hair color specialist

A salon experience should be relaxing, fun, and it should always end with amazing hair.

I've been creating magic behind the chair for the past 18 years. I know, that's crazy because you were probably just thinking "she looks 25, how can that be!?" *wink*wink*

These days hair trends are changing just as fast as you're scrolling through social media. That's why it's my mission to create the most current looks for today's modern babe---
Hellooo, lived in color!

In 2024 you wanna keep things simple. More time between salon visits, less time fussing over your hair and wayyy more days feelin' your damn self.

That's why I'm obsessed with creating low maintenance color that's designed with every single detail on your #hairgoals wish list. I'm here to transform your mane so that you can look AND feel like the ultimate babe.

I'm always welcoming new guests into my chair. Unless of course you're stuck in 1998 and chunky, stripey highlights are your vibe. In which case,, your girl is alllll booked up. 


Exploring national parks, being the most fun auntie, rad tattoos, adorable cafes with good coffee, and great hats.

Based in San Diego, Holly brings a thoughtful approach to creating the best salon experience from start to finish.

I call Raven Collective my cozy salon-home away from home. It's a hidden gem tucked right along the coast of Encinitas, CA. Our salon is a collective of talented independent artists who are dedicated to the craft
 of creating beautiful hair.

When I'm not painting hair; you can find me boogieing to live music, camping with my loved ones, soaking up vitamin D anywhere possible or planning my next big adventure. 

LOVES: belly laughs, nerding out on podcasts, house plants, horror movies, and stand up comedy

my vibe



memories > things every time. just me?


a little obsessed with my treasure troll tattoo.


happiest when I'm camping. 
desert or mountain vibes.


i splurge on live music, good swimsuits, and travel.

All about

Summer time, doxie mama life, good vegan eats, non-fiction books,  and hot sauce on everything.


Rainy days, crappy coffee, bad music, bullsh*t,
 wearing high-heels, or boring anything.
