MONICA WEST began her career over a decade ago at the celebrity filled Sally Hershberger Salon in West Hollywood, Ca. While honing the French highlighting technique, Balayage, she began to think of hair coloring as an artist would draw with charcoal. “In coloring hair, it is as much about shadow and depth as it is about light reflection. It is about taking a highlight and softening and smudging it to creating a glow. That is when hair color gets interesting.” While color is clearly a passion for Monica, her cuts echo the same artistic temperament. Often dry sculpted, she thinks of each clients needs, lifestyle and of course texture in helping creating their new style. Monica really does want her clients to feel low maintenance, effortless and edgy all at once. To book an appointment go to: or call 415-640-1514
