Personal Note:

Hello, 

Thank you for checking out the LCATS.  I am the mastermind and leader at Left Coast Advanced Training Salon where it is my purpose, pleasure and privilege to help develop a new kind of wholehearted hairdresser for the needs of today's client by actively listening and soliciting feedback from the communities we serve in regards to identifying the gaps in order to create the new kinds of service offerings necessary to ensure safe and equitable access to hair professionals who are psychologically safe and talented enough to manage the basic needs of anyone with any kind of hair.  This is my mission.

I am still accepting online bookings for new personal clients on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Regular clients may email me for support with booking on other days and for personal referrals @ kristina@leftcoastsalon.com

Personal Note:

Hi! My name is G, I’m a non binary human who loves doing hair! I desire to empower people emotionally and give them confidence while loving the work I do in a creative field. I've been doing my own hair for over ten years and decided to jump into the field when I lost direction during the beginning of Covid. I have discovered great joy in digging deep into the math and science aspects of the work and really getting to understand the "why and how".  You can trust me to hold a safe space for you and to do my very best each and every time.  I enjoy hearing your feedback and learning how I may improve my services and skills. I look forward to getting to know you and your hair needs.

Hello! My name is Cassidy. I am a CNA-turned cosmetologist. I quit the caregiving profession in 2020 and enrolled in cosmetology school in 2021.  I immediately fell in love. I am so grateful to be thriving in a profession I have so much passion for and to be surrounded by such incredible people.
I have a black cat named Teddybear that I would bring everywhere if I could. I love to do art in my free time and spend time outside. I love connecting with people and I am definitely more of a listener than a talker. I like to take my time in the consultation to really get to know you and  how we can best create looks that will work well with your lifestyle and hair profile.  I love working with kids and am incredibly patient.  I can’t wait to have you in my chair!
