For those who seek the unique and special, it is guaranteed you will not be disappointed when you arrive at Rise Salon in Ojai, California.  There is a cache about this place and this town.  Hidden treasures are all around. Where does all of Los Angeles and beyond migrate to on weekends and holidays, we dare say it’s here!

Rise is a boutique salon filled with talented mostly out of LA – celebrity stylists who will cut, style and color your coif as if you were on a Hollywood set of an “A” list film.  Jen recently won “best stylist” in The Best of Ojai for 2019. Architecturally the space is very well thought out and the design transcends you directly into a feeling of relaxation and down home chic that is uniquely Ojai.  Where you get the sense this is not just a salon, but a community.

Taking luxury to the next level, no wonder the renowned Ojai Valley Inn exclusively sends all of their brides and special occasion event customers to Rise for primp and glamour. LA trained stylists, Heather Andrews and Jennifer Keeler, met and bonded over their desire to bring a premium hair experience to Ojai. Both have personal connections to Ojai—It is where Jen grew up and started her family, and Heather took many trips to Ojai during her childhood. They have joined forces to create a space of luxury hair care along with beauty artistry in the town they love.  Much like saddling up to the bar at “Cheers” this place feels cozy and makes you look forward to coming back for more.
