Leigha is originally from Philadelphia but now calls San Diego home.

“I strive to live a happy and fulfilled life which is the reason I’ve chosen a career that allows me to make others feel beautiful. Previously with Aveda, I had the opportunity to train with some amazing educators in Los Angeles. As a stylist, I feel the biggest key to a great service is communication. Listening and understanding your client’s wants and needs will ensure a positive result. My goal with each client is to enhance their individual beauty and make them feel their best! I also make it a goal to preserve the integrity of each client’s hair by choosing the best, least damaging method to achieve my client’s needs.
I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people who are so passionate about what they do. We feed off each other’s energy and creativity to make every day exciting in our salon. Education is extremely important and we find it a priority to keep up with all new trends and techniques in the industry. I look forward to having you in my chair!”
