my guests ideas with my own to create the best look for them!
“Beauty isn’t about looking perfect, it’s about celebrating your individuality.”
Making people look and feel beautiful, and confident has always been important to me. I grew up watching my mom and her love for hair which inspired me to follow in her footsteps. So in 2003 I started my career which quickly became my passion!
I love to learn and grow, and continue to take classes to do just that! I keep up on the latest techniques and trends so I can always bring you a fresh look. Not only do I take advantage of all the in salon training I am provided, but I travel throughout the midwest as well.
I can’t wait to meet you!

I also give the tools and knowledge to be able to recreate this look in their day-to-day lives, while ensuring my art and their hair stays vibrant and healthy between visits. I will always truly listen to the wants and need of every one of my guests, yet educate them as to the best look to compliment their face shape, skin tone, and lifestyle.
I also love doing hair and makeup for film, television, editorial and weddings.
Making people feel confident and beautiful is the best part of my job.
In my freetime I love to be active; fitness and nutrition are a huge part of my life.
Spa Nail Technician
I have been doing nails since 2010. My education started at The Salon Professional Academy, and I also had advanced training with Shellac Nail Polish.

My mission is to tend to all my guests’ nail needs, while they relax.
I have been a hairstylist for a number of years now, and with each passing day my passion for the industry continues to grow. My favorite thing is to figure out what is going to make my guest feel their most beautiful and confident, and then to make your hair dreams come true!
I also love the art of making your nails look beautiful. I continue to take classes to better myself and would love to share what I learn with you.
All of my guests have my promise that when they leave my chair they will have a beautiful new look and all of the knowledge they need to recreate their new style in the comfort of their own home.
I have been doing hair for many years and have loved every minute. My education started at The Salon Professional Academy, but I continue to learn and grow. I have taken classes in Milwaukee and Chicago, and also did advanced training at The Redken Exchange in New York. I also did a 5 day job shadow at Sam Bracado Salon in New York.
Areas of my career that I love and specialize in are bobs, short hair, long layer, highlights, and coloring.
My career brings something new everyday. I love working with my clients to achieve a look that makes them feel beautiful.
I have been in love with hair since I was 6 years old and as an adult, I decided to stop playing with hair and pursue my dream. Now I get the opportunity to meet amazing people and make their hair visions a reality.
I love all things hair but special occasion styles, color, and extensions are my top three favorite things to do. Kinky/curly hair? No problem! I would love to give you tips and tricks to own those curls!
I look forward to seeing you soon!

I can’t wait to get to know you!
Fascinated by the human body and astounded with touch and how it soothes and heals our structure and soul, I will forever be a student of science, anatomy, spirit and energy. 900 hours of training at The National Holistic Institute equipped me with vast knowledge of our bodies and an array of massage modalities. An additional 450 hours of Neuromuscular therapy with cadaver labs was what I wanted to blend a beautiful balance of body and being work; a customized session that relaxes the client AND provides results.
In 6 years of this field, I have been a teacher assistant, an ambassador, and member of the American Massage Therapy Association. I have been employed by the internationally acclaimed Spa & Resort, Solage Calistoga CA, Beau Therapeutic studio in Oakland CA, Wellness Wisdom in Benicia CA, my own private practice and now Ahava. I believe in looking at the client and body as a whole; knowing that what we do, eat, say, think and feel everyday will manifest in our muscles and soft tissues.
By receiving massage we are allowing our bodies, minds and spirits to flourish in all the ways they're meant to!
I became a stylist because I wanted a career that would challenge my creative side every day and also allow me to help others. Making my clients look and feel their best drives me to do my best work.

My name is Carley and at Ahava I work up at the front desk. I am responsible for ensuring our clients are taken care of the moment they walk in the door. I also like to keep everything organized and rotated on all of our product shelves and backbar items. With that being said I do a lot of cleaning making sure everything looks good and feels comfortable for our guests.
What I love about Ahava is the connections I not only make with my coworkers but with our clients as well. I also really appreciate the fact that everyone genuinely wants to see each other succeed. It really makes the environment at Ahava safe for you to be completely yourself.
Every day that I go into work and see our guests light up with confidence is a reminder of why I am so blessed to be the Manager of such an amazing salon and spa. I have always had a passion for customer service and working with different people day to day. I take my role as a leader very seriously, knowing I am there to help answer questions and be a resource to everyone within Ahava. One of my favorite roles at the salon is coordinating all of our bridal parties – big and small. Weddings are one of the most important days in someone’s life and I love that I am able to help our salon be a part of that special day!
I also spend a lot of my time up at the front desk assisting our guests and listening to their needs to find a great match within our talented team. I hope to create an outstanding experience for every person that walks through our doors, from start to finish.
My favorite part about working at Ahava is that every day I get to surround myself with strong, like-minded individuals whom I continue to learn from each week. Everybody works together to make sure we all succeed and it’s a very uplifting environment to be in. I have loved becoming a part of the Ahava family and cherish the relationships, not only with the people I work with, but with the amazing individuals that walk through our doors each day.
Over the last decade I have dedicated my time achieving a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Fitness as well as obtaining my Massage Therapy license and Reflexology certificate. I have been a health advocate since a little girl and would spend my free time job shadowing my friend’s parents at local health facilities. I strongly promote massage as one of the best practices for physical and mental release within the body. Whether you are looking for relaxation or pain relief, massage allows your body to find a gentle reset within the nervous system. I offer various massage treatments with optional CBD or hot stone add-on’s, as well as reflexology sessions. Your experience should be unique and customized to your personal well-being goals, and I am here to listen and provide you with just that.
My name is Laura. I became a massage therapist in 2019 when I graduated from Blue Sky School of Massage having completed the Medical Track. In school I especially enjoyed the precision neuromuscular therapy seminars.
My approach to massage is to work with a client’s nervous system to get results. I use multiple modalities like trigger points/holds, Swedish, myofascial release, lymphatic moves, and active engagement techniques when it makes sense according to the client’s goals. I enjoy communicating with clients to establish comfort level and set goals.
Sessions are created to meet you and your body where it is at when you enter the massage space- and so, no two massages are exactly the same. In sessions with clients, I do not have the philosophy of “no pain no gain” because that works against your nervous system and is predicated on the idea that we have to hurt something in order to help it repair/heal itself.
In my free time I enjoy games, hiking, exploring anything Disney related and spending time with my family.
