Our History


Faces was established by two beautiful sisters, Ann and Toni, in 1976. They had a vision for a full service salon and they did an incredible job establishing one of the most successful salons in Santa Cruz. They brought in special guest artists and industry experts, facilitated community events, and created a space for beauty and wellness education, as Faces still does today. ¬†After working with Faces for six years, current owner Lisa bought the salon from the second owner, Laurie, in February 1992. Since then, she has employed over 300 professionals, not counting the previous owner’s staff.
