Say hello to Glambar!
Mar 28, 2017

Few things in life are as confidence-boosting as the perfect hairstyle. But between work, family and social obligations, it’s not always possible to visit the salon and spa as often as we’d like. That’s why Gila Rut is pleased to unveil GlamBar, our convenient new destination for gorgeous blowouts. You don’t have to block out large chunk of your schedule (or your budget) to enjoy salon-fresh hair–you’ll be shampooed, styled and sent on your way, all within the time span of a lunch break. And because a good blowout lasts at least a couple days (hello, dry shampoo!), a visit to GlamBar is an affordable luxury that will lift your spirits each time you glance in a mirror or get a compliment (which will be often, we promise).

GlamBar styles include body and waves, … Read More

Fashion Week San Diego 2016
Oct 15, 2016

We celebrate our forth year with Fashion Week San Diego. As Creative-Directors, we are challenged with providing fashion-forward thinking with hairstyles for the big runway shows. We draw inspiration, globally and locally. We take special interest by creating looks that can translate into easy wearability for our everyday client.


Each year our lead stylists, Karla Lopez-Martinez, Nadia Provenzano, and Michael Soberanes work year around in developing the looks not only for these fall shows, but for the dozen of events, tv appearances and photo shoots for FWSD.


FWSD hosted 26 talented designers from various backgrounds and styles, making it challenging to compose looks which would work with all their various designs.  We designed the looks to be best experienced from the seats of the audience, giving you something to feel and uniquely experience, like an Ansel Adams, or a Rembrandt work of art.


Our two looks showcased … Read More

Meet Michael – Manager at Gila Rut


How long have you been working for Gila Rut?

In March, I will be celebrating 8 amazing years with Gila Rut! I met the owner, Keri, when I moved here in 2000. Seven years later, I phoned her and said I was coming to work for her company. I knew it would be a perfect match.

What do you love most about working in a salon?

What’s not to love? I adore the culture of our company, from the teamwork and family atmosphere, to helping the guests everyday. I get to work with so many different team members, and it’s always fun to step away from my management role and provide makeup artistry for the guests. I think that the opportunity and balance between business and creativity is my favorite part about working for Gila Rut. I have had the pleasure to work … Read More
