Chet and Amber started Salon27 in 2015 in hopes of creating a salon space of exceptional education and impeccable hair. There was one more component that they insisted on, supporting the stylist. It was in the DNA of Salon27 right from the start to make a positive space to help stylists reach their goals and full potential in a thriving culture that benefits the team and the guest. Today with so many amazing stylists working together to provide artistry and craft our salon has grown to new heights and we are always focused on the future, together.
We are proud to be a part of the green circle salon community. You may not realize it, but the beauty industry puts out 877 lbs of waste per minute just across Canada and the United States alone.

“Created by our Founder and CEO alongside beauty industry leaders, our award-winning program empowers salons to offset their emissions and recover up to 95% of their beauty waste. That includes previously unrecoverable materials and hard-to-recycle items like hair clippings, foils, excess hair color, aerosol cans, and color tubes”
Amber had been working on her hairdressing craft for over a decade before opening Salon 27 with her husband Chet. Beginning her career in Tampa, mentoring under a celebrity stylist and former Bumble and Bumble educator, she was introduced to the ‘artistic’ approach of hairdressing. During this time she began to develop her eye for detail all while keeping the hair “loose and free”, working on proficiency of the razor cut and the model perfect blow dry. After returning to her native Arizona Amber set her sights on working with the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Salon. Her time with the company further developed her eye for detail, design, and balance. “Being submerged in the culture of geometric shape and precision cutting technique was life-changing for my career.” Now with the creation of Salon 27 Amber brings both her Bumble and Sassoon training together and is creating something special for every client she works with. She continues to be the student learning new techniques to inspire and educate her team of stylists. Amber has traveled all over the US including LA, San Diego, Tampa, Miami, and New York to work her magic and share her passion for the art of hairdressing.

Leila found her passion for hairdressing through Bratz dolls and plastic combs, and coming from a family of cosmetologists it was naturally instilled in her. After completing her cosmetology program she took her first steps by enrolling in an intense training program. She then joined Salon27 to continue mastering her cutting, coloring, and styling skills. Leila loves creating soft and dimensional lived-in color as well as working with natural textures. She is dedicated to continually developing her technique, working alongside our educators. She always strives for more as she continues to master her skills in creating custom details in her haircutting and crafting tailored results for her clients.
