Veil Of Grace Salon

Jen reached out to Samantha, Veil Of Grace Owner, last year with a growing interest in NBR Extensions.  Jen used to wear tape-in extensions, however, she struggled with the extensions showing.  This was especially a problem when she put her hair up into a ponytail and as her natural hair grew out.

Knowing there had to be a better hair extension method available, Jen began her search on Instagram of course!  Serendipitously Jen found Samantha (@samantha.veilofgrace) and begin to follow Samantha’s NBR training progress.  When Samantha announced that she was ready to take new NBR hair extension clients, she jumped at the opportunity to try them out.  Jen wanted to make a dramatic statement with a color, length and volume.  As you can see in the photos below, Samantha gave her the most gorgeous mermaid hair out there!  Samantha installed two rows of 22″ hand tied wefts, while darkening her grown out blonde balayage for winter.

When Jen first came to Samantha her hair was a bit damaged from being previously lightened throughout the past year.  So this was her time to take a break and enjoy long brunette hair with the NBR hair extension method.  I hope you enjoy these beautiful before and after photos below.

I can’t believe The Veil Of Grace Salon has been open a year!  It really seems like yesterday my husband and I visited the location on a whim and called the realtor that day about the listing.   As you can see from the before pictures it certainly took some creative imagination to turn a previous driving school office into a modern hair salon.  Yes, you did read that correctly, the salon used to be a driving school haha.  It’s bittersweet to see these photos; like looking back at your yearbook when you were in that awkward stage!  Don’t worry we all have those photos.  It’s those awkward times that really make us appreciate where we have come from.

"The Veil Of Grace Driving School"

So, what have I learned in the first year as a salon owner?  The most important lesson I’ve learned is listen to your stylists and clients!  Ultimately stylists need an efficient work space and clients expect a memorable experience.  I set out to accomplish both of these goals by building a beautiful modern salon I could be proud of and one I know both stylists and clients would appreciate.  The positive feedback I have received this year has been incredible.  Definitely makes all the hard work feel worth it!

The Veil Of Grace Salon

As the Veil Of Grace Salon celebrates its first year I would be remiss not to thank all the people involved.  First and foremost my supportive husband.  This past year has been an absolute whirlwind of new challenges with the birth of our first child and the opening of our first brick and mortar location.  What were we thinking haha!  I know this is cliche but I literally couldn’t, or more honestly wouldn’t have opened the salon without your encouragement, guidance and perseverance.

I also would like to thank the Veil Of Grace Manager Sydney for your inspiring work ethic and unwavering passion for customer service.  I attribute every positive review we have received this past year to you!  You are the reason clients and brides alike have recommended Veil Of Grace.  I cannot thank you enough for the time and energy you have invested in creating the Veil Of Grace experience.

Lastly, but certainly not least, a special thank you to all the Veil Of Grace Salon Stylists.  Every single one of you took a chance on me and I will never forget that.  I am completely humbled by your faith in me and look forward to helping you grow as artists in the years to come!

Throughout this past year, we have had great results carrying EVO hair products.  Not only do our clients love the super green product line, but just as important, our stylist do as well!  With every product sold, the Veil Of Grace Salon earns educational points to use on continuing education classes.  These interactive demos are a great way for the stylists to keep up with current trends in the hair world.

Just recently we had a representative from EVO travel from Costa Mesa, CA to teach a hair cutting class apply titled “Commit to the Chop.”  We learned two signature haircuts developed from the top EVO hairstylists from Australia.  Continuing education is the absolute key to success as a stylist and a salon.  At Veil Of Grace, we make sure to push ourselves to explore new techniques, styles and products.  Why would we go to all the trouble?  For you of course!  We want to pass our knowledge along to you, so that your hair isn’t so 2018 haha.  If your looking to spice up your haircut, ask your stylists about what she learned at this great class.  We look forward to seeing in the salon soon!

Ever curious as to what NBR hair extensions could do for you!? Samantha’s client was looking to add some thickness and a bit of extra length to her fine straight hair. With NBR, the most natural hair extension method out there, there is NO DAMAGE, NO GLUE, and NO HEAT that is applied to her hair. With minimal points of contact and a hand sewn base the client is able to have the hair of her dreams.  In as little as three hours she received a fresh new hair color, custom colored hair extensions and hand sewn one row installed.  The pictures don’t lie; the client walked out looking the best she has ever felt!

If you are curious about how the NBR hair extension method and process can give you the hair of your dreams, fill out the contact form below to schedule a complementary consultation with Veil Of Grace Salon Owner, Samantha.

I can probably guess you have never heard of EVO Hair products until now.  Why, because honestly neither had I until about two years ago and I live and breathe the hair industry.  Meaning I’m spending all day behind the chair and all night on instagram.  Which is exactly how I found this amazing salon exclusive product line out of Australia.

When Veil Of Grace Salon was just an idea scribbled on some loose computer paper, I decided if this dream was every going to be a reality I needed to find an all-natural and unique salon exclusive hair product line.  Instagram must have been listening to me blabber on and on about needing to find this line because an EVO Hair ad showed up in my newsfeed not long after.  Before the days of advanced ad targeting I believe this moment would have been called “fate” haha.  Thanks Zuckerberg for spying on me, it actually helped me this time, so I appreciate the assist on this one!

So just what about EVO Hair convinced me that this was the perfect product line for my new salon.  For starters, I really appreciated their honest respect for not only their consumer’s health but the health of the environment.  EVO proudly offers only products that are sulphate, paraben, dea, tea and propylene glycol free.  If your wondering if these things are bad, they definitely are.  Not only are these chemicals bad for your hair and scalp health but their also not very environmentally friendly.  I am certainly not the greenest human on the planet but I try where I can and encourage you to do the same.

Sorry if I am boring you with just how awesome EVO’s mission to be an environmentally conscious manufacture is but they not only omit harmful ingredients but also use 100% recycled packaging and promotional materials.  I’m sure Captain Planet would be proud!  Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, Heart…Go Planet!  If you didn’t get that reference, I’m sorry you must not be a 90’s kid.

Alright, enough of me congratulating myself on finding EVO.  Let’s get into the product line and what it has to offer you!  Veil Of Grace Salon carries the entire EVO Hair product line, including but not limited to the following categories: Face, Body, Curl, Fabuloso, Fabuloso Pro, Hydrate, Repair, Smooth, Volume and Style.  While some categories are fairly self-explanatory, I would like to touch on the Fabuloso and Fabuloso Pro products.

Evo Fabuloso are the coolest color enhancing conditioners on the market.  Available in seven shades, these conditioners can revive your color in between salon visits by boosting the intensity and shine.  As a hairstylist you would think I get my hair done all the time right.  I wish haha, but these conditioners at least make me feel like I do!  When I’m feeling a bit faded I use the Fabuloso to add a much needed color boost in under 3 minutes.

Now if you love the idea of the Fabuloso, the Fabuloso Pro takes the concept one step further.  Where the Fabuloso is limited to seven shades, the Fabuloso Pro has an unlimited number of color shades.  At the Veil Of Grace Salon your hairstylist can formulate your specific color by adding pigments to conditioner base.  How awesome is that!  You can actually take home a bottle of the your unique color to keep your hair looking its absolute best between salon visits.

Morgan had three rows of Hand Tied Hair Extensions installed this past week.  She naturally has really really thick hair!  So one or two rows was not enough hair to blend into her natural hair.  As a high maintenance blonde, and constantly using hot tools for styling, Morgan’s hair has not been growing as fast as she would like.  She always dreamt of long gorgeous hair.  Now, she can have the hair she always wanted with NO DAMAGE! The hair extensions are 100% human hair.  I added a custom blend of extensions to help give her dimension as well as color depth at her roots.

Service Details:

100% Human Hair: lasts 6-9 months

Three Rows of Sewn In Wefts Installed: retighten every 6-8 weeks

Total Time at the Salon: 3 hours

Veil Of Grace Salon was proud to host Ashlee Norman for a two day intensive education course this past month.  As a Santa Clarita native, Ashlee Norman was beyond excited to teach her lock stitch foilyage and razor cutting hair techniques to her local peers.  Not to mention, as a new mom, it’s always nice to work close to home!

Boasting over 100,000 social media followers, Ashlee Norman has developed a significant following with her technical approach to color theory and technique.  As an independent educator, she regularly travels across the United States and Canada to share her knowledge.  So it was quite a treat to have her expertise and hands on guidance in the salon.

The lock stitch foilayage class taught our stylists a coloring technique that marries a baby light and  diffused painted ends. We learned foil placement, practiced with clay lightener, and toning techniques to help achieve the perfect color melt.

Ashlee’s razor and scissor cutting class showed us how to achieve the same haircut with two very different cutting tools.  One with a straight edge razor and the other with our scissors.  Both looks helped produce texture in the hair while creating a diffused soft line instead of a blunt hair cut.  Overall the class was a success and the Veil Of Grace Salon Stylists will continue to keep learning and perfecting their craft. We hope to see you in the salon soon!

Is your hair long but fine?  Adding just one row of hand tied hair extensions can help thicken up your own hair! This extension method uses NO heat, NO glue and creates NO damage to your natural hair. How awesome is that!  After Paulina had her sweet baby girl, like most moms, she lost A LOT of her thick, beautiful hair postpartum.  She felt her hair was especially thinning around her face.  This invisible sewing technique has minimal points of contact and last 6- 8 weeks before it needs to be re-installed.  Paulina now feels like she has the beautiful hair she once had, and the best part is, no one can tell she is even wearing extensions! 😉

100% Human Hair: lasts 6-9 months
