Emily Legge

Founder & Owner

Emily Legge has over 20 years’ experience in the industry and is a local hair legend. She is inspired by her work in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, and Los Angeles – where she has done runway shows for the “E!” channel and worked the stage at hair shows. With extensive high quality experience under her belt, from owning smaller boutique salons to working with private clients, she has now brought her diverse talents to the Monterey Bay Area!

Always looking for the latest and greatest techniques, Emily expands her education by taking classes at Vidal Sassoon on specialty cuts and color, NYC Redken color training, Bumble and Bumble, Orbe styling, Kevin Murphy styling classes, Unite education, and the Botanical Healing Arts College.

Cut, color, style, straightening, keratin – Emily does it all! She has specialized training in hot heads extensions, color matching expert, and styling extensions – (not just putting the hair in). Her interest is in maintaining the integrity of your hair from the inside out. Emily says, “My passion for hair styling is not only on getting the look but keeping it by working with what you have or what I can add! I love working with long hair as well as precision short cuts. I love doing color… blondes to brunette and everything in between.
