Roni Ryan


I studied the art of hair in Reno, NV at the Paul Mitchell Academy. It was there where I first had shears handed to me and never turned back! Coming into this industry I thought color would be my passion, little did I know cutting was such a exhilarating experience. I enjoy color and trying new things but cutting and styling is where my heart beats for this industry. I am now living in the beautiful city of Los Angeles and styling hair here for almost three years. There is so much out there and so much to learn. I like taking on things that challenge my mind and skills. I will never turn my head away from a great experience or trying something new! Eager and excited to learn, grow and build a strong and beautiful clientele. Come visit our salon and get the treatment you have been looking for!

My passion for beauty started in the world of make up. I was inspired by my team mates who were hair dressers which lead me to my current position as a stylist. I am inspired to help make this world a beautiful place and to make people feel great about themselves. 


Cristina Romeo


Cristina Romeo’s diverse and versatile background has kept her perpetually moving toward achieving her greatest potential.
At the age of 7, Cristina began to show an interest in theater arts. Her inner creativity yearned to express itself. So when on stage, it was only natural for her to act and get involved with learning the techniques of stage makeup. She found a muse in the ability to transform into the characters she portrayed through the use of makeup. Cristina ultimately became a member of the International Thespian Society.
Her newfound love for makeup propelled her toward pursuing a career in the industry. She attended Joe Blasco Makeup Academy at the original Sunset Gower Studios. After a year on intensive daily curriculum, she realized this was the path for her. Cristina moved forward and became a salon artist for years.
She then ventured out to San Francisco, New York and even Florence, Italy where she experienced the highlights and pitfalls of a budding freelance artist. Upon her return to the salon industry, Cristina knew she needed to create her own environment to blossom as a creative force. Through commitment and passion, her company was born.
With a continual effort to learn, expand and create, she has embarked upon the freelance world once again from an established and successful business owner perspective.
Cristina has collaborated, worked with and for with a high profile list of clientele. Allowing her the opportunity to participate in the following professionally creative experiences as a lead director of makeup teams at numerous company’s fashion shows and events.
