Leanna O

Owner | Brazilian Blowout Certified | Certified SKW Extension Specialist


Leanna’s story isn’t like most hair stylist you come across. She hasn’t been doing hair since she was a kid, or her aunt, grandma, or mom didn’t do hair, or on their heels watching. Nope her story is different…. She never thought of being a hairstylist, she left high school as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Her career choice didn’t change until she was married with two girls and moved 2000+ miles away from home, and even then, it took a few years after before she enrolled in beauty school.

After graduating from Milian Institute 2008 in Fresno, her career aspirations lead her and her two small girls to Sacramento. After five years she opened her own salon suite at Studio 55 in the elite Pavilions Shopping center. There she created a space where women could feel at home and comfortable in her intimate modern studio, over a cup of coffee, tea or maybe wine, while laughing watching Ellen.

What the client loves most about Leanna is, she is just like one of their girlfriends. Fun, down to earth, and a good sense of humor.  “I keep it real and honest. Listening to her client's goals, and being their professional hair coach, is a combined effort to keeping my client’s hair healthy and looking awesome. My goal is for these women to leave feeling inspired and refreshed.”

This industry allows her to merge what she loves best - hair, fashion, photography and authentic beauty all under one umbrella. “Bring awareness to someone of how amazing they truly are, is worth doing what I love every day!”

Hair Extensions is one of Leanna specialty services she offers. With her knowledge on many extensions techniques like Hand-tied extensions, sew-in, tape in and now a certification in SKW Extension, she can seamlessly revive your look. SKW Extensions is a method where hand-tied wefts are customized to give you a more of a seamlessly, natural, breakage and pain-free way to wear your extensions. Using only premium quality hair, staying invested in her craft and having good energy is essential for Leanna so she can ensure she is giving her clients the premium and quality care and service her client's need and expects.
