about us

WE'RE A SALON FOR FORWARD THINKING FOLKS AND HERE'S OUR STORY:

Even as a young girl, our founder Jeovanna, was enthralled with the idea of bringing out everyones best self. Growing up in her mom's daycare, she would line up the kitchen chairs & would play pretend “salon” with the kids, as she styled their hair with gelled up mohawks & face paint. Little did she know this was the beginning of a life-long styling journey!

 

After realizing she had true talent, she followed her styling passion and graduated in 2003 from Bellus Academy of Design in San Diego. Shortly after, she took her gifted hands to one of the top 50 hair salons in the country & began her career at the renowned Salon Tonic in Little Italy. There, as a Bumble and bumble signature salon, she was able to receive exclusive training at the House of Bumble in NYC and Vidal Sassoon in Santa Monica. This is where she cultivated her own indy signature of craft styling working & and learning along side San Diego's best. From there, she moved onto Salon Hyde Edwards, yet another gold standard salon. In her spare time Jeovanna obsession with traveling is mostly to get inspired by different cultures and people in places like Australia (where she lived for a year) Fiji, Italy, New Zealand, Indonesia, France & all over Mexico. On that trip to baja where her family is from is where she met someone very special visiting from Newport. The next thing you know, she was leaving San Diego for love & made the town of Newport, Rhode Island her new home... and that is how the Lily + Lion story begins!

lily + lion is born

Lily + Lion Salon was born in Newport, Rhode Island in the eccentric Broadway district. Jeovanna started with humble beginnings building up her follwoing from zero and has grown a lot since then, but Jeovanna believes one thing still rings true... "I have kept my integrity in this industry by always going against the mainstream. I'm here to break the mold of thought that you see in most magazines & welcome people in from all walks of life. I pride myself on having the first gender neutral service menu in town & have created a salon space where all texture, ages & styles are welcome... I believe the most authentic approach to guiding the creation of your own personal style is when YOU play an integral part of the process, rather than always doing what is "trending" now. My goal with Lily + Lion Salon is to curate a collection of minimalist sustainable self care products that are high perfroming. When you are in my chair you receive a one of a kind educational service style experience from me that you will not find anywhere else, this ultimatley creates a look that is completely unique to you”. This warm & inviting salon culture Jeovanna has created is the common thread of all the L+L team & what sets them apart from all others, it is not just a salon, it's a whole vibe where you leave feeling empowered! 

I believe "beauty" is a curious non-judgement journey; an ever evolving adventure in creating the best version of yourself, and like all great adventures, it's the most fun when shared with other folks like you!
