The heat wave in San Diego has definitely left us feeling like our early morning hair styling has been in vain. By the time we have left our homes and started our day, the humidity and heat has taken its toll leaving our hair less than perfect! 😉


I am so excited to share the solution to achieving healthy, shiny, silky hair…..THE KERATIN COMPLEX SMOOTHING TREATMENT! I absolutely love this treatment!!

Whether you have coarse curly hair, processed lightened hair or unruly frizzy hair, we have the remedy. I can honestly say in all of my years doing hair i have never seen these kind of results. The Keratin treatment penetrates the cuticle to reduce frizz and curl.

20 Years and Growing Strong!
Jul 29, 2012

As we celebrate our 20th year in business, I am inspired to check in with all of you!

First and foremost, I cannot believe that I am old enough to have a business that is 20 years old!  But, I do and am so proud of the work we have done over these past two decades.

My journey (with my Mom) began in 1992 with a dream to open a salon (well, the dream was mine and I coerced Mom into tagging along).  I remember living in the Hillcrest area and watching the new shopping center being built from the ground up. I knew we were supposed to be there!

Gila Rut hits New York Fashion Week 2011
Mar 07, 2011

Another successful trip to NYFW (fashion week) I’ll share the highlights & keep it short & sweet…………
What’s hot this season? Read on…
The clothing have a beautiful classic look with strong linear edges. It seemed most designers were inspired by the minimal. Beautifully hand crafted materials & soft tones of blue, red & gray were the hit this season.
The hair was classic. Ponytails, lopped ballerina buns & romantic curls all polished to perfection with the help of Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener & the hold of the Control Force hairspray.
The Make-Up was fresh & light with deep tones of peach for the cheeks. The lips were glossy with a hint of pink and for the eyes were a light shadow to give a ‘bright eyed’ look.
Stay tuned for your access to the next shows & fashion trends, coming fall of 2011
