Sophia has a love affair with beauty and art her whole life. It started with crayons which then moved on to her mom's lipstick and rollers and never stopped. It has evolved into a craft and passion that she loves sharing with others. Her goal is to bring out beauty in everyone, sometimes that means enhancing the natural and other times that means pushing into the imaginative.
She has been doing hair since 2006. Her strengths are in color (balayage, blonde, reds, and etc), creative placement, and womens short haircuts. Most of her guests let her have creative freedom, and let her do what she suggests or what she has in mind. She bases her decisions on each individual's personality, lifestyle, and career. She is not afraid of change and doing something different each time whether it's drastic or subtle.
Sophia has been doing makeup since 2005 and she is Mac certified. She has had lot of experience with bridal/wedding makeup and has worked with local photographers doing fashion, many boudoir, engagement, wedding, and beauty shots.

I’m so lucky to do what I love for a living! Since a young age I’ve had a passion for hair and I’ve been very fortunate to have translated this into a rewarding career. It’s not only the creative aspects of my job that I enjoy, but the relationships I develop with my clients. There is nothing more rewarding than the look of joy on the faces of my clients when they love their hair. Most of my clients are regular, long-time customers and have become like family over the years. I’m flattered by the fact that even though some them have moved out of the area they continue to come to me, despite long drives or even plane flights!
Early in my career I was fortunate to be trained at Umberto Beverly Hills. Working there for four years, I started in their apprentice program and moved on to become a stylist. It provided me an amazing foundation of knowledge and technique on which I’ve built my career. Intensive training and weekly classes in cutting, styling and coloring taught me hair is a women’s most versatile accessory. A great haircut and beautiful color is transformational. Now into the 25nd year as a professional stylist, I continue to refine my expertise and stay updated with the latest trends and products. My color of choice is Goldwell as I’ve found it consistently delivers the most vibrant results and I know my clients would agree. Another amazing product that I’ve come to love is the Keratin Complex Smoothing Treatments, what a revolutionary product! The results are truly remarkable and clients have exclaimed that it’s “changed their life” (…well at least their hair!)
While it’s been a pleasure taking care of my Los Angeles clients, I decided to make the move back to my roots (no pun intended;) in the Pacific Northwest. I am thrilled at the opportunity to practice my craft and build my business at Dolce Salon & Spa in Tacoma, WA. I look forward to booking with you soon.

Casey began her hair journey in 2013 when she started at Gene Juarez Academy. She fell more and more in love with school everyday. She finally found something she loved and was extremely good at. After Casey graduated in 2014 she spent 4 years at hairmasters and learned so much more.

Pearl began studying makeup artistry in 2013 and joined Dolce Salon and Spa in the spring of 2016.
Although Pearl’s journey to embracing all things beauty started not that long ago. Her favorite subject as a child was Art and as one can expect, not much has changed! But now instead of drawing people with pencils and painting sunsets with pastels, she uses makeup as her medium. With a background in art, she uses color theory, shading and blending to achieve almost any look on anyone.
So, whether reproducing a clients inspiration photo or getting to create something entirely new, doing makeup is always something she looks forward to.
