Hello, I am Deb, founder of Salon 1322. It’s great to meet you! I want to share a little about who I am, how Salon 1322 and my interest in hair started.
I was born and raised here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up, my biggest influencer was my Mom. I watched my (unlicensed) mother doing hair in the kitchen for anyone that would sit there and allow it. I admired her natural talent, her personal style and the knack she had for styling women's hair. She did it with a passion, which she passed down to me. It wasn't long before I was doing my friends' hair while in Junior High School. I entered cosmetology school right out of high school.
I am married to my best friend and we have two smart and beautiful daughters and a rescue dog. I enjoy Spartan OCR training and yoga on my off days. I love dining out with family and friends since I love good food and sharing a great meal is the ultimate bonding experience for me.
I started Salon 1322 when I turned 24 after working there as a stylist for a few years. It was called Prime Cut back then. I've now have been there for a couple decades. It feels strange to say that since the time has flown by. Yes, it really does fly by so quickly when you enjoy what you do.
I pride myself on being a good listener and I like to hear all the details about my guests’ struggles with their hair, like what’s working and what’s not. I can then match the best hairstyle to fit their lifestyle, with how much time she has to spend on it. This is how I offer a tailored experience to each guest.
Keeping up on advanced techniques has helped with my knowledge and inspiration to deliver the best plan for the client’s hair texture, head shape and current trends. Also important to me is the daily routine of styling and the benefit of maintaining healthy hair at home. I spend time coaching that. Your hair should feel as amazing at home as it does the day you leave the salon.
I enjoy making women look their best with a suitable, modern look without too much fuss. Wearing the hairstyle effortlessly, changing with them over time, and with the times. I like to offer a look that is current without looking like you’re trying too hard. Looking great for your age is my goal.
I enjoy the detail of cutting shorter hair and offering styling choices wearing your organic texture as an option. If you like the idea of having healthy, stylish, easy-to-wear hair, we might be a match.
Inquire below if you still have questions. You can fill out my New Guest Form and I will respond within 24 hours. We can then schedule a consultation or book your desired service.
If our schedules don't seem to mesh, no need to worry, there are several other stylists at 1322 that can help you with your needed service and time. I work a couple days a week at the Salon. I also manage The Collective Group that works at 1322.
They are a talented group, each invested in the same high quality standard of education and salon experience that I am.
Collectively, they offer more days, times and different services than I do. I confidently will recommend them when I can’t accommodate due to schedule or service requests that aren’t in my wheelhouse. If you would like to have a consultation with a stylist of The Collective Team, there is a general inquiry New Guest form. Depending on service you are looking for and time available, it will be directed to a stylist.
