As a young girl Jeovanna was obsessed with the idea of bringing out everyone's best self & having fun while doing it. Growing up in her mom's daycare as her "little assistant" she would entertain the kids by lining up the kitchen chairs & styling their hair with curls, fun gelled-up mohawks, glittery space buns & even face painting! Little did she know this was the beginning of a life-long journey in a creative career as a stylist, salon owner & event festival pop-up shops.
After realizing her talents, she followed her styling passion and graduated 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 a Bumble and bumble signature salon. Jeovanna received exclusive training at the House of Bumble in NYC and at The Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California. It was these two schools of theory where she cultivated her own indy signature of multi-medium craft styling. Working at Salon Tonic and then Salon Hyde Edwards, yet another gold standard salon she was blessed to be amongst the best stylists in the industry where knowledge is prioritiezed. In her spare time, Jeovanna's enjoys traveling with (salon team leader) her dog Taquito & is inspired by experiencing different cultures, people and places. Locally, she regularly supports environmentally forward-thinking organizations like Rhodie Revival, B-Corp, Surfrider Foundation, The Potter League & is an active member of Newport Out an LGBTQ+ organization that provides resources for travelers & the local community. Jeovanna embodies the "all are welcome" vibe she promotes.

"I have kept my integrity by breaking the mold & like to welcome people in from all walks of life. I pride myself on creating the island's first gender-neutral service menu & pricing in 2015. I have created a salon space where I hope that all textures, identities, ages & styles feel 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 high-performing self-care services & sustainable products. When you are in my chair you receive a one-on-one educational style that you will not find anywhere else, ultimately creating a look that is unique to you that you can recreate at home. This warm & inviting salon culture I work hard to keep up is what I believe sets me apart from all others, it's a whole experience & one 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...Jeovanna
