WE'RE A SALON FOR FORWARD THINKING FOLKS AND HERE'S OUR STORY:
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 braids, bows & gelled up mohawks. Growing up she learned to cut & color her own hair, always loved the instant gratification it provided. Little did she know this was the beginning of a life-long styling journey!
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 that pioneered the marriage of embracing natural texture & classical geometric cuts. From there, she moved onto Salon Hyde Edwards, yet another gold standard salon in San Diego. In her spare time Jeovanna is obsessed with music, travel, architecture & being immersed in different cultures. Her favorite color is "pattern or texture" & her favorite foods are her moms enchiladas & her nonnas e'spaghetti! She gets recharged by experiencing different places & people in corners of the earth like Australia (where she lived for a year) Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Indonesia, Fiji, France & all over Mexico. Especially Baja California where she spends many summers & springs with her family. This is the reason you will see "Newports only cactus" outside her salon, don't ever tell her she can't do something because she will figure out a way!

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 what 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 2010 & have created a salon space where all genders, 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 just 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 mindful 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. And like all great adventures, it's the most fun when shared with other folks like you!
