We Did It!

We did it!


After 12 years of starting and growing dk hair, David Valencia has sold his half of the partnership so that he and Tina could follow their passion, align with the leaders in the hair industry and take the craft and commerce of hairdressing to the next level. As part of the Creative Counsel, Tina and David have joined forces with “some of the most forward thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the business that are a think tank of top editorial and salon stylists and educators.”


What does that mean for our clients?


It means that we are the 1st salon in San Diego to offer you the full portfolio of LBP brands, where you can choose from a range of professional products that support your stylist and your haircare needs rather than mass-market retail chains.


It means that we have researched and tested color lines and have decided to use Goldwell. “Goldwell is an exceptional artisanal color line with a rich educational ethos, very similar to how we see ourselves,” said Daniel Kaner, co-founder and co-president of Oribe Hair Care (LBP). “This alliance gives both brands an artistic edge that integrates cut, color and styling.


It means that we are in the midst of building out a new studio space that reflects innovation designed by Sebastian at www.Factoryhaus.com. Located in Banker’s Hill (where parking is plentiful), it is currently a diamond in the rough, and you will be able to follow the progression from conceptual phases to project completion via this blog.


In the meantime, you will not miss any appointments as we are taking clients at our pop up location at Phenix Salon Suites in the new Vantage Point building on the corner of 10th and A street downtown. Bring $10 for the parking structure provided or coins for metered parking and you will be reimbursed for your parking fee at the completion of your service.


We stand for the Culture of Hairdressing. We invite you to go Rogue with us – we promise your salon experience will never be the same.
