As the only official Aveda Salon and Spa from Woodland Hills to Camarillo, The Chair Aveda Salon and Spa is a family owned business that aims to make clients feel right at home.
“Our clients feel at home here; our staff treats everyone as a member of our family. Every single person that walks into our doors feels welcomed,” says Fernanda Silva, who opened The Chair in 2017 after her local Aveda salon closed its doors and personal life circumstances led her to realize the importance of self-care.
“We are always so busy taking care of everything else that we forget about ourselves,” says Fernanda. “I decided I wanted to give back. I wanted to make someone else’s day better too.”
Joining forces with senior stylists Janet Orozco and Heather Jasinski and equipped with a Marketing and Communication background and years of experience working with customers at the Spa at The Four Seasons Santa Barbara and Saks Fifth Avenue, Fernanda opened The Chair.
“During the three years we’ve been in business, we’ve grown very close to our community,” says Fernanda, a single mother of two young children who appreciates being part of a close-knit circle. “I truly enjoy getting to know the people in our community. We definitely create a bond; it’s so pleasant to keep in touch and catch up. When our stylists make our clients feel beautiful, and they walk away with a smile, that’s when we feel the most fulfilled.”
We caught up with Fernanda to learn more about what makes The Chair such a special place.
