Last Saturday, February 25, we had our first year anniversary extravaganza! We had such an amazing turn out. We could not have had such a successful year without the support of our loyal clients and dedicated stylists.

Here’s a couple highlights from the event!

Stylist Of The Year

The extraordinarily talented Ella Kuzminskiy was awarded Stylist of The Year 2016-2017 and Best Special Event Hair. Not only is she dedicated to her craft, she is one of the first ones to volunteer her help to the Valente Hair & Co team. We love you Ella!

Sal Khader won Most Artistic and we couldn’t be more proud of him! His willing team spirit and attention to detail at his art makes him irreplaceable.

San Diego’s Best Extensions

From one salon owner to another, Michelle & Laura both started off as young salon owners in La Jolla. Michelle Lee, founder of Salon Elle in La Jolla and now celebrity master stylist, has had such an inspiration on Valente Hair & Co owner Laura Valente. Michelle’s specialty is extensions, and her talent led her to win Best Extensions!
