about us


Lily + Lion is a blend of both delicate & strong, the fierce yet subtle parts which are found inside every person. Jeovanna has a special appreciation for balance & creating Lily + Lion is just evidence of that. She encapsulated both her ideology, a creative outlet & place that births happiness daily, you can tell by all the giggling going on! "Lily" pays homage as well, to her family name. Jeovanna's first name is Lily & is part of a long generational line of strong latina woman in her family who proudly carry the name Lilia, or Lily as her mama prefers.

As a young girl, our founder Jeovanna, was enthralled with the idea of bringing out everyones best self. Growing up in her mama'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, stylist 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 while 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 is obsessed with traveling, architecture & design. Her favorite color is "pattern" and her favorite foods are her moms tacos and her nonnas spaghetti! She gets recharged by experiencing different spaces, places, cultures and people in places like Australia (where she lived for a year) Italy, New Zealand, Indonesia, Fiji, France & all over Mexico. On one magical trip to baja where her family is from is when she met someone very special. The next thing ya 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 Broadway district. Jeovanna started with humble beginnings & has grown her brand into the success that it is now.

"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 since my arrival in 2009 & 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 doing what is "trending" now. When you are in my chair you receive a one of a kind educational service style experience that you will not find anywhere else. This ultimately creates a look that is completely unique to you”. Lily + Lion Salon has curated a collection of minimalist products that are high performing so you don't have to. This warm & inviting salon culture Jeovanna has created is the common thread of 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. Like all great adventures, it's the most fun when shared with other folks like you!




"I love this salon! Best cut, color and experience in Newport. Jeovanna is amazing at helping you find your perfect look. You will leave refreshed, beautiful and so happy every time. My hair has never felt healthier."

"Dear Gents - This salon is for women AND men alike. I always had trouble finding a stylist to deal with my 7 cow-licks without making me look like muppet, she consistently nails it while making the process of getting a cut enjoyable and relaxing"

Lily + Lion's newest addition is the Bronze Bungalow for our babes who want to keep that island girl glow all year long. Our founder, a San Diego native, was used to sun all day every day. But, with a family history of melanoma in her family she has seen the brutal havoc it costs. This made her a strong believer in staying outta those harmful rays. Now she wants to share her glowing secret with you, because who says you can't have it all? We offer clean non toxic solutions that are all custom formulated. So you can choose the lightest natural sun kissed tan or a full resort style bronze.
