The BRIA Team

Our senior professionals that perform services at this location, each holds more than 20 years of salon experience. Stylists perform a range of services, but each is truly a master technician specializing in either cut and/or color. Many of us worked together for nearly two decades at the former Yosh for Hair, an upscale salon in San Francisco. This gives Bria a consistency of culture and a family-like atmosphere where we ensure clients a superior hair experience.
