Answers by Katie Chacon

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you? 

We opened our salon space five years ago, taking a huge leap of faith on a blank canvas, making it our own, and adding a balcony overlooking Sutter Street. We’ve continued building our salon culture and community ever since. 

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

We love getting involved with any and all of the Historic Folsom events—from hosting carolers for the Christmas tree lighting to the Sutter Street Sip and Stroll. Our clients love that our location brings amazing activities and events that they’re able to participate in firsthand.

Why is your staff the best in the business?

Our staff is, hands down, the best in the biz. These women are talented, hardworking, and kind, with a little sassy kick to boot.  

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

I have an amazing group of friends who are there through thick and thin. Also, kayaking on the river is music to my soul. 

What’s your hidden talent?

Cooking and creating yummy new recipes.

 What’s your biggest job perk?

Working with fun, inspiring people. 

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

Marly and Moo. 

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

We’re so fortunate to live near the Johnny Cash Trail and head out there as often as we can. 

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

True North Cycle. 

And finally, customer service is…?

Everything. Clients mean the world to us, and we make every effort to provide them with the best of the best.

Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased?

In fact, our Introducing and Eat & Drink section reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
