Career Salon Company
Salon Ya Ya is positioned as a “career salon company.” We hire only career-minded stylists with a passion for the industry beyond that of a hobbyist or day-job hairdresser. That doesn’t mean our stylists don’t know how to have fun! Our stylists are writers, hikers, comedians, musicians, artists, sports enthusiasts, runners, parents, chefs, and more, but the one thing they have in common is a whole-hearted devotion to the craft of hairdressing as a life-long career, and a desire to offer the guests of our salon complete satisfaction with any service they receive.
Our staff is in it for the long haul. We are building relationships with each other and our communities, as we build our business. Our growth is based primarily on the referrals of our happy salon guest family, and we see no end for the possibilities!
Summit Salons are an elite group of career salon companies that work together and share best practices to ensure the profitability of our businesses and the happiness of our salon guests.

Redken Color & Design Certification
How do you know your color or cut will be right?! Getting color or cut by a colorist that has passed the Redken Color Certification or Redken Design Certification guarantees that you are in capable hands. No matter what your color or cut query, you can rest assured that when you sit in the chair of these professionals you will be getting the best advice and the most competent course of action will be taken.
The Redken Color Certification or Redken Design Certification is known in the industry as the most accurate evaluation of color and cut skills and knowledge in the hair care industry. The Redken Certification encompasses all aspects of the craft of color and cut with three different types of testing. Stylists go through an arduous day of hands-on, situational essay and multiple choice exams. It is so in depth, that it takes 8-12 weeks to grade and get results back.
It is a huge accomplishment for any stylist to be certified.

Courtney Krampf Reyna Waller
“We don’t care how you look coming in. We just want you looking good walking out.” This is one of our favorite quotes from one of our senior stylists, Courtney Krampf. The fact is, we aren’t the kind of salon where you should feel the need to do your hair to get your hair done. It is true that our stylists spend more money and time on their continued education than most in the industry and that our salon is repeatedly named one of the top 200 in the country. However, this does not mean we are “too big for our britches.” We started as a family-owned boutique salon and we strive to keep our atmosphere comfortable and friendly.
Come as you are, pay a fair price, and leave with your expectations exceeded in every way. We want to give you the luxury service you desire without the luxury price tag. Our staff are highly trained professionals, but they still like to have fun. We feel certain that if you give us a chance, you will find our salon to have the most comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere of any salon you have ever visited.
Salon Ya Ya Master’s Program
A lot of stylists distinguish themselves as master stylists, but what does that mean? Well, the fact is, it means a different thing depending on which salon you visit. At Salon Ya Ya, when we say “master stylist,” we mean a stylist that has completed our Master’s Program.
Every stylist we hire goes through a rigorous program of continued education before they ever take a client of their own. During your visit you will notice what might be mistaken as “assistants” doing shampoos, blow-dry styling, color application and foiling. These individuals are actually “associates” going through our Master’s Program. They receive over 1000 additional hours of hands-on, written, and visual education on color theory, chemistry, principle-based design and the art of consultation. When our associates graduate our Master’s Program, they are among the best educated artists in the industry, and that’s just the beginning of our educational journey.
It is our belief that in order to provide the best possible experience for our salon guests, we must stay plugged-in to the main line of inspiration. The artists of Salon Ya Ya participate in educational events, visits to the Redken Exchange in New York, and Symposium in Las Vegas, as well as enjoying in-salon education facilitated by international industry leaders.
At Salon Ya Ya, we utilize a level system to offer our guests the most customized service possible with pricing that accommodates any budget. As each artist meets specific goals throughout their career, they receive a promotion and their level is raised. This is a way to guarantee to our guests that there is no erroneous pricing of talent. Each artist's pricing is strictly based on the demand for their time. That being said, whether you book with a level one or a level six, you will be in the hands of a well-trained artist that has completed a Master of Cosmetology.
