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. As a member of this group, Salon Ya Ya has access to additional training for our stylists, owners and managers to facilitate the growth of our service providers and the complete satisfaction of our salon guests.


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!
