Bow to Thee

I cut, I color, and now, I will write a poem or two!

I Miss All Of You!

Dear Clients, As you know I am closed for all hair services until the ban is lifted. I, along with so many other small business owners, am both in shock and action. Last week I did a mad tidy up / sort out of Swans Studios all the while appreciating my wonderful janitorial service and Lorenzo, my behind the scenes assistant. This week I have focused on updating my website and my booking system. I have added an online store so as of today you can purchase gift certificates and, very soon, salon products via Vagaro, my booking system.  Click here to visit the store . Me meditating on what do I do now? Please contact me if you have any questions regarding your hair and beauty needs.  I miss talking to you and I hope you are all healthy and staying home. Call me or email me at or 510-545-2955. And if you would like a way to help please go online and support my social media accounts Facebook Suzanne Van Houten,  Facebook Swan Studios ,

Now Closed For Business

Since this last post was written we are of course closed until April 7 or longer if required. Stay tuned for upcoming Bloggs and stay healthy! Dear Valued Clients, I am open for business. Upon your arrival I have a hand washing station for you to use. All surfaces and implements are disinfected and sanitized after each client. I wash my hands a lot already from shampooing to washing color bowls, and now I am washing my hands even more. I will not work if I become ill or am exposed to the virus. Please give me as much notice as possible if you need to reschedule. I ask for at least 24 hours notice but more is very much appreciated. My schedule may move around and we want to reschedule beautiful you sooner than later. If you have questions or concerns please contact me directly at 510-545-2955 or by email

No Nothing

Featured Product For March For the month of March, I am featuring a promotion on No Nothing Hair Care. For years and years, many of my clients have requested a no scent, no fragrance, chemical free hair care line. When my rep, John, told me about it I said Ok, I'll try it- and I have to say I really like this line. I like how my hands feel after I shampoo my clients.  I like how my hair feels when I use the products at home and at the pool. So far my clients that have tried it have given very good feedback!   If you have a need for a scent free products and you would like to try a great hair care line, let's talk.
