When In Roma


Rome - Celio

Hairqueen News

A week in Rome was just what the hair doctor ordered.  It was a glorious week of unplugging from everyday life and immersing myself in the sites, sounds, smells and tastes of Roma!

My husband Michael and I walked over 10,000 steps a day navigating the cobbled streets, piazzas, ruins, restaurants, shops and tourist destinations.

Everywhere I went I looked at heads of hair and clothing styles that would inspire me and pump up my creative juices for my return home.

I have to say I felt at home in Roma, my formative years as an English girl were fed from deep within my bones and I loved it.

I returned home with fresh ideas and my muscles of creativity and inspiration well exercised.

Come see me and we'll add a little Roma to your Spring Look!

We toured Fendi Headquarters!

Runs Businesses With Scissors


I am breathing a huge sigh of relief!  Swans Studios is full again and it feels so good.  I've been in this game for long enough to know that you must always recruit, recruit, recruit especially when business is solid.  

Stylists and clients come and go, life happens and it's not personal even if it feels like it.

Are you working on your business as well as in your business, if not, why not?

Need some support as you tackle the day to day ups and downs, the wins and losses of business life?

Feel free to contact me through phone or email: 510-545-2955 or suzanne@suzannevanhouten.com.

I always love to hear from you!

Call To Action

Dear Clients and Friends,
Please help.
In Alameda County my industry has been extremely hard hit by Covid-19.
On Monday June 29 I spoke with both the Alameda County Public Health Department, ACPHD and the Professional Beauty Association, PBA.Both of these organizations confirmed the complex challenges that hairstylists, barbers, manicurists and estheticians are facing as we approach four months of being closed.
Technicians want and need to work, clients want and need services.It is no surprise that the underground, back yard, secret salon services exist and are increasing in numbers.
Most salon owners and technicians, including myself, refuse to participate in the aforementioned scenario, however, we do understand the necessity for some of making money during a time like this.
Sadly many technicians do not have resources or documentation to qualify for resources.Also many salons operated on an extremely small profit margin at best.
How can you help?
Please contact the ACPHD via phone or ema…

We must style with the times!

HairQueen Help Dear Clients and Friends,

I know it is hard to wait for your postponed salon appointments and we miss you so much!

I took some pictures of my hair with velcro rollers to give you a visual that I hope helps you during #stayhome.

I encourage you to get out your velcro and/or hot rollers and have fun.  (This is best for freshly shampooed hair, but you can throw them in on day two as well.)

Shampoo and condition hairTowel dry gentlyAdd styling productSection hair and blow dry with a round brush or vent brush if it's easier for youAdd velcro rollers or hot rollers and leave in for up to 30 minutesRemove rollers and run fingers thru hair for a soft holdEnjoy feeling coiffedContact me if you have questions and or need help.


Bonus, properly styled hair will last for several days! Here I am on day two. I did not reset my hair, but you could for more volume.  First, spritz with a leave in conditioner or styling mist.  Do not use water.  I recommend Primer 11 by Framesi or Very…

Masked Hairstylist

If you have a hairstylist in your #shelterinplace life, lucky you can get a haircut!

And the lucky hairstylist can do a trial run for what it will be like to return to the salon.
I did this with my handsome husband, Michael. What will it be like to get a haircut again? How will we protect you?  How do we protect ourselves and keep everthing sanitized and safe and creative?  We will need masks, gloves, sanitizer, barbicide, patience and flexibility. I wore a mask and so did MichaelI asked him to sanitize his hands upon arrivalI wore gloves for the consultation, haircut and checkoutAs I did the consultation, he was still maskedFor the shampoo, I had him remove his mask, I wore mineI did the haircut, still no mask on himI applied styling products with the gloves on - that was not greatAnd of course for the payment* I will need to have a way to sanitize the screen on my iPad unless the clients have Apple Pay, Venmo or Zelle *I let hubby pay me with a kiss It was a trial run - it was okay -…
