Johanna bought the salon with Shaun in 2006 because she needed to stop giving herself bad bang trims and using color from a box! No, seriously, she did it because she adores Shaun and wanted to jump off a cliff with him in a shared entrepreneurial adventure that is a salon and also a salon—a space for art, ideas, and friendship.
