Hi, I'm Lola and I have the coolest job ever. After working as a Salon Coordinator and Make Up Artist for a few years I decided to try my hand as a hair stylist. I entered the Thirteen Apprentice program in 2009, completed the required program and am now working on the floor as a Stylist. I have learned a lot here at Thirteen; technical skills, creative freedom, client interaction and how to be a successful team player. The best part of my day is walking on the salon floor, spending time with great people and watching them walk out the door with beautiful hair.
I graduated from Cosmetology school in 2007 and started working for Thirteen Salon in 2008. I love my job, I enjoy meeting all the great clients that come in and making them feel good about themselves.
At Thirteen I can always count on my co-workers and am always learning new techniques and ways to approach the hair. The apprentice program has been a wonderful asset to me and my clients!

"I have been in the industry since 20. I always knew I wanted to do hair, even in kindergarten! I graduated from beauty school at Solano College in Suisun right out of high school and have worked in 5 salons in the East Bay. Advanced training includes Vidal Sassoon, Paul Mitchell, Hairrone Salon extensions boot camp in Hollywood, Sexy Hair Concepts, and of course Thirteen Salon! I can do everything from conservative "pretty" hair to edgy "punk rock" hair. Men and women..........and children (if they're well trained, ha ha)
I am also an Artistic Educator for Sexy Hair Concepts. I teach haircutting and product knowledge to hairdressers around California and hope to one day go international.
I absolutely love what I do and the people that I work with here at Thirteen!"

I graduated from cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell, the school, East Bay in 2011. I am an apprentice going through Thirteen's advanced training program and have loved every minute of it. I am learning different techniques of color and cutting as well as the in's and out's of the salon. I am so lucky and very happy to be part of their team. I am fortunate enough to be working under such talented people. Thirteen is paving my way to a bright future as a stylist. I love the people I work with and I can't wait to be a stylist on the floor at Thirteen.
"I started in the beauty industry at the age of 16 as a salon assistant and I absolutely fell in love with the salon atmosphere!

My salons are Carsten in Phoenix AZ, Taglio in Scottsdale AZ and now Thirteen Salon in Walnut Creek CA. I spent 10years with LaStone Therapy developing and teaching the Skin Therapist program across the US and internationally."

Graduating from the Paul Mitchell, the school, in 2010 I was cautious to start work in just any salon. I feel fortunate to have found and been welcomed into the family that is Thirteen Salon. As a clinical esthetician for the past four years, I have found that I love making people look and feel good. I can't wait to be able to create the same looks for clients as the stylists on staff.
It is a privilege to be part of the apprentice program, learning skills from such talented and experienced stylists. I truly love people, doing hair, helping people look and feel their best, learning new things and being part of an awesome salon family.
